Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

The presario 700 is failing to boot up.

I installed a new harddrive on the machine as some had prescribed that the had drive was gone but it still boots by it self to some stage and then it shuts off . I did install anothe harddrive and as i was loading the operating system it shut off after about 10 minutes and some says it could be over heating due to a dead battery. Is this possible?

Its possible but unlikely.
startup from disk(cd) in first screen choose install windows.in next screen when previous os is found choose install new.
in next screen delete partition then create new partition then format partition and install.
if u have a problem installing after that then ur hd has bad sectors.
if this is the case let me know and can u software to solve it.
the precedure Ive mentioned usually does the trick even with bad sectors unless there are too many bad sectors.

Check the jumper settings in the back of the drive, by the power cable. Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to SLAVE, with your primary harddrive as MASTER. Check BIOS settings, specifically your boot order, choose which drive you want to load first (usually HD 0), save and exit.
That's just the basics, though.
Another possibility is that you might just have a paperweight ;)
If so, try another drive.
Hope that helps

My laptop won't boot! What should I do?


No power? Blue Screen Of Death? Blinking cursor? Black screen?
Need more info.
For anything other than a BSOD or error message:
Try unplugging from power, remove the battery, hold the power button 30 seconds. Then reinstall battery, plug in, and turn on.
If you are getting something like 'NTLDR not found' or 'Boot Sector not found', Hard disk blah blah blah etc. you might need a new hard drive or to repair errors on your existing one.
For BSOD, try starting in safe mode. If that fails, try using a bootable antivirus disk to remove any viruses or other junk and reboot.
Reply back with more info or results!

Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart error


Is it a black screen right when you boot your computer? If so this could be a fatal disk error and the harddrive has crashed.

There is no easy fix other than to replace the harddrive.

My Presario 700 freezes up at random times


sounds like the following

Virus

Spyware

Devices or drivers are conflicting.

Hard Drive is failing

Step one

Disconnect the computer from the internet.

If this is the problem it is more than likley a virus or spyware

If it still freezes proceed to step 2

Step 2

Restart Computer in safe mode, do not connect to the internet.
To restart the computer in safemode turn on computer and press F8 continuosly until a screen of options comes up.
Select Safemode without networking

If this is the problem it is more than likley a virus or spyware

If computer still freezes up proceed to step 3.

For windows XP
Locate the My Computer Icon and open it. Locate Local Disk C: Or whatever harddrive that has windows installed
RIGHT Click it. It will then open a menu of options, select properties. At the top select tools tab. Click the check now button.
A new window will pop up, check both boxes and press start.
Another window will pop up select yes and restart the computer. Do not press anything and let it work.

Considering the age of you computer it is probably the hard drive in which case should only cost about $45 for another one. search for a harddrive that fits your model on ebay or another trusted site.
It is not very difficult to change the hard drive so dont panic.

Computer wont boot after installing toshiba hard drive


You need to format and re install the O.S. system to your new harddisk before you can use it . If you installed already an operating system you can check if the booting setup in the bios is set to harddrive boot maybe the booting is set to cd device
