This laptop was first offered in 2004. It's time has come and repair costs will outstrip its replacement.
I have a compaq F572US and every time I turn it on, the system hangs at the boot screen, (compaq Logo, and option to go into BIOS) then if just restarts. I've went into the BIOS its not picking up the Hard Drive (on the self diagnostic test, says no IDE device, which is true, the drive is SATA, so...) it woln't even boot from the CD. I can get into the BIOS, I've reset the CMOS several times,still woln't boot. Any help is much apericated
