Compatible AC Adapter for Compaq Presario F755US Laptop

I think it has a bad power adapter yielding insufficient voltage.

This system is running Vista which makes it quite dated. However, you can try the replacement supply and see what happens. Or, they coud view Utube on an inexpensive android tablet.

However, you can try the following (I am guessing you do not have the Vista disc):

To boot into the Advanced Boot Options menu, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer
  2. Press F8 as soon as your computer starts to boot, but before the Windows Vista logo appears
  3. The Advanced Boot Options menu should now appear
  4. Select the Repair your computer option
  5. Press Enter
  6. System Recovery Options should now be available (You may need to select your time, keyboard and language preferences before the list of tools is displayed)
Some of these options will if operating at all restore your computer to factory defaults erasing data and programs installed after it first came out of the box.

(A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.

Are you able to go safe mode? Reboot and when the logo appears, press f8 and select safe mode. If you are able to, you might want to run a antispyware or antivirus software.

Let me know if you are able to access that.
