Question about HP Compaq nc6230 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Compaq nc6230 notebook that just started acting up on me. It started yesterday when I tried shutting the computer down and the Windows screen shutting down screen stayed on forever. I ended up turning the computer off with the screen up. Afterwards when I tried turning the computer back on, the computer beeps once and a dimmed blue box comes on asking me to insert the Smart Card into Reader. I tried a dozen times, changed the hard drive out, reseated the RAM, nothing worked. I finally did get the computer to start properly just once, allowing me to back up my files, but once I turned the computer off and back on, I am back at getting the dimmed blue screen asking for the Smart Card. I can not get into my BIOS and have tried clearing the CMOS with the battery out, power button down routine. No luck. Any ideas?

Insert smart card into reader problem


I think its looking for a boot command from the card reader. Which means pressing the DEL or F10 or F2 key repeatedly while booting to get into your bios to change your boot order.

If it wont let you, try booting while pressing the F8 key, with luck it may bring up windows boot options, choose the safe mode. When up, Click on Start - all programmes - accessories - system tools - system restore - choose a date prior to problems. (This is for XP, Vista and Win7 slightly different)

Boot from your windows disk, and choose the repair option.

Or download, UBCD4Win , the ultimate boot cd for windows, This will load a windows shell system with loads of diagnotic and repair tools.

You could download and run Ubuntu without installing, that will give you access to any data files.

If none of this works, the only recourse is to re-install windows. But in
doing this, you will be re-formatting the hard drive which will remove all data on the drive.

If you don't have a copy of windows, you do have Ubuntu. I use it nearly all the time now, even though I have a dual boot system.

Blue screen c000021a fatal system error


usually blue screen comes from unstable video memory or windows system or HD.
you may try
1) reinstall windows
2) change another HD to install windows
3) change new ram memory or change memories slot between one and another
if not fixed, to be sure your video memory damage which is insualted on board(separated with RAM), only the hardware repair can be fixed.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps
