When you place your Windows XP Disk in the drive, ensure that as the Notebook starts to boot, the words "Press any key to boot from disc ..." is on the screen and then press any key. If you do not get that option choice, go into the Notebooks BIOS and set first boot option to CD or DVD, then try again.
If the system you have on the Notebook is newer than the verion of XP that you trying to install, the Notebook will default to the newer system. A real pain! so make it boot from the CD not the hard drive with the bios settings.

Modil Evo N620c sound is not coming


I take it you mean you have installed XP. Have you also installed the drivers for your laptop? To check if any drivers are needed do the following

Right click My Computer (if it's not on your screen click start first)
Select properties/Hardware/device manager. Anything with a questiion mark next to it needs drivers installed.

If you don't have a drivers disk you'll have to download them from the manufacturers site.

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.

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.

Turn wireless on


Try the function key and F2. If that is not it then look for a key that has a wireless icon on it(looks like a tower with waves coming off of it). The F2 key is the one on similar models.

Hope this helps!
