Compaq Presario CQ61 running Windows 7 Home Premium (build 7601) bought about 4 years ago.
Computer failed to restart after a period of sleep. I suspect that it doesn't have an automatic restart after automatic installation of an update - it's only a guess because I have no access to the computer at the moment, but I had a similar problem recently - on this occasion, I got a 'Safe Mode' start - by pressing F8 repeatedly gave me access to the appropriate screen. I've implemented subsequently by restoring the system to a point just before a automatic installation of a critical Windows Update, and that seemed to do the trick.
On this occasion the F8 route has no effect on the problem; the 'caps lock' and 'NumLock' continually of the blink just of LED (i.e. not a limited number of times), the fan starts, but there is no other sign of life. I tried a hard restart, but without result. I also removed and replaced memory, but once again no effect.
Can you please advise.
I'm so sorry I couldn't help you solve the problem, but maybe you could try to free the keyboard, nothing will happen if you do not lose the cpu and tight again. I know that the keyboard one is hard, persevering, best wishes.
I have 10 Windows upgrade on my compaq Presario cq61 free. I want to do a clean install of Windows 10. I downloaded the tool of Microsoft Media, made a key USB and DVD containing the clean install. I am told that the use of the flash player, I have to change the boot sequence in the bios. I tried everything from ESC, all numbers F and LED to try to enter the bios and all have failed. Told me that all I had to do with the DVD was just put it in and start the computer and the laptop would boot from the DVD and I could make my own installation from there. Which also failed. The only thing I have not tried is downgrade to Windows 7, affecting Windows 7 back to factory settings, then reinstall the free update of Windows 10. I would not have to go through all if I mostly because I bought the laptop from a friend and it was installed at the factory of Windows 7 and I don't got no disc software to the computer so I don't want to screw up and drop windows 7 without the appropriate software reinstall to match the product key.
Any help to enter in the bios or advice that could help me reach my goal would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some other suggestions.
1. start the machine in Windows 10.
Open settings and select System. Select food and sleep, and then click additional power settings - in the next window, click on "Choose what the power button" in the left pane.
In the next window, click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable" (close), then Remove the check mark from the box against 'Turn on a quick start (recommended) '. Click on the button Save the settings, and then close any open windows and stop the laptop by right clicking on the icon from the Start Menu, then select prompt (Admin) and click 'Yes' to the uac prompt.
Type (or copy and paste) the following command (including spaces) and click Enter.
Shutdown /s /t 0
Tap on the ESC key as soon as you turn it on and see if it will now access the Start Menu.
2 try to connect a keyboard external usb and see if this will allow you to access the Start Menu.

What is the problem with my Compaq Presario CQ61? Please help me with this.
Thank you very much.
I see you have power relative to problems with your HP computer. You did most of the troubleshooting that is appropriate for your question.
I'm including this link which has most of the troubleshooting steps that may solve your problem.
If you are unable to get any power on the computer, it is most likely a problem with the motherboard of the computer.
Please can you help me?
I have a compaq presario cq61 and I tried the code 3 times and a nother cod came
I saw that you will help many people, giving them a code
You are the very welcome.
I'm not a PC repair in commerce or training technology, but that you normally get the message means that the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.
Also, you need to reinstall the operating system on the hard drive of replacement (if you choose to replace it).

I use a PC Compaq Presario CQ61-411WM with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and I am not able to connect to the internet, because the PC does not detect the available wireless networks. The HP wireless assistant reported that the wireless device is disabled in the Device Manager. However, when I check the device under network adapters Manager, Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller does not display an error or a problem. I'm really very happy for any help with this. Thank you.
Well, the only thing I can think of to confirm that your wireless card did or didn't die is to go into your BIOS by pressing F10 at HP welcome screen and see if there is a configuration menu of devices and make sure that your wireless adapter is displayed.
If it does not appear, make sure that the setting is set to enabled.
If it is not, then I guess that the card is completely broken.
If it is listed and enabled in the BIOS, then you have a major software problem and my solution would be to save all the files you want to keep and perform a system recovery.

I just bought a Kingston HyperX Savage 240 GB ssd for my laptop, I had already upgraded to windows 10. The placement of the drive was a success, but during the 'clean' windows 10 installation asking the the disk drivers. I contacted the support service of Kingston, and they said this:
"Please note that we do not really any specific drivers, the SSD would benefit from the planned system of system.
Some systems may require a storage of pre-installation F6 driver, who usually provided by the manufacturer of the system in your case it would be HP.
We recommend to check the following:
-If it doesn't matter what Windows 10 associates BIOS update available for your system (make sure than his most recent available for your system)
-Pre-installation F6 for your system storage driver (check the site of HP for these drivers).
Then I updated my system to the latest version of the BIOS, but nothing has changed.
I looked on the HP site, but I can't find any "storage of pre-installation F6 driver" or any other driver for ssd, so I can't install windows and use my laptop. What I would do about this problem? Help, please!
Thank you very much!
