Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Initially, on powerup, enter the CMOS/BIOS configuration page and manually detect the hard disk. If it could be detected, then most likely for some reason the partition was deleted and you have to re-partition/format/install. If it could not be detected, then a replacement would be required.
In some instances, it could be that the files were so messed up/corrupted and therefore would require re-partition/format/install.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello, doing a "last known good
configuration" Works most of the time. Here is how to do it:
1. Make sure your computer is powered down.
2. Turn your computer on and immediately
start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly until you see a black screen with white writing that gives you a list of boot
3. Use the down arrow on your keyboard to
select the Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced) option.
4. Press Enter on your keyboard
and cross your fingers.
