Try booting to Safe Mode (repeatedly press F8) and then shut down and restart.

If still a problem, may be BIOS problem.

To reload the factory BIOS settings to the setup default:
1. Press the F5 function key.
2. Select Yes or OK .
3. Press the Enter key.
4. Press the F10 function key.
5. Select Yes or OK to save the default

Hope this helps.settings

If you have an IPOD, Card Reader, or any other device attached externally to the computer, try removing them and then booting up. Also, remove any CD/DVD from the drive if there's one in there. If this doesn't work, you may have to check your BIOS settings and make sure it's trying to boot from your hard drive first. Otherwise, you'll probably have to get a computer technician to fix it for you.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

James

Why won't my compaq presario 1250 load windows?


1 - You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


2 - Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Computer won't work right


Try entering on security mode.

Press F8 when computer starts, so that appears the booting menu.
Try the "safe mode" and revert for example to last recovery, if it's windows XP.

Black screen after compaq splash screen


On boot up hit F8 and see if you can get in that way and install your video drivers again, that would have been my starting place too, Video. If that doesn't get it:
I hate to say this, but reinstall your operating system and look for the most updated driver you can find. P-3 way to go...keep'er rolling..
Hope this really helps...Thank you kindly please leave rating....good luck.
