It's better and easier to just replace the whole touch pad assembly and top cover. It's all one piece...much easier and cost is the same.

This is the part number:

SOURCE: i recently sanitise my hd

I had to fix this problem a couple years ago, it's common on Compaq's. The only way to fix it is to short out the CMOS battery on the motherboard. Doing this voids your warranty, so if you wish to follow that course I cannot tell you exactly where to go, but google's your friend. The other option you have is to call Compaq and open a ticket with tech support. If your laptop is still under warranty, you may even get a new computer.

P8z77-v LK SATA Controller Problem ??

The board was working fine until you did what you did. HD is all messed up software wise. Wipe it completely and do a clean reinstall of your OS. And stay away from updates ,etc. The only time you resort to them is when you have an issue. Otherwise, you very often turn a good working piece of gear into a paper weight or junk.
And 8 is the worst OS down the pike - Use 7 and drivers for win 7.

It is a 2005 machine and was designed for Vista so an upgrade from Vista to Win7 may work as the drivers will need updating as it loads one OS from the other OS.
A bios update would possibly help also.

My HP ProLiant ML350 G5 failed to boot to Windows. After showing Windows 2003 Server, blank screen comes up

There was a critical HP ProLiant ML350 G5 ROM BIO upgrade dated on 17 Aug 2010.
Please bookmark the bio update link HERE for reference.

Check your monitor Hz and display resolution setting.
Did you change any video driver or resolution before reboot?
If all else fail then swap in a simple S-VGA card and let Windows 2003 to sort out the 640X480 display mode.

OS will not boot up. unable to start in any mode and also unable to do chkdsk. doing an OS will not boot test, results in sata error uncorrectable data or is read only

My best guess is that your hard drive has failed or is failing. Replace it. Boot to your Windows CD/DVD and install windows. Then add your old drive as a second disk and, if you are lucky, you can copy your data from it before it fails completely.

Good luck. I hope this helps.

My HP Compaq nx6610 hangs in all stages of booting and when starting up. The problems is when you press power switch to re-boot, the screen remains at "press F10 to enter bios." The same happens...

Well they all do infected, (oldest story there is on PC';endless)
which OS?, oper. system. XP the Virus magnet?
HP only supports VISTA as newest OS for the OLD notebook
Rule1 : it must run on AC power only (wall power) battery out
batteries are shorted lived, and can short. so. get it out of there first.
get the PC working that try battery. LAST OF ALL.
That is first.
Its not hot, 30c is cold.
You re-installed, windows. via, what the HP disks?
DId you boot from the CD? from HP>? to do a fresh install?
or some old Microsoft disk? no disk or OS stated here.
When you use a CD to install after the setup.exe runs
it reboots the PC and the CD MUST be removed.
or keeps repeating the 1st phase of install for ever.
phase2 runs off HDD, to complete, if this fails the HDD dead.
HDD can be 1/2 good, and fail see? like a glass of water with small hole... bad.

if that fails, the HDD is bad, or power to it is weak. (wrong)
Did the install complete.?
DId you make sure BIOS is booting to the HDD?
HDD = hard disk drive.
My wild guess unseen is (near useless) IS, HDD bad.
put in a new SSD drive and win.
your PC is near end of support at HP
get the software seen below and keep it. for later.

here are drivers (pick your OS and use those) just drivers.

next get the media kit, from HP,

here is the media kit page, the official HP install disks or USB stick way.

Win XP is obsolete. Whatever happens it will go through the BIOS stage, if not the hdd may be corrupted. Boot into safe mode and run CHKDSK/f. That may cure your problem otherwise reinstall XP from your CD.
