Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Computer Crashed I have a Compaq Presario C500 laptop and the running in system is Windows Vista. Today my computer stopped responding to anything and it the screen stayed frozen no matter what I tried for at least 10-15 minutes. I then decided to shut it off manually by pressing the power button. I then pressed it again to turn my computer on. This exact thing has happened a few times before with my computer where it stops working and then I restart it. This time however, when it turned back on it had erased everything on my computer. All of my pictures, music, documents, basically all of my data is gone. Even my desktop was different. It's like a have a brand new computer. Is there any way that I can recover all of my data? Thank your for your help

I need the driver 802.11b/g wireless


I'm assuming this card comes built it with the Compaq Presario C500 notebook. In that case, a possible driver for this card could be:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3318986&prodNameId=3413015&swEnvOID=2093&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ob-52447-1 (Windows Vista/7)
Due to lack of information, or the age of the card itself, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of this driver

Installing windows vista on compaq presario 750 computer stops responding during installation now can't boot or startup


Vista installations inbult drive format tool is not so good, and causes errors, so i recomment u format the drive with some linux live cd's or some other bootup type partition tools. Then do a clean install. The problem should be solved if u hav min system requirements for vista.

Administrators password


if you have another user account with administrator access you can either remove the password i the user account field or you can try accessing the files of that particular user account and transfer it and just erase the user account and create a new one. vista does not have any backdoor to access using the disk unlike xp

Compaq presario 2100 fan does not work...


Ok, first off i have a feeling that reinstalling xp had nothing to do with your fan. Locate the fan vents on the side or back of your notebook. Buy a can of compressed air and spray out the vents. My guess is you have plenty of dust. After that boot the computer and enter the bios menu. Look for where it displays your temperature. Leave it running like this overnight. If its still on, check the temperature. If its above 70 C you have a bad fan, the same holds true if it doesn't last the night.
