Question about Compaq NX6110 TFT XGA Notebook

Computer freezes...but not in the normal manner

I have a HP Compaq nx6110 that is about three years old. It has been working fine until recently, it started freezing. But not in the sense normal sense: that is program failure or something which would make the computer work to hard and the fan would run really know that kind of stuff. Mine however doesn't show any of those symptoms. Basically it will randomly free and all programs will stop working, the performance light will not blink or anything. But if press really hard on the left side of the touch pad and hold it it works fine.

The intel chip that is under the touch pad is the culprit. If you open the laptop by removing the keyboard, you will notice the chip just under the cover. i have tried putting pressure on it with an eraser and got some results. Mackay Rigava

I have a HP Compaq model NX 6110 laptop,which was working well until last week when it started to freeze but when you press on it especially above the touch pad it works,that trend continued until last...

That sounds like you have a bad connection in that vacinity.
Removing the case and resetting the contacts may fix it but it could be a crack on the motherboard.
Good luck.

My HP compaq nx6110 windows xp sp3 hangs at boot

Take a look at this post that deals with a HP nx6110 laptop with random freeze ups. If the described symptoms also happen on your laptop. If you do experience random freezeups or slow DVD you're facing the same FSB chip problem. All peripherals, USB ports included, are connected on the Front Side Bus. Poor soldering causes intermittent contact which in turn results in hanging, slow, or totally non bootable (stuck at HP logo) laptop. Hope this helps.

Hp 6220's freeze up until a little pressure is applied..

Is your hard drive installed properly? It may be that the connection pins are not making good contact.

Remove the hard drive and reinstall it. It may solve the problem.

It might possibly be the motherboard circuitry, however, if it were I would imagine that the computer would show an error message on boot-up during POST.

Were the computers dropped or somehow bumped hard?

Power On password bypass

Different names, but it is the same thing. I'm not sure if it is possible to flash the bios without that password. I'll look into it. Have you tried contacting Compaq? The guys at the US online support helped me with a discontinued 8 year old model... and I live in Europe

The battery on this model tends to last between 2 to 4 hrs dependant on use. Does yours only work uoto about 2 hrs or does it sometimes last longer? If the battery is more tham 5 years old it MAY be worth changing.
