My compaq nx6110 does not automatically detect hard drive

    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.

My system cannot detected any hard drive on


go into the bios during rebooting stage and check whether you have automatic detection of drives. If set to disabled or manual change to automatic. You may have a problem with the motherboard interface to hard-drive.

My computer wont boot because it wont automatically detect my har


Usually when your BIO's doesn't detect the hard drives is usually a good indicator that the hard drive has failed. In rare instants it is the motherboard. In the boot sequence it will only show the hard drives it sees if it doesn't see any then none will be shown. I would start with a new hard drive.

Hope this helps.

To instal ethernet chord drive software compaq presario 6000 seri


The best way to obtain drivers for your Presario is to go to http://www.hp.com and select the auto-detect feature which will automatically detect your computer, ask you for the operating system, Windows XP or Vista and you will be presented with a list of the drivers which will be automatically installed for you. Alternatively you can use this link to manual choose the LAN drivers listed here:http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us〈=en&product=434626 If you need further assistance please repost.

My compaq evo n115 does not start up cause after the compaq screen it says disk error and there is no disk


This can mean hard drive failure, corrupt mbr (master boot record) or possibly you left a cd/dvd in the rom. If you have your operating systems installation disk try doing a repair, not recovery console ---repair only first.
Before that go into bios and see if your hard drive is detected.
You can also open the case and feel if the hard drive is running. Maybe unplug it and plug all connections back into the hard drive, doing this with computer off!!!

Hard Drive detects immenent failure.


If this is a brand new hard drive from a store return it for a new one. Hard drives have a built in feature called SMART. For some reason the SMART function is reading that there is something very wrong with the drive. If you have more than one hard drive installed on the system make sure SMART is detecting it on the new drive and not the older ones by unplugging the other drives from the motherboard.
