HP Laptop Compaq NX9500. Problems with motherboard. Found there is classaction suit but this serial number is just outside those that are covered. HP no longer makes replacement parts and refuses to give any help other than a $200 trade in value. Any suggestions? I hate HP tech support

Check with any local computer repair shops, they may have another compaq nx9500 laying around that they could swap the motherboards with. Some may even offer to do a free diagnostic.

I also found this ebay auction which offers motherboard repair (don't worry, it's not mine):
http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-nx9500-nx9500A-nx9600-MOTHERBOARD-REPAIR_W0QQitemZ140286672043QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item140286672043&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

If all else fails, you can sell the parts off piecemeal (memory, hard drive, cd/dvd drive, etc.) on ebay and try to get more than $200.

How do i restore my compaq preesario 2700t labtop to orignal


Put the Restoration Disk in, and when asked choose Full Install. (Destructive Installation) This takes it back to Day 1, when it came from the factory.

ALL of your personal info is GONE.

ALL programs/applications you downloaded, and installed; or physically installed, is GONE.

Don't have the Restoration Disk?

Get the Restoration Disk from HP Support.
In the US the disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

On the Bottom of the laptop is the white Service Tag. You need the Serial Number written down, to give to the nice representative on the phone.
S/N = Serial Number

Call 800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For other countries use HP Support Worldwide,

Is an emachine boot disk W2828 compatible with compaq presario desk topS4000v series?


No.

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components;

1) Processor
2) Motherboard chipset
3) BIOS program, version, and date
4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Instead, I would like to post that you can get the Restoration Disk, for your Compaq.

THE disk.

On the back of the desktop is the Serial Number in a white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
Only give this to an authorized HP representative.
(HP bought out Compaq)

In the US the disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Write the Serial Number down to give to the nice representative.

Outside the US,

After you install the Restoration Disk in the computer, and when asked, choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

How to Install a PCI Serial Port on an HP Compaq dc7700p small form factor


That "PCI Serial Port" is probably part of a PCI modem that is connected into a PCI slot on the motherboard.

Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.hp.com
and enter 'dc7700p' and do a search for device-drivers for your computer.
Download the device-driver. Install it.

Hp compaq d350 sff processors compatibility


Your best bet is to work from the existing processor model number, since manufacturers can change the motherboard in a given model of computer from one range of serial numbers to the next. They sometimes also offer the same model of computer with different processors and motherboards at different prices. So you can not tell much from the model number of the computer.

May I also advise you that changing a processor requires a little special procedures, equipment, and knowledge these days. It is not just unplug one and plug in the other any more. If you do not know what you are doing you could easily "fry" the new processor from excessive heat, due to incorrect installation. So look for some help if you are not sure of the details for replacing a processor chip. It's not hard, just that some things that may not be obvious are critical.

How do I install a serial port to my Compaq Presario?


You will need to buy a PCI serial port card and plug it into a PCI card slot on the motherboard.

My friend has a Compaq presario f600 laptop & needs to replace the motherboard. What sort of motherboard would he need to get for it please?


I think I have the same laptop that also needs a motherboard. The Presario F600 also had a m/n of F572US found on the label with serial. Looking on the Compaq site I found the motherboard is the same as for the F500 notebooks which is 442875-001. Link is at: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01095493.pdf This number is also found under the memory chips on most Compaq/Hp Laptops. Simply open memory cover and remove the memory chips and there you will find the Motherboard replacement number. Good Luck!
