Your boot menu for Windows is corrupt. Try to boot from the windows installation disc and make sure to key any key when told to boot off the disc. Once the windows files load, you will have a choice of what to do next. If you have XP, choose the repair option and you will be faced with a black DOS screen...after the blinking cursor type

FIXBOOT hit enter
Try to boot the computer without the disc in it. If it does not boot, then boot off disc again and this time type:

FIXMBR hit yes and enter

Try once again to boot without the disc.

Also try to boot into safe mode by tapping F8 when you see the Compaq name come up during starting. If you can get to the multiple boot up option screen, scroll to "Safe mode with networking" and choose that. If it boots then you can go to the start button > accessories > system tools > system restore > choose a restore point back a day or two and follow the prompts.

If you have Vista, boot off the disc and choose start up repair. If that doesn't work, boot again and choose restore computer to an earlier time. Again choose a restore point back a few days. Good luck ParrotHead PC Repair

I got this computer off side of road and can't get windows to load it's try's then the screen goes black . here is what happens . I turn it on the screen comes up black it asks what I would like to do ?...


The first screen (start windows normally etc) appears because the computer ahs not shut down normally before. Since you choose to start windows (normally or last known...) and the Windows logo comes up with the loading bar, this means that the computer is starting to boot. Some hardware or software (windows) problem appears and the boot never ends. Possible reasons: motherboard failure or hard disk failure. A good idea is to re-install windows to check the results. Mention that in case of reinstalling the windows, during the procedure choose to reformat the hard disk so it will be checked for errors and reported.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Monitor displays Msg. frequency out of range, screen is black


Start your computer and press the F8 when the manufacturer's logo screen is showing. This will bring you to the Windows startup menu. Pick "start in VGA mode" and windows will start up with video settings you monitor can handle. Then you can change your video settings so Windows will start normally with your monitor.

The monitor setting in windows maybe incorrect. When booting up before you get the windows logo start hitting F8 and then choose safe mode. If your monitor works in windows there then check the monitors settings. You may have a driver issue or a settings issue when in normal windows mode.

On Pwr up logo appears then LCD returns to stanby Black screen


I will assume the monitor is staying on during the boot process all the way until Windows loads.
If that is the case, then...
  • Start the computer
  • wait until the initial bios/logo screens for your motherboard go away.
  • Press F8 to get the Windows recovery boot menu
  • If you see the Windows Logo you would normally see then press rest and try again.
  • In the recovery screen, select SAFE MODE
  • Boot into Windows and uninstall your video card.
  • Reboot the computer the normal way through the start menu.
  • When your PC starts back up it should then reinstall the video card, and set itself automatically back to 60khz as default.
Let me know how you go =)
