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.

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.

Crashing a compaq nx7010 o n purpose


You can directly do this with setup boot diskette (came with your laptop).
There you'll find the option to format and do a clean installation of windows.
For this, you need to configure CD-ROM as your first boot device and follow on-screen instructions after booting.(i am assuming that you've done the formatting and clean setup before)

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.
