    I have a Compaq SR5249UK and i have the same problem.



    The computer is about 12 months old, and has hardly been used.



    When the initial boot screen apperars it displays with ESC=Boot Menu, F10=Setup and F11 is Recovery.



    I have read your link to Setup and Boot Menu but on repeatedly pressing either ESC or F10 the screen is still static. When i press these keys before the computer has time to boot up i get a message saying Entering Setup, but it has displayed this for over an hour with no sign of changing screen it menu.



    The DVD drive initiates but there is no other sound coming from the tower other than the CPU Fan.



    I hope you can help.

While your system is still booting from start, keep hitting F11 to get past that point then proceed with the system recovery.

Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

Repair your computer is missing from the F8 reboot option, how do i do a factory restore with this option missing


If you can boot into Windows, click on start and then open your control panel. Then click on recovery. Then click on advance recovery and select return computer to factory conditions. Answer any question and the system should reboot. Answer a few more questions and then it should go on autopilot and reset your system back to factory conditions. This should take one or two hours. It is best to check on it to make sure everything is going fine. If your resetting a lappy, make sure you have the AC adapter plugged up. You do not want this process interrupted.

If you can not boot into Windows then try Advanced boot options. When you press the power button, start tapping the F8 key. You will see the advance boot menu. Select repair your computer. Select your language and then enter your user name and password. The click on Dell factory Image Restore and next. Answer the question and it should start the recovery back to factory settings.

If all else fails try recovery from the recovery partition

When you press the power button start tapping the F12 key for your puter and the BIOS menu will open. Select recovery from the menu, answer the question and the recovery should begin. Depending on your puter this will take one to two hours.

Your BIOS menu should look something like this. Yours might be different. I am posting this to give you an idea of what it looks like.

ESC = BIOS menu

F1 = System Info

F2 = System Diagnostic

F9 = Boot Device options

F10 = BIOS Setup

F11 = System recovery

What button do i hit at start up to reformat the hard drive on a compaq presario 700


Hi purple7558

did you mean format the hard disk and then install the operating system.?
press F10 to enter the bios setup, then set the boot sequence to cd rom first.
insert your windows cd into the cd rom.
save settings and restart. after the computer restarts it will detect that you enter cd then press enter.
the next process is the usual kind of format and install your operating system.

thanks&regards

Hp screen wont start up i just get the blue hp screen f10 = start up esc= boot menu f11=system recovery f9 = dignoses when i pree these buttonms nothing happens tried unplugging everything and still...


If pressing F11 ("system recovery") does nothing, then your disk-drive, which contains a "system recovery partition" is inaccessible,
i.e., your disk-drive has failed.

You'll need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, and use the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.

I have a HP Touchsmart IQ500 that is a little over a year old. It was working fine and I went out one day to come back and start it up to find it was only a blue screen with a few options.I found someone...


Hi,
This might be an issue with the Hard drive or the operating system installed on the hard drive.
Try to access BIOS screen tapping on F10 on restart.
If you are able to access Bios try to run the Short smart self test on the Hard drive.
To run the test follow the steps as follows:
on the main window you will see 1 st drive 2nd drive 3rd drive 4th drive.
besides these drive letters you will find your Hard drive listed.
Highlight that and press enter.
on the next screen highlight Smart support and press enter.
on the next screen select Short smart self test and run the test.
If it gives an error code that means the hard drive has gone bad.
2)If not then come back on the main page by clicking on ESC button till you come back to the main page.then Press F5 select yes to load set up defaults and press enter.Press F10 once to save configuration changes and press enter.
It will boot to windows.
3)Still if you face the same issue then you need to perform the recovery using the recovery cds.
4)If you don't have the recovery cds then you can contact HP support and order the cds and perform the recovery.
This should resolve your issue.
Thanks.

Compaq Presario Disk Boot Failure, insert sytem disk and press enter


If you have your original Windows install disk, you can boot off of that, and should be able to recover most of your files, assuming your drive has not died fully. Depending on how important your files are, you can send the drive to a drive recovery service. I did that a couple years ago, they were able to recover all my files but it was EXPENSIVE. $1200.
