    When you say reboot, do you mean reinstalling the operating system (windows)?


    If so when it says rebooting what is before that?

On startup hit delete or whatever button your computer uses to get into bios. Then change the disk boot priority to make the cd drive 1st. Then when you restart the computer hit any key to boot from the cd. Is this what you wanted?

I have a Compaq Evo D51C and it does not boot at start-up...screen goes to black with sideways white dash at upper left corner...F-8 does not work...software was factory installed so I do nto ahve any CD's...


I would first try recovering the computer by pressing f10 as the computer is booting. If the compaq didn't come installed with a recovery partition, or like you said, no recovery discs, then you will either need to find someone who has a windows XP disc, buy an XP disc, or take the comp to the computer shop so they can run the windows xp recovery console.
If you want a really accurate, thorough explanation of why this problem happened in this first place, read this microsoft article here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314503/en-us
Good luck. Hopefully you can find someone that already has an xp disc.

you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

Wont boot,keeps asking 2 F1 then'start normally' screen then afta a while back to F1,


your system has dropped into a "boot loop".. The best way to fix this is to place your Windows install disk into the machine, then reboot. Go into the BIOS screen and change the boot sequence so the PC boots from the cd or dvd drive then save and exit (F10). once the system gets to the "press a key to boot from cd" option, press a key and let the installation system start up. This will detect an exisiting installation BUT, when it asks if you wish to repair using recovery manager, Press NO.. Then it will go to the setup screen and ask if you would like to fix the existing installation, press YES and setup will replace the damaged system files and re-write the MBR. Let setup finish and remove the disk at the end of the installation then reboot. All should now be well and your files should still be available too..

There might be a bios setting that you have too set for the recovery mode. If you can get into the BIOS then check to see if there's a setting for recovery. You can also try at boot up (before the Windows error) to hit Ctrl-F10.

Cant restore to factory settings


Looks like your Recovery Partition or the Software for the recovery option isn't accessable. Here is a link to the website for that desktop. Can you access the Bios and View the Hard Disk Settings to Verify that the Hard Drive is installed and recognizable.

You may need the Recovery CD's to invoke this option. Did you burn the images when you first got your computer?

Can't reboot Compaq/Presario desktop, (power supply is working)


If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.
