Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Compaq F755LA laptop . I'm trying to format it. I'm attempting to boot from the dvd, but it won't boot. DVD drive is set first as boot options in the BIOS and the Windows dvd is in the drive. BIOS has been updated to the latest version (F.09), but it still won't boot from the drive. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi horashadow, yes I have a 'suggestion'!
"Go back the the "Boot Priority Menu,"
and make 'either the "HDD, Optical Drive or SATA Drive,"
the first {Boot Option}. The Boot.ini file, Master Boot Record file, or the Boot NTLDR file,
will more than likely be in one of these [Devices].
"Give it a try. "I hope it works out for you.!

You may need to pull the hard drive and connect to another computer as a external device to format the hardware, but if you can access bios, reset to factory defaults before pulling the hard drive and try again.

How can i format my computer


insert a CD/DVD copy of windows into your disk drive, then just follow the online screen guide.
You must first set your bios settings, the first boot should be the CD/DVD rom drive then your hard disk. Re-start your PC and press any key once it show during command prompt display.
Hope it helps..

Hp presario f700/f750us, cd/dvd player, won't boot from start up but is listed first in boot order, not recognized by windows either, won't read, write or play. tray opens and light blinks. tom...


Check the jumper settings in the back of the drive, by the power cable. Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to SLAVE, with your primary harddrive as MASTER. Check BIOS settings, specifically your boot order, choose which drive you want to load first (usually HD 0), save and exit.
That's just the basics, though.
Another possibility is that you might just have a paperweight ;)
If so, try another drive.
Hope that helps

Won't boot, dvd drive only shows yellow light on


After a Format EVERYTHING is GONE... It is a blank thing. It only know to boot from an install disc. So you must now put a Windows DVD or some sort of Boot setup Disc in, and if the Windows disc, you should perform a re-install of the Operating System. As until that is done you cannot use the PC, as a PC. try that and get back to me.

Windows unable to complete format.


How did you format the computer, inside windows or outside?
Try this change the boot sequence from the BIOS instead of booting first to HD make your optical drive as first boot. After changing the boos sequence insert the windows vista disk to the drive then restart the computer. When it boots it will ask you to press any key to boot to CD/DVD. Keep tapping on space bar. If you notice it will say windows copying files. When copying files completed we isolated the problem dvd rom is fine and the vista installer is fine as well.
If the problem only started in or during attempting to format you HDD might causes the problem.

I cant boot from the CD/DVD drive.


Watch on the bottom of the screen when the PC is re-booting for a "Boot from CD" message, it may go by quickly, and hit any key to boot from the CD.

Bootmgr error


Hi,
theres several stages involving formating a disk.
this error however, appears to be discribing a boot-manager program.
Try booting with Windows in the actually DVD Drive.
If this does,nt work, re-format the hard-drive. or obtain a setup disk from your computers manufacturer.
i.e Compaq.
