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 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!

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.

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 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. Then, there again I ran all programs, including Hit Man and everything seems to come clean now, including 2 subsequent runs of MWB.

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.

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.

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 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.

   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?

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
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

When I try to connect to my wireless networks, My Compaq Presario CQ57 keeps saying "windows was unable to connect to (name of my internet)". When I run the troubleshoot to look for the problem it say problem detected windows can't connect to the hidden network. I've
-updated all my drivers
-installed Ralink RT 5390 802.11b wifi adapter
-right clicked on properties and made wifi findable
so on and so on. My Led is white showing that I have wifi enabled. I've turned off my router, unplugged it, reset it, so on and so on but the same thing occurs. I have a couple other laptops and tablets in the house and they connect to my wifi with no problem. It's showing that I have full reception but just won't connect. I even tried connecting to my portable hotspot and it does and says the same thing. I can connect my Ethernet cable in the socket of the computer and it works just fine, but I need it to connect to my wireless wifi as this is going to be my work laptop and used on the road.

Hi: I wouldn't be able to help you get into windows. You are probably going to have to purchase a set of recovery media and reset the PC to its out of the box condition. You can try tapping the ESC key at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, select the F11 recovery option and see if you can factory reset the PC that way. Sometimes you need the Windows password for that too though. However, booting from the recovery media you purchase should work without the need of a password.

This is my very first post. I hate to bother you so I looked under "Search" using
"Global IME Japanese" twice and got totally unrelated virus issues twice so am now
forced to bother you. I have Compaq Presario 500 Series Desktop with Windows Home
Xp and Service Packs and was able to read Japanese articles on the internet until
recently in my Herculean efforts to get rid of BSPlayer that just wouldn't leave, I
probably got rid of all my Japanese and Chinese fonts as well so now when I go to
Japanese websites all I get are little squares. When I go into Control Panel, Regional
and Language Options, Supplemental Language Support, Install files for east Asian
Languages, I get a message that what is being downloaded is not as new as what I
have, but what I have isn't working, obviously, so I command to over-ride previous IME's and download anyway and in a few minutes I get a message saying that it's not possible to download the Japanese Chinese and Korean language IME (they come in one package.) No further explanation. This is my very first post so I'll be checking for a reply.

I have a Compaq Presario 2700US laptop that has the following symptoms. I suspect its a motherboard issue but would like your advise as well.

Plugged in:

External Power light turns on
Press power button and the bottom left power light comes on.
Battery light amber (charging)
Hold power button down and the left bottom power light goes out.

Battery removed:

Nothing.

This laptop will not power up or show any signs of life. I opened the unit to look for corrosion or maybe a liquid spill and it is clean. No burned items, no observed heated units and no signs of any moisture or corrosion. Owner states nothing was spilled in it it just stoped powering up on day.

Any advise would be helpful. This is my first post to this forum.

is it under warranty?if not than it sounds like the psu must have shorted out or may be something on mobo,either case its not user serviceable or replacable(well not easily especially for a novice),you'll have to get it looked at by a pro or maybe the hp/compaq service centre.

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,

I have been attempting to replace the power supply in a Compaq Presario 5330US (Compaq P/N: 470019-713). It is a Pentium 4, 1.7 GHz with 512 RAM.
The motherboard is Compaq: KSR1983077 Spider-S
The power supply is a 235W (250W on plate), p/n 243890-001

It is not a standard ATX power supply, or at least the connector to the motherboard is not pinned to the ATX standard. It has a 24-pin connector vs. the 20-pin ATX (and it's not the latest 2.0 version). I tried a standard Antec PS and the unit failed to turn on, and the motherboard LED indicating power present does not light. AND the wires from the PS do not use the ATX color coding. Compaq does not offer a higher wattage PS.

What are my options?
- I would like to just splice my new power supply to the existing connector, but I do not have the pin-out to properly match up. Does anyone have a source for this info, and don't say HP/Compaq support.... Been there, done that... again, and again, and again......
- I want to upgrade the PS to accommodate a new video card (the card suggests a minimum 300W), should I just try it/chance it with my existing PS?

ANY and ALL help is appreciated.
 

A:Replacing power supply in a Presario

you already bought a good PSU, and you have a new video card...

just buy a new MoBo, you can get one for that CPU on newegg for about $40. then it will use standard ATX connectors, and will be better than the compaq board that came with your system.

Compaq Presario M2000 Won't Power up

I seem to show a .09 ohm on the positive side of the contact to the other on where one of the caps would sit...

also showing .09 ohms from ground to the positive side of the cap contact on the board with the cap removed.

.09 is close to a short of some sort correct?

I have a Compag Presario SR5010NX using Windows Vista Home Basic.

The computer has been working for over a year with no problem. The problem: Recently when I pressed the On switch, the lights on the Keyboard turn on and then turned off (this is normal for the keyboard). The power supply sent power to all three fans in the computer. But the computer appears to be hibernating or be dead. The switch light on the front panel does not come on. The LCD monitor gets no signal (the light stays amber) etc. I turned the computer on and off several times over a period of several days. I even took the battery out and left it out for several minutes as I think the computer is hibernating and wanted to restore it to ts default state. I also tried pressing the following keys Ctrl+Alt+F7 all to no avail.
Can anyone tell me what to do?

A:Compag Presario Has Power But All Lights Are Off

You may want to open the case and Look for a BIOS Jumper. These are small connectors for special features to work, usually black or blue.

Your computer may have a recovery option by moving this jumper around, or taking it off for a single Boot up. If this fixes the issue you want to
remember how to put it back where it was.

BTW make sure the power is OFF before you try this.

Another option would to use a different power supply, one that you know to work.
