Summary: I have had my computer since 2009; It's gone from a standard personal use laptop to the main laptop at the office. I'm an accountant, and have QB's downloaded, along with tons of home videos & pics downloaded, and this computer has never let me down. It runs great going on 5 years. I've replaced the battery once. I didn't think this laptop would last as long as it has, and in 2009 I'd purchased it new for roughly $350.00.
Summary: Try doing a Hard Reset. You can do this by removing the battery and unplugging the AC Adapter. Then press and hold the power button on the laptop for about 30 seconds, then put the battery back in and plug in the AC Adapter and try turning it on again.
Excerpt: this laptop is perfect for on the go work. it is equiped with windows vista and all the tools u could possibly needed. it is easily internet accessable. it plays dvds at the touch of a button with windows dvd play. it has alot of memory .the only downside is that it has a short battery life.
Excerpt: First off this is a great computer. I got it for around $400 bucks! thats a great price! I love this computer. The memory is great but it tends to get used up with updated. I still have around 100gb left though. And dont forget the advertised memory will be a little less because of preset programs and such. I havent really had any problems with the computer at all except for the battery life is about 1 and a half hours.
Excerpt: I bought the Compaq Presario because of the price. It was affordable. Since I have had it I havent had any problems. Its one of the fastest I have ever had and I can do anything I want on it. I usually check emails only but when I get to surfing the web I have unlimited access.
Excerpt: I bought my compaq laptop for school and friends had problems with other brands except this one! its lasted me going on 4 years now and i absolutely love it! if i ever need a new computer, it will definately be a compaq regardless if its a laptop or desktop!
Excerpt: I did not realize how wonderful a computer could be until I purschased this laptop. I love it and would be lost without it! It is easy to use, Light weight, and pretty cheap consdiering other laptops! This is one thing that I cannot live without. After first I thought that I would have a hard time on the transition from desktop computer to a laptop but compaq has proven to be easy to use and understand.
