Compaq Presario laptop locks on login screen, power off and it hibernates.
Posted on 2006-04-04
When I turn on Compaq Presario laptop w/XP Pro on it, it "resumes" Windows, then stops at the logon screen. Pressing ctrl-alt-del doesn't do anything. If I press the power button, the computer goes into hibernation. I can't get F5 or F8 do work, I think because it's coming out of hibernation, not a fresh bios read. I tried popping the battery out, that didn't help.
Any suggestions? Much appreciated :)
