Blood damage to switches

I don't know if this is a sign of the times but ?????????? I'm sorry that you had to clean all of the blood out of the machine. You should replace all of the switches etc. You can buy used parts for these machines on Ebay really cheap now.

I hope that you do not have to work on any more machines filled with blood.

How can i unblock websites

Open your browser and Click TOOLS/ INTERNET OPTIONS/ SECURITY/ TRUSTED SITES. Then if the box in the lower left corner is checked, UNCHECK IT. After that, type the web address you want to allow in the other box @ the top and click the ADD button. Click OK to close. Now you should have no problem. Do that for future websites you want to add as well. BUT PLEASE BE SURE TO ONLY ADD WEBSITES THAT YOU ARE CERTAIN TO BE SAFE!!! Otherwise the Threat of getting a virus comes into play. OK? GOOD LUCK!! and please rate me, k? thank you

My Compaq Presario Laptop won't open certain sites because they are not "secure" eg. Quora, BBC Weather, sundry health sites, etc.

Question edited for clarity, and Maker name. Question moved from BBC Computers. BBC Weather and Quora and both secure and have an http*S* security certificate. My guess is that you have a third party security app, or worse, two of them, not understanding status or fighting with each other.

I want to upgrade cpu

You need to find out what is compatible with your computer before you can look. I suggest googling what will work with whatever type of laptop you have then search for it on Newegg.com. I would like to go into more detail but the information you provided is below minimum.

CPU Upgrade Help Compaq M700

All M700 CPUs are SMT (Surface Mounted Technology) = soldered onboard. You have to replace the whole mobo if you wanna upgrade. Suggest you get the whole bottom piece from eBay - easiest way for upgrade! 

 

The mobo also has a VR sub-board which I was told is different between PII->PIII 500mhz, PIII 600mhz -> PIII 750mhz, and PIII 800mhz-> PIII 1Ghz. So better replace the entire lower piece - lowerfixer.

Getting computer to turn on and retrieving old photos from a damaged computer that's in a fire but not burnt the smoke damage has been cleaned up it is a Compaq Presario 5000

Hopefully our Computer Guru Larry Ng will be along soon. As long as it wasn't oven hot, there should not be that much wrong with it. I have a couple of suggestions. 1. Take the hard drive out and put it into a powered external hard drive enclose that is compatible with your hard drive. Easiest solution, and your old computer SERIOUSLY needs upgrading. Then your Hard Drive contents will be visible on the computer you connect the USB lead to as a separate volume. You will have C:\ with the operating system on, D:\ will be the Optical DVD Drive and E:\ will be the contents of the Compaq. https://www.newegg.ca/Hard-Drive-Enclosures/SubCategory/ID-92 2. XP is old and a Virus Magnet. You may be able to buy a Windows 7, possibly Win 8 upgrade CD, but usually you need the media disc for the OS already on the computer. Or you can buy a full version, which will allow you to upgrade anything. 3. One more thing you can try is tapping F8 as the computer is booting and see if you can see 'Start Computer with last known best Configuration. 4. Or you can take it to a local Independent computer shop and ask them to recover all your data from the hard drive to USB Memory Stick As I said, just suggestion until Larry gets here. I am a minor Expert compared to him.
