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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've got it figured out, I just took the 1GB RAM stick out, since I won't be needing it once my new 2 GB stick comes in, and it booted up just fine, tested the same stick in both slots to make sure one wasn't bad and its all good now.

Hello,
I have recently upgrade my OS from Vista to Windows 7 Ultimate by clean install method.
I think so far everything works except microphone which I solved by installing updates from windows update.
So my question is, Should I install some drivers or some updates from either compaq or hp sites or wherever also? Should I try to find drivers specefic for my computer or go with the drivers which came with windows 7?
My computer model is: Compaq Presario CQ61

Thank you very much!!!

Recently my fan in my laptop was extremely loud, and the laptop was getting really hot. I proceeded to vacuuming my laptop and dust came out of it.

Somehow when vacuuming my fan, it broke.

Now it does not spin, and my laptop is silent.

Within 10 minutes of running the laptop it turns off; when it turns back on it says it shutdown to avoid over heating...

Any ideas, do i need a replacement, and should i take it to a computer place???

A:Broken fan on Compaq Presario CQ61

I suggest trying to blow out more dust. Maybe a dust bunny is preventing the fan from spinning.

If that doesn't work, the machine may need to be cleaned more thoroughly (disassembled). If that doesn't work, you'd need a replacement fan.

Take it to a shop, if you can't do it yourself, and you know a place that you can trust. (Preferably not Geek Squad at Best Buy. I've read few kind words about them.)

So recently the charger for my Compaq laptop has gone bust, and I need to know what charger I would need to buy. This has happened once before, and when I bought a new charger, the wattage wasn't correct for the computer, so that one broke too.

What I need to know, is the exact charger needed for this laptop, meaning the correct wattage for the computer. Links to websites where I can buy it would be greatly appreciated.

The ownership of the above machine has been transferred to me.I wish to revert the laptop to the factory settings.The recovery options are not accessible. Not by uising the recovery manager accessed through the Windows interface, via the F11 options or through the startup screen.Windows 7 home premium came presistalled.Is there a means of obtaining the installation discs?The hard drive was replaced by the previous owner. Thank you for any help. 

A:Compaq presario CQ61-415SA Recovery

HP no longer has any Windows 7 based recovery disks for consumer laptops. There is a 3rd party market for recovery disks.  http://computersurgeons.com/p-19931-windows-7-premium-64b-recovery-kit-599363-001-for-compaq-presari... That is not precisely your model but is AMD so the motherboard is the same as yours and would work. If you are a little more adventurous and tight-fisted, we can walk you through a "clean" recovery using an OEM Windows 7 install disk and the drivers found on this site.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have a Presario CQ61. I believe it was released in 2009.  Although it's very old I was wondering if this laptop will have driver support for windows 10. There are none as of now but will there be drivers for this laptop in the future?  Thanks.

Hi,

I recently turned on my laptop and the screen was black. After a while when it booted up, the screen came on as normal and then flashed out about 10 seconds later. I can shine a torch on to the screen when it boots up and see windows and everything but it's obviously too dark to use. I replaced inverter and lcd panel but the problem remains...

How should I go about fixing this?

A:Wiped the hard drive now i have no OS (Compaq Presario CQ61)

Hi, Alison.

A boot disk is the hard drive which your PC boots from and starts Windows, but your hard drive has had the boot files and Windows (or some of it) wiped off it with DBAN. DBAN is used to securely wipe all data from a hard drive prior to selling it or otherwise disposing of it -- this prevents any data from getting into the wrong hands.

You will have to contact HP/Compaq and ask them if they can send you a set of Recovery CDs for your model.

Quote:




I ran DBAN




DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke) is a low level format utility. Once you start this, it begins to wipe the drive of your OS. Stopping it in the middle is too late. If you had just run System Recovery would have set your system back to Factory Defaults, but DBAN deleted that too. You cannot copy an installed OS and put it on a different computer. An OS has to be installed from a boot disc (a disc that boots the computer if the OS can't)
What is the Vista recovery disc that you have? Boot into Setup (Bios) and change the Boot order to be CD/DVD rom drive First Boot Device, Save and Exit. Restart the computer with the disc in and you should see the message Press Any Key to Boot From CD/DVD.If it is a Vista install DVD then you can reinstall your OS. If not a Windows disc, you can try contacting your computer manufacturer and see if you can get a Recovery DVD for your computer manufacturer Or get a Vista DVD from Ebay or Craigslist.

