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.

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

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)

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.

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

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!

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.

A:lost power on password on hp15r

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.
 

A:2700US Presario Will not power up!

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.

A:audio and conexion internet lost Presario V6000 (RG298UA#ABA) Rev 1

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,
Mack1

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.

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.

Hello,

I bought a laptop about a year ago. Shortly after buying it, we lost the password before making a backup disk. I couldn't change the password, we run Windows 7, without the old password. Luckily, or so we think, we have one of those laptops that has a fingerprint scanner so I have been able to log on using my fingerprint as a password. However, I can't believe that I am locked out of changing the passwords on this computer.

I have learned my lesson! Always back it up first! But for now, I need some help. I am also a little worried that I may have been hacked into. A friend said that if your password all of a sudden doesn't work, that is a sign of a hacker. That is what it felt like happened to me. I swear I thought I had the password right, then all of a sudden it stops working.

Thanks so much-Bill

I have windows 7 on a bootable USB drive but it gives me the same error when trying to boot from the usb drive. when i try to enter bios to rearrange the boot order it's asking for a password and i have no idea what it is. It's giving me a code # 54391904 any way i can reset password or still boot from USB drive? thank you in advance
