Question about Computers & Internet

Presario 700 There was no indication of heat or anything. It looked innocent. But how do I completely reinstall Vista and everything if I can't log into my computer. It won't get passed the the indicator that there is a problem. I already tried to restore it from some point, but it didn't work. And there was only one option (image) available. I hope you can help me any further, Thanks, Kris You mean, it froze up in the middle of doing stuff with no indication of heat having caused the problem? It sounds like you get to completely reinstall Vista and the update, if it can't cope; or of course you could restore from an image and start the update again. Your data should be fine, but you probably have a backup anyhow; if not, just install, but on a new hard drive so you can copy the data and drivers from the old HD (by mounting that in an external USB thing, for example.)

This one is 2 months old now! Is there a -bios- password that's not blank that won't let you boot the OS? Surely you learned to just clear the BIOS with the jumper on the mobo (and turning power thoroughly off for 20 seconds before moving the jumper back, then powering up?)

I installed XP on a Vista installed PC on a dual boot but when booting in XP I am unable to access the Internet..I need to know if I need to install any drivers


you are going to need to log into the vista side and download the xp drivers for your network card. save it in a place accessible by xp. not anywhere in a user folder...save to c:\network driver even though you are not logged into vista the user permissions will prevent you from accessing anything inside a user or system folder.

I reinstalled windows xp now i cannot hook up to


The yellow ? indicate the various device drivers that was not installed, which would include the LAN card and or wireless card. That is why you are not connecting to the Internet.
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: -

Compaq presario system recovery


Hi,

When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears. The progress indicator that first appears does not indicate that a recovery is taking place. The progress indicator represents the time before the recovery process is started.

When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.

To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.



CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.


NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over an hour, depending on the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (Like My Documents and the Desktop.

Note:Dont foregt to backup your important files/documents.
Hope this helps !
Thanks..

I had this problem also, I found that running windows update and getting vista SP2 solved my problem. If this doesn't work, after you login in and you get the welcome screen with the spinning circle hit ctrl+alt+del and log off, then re-type your password and it should work, but you may have to do this a few times. I hope this helps! put a comment down if you need more help!

Sound does not work, restore points are completly gone


dear friend.
the red X appears on the sonud icon in vista when the driver you have installed is incompatible withh the hardware.

try these steps
*check your speakers
if it fails
then


*go to device manager
*from the sound and video uninstall sound devices
*restart your pc
*the drivers should be detected by now

*if the above steps fail
*after uninstalling the sound devices
*click on search for hardware changes
*then proceeed with automatic install(make sure you are connected to internet)
note: the automatic driver installaion in vista is a bit slow so be patient.

For some reason my personal computer at home stopped running windows vista and asks if I want to start the operating system in safe mode or normal mode.  When either option is chosen I get a blue screen...


Everything I have researched states that your problem is with the installation of SP1 for Vista. Unfortunately the remedy is a reinstall of the operating system.
