I have a Presario laptop windows vista home. I opened an e mail I thought was from my daughter; clicked on a link and to make a long story short after clearing windows ok and run, my screen went blank with a cursor blinking in upper left corner. Tried rebooting in safe mode and will not allow. Just ran Primary Hard Disk self test in Bios setup utility and got a test status #2- 07 Fail.. Help!!!

    You mean a blank CD? What is a Windows CD? BTW I lost my recovery disk and I ordered another one today..

  • zinn21 Oct 15, 2010

    Are you talking a recovery CD?? What specifically is it? You already mentioned a Recovery CD. Can you be more specific. Is it a CD you can buy at a store? did it come with the laptop?

Hi. Windows operting system might have gone bad that is why you are getting the problem. Restart the computer then keep on tapping F12 the moment you press the power button. It will prompt you for boot menu. select your harddrive then press enter. If computer will not boot up to windows once your press that then you need to restore the computer back to original factory state using the recovery disk.

All the best!

As you may be aware Vista has not been a very reliable sytem. The opening of the email link may be just a concidence.

Your hard drive has got corrupted.

Try to boot with a Windows CD to a point where you can select the Repair hard drive option.

If the repair fails you will have to go the Recovery CD that you would have got with the laptop or created it yourself when you acquired the laptop. Without that your options are limited.

Hope this helps.

    Sorry - by Windows CD I meant the CD with Microsoft Windows on it. Usually these have a boot track which can help you boot the laptop so that you can then attempt some repairs.

Forgot password on compaq presario 700 laptop cm2130


Are you talking about windows password or system password? On windows password that is easy. During startup press F8 and it will ask to boot into safe mode. Go to control panel and creat a new user and password and write it down, then delete the one you have trouble with.

If it is the system password, that another story you will have to take it to a shop where the will take it apart and do what is called a cmos reset password. It is located on the motherboard, very tricky to do and should not be done by unexperience person. Otherwise you can damage the main board.

Are certain restore disks interchangeable?


Unfortunately you cant use a vista restore disk for a XP operating system.

You could install vista on it and then use XP compatibility mode for whatever programs you want to run. Simply right click on the program and select the compatability tab..change to XP.

Password


When you get the logon screen tap control alt and delete together until you get a different sign in screen.  Remove her name and type in administrator without a password.  This should let you in.  Go to control panel, users and remove her password.
