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

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 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.

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 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 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.

   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?

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

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

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

Ok guys, its embarrassing...I'm stumped.
Customer sound was working....wiped his drive and did a full system restore from his cd's to fix a different problem (son had hidden tons of porno and he wanted it ALL gone..hehe) and now I have NO sound.

Tried updated drivers from compaq with no success.

Nothing muted, sound appears to play when I test the system sounds, no error messages but no sound. Directx diag says all is happy.

no irq conflicts, clean startup, open to suggestions.

model is Compaq Presario 705US. I used both sp20309 and sp19165 for drivers.

Neither worked.
 

A:Presario 705us notebook...no sound after system restore.

I couldn't find your exact model number. closest I could find was here.

http://wwss1pro.compaq.com/support/home/index.asp?countrycode=1000&catid=698&famid=699&prodid=56|Presario+700

Now for the usual questions. Are the external speakers plugged tightly into the correct sound output connection, are they powered on? and is the external speaker volume set where you can hear it? Have you tryed them on a different computer? Do you have the speaker icon in your right lower taskbar. Do you have the correct audio device selected under audio output in multimedia? Is this an onboard sound (is there onboard sound and an external sound card installed?)

(Actually I'm just giving ideas here, I know you can fix it)

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 bought this Notebook right after I got out of basic training 2 and a half months ago and I have a major problem. It was working fine up until a couple days ago and I haven't been able to use it since then. What happens is whenever I connect the power it turns on the processor and thats it, nothing comes up on the screen and the hard drive doesn't seem to engage. The hard drive light doesn't come on and nothing else happens. I try switching to the battery power and it does the same thing. This is a major problem for me because theres not much to do here besides play around on the computer, I'm 2800mi from my home in the states, I'm on an island in the Azores, out in the Atlantic. Please help me out, I'm at work so I hope someone see this soon. Also, try to suggest things that I can do to fix,reason being , I'm far as hell away from everywhere and it would be quite expensive to send this thing back to Compaq. Thanks
 

A:Presario Notebook Problem

Try it without the battery connected. If that doesn't work it will need to go back to Compaq. If its only 2 1/2 months it should be under warranty - this is a hardware problem. They should pay for shipping, or at least some of it since you're in a unique situation.

Sorry, without laptops there's not much to try in such a situation

Ok so I got a presario 1200US. No OS. SO I installed XP Pro.

No audio drivers.Iwent to HP.com online chat with a tech. And after about 6-12 drivers I get no sound. I checked many drivers. Not working. We checked the administative controlls for the automatic/manual on boot up stuff and audio is on automatic. We've tried almost everything, and thats why I need you to fill that gap. Hence I said almost.

- Im not stupid hah nothings on mute.

- I tried speakers on the laptop, and two sets of WORKING headphones.

- I checked the BIOS. And if any of you have a Presario 1200 you konw the BIOS is primative. It only has Video memory options, BIOS password, and boot options. No onboard audio/video that you'd expect. Maby theres an update for the BIOS that has that option?

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.

Hi, all. I always turn to you guys for help as I'm only a newbie. I have a two weeks old Compaq Presario R3240US with 512 ram & 60gig.

I was installing a bunch of programs and all of a sudden, I got the "A necessary component for this function is missing or damaged (c:\symantec antivirus\novapw32.dll)". Then the system alerted me to antivirus protection not being on then eventually firewall protection not being on as well without disabling them from my end. Last program I installed before all this hassel was the "Norton antivirus corporate ed.(?)" and I ended virus scan before it was completed because it took so long. I did have the regular Norton antivirus on my system but wanted to upgrade to corporate version thinking it was better. I tried to uninstall them but I can't even open 'remove program' from my control panel. As matter of fact, I can't open anything! I rebooted it up by taking the battery out so I could even reboot but it didn't help. I was able to access a few app on my numerous reboots (when I could've) but very limited. Semantec(norton) did take me to a webpage where they described how to check for virus. My computer couldn't even do that.

I have a HP Presario CQ62 notebook that just totally died.
I closed it up after using it normally, came back and opened the lid and it was dead. No lights, not even power supply indicator light. Nothing happens when the power button is pushed of course.
I thought and hoped it was a faulty power supply and a flat battery, but I have a spare power supply so this was able to be ruled out.
Not that it's relevant here, but it's running Windows 7 64 bit.
Anyone got any ideas where to look for a solution to this? As it won't fire up on battery or power it has to be after those.

