How di i set my compaq presario sr1265cl to factory settings


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

Tower will not turn on


I am in no way an expert on computers but after hours of research, of course starting at fixya.com, and trying everything short of buying power supply and motherboard, i found a post that suggested to use a blow dryer and blow hot air over the area with the blinking light for about a minute. I was really reluctant to try this but am glad i did. In less than a minute i could hear the comp powering up and the light went and stayed solid, so far that is. I always use fixya.com for everything and wanted to put what helped me on here in case it can help someone else or save them hours of research. I hope this help some. Good luck.

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...


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?

How can i connect compaq presario 1425 to a desk top pc so that i can use it front volume nob of the monitor to adjust the sound system from the desk top to listen to the sound


hi dear

Monitor Volume Control In order for the volume control feature of the Presario xx25 monitors to work correctly with the computer, it is necessary for the monitor to be powered on at least 8-10 seconds before the CPU. Try removing the computer and monitor from any surge protector or power strip that they may be attached to, and turning on the monitor first, then the computer itself.
3rd Party Video Cards The volume control on the 1425, 1525, 1725 and FX monitors is a digital control. It sends its commands via two conductors in the monitor's VGA data cable. The corresponding points on the VGA connector on your 4700 series Presario accept this signal. A 3rd party video card would not have this functionality built in. Most times, it just means the remote volume knob ceases to function. You can still adjust levels with the software. In some cases, however, a 3rd party card can cause the volume to either drop or go full on with no way to control it. One possible solution is to turn the computer on and let it fully boot up BEFORE you turn on the monitor. This way the monitor's remote volume function will not be initialized and you may be able to use the software volume controls.
You can if you want, go to any Computer parts store and purchase a VGA extension cable. You will need to remove pins 4 and 11. This cable will be installed on the monitor cable and then to the card itself. The rest of the manufacturers cabling will remain the same. You will lose the use of the volume control knob on the monitor. If this is not acceptable, then you will need to remove the card.
