  • seanrocks360 Jan 26, 2009

    forgot the administrator password for my compaq c700 as well looking for an eseier solution the one solution i keep finding is a paintaking six major component removal of up to 79 screws to get to what would be the same as the cmos battery in a desktop remove it wait 5 minutes hook it up turn it on and this should reset the password then you have to put it back together and hope you can remember the location of all those screws which are also in nine different sizes. I found the manual with step by step instruction at http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/manual/c01... - Windows Internet Explorer ....but if any body knows a different faster esay soultion that does not involve buying software I would appreciate it very much!! my email is seanrocks360@yahoo.com

To reset the bios password you will need to remove the cmose battery from your motherboard for about 5-10 seconds. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

I can't downgrade Vista to Xp


You can install windows XP.
 
First go to BIOS and change sata mode to IDE mode
or option to disable SATA Native mode

then choose mode to IDE or disable SATA Native mode
then install windows XP

If there is no option about change sata mode in BIOS.
You should insert ahci driver to Windows XP CD using nLite

read this 
http://komku.blogspot.com/2007/11/integrate-driver-into-windows.html
you can use this driver 
http://cahya.prastyanto.googlepages.com/driver-sata-ahci-4920.zip

Or you can install windows by inserting driver when setup prompted


To install Windows XP with native SATA driver, perform the following steps:

Boot the notebook PC.

Insert the Windows XP installation CD into the optical CD/DVD drive.

Press the F6 key when prompted

Press the S key to specify the additional device.

Insert the SATA driver disk into drive A. (using floppy disk drive)


Follow the on-screen prompts.


Or if both way is cannot be done

i have the third way

use an unattended XP installation disk
you can download it from here:
http://fenopy.com/torrent/Windows_xp_sp3_5512_cdr_october_2008_with__sata_raid_/MTU2MTEzMA==/index.html
after you download
burn the CD image to the CD/DVD
then install XP using that CD/DVD

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

Compaq presario v3000 laptop..doesnt recongize the hard drive


I beleive that you are trying to install retail versions of XP which will not be able to detect the Hard Drive in the Notebook as it is a SATA drive and Windows XP will not be having the drivers for SATA Hard Drives by default.
In this situation, I recommend you to check and disable the SATA Native support  option available in the BIOS.
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab using the Arrow keys and select the option as Disabled next to SATA Native Support.
Press the F10 key again to save the settings done and exit BIOS.
Now, you should be able to use the Windows XP disk and install Windows XP Operating System in your Notebook without any issues.
By disabling the SATA Native Feature, the Hard Drive of the Notebook will be detected as a IDE Drive because of which we will be able to install XP without any issues.

Donot Re-Enable this feature in the BIOS again as the Operating System may not boot. Let the option next to SATA Native Support be Disabled.
Hope this helps...

Installing XP to C700


First disable sata native support because after installing xp and restarting will crash it.so disable sata native support now when installation of window xp is complete ,reboot the computer and enter bios and select the first boot device to hard disk and also disable cd rom boot to disable .by doing this when computer starts it will start with hard disk and not with cd rom .