I am trying to help a friend out. He has a Presario F700 notebook, part#KC492UA#ABC, that is running win 7 ultimate retail. It has stopped working. When the notebook power supply is plugged in that blue light goes on and there is power to the notebook but there is nothing after that. I can hear the computer trying to boot, the fan is working and its a bit warm around that area, but i think that might be normal. I plugged in a known good external lcd but that didnt help. But there might be a key to press, like FN, to get an external monitor to work, i dont know in this case since its not my notebook. He doesnt even get the bios info, all he gets is a blank screen, so maybe an external monitor wouldnt work either? I should point out that when i attempt to boot this laptop i dont get any beeps at all.

Help would certainly be appreciated.

The problem that I have is with a Presario 2188cl. AMD 2500 proc, 768 ram,40 gig seagate. I cannot boot from drive. I can boot from winxp disc, format, then start install. The setup files write to the disk, but when the computer reboots to start the install, it will sometimes sit at a blank screen with a curser. Other times it will print characters. They change with different setups:I the drive was formatted in NTFS= "SlSl", in FAT32= "PU7" although the 7 is really more of a 90 degree right angle. If I have the winxp disk in and let it go past the "press any key..." so that it boots from the drive it prints "KAKA" with two dots above the "A"s.

When I boot an ERD Commander disc, I can see all the setup files on the disk.
I even hooked the drive up to my desktop, installed xp, it ran great. But when I hook it back up to the laptop, same thing.

Hi all,
This is an older notebook, running Win 98 that I'm trying to get working
better for a friend. I went ahead and formatted the drive not anticipating
any problems with reinstalling Win 98. Basically what is going on is that
after formatting, etc. it won't read from the cd rom drive. I have done a
lot of troubleshooting with various boot disks, etc. but I think it needs a
proprietary Compaq driver for the cd rom. I have searched all over the net
but can't come up with one. None of the generic drivers with any boot disk
will work. Also, due to it's age and that she is not the original owner, she
has no software of any kind that came with it.
If anyone either has these drivers or knows how I can get them I would
appreciate it.

I tried to install windows onto my laptop. It went through the set up process, but when it got to the install part, I got an error message stating that Windows could not find a HDD installed on my computer. So, thinking something was wrong with the HDD, I bought a new Wester Digital HDD. After installing the new HDD, I again tried installing windows, with the same outcome. Someone has told me that Compaq is bad about putting "blinder" codes in their BIOS to hide the HDD from being overwritten. I called Compaq Tech Support, but because my warranty is out, they wanted an arm and a leg to "help". Is there any truth to this? Does anyone have a solution for this problem?
 

A:Replacing HDD in Compaq Presario Notebook

If this is a SATA hard drive, you need to install SATA controller drivers at the F6 prompt. Since this procedure needs a floppy drive and you probably don't have one, go into the BIOS and see if you can change the controller from SATA or AHCI mode to IDE mode. If have this option, then Setup should continue.

Hello!

This laptop keeps shutting down every once in a while. Sometimes every few minutes or every few half hours. Blue terrible screen appears but i am desperate becauce it doesn't last for more than a microsecond so i totally cannot read what it displays and so i don't even know what the problemis :(

It started just very rarely, when i was playing graphically demanding game. Then it worsened when i started using video calling on skype. I reinstalled the operating system (Windows 7) via recovery manager (i have a recovery disc) and it worked better for about a week time, then it worsened and now it was restarting and showing the blue screen every 7 minutes approximately.

I again reinstalled the Windows by the same precodure but there's been one crash already again.

Could you please tell me how to at least identify the problem? How can i make the screen last longer and see what the hell's going on? And then, how could i possibly mend the problem? What could be the cause? Is hardware or software issue? It used to crash only when doing something more "graphical" but now it occures whenever, even when i do literally nothing with it!

Here's the problem: the modem in my father-in-law's Compaq Presario 1270 notebook stopped working about a week ago. According to ITS Diagnostics the modem is a Lucent V90 56K PCI unit (it is internal).

