Q: Solved: Compaq cq57 won't pass POST

So a friend brought me their laptop a Compaq cq57 and you press power button, fan kicks on, then caps lock starting flashing and the WiFi light stays orange and the fan stops, all while maintaining a pitch black screen. I removed battery held power waited 30 seconds and then put battery back in and still same issue. So what's the deal? Most anytime I have had blinking caps lock its either meet bad CPU or motherboard.......any ideas group?

My sister is having major problems with her Compaq Presario CQ57 (running Windows 7). I have been trying to help her with it but, I am about to literally throw it from a very high window. I'm thinking it has a malicious program lerking inside it. I am trying to get it into safe mode and am having a hell of a time. I want to do a scan on it and I believe it is better to be i safe mode.

There is no F8 option so that is out. I tried msconfig and computer says it can't find the file,(by the way it says that to any program I try to install). Since I can't get anything to install and everything I seem to try hits a brick wall I am at a lost on what to do. Every time someone gives me some advice on how to maybe fix this I can't seem to get past the first step!!!HELP!!!! She has only had the computer for a couple of months. This is her first brand new computer and it seems she has made a very bad choice!

Hi, my laptop key fell off the keyboard, and I cannot figure out how to pop it back in. Everything looks to be in working condition, and even the white plastic components have remained on the keyboard. Unfortunately, every single time I press down on the black key, it never actually clicks on.  I've come to the conclusion that there must be some unique process to re-adjusting a key on this notebook. I've searched around on keyboard websites, but their guides do not seem to directly address my situation. They usually end with just pressing down on the key, which does not work for my specific notebook, it'd seem. I'd appreciate any advice.

A:Compaq Presario CQ57 Laptop Key

Hello dear, once the the key is popped out the complete keyboard needs replacement.  So contact HP and tel them to replace the keyboard for you #hpexpertday

Processor - AMD E-300 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 1.30 GHz It was running very slow so I upgraded the Hard Drive to an SSD and increased the RAM to 8GB. I then did a clean install of WIN 10 64 bit. While this has improved the speed a little bit it is nowhere near as fast as I would have expected. The only software I am running at the moment is McAfee Anti-Virus and Firewall.

Thank you More replies Answer Match 67.2% I recieved a new Compaq Presario CQ57 notebook from my father-in-law who never used it. Unfortunately it had a bad hard drive right out of the box. Years had passed so no warranty. I replaced the HD with another of the same. The computer came with the disks so I thought this would be simple but alas as many things in my life things didn't go as planned. The disks supplied are the 2 disk version. The computer came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed. When starting the disks by rebooting the computer the top of the black screen says "starting Windows 98" and further down the same page it says "Error: unable to detect... ADAPI IDE CD-ROM device driver not loaded". Seems to load anyway and start up well with disk one but when it gets to the point that it asks if I have the 1 or 2 disk version I hit 2 and immediately it asks me to insert disk 2. Before doing so an error flashes up in the bottom left corner that says "no files found. Invalid drive specification". I obey and insert disk 2 but nothing happens except for flashing the same message. In a nutshell - no restore. I've searched the net for days trying to find and answer and came up with ideas but nothing specific. I have run all the Bios tests and all come out working well. Boot order is cd/dvd room first.

I'm wondering if you can help me with a problem. My girlfriend has a Compaq Presario CQ56 laptop, but the screen broke and she replaced it with a CQ57, which I guess is the next most advanced model in the line. However, the skype connection would drop after just a few minutes and then drop repeatedly afterward every couple seconds. Usually, all connected services (like AIM) would drop off too. So here's the weird thing - she returned it and got a replacement, and the replacement is doing the same thing. The CQ56, on the same network, can keep a skype call going for hours. But the 57 drops off fast, and we've tried two different units. I thought that maybe it could be a defective laptop the first time, but twice?

