Beeping sound when starting


Usually when you first turn the power on ... it's usual to hear a couple of beeping sounds . And then, you may hear whirling/clicking sounds when your disk starts up (rotating) and your CD/DVD drive starts up, etc.. Then the monitor/screen lights up and starts to show the operating system (e.g. Windows) panel ... as it starts up.

If your system just beeps ... and beeps ... and beeps... and nothing else happens, the screen doesn't light up and show anything (for a few minutes), it likely the system is not starting up properly.

If you can clarify what actually happens, maybe I can offer more suggestions/information to help.

Reinstalling windows vista


Take a soft paper towel and make sure there are no fingerprints either on the top or bottom of the cd. Then put the cd back into the drive and restart the computer. Listen to the drive and see if its trying to load the cd. You should get a progress bar that comes up showing you that its trying to get into the windows setup.
If you can't hear anything from your drive then that means the drive is going bad and would need to be replaced. Also try another windows disc if you have another one just to see if the problem is the original disc. It could be that its not trying to go into the setup and its bypassing the cd and not going anywhere. Also go into your system BIOS and make sure the cd/dvd drive is the first drive in the boot list.

After inserting the cds,nothing happens bar a clicking sound,not the usual whir ,the cd icon shows on the screen but nothing happens


Does the drawer open and close, when you push the button.
If so, you are getting electrical power to the drive.
If not, check that power-cable is still connected to the back of the drive.

If you don't hear the drive "spin" the CD, something is wrong with the hardware -- either it's not detecting that a CD is in the tray, or the motor that spins the CD has died.

Either way, spend $40 and buy a replacement CD/DVD-writer.
Remove the old one, and take it to a computer-store,
so that they can match the power and data connectors on the old drive with the power and data connectors on the new drive.

Hint: if you take the whole computer to a small computer-store, they may remove/install the drive for a small fee, if you buy the new drive from them.

Only shows compaq on screen


I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.
