First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

SOURCE: laptop boots to the F10 and F12

this is as if you haven't got an installed operating system and requires it to be installed, but you have to enable your cdrom as the first boot device. Put your O.S disc in and reboot; then press enter to boot up from disc.

I am Ravichandran, using HP Compaq nx6100 Model Laptop. My laptop did't boot and not even entering into Bios. Only HP Invent Embalam will appear and press F10 Rom Setup. If I press F10, F9, F1 there is...


If you are unable to "F-10" at power up, try 1}. unplug your laptop from AC adapter.
2}. press and hold power button until the computer powers up and powers off.
3} remove battery.
4). press and hold power button 10 seconds then release, replace battery.
5}. power up and press F10

If you are still unable to access BIOS you will need to obtain a system restore disk from HP

I have hp nc6220, if often hangs and is always unpredictable, but when i press its touchpad from downward and keep it pressed it works, when i release that it hangs again


I had this problem (hanging on the screen with F10 = ROM based setup) for a while on my HP nc6220 laptop. Was taking several attempts to boot. Replaced the hard drive. Ran virus and malware detection, all clean. Stumbled on to the posting where someone wrote about applying pressure by the touch pad seemed to help. It did. Then the problem gradually got worse. Thought maybe there was something loose. Downloaded the disassembly procedure from hp.com. I found the 2 ground contacts under the touch pad had oxidation on them. Cleaned them with a pencil eraser. Reassembled the laptop and have not hung once. Everything runs faster as well. This is not for the novice, but someone with a little experience should be able to get through the process. Hope this helps someone.

My compaq laptop freezes after 30 minutes


It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. Have you expierenced that problem also? There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!
