The first thing is from how many days r u getting the blue screen and if it is from one or two days go to start>all programmes>accessories>system tools>system restore....restore ur system to an earlier date within a week when ur computer was working fine...

if this doesnt work all u need to do is to update and install all the latest drivers in computer and still the problem exist...the problem might be with the cd drive or also cause of the burning software alos...what also u can try is that disconnect the ac adaptor and also the battery and then without the battery and the power cord press and hold down the power button for one minute and then turn on the computer with the power cord and the battery it might help u out......or

That error message generally points to bad or conflicting drivers. Update all your hardware drivers (from the OEM web sites, not Windows Update). Also, for more info go to ...></a
Please check Event Viewer for additional information that might help determine the device or driver causing the problem. To do this, click Start>control panel>administrative tools>event viewer>Post any recent Application or System Error event IDs here, or check them at

Hey can anyone help me, my Compaq nc6000 won't connect to wireless networks it says something about a smart card.

Access the router by means of an ethernet cable and log into the router. Go into the wireless setting of the router and select WPA-AES as the security protocol and select a password. Then go into your wireless settings on the notebook and do the same.

Cannot reinstall Windows on my Hp Compaq nc6000

I know I just had the same problem today...when getting into the bios...try using a "multi-bay" boot and have the cd booted first then the hd...That's the only way mine worked to "trick" the system to boot from the took a few times of stalling after that but with frustration and regathering with patience, it finally might have problems with the devices not being recognized after it does load unless you have an easy driver set to install from cd...otherwise you might have to manually install them to make them operate correctly. *hint: using the device manager to see any '?s' and reinstall drivers helped me*

Sounds like your O/S is corrupt. Can you get to setup? Make sure your hard drive is in the correct boot order.
