Question about Compaq Evo N600c Notebook

1 Answer

Powered down and won't power up.

My boss's Evo Notebook powered down in the middle of sending an email. He has been unable to power it back up. The power light (for battery) does light up red, but nothing happens when you push the power button. He has 1 document on the harddrive that he needs. Do you have a workaround or help for this? If we pop the battery out the power cord does not work directly as well. Thank you for any help you can give us.

Compaq notebook evo n1020v won't power up. Battery charger is brand new.

Remove the main battery, now try power on, if okay the battery needs to be replaced. Sub out ram one at a time to see if you can start it.

When I turn on my BOSS RC-20XL Loop Station the reverse, tap tempo, write, exit and one shot phase start to blink rapidly and I cannot get them back to normal. Therefore, I am unable to use my loop...

Hi. I had the same problem and fixed it by clearing all the phrases. An explanation of how to do this is below (written by someone else, not me) But, expect your guide beat to now sound like a fuzz instead of a drum. This really sucks and there is apparantly no fix for the guide sound except to send it back to Boss. Good luck.

1. Start by selecting Phrase 1.

(if the 'REVERSE' or 'AUTO START' are lit press them off.)

2. Select 'INST & MIC' by pressing 'MODE'

3. Hold down 'EXIT' and 'AUTO START' together - at the same time, this should light up the green LED for 'LOOP PHASE'

4. Hold down 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together
then hold 'WRITE' on its own
then 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together if you were clearing a phrase.

they should light up in red and flash, if not try a combo of section 4.

5. Repeat on all Phrases 1 - 11.

Problems with HP Compaq Evo n610c PC Notebook - keys m, v, spacebar not responding when press.

Most likely there's some grit or dust inside the keyboard key contacts.

Begin by placing the powered down PC on a side, blowing compressed air from above (so that it enters between the keys laterally), top to bottom, with a compressed air bottle. Check all keys.

There are also specialized notebook keyboard cleaning kits.

If it didn't work, you may try prying the keys open - "peel" the keys from below, pulling gently, careful not to break the tiny plastic studs - and exposing the contacts pit in the middle. Blow air inside to clear the contacts.

If not even that helps, you may need a replacement keyboard - you'll find cheap ones on eBay, and elsewhere.

Notebook is not powering up

You have a fairly common failure of teh power plug on the motherboard. You can get a replacement for less than $100and have it installed locally for about the same price if you are not comfortable doing it yourself.

Motherboards are available here:

Bios menu

Most Compaq units use the F10 key to enter the BIOS shut off your notebook if it is in hibernation though you may have to shut it down fully by pressing on the stand by power button and pulling at the power notch they should be located at both sides near the hinges of the screen if this does not work remove batteries this will surely bring your notebook to shut down. replace batteries then press power then press the F10 as soon as the Compaq logo comes out. Hope this works some Compaq models nee to be realy shut down before the F10 could be accessed
