COMPAQ PRESARIO WON'T BOOT FROM CD


Hello, you are experiencing this because of the Boot priority setting in your bios. Your computer has been set to boot from your hard disk first and so it will never try to boot from a CD when it starts. There are 2 ways to fix this:
1. Go into your bios (usually by pressing F2, F10 or Delete key as your computer starts) and set the boot priority to check CD or optical drives first. Consult your PC manual if necessary.
2. Press F12 when your computer starts, this will bring up a menu to select boot options. Choose your CD drive.
Thanks for using FixYa

I have been given a Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop but it has password that we don't know . It did not come with any type of cds. I need to wipe it clean but how do I restore the windows xp home edition?


Well, here's the bad news. 1) Windows XP is not supported any more by Microsoft. (2) You need the original CD's that previously installed XP on your computer. If you can't get them from the previous owner, then you'll have to try and find some original CD's and reinstall XP on your machine, from scratch. (3) If your computer has what it needs, an option is to install Windows 7 on your computer - it depends how old your computer is and if it has the necessary hardware.

I have a Compaq Presario SR5350F which suddenly has started shutting itself off after being on for about 5 minutes. I ran the test stuff and it didn't show anything wrong with the hard drive or processor....


First thing to do if you have not cleaned the inside of the computer is give it a good cleaning. There may be enough dust inside that it is overheating. Reply if that is not the problem.

Compaq Presario SR1365CL (4) yrs old, fan making annoying noice


Often you can blow the dust out of the fans and it will help. In your case the bearings have most likely dried up on a fan. First blow the dust out of all the fans. To find the offending fan you will have to block the blades with something. Once the fan is found you can either replace it with a fan of the same size or re-oil the bearings. To re-oil, carefully peal away the label on the fan. There might be a plastic plug over the bearing, carefully remove it. Drop a few drops of 4-in-1 oil or sewing machine oil into the bearing. Stick the label back on and put the fan back into the system. It should be much quieter now.
