Take out the battery and do a power drain.
Restart the notebook and try to go to BIOS. If you are able to access the BIOS, do a BIOS default by pressing F5 key and then save by tapping F10 key. DISCONNECT ALL THE EXTRA PERPHERALS CONNECTED TO THE PC. Still wont work, send it for a repair.
If unable to go to BIOS, turn off the notebook and turn it upside down, you will see a lid wich has round disc like symbols, open it and take out the HDD and put it back in, close the lid. Then open a lid which has a rectangular structure and then reseat the RAM, close the lid after the reseat. Restart the notebook, if not then you need to send it for repair.

Hp notebook won’t boot . Now when it boots it say no operation Help

NO PC stated just HP.
NO OS stated, but
All PC boot in SERIAL order. until if windows, windows loads.
so how far it gets into that process, is key the cause when it fails.
First I must assume the screen works, is this desktop or laptop(notebook).
if the PC is not older that 10 years old the HP RTC coin cell my be good. so you power on, and the BIOS message happens
and you hit the key "hit ESC to enter HP setup" as seen every day you owned this PC. you hit ESC (or what it says to do , F10,or>?)
and you get the bios screens.
Test 1 does it show the correct time and date. if not the coin cell is dead. RTC means real time clock, . and has battery.
test 2, do you get to Windows login screen, next?
or are you stopped by the painful BIOS PASSWORD screen.
Ill stop here. as I cant see your screen , its progress nor all errors on the screen.

I have hp compaq 6730s before its got xp windows now the windows is corrupted now when I instal xp windows the system doesn't boot with external cd/dvd rom since the its own dvd rom doesn't work properly...

2008 PC from HP(old compaq name)
RECOVERY this PC ,per the book. (Ive done it)
this PC has a working F11 key if the HDD not bad, not changed out or the F11 partitions not damaged,
Power on hit F11 per the service manual. page 141

CD boot fails
to boot to CD you must hit a key, called hit any key
to boot CD (aka. offically El Torito spec, wiki that and learn this)
If you dont hit (I use the huge space bar so easy to reach)
then no CD boots ever. by DESIGN. on new PCs that is true
and now you have to turn off SAFE BOOT too.
so those rules are first.
some PC, even make me hit (HP) the space bar to boot USB sticks this too is a fact. so do that.

my guess F11 is dead so you used discs, unstated disks , no HP disks (RIGHT>?)

XP the dead OS, this means adding things, , to the PC.
will fail. XP plug and play is dead, for vast things now for 3 long years, since MS ended this support. why not upgrade XP
to W7?

Old PCs do not like to boot , to external drives, its modern IDEA that (2008 is not too old,but IDK , if yours has it)
If you did boot to CD , inside or outside
XP (from MS ,not HP) will ask you to find drivers, and tell you to hit F6 and insert a floppy, tell me how you can get past here?
you cant, using NON HP install medial
XP is 2001 disks, 16 years old laying about. from MS
and guess what it cant see your HDD. due to no SATA drivers.
so the path you are on is full of pitfalls. see?

a modern feature in BIOS,its 100% a features of BIOS to boot any USB or External drive, (but eSATA might boot , not you no esata)
you posted with no mention of what external drive you have.
USB , esata, or what? Im guessing USB cable external drives.
the External drive needs a power pack to run right i most cases.
in bios, go to ALL screens, power on hammer F10
Setup bios is F10, go to all screens and turn on all USB features.
then change boot order to.
CD (hit space bar to boot CDs or DVD)
USB (hit space bar to boot USB devices (any key = space bar)
then if all that above shows up F9 can be used to override above.

F9 only works if and only if.
1: bios supports it,! (IDK)
2: bios, has all USB features turned on, in other pages in BIOS.
including USB boot , turned on, if seen there. it must be on.
3: F9 only changes boot order this time, it does not enable features, that do not exist. ever.
why in the world not get a good CD/DRIVE. its like $10 used on ebay, pocket change, no?
or install with USB sticks?

there is legacy USB setting in BIOS, turn that on.
I can not teach you BIOS. (ive seen them all, so know this.)
but not yours, HP chances them like the weather, like the changing of the wind, directions. makers of BIOS changed 4 times!
and upgrades on BIOS changed on some HP PC, 10 times. or more. so I know NOTHING here, nor will most others due to that FACT. (unless theirs, is same as yours exactly)
only you can can explore BIOS, page by page and see what is there.
Test 1. (all techs have this in there KIT)
boot from USB stick, NOT external DVD drive)
if this fails doing DVD external boots is not possible.
find say any ISO for Unbuntu 17 linux, and burn the USB stick
using rufus. the boot the stick (fail now)?????????

that is the test for USB boot if that fails the PC is too old
and only fixing your bad DVD drive is the only cure.
Do not run XP with out SP3, once you have it running
XP has 700 exploits, and is a virus magnet.
never use XP is the best answer, but you you are not there yet.
so only BIOS matters now, that and only that NOW>
if the USB test 1 above works, I would.
id buy W7 from
the burn a stick
then load w7 , now it has future.

this PC is supported by HP in W7
here is the proof here

never run XP or VISTA today, 2017, they are now officially dead.

