Sounds like you have a bios issue. The ROMPaq is probably an updated BIOS and flash utility.

If you have the model number handy, and another computer with a floppy drive, hp.com has all the ROMPaqs for download.

PC will not boot up. Almost did once but screen went black. Reboot doesn't help. No green light on monitor and PC makes a long slow beep over and over. I have recovery discs but when put it nothing...


Based on your description of your problem, my educated guess is that you have a problem with the system board or motherboard. Checking Compaq support site, it says that beeps are generally heard when a hardware device is not connected properly or has failed.

First thing to try is disconnect the keybaord and mouse and try to start the computer again. What we are trying to do is find out which hardware device might be involved. So start with the keyboard an mouse. If the computer still does not start, remove any periferal drives, like floppy or cd drives.

There are several beep codes, below are a few examples listed:

Beep codes common to HP and Compaq Desktop PCs The following beep codes are common to many HP and Compaq desktop computers. Use these codes first before referring to the other code lists. NOTE: Not all codes are shown. Beeps Description 1 short beep and 1 long beep Memory problem 2 short beeps and 1 long beep (repeats 5 times) Unable to initialize video or video card required but not installed 3 short beeps and 1 long beep CPU configuration error or CPU type is not compatible The following beep codes are common to many HP and Compaq desktop computers that can occur while restoring, flashing or updating the BIOS : Beeps Description 1 short beep Legacy floppy drive or CD/DVD drive not detected 2 short beeps Floppy diskette or compact disc not detected 3 short beeps Unable to start flashing (such as when missing a utility or BIOS image) 4 short beeps Flashing failed (checksum error, corrupted image, etc.) 5 short beeps BIOS recovery successful Try working on this solution and see if you can get the computer to start. Below is a link to a troubleshooting page from Compaq for your computer. This can be a good reference as well.

Give a try to update BIOS. Click here and follow the intrsuction

  1. Obtain a formatted 1.44-MB diskette and place it in your A: drive.
  2. Download the SoftPaq to a directory on your hard drive. The file that is downloaded is an executable with a filename based on the SoftPaq Number above.
  3. From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to build the ROMPaq diskette.
  4. Place the newly created diskette in the A: drive of the computer to be upgraded or restored and cycle system power to boot from the ROMPaq diskette.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to select the Compaq System ROM and flash the firmware. WARNING: DO NOT TURN OFF POWER OR ATTEMPT TO REBOOT THE COMPUTER DURING THE UPGRADE PROCESS!!!

My pc refuse booting keep telling me to insert a rompaq diskette and then recycle the pc.at first the LED shows a red light then the warning apeared


The harsh truth. I have owned about 6 of the Compaq Deskpro EN PC's and not one has lasted more than 3 months with out completely blowing up. Your best option is to take it for a drive to the dump and ditch the machine then buy a decent computer. I mean no offence.
They really arent worth your time in trying to fix, you will fix one problem and it will front with another.

Pls, after flashing my compaq nx 6320 laptop, the screen cant come on. its beeps once and thats all.


Hi,

1 beep usually indicates that the System, is ok and past The Bios Tests. i,d suggest that you may have flashed the incorrect bios. or it has not updated thoroughly. or corrupt.
there a couple of possible solutions, one is to reflash with the original bios. secondly maybe to obtain the vga/graphics chip drivers onto a cd, and boot the laptop up with the disk in the drive.
A system restore Disk, may be the Only Other option.

Misplaced rompaq diskette


You probably need to change the boot order in the bios to make the computer boot from the cd rom before any local hard drives.

F2 is usually used to access the BIOS, you have to press it immeadiately upon seeing the first screen, which usually displays the name of the manufacturer, and from there you have to find the section to change the boot order.

H P Compaq wont boot


Your BIOS should have got Corrupted and it is asking you for the BIOS file. You may have to flash your bios. Go to the Manufacturers site and read the instruction for flashing your bios or upgrading your bios.
