None of the above. Sorry. All those "solutions" are "shooting in the dark". There is a definitive method of determining the problem here, without guesswork.

The "HP screen" you speak of is an "advertising mask" governed by the "quiet boot" option in BIOS.

This HP screen is shown INSTEAD of showing you exactly what BIOS is "doing" at that moment: First, a ROM checksum to verify BIOS is OK, then a quick system check of the most basic components, and if that goes well, the next thing it does is count AND check the RAM. Finally, after all that is done, it will look for a hard drive and query that drive for cylinder or LBA size, then look at MBR for sector zero, to find an operating system.

So here is what you must do to SEE all that taking place:

1. Make sure the system is TOTALLY cold (off, not in any ACPI state). Do this by pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds, then release.

2. Remove Battery and the PSU (AC power supply)

3. Insert the PSU connector (only) this will also eliminate any battery problems. Batteries with dead cells can pull out so much current that you get slow boot/running performance. More on this later.

4. Now, start the computer, and keep pressing ESC key, quickly. It may start beeping. Stop and wait then.

5. Next, you will see a BLACK screen instead of HP screen. There will be some white text that scrolls. First the BIOS type and version. Next, RAM will be counted, and last, a HD will be reported. Last (or if any of the above have a problem) any errors will be reported. Some BIOS will specify the error, others will report it as "code XXX". Send me (post) this info, and I will analyze the problem.

NOTE: you can hit the PAUSE key at any time, to read the info, if it runs too fast for you. Then press PAUSE key again, to resume the BIOS data post process. Once you have reported back with any errors (as in step 5 above), we can also do this same thing with Windows, to "see" the black screen/errors reported as the PC boots.

Hi taahir,

I don't think that the solution hughv gave you is the most correct for your problem because it happens before the operating system starts to load.

If it takes 10 minutes to show the HP boot screen, it seems that until then it is trying to detect the hard disk or optical device. It may be a problem with your hard disk or the controller. If possible, try to test with another hard disk to check if it takes the same time until the HP boot screen shows.

Regards

See this article from MS. Pay special attention to the network drives and startup programs issues:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/expert/northrup_restoreperf.mspx
If you got the OS or recovery disks, it might make sense just to reformat and reinstall the OS.
If you didn't get these disks, make an effort to do so.

Compaq f756NR laptop won't boot.


I think this is a problem with the laptop's LCD display. To verify this connect the laptop to an external display and see if it resolves the issue. If it does then its confirmed that its a display related issue. Since the issue has appeared suddenly I dont think its a serious problem. May be just loose/disconnected connectors. Should be a 10 minute job for a qualified technician.
If the external display too doesn't come on then its an issue with the graphics card and you may need to replace it.

have anything in display? if there is none, it is an LCD Panel problem and system board problem. If there is display, just open the back part of the laptop and remove the RAM modules and turn it ON. the system should beep. Then turn it OFF and after 1 minute put the RAM modules back and turn the laptop ON. should get the display now

Display on but back light not on HP nx 6110


Hello,

This could be an issue with the inverter problem. Are you using a universal adapter? If so, this could be the possible reason why the inverter died. It is not supplying the correct input for the inverter, thus the damage.

Please consider to bring this to an authorized HP service center. If its still under warranty, the better.

Laptop screen shows balck & white grids only- no images nx 6110


Hello,

I have had this same problem with a HP DV2000 and the problem is not the contrast light. What it is, is that the laptop thinks that the screen is been shut down that is why the light does not come on. The best way to solve this is to remove your keyboard first.

You can remove the keyboard by removing exactly 7 screws from your laptop back, there are 5 screws located under your battery and other two that are in the location of your RAM'S.

Just open them up and then you will notice that the key board pops out abit then just simply take it up and then just below the keyboard, on the same line where HP brand logo is on your machine there are two small clip types of pind, that you can remove and put back.
There is a clip that is hidden abit under the metal plate, so just try and remove that clip from its place using a needle or any long and thin object.

That will make the laptop not have the problem. But once you remove that the laptop constantly will think that the screen is open even if you close it. then after like a week or two you can put it back and all shall be fine if not then just remove it and keep it out.

You can then set your power options to shut down the screen light every 2 minutes or something like that so as to avoid the backlight being switched on all the time.

Hope this solves your problem.

How to set the clock on the car stereo (Naxa nx-670)


I had the same issue. I bought my 671 mp3 car stereo from jujudeals.com and I was having the same problem. I called them up and they said that I have to go to clock mode. When in 'Clock Mode' you have to press and hold Select (SEL) and at the same time press FF/REV to adjust time. (Fast Forward adjusts hour, Rewind adjusts minute). If your still having problems contact the Naxa Electronics warranty department. Goodluck!

My compaq laptop freezes after 30 minutes


It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. Have you expierenced that problem also? There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!
