It is fine to leave it on 24/7 if you configure the power options so it can go into suspend or hibernate mode, then it will not overheat. Click on start>control panel and Power Options. You see some options to suspend/sleep after so many minutes or if you close the lid. You use that option if you are going away from it for a couple of hours. There is also an option to put it in Hibernate mode. This is the mode to put it in when you go to sleep at night. Both of these options will slow it down enough so it does not overheat. Some people use these options and keep it on 24/7, no problem.

I can't type on my compaq nx9010. (num lock led is on)


If you have a external keyboard available this would probably get you out of a jam so long as there are no other issues with the laptop. The computer keyboard will need to be replaced since it is locked down.

I have key board and mouse problems in hp compaq nx9010 , sometimes it wont type any thing and sometimes it types automatically.


Sounds like a bad keyboard, and keyboards are pretty easy to replace. Cheapest place to buy 'em is on eBay, and a new one runs about $15 delivered. That'd be your best bet.

This is a typical symptom of motherboard failure. Your laptop's motherboard will need to either be serviced or replaced.

Cooling fans compaq nx9010


well usually colling fans in laptops are always on. but i have encountered models that seem to temperature controlled, like the one my brother is using. as for the clearance if you can feel the heat of the laptop coming out from the keyboard, you'll need to atleast put some clearance underneath to properly disperse the heat.

Compaq nx9010 keyboard beeps when it starts up and also this key "l" is stuck it outputs llllllllllllllll even at log on


Ok what you need to do is pop off that key.
Get a small regular head screwdriver or flathead and put it under the key and pop the key up slowly.
See if anything is under it which is making the rubber gromet stick.
If so take some rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab and dip the cotton swap into the alcohol and then clean it with the swab.
Put the key back on.
You will see how it goes when you pop it off the first time.
This should take care of your issue.
If not don't hesitate to request further instructions.

HP Compaq nx9010 CD drive replacement


You are correct.
The screws for the dvd drive is under the keyboard.
there should be 2 tabs one above the f4 and the other above f12 take a regular head screw driver put it where those tabs are and gently pull down towards the touchpad and the keyboard should come up easily.
Now under that keyboard in the center you will see a opening and inside that opening you will see 1 philip head screw remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Right below where you removed that screw you will see another opening which has another philps head screw in it.
Remove that screw counter clockwise and the dvd rom should pull straight out with ease.
To put it back together just reverse the steps.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to ask.

HPCompaq nx9010 power switch broken


you should still be able to boot the machine even if the on/off button is missing, try poke the flat end of a pencil down the hole and apply just a little pressure and pull the pencil out and the laptop should boot, to reapir this you need to remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard, this can be hard to do because of how they are clipped together, you should not have to remove anything else because this will reveal where the "power on" board is, all you need to do is replace the button or the panel, you may even find the the original button
hope this helps 
regards
