Presario 1693 issue

I just installed a new dc jack and 12 gb hard drive and went to go boot up, it shows the compaq logo then the screen goes black with cursor flashing at top left corner. I  got everything back together like I unassembled. Any insight on how to get it going. I need to load operating system into so my daughter can get back started again on her school work. Please Help.

Go to (CMOS) Setup at boot and "detect" your new hard drive.  Then boot from your operating system CD and prepare (partition, format) your new hard drive and let your OS install.

Hello.

Sounds like the Windows Recovery Partition is corrupted or your hard drive may be faulty.

But, first try to boot your system in Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly as it boots) and choose Safe Mode or Last Known Good.

If it still doesn't boot properly, try the diagnostics to determine if a hardware problem - boot your system and press F 12 (or F2) repeatedly.

Hope this helps.

My toshiba laptop will now only turn on to a black screen and a white flashing cursor. I cannot put it in safemode. I cannot put it in boot menu. It goes straight to black screen with white cursor.


it sounds as though its not seeing the hard drive. Power up and press delete to get into the bios. The hard drive should be seen in the first or second screen. If its not there then you will need a new one and a new installation of windows.

BATTERY LIGHT ORANGE-LAPTOP TURNS ON AND VAIO LOGO COMES UP BUT THEN SCREEN GOES BLACK AND WHITE CURSOR FLASHES ON TOP LEFT OF SCREEN


It could possibly mean a faulty hard drive. But before we conclude, try to boot to safemode through advanced boot options. How to get there? tap on F8 as soon as your computer turns on. If you get the advanced boot option, then good. Try to choose the option that says Last known good configuration first. If it does not work, try it again but this time choose safemode. If all else fails then you might need to do a full re-installation of the operating system. If still trying to do a re-installation does not detect the hard drive, then you will need to have it replaced.

Watch the screen as it boots up looking for the press F1 or DEL to access Setup. Your Presario may not be able to see the new HD in which case you will have to run second party software to access the HD. Get into the Setup BIOS and check for your new HD under hard drive detection if the BIOS can not find it, you will have to run other software to access the drive. If your BIOS gives you the option to start up the hard drive after a delay such as 1 or 2 seconds try that, as the BIOS on the hard drive and the BIOS on the motherboard may be clashing. Hope this Fixya up

Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.

Compaq Presario R3000 Black Screen with flashing cursor


Lines are the BGA RAM Or VRAM Needing rework.. This will also cause boot issues on these models. Do you ever see the Compaq Logo? Weve repaired a ton of these and class settlement happened for the R3000's regarding the jacks but we could repair the other issue as well. (As well as install a new jack while its here).. HP's reimbursing for these outside repairs.
Good luck!
