Preferred Solution: Compaq 7400 lost DIAGS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Compaq 7400 lost DIAGS

is this your link?

it creates bootable diskette with setup program. afaik, you'll need to reseat cmos battery before doing this(in case, when your laptop won't boot from floppy first).

I have a compaq armada 7400 laptop that I have had for about 5 years without ever a problem.

Now the eraser/joystick mouse in the center of the keyboard does not seem to want to go down. Only side to side & up. So once up, you can't get back to the bottom of the screen.

I usually plug in an optical ps2 mouse but when the eraser mouse went bad I also can't get a ps2 mouse to work either, tried a few different brands. I guess I will have to try a usb mouse next.

Just wondering if anyone else experienced this & know how to solve the mouse problem.

Could find anything wrong so thought I would just reformat & reload since I want to see if it will handle xp anyways.

Any guesses on if it is hardware or software related?


A:compaq armada 7400 laptop - bad mouse

It sounds like software to me George, but I guess you will find out more after your re-format is done. good luck. I know that you can re-install your mouse drivers if you go to control panel>system>device manager. Anyway good luck.

Yes, the same laptop with the previous DIAGS partition problem - that was solved! Thanks.

Now ...

It wasn't in use for a few weeks. Then started it up - no front LED indicator lights - sudden shutdowns - battery not charging - replaced battery - charging fine but still no front LED lights and occasional sudden shutdowns.

Any ideas?

Hi all, I've just got an old Compaq nx 7400 laptop from a friend. It worked last time it was booted several years ago (!) It now shows the splash screen and goes straight to a black screen with "Error!" displayed at the top right. Can anyone say what this indicates - power? memory?cpu? I haven't found anything helpful yet. Pressing F2, F10, F9 doesn't do anything. I've left it on the power for 15 mins in case this helps the BIOS/BIOS battery, but same result. Thanks

A friend gave me two 256M sticks.

I worked for 3 years on a single 128M stick - no problems.

I put in one stick, booted, and the add'l ram showed up, to 384M.

I pulled my 128, put in the second 256, and no add'l ram. It showed only 256M - the first 256 stick, but not the second 256 stick.

To confirm, I pulled the first 256M stick, left in the second (bad?) 256M stick, and the machine wouldn't boot.

What else could it be? Is the second stick toast?

I recently got a Dell Vostro 3500 laptop and discovered the comprehensive suite of hardware diags that are built in and run by pressing f12 at boot time. Has anyone heard of a comparable set of diags in one package that will run on any PC like a home-brew model? I'm guessing any such package would need to be customized for any given hardware configuration.

I have a problem with an intermittent failed boot. Boots to Win7 part way and halts with a black screen and some cryptic error, but is left in running state with no apps running.

gang I have an unusual situation I can't explain: an ordinary HP desktop, good quality, that black-screened a couple weeks ago and left little hints about what the cause was. I'll have to sift through the minidmp to figure it out. But the superficial signs all point, circumstantially, to the Drive or file system.
no malware. no power surges/fails that I could see. nothing funny in the way of updates etc.
at any rate, it has a WD6400aaks drive - very common in hp/cpq and a good drive, as they go.

running the WD Diags fails due to a "Smart Enable" error. There are a lot of posts about this elusive error and no satisfactory answers. I plan to extract the drive from the system and run other tests on it. my 'other' hdd tests range from destructive to just old/antiquated Linux-based tools

it may be psoosible to replace the drive - some compaqs are quite easy to change - a couple of screws at the bottom and the drive slides out the side - others can be a bit more difficult

theres quite a few cq60 on the hp website under support
then look down righthand side for manuals

Good morning

I dont know if anyone can help. I have recently upgraded my Compaq C700 from Vista Home Basic to Vista Business due to several issues with slow processing speed and issues with booting. Vista Businesss seems to be working fine and a vast improvement, however, unfortunately the wireless connection no longer works.

The button on the keyboard remains orange. I have looked under device manager and under networks it is showing two unknown devices. On wireless network search, it is showing on broadband LAN connections and no wireless options. If I click on wireless options, I get the message that the wireless adapter is not installed and configured.

I have downloaded a programme called Driver Robot which claims to note that the wireless adapter is missing and provides the driver. However, this does not seem to install on download.

Any assistance much appreciated.

I have an older Dell laptop that was running Vista. It is actually working well for it's purpose. But having seen Win7 much more responsive i decided to buy and try Win8 on this laptop.
The Windows 8 Upgrade Assistent told me that NVidia 7400 GO was supported, but i had to re-install all my apps. Based on that i decided for a clean install.

The reality is though that only "Microsoft basic display adapter" is used and only 1024x768 :-(

No original NVidia drivers have been found for this card.
The latest driver + inf from laptopvideo2go is also not installable.

