First attempt to start up in safe mode by pressing function key F8 repeatedly before windows logo shows and select safe mode from the list of choices. You may be successful in logging on as Administrator, and if so you can administrate the users and their passwords.

Otherwise, if you have the Windows 7 installation CD and the key code for it, put it into the drive and boot up to it and choose to do a repair reinstall of Windows.

Want 2 install windows XP on compaq CQ56


In theory it is possible to install Windows XP on this laptop. But please take into consideration your pros and cons to doing so. The features on 7 alone far exceed XP, not to mention that the Window 7 64-bit that is installed on this model, will take full advantage of the hardware, than xp will.. Also think about the install time you will have to put into putting XP on your laptop, you'll need to find drivers, installing all your optional software, ect. In my opinion, you're better off leaving seven on, for all the hassle you'll have to go through!

Downgrade windows 7 to windows xp on compaq presario cq56


> downgrade to XP

Bad idea. Your CQ56 laptop was "designed for Windows 7". not for XP or Vista.

The only device-drivers on COMPAQ's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=4326711

are for installing Linux, to replace Windows 7.

If you did install Windows XP, you'll probably have 800x600 video, no sound, no wireless, and no wired-network access. Not good.

So, do *NOT* try to "downgrade".
