Question about Compaq PC Desktops

Internet Explorer lock-up

Compaq Presario 6265AA S/N 3D2ALF2LS059 crashed. Restored hard drive factory fresh with disk that came with machine. Internet explorer loads up but locks down right away. Sometimes I get no page and sometimes I get partial page downloaded and it locks up. Downloaded fire fox of another computer and installed it and the internet runs fine. I have crashed it before and never had a problem restoring the hard drive. I have even deleted IE 6.0, downloaded the program from another computer and installed it and it still does the same thing.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

Desk top computer (Compaq Presario, with relatively new memory card) has slowed down, especially with getting conected to the internet (DSL). How do I "clean" it up?


You should try to Disk Clean up your hard drive, Defragment your Disk, Check your disk for any bad sectors and clear all cookies and temp files from your browser. Use either Ashampoo WinOptimizer, Advance Windows Care or Tune Up Utilities as an optimization software to optimize your system.

Compaq presario 2200 is very slow


If you open up Windows Explorer, right-click on 'My Computer' if you are running XP or 'Computer' if you are running Vista and select Properties from the context menu, you will be presented with a window that displays information about the installed processor and clock speed as well as the amount of memory installed in the computer.

Again in Windows Explorer, if you right-click on Local Disk (C:) and select Properties, you will be presented with a window that give you information about the amount of used space, free space and total space on the hard disk.

I have a Compaq Presario, model #: SR2150NX W/120GB HD


You should be able to add a SATA drive to that machine (IDE should also be available to you). The spec drive in your machine is a 120GB, you may get a decent increase in speed if you use a newer SATA hard drive with a fresh install of Windows on it and simply put the existing drive as the slave or drive 2.

Lost factory disks for my Compaq Persario sr1103wm know were I could get a new one?


Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F10 (XP) or F11 (Vista) until a Recovery window opens.

Restore compaq presario sr1403wm to factory setting


I am sorry to say but there is no suggestion we can give on this topic. The problem with your computer is that the operating system you were using has crashed. You need to install a fresh copy of operating system on your PC.

Crashed computer. \WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM is corrupt or missing. We dont have the original setup cd-rom. All we have is a windows xp disk for a different computer. Is there anyway this can work? I...


you have a registry problem! that could be result of a hardware problem.. there is a good article of things you can try, it's usually suggested for you use the same xp cd that you use to install the os, otherwise is risky business using a different cd... you may want to find a cd that has the same service pack you have before starting... if you can't get that cd, read my suggestiong below

http://www.help2go.com/Tutorials/Windows/C:%5Cwindows%5Csystem32%5Cconfig%5Csystem_missing_or_corrupt.html

I strongly suggest the following:
first of all if possible, take your hard drive out, using and enclosure or another machine try to back up your data so it things go wrong or it's just taking too much time, you can just wipe out the hard drive and start fresh with a clean install, you may find it this to be the easiest and fastest way... back up your data regardless then start troubleshooting.

Restoring Files


Is the first of your backup disks a boot-disk?

Often full system backups are restored from a bootable set of disks. There should be a message during startup to press something like F8 to change boot device. You could try using this to see if disk one of your backup is a boot disk & will allow you to restore your files.
