Problems with booting a Compaq presario cq 60 - black boot screen showing Compaq with 'Press the ESC key for Startup Menu' What should I be doing next - nothing seems to work?


Reinstall Windows, the one you have now is corrupted: get your recovery disk, put it in press Esc and select the CD as boot device. Now follow the instructions on the screen

My laptop won't start up. compaq screen comes up then the loading bar. Stays loading for about 3 mins then shuts down and starts process all over again


This happens when the operation system is corrupted or files needed for successful boot are missing ..so the the basic fix is to reinstall the operation system or use teh recovery partition if you have one on your laptop or the recovery disk if you got one when you bought it ..
this link will show you how to operate this using the recovery partition built in
http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_8463155_restore-compaq-presario-cq50-disk.html
basically restart and press F11 for the boot menu and select recovery partition ..and go for it ..
If the partition is missing or damaged use a recovery disk if you have ..or a operation system boot-able one ..The last one need to be inserted ..and the computer restart ..and if it is set to boot first from the disk will ask you to press any key to do it ..and you will go on with the instructions for a clean install ..You will need all drivers for it when you finish ..so is best to get them before using another computer ..
here is the support site where you can find them

Wont boot up


try removing all cables connected to your tower, (including power cable, mouse, keyboard, VGA cable, scanner, printer, camera etc.)- then press the power button for at least 5 seconds, this is what we call POWER DRAIN, then try booting up your system again, if still unresolved, power off your tower, then open up your chassis, reseat the cables of your HARD DISK -- try again. if still unsolved, try entering the BIOS, check if the HARD DISK is detected..

Will not boot up


Machine powers up rigth? Ok I have came same problem a few, this is what I do.
I remove the HDD , Do this if you have original cd rom sets for recovery and OS. Get USB external and connected to another computer. First I delete all the folders, even recovery. Then Format the HDD at USB external position.
Remove it, Re-insert to the laptop.
I open CD rom with needle, Where ther is small hole just insert pins it opens.
Put first disk. close it and start your computer. with luck you will get the screen to load your original recovery. This will delete all your files and documents. cause you are installing like new HArddisk so make sure you understand the procedure, It is your own risk.
If you wanted to save some files You may access them by USB external and copy them as folder to your host computer to transfer later.
