Re: help on my compaq

Do you have data on the hard drive... if not I will suggest a reformat of the hard drive and do a fresh installation... if that fails then check if your hard drive is a good one....I hope your boot sector is not damaged

It turns into blue screen with white texts and from below, its says terminating (memory-something) and has a countdown... and reboots itself. computer: Compaq Presario PC SR5050NX

Its probably saying memory dump and the countdown. This is mostly encountered after some kinda change on the pc. It can be new hardware, software or just plain windows update. Lots of times it ends up being a corrupt driver. Try to boot in to safe mode and see doe sit still do same thing. if not than you know it is software related and you can do system restore. To boot in to safe mode on reboot keep on tapping key F8 and choose safe mode. Once in safe mode if it works go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools and choose system recovery. choose like a week back and click next and this will do a restore to when pc was working, fine. If you cant boot into safe mode it is possible it has issues with hardware and this should be checked out by a pc repair shop. Another option you can try if same mode dont work try to do same thing on boot keep on tapping key F8 and instead choosing safe mode try choosing Last Known Good Configuration. this is similar to restore. Hope this helps.

Im having problems starting my compaq from the windows 7 install disk. I set up bios to start from dvd drive, but get a blank screen.

Windows 7 is a large operating system and would require your system to have the maximum of 1GB of memory installed. If there isn't sufficient memory for the system to load the Windows Pre Boot Environment then the install can not continue.
This system is 9-10 years old and will not run Windows 7 very well, but if you install the maximum amount of memory it should install the operating system.
You may also want to verify that the DVD drive works by trying to boot to another bootable disc such as a Windows XP installation disc or an Ultimate Boot CD that you can create yourself.

Got compaq presario will not boot up code purple do i need new mother board

Call Support for Compaq to get help if:

You have reinstalled windows and have added / changed the configuration (new memory, hard drive / other parts)
You are installing windows other than the orginal cd from Hp/Compaq

This is a "feature" of the motherboard, they may have you send the pc to them . take it to an authorized dealer.

Boot pc problem

You can solve this by going into the bios setup & changing the boot order. Make the dvd/cd drive 1st in boot line then hdd. This should allow you to boot up from the windows xp disc. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

RAM upgrade gone wrong?

Did you already try using last know good configuration?
When your computer boots instead of f10 press F8. Then select last known good configuration and enter.

if it didn't work try booting up the computer without the memory see if it will have the same problem.
