2 Answers

Keeps restaring... Hey guys! Im not so good at this so bare with me please, everytime i try to start my Presario 700, it says " were sorry for the incovenience, but windows did not start succesfully." then it gives me list of things to why this might have happened. Then it gives me options to how i want to start windows : safe mode, safe mode with networking... etc and start windows normally. I have tried all of the options given to me , it goes to windows xp screen and then goes right back to the compaq screen. Then it just goes back to "were sorry" part.Same thing over and over again. Does anyone know how i can fix this problem? Thank you!

The cmos battery is inside the laptop itself , you have to remove the keyboard and then remove the heatsink , then you will see it on the top right hand corner.

    Ok you seem to be stuck in a loop, it could be that the bios is corrupt and cannot start the first 640kb of memory to get into windows.

    You will need to locate your cmos battery inside, and remove, check to see if flat and replace if neccassary,but where it is anybody's guess, you will have to remove the covers underneath.

If you keep popping fuses everytime you try to start the car, you have a bare hot wire grounding out somewhere. That will cause the fuse to pop everytime you turn the key on. the best way to fix it is if you know someone who is good with electrical wires. Have them pull the fuse panel out and follow the wire until they find where the wire is bare. Have them fix that bad spot and that should fix your problem.
