so my compaq presario cq57 running windows 7 has had this problem where when every i try to reboot it, it powers down the screen but the power button light is still on and a couple other lights too. then it just stays like that and it doesnt turn off or on unless i hold the power button. everything is up to date as well.
I got a Compaq Presario CQ57-400SO I want to install with Windows XP instead of Windows 7, which is included. I've got two questions now since I've hit some bumps.
1. Is there any, at all, driver support for Windows XP to get a hold of?
2. How am I supose to boot from USB (my DVD-ROM is broken)? + Have converted my Windows XP installation disc to USB. - I've tried changing the boot order, and no, the USB isn't marked with ! so it should work. - I've tried pressing F9 which gets me to the Boot Option Menu. But once I press the USB drive it just goes straight to Windows (the pre-installed).
I have a Compag Presario CQ57 with windows7, "it said that the profile couldn't be loaded," so the question is how do I get in my computer to open it up to work on this problem or resolve it or how do I over ride the guest side so that I can get in on that side I forgot the password I set up on that side. how to get into the other user side I forgot the login password for this guest side I set up.
I have a Compaq Presario CQ57 Laptop which has worked fine up until this morning as i cannot connect to the internet with wireless. I have re-started my laptop and checked the settings but i keep getting the same message telling me to turn the wireless on. The F12 is orange and remains orange and will not turn on or change colour.
After rebooting my system I now come to a screen to enter system password. Only thing is.. I never set this and there is no way around it.I have tried the take battery out reset CMOS trick that used to work in desktops to no avail.
This is the message I get after too many password attempts.
My Presario CQ57 (Windows 7 w/ AMD E-300 APU w/Radeon HD graphics) crashed and shut down the other night. Something to do with the display adapter, when I got it fired back up, my wifi wouldn't come on. When I push the wifi button (f12 key), it does nothing, and I can't find my wireless adapter listed in my Device Manager list.

I have a problem with my dv9700. When I try to turn it on, it lights up in the small blue LED's, but then reboots even before I see the BIOS booting, this it keeps on doing again and again.
I've come to the conclusion that it's some kind of hardware failure, but exactly which one it is, I don't know. I tried switching out the RAM but with no luck. Anyone here have a suggestion to what to do?
I have A LOT of very important data on the PC and I off cause have taken backups, but not recently.
Just installed a new har drive into my Compaq CQ57. Ordered the recovery disks from HP. Put the first disk in disk drive as instructed and turned power back on. Now I'm getting a "No bootable device - insert boot disk" message. I thought that was what I had gotten from HP? how to recover system and then reinstall Windows 7?
My friend has mess up his Acer Aspire 5520G. And I'm supposed to help him fix it. His laptop has a nVidia 8400 graphics card.
When the laptop is powered it keeps rebooting itselve evry 3-4 seconds, and nothing is displayed on the screen. I don't know what's wrong with my friend's laptop but I think it might be related to the BIOS been correpted in his laptop. He tried to flash the BIOS from VISTA.
Anyways, I got Crisis recovery disk, and the latest BIOS for his laptop, and I got also a USB floppy drive. I removed the harddrive and the optical drive to force the laptop to boot from the USB floppy drive. I removed the battery too.
I pushed Fn+Esc, plugged the charger in the laptop and powered the laptop. The laptop know doesn't reboot itself but doesn't detect the floppy drive either.
I used the floppy to make a boot CD and tried to flash the bios again using the DVD drive this time. Pushed Fn+Esc again. The laptop turns ON and try to read the CD for about 5 seconds and then nothing else happens.
1- Is it a BAD BIOS.
2- How to make a boot CD to use with Crisis Recovery.
I have never had problems before with my Dell Inspiron 1525 since I bought it in 2008, but 3 days ago I used it for a while and then shut it down to have lunch. When I wanted to turn it on again later it just didn't start my system, and rebooted infinitely. So I tried pressing F12 at startup to boot from my Windows 7 install DVD, but nothing happens, and the same with F2 and F8 to restore my backup. It only shows the Dell startup screen and reboots again and again.
