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

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

I just got this Compaq F700 from brother in law and the keyboard is messed up. When I type it jumps all over and puts letters in between other words. What is the problem and can it be fixed?


Try cleaning under the key with a tin of contact cleaner,do the keys feel stiky when you press them?
other than that get a new keyboard off e-bay for about £10 - 20
their a pice of pi*s to fit.

I have a Compaq Presario F700, how can I activate s-video out?


On most laptops it a simple case of pressing two buttons together, usually th 'FN' or 'Function' Key and 'F5' (press fn first, hold down then press f5) Yours maybe slightly different and use a different F key ie F3.

My compaq presario f700 laptop boots when it wants


Your system is damaged. You need to have Vista cd. (or xp, or linux, etc) Then you must get to Bios, or bootmenu. When laptop boots, it is on a screen what key to press to make bios or menu running. Maybe f2 or del, maybe f12. When you in Bios, search something like bootmenu, or advanced bios features, then - first boot device. Make it as -cdrom. Press enter or maybe page up/down to change it. Now you must save this by pressing f10 or some key for save, and pressing y. Comp will boot again and run from Vista cd. In its menu you have option repair, but not always this will work (If you doing it with xp, forget to repair Vista). Try this, and if not working, reinstall system on the same partition. Dont format drive, just install, it will give you no loss of data (with xp, i dont think so, you just have to format system partition, but if you have something on second and more, non system partition, dont format it, data on this second will be ok). This it for instalation. After, you will have old vista in some folder (With xp you dont). You should delete this folder when everything works. Do not delete the new one :) No, no, you will find it easy, it should be something like -oldwindows. Better to remove it, cos' it takes a lot of hd. After it all try to find some good antivirus to avoid situations like this.

Compaq presario f700 enter key will not work and while typing it skips around


I have a laptop where the enter button and delete button dont function(and I know why cos my brothers mrs soft cow spilt wine over the keyboard) anyway it dont bother me much cos I use the mouse for most things ; but if I need to have use of enter or delete I either plug in an external keyboard or I use the on screen keyboard. (start...all programs....accessories...accessability)
you can also get a roll up keypad,usb.last option you'll have to go ebay for keyboard

Keyboard


Okay, if I am reading this right, you type but get numbers where there should be some letters? There should be a NUM LK key or such on your laptop keyboard. It may be sharing a key. Check around, its there (or something very very similar). Once you find it, you will have to hold down your "fn" key and then tap the NUM LK key. Now type a sentence that includes the letters that show up as numbers and see if there is a change. It could be that your Number Lock key is on. Let me know if this does not work so we can try something else.
