Re: EVO n610c screen goes off

Hard Rock,

This issue is caused by an over sensitive LCD cover switch. The way this switch works is as follows.There are small slots in the top cover that the LCD latches into when closed. The slot on the left side has a brass clip, which acts as a lever to active the cover closed switch on the system board. The LCD latch pushes down on this lever to turn off the LCD. On your unit this clip has been bent to the point where any pressure near that slot actives the cover closed switch. The fix is to remove the top cover of the laptop and carefully bend this clip. Then reassemble the laptop to test it. It may not work on the first attempt. Its tricky.

Compaq Evo N610C Faint Screen

Usually it's the inverter. Sometimes it's the backlight / lcd, and occasionally it's the lcd cable and or video card.

Easiest thing to do is order a replacement inverter from ebay. They're cheap and then swap it. You just need to remove the outside lcd bezel, it's just four or five screws and you're in business.

Can I install 1gb of ram on a compaq evo n610c

Yes, Memory Upgrade for Compaq Evo N610C, the Compaq Evo N610C takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs to a max of 1gig - and two 512 would be perfect.

The memory modules in a Compaq Evo N610C are not located where you expect them to be.
Here's how to do it.
Open the notebook, and place your fingers on the keyboard as if you were going to type. There is a panel directly beneath your left palm, just below the Ctrl and Alt keys. The panel is hooked into the front of the frame closest to you. Using a thin flathead screwdriver or knife blade, apply a bit of pressure on the panel so that you're pushing it towards the LCD while prying it up. The panel will come right off and you'll have direct access to the memory modules.
