Try this, when you get to the red & white screen, down below it is instructions to press one of your F-Keys. F2, F3 etc, to get it to go to your setup screen. press the appropriate F-Key to go there. when you are there, at the bottom of the setup screen, there should be a button for loading your default settings, Load your default settings, press the keep and save button and exit. good luck.

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

I have a compaq desk top sn mxf7110ltl why am i having a white screen


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions EIDE SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

computers need power and data to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers
You might need to upgrade your graphics card drivers

you might have to remove your graphics card to make sure the socket is clean
restart your computer the reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

if you get a screen
if your computer came with a mother board disk the drivers could be on it


click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system

also you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes


hope this helps

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/contacthp?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=3292430

Use the above link , and chat online with a customer service rep, give them your compaq model information along with the correct operating system and they can send you one to your home. Hope this helps. Otherwise just format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system again, just make sure you have a good copy of windows xp or vista before you format the hard drive.

Got a compaq desk top model SR2177CL went in and adj. hibernation settings now the screen keeps flickering what is that?


Hi i'm Rain.
It sounds like the settings you have selected may not be what the factory decided. Return the settings back to the way they were.
check to see if that corrects the problem. { Note always reboot after changing settings to ensure that the change takes affect}.
Turn monitor off wait a few seconds then turn back on.
if problem is fixed you can retry to make the changes .
