First make sure that there is no non-boot disc in either the 3.5" or the CD drive. If those are not the problem, your hard drive has either failed or lost the Master Boot Record information. You will need a Windows Install or Upgrade CD for your computer's OS. (You may also need a 3.5" boot disc for the OS.) What OS are you using on that computer. Alternatively, some third party repair software or Partition Management software can restore the boot information if the hard drive is still viable.

Try to boot to the CD and choose repair. Go the the Command Prompt (Recovery Console). Then for XP, try the fixmbr command. You can check if there is any viable data on the hard drive by trying to change drives and then typing dir to get the directory list. Try C: (enter) dir (enter). Look for a Windows folder. (Note: some computers have a recovery partition. Don't mistake that for your Windows drive.)

If your hard drive has failed, you'll need a new drive. Then use the license on the computer and an install disc for that original license. Please note: the recovery disc if you have one often doesn't work with new hardware. You will lose any third party software that was installed by Compaq. You'll need to reinstall your own software.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your computer for additional support. If you do not have an OS disc, search for a member of a Windows User Group in your area. They often have extra copies.

Need to reset my Windows Vista password on an old laptop. I forgot it.

Which operating system ????....

If you forget your Windows Vista password, you can reset it quickly and safely using a password reset disk or an administrator account.
Windows Vista allows you to create several accounts for different users; however, the administrator account controls system settings and manages the entire computer.
If you forget your password, resetting it allows you to create a new one to access system files. The reset procedure involves using simple password reset wizards.

Restart your computer and wait for the logon screen to appear.
Enter an incorrect password in the Password field and wait for the "User name or password is incorrect" message to appear.
Click "OK."

Click the "Reset Password" button to start the Password Reset wizard.
Insert your password reset disc in the optical drive, or if it is an external drive, connect it to an open USB port on your computer.

Click "Next" on the password reset wizard and select the password reset disk from the list of options. Type a new password and a hint for the password.
Click "Next."
Click "Finish" to log in with the new password.
Using an Administrator Account

Log in to your administrator account if you are the computer's administrator.

Click the "Start" button, type "lusrmgr.msc" (without quotes) in the search field and press "Enter." If prompted, enter your administrator password.

Double-click "Local Users and Groups" and then click "Users."
Right-click the account belonging to the user who forgot his password and click "Set Password."
Enter a new password yourself or have the account owner enter a new password he wants to use.
Re-enter the password for confirmation.

Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking

select safe mode with command prompt
Click start run type cmd press Enter
black screen should open DOS mode
this will vary depending on your operating system
type in net user username
For eg. If you want to change administrator password , type net user Administrator
It will prompt you to enter the new password.
Enter the new password and the password is changed
if this fails you will need to

you could download all of these or just one save them to a usb drive for later use if one fails to remove the password

You CAN download a crack program that will go into Windows NT and snag / reset your password. But these are sometimes viruses and require some computer knowledge. Your local Geek Squad will reset your password for $10.

Bluetooth device not working after windows got reinstalled

What is the old OS and the new OS of your computer? If you upgraded your system, there's a possibility that your Blyetooth device was not supported by your new OS.

Or, you might need to download a new driver that would support your new OS.

Byt if you are running the same OS, try to download the driver from the Internet and reinstall the Bluetooth driver.

Have a great day!

Web cam doesnt work on my laptop

Hi soleillee,

Yeah this is most likely a driver problem. You see the drivers from windows xp wont work with windows vista. It is very likely that your camera was not made with vista drivers if it is more than a year old. Unfortunately without a windows vista drivers your camera wont work. so you have two options:

1- find out if the camera has a vista drivers and install them
2- buy a new camera ( i know its frustrating)

And if i may recommend the logitech cameras, they are sturdy and the mid range ones have great picture, and best of all there tech support is easy to find when you want a new driver.
