Power outage problems

My computer will not reboot after a power outage. There's a black screen that says "Compaq" and Esc=reboot, f1=yadda yadda, f10=system recovery but nothing happens when I hit these buttons to reboot my computer. What should I do?

The screen lights but the desktop never appears. what's wrong?


Try the soft reset. By removing the battery and power plug. Press the ESC or F1 key for 10 seconds without removing your finger to the ESC or F1 plug the power back in. Then when it powers up remove your finger to the ESC or F1 key. This will reset your laptop and check the hardware problems.

On the bottom, it shows <esc=boot menu> <f1=setup> <f10=system recovery> but it doesn't respond to anything or move from this screen


Check that your keyboard is connected, and is working properly.
Try your keyboard on a different computer.
Try a different keyboard on your computer.

The 'ESC' key should always work.
The 'F1' key should always work.
If your disk-drive is *NOT* "dead", then the 'F10' key should work.

If neither 'ESC' nor 'F1' work, you have a serious problem with the motherboard.

Cannot boot up normally the screen stays dark, but clicking esc when powering up and continuing with f1 does work. why?


Sounds as though your drive boot setup isn't right check in BIOS. F1 is the classic "Continue" after problem encounter key. The Esc, allow you to override and continue.

Remove the battery for 12 min, then power up your computer with your power cable only, then press ESC rapidly , if not, press F2 rapidly.

your computer will start up, i suggest that you remove your graphics card driver and use another more compatible one, because this is the problem!

I have set up my compaq computer , it was working fine, then I shut it down. Now when I start it up it goes into the compaq screen asking for press esc or f11 or f10 etc for rebooting etc. What have I...


The Start up screen for Compaq series computers is normal, that screen takes you into your BIOS mode. when the screen appears press F1, at the bottom of the screen it will say press F5 or one of those keys to install your Default Settings, Click Yes and Exit. That should do it. Good Luck.

I bought a Compaq Computer, 2.0Ghz, 256MB, 20GB for my College project. When i put the power on, it restarts almost immediately (so many times repeatedly). Then after such reboots, it successfully brings a message "1801 - Microcode Patch Error" and a F1-Boot directive.
