HP Compaq Presario C700 OS/Software :: Blue Screen Error - Installing 4GB RAM
Nov 19, 2014
I just recently removed vista and upgraded to Win7 32 bit. I tryed to add 4gb of RAM, due to the factory 1gb it came with. However got a Blue screen Error. After that I only installed 1 of/ 2gb stick of RAM and it worked.
My question is, I need 4gb of RAM for this c700, Should I update the Bios for Win 7. By doing so will the c700 allow me to install the 4gb of RAM and work?
I own the Compaq presario laptop and in October it started giving me problems. I would get a blue screen with an error warning. This progressively got worse. It seems the only way I can get my computer to even power up is to lay it on it's side. Yesterday I resinstalled the restore disc. Now (still with it laying on its side) I am getting an error called Windows Boot manager. It says, "Windows failed to start, a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix this problem, insert the windows installation disc and restart computer." I did a computer check on the hard drive when it was up a few days ago, and it seems to be fine. I am running windows vista.
I'm An Acer Aspire 6930G user and it has vista home premium installed as OS. Today When I was trying to install Windows Xp on it A blue Error Screen Appear in the beginning of windows installing...I tried with 3 different Xp cd's but still the same problem.
Here's the full form of what that blue screen says:
The problem has detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage on your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow this steps:
Check for viruses in your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers.Check your hard drives to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
I am so much happier with this notebook than I was with my Presario C714NR.
Why; Upgraded Intel GMA 4500M 768MB Max VRAM VS. 384MB on C700 GMA x3100 Upgraded support for 8GB Max Memory VS. 3GB with the C700 **Some G/CQ's can only handle 4GB 15.6" Screen not really a big deal from the 15.4" C700 HDMI Port VS. none on the C700 Media Card is standard in the G series.. VS. optional in C700 series. Discrete Graphics offerings available for the G series and CQ-Series VS. integrated only C700 G/CQ offers shiny black top finish. C700 More grainy finish. Better gaming performance, however, not really a gaming laptop.
HP has made some great improvements to the Compaq offering, however compaq will always lack some of the premium features like FingerPrint reader......
i have Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC and the oporating system was vista (when i brought it) and degrade it to XP and no sound was in it i followed the steps on the page [url]and now the sound work but no input I.G. no microphone just sound.
I have 5 compaq presario c700 laptops, but i can only use one for wifi!!?? I have down loaded all the networking drivers from this site but the Atheros AR5007 802.11bg wi-fi adapter will not install stating 'driver is not intended for this platform' . I can put the hard drive that works with the wi-fi into any of the machines and the wifi works ok on all machines.
All of the wi-fi cards are the same. I had sorted this problem before but i have forgotten how i done it.
My troubles are as follows: I started working on a presario v6130us laptop with a blue screen. The owner thought it was due to a virus when she opened a email. I went and wiped the HD and reinstalled windows XP pro. Had the darn thing working nicely.
Then I thought he computer was running a lil slow, so I decide to update the bios. From (I believe) v.07 to ver.29 from the hp website. At the restart, it never restarted, so I restarted it by pressing power button. Went into the same ol blue screen loop. The stop message is 0x0000007b. I looked that variable up on the microsoft webpage. It says it is a Win 2000 unmountable boot device. Prior to this message it was Stop 0x000000ED.
Does anyone know how to roll the bios back, or what could be causing this problem? I have done a quick HD test. so far it has passed and is now doing the "executing" test @ 20% complete. B4 the bios update, the test would say FAIL 1- 07.
My compaq presario CQ71 notebook fires up, tells me it's loading window files then just hangs on a blue screen forever. I've tried every possible route via all F-key functions without any success, including factory re-set but still nothing.
I can't get my presario c700 to connect to the internet. only get local connection. I have tried using compaq's website, microsoft, and atheros website. Nothing is working. I've downloaded a bunch of different drivers. I've found multiple forums with links to drivers that worked, but when I click on them they can't be found. Getting extremely frustrated. All of my other devices connect fully so I know its not my router.
I've got a problem with a Compaq C700. When the laptop is powered on the LCD is showing a screwed up image, when I plug an external monitor in the picture is fine on that screen. I purchased a replacement screen, but that shows the same image.
