SOURCE: how do i reset a cmos/bios pasword on a compaq

The power on password is a little harder to break in laptops than desktops and this tip may or may not help. Each computer manufacturer is different in how they set thier systems up. Disassemble the laptop down to the chassis where the RTC battery can be seen in its socket. Make sure that all power is removed from this device and remove the RTC battery. Let the motherboard sit without the battery in it for up to one hour. replace the RTC battery and reassemble the laptop. Do not put the main system battery in just yet, power on only with the AC adapter. Power the laptop up and if it asks for a password, just hit enter, if it still asks you for a password, type in "clear". If it still wants a password, then the only other option is to "short" the two contacts in the battery socket for the RTC battery, using a small wire to jump the positive and negative points in the socket, make sure nothing else is touched or you will Nuke your motherboard. With the battery contacts "shorted" power the motherboard up with the AC adapter, wait approx 1-2 minutes allowing the motherboard to post. Shut the board down, and follow the previos procedures for reassembly and powerup.

SOURCE: mY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot

Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

My desktop compaq presario s4300nx starts up , i can accses set up with f1 but cant start recovery with F10 however the F10 button works in setup, no good to me, ...i have recovery disks the pc just...


you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable on compaq presario 2100


A PXE-61 error message is most likely a faulty hard disk.
Try reseating the hard drive first and if you still get this error message again then you need to replace the hard disk.
To boot up with the CD you maybe able to press the F12 function key when you power up the laptop, this will bring up the a menu option to select an alternate boot device. If this option is not available then go into the BIOS configuration and change the bootup order and make the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second device. You can can it back later.

In the bios, look and see if there is a place to make ide or ata active. If not, then you will have to slipstream the SATA drivers to a new installation disk.

Cant get compaq Presario SR2150NX to start


get in the bios settings and make sure to have the hard drive in the boot line, try different settings like SATA/IDE compatible mode if the drive is not seen by the motherboard, try different plugs.
if the bios settings don't stay , check the position of the clear cmos jumper and change the backup battery of the motherboard.
Try to boot from cd. maybe a virus took off the boot flag from the hdd.
