Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have upgraded my Compaq Presario 1246 laptop with extra ram and a lerger hard drive - no problems. I cannot get Windows XP Pro to install so I have fitted a faster CPU - AMD 550. However, the system still reports original CPU speed of 400mhz. I suspect the internal dip switches need to be changed but can you advise any information on this?

I can't install Windows Xp Sp2 For Compaq Presario Cq60 Model. a blue screen error occured after completing the files from cd to ram before entering lience agreement


You need to check your system ram or memory. If you have 2 system ram or memory unplug the other memory and install the windows xp sp2 again. If still having a blue screen try the other memory then run the setup again. Also if you have an extra hard disk drive you can test it that or plug your hard disk drive to the other laptop and run the windows xp sp2 using your hard drive. If you can install the windows xp sp2 on the other laptop that means your hard disk drive are good. If your memory and to the other laptop are compatible plug it and run the windows xp sp2 installer to see and to diagnose what are really causing problem. Have a nice day.

Can I install windows xp os to windows me? Both are compaq presario version.


It depends on the system specs.
The system ram is the most important, your laptop came with 64mb ram, you need a minimum of 128mb, but 256mb should be the absolute min with XP, here are the minimum specs from microsoft http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/sysreqs/pro.mspx

Hi i have compaq presario c700 its too slow discr


If you have changed OS, your problem probably is not due to malware or bloat.
Upgraded to 2gb ram, new hard drive. And still you think it is too slow.
I think either you are too fussy, and expect too much OR your laptop has major problems at a chipset level.
Have you tried running some benchmark software to check if it really is running slow???

I would Do a fresh install of windows, SELL it and change to a different model.
Try checking a couple of reviews on sites like Custom PC, for a good fast laptop.

When reloading windows and you are on the blue


Probably the problem is in the RAM, first open the RAM(s) and clean its both side copper teeth with a pencil eraser and try to setup XP. If not works then replace the RAM(s) and try again. Thanks.

I have a Compaq Presario 2715US. Started having


The problem maybe a loose electrical connection with the RAM modules and hard disk. Re-seat the RAM modules and the hard disk.
If the problem persists then the hard disk maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer has trouble seeing it as an external hard drive and unable to open the folders and files then the hard disk is faulty.
Then the hard disk needs to be replaced in the Compaq and Windows XP needs to installed on the new hard drive and the device drivers and programs.

Installing XP SP3 pro on my presario C700


Most likely you have a SATA drive which windows is not detecting. Restart the setup and press F6. You will need to use another system to download the SATA drivers and save to a disk. Then when prompted you can insert the disk. You can also upgrade to XP professional which will almost always recognize the SATA drives. Good Luck.

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.