I have a compaq presario, product name "Presario C700" and p/n "FE934UA#ABA." The operating system is Windows Vista. I have internet from Comcast and the router I am using is Netgear. I recently moved to a new place and am having trouble connecting to the Wifi at home. I've had this laptop for several years now and have been able to connect to some wifi in the past, but there have been times when I haven't been able to connect to wifi in some public places. I am able to connect to the wifi on my phone and another laptop but not this one. I have tried resetting the router and numerous other steps but nothing seems to resolve the problem. Every time I try to connect, it says that the signal strength is excellent, but it is unable to identify the network and says that "the router is unavailable." I have already called my router company but they were not able to resolve the problem. The only way I can connect to the internet is using an ethernet cord.
I bought a Compaq Presario CQ60-211DX because it was cheap and I wanted a "backup" machine as I paid way too much for my MacBook to get "rough" with it (i.e. travel, put it in a full bookbag, take it to my school in a relatively high crime area, etc).
Well, basically you get what you pay for because this machine seems to run slower than molasses.
However, an annoying problem has popped up in that there seems to be a blue-streaked "tint" that started on pics and some video, that now exists on regular webpages as well. I haven't smashed the screen or spilled liquid on it. I have a 1 year warranty on it that's still good, but I'd rather try to fix it myself.
I have tried to install XP Home on my Acer 6920g but with no success.
I made an XP disk with the sata drivers via Nlite which was recognised, installed the OS but on first boot the laptop gives me the BSOD but as it is so quick I am unable to get any error code. The laptop will not boot on safe mode either which makes me think there is a physical (hardware) issue that doesn't like XP.
I keep getting blue screens complaining about igdpmd64.sys x00000050. I noticed on the day that I suddenly started getting blue screens Windows installed a bunch of windows 7 x64 updates. Does the recent windows updates can cause this?
At times I cannot even reboot normally when it occurs. I have had to restore to a previous version.
I've had my XPS 17 for a week and have run into problems. Initially, I had no problems but two days after owning the machine, picked up the first: I opened up the laptop lid and was met by a message, the gist of which was 'Windows has recovered from a blue screen error' . I rebooted and put that message in my 'lets wait and see if that happens again' memory bank.
Things went well after that until I tried installing and using a game, which would have been the first time I'd used my GT 555M graphics card in anger. Installation went well but after starting the game, the screen started flickering, messages started appearing in the bottom right hand corner of the screen saying 'graphics has malfunctioned but recovered', or something to that effect, then the laptop crashed.
I tried updating drivers (I'm 100% sure they were compatible with my card) and this made my laptop even more unstable, throwing freeze after freeze, blue screen after blue screen and refusal to boot or shut down at me.
I decided to start from scratch and did a complete factory settings restore and upon first switch on (the laptop does it's 'setting up for first use' routine) was met with a blue screen error. The error details were as follows:
Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID: 2057Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 116 BCP1: FFFFFA800BF95010 BCP2: FFFFF8800F438EA8 BCP3: 0000000000000000 BCP4: 0000000000000002 OS Version: 6_1_7601 Service Pack: 1_0 Product: 768_1
The laptop then rebooted itself and seemed to run just fine. I checked the device manager and it appears windows has shut down my GT 555M card as it was reporting problems.
I ran Dell diagnostics prior to the full factory restore and beside the fact it didn't pick up the GT 555M (it did test the Intel HD3000 and that was fine), it said all was fine.
I have just rerun the diagnostics after the restore and it seems the DVD drive is now having issues too:
OPU Test - not supported Spindle Test - not supported Tray Out Test - not supported
My machines details:
Model Dell System XPS L702X Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-bit)
I have a HP Compaq Presario CQ56-112SA Notebook which has WIndows 7 Home Edition OS. I would like very much to install Ubuntu 12.04 OS on its own partition to dual boot with Windows. However, my understanding is that the Notebook has 4 primary partitions on the HDD that are already used and therefore no more partitions can be made. I can shrink the 'C' drive partition to make space but I understand I also have to free up a whole partition. I know I can install Ubuntu 'Inside' Windows but I would rather not.
Some contributors say one can safely delete HP-Tools to provide a partition for Ubuntu but others advise not to because HP-Tools contains a BIOS recovery kit which, they say, is essential.
few days back dell inspiron's windows got crashed.
I can reinstall But at the same time i will also lose my data.
is there any way I can get the window problem fixed keeping data safe at the same time
Model - Inspiron N5110 Error: windows recovery error initially (Blue screen) but now (Black Screen) which reads:File: BootBCDStatus: 0xc000000fInfo An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data
I tried to use repair option but didnt work as it said there is no system image...
Every time I start my laptop Inspiron n5110, it goes to the blue error screen where it says 'collecting data for crash dump'. It usually happens in under a minute after starting the laptop. Once the screen shows I have to force restart by pressing the power key for few seconds.
