Computer does not start after the screen of the bios, Compaq Presario SR1023WM

Ok. Trying to fix a friend's computer and seem to have met a strange barrier.

Problem: The computer does not start after the bios screen.

Details: When you turn on the computer, the compaq logo with intel inside is and has the < F1 Setup > and < F10 System Recovery > options listed as well.  And that's it as far as the computer becomes.  After that the computer just locked up, no work of buttons on the keyboard lights keyboard ect ect.  I tried the puree on the F1 key, as soon as I turn on the computer and I can handle so he can say * entering setup * but it freezes again after this point.  I already tried to eliminate the possible sources of the problem, removed all expansion cards, HDD and Dvd Rom module only disconnected, only memory (256 MB ddr 2700), power, vga and keyboard connected.  Ive also used the jumper on the motherboard to clear the cmos, hoping that would solve the problem without success.  I tried using a different memory stick and different memory as well...  Tried to use both a ps2 and a usb keyboard... Ive even tried pulling the rider for the protection of the bios password (even if she did not have a password on it, just try everything I can think of).

The installed bios version is 3.1, and that's all that I know on the computer at this point, except that the website tells me to him. & LC = on & CC = US & DLC = in & Submit.y = 5 & Submit.x = 3 & lang = to & CC = US <-link to the Web page for the model #.

I'm basically at a loss on this one, so if someone feels scroll line-by-line of their brains on this one, I'd be very happy.

I have a pretty strong understanding of computer repair, so feel free to give me something to try.

If you need more information out of me, let me know as well.

Try to clear the CMOS again but this time remove CMOS battery and hold the power button on a few seconds. Replace the battery, then try to start back to the top.

At the back of the pc is the condition of the PSU led green or flashing?

    Hi dhanushm,

    1. What happens after the Windows logo screen?
    2. You receive an error message?
    3. You have security software installed on the computer?
    4. Have you performed an installation clean Windows XP and even after that this problem exists?

    Method 1

    As the computer starts up fine in safe mode there is a possibility that some third-party programs installed on the computer is the origin of the problem.

    I suggest that you configure the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See section to learn more about how to clean boot.

    How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State

    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    1. Click Start , and then click run.
    2. Type msconfig , and then click OK.
      The System Configuration utility dialog box appears.
    3. Click the general tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services , and then click OK.
    4. When you are prompted, click restart to restart the computer.

  • You can save a broken computer? My computer does NOT start after the blue hp screen.

    In the past months, my computer has been the object of a freezing randomly, and Ctrl + Alt + Delete does not work. I stopped him via the power button. Sometimes, when I start it again, the computer moniter shows nothing but a black screen and the computer sounds different when it starts normally. When this happens, I turn it off again hit the left side of the desktop and turn on again. Whenever I do this, the computer starts normally, and I go on the computer use.

    Yesterday morning, after a break of 2 days, acess my computer and it is random freezing thing once again. I force close down as one normally do, and the computer does not start and displays the same black screen and the same fan/air weird sound. I stopped him and I hit the side RIGHT this time, I think and when I turn on the computer, the usual blue HP screen appears with the establishment, boot, diagnostics and system recovery things. HOWEVER, after this screen, a black screen will appear with this weird blue symbol on the upper left corner, I have never seen this and it looks like a circle with a triangle and a Pentagon below and it remains essentially on this screen forever. When I try to hit the establishment, boot, diagnostics and the shortcuts to system recovery, on the lower left side of the screen, it says "Menu boot loading...". ' or whatever the shortcut of loading represents, but nothing ever happens. When I press the other keys, this tapping noise comes from the computer at each tap of the keyboard.

    I have no idea what to do, and at this point, my first priority is to save important files on the computer. Does anyone know what is the problem? I want her more than a problem of system rather than a virus problem because refusing the boot black screen thing lasts for years. My computer is 3-4 years. I enclose a sketch of what looks like the weird symbol.


    With the flash drive, I was able to access the BIOS, which before, I couldn't.

    Eventually my computer was in some strange sort of lockdown setting, I switched it back to activate and now its work! I remember save important things in the future. Thank you very much for your help!

  • Computer does not start after the screen goes blank &amp; Compaq.


