Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook

2 Answers

Laptop froze so restarted it.

I was recently on my laptop on ebay but the screen froze for atleast 10 minutes so i switched it off and restarted it but now it says disc error and wont boot to windows. i have to keep the windows disc in because if i dont it just says insert disc. anyway when it says disc error it then says press ctrl/alt/del to restart but when i do that it just says disc error again. ive change the hardrive but it says the same thing so i dont think its that. ive also tryed the windows disc on my pc and that works fine. maybe its the thing that reads the disc.. if so is it easy to change?

thankyou.

Hi,

thats no problem, go to the manufacturers website. download the VGA ( graphics Drivers ) For the model you have. re-install the Drivers.
And your problems should be solved.
alternatively, is to download ( from another computer ) burn to cd, and insert at system startup. you,ll probably need to unpack the downloaded file(s) first, as thier usually Zipped or Rar. ( winzip-Winrar )

Many Thanks Mike @ Compurepair.

Hi,
thankyou for your request.
it,s not necessarily the CD Disk, that it,s refering to. it may be the hard-disk.
if your having to leave the windows cd in the drive, then your hard-drive ( Disk ) may be lacking a few files on it, and reading from the cd for the missing files.
what you need to do, is format the hard-drive, then go through the re-installation of windows. when you,ve done that. ensure that all of your decive drivers are installed correctly.
if you go to My Computer/control Panel/ system/Device manager Any devices not correctly installed, usually have a yellow exclamation mark by them.

if this solves your problems, please rate as fixya.

if your still having problems, please post a reply here.

many thanks Mike @ compurepair.

    Hi,

    i,d check any programs that are using the sound card.

    also may be worth uninstalling and re-installing the drivers for the sound-card. sometimes works.

    also run a good virus scan on the computer.

    if this fails, you may have a motherboard-sound card fault.



    Hope this Helps.



    Mike.

My hp laptop froze while using it and now l have tried restarting it in safe mode and l can't get past the sign in. If l can't get in then l can't try to fix it. What can l do?


I couldn't follow what did you mean by 'l can't get past the sign in.' You can try to solve each and every unusual issues by removing all the power supplying devices such as adapter, battery and other standy powers if any.Press the power button of the laptop without any power for atleast one minute and leave the system free half a day or more.

How can i get past an error reading BOOTMGR is missing?


Hi.

To recover the system from the hidden partition follow the instructions below.

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the left Alt, and the F10 keys.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the Acer eRecovery Management application has loaded, select your restore type.
  5. Read the notice, and then click Next when you are ready.
  6. Click Next to begin the restore process. The restore can take anywhere fom 10 minutes up to an hour.
  7. Once the restore is complete your computer will reboot. Upon rebooting it will load Windows and start installing your drivers and software. Your computer will reboot several times during this process. After everything is complete your computer will be like it was when you first purchased it.


Regards.

So my laptop froze yesterday and I turned it off to restart it. When I restarted it it everything was normal but after the starting windows goes away it usually goes to the login page well now all it does...


Try starting it in safe mode.
When the computer is starting just after the beep or when the bios info goes away press f8 repeatedly and you will get an option to open in regular or safe mode.
Alternativly you can also hold down teh ctrl key and it should do the same.
Did you install or update and drivers recently?
