Question about HP Compaq nx7010 Notebook

Cannot startup laptop in my apartment but can in other locations

I have a compaq nx7010. I can use my laptop with no problem at the office or friends place but when I try to start it up in my apartment, error message appears and I can only boot the laptop in safe mode. My wife's laptop works fine in the apartment. Any idea what can cause this problem?

    The problem was fixed. It was due to the wireless network of the home office that is in the house (as opposed to my personal wireless network). We were using a belkins for the home office and this was the problem....

    What is the error message? What is your operating system? Do you have a wireless network in your apartment?

    I also want you to know that there seems to be a common misconception about people who answer questions on this website....we don't work for FixYa and we don't get paid...we are just trying to help. Thanks.

We have experienced this issue on many laptops and the common problem is not so obvious, but very simple. Try to turn the laptop on with wireless adapter DISABLED. If it starts, then chances are, You are in reach of N-protocol WiFi transmitter. These are new and not yet fully approved Hi-Speed WiFi access points, which gives speed to a few, but a headache to many. ;) :)

    From my experience this phenomenon is caused by N-protocol WiFi access points, which are not yet approved for general use. Try to start up the book with WiFi off - if it does, try to figure out which of Your neighbors uses WiFi based on IEEE 802.11n standard. ;) :)

Star looking more closely at the surrounding environment. Is there other electronic equipment in your apartment that may be interfering with your laptop. Where do you set your laptop when you are trying to start it up at your house as opposed to where you set it up at work? etc....
Genuinely appears to be an environmental issue.

Check on the ram, power adapter cable, battery and if that is not the case try to see if you can repair windows xp. Otherwise it could be that the motherboard is damage

Compaq nx7010 power light comes on but the system won't start. No display. Can hear CD Drive searching. No HD activity.

First confirm that it isn't just the video. Plug a external monitor in to the computer and verify it isn't just the video/screen.
  • Now that we know it isn't just the screen
Now we are going to reset the bios. and verify it isn't the battery.
  • Pull the main battery out and attempt to power with only the cord.
Still doesn't work?
  • Pull the bios battery (This requires opening the computer if you are comfortable with that)
  • remove the panel behind the keyboard covering the hinges. (may have to remove screws from the bottom first. It should snap out.
  • unscrew the keyboard 3-4 on the top and may be a few from teh bottom.
  • Lay the keyboard back without disconnecting.
  • The cmos battery should be under there. Remove and replace after about 10 minutes.
This is a generic blanket process for all laptops. Your battery may be in a different place.
  • If this doesn't cure what ails it, then take it to a repair office for a new motherboard.

Nx7010 does not start.

Hello dear, probably some BIOS values changed, causing u no displays. Try this key combination immediately after startup

esc - loads bios, but not in display
F9 - (hope its F9 in ur laptop) resets BIOS
F10 - saves BIOS to default values and exits

Or else try removing CMOS battery, its right beneath the keyboard. (Just remove 1 screw) Remove and hold for 1 minute and then reinsert and turn up laptop on. Your PC should be fine.

Sorry to dissappoint You mate, but NX7010 has no built-in microphone... VERY illogical design, for its time, but it's the sad truth. Buy an external one, plug it in and You shall see, that the sliders and tickers are suddenly working.
