Compaq Presario S3040SE PC Desktop was working fine. when i turned it on next day screen says operating system not found. restart. now monitor wont kick on and hard drive light doesnt come on. only power...


Normaly when you get the error that the operating system cant be found, it is a indication that the hardrive has either gone bad, or somehow some of the system files got deleted. I would say though since the hard drive light wont come on it could be the hardrive has shut down completely. But you still should see the company image of your computer when you start it up, (the bios screen)

A bad hardrive would be my first guess, 2nd problem if its not your harddrive would be a new power supply.

Right-click your desktop and go to Properties (Note: Don't click an icon, just the background image of your desktop). Afterward, click the tab at the top of the new window labeled, "Screen Saver." Now at the bottom of the Window select, "Power." Now change the settings so that the system doesn't turn off the hard disks, enter standby mode, or hibernate. Afterward press OK, then Apply, then OK again.

Let me know if I can help you further, or if I need to describe any of the above instructions in more detail.

Unable to defragment


If defrag won't run at all and says you don't have enough room on the drive, you may need to delete some unused files. Defrag needs some empty space while it's working.

Defragging the drive is best done in safe mode so that nothing else will be running to interfere with the process. Turn your computer on, then after the Compaq logo screen comes up, press the F8 a few times (you're only supposed to have to press it once, but sometimes it doesn't seem to work). You should then get a startup menu. Choose "safe mode." Once Windows is running (the screen may look funny because of color and resolution settings) you can start defragmenting. Start this before you go to bed and let it run overnight. When it's all done you can shutdown and then restart normally.

Hope this is helpful.

It sounds like your friends minor clean up formatted your hard drive, Ha Ha, I know its not funny but that hit a funny spot. try installing your windows again, it should read the disk and everything will come back on. With friends like that? Good Luck.

How to take apart the case of a Compaq Presario C501NR Notebook PC so i can see the motherboard?


Hello,

According to HP, the C500 guide isn't readily available but you can use the C300 manual listed here http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00753552.pdf

You will need to start with the Removal and Replacement Procedure section.

Thanks
