The computer battery needs to be replaced. The computer is missing its BIOS settings, which are stored on the computer battery on the motherboard. It's about the size of a nickel, and pops out easily. Take it to your favorite computer store and get a new one - about $8.

Stuck in log in screen

The most likely cause is you've recently installed some hardware or software, and upon restarting, the computer didn't know how to handle it. Not to worry, there are several options that often solve this type of problem. Disconnect any hardware you recently installed, such as a sound card. It could be causing the issue. The hardware may be defective or your computer may not have the capability to use it. Start the computer and wait for the Desktop to show up. If the Desktop appears to be just seconds away from showing up but never does, hold down the Ctrl-Alt-Del key combination. In the menu that pops up, choose "Start Task Manager." Select any task you see in the "Application" tab and choose "End task." This may allow the computer to finish loading. Restart the computer if the problem persists. When starting, hold down the F8 key to get a list of startup options. Select the option for "Last Known Good Configuration." Let Windows boot up. If this doesn't work, restart and choose "Advanced Boot Menu" and then "Safe Mode." Let Windows load. If either solution works, go to the Control Panel and choose "Uninstall a program." Select the last thing you installed and choose "Uninstall." Attempt to repair Windows. This may be your last option if nothing else works. Insert the Windows DVD and restart the computer. When the computer restarts, press any key to boot from the DVD. At the first menu choose your language and country and click "Next." Choose the "Repair your computer" option. Use the recovery tools option and then "Startup Repair." If this doesn't work, repeat these steps and choose "System Restore" instead of "Startup Repair" and choose a date before you began experiencing the problem. Hope this helps

After automatic updates and a restart, diagonstic lights A & C were yellow and D & B green, nothing comes up on screen, this happen before after an update but i got it to start after several a

If all diagnostic lights are on, then that means that it has something with the software of your computer. The update has affected some of the programs inside your computer thus it's booting up fine.

I suggest that you access safe mode and do a system restore from there. If you don't know how to access safe mode, then follow these:

1. Turn off your computer.
2. turn it on and keep tapping F8 until you see the options. You should see safe mode.
3. Use the arrow keys to select safe mode, then press enter.
4. Your computer should boot up to safe mode.
5. Access the system restore. You can find it in accessories, system tools, system restore. or you can search.
6. restore your computer to the known good date where your computer was still working fine.
7. After completing the on screen procedures, let your computer restart by itself (it may take minutes or more). It will restart and it should boot to the normal windows.

Good Luck!

I hope this helps.

My PC won't start? every time i start it the fan just spins fast and loud and nothing happens, the screen doesn't show. this happened when i took the PC apart. it a Compaq presario sr1610nx

Initially test the monitor in another pc, if display available use the monitor in Compaq presario sr1610nx. Load to BIOS by restarting and tapping F1, if the display available, the computer is ok. restart and tap F8, if the advanced boot option screen comes up, the software is ok.
Restart the computer and tap F10 and proceed with a destructive recovery to reload the operating system on the computer
