It sounds like the motherboard is messed up. if it ever lets you enter windows fully, then do a bios update and driver download for you chipset. if it NEVER lets you enter, take it to someone who can hook it up to their machine to see if it's the motherboard or an incompatibe device.

Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

On the bottom, it shows <esc=boot menu> <f1=setup> <f10=system recovery> but it doesn't respond to anything or move from this screen


Check that your keyboard is connected, and is working properly.
Try your keyboard on a different computer.
Try a different keyboard on your computer.

The 'ESC' key should always work.
The 'F1' key should always work.
If your disk-drive is *NOT* "dead", then the 'F10' key should work.

If neither 'ESC' nor 'F1' work, you have a serious problem with the motherboard.

My desktop compaq presario s4300nx starts up , i can accses set up with f1 but cant start recovery with F10 however the F10 button works in setup, no good to me, ...i have recovery disks the pc just...


you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

System wont boot


Disconnect all devices except keyboard and mouse and master cd or DVD. unplug then hit power button. Plug back in. Hit power and hopefully you get to BIOS. If you do make sure you save the BIOS before you leave to start OS. Keep me informed and I'll keep checking your listing to see if its working or not.

PRESARIO 700 ERROR ON BOOT Hello! Every time when I switch on my presario 700, on the screen show: ERROR PCI on motherboard, device 09, F1(boot) and F10 (setup). OS is XP pro. What is wrong?


If you know how to set up the bios hit f1, if not hit f10, it will boot up and you will need to reset the time and date as they will be wrong. The PCI error refers to a PCI slot, which for some reason isn't functioning properlly. If you run the disk with your motherboard settings that may have come with your motherboard it may just be a driver. If you hit f1 then you will be in the Bios screen. There the keyboard is used to navigate. The mouse won't work, Arrow keys for up down and side to side, and the escape key to get out of a menu or menu item, and enter to select an item. So on the first screen, you will need to adjust the date, time, and year. each time you do this you must hit enter to proceed to the next item. once you get all of the settings right hit f 10, and enter to reboot. So I gave you both ways. If you still have the problem, check the cards that are in your motherboard, there may be a loose one, also try to pop out the battery inside the case, not the laptop battery, if it continues to happen, you may have to pop that little battery that controls the settings for startup, it will reset your saved motherboard startup settings, and once in a while the battery may be bad, which can also cause the kind of problem you describe.

Press (F1) to resume, (F10) to setup


I need a bit more info to try to give you an accurate solution

Does the screen change after you press "F1" ?

Do you have access to an external keyboard, if so try plugging that in while the computer is off and then using that to press "F1"
