I think you've not installed the modem driver. Go to device manager, check for modems and find if modem is displaying and its driver is installed.

If not install the modem driver, then it'll start recognizing the modem.

Hope it worked for you. Thanks for using Fixya. All the best.

How to reformat my nc6000 using my os cd?

The NC6000 sometimes has trouble booting to anything other than the primary hard drive once a valid OS has been installed. If you need to reinstall by booting it USB or to a CD/DVD; this works for me as a last resort. (Especially USB which it officially isn't supposed to be able to do.)

Insert the bootable media. Shut the laptop down. Remove the hard drive - but leave it disconnected in the bay. Start the machine, let it detect the bootable device, then hot-plug the hard drive. There is some timing involved, but it works.

I loaded several NC6000 machines running Windows 2000 to Linux and XP this way.

I can't get wifi on my HP Compaq nc6000

Typically, this means your wifi card is toast, however there are a few things we can try first. Is the light turning on to show that you Wifi connection is on? If it isnt, then make sure whatever switch or knob is set correctly. If this doesnt work then you can reinstall the drivers, but since it isn't even showing up then I doubt this will work. Even if the drivers are not installed, usually windows will at least see there is something there.

Cannot reinstall Windows on my Hp Compaq nc6000

I know I just had the same problem today...when getting into the bios...try using a "multi-bay" boot and have the cd booted first then the hd...That's the only way mine worked to "trick" the system to boot from the took a few times of stalling after that but with frustration and regathering with patience, it finally might have problems with the devices not being recognized after it does load unless you have an easy driver set to install from cd...otherwise you might have to manually install them to make them operate correctly. *hint: using the device manager to see any '?s' and reinstall drivers helped me*

HP nc6000 windows hangs up during installation

Did you check the memory? Sounds like the memory has went bad. Is it noticing all of the memory? Even if it is noticed it could still be going bad or the slot could be going bad. I have seen this happen. Are you positive that the hard drive is not bad. Did you run any test on the hard drive?
