By enforcing the option to return BACK TO THE LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION you have nothing to lose. Respond if you have already selected that option with no success?

Why do bio page appear when turning machine on have to hit f2 to continue


It could be that the small coin-shaped battery on the motherboard is getting "old", and won't hold a charge.
Thus, all the BIOS settings are *NOT* being "saved" when your computer is powered-off.

Replace the battery.

Hi:
Your only choice to get recovery discs now is to order them thru the HP/compaq website. They are not too expensive, and it is about the only ;thing you can do since someone already used your option on the display computer you bought.

Power on and immediately (3-9 sec) off on a compaq 6400 laptop running windows xp. LED shows as charging when plugged in. Same problem on battery power alone


Try to remove the battery and hook up to the powersupply directly without the battery. If it goes on well plugin your battery again and try once again. If problem persists check your RAM

Can't get into the bios for a presario 4716


This is what the Compaq site had to say about the BIOS utility for your system (Source: Compaq): • • • •You may have difficulty accessing the BIOS Setup utility screen, because you must press a specific key(usually F1) very quickly before the Windows screen appears. If you do not enter the BIOS Setup screen on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful.

To open the BIOS Setup screen:
1. Turn off the PC and wait about 5 seconds.
2. Turn on the PC.
3. When the first screen appears, press the F1 key on the keyboard. (You can press the key more than once.) The BIOS Setup Utility Main menu appears.
NOTE: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.
4. Use the keyboard to navigate through the menus.
You may need to remove the battery and then back in.

Frozen during boot-up, keyboard still works


Sounds like the PC is running into a hardware failure and the Compaq splash screen is probably hiding some additional information. It?s been a long time since I've owned a Compaq, however, what you need to do first is eliminate the Compaq screen to show us whatever boot details it may be hiding. I seem to recall on my old Compaq (and most Dells) I had to disable the Compaq screen in the BIOS settings. Hitting the F10 key as soon as the Compaq screen appears I believe will get you into the BIOS program, however, be warned if you change anything in there by accident you will be causing yourself a world of trouble. After you get into there you want to look for the Boot selection of the menu. In there somewhere will be a setting referring to something similar to ?reveal boot details? or hide splash or Compaq screen?. If it isn?t obvious let me know, I?ll have access to an older Compaq with a similar BIOS and can give you more details. If you are able to disable the splash screen reboot the PC and watch for errors. Based on the age of the machine and past history I suspect you?ll find a boot disk or read error.
