Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook

1 Answer

IBM 600x The subject should be enough alone right, but I loaded Ubuntu OS on it and my graphics are down to 600x480!!! WTF!!!! This same laptop ran Windows XP previously... Do I need more memory?, new graphics card? Something along the same lines is happening with my n400c compaq laptop.

No...the problem is that your VGA cards doesn't have it's Driver for the perticular OS...so the VGA cannot work properly...thats why it is at 640

How to fix IBM 600x very slow


Seth,

Sorry, but this machine has seen better days. At 500MHz it just can't handle today's robust media rich web sites and programs. Plus all those optimizer's slow it down as well.

For example I have a 2.66GHz that's 5X's faster and its about ten yrs old. I would purchase a new one in a second, if I had the money.

Happy Shopping!

I have a problen with a lap ibm 600x thinkpad . shows error 19990305


if your bios is loading up completely then you need to reinstall the OS with a disk. If the bios is not loading up all the way you need to go into your bios and reset it to the defaults. If you can't access the bios you need a new motherboard and unfortunately with laptops it is cheaper to but a new laptop than a replacement motherboard. You can rip out the HDD though and put it into an external enclosure to get all your old files. then once you have all your old files off of it you can format the old HDD and you have an external HDD for future back up :)

Try starting the machine in safe mode: Repeatedly press F8 on startup and choose safe mode from the options window. This only loads the basic drivers so if the problem is with graphics driver for instance, the machine should boot to the desktop. If this is successful, you can uninstall the display driver from device manager: start>control panel>hardware and sound>device manager. Look for display adapters and expand the menu. Right click the adapter and uninstall.
Reboot the machine normally. You can then download and install a new driver.

The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.

When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

Ibm thinkpad 600x brightness control


There is no otherway. becase the slides sends direct signal to inverter for adjusting brightness. You can adjust brightness the
other way ,through graphic cards property, but that is only adjustment for the color and if you do make it bright, you'll be loosing the vivid color..not so natural.
takecare.
