I have a Compaq 1275 with the same problem. You can actually turn it off without removing the battery by holding the on/off button for more than 4 seconds. This actually works for any computers (it is like a reset button). Hope it helps.

I got a computer at a yard sale its old but the man who sold it too me didn't tell me it had password and username


if it is a HP computer, and many others, you can turn on the computer and immediately start tapping the F11 key,(before the main screen pops up) - then follow the prompts and allow plenty of time - this takes awhile. this puts the computer back to the original Factory Settings like out of the box. this is a full system Recovery I had a friend with same issue, bought really nice computer but the guy didn't know the password (so he probably bought it the same way!) she did the F11 and fixed the problem

My Emachine laptop won't recongize my Lexmark


Did you make sure the printer was turned on when you plugged it in? If the power is not turned on, the computer will not find the printer. If you had it on, then reboot your laptop and press whatever key allows you to go into system setup. Once there, check the various areas until you find where it asks if you have a Plug and Play operating system. If it says "NO", change it to "YES".

If you've done all these, then try installing the software first, until it tells you to plug in the USB cable. If you've followed all these instructions and still cannot get the printer recognized by your computer, chances are the printer is bad - which would explain it being sold at a yard sale.

I would like to re-boot my comuter.


Restart your system and hold down F11. You'll restore to factory settings. As if you just bought it new.

I recently bought a Compaq Wireless Desktop w/Optical Mouse (Gry/Sil) at a yard sale and did not recieve the instalition cd where can i download the program at online so i can use it on my computer


As long as you have the wireless reciever and the mouse, and a fresh pair of batteries theres no reason why it should not work. Its simply a plug and play device.

In fact, I wouldnt be surprised at all if Logitech manufactures their mice for Compaq and sticks the Compaq name on it instead.

Compaq presario 6024 will not start up in windows it gets to the ----- and then shuts down and starts again the same thing over and over


Turn your computer off. Turn your computer on. Hold down on the F8 and select safe mode while the computer is booting. Once your in safe mode and the windows desktop appears, restart your computer again and see if that corrected the problem.

If you don't get into windows via f8, it should tell you on the screen what the problem is. Which usually means reinstalling Windows.
