To recover your data try to start the computer in safe mode.
If this doesn't work try to mount your hard disk on another computer.
Restart the computer and after Bios loads up and press F8.
Then select Safe Mode and press Enter.
Run a virus scan, assuming that you have an Antivirus program installed.
You must have a good antivirus program .
Have you recently installed a new program and/or device?
You should uninstall it from Safe mode if so.
Have you used the System Restore option?
then try it.It may solve your problem.
or else try this
Take everything out- RAM, video card, controller card, and all the other adapters.
Disconnect the cables from the drives.
Turn on the system.
A series of beeps from the board should be the result.
If there are no beeps:
Make sure that the speaker is connected.
If the speaker wires are attached, then the motherboard or the CPU are the cause of the problem or it could be a short.

Helo any1 there...i hv a compaq pressario cq40 144tu laptop with 2gb ram installed with windows 7 home basic 64 bit..it is recently crashed now i want to install 32 bit windows 7 on it.but the installation...


Downgrading from 64bit to 32 bit is not possible

the drivers that work in 64bit don't work in 32bit
64bit windows on a 64bit processor would work faster and more efficiently than a 32bit version of windows, i'd recommend against installing 32bit Win7 when you already have 64bit

if you do end up downgrading visiting the Compaq site and looking in their downloads section should lead you to some drivers for your laptop

however, if you got Win7 64bit as stock with your laptop 32bit windows might not be supported by the manufacturer

Most Compaq computers come with a ONE-YEAR WARRANTY.
So, contact Compaq, since your computer is less than one year old, and get them to trouble-shoot the problem, and/or repair/replace the computer, by exercising your warranty.

I've a Compaq Pressario 6000 laptop with Windows XP Home edition. I've 2 problems: 1. Sometimes I cannot turn on my laptop. When I press the power button, the LED lights turn on but it does not start-up...


The First Problem is a Hardware fault there can be two thing which are the cause first battry and other is the charging socket of the laptop. Now you can see that you can check by changing battry and if does not works then it would require repairing of charging sockect . Claming waranty is the better option if you still have.

For the second problem all you have to do is to update the driver of your Wifi device in laptop..... hopefully your problem will be solved....

Compaq Pressario V2000


If you know how ?reset the memory and restart the computer
at the boot press F8 if the menu appears try last known good confiuration that worked if this does not work you need to format and reinstall the os the blue screen is and indication of driver failuer or hardware conflick and if the system.last good config will only work 1 time after that it will wipe out the os and you will have to restore from the restore disk,and the best way to do that is to reformat the drive and do a clean install ,but if you have windows there is a restore mode your disk will say press F2 to restore now

Help me to find a laptop with graphics card at a range of 30000


Choosing the laptop, the first import thing is the purpose for which you want to buy.

1. If its just for normal home usage with a gaming bit of gaming, then you can choose HP Pavilion series, as they come with good graphic cards. Even Dell Studio/XPS can be considered.

2. If the Purpose is limited to just surfing the net, with some MS Office application, then you can choose cheaper options like Dell Inspiron Series or HP-Compaq Pressrio series. The will come in a range from 33k to 38 k.

3. If you are a linux geek, then for sure go for HP Compaq Pressario the cheapest one (they don't come with OS) and you can choose your own OS (from Ununtu to debian or any other Linux OS). Even if you want to put your version of Windows OS, then you can do so in these laptops (I hate to use Vista as its pathetically slow, I removed Vista Premium from my laptop and now I am using XP as its really very fast. When Windows remove support for XP completely, by then Vista would statbilize, as of now, it keeps crashing every now and then).

Hope this helps.

Claification to my problem with compaq pressario


Hi. Azrul here. Here is 2 of my best solution for your problem:

1. Online support from your PC's manufacturer. Restart your PC using a Windows XP/Vista CD and download all the related drivers for your PC online (you will need your compaq presario model number for this)

2. There is also an option to purchase the restore disc online. Depending on the age of the PC that you purchased, just google for "Compaq" or "Hewlett-Packar"and get the restore disk from there.