Learn that booting is a function of BIOS not windows.
windows is a goal and is only startup files to load windows.
booting happens at the lowest levels ,in BIOS.
BIOS has code in my newer PC to boot to any USB device.
but not external drives.

tricks for compaq old
6730b the CD is called,
'Notebook Upgrade Bay'
(odd name that)
but I have a SDD in mine so not so odd !
trick 2, is some compaq change sata to IDE or the CD will not boot. (sad no?)_
BTW my HP laptop can boot to both bays, HDD and upgrade bay
both bays in mine are SDD. one is w10 other is Ununtu 17.
booting to external drives are the most difficult tasks of all
some do , some dont.
but I always start with a stick first. test that , for booting
then go wild with external drives. (booting )

this is all for now, we can peel the onion as deep as you want, ask.

a1514s are relics now, called LEGACY by HP

XP is dead, now, MS and HP do not support, XP and is a virus magnet.
learn that old HP did not HAVE the magic auto switch in bios back in the dark ages.
you must go in to BIOS and flip the switch there.
1 binary bit.
the oldest made A1500 is now 17 years old we scrap these
or sell them to N.Korea so his stinking nukee/ABCM controls fail.
old old old box
in bios, hit F10 go in to bios;
and turn off the local GPU chip
then with the card inserted, boot the pc and it can work
if not, try all Xpress slots there.
deep in the parts surfer shows
that is your mobo type.
hp has only these pages on it, using deep searches at HP old archive .

so is only 1 X16 slot there.
there is no service manuals free
no bios manuals, i can find, zero.
so you get to do like all techs do , is look in the bios
and find it and flip the bit,(onboard vGA/GPU OFF)
and if there,set search order, GPU.
to slot /onboard.
that is all on relic mobos

it will not make a gaming system, at all,
its too weak if that is the unstated goal.

I turned on my modem, an all that is displayed on my monitor is the blue hp screen. In the botton left hand corner it says <F10=Setup> and <Esc = Boot Menu> and in the right bottom corner, it...

what modem, who's and where, ?
or is modem , monitor?
which blue HP screen there are many,
you left out what it says...
i can not watch you boot, and what is displayed, is key to the cause.

NO OS stated, is this XP?
when you boot, it always prompts in text ,hit ESC key to enter setup"
this is the BIOS hot key prompt that some times shows
a cute small HP icon this too is BIOS created.
then the PC boots and goes to OS, there many OS offered
Windows is XP is one? is it?
or Vista.,w7,/8/10 or PS/2 or linux. HP has many offered OS.
as do Refurb companies endless.

if windows?, the windows log in screen is next.
so my guess is the PC goes to BLUE screen that, before that.
stating (presenting)
startup file failed?
or , HP recover failed.?
or any of 50 other windows blue screens of *****.?
why not post a photo of the screen?
one screen is the XP BSOD , crash screen.
seen here.
one other blue screen is "windows is doing updates" so let it??

one modern HP W10 screen 1 of 50

this is most times below a bad video card driver used on PC.
not matching card to OS. and bam crash.

you are getting blue screen because of compatibility issue. go into bios (press f2 on start up) and change from sata mode to ahci compatibility mode 'probably in the advanced section). you should then be able to boot from xp cd. remember to get your xp drivers from the hp website.

OS login screens are dead, that is booting OS,
BIOS kinda is booted, the processor executes BIOS directly, hard coded in the processors. since 1981.

that is correct bios is first.
for 10 long years, this pc booted and showed you
Hit Esc (or F10) to enter SETUP (hp name for BIOS is silly)
BIOS IS ROM , BOIS WORKS with the HDD and CD drive removed
first lets read your service manual.
see link at end.
Page 101 covers this and tells you to hit F10 at power on,
hammer it, BIOS screens must POP
the hit F1 see the huge info page there, all do that.
  1. main battery is bad and shorted.
  2. or Coin cell dead as all do 3 to 7 years old, like this one is.
  3. the CCLF lamps or its inverter is dead.
test 1, power on , hammper F10
while shinnging flashlight on the screen
see data now?
yes, bad CCFL lamps/inverter (hp calls it CCFT) search the doc below for CCFT and see it. cold cathode....
no, try the VGA jack to any monitor. got data now>?
data means (words or graphics of any kind)

see ccfl here (aka dead back lamps)

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)

My XP will not boot when my Hitachi 1TB External USB 2.0 drive is connected. It gets as far as showing the Pentium screen and stalls.

Its probably trying to boot from your external drive.

Go into your bios and reset your boot setting to HDD0 as your first boot device, Disk drive 0 second and floppy third, unless you want to boot from an external drive. That being the case select an appropriate order.

If the bios shows your external HDD as HDD0, then you have to work out which is the drive carrying the operating system and set that to your first boot device.

To get into the bios, watch the boot screen for a key to hit to enter setup, normally its the "DEL" key.
