    Can you get to Bios screen? Check to see if Hard drive is seen in Bios. Can you boot to windows using cd?

Hi,

The HDD light is not meant to be on solid, it comes on only when the hard drive is actually working. The situation you're describing is usually just a lockup in standby.

Although you're onthe right track with the battery, To reset the power, unplug the AC cord, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 seconds. Now put the battery back plug it in and turn it on. It may give you an error about not being able to resume, this is normal.

If this doesn't work get back to us with more info: does it beep when it turns on, how many times, longs/shorts.

Did you try plugging and external monitor into the laptop and rotating displays to see if your backlight is out?

Ok, giver a try and let us know.

Compaq nx7010 power light comes on but the system won't start. No display. Can hear CD Drive searching. No HD activity.


First confirm that it isn't just the video. Plug a external monitor in to the computer and verify it isn't just the video/screen.
  • Now that we know it isn't just the screen
Now we are going to reset the bios. and verify it isn't the battery.
  • Pull the main battery out and attempt to power with only the cord.
Still doesn't work?
  • Pull the bios battery (This requires opening the computer if you are comfortable with that)
  • remove the panel behind the keyboard covering the hinges. (may have to remove screws from the bottom first. It should snap out.
  • unscrew the keyboard 3-4 on the top and may be a few from teh bottom.
  • Lay the keyboard back without disconnecting.
  • The cmos battery should be under there. Remove and replace after about 10 minutes.
This is a generic blanket process for all laptops. Your battery may be in a different place.
  • If this doesn't cure what ails it, then take it to a repair office for a new motherboard.

HP nx7010 - Blank Screen - wont load.


This looks like it can't recognize the hard disk or it's empty - no OS. To check that it's not a hardware fault just boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://pclinuxos.com/
If the hard disk is there and with all the data apparently intact then most likely the MBR was corrupted, fix it.

Nx7010 does not start.


Hello dear, probably some BIOS values changed, causing u no displays. Try this key combination immediately after startup

esc - loads bios, but not in display
F9 - (hope its F9 in ur laptop) resets BIOS
F10 - saves BIOS to default values and exits
RESTART

Or else try removing CMOS battery, its right beneath the keyboard. (Just remove 1 screw) Remove and hold for 1 minute and then reinsert and turn up laptop on. Your PC should be fine.

Only shows compaq on screen


I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

Turn on Laptop gets to desktop with icons then screen goes blank


By "where I want to go", do you mean going on the internet? If all you are getting is a blank screen, then you have the "about:blank" virus. Go here, print out the instructions, and read them well. Then read them again and follow them closely. At one time I had it on a desktop system and the instructions worked just fine.
