Question about Compaq Presario CQ56110US Laptop

1 Answer

My boot up is really slow on my Compaq Presario CQ56. How can I get it back to original speed?

Has been running fine then two weeks ago wouldn't start at all just got stuck on black page. I turned it on and off several times and then managed to get it back but since then it has been incredibly slow. Once booted it's not too bad but it's the boot up time that is bad

You have an issue with your hard disk drive. Back up your data at once. Create the recovery disks from recovery manager in program files list. Replace the drive and run the factory restore. Install an antivirus and transfer your data back.

SOURCE: boot manager is missing and wont load windows 7

If your using a DVD to install the operating system, it could be either dirty (just needs a wipe) or the files on the disk are corrupt.

If you are getting this error while Windows 7 is starting up perhaps you can try doing a "repair". Boot off the DVD do a repair (not from the recovery console) and see if this helps.

Hope this helps.

This makes me believe that your laptop has a memory problem. I suggest you to power off your laptop and eject the battery. Unscrew the screws that hold the memory cover. Discharge yourself touching a water pipe (no joke, this is to remove any static electricity from yourself that could destroy the memory). Eject the memory module(s) and reinsert them back. Take a look at this photo, it might help you:
If the problem disapear after that well done. If not you have to replace the memory module(s) with new ones.
More details about memory modules for your laptop you can finh at this official link.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

SOURCE: I have a compaq Presario

Have you tried removing the battery, and disconnecting the power adapter. If you have not tried that please try that.
1. Once you have removed both. 2. Power up computer with just power adapter connected and no battery. 3. If the computer powers up shut computer back down 4. Put battery back in and leave power connected
If that does not fix the issue. The back light has possibly gone out on the computer. Depending on how old the computer is. 1. Either contact the manufacturer of the computer 2. Take computer to a repair shop 3. Consider purchasing a new computer

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 & the scroll

The scroll pad on the touch pad needs a particular driver Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. This will actually run at the startup after installed which will activate the functionality of scroll on the touch pad. You can also actually turn this function on and off so this is a friendly user.
If you do not have that driver that comes with your laptop you can go here:
or here

Good day.

What you need to do is put in the first restore disc. Turn off the PC. Then when you start you will see the compaq logo there should be an option to boot to boot order. Usually F12. If not there should be an option to go to BIOS. F2. You need to boot to disc first. Once you boot to disc follow the instructions to reinstall Windows.

Assuming you don't have a virus, the laptop's internal (CMOS) battery may be bad. Apart from keeping the time current, it holds onto your machines bootlog. If the machine starts up in Safe Mode, it would likely be the CMOS battery that's bad.

My recovery drive is almost full on my compaq presario laptop model cq56-115dx what should i do. I'm running windows 7

i used to reset the restore file cache by turning off the feature and then turning it back on. you can also try first deleting the old restore points. it will automatically delete them as it needs room anyway.

now i keep it turned off, it never worked anyway
i do real backups and clone boots drives instead
i also periodically save the registry
