I am wanting to find out some information on RAM for my HP Presario Notebook C700. It looks like the maximum RAM that it accepts is 4GB (DDR 667 Mhz). If I install 2 times 2GB Modules does that mean that the system will only acknowledge 3BG and not 4GB. I only bought one 2GB module to put in to replace the 2 * 512GB Modules are currently in it. If I put the 2GB module in will that work fine by itself on one bank. I read somewhere that I should make both sides equal and install either 2 1GB Modules or 2 2GB Modules. I hope I am making sense. Advice would be helpful.

A:RAM For a HP Notebook Presario C700

If you have a 32bit OS then it can only read 3.25GB of RAM do to limitations of the OS. If you have a 64bit OS your system can read 8GB or more of RAM depending on the hardware.

The benifits of putting in 2 sticks or RAM as opposed to a single stick is that 2 sticks can run in dual channel mode which speeds up the RAM. Of course your computer and RAM have to be dual channel as well and 99% of hardware is.

I'm having a problem with a laptop, the CD drive isn't being recognised. There is no section for CD / DVD drives in device manager.

The computer is running Vista & had viruses, which I (think) I removed with Malwarebytes & also cleaned up with CCleaner & Spybot

Since removing all these I gave my friend his laptop back, used the drive to play some games & now it won't detect it again.

I am unsure what to do? The model is HP / Compaq Presario C700 (C742EM)

Hey guys i'm looking to upgrade the operating system on my Presario c700 notebook from Vista Home Basic to Windows 7. From what i've seen it's a lot lighter on resources and in the next couple of months i want to upgrade my RAM.

Would Windows 7 Ultimate, Home premium, Professional, etc. be more suitable? 32 bit or 64 bit?
How much RAM would i be able to upgrade to? I've heard 2GB and +4GB from different sources.

Hi: You can upgrade to a 64 bit operating system as your hardware can support it. However, I wouldn't do it if I were you as your PC can only take a maximum of 2 GB of memory. That must be a BIOS limitation as the chipset in your PC can recognize up to 8 GB of memory with a 64 bit OS.. A 64 bit OS needs more memory to run than a 32 bit OS does, so there would be no benefit to you installing a 64 bit OS with only 2 GB of memory. IMO, your performance would actually suffer a little over a 32 bit OS running 2 GB of memory. There would be no difficulty installing a 64 ibt OS as your PC's support page has 64 bit drivers available. Most if not all of the Vista 64 drivers will work with W7. My rule of thumb is to never install a 64 bit OS unless you have at least 4 GB of memory installed. Paul

Hello I am having issues with my Compaq Presario C700 Laptop. During use (and no specific use either).

I have a Presario C700 with Windows Vista Home Premium. I have 2 issues:
1 the touchpad often stops allowing me to scroll and I have to tap it multiple times to make it click on something

2 even more annoying is that when I'm typing the cursor will skip to a random place on the page and keys get typed that I know I didn't touch. At first I thought it was an overly sensitive keyboard, but then I had a friend watch me to see if I was touching other keys and I wasn't!

A:presario c700 keyboard randomly skips

p 18:
1. boot to safe mode by tapping the F8 key once a second during the boot process. Use the up / down arrow keys to high light / select "safe mode". Press "enter".
Does the problem exist?

2. Some of are touch pad challenged.

3. On my IBM laptop, the left click button has begun to inconsistently respond. I think it is wearing out. A similar issue could be occurring w/ your CPQ lappy.

4. Tiny gophers?
What, if anything, have you used to clean your keyboard & touch pad. Use ONLY that which is recommended by CPQ.

The screen on my Compaq Presario C700 has gone green and fractally.It looks a bit like its eaten someones' acid. Not ideal, and is a bit migraine inducing...

It comes back to life if I tilt the screen right back, which says to me its a loose connection somewhere. Its not the motherboard, as I have checked it on an external monitor and is fine...


I have disassembled and re-assembled and its still the same, and now have a query...

Behind the screen, along with the ZIF connector that connects at the top , there is a tiny white plug on a silver cable that isnt connected to anything, and I cannot see anywhere it should live. Is this for a camera maybe, or is this maybe my problem?

Please, any advise would be massively appreciated. The disassembly manual on HPs website was completely useless, it appears to be for a different model than the one I asked for...

