When I move my compaq lap top or type a key too hard

When I move my compaq lap top or type key too hard etc, my screen goes multiple colurs. It has been doing this few weeks and recently started going Blue Screen. I turn off the machine and it reboots, no error on boot other than typical "windows serious error". Is this a motherboard or video card error?

That sounds like a video card error. if you can disassemble the notebook, check for loose connectors, particularly the connector that goes to the screen.

I want to know how to restore mr presario compaq sr1720nx back to factory settings


There are multiple instances when you would want to wipe your PC's memory clean and reset it to the factory defaults.


Called "formatting," it is often the last-ditch effort to restore a PC to functionality.

You will also have to format your PC if it gets crippled by viruses.


Although these instructions are for the Compaq Presario, the steps are essentially the same for all Windows based PCs. Be sure that you want to delete everything this process is irreversible.


Back up any data that you want to keep by saving it to removable media, such as external hard drives, flash drives, DVD-R, etc.

Unplug all peripheral devices, except for the keyboard and mouse.


Turn on the computer. As the computer is starting, repeatedly press F1 to initiate the recovery process.

When the BIOS setup screen appears, press the right arrow key to select "Boot".


Press the down arrow key to select "Boot Device Priority" and press "Enter".

Press the down arrow key to select "CD-ROM" and press "+" to move it to the top of the list.


Open the CD-ROM tray, and insert the system recovery disk.

Exit the BIOS setup by pressing "F10". Be sure to select "Save Changes and Exit".


System recovery should initiate. If it does not, and the PC loads Windows, then you have either failed to set the CD-ROM at the top of the boot priority list or you exited the BIOS setup without saving.


Press "R" to begin the recovery process.

When prompted, select "Full System Recovery".


Restart the computer when the process has completed.


Hope this helps.

How to clean the LCD screen of lap top ?


you could use a cleaner from Kensington (http://www.kensington.com/html/1081.html)
to clear LCDs and it works great. It comes in a little spray bottle, and I use these neat little 3M 'electronics' microfiber cloths to buff off the spray. Works like a charm.

Lap top wont boot up past the windows screen


This generally indicates that a sector in the hard drive has failed, and the hard drive will need to be replaced. With a bad sector the drive reads to the point of the bad sector and past the bad sector, but can't put the info together, so it tries to boot, but can't. Unfortunately, your only option is replacing the hard drive.
