Won't Load After Using Compaq System Recovery

Recently, my computer had been running rather different than normal, and I felt that something disastrous was going to happen soon, but I took the stupid route of simply doing nothing and excusing my hunch as nothing more than the computer being old. Pompeii 2 decided to take place on my computer. My "hunch" was very correct, as yesterday, multiple trojan downloaders showed their ugly faces, and placed nearly every virus known to man on my desktop. I then proceeded to but windows in safe mode, unplug the ethernet cable, and run Trojan Remover with the latest updates. Well Trojan Remover did quite a little number on my comp, disabled svchost's from running, and made it impossible for me to connect to the internet. After rebooting again, Windows was unable to boot and a box popped up stating that lsass.exe could not be found. I then booted into Compaq System Recovery and performed a "Safe" recovery that doesn't delete data but restores everything else.

Compaq Presario V3000 Won't Load
My laptop, (compaq presario v3000), won't load xp, if i tap f8, sometimes it will go to the screen where you can pick safe mode but it won't let me go to safe mode. sometimes it will go to desktop but when i try to play a game it restarts & frezes up again. I also have tried system restore, it takes me as far as choose your restore point & then it does nothing, just frezes there. I also have a d drive so i can restore it to manufactuary, when I first purchased my laptop. i don't know how to do this either. I'd rather not loose everything if possible.

Compaq Recovery Tools CD /Compaq System Recovery
I'm running Windows XP SP3 with everything up to date as far as I know. I have the complete set of my PC's OEM Disks that I've used once when my OS was completely messed up, had Geeks Rescue out and they couldn't figure out what was wrong, so I know what they are for.What I'm not understanding are the several tools I'm afraid to open listed in my "Start"/"All Programs" I have both "Compaq"/"Compaq Presario PC Tools" with "Compaq Application Recovery"/"Compaq Recovery CD-DVD Creator"/"Compaq Recovery Tools CD"/"Compaq Support Information"/"Compaq System Recovery"/"Remote Assistance"/"Safety and Comfort Guide"

Compaq Server Won't Install - System Formatted At Every Start Up
I have a Compaq Proliant 8000 here that had Red Hat Linux pre-installed and in working order. My company then decided that it wanted Small Business Server 2003 installing, so after using Compaq Smartstart to format and re arrange the disk arrays, which is no problem at all system formatted then a raid 5 disk array set-up which smart start detects and reads correctly However, now that is done the system will NOT install SBS 2003 or any other operating system at all, at the point of the install where the disk reads "Windows Set-up" the system just stops and freezes, this happens with other disks and different O/S discs.

Compaq System Recovery
Compaq will not start. It gets to the welcome screen, where you press F1 for Setup F10 for System recovery, but nothing else is happening. I have tried to get into both Set up and recovery with no results. I have also tried safe mode, but nothing happens.

Umm yea I am normally decent with pcs but recently after I let my friend use it for the weekend there are things wrong such as. Speed Slowed, Some AV software saying 146 infections. I dont know how to explain the problem.
But When I go to use it now it just ignores my pressing. Im kinda getting pissed since no recovery CDs. It is Windows XP Home Edition says on sticker. Is it possible to boot the D: drive (The recovery partition) with command prompt. Or am I screwed since it just ignores me pressing f10.

PDF Won't Load - Flash Player 9 Won't Downoad
I have the security setting set to ''prompt'' for active x control. When I attempt to download the player, I get the warning pop-up, see the gold bar, say ''yes'' to downloading active x control.The pop-up window comes up asking me if I want to download Flash Player 9 and I click on "install". The window disappears, nothing downloads, no error message. Also, what is strange is that now I can't view any PDF files on the internet. I can open the program (Adobe Reader 7.08) itself, but whenever I try to access a file on the web, the browser window disappears, again without an error message. I used to be able to view PDF's fine before I tried to install Flash Player 9.

HP Compaq Won't Install - Can't Find A Hard Drive
I've been trying to install Windows XP on a HP Compaq 6710b. It's my friends laptop, it shipped with Vista and she hates it so I'm giving her one of my copies of XP to use, because I'm so nice and whatnot. It boots into Windows Setup, checks everything, and then tells me that it can't find a hard drive for it to install Windows on, and the only option is to press F3 to restart. Is there some step I'm missing to turn on the hard drive before I install? Is this a problem with HP products, or have I just forgot to press some button?

Won't Install On Compaq Desktop
I have a Compaq Presario s5200nx, with 512kb ram, 2.7 ghz Celeron processor, and now a 120 gb Western Digital hard drive. I took the original hard drive (120gb Samsung), which had windows xp installed and running fine, out and put it into a newer computer I built. I installed the 120 gb WD drive in (which also had a running version of XP installed on it) and it wouldn't boot. I then tried putting my windows xp cd in to reformat and reinstall, but everytime, it loads up, and then just says at the bottom "Starting Windows" and freezes at this. I then tried using the recovery cds that were made from this computer and put the first one it, It just gets to a screen that says "Compaq Recovery" and freezes at this. Next I took some "Quick Restore" cds I had from an older laptop and put those in. Everything seemed to be working fine until I got to the end where an error saying "Memory Error" came up, and the PC still wouldnt boot. I have tested the hard drive on other computers, works fine, as well as ran Western Digital's Diagnostics on it, which showed no errors.

Compaq Presario SR1053WM Won't Start
I am only moderately technically savvy. I'm not afraid of technology, but my only experience is tinkering around with my own PC's over the years when issues have come up. I'm a big fan of trying to do things yourself before calling in the professionals. However because of this, I have been delegated to complete the task at hand. This is my nephew's computer that has been dropped off at my house to somehow get running again.

