still feeling dumber than a bag of hammers..

well, well, finally , apparently, I have detected a 'pattern'

After I am forced to reboot in SAFE mode, I go into CONFIGSYS and change ANYTHING, just change something...uncheck some items in the startup tab, or switch from selective to normal. or back again.

When I reboot.., it seems to boot 'normal' the next time,(6 times in a row) , after doing this, --> but the 'lockup/freezing' problem, affecting the computer ,while operating in normal mode still exists.

The 'pattern' only seems to affect the 'freezing' in the startup process . ?? a clue perhaps...

Hi there, I am soooo sick of this problem. UGH

Install another partition trick..yeah I'm willing, and YES I do have a 'burner'

The burner doesn't work - it also 'freezes' if I try to burn anything. Actually I do a lot of burning on this computer. I collect rare music, an am forever burning CD's and Data Cd's.

In Safe mode - DOS I can access the screen you linked to HP (above) problem is my options are:

Accept values =F10 or QUIT = ESC. There is no F5 command or any other type of option.

re: Report.txt and 7-zip files. If I try to access them to import to my message , the computer freezes. I can access it when I'm in DOS or Safe Mode , but then can't go on the internet (catch22)

****, I forgot to list the Compaq PlSS-sorry-oh machine # it's 7585. Actually it's a pent 3 /566

I misunderstood that it was an early Pent4 - my bad

it's DRIVER 11.CAB not River or RVR - sorry typing error

My HD -about 10G (snicker) is partitioned currently 2.5 Gigs 'D' drive (system sav. and system files.- 856 mb left open.

On my Main 'C' drive Windows takes up another gig or so - and my files 3.5 Gigs - leaves about 4 gigs or 44% of Hard Drive free.

I will try and post the sections of report.txt , you requested, after closing out this reply (since-as noted above- I can't access both at the same time)

And I will check the install directory with the you commands listed.

back in a while . I will then EDIT this message

edit: (I will delete this , as soon as you review it)

OUCH!!!! Remember to put this large/long stuff inside a "codebox" (selections to the left of "add reply" box; use full reply, not fast reply).

Install files... everything there and then some (take time to find out what the heck is all there)...

Based upon your model there is no reason whatsoever you can't get into the BIOS. Since you say you have the Recovery CD, go here -


to see how to initiate a Recovery. Don't do this yet, though, just read.

If indeed you have a C: partition, a D: partition, and some "unpartitioned space" (confirm this using FDISK from MS-DOS Prompt), you may be able to do a "base install" of 98SE on it to get back up-and-running (install from the CABS folder), then Restore to that partition. Again, GET THOSE KEYS from Aida32 and be ready, 'cause anything on the original C: drive ) beyond what's installed from the Recovery CD) will have to be re-installed. Anything on "old" C: drive that you want to keep (pics, music, etc) can then be copied over to the "new" C: drive, then screw the "old" one.

Can't be right! Did you change a setting in the Control Panel?

Start->Settings->Control Panel->System

then the Performance tab (at top), then Virtual Memory (at bottom)

It better have the "Let Windows Manage" dot filled... do not specify your own! If the value is set too high it will consume your hard drive. Only other thing to cause it to get large is if you have some kind of "eat memory" virus.

Nope, no "unallocated space"... Edited by submix8c

Huh, I just finished describing how to enter the BIOS and i see that you already learned how to do it. Well, i'll leave it at the end of my post just in case it'd be of some use to others.

Before you proceed reinstalling as submix8c said, try this:

Start msconfig, press the Advanced button on the first tab, and in the new window put a checkmark on "Force Compatibility mode disk access". Don't touch the other settings yet.


Press OK, then OK again to close the program. Reboot.

To avoid freezed programs after windows starts, don't do anything until Windows fully loads. Wait until the HDD light stops flashing and stays off, then wait a few more seconds just to be sure.

P.S. when you have to post a long list, etc. put it in a code box. This is done by adding [codebox] before it and [/codebox] at the end. Like this:

Volume in drive C has no label
Volume Serial Number is 390D-9DB3

How to enter the BIOS setup:

From my experience, often Compaq systems don't let you in BIOS after restart, only after power off/on (might be a common bug on these).

