Its common problem with HP NX6110.
When u wist your computer gently or apply pressure on hard drive connector it should detect the drive again.

But to fix the problem you need to replace the motherboard or reflow chips in good computer or gsm shop.

Easier is to sell it on ebay and get new one from there.
PS! Dont forget to mention the problem when selling ;)

My compaq nx 6110 gives me a 1782 disk controller failure message and will not boot can anyone help?

A disk controller failure can occur because of a few things:

A.) IDE or SATA controller failure.
B.) Hard drive failure.

Since this is a laptop, your most inexpensive troubleshooting and fix for this would be to test another ATA 5 hard drive in the machine. If you can successfully re-install Windows on it, the ATA/IDE controller is most likely fine and the issue is just with your hard drive.

Hard drives are easily replaced... controllers are not and would require a new motherboard.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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.

It seems that the hard drive or the memory module is not seated properly and hence after pressing on the area below keyboard it gets released.
You can try following things.
Remove and reseat the Hard drive.
And remove and reseat the Memory.
Try to power on the laptop again.
If is getting hang again then you may need to do the HDD self test and memory test built into BIOS.

I got 256mb internal ram and i put 1gb external ram on my hp compaq nx6110 laptop and after few months my hard disk stops working. so now i want to buy a new hard disk so how many gb of hard disk i should...

I think you're confusing RAM (memory) with hard disk space (storage). Installing more RAM makes your computer run faster. More hard disk space gives you more room to store stuff. Which would you like to do?
