Compaq Presario CQ57
8 Gig of Kingston Ram
Windows 7
Vipre anti virus
MS office 2010
Small Business machine
 
This is my business PC I need it to interview candidates but it is very sluggish , with 4 small Excel  sheets open at times it becomes unresponsive. I have erased the HD twice and restored to factory defaults  only to have the same problem  with 6-8 weeks.
 
 
My first move was to update the 2 gig of Ram to 8 Gig but no noticeable  difference , I have Vipre and I ran memtest over 16 passes with no errors. My back up PC is doing better with only 2 Gig of Ram

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

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!

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.

A:presario CQ57 (319WM) Performance problems

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.

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. I really do appreciate it a lot. Sincerely, Thumper7771976

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. Post back if you want additional specific suggestions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find 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.

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.

   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

------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

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?

Please give me something that will fit in the case and I don't need overkill. Thanks!
 

A:Need new PSU for my Presario

Most power supplies will fit the case. Just watch out for the power plug socket location.

Such online sites as www.directron.com, www.newegg.com, www.frys.com, www.techdepot.com, and many others have good ones...

Our favorites for high perfomance and low cost are Seasonic, FSP Group, Sparkle, PC Power and Cooling and Corsair... None of those have ever failed for us (knock on wood). OCZ most models. Antec has some turkeys, but most are good.

But with that Presario, your performance will always suffer due to the motherboard and the CPU combination.

Need to know exact model. It might be an Intel Core Duo as opposed to a Core 2 Duo which is a 32 bit processor and cannot run a 64 bit OS regardless. The BIOS might recognize 4 gigs of RAM but the 32 bit OS can only actually address something like 3.25 or 3.5 gigs. The AMD models are 64 bit processors but the early ones F749 and lower are hardware limited to 2 gigs of RAM but are known to be able to run 3 gigs but not 4.

I think it may just me, but in the fast few days I've been concerned. My computer is still stock and VERY Zippy at times.
As of Sunday I was trying to add CWM to my Android and had to figure out some of the best software, I had to install a few drivers to do this. Upon me doing this and finishing, I uninstalled the programs to notice my computer being a bit slow!
I do a defragment and virus scan almost every day. Some of the many few driver I had to install said that they 'This program could be dangerous for your computer, would you like to allow?'
I went ahead and installed them anyway and didn't see anything change in the way the computer acted.
I uninstalled the programs and noticed I was going a bit slower.
Not sure.

I have a Compaq Presario Notebook model 80XL550, series CA2001. It has an external USB floppy disk which is useless for booting to DOS mode, and an external CD-ROM drive that connects to what looks sort of like an external miniature SCSI connector. (To be clear, I have no knowledge that this is an SCSI port, just that it looks like one.)

I assumed the Windows ME OS was corrupt because it would not recognize the touchpad or a USB mouse, or any other USB device plugged into a USB port.

I discovered it has a system restore partition. Not knowing how to access the system restore and needing the replace the CMOS battery anyway, I disassembled the machine, replaced the CMOS battery, took the hard disk to a desktop computer and used PowerQuest's Drive Image to restore the system restore image to drive C.

Upon turning it on, I get the following screen immediately before any Compaq logo or blinking cursor:

I was given a Compaq desktop that was running ME, and decided to install XP Home with SP2. Well, it was very slow...as one could imagine. I checked the 2 ram slots and found 2-128mb of PC-100 SyncDram installed. However, it didn't match what XP was telling me I had available in My Computer (and also with SIW). XP said I only have 128mb total. I swapped around the modules to see if I had a bad slot, but it showed 128mb anyway I installed them.

My question..can the system be showing 128mb in series instead of parallel? I don't have any extra PC-100 lying around (who does) to check it. Some of the older machines would not allow 2-64's, 2-128's, etc. However, this machine (BIOS) was made in April of 2001. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?? Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a Compaq Presario 700 Notebook (XP Pro OS) that was working fine yesterday and this morning NOTHING! No warnings--no error messages. When I hit the power-on button, the LCD lights up, but nothing else happens--no fan, no hard drive spinning, nothing on screen--no activity at all. If I plug the power cord in, the orange (power connected) LCD lights on the laptop and the separate laptop cooling board connected to the laptop's rear USB port comes on. So there is definitely power getting to the laptop. But I cannot open the CD drive--even when the LCD power light is lit. Does this mean the mother board is fried--or could it just be a bad fan? Help!
 

A:Presario 700 Dead-Help!

Check and reseat the battery in the laptop. Then, plug it in the wall and let it sit for awhile. Then try to start it up again.

If that fails, it looks like you might have to contact the manufacturer of the laptop to see about possibly exchanging the laptop or sending it in for repair.

The real pain of a laptop is that they aren't upgradeable like desktops and the components are proprietary...So what might be a fixable problem swapping a component from home on a desktop is a big time-consuming RMA hassle on a laptop!