Turn off your PC, wait a few seconds, then turn it on. Immediately start pumping on the F10 key. After the Compaq logo you should see either the BIOS screen or the windows logo/startup message. If windows starts booting, press the Pause/Break key, hold the power button until the PC turns off and repeat with each F1, F2, F12, Del, Ctrl+F10 or Control+Alt+Escape keys instead of F10.

When you succeed you should see a screen similar to this:


(click on image to view in original size)


If you decide to reinstall, check that you have all needed drivers.

The ones listed on this page probably should work on your system if it's still with stock parts.

You'll also need the INF Update utility from here

ok..sorry about the codebox dealy. Now I know.Should I erase the looong file (above) are you done observing it?

No problem getting into the SETUP MANAGER , the problem is, that the options are f10 accept quit = ESC

other than that the screen looks the same. Believe me, I have checked and re-checked all the menus and F1 help.

doing the : Force compatibility mode as instructed

still the only way I can get the system to boot in NORMAL mode,after it freezes... is to go into CONFIGSYS and change something/anything..the reboots to normal

I let windows manage my swap file..it's checked

Dunno if any of the following is biting you or not (in WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI) -

Under [386Enh] section -

(yours, ignoring any other irrelevant entries)










Just for funsies, try removing (I think a semi-colon ";" in column 1 may negate it instead of deleting the line) all the lines I listed and reboot. Go here for an explanation of (many ) SYSTEM.INI parameters -


For your Real Memory (the actual hardware) they're really unnecessary (you have plenty); at least until you boot cleanly again. FWIW, I had a little bit of a problem using the Conservative(etc) setting. Don't forget to SAVE after edit; if you are forced into "save as", just save as SYSTEM.TXT, go into WinExplorer to Windows folder and rename SYSTEM.INI to SYSTEM.INX then rename SYSTEM.TXT to SYSTEM.INI, reboot...

BIOS??? Must stink and need updating; good luck with that since you have a non-functional floppy. Just for the heck of it, try going into "Setup Manager", press ENTER while a given Heading is "highlited" (by moving left/right with the "arrow" keys); bet you have access to something good... heck, the floppy may even be disabled! There are always some kind of "help" things listed at the bottom of any given sub-menu (those selected by moving around using the "arrow" keys then pressing ENTER or some-such). Sorry, it all just don't sem to track; you must not be selecting anything from the MASTER menu (which is the first screen you see).

Go ahead and blow away all the extra gunk in your posts above; no longer needed, seems ok...

I was wondering... could you disconnect all cables from your PC leaving only the power, display, keyboard and mouse connected. Check if that makes any difference.

A friend recently experienced random lock-ups while using his PC shortly after he subscribed to an ISP. It turned out to be caused by the deffective network adapter he hadn't used untill then.

So remove all network, modem, sound, etc. cables and see what happens.

This is just a shot in the dark, because I honestly do not believe this is the cause, but I can't think of much else. There is a possibility you could be suffering from some weird conventional memory shortage randomly exposed by some unrully app/driver (?). Try changing your config.sys to this (comments in italic)



DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE RAM (to provide the UMBs you're telling DOS to use)





REM DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CPQIDECD.SYS /D:IDECD001 (REM'ing because this has no effect: If you want CD-ROM access in DOS, you should also be using MSCDEX or something similar)

And your autoexec.bat


SET Path=%Path%;C:\Progra~1\Execut~1\Diskee~1; (I'm guessing diskeeper's short path, not really necessary)

SET TEMP=C:\WINDOWS\TEMP (not really necessary)

SET TMP=C:\WINDOWS\TEMP (not really necessary)


C:\PROGRA~1\GRISOFT\AVG7\BOOTUP.EXE (always good to have an anti-virus check things at startup)

wow, my lucky day , finding the gecko bug as well.

got this info , but wont be able to act on it for a few hours , as i indicated above (no electricity)

fingers crossed btw...I deleted AVG since I thought it might be the problem, So I'm going to omit that line- ok??

now there is starting to be entertainment value :lol:
