    Hi, Please read the entire text of this reply. thanks.

    The reason for the system hang is a conflict in hardware. However since you have a notebook this is not easily resolved.

    The solution would be to use the edition of W2K you are using, but if you can find a copy of W2K without a service pack, that may install for you.

    The only other thing would be an improperly formatted hard drive. There is usually an option to allow the installer to format the hard drive. This may resolve your problem.

    Otherwise, you are really between a rock and a hard place. You could try installing W98 and see if it will install no problems And if so, there may be a scratch or error on your CD for W2K and that may be at the root of your problem.

    In any case, don't bother to rate this response. I would encourage you to post in the free forum to get more input and then if there is no response for a day, pay the $13 and get instant responses from many mostly qualified techs.

Dear Sir, I have a compaq nc6000,who is always hanging after power on' pls sollution for how can i solve this hanging problem.

if you start up in safe mode(google how to for your model notebook,its usually hold f8 after pressing the power switch),do a virus scan in safe mode with networking with a program called malewarebytes (free version) to make sure you have no malware. also go to start>run>type in msconfig and press return. go to services and click hide all microsoft services. disable anything you may recognize in both services and startup (such as skype,adobe,msn messenger,google talk) then click apply and restart. if that doesnt fix it. get your windows cd and put it into your dvd drive on the notebook and let it boot into that.go through the options and click r to repair(assuming you have xp) and let that should restart and you machine should be fixed

My compaq nc6000 did not start up. The proplem happen when I shut down for 4 days. anyone help!

Leaving a computer switched off for any length of time shouldn't matter. I have had laptops that have not been powered up for 5 years and they power up without a problem once the battery has charged and the BIOS backup cell is replaced.

I would suggest that if you were to press F8 when it is booting up, just at the point when the BIOS menu closes and choose Safe Mode,. Get it to boot from there and it may recover itself. If it doesn't do the same action but choose Recover as an option and follow the prompts.
I hope that helps.

After it boots up and goes to the desktop the screen cuts off. the power button is still lit up but the screen is blank.

During boot up press function key F8 repeatedly until the windows boot menu appears. Select boot in safe mode. If this works make sure the correct video card is selected for the laptop. Go to your control panel click on system then select the hardware tab and click on the device manager. Select display adaptor and click on the plus symbol to expand the selection. Double click on the display adaptor and select the driver tab. Click roll back driver or uninstall the driver. Reboot your system normally. When windows prompts you to install the newly found device follow the instructions to install the graphics card driver.
If this does not work connect the laptop to an external monitor to see if you can see the video on the external monitor to find out if the graphics card is working.

Hangs in the black windows xp startup screen and will not boot up in normal mode only the safe modes after power cycle

Try to start in safe mode (you said it will start in safe mode) Then do a system restore from there back to when it was working.
Should solve the problem.
I think something is trying to start up and messing up the boot-up process.

My pc doesn't startup up

I had this problem too but I then downloaded the most recent BIOS driver from the HP web site and that seems to be working. At least it now starts and boots correctly but I still have the problem that it tends to hangs up after a short while.

I want to install xp on existing vista,also wanted to remove vista on hp dv2000 labtop

If Vista it is working well on Safe Mode, you have to check it out what is going wrong there instead of downgrade the system to XP.

Remember: Which was the last program that you've installed?

When was the last time that the system started normally?

You can try uninstalling the last programs

Also clean the computer and be sure that your pc is not virus or spyware infected.
