HP Compaq nc6320 Boot Disk

I have a HP Compaq nc6320 laptop and i've recently reformated my hard drive thinking that i have a boot disk, but unfortunatly that's not the case and boot disk is nowhere to be found. Is there any way around this problem? Perhaps someone knows of any boot disks that are available online and that's for HP? Is the boot disk the only way to install your OS back onto your laptop?

Boot sequence for compaq evo n800 laptop

You need a system disk first of all. Put the disk in the drive, turn the computer off then reboot. Watch the screen for which key it says to hit to change the boot sequence or boot order. Hit that key when it is shown. This is a one time solution that is only for the current boot process.

To make it permanent, boot the computer an notice what keys it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit that key when shown. You can change the boot sequence or boot order and make it a permanent change in the bios. The most common and best boot sequence is to have the CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. Just make sure no disk is in the cd drive when you boot it up or you will get a error saying no boot record or system disk found.

I have an hp compaq nc6320 laptop that i am trying to reboot and nothing seems to be working right, when i restart the computer it only makes it to the windows did not load properly screen and restarts...

1st of all you have to make sure your hard disk in enabled in system setup. maybe f2 when you boot. go into hard disks and see if your hard drive shows up. then boot priority and make sure your your hard drive has a check next to it because the check means its enabled. if not then it looks like you might have a bad hard drive. you can try to purchase a usb enclosure and install your hard drive inside,then take it to any 2.0 usb pc or laptop port and see if you can retrieve any important data then do a full format and install it back into your laptop and install windows again

My compaq presario c700 will not boot and it's saying that there is no bootable device, insert boot disk and press any key, however, i do not have a boot disk

Your Compaq did not detect the hard disk, that is why it is asking for a bootable device such as a boot floppy disk.
Check the BIOS configuration to see if the hard disk is detected, if not then re-seat the hard drive and boot up the Compaq again.
If it still does not boot up, then the hard disk is probably faulty.
To get the Compaq operating again, replace the faulty, install Windows operating system on the new hard drive, plus the Compaq's device drivers and your programs.

Presario 2200 won't boot up

your hard driver is broken or it can be your motherboard sata controller.

replace your hard drive and run a restore. you can get your restore cds from HP.
check if you have warranty left. then you can go to nearest hp reseller and get your motherboard or hard drive changed for free.

good luck

Hard Drive with password protected.

I had the same problem. This is how I reset my password on a compaq or hp nc6320.
1. unplug the power cord
2. unplug the battery
3. take two screws from the ram cover on the back of the laptop (see youtube for this step)
4. open the keyboard
5. unplug the cmos battery cable (very easy to do)
6. plug power cable and turn on the laptop
7. laptop would erase passwords.
8. put everything back together.

A pleasure to help.

Try to boot up pressing the F8 button, when the menu appears select the option "Windows in safe mode" if u can boot to windows. View our software installed.
If it is not software try, boot whit the windows installation disk enter to the setup and select the option repair, u will go to a DOS prompted window (all black whit white letters) must appear "c:\"
used the command "chkdsk /f /r" let it run he will try to find any problem in the disk.