Dear Friends,
Hope all is well.
What is the exact replacement model and number AC Adapter for an Compaq Presario HP C700 notebook? There seems to be a larger and smaller pin configuration for this model. 
From the Start>computer>right click> properties> it states the notebook as a Compaq Presario HP C700.
Specs on the bottom:
s/n:[personal informatioin removed]
p/n: KC590UA#ABA
Service tag also lists C751NR

Also, the AC adapter is either "flaky"/defective or the input on the Notebook is "flaky?" This must of been a known issue with this model due to the tiny pin size. I've owned numnerous other HP notebooks and this is the only model that has had this "flaky" adapter issue.  
The issue is when you plug the adapter in sometimes it connects and the blue indicator light comes on..and sometimes if you happen to move the notebook from one place to another the light/connection is not solid. I'm assuming its the connector on the adapter and not the input in the notebook.
Any help or suggestions appreciated along with the "correct" AC adapter replacement number for this specific notebook. A source would be nice also outside of HP as an option.
Sincerely, Raphael

Havent foung any errors crashes due to modules. Works perfect. .After those upgrades i installed small SSD which added for booting which gave more boost to system. .Replaced DVD-Drive with Caddy thanks to visruth, installed with 1TB . Battery replaced with 12 cells Conclusion:This 8 year unit is demonstrating booting, processing and loading speeds which could be compared to couple of year old machines, 6 Gigs of working space memory which can hold heavy programs witout using pagefile (actually disabled) and about Tera byte storage to store every thing needed made it become mordern general use laptop. Only thing which doesnt cope with it is graphics card. Besides that all is fine, infact it is running more cooler than before. Thankyou for your advise

I've been having several problems with this laptop recently. Firstly, its a Compaq Presario C700 with Windows Vista on it and 1gb of RAM. My first issue was with the DVD/CD room drive (which I still can't get fixed). Then, I restored the computer back to it's factory settings because the person my friend who owned this computer before me had a lot of adware and malware junk on it. After that, I was still having an issue with the D drive. For some reason, it was full but the computer was restored to factory settings. So, therefore, I decided to just reformat the drive because I figured that it was causing problems with the computer's performance. However, the computer still had performance problems such as the Windows Aveo Aero theme wouldn't load properly. That was all fine and dandy. As long as the computer was still running. I would get it all fixed as soon as I got the time and money. Now, all of a sudden, I can't even get the computer past the startup "Compaq" loading screen. This all happened today when firefox all of a sudden updated itself (which was weird to me) then when it loaded again a screen popped up asked me to download or cancel "system.exe". Before doing so, I researched and saw several claims up it being a virus. However, the every time I kept clicking cancel, it kept popping up. So I finally pressed "install" which was probably dumb. 5 minutes later the computer shutdown firefox again and all this windows kept popping up (whic... Read more

I turned on my laptop this morning to find that the touch pad doesn't work. This wasn't really a problem as I generally use a plug-in mouse, however, upon restarting my computer again, my keyboard also doesn't work.

I'm running Vista 32 bit and I have no idea what to do.

Does this sound like a software problem or a hardware problem? Is it possible that I have a virus that is causing this?

Would my best solution be to re-install Vista?

I have everything backed up so I don't mind doing that, however, I don't know how. When I bought my laptop Vista was pre-installed so I don't have the CD.

I'd be very appreciative to any help you guys could offer!

Does anybody know where the answer might be (or what settings I need to change)? Thanks!

My issue is that when I open Internet explorer (Firefox has a similar issue but opens in another tab) I get a pop up that says that it can not find then characters that do not mean anything to me. I am able to go to pages by clicking out of the pop up, but more pop ups appear with each site I go to.

I attached a Word file with a screen clip of the pop up.

Thank you for your help, the following is the information requested:

Hi there. This is an odd problem, whenever certain characters are used ("^ are just some) then a letter is pressed foreign characters appear.
When I press
" Then O it comes up as ?, instead of "O, and so on.
Does anyone have any ideas, on how this could be fixed. I've checked in the regional/language settings, and in the G15 control Panel.

A:Foreign Characters/Characters appearing.

I use English, German and Finnish keyboard layouts on a daily basis. Never had this kind of issue.

