I assume yo have WinXP. 

Go into control panel>Regional & Language... Change your location to whatever you want it to be.  Keyboard assigned symbols are supposed to change accordingly.  But the keyboard printing remains the same so you need an "overlay" for your country.

You can also customize it to some degree also.  Play around with it and have some fun.

If you are using any word processing files, try looking for symbols under "insert" and you will find the pound sterling symbol in there.

Can I upgrade my DV7-2173cl processor to one that supports virtualization (vt-x or vt-d). Processor is: 2.00 GHz Intel Centrino 2 Processor Technology featuring Intel Core2 Duo Processor P7350

Would be quite challenging. From cost perspective it may be good to get a new laptop rather than trying to upgrade. Also the n1000c is rather old and compaq or HP doesnt support it. So perhaps you can consider investing in a new laptop :)

How to get into the bios settings

Compaq Evo N1000C Notebook?

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F10 key.

If you hear beeps ignore them.
They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it.

The F10 key is supposed to be pressed when the Compaq logo comes up.
Problem is the window of opportunity to enter BIOS Setup, goes by

The above circumvents the problem, and gets you into BIOS Setup

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Now I have one of my own................why are you going into BIOS Setup?

And another one..............have you ever been in BIOS Setup?
Know how to navigate around, and how to Save Changes?

I do not have an Pound sterling key sign on my keyboard, make of Pc Compaq.

Usually the Pound Sterling key is Shift+3, provided that the computer is set to recognise the keyboard as a UK one. Control Panel->Regional Settings (in windows) is where you set the keyboard language.

Ugrading to a newer system with higher performance specifications

You can upgrade you memory to 2 x 512MB DDR PC2700 333MHz, and install pretty much any size 2.5" IDE hard drive you wish. Installing Vista will make this machine very very slow. Windows 7 would be better as it uses less resources. Ideally XP Pro would be better suited based on this boards specifications.

Can I upgrade 32 mb Video display of my compaq evo n1000c?

As the Video Card is integrated into the Motherboard for your Model, the only way to upgrade is to change the entire board with a larger integrated Video Card. I believe there is a board with a 64MB ATI Card available. Cost of this board replacement may be more than ugrading to a newer system with higher performance specifications. Check link for HP Parts available:

Key Board


I'm not familiar with this laptop but all I have worked on in the past have a series of tabs along the top of the keyboard, usually I can use a jewellers screw driver to gently ease one tab back at a time and then slip in something like a credit card to keep the tab back.

Once you have all of the tabs held back you should be able to lift the keyboard out.

Hope this helps

I cannot enable the wireless connection on the compaq Evo n1000c

For the built-in wireless on this model (EVO N1000C) the key combination to enable/disable wireless is Fn + F2. If pressing the Fn and F2 keys together does not enable the wireless, it may be disabled in the BIOS.

If you need to check this, here are the instructions to enter the BIOS:
Turn off the computer. Power it on and immediately start tapping the F10 key about once per second until you see the BIOS screen.
