Yes I used the boot up disc. There are 8 discs total. It took the boot up disc then the second one then when I put in the third like it prompt it wouldn't take. It's like it's not reading any more.

I went and redid everything and now it won't even take the boot disc.

Why won't my compaq presario 1250 load windows?


1 - You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


2 - Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Hello, go on the hp.com/support website and type in your model name/number. You'll get a list of drivers you can download. It looks like you may have a ATI Radeon Xpress 200, but I only took a quick look.
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.
