Question about HP Smart Buy Notebook

2 Answers

HP Compaq 6710b is hanging up in the boot up.

HP Compaq 6710b starts the boot up and the Windows XP logo appears but hangs up for several minutes. Error message pops up and says that some unknown hardware or software problem has occured and suggests rebooting with last known working option. I reboot with that option (and others now) but it does the same thing. I looked for a reset button but no luck...I don't see an obvious button on the bottom or back. Any suggestions?

    Check you Memory Modules pull one at a time and see it boots now, I think may be one of your memory sticks became loose or is bad, Sorry about the safemode I see you already did that, Try the memory mods see if that does it, Hey also make sure you can here the Hd spinning too. I have had a bad hd and it would do the same thing, I sure hope thats not the problem but if it is you can get another for pretty cheap compared to a new unit.

Upgrade from USB 1.0 to USB 2.0 on a HP 6710b laptop with XP


I'm not convinced on this error, because I used to get the same even though I was 100% sure they were USB 2. Unless the OS or hardware manufacturer were lying.
If this matches your specs, your good. I did see several that differ, but this one is HP.

I have HP Compaq 6710b, Some days it got restarted and then never came through in OS (XP). After POST the screen got blank and nothing happened. I reinstalled my OS by using Repairing Options. Now when...


The hard disk got damaged and it's dying - the boot take longer because the boot sector was damaged and it had to be relocated.
Create a reinstall disk with the utility HP has installed in the laptop, buy a new hard disk and install it and then reinstall Windows with the disk you created.

Remove the hard drive and see if you get the same symptom. It should boot, then go into the BIOS and see if it recognizes the RAMs. Re-seat the RAMs if it doesn't boot - if you have two circuit boards - try one at a time. The motherboard can also be your problem.

My HP compaq nx6110 windows xp sp3 hangs at boot


Take a look at this post that deals with a HP nx6110 laptop with random freeze ups. If the described symptoms also happen on your laptop. If you do experience random freezeups or slow DVD you're facing the same FSB chip problem. All peripherals, USB ports included, are connected on the Front Side Bus. Poor soldering causes intermittent contact which in turn results in hanging, slow, or totally non bootable (stuck at HP logo) laptop. Hope this helps.

My nx9600 wont boot up and gives me an error message.


Just to clarify: this is PART "Clarification Request" and PART "Solution" --

Sorry, but more information is needed before your question can be properly addressed. Please post back the exact error message it gives you, and WHEN the error message appears (for example: is it after you see the windows logo? before windows logo appears, but after the BIOS info appears? - where the error occurs in the boot process is very important to determine how to troubleshoot the issue).

You can always write down the exact error message, and do a search on the manufacturer's website, the Microsoft website (or website for whatever OS you may have installed if other than Windows), and most of all, Google - If searching Google, to narrow results to be more relevant, you can include your model number/mfg info in the search string then the error message (or error message #, if one applies).

Post back more info on your issue and error msg, and I will be glad to try and assist you further. Best of luck to you!
