Presarios normally let you access BIOS setup by pressing F10 as soon as the Compaq logo pops up on the screen when starting it. I've read that F1 is the key on some pre-2006 Presarios. Pressing the F10 key multiple times immediately after starting can be helpful.

Compaq Presario SR1000 won't boot up completely :(


Hi Thanks for your question
I would suggest to enter "safe mode" and then do system restore again. To do this you need to follow these steps.
1.Turn your PC on and press F8 on start up. This should take you to the screen asking what you want to do. 2. Choose safe mode from the list and press enter. 3. Once safe mode loads you should be asked if you want to restore your system to previous state. Just press no to run system restore and follow steps (you already know how to do this)
Shutting your computer down without closing operation system properly may cause start up issues like this one.
I hope this helps you. Good luck

I recently moved and when i went to start up my computer it takes me to a blue screen say memory is being dumped. Prior to that though there is a screen saying that a "0 drive" can not be found. Any idea...


Your 0 Drive is the main hard disk drive in your computer. That is where Windows is installed. If the pc doesn't see it, it cannot start. If you've moved, the hard drive cable or power connection may have come loose. You can try opening the case and reseating all connections and see if that works. If not, it's possible your hard drive is damaged and not working.

Do a google search for a program called "KON BOOT" burn it to a disc. That program will bypass the log on. Once on you can create a new user with full privledges and then start to remove the other users and what ever you dont want .

I have a Compaq R4000 and recently spilt coke on the keyboard, the keyboard is now malfunctioning with wrong keys appearing on screen and some not working at all. Im pretty sure I will have to bring it in...


The keyboard is fixable depending on the amount of coke spilted on it and how long it took before removing the coke but it can be fixed. It won't cost nothing much because is just taking out the keys and spraying the board itself so the coke particules be remove throughly. Im sure its least that $40-$50. Depending on the specialist you carry it to.

Computer keeps shutting down for no reason. anytime you start up it has to go through several different screens. which takes about 10-15 minutes. computer is an Acer Aspire 5100.


You need to let us know what screens keep coming up. The only screens SHOULD be the initial POST screen (which is usually black with info about your system), then the windows start up screen. Then your desktop should show. If there are numerous screens popping up after this - are they browser screens (ie. Internet Explorer or Firefox)? If so, you're probably infested with spyware.
BTW - some systems hide the POST screen with their own logo, like Compaq.
Send more info, and it will help in fixing this.
