the battery is a 47wh, 6 cell,lithium ion battery
this is a battery pack made up of 6 separate batteries and what you have a indicates that one of those batteries is failing
you will need to get the new pack to fix the problem
go on line to Compaq web site spares to get a new one or search on e-bay-- battery for Compaq laptop make sure that you charger is charging before you order as well

its PC,
PC have many layers, of resets. (not counting lost BIOS passwords of any kind,, that adds to the list , )
layer 1, is BIOS reset, seen clearly in the BIOS pages.
says there, go back to factory defaults (just BIOS)
layer, 2: windows, but you never said which one? XP,Vista, W7/8/10?

To reset windows, there is no such thing, in windows at all.
ask MS that and get that answer, (then tells how, with media)
That means the actual windows, running has no reset.
(but one can spend a week or life time cleaning it....)

what does this RESET, is the HP recovery process.
AKA: reLOADING windows from scratch.

the next step for me is carbon dating your PC,
it's 12 years old now, 2006
but that is the CUSP year that HP started doing F11 KEY recoveries.

so that means i must read the manual to you
here goes.
bingo Page B12. see link at end, 1st google hit, btw.
power on and hammer F11, key verbatim.
this works and takes you back to 2006 with all data gone (yours)
and all added APPS gone, not HP apps there DAY1, those be OK
(reality 101)
now how can this fail, sure, easy as cherry pie it can
here is the list.
  • you changed out the HDD from 2006 to now,
  • you upgraded the PC OS not using HP disks or HP media kits. (boom)
  • your HDD is bad. run full disk tests now. most this old are bad
  • the HDD partition called HP recovery is damaged. super common on 12 year old PC.
  • the PC is sick, (huge list here , hardware!!)

Im guessing you meant black screen totally never text there.
does the monitor work on other PC as it must?? simple no?
if yes, it is good and the unstated PC is bad.
if not, the monitor is bad, if this old monitor is very old
2 things fail.
1: CCFL lamps inside all died long ago. 2010 or older.
2: the screen saver inside IT is turned on, turn that off.
push the menu button on the LCD monitor.
then in the OSD turn off sleep TIMER clock..

lets say unstated PC is dead.
1: is the fans dead,? if desktop 2 fans must be good, spin and blow air and not be packed up in lint as most old PC are.
heard ,seen to turn, and felt to blow.(air flow must happen)
2: does the DVD tray eject.

what Linux
non stated, of 100s.
why post lacking such key facts.
NO PC sated, just a nebuluas complaq.
no OS stated, just linux something
why not ask on YOUR linux forum.
try Ubuntu? yet?
best is to match PC old to Linux old.
but be impossible for me to guess what PC you own.

ok we finally get the model
"Cq61 420us" made 2009, not too old.
I cant see your screen to be sure where it is locked. this PC has UEFI technology
and as such and turned on , only HP can unlock this device.


the exact message seen is not stated
"user lock codes" bios or windows locked?
do you see the windows login screen at all?
now we go to HP, they own COmpaq.100%
and ask

HP has a support page

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/compaq-presario-cq61-400-notebook-pc-series/4074240/model/4121168/manuals


ask HP.com how to reset it.
there is a way, but fixya is NOT HP.Com
sorry, we are not HP.

ask here

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/searchpage/tab/message?q=Cq61+420us&collapse_discussion=true



see others asking there?
sure.

did you do the HP long reset first?
battery large out
then line cord off
push power on for 30 seconds
release.
not use just AC power , as the 9 year old battery will be bad, and worse shorted.
leave the huge battery out for now. run on AC>
then tell the helper all words on the screen
all logos. all graphics seen there,
even if the w7 log on screen shows.
then we can proceed.

CQ57 what, it has full service tag.
what is the tag tell you. post that please.
http://pcdied.com/TAG-jive/tag.html


with that the manual on your PC is 100x time more easy to find
on that matches perfectly is the correct book.
and then all things you can push is covered

here is my wild guess. this?>
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/compaq-presario-cq57-200-notebook-pc-series/5091489/model/5111956/manuals


are you asking for all keys to glow in the dark
or asking how to type blindly in the dark, be so nice of you to tell why you need this feature, no?
or only the normal keys,
caps lock.
Num lock.
name a key or some.
the above manual shows no such thing
why do you expect this.?
others have it and you dont and therefore want it?
others have differnent PCs.
others have disktop and then bought $100 keyboard that does that from CORSAIR. like mine ,now.

If prompted, try 46090204

If another number other than 59392622, try entering it in the following web site to get another number generated.

Compaq Computers... | 157 views | 1 helpful votes


when does this error happen
1: boot black screens before the windows login screen.?
2: after boot and login, and disktop shows.?
3: does it only happen running apps. or running IE11.
4: only doing what? fill in the blank here _______?


but this PC is 10 years old
and needs a new RTC coin cell.
and you need to run HDD tests, if it dont boot.

terry's link above is correct one to real HP.
and very good.
but COMPAQ facts are hard to find today.
this old.

is this a BIOS password screen , showing system disabled, if yes that is only cured by direct help from HP ,they have a magic back door password
for all old PC by them (HP/compaq)
next time show a photo of errors, 10x more easy.
to answer....

this is not a Spanish site. sorry
why post in the wrong language.?
here, i google trans late it for you;.

This PC is 16 years old and is useless.!
My guess running the first version of XP OS, (hopeless)
"My computer and I put a black screen that design safe mode mode with network safe mode with command prompt and in start windows normally and a count of 30 seconds appears ... and turns on as if it were to enter but do the same thing who can help me please ..." answer this PC is super old, buy a newer PC 2008 or newer.
your pc has zero street value, even worse dead.
spend money on newer PC.

NO PC stated.
W7-32 or 64bit? is that PC running 64bit OS?
if yes,do you expect to use 2000 Fortran to load and even work under that? 18 years old disks? why?
why not buy new compiler for modern PC's?
the only hope, is to run Setup.exe
in COMPAT mode.
right click the EXE. on CD. (properties)
pick cOmpat tab
run this program in compat mode.. check the box.
the pick what? XP ?
OMG, windows 2000? (that is what this was made for in 2000 year, windows 2000.

the relic instructions still pollute the internet
per here. and is a very buggy program.

https://www.cs-software.com/software/fortran/compaq/cvf_relnotes.html

recap.
try the CD on other PC,? if that fails, CD is bad.?
if that works maybe your CD in the first PC the CD drive is bad.?
or that PC w7 is infected.
or that PC is running 64bit and some 32bit programs do flat fail to run on 64bit PCs, for many reasons,
and for sure compilers that can not recognize that
modern processor you have, 18 years newer.

I bet its upgrade time, a new compiler.

If still under warranty suggest have it repaired.
Most computers out of warranty also have out of date software and are not worth spending funds on.
Suggest upgrade to a new machine.
