    Hello,



    After powering on the machine does it get to the POST test screen? Do you hear any beeps from the machine at all? Does it fail to get to the XP splash screen, or does it blue screen, or is there just a black screen from start with no BIOS info etc displayed? Are ANY error messages displayed at any point of the boot, and as the other person has asked already, have you opened the pc up and messed with any of the hardware yourself?



    Thanks

Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

Try clearing CMOS. Take the battery out and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect or change out drives and memory one by one until you find the reason your pc won't POST. Once you can at least get to BIOS you've found your problem.

you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

You probably need to set your boot order in BIOS (setup) to load from CD first. Reboot the computer and press either F1 or F10 repeatedly until the setup (BIOS) menu comes up, then, using your arrow keys, navigate to the boot menu and set the boot order to CD first.

If you can't get into the BIOS through F1 or F10, try other "F' keys until you get in. Also the "Del" key.

Recovering to factory settings is kind of a drastic measure just because of a system hang. You would be better served to find out why the system hung. IN FACT, understand that depending upon what is wrong, the system may hang during the recovery, leaving you with fewer options for repair.

Post back if you want to try to troubleshoot this further. It will take a while, but we should eventually be able to determine what is causing the hang.

It could be just an application that needs to be removed or re-installed. Have you installed any new software recently? What software were you using when the hang occured? What operating system are you using?

It could just be a virus or a bad memory module. Are you able to boot into SAFE MODE" (press the F8 at boot)?

If you can boot into Windows, go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Event Viewer" > "System" and check for any error entries. Also look at the "Applications" log.

Compaq presario doesnt boot upon powering up


boot into the bios or if bios support diagnostics boot into that (typically F1 of F10 on power up) If that is not an option boot off the CD recovery disk and run diagnostics on the HD. Let me know we can take it from there.

Restoring factory setting


you should have received some discs when you bought the PC...if not, try looking in your programs list for the application to create the Recovery discs.
Some, not all Compaq's have a F10 recovery (at boot press F10)

be sure to save your personal data to another source (USB stick, CD...etc)
