1. Remove the battery.

2. Check the power supply connector to make sure that the two prongs at the end are on either side of the pin, as you may not have enough power to fire the machine.

Full format of compaq presario 2100


Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.

Compaq presario 2100 how to install a Wireless pci card


If there is no antenna then you'll have to buy the wire set via eBay, take apart the lcd, remove the top assembly of the laptop and then run them through the computer and put everything back. NOT FUN.

It's probably much easier and realistic to just purchase a usb wireless card.

Hope this info helps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure Check Cable on compaq presario 2100


A PXE-61 error message is most likely a faulty hard disk.
Try reseating the hard drive first and if you still get this error message again then you need to replace the hard disk.
To boot up with the CD you maybe able to press the F12 function key when you power up the laptop, this will bring up the a menu option to select an alternate boot device. If this option is not available then go into the BIOS configuration and change the bootup order and make the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second device. You can can it back later.

Argon PXE Boot Agent v2.01 2002 - PXE - E61


Your computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
* floppy-disk
* disk-drive
* CD-ROM
* USB memory-stick
* over a network, via PXE (Pre eXecution Environment)

If you have a network-cable connected to the Ethernet port on the computer, with the other end connected to a "boot-server", then the Operating System can be loaded over this network-connection.

But, if you get "media test failure" and "check cable", then the network-cable for PXE is either non-working or not-present.

Any disk-drive that shows "ZERO" blocks is very probably a DEAD disk-drive. Replace it.
