Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

A four or five? yr. old Compaq presario 1692 (hand me down) will not power on once turned off...it is also very hard to turn off once it's safe. The on/off button seems 'flimsy'? It seems dead? No lights come on at all. Do you think it's due a battery?

    I'm hoping it's just a bad switch. Thanks for you help! :)
    If that's not it...I'll be back. ;)

Hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you?
Friend base from my experience in such stuff the problems you have mentioned always center at the push button problem. The dome behind the button is damage cut or dislocated or sometimes break and also the small spring dis aligned if there is a spring. it depends the model of the laptop. but as what i had experienced it is just the button of ON/OFF. to solve such problem you may go to the laptop service center near you and ask them for assistance or let them do the job. that's all friend hope i helped you.good luck

How do i install windows vista off of my compaq resario 1692 laptop that has windows 98


How do you install Windows 7 on your Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, that currently has Windows 98 on it? (Win98SE?)

I would NOT.

Reasoning?

Primer:
Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System, to communicate with a device.

Windows 98, Windows XP, and Windows 7, are some examples of an O/S. (Operating System)

The optical drive (CD/DVD drive), audio, (Sound), graphics, and Ethernet, are some examples of a Device.

Let's go to HP Support, and look at the drivers available for the Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, (HP bought out Compaq),

HP Support > Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=95231&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

In the list click on the blue - Software and Driver Downloads.
(Don't believe we can use the Ampersand on here. That's why I used -
and )

Takes you to this page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=95231&

On this page you are asked to choose your Operating System.
In the rectangular box that has - Select - in it, go to the right of the box, and left-click on the blue down arrow.

In the drop down list you will see that Windows 7 is not listed.
This means there are no drivers for your laptop, and Windows 7.

There have been many people caitlynbrean, that have installed Windows 7 on their computer, only to find that it will not work.

Sorry it couldn't have been better news.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Opertaing system not found


Your hard drive may be faulty, this is why the Windows operating system not found.
Go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is detected, if not reseat the hard drive and boot up again.
If the Windows operating system not found then most likely the hard drive is faulty and to get the Notebook working again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Compaq Presario 1692 device drivers and your programs.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure
you select your model laptop and the Windowsdrivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download thedrivers: -

I think it is the same as HP. When you undo the cover just pull it right out by the small plastic. No screws holding the drive.

I have a Compaq Presario Notebook 2100 when I turn-on it appears the following."disk failed and "operating system not found" what i am suppost to do. please help... Thanks a lot


You can go into the Bios by pressing F2 on startup and see if the hdd is detected there or not, you can make the bios default by pressing F9 and then F10.
If this doesnot works you will need the ricovery disc and you will have to boot to windows recovery console and there Use the fixmbr command in the Windows XP Recovery Console to repair the MBR of the startup partition.This should hellp you to fix the problem.
