20 Most Recent HP Compaq nx7300 Notebook Questions & Answers


The main problem I assume from what you are reporting is the computer is powered up. but will not boot? Forget the Battery, lets look at the boot process. Considering that the computer has power, the CPU is sending instructions to the hard drive, Please Boot and Start Up. If the Hard drive is defective, it will not obey any instructions to start because the Boot Feature is not operative. Most likely the problem. Remove the hard drive and replace it with a new drive. The new drive is partitioned and ready for the operating system to be applied. You will need a new updated OS (Operating System Win 10) to boot and add programs. Replacing a hard drive is easy. Open the case, locate the hard drive, disconnect it, remove, and look at the details printed on the drive. Usually a SATA drive. You can purchase a new drive on Amazon for $30. This is dependent on the capacity, the 1Gig are about $40. In reverse, put the new drive in the old drives slot, hook up the wires like they were with the previous drive, and with the new Operating System disc inserted into the CD/DVD drive, turn on the computer. The CD/DVD should spin and on the monitor, show the start up for the Installation of the software. It asks for the licensed Key from the OS container. Just go from there. When complete, the new hard drive will be formatted and contain the WIN OS. Now you can boot the computer and add new programs. As for the old drive, if it was dead, you may have lost all data. Always do a back up along the way to preserve valuable data. Using USB Sticks is a good method.

all that work on old Compaq why?
if the DC pack voltage is in spec then its ok.
a voltmeter tells you that easy, we, when lids off and at the internal jacks pins, under full load.
most laptops, had many processor choices, and up to 3 power packs matching that and up to 3 video cars, my HP5840w has that.

if BIOS screens are dead, you lost power, Im sure screen is ok)
BIOS most always work its resident in ROM and always works.
even with HDD /SSD removed.
its the acid test for all PCs.
this,Since the days of IBM PC Jr.... (with rom packs)

If it's a BIOS password, it'll usually be defeated by removing the CMOS battery* on the motherboard for a couple of hours.

* like a watch battery.

normally in the boot options, press F8 key on boot and there should be a repair option up the top, there is also factory restore options if you press the right Keys on boot up. i think that F11 F12 may be the keys.

For Windows Password:
1. Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box.
2. Type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank.
3. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you should be able to reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Log in screen.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Boot your computer in safe mode and check if you are able to log off successfully. If yes, there is some software creating problem in log off in normal mode. If no, there is some problem with Windows.