A:Compaq Presario CQ61 and XP Pro Installation - A Living Hell

So you are trying to downgrade a machine that shipped with Windows 7 to Windows XP ? If so, that would have been a better title to the thread, as downgrades are their own special set of problems.

It also would have been a good idea to note that this is a laptop.

Given that, I am having difficulty understanding why you would need "RAID drivers" for a laptop. Does this laptop have two hard drives ?

The compaq support site does not list any XP-specfic drivers for the hard drive or hard drive controller.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...1166&sw_lang=&

Have you seen this area ?

Also I'm a bit skeptical of your Driver Genius Pro software, and am wondering if that has been involved in the situation yet, and if it's a possible cause for problems.

Is this HD parititioned, with the Ubuntu O/S on one partition ? If so, it would be better to get XP installed on a single-partition drive, then make another partition for Ubuntu.

nLite is sometimes buggy, and while it is solving one problem, it could be causing another.

A bad/buggy optical drive can also corrupt system files which can cause an install to go bad.

HD's can come from the factory with errors & bad sectors. I would run HDD Regenerator (from Hiren's) to make certain the HD is good.

Hello,

When I power on my Compaq Presario, the screen remains black, the key next to the power button is orange, the Caps Lock key is blinking and a light blinks above the "home, end, num lock keys", in the upper portion of the keyboard. I have tried taking out the battery, unplugging the power and holding the power button for 60 seconds, before trying it again, and I am not getting anything...HELP!!

Try re-seating the Ram. If that doesn't help remove the Cmos battery for a few minutes then put it back, it looks like a silver coin and should be visible near the ram.

Hi
When I turn on the laptop the fan runs, the caps and numbers flash not nothing on screen. I've tried linking it with TV to make sure it wasn't the screen had gone but nothing. Any advice would be much appreciated. What I really want is to try and get photos from the computer so will consider anything as last resort.

i hope u have gone to the compaq website and checked to see if your model of computer even has xp drivers available.if there isnt u might be out of luck or at the very least have a very hard time tracking down the correct drivers which is usually the chipset, audio, video, and internet. to go from windows 7 to xp u have to change the bios to be SATA ATA IDE or compatible to run xp properly. u go to the bios by tapping F2 right after the splash screen.hope this helps u.

I have a Compaq Presario that lacks a Ethernet cable link. It only has phone line links, but no Ethernet cable link. The network connection I use requires my Adapter to be able to connect with an Ethernet cable, but my desktop for the Presario doesn't have one.

Question: Is there any kind of cable that has the Ethernet on one side, and a Phone Line cable at the other side that I am able to purchase? Or is there any kind of link cable of some sort that could help my ethernet cable connect to this computer that does not have an Ethernet cable link? Thank you if helped.>.<

Hello lilevee22,

Before the problem started was anything added to or installed on the system?

Try booting to Last Known Good or Safe Mode.

Restart the computer during the boot process repeatedly tap "F8" you should get

the Advanced Options.

Let us know if able to get the system to boot with either option.

A:Compaq Presario SR1810NX Not Getting Past Compaq Logo Screen

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.

Hi there.

I wonder if anyone can help me. I have a Compaq pressario SR1629UK, there was a huge problem and I need to do a destructive recovery however they PC came with no disks. I have tried an F10 recovery but even tho I repeatedly press F10 the pc starts as normal. Is there any other way I can do a recovery or access the recovery with out disks?

A:Compaq Presario...F10 Recovery Not Working and No Disks

Hello ladyrazzor, welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Try this instead:
Go to your Start menu.
Under Programs or All Programs, look for PC Help and Tools. (or something similar)
Under Help and Tools, if you see it, click on Compaq System Recovery.
You will be asked if you really want to start system recovery, click Yes.

If asked to reboot, do so.
I've never used this method to do a recovery on my Compaq-the only thing I know is the option is there under the Start Menu.

If that doesn't work, you can try something else. Also in Help and Tools, you may see an option to make recovery disks.
You'll need a bunch of blank cd's to do this, then you can use them to do your recovery.

Good luck, let us know what happens.

