Re: is bad news

Hi there. Bluescreens and lockups, i first check for bad ram, or hard drive. Have you tried checking your ram chip(s) with Memtest86+ ? You get it for free at If has both a floppy and cd version of it, and you can boot from on of those 2 formats to check your ram chips for failures. If it tests ok, you might wanna check your hard drive also, there's many utilities out there that works for that. You might wanna check the drive manufacturer, then download and use the utility provided on their website to check it. Hope that helps, cheebster.

How do i install windows vista off of my compaq resario 1692 laptop that has windows 98

How do you install Windows 7 on your Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, that currently has Windows 98 on it? (Win98SE?)

I would NOT.


Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System, to communicate with a device.

Windows 98, Windows XP, and Windows 7, are some examples of an O/S. (Operating System)

The optical drive (CD/DVD drive), audio, (Sound), graphics, and Ethernet, are some examples of a Device.

Let's go to HP Support, and look at the drivers available for the Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, (HP bought out Compaq),

HP Support > Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC > Main Support page,

In the list click on the blue - Software and Driver Downloads.
(Don't believe we can use the Ampersand on here. That's why I used -
and )

Takes you to this page,

On this page you are asked to choose your Operating System.
In the rectangular box that has - Select - in it, go to the right of the box, and left-click on the blue down arrow.

In the drop down list you will see that Windows 7 is not listed.
This means there are no drivers for your laptop, and Windows 7.

There have been many people caitlynbrean, that have installed Windows 7 on their computer, only to find that it will not work.

Sorry it couldn't have been better news.

MY HP COMPAQ NC 6000 LAPTOP request a Drivelock HDD bay password

Hi kala_mumbe,

I know how you feel as my HP pavilion has had the same blue screen ansking for the 'drivelock multibay password' . the good news is i have fixed it just 5 mins ago.

I think that you have to get into the bios first. Lets see if I can show you how I helped it to boot up:
  1. at the blue screen I pressed the F10 Key which took me into setup
  2. i then selected the security tab
  3. and then I think I selected drivelock password
  4. and then selected the "Notebook hard drive" item where I tried to disable, with no success

    PLEASE NOTE: at this point I noticed that each time that i tried to disable the password it kept returning to the item 'Notebook hard drive' . I thought to myself that maybe this is the password and not just an item on the list, so I carefully wrote down .. Notebook hard drive .. taking note of capitalization and spaces and then exited setup.
  5. I then noticed that there was nowhere to enter the password so i carefully typed .. Notebook hard drive .. onto the keyboard, and waited. After about 1 min a small 'OK' appeared inside the blue box and my heart leaped for joy inside my chest.
  6. I waited... and a black screen apeared with the wite cursor blinking
  7. and I waited... this time about 5 mins passed and then windows started to load. Thank God!
I hope you get some joy out of this post and it's not too late for your Campac Laptop.

happy, happy

Works great but then with no warning i get a blue screen with white writing saying that windows has encountered a problem. i then have to start up the computer again.this has been happening more often.

BSODs are usually drivers that fail. They can get updated by Windows update if you allow it. You need to find out what driver is causing the problem and replace it with the original. This site will help you determine what is causing the BSOD and then you can take corrective action

Blue Screen of death

According to this link, the memory of Compaq Evo N610c can be upgradable to 1024 mb.

Memory Upgrade for Compaq Evo N610C, the Compaq Evo N610C takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with of Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Evo N610C to up to a maximum of 1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with standard Memory installed. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system. (Souce:

So you have to install 512mb memory module on each slot to make up 1024mb of memory.

Did you install 512mb memory module on each slot or did you just install 1GB memory module in one slot?

Try to go back to 256mb RAM and see if you will have the same blue screen error. If you did not receive any blue screen, try to add memory into it or just insert 512mb first and then oserve again if you will have the blue screen error.

You may also want to go to these links for other suggestions.
