HP Compaq nc6400 does not boot

Hello, I have an issue and I am quite stumped at what the problem may be. Recently, I had installed Acronis Disk Manager and several other hard drive/disk manager type programs on my laptop and after which I restarted my computer.

Once I restarted my computer, it seemed as though my computer was loading fine at first but it ceased working after the boot menu (screen with the HP logo and screen in which you can choose to enter BIOS). Although, after five mintues I realized that the computer had stopped botting. The computer stops booting in the completely black screen with the white blinking dash in the right upper hand corner.

At first I believed one of the programs I had installed had somehow interfered with the booting process but this no longer seems to be the case. But I no longer think this is the case because I have now replaced the system.sav, default.sav, sam.sav, sofware.sav etc. files with previous backups and yet my computer still does not load.

I have as well used multiple boot disks and have been able to use and extract files from my hard drive. I have done diagnostic tests on all hardware with multiple diagnostic programs\tools. All of the hardware has passed the diagnostic tests except for the motherboard cache test which had failed in only one diagnostic program.

And so, I believe the problem may be more intricate than my current knowledge and so I require some help.

If anyone has any advice or requires clarification please let me know.

Thanks

I have hp compaq nc6400 1.66 ram 1gb but duraing windows installation very slow plz send me soulation


Firstly you have to do a locally or remotly backup of all your documents cause in this process you may loose some of your vital document. Check to see if your Operating System (OS) is up to date. Or you can do a Restore if you have creat One. Its a Software issue and once you Re-install your Operating stsrem all will be fine.

I too had same problem and I guess you too have the same problem as mine. VGA adapter is not working anymore. Hardware failure. You may need to change the motherboard.

Hello,
Sorry to hear about your issue.Unfortunately power-on password on notebooks if forgotten can be unlock only at Hp repair center or any authorize repair center.It will be a little expensive fix.

Thankyou

Does not boot nor goes to BIOS. Does not respond to f9 or f10 keys


according to the maintenance guide. If you are using an external drive try to reseat it. If is from the hard drive you can try to use the CD or diskette to boot. If not the hard drive or system board need replacement. Try to get a boot disk of windows (installation cd, not upgrade but the full windows) and try booting the cd by pressing the space bar repeatedly. Good luck

No display


Basic diagnostics when you experience display problems

Display is black?
Does the external vga output works?
Yes >> only your display assembly is defect
No >> your mainboard is defect

Mostly it results in the replacement of the complete mainboard.
Last things you can trie is flash a new bios version using the the external output if that works.
