Question about Compaq Presario F572US Notebook PC

1 Answer

Problems starting up

Hi, We have a Compaq Presario F572US, when we shut the computer down or put on sleep or hibernate the system closes normally, but when we try to start the computer up the the blue standby button comes on but the screen is blank and you can here the computer trying to boot up, but then goes off and tries to come back on again. This can sometimes take a few attempts to come on or it may take several hours for it to work. Can anyone help me. Thanks Jo

Hi,
This fault is caused with hibernation settings.
Turn it off in control panel, power options.
Problem will be gone then.

All computers struggle to come out of Hibernation.

Regards
Richard

My dell laptop says while on hybernating


I don't understand your question. Please re-word in English so it is understandable!

If you mean "My Dell laptop stays on while hibernating" then I would make sure that you are actually hibernating and NOT hitting the "sleep" button.

If you hit sleep or close your laptop then any small movements could possibly wake it up (though you would need to hit the start button to turn it on from sleeping usually)

If you hibernate then your computer saves its current state and shuts off so that way it can resume its current state next time your start up.
Are you positive you are putting it into hibernate and giving it time to shut-down without moving it? (Closing it before it is ready will tamper with the process at times)

Compaq presario f572us_power cycle off then back on every 20 to 30 seconds_display never comes on.


If the display never comes on sometimes its the battery. When the battery gets so low it won't boot until charged.

If you can boot check the power settings to see when the laptop goes into hibernation or sleep mode.

HAVE A COMPAQ MODEL SR2177CL IF THE SCREEN HIBERNATES IT WILL NOT RESPOND HAVE TO POWER THE SYSTEM ON/OFF WILL WORK FINE TILL IT HIB. AGAIN PLEASE HELP


Attempt to turn off hibernation mode in the Windows Power Options.

Start > Control Panel > Power Options
Find the Hibernation option and change it to Never.

This way, the laptop will go to sleep, but not hibernate and store data to the hard disk.

When I close the laptop and reopen it, there is just a black screen and I can't get it to work. So I end up having to turn off the computer. Also when I go to the shut down from the start menu, the standby...


You probably have a sticking hibernate, or sleep button. Near the hinge, there is a tiny pin looking thing sticking up. When you shut the computer, this presses against a switch below the case and puts the computer into sleep or hibernate mode. If this sticks, it won't boot up right. Shut the computer down and use canned air to blow out at the pin opening to clear any debris.

I am unable to unhibernate


Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation off...you can always just have the computer sleep...it is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Compaq HP Presario F572US just turned off.


Remove the battery and plug laptop power into the wall (or power strip).
Turn ON laptop without battery.
It should start.
After Windows has settled, put battery back in and let it charge up.

Hope this helps!

Hibernating


What do you mean shutting down the hibernating mode? Stop it happening when the battery goes low, or shutting down into hibernate mode?

Dell crashes and restarts upon sleep_suspend_hibernate


I'm not a big fan of using hibernate or standby, I've seen it cause too many problems, such as the one you're having. I shut my machine down when I'm done, or let it run if I'm coming back within a reasonable amount of time. I've also seen hibernation or standby create operating system errors or glitches, and premature hard drive failure. If the machine is working properly other than hibernation/standby you should shut the hibernation off and just shut the machine down when not in use. If you're getting this error when using the power button to turn off the computer, then the operating system has glitched or is corrupt and needs to be reistalled. If you need anymore help with this let me know.

Sleep mode


Depends how it is set-up. If it is just in standby then simply moving the mouse or pushing a key should work. If it is in hibernate, then you have to push the power button for it to power back on.
