Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

Will turn in but won't really start up, message pops up sayin I have problems on my laptop but it can't fix them? Read description


When your toshiba splash screen is showing on startup, press F8 continuously, then you should get some options, go to the one that says safe mode. After loading windows in safe mode click start, search, and type system restore. Open system restore, find a date where your pc was working correctly and click restore. If this doesn't do it on the toshiba spash screen (if you have a new enough laptop) there will be an option called system recovery usually f11 key, this will restore your pc back to its factory state and should resolve any problems your having. If you don't have that option go to https://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/serviceUnitVerification.jsp and see if you can order a set of recovery disc's for your model, they usually run from $25-$30. Hope this helps.

Windows7 does no load on start uo. Startup Repair has tried several times but still cannot determine the cause of the problem


Win7, I have to say, is a very stable OS and the cause of your problem is possibly malware/Viral or just hard drive errors.
If you can boot up within safe mode, run CHKDSK/F from the search box and reboot.
Fingers crossed it is fixed.

1. Wait the long 5 minutes for your computer to boot. Once you're on the desktop, go to the start menu. Select "run..." Type "msconfig" (no quotes) into the box. The Microsoft system configuration utility should pop up (if you're on Windows XP, Windows 2K users visit: www.techadvice.com/win2000/m/msconfig_w2k.htm

Once this handy tool pops up go to the "Startup" tab...
You will see a list of every process that runs on system startup. Some of these should look familiar; if you know what a program on this list is and you know you don't want it loading on system startup, uncheck it. There will probably be items on the list that you don't recognize. Any of the things on this list can be googled; you'll find a page which explains what a process is, and if it's vital to the system or not. Anything non-essential or unwanted should just be unchecked. Without having to load all that additional garbage your aging computer should boot up much faster (depending on how many processes you disabled). When you exit the msconfig utility you'll see a message about restarting now or later; you are not required to restart right after you do this.

I have re loaded maxtor onto anothe computer using the start up disc but when executing a window appears asking for driver information. what do i need to do ?


it is asking for the drivers that it needs to "talk" toyour drive. a driver is a small software program that makes a hrd ware device work. when you bout the drive there should have beena disc with drivers on it. perhaps the startup disc even. unplug the drive from the computer and install the drivers then re plug it in. it should work. if you do not have the drivers for it you can get them from www.maxtor.com/support
but most likely the disc you have has them on it. the trouble you have is that you MUST unplug the drive and install the drivers FIRST. othwise you will get an error asking for the drivers.
so just unplug it and put the disc in you drive and look for "install drivers" option when the cd starts up.

I have a COMPAQ Presario V4000 notebook with Windows XP Pro factory installed. I am trying to find out how to clean up the boot/startup file so that only the necessary programs load on startup, over the...


First uninstall and program you don't use with Add/Remove Programs.
Look in Start - Programs - StartUp to see some of them. You can delete these safely if you want.

Use AutoRuns to see what other startup programs you have and where they are located.

You can also Start - Run - MSCONFIG and use Startup tab to enable or dissble some programs and then reboot to see if it still works OK. If not then you can just run MSCONFIG again and tick the box to put them back in again.

Please rate this answer if it helped.
