This looks like a Windows failure due to a new installed software or system tweak, or anything to do with Windows actually.You can try pressing "F8" button while your computer is booting (a couple of times since the windows dos select menu appears), then you can try to open the windows in the "Safe Mode", and when you get there, you can try to restore your system back in time a couple of days, to a well-working state. (By using system restore option)

    Is you booting sequence arranged as first CD? If not, you can enter the BIOS setup menu, and change the boot order there as the CD first, HDD second. Then there should be somekind of message telling "press space to boot from CD", then maybe you can recover xp within bootable cd menu, or you can install a fresh xp formatting the old one, which I recommend. For backing up your data, you can either connect your hard drive to another computer (which is the complicated way), or you can download a Live Linux distribution or a Live XP CD which will boot up first and there you can transfer your important files to another storage area. Hope this helps.

Compaq Presario SR1000 won't boot up completely :(


Hi Thanks for your question
I would suggest to enter "safe mode" and then do system restore again. To do this you need to follow these steps.
1.Turn your PC on and press F8 on start up. This should take you to the screen asking what you want to do. 2. Choose safe mode from the list and press enter. 3. Once safe mode loads you should be asked if you want to restore your system to previous state. Just press no to run system restore and follow steps (you already know how to do this)
Shutting your computer down without closing operation system properly may cause start up issues like this one.
I hope this helps you. Good luck

Compaq Presario SR1000 Won't Turn On


The power on buttom might be it. Before doing anything else, check and fix the power ON button. I have a tower that gave me the same trouble. The Power On button somehow was out of place. Once I aligned it, the tower worked again. Good guess..! Good luck

Compaq Presario SR1000 desktop boot up problem


nothing to do with the ram ... this motherboard sometimes locks, ( dont ask me why) but if you take out the power cord for 5-10 minutes and then press and hold the front power button on the machine (about 10 seconds) it will reset the board. Plug in the power cord and the basic items, sound, video etc ( some usb devices tend to stop it booting to) boot into windows. Then add the rest of your usb devices ..
