Question about HP Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook

2 Answers

OK....really weird! When booted, this laptop sound plays fine for about 15 minutes and then nothing. Then reboot and it works fine for another 15-20 mins and out again. Have un-installed and reinstalled all drivers from HP and updated BIOS. Thought the card might be heating up but a immediate reboot gets it working, Finally, did a complete reinstall of windows XP Pro and still same problem. I'm pretty computer savvy and I gotta tell ya, I'm stumped. It's a;most like the sound card is being put to sleep because it takes 20 min almost exactly to go back out. Any ideas?

If it's just started doing this and didn't do this when you go it, it's a hardware problem. Try removing your keyboard and so forth (find a manual online if you don't know how) and cleaning out the inside, as it could be dust and such inside causing overheating or a short. If it's new, you should have a warranty to get it replaced.

This may be a heat problem, check the CPU fan and heat sink. Remove dust etc.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.

Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

I have a GE Spacemaker XL from 1998. It was working fine yesterday but today the display window shows all asterisks. I have unplugged it for several minutes in an effort to reboot it. It asks for a...

Wow! sounds really weird. Possibly Microprocessor on Main Timer board. No way to really diagnose other than substituting or replacing the main board. Unfortunately a bit pricey. Nothing else i can think of that would actually cause asterisks in the display. I really do not like to refer them, but may need to call GE since it is one of their units. Maybe they could give you some guidance. Mostly, over the phone, they just insist on sending someone out. So they can bill you more.

Hello, It looks like a dead hard drive... To check your hard drive and see if you can repair it yourself, reboot your computer press simultaneously the "cmd" and "s" keys at startup if you see a black screen with white text, type: fsck -f and hit enter this does a "file system check", when finnished, type "reboot" and press enter. If nothing better happens, you'll certainly have to brinng it to an Apple Authorized Center Best regards

HELP--- problem with the hd booting and pulling my hair out !!!!!!1

Sounds like you have a boot up password enabled and the only way to disable something like that is to remove the cmos battery from the computer. You could download the service manual from the ibm support website which would tell you how to remove that. After you remove it, wait 15 seconds and replace it. If you're still in warranty i would call up ibm and ask them if they have a software method or a master code to reset that.
