Error message System Disabled code 70876817 on Compaq Presario CQ57. What do I do?
older Compaq day, wow.
the C57 has many numbers in suffix, 57 is not just one PC. ok.
why not read the service tag first and tell the full model number first. 2011 year , is not too old just 2 years before all compaqs ended, for ever.
or google that code.
here I will for you., and zip nada
so you did not tell the story, you push the power button
with main battery removed, (big bat out ,yah they SHORT)
and push power for 10 seconds and release power.
1: fan silent, it must not be, this is first.
2: screen dead, no 70876817, POST code text?
3: bios hot keys dead.
4: Bios screens dead.?
5: windows login screen missing? if it is even windows at all?
no flashing LED codes? repeating endless.

Still getting message-your profile could not be opened correctly-very annoying! Still not auto filling, and can't get new tab feature
compaq Presario CQ60-420US
a very old PC. 7 years is not too bad, on the edge there.
what OS? windows what?
doing what what are you doing.
my guess is this is BROWSER question,
is this IE , 4,5,6,7,9,10,11
only IE 11 (if is MS class) works now, so .... what is yours that?
web sites now block older IE versions a fact.
I use firefox v56, so should you.
back to internet explorer why>
you have browser take over, infections (google bar is one)
its infected, for sure.
get Firefox v56 and run that, or newer.
there are 20 top browers and IE is not in the lest.
IE is dead now at MS. 100% dead. Edge is NOW .
if running XP or Vista and using IE you will get nothing but pain
from now on.
this PC came new with (options day 1)
if vista you are doomed.
if W7 ,get IE11 from ms and use that
in fact IE11 is required to do MS updates, or they fail
are you running AV ? antimalware? even defender?
did you upgrade to w10 mid 2015 to 2016?
never post software questions, lacking OS name.
and what browser you use.
or answers will be wrong. I promise.

Presario cq56 laptop have no display
Plug in another monitor on the monitor output - if that monitor works then the problem lies with the laptop display. If the external monitor does not work also then the anomaly lies with the video circuits of your laptop. In either case , repair is expensive and not cost effective - better off just getting another computer.

Will not power on
does the laptop get power but not turn on?
it could be the power switch on the laptop or the ac adapter
it will need to be checked by a computer technician ask for a quote

On my 15in compaq how long should a fully charged battery last
A microswitch at the connection (where cord connects to laptop) is failed - this will need to be replaced, unfortunately, this requires nearly full disassembly of the laptop to get to the connector, and the whole connector has to be replaced. On one (of two) motherboards used in this model, it will require part to be soldered to remove, and soldered back on... the other it's a smallish board that unplugs from the main board.

Some of my keys on my laptop are not working.
Replace the keyboard with a new one. Laptop keyboards are not that expensive.
Make sure that the replacement is compatible with your computer. To know more about it, please visit the website of your computer's manufacturer.
You can also try a USB keyboard to check if the non-working keys work with the other keyboard.
I hope this helps!
