Question about HP Compaq nx6110 PC Laptop
It's always astounding to me how many people on forums leave answers to things they clearly have little or absolutely no idea or experience of. In the case of the old 104 error - its because only a specific few models of wifi card are allowed by the computers hardware - it has nothing to do with software/drivers, its an electronic restriction enforced by the manufacturer of the laptop.
Note very carefully that this error occurs 'before' the operating system is running - it's BIOS controlled, so asking what OS, or what other hardware/software/hair color etc. is pointless' and those leaving an answer should stay silent unless they have any real answer to problems :-( It will save millions of readers sifting through page after page of random waffle.
But anyway, that's the problem - you need a wifi card that is allowed by the laptops hardware, it happens on quite alot of HP computers - Thanks HP !

You have to remove the wireless card adapter, if it is inserted into one of the accessory card ports on the laptop. If the wireless adapter is installed internally in the computer, consult your user manual on how to remofe the wireless adapter.

I think you can try this steps and hope it will help you.
Try to reseat the Wireless Card in your machine.
You will need the following tools to complete the removal and replacement procedures:
-Phillips P0 screwdriver
-5.0-mm socket for system board screwlocks
Turn the machine upsidedown
Remove the battery.
Wireless Card Removal
1. Loosen the PM2.0×5.0 screw 1 that secures the Mini PCI
compartment cover to the computer.
2. Lift the rear edge of the Mini PCI compartment cover 2, and
then swing it forward.
3. Remove the Mini PCI compartment cover.
4. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables 1 from the Mini PCI
5. Spread the two retaining tabs 2 that secure the Mini PCI
communications card to the communications compartment
socket. (The board rises up).
6. Remove the wireless communications card 3 by pulling the
board away from the socket at a 45-degree angle.
**Reverse the above procedure to install a Mini PCI
If happens that it does not work, I think you can just reinstall OS just to make sure if its Hardware or Software problem.
Thank you for choosing FixYa.

The user has not described the operating system in use.
However this problem generally occurs due to incompartible hardware. in this case it is ever stated. ie. Network interface Device. I suggest you disconnect the Network devices including cables, then try to reboot.
If not descibe how far the booting process gets and type of network hardware connected and operating system to your system
