Which operating system ?
The Compaq Presario CMOS password is an administrative security measure built into the firmware of a Compaq computer.

This password is stored in the motherboard's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and provides for hardware-level security.

This password may be accidentally set or forgotten over time and must be reset in order to boot the computing system.

Disconnect the Compaq computer from any electrical sources and remove the side access panel from its case.

This may require the removal of one or more thumbscrews on the rear of the computer case.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules

Locate the CMOS battery.

This battery is a round button-type battery located in the bottom-right corner of the Compaq Presario motherboard.

Grip the battery by its edges and pull it straight away from the motherboard to remove it.


Press and hold the power button on the case for ten seconds to remove any remaining electrical current from the computer.

This removes the CMOS settings and returns it to the default state of having no password set.

Replace the CMOS battery.


Replace the computer's side access panel and re-establish any previously severed electrical connections.

Compaq Presario s3310cl starts when hooking in power plug and will not shutoff using power button. Just started doing this today. Someone said to unhook everything and hold power button in for 20 seconds...


The On/Off switch is mounted inside of the Case Front Bezel. It is
very unlikely that it is broken. The problem is the front bezel
plastic switch (which is not really the switch) is more like a cap or a
knob that comes in contact with the actual switch is somehow broken.
You can remove the front bezel to see I am talking about.
Manually push On/push Off on the actual switch and your system will turn
On and Off like it should.

Why the door on the CPU will not open when button is pressed?


If it's what I think it is you can get it open by inserting a very small object like a toothpick into the small holeon the face of the disc drive somewhere, most of the face plates on computers are just that a fake front, so when you push the button there is a peice of the fake fron that hits the actual button on the drive, if you get it to open with the tooth pic you can remove the entire front of the computer, if you think you can and see if the fake button is broken off, if it is you can then remove that part of the fake front in front of the actual drive door and it will just look a little funny but will function normally, I knoe it's a lot to follow but if you go slow you will see what I mean

WHAT IS THE RESET BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF MY COMPAQ PRESARIO 2500 SPECIFICLY DO. IN OTHER WORDS IF I PUSH IT WILL I LOSE ALL MY STORED INFORMATION ON THE DRIVE?


This is straight from the manual:

Occasionally, Windows or the notebook might stop responding, so that you cannot turn the notebook off. If this happens, try the following in the order listed. Press the power button to restart.
• If possible, shut down Windows: press ctrl+alt+del, and then select Shut Down > Restart.
If the system will not allow a software shutdown, press and hold down the power button until the display shuts down (about 4 seconds) and then release the power button. Press the power button again to restart.
• Use a ballpoint pen or a straightened paper clip to press the reset button on the bottom of the notebook.

In other words: You will not loose any saved data if you reboot your laptop this way. All unstored information (open documents etc.) might be lost though.

My note book Compaq Presario 700 is dead


Does anything happen when you turn it on? First thing to try is unplugging the notebook and then removing the battery. Then, replace the battery, plug in the notebook and try to power it on. If nothing happens still, try removing the battery and then plugging it in and try to power on the notebook with no battery in it.
