Old compaq? 2700 old old relic. 17 years old today (2001 made)
packed full of lint do dought.!!! and overheating.
windows what? xp to 10, what? please do not post.
F8 tell me, its w7? we hope
it came with windows 2000 or XP that is for sure.
what is it now? click control panel, then system
or tell me oldest date of files in C:/windows folder.
XP was born in 2001.

XP is virus magnet and all are infected with 700 exploites +++
a counting and not supported by MS.com
vasta has no self repair modes and is doomed for that 1 reason.
W7 has legs, is it w7? is it running IE11," if yes its W7
self shuts down fans and screen goes black,>?
no errors to screen
no text errors,
no beeping no blinking caps lock led codes.
steps that work on all old PCs like this.

  1. remove that 17 year old shorted huge batter and leave it out.
  2. now the RTC coin cell is bad, not one ever ran 17 year ever.
  3. next we clean all that lint out of all vents and RAD and fan or it will overheat for sure and all PCs shut off if overheated.,
  4. Next test HDD, if its dead no repairs are possible so we fix that next.
  5. then load linux best on this old PC, or w7 might work but costs $120 to try it. no free try like W10, at all,

clean all vents
all oF big RAD
and fan blades.

SOURCE: Compaq notebook won't boot up

Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: windows will not start up

choose start windows in Safe mode, if it starts then everything will look big, don't worry about that for now. Then go to Start>accessories>system Tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that everything was working normally, when it has finished restoring the computer will restart. If asked choose start windows normally.

I hope this helps

It turns into blue screen with white texts and from below, its says terminating (memory-something) and has a countdown... and reboots itself. computer: Compaq Presario PC SR5050NX


Its probably saying memory dump and the countdown. This is mostly encountered after some kinda change on the pc. It can be new hardware, software or just plain windows update. Lots of times it ends up being a corrupt driver. Try to boot in to safe mode and see doe sit still do same thing. if not than you know it is software related and you can do system restore. To boot in to safe mode on reboot keep on tapping key F8 and choose safe mode. Once in safe mode if it works go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools and choose system recovery. choose like a week back and click next and this will do a restore to when pc was working, fine. If you cant boot into safe mode it is possible it has issues with hardware and this should be checked out by a pc repair shop. Another option you can try if same mode dont work try to do same thing on boot keep on tapping key F8 and instead choosing safe mode try choosing Last Known Good Configuration. this is similar to restore. Hope this helps.

LCD Monitor (Model Number M17FBA) Signal Out of Range


Hi
Start the computer in SAFE mode. F8 before Windows starts. Once in SAFE mode change the screen resolution to 600 X 480. Do this by right clicking anywhere on the desktop. Once done then reboot into normal mode.

I brought my hp about 2 years ago it worked for about a month now im trying to fix it but when it comes on it goes to the screen where it asksstart windows normally how do i reboot


You can choose to start windows normally and it should bring you to regular desktop. If not to reboot you actually have to shut it off by holding down power button until it shuts off. If still issue try to boot in to safe mode by pressing F8key on boot up and keep on pressing it till advanced start up comes up. Once in safe mode try to run virus scan to see is there any viruses. Also in same menu there is safe mode with networking if you choose this one you can do updates since it will allow you to go online even that you are in safe mode. This might resolve the issue.Hope this helps.

MY COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000 WILL NOT OPEN WINDOWS XP.


Does your desktop comeup and give any time before it shutdowns, say 1 minute or something like that,
You can log into safe mode and do system restore by pressing F8 once you power on the computer, but you need to keep on pressing till you see the safe mode option.
