Compaq Evo N410c- Will not start up

Evo suddenly ceased to start. When connecting the power (with batts or w/o), after a few second the start up lights come on, but nothing else happens. When you pressthe power button, there will be a minute click (almost pop), the lights go out, and after a few seconds, it will do the same. The HD is fine. Tried it in another machine and it checks out. Put a HD in the Evo... same symptoms. Have tried three power supplies, so not there. Ideas? All seem intact on the inside as far as connections. No known drops or bumps. This happened before, and after checking the HD and connections, it started up fine, but suddenly, the failure came back.

Re: Compaq Evo N410c- Will not start up

The only thing you can do is to check to see if the installed memory is making contact. To do that, open up the access panel, unclip the memory and then reinstall it. If that doesn't fix it, you're into a trip to the shop.

How can I change boot sequence in Compaq Evo N410c?

You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!

Laptop will not boot

ok, take the battery out and leave it unplugged for a few hours.  Only plug the ac adapter in after.  Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.  Does it still do it?  If it does work, then chances are your mobo has bit the dust or you have knocked loose an internal charging part.

Compaq evo N410c sound and video play too fast

I bought a used Compaq evo N410c and had the same problem.  I went to HP's website and downloaded the ADI Soundmax Audio Drivers and both video/sound are working fine.  The drivers installed without any problems, I was not prompted to insert any disks.  nicole79, sounds like you may have downloaded the wrong drivers.
