  • I have a laptop Compaq CQ62 visitors who present a problem of power...

    I bought two taken DC-in harness and tried both. No of them light up (the plug with the led on this issue), or make one of them turn on the laptop the battery. I also tried another adapter HP power as a generic, nor of what works with any of the 3 DC-in Sockets I have identical.

    Is the light on the Jack supposed to light up under same voltage if not dragged into the motherboard? (still, I looked for when both connected and disconnected). Is there another type of problem that caused the same issue?

    My client is the chomping little to have his machine backwards. Unfortunately, he discovered this problem just three days after the expiration of the warranty.

    Well, no one ever gives the congratulations for the bad news, but obviously you have a very bad motherboard here. You've done everything you can with replacement power. Yes, if the motherboard is good, you should get the blue light when you plug the adapter into an outlet that is correctly connected to the card. If you do not, there is a power outage on the set.  I'm sorry.

  • I have a laptop compaq presario C762NR which keeps freezing upwards. Help

    My computer laptop presario freezes when I try to connect to the internet or to run a full scan of norton. I turn the power off using the power button. Tried system restore and it didn't seem to help. Delete all cookies and history and so on. No help. Don't know what to try next. Thanks-Andy

    Hi Andy,.

    You will need to replace the drive hard as the bios test indicates he does not physically, so wiping will not solve the problem.  It's a quick procedure to replace the HARD drive and a new will cost you about $40.  As I said, let me know if you need a quick guide on how to do this.

    Kind regards

I even disabled the pilots I thought that maybe something to do with it and still the same events occur. I disabled autuning, ran several diagnostics - one who says something about TC or something of this nature should be activated so I clicked on that and he says that the problem had been resolved. After I pedaled again power the machine, the same thing. Can someone please? I am running windows vista home basic 32-bit

  • Compaq presario notebook CQ71: mother of computer laptop compaq presario CQ71

    mother of laptop Compaq presario CQ71

    I have a question an abot in Selangor, this motherboard.

    the graphics chip is separate or integrated.

    My cq71 crashed and stopped working continuous overheating by weak graphics.

    so ive decided to spend the whole motherboard.

    but I need to know to or if I could spend graphics.

    I have already upgraded to the ram for the future graphics card integrated.

    also additional guides on how to pass map main would be apprteciated.

    No RAM, but you would like to install a better processor, too. Look at the manual for CPU options. They will be pretty inexpensive at this stage. You should also another radiator/heater unit to work with the different video chip. But it adapts to your chassis. The only way to look at this case if you do your own work. Otherwise, the cost will approach the price of a new laptop computer. Even do your own work that you will probably have to spend more than $150.

  • How can I install Windows XP on windows 7 laptop Compaq Presario CQ62-215DX?

    I want to install XP on my laptop (laptop Compaq Presario CQ62-215DX) which has Windows 7... give me some advice please

    You replace the startup disk in the BIOS cd. Then boot from the XP CD. And press a button when it tells you. However, he will wipe away Windows 7. So, if you want anything copy everything you want (with the exception of programs), before formatting the hard disk.

    NOTE: XP has no drivers for most of whats on the system (LAN/Sound/player card etc.). So if that is the only computer you have, go to HP site for this laptop search, download drivers and copy them into something. Before you begin. Or you won't get back on the internet...

    Also NOTE: If the disk hard in it is SATA, you will need to disable the AHCI in the BIOS (change it to IDE mode). Or XP will crash before you get to the configuration screen. Unless you download the SATA drivers, unzip / extract and add them when it says press F6 (on a floppy disk).

    The XP CD does not have SATA drivers on it either. If you do not add the SATA drivers during installation, do not change this back to AHCI after installing XP. Or it will crash

    In addition, make sure that you have a XP key. A key to windows 7 will not work

  • laptop Compaq presario 2701T: battery cmos

    I need to replace the CMOS battery on my laptop Compaq Presario 2701 T and would like to know if the battery is located on the laptop and how to get it out.  In addition, if you may know where I can buy this point.

    Thank you.

    I finally found where the CMOS battery on my laptop Presario 2701.  I tired going road to tech support but I was told that my laptop was out of warranty so that they could not help.  Then I noticed that you can send the President of HP if you have a problem, so I did it, said my question and the next day I received a call for technical support and I was told the battery was under the rear cover of the laptop.  So after unscrewing which seemed to be a dozen screws on the bottom of the laptop I tried to remove the cover, but there do not seem to come off.  I then handed the laptop and pried off the keyboard, carefully removed the keyboard Ribbon that has two small tabs on each side that you just have to push back on.  Then you will see a square on the left side cover, remove the four screws, remove the cover and there is your CMOS battery in the upper right corner.  It is a flat regular silver oxide, number 2032 battery.  Replace the battery and put that together and it started right.  Changed the date and time and the computer is running back to normal.

  • Printer Dell AIO 944 installed with my laptop Compaq (Windows Vista) will not be printed.

    I had an old Compaq Office of four years who developed problems that would cost me more trouble that it's worth.  I had been printing it to a Dell 944, which I then installed in a new laptop Compaq with Windows Vista.  The installation seems to have been systematic and successful, but I can't get the Dell print.  The message I get is "Incorrect Port detected.  The current print job has been cancelled.  This printer is designed to work with USB cables only.  The current software setting is not set to USB port.  Make sure you use a USB cable (and) the printer are set to a USB port. "I followed the instructions to set the USB port, and it seems that the port is, in fact, enabled.  I know that USB cable works, because he worked with the old desktop computer.

    Hi jwfinnashville,

    According to the Dell website, this can happen if the printer drivers are not installed properly.

    On the Dell site, they suggest to install a fix to uninstall all the drivers printer completely from the computer, then restart the computer and then reinstall drivers from the Dell website and check out them.

    Download the patch here to remove all printer drivers

    See also: http://en.community.dell.com/forums/p/19251369/19406642.aspx#19406642

    Then download the printer drivers for Windows vista 32 bit from link here and check

    For additional support, post your request in the Dell forums.

    I hope this helps!

  • Upgrade CPU laptop Compaq CQ50-110US

    I did the possible research upgraded the CPU in my laptop Compaq CQ50-110US, which currently has an AMD Turion X 2 RM - 70, 2.0 GHz.  I was informed that the Turion X 2 Ultra ZM - 86, 2.4 GHz, is the best upgrade that is possible. But after reviewing the laptop (http://products.amd.com/en-us/) AMD processors and make a comparison, I wonder if a Turion II Ultra M660, 2.7 GHz (which seems to be the fastest computer laptop AMD processor at present) could also work? Wattage is the same X 2 heat and Ultra generation difference seems negligible.  The RM-70 has Nvidia GeForce 8200 M graphics card. I don't know what is available on the M660.

    If anyone has any advice, it would be much appreciated.  Thank you!

    The new BIOS to do any good, should have included the Code that expanded compatible processors. HP has no reason to write such a code. If they are updating the BIOS, this is something that they care, like compatibility with a new operating system or solve the problems they would have to be financed under the guarantee. HP is the only entity that can write a BIOS for the system because it is closed and owner. They assume the processor you have is that you always have and they write only BIOS which cover the processors they choose to offer with systems. Occasionally, a non - OEM processor will work, but not very often. Look at the thread sticky erico at the top of this map:

    Computer laptop Update FAQ

    The best advice is that you can probably use an HP processor offered with your model of series, but try installing anything else is a gamble at best.