I have purchased a Compaq Presario 600 with an Athlon XP 2200+ processor. I do not have a copy of Windows XP to wipe it with. Is there any way with the installed XP that I can refresh this system and remove data frome previous owners? Or Can I load Win 98?
 

A:Compaq Presario 600 ??

Compaqs usually have a hidden partition with all the factory loaded software on it in an image format. As long as it does and you can figure out how to access it you could probable do that - but you almost likely need the XP Product key and may need to reactivate XP after the recovery. XP can only be install on one machine at a time - so if they are still using it you are out of luck.

I am working on a Compaq presario 4860 which currently has a Pentium II processor. Is it feasible, possible to upgrade this machine to a higher processor? If so what do you recommend in terms of processors and can you send me step by step installation procedures? Thanks. You guys are wonderful.
 

A:upgrade a presario

That has a 333mhz CPU. You may be able to go up to a 500 but the performance increase would be minimal if noticable at all. Adding more RAM would probably help more than a CPU. For less than 300 dollars, you can get a new 2.8ghz PC with some bells and whistles. Put that old one in the closet for a back up.

Alright i bought a brand new Hp compaq Presario V6000 in 2007. I used it for college and its been working for me until last week. I remember when i went to bed the screen went all nuts. Im not sure if it crashed. Also i changed the battery preferences to save energy and im pretty sure that killed the battery cuz i had to plug it in to work it from then on. Now when i power it up. the screen is blank and doesnt boot up.The power light turns on with the wifi light and hear it booting up for 5 seconds and then dies. Did my computer crash or is this a easy fix by replacing the battery for it. I really need to know whats wrong with my computer cuz i cant keep on using my roommates. Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have this Compaq Presario that's fairly new. I don't spend much time playing games on it but I do like to a couple of times a week. So I want to set it up so it will have no problems running any game.
I'm not looking for super performance. I just want it to be able to run any given game without lagging or freezing up. Currently I can't seem to run demanding games like Painkiller or Doom3.
I installed a BMG nVidia GeForce FX 5500 oc to take care of that pathetic onboard vid.
I haven't made any other changes but here are the rest of the specs:
Celeron 351 (P) 3.2 GHz
Socket 775
Asus P5RC-LA
512mb 240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM

Would beefing up the ram do the trick alone?
I want to keep the price to a minimum since I don't play much and again, I'm not looking to make a super machine out of it. Just something I can get by with.
Links to any suggested parts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

just finished reading a 3 year long thread of about 500 posts about the same problem with presario laptops (the GLO syndrome), green light on and no post syndrome.
I have a couple of these myself and have not yet removed and replaced just about everything on it like all others have done.
does anybody have news about this or nobody cares anymore?
A mystrious chip, the NSC9948ab, the keyboard and who knows what else controler is my suspect#1, although in the later developments number of people found the solution in replacing the NEW TSOP with a socket and PLCC eprom chip. (somehow they decided that the original chips were faulty with a short between pin31&32, others pins10&11)
I think the microcode in the NSC is faulty and there actually is an update for it (not too well known)
I shall apreciate any inspirational input about this and like to hear from anyone this concerns. later
 

A:presario laptop

OK, let me refraze the question: Does anybody have a compaq laptop that actually works?
PS.: the NSC9948ab is a don't care #, it's PC87570-ICC\VPC. this everything contoler chip has numerous timers for X number of system events and may acctually be sending a disable signal to the AT49F002T since it's reset pin is actually conected contrary to the Atmel data sheet: RESET: A RESET input pin is provided to ease some system
applications. When RESET is at a logic high level, the
device is in its standard operating mode. A low level on the
RESET input halts the present device operation and puts
the outputs of the device in a high impedance state. If the
RESET pin makes a high to low transition during a program
or erase operation, the operation may not be successfully
completed and the operation will have to be repeated after
a high level is applied to the RESET pin. When a high level
is reasserted on the RESET pin, the device returns to the
read or standby mode, depending upon the state of the
control inputs. By applying a 12V 0.5V input signal to the
RESET pin, the boot block array can be reprogrammed
even if the boot block lockout feature has been enabled
(see Boot Block Programming Lockout Override section).
The RESET feature is not available for the AT49F002T.

A friend of mine has a Compaq Presario 5460. The factory hdd is super slow pio. The dumb bios is tamper proof and has no options for anything. If I put a 30 gig hdd in there will it autodetect? I've installed xp/pro and 256 megs ram. Everything works faster now but the hard disk is unbearable. >>>edit<<< Ok the mobo is a Gigabyte GA5SMM. I have downloaded the non Compaq bios for this board. If it'll go in there no prob. If not I guess I can let them borrow a spare hdd and see if it detects it. Will a Compaq take the new Gigabyte bios or reject it? Has anyone out there ever tried?
