Question: So that we know what the options are before we go down this path: -is there data on this laptop you have to have? -Do you have the original installation CD from Compaq?

I have hp compaq nc6400 1.66 ram 1gb but duraing windows installation very slow plz send me soulation

Firstly you have to do a locally or remotly backup of all your documents cause in this process you may loose some of your vital document. Check to see if your Operating System (OS) is up to date. Or you can do a Restore if you have creat One. Its a Software issue and once you Re-install your Operating stsrem all will be fine.

I installed a rompaq update on the laptop and it stopped working. what do i do? the laptop is so dear to me. pls help.


if the laptop was working perfectly before you installed the rompaq update, then it means the rompaq is the cause of the problem.

You need to perform a system restore in order to undo the installed rompaq.

Run your system in safe mode and perform the system restore.

To run system in safe mode, Turn on the computer and immediately, start pressing F8 constantly till a windows booting option shows up. Use the arrow key on your keyboard to select safe mode and press enter, then wait for the windows to load completely.

After the computer and successfully booted in safe mode, go to:

Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore.

Read and follow instructions. System will restart during the restore process.....

After that try again and observe of your laptop will function/work properly/normally.

Please let me know if this doesn't solve your problem so that I can help you further.

My compaq nc8000 will try to boot up (only shows window xp, then goes to a blue screen with a lot of dots in it), but first shows zeros all across the screen not allowing you to do anything at all.

Hi, sounds like what is known as the blue screen of death. You can try reseting your operating system to an earlier time, before the problem began, by pressing the ESC or Del key during bootup, this will give you the option to boot into safe mode, from where you can attempt the reset. Or you can insert the CD that came with your compaq and perform a system restore. Both of these options will not remove any saved data.

No sound/ audio

Did we try doing a system restore for the most recent available dates. Or we can a perform a last known good configuration from advanced start up menu.
