Hi,
On Compaq evos, some hard-drives Are easily accesible underneath via A single-screw flap panel.
On looking at the specs of your machine, i,d suggest that it,s accesible from underneath the keyboard. this involves. removal of battery and ram. ( To avoid Static Damage )
Removal of the Power-Switch Panel. Then you can get access to the keyboard. Keyboard removal And hard drive bay will then be easily accessed. Youe other options are to purchase an external USB Hard-drive, and configure in the bios to be the first or primary boot device.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

How do you repair the error message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL for an Evo n410c?


Hi there
This message usually pops up in the "blue screen" This Stop message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory address to which it did not have permission to access.
This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 and select "Last Known Good Configuration"
this should repair the machine, although in some case the system has to be recovered

Keep us posted and Merry Christmas

Laptop fails to start up


Sounds like your hard drive has gone bad. Can be easily replaced with another 2.5" laptop hard drive but all your stuff is lost I'm afraid. Get it fixed under warranty if you still have time.
