Preferred Solution: how to unlock touch pad on compaq laptop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an old Compaq Armada 3500 laptop that I bought years ago to help me through college. After that it kinda gathered dust a little until recently when I wanted to dig it back out and just use it to play a few games on and whathaveyou. It booted up fine when I first did it but it soon transpired that it was absolutely chocablock with viruses and spyware and it was running terribly.

So, on what now looks to have been a foolish move, I did a C: drive format in the hope of popping in a Win98SE installation disc and have it boot from that to re-install Windows.

However, now it won't boot up past the COMPAQ initial screen and a "602: Diskette Read Driver Error" or something keeps flashing up.

Is there any way to get into the BIOS settings to set the CD Drive as the first in the boot-up line-up, or are there recovery discs I can download that'll at least get me into DOS?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Compaq Armada 3500 Laptop Won't Boot Up Past Compaq Screen...

Well you should be able to access the CMOS Bios by using either the delete, F1 or F2 keys (sometimes f10). Then under the Bios you should see the Boot Sequence and be able to change it from there. But either way, you should be able to get past the Compaq splash screen. Try setting your boot sequence and see if that helps.

My laptop worked fine one day then the next it got stuck at the compaq screen. F10 key nor any other key will work. I have unplugged, taken out the battery and held down the power key to no avail. I do not even have the option to go to safe mode or any other screen. It does not sound like it is trying to boot and when I insert a disk it tries to run then it just stops. I have tried taken out the battery and just using the ac adapter and I have tried unplugging it and using just the battery; nothing. Any thoughts?? My knowledge of computers is very very limited so please respond in layman terms. thanks....

Does anyone use the Compaq Pocket PCs? If so are you having problems with sceen alignment? I just bought mine (5400 series, I think) about 3 months ago. Worked fine up until a few weeks ago. Now what you touch on the sceen is not accessed. The techs at the Compaq helpless desk told me that the problem is 'dust' getting between the screen and the case/housing. To simply use some compressed air and blow it around the housing. That doesn't sound like a good idea to me. It works great after I use the restore option for about a day. Then it starts acting up again.

Anyone else have this problem?
 

Answer:Compaq Pocket PC-touch screen problem

Not knowing much about PDA's or touch screens, I would do what the Compaq Help Desk told you to do.

I don't see any harm coming to your PDA if you were to do such a thing, compressed air is a very efficient way to clear dust away from sensitive surfaces and components; I use it all the time inside my machine.

I would get a second opinion before you do anything I just mentioned, as I said, I have no experience nor knowledge about touch screen displays or PDA's. I hope that you find the solution to this problem quickly, Good Luck :grinthumb !

Hi, My G400s series touch screen laptop touch not working. It stops working just one month back. It was purchased around 16 months back. I have done all the trick which suggested on the forum by many users but all in vain. I have always updated with latest updates by Microsoft including Window 8.1/latest driver by Lenovo but I think this is not the issue with Windows upgrade because this was done months back and touch was working perfectly. If this is hardware problem the Lenovo should accept the fault and change the failure part free of cost or come up with some solution because many Lenovo users suffering with this problem. Kindly some one can suggest me where I should approach to get this rectify?

Hi everyone,
I have a 1.5 year old Dell Latitude 3540 laptop, which I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 Pro (from 8.1 Pro). It has a non-touch screen.
For some reason, Windows 10 sometimes thinks it has a touch screen. It then shows the icon for the touch keyboard at the bottom right corner, and when going to Settings->System->About, under "Pen and Touch" it says "Touch support with 2 touch points".
This doesn't really bother me, as it doesn't seem to actually influence anything important. But still, seems pretty strange.
Did anyone else here experience something similar?
Thanks!

Hi,

I turned on my laptop this morning to find that the touch pad doesn't work. This wasn't really a problem as I generally use a plug-in mouse, however, upon restarting my computer again, my keyboard also doesn't work.

I'm running Vista 32 bit and I have no idea what to do.

Does this sound like a software problem or a hardware problem? Is it possible that I have a virus that is causing this?

Would my best solution be to re-install Vista?