Hi All,
I have a 2 y.o. Compaq Presario C700 laptop that came with Vista pre-installed. I did a format straight away to change it to windows XP and spent a fiddly couple of days getting all the drivers to work. They generally all work well, and I am currently trying to install a modded touchpad driver, but the problem is there isn't any recognition of my touchpad in the device manager or any synaptics drivers in the add/remove programs, but the touchpad still works. I go into mouse settings and look at the 'hardware' tab and it just says i have a ps/2 mouse that's plugged in and no touchpad.
Does anyone know how I can get the touchpad to show up in the device manager? I've gone into the BIOS at startup but I can't find any mouse or touchpad settings there either.

Thanks Alot.
 

A:No touchpad recognition on my Compaq Presario, but it's working?

just to add a bit of info here, I think it may be a BIOS/CMOS issue but since 'updating' my BIOS, I have lost a bunch of options I used to have. So I can't do things I used to be able to do..... looking into whether I can get a different version of the BIOS to work with.

Has the keyboard even been plugged in or unplugged while the machine was running?

Can you disable the PS/2 keyboard (right-click it in Device Manager and disable) and/or unplug it and try just the USB keyboard?

Can you enter BIOS setup to see if "leagacy" USB is enabled (or it might actually say "USB keyboard") and check that the date/time is correct?

A:MICROPHONE NOT WORKING-Compaq presario V500

May be or may not be I am not sure?
First, find and install a chipset driver software from the Driver CD that will be provided by the Compaq. If you don't have a Driver CD than needed to download. For SM bus controller which appeared yellow. Driver installation will resolve your issue.

Regarding, Majicjack device, it would not hinder with built - in microphone. However SM bus carries the signal of your microphone in order to executive. If Chipset driver is not installed than Majicjack device also won't work. Have a try, let us know.

I have a Compaq Presario C300. Somehow the screen cracked and of course was not under warranty. I purchased a replacement screen online and followed the directions to replace. It was relatively simple, however, now when I boot up the computer, the backlight comes on for the whole screen, but shows up blank. Did I just not fully connect something? Is there something simple I can check before I bring the whole darn thing in for service anyway? This is what I was trying to avoid in the first place. The whole laptop was only 800 and the new replacement screen was $199 (as opposed to the quote for $450 I got to have it replaced).

Anyone have any ideas I can try?

Try the good Ram chip in the dimm slot you suspect of being bad and then boot up, if it does boot then you know the chip you have been trying to use is bad. If the computer beeps you know the slot is bad.

I bought a Compaq Presario laptop a while ago (at least 2 years) and since then have traded it for something else to a friend of my now ex-wife. The screen quit working for the person so I bought it back for the charger which I needed anyways.

When I shine a light on the screen I can see everything and the computer works fine. What I want to know is if there are any settings on the computer that could be causing it to do this or if the screen is simply shot. Any help would be appreciated; I tried adjusting the brightness from the [Fn] + F7 and [Fn] + F8 keys but that didn't work.

You should add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

The drivers and downloads section has drivers for Windows Vista and Windows 7, but not for Windows XP.
Did you downgrade that laptop to Windows XP?

That laptop appears to have either an Intel or a NVIDIA graphics device, so we need to confirm which one it has.
Go into the Device Manager and then advise the names of the entries that have a yellow ? next to them.

A:Issue with Compaq CQ61-420US

The Compaq Presario CQ61-420US (WA976UA#ABA) laptop originally came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Because that laptop was purchased at a pawn shop and contained the programs and debris and issues from its previous owner, it needs to be wiped out and given a fresh start.

The factory restore recovery disc kit for it can be purchased here.

Hi Can someone advise me if this notebook is suitable for the Windows 10 upgrade. I've been told that it doesn't have the correct drivers. I thought that new drivers would be installed with the upgrade? Thank you Jack

A:Compaq CQ61- 401SA ( Windows 10 )

Here's the specs: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01967531 You have the Intel 4500M GMA graphics and it is a T4400 Pentium dual processor.  Windows 10 does not have a built-in driver for your video chip. However, the internet and youtube are full of workarounds. I have installed Windows 10 on several laptops with that hardware and it will work but in most cases I have eventually gone back to Windows 7 which works better on that era of hardware.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have been experiencing this since returning to a regular non-usb headset, I cannot set independent headphones as default device, I have found a workaround by disabling Speakers and Headphones. I may just have to buy a new USB headset because this is driving me nuts. If Speakers and Headphones are enabled and sound is coming through my headset, minute i key my mic on Ventrilo it goes to speakers on my laptop.

