As much as I would like to tell people do not buy seagate I can't, Most Seagates are having problems, depending on the serial number you might need the firm ware up date. Secret WD is the way to go, better warranty, last longer to.

I have forgotten my password for my compaq presario x1000, how can I unlock my computer?


for xp

Restart your computer during the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
Advanced Boot Options screen appears.


Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.


Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.



Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.



Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.

Notebook cant see my 30 giga hdd


i assume the armada is a compaq product? if so, you may want to read your installation documentation- hdd may have jumpers, or spacers that need to be re-located! if it's not a compaq 'compliant' product, then good luck! compaq hardware is very 'proprietary'! meaning, if our laptop don't like it, then it don't work!! i've tried compaq ram on a toshiba- slotted right in! no prob. 'til i booted! didn't like it! seems very unfriendly to me! if your hdd 'kit' is supposedly compatible with your laptop, then, as i stated- check dox for jumper, or spacer settings. remove hdd and check for bent pins!! if there are any, very, very carefully- using fine tweezers- straighten them until they socket properly!
break one of and you're s.o.l.!
you may have a friend with the proper tools, and a steady hand who could assist, it there's a bent pin!
the hdd can appear to seat properly, but still have a bent pin. check any jumper/spacer settings first! also compatibility with your armada!
good luck!

I have a compac presario model sr5223wm. Upon


Hi Edward,

Grub is the Boot sector loader program used by many versions of linux. If you have a DVD/CD Flash drive or external drive attached to you computer, remove it and reboot. If that works, the computer was trying to boot from the removable disk. If it doesn't it would seem someone or something may have installed, or, attempted to install linux on your computer.

If this is the case you either need to complete the install so you can setup Grub properly to allow you to select windows or linux at startup or you will need to Zero Wipe the hard drive and re-install windows from scratch.

Feel free to comment back with your progress and I'll be happy to help you out further.

Trouble starting compaq presario F551AU


Hey I apoligise for the late reply,

Ok, first off when you turn off the computer without shutting down, windws does not get enough time to wirte necessary data to the disc, this does not always cause aproblem because sometimes there are unpredictable events such as power failure..

You might need to format your hardrive to fix this problem
To do this boot with the windows cd, it will say press any key to boot from disc. (YOU MIGHT NEED TO SET YOUR BOOT DEVICE IN THE BIOS(SETUP))

anyway fisrt off try a fresh install, leaving your current file system intact. Id that works then you will still have all your data on your disc, If not then you need to do a complete format.. Good Luck