I have everything backed up so I don't mind doing that, however, I don't know how. When I bought my laptop Vista was pre-installed so I don't have the CD.

I'd be very appreciative to any help you guys could offer!

I have a valid AT&T unlock code for my device. I have entered the code via using another SIM card and the ##7820#.When the SIM card is inserted (Walmart Family Mobile T-Mobile towers) the message "SIM ERROR" is displayed. I tried a 2nd WFM SIM card, same issue. I discovered the ##7820# with no SIM card inserted and when I enter my 20-digit code, the locked symbol shakes back and forth. I cannot get the code to work. AT&T customer service guarantees the code with my IMEI number and won't issue another code as the code provided is unique to my IMEI number.

Answer:Why won't my Nokia Lumia 920 unlock with proper AT&T provided unlock code?

From my experience, I've unlocked four Lumia phones with AT&T. Each time I've just done it without a foreign sim card inserted and via the ##7820# without any issues whatsoever. I hope you are able to get this resolved somehow. Have they verified with you that they have the correct IMEI number on their end?

If it's paid off and has a clean IMEI number, they should unlock it no problem. I'd take it into an AT&T store and have them do it there.

Have you tried a hard reset? Hold the power and volume down until it restarts. If it doesn't help, use the recovery tool on the pc to go back to 8.1. The phone version is still buggy so stuff like this happens. It is a risk that you are taking as an insider.

Answer:need password to unlock laptop

Needs to contact the network so that it can verify your account. This means that it is a member of a domain, therefore almost certainly a corporate PC. Ask your network administrator to reset your password to one of your choice.(Obviously we can't give you advice other than that as another scenario would be that it was a stolen laptop.)

Hi there @sandovalnatalie,  Thank you for joining in on the HP Support Forums and Welcome! I understand that you forgot the password to log into your Notebook. There is a document called How to Recover Your Forgotten Password. Although it says for Windows 8, it should work for Windows 10 also. Some of the information I am about to give you will seem reiterated. However, in this document you will see that it says, "CAUTION: If you are using a local user account HP cannot recover or reset your password if it is lost or forgotten. If you prefer to use a local user account, HP strongly recommends creating a password reset disk to enable you to reset your password in case it is forgotten. If you do not have a password reset disk and you forget your password, you may be directed to perform a full recovery to original factory conditions and will lose any data that was not backed up to an external location." There is a document from Microsoft that I found also called When you can't sign in to your Microsoft account. Hopefully one of these two documents helps resolve the issue. Let others know if this reply was helpful by clicking the Accept as Solution button. You can also show your appreciation by clicking the Thumbs Up.  Please let me know how this goes.Thanks!

I have Satellite 350D laptop. One of 2 users can no longer access internet. A message comes up seeking permission for 3rd party to make changes. This message will not go away either by answering 'No' or by clicking on 'x' in top right hand corner. The user can proceed no further.

I am very untechnical and this problem is causing a lot of frustration. I would appreciate any advice.

Answer:How to unlock a user on Satellite 350D laptop?

What happens if you click yes?

Often if you have extra users one may have administrator privileges and the other is a basic user (which does not have administrator privileges). Administrator privileges allow you to make changes to the system, like installing software, changing system settings etc. If I run a program when I'm on my regular user (like when connecting to the internet) and it wants to install something it might ask me to type in my password for my administrator user. Once I've done that once it makes the change and it won't have to do it next time.

Check the settings for each of the users to see what type of user they are (in windows, you would select start->control-panel->users or accounts or something like that depending on version).

You could either give them all administrator rights (usually a bad idea as they might make random changes to the computer you don't want), or preferably login as administrator when they see the message, do whatever needs doing and then switch back to their user again. Once you've changed what the system needs it shouldn't ask again.

Does that help?

Since the Windows 10 upgrade, I've periodically experienced a problem with the machine unloacking after it goes to sleep.  The spinning wait indicator comes up and the screen starts flickering.  I've waited several minutes and it never completes.  The event viewer is filled with things like: "Activation of app Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy!WindowsDefaultLockScreen failed with error: The remote procedure call failed. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information."  I'm not sure what log that's refering to - is it in event viewer also?  I don't see it.  I've found a similar report athttp://windowanswers.com/windows-8/login-lock-screen-flickering-with-wait-image-and-black-screen-lot... but that didn't help. Because the loptop is locked I can't use the usual diagnostic tools.  Any ideas?

