comes on and goes directly to the safe mode page. I have tried selecting safe mode or logging on the previous setting and it goes to a blue screen with information but the screen is on for such a short time i
dont even have time to read it. all i see at the bottom of the page is alot
of o''s and stop. then after that screen goes away it goes through the whole cycle again with the same black screen with the options to start the computer on safe mode or networking or dos. what could be the problem? please help

One way you could try to read the message that is being displayed is to record a video during startup and play that in slow motion. That way, you might be able better understand the problem.

So my laptop froze yesterday and I turned it off to restart it. When I restarted it it everything was normal but after the starting windows goes away it usually goes to the login page well now all it does...


Try starting it in safe mode.
When the computer is starting just after the beep or when the bios info goes away press f8 repeatedly and you will get an option to open in regular or safe mode.
Alternativly you can also hold down teh ctrl key and it should do the same.
Did you install or update and drivers recently?

Laptop won't start up


It sounds like your laptop is using it's external VGA adapter for its main display. Try holding down the Function (FN) on your keyboard located on the bottom left hand side and pressing F4 at the same time.

I was hopeing somebody could help, this morning i went onto the laptop and then restarted the laptop, when i restarted the laptop the laptop kept on rebooting its self. i first comes up with compaq logo,...


Try to start in safe mode, then change the start up options so that the computer does not reboot on error. Then you can see what the BSOD (stop error) message is and troubleshoot from there.

COMPUTER GOES TO COPYRIGHT PAGE NOT WINDOWS


Push F8 before the splash screen loads - start pushing it the moment you start your computer. You should get a screen that allows you to start in safe mode. Once you've started in safe mode, try rebooting and see if you computer comes up normally.

My Compaq Presario V2000 will not start.


Ok, this makes sense. If this was a legit dvd, then it most likely had extra content on it (like wallpaper, sounds, etc) that installed something that crashed a driver.  If it wasn't legit, then the "player" that was used to play the movie installed something that crashed a driver.
If you can. I would reinstall some drivers to start.  Have you tried the "Last known good configuration" option?
Then if reinstalling drivers doesn't work, I would just restore the Windows OS.  But remember to BACKUP YOUR FILES.....once you restore it will be erased.
That compaq is a good machine unless you really want another PC this is fixable.

Screen goes off


Try booting into safe mode.. press F8 before the windows screen, and select Safe Mode as the boot option. If that is a temporary fix, then reinstall the driver, and make sure your Hertz settings are correct!
