Question about HP Compaq nx6110 Notebook

1 Answer

CMOS? I am in a Sheriff's Office doing data/evidence recovery. I have before me a now working "Compaq Presario 1200" laptop. I Just want to GET TO the CMOS somehow, to see how it was last set. However, the "Del" key does nothing NOR does the "Pause/break" key. All I want to do is open the CMOS. Is it even an option on this model? Joey sykotaboy@gmail.com

    Well, the "F-10" Key worked PERFECT for letting me get into & Video tape the CMOS SETTINGS... But something Must still be wrong with this thing, cause now the only mystery left is why it ONLY loads WinXP (me) in Safe mode AND takes well OVER 9 minutes "TO" load it even in just safe mode?

There are different keys that can get you into CMOS. On a compaq try the F2 or the F10. Usually, I try F2, F10, DEL, or F1.

    That could be any number of things....could be a bad hard drive (my suspicion) or a bad motherboard; hard to say unless I could do a full diagnostic on it.

Well, I haven't worked on a Compaq for a few years but they're one of the models that respond to having the CMOS battery removed.

Basically, remove battery, find location of CMOS battery (usually under memory cover or HDD cover) and disconnect or pull it out for 30 minutes and you should be back to factory defaults.

You should start tapping the F11 key right after you turn the laptop on. It should go into the recovery mode, and you can select either a windows recovery (saving your data) or a full destructive recovery. If you feel you have picked up a virus, the destructive recovery is best, as this will put the laptop back to like new, out of the box condition.

Compaq Presario 1200


This means that the data inside the D drive is gone. If you had deleted the D drive data or had gotten rid of this partition then your outta luck in trying to restore your system back to factory settings (getting windows reloaded).

All is not lost if you are willing to pay HP/Compaq for their restore CD's this will get your laptop and running again. I paid a copy of these CD's 3yrs ago and cost me $45CDN to get them.

My laptop keeps rebooting most of the time, but sometimes it comes on right. compaq presario v6000. what can i do? also how do i open the laptop?


There would be certain reasons to rebooting ....first reason may be the virus..... so if u have any important data on the computer backup the data and restart the computer.....

when its coming up... ie., when you see compaq screen on the laptop keep tapping the key F11 to perform system recovery... it will go to recovery manager... click next and it would be asking for system restore... Click No and click next... then it will ask you to perform system Recovery.. Click Yes and click next... choose the option without backingup the data... and click next... ur work is done...

How do i Restore my Compaq Presario 1200 laptop to orginial store bought state?


You can restore your Laptop to Factory Setting by Tapping F11 at the startup which should bring the Recovery Screen. Follow the instructions to complete the Restore. If F11 does not work, you need to get Recovery CDs from HP.
