Question about HP Computers & Internet
I have a HP Compaq Presario Intel Pentium Desktop computer. I have had it for approximately 5 years. I was on Itunes yesterday syncing my new ipod and it locked up. The result was to hard reboot by turning it off. It started fine but now when I turned on the computer I hear the fans and an instant of booting up then nothing. It stays on the Compaq screen and the keyboard does not repond. I disconnected everything and reconnected and it does the same thing. Can you tell me what type of problem this cold be?
Do you have an wireless adapter. If yes, disconnect it and connect to the web using Ethernet instead. I have the same problem with my compaq presario. Probably some drivers. FYI. My adapter is "buffalo

Its funny you mentioned this problem because not more than 5 minutes ago I was researching something that is inexpensive to fix and could be your solution. On the motherboard there is a small battery called the CMOS battery. It keeps a small amount of electricity on the motherboard when it is turned off so the date and time stay correct. The lifetime for those batteries are 5 years and once they get weak you start getting all kinds of strange actions that do not seem related. So try changing that out first. It is a small battery that looks like a watch battery, .4 volts normally. You can pick them up at any place like Wal Mart for a couple of dollars, may save you money and headaches in the long run. But take yours out first so you know the exact voltage. Try this first it may be all that it is, because the symptons your computer is having is not relating to any common solution. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.
