Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook
I have read a lot of post regarding the HP NC6000, theres is talk about bad capacitators(presumably in the powersupply), does anyone have specific info on which caps to change. (ref num or pics)
no boot, blank screen, no beeps
striped dvd/hd/mem/keyb/battery etc doesn´t change behavior,
checked with alternate supply, no change
thx in advance
This is how you solve the boot and beep problem with HP laptops:
PROBLEM: laptop doesn't boot, gives a long beep and two short beeps and leaves you with a black screen.
=> Your BIOS might be damaged, so we have to flash it.
Switch the laptop on and just leave it on when the beeps occured. The laptop will switch off automatically. If not, just switch it off after a few minutes. Now switch it on again and look if it boots. If not, try again.
You can also try to remove the battery while turned on. This is a soft reset. Re-insert the battery after 5 minutes.
There are a few more tricks, just Google them.
2. BIOS FLASH
You're back in Windows so _back-up_ all important data to an external storage device! Now flash the BIOS. If you have a notebook with Intel processor use this link:
SOME BIOS SETTINGS WILL RESET. IF WINDOWS WON'T BOOT ANYMORE CHECK THESE SETTINGS! f.e. SATA Native Support & Windows XP.
3. OTHER THINGS YOU CAN TRY
- Hardware reset: remove any cables (power!!, usb,...) AND your battery and push in the power button for 30 seconds. This will discharge the notebook.
- Remove and re-insert the memory modules.
If this doesn't work for you, sent your laptop to HP. Repairing your laptop will (according to HP) take 15-20 days when spare parts are in stock.

No in he power supply , but on the motherboards power regulation area,
you have to be real good at soldering 4 layer board and have the right tools . its not an easy job even if your skilled,
one bit of heat too much and you fry the board.
there are techniques to this that you can only learn by doing.
the caps are apparent if you are a tech.
the most you should attempt is to just purchase a replacement board.
I see these board available on ebay for 40.00 including shipping.
