I bought a Compaq Presario CQ60 (came with win Vista), about 2 years ago, and when the first time that i run the notebook, i made quickly the Recovery Disk dvd, but about some time (+/- 1 year) the notebook start to freeze many times.
Then i thougth was better to recover with the factory default.
But when i started the recovery disk....it stopped at middle and appears an "Error 1005" in the screen.
Could anyone help me with that error ? Because i don't know what it means..
It may also be a good idea to run the following tests, just to make sure your Hard Drive and Memory are ok.
Tap away at f10 as you start the notebook to enter the bios menu. Under the Advanced or Diagnostic tab you should find the facility to run a test on the Hard Drive and Memory. Run the Hard Drive test first and if this passes, run the Memory test.
If you get any errors from the above test, post back.
