Question about Compaq Presario F767NR Notebook

1 Answer

Not sure how, but our Compaq Presario F767NR notebook PC running Home Vista, shut down and will not power on. The fan does not power up or anything. When we press the power button, the 3 small blue lights on the front panel flash and then go out. The middle "Lightning Bolt" light stays on. Tried booting with only the battery, with only the power supply, and with both. Nothing else happened in any of those trials.

Presario F767NR Audio has disappeared

do not have USB headphones connected, now, or it will fail ! (ask)
you forgot to NO SOUND FROM INTERNAL speakers.
not magically, XP is now dead. your PC runs XP or VISTA right
that are both dead now, MS does not support them,
that means if driver goes missing (lots of ways, no need guess them here) but are now gone, your PC cant get them from MS now because they (MS) shut down the PnP servers. (means no drivers)
VISTA went to NO SUPPORT spring 2017, a fact.
its and old PC, why not reload the OS, windows, from you original disks.? or try the F11 key ,at power on (recovery)?

this pc was made in the year 2007, and has some support still.
how lucky you, most this old HP drops support.totally.
HP does not sell install media this old though if F11 fails.
NOw your official support pages at HP next:
HP says it came with VISTA, is VISTA still there??? we cant help
you at ALL lacking that critical factor.
but lets pretend you did say VISTA. 32bit (click control panel, then pick system icon, read what you own there)
so click this. vista 32
see that sound driver there,? sure, run this. driver intaller
from HP, this and only this works, Vista 32

that is all there is. on Conexant chips.(sound/audio)
for this PC, but do know that other driver must be good too or the sound chip can fail. (for sure the one marked "chipset")
reload them all but do not do
try the first 4 on that page. to get sound. working.

do not run XP drivers on Vista that is hopeless as can be.
did you know 99% of the drivers web sites you see
are full of virus or wrong drivers, or both.
do not use those.
use HP drivers.
the chip maker was bought out and no support now.
see what I mean by zero support for old things?

Not only that but your PC can be virus infected and sound dead is the least of the worries.

Compaq Presario F767NR wifi overheating video card

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Broken fan on compaq

don't keep running it until you replace the fan. Look for one on ebay or around the web. It is shutting down because of heat. A $20 fan could cost you your whole laptop if you keep running it.

Yeah I dont think they are allowed to make xp drivers even if they wanted to. Try getting all the information about your computer as you can, video card, audio card, nic, ect. Then download separate drivers for everything. If things dont work out just go back to vista or linux, (fedora, ubuntu, kubuntu, red hat, ect.) linux is better anyways and its just fun to use.
