This issue could be dude to a number of things, Probably the best thing to do would be to either start in safe mode, and see if there is an application that is causing the error, Or reinstalling the operating system from the windows CD.

Another small window will come up on the left. In the wording at the top of the window tells you where the file will download to. You may wish to write it down.
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

When you see the file name (sp33313) DOUBLE-click right on it
The Installation Wizard will appear. At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to Restart your computer, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Restart your computer.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart )

Hp compaq 6720 laptop, wont charge battery, bought new battery have same problem. have tried several different chargers and they are all working, but not charging battery


If the notebook does not charge even after replacing it with new battery and checking with several chargers then it is laptop power jack issue.
You may need to replace it. However to confirm the issue is with power jack just remove the battery and try to power on the notebook only with AC adapter. If it does not then it is the power jack which is allowing the ac power to be charged.

If your notebook is in warranty then you can ship it to HP and if it is out of warranty then check the link below, you can purchase the power jack of the laptop from here.

I have a laptop which is hp widows vista,compaq 6720s. my little boy went on it and the screen side is has crack and doesn't work. what should i do HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO FIX IT


The replacement panels for the Compaq 6720s range between $85.00 USD and $110.00 USD depending on where you order them from. The replacement is a relatively easy procedure, but I don't recommend it for a first-time novice do-it-yourselfer.
Here are links to some places where you can order the display panel:
http://www.blisscomputers.net/hp-compaq-6720s-laptop-lcd-screen-15-4-wxga-glossy-ccfl.aspx
http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=HP%20COMPAQ%206720S&brand=HP-Compaq
http://www.r3electronics.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1&page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=1147&category_id=38
Now the good news is you can still use your laptop if you have an external monitor. You can use the appropriate "Fn" key combination to switch your display output to the external device. I believe for the Compaq 6720 is the "Fn" key & the "F4" key. Connect the external monitor then power on your machine, Press the Fn and F4 key simultaneously until you get the display showing on the external device.
One more thing, you will need to go set the laptop to not do anything when the lid is closed. You can do this via Start -> Control Panel -> Power Settings. Change the custom power settings for both "A/C" Power and "Battery Power" to "do nothing" when the lid is closed. By doing so, you can close the laptop lid without shutting off the computer. Of course you will need to add an external mouse and keyboard to continue using the computer, but by following these instructions, you can basically use the laptop, even with a damaged screen, pretty much the same way you would use a desktop. The portability is lost, but the function is retained until you can have a new display panel installed.
Hope this helps FixYa! Please take some time to leave some feedback and a testimonial if you found this information helpful.

My Compaq laptop will not boot up. It gets only


Tturn on your computer, then, before the windows boot screen appears, press the F8 key, this should bring up the start options , if it does not, turn off , turn back on and try again.
On the start options use the up/down arrows on keyboard to select "last known good configuration", press the enter key. Windows should start as normal if it does not do the process again but instead select "safemode" .
