Question about HP Compaq Evo Notebook N600c

2 Answers

NOT WORKING I was using my evo n600c...and while it was doin updates for my computer..it just shut off. I try to turn the computer on and it opens up and says COMPAQ but then it goes to a black screen, with a little white bar flicking on and off in the left hand top corner. Does anyone know of any tips to fix this or what happened to my computer?

Well actually the problem is slightly more complicated than your "OS is lost". You have damage to what is known as the MBR (Master Boot Record). This is a very solvable problem that technicians repair on a regular basis. However, it does require either a bootable floppy or CD-ROM. 
If you have another computer that has a working CD burner then I recommend FreeDOS (download it here http://www.freedos.org/freedos/files/). If you choose to go this route post back I will give you more specific instructions. (For other experts: the fixmbr command will solve this issue as it is the corruption of the header)

Some way, you have lost your operating system. You should try to reformat your hard drive, and then install a fresh copy of your operating system. This has happened to me before, and what I am saying here is what I ended up having to do.

    I am sorry, but the only way that you can do it is to either have the restore disks that came with the computer, which you say you don't have, or get an Operating System CD. You could also take it to a computer repair center and get them to do it. But that is the only way to reinstall your OS.

  • Gino Felina Sep 05, 2008

    The best deals for an Operating System, if you want to save money, is go to Ebay.com. In the search field, type in the Operating System that you want i.e. Vista, XP....etc. I am sure that some will come up, and you can purchase one there at really great deals. Other options are in stores such as Office Depot, Circuit City, Best Buy.

Compaq Evo N600c Laptop over 5 years old but has been working fine. About 2 months ago the screen went dark (bad lamp?) so been using an external monitor. Turned it on this morning and it started to boot...


Do you see any lights on the laptop that are on? If you see any lights and only a black screen, then more than likely your video chip on the motherboard has gone out. Some local shops might be able to replace the motherboard it might be cheaper than buying a new laptop. Good luck

Give me password for compaq evo n600c


You can remove your bios password by reseting your CMOS battery or jamper. You need to open your notebook remove first the battery and all screw at the back of your notebook. You can see there a CMOS battery together with the CMOS jamper. Just read it you can read CLRSCR which means clear cmos, just pull it with in 10 seconds and insert it back. Now you are done to reset bios.

Power-on password bypass


You'll need to get under the keyboard or open some of the available openings on the bottom of the laptop.

What you're looking for is a battery. This is known as the CMOS battery. Once removed, power on the computer.

If it doesn't prompt you for the password, then you have successfully erased the memory.


Hope this helps :)
