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!

The Wireless has already quit working too! Buyer Beware!!! Please can someone please help me out?? I am desperate.

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.

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

My girlfriend has a Compaq CQ57. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium. She has the re-install disk set for it also. The problem is: The computer BSoD'd about 4 times in one night but I was never able to get the code that I could look up. I decided to re-install the OS using the disk set but now it runs slower than it ever did, and it was never a fast computer. I checked Performance Monitor and found that the Memory reading was fluctuating contstantly up to almost 100% and back down. I'm thinking that the Memory may need replacing. The other graphs seem to be about normal. Any ideas? Thanks. Jeff W

I was recently given a Compaq Presario CQ57 (300 Series)  by a friend running Windows 10 64 Bit.   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. Does anyone have any suggestions that could still be making it very sluggish. I gather that it is not possible to upgrade the processor. Thank you

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 downloaded a copy of Windows 7 onto an external drive but I can't get the CQ57 to read it even after changing the boot order. Also downloaded the drivers for the CD-rom but can't lo... Read more

A:Cannot restore Compaq Presario CQ57 with disks

There's surely something wrong with the message of "starting Windows 98" and having Win7 discs for it. Windows 98 is quite old and there's 2 versions, 98 and 98SE [Second Edition]. As I recall there was also an update for 98 similar to a Service Pack. There should be a multi-color sticker on the case, maybe on the bottom, that gives the version of Windows and the required Product Key, useful for determining what its origin was.

The normal battery that came with the laptop is 10.8v 4090mah. However, the battery is now weak and I'm looking to replace it. But the replacement battery I found has a bigger capacity ? 6600mah 11.1v. I want to know if its safe for my laptop, because many people from Google search results said its okay if its 11.1v, and some online store sellers also said it's okay to use 11.1v replacement for a 10.8v battery.Please let me hear your opinions.

Hello. I just recently bought a compaq presario cq57 laptop from a friend. And I was told right after I paid for it that my friend couldn't remember the password so therefore couldn't get into it. Thus I too can't get into it and am totally locked out.It barely starts to boot up after turningit on when it almost immediately goes to the screen saying/asking for a password. And every time after 3 failed attempts it says disabled and gives me a special number code to go with it. The disabled code that it gives me every time is  -  disabled  69374099. Is there anyone out there that can give me the real/right password to put in especially one that matches up with the disabled number code error that it keeps giving me. Thank you all very very much.

   Hi, this seem to be a question doomed to be without solution, but is there a way to configure the fan settings on my Presario Windows 7 x64 Laptop? It becomes warm pretty easily and while it performs well, I've heard that it extends life-expectancy greatly with high cooler temperatures. So far I haven't found anything able to change them for this specific computer, while on my Macbook ( schoolcomputer, don't blame me!) I just needed to install a third party, change RPM and target temp and then it was done, not even a reboot needed. Im using a cooler allready. Has anyone managed to do this? Im pretty experienced with managing my PC and the system, but I'd prefer to not meddle with registry and such. Thanks in beforehand!       /illirey

A:Fan settings on a Compaq Presario CQ57 Windows Laptop

Hi,CPU fan speed (RPMs) are managed by BIOS based on the CPU temprature. tweaking registry may not help manage the RPM. maximum you can achieve is, manage to cook the CPU which will heatup the processor more, which will make the heatsink FAN rotate at higher RPMs. which is anyways not going to solve issues. infact it can increase the troubles. however if you see any issues caused due to heating of notebook, you may wish to follow steps below and try to reduce the heat on the PC by cleaning heatsink etc...http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01657439  Good Luck !!!!

Hello Tech Support Guy forums! 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?

Anyway, does anyone have some troubleshooting suggestions?
 

A:Connectivity problems, particularly with Skype, on a Compaq Presario CQ57

would you post the following when its working and then repeat all the tests when it disconnects

is this connected by wifi if so also add the xirrus tests

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

I have recently installed 2-4GB DDR3-1333 (PC3 10600) SODIMM Kit of 2 CT51264BF1339.M16FMR. Sorry if that is too much information on the new memory but I just wanna make sure that I have complete details posted.

After I installed the RAM, I immediately checked my computer properties which shows the 8GBs of RAM installed. I understand that the computer doesn't use the 0.4 GB of RAM but that is not my problem.



Here is my problem. I try to test my RAM by opening several programs with the highest memory using settings but the CPU hits 100% when it's only using 2.5 GB or less. These are the same results prior to installing the extra memory. (I only had 2GB of RAM at the time but the results haven't changed.)



