If you hav ethe Toshiba reinstall disc, check to see if it has any kind of diagnostics loaded with it. Try starting the computer, and keep tapping the F2 key, this should load the setup BIOS screen. Go to the section in setup where you can change which boots first. Set it for the CDROM to boot first. Save the settings, and restart. Once the computer loads the disc first, look for hard drive diagnostic tools. run the diagnostics to check the hardware on the computer, it should tell you what is good, and what is not. If it is the hard drive that has failed, than that is an easy fix. The only hard part is having to shell out the cash for the new drive. Hard drives on laptops are easy to get to. They are under a door on the underside of the computer. There is probably a couple screws, and the hard drive compartment will open up. Just remove the old one, and plug in the new one. Hope this helps!

I can't remember the password for my laptop (Compaq Presario CQ60)


if you have another pc or can use a friends you can download "Hirens Boot CD" it's free and you just need to burn it to a disk and boot from it. Once it boots up it has a lot of tools including one you can remove the password. If you need help using it you can google it there is plenty of information.

My laptop turns on, you can put in the password but it won't load and the blue screen comes on and then it restarts itself. It's a Samsung 530. Please HELP. Thank you!!!


i have had one of these myself... this pc suffers from various problems, mostly motherboard. Your specific problem has happened to a couple of friends, both filled their drives up so much that it "blue screened" We all know blue screen is often terminal. Your machine is getting on now. clear your drive up from DOS and windows ( delete unneeded files at start up, not through windows if possible.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

I have a presario cq61 and have forgot my password can u help


Try starting the computer in safe mode. Turn on the computer and once the COMPAQ screen clears press F8 a few times - don't hold down the key however. Winodws stops loading at teh Startup Options screen (black, text only). From that menu use the cursor keys and ENTER to select "Safe Mode". Once Windows loads (it may look humungous!), login as the Administrator (which should now be visible). Use this account to reset your forgotten user password. Restart once complete - the computer will automatically start normally.

Laptop stops loading after password screen...


Go back into system restore and restore the system to a previous point. This is most commonly a virus that locks down your icons. If you can get it to restore to a prior point then make sure you run your antivirus scanner and look for viruses and get rid of them. Hope this helps. Thanks!!
