Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook

1 Answer

Unit shuts off as it's powering on.

I have a compaq n610c with 768 mem and windows vista installed. I am finding now that when I am booting up and I see the beginning Vista screen (it doesnt complete), it powers itself off and recycles itself forever until I finally pull the power cord. I've pressed F8 to disable the unit from rebooting when finding an error but it seems to ignore it.

    I can only run it without the battery in. It was an additional problem that I didn't put down originally. I know the fans are running because I feel the heat generated. I also have a lap fan as well to cool it down. I have checked the vents and blew them clean with a duster.

    If it's already running without battery then either the motherboard is faulty (most likely it's voltage regulators) or there is a chance you have bad RAM. If there is more than 1 RAM module I would try one at a time by itself to see if one of them is good. If both RAM modules cause the same problem then the next obvious culprit is the motherboard. You may find a replacement motherboard online, eBay is your best bet, but it might be pretty pricey.

You need to re image your hard drive as the OS is now incomplete or corrupt. Try booting from a Vista DVD and choose repair or pressing F8 and choose restore to an earlier time or known good configuration. If that works you will be OK otherwise you need a Vista OS disc and have to install a new version of windows.

Compaq evo n610c 1gb ram is support for windows 7


Not at all!!
I've installed Windows7 in my n610c (with !gb ram) and my laptop is perfectly working.
Windows 7 is not the 'awful' Vista!!!
The most important things are W7 drivers for this laptop. In order to obtain these drivers, you've to download and install 7zip, then you've to expand in folders the exe files of audio ,video, etc.  drivers of windows xp, and let the system find the suitable drivers..
InstallingXP drivers (exe files) in W7  is not possible!

Also ram may be increased over 1Gb, but you've to install the O.S.
after having upgraded your ram, otherwise graphic card will be not working, even reinstallig its driver!!!
I've just made these operations in two Compaq evo n610c, successfully.
I'd  a problem only for Infrared port, but I've fixed it 'asking' system to find the driver into an external usb HDD full of drivers of various PCs. After a few time , also Infrared port driver was OK.
I've made a backup od windows7 drivers (you may use double driver(free) or Windriver Ghost (not free), in order to backup w7 drivers.

How much more memory can I install


This laptop can support up to a max of 1 GB of RAM , so if you buy 1 stick of 1 GB of RAM you need to take out the 768 MB and just put the 1 stick of 1 GB RAM, or your other option is to buy a 256 MB of RMA so your computer will still have a max of 1 GB of RAM and that would be cheaper and you can still use your old RMA on your laptop , this is the lin for the complete specs of your laptop http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Compaq-Refurbished-COMPAQ-P4-M-1-8GHZ-256MB-30GB-14-1-TFT-CDRW-W-XP

Screen goes off


Try booting into safe mode.. press F8 before the windows screen, and select Safe Mode as the boot option. If that is a temporary fix, then reinstall the driver, and make sure your Hertz settings are correct!
