Being an Hp, I would suspect the GPU. Heat damage will make the CPU work very hard and it in turn will overheat. Unless the heatsink compound has lost its usefulness. Between the CPU and the heat sink.

You bios versions start at f.03,f.04,f.05, f.07, f.08,,,

The date and version that you posted does not match and bios version for your model.

The only reason you update a bios is if it falls under the problems
listed for the new bios to correct.

Say your lap came with f.05, the only reason you would update to f.07 is because you had a graphic error,that the new update fixed.


The link below is the page for your drivers, if you look at bios,it shows the newest,if you click on version,you will see all the ones
that where made.

You should double check to make sure that you have the right bios version.

Hi,
The sensitivity of the touchpad maybe too high, this is a common problem and can be easily sorted.
Go into the control panel and select mouse, there you can set the sensitivity of the pad.

See if that helps any!!!


Good luck.

They are a problem when they overheat. No warning just off. Try cleaning the fan and radiator. You will have a fighting chance then.

Where dos jumper located on compaq 6910p and how can i remove bios password on 6910p


Most "laptop" computer do *NOT* have a jumper that can be used to bypass a BIOS password.
This is DELIBERATELY done, so that a thief in possession of your laptop cannot bypass your password, and thus cannot use your stolen laptop.

Find your original bill-of-sale, to prove ownership, and telephone HP/Compaq, and ask for Technical Supoprt in resetting the BIOS password.

My sister has a two-plus-year-old MT6840 that just had the battery replaced. However, both before that issue and since she has had trouble with her display. The computer will load as though it is starting...


The easiest way to narrow down the problem would be to boot the computer with a copy of Ubuntu.

You can either create a boot cd or convert a flash drive into a bootable drive. The flash drive boots much much quicker so I definitely recommend you following the creation method for that on Ubuntu's download page. If you don't have a flash drive, don't worry, the boot cd will still work ;)

One thing to note is your computer's boot order. Usually pressing F12 on a Gateway will bring up a temporary menu so you can select your copy of Ubuntu. If not enter the BIOS setup menu and change your boot order.

Once the Ubuntu launch screen comes up just choose TRY UBUNTU this will create a live session.

If Ubuntu works without any hitches then it's likely a Windows software issue OR a hardware issue.

You can run a trail version of HDD REGENERATOR to physically scan the hard drive exactly like Ubuntu, LIVE.

If it comes back clean then YES, it's a windows software issue. Which entails more testing and button pushing.

Try the above and let me know how everything turns out.

HP Compaq 6910p New hard drive installed, XP os canot see the hard drive, asking for driver. ? where can i get it and how do i install it. Yours Steve


Method 1 :  Go to BIOS and set anything with SATA disable (usually find uns=der advance setting in IDE configuration setting).
Save the setting.

Windows Xp will detect your hard drive now.

Method 2 : This days BIOS comes with only few thing to configure.if that's is the case.
Download SATA driver,here is the link

http://download.cnet.com/SATA-Driver-Intel-Ver-7-0-0-1020-zip/3000-2122_4-162224.html

you need one more software called "nlite" in order to integrate the SATA driver in Windows XP CD so that it recognize SATA drives.

Here is the link for nlite download

My laptop keeps going off or if does go on it keeps on freezing. Why is that?


It might be a bios issue. Try entering the bios and selecting 'Default Settings' It might be a power management setting has been changed by windows. It that doesn't work then it might be a system fan or board fault which will require further investigation

Ntldr is missing


seems your MBR is damage. but you can repair it if only you can boot in windows cd and entering in the recovery console.

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4.    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.    At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

FIXMBR  C:
FIXBOOT  C:
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTLDR  C:\
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTDETECT.COM  C:\
BOOTCFG  /rebuild


6.    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

no warranty...you use on your own risk :)
