My hp compaq nc6220 is not able to boot to the OS. What could be done to resolve it?

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

-try t drain everything out of the computer first; remove the power adapter then remove the battery; after 1 minute try again; if problem persists run diagnostics
--while the computer is off, press and hld the "Fn" key then press the power button at the same time to start the test; note down error message then consult manufacturer for the code obtained. if no errors found it is a windows problem; you need to reinstall windows on the computer

Shutting down at setup blue screen

even thoough it isn't the original cd that came with the the lapop it should still install.

make sure you clean the lens of the dvd drive with a damp q-tip of water and then gently clean it with a dry q-tip. This will ensure that the laser of the drive is nice and clean and free of dust or lint.

Then make sure there is no smudges of dirt or dust of on either sides of the cd so that way there can't be no write errors due to this.

Now see if you can install windows xp. If you still can't install windows xp then its because the hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

HP 1000 mini-netbook bootmgr compressed--no cd/dvd hard drive--

Why all these clueless suggestions? I came here looking for help, but it appears I'll be solving my own problem and lend a hand. First attach something bootable via USB like you already know. Change boot order and boot from some kind of XP install disk. That's where I'm at right now. I'm now in the recovery console which gives me a command line. I had JUST READ somewhere the comand line commands to restore the boot manager that we just compressed.
Hold on....OK ! Problem fixed.
Step by step:
1)Get external CD reader and plug into USB
2)Boot Mini hit F10 or F12, whatever it says to change boot order
3)Reboot and you'll see you now have option to change boot order on bootup.
4)Boot to some kind of XP start disk(stupid me never even looked at HP's recovery disk yet - I didn't want to go there!)
5)Let the startup program run til it stops asking you to select an option, and hit R for recovery console
6)You'll want option 1 for c:/windows and type your password when asked
6)type fixboot then enter
7)It will happily inform you that your boot record is repaired
There may be some warnings or statements in between. You're desperate - agree to whatever they say! ;-)
9)Don't worry, be happy
If you can't stand that you now have that message booting up every time and it looks weird, RIGHT click my computer, properties, advanced, startup and recovery settings, and edit ....change default operating system from ** to Microsoft Windows XPHome etc."
click edit and for good measure delete where it has WINDOWS="" as an operating system. Don't mess with this if you're not sure.
10)Now be happy!

Can't reload windows xp. Keeps shutting down???? Acer 2700 Laptop

this happens when you have errors with the hard drive not responding to the new boot or drivers not responding. is this a clean install or a restore? if you are not using the original xp disk the machine came with you may get these errors. the blue screen usually has a message in it. let me know what it says if you get a second.

Blue Screen Error Message

Your hard drive crashed. You need to buy a new hard drive and restore your computer using the restore disks. You can buy a hard drive here: They also sell larger hard drives. If you dont have a restore disk, you'll need to contact HP and they'll send you one.
