This is what i would do. If the warenty is out, then flip ur laptop upsidedown, and u will see a few plates which you can remove, after removing ascrew. Find the one which contains the Memory RAM, and pull the ram out, blow it off a bit, and stick it back in. If that dont help, remove the harddrive as well. try booting with out it, or without the cd rom. What exactly does it do? do the fans turn?

My compaq presario c700 will not boot and it's saying that there is no bootable device, insert boot disk and press any key, however, i do not have a boot disk


Your Compaq did not detect the hard disk, that is why it is asking for a bootable device such as a boot floppy disk.
Check the BIOS configuration to see if the hard disk is detected, if not then re-seat the hard drive and boot up the Compaq again.
If it still does not boot up, then the hard disk is probably faulty.
To get the Compaq operating again, replace the faulty, install Windows operating system on the new hard drive, plus the Compaq's device drivers and your programs.

Hello sir i have vista home basic installed in my laptop that is compaq pressario v3424au series but my c drive shows low disk space and i have no format disk sohow i can solve it


Does your laptop meet the basc requirements for this operating system? You can check at http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hcl/default.mspx Really, go there and check your computer against the listing. If you arent sure after looking, there is a Test you can run ... the test will tell you the answer to your question. If you are still unsure, the HP (compaq) web site has similar features and tests. Go there and get the info you need.

If you are Vista Basic qualified ... Your options are

a) remove some of the unused programs and data (pictures, video, documents) from your drive. Video files are HUGE.

b) upgrade your drive

Formatting your drive will not solve your problem.

If you MUST keep the data files, I suggest you invest in an external USB drive. Store the data files (video, pictures, documents, etc.) on your external drive.

That will fix your trouble.

Compaq V3424au that has a blank screen on startup with all lights


You could have a defective LCD screen, If the laptop appears to be booting up and running and the hard disk is spinning and the hard disk LED light is flashing but the screen is dark then, to determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
