A damaged hard drive will NOT affect your bios, however a bad motherboard, ROM, chip, memory, etc. can cause your system to freeze when entering BIOS. You probably need to send it out for repair.

Check for an F Lock key on your keyboard.

By pressing it, it should activate your F Keys and F8 should work as advertised.

SOURCE: how did u install win xp on compaq presario CQ60 104tu?

to install xp in any machine that has an intel chipset be it hp, dell or whatever is relatively easy ....the solution is found here

go to http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ and in the search textbox type "spacer.gif32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility" then download it.

extract the content of that zipped file that is called f6flpy3287.zip .

then click on this site http://www.tacktech.com/download.cfm?file=microsoft/sata/sata-drivers.zip....here you get all the drivers for sata intel chipsets ....The content of this zipped file is similar to that of f6flpy3287.zip but its advisable you use f6flpy3287.zip contents to slipstream.

secondly download a software called winlite from http://www.nliteos.com/download.html ...its a freeware
then follow this site

I have an old laptop that partition and hd have been reformatted. I've tried using boot disk but keep getting the message that says, ''save to disk partition not found. So, can't get win98se to load as...


Haven't used win98 for a while so bear with me and this uses DOS COMMANDS too.
If useing restore cd/floppy you have to use a utility from compaq that creates two partitions on hard-drive.
They may have a restore floppy if you need it too.
One for "recovery files" and one for "OS Boot"
AHH, the memories, I still have my 95/98/ME Laptops up and running for older stuff. HP n CQ too.
Restore CD should do it all though.
If no restore CD - have Win98 CD?
if Harddrive partitioned and formated - Just do 1
1. boot from Win98 CD.
Partition n Format
2. Choose boot to DOS (puts u in virtual drive A)
AT PROMPT
3. Type drive letter of CD ( C: D: or E: )
4. Type CD Win98
5. Type Fdisk ( to partion drive)
reboot n do 1 + 2
6. Type format C: ( I do this to ckeck drive for errors)
OR
JUST Boot from CD and follow install instructions.
1 to 6 for if you have problem with Win98 CD setting up Harddrive.

Computer not booting normal or in safe mode says it needs a system recovery disk but got no cd drive


There is a factory restore installed on the harddrive. Using it however, will delete any saved personal documents.
(Pictures, Videos, Music, documents you have created, or saved)
Also deletes any programs, or applications you may have downloaded, or installed yourself.

To proceed with this form of Restoration I suggest you download the Maintenance and Service Guide.
(Really a Manual, not just a guide)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3636382&

On this page scroll down to the first file listing -

HP G6000 Notebook and Compaq Presario F700 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

(3.77MB in size)

Left click on it.
This is a PDF file download. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

It may take up to 20 seconds before you see the first page.
After you see the first page, you will notice the download progression bar.
Let the file download all the way before looking through it.
Looking through the file before it has downloaded all the way, may break the download connection.

[NOTE*
You can save this file to your computer, so you will not have to download it again. Also so you can burn it off to CD disk. Free up harddrive space, and have the disk handy for viewing anytime you wish.
I will detail how to save it at the end]

Under the Bookmarks heading left-click right on the -
Backup and Recovery, heading.

You are now on Page 103
Use the blue Down Arrow next to the page number box, at the top. Click on the down arrow until you are on Page 106.

Recovering from the partition on the harddrive.

Computer off, press the Power On button. AS SOON as you see -

Press <F11> for recovery,

on the LCD screen, press the F11 key on your keyboard.
Now select, (Click on) - Recovery Manager

When Recovery Manager opens select, (Click on) - Advanced Options

Click on System Recovery, then click on Next.

Follow the instructions.
See something you do not understand in the instructions?
Let me know.

Reboot or repair harddisk


Please be a little more specific as to when you are recieving the error and word for word exactly what it says. Its hard to determine if it is a hardware or a software failure at this point. You could try booting off a windows xp disc, going into the recovery console and using the command chkdsk /p /r, it will try and locate bad sectors on the harddrive and fix them. I should let you know that harddrives are usually the first hardware component to fail in computers and have a life expectancy of 3-5 years.

Unless your machine took a bad fall down some stairs, I am guessing you have a problem with hardware. Unplug the machine and remove the battery. Unplug any external devices like cards, USB devices and printers, etc., and then reboot. Is the hard drive running? Try F10 into setup, and then select LOAD SAFE DEFAULTS AND REBOOT, or something similar. If this does not get it going, check to see if the harddrive or memory has become unseated in their bays somehow. Turn the laptop over, remove the screws covering the little doors, lovingly and gently unscrew the harddrive retaining screw and remove it, and then put it back in and secure the screws. Check to make sure the memory modules are seated correctly, and reseat them if necessary. Then try rebooting. If you get the same problem, go into the BIOS again and check to make sure you are booting to the HDD as first, and then start turning off devices in the BIOS and rebooting in cycles until it boots. Also, try booting to CD (for example, OS installation disk) and if that works, you likely have a boot problem or hardware problem on the hard drive.

Good luck....