I had someone tell me they kept getting the message:Cannot find 'http://?xi ??...' make sure the path or internet address is correctEvery time they'd start Internet Explorer 7. I scanned with Malware bytes, but it didn't fix the problem. I then ran Autoruns. The user told me that this started happening yesterday some time. I went to the internet explorer section of Autoruns, and found that an add-ingoogletoolbar.dll had a modified date of yesterday afternoon. It also oddly didn't have the Google, Inc. tag under the software vendor column. So I un-installed the Google Toolbar, and deleted the Program Files directory, and the error message stopped coming up.I don't know if it was Malware trying to replace the google toolbar, or if the google toolbar itself was broken, but anyway that's what fixed my issue.

A:IE "Cannot find <garbage characters>. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct." error. Cannot use IE...

After doing some more research, I fixed the problem.It was really bizarre, whenever I launched IE I would get a message box with the following error: "Cannot find 'http://<garbage characters>'. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct." After clicking [OK] it would then try to open up IE again, basically causing an infinite loop of errors.Firefox would not run either. As soon as I launched Firefox it would crash immediately.I tried removing and reinstalling Firefox and also tried upgrading to IE8. Nothing worked. The IE8 install gt hung trying to download.To make a long story short, I found this thread via google: restored my Internet options from Control Panel and everything works again.It was pretty brutal, I think the Internet options were set set to another language and that caused all of the problems. Malwarebytes and Adaware did not detect any problems.Hopefully, this will help someone else with the same problem.-Zork

This has only started happening in the last few days. I have run a full scan on avg(it found 2 trojans and tracking cookies, which i deleted). I have also run scans on Malwarebytes(many infected files that I deleted) and Superantispyware(no threats). I thought these scans had solved my problems but they appeared again last night. hopefully someone can help me. thanks

"cannot find http://<random characters>make sure the path or internet address is correct"

1) Internet Explorer will often not open if it or a shortcut are double clicked.
It is seen in task manager, trying again results in another iexplore.exe showing up in task manager.
Ending task on it and retrying a few times will usually get it to open.

2) If it does open, clicking a link will usually result in the "cannot find http://<random characters>" error.
Manually typing links in the address bar works fine.
I'm pretty sure I had the "cannot find" error in safemode as well, I can check that again if anyone needs me to.

I'm using Chrome as my primary browser now, it seems to work fine, though now and then I get the "chrome has crashed" error, unsure if this is the result of some sort of malware/hijacker as well, or running the beta version of Chrome with a lot of tabs open.

Company laptop, has Trend MICRO on it, though it finds nothing. The windows firewall is disabled by group policy, and the Trend Micro firewall is used instead.

A:Malware Cannot find http://(chinese characters) Make sure the path or internet address is correct

Hi jgardner,Welcome to BC HijackThis forum. I am farbar. I am going to assist you with your problem.One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.A backdoor Trojan can allow an attacker to gain control of the system, log keystrokes, steal passwords, access personal data, send malevolent outgoing traffic, and close the security warning messages displayed by some anti-virus and security programs.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the Operating System. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can still try to clean this machine but I might not be able to make sure it will be 100% secure afterward. Please tell me if you want to go on with cleaning.

Hey guys, need your help. I own a Compaq Presario CQ62-230E1. Am using windows 7 4bit .Last September the motherboard crashed and I had to take it to be replaced. When it was repaired, I took went and collected it. At first I noticed that when I connected the Ethernet cable to the laptop there was no internet connection. Whenever I ran diagnostics it told me same issue, local are network doesn?t have a valid ip configuration. I tried connecting via wifi and it was working properly the only problem was that the modem had to be close to the laptop, like literally a few centimeters away. Recently as of one week ago it totally stopped picking up wifi from the ISP modem no matter how close it is returning the error wireless access; problem with adapter. The irony is when I try to connect the laptop to the internet via my phone whether it is tethering or hotspot it connects to the internet. My friend who is a computer expert thought it was a software issue but we downloaded and installed all the necessary drivers. We even went as far as to format local disk C just to be sure and ensure all the junk is chucked. He guesses that the problem is hardware suggesting that when they replaced the motherboard they must have interfered with the wifi /Ethernet boad. Any help will be highly appreciated. Alvaro

