HP COMPAQ NC6000 WONT COME UP; FANRUNS AND ORANGE LIGHT FOR ABOUT 5 SECONDS AND THEN SHUTS OFF EVEN ON AC POWER OR BATTERY.


Hi DD,
Does the cursor blink on the screen before turn off?
There could be several causes for your PC's problem.The major ones though are:-
  1. A virus invasion of your PC.
  2. Your Operating System/boot log has corrupted.
Turn on the PC and press f8 on startup.Select to open on safe mode.Choose to open on a previously good working Operating System.
If this works and the PC opens,you may have to transfer your important files to an external drive then try repairing the Operating System or probably re-install it again.But first:-
  • Check the RAM[s] and make sure they are properly seated in their slots.Your Notebook has 2 memory slots under the keyboard positioned one on top of the other.The expansion slot is the one on top of the primary memory slot.Access them by flipping over the laptop and unscrewing the back cover.There in the middle is the only compartment housing the RAM[s] and the PC's CMOS battery.Unscrew.Remove the RAM[s],clean their slots and the fix them again making sure they properly fit.
  • Check the hard disks power supply.Disconnect it and re-connect it again.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

Can i burn cd in Compaq nc6000?


Hello,

Only if your nc6000 came with an optical drive in the Multibay. If it did not, you have options.

1. Purchase an external USB Optical Drive. There are loads of them out there. You'll get your best pricing from online vendors. Choose a reputable one. Tigerdirect.com and Newegg.com are well-known, but there are many others. If shopping online, I highly suggest that you read the product reviews before making a decision.

2. Depending on your exact model of notebook, you may be able to purchase direct from HP. If you will provide me with your Service Tag, Model Number and Serial Number, I'll be glad to look for you. This information is on the label on the bottom of your notebook.

Hope this helps.

Have a blessed day.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to reformat my nc6000 using my os cd?


The NC6000 sometimes has trouble booting to anything other than the primary hard drive once a valid OS has been installed. If you need to reinstall by booting it USB or to a CD/DVD; this works for me as a last resort. (Especially USB which it officially isn't supposed to be able to do.)

Insert the bootable media. Shut the laptop down. Remove the hard drive - but leave it disconnected in the bay. Start the machine, let it detect the bootable device, then hot-plug the hard drive. There is some timing involved, but it works.

I loaded several NC6000 machines running Windows 2000 to Linux and XP this way.

Multibay/cd/dvd access


If you look on the side edge of your laptop (more than likely the right side) you should see a CD/DVD drive bay with a small button. Just press that and it should pop out enough for you to finish pulling it out.

The other way to do it is to open "My Computer", right click on the icon that says "CD/DVD" and select "Eject".

Let me know if that helps.