    A few weeks ago, I turned on my PC and it showed at the Compaq screen and then went to a blank screen & would not respond. I held the switch button to turn it off and after 4 attempts, it start fine. Next time, it took 20 attempts to initialize and now it does not start, it will be maybe if I try like 100 times he can do... The problem is when the Compaq screen comes up it comes only for like a second so I know that it does not start, if the Compaq screen stays for a few seconds as 3 + I know it will load windows and start.

    History > the computer originally had XP and has been replaced with VISTA memory was 2 * 512MB, but it was a bit slow and I was advised to upgrade. I bought 2 * 1 GB memory and put it in my PC a few months there may be 5 + had no problem so far.

    I tried the following:

    Remove the memory and replace it. Remove the 2 * 1 GB of memory and its replacement by the Moose 2 * 512MB to check if the memory is at fault.

    Cleaning of the dust around the fan (at this point, I removed the fan over the CPU and cleaned the thermal compound from the CPU to make it nice and shiny, only tried to start one time after that for a few seconds heard blowing fan and turend it took off. Depuis_lors, I realized that it wasn't just muck and had a purpose na derwiche put a little more on)

    Remove the battery of the BIOS for half a day

    Move jumpers CMOS from1, 2 to 2, 3 positions

    I can not get into the same if BIOS start and hold F1 he will show me the BIOS for a second and then go to a black screen.

  • M127FW MFP: Computer does not start after the installation of the MFP M127FW

    My computer does not start on my hard drive after installation of my new printer MFP M127FW unless I have first of all disconnect the USB cable between the printer and then turn on the computer.  My BIOS is set to boot from my drive hard, not from a USB key, so that makes installing the drivers M127FW MFP and software do on my computer?  I guess it has something to do with the Smart Install feature.

    "On the printer, press Setup, maintenance, Smart Install and stop."

    It worked.  Thank you.

  • NB200 does not start after the bios - screen black screen with blinking cursor


    I was using the laptop as usual when I think there may have been a virus activity - reason I say that is that my anti-virus closed unexpectedly. I couldn't restart programs files.

    I restarted the laptop.

    After the bios menu will I get a blank screen with a blinking cursor - windows does not start.

    I did the following:
    (1) create a USB bootable with Recovery Console window XP - boot with this i can see three drives C:, D: as SDA? I can see the content of these disks, so it seems that my HD works. I ran a fixmbr and fixboot, but this has not solved the problem.
    (2) create a Kaspersky bootable USB virus scan - ran it without problem - he found a few question (not on the disk boot sector) I've fixed.

    An option was to copy files from the laptop and then start it in recovery mode - so Itried to run the phone into recovery mode hold down the 0 key at startup - the bottom of the screen then displays * HDD Recovery mode * and nothing happens.

    Any help - other options would be greatly appreciated.

    My 1 year of that guarantee has expired a few months back so can't send in for repair.

    Thank you


    I doubt that it is a virus.
    Seems the file system is damaged on the HARD drive and this is the reason why the laptop does not start until it could also be a partition of HARD disk malfunction.

    Try this; Turn on the unit, press F8, and then check if you have the laptop repair.
    If this is not possible, then you will need to reinstall new OS.

    Here you can order a recovery disc:
    Of course you will need an external USB CD/DVD drive

  • Computer does not start after the installation of Win XP SP3

    original title: ServicePack 3 does not work

    After loading service pack 3 my computer does not upwards, unless I use safe mode. It restores not to any restore point. I uninstall and go back to service pack two and get constant reminders to update three when it won't work. After saying it works fine if a little slow in two so is there any point of update.

    Recently, I reset my computer to factory settings to erase the disc from loads of unwanted waste and programs. Reloaded ServicePack two, he wouldn't go back with gel. After reading the old posts, I found a link to Jespers blog. It contained a small tool that intelPPM problems detected and then given the option to turn off the setting.

    This fixes the problem and service pack three charges and now works fine. The tool is loaded in seconds.

  • Vista 64 does not start after the bios screen. Can not boot from the recovery cd or help

    Last night a MS pushed a windows update and my pc restarted automatically.  But it does not actually restart.

    The PC goes through the bios tests, passes and then crashes and does not start in Vista.

    I can't start at all, including safe mode.

    I can't the system recovery option in HP bios to load.  Can I only use my Vista64 system recovery bootable cd or actually start.

