The error may have many roots, some most common ones, I am explaining below:-
*BIOS Problem:- Check which key opens you BIOS and load the default settings there.
*Memory Damage:-Try getting your memory checked, Sometimes RAM damage also gives this painful result!
*CMOS Battery Failure:- Get you CMOS battery checked, Sometimes booting problms occur due to its failure.
*OS Probles:-Some files of your operating system may be corrupt or missing. If you are using Windows XP, then you may insert your XP disk and run the Checkdisk utility (Command:CHKDSK) from the repair section after booting through the disk and also you may try "fixboot" command if the above doesn't work in the same repair section.
I hope the above soutions may be helpful to you and if they are rate me!! and if they are not Send your laptop back to Compaq!

Hi I am using hp Compaq presario CQ50-210US is getting heat with 5 mints of start

Hi,your Hp Compaq Presario CQ50-210US heating up after five minutes of starting up is normal for AMD(Processor) systems,they are actually rated as very fast processors and they tend to heat up very fast upon start-up,usually it is advised that you use such System in very cool environment to avoid component damage.also avoid placing the system on the bed or carpet or covering the vent under the system if you must raise it up,do so by placing it on an elevated platform so as to allow proper circulation of air.

Try to boot into the BIOS - if you can't then it's a hardware fault and the laptop must be sent to a repair shop; if you can then Windows was severely corrupted - just reinstall it.

My Compaq Presario CQ50 laptop won't boot up. The compaq screen comes up then it just goes to a black screen with a cursor at the top. I tried to run Norton Internet Security 2010 but all it does is ask...

Try another hard drive in the system, sounds like the drive is going bad, then after replacing the hard drive, then go ahead and recover the system. Bad sectors on a hard drive can make it where it won't restore.

If you can get your hands on a windows boot disk, then you can try to format the hard drive, wiping it out and installing it can fix that problem as well.