You may have to press a keyboard key to enable an external monitor. If you have already done this, the motherboard or CPU may be fried. Laptop motherboards and CPU are constantly subjected to overheating, specially if you place an operating laptop on a bed or carpeted floor often

A:Compaq Presario Disk Boot Failure F10 system recovery not working

Hi Luchipboo, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

That Compaq has a recovery partition, this is why it didn't come with the discs. If you have the user's manual it should explain how to use it.

If you wish to backup the files that are on there first, you can alway install that hdd in another desktop as a slave drive. This will required setting the jumper on the rear of the drive in the slave position, and connect to the IDE data connector in the middle location. You should be able to access your files from there.

Compaq Presario 2200 laptop is not booting to Windows XP.

I get an error message right after the Windows XP loading screen (the screen with the loading bar). After the loading screen it goes blank for a few seconds, and finally to a BSOD that says "The Video Driver Failed to Initialize". After that appears, it starts the whole process again.

I tried Windows Recovery. I can't safe mode it, and choosing previous working settings doesn't work either.

Help, please?
 

A:Video Card Failed to Initialize Compaq Presario 2200 Not Working

Did you try a Windows recovery or was it a System Restore? Have you tried 'Last Known Good Configuration'?

Upon boot tap the F8 key and when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.

If it works try updating your video driver.

Hello, my name is Alexander. I am new here.

I just decided to turn on my laptop to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight. First I pressed the power button to turn on the laptop and it blinked, the battery light also blinked. As I remember the battery was charged, so I decided to turn it on again. After pressing the button, the COMPAQ boot screen appeared but suddenly all the screen gone gray for some unknown reason. I pressed and held the power button for 10 seconds but nothing happened. Then I removed the battery but the laptop didn't turned off. Now, I leaved the laptop for 3 hours and it didn't shut down.

Last night it worked fine. I was playing Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 and listening to some Guns 'n' Roses songs.

RAM: 2GB.
Graphics card: Mobile Intel 4 Series Chipset.
Processor: 2GHz.

Hold the power button for 15 seconds or until the computer shuts off. Let it set for a few minutes. Put the battery in and make sure you are using the power adapter too. Start the computer. If it won't boot normally press the F8 key repeatedly until you can boot into Safe Mode.

Sounds like the flexible connector between the screen and motherboard has given up, probably with use?

It would need disassembly and replacement of the flexible mylar circuit. Could possibly just be a connection issue at one end or the other, which still requires disassembly.

Working on a laptop is akin to microsurgery, it is very easy to do damage if untrained.

Hi All,

Hope you can help me.

I have a Compaq Presario C300 Laptop which i am working on.

The screen is faint so at 1st i thought it would be the backlight or the inverter. I changed the inverter to a new working one and no change was seen. I then changed the screen to a working one and that still didn't fix the problem.

I have hooked up the computer to an external monitor and it works fine.

I now am unsure what the problem can be other than the cable.

Can anyone else give me an idea as to what the problem is?

I was working on a customer s laptop a Compaq CQ that refused to boot into windows and System screen boot CQ60 no HDD Compaq after test Presario black BIOS Recovery disabled all recovery options except for Command Prompt On a hunch after pressing Escape during BIOS boot I selected HDD Test The test ran and failed with quot Replace Hard Drive quot OK the laptop sat there for a few minutes and never did anything else so I tried to get out of that screen Nothing responded so I just held the Power button to turn the computer off When I pressed Power again to turn the computer back on the Power and Wireless LEDs comes on the CD drive is accessed and then the HDD LED lights up for a second and goes Compaq Presario CQ60 black screen no BIOS boot after HDD test out The screen never comes up nor do the backlights I have tried hooking up an external monitor but that never shows anything either I have tried taking the memory out cleaning the contacts putting them back in swapping the modules around booting with one or the other No effect I pulled the battery and the CMOS battery unplugged AC and let it sit for a good half hour I held the Power button for thirty seconds Plugged the CMOS battery back in then the AC Turned it on and still no go I cannot figure out WHAT could have happened Any other ideas Thanks nbsp

hey i recently got a compaq presario v6000 from a friend and when i turned it on for the first time i noticed that it made 3 short beeping sounds which i found out that it doesnt have a bios image but anyway the power light a battery light flashes and then reboots but i cant see anything on the screen at all when its powered on. also the fans power on for at least 2 seconds then they turn off. i dont have a hard drive but i need to at least get to the bios so i can reinstall the os using usb drive.

any help would be great and aslo people have been telling me that my motherboard could be warped how would i fix this without buying a new one because i have no money at all for the laptop.