    First of all, I thought it was a HARD drive problem, but tests of the bios disk hard that all spend, even the 2 hours 'SMART' test that he was running.



    What happens when you try to boot from the recovery CD? You receive messages or error codes?

    You can check if the boot in the BIOS settings priority is configured to boot to CD\DVD.

    NOTE: Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

  • HP Pavilion dv9260nr does not start after the bios update

    After the HP Health Check, it was recommended that I have updated to the current bios.  After you have downloaded and installed, the computer would not start.  Instead, it emits a long beep and 2 short beeps and the screen is blank.  How can I recover a bios update failed?  Is there a way to return the computer to the bios Setup?

    I thought I would post here to help others as I just spent 5 hours to fix this problem. I have personally experienced this on two different computers, both are model DV9260NR. I woke up in the long and short two beep power. The first time it happened, I tried to fix the BIOS by using the recovery disk, but it didn't work. I tried this using a USB floppy like any other player. The floppy drive should get accessible, then machine would be on a second beep then stop, but it would remain under tension. The first time around I gave up and eventually return it to HP as it was under warranty. This time above the current problem computer is more under warranty so I decided to test out of old college. After trying several discs crisis different Phoenix, I finally found one that worked.

    I downloaded here:

    Followed by the latest bios from HP for the DV9260NR


    I used 7 - zip to extract the files in sp42187.exe and

    go to the folder where you extracted sp42187.exe and rename it to 30BBF2D. WPH into the BIOS. WPH

    Copy BIOS.wph to the folder where your snippet

    I have created my disk in Vista, so don't worry about going "Real DOS".


    Open a command prompt, I used not cmd.exe

    CD to the folder CRISDISK.

    At the prompt enter: "CRISDISK. "BAT HAS:

    Finally, put in a blank disk and follow the instructions.

    Once the disk created, slap this puppy in a floppy USB drive and plug it into the computer.  I didn't need to use as or Windows + B, B FN hotkeys to trigger the BIOS recovery. The system entered in the BIOS for me recovery mode and tried to access the USB floppy.  I noticed that not all USB ports will work.  I plugged my USB stick, floppy to the next to the power supply.  If all goes well just turn on the computer with connected USB floppy drive and the disc in the drive. As before the system beeps once per second during playback of the disc.  The disk activity, arrested again, but this time that the system kept beep immediately after discontinuation of access to the drive.  These beeps point you out that the BIOS is flashed, it's just leave turn. When it was made the machine itself set off.  If yours is not, so I doubt that the BIOS recovery will succeed. I then unplugged the USB floppy drive, turned on again and to my surprise I was greeted by the HP and the BIOS logo!  I hope this helps people difficulty of their DV9260NR.  I met four dv9260nr machines and two of them does not update the BIOS using WinPhlash and the finished machine trashed, not good statistically.  I hope that others with the same model will be able to get their machinery running. I'd be curious to know if it works for others.  Post here if you are or do not succeed using this procedure. Good luck!

  • Tecra 8000 does not start after the BIOS update

    From one day to the other does not start my Tecra 8000 (400 MHz/256 MB BIOS 9.30 for years). After start-up, the disc starts to turn, but the screen including the backlight remains completely black, without red logo TOSHIBA BIOS is not accessible.

    I got a new mainboard on stock, so I replaced it, and it worked. Unfortunately now my WLAN card now did not work properly. I tried several settings of the BIOS with no results, so I decided to do an update of the BIOS from 7.50 to 9: 30. After the upgrade, I get the message "ROM WRITE successful, utility completed. LEADER BIOS: Tecra8000 v 9,30 ". Because what either kept silent, I pressed the power button to restart and heard a long and many short beeps (endless). I could interrupt what pressing the powerbutton for 5s.

    After turning on again I have the same problem as described in the first line :-( I can't get into the BIOS, but I can again update (with pressed F12). Once again these beeps.

    What to do with these beeps after average BIOS update? I replaced the MoBo connector LED with pension. Processor, memory, keyboard and HD has remained the same. So, before I start disassembling the machine, please notify, your help is very appreciated.

    Hello Joachim

    I'm not a technician and don t know what the beeps but I am afraid that the BIOS chip is damaged. Because of this, the unit is completely dead. Sorry, but I really don t believe you can do anything. Maybe the new motherboard again :(
