    DCF - The prob is, it won't let you do anything. It just keep rotating saying a problem occurred, and restarting itself in the black window. It won't even let you start in safe mode.

    BB - The prob is with that, is no back-up discs, and an earlier back-up disc we did have the machine won't read. Nothing happened to the computer. It was manhandled, dropped or anything, nothing new was added or subtracted from the hardware/software.

If you can't get into windows normally or into safe mode to try to restore the system back to a date when it worked properly then you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and start the system from scratch.

My Compaq sr1800nx desktop boots to a black screen with white text with the options of F1 setup or F2 continue instead of the normal boot up. If I select F2 it will continue and boot up normally.


Sounds like you have to open task manager. probably threw ctrl+del keys together. then once the task manager is open you have the option of typing explorer.exe

once the windows desktop apears go to start then run and type chkdsk c: /R this will recover bad files that are possibly missing from the boot volume. the issue happens when software tries to alter the master boot record where windows load's the operating files off of the main drive root partition. hope this helps you.
Good Luck

My PC won't start? every time i start it the fan just spins fast and loud and nothing happens, the screen doesn't show. this happened when i took the PC apart. it a Compaq presario sr1610nx


Initially test the monitor in another pc, if display available use the monitor in Compaq presario sr1610nx. Load to BIOS by restarting and tapping F1, if the display available, the computer is ok. restart and tap F8, if the advanced boot option screen comes up, the software is ok.
Restart the computer and tap F10 and proceed with a destructive recovery to reload the operating system on the computer

Windows xp will not load on my computer....


It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

what you are describing is the blue screen of death, meaning theres a hardware or software problem, try to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore, if that doesn't work use your XP cd, let it load the drivers and the ask it to fix the existing XP installation, anything that you have saved in my documents should be safe and the problem should be solved. If the blue screen reappears then you have a hardware problem

Compaq Presario 5102US downloading Windows 98


If U already have 98 on the pc, R U trying to have dual boot, recover, or reload 98 instead of 98ME?
The disk U R using is a recovery disk and U will still need the 98 cd to reload. The disk is for repairing or reloading the 98 system and I would suggest that U learn how to use the command structure first before attempting a system repair.
Please explain what the problem is and what U want the system to do. We R very happy to help U get to where U want to go.

Computer will not boot


Chances are if you load the windows CD into the CD player it wil boot to the CD. You can opt to repair the current version of windows without a format. You will not loose your data.
