Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Compaq Presario v5000. It use to freeze while in use with the OS. It progressively got worse till it started doing it on start-up before any OS would start loading. The first time of turning it on for the day you'd get the furthest but after restarting it would freeze quicker. Now it just freezes just before, during, and just after the compaq logo appears on the screen. Not a chance for the OS to start. I've tried different RAM and HD to no avail. I've read that it could be the driver for the CPU (AMD Turion) but the driver I downloaded is an exe and I won't have a chance to execute. Any ideas, please!
Thanks in advance.
If you aren't worried about what you have on the hard drive or if you have been diligent and backed everything up i would say the easiest fix is to re-format and re-install your operating system from scratch.This would re-set everything to default and in turn re-set the bios .
If your not up for that and you can get into the bios by either a F1,F2 or delete while starting up , then you could just try re-setting everything back to factory settings or default ....which ever option it gives you .... If this doesn't , any of the afore mentioned help, then my next thought would be the cpu or motherboard has the issues. good luck
