Text problems with my Compaq laptop

I have either a Windows XP glitch or Compaq laptop screen problem. I turn on the laptop and have to type in my password. The text in the password box is clear and visible. I then have to log into my system, again, the text in this box is clear. As soon as my desktop is displayed, the text is very blurred and impossible to read unless, as I have already done, I increase the text size, which is a pain when trying to use the web for research, or even using office becomes problematic. I've searched for similar problems but so far have found nothing. I have noticed that my laptop gets very warm whilst if I use it on my lap, which is not that often, and apart from that I have not noticed any other problems. Is there a solution out there?

Perhaps you don't have the correct VGA drivers loaded or the screen resolution is not set to the best for your display!
The first two passwords are more than likely imputed before the system VGA drivers have been loaded!
You shouldn't really use it on your "Lap" hence most manufacturers have changed to the word "Notebook". Your clothes can block the cooling ports (causing over heating) and believe it or not there is a theory that they can give off a type of radiation which would be better off not being in your "Lap"

I have a compaq presario 1200 laptop and I have a blue screen problem. Whenever I run anything memory intensive it simply flashes a blue screen at me then reboots. Whats more is after it reboots it won't...


Your Operating System (OS) is corrupted.
The best solution to this problem is to reinstall your OS using an OS installation CD.
I would also recomend upgrading to Windows XP.
You can upgrade by simply installing Windows XP on your laptop.
Back up all your data before reinstalling your OS.

Compaq armada e500 boot up


Try tapping the F5 or F8 key (could be either one) right after you power up. This should take you to a short text message with a couple of choices to continue; you'll find the Safe Mode option there which will prevent the continuation of the unsuccessful boot routine. If you can reach the Safe Mode, run Restore and go back to an earlier point in time, you may have to go back several times because if you have picked up some kind of malware, it may have been backed up with everything else.  Unless it is a really smart bug, you might be able to circumvent it.

System file is "missing or corrupt"


You MUST use the installation bootup disk to install windows it is the only way........... NOT THE RECOVERY DISK this is a MUST. Allow it to go through the motion of installing Windows until it cannot go any further. Then press the "R" key for the console. When in the DOS screen TYPE ... chkdsk /p Windows will repair itself and then you will recover all your data it should be back to normal.
