    same issue, hangs at setup is starting windows on a new xp install. Wierd thing is it will install vista just fine so problem is not with memory or hard drive. I belive there some sort of bios security feature that is preventing it but I'm unsure as to how to disable it.

Did you check the memory? Sounds like the memory has went bad. Is it noticing all of the memory? Even if it is noticed it could still be going bad or the slot could be going bad. I have seen this happen. Are you positive that the hard drive is not bad. Did you run any test on the hard drive?

Trying to reboot my hp mini 210. changed the hard drive and when i try to install windows, it states that there is no hard drive. What do i do now?

Hi there, The reason your laptop isnt detecting the hardrive during install is cause of the Sata controller. I would advise you download the driver for it at the following site and during the windows installation it will ask if you wish to install aditional drivers and you will need to press F6 so that it can load the drivers for the Controller.
Hope it helps,

Hi, I posted few days ago with similar problem. I have nc6000 and problem was that I couldn`t thrun it on, the fan starts and orange light was turning on, than it all stops. I received possible solution from BlackMamba, but I did it before and it lasts for a few months. Now, I read about same problem on few blogs and finaly I decide to disassemle it an to find that famous max1987. I found it reflow with heat fan for soldering and guess what...? It works. I am not ready to celebrate yet, but I think that soldering max1987 is the real solution for that problem. Thaks. Bye.

No usb

If your USB ports are installed correctly and enabled in BIOS, you will see Universal Bus Controller list in the the Device Manager. Double-click your USB in the Device Manager and a dialog box will appear. Click on the driver tab and update the driver. To get to Device Manager right-click on My Computer>click on Hardware>Device Manager. If your computer has a built-in USB device and does not detect the device through the Device Manager, confirm that the USB is enabled in the computers BIOS and that the BIOS supprts USB devices.
