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

Hi all, I have searched all over the internet and cannot find anything that tells me whether I can upgrade the processor in my laptop. I currently run an Athlon XP-M 2400+, and I would like to upgrade it to an Athlon XP-M 3000+. I am pretty sure I will need a new bios, and the chip is supported by the motherboard. Can anyone help me find a bios that will work? Or is it just not possible to upgrade my laptop. . .

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

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.

The normal battery that came with the laptop is 10.8v 4090mah. However, the battery is now weak and I'm looking to replace 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.

   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?

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

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!

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 have a Compaq Presario SR5413WM which according to HP I can upgrade the processor. I upgraded the RAM a couple of years ago, and the machine runs fine, but was curious to know if it was worth upgrading the processor.

My current processor is AMD Athlon LE-1640

Operating speed: Up to 2.7 GHz
Number of cores: 1
Socket: AM2
Bus speed: 2000 MT/s

according to HP I can upgrade it to
Socket type: AM2
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:

Athlon 64 up to 3800+
Athlon 64 X2 with Dual Core technology up to 4800+ (up to 65 watt TDP)
Sempron - All

I have copied this info from HP's website, and it really doesn't mean much to me, but was hoping that you guys could help!

I have a Compaq Presario 8000T (P4 Socket 478) here that I am having trouble putting a processor into. It came originally with a 2200-MHz that died. I put a 2000 into it and I got an error on boot that I needed a BIOS update to support the new clocking and I had to press F1 to continue the boot. After that, everything worked fine. The "Press F1 to Continue" message was annoying so I removed that processor and returned it.

I later installed a BIOS update and inserted a 2400-MHz. The F1 message is now gone; but, the 2400 is running at 1800 MHz. Compaq is no help as I didn't get the processor from them.

The 2200 processors aren't available at a reasonable price; they are rare and seem to all cost more than a 2600 and I just can't seem to bring myself to pay that premium for the chip. I considered a 2.26-MHz processor; but, with the problems I've had with the 2400, I'm not sure I want to spend over a hundred dollars and find more problems.

A 2200 processor would solve the problem; but, I can't find them priced reasonably.

Does anyone here have any suggestions?

hey...im new here....i was wondering if anyone could help me...i have a Compaq presario V2000.....it has a celeron M 1.4ghz processor....i bought a 2ghz pentium IIII and tried booting with it in and it didnt boot...so im wondering if the motherboard supports it or not...or if u just fried the processor(which would suck)
 

A:pentium IIII 2ghz processor in a Compaq Presario V2000

Did you buy a Pentium 4, or a Pentium M? There is a difference, and I believe that only the Pentium M will work in that motherboard. Also, it has to be a Dothan or Sonoma core. If you're not sure which one you have, post the code on the CPU here, and we can figure it out from that. It should be printed on the metal part of the CPU.

This is only for the ones that like me love their old gear to bits and try to bring it up to a level, where it may still be of some use...

I managed to get this little sweatheart to run Win 95, got it networked and have it access the internet. But the next bottleneck is the capacity of its hard drive...only 220 mb, that means after installing win95, there is only 32 mb left to play with...I have one 1GB and one 4.3 GB hard drive, that I tried to install in this computer. They both would run, but unfortunately the bios does not seem to accept any larger hard disc space than 220 mb and uses only this amount on either hard drives...Is there a way around this problem or am I stuck with 220 mb for good????

Would be grateful for any advice that gets me out of this...

Hello;

I have had a Compaq Presario 1500 laptop for about 2 years now, and I am quite un-satisfied when it comes to multi-tasking several applications at the same time. Sometimes it is so slow that I cannot minimize a full-screen application to read up on something on the net. I currently only have 256 megs of ram, but I read on the internet that tihs model could have up to 1 gigabyte. This is great, but therein lies my question. The laptop has two ram slots, one of which has been empty since i got the computer. Could I get a gig of ram and still keep the 256y meg stick as an added boost? or is the 1 gig the maximum for both slots?
 

A:Compaq Presario RAM upgrade

Well if your laptop supports a maximum of 1gb then that means 512mb per RAM slot.
Here are a few links on Newegg which is the Maximum Memory you could get for your Laptop. This is if you are in USA

I am upgrading a Compaq Presario 5000 model #5WB220 with a very low 15 GB hard drive for a friend. It currently has Windows ME and there is no Compaq Restore CD.

I have increased the memory to 320 by adding an additional 256 MB RAM.

I am wanting to totally replace the 15GB hard drive with an 80 GB hard drive and load Windows XP Home.

The problem I am finding out is that Compaq has propriertory info on a partition within the existing drive. From what I understand without the Restore CD, I can't put the new drive in.

