SOURCE: Compaq Presario F700 reboots every 2 seconds.

I just wrote up a big explanation and posted it and now I don't see it anywhere (discouraging). So here's my short version. I had this reboot every 2 sec problem on my Presario F700 and finally gave it up for dead. I used the site http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-compaq-presario-f700-notebook/ and popped off the top cover (where the power button is) and took the HP Sticker off the power button and it's worked fine so far. I tried all the other things everyone suggested (the remove the hard drive, etc.) and those didn't work. So far...it's working good. I hope it works for you!

3. Check in Sysem setup/BIOS and see it the drive is getting detected. in case the drive is not getting detected over there it is a possibility that the data cable that connects the drive to the main board might be loose. if that is the case we need to go into more detailed troubleshooting. please let me know if above steps fix the issue else will provide further steps.

SOURCE: How to factory restore my compaq presario f700

It depends on which OS and software came with the computer and the state of the computer. (In all cases do not use the Microsoft System Restore. This will return a computer to the last known good state (revert to a prior version of the registry) but not to the factory installed state.)

To do a recovery without starting Windows:

Some Vista and Win7 machines came with HP Recovery Manager. Press F11 during bootup (BIOS prompt) then if the hard drive is accessible, the Recovery Manager will start. Follow the on-screen directions. (If you changed the OS from originally installed version or repartitioned the drive, this is not available.)

For all other OS and recovery software options, you will need an external (USB) optical drive. The preferred option is a R/W DVD drive to create the recovery media yourself. (HP will send you recovery discs for a fee if the machine is under warranty.)

If you can enter Windows, click Start

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

My compaq presario is not switching on.


Could be a number of things, related to the power supply. However if there are any lights on then it is likely to be a motherboard problem. Contact a local PC repair shop. I had a simiar problem and it was the on board video card. They should not charge to diagnose the problem. Mine cost £80 to fix at PCZone, Birchwood.

Compaq presario F700. Display screen is garbled and illegable most of the time. Occasionally it will come up perfectly normal and clear but majority of time its a bunch of multi colored lines flickering....


Since the problem you describe is intermittent I would first suspect a loose or shorted electrical connection. To check this you will need to take the computer apart. Step by step photos of this procedure are at http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-compaq-presario-f700-notebook/ .
Once you have access to the lcd cable you can check its connection and the condition of the cable itself. If the connection is secure and the cable looks good you probably have a bad lcd.

Cant turn On my Compact presario f700


Assuming you have checked the the power strip or outlet by testing it with another electrical appliance to see if it is in operation, you can test
the power supply to the unit with a tester or oscilloscope. If it still does not work then check the cable that plugs directly into the unit and replace it if necessary. You can also open the unit to check if the cable is attached properly to the motherboard.

Sounds like the power converter. The power input and the battery are single voltage. The computer requires multiple voltages which are generated by a power converter. If you have installed this motherboard, ensure the connections to the power converter are correct.

Compaq F700 Battery live very less


Giri,
Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.

Thanks