What can I do? I am using the x64 version of Windows 7 and 4GB of RAM.
I have an aspire V5-572 notebook with win 8.1 and the only partition. I made 2 more partitions using AOMEI partitioning tool. after rebooting it shows the usual win 8 loading screen but no display comes then. complete blank screen and no desktop.
1. I assume the partitioning was done perfectly as there was no error message 2. OS loading accordingly without any warning or error message 3. At the black screen the mouse movement showing and sometimes the wifi symbol flashing up at the almost middle-bottom of the screen.
My brother has got an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop. When he tries to start the laptop he gets a blue screen with the error message contained in the attached file. When I try restarting and pressing F8 to enter Safe Mode it just continues to this screen.
It started happening after HP requested that he download some new software to his machine. He did so and this problem started. It was a popup on the screen which asked him to install new software.
I own an Acer Aspire 5742, model no. PEW71. It is running on Windows 7. I included a vid for you to see what the problem is: [URL] ....
So, as you can see, the computer can be turned on, but it doesn't get through the acer screen on to the windows picture, and it automatically reboots and shuts itself down again over and over again. This has happened in the past, but the repairers have reset the operating system and BIOS. They also switched the hard disk for a new one, but this could be because of some other problems I was having (USB channels weren't working).
Everything worked fine for a month or so, and then it happened again. I myself am thinking about the motherboard being damaged.When this happened in the past however, I was still able to turn on my PC sometimes, so I was also able to save my files. Now on the other hand, I can't get the computer on anymore. The most important thing to me is saving the files. After that, I'll take it away for reparation again, where they will probably delete everything again (I can't commicate with the repairers myself, so I can't discuss terms or anything).
At the end of the vid you can see me turning off the computer by pulling out the adapter. Removing both the adapter and accu is the only way the computer can be turned off. Even shutting it down by pushing the on/off button for 5 seconds will not prevent the auto re-boot.
I have a HP dv6-1133ea (in my sig). It has the broadcom wireless card. It is running windows 7 64 bit.
Just recently the wireless has started acting up. It can see my home network fine but just won't connect properly saying "no network connectivity" etc. I know that the network is fine as my partner's vaio (and incidentally my old Toshiba A30 that I am using to write this post) can connect fine.
I have tried re-installing the vista 64 driver from HP's website but that makes no difference. Turning the wireless on and off or restarting also doesn't change things. I have also tried re-adding the network key but that did nothing too.
Has anyone else had this problem or have any ideas what to do?
I've had this HDX since January, and have had nothing but problems whenever i tried to burn a dvd or cd.
The version of Nero i had isnt compatible with Vista, and im not getting the new one, so it took me forever to find some free soft. I've tried Astroburner, CDburnerXP, and Infrarecorder.
Astroburner: Constantly locks up, sometimes cant even see my drive, and if i CAN get it to burn something, it never completes it. it just sits there.
CDburnerXP: Is not compatible with my drive at all, it doesnt see it.
Infrarecorder: has given me the best results, i've burnt a few data CD's, that went smoothly. But today, i wanted to burn a DVD data disc with a whole bunch of AVI's, it spun up the disc, and then just sat there at 0%, disc spinning for 1 hour. Drive was locked, program locked, couldnt end task, NOTHING.
I had to hold the power button down to get it to stop.
I have got Notebook Compaq Presario.. I cant connect to the internet using the wireless connection.. the reason is that i accidentally did some operations, and cannot switch on the light on the front panel of the notebook.. it does not work, i mean the light of the wireless connection button does not light.... I turned off something...
i have a v3019us and it will not log into windows. It goes to login screen, enter password, then it says its loading settings but flashes straight to logging off and goes back to the login screen. it has xp home edition, and does the same thing in safe mode. tried restore disks but pc is telling me restore discs are for wrong model.
My ancient C500 fan is noisy, a constant slight grindy noise. Its been like this for months and I cant take it anymore. Can I clean or replace it w/o too much trouble or is it time for a new laptop? Looks like I'd have to take off the whole bottom to get at it...which Iwill do, if it will shut the damn thing up.
