Question about Compaq Presario S3310CL (DF246AR#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer will not load windows. I have a black

My Compaq Presario s3310cl Computer will not load windows. I have a black screen and I don't have a operating disc or disc to boot or any discs for it for that matter. I would just renew everything and begin anew if it were possible. Is there anyway to remedy my situation on my own or do I need a service technisian to take a look? Am I able to get a operating system disc thru compaq?
My mom gave me this computer thinking it was a minor problem and would still make me a good computer for home. Its looking a little bleak at the moment and I havn't a clue what to try to do to it.
Thanks so much.

Any windows install disk will work, as long as you have a valid licence and the correct key. If you decide to reinstall and use not an Compaq disk you will have to install the corresponding drivers also.
But i think this is a little complicated for someone without any experience so i think it would be better for you to install a Linux Operating System - and you would be immune to viruses with it.
Go to  http://pclinuxos.com/ and download the disk. Burn it and boot from it - the OS  will run from the disk (it's called a Live-CD). If you like it just launch the installer from the desktop.

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.

Compaq Presario s3310cl starts when hooking in power plug and will not shutoff using power button. Just started doing this today. Someone said to unhook everything and hold power button in for 20 seconds...


The On/Off switch is mounted inside of the Case Front Bezel. It is
very unlikely that it is broken. The problem is the front bezel
plastic switch (which is not really the switch) is more like a cap or a
knob that comes in contact with the actual switch is somehow broken.
You can remove the front bezel to see I am talking about.
Manually push On/push Off on the actual switch and your system will turn
On and Off like it should.

I have a presario cq61 and have forgot my password can u help


Try starting the computer in safe mode. Turn on the computer and once the COMPAQ screen clears press F8 a few times - don't hold down the key however. Winodws stops loading at teh Startup Options screen (black, text only). From that menu use the cursor keys and ENTER to select "Safe Mode". Once Windows loads (it may look humungous!), login as the Administrator (which should now be visible). Use this account to reset your forgotten user password. Restart once complete - the computer will automatically start normally.

Messages are not visible, when i try to open it it shows only loading..... & nothing else. I cant see the msges pl sort out this problrm.


It seems like your connection you are using is slow. try to load your email with the basic version of your email client. If that doesnt make it work then consider checking your internet connection.

My Compaq presario f572us notebook screen turns black upon normal startup. The screen does not turn black if I start-up in the safe mode. It only when i attempt to start windows normally. Everything loads...


i also have a compaq presario f572us that's been having similar problems. when i went onto the hp website i saw that apparently they've been having similar problems with this type of computer as they offer free repairs for 2 years after you bought it. you should probably check if this works for you too

My computer starts up perfectly fine, i click the " start windows normally" button, and it loads. Then after loading the screen turns black ( I can still see the LED light and cursor) PLEASE HELP!


When it ask you how you want to start the computer the select Last known Good Configuration. It should boot up normally.
Then go o the control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and check for any devices that didn't install (the ones with the yellow ?)
You will need to reinstall these drivers.