I can put everything into my mobo fine with it working other than my Mushkin ECO2 (11-11-11-28 (2x8G)) DDR3L ram. I have tried using one at a time and tried changing my Bios so the frequencies and voltage is right. I currently changed it to 11-11-11-28 1.5 V and 1600 MHZ all other settings are on auto. My Mobo is a Gigabyte Z97-HD3 and I know all the ram slots work because I used my other ram and it works fine in all slots. Thanks in advance A:Upgraded Ram won't pass Post test Did you check the approved list for ram on the support page for your mb? I just looked and no muskin ram is even listed. When you use parts that have not been tested and found to work, you are in effect a beta tester; might work and it might not work. Generally if you stay with major name brand ram ie corsair, crucial, or kingston, you do not have problems. On the support page, there is a beta bios that addresses memory compatibility. I generally never recommend using a beta bios however it would appear this is an option IF you want to use that ram. If it were me, I would return the ram and go with a name brand ie corsair, crucial, or kingston. Up to you. If you do decide to flash the bios, be SURE you read and FULLY understand the flashing procedure. While a bios update is not difficult, an incorrect flash can render your board unbootable ie junk. Many gigabyte boards [this one included] have the dual bios. This makes updating a bios almost idiot proof however do be sure you understand how to update the bios. Here is a link to the support page for your mb; http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4955#ov Note there are 3 different versions of that mb so be sure you are on the correct page. That link is for ver #1. There is a link at the upper left for ver 2, 2.1; again be sure you download the correct bios file if you decide to update the bios.

Everything was totally fine until I decided to re-partition the internal hard drive so the main partition had more data, and added a few smaller partitions for a future OS I'm wanting to install. Basically what happens now (since after rebooting, letting EASEUS Partition Master do its work, etc) is the laptop gets to the POST screen (where it says ASUS- I don't have the messages enabled, though probably should..) and hangs. Within 15-30 seconds the laptop gets very hot and I switch it off myself and let it cool down before trying again. Seems to only happen with this hard drive. I've plugged it into a different computer via usb and everything is intact as it should be, and windows chkdsk shows no errors. Plugging a spare hard drive of the same type inside the laptop allows me to get past the POST screen and everything operates normally. Perhaps I need to buy a new hard drive.... Thanks for all your help everyone! A:ASUS laptop won't pass POST screen Its possible Easeus has corrupted the boot sector on the hard drive. If it works in another computer then copy off any data you have on the drive before doing much more, as you may lose it all. If the data and the O/S is not important then delete the partitions on the drive via USB or use a drive zero utility such as the Western Digital Diagnostics. If you want to fix it try booting from a Windows disc and try FixMBR or Fixboot, or use TestDisk when its connected via USB to attempt to fix it. 1 more replies Answer Match 56.7% Hello everyone, I was wondering if you can help me with an Issue I'm having. Have a PC with an EPOX EP-8RDA6+PRO NF2 board with 2 Nvida Sata / 4 Silicon Image Raid Sata ports. Has an AMD Athlon XP 3000+, 1.5GB of Memory, and AGP ATI All-In-Wonder 9600xt. I am trying to convert it to a Server for our home network by installing 2 Seagate 1TB hard drives. Primary drive is a 160GB Seagate IDE drive and also there is a IDE DVD+RW drive installed. Whenever I try to start the machine from being powered down, it goes through post, identifies the IDE drives, then sits there and then Identifies the SATA drives (which I have on the 2 NVIDIA SATA ports). After that, it just hangs and does nothing. Now if I push the restart button on the case, it will go through just like it should and start up. It seems like it's almost taking too long for the SATA drives to spin up and it's causing it to hang up the POST. Anyone have any ideas or solutions to this? I did only have a 300 watt power supply in there and thought maybe it was too weak for all those drives and devices so I swapped in a 420 watt and it is still doing the same thing. While it's intended as a server, I don't want it on 24X7, so I have it set so it will Wake on LAN, but it won't work when I can't get past POST. So right now I'm stuck. Anyone seen an issue like this before? A:SATA drives won't pass POST on NForce2 board Since the MB is a few years old, it probably has a SATA v1 controller and it's not recognizing the new SATA v2 HDDs you've installed. Check with Seagate to find out if there's a way to resolve it. Some HDDs have a jumper to set it to the older SATA v1 throughput. Others require a software application to configure it to work with older SATA v1 controllers. 3 more replies Answer Match 51.66% Compaq presario 5000 windows xp home, Problem started a few days ago.

Ive been given a compaq deskpro pc by a friend of mine whos been having problems for a while. Originally when he asked about sorting it out he appeared (from his description over the phone) to have a virus of some sort - the computer was really slow and most recently was doing a countdown before shutting down. Its been a while since then because i havnt had time to look at it. When i eventually got it here and switched it on it didnt even boot. Power on fans spin up ide drives spin up and stop monitor doesnt initialise just stays in standby mode.

I then thought i would just run scandisk over it while it was still connected. Basic scan worked ok but trying to do a thorough surface scan it freezes my pc (only way out is power off) So anyway put the HDD back into the Compaq and tried booting. still nothing.

