Hi. I just updraded from Windows XP to Window 7. Everyone thing works good except my sound. The sound icon in the lower right corned is xed out, and says that no audio ouput device is installed. When I click that to detect for problems it says:
I'm using my tv right now with it, it works fine hooked up to a TV. I've tried everything I know of. When the laptop first starts up, It flashes the red compaq screen, then goes black. Flashes the user login screen, then goes black 2 sec later. When I do the fn+f4, the screen flashes back on, everything looks cool, then 5 seconds later it goes black again. It's not just the light, it goes completely off. (Just on the laptop, external monitor works) I've tried restoring back to factory settings, recovery, and I'm not getting anywhere! I've even tried that black screen fix by Prevx. Oh and I also tried turning the laptop off, holding the power button, etc. It has windows 7. CQ61 I think is the model.
i have just bought compaq presario cq56-110sm,but it came along with SUSE Linux Enterprise.However,i am a music producer and because of my neeeds,i want to install windows 7. First,i have disconected the hdd from my laptop and hooked it up to my pc and formated it completely,hooked it back to the lap top,and tried to isntall windows,but then,it asked for hdd drivers and it acts like there is no hdd attached.
I could not get my laptop to start today. I took out the battery to rest it. I can get it to turn on with the battery out when I plug it in but I am stuck on a red screen that has the compaq logo. In the bottom left it says Press the ESC key for Startup Menu. Nothing happens when I press ESC, I am just stuck on this screen.
Do you have driver for HP Compaq Presario F762AU? I'm currently having crashing driver. I don't know which device that crash. After clean installation, my audio not detected. Internet can't be connected.
I just upgraded my Compaq Presario SR1403wm from (Windows Xp Home edition) to (Windows 7 pro 32 bit). Everything went well except im now missing Network adapters/Ethernet and am unable to connect to the internet.
I have a cq56-219wm. The LED code leads me to believe that the cpu has died. However, I have already replaced it with a new one and still am getting the same code with no boot up. I have tried the power reset by holding the power button for one minute and still nothing. The fans are functional as well. My question is, what would the next step be for this laptop repair and will it be worth it on a 2 year old machine?
the graphics card (GeForce Go 6150) won't update drivers. For some reason, nVidia doesn't seem to support it?Second, it can't connect to the internet wirelessly. It detects the wireless router but can't join, despite the fact that the password is correct.
Compaq presario with Vista. Trying to do a clean install of windows 7 on comapq presario f500. Problem is the machine will only boot from hard drive. Cd drive works fine just can't boot from it. Windows 7 install disk won't boot. Windows xp install cd won't boot. In bios setup I've move the dvd/cdrom drive to top of boot list still no luck. So I got tricky booted from vista and starting windows 7 install cd from windows explorer. Install hung part way through and I had to turn off the computer. No I can't boot vista and have an incomplete install of windows 7 which won't boot. Not even safe mode. When you boot hit Esc the boot menus only shows notebook hard drive as an option. I've also tried unpluging the battery to clear out.
I upgraded my Compaq Presario V6000 (V6310US) to a Windows 7 Home Premiun. I would like to know if I should install the drivers that came with the original Wiondows Vista installed on it or, should I install specific drivers for Windows 7 instead?