Symptoms: In testing, both Windows and ITS modem diagnostics report they can't open the COM port (we've had it on both COM1 and COM2, no difference). Also, as soon as the modem is physically connected to a phone line it seems to generate a lot of noise on the line--before we even try to have it dial up his ISP.

We have downloaded new drivers from Compaq, done a remove-and-reinstall under Windows 98 a couple of times, and switched the device from COM2 to COM1 and back. The modem appears on Device Manager with "this device is functioning properly" but still doesn't work and still generates a lot of noise.

We have NOT physically pulled the modem; I have never been inside a notebook and am a little hesitant as the machine is under warranty. (I should mention again that the modem is a PCI internal, not a PCMIA card.)

Jack and I would appreciate any suggestions, as Compaq's first advice was to reformat the hard drive !

Thanks in advance--

Don S.

If it makese static as soon as you plug it into the line, the modem is bad. It probably got hit with some bad line noise / static / surge and got damaged.

Either buy a PC Card modem and use it instead, or back up everything you care about and give it to Compaq to have it fixed. They will, most likely, wipe the drive, even though there is no reason to do so.

How much do you think it will cost to fix that? and do you know where I can order the parts?


the entire right side of the lcd screen is off the hinge and i can lift it up. I don't have a camera, so that's the best I could do to explain what is wrong with my laptop.

Alright. Please, somebody help me. This is just plain annoying. I have a Compaq Notebook Presario 2402 US that I got recently. It came preinstalled with XP Home. I wanted to format and instead install XP Pro from a CD that I have already.

Surprise, surprise. The dang laptop won't boot from the XP Pro cd but boots up fine with the recovery XP Home cd that it comes with.

I read somewhere that Compaq and HP block the computer from reading other OS's. Don't know why.

The question is, how do I unlock it?

I don't want to install XP Home and then upgrade to XP Pro.
Checked Bios. It is the latest version.

Someone please help.

Hello, I am currently studying to become a computer repair technician, and as hands-on practice I would like to take a look at  an old computer of mine. Before i do so i would like to know the specs of the computer (Compaq Presario A909US Notebook PC), but since I haven't seen the charger in years, I cannot access my computer's specs through windows. I am wondering if anyone knows or can help me find the specs before i open it up.

I wanted to upgrade my memory in my Compaq Presario 2100 Notebook. I had the original 256 mb but was sharing with video driver so only had 192. In the specs it indicated I could upgrade to 1 gb. The store I visited did not have a 1 gb so I purchased 2 512mb. It is only recognizing 1 of them. What I bought was 2 - KVR333SO/512R PC2700 CL2.5 200 pin SODIMM. The salesman at the store said adding a 2700 instead of a 2100 would be ok because it would drop down to what it was needed. Is this not true? Could this be the reason it will not recognize both cards for a total of 1024? Thanks,

Niece

I have a presario 2100 series (2170CA) notebook that has a dead 2200+ XP-M thoroughbred core CPU 256k L2 Cache 266mhz bus.

Does anyone know if presario notebooks like this will support a Barton mobile core. I was wanting to replace it with a 2500+ XP mobile barton.

It should be upgradeable. They use the same socket. Some laptops aren't CPU-upgradeable though, the best place to check is the manufacturer's website.

Hi All,

Discovered the forum whilst troubleshooting a BSOD i keep getting on my notebook.

I don't have any specifics other than the dump file attached as this is a shared notebook and all users get the bsod which then requires a manual power cycle to log back on.

I have run the hp diagnostics utility using F2 at startup and all tests passed.

All assistance is much appreciated.

Cheers.

Okay I have a Compaq Notebook 3.25gb running Windows xp home. Okay this is the problem... it wont boot anymore (not a laptop tech). Now I've removed the battery and plugged It into the AC Outlet...still no power.. so I'm thinking okay maybe it's the plug...Not!! I place that same hp adapter to another laptop and it works fine. Can anyone provide some instructions on what steps I should take now. I'm thinking it's the board itself or the pin connector on the laptop... thanks in advance here

Some older CD drives do have problems reading cd's.. Most of the new drives are labeled Multi read Not much you can do about it other then change the drive..

Make sure that you try a burned disk from another source or person... Just to make sure it is not a error in the way the others are burned..