It worked perfectly until i moved house and after a few months of being in a corner i turned it on for the first time to discover that it would not boot up at all. It powers up, the fans come on, all the lights on all the (Hot Pluggable) disks light up momentarily, 2 lights on the keyboard light up for the briefest second. The big red Compaq logo appears on the screen and sometimes the memory check starts. But then the screen just goes blank, sometimes the memory check doesn't even start at all and the screen just blacks out after the Compaq logo. The computer does not die altogether, the fans keep whirring and the green power light remains on, but that is it. I do not get any beeps, but a couple of times the middle green light on one of the disks came on and remained on, but nothing else happened, even if i left the machine for hours. No amount of rebooting or pulling disks in or out or pulling the cover on or off made any difference at all. It just does the same. Any help would be greatly appreciated, just point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance Alan A:Compaq Proliant 5000 will not boot up or POST Interesting how you say that a light comes on and remains on, usually this suggests that the hardware is not connected properly; have you checked to make sure all of the wires in your case are securely fastened and plugged into the right places? Also, it would help us solve your problem if you gave us some system specs. How long did you have your computer before moving house? And finally, have you ever left your computer on and experienced a power surge or something similar?

Perhaps you have shorted something - I once trashed a board by vacuuming with a metal (I know I know) suck pipe with the thing running - it stopped and never worked again. Otherwise, take off all the connections including the power and replace them. Also take off all the front panel connections and leave them off. Disconnect all driver and cards. Replace the RAM Reboot by shorting the front panel connection pins - no beep = dead board. Compaq used to use 2 beeps for good POST = 2 beeps is good.

So I've been struggling with this problem for nearly 2 months now. At first, 3 of my 6 ram sticks were bad. Had to have them replaced twice for ocz to send me a second set of functional ram. After verifying that each individual stick works, I put in all 6 again, I get 3-7 errors per pass, regardless of what settings I use for the memory. I get a replacement mobo. Run memtest again, and I get the exact same errors. The same failing address, same everything. So I have intel replace my cpu, since Asus' tech support said that was the only remaining component that could possibly be at fault. Just put in the new cpu, guess what? Same faults, same address, same everything.

When I tested everything, I ran each stick individually in the first socket of the first bank. Each passed. I ran 3 sticks, filling the first bank. All passed. I put 1 in the first socket of the first bank, and filled the second bank. Each passed. The only time it fails the test is when there are 6 sticks in. The failing address is the same, regardless of where I move the sticks, after changing motherboard, after changing the cpu.

Not sure if it shows my system to people, so in case it doesn't, I have:

i7 920 d0 and c0
Asus p6x58d
2 sets of ocz3g1600lv6gk (6 total 2gb sticks of 1600mhz ddr3)

Code:
CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run "mybatch.bat",0
This is is exactly what I needed and it makes things a lot easier, with one exception. While using this VBS, I can't pass variables to my batch... or to be more precise don't know how to.
My intention is to make several shortcuts with different variables like so:

Code:
C:\start.vbs "My variable"
I want to be able to pass "My variable" to my batch, but still be able to manually launch start.vbs without any variable in a way that won't pass a random variable if it is not defined. Passing a blank variable is fine.
I have tried searching for a solution on Google, but being a total newbie to VBS, I couldn't find the right solution. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm totally lost on this one. We have a wifi network at home using wpa/wpa2 encryption. our laptops log on just fine with the code. We have a couple of new android phones which insist on a pass phrase after the code is input. I know nothing about a pass phrase. No pass phrase shows up when I log into the router--I get ips address, gateway, and a whole mess of info, but no info about a pass phrase.

Does anyone have any idea what this pass phrase is all about and where I can find it?

Thanks.

I created a my LOg for HJT

Hi, I'm new here and I am very confused. I have had problems with movie pass. This advertisement kept popping up on my computer telling me the only way to stop these advertisements is to pay for a subscription then I could end subscription.
I had to use task manager to end the program every time it popped up to get it off my screen. I used Norton Internet Security and it said that moviepass is Trojan Horse but could not delete it. I did quarentine the files Norton detected.
I then went to Windows Live Safety Scanner and it found the files again and deleted some but said some files couldn't be deleted, however when I ran scan again it said it deleted all. The advertisements have stopped.
Today I was searching through my program files and found one file called Notifier which is empty but I shredded it anyway with Windows Washer.
I also found the file body,swf,kate.swf,notifier.exe,readout.mp3, I need to know if there is an easy way to remove this from my computer. I need help with this issue. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Confusedcompgirl