Answer:After Windows 10 upgrade, laptop sometimes doesn't unlock

Hi @bmm9o, Thank you for posting at HP forums! I have read your post and understand that the laptop does not wake up from the sleep mode after upgrading to Windows 10.

I currently have autolock enabled and love it. I have a t420s without a finger print scanner. Is there any way the autolock function can also be used to unlock my computer by detecting my exact face. I know that my droid razr has face unlock. Maybe this is something that can be worked on and have it come out soon as a driver or something.

Answer:T420s: Face unlock available to unlock screen?

Face unlock is not available on ThinkPad. It is more of a convenience thing, it is not absolutely secure as a authentication method.

Its a hardware issue, could be a liquid spill? Try opening the back cover and cleaning the contacts with iso-propyl alcohol or any electric circuit cleaner. If it doesn't work then send it for repair

If you do not have it, you can contact Microsoft and they will sell you a product key for your computer.Also, what you did is not recommended. The chip drivers for a Toshiba and a Compaq are different. You will need to go to the HP site for the night drivers.

Yesterday I was on my laptop and before I shut it down it went into what looked like a different mode. I booted it up this morning and it is still in this mode. It looks like touch screen mode but I do not have a touch screen.  The icons on the task bar are spaced out and there is a back button on the task bar too which is not normally there. When i right click against the task bar, one of the buttons says "Show touch keyboard button".  All of my files are spead out as if to have room for touching if I had a touch screen but I do not.

Question: Compaq Laptop

I have a Compaq Presario F761 US Notebook PC and was wondering how compatible it would be with linux? I also wanted to know about abandonware and roms if they were easy to run in linux. My biggest concern is losing freeware I run in windows, however I think I can make the transition after visting gizmo freeware. I am concerned about drivers for periphrials I use such as game pad printer and mouse in compatibility with linux.
 

Answer:Compaq Laptop

Are you tired of Windows?

I believe this little laptop can handle 2GB of RAM with no problem. You could simply run Ubuntu from a disc, and leave Windows intact.

What are your current specs, and how intense is the gaming you are planning on running?

Most emulators have a Linux version.

So i went to press the button that changes the viewing mode (im not sure of the name of that button, the one that changed between the screen or and external device or both). So i found a button (F4) that has a sorta screen image on it, which was colored blue (Hold Fn for that command) So i tryed it and nothing happens... No matter what i think of nothing appears.

Answer:Compaq Laptop

Laptops are a bit more complicated to troubleshoot than desktops because you can't easily swap parts. From your description it could be anything. Since you "hear" something, obviously the system has power. Connect a monitor to it and see what happens. Check what happens with the AC adapter disconnected and then take out the battery and plug it in and see what happens.

Question: Compaq laptop!

Hi!
I want to buy a used Compaq laptop with Win98. The owner say it has a problem: computer goes to Compaq's help program when you start it and you can't go to neither windows or dos. Is it a difficult problem to fix? I though of reinstalling the OS but how can I do it if I can't access dos.

Thanks, Alan

Answer:Compaq laptop!

Heyyo,

Now, OS cd's usually can boot straight to the installation of the OS. So you might have to hit F6 as you boot to select to boot the cdrom, or whatever button your bios asks to boot to that to change the boot order (I like to do floppy drives, cdrom, and then hd's).

Then? you can install over it, or you can do stuff like delete the C: partition and create it again, or see if it has some cd's to set it back to how it was back to the manufacturer's defaults or whatever compaq calls that stuff.

Anywho, yeah, I'm sure that would fix the prob man. But I dunno, if you have some spare cash dude get a better laptop, this one won't be any good for gaming, it'll be decent in surfing the net, creating business documents n' such, but nothing too hardcore.

