Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Compaq nc6000 laptop sometimes wont turn on. Ill hit the power button the fan will kick on for about 7seconds or so and the lightning bolt symbol will stay lit. normally the hard drive lights, power light and the three lights by the power button will flash before the hard drive will start up and the fan kicks on. but if i keep pushing the power button it will eventually start. also when windows shuts down the computer sometimes it freezes and i have to shut it off by holding the power button down.

Old old old laptops, with windows 2000 or XP, (doomed for sure there both are VIRUS MAGNETS AND ZERO SUPPORT NOW)
a circa 2006 LT. (3+ years before W7 sold)
now the power fails. (could be a blessing....)

NO OS stated, what operating system is on this old dog.
XP?

Fans dead, means power failure.
BIOS dead, same or screen dead.
does external VGA screens work, not if it shuts off sure.

step 1 is does it run with the battery out, main battery huge. does it?

click Laptops black screens of deathhh here.

windows can freeze for many reasons, 1000s.
but is 2, in truth corruption or power loss.

you push the power button, battery out.
you hear fans,see lights but vastly more important
are the BIOS messages on the screen.
on my HP's power on, battery out. line cord in AC jack and power pack connected
we push power, and the screen always shows
"hit ESC to setup BIOS"
or some other key on OLD DOGS.
it must
if not you have no power. easy no?
if this works and the hot key ESC (0r your prompted )
key works, and bios screens work what is next
the HDD and its corrupted OS.

we then in a real shop boot to live windows PE stick or CD or Linux CD. live.
omg the the computer works and is bad OS on my old dog HDD.

    btw if XP , it has always love to freeze shutting down, the reason is 2 fold.

    1: XP sux and they all do that.
    2: drivers or other bad programs fail to shut down on command causing XP to go batty.

    XP is junk get rid of it.
    Get a new LT from GOODWILL that has w7 on it.
    and win.
    win7 shuts down.
    w10 is even better, and is even now
    programmable by you to set rules for shut down
    took mS 16 years to remove head from can and do this right,
    on mine , i can check a box,. that says.
    shut down ,no matter what, and set delays.
    but of MS WORD is open , you lose the file or it truncates. your call there.

    and rule 3, all XP are infected and never ever will work right again, due to VIRUS MAGNET status.

    i guess you missed how UK had hospital shut down due to the inane practice of using XP there. and worse , missed the last ever update.

Hi,these particular brand of Hp series is very problematic,try checking the Ram out,its usually underneath the keyboard,so if you have two installed try using one at a time to boot system,if problem persist have an I.T Technician look at it.

HP Compaq nc6000 wont start up


Hi there.
This could be a problem with the system memory.
Take the battery out and the AC power, turn the laptop over and look for a panel with screws on it, unscrew the panel and you should see something like this >>>>>>>>>
a91aeb5.jpeg
Unclip the memory by pushing the little lugs outwards and the memory should pop up ready to be taken out, get a clean dry paintbrush and clean the memory and the slots.
If you have more than one stick of memory just put one of them back and try booting the laptop up.
If one works try the other and see how you get on.
Post back for any additional help

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

FLASHING AMBER UNDER LIGHTNING SYMBOL


Is it an amber lightning bolt? (I am assuming thats what you mean by UNDER lightning symbol)

That is the charging symbol for your battery, it means your battery is being charged by your power adapter.

Flashing lightning bolt on Compaq C300


This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.

HP compaq nc6000 Start up problems


cpu is getting over heated because the fan cooling it is slow or not working well or stopped . go into setup , see the cpu temperature, and fan speed , if normal , neglect the above cause.

change ram , use any other working ram .

battery may not be fully charged , or old battery.
battery faulty (current leakage or less working voltage or less current storage capacity,
use mains supply , if lap top is ok on mains supply then charging section or battery is faulty.
