Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Compaq Presarion 1425. I am trying to remove the administrator block so that my sister who is in college can download things from her school. A message about administration comes up when she is trying to read something, install something or open something up. I don't recall placing an administrator block. I just unpack the computer hook the necessary gadgets up (monitor, keyboard,etc) and go. But I really need this block off. Please Help Me.

If running Vista: Try the following
Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it. Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer. You should be done with administrator prompts! Now, Microsoft highly recommends that you do not do this. A little red X shield icon plants itself in your taskbar, telling you about the security risk. In Control Panel, go to the Security Center. On the left hand side, click the "Change the way Security Center alerts me" and choose "Don't notify me and don't display the icon (not recommended)"

Just by a wild chance the "block" isn't coming from your sisters colleges web site?

My compaq presarion won't start up and the led in the charger hole won't light on


Try removing the battery and only using AC power. If the power
LED on the power brick does not come on then replace the power supply. If it works with just AC then replace the battery. If it still doesn't work, warranty replace the computer.

I have a Compaq Presarion CQ60-114E and I have a Black Screen


You simply need to replace the screen, and or backlight, it is a relatively easy job, as long as you get a service manual. I usually get my screens from eBay, or similar.

You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: -

Tweak BIOS to install Windows XP


Shouldn't need any "tweaking". Not sure offhand on the c700, but manytimes the Compaq bios is limited (and I'm a Compaq user - servers, desktops & laptops). What is itexactly that you're trying to achieve? I replaced Vista on my F500 series first with XP and finally with Linux - no problems (other than initially finding drivers). Just make sure to download and build an XP driver disk beforehand and you won't have any problems.
