I was working on a customer's laptop, a Compaq CQ60, that refused to boot into windows and System 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 "Replace Hard Drive." 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 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...

Hi!  My wife's laptop no longer takes a charge from the power supply.  I have tried different batteries and different power bricks.  No charge.  I want to try replacing the motherboard (thinking it may well be the power jack that isn't working.)  Can anyone tell me what the correct model number is for my motherboard?  I see several out there to buy including 498462-001 and 501266-001.  Are either of these the correct one? Thanks,Tom.

Hi and welcome to the Forum. So you took a HD from one laptop to another with the original Windows 7 loaded up? If that is the case then you have an OEM Windows 7 that is only licensed for the PC that it was originally loaded into. It is not legal to use it on another machine.

Hello,
 
I own a Compaq Presario CQ60-400SD running Windows Vista SP2 (32 bit), which is the original installed OS in my system (came pre-installed). I bought the laptop in 2009 (October or November, I can't recall exactly when), and about three weeks ago I reinstalled the OS. I also installed a new memory dimm (1GB).
 
The CPU is an AMD Sempron SI-42 2.10 GHz and the Video Card is Nvidia GeForce 8200M G.
 
After I reinstalled the OS, about every 4 - 5 days I experience BSODs in different occasions. I mainly use my laptop for work, with software such us AutoCAD, QGIS and HEC-RAS (hydraulics analysis software).

 Hello, this is my first post at HP and I will try to explain it the best as I know.All started when I installed Windows 10 Enterprise 64Bits at this notebook, Compaq Presario CQ60-120ES.As default the video driver was with alert but it was not problem at all because the screen was working witha basic Window Driver and after try to find online driver to the video device It was installed a very good driver,but,...But, after a few weeks I understood that, when I closed the screen and open it again, after the hibernation orsuspend, the screen was always color black, the computer awake always but the screen was black, then I pressed the power on ten seconds to completely power off the notebook and then I could turn on as always. A good day I decided to fix the issue with closing/open the screen and black screen as result, then I returned to install Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bits. I was very happy surprised when the Windows 7 installation finishes, becausethe first that I did it was close and open the screen, and now was working very well. I did not know if the main problem was at the video device driver or in some differences between energy administration of Windows 10 and Windows 7. Then I follow the first thread, the video driver. I downloaded three video drivers to FV598EA#ABE to the intel graphics solution, one to Windows Vista 32 bit and two to Windows 7, one for 32 and other for 64 bit. Finally I returned to install Windows 10, the unique driver that I was enable... Read more

as far as i know, if you can type in your password on the log-on screen then the keyboard is working, if the problem would appear after logging in or it will appear when you are on your desktop screen then it may be an operating system problem or a user account corruption issue the keyboard would only be a hardware failure if when you turn on your nb, there will be no ligts on teh keyboard, capslock key will not lit or no response at all from the moment you turn on the nb for the touchpad, try to check if its off or on... if there is an orange light above the touchpad then its off, toggle the switch on that light to turn it to blue.. so before anything else..

There are strange noises coming from the inside of my laptop. It makes a crackly noise like static and a screeching noise like a fax machine or an old modem.

It doesn't happen all the time, but it's worrying me. There's a history to this. I bought a laptop a couple of weeks before Christmas, but it seized up and refused to boot either normally or from the recovery drive. This happened within 2 days of buying it and shortly after hearing noises like those I've got now.

The first one couldn't be repaired but it was exchanged, no-quibble - immediately, so I've had this one for a few weeks. The fact that I'm hearing strange noises now from this replacement makes me think that either it's normal and was nothing to do with the crash, or that this model has a failing somewhere. I've googled and can't see anything relating to either.

Any ideas?
 

A:Compaq Presario CQ60 - strange noises from inside

Take it back and let them hear it. It's up to them to make good on whatever purchase you've made. They may well have had more than one complaint on these particular laptops and know there's issue with the bunch of them. Don't be concerned about getting what you've paid for. Jazz
No this shouldn't be happening.

Well for some reason, this morning it all started.

Okay, so I load up the screen, and it says

"Windows Error Recovery"
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

And it has options for...
Launch Startup Repair
Start Windows



I tried the Launch Startup Repair, but it gets stuck at the screen, and nothing pops up. Theres just a mouse.

And if I hit Start Windows, it all goes well, but then after it starts windows, before I get to the login screen, it quickly flashes to a blue screen with text on it for a few milliseconds, and then just goes ALL the way back to the Windows Error Recovery.

Can I get some help here?
Thanks.

I had the same problem as well... I was able to boot up in strictly safemode no networking and back up all my documents and then re-install windows. My restore points were not active so I couldn't go that path of attack to fix the problem. after the re install was finished and 1 round of update were done I continued to do the second round of updates from then it BSODed... luckily system restored worked this time and I am guessing one of the updates are affecting the compaq presario CQ60 models... this is very upsetting. I am also now setting up a Ubuntu partition and thinking I will use that primarily from now on... I hope my story can help you out or give someone an idea to help you out.

