When you say it's slow what I often found is that
1.not enough memory on your laptop
** so your CPU have to use your harddisk as memory,instead of working directly your CPU have another work to manage thus cos your system to slow down.
** you can check memory usage by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and check
Physical memory and see your available memory.

2.use more than one anti-virus program.Its just like before your work has been check by one program and now somebody is calling your same work to be recheck.Thus cos your system to become really slow.

3.Something is running all the time.A virus or something is running all the time.Shut it down by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and see CPU
usage that its 100%!!!! If so go up to process tab and right click
on the process you think is creating problem and End Process Tree.

3.The combination of not enough muemory and also not enough
harddrive space.When I say not enough harddriver I mean really low about 100-300 Megs.

so in your case not the problem with Harddrive..cos you have 1.5G

takecare.

Some system come with the option to restore default settings so you will not need the CD. Usually there is a utility tool provided by the manufacturer that you can use within windows to restore factory settings or by pressing alt+F10/F11/F12 at the startup menu, and this will take you to restoring the factory settings. If you have not got the utility installed or there is no partition with the default settings, the following link click here (HP owns compaq so the link will take you to hp website )will take your where you can download this utility for your system. This SoftPaq contains an InstallShield utility that allows the user to restore the original registry defaults for the Compaq Evo N620c. These system default settings include the the default Power management settings. You might have to free space by deleting stuff and uninstalling unnecessary apps it is not exactly formatting but you have no recovery CD and no Partition that includes the factory defaults then I guess it is not a bad option.
By the way Your laptop will have the Authentication key for the operating system of your PC at the bottom of your laptop this I do not know how useful that is but it was worth mentioning good luck

My compaq evo nc620c laptop wont boot up, only goes to the "compaq" log screen from where I can go into F10 rom based setup or F12 network boot only.


Without having seen it, it sounds like a hard drive problem. Could be dead, could be the boot info has been destroyed (virus?).

ROM setup should be able to tell you more about the hard drive, and whether Setup can see it.

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.

Compaq n620c evo laptop


Check your floppy drive and see if there's a disk in it and remove it. If there is no diskette in the floppy drive and you are still getting the error. You can go into the Bios and turn off the "boot from floppy drive", that way it will not look for the floppy drive when booting up. Hope this helps.

Cannot locate ram on compaq EVO N620c


The RAM is located under a panel on the LHS of the touchpad.
You need a thin blade/knife to slip under this panel to lift it up and out. It is clipped in with plastic catches on the panel.
