My hp compaq computer asks me for a ROMPaq diskett when i boot on the computer it comes on with several beeps and then tell's me to put a ROMPaq diskette in drive A and then reboot...


Sounds like you have a bios issue. The ROMPaq is probably an updated BIOS and flash utility.

If you have the model number handy, and another computer with a floppy drive, hp.com has all the ROMPaqs for download.

I have faced a problem on Compaq Evo W4000 that there is an error i.e 1801 microcode patch error so how i can remove that error


Hello,

Give a try to update BIOS. Click here and follow the intrsuction

  1. Obtain a formatted 1.44-MB diskette and place it in your A: drive.
  2. Download the SoftPaq to a directory on your hard drive. The file that is downloaded is an executable with a filename based on the SoftPaq Number above.
  3. From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to build the ROMPaq diskette.
  4. Place the newly created diskette in the A: drive of the computer to be upgraded or restored and cycle system power to boot from the ROMPaq diskette.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to select the Compaq System ROM and flash the firmware. WARNING: DO NOT TURN OFF POWER OR ATTEMPT TO REBOOT THE COMPUTER DURING THE UPGRADE PROCESS!!!

Hit what key to get into bios? are there restore keystrokes to restore?


Usually, for Compaq laptops, they Keystroke is F10. If this doesn't work you need to upgrade your BIOS in order to be able to do that. To do so, download this file: ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp10501-11000/sp10870.exe Download the file, create a diskette from it. Then boot from the diskette. Be very careful and make sure that no power loss occurs.
You might turn the notebook into a door-stop otherwise.

2.) Whatever you do, I would suggest to check whether access to BIOS-Setup with F10 on startup still works.
If not, the DIAGS partition where Diagnostics- and Setup-software is store would be missing.

My monitor keeps shutting down while my system is still running and I have to manually shut down my tower. This will happen anywhere from 1 - 10 times in an hour.


Check your power supply, check your RAM and make sure it is dust free. Cleaning of system is recommended. Or there is case that you might need to reinstall your windows if nothing helps.

Updated bios problem on a780gm-a


I think you had a bad flash!

So re-download a new bios file from there web site and try again, with these instructions....

Updating the BIOS
You can download and install updated BIOS for this motherboard from the
manufacturer’s Web site. New BIOS provides support for new peripherals, improvements
in performance, or fixes for known bugs. Install new BIOS as follows:

1 If your motherboard has a BIOS protection jumper, change the setting to
allow BIOS flashing.

2 If your motherboard has an item called Firmware Write Protect in Advanced
BIOS features, disable it. (Firmware Write Protect prevents
BIOS from being overwritten.)

3 Create a bootable system disk. (Refer to Windows online help for
information on creating a bootable system disk.)

4 Download the Flash Utility and new BIOS file from the manufacturer’s
Web site. Copy these files to the system diskette you created in Step 3.

5 Turn off your computer and insert the system diskette in your computer’s
diskette drive. (You might need to run the Setup Utility and change the
boot priority items on the Advanced BIOS Features Setup page, to
force your computer to boot from the floppy diskette drive first.)

6 At the A:\ prompt, type the Flash Utility program name and the file name
of the new bios and then press <Enter>. Example: AMINF340.EXE
040706.ROM

7 When the installation is complete, remove the floppy diskette from the
diskette drive and restart your computer. If your motherboard has a
Flash BIOS jumper, reset the jumper to protect the newly installed BIOS
from being overwritten. The computer will restart automatically.

Hope This helps

Have a nice day!

Gateway lcd monitor


First, narrow down the problem to either the monitor, or to the computer itself. Either try the monitor on a spare or friend's computer, or try a known working monitor on your computer. I'd guess your computer is where the issue is at- it isn't booting the Operating System (MS XP or whatever O/S is present on the hard disk. if the computer is the issue, try booting from the CD which came with the computer, (assuming you have that CD). Or, you could see if some computer tech savvy person has a bootable floppy diskette. Basically a "no-boot" problem, can point to a number of problems: hardware issue (bad hard drive etc.), or an operating system problem.