Hi.  I'm trying to find out for my brother if his Compaq Presario CQ60-210US laptop, which is running  a  Vista 32-bit OS, can be upgraded to a 64-bit version/editon of Windows like 7, 8/8.1 or 10?   As stated, the laptop's OS is  Vista 32-bit and I think its Vista Home Premium, but I'm not sure.  It has 4GB of RAM which is the max for a 32-bit OS.   I realize that you cannot do an in-place upgrade from a 32-bit OS to a 64-bit OS and that a clean install will be necessary, but does anyone know if this laptop's hardware, BIOS etc. support 64-bit operating systems?  Thanks.

Hello SanfordHouse... I'm sorry you're having this problem with your 8510p. You can find instructions to reset the password in the Maintenance and Service Guide.  If you are comfortable following these steps, here's what you can do:Shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the computer is off or in Hibernation, turn the computer on, and then shut it down through the operating system.Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer.Disconnect the power from the computer by first unplugging the power cord from the AC outlet and then unplugging the AC adapter from the computer.Remove the battery (see Battery on page 50).Remove the real-time clock (RTC) battery (see RTC battery on page 80).Wait approximately 5 minutes.Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer.Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any batteries at this time.Turn on the computer.All passwords and all CMOS settings have been cleared.If you're not comfortable following these steps, contact HP Support for your country / region and they can assist you in getting the laptop serviced. Good luck! DISCLAIMER: I am an HP employee, but I am not a spokesperson for HP.If you found this information helpful, please take a moment to click on "Accept as Solution".If you'd like to say thanks, please click on the Kudos star!

My friend's Compaq Presario CQ60-105EF lost its SATA driver due to a Trojan via MSN- I've backed up her data and am trying to re-install her Vista Basic, but the install can't see the Toshiba MX1652GSX HDD - Just says no IDE drive detected.

The BIOS doesn't have a SATA enable/disable option visible. I've been to the vendor's download pages. No unpacked drivers are available. The updated and original BIOS flash wants to be run from inside the working operating system, as does the updated optical drive software. I'm trying to re-install Vista from a bootable USB. I have to copy the drivers to a USB key and the install won't read the exe file downloaded from Compaq.

Can anybody help? Either a method to convert and flash the BIOS from USB or USB floppy, or just a SATA driver so the system can see the HDD and recover from within Vista? The data on the hdd doesn't seem to be corrupted, but no driver backups .

Thanx for reading. Please help if you have ideas.

I have an old Compaq Presario MV540 that I use just for games. It's running on Windows XP.
I had two user accounts on the computer that were password protected. Somehow, my lovely brother figured out my password and got into my account. He then changed my password along with his password. Then he forgot both of them (what a genius). We tried unsuccessfully to figure out the passwords for sometime. When that didn't work, he kept pressing random buttons (he just keeps getting smarter) and somehow, he set a COMPUTER password. So when we turn on the computer, it won't even go to the account page now. It has a black screen and asks us to type in a "Computer password" which he doesn't know. I'd like to get this ordeal over with and just reset the whole computer (nothing on there is worth saving anyway). We don't have any recovery CDs or the Windows XP CDs anymore as we had thrown them out when we got a Mac for general usage.
How can we resolve this? Can I do anything without a recovery CD? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi and Welcome,

You need to get the BIOS from Compaq. While the board maybe MADE by another company, who knows what slight changes to the specs were made.

When you do your next upgrade, build your own and get a real BIOS.

Hello! I'm new here to these forums hoping to find a solution to this problem that has been bugging me for days and keeping me from setting up my computer.

Basically after several years, I am finally dealing with the loss of my Hard-Disk drive that came with my computer. I have bought a new Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ as a replacement, and I am having trouble setting it up. Here are a few Specs for my computer:

Compaq Presario SR1303WM
AMD Sempron 3000+
BIOS Revision 3.11
Mother Board: ASUS A7V8X-LA

It's a bit of an older computer. The HDD that failed me used the old ATA standard, and I am going from that to SATA II (3 Gb/s). My motherboard does have two SATA ports on it, but I don't think the motherboard supports 3 Gb/s transfer rate. Only 1.5 Gb/s. I have an SATA cable that connects directly from the HDD to the MoBo as well as a power converter that I use to connect power to the new HDD. I am using a jumper on the fifth and sixth pins ::[:]: <--- looks like that. The reason I am using a jumper is because I have read by other people that this puts the device into the 1.5 Gb/s mode, although I'm not entirely sure. The Samsung manual my HDD came with says that in order to put the drive into this mode, you must download and use their software from their site, www.samsung.com/hdd which I have tried and failed. When I run Samsung's software, I get the error: "Error reading from drive L: data area: drive not ready (A)bort, (R)etry, (F)ail?"... Read more

I have a Compaq Presario 2200 model laptop.

I have an issue where every time by laptop batter discharges the time clock resets. I believe that this is realated to the bios battery. I have taken the laptop appart properly via guide provided on compaq website. This is the maintenance guide with all the spare part numbers listed. However, this laptop is out of warranty.

My problem is that I cannot locate the bios battery anywhere on the board. Could someone with some experience pleae review the diagram for this model and tell me where the battery is?


Thanks,
Darmin

First of all.

Have you tried to calibrate the battery by BIOS? < This might help a lot of problems.

Second

Have you updated your BIOS ?
