Continuous beep could be a stuck key. Swap out keyboard to test.

SOURCE: compaq presario v2405us can't boot up

I did not get if the keys are working. If not, check the keyboard ribbon. It might be out of place.
Else, it might be the hdd.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Notebook

you have gone into XP's backup and restore and reset your dell to a previous point right http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490854.aspx ?and if it was this way the first time you booted up it might have been installed wrong and it will need to be manualy serviced unfortunately most companies don't give restore disks any more, if your dell came from a retailer and it is still under 3 month the store should reinstall xp for you and if it isn't the store still might do it, dell might also offer a mail in fix for ya, if that doesn't work you can always go to best buy's geek squad and when you get it fixed make sure to make a backup disk using windows backup and restore, vista has software to use to make a back up disk i dont know about XP
geek squad or dell might haveto do that for you but it could cost you

SOURCE: Hearing continuous beep sound at startup that disappears on Esc

I started having the smae problem yesterday with my Acer 1410 bought end of 2009. It started after I had stoped some suspicious process to work on start up (using msconfig). During the night I scanned the computer for virus but found nothing. Tonight I will enable those process to work on start up again and see what happens.
I will post the information tomorrow.

When i am installing windows xp3 in compaq presario cq40-301tu there displayed blue screen error....do u know the solution to get out of this error & continuing the installstions??


A) Installing same version of Windows, or a lesser version;

Enter BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM.

{Windows doesn't like being copied over by the same version, or a lesser version.
The above will make the computer boot up from the Windows XP sp3 disk you have}

B) If your computer came with a version of Win Vista, and you are trying to install WinXP over it, reply in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment

OK download that service manual, follow the troubleshooting procedures and you will sort your problem out in now time, i have a hunch, that your HDD, is faulty... and may need replacement. Anyway Download and use that manual, it's a generic one.. but will still work for you.

Sir i have hp compaq cq40 laptop having win xp .it got effected by some virus . whenever i try to boot it it gives error in some blue screen nd stops processing without booting up windows


Try starting the laptop in SAFE MODE.

To do this turn it off and wait 20 seconds. Then press the power button to restart, and as it is starting up press F8 every second or so until you get a screen that offers options - one of these options is to start in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. Select this option and the laptop will start up Windows in SAFE MODE. The screen will display in low resolution (Large icons etc.)

From here you have the ability to run anti-virus software and diagnose problems. If you don't have anti-virus then try downloading MalwareBytes (google it) and run that - it is a free virus and malware detector.

If your machine will not start in safe mode you may have a hardware problem.

I have compaq pc presario c300 i cant open windows meaning when i start up my laptop the xp window is just come n go faster (popUp)


When you boot up press F8 function key and Windows will give a list of boot options, select Last Known Good Configuration and hopefully Windows will start up correctly. If not boot up again, press F8 and select Safe Mode and Windows should boot up in standard VGA display mode.
If this doesn't work you need the Compac restore CD disk that came with your laptop. Boot up with this CD to restore your laptop, you most likely will lose data.
