In the middle of doing a system recovery my compaq CQ50 froze up,I restarted my laptop and now it says no operating system found


CQ50-what? you left off the end number?
dont all COMPAQs do that, this old, sure. all do , those that dont are what we call Miracles of the Deity!
first do this with no battery, take out the huge battery that loves to short and overload all LT.
do so, ok , no cure there... if yes, BINGO>?
what's next.
well it not black screen , is it?, so screen works. Miracle 2.
the NO OS is NO LIE, it told you the truth but means
I cant FIND THE BOOT DRIVE< that is A FACT !
the HDD is dead or windows, dead, no OS STATED BY You. or....


or the coin cell is dead causing the boot device to be WRONG.
no PC this old has good coin cell., replace it.
if the BIOS pages how time and date wrong, COIN BAD.(RTC)
if the BIOS settings keep SCRAMBLING its BAD COIN TIME.
if the beep codes scream bad CMOS memory its COIN TIME.
the coin fails from 5 to 10 years, less if parked in the sun for 3y.

Battery slide wont open


Does it have a locking mechanism? The Latch/spring may be broken or jammed, push the latch over and hold use a tool, old credit card, to wedge at the crack where the battery meets the laptop, gently pry it open, while holding the latch open. OR remove the laptop's bottom cover. If you supply the Model of the Compag , I may can assist you further.

In 2001 i bought a compaq desktop computer model number 126459554a-6262 monitor serial number 3D211KK1123HY i am trying to find how much it would coast to replaced it it got damaged


http://www.google.com/#q=compaq+presario&hl=en&prmd=ivnsr&source=lnms&tbs=shop:1&ei=jF5kTYepIIe-tgePtrm5DA&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&cd=5&sqi=2&ved=0CCQQ_AUoBA&biw=1004&bih=583&bav=on.1,or.&fp=593e0cc39af96e6f

This is a google search for Compaq Presario. Mostly Laptops come up. Start from $300 to about 450..

Go to any computer store and look around.. Or shop online, Amazon.com, tigerdirect.com, frys.com Or follow any of the links from the search above.

In general you can buy a new computer for about 300 to 500 $ Will be much better than the 10 year old you have now.
EBay is a way to go, but that needs more care and knowledge.

My compaq notebook is overheating then switching off. It is only 10 months old.


the problem may be with ur fan unit or heat sink. which is not providing sufficient cooling. as ur PC is 10 months old it is under warranty. so better take it to nearest service centre or call customer service - 1800112267 (BSNL/MTNL lines within India), 30306363, 011 26388000
All the best

Network cable wire too large to fit laptop connection


If your laptop is too old probably does not have a network card built in. In that case you need a PCMCIA network card and PCMCIA slot available in your computer.

You can get one here:
