I recently purchased a 19"


Your computer graphics, whether onboard or graphics card does not support this resolution.

I think it is a driver problem, click here to download and install the latest drivers.

Fill in the details and select search then download and install.
You may need to purchase a more powerful graphics card.

We have a Compaq Presario PC and we are having a problem turning it on because the last time it was used, the error pattern showed up and we had to reboot it. After we shut it down we had to start it up...


When computer is booting up, tap your function key F8 then try Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) or Safe Mode. If still doesn't work, you have format your computer. But before to format your computer don't forget to save or back up your data or documents. Good Day

How do i remove my compaq presario 2200's hard drive?


The Compaq Presario line is one of the longest-running series of computers, originating in 1993 and remaining in production even after the purchase of Compaq by HP. Because of this, many Compaq Presario desktops have required that some of their parts be upgraded or replaced because of the wear that they have received over years of standard use. One of the more commonly replaced Presario desktop components is the hard drives, especially given how much hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif storage capacity has increased since the Compaq Presario line was introduced. Replacing a hard drive in a Compaq Presario desktop isn't difficult, and can usually be done in a matter of minutes even for users who aren't familiar with computer upgrades.
structions
  1. Step 1Remove the screws holding the left side panel of the computer on, then slide the panel back to remove it. Set both the panel and the screws aside so that you can put the panel back in place once the hard drive has been replaced.
  2. Step 2Unplug the ATA (wide, flat and usually gray) or SATA (thicker, thin and red) data cable and the power cable from the back of the hard drive that is currently in the Compaq Presario. Move the cables so that they will be out of the way, but make sure that they will still be easily accessible to you so that you can plug them into the new hard drive.

My Compaq desktop computer has just recently started rebooting itself. I just added some RAM but its fairly easy to do so I don't feel I messed anything up installing it... Ideas?


Yeah dude, I had the same problem with my DELL. If you install more ram, sometimes (even though it has the slots) the computer can't handle it. Did you try removing the ram you added? It may work. Other thing is that you may have loose cables from the power supply.

Memory Card Readers Wont Function


Unless it is under warranty your best/cheapest bet is to get an external USB card reader. I recently purchased an off-the-wall USB card reader from Radio Shack for $12.99. It serves its purpose and I can take it with me anywhere.

Hope this helps at least some. Good luck!
