My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing


See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Compaq Presario C500 cooling fan doesn't turn


I have the same model. Even though the link below is for the Presario C300, the disassembly is identical.

just click on fan/heatsink assembly. All the steps that you need to do beforehand are on the left hand side. It's a lot of work, but worth it. Good luck!

Compaq Presario Recovery needed??


If the compaq has not had the hard-drive altered, there is a restore partition. Normally you require recovery disks to start this process, but you can turn the computer on, and press F11 repeatedly to access the partition. I'm not sure what will happen without the recovery disks, but it's worth a try.
I am assuming the Compaq/HP system restore utility in Windows is long gone?
