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.
You need to get into the bios and change the startup so that it will boot off the CDROM,
Depends on PC but press the del key during startup or the f2 key will get you into the bios , bios screen is normally blue , change the boot order, some PC can prompt for boot order by pressing f10 suring startup.
Put in the XP or VIsta or what ever it is so that it boots , now select repair and this will sort the problem.
See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.
I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.
my compaq presario 5000 desktop will start and get stuck on the compaq logo screen with a cursor in the right hand corner.I try pressing F6 and it won't do anything.I tried other keys and it does nothing.Apparently my granddaughter told me ther was a message came up sayinf computer is locking up.Any help will be appreciated.
if in the starting it is showing two operating system then make sure that which one is working and which one you want to remove
then boot your system with xp and right click on the my computer icon> go to properties >click on the advanced tab > then choose startup and recovery setting > there you will see defaukt operating system if it is showing two operating system then remove the OS which you dont want. Be careful to use this option.you can reduse the time limit also.
