If it keeps trying to restart it sounds like a problem a lot of HP and Compaq models are having. If you can get on the Compaq or HP website, they list all the models they are offering a one time fix at no charge, even if out of warranty.( My wife just had the same problem with her HP}

Computer is not working


The computer may be in hibernate or standby. Try pressing the space bar, and then wait a moment. See if anything happens. If nothing happens, press the power button for one second and wait a moment and see if anything happens. If nothing occurs, you may need to force a restart.

To force a restart, hold in the power button for approximately 15-20 seconds, this should force the computer to turn off all the way. If holding the power button doesn't do the trick - you can unplug the computer from the wall and take out the laptop battery as a last resort.

Once you are sure the computer is off all the way, press the power button and see if anything at all shows on the screen. If you are not able to see any information on the screen, it is possible that the Laptops screen has gone bad. If you have an external monitor you can try to plug into it and see if anything shows. If nothing shows, it is possible the video card/motherboard is gone bad.

To fully diagnose a bad motherboard or video card - you would need to take it to a qualified computer technician.

Presario blank screen


I think this might be a common problem caused by windows sleep/hibernate not working (MS never actually got it to work well)
Try holding down the power button for 30 seconds. Wait 10 seconds, then start up again. If you get the same problem, try tapping the space bar repeatedly...
Otherwise your going to need to boot off a windows disk, and do a re-install/repair.

Compaq Presario SR1000 won't boot up completely :(


Hi Thanks for your question
I would suggest to enter "safe mode" and then do system restore again. To do this you need to follow these steps.
1.Turn your PC on and press F8 on start up. This should take you to the screen asking what you want to do. 2. Choose safe mode from the list and press enter. 3. Once safe mode loads you should be asked if you want to restore your system to previous state. Just press no to run system restore and follow steps (you already know how to do this)
Shutting your computer down without closing operation system properly may cause start up issues like this one.
I hope this helps you. Good luck