I am stuck with the same problem after calling technical support from the website that I ordered my RAM from. Crucial They instructed me too wait a few days and that the computer would get accustomed to the new memory enhancement but the performance hasn't improved in the past 5 days since installation. If anyone person could help me with my problem, I would be extremely grateful.

A:My new 8 GB RAM isn't being used on my CQ57 - 315NR

Hi Daven,

I may be wrong here, but your Task manager screen capture implies that the processes you are running require CPU resources, and not additional RAM. I don't see any problems at all.

Which processes/programs are you running?

Hi guys.  Was wondering which processors are compatible with this intel-based board.  The current processor is the Intel Celeron B800 (1.50GHz).   The system will hold a pretty decent amount of memory running at a decent speed: DDR3L PC3L-12800, CL=11, Unbuffered,  NON-ECC,  DDR3L-1600, 1.35V  Though the processor is dual core, its performance seems highly mismatched to the memory the system can handle.  Does anyone know of a list or even just a couple of suggestions of processor upgrades I can swap this Celeron one out for? Thanks for any and all help in advance!

A:What do I need to upgrade to make faster my Presario CQ57?

RAM is the much easier upgrade. I would recommend at least 4 gigs, and it will take up to 8. It takes DDR3-1333 SO-DIMM memory. CQ57-339WM seems to be your model.  This is the Service Manual which you will need to swap processors: Manual The CQ57s with a Celeron processor will accept only Celeron processors. There are a couple faster Celerons available for your computer but swapping a Celeron for another Celeron just does not seem worth the effort to me.  If you want the computer to run faster install 4 gigs of RAM and consider upgrading to a solid state hard drive. The speed improvement will actually be more than you would get from upgrading to a faster Celeron CPU.

I have this laptop here that is, to put it mildly, SLUGGISH. General windows performance is very noticable. Meaning, you click on something for it to open up, and it could be upwards of 10 seconds or more before there is any kind of sign that your program will finally be ready to open. 
Then there is internet. Internet explorer is unusable. It will display things on pages, but if you have an intention, of maybe clicking a link or maybe scrolling down, the delay in it actually doing it is well over 10 seconds usually. 
It has Firefox and Chrome installed. These are working, with some lag. Normal surfing is ok for speed, even videos will play without painful lag or choppiness. But for instance, on Facebook, if a game like Candy Crush or really any of the browser based games, tires to load, it has the forever load... then poof all at once it is loaded lag going on. Then once in the game, there is severe graphic degradation and  unplayable lag with clicks and drags for actual gameplay. 
 
I have had this machine before and cleared it out of any and all infections that it had. I ran the same programs I did last time, downloaded from this site. Malwarebytes first scan did find traces of Conduit (that was all that it found), but got rid of it.

Well, you are running win 7 in the completely minimal specs, that might be one of the reasons, either way i'm sure my fellow forum members will help you reduce the load in your system somehow. I'd usually recommend an upgrade, but i don't think it's possible in your case, altough switching to Windows XP should improve your experience alot, it might just not be a good idea since it'd require wiping out win 7 and most laptops forbid that. Either way, would you mind taking a screenshot of the processes running in your computer? Listed in order of most memore used.

My Compaq Armada 3500 won't boot past COMPAQ logo. It wont boot to Floppy or CD and I cant enter BIOS to change any settings. I have 2 of these laptops (I bought them both used). My other one had the same similar problem when I got it, but I fixed by removing the cmos battery for 30 minutes and rebooting after I put it back in without the HD in the case. It told me error 162 options not set, and date and time had to be reset, and to hit F1 to save the settings. I did and rebooted. It booted to my floppy Win98 boot disk fine, and then I put in a COMPAQ setup for portables and a DIAG floppy and set it up to boot to multi boot. It runs like a charm now for its size.
But the other one will not accept any of these options although it does tell me the same message after I remove the CMOS battery and put it back in as I did the other one. But when I reboot, it still doesnt see the floppy, CDROM or let me boot to bios to enter setup. It just shows the COMPAQ logo and says "non system disk, remove the disk and hit a key when ready." I have removed the hard drive, removed the CD ROM, and removed the floppy on seperate occasions to see if any of them were the problem, but no change. I took the whole thing apart, and put it back together hoping something would end up being connected to the problem, but it still doesn't change the problem. Next to selling it for parts, any ideas? Its in great shape, has a nice 13 inch lcd and good floppy and cd-roms, and 192 ram.

I have an old Compaq Armada 3500 laptop that I bought years ago to help me through college. After that it kinda gathered dust a little until recently when I wanted to dig it back out and just use it to play a few games on and whathaveyou. It booted up fine when I first did it but it soon transpired that it was absolutely chocablock with viruses and spyware and it was running terribly.

