compatible memory compaq presario laptop Hi:
Anyone out there know how picky compaq presario laptops are with the memory
put in an expansion slot? I have a
presario 720US (windows xp, 1 GHZ AMD Athlon, 112 MB RAM). I just called
compaq a couple days ago and they said any PC133 MHZ SDRAM simm will work.
I just stuck a kingston in yesterday and now the computer does a hard freeze
every 60 minutes or so. I pulled the kingston out yesterday and tried
centon and am having the same problem.
I am getting a little worried that my expansion slot may be bad. In which
case I'm hosed since the computer is no longer under
Stand Foot for Compaq Presario 1692 laptop I have a old Presario Laptop that is still running/ticking
Anyway the other one of the drop down feet to lift the base
of the unit broke off.
Does Anyone by chance have an old Presario 1600/1200 case that
or even just the foot itself that I could purchase.
Bios discovery for Compaq Presario 700 laptop? I have a Presario 700 that stopped booting yesterday.
When I hit the power button, I get a power light, but no HD activity
or monitor display. I can't hold down F8 (or F5 or whatever) to get
the XP emergency menu, either.
I was thinking maybe it was a BIOS problem? But I don't know the
technique for getting into the BIOS. On some machines, you hold down
escape while booting, or the delete key or something, but I don't know
the sequence for the Presario.
Does this sound like a BIOS problem at all, or more likely a dead
Thanks in advance for any help.

compaq presario 18XL2 laptop screen outage I have a Compaq Presario 18XL2 laptop which seems to work fine for the
first couple of minutes after being turned on, but then the screen
goes blank. Once the screen is blank, vertical white lines will
randomly flash on the screen every couple of seconds. I'm fairly
certain this is a hardware problem, because the laptop boots and runs
normally under both Windows ME and Knoppix 3.4 (Linux) operating
systems until the screen goes blank. It seems to be an over heating
issue of some sort, as the screen blanks sooner if the laptop is
already warm. I connected the VGA output to a monitor onl...

Solaris Express nvb38 on Compaq presario nx6120 (laptop) Hi,
Has anyone successfully installed Sol Exp nv b38 on this laptop?
I have tried but cannot get it to load.
1. the laptop keyboard is not recognised (Can use external usb
2. Get the error: cannot find windowing software, exiting to shell
3. Run /sbin/install-begin but after all initial install questions get
the error: No disks found check cabling.
I've had a look on the HCL and can't find this laptop model there, does
this mean that Sol Exp will not run on this model?
Any help would be much appreciated.

it from sleep mode, the screen would be usable again. now when i turn the

Buy an external of either cd or floppy drive. OR, if you have a usb
port buy a data pen.

Compaq Presario SR1020NX I have a Compaq Presario SR1020NX on which I am attempting to load Debian
Sarge 3.1. It has an Award BIOS ver 6.00 and an Intel Celeron 2.8GHz
processor. The motherboard is labeled MS-6577 ver 4.1. Browsing the web,
this seems to be made by MSI, but although there are lots of queries on the
web for information or manuals, I couldn't find any replies with links that
worked. I have tried several permutations of boot parameters like noapic,
nolapic, linux26, etc, but nothing so far has worked. The DVD uncompresses
the kernel and begins to load it, but immediately the system just r...

Compaq Presario partitions Hi!I have a Compaq Presario 730US (that came preinstalled with XP
Home). I decided to change the way Compaq had partitoned the laptop so
that I could add Linux. After deleting the existing partition and
creating new ones using Linux fdisk(I also tried Windows fdisk later),
trying to install XP using the restore disks (by changing the deafult
script which uses the entire disk, the instructions for which I found
on a web site)) doesn't work.
A prompt saying "This partition is password protected" appears. I
tried using the restore disks without changing anything,,,the setup

Compaq Presario 6000 with no video Hello
I've had a heck of a time with this one....here's what's happened....
The machine's video is out. You boot it up, and no video, yes, green
power light is on, and you can see some attempt at HD activity. I tried
a AGP video card, still no video. Tried a different known working
monitor, nothing worked. So, I attempted to reset the BIOS, and
unplugged all devices - still nothing for video. Yes, I unplugged
everything, including memory, cards, and IDE devices.
So, I started to think, it's one of two things, motherboard or CPU. I
ordered a motherboard last week, and I h...

High Line Compaq Laptop Hello,
Does anyone know whether Compaq still makes any laptops with the nice
keyboard feel that the old Armada 7700 and 7800 laptops had. All the low-
line Compaqs that I see in the stores have putrid keyboards.
