Choose start windows normally
safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt
and ect



When I pick any of them the same thing happens... the windows xp screen pops up and then it restarts and follows the same cycle!
PS I DONT HAVE ANYTHING IMPORTANT ON MY LAPTOP SO WIPING OUT EVERYTHING IS AN OPTION

Hey its this problem again.
umm the f11 system recovery didnt work because it wont let me get into it , as soon as i hit f11 nothing happens f10 works it gets me into this other thing but no system recovery

Don't panic, the situation is not too bad, as the laptop's hardware is still all ok.
The Ghost software probably did not work because you did not make a complete bootable ghost CD from Windows when computer was working, or you did not do the ghosting procedure properly, or finally the ghost cd is corrupted.
if F11 does not work, it means that the recovery partition on hard disk had probably been corrupted by the virus.
Check if your laptop is covered by some insurance or extended guaranty to cover expenses for system reinstall.
Best way to proceed is asking a copy of restore cd fro your model from HP.
Contact them and ask how to obtain a copy of CD in your region, In UK they charge you £25 or so to send you the disk.
If for some reason you cannot get the restore cd, you will have to re-install system from a generic windows cd, possibly the same Windows version to validate the licence on Windows sticker at the bottom of your laptop (eg. Vista Home, XP home edition, XP professional etc.).
If you have to use a generic Windows disk you will need to download all drivers from HP. and install them after installing Windows.
Also a good choice can be locating a computer repair shop in your area and having the system re-install done using the licence number printed on the sticker at the bottom of your laptop. This job usually is not too expensive, in London, where I work, we charge £45 to do system restore.
Good luck.

Compaq Presario C769US PC Laptop heats up.


Right under that area of the keyboard there is a heat sink. If you look in the bottom of your laptop, in that area you will see a vent (and another towards the upper area of the bottom of the laptop). These vents are to keep the internal devices cool.

You can buy a laptop cooler online or in the store

Restore the PC to original condition with the HP Recovery Manager Follow the steps below to use HP Recovery Manager to return your notebook to its baseline factory condition, then allow the PC to run all the setup programs.
  1. Press the power button to turn on the PC, and press F11 on the keyboard immediately while the computer is starting up. The HP Backup and Recovery Manager window will appear.
  2. Click Advanced options , select the System recovery option, and then click Next .
  3. If the Recovery Manager can access the hard drive it displays a prompt to backup up user files before continuing the recovery. You may either backup your files, or skip the backup and recover the operating system.
  4. If the Recovery Manager cannot access the hard drive to fix the system errors, use the set of Recovery disks that you created to recover the hard drive to its original condition.
After the hard drive is returned to its original condition, restart the PC and allow the PC to run all the setup programs. if thias does not work then you should return it to supplier