The laptop is approximately 4 months old but I happen to have dropped it about 1 month ago from a distance of about 2.5 feet it chipped a piece of the front bezel but that I am not worried about a little super glue can fix that. The problem I am having is when i start it up it will run fine for about 20-35 min then it will freeze up requiring a reboot after the reboot it will run for about 35-45 min and freeze up. Then it will restart a thnird time and do the same thing ,but on the fourth restart it used to run completely normal no reboot,no freeze just perfectly fine this is plugged up or on battery power it does not matter. Now it freezes and requires reboot no matter how many times I restart it. Could someone please help me find a solution to this laptop before it becomes a pile of finely crushed parts. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

It should still be under warranty. I know that you dropped it but it sounds like a cooling fan or 2 broke and as soon as it heats up it freezes. You will most likely have to send it back to get fixed unless you are comfortable taking apart a laptop.

Even if I connect with an ethernet cable, none of these will install, and FF will not run.

I've added Firefox to the Norton 360 firewall settings. It made no difference.

I have never seen anything like this happen on any laptop before. It is beyond frustrating. How can a laptop run one browser and not any other?

I have no idea if this is a Windows 7 issue or a Norton issue. I've added Firefox to the Norton firewall, but it made no difference. I do not understand why the Compaq allows IE8 to connect to the Internet, but not one other program. Even the Norton 360 LiveUpdate cannot connect. I've tried this using the Compaq wirelessly, or with ethernet cable.

I have called TalkTalk and they have checked the connection, concluding that its fine. I have also been in contact with the manufacturer of our router (Belkin). After changing lots of settings around, they told me it must be an issue with the network adapter (?) on my laptop. I can't actually find any support from Compaq/HP themselves. Please help!!

Hi Presario V6000 and welcome to TSF

You didn't give us much to work with. I have to guess that you have a laptop pc and installed XP from a CD other than the recoverydisk that came with the computer.

Your problem seems to be that you didn't install the drivers that are normally supplied with the pc. If you go to the device manager and look at the tree structure, you will probably see yellow marks by about 4 items on the tree. Those have to be cleared up.
To get the device manager, right click on My Computer icon and pick properties. Then pick hardware from that menu and device manager from there.

You might be able to go the the manufacturer's web site and down load that group of drivers and install them. Try that and see if it works.

Good luck,

Amazingly I could still locate the Service manual online: Manual See p. 87. The BIOS has a VT on and off toggle so you should get hardware virtualization if you install an approriate processor.  The cheapest one you could get would likely be the T7100: Hard to beat $6 from one of the better eBay laptop parts sellers, shipping included: If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have a Compaq Presario C700 which is giving me the following error:
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key.

I'm a technical user and have been able to fix just about anything, until now. I've done some research, and I've found that this Compaq C700 is a terrible computer that just can't be fixed. They're probably right.

I've tried to boot off an external optical drive, but this failed to load the system. I've checked the boot order is correct and that the optical drive was enabled in the BIOS, but this still did not allow me to boot from the optical drive. I knew that it recognized a system there because it had an underscore, which meant it was trying to boot from the disk, but sadly, no luck.

As for the hard drive, I've replaced it with a spare, couldn't install Win7 on it directly from the laptop, so I installed it on my desktop system, then put it back in. Still, the message. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key.

I've verified every available BIOS setting to the last detail. The only thing I could think of and haven't yet tried is to try to see if there's a CMOS battery anywhere and disconnect that, but I'm not sure where that could be on a laptop, and taking this thing apart is practically impossible.

I know the CPU and system board and everything else seems to be in working order, it's just that it can't seem to work off of a Windows 7 disc or installation. A red flag for me was when I went into the BIOS (InsydeH20)... Read more

Good morning

I dont know if anyone can help. I have recently upgraded my Compaq C700 from Vista Home Basic to Vista Business due to several issues with slow processing speed and issues with booting. Vista Businesss seems to be working fine and a vast improvement, however, unfortunately the wireless connection no longer works.

The button on the keyboard remains orange. I have looked under device manager and under networks it is showing two unknown devices. On wireless network search, it is showing on broadband LAN connections and no wireless options. If I click on wireless options, I get the message that the wireless adapter is not installed and configured.

