Try holding the power button for 30seconds. This might reset the BIOS settings. If this doesnt work the your gonna have to remove the CMOS battery inside the laptop. You will have to go through the HP service manual and figure out where it is.

The TC4200 does boot from a USB device, if you connect the USB device to the system it should detect it right away. You may have to change the boot order/

When you booting and you see the Compaq boot screen press F10 to enter the BIOS
Go into the Advanced Menu, there you will be able to set the boot order.

Want to reinstall OS on compaq tc4200. don't have passwords..


If the BIOS password is set, you'll need to return the device to HP/Compaq to get that reset. Only other option I can think of would be to whip the hard disk out and see if it'll boot from a CD at that point. If that is the case, you could theoretically put the drive in another PC, wipe it completely and then reinstall it. The machine will try to boot from HDD, fail and then boot from CD next.

Reset bios


There's no need to reset your BIOS, only you do is to set in your BIOS Setup to boot priority like for example First Boot Priority is your CD/DVD Rom Drive, if you got some Bootable System Disc then the Second Boot Priority is your Hard Disk Drive. Good luck!

Reset the bios on a compaq tc4200


I haven't tried it yet, but according to HP's "Maintenance and Service Guide" (Available in PDF from their Support website) you have to completely break down the computer, remove the mainboard and the CMOS battery should be located on its underside. Remove it for five minutes, replace and reassemble EXCEPT FOR BATTERY and turn it on under AC power only. I just purchased one that needs reset, but haven't received it yet, so I cannot attest to its effectiveness except that this is deirect from HP. Hope it helps!

HP tablet PC tc4200 latch fixable?


In a pinch, you can pop the lid open on these by sliding a credit card between the screen and base chassis. Typically when the latch breaks on a tc4200/4400 it will need to be replaced unless it is simply jammed.