Compaq Presario M2000 Won't Power Up
I have each a Compaq Presario M2000 laptop computer, running Windows XP, 40 GB hard drive, 256 Mg memory, DVD CDRW, they're very nice and for whatever reason his quit working. He said that one day he went to turn on the computer and it wouldn't fire up. I told him to come over to my house and I swapted my battery and still nothing. I then swapped power packs with no fix. I thought it might be a power supply problem or something like that but have not figured out how to open it up without breaking something.

Compaq Laptop Won't Start - Missing Files
I have a Compaq laptop that I bought about a year ago. Of course, I did not get a Windows disk with it and I cannot find the software that I did get. When I try to start it, it says that Windows cannot start because a file is missing or corrupt. The file is "windowssytem32configsystem". It suggests that I attempt to repair it using the original Setup CD-ROM, which, of course, I don't have.

Compaq Win ME Old Virus? Won't Boot Up, With Floppy
I have an older Compaq I have ignored for over a year. When I turn it on it acts like it is always in run mode, no disc in it. I used an old floppy to re-boot to no success, I downloaded an ME Boot file of net and loaded it onto my 512mb stick and slid into the usb port also with no success. My intention is to boot the PC up enough to retrieve some data and then do an FBI wipe on the hard drive and start it like new. can i get this up and running without wiping everything first?

Compaq Presario Won't Boot Up - Power Came On And Allowed Me To Eject
I have a problem with a Compaq Presario running XP Home. I took the CD player out and cleaned out broken pieces of a CD that was destroyed in it. I got it cleaned out, put back together and now the pc won't boot up. I don't know what went wrong. Cleaning the CD player was quite easy and went back together okay. I hooked all of the wires up the way they were. On the front of this computer, there are two lights. One on the left which is green, and one on the right which is orange. Normally, when the power button is pushed, the green light comes on first, then the orange light comes on during the loading process. You can see the boot process on the monitor.

Now, after hooking it back up today, when the power button is pushed, the green light comes on, then the orange one comes on and goes back off after a moment. The green light stays on. Nothing at all shows up on the monitor, not even a blinking cursor -- it just stays blank. It stays that way indefinitely nothing. The monitor light is on so it is apparently getting power, but shows nothing. I'm sure the monitor is hooked up correctly; it can only be plugged in one way. While I had everything unhooked and was cleaning the CD player, I plugged the CD player back in for a moment and plugged in the power cord to the pc and pushed the power button. The power came on and allowed me to eject the empty tray. I did this to get the tray out of the way so I could clean beneath it. I tried to turn the power back off with the pc power button after ejecting the tray and it wouldn't seem to shut down.

2000 Won't Load
I have a problem with Windows 2000. For some reason it won't load up. It gets to the login and loading prefrerences boxes, but after that there's just a blue screen. I've tried booting in safe mode. That just leads me to a black screen with "safe mode" in the four corners. I tried booting in the last known good configuration and it goes through the same process only now a message pops up in symbols. Also, when I hit [ctrl][alt][delete] everything is clickable except for task manager. That was also the case the last time I was in windows. I have absolutely no Idea what to do.

Programs Won't Load
I have tried to load several programs lately such as Label Factory, Front Page Disk 2 etc and every time the disk starts to spin it gives me this error message.C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application. Then I have to click close and that's it the programs will not load.I ran a virus scan and uncovered a Troj "Exploit Verify".I have taken care of that but still won't work at all.

Computer Won't Load Anything After Reinstallation
My wife is trying to use my son's laptop which we have just had fixed due to having loads of viruses.The laptop would then not even start up, so I re-installed Windows (XP Home) and everything seemed fine, as it would boot up onto the desktop and have all the icons.No matter how long I leave it (even left for 4hours one day) I cannot load ANYTHING. When I click an icon the hour glass will appear and then thats it. It won't even let me switch it off via Start.She really needs to get on to it for work. But if a re-install won't work. Is there anything that will?

Machine Won't Load Any Applications
This is quite the weird problem. Basically I have this windows xp machine that, when you click on an application, just "hangs" and then never loads the app. The hour glass will appear, and then go away.I believe it's being caused by SVCHOST which is at 99% cpu.I checked for viruses, spyware, the like (sometimes it loads apps) and there was nothing, so I wiped the machine.It does the same thing on a brand new install. I've considered a network virus, but I put SP2 on it before making it network aware, AND I'm behind 2 firewalls, so that's pretty much impossible. There's only 2 other machines on the network (the one I'm on now, which is clean, and a mac).It doesn't appear to happen in safe mode, so I think it might be a driver issue.

Won't Load User Account
I have a HP laptop and W2K pro is installed. When I try to log on to either the admin account or my account, It will freeze right after it starts to load the account. Now for the tricky part If I press ctrl a few times right after I hit enter to accept the password, the account will load. I was wondering if there might be a problem with the MBR, I have tried to fdisk /MBR but fdisk is not a valid cmd.

Compaq Won''t Start - Trying To Start But Can't And Will Continue
My compaq is having problems starting up. It makes a repetitious sound like the hard drive is trying to start but can't and will continue to do so indefinately or until it boots. So I assumed it was a hdd issue, however trying the hd in another laptop worked fine and an alternate hd in my Compaq has the same problem. It does start up occasionally, although it usually freezes half way through booting up, but can occasionally work upto half an hour.
