I am sorry to say but there is no suggestion we can give on this topic. The problem with your computer is that the operating system you were using has crashed. You need to install a fresh copy of operating system on your PC.

Here is what you do when you got your pc did it come with any HP or Compaq recovery disks here is what you do if it did here is the link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07145&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=501310 if you do not have the disks here is what you do when the Compaq or HP logo screen pops up you press F10 and it should pop up HP or Compaq PC recovery and it will restore the computer like it was when you received it. Just to let you know that when you do that you will have to update and reinstall anything that you put on your computer when you receved it. i hope that this helps you out.

How do I set a Compaq Presario SR1403WM back to Factory settings


Step 1:
While many problems with Compaq Presario computers can be solved by less drastic means, there are times when the best course of action is to set the computer back to its original factory default state. Issues with persistent viruses or spyware often require this drastic step, as do problems with a corrupt operating system. Learning how to restore your computer to its original state is an important troubleshooting tool.

Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup. Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed. Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard. Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process. Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with. Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.

I need to know how to restore my Compaq Presario 2700 to factory setting because it has crashed.


If you have the original recovery disc for the laptop, then I would re-install your operational system to bring it back to factory setting. If you do not have the disc go to www.compaq.com for customer support to see if they have the disc available.

Trying to restore back to factory what can i


When you purchased the computer, you should have received a set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. Use them.

If you have lost them, telephone HP/COMPAQ, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. The cost could be $20 for the set, and $20 for courier-shipping. When the disks arrive, use them.

P.S. Backup all your music/files/bookmarks/contacts before doing the "factory" reset.

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing


See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

Let me know if I can help you further.

How do I go about resetting computer to factory settings without a restore disk


No can do I'm sorry to say. Some laptops have restore partitions you can access but not Compaqs. You are encouraged to burn a restore DVD when you boot first time. You can run any licensed disc to reinstall and download the drivers from the Compaq site
