    Anyway, long story short: This is typical problem with HP NX6110 series caused by loose Intel chip. Can be fixed, long discussion about it in HP forum:http://forums13.itrc.hp.com/service/foru... Permanent fix when reflowing the Intel ICH chip in a good gsm shop. http://img362.imageshack.us/img362/2622/... Or temporary when putting something on the chip to apply constant pressure when you reassemble the unit. Warning: Technical skills needed. DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK! Alternatively if laptop in not freezing it can be still used when booting from external drive or usb key. Easyest solution is selling it on ebay with your story and getting new one from there. Good luck ;)

Maybe the harddrive is not properly connected or its damaged. make sure the jumper settings are correct that is set as master and the IDE cable is firmly fixed.

Hp compaq nx6110 hangin when booting and difficult to recognise the hard drive


Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 at startup until the boot menu appears. Then select "safe mode with networking". If it boots into safe mode then see if your missing some drivers in device manager. If you are then download and install them. Next run some anti-virus and anti-malware programs to make sure your system is clean.

HP COMPAQ NX6110 LAPTOP HANGS WHEN BOOTING, BUT WHEN PRESSED AROUND THE MOUSE PAD OR HARD DISK AREA IT WORKS , BUT HANGS AGAIN LATER


It seems that the hard drive or the memory module is not seated properly and hence after pressing on the area below keyboard it gets released.
You can try following things.
Remove and reseat the Hard drive.
And remove and reseat the Memory.
Try to power on the laptop again.
If is getting hang again then you may need to do the HDD self test and memory test built into BIOS.

Set your system BIOS to boot from Hard Drive and check if the BIOS detect your Hard Drive too. Remove your Hard Drive and Place it again.

How can i replace my cd to a dvd in my compaq lab top


You'll have to order a drive for your model of laptop (either from the manufacturer or from ebay), and have it installed. Most of the drives in this style of laptop are held in place by a single screw. Power down the laptop, remove the retaining screw, remove the old drive, install the new drive, and replace the screw. Windows will detect the new drive automatically, and then you can install the DVD software. Keep us posted and good luck.