I'm wondering if there are any other alternatives to doing this.

Can I install XP on the existing drive and then transfer all the data (to include the compaq proprietory info) to the new drive in a slave position?

It had vista on when I bought it, but I wiped that and installed Linux. Linux tells me it currently has the following:

I assume from that I can put a 1gB stick into the 64 slot?

Do I need to take the current sticks out to determine what type it is, and how to I decipher that information?

Hi:

Here's the problem:

Someone asked me to see if I could upgrade an early (old) Compaq Presario 5WV254 computer. The first thing I did was max out the RAM (768MB) using Crucial's 'certified' Compaq modules.

This dinosaur has a 40GB hard drive and an nVidia 8MB graphics card. I placed Windows XP Pro into the drive and proceeded to format the drive with NTFS. Everything went smoothly, and the machine rebooted after installing the drivers, etc.

Unfortunately, instead of continuing to proceed with the usual installation process, it starts the initial setup process over and over (I let this happen about 7 times) and will not complete the installation.

I've performed upgrades on lots of these older Compaq Presarios, but have never encountered this before.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how this issue can resolved?

Thanks in advance.

1) Memory.com & Crucial.com say that the maximum memory for this computer is 256 MB, while Kingston.com says that the maximum possible is 512 MB. The computer has two RAM Slots (64 MB & a 32 MB). Who is right?

2) On the package of the new, ill purchased, 128 MB PC 133, it shows also 16x64. What does this mean? Should I watch out for these numbers during my next trip to BEST BUY?

Hey guys, been a while since I last posted here.
Alright so recently I got myself a Compaq Presario SR1000 which I stumbled across in my local market after buying some new gear for work, the PC is fully refurbished and was W-XP and now W-7 after a complete format of the hard drive and sticking Windows 7 on.
Also got myself a decent enough graphics card for the PC games I currently own.

Okay now so, eh...The computer itself is very old and the hardware within it before I had installed the new graphics card which is a Radeon HD 6670 is say more than five years old at least, I'm wanting to turn this computer into a new gaming PC and so I'm looking for a new motherboard.

I'm not sure at the moment of what type motherboard it is, but I'm thinking its a MATX (Mid-ATX) board.
I'm wondering though if anyone knows of any other motherboard that would fit the Presario SR1000?

A:Compaq Presario SR1000 motherboard upgrade

If you want to upgrade, along with a new motherboard, you will need new memory, CPU, CPU cooler and power supply at a minimum. Basically you are building a brand new computer. As cases are relatively inexpensive I would also go with a better case that has more cooling as it will be needed for a "gaming" system. Factory PC cases are not usually designed with the cooling needed for a gaming PC. Also consider Compaq Presario computers (and cases) are the "low end" or "inexpensive" line from HP.

It says that the max RAM that this laptop can handle is 512MB per slot (which is what i have right now).

Does this mean i can't upgrade to 1GB per slot in order to have 2GB on this laptop?? If so was the software wrong?

The laptop was purchased in '06 and originally ran Windows Vista, however I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit a couple of days ago, and have had an issue finding compatible drivers, namely a driver for my nVidia graphics card. HP's website has the drivers for XP and Vista, but want to charge me to get 7 compatible drivers (59.99 for a one-time use). I've read on other forums that it is possible to take the non-manufacturer drivers and modify the .INF files to work, but I'm inexperienced with that sort of stuff. Can anyone offer some advice or walk me through this? The card is an nVidia GeForce 6150. If there are any other details I've left out, I'd be happy to add them. Thanks in advance.
EDIT: In the event that I can't secure the proper drivers, does anyone know if Linux is an option for such a machine? Or would the same driver issues be present?

A:Solved: HELP!! Motherboard upgrade for ED878AA Compaq Presario SR1630

With all the parts you are looking at changing,you would probably
be better off buying a new computer case and building from
scratch.
If you change the motherboard and cpu,you won't be able
to use the oem operating system that came with your computer.
Buying a case can keep you from having to deal with the
proprietary connections in the compaq.
You should be able to use the drives from the compaq.
That way you can use whatever motherboard fits your new case.

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

I have a Presario CQ57. It has AMD C50 Dual Core processor, 2GB RAM, running Windows 7 Home Premium. This thing is very slow. Even after a reformat and disabling unnecessary start up programs and uninstalling unwanted bundled programs, this thing runs super slow. I have had Word as the only running program and when typing, I still have to wait for the computer to catch up. What gives?

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: 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.

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. 
I am at a complete loss as to what can be degrading the overall performance of t... Read more

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.
