Question about Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook
I was downloading music to my mp3 player, left the laptop on all night and woke up this morning to see this flashing on my screen
First please try to boot to last known good configuration ..
To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key. .
If you will still see the same problem, then please boot to safe mode..
To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
From safe mode you can restore your PC to the latest restore point when your laptop is working fine.

To start ensure that there is no disk inside the DVD or optical unit. Unplug any memory stick, or external storage device, and try removing laptop battery, and unplugging the laptop from power for five minutes.
Reconnect the AC adapter (and if you want refit battery first), and restart the laptop.
If you still get the problem, that means that either Windows startup files (often boot.ini), or the hard disk itself may be damaged.
The first thing to try is reinstalling the operative system.
To re-install Windows you will need an HP recovery disk for this model (best choice) , or a copy of Windows install disk with a valid licence number.
Try first unplugging , removing battery, and restarting with no bootable device attached (DVD, CD, USB sticks etc.).
