Laptop start up problem

Hi i have a compaq presario v4000 and all of a sudden the computer will not start up and when turned on just takes me to a screen saying windows did not start successfully a recent hardware or software change might have caused this. it gives me options to start in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration and start windows normally; however i have tried doing this on all options and it trys to launch windows but brings me back to the same page. can you please help?

Thanks!

    My problem is identical, but I cannot work out how to disable BIOS to remedy it. I have tried pressing F1 repeatedly after turning on the computer, but this does not work.

    Well we aren't in 09 so I'm hoping this problem was solved for the prior post. I have his exact problem but need a solution to it. I could not even locate the Virus area of the BIOS.

Hi!! I have a Compaq Presario that a friend gave me a while back that used to work and start up..but it doesn't now and I haven't been on it in months. It keeps saying that: Windows could not


The "Win32 config" system folder and the files within it are crucial to the Windows Operating System's stability. If any of these files become damaged or corrupted, you likely receive error messages. Fortunately, Microsoft puts the files to repair these problems on the installation CD that comes with your operating system. The original install disk offers a quick way to repair the system. Damaged files are replaced in only a few minutes.

Insert your Windows CD into the computer drive. Restart your computer. On startup, look for the message, "Press any key to boot from CD" and press "Enter" on your keyboard. You should see the blue "Welcome to Setup" screen. Click "Enter" on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. Read the "Microsoft Software License Terms," then press "F8." Use your arrow keys, go down and select the Windows installation you want to repair. Press "R" for "Repair." Windows will now start to restore the Win32 System to your computer.

Hi,

Its not compatible. It has different screw listings then V4000.
If you could provide me the product No. which is at the bottom sticker of the notebook of your Compaq v4000 laptop then I can find the part no. for LCD screen which is less costlier and exchangeable.

Compaq presario v4000 needs to system restore


Reboot the computer > when you see the Compaq name appear, tap the F8 key until you see a black screen with boot choices appear. The first ones on the list are "Safe Mode", what you want is "Safe Mode with Networking", this way just a limited amount of drivers loads including your networking and internet. If you do get booted up, try to get to www.filehippo.com and download "MalwareBytes Malware Remover", install this and do a quick scan and remove anything it finds. You may also try to boot off the windows installation disc and choose the repair option for windows.

You do not need to dismantle to base, you have some star screws under the battary and one either side that loosens the small panel near the screen (where the power button is). The screen cover has screws under the plastic covers then just unclips, be gentle. after that it is self evident
