Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

2 Answers

After booting windows XP today, windows will load and then after a few minutes go to a blank screen. Sometimes the screen is black, sometimes white, red, grey, pink, various colors. I did a system restore to a previous date and am still experiencing the same problem. I don't know if this is a virus or a hardware problem.

When you boot the system before the loading screen tap on the F8 key a bunch till you get a menu.. try booting in safe mode and see if that helps. If you can run in safe mode that means either you video driver/card is malfunctioning or like you suggest.. you have some virus or malware. Boot with network support and you will be able to connect to the internet and get some anti-virus and anti-malware to scan the system with.

Most likely you have a bad video card. Try picking one up from a local pc shop and see if that helps. Bring your computer model number with you so they can sell you a compatible card. In the end if that doesn't fix it you can return the card.

My gx60 isn't bootin up..it says loading project..how do I fix this


From your photo, it looks like windows XP has fully loaded. I would assume the "Loading Project" is from a program, not windows. I would boot up in safe mode and try to do a system restore to when your computer was working. Here's how to boot up in safe mode:
* Press F8 key repeatedly while booting up, right before windows begins to load up. Black screen with white letters usually.
* You should get a few options. Select boot in safe mode with networking.
* once XP loads, Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.

How to skip logo and long boot sequence


That is booting directly into XP. The Windows XP logo that you stare at for a few minutes is actually hiding a whole lot of back end system checks. Without the logo you would be looking at a blank screen. There is a difference in load time, but it's about 2 seconds.

This is a hard drive issue, remove hardware and reseat it back into place, sometimes this will work and run fine. But it is more than likely your hard drive will need to be replaced.

Samsung r40 not loading xp


If the computer boots in to safe mode fine, you more than likely have a virus or spyware interfering with the boot process.

Windows also could have corruption on it.
Insert your windows XP CD and boot the computer, you may need to set your boot order in BIOS so tht CD is first.

Once the CD loads Run the recovery console Select 1 for the C: drive if it asks for a password this is generally blank or will be the password on the "Administrator" account you see when you boot to windows in safemode

Once in the recovery console do a chkdsk /f command
This is will check for errors on the disk and can fix a lot of boot issues
I would also suggest typing the command mbrfix to replace the master boot record.

If it still will not boot you may need to reinstall windows xp

Laptop Screen goes blank


Are you running on battery or AC? Try using the power cord, remove the battery and see if it continues. I have seen a battery that is on its last legs do some weird things to a computer. Also, check your power management setting. Control panel, power, and set the computer to "always on" just to see if it could be a power management setting. If none of this works, i would back up all your files, and try to reload win xp from scratch.

Whitescreen on Laptop


you have to open your laptop though. its the cable or wire from the LCD to the motherboard or graphics card. i think its because of the heat. just have to unplug it and plug it again for a few times.. or if you dont want to open up your laptop. there's another solution.first just power up your laptop and you may notice that although its pure while screen it is loading up its OS. after you think that it booted up all the way. snap close the lcd or press the lid button to make the laptop go stand-by. then when standing-by press any key to resume. the screen should go back to normal operation, if not wait a few minutes then close the lead again. and so so. thats what i do with my acer aspire 3640. i got bored so i open it up. so now its been okay so far. there ya go..
