Question about Compaq Evo N410C Notebook

1 Answer

EVO N410c won't boot past windows page

I lost power while on battery. Trying to reboot, the pc gets to the windows XP page then flips to the '...windows did not start successfully' and start options screen. Won't start in any option (safe, command prompt, etc) I've changed BIOS to enable laptop ethernet boot but can't work out how this works. The only boot devices listed are multi bay 1 & 2, the hard disk & the ethernet. The multi bay has a wireles LAN card installed which doesn't seem much help. I don't have on board floppy or disk drives. How the heck can I get in to say maybe reinstall or fix windows

    Thanks for your reply silverdragon - though my problem is complicated by the fact there is no internal/external floppy or CD drive - even so there is no boot from option that point to CD or floppy, only HDD or ethernet. I've got the XP disc but no way of getting it read by the PC.

How can I change boot sequence in Compaq Evo N410c?


You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!