I'm trying both the setup.exe way and the manual driver install from Control Panel.

Any idea on how i get this working?

br Lars

A:Win8 upgrade assistent: NV 7400 GO supported, but NO!

A lot of the older Dell's are not supported for newer Operating Systems (no drivers). I've seen some that were able to find non-Dell drivers that work but its hit or mostly miss. I used to do a lot of support on the Dell users forums and the availability of Dell drivers or incompatibility came up often. Basically, "you are on your own" to try and find drivers that will work with the old hardware.

Dell tends to use some proprietary/custom OEM hardware (more so on older hardware) and that makes finding support (drivers) that much more of a problem.

Sorry I can offer more positive help.

Hey Guys,

I've done quite a bit of searching about and while this seems to be a common problem I can't find a solution that works! Would appreciate any help that can be provided.

I did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium and it's not recognising my graphics card which is a built in NVIDIA Geforce 7400 on my Sony Vaio (VGN-SZ48GN). In its place is listed 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter', which displays as 4:3 instead of widescreen. Very frustrating.

I have tried the following -

1) Getting the newest drivers from NVIDIA - Does not complete install as Windows fails to recognise this is the hardware I have.

2) Uninstalling the display adapter in 'Device Manager' - Reinstalls the same generic card on reboot

3) Using the old drivers in Windows.old - Already says I have the best drivers for my device.

Hi all
you can swap the normally small HDD installed in a laptop for a 320GB or 500 GB 7200 RPM drive really easily and cheaply.

Current cost is around 60 USD.

The speed performance improvement you will see in your laptop will amaze you -- 7400 RPM disks obviously not as fast as SSD's but are still SIGNIFICANTLY better than the standard 100/120/160 GB 5400 rpm hdd's installed in most laptops by default.

Changing a laptop HDD is actually normally EXTREMELY EASY-- although make sure you can restore your image to the new laptop disk --use your backups bootable media to restore an image from an external USB HDD --acronis is good here but any proper imaging / backup program should work providing you can boot the recovery software.

Incidentally it's also worth upping the RAM too if you can get at the RAM modules easily enough --2GB laptop RAM modules are also cheap now.


A:Laptop users (including Netbooks) upgrade to 7400 RPM HDD's

I recently swapped the HDD on a 2007 HP laptop for an Intel 80GB SSD. The speed gain is amazing although my main motivation was a heat problem - and that got fixed too. The laptop runs a lot cooler now.
My wife uses that system and she does not have a lot of data. So the 80GBs work out well.

Well you should be able to access the CMOS Bios by using either the delete, F1 or F2 keys (sometimes f10). Then under the Bios you should see the Boot Sequence and be able to change it from there. But either way, you should be able to get past the Compaq splash screen. Try setting your boot sequence and see if that helps.

Try a power drain.
1. Unplug power cord
2. Hold power button in for 60 seconds or more then let go
3. Plug in power cord
4. turn on the power and try to boot to setup (BIOS)

If it enters the BIOS then you should be able to just press F5 to reset to defaults and then F10 to save and exit. The PC should work now.

However, if after the power drain you still can not get in the BIOS than there is a MAJOR problem which would require some type of repair.

HiI have an HP Compaq SG3-110UK desktop, and I would like to change the hard drive to an SSD. Firstly is this desktop compatible with an SSD drive - secondly what type of SATA connection would I need assuming I can? I would prefer to keep the original HDD for additonal storage, so was thinking of getting a power splitter and putting the drive in the optical bay, or the old HDD there (either way). Is this a possible? Are there any gotchas before I commit hard cash? Thanks for all your advice Rob  

A:HP - Compaq Compaq SG3-110UK - Can I install an SSD drive

Hi, From the following link I don't think you have room for a second HDD unless you have to modify the 5.25" bay. Now back to your main question, yes, you can replace current SSD with a 2.5" SSD. Currently your machine uses SATA II (3Gb/s) but I believe you can't find any SATA II SSD around, you have to buy a SATA III SSD. You also need 2.5 to 3.5 inch SSD Mounting Bracket which you can buy at any good computer shop for under $10 (or few pounds). You have to work out how to put (physically) the old HDD back. Regards.

System froze, waited 15 minutes and attempted to restart. Unable to Cntrl, Alt Delete. Manual shutdown, on restart, computer goes to Compaq screen but will not allow access to F1, F8, Esc or F10 to restore. Unplugged the wireless keyboard and did another manual restart with the PS2 keyboard connected. Same response, have tried another PS2 keyboard, same response. Also used wired mouse to no effect.

I have inserted Win XP cd rom hoping to boot from that but no effect. I am stuck, does anyone have a suggestion since I can't get into restore or safe mode, I don't have a clue.

