Question about Compaq CQ60-215DX Notebook

1 Answer

My Compaq Presario CQ60-215 DX will not boot up. Every time I try to boot up, all I hear is faint beeping sound from the computer and the same machinery going over and over again when it should only be going once and then to the login screen. The screen doesn't even turn on.

This makes me believe that your laptop has a memory problem. I suggest you to power off your laptop and eject the battery. Unscrew the screws that hold the memory cover. Discharge yourself touching a water pipe (no joke, this is to remove any static electricity from yourself that could destroy the memory). Eject the memory module(s) and reinsert them back. Take a look at this photo, it might help you:

If the problem disapear after that well done. If not you have to replace the memory module(s) with new ones.
More details about memory modules for your laptop you can finh at this official link.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Compaq presario v6101uswont boot not even start up screen


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.


Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

Disconnect the drive and try to boot to the BIOS (usually with F1, F2 or Delete key). If that doesn't work, try removing all cards from the computer (except a video card if the video port is not on the motherboard). If you can boot this way, try inserting back any removed cards to see what hangs it. Do you hear any beeps when the computer is booting (beep codes)?

That means you have a bad ram memory. some times with just take them out from the slot and put them back in will fix that kind of problem. however if you have a bad memory you will need to buy them.

you ram memory should be located at back of your laptop. you will need a screw driver to open it. is really easy to do it.

hope this help

Hello,

First try to unplug the laptop, then you open it up with a screwdriver, after doing that, remove the hard disk and the RAM and reinstall it back in, then reassemble the laptop back together to see if it will work.

If it does not work, then try to check if the module is still intact, then you insert an operating systems disc into the DVD tray to see if it will run a new window, if it does, then it means the operating system wiped out and need to be reinstalled.

Inserting the disc will solve the problem as the system will begin to run the operating system.

Take care and good luck

Booting Problem


The first question is, are you attempting to boot from your CD ROM and if so why? I need to understand more about what is happening before I attempt to answer your problem. Are you attempting to fix a problem or re-install your operating system? Do you always boot from a CD and if so, why not the hard drive? Is the same operating system installed on both your laptop and your desktop?
