Hit F8 while it is booting up and take it into SAFE MODE if at all possible. From there run an error check.

Go to My Computer - right click on C: -- go to properties - then select Tools - error check. Make sure you check the two boxes to have windoews fix the errors as they are found. The error check should run after you restart your computer.

if it still doesn't load.. reboot while presssing F8 and take it into safe mode and use SYSTEM RESTORE to restore computer to earlier date.

Go to:
START - ACCESSORIES - SYSTEM TOOLS -- SYSTEM RESTORE. and then select a date computer was working ok.

Non system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready...when I run my windows xp disk it then tells me that they cant find my hard drive. Where would the hard drive be on a Compaq Evo N600c?...


Yes. Your laptop is far worth fixing. If you can do it yourself, open the back cover where your hard drive exists to make sure it did not get out of position (Probably due to shock during travel)

Then using a windows xp installation cd, run the laptop from the cd and when the setup screen reaches the point of "pressing enter to continue installation, or "C" for a recovery, pre C to go to the DOS prompt screen. On that screen, use the command >CHKDSK and press enter..

It should detect to disk and fix it for you. If it wont detect the disk, then probably you damaged it and need to replace it. You will have to go to a store to purchase one.

Virus problem


First off, the Toshiba software will not work at all. You can either find a copy of HP/Compaq XP or Vista software, or you can load a retail version of either. You can order the HP/Compaq versions for about $15 us delivered, and it will come with a disk of device drivers. A retail version will probably cost you 100 bucks us, and you will have to download the device drivers from www.hp.com

EVO N600c starts up fine but when when its time to sign in nothing on screen just blank


Both of you, what did you do before the restart? If you changed anything while in Winblows it seems likely it is a software related issue. If you didn't, then a hardware issue is possible, in which case I'd start by unplugging the non-essential peripherals and restart. If that doesn't work, also try a different power supply and disconnect the battery. Sometimes a bad peripheral can cause the boot up sequence to hang. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe a weak psu can undersupply power to the harddrive causing the operating system to fail to boot. But, you probably have tried these ideas so they may not be of much help. Oh well, good luck!
