F500 - computer froze

Still under warranty (2 months old) and I've replaced the harddrive, but it's still frozen. It doesn't even sound like it's trying to boot. The lights are on, but the screen is black.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Take it back to where you got it. You paid good money for it. Make them fix it or replace it.

Hi guys we have made the mistake in buying 3 laptops brand new from you guys first one replaced under warranty less than a year old a lot of money to replace the software 2 one fixed under warranty 8...

So, what is your question?

There is nobody on FIXYA that "officially" speaks for either HP or their COMPAQ subsidiary.

Buy the "three-year-extended-warranty" from HP before the "standard" warranty expires.

Review your "backup" strategy, to eliminate/minimize any "data" loss that you might experience when each laptop fails.

How to end Compaq CQ70 misery

I have owned a CQ70 for 2 years 2 months. Before I reveal my tips, here's my experience:
On purchase:
- quick start guide doesn't even show keys and switches, how to use camera, etc
- no software or manual supplied, only useless safety guide CD
- request for info to Compaq online: they returned a form to let them know how well they had served me when they hadn't served me at all
- subsequent requests unanswered
- complaint to returned a worm called HTML-script-inf
First year:
- keyboard failed after 2 months; replaced under warranty
- screen failed after just under a year; replaced under warranty
- sound regularly disappears; have to reboot
- carrying bag burst within 6 months
- SD card reader worked intermittently for a few months, then not at all
Second year:
- I accidentally discovered the touchpad disable button; it doesn't work
- battery expired after 18 months
- replacement screen started to fail after 18 months
- replacement screen failed completely after 2 years 2 months
- I get electric shocks off the left side
- it generates constant flow of "Enter" commands; keyboard, mouse, USB ports cleaned to no avail; clears on reboot for a few hours (no viruses / worms - I regularly check)
- the HDD will not start spinning on mains power; I have to remove power cord and start on battery only, then replace power cord

Tip #1: I understand from a friend who works for HP that the good components go into the HP series and all the s*** into the Compaq series, so DON'T BUY COMPAQ.
Tip #2: If you have already bought one, put it in the bin or use it for landfill
Tip #3: If you want a reliable computer that will last for years, buy a cheap and cheerful Taiwanese no-brand. We've got two - they're great.

Hi there. I have a pb dot s2 netbook which is only a month old. When i turn it on the mouse pointe ris froze in the middle of the screen and will not move using the touchpad. Everything seems to be booting...

The problem sounds like it is either related to the touchpad drivers or it is a hardware issue. As the netbook is only a month old the best advice I can give would be to return it to your supplier for resolution under warranty.

Power drain would be a better solution in this case.

2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .

2 Lines on my Gateway laptop when I turn on my computer

To be honest, I would have Compaq repair it. If it's only 6 months old it is under warranty, USE the warranty. It sounds like the screen has a short or the cable does. Make Compaq fix it.

Acer Aspire one will not turn on.

If this laptop is one month old why even mess with it. Take it back to the manufacturer or store where you got it and get it fixed on warranty. Never fix something you're not sure about when you can get a professional to fix it for free.

Sony vaio BCG K23 blue screen...not booting up

Hello Nick,
It could mean a faulty hard drive, is the laptop still under warranty ?
During the power on sequence you may be able to press a key example 'F10' for hardware utilites this should allow you to test the harddrive. If the harddrive is faulty you have to replace it.
Unfortunately it that mean you will have to reinstall windows. It doesnt seem to be totally dead so if you have data that you want to recover perhaps a professional could help.
Removing the battery will not help this appears to be hardware related

Hp laptop froze


I understand that notebooks boots into safemode, but when you are trying to reinstall the OS it is freezing, let me assist you in this regard.

As the notebook is frezing while installing the OS, first we need to check the Harddrive.

In DV6000 notebooks, there will be option to do Harddrive selft test.

1 Restart the notebook
2. At HP logo screen keep pressing the F10 key to open BIOS.
3. In the BIOS you can find the Diagnose Tab. (Select it)
4. Under that click on harddrive self test.

If the test pass, you need another set of recovery disks to Restore notebook to factory settings.

If the test fails, then you need to replace the harddrive.

If the notebook is under warranty, then you will get new harddrive from HP.

My computer won't work

most clicking sound are made by failing harddrive... check with gateway people again if it is still under warranty and ask them to replace the drive or fix it.

fyi -- if it is really the hard drive that is making the clicking noise... there is a big chance that you will loose your data