The laptop itself is 18 months old, and was running win XP.  She said she has been using it for chatting and surfing.  Anyway, one day when she tried to turn it back on, it just kept cycling between power on (The power light came on and the fan came on) and power off.  There is no display on the screen at all.  I tried to reboot it with a win xp disk, but whenever i press the power button, the laptop comes on for a while and it seems like in addition to the fan, the disk is also being read (flashing light on disk drive).  But the laptop turns off shortly thereafter without any display.  What do you guys think is the problem?

Answer:I have a Compaq laptop

Is this with the battery in it?  And, running on just battery power or with the AC adapter plugged in? You might try removing the battery and running it directly off the AC adapter.

Hey, I just purchased two day's ago a compaq presario laptop from bestbuy. After two day's of having it i've noticed something about the screen the top half is darker than than the bottom. It is usually only noticeable when the background color is a light color like white or grey. The screen is a 13 inch HPA display. My question is... Is this normal? I know the screens they put in them isn't the best quality. Also I noticed when looking at the display units you could see a lot of them the screens had these weird lines in them. Should I take it back and pick up another one? I have 14 day's to exchange it. I paid 1100 bucks for it and I was thinking you shouldn't see anything like this in the display. What do you guys and gals think? Thanks, Jeff
 

Answer:My New Compaq Laptop

Take it back and put it up against another one to see if there is a differance.

The screen is the most expensive part on a laptop and you have to look at it every day.

I once bought a monitor that had a small flaw in it. I regretted not taking it back after seeing it for two years

Flashing the bios is a dangerous thing to do.

I am unsure as to where else i could post this issue i am having.

I purchased a Compaq Presario 1500 3 years ago, and about a year ago, the laptop turned itself off mid-use and has not turned back on since.

I have tried a new power supply, the power supply gives off a high pitched Beeping (yes, from the power supply) when i plug it into the laptop. Lap top still does not turn on.

I would love to just donate this laptop to the local community college, for their class to repair, and be able to use, however, there are doccuments I would like to retrieve from the hard drive first.

My questions are:
Is there any idea as to why the laptop shut itself off?
Is there a way to easily troubleshoot and repair it myself?
Is there a way to put the hard drive into another computer and retrieve those doccuments?



Any assistance is appreciated.

Bethy

Edit added: The computers I have access to if the hard drive can be moved is a Dell laptop, and two home built machines.
 

Answer:Compaq laptop issue

The power supply beeping would suggest that there is a short somewhere inside the laptop, a dead battery perhaps? Have you tried running the thing without the battery pack?

Whether you can repair the thing yourself, depends on the exact fault and your electronics skills

Yes, there are adapters that let you connect notebook hard drives to normal IDE cables. Also, you can buy external hard drive enclosures that accept notebook drives.

Hi All

Hope you can help

I have a compaq presario V6500. I tried to turn it on the other day and it won't start up. It takes me to start up repair but can't fix the issue. It then takes me to a screen where I have to select keyboard layout and then select an operating system. The problem is there is no operating system to select. Can anybody help me with this issue. Is there anyway I can test the hard drive to see if its working, take it out or whatever?

Thanks

Craig
 

Answer:Compaq Laptop won't start

You can take it out, connect it to another desktop or leave it in.

Determine the brand of the hard disk. Download the manufacturer's testing utility and follow their instructions to run a test. If the disk is bad, you can replace it. If not, you may be able to recover the data using something like Bart's PE.

Run the test and get back with your result before we can proceed further.

I restored my win 7 system to an earlier date, which usually works fine. (at least on my Dell desktops.)
My Compaq laptop was purchased new but no restore disc was included. I have had a number of Win 7 complaint problems, but now the screen is so dark it can only be seen in a completely dark room.
Thank whoever for Windows XP pro on my two Dell desktops. They never fail to the point that I cannot restore them.
Is there a restore cd for a Compaq laptop with windowz 7 home premium.

Answer:need Restore CD for Compaq laptop

On the Compaq/HP's that I've seen there was a "one time" procedure to make the backup discs. If you didn't do it and if you can see the screen enough to do it, the procedure may still be there.

There are "recovery" partitions on some to restore from the recovery. Check HP for the specific model and see if that is an option.

You say the screen is dark, that is usually not an OS problem. Reinstalling probably will not fix that. Its most likely a hardware problem, considering the age of the PC.
