Cant set BIOS

I am working on a Compaq Presario SR2010NX .. for some reason if anything is plugged into a usb port then the computer wont boot up. I know it needs to be changed in the BIOS. Problem is when I access the BIOS it wont read the keyboard. I have tried both a usb and a Ps2 keyboard but neither one will work once in BIOS. Both work fine in windows thou. I would use it for target practice but im trying to fix it for a friend.. Any ideas???

SOURCE: my system wont boot.. @ once..need many try to make it boot...

Hey there jolen 323. The issue may be related to your power supply failing, however that would be a pain to replace, so lets consider that video idea. If iyou have a video card, remove it and connect your monitor to the onboard video. If this is effective, replace your video card. Next check your motherboard capacitor to ensure you have not popped any. Normally they are flat on top. When they begin to peak or somtimes burst, there is your problem and may also be related to power supply issues, or poor memory configuration. Also ensure your ram is in good condition and the proper type for your board. If using more than 1 stick, try removing the one furthest from the CPU, and give a test start. the only thing left is to replace Power supply if you are confident in the board. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Bios could not be loaded error code

Sure , you need to change the battery in your motherboard. Often it looks like a silver coin. What happens is that your bios setting are reset to default each time you restart PC, before updating bios (that is the solution from hp that you are trying), change the battery.

SOURCE: Monitor goes blank after seeing XP during boot up.

did u replace the video card with the same kind of model ? i guess yes ... when system starts hit the f8 key and than go in to safe mode ... mouse wont work so use arrow on the keyboard .. and in the safe mode just log in to admin account if available or login to ur account and see if that still happens .. and if it doesnt ... remove the drivers for the graphic card from add and remove programs and restart the system and go in the normal mode and than install the drivers again ... and if the display disappears in the safe mode or u have install a different graphic card than ... reseat the memory cards and that should resolve the issue .... if that doesnt work out when the system starts hit f1 and stay on the BIOS screen for 30 mins if the system doesnt loose display than u need to reinstall OS ... that will surely work out ... the resolutions given above if u follow them correctly u will have a working system in no time

SOURCE: My USB ports no longer detect devices when plugged in.

Updating, or in some cases reinstalling, the drivers for your computer's USB interface should resolve this issue.
Locate the iPod in Device Manager

  1. Connect iPod to the computer.
  2. Quit iTunes if it launches.
  3. On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
  4. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools. Note: If you don't see Administrative Tools, look at the left column in Control Panel for a link that says, "Switch to Classic View," and click it.
  5. Double click the Computer Management shortcut.
  6. In the left column, click on Device Manager.
  7. In the right column, click the plus (+) icon next to Universal Serial Bus controllers to expand this selection.
  8. Locate the iPod in this list. In some cases one of the entries will have "iPod" in its name. If no such entries are present, the iPod is most likely represented by "USB Mass Storage Device."
  9. Note: A red "X" appearing next to the iPod's entry in Device Manager indicates this device is disabled. To enable this device, right-click its entry in Device Manager and choose Enable from the shortcut menu.
  10. Update the USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Update Driver from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the Hardware Update Wizard that appears, select "Yes, this time only" to allow Windows to connect to the Windows Update Website. Click Next.
    3. Select "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" and click Next. Windows searches for updated drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, continue with step #4.
    4. Click Back.
    5. Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click Next.
    6. Select "Search for the best driver in these locations."
    7. Select "Include this location in the search" and type the following in the field below: C:\Windows\INF
  11. Click Next. Windows searches this location for drivers and installs any it finds. If Windows is unable to find updated drivers on its own, you must reinstall the USB drivers as shown below.
  12. Note: During installation, if a message appears stating that the software you are installing "has not passed Windows Logo testing" click Continue Anyway to continue installing the drivers.
  13. Reinstall USB driver
    1. Right-click the iPod's entry in Device Manager and choose Uninstall from the shortcut menu.
    2. In the resulting dialog box, click OK.
    3. In the Device Manager window, right-click Universal Serial Bus controllers and choose Scan for hardware changes from the shortcut menu.
    4. Windows automatically reinstalls the necessary USB drivers and attempt to remount the iPod. Regards...

Installed lynex on my compaq presario sr2010nx and i cant get the sound to work


Make sure the audio drivers are in the device manager. Make sure the volume is turned up and not muted. Look at the Audio/Sound properties in the Control Panel and make sure they are not muted and the volume is up. Make sure you have the speakers plugged into the light green port on the computer and that the speakers are on and the volume is turned up.

Make sure there is a harddrive installed in the computer, If there is make sure there is a operating system installed on the hard drive. If that checks out, boot up the BIOS by turning it on and press DELETE untill BIOS Menu comes up and then configure your hard drive to boot in the priority menu.

Black Screen Compaq Presario


Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.

USB ports


When you computer boots up you need to enter the cmos mode. Normallly it's the F-8 fuction key, but sometimes it can vary from pc to co. When you get inside the CMOS screen look for the usb ports, they should have a Enable/Disable. I am pretty sure that for some reason, the default is Disable.

Try this and let me know if this fixes the issue.