So, on what now looks to have been a foolish move, I did a C: drive format in the hope of popping in a Win98SE installation disc and have it boot from that to re-install Windows.

However, now it won't boot up past the COMPAQ initial screen and a "602: Diskette Read Driver Error" or something keeps flashing up.

Is there any way to get into the BIOS settings to set the CD Drive as the first in the boot-up line-up, or are there recovery discs I can download that'll at least get me into DOS?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Compaq Armada 3500 Laptop Won't Boot Up Past Compaq Screen...

Well you should be able to access the CMOS Bios by using either the delete, F1 or F2 keys (sometimes f10). Then under the Bios you should see the Boot Sequence and be able to change it from there. But either way, you should be able to get past the Compaq splash screen. Try setting your boot sequence and see if that helps.

A:Compaq Presario SR1810NX Not Getting Past Compaq Logo Screen

Try a power drain.
1. Unplug power cord
2. Hold power button in for 60 seconds or more then let go
3. Plug in power cord
4. turn on the power and try to boot to setup (BIOS)

If it enters the BIOS then you should be able to just press F5 to reset to defaults and then F10 to save and exit. The PC should work now.

However, if after the power drain you still can not get in the BIOS than there is a MAJOR problem which would require some type of repair.

HiI have an HP Compaq SG3-110UK desktop, and I would like to change the hard drive to an SSD. Firstly is this desktop compatible with an SSD drive - secondly what type of SATA connection would I need assuming I can? I would prefer to keep the original HDD for additonal storage, so was thinking of getting a power splitter and putting the drive in the optical bay, or the old HDD there (either way). Is this a possible? Are there any gotchas before I commit hard cash? Thanks for all your advice Rob  

A:HP - Compaq Compaq SG3-110UK - Can I install an SSD drive

Hi, From the following link I don't think you have room for a second HDD unless you have to modify the 5.25" bay.     http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02568761 Now back to your main question, yes, you can replace current SSD with a 2.5" SSD. Currently your machine uses SATA II (3Gb/s) but I believe you can't find any SATA II SSD around, you have to buy a SATA III SSD. You also need 2.5 to 3.5 inch SSD Mounting Bracket which you can buy at any good computer shop for under $10 (or few pounds). You have to work out how to put (physically) the old HDD back. Regards.

At the command prompt type

Now it wont boot up at all.It will turn on and the fans are running, the monitor will get power then thats it,, nothing else. Just black screen no boot up nada just fan noise. I call compaq they say "sorry for ya". I ask them if I can put in a new hard drive they trell me the size to get. was 160 sata can get 400 sata. They tell me it would be ok to put the recovery disks in and run it???? My brother says no way!!! They sent me 3 disks they all say recovery . I try to learn fasbut i just cant get an answer . Help me please to get the computer running again.
 

A:help with compaq

If you get nothing on the screen the running the recovery or replacing the hard drive isn't likely going to help at all.

I would start by tryign another power supply. But it could be faulty memory, video card, or motherboard as well.

i've had my laptop for a while, dvd player worked fine...i had to re-install windows a while back and since then, the dvd drive has only worked as a cdrom drive - if i put a dvd disc in, the computer simply acts like a disc is not in the drive at all. ive updated wmp10 with codecs, and windvd is already installed as well, yet neither does anything. - my computer will not even recognize a disc in the drive if it is dvd - any suggestions out there? thanks

Hi
My son in law has given me this computer to install a wireless card but I do not see how to do it.
To help with identification: the computer has HP Compaq on the front, on the side it has a barcode sticker with the number CZC3350 P 1 Z. I have run PC Wizard on it and it tells me the mainboard is HP 0864 H, it has 512 mb RAM and a 40 gb hdd.
From the outside it looks as if there is provision for 1 expansion card, can anyone confirm this?
There is one easily detachable cover which gives access to the HDD but the area surrounding the expansion slots is beneath a further cover which looks rather more complicated to remove.
Help with installing the wireless card would be appreciated and any links to manuals for the computer and the mainboard would also be welcome.
regards
phil

I've recently acquired an old compaq desktop, but it gives me a long, continuous beep code over and over.
I've tried reseating, and replacing the ram, to no avail.
Does anyone know how to identify the mobo on compaqs? All the info I have is the serial number, and hp support couldn't do anything without the product number.
I would like to just replace the mobo, but I don't know the model.

s/n for machine is -1X07DTY5R4KB

only number i can find on the mobo is U72400304
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
