Problem starting Compaq 6720 s

I recently went into my bios Setup and click Load set default values and now my laptop does not charge upward, I get the blue screen of death flash and disappear.

I tried to reinstall my operating system, but it did not work as it says that my hard drive is not present and that I should check the set up.

The hard drive still works as I tested it outside and all work from the hard drive came.

Can anyone help?


Run the Bios.


Configuration menu of the native system-> device-> enable/disable SATA Mode configurations.

Changing the setting here on what you have now.

If you Select select disable and press F10 to save the Bios. Then go to file-> save changes and exit and press F10 for the economy again.

If you disable select Activate and press F10 to save the Bios. Then go to file-> save changes and exit and press F10 for the economy again.

  • Compaq mini c110: problem starting Compaq mini c110


    I have compaq mini c110 and when I start it up it gets to the windows loading screen and then it restarts every time. So I decided to reinstall windows. I tried with windows 7, I get the first screen where I choose language after that when I press on install it just "freezes". I waited 2 hours to get to the partitions so I can format them and install windows but nothing happened. Then I tried to install windows XP, I got to the part where he asks me what partition I want to install windows and when I select it it starts formatting and after 20 or 40% in fact, it gave me error that my hard drive is damaged and could not be partitioned.

    I want to know if I should buy a new hard drive in this case, I would like to buy ssd or is something wrong with my mbr, I would get another message if it's defective mbr and how could I solve this problem? Or maybe it's completely another thing?

    Thank you

  • Compaq 6720 s won't start not


    I have laptop Compaq 6720 s Intel 1.7 Ghz, 1 GB of ram, running Windows XP Professional.

    When I went on the laptopm the wifi led is on, power led is not lit and the led above the charge point lights with a light blue color and blinks. The screen is dark (see no activity here). I can hear the fans running and nothing else. It stays that way. When I unplug the power cord, the fans will continue to run and I had to cut the fans to perform on the power button of the laptop at all times.

    Even the laptop is turned off, the indicator light above the power cord blinks without interruption. I removed the battery and plugged the power cord. Always the same condition. Now, the laptop power cord is not connected. I have strength under tension of the laptop (which disappears in turn fans). But the led above the power cord keeps burning anything.

    I think I have a 1 year warranty left. I can communicate with HP service staff only on Monday. But I would like to know if I can do anything to throw upwards before that. More important, I want to know if my data is recoverable.

    Thank you


    Try a hard reset.

    Remove the battery and disconnect the electric plug adapter.

    Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then put the battery back and try a boot to the top in windows.

    If it does not try reinstalling your modules of memory and try a boot up into windows.

    Then see if external connection to the video out gives you monitor a way in windows.

    If it does not try to remove your hard drive and see if your laptop shows the BIOS screen.

    If still no go, pass any of this than troubleshooting insulation information about the HP Service Center.

    Kind regards


  • Network drivers for Compaq 6720 s

    Hi all.

    I tried similar topics before posting, finding nothing; so I apologize if I was wrong and a similar thread already exists.

    I formatted my Compaq 6720 s, re-installation of Windows Vista (the same system before formatting). After that, I noticed that miss me the network drivers (the computer is not able to identify wi - fi networks) and I couldn't find them on the net. I installed HP wireless assistant but it does not help.

    Also, I noticed that the system does not work in a full screen, but more about a square screen based on the height (so there is a black band on both sides), then, probably, I also have some problems within the video drivers.

    Thanks to those who will help me by telling me where to find the drivers.

    I run startup verification before this problem occure.

    I have laptop HP COMPAQ 6720 s. A few days ago, I run startup check using the bios. at the end of this review, I restarted my laptop. He sought power on password prior to loading the bios. I did not put any power on password until now. so please help me with this problem and suggest me a solution so that I can access my laptop.

    This means that someone who has used the laptop put a power on password in the BIOS. He did not by himself.

    Some computers laptops, generally older, may have removed BIOS passwords by removing the battery from the RTC for a few minutes. Yours is the older type and the manual, see page 36, shows how it is possible

  • Printing in 2 programs problem started 2 days ago, only firefox works fine with Internet Explorer?

    Services Bank web site has a "Print - Friendly View" text, on the top right of the page that displays the account information in a different format if you click on the text. Printing all other functions work ok. The problem isn't when you use them Internet Explorer. The other program is on the Aflacs website, and the problem is very similar. When I click on the text stating "Print copy of invoice", nothing happens, as the text of the Bank. Both work perfectly with Internet Explorer. The problem started about 2 days ago. When it works well, a window will open and show you what it will print and you click on the text "print", and it prints. Any help on this problem will be greatly appreciated.

  • My iPad has been slow and unstable. What can I do if this is caused by a virus from the Internet because that is what I suspect. The problem started after a message like "scripts to run.

    My iPad has been slow and unstable - it actually seems to be hung when I use it. Once I put it, a blue line with four faces (which forms a rectangle or square) appears on the display and moves as he tries to anticipate my next actions or touch on the scree. All started about four days ago while I was downloading of articles in google scholar. A message that reflects something as "run scripts" or "scripts to run" appeared just before the problem started. Please advise on what I can do.

    Try resetting your device. This will not erase your data stored on that device.

    • Press and hold the sleep/wake button
    • Press and hold the Home button
    • Press and hold both buttons until the display turns off and on again with the Apple logo on the subject.

    Alternatively, you can go to settings - general - reset - Reset all settings

    If that doesn't work, restore your device to factory settings. Please note that this will delete the data on your device.

    Hi kkle4,

    You use the preinstalled version of Windows 7 in Toshiba? I can t find any information in your posting on OS :(

    Otherwise I agree with Akuma and you should check the BIOS version and probably an update would be useful. Before you begin to update of the BIOS here are some useful tips:
    -Close all running programs (also, antivirus, firewall, etc.)
    -Make sure that you are logged on as an administrator
    -Unzip all files from zip archive
    -Connect the AC adapter before you can update the BIOS and make sure the battery is fully charged

  • Problem starting Equium L40


    I use F1 to start my Equium L40 every time I tun turn it on. It will then start ok but he forgot the time and date, as soon as I update time / date, the computer works perfectly I can access all my email etc accounts without having to put anything.

    The problem started after the replacement of the battery because of that being almost completely dead. I noticed that the computer will not work on AC only without mounted battey but is still charging the battery ok. (if the adapter is ok)

    I love the computer and do not really want to buy a new, but it is very frustrating and tedious when I turn it on.

    Maybe there is a battery backup I can change to fix the problem?

    Any help would be appreciated?


    Laptop should also work without battery but connected to the power adapter
    So I guess that your motherboard is affected in some way.

    If the RTC battery (bios) is empty, the time and date in the BIOS menu would be reset to the default value. But in my opinion, this shouldn't be a problem to use the laptop with AC adapter.

    However, the RTC battery can be charged to do that you need to connect the main battery and power adapter and the laptop must be turned on for a longer period of time (18-20 hours).

    You don't want in this file.  Ads by Call Builder is malware that opens the ads on your computer.  If you encounter this error, then it is likely that you have an antivirus/antimalware program which was removed from your computer, but left the startup item.  More information on Call Builder, and how to remove can be found here.

    To remove this item from your startup list, follow these steps:

    System (Windows 7) Configuration utility

    1. In the start search box, type MSCONFIG and press ENTER.
    2. Click the Startup tab.
    3. Uncheck the items you want to run at startup.
    4. When you have finished your selections, click OK.
    5. In the box that appears, click on restart to restart your computer.
