  • Webcam "IT is not" for Compaq Presario CQ62 215DX.

    I have YouCam 4 upgrade, and he says:

    No Webcam detected. Try connecting a webcam on your computer now. If you use a built-in camera, make sure it is turned on.

    My thing is that I don't know how to turn it on. Also, in the Device Manager, there is no imaging devices if that helps. I've had this computer for almost a month and has had this problem since day one. I called Technical Support and it me did not help at all to solve my problem. He said it's a "manufatcuring issue that cannot be resolved." I'm ready to fix it can so someone help me?

    * Yes this product has a microphone & and webcam too.

    Just like the HP technology, it's a 'manufacturing defect that cannot be resolved. I gues meaning is its built in this way. They cannot send you a webcam material because it came not with the computer in the first place. The glass like thing that you see on top is really a hole for the webcam. But you don't have the equipment for this. You must buy the built in webcam to adapt it.

    If you want to ensure that this is not not a hardware issue, consider reformatting windows. It is not an imaging device after reformatting, theres really no webcam is built in.

  • 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

  • Improving RAM for Compaq Presario CQ40 - 144TU

    Hi team,

    I use a laptop Compaq Presario CQ40 - 144TU, Windows 7 32 bit. I want to upgrade RAM. But I don't know exactly what kind of RAM is suitable and the range of the RAM expansion (with the specification if possible). Please help me.

    I have attached the image of my report of PC "crucial.com.

    Is it possible for me to upgrade to 8 GB.

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards



    From the Crucial scan your machine accepts 8 GB of RAM and currently there only 2 GB in a slot, another beach is empty. Now, if you want to:

    (a) be upgraded to 4 GB if you want to keep the OS, you have to buy the 2 GB of Crucial, 32-bit

    (b) if you want to switch to 8 GB, no point (sorry my typos on my previous answer) to maintain 32-bit Windows. You can buy 2 x 4 GB, you also need 64-bit operating system and 32-bit to 64-bit are a clean install, not upgrade.

    Kind regards.

  • RAM for Compaq Presario

    I have a compaq presario SR 1215 CL PJ506AA using Windows XP.  How much more RAM I could add to my office?  Might buy it locally?  (i.e.Best Buy or London Drugs) in British Colombia?


    If you go to Best Buy, so be sure to write down your PC product number and model number.  Also take with you the information above and ask a pair of matched 1 GB DIMMs.  Call for a quote for installation and the DIMM and then decide what to do.  I say we leave the BB to install memory DIMM modules. This way if there is a problem then they solve.

  • Compaq Presario CQ62-214NR: modules SODIMM more faster/more-great for Compaq Presario CQ62-214NR?

    I have 1x2BG of DDR2 in this machine right now.  I need to pass in 2x2gb and looked at PC2-6400 sets.  But the .pdf manual says can take DDR3 1333 MHz PC3-1066.  Is this really true?  When I go to the essentials and other sites of the manufacturers, they always use DDR2.

    A few eBay sellers say the works of DDR3, but I do not trust their word, because the photos show the notch located in a different place for DDR3.

    In addition, what densities?

    Thank you!


    Firstly, PC2 and PC3 doesn't switchable because physically RAM PC3 will not fit in the slot PC2. I can't find the fi\ull of your computer specifications.  Please use the following site to scan your machine. It will tell you exactly what you need and where to buy, or you can also use the information to buy elsewhere:

    I found this cool new Linux Destro which is really useful only as a live usb. I did the live usb and went into the bios. I priority all USB devices in the name above the HD and I tried the USB in all slots, but nothing helped. Anyone know if it is possible to start this high laboratory from a usb key. Thank you for your help and your time.

    Unetbootin can be tricky. The first BackTrack USB thumbdrive, I've done has not worked. I tried a different version of Unetbootin and it worked.
    What version did you use?

    Unetbootin-Windows-563 worked for me with a Windows 7 64-bit OS.

  • HP compaq presario cq60-215dx restore factory settings

    I am selling my computer compaq presario cq60-215dx laptop model and cannot figure out how to restore the factory settings. I tried a number of things... I pressed f9 to turn on the computer that has windows vista. Then I pressed ESC which lead me to the windows Boot Manager. It is said "to specify an advanced for this choice option, press f8." So I did and went up a list of the advanced startup options and 'repair your computer' is the one I clicked on because they say this option restores the system. Another menu came with the system recovery options, then I clicked on the full restoration of a windows PC with a description explaining that this will restore your entire server or personal computer from a backup image. I clicked on that and an error message came say that validates a backup location could not be found. Windows cannot find a backup on this computer. Set the backup hard drive or insert the final DVD of a backup set, then click Retry. What does that mean?

    Please, see performing a recovery of the system (Windows Vista) HP for instructions on performing a HP system on yyour computer recovery. If you have not created your HP recovery disks, you can do prior to the recovery. HP recovery disks are a Fail Safe incase something goes wrong.
