    I have the exact same problem. I asks for smartcard although none is required and then locks down. It will not let me reinstall because password is required before boot sequence is completed.

You can remove rtc battery and wipe all passwords.(rtc on motherboard)
theres software called spotmau power suite which u create a boot disk then put into cd and bootup and pc runs programs at startup.one program wipes all passwords.another resets bios(and passwords)
if you want a copy let me know and I'll mail it u.
you could try booting from xp disk and before format delete partition create new partition then format.if system doesnt allow this.boot with a win 95/98 disk and choose start with cd support and choose fdisk.dont know how or no luck?get back to me for precedure.

Smart card stuck


Remove the power cord. Doublke-check that you removed the power cord! Use a butter knife to gently press in on the smart card in a push-to-release effort. Then insert an unfolded paper clip along the side of the smart card and try to nudge it outwards.

What or is there anything I can do to get past a smartcard message?


Is the message after Windows boots up? or before you even see a windows logo?

Smart card security is an alternative way to secure a laptop. The nc4200 has a BIOS setting for removing it, however you need an approved smart card to get in to change that. Sounds like you wasted your money if that is the case.

If the laptop actually boots up, I would recommend doing a system recovery.

SMART CARD AUTHENTICATION no smart card reader found


I'm only guessing here, but did you set it up for Smart Card Authentication? If so I guess if the card reader hardware fails then so does Authentication unless replaced. Anyway I'm keen to hear the perfect solution for your Laptop problem.

Says to insert smart card on my hp laptop


Your laptop is locked and will not boot without the correct smart card. It has a smartcard reader on the left side of the laptop. If there's a card in the slot, make sure it's correcly inserted.

I have toshiba portege r600 and need to get cac card reader for dept of defense. there's express card slot for my laptop. so i shouldn't get pcmcia smart card reader, but express card reader supported by...


It really doesn;t matter which one you choose as long as it works. One is no more "Secure" than the other.
PCMCIA cards are great, So are Express cards. But as said whatever works. Just make sure it has relevent current approved drivers etc. ya be good to go.

Is this in Windows or a bootup of the pc? If at bootup you'll need to reset the bios (can be found in manual) , otherwise you can try a reinstall of windows with the cds you got with the pc. WARNING: if you use this you will all your data on the pc
