Won't boot up

My laptop will not boot up. All I get is the Compaq page. None of the keys will work, so I can't do anything. Just returned from a trip with my laptop and it worked perfectly. Came home, plugged it in and nothing works. Hope someone can help.

Cannot Access the BIOS of my Compaq nx8220. I have pressed every button imaginable on the keyboard during boot up but nothing works. only f10 lets me get to what looks like a bios but i cannot edit...

You have already found that the 'F10' key is the correct key to enter BIOS SETUP.

> cannot edit anythig, or set boot preferences

You should be able to do the above, if you have entered the correct password.
Please explain.

Hp 6735s was used last night and shut down properly but this morning turning it on the system continue booting without displaying anything on the screen which makes it blank / black........ Please I need...

If there is a display switch in the functions on the keyboard (most likely will look like a laptop monitor or a computer monitor on the keyboard). Press the function key and the button associated with that and wait 3 to 4 seconds (you may have to press it multiple times) If you have anything in the vga slot, then it may think a monitor is plugged in and won't display the laptop screen.
If none of the above work, then maybe your computer is having a systematic failure, or the screen connector is loose.

Compaq Presario Laptop 2700 bios

you've got a corrupted file most likely,

but thus your computer managed to boot up before this thing show up on screen?

If yes try to go to safe mode by pressing F8 before it boots up then go to recovery or restore setting to earlier time before this thing happen.

If it does able to boot up after pressing the power then you'll have no choice but to reformat your hard drive, you can do this if you have other computer where you can attach your hardrive, but if none, much be better to bring it to service center

My compaq presario f700 laptop boots when it wants

Your system is damaged. You need to have Vista cd. (or xp, or linux, etc) Then you must get to Bios, or bootmenu. When laptop boots, it is on a screen what key to press to make bios or menu running. Maybe f2 or del, maybe f12. When you in Bios, search something like bootmenu, or advanced bios features, then - first boot device. Make it as -cdrom. Press enter or maybe page up/down to change it. Now you must save this by pressing f10 or some key for save, and pressing y. Comp will boot again and run from Vista cd. In its menu you have option repair, but not always this will work (If you doing it with xp, forget to repair Vista). Try this, and if not working, reinstall system on the same partition. Dont format drive, just install, it will give you no loss of data (with xp, i dont think so, you just have to format system partition, but if you have something on second and more, non system partition, dont format it, data on this second will be ok). This it for instalation. After, you will have old vista in some folder (With xp you dont). You should delete this folder when everything works. Do not delete the new one :) No, no, you will find it easy, it should be something like -oldwindows. Better to remove it, cos' it takes a lot of hd. After it all try to find some good antivirus to avoid situations like this.

I need to master reset my compaq presario v2000

I have to assume you mean you Windows to become the way it was originally? If you have XP then put in the XP disk boot from it, press Enter when the system ask if you want to install Windows. Press F8 when the legal page comes up and then on the next page it should ask if you want to repair your system. Press R. If the repair option does not appear then press F3 to exit.
If you have Vista - it only has a boot repair option
If none of these apply then you'll have to do a total reinstall. You do have the Office suite on CD with your own key?

My keyboard doesn't work

Hello tdclaude,
Without being able to physically look at the laptop, it is very hard to determine the cause. Here is a good article concerning a dead laptop keyboard:
