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!

Hey guys,

The other day I was on my laptop and pulled out the ac power cord, then the whole thing turned off. There was heaps of battery left so this shouldn't have happened. I thought it might be my cord since its old and frayed ALOT so brought a new one but the laptop won't turn on. It doesn't have the power light and doesn't do anything when I press the power button.

Any ideas?

Thanks! Anita

I have a Compaq Laptop model c700 series running Vista Basic. 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.
 

A:Compaq Laptop c700 need help

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.

Hi, a student of mine owns a compaq mini 110, CNU9312BR1, p/n NZ800EA#B1A and apparently is locked. But when I turn it on shows only <enter current password it doesn't give a lockout code so I can calculate withthe tool given in this forum the el****** reseting password. Anyway I tried writing the product name of the pc and the program gave me as a code : e9lof37pb3. When I try to enter this to the pc I notice that some keys are responding on the screen (showing a * when pressed and some not) is the keyboard broken also? or the mb perhaps? or is something else?

A:Compaq mini 110 bios lockout no code is given for reset pass...

Connect a USB keyboard to the mini notebook.  You can use it just as you can use the notebook's own keyboard. Press the power button and then when asked for the password, enter e9lof37pb3 and then press the enter key. e9lof37pb3 is the only system enable code for an HP mini.

A:factory restore on compaq c700?

I'd guess you can't, since you moved from Vista to Win 7. The OEM restore partition may have been deleted or rendered useless.

Maybe you can order recovery disks from HP/Compaq? Probably for a fee, if at all.

Why not reinstall Win 7 rather than go back to Vista?

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

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

Hiya

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...

BUT

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...

I look forward to your reply

Andy

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: http://ark.intel.com/products/29759/Intel-Core2-Duo-Processor-T7100-2M-Cache-1_80-GHz-800-MHz-FSB Hard to beat $6 from one of the better eBay laptop parts sellers, shipping included: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-2-Duo-Mobile-T7100-1-8-GHz-Laptop-Processor-CPU-LF80537GG0332M-SLA4A-/361357436636?hash=item542294e6dc:g:9DgAAOSwAKxWa70P If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi, Please answer following  1. how to achieve maximum upgrades for componentsCPU/ SODIMM considering configuration of model Compaq Presario C797EE mentioned at the end.  2. Why there is BIOS ver F.35 for Presario C700 when the latest offered is bios ver F.34 on HP web. Whats the difference. Where can I find both to download with release notes. Does new BIOS on C797EE model enables support processors like Intel Core 2 Duo X9000 and SODIMM PC6400 for 8GB? 3. There is testimony of successful upgrade here. Only difference is its not Compaq Presario C797EE but C771US and was able to upgrade CPU Core 2 Duo T9300. Is there any way to upgrade C700 series (C797EE) to Intel C2d Extreme X9000 CPU's. If not what is max for the chip-set used in C797EE. 4. TDP are different for Intel T9300 and others by 35W to 44W or any other factors, will they effect the upgrade, if yes then please provide list possible latest compatible CPU's with my current chip-set Below benchmarking applications are showing different results.

A:Compaq Presario C700 maximum upgrades. CPU/SODIMM

Hello, Just letting all  know that my upgrade worked. -ProcessorUpgraded  to intel T9300 as mention. probably could support x9000 but it was much expensive not worth -Memory:I was sceptical with going more than 4GB, however, currently its running 6GB (2 X 4 ). 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 1TBhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Hardware-Upgrades-Replacements/Dimension-of-DVD-CD-used-in-Compaq-Presario-C700/m-p/4926179 . 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

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'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

Hi,

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!

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!

If you mean when you plug in the system it pw ON, that is either a pw supply failure or a mb failure OR [very] remote chance of a failed switch/wiring. Usually the switch does not fail however anything can break. To test, swap in a known good pw supply. Given the age of that system, it is not worth putting much money into repairing. If the pw supply fixes the problem, great. If not, it [your system] is not worth installing a new mb. With big box systems, you either purchase the board from the mfg [prohibitively expensive] OR you attempt to install a standard board into the hp case; sometimes that works and sometimes it does not. Big box systems are proprietary ie the case, board, etc are made to HPs specs NOT industry standard specs. In addition, if you install a different mb, you need a new copy of windows, you cannot use the oem version of windows.

I've recently upgrade my graphics card on my Compaq and I think my 300 watt power supply may be struggling. I haven't upgraded it yet and I was trying to refrain from doing that, which is why I purchased the ATI hd6670 1gb Gddr5.

I was trying to adjust my power settings but I just can't seem to find the option to get into the bios. F11 is for system restore, F2 is boot menu, and ESC is settings. I went to ESC to check the settings, but there isn't anywhere to adjust bios in there. I tried all the other F keys with no luck.

Hi, I am trying to change my HDD mode from IDE to AHCI. My laptop is a HP Compaq 6715b running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. The motherboard make is HP. I can get into the BIOS but it has hardly an options that I can see of use (Overclocking,Voltages HDD..) So I did some research about updating and flashing, So I went over to the HP website and downloaded a update, It says my BIOS cannot be updated from windows so I then tried to make a disk and that failed. I have tried and tried and am hoping one of you guys can help me out.
Basically I need a way to change my HDD to AHCI or unlock every setting on my BIOS or a way to get to this setting by any means possible.

If you need any more info on my system then feel free to ask.

Thanks Guys.

Enabling AHCI is nothing like overclocking a hard drive, which doesn't exist. AHCI under most circumstances gives little to no benefit to mechanical hard drives, in some cases it can actually perform worse especially if paired with certain AHCI drivers.

I'm surprised that its not in AHCI mode already, generally Windows Vista and 7 generation laptops ship with AHCI enabled by default.
Have you properly verified its not enabled?

Also take a look at this: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...=3368540&prodTypeId=321957&objectID=c00758841
Use the same methods except instead of disabling AHCI, enable it.
