    The ram looks ok when I removed it, but how do I really know? Other of my computers test the memory at boot but since this computer doesn't bootup at all I don't know that the memory or hard-drive isn't damaged.

    The lights do come on and the battery will charge and hold a charge. I have tried booting up with and without the battery but neither time did the computer boot up.

    Thanks for the help though.

    I live in Houston, Texas USA but I was hoping to discover the problem myself. I took out the added memory stick and tried to boot up using only the build in memory. That didn't work either.

    Thank you for your help though and any suggestions are helpful.

It is possibly the RAM it may have ceased. Look at it underneath held in by two screws. Take it out and examine it then put it back. The motherboard seems ok because you said the lights are lighting up. Sometimes the ram can stop even the bios and nothing can boot up.

    I was going to suggest that you try the installation disk to see if that would boot up but you also state that the bios wont start. Normally if the hard disk failed the bios would tell you so it cant be that. You may need to take it to have it tested by a technician. Its a pity you have not said in which country you live in that way I may have been able to get you help.

Can not find operating system in evo n115

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

Hi I,m looking for download new bios for a notebook compaq evo n115, as the ones are in are very old and my computer dosent work properly. do you know where can I download them? Thank you

Take a look at the following URL:

Scroll down and look for ROMpaq (System ROM update). It is worth noting that HP / Compaq do not show a newer version than 2002, so it may be that your BIOS version is the current one.

As always, exercise caution when flashing the BIOS on any computer, as a flash failure can cripple a system completely.

I have a Evo N115 Compaq computer laptop and computer will not come on. The green light comes on when you push the ''on'' button but that is all. What do I need to do?

I have the same problem. When I follow these steps the laptop finally starts.

1) Let the bottom of the laptop somewhere you can warm up it a bit. Be very careful about this. The laptop´s bottom is made of plastic !. In summer I leave the laptop upside down under the sun for about 15 minutes and it´s ok.

2) Plug and unplug the dc connector (not the one at the ac outlet), wait until the small green led lights and inmediatly after it happens, press the power button.

3) Repeat step 2 as many times as necessary.

4) Do not shutdown the laptop. Always choose ´suspend´.

Good luck !