I have downloaded a programme called Driver Robot which claims to note that the wireless adapter is missing and provides the driver. However, this does not seem to install on download.

Any assistance much appreciated.

I have Toshiba Satellite Laptop running XP and I am trying use to the modem for a dialup connection and continually get the "Error 633: The modem (or other connected device) is already in use or etc etc". I've tried everything I can think of and reviewed all related threads on here and checked the microsoft site, but I still can't figure it out. Here is what I tried:

1) Shutdown any and all programs that may be trying to access the modem from the system tray

2) Reviewed my processes to see if anything could be interferring - didn't find anything

3) Check Device manager - working properly

4) Uninstalled it from the device manager so windows could find new hardware

5) The telephone.ini option is not applicable since it's XP I'm using

Additional Notes:

The laptop is used on a corporate network and I'm trying to use the dial up option when I'm offsite. Could there be a firewall problem?

The modem is shown as connected to COM3, but when I look at my LPT/COM ports in Device Manager all I see is a single LPT port and no COM ports - could that be the problem? If so how would I resolve it.

When I attempt to query the modem I cannot.

Is there anything else I can try? Thanks in advance. Have a good day.

feels like i havent been on here for ages

jus looking for some help with MS Word

was wondering how i can make the little squared sign(small 2) appear next to a number

e.g x = (4+5) 2 -this 2 should be small like when writing 6th the t and h become small. how can i do this manually?

and help very much appreciated

A:Solved: missed u!

In my version of Word (2000) here's the way you do it:

type your formula,
highlight the 2,
go to "Format" on the top menu,
select "font"
look for "superscript" with a box beside it. Click in the box to put a checkmark in it.
Click the "OK" below

If that doesn't work in your version, then go to your Help menu and search for "subscript". The instructions there should also work for superscripts.

It's been awhile but I came back for a really stupid question

On another forum that I live on, there is this guy that claims the following

"If it`s just files between the two XP machines you want to transfer back and forth, I am able to do that with just a reg LAN cable between the two computer`s LAN ports, as long as both machines are set to share. The cable has the same wire layout end to end when you lay the plugs side by side and compare the colors of the wires.
If it`s the internet you want for both machines plus transferring files between, then a hub or switch between the machines and the router is what you want."

I am calling him a fool... there is a VERY long history of him screwing up computer networks (I had to stay up til 3am once to fix a network he "fixed")

His tech advise has been "make all users administrators, then you can get to your files"..

I will show him this link.

Any one want to chime in?

Long story short...I lost my job yesterday based on the fact that a "random" check was done on a few computers with the Barracuda Website Filtering. Since I log onto my computer at the beginning of the day and don't log out until 5 any activity will appear under my name even if I locked my screen and leave my apps running. Now keep in mind 4 people have used this computer before me, and while I was out for a month others used my computer. In the past 2 months I have seen the Symantec message Web Attack: Exploit Kit Variant Activity 3 when I turn on my computer run a scan that found nothing and wasn't notified by the tech monitors of anything so I assumed everything was ok. Until yesterday when I was told that the Barracuda Website Filtering had monitored me going to multiple adult content websites that I had never heard of or seen for 1-4 or 5 min sessions. Some of the times I was out to lunch. The head of the tech department was called in as I was stating that it could be a virus, worm anything that could have been running in the background. The tech expert said it's not true you have to actually visit those pages  she said they can't run in the background.
Was it possible I was infected and was not caught? I did not go to those sites. Your thoughts.

A:Symantec may have missed something serious ...Help?

If the IT Dept was monitoring activity and websites visited by employees, they should have a record of the user login name and date/times this was done. Did they show you that information?If your computer was shared by others, did each user have their own login account or was the same login information shared by everyone?If everyone had their own login account, its always possible someone logged in with your user account (if they had access to that info) and visited those prohibited sites. The problem then is proving that it was someone else.

I am too poor to consider broadband/second dedicated line, but am fed up with the few remaining friends I have left getting the engaged signal while I am on-line.

One of the computer magazines I subscribe to did mention a product called 'Buzz-me' which seemed absolutely perfect...only problem was that it only appears to work with US telephone systems as when I entered my London telephone number I got an error message: 'not a valid area code' (or something like that)
