My compaq Presario laptop

The computer is less than a year old and for some reason will not open to windows. I get an error message that states window has failed and sugguest that a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. This is incorrect because I have not installed a new software of hardware. If further states that files have been damaged or configured incorrectly. It has a button to lauch startup repair but when selected it does not work. Can you give me an idea what should I do?

HP laptop appear error message during the booting such as wireless 701, coms, keyboard LED blink, shutdown etc. you may try to update newly bios version first. it could be fix:
1) download new version bios at HP support,
2) run its for windows version at laptop windows if laptop booting in windows well
3) run its DOS version at winpe which boot at DVD if laptop could not come in windows itself.
if it is not fix, it is could be SB bridge issue, at most AMD SB+NB bridge.

Before to start laptop appair the following error: 0270 real time clock error. save to disk file not found save to disk feature is disabled run phdisk for information.FILE:create new. ...


compaq is HP so best is to ask them, there, now here.
RTC error mean , the RTC coin cell is dead.
all PCs this old are dead battery ,
RTC= real time clock chip says IM DEAD, but is battery dead ,..

remove the coin cell, and put in a new one.
end story.
then set time .
best is to set time in BIOS setup. 1st.

this Compaq is 18 years old now. or 126 dog years.
id , push it off a cliff on the 4th July with fireworks. and all.
let me guess its XP the VIRUS magnet.
some this old are windows 98
a hopeless case there, no? no support, no books and no updates.
the books at HP are long gone
so now all books are , sold by horders. $$$
it can be costly and dangerous to deal with folks like that.

the book you lost , , the answer is on page 18
seen here
see coin, remove it and put in new one. end story.

Most Compaq computers come with a ONE-YEAR WARRANTY.
So, contact Compaq, since your computer is less than one year old, and get them to trouble-shoot the problem, and/or repair/replace the computer, by exercising your warranty.

I have HTTP Error 403 how can i fix it


By far the most common reason for this error is that directory browsing is forbidden for the Web site. Most Web sites want you to navigate using the URLs in the Web pages for that site. They do not often allow you to browse the file directory structure of the site

Well XYZ if you had XP already on your computer and it worked, then there is no reason to go back to Windows Me 2000, but you do need to get ahold of the person who installed the XP version and have him reinstall it. You will have to Activate that one also within 30 days or it will do the same thing again. Or if you have someone with Win 2000 that will have to be reinstalled too. Regardless of which windows you decide on it has to be installed fresh. As for the Error Message windows cannot validate your version of windows is what they are telling you. I had that problem for so long I finally got tired of the **** and validating over the phone I finally got my XP that doesn't need validating. I do however have the validation code for all windows, send me your e-mail address and I will mail it to you. You will probably have to accept it before it will allow you to get it. After I send you the code I will remove your e-mail address for I have no need for it, Right? The code won't work for the windows alreadry on your computer, you need a fresh copy to install for the code to work. Let me know who you are when you write me so I don't delete your message. something like it's me, XYZ.
Good Luck

System file is "missing or corrupt"


You MUST use the installation bootup disk to install windows it is the only way........... NOT THE RECOVERY DISK this is a MUST. Allow it to go through the motion of installing Windows until it cannot go any further. Then press the "R" key for the console. When in the DOS screen TYPE ... chkdsk /p Windows will repair itself and then you will recover all your data it should be back to normal.
