Question about HP Compaq nc6220 Notebook

1 Answer

Hp nc6220 freezes when moving the display. move it a little farther and the computer may run fine again but any jiggle could cause it to freeze. open or close the display even a little bit seems to fix it and it resumes the program just as if nothing had happened. it acts like there must be a loose wire but i opened it up and tested all connections and could not find the culprit. One strange thing - If I push hard on the upper right corner of the laptop in the area of the serial port it seems to fix the problem but I cannot hold there forever. Has anyone ever had a similar issue?

SOURCE: HP pavilion DV6700nr laptop looses power

If it is (and it does sound like) a heat problem, the first thing do to would be to make sure the vents are clean and the fan and heatsink are free of dust buildup.

Here is a page from HP to assist you in doing so:

Reducing heat in notebooks

If you go into the BIOS setup, many have an option to monitor the CPU temp. Watch it and see what temp your computer shuts down.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Inverted Colors When Laptop Screen is Moved

hi
you are absolutely right.

there are basically two connections.

  1. at the motherboard end.
  2. at the display end.

any of the connector may be malfunctioning.

i ll suggest you not to open it yourself if you dont have prior experience in it.

while it wont take much to repair its not a costly affair.

if your system is under warranty it can be repaired for free.

if you find the solution helpful plz rate me carefully.
thnx

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.

This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

Does you machine produce any error messages?
One of the programs you installed is probably causing the freezes.
Try to identify any programs that freeze when you try to run them.
Uninstalling the program should help solve the problem.

You can not rule out viruses though

Hp 6220's freeze up until a little pressure is applied..


Is your hard drive installed properly? It may be that the connection pins are not making good contact.

Remove the hard drive and reinstall it. It may solve the problem.

It might possibly be the motherboard circuitry, however, if it were I would imagine that the computer would show an error message on boot-up during POST.

Were the computers dropped or somehow bumped hard?

G5 Graphics Card Freezes or begins to show lines on display


Since you are able to see your mouse pointer move, the display is refreshing so the problem is with something other than the graphics card. Generally software / OS related.

So assuming you aren't experiencing a hardware failure try the following...

Boot from the CD the computer shipped with.

Insert CD and restart the computer holding the "c" key
Your computer should boot from the CD

If so run disk utility from the CD and repair the disk as well as permissions. If there are any errors repair again.

If this is successful your computer "should" be repaired. If it is still freezing, use your CD to perform a Archive and install which should keep all your personal settings and installed software intact.

Hp s3120n slim line freezing up


Sounds like a video issue. What OS is on the machine? Try updating the video card drivers. If the OS is Windows 2000 or older, update your version of DirectX as well.
If that doesnt work, check system resources. Low memory, and low hard drive space can be a cause.
If all else fails, replace the mouse. Mice are very inexpensive now. Keep us posted.

Something inside n64 game cartridge


There could be many things making that noise, my fellow N64 Gamer :)
It could be a few loose pieces of plastic that have broken off over the years, or it could be the chipset itself, which would be the reason why it's not working. By a special screwdriver off the internet (not more that 10 bucks) and open the cart to see what's making the noise.

As for the freezing up, if the chipset's moving around in there, it cold be freezing, if the chipset isn't moving, you could try cleaning the contacts on the bottom with a solution of alcohol and water.
