Compaq cq 60 615dx hard drive problems


We need more information about your problem to properly diagnose it. Boot up your PC, then press F1 when you reach the boot screen. Under "Boot Devices" you should have a hard drive listed. If not, your hard drive needs to be replaced. If you do see the hard drive listed, you need to reinstall an operating system.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Have a compaq cq60 turned it on and have a black screen with compac on it and it wont do anything else


It looks like your hard drive has failed, you could try booting with you rescue disk or any bootable disks which can be dowloaded for free

a) Ultimate boot disk for windows (Diagnotic software)

b) Ubuntu (Alternative operating system) Just "try ubuntu" don't install, well not at first.

Both will boot your computer with an operating system, you'll be able to check you HDD, you may also be able to retrieve data.

Usually it means your hard drive has crashed.
The PXE is your computer trying to connect to a network server (virtual hard drive).
Did you have any important files on the computer?

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot


Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.
