Ur usb card will slot into ur pcmcia port which is next to ur infrared(look at ur esc button and its around there on side) youll see that it looks smooth but there is a button you press in to release port cover.remove the sleeve and insert card.system should recognise device and install it for u.

There should be a PCMCIA port on the left side under the keyboard. You may have to eject the plastic spacer from the slot. the eject button is to the left of the slot.

I've got a Compaq nc4000 that doesn't start. when I push the power button I can hear the fan start spinning and the leds flashing for less than a second, after that it switchs off and on again, forever. To...

It's entirely possible that the notebook is now a brick, ( the simplest way to say it wont boot again) when updating the bios it would only be done for a reason like a problem, but if there is no problem my advice would be don't do it. Have you tried contacting HP/Compaq support to see if it can be reset as we were able to reset the bios on most Acer units when i worked there (in the UK)

Compaq nc 4000, after initial hp screen, screen

old dog compaq (no OS stated, XP?) even windows 2000(omg)
nc 4000, circa 2003 it will not ever run with no ram. ever.
1 stick at a time is the test in bank 0
first off its what. a note book.
take out the battery and leave it out , they like to short.
so what does the screen do?
you did not say its 100% dead all time
no text ever
no HP logo , no Compaq logs.
dead 100% and fan runs? vents not blocked, in lint
seem the HP logo is there, so that means BIOS is alive.
logo yes...
HP logo comes out of BIOS, not the OS.
so do the BIOS hot keys work , that is next.
OS running if vastly more complex.
your service manual states hit F10 for bios. (esc, and F2 per manual)
Omg 2, it has floppy drive, wow, not seen one in a decade.

amazing HP still supports this old dog, not sure why. over 10 years.
what next the boot is next
I boot to a CD that has linux live on it, see system work perfectly?
sure. if it does that means the OS on your HDD is bad or
the HDD is dead.
so what next if true.,
my guess is support ends 2018 (xp last +10 = 18) my calcs.
get the software and manuals now while the clock does not time out. hint, hint
so what next the service manual has flow chart.
so it says, if floppy boots then the HDD will not.
that you need to test the HDD but shows no ways to do that.
FDISK it shows, (sad that)
you need to run hdd tests. we use knoppix boot to do that
if that passes we reload your OS. from scratch.
i build this or keep one handy at all times. (mines on a USB stick)

Sd card slot does not read sd card.

Pick up a usb sd card reader on ebay for about $1. Much cheaper than paying to have laptop looked at.

I have my nc 4000 reformat,but my wifi is not working


I am sure that you have installed the wireless drivers correctly after formatting the machine.

If not, you can download the wireless card drivers from HP's website & reinstall them.

This should fix it ..
