Re: compaq nx6110

You need to dig around on your machine and find the program the machine came with which controls power usage and adjust the PLUGGED IN versus BATTERY settings; they have gotten reset somehow. Check first in the system tray in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

Good luck...

I need administrator password for compaq nx6110

1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.

2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).

3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.

4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.

5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.

Low disk space Error. I have deleted everthing I can and still get thie message, all I want to do is restore it to the factory settings

Do a search on Google for the drivers for your HP Compaq nx6110 PC Notebook. Make sure you have a copy of the 25 digit serial number of your computer handy. Do not do the next few steps unless you have this number. You will need it to reinstall the software to your computer.

Once you have all the drivers (Audio, Video, etc.,) for your HP Compaq nx6110 PC Notebook, you will need an OEM Disk, with Windows XP, Vista or other Operating System on it. Insert the CD in your drive and restart your computer.

Follow the directions that will appear on your screen, as it turns on. Do not let it get past the part where a flashing underscore (upper left-hand screen) goes by, before pressing your space button. You may press any button, but the space bar works great too. You will be given a set of choices to choose from, wether you want to completely reinstall the Operating System, completely Formatting your hard drive, or whether you want to only fix errors. Follow the directions carefully and within 30 minutes to 3 hours, you will have successfully reinstalled the software to your computer.

Compaq nx6110 PC Laptops: When i turn it on the lights flashes then goes off...

Which light flashes? If it is the battery light then perhaps your battery is empty?
When plugged into your PSU does the power light turn on? If not your PSU may have broken or the plugs fuse may have blown.
Other potential causes could be your RAM, CPU or even your system board. Check the RAM is correctly seated, if two modules are installed try removing one.
Hope this helps,

Unknown hp power-on password

Did you do all these steps in order?

1) Remove the computer power pack battery. Remove the keyboard.
2) Remove the RTC battery. Wait 5 minutes. (I would wait longer, maybe 15 minutes.)
3) Reinstall the RTC battery. Reinstall the keyboard.
4) Plug the AC power into the computer. (DO NOT INSTALL THE POWER PACK BATTERY AT THIS POINT)
5) Turn on the computer.

This should reset the password and also all CMOS settings.

Won't tune on.

sounds like a motherboard problem if a using a different battery and power adapter did not fix it. Though, you may want to reseat the memory modules, or if available, swap them with known-good memory modules just to isolate that the problem is not memory related.

Power On password bypass

Different names, but it is the same thing. I'm not sure if it is possible to flash the bios without that password. I'll look into it. Have you tried contacting Compaq? The guys at the US online support helped me with a discontinued 8 year old model... and I live in Europe
