I have a Compaq presario 1200 it works fine sometimes, sometimes it will not come on at all. If i let it sit an extended amout of time after it will not come on at all then it will magically come back to life.

    The compaq Presario 1200 laptop often takes a number of pushes of the on button to make it work. It is random and sometimes comes on after 6 tp 10 pushes but never comes on with one push and release of the on button. No idea why.

Compaq presario 700us will play cds wont play dvds


Try to put your laptop always on flat surface. Uneven base gives angle to the already tiny clearance space for the disc. Could be that the DVD disc run coz its finer, it will spin much slower than CD disc.

Hope i give you some good observation.

This means that the data inside the D drive is gone. If you had deleted the D drive data or had gotten rid of this partition then your outta luck in trying to restore your system back to factory settings (getting windows reloaded).

All is not lost if you are willing to pay HP/Compaq for their restore CD's this will get your laptop and running again. I paid a copy of these CD's 3yrs ago and cost me $45CDN to get them.

somthing thats worth trying is going into my computer, right click on the cdrom drive and click eject if it works that way then its software thats stopping it from ejecting, if it still dont work take a paperclip and push it in the small hole in the cdrom drive and it will pop out its only a temporary thing but it works to get the cd out.. All the Best John
