It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label
on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the
product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista
operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.
You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB
support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows
drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the
drivers: - www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html
It is likely that the hard drive is bad or a memory issue. I would start by removing the hard drive and see if it goes past the compaq screen. If it does then you know what is wrong. If not message me and will walk you through the next step
When booting up press f8, go into safe-mode. See if the screen still behaves the same way, If so... I don't think there is much that can be done except using an external monitor on the laptop.
But if it looks ok, I would set the display settings resolution to 1024x768 and freq. hz to 60
In safe-mode you may not be able to set to 1024 but have it set to something in safe-mode so when you reboot it the normal mode it will have reset some of the display settings and hopefully fixed that for you. If the problem persists, check on the freq hz setting and try to go as low as possible, probably 60hz.
This has happened to me since I bought the machine. You need to reinstall your DVD driver. Go to your systems window, selected devices, select drives. You should see the DVD drive (probably a Toshiba). Uninstall the drive. You will be prompted to restart the machine. When it restarts the DVD will operate normally. I use my DVD-R alot and I have to reinstall the driver every couple of weeks.
This is not a hard drive problem. The reason for the display of the box showing the message is that one or more of your critical system processes got stopped somehow. Your system files may have got corrupted and may be as a result of that your computer is behaving weird. I too had the same experience. Try reinstalling the Operating System. It sure did work for me.