Hello sb6204

I am not clear if any keyboard and mouse work.

If they do, try a system restore

Boot into Safe Mode Options Screen (the one with Last Known Good Configuration on it) by pressing F8 at bootup and choose
'Safe mode with command prompt'

At the command prompt type

Hopefully this will open System Restore, so restore to before you installed Logitech

The 7400 is the best option, since it's fastest, but you may not need a faster video card if you don't do activities that require a fast video card. This link may be helpful.

Please Note: Once you start ComboFix you should not click anywhere on the ComboFix window as it can cause the program to stall. In fact, when ComboFix is running, do not touch your computer at all. The scan could take a while, so please be patient.message edited by Johnw

I configured a wireless network in my house a few days ago. I am using a D-Link DIR-300 Wireless router.

Everything has been working perfectly for 2 days until just an hour ago.

Suddenly the wireless connection was lost (no internet and no connection to router possible anymore via wireless), then Vista automatically tries to reconnect --> with success. connection is there again --> everything working fine for a few minutes --> then connectin gets lost again --> reconnect and so on.

I have tried it with a different Notebook and the same problem is there also. When the connection gets lost, it is on the other notebook lost also.

What could the cause for this be?

I have Vista Home Premium 64 bit and I downloaded 64 Bit RC Windows 7 and did a clean install on another partition of my hard drive. Dual boot was working for about 4 days then all of a sudden it doesnt come up any more. The partition is still there with Windows 7 installed on it but its not booting under it. I go into MSConfig and Windows 7 isnt even being detected, checked the advanced system options in the control panel and it isnt there either.

Any idea how to recover windows 7? I did not install it from dvd, I installed from Daemon Tools and worked fine.

Do I need to Burn the image to a DVD and run it on startup if I want to run Windows 7?

I have just had a guy to look at my system , because I had a few problems.
1. I could not get onto Outlook Express - which he couldn't solve -this has been solved by myself.
2. I couldn't get on Internet Explorer - which he couldn't solve-this has been solved by Talktalk.
3. System Restore wasn't able to delete a previous restore point or go back to previous restore point. This is the only thing he resolved. He did that by inserting his own disk and working from that.
Cosequently this has left me with more problems.
1. I have lost all my Contacts on OE
2. I have lost al my favourites on IE
3. I have lost my wallpaper on Desktop, which was guite special [Grandchildren]
Can I recover any of these items

That's a tough one! I've renamed profiles before and been able to move data from one to another so I'm not sure how you lost all of your documents.

You can copy documents from one profile to another if you have admin rights. You may need to restore the permissions to the files by Right click, properties, security.

I have a WD Red 2.0 TB drive (1.8 TB formatted) and have been watching it fill up (%used) for some time now. I have lost 1 TB to "unknown" according to WinDirStat. VSS is NOT RUNNING, which I read about in the tutorial here: System Protection - Turn On or Off.

So, what could be eating this space and how do I recover it?

FYI - the usual litany - No viruses; Disk Cleanup was run; Drive diagnostics pass; Chkdsk, defrag, etc. all OK.
Also, the thing I use the drive for is to maintain program libraries. I perform a lot of temporary folder copies and delete old copies. The recycle bin is empty. Have no idea why this space is lost.

A:Lost space on external drive - Lost 1TB of 2TB drive

I've always found WinDirStat results a bit cryptic.

Maybe you can get a more sensible result with a similar free application:

TreeSize Free - Quickly Scan Directory Sizes and Find Space Hogs

The usual suspects are hibernation file, System Restore points, page file, malware/virus, or some program doing something you don't expect it to do. For instance, we recently had a case here where someone was using a cloud backup program that was mis-configured and putting the backups on local drives, rather than in the cloud.

This is for any of the people who may work on Laptops regularly. Got a compaq N1000V that refuses to boot. Can't even get to the bios. Battery was at 2.88 volts, replaced it anyway. The mobo has an led that is on constantly so its getting power. There is a real quick flash of light across the screen at the same time you hit the power button and also an led flash for the HD power. This is as far as it gets toward post. The HD works fine in another machine and was able to transfer files to another drive from it. The processor gets hot if I leave the power applied to the machine and do not turn off from the button. Anyone with any ideas??

My Compaq "750mhz Duron" is locking up, and it had windows ME on it. So, I decide to upgrade to WIN XP. It is still locking up at different stages, sometime I get to the desktop, or it lockup at the booting stage. When was I trying to install Windows XP, it would also lockup at different stages of the installing processe. However, I was able to install win xp on the pc, like I said before it lockup at different stages. I changed the power supply, memory, hard drive and the video card. I guess it has to be the mother board that is bad. I am on the right track.
