It doesn't start or is slow?

If it's just slow go to start and click control panel click "performance and maintenance".  Free up space on hard disk.  Let it run through and follow prompts.  When that completes you need to do a system defrag.  so you are going to go back to Performance and Maintence but now click on Rearrange items on the hard disk.  Follow prompts for C: drive.

Compaq Presario CQ50-110US 15-inch Laptop dropped will boot but no video

Your laptop may have a combination of problems. Since the laptop was dropped, it is possible that your may a motherboard that no longer outputs video through the video controller, or the screen may have been damaged internally. Try hooking up an external monitor through the vga output of your laptop, usually located on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, then most likely it is your screen that's bad, if the external monitor doesn't works, then most likely it is your motherboard that's bad.

Let me know if this helps.

I want to turn on bluetooth device on my compaq presario cq60-410us


Upon checking the specifications of this Compaq Presario CQ60-220, it appears that it doesn't have a Bluetooth chip built-in to it. That means that the computer is capable of Bluetooth technology but you need to have a USB Bluetooth Adapter (see image below).


To make sure if you have Bluetooth installed, open the Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and look for Bluetooth. Some computer brands have a Bluetooth sticker at the bottom casing to indicate that the computer has a Blueooth device installed.

Compaq presario m2000 notebook continuously beeps while starting up. The computer is very slow once fully logged in. Do you have any suggestions to fix these problems?

The beeping usually points to a RAM stick failure. If your laptop has two sticks of RAM then one of them has failed, which further explains the slow performance of the laptop once it's fully loaded.
To troubleshoot this issue, you'll need to remove one RAM stick at a time, and see if the laptop boots at all. When you have only one stick of RAM and the laptop does not load after the beep signal, then that installed RAM stick is bad. You may want to try and clean up the contacts with a cotton cloth and some alcohol just to make sure it's not an oxidized contact issue.

If this was informative and helpful please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

Compaq Armada V300

Sounds as if the board is starting to fail. Try what I've listed bellow. If that doesn't work then try a bios flash. If it's still giving you the same problem after trying all of these, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the motherboard.

Try removing the jumper from the harddrive, then restart
Take the jumper off restart, shut down, then put it back on again
Remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once . After booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you to press F1. Reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)

Please let me know.
