Use a paper clip to open it..

there will be a small hole on the outer cover of your disc drive. Straighten a paper clip out and gently insert it through the hole until the drive opens.

My Compaq Presario F503AU laptop will not boot to Bios, screen remains blank. On power up I hear 2 faint beeps, sound of fan starting, Led's light up with exception of Capslock after 4o seconds it powers...


Hello,

First try to unplug the laptop, then you open it up with a screwdriver, after doing that, remove the hard disk and the RAM and reinstall it back in, then reassemble the laptop back together to see if it will work.

If it does not work, then try to check if the module is still intact, then you insert an operating systems disc into the DVD tray to see if it will run a new window, if it does, then it means the operating system wiped out and need to be reinstalled.

Inserting the disc will solve the problem as the system will begin to run the operating system.

Take care and good luck

Check your RAM. I had the same problem with my C500. I ended up having a bad stick of RAM. The only other cause I know of is the hard drive. Although this is rare if you had no problems with your operating system before.

Compaq presario 700


your operating system wasn't found because kill disk wipes your hard drive clean.
You have to re-install your operating system, all the drivers, and any programs that you might want in your computer.
Boot into the BIOS (tapping the delete key during initial boot-up should get you there, or follow any instructions on the bottom of your POST screen to get into "set-up") and make sure your DVD/CD drive is the first boot option, then put your operating system disc in the drive, and re-boot...the drive should read your CD, and boot from there.
