you've got a corrupted file most likely,

but thus your computer managed to boot up before this thing show up on screen?

If yes try to go to safe mode by pressing F8 before it boots up then go to recovery or restore setting to earlier time before this thing happen.

If it does able to boot up after pressing the power then you'll have no choice but to reformat your hard drive, you can do this if you have other computer where you can attach your hardrive, but if none, much be better to bring it to service center

before windows starts press f8 a couple of times to get into safemode.
if windows doesn't load then you probably have to reinstall windows.
If windows does start, try going into msconfig. Go to Start - Run then type in msconfig. click on the startup tab & try to remove some of the start up programs to see if thats the problem.

Will not show anything after log in


Just before the Windows logo screen appears press F8 and chose "Last Known Good Configuration", see what happens it might fix any driver related issue. If not you can try "safe mode" from the F8 menu and see does that boot.

Only shows compaq on screen


I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

when the pc is powering up, keep pressing F8 to get into safe mode, and when in the menu select last known good configuration and press enter for a reboot. This should get you running, if not restart again pressing F8, but this time select start windows in safe mode and whilst in safe mode select the administrator account and try doing a system restore to a date before you tried loading the programe, and let the pc re boot, and hopefully you are now ok.