It looks like you may have Bad Ram: Compaq BIOS Beep Codes - BIOS Central.
Computer Does Not Start and Emits an LED or Beep Code Compaq Presario SR5510F Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) Or it could be the Video adapter on the motherboard. Try removing one stick of RAM and get to the Bios. You can also download the ISO image for Memtest in my signature burn the image to CD with IMGBurn also in my signature or USB and boot off of the disc and run the tests on each stick of RAM separately.

NOTE THIS IS A COPY OF MY POST ON THE COMPAQ FORUM getting desperate Hi i bought a b from a company auction Everything worked perfect for the longest time Then last week i went to go turn it on and all it does is run the CPU fan for a couple seconds flash the AC LED about - times and while thats flashing the power and hard drive LED s stay solidly lit Then it completely turns off This all lasts about seconds at the most That s what happens when on battery power When on AC power the same thing BIOS Compaq boot Presario and on - powers off wont no repeatedly - screen 6150b happens except it continues doing the cycle over and over again until I unplug it I think it might have something to do with the LCD monitor since it does not even show a slight flicker at all No color Compaq Presario 6150b wont boot - no BIOS screen - powers on and off repeatedly change like it would from when turned off to a black back lit screen when turning on simply nothing I opened her up no warranty anyways and checked all the connections for the keyboard monitor DVD drive etc also reseated them as well with no luck Pulled the both RAM modules and reseated them as well nothing Pulled the battery as well no change Still cycles the same over and over again while on AC There are no audible errors codes real nice HP and im lost at this point Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated nbsp

A:Compaq Presario 6150b wont boot - no BIOS screen - powers on and off repeatedly

I think instead of just pulling and replacing the CMOS battery you might purchase a new one and install it. Proceed from there. If you get a screen and it's still has a problem try a new PSU. Jazz

Got a problem with a compaq presario CQ56, in that whenever I log on to my main profile, it will start normally, and the desktop and icons will appear for a second, after which all the icons disappear and a few seconds later, so does the background, leaving me with a blank white screen. All the programs seem to work fine though, just "underneath" the white screen, as when I ctrl+alt+del, it returns to how it should be untilI perform an action

So far I've tried restarts, full shutdowns, emergency shutdowns(battery removal), switching users back and forth just about everything from taking it apart, which I don't think needs to be done

Any and all help would be appreciated
 

A:White "cover" on screen (compaq presario cq56)

If you can, try hooking the laptop to a computer monitor (should have a video input jack on the side somewhere) and booting the computer, then hitting FN until you get a picture on the monitor.

EDIT: I missed a few elements of the original post, sorry

How do you access the Bios on a Compac Presario 4110. I keep getting the message 162 Sytems Options not set. 163 Time and Date not set. Having visited Compac they were not a lot of help. Downloading the software recommeded by them was a waste of time, still got the above message. Tried all the usual keystrokes etc no good. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:compaq presario

does your system have agp or pciex (or even pci) slot free? Is the graphics on board? It sounds like a graphics card problem, even if it is onboard. I'd try a replacement card (even if it's just a pci card) and see what happens...

A:Compaq Presario

I decided to see what happened when I ctrl alt delete and then decided to do another recovery. Here's some more info (could not recover errors):
1. C:\WINDOWS\Help\SB\Training\WXPPer\Content\Wave\[email protected]
2. C:\WINDOWS\System32\ntdll.dll
3. C:\WINDOWS\System32\ntkrnlpa.exe
4. C:\WINDOWS\32\dllcache\dinput8.dll
5. C:\Windows\systme32\dllcache\licdll.dll
6. C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\locator.exe
7. C:\WINDOWS\system32\viaservc.dll
9. (Black screen instead of error message)
9. C:\WINDOWS\Installe152ec/msi
10. C:\WINDOWS\Installer\1b2cc.msi

then all of after about 20% a big blue screen with following:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. IF this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced startup options, and then select safe Mode.
