This seems to be a problem with the keyboard, there is a piece of adhesive tape that holds the cable that connects the keyboard to the mother and also holds a card that attaches the cable to the keyboard, with time this adhesive wears out and becomes loose. SOLUTION: Replace this adhesive with an original replacement. WORKAROUND: Put a 2 to 3 pound pressure on the keyboard by the space bar with the palm of your hand, this will make the adhesive hold everything together again. Enjoy! And this also can be tried? If you can not get past this screen then restart the computer and press F10. In the first BIOS catagory reset to DEFAULT BIOS. Then save and press "enter' This should get you into Windows. Now get into "Device manager" Find "smart card" Open "properties" Click "disable hardware" Restart computer. This was on one of the HP forums

Smart card stuck

Remove the power cord. Doublke-check that you removed the power cord! Use a butter knife to gently press in on the smart card in a push-to-release effort. Then insert an unfolded paper clip along the side of the smart card and try to nudge it outwards.

My compaq NC6220 prompts me to insert smart card into smart card reader when booting.

The boot order is incorrect - it lists the card reader as the first option. Go into the BIOS (F10 during boot) and change that: put the CD_ROM first followed by the hard disk.

Your laptop is locked and will not boot without the correct smart card. It has a smartcard reader on the left side of the laptop. If there's a card in the slot, make sure it's correcly inserted.
