    My guess is this
    first of all it has the smart Cover LOCK option in BIOS, for sure
    but is wired wrong, or the sparts missing to same.
    the cure is TURN IT OFF IN BIOS.http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01...

    per the manual ,


    that fancy feature is to block usage of the PC if some bad guy opens the side of PC
    breaching said lock
    it's a feature of business system HPE
    not cheap home pc.

that means your BIOS has this feature/option, mine does not.
and when you see that error it tells you , your BIOS has the lock feature, and in your BIOS you can turn it off. FOR SURE.

the free service manual covers this. lost that?
RTM read the manual, it's free 100% to read.

    max this has no relation ship to any OS.
    it's pure BIOS code and lock option.
    he said will not boot.
    it would do that with LINUX on board. a fact.
    this lock is an optional feature, on all these busines HPE Desktops.
    its a normal feature, read the service manaul. it tells you how to use it.
    for sure.

SOURCE: My HP XW4600 does not power up to boot though the

First, be sure the monitor is connected, and powered. Sounds stupid, but I have had the problem.
Next, When you start it, do you hear one beep while the boot process is going on?. If no, the problem sounds like the motherboard. Are you comfortable taking the side off? We will be looking for any lit leds.

This being my first time, I am not sure of the protocol, But, give me
a little slack. I wil look in my service files for information on that
model.

Nothing to do with your problem, but you need to increase the memory to at at least 2Gb if you are running XP.

Let know what more info you can give me. Any thing abnormal helps.

SOURCE: i have hp workstation xw4100 changed battery then

If as I suspect you changed the CMOS battery, then you will have to set up the system BIOS again to the "Default" configuration. You will have to initialize the Hard Drive, DVD, RAM, Boot Up sequence, all again. Do this and all should be OK. You access the CMOS usually by pressing DEL, or F10, at boot time. Check your manual for exact key.

I've got a dc7800 Small Form Factor system. After less than a second, a blue window"smart card authentication" and below that, "smart card reader not present".


"System Options Not Set" normally means that the battery that maintains those options has gone dead. That's usually a 2025 coin cell on the motherboard.
I would replace that first thing, then set the BIOS options. Usually, there's another message that comes up, "Press F1 to continue, F10 for setup". F1 will let you system boot, most likely, but doesn't set the options. F10 (or whatever it says) will get you to where you can set the options.

Smart card reader not present


It's probably connected on one of internal USB branches. Try to plug it in another, if not work... there must be a device hardware error.

SMART CARD AUTHENTICATION no smart card reader found


I'm only guessing here, but did you set it up for Smart Card Authentication? If so I guess if the card reader hardware fails then so does Authentication unless replaced. Anyway I'm keen to hear the perfect solution for your Laptop problem.

What type cable do I need to connect the monitor to a hp xw4600 computer?


An out of the box HP xw4600 has a NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 video card which uses a DVI cable. You have to make sure your monitor supports DVI. A WHITE connector is for DVI while a BLUE connector is for VGA. Some monitors have both while many older models only support VGA.

Hello, my hp compaq nc6220 gives insert smart card into reader


Pl switch the machine off and put 2-3 pounds of pressure with your palm on the keyboard closer to the spacebar.. this will fix it..
it is caused by the weakening of the adhesive of the wires below the keyboard.
Long term option - get the keyboard opened by the an professional and cleaned properly..and fixed back neatly...
