Compaq Presario 1245

Yesterday my laptop worked fine and today when I turn it on, it gets stuck on "starting windows". I have left it on for hours and it still doesnt work and I have turned it off and back on several times. Do you know how I can fix this?

Thank you,

Re: Compaq Presario 1245

Have you recently added any software?

It seems to be looking for a driver, etc and can't locate it, so it is "hanging".

Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)

This means that the data inside the D drive is gone. If you had deleted the D drive data or had gotten rid of this partition then your outta luck in trying to restore your system back to factory settings (getting windows reloaded).

All is not lost if you are willing to pay HP/Compaq for their restore CD's this will get your laptop and running again. I paid a copy of these CD's 3yrs ago and cost me $45CDN to get them.

you could try booting on battery instead of mains and see what happens, also could the screen be switched off ? If you have access to another monitor, you could try plugging it in to see if the video output is ok. ( some laptops have a facility to switch off the screen display for security etc )

Compaq Presario 1245 doesn't start up

Most laptops have a video connector that you can use to connect you laptop to an external monitor. connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if anythig comes up on the external monitor.Your laptop has a key to switch between it's own screen and the external monitor.When you use the external monitor ,you'll have to use this key to switch to the monitor.Your battery should'nt matter if the laptop is running on AC.Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

somthing thats worth trying is going into my computer, right click on the cdrom drive and click eject if it works that way then its software thats stopping it from ejecting, if it still dont work take a paperclip and push it in the small hole in the cdrom drive and it will pop out its only a temporary thing but it works to get the cd out.. All the Best John
