Just replaced my hdd on Compac Presario 2100 but the system is not detecting it.


This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk.
For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade.
If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive.
As an alternative -
You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.

I have purchased (Sept 2011) a reconditioned HP NC4400 (without instruction manual) that will not connect to my existing Internet (wireless). I used Help (Intel (R) Wireless Troubleshooter) on the laptop...


Hi Steve,
The wireless switch would absolutely have an effect on whether your WIFI was ON on your laptop. The following link shows a diagram of your laptop:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12448_na/12448_na.HTML
It appears that it is a button on either the left edge of the laptop, or possibly above the keyboard. Press the button and ensure your WIFI LED (front-left edge) should be lit. Then, try connecting to your wireless network again. I hope this helps!

I dont remember power on password for hp nc4400


The power-on password prevents use of the computer until the password is entered. The
setup password prevents unauthorized changes to Computer Setup. To clear the
passwords, you must remove all power from the system board. If you do not know the
passwords, use the following procedure to clear the password:
1. Remove all battery packs.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait thirty minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power. DO NOT INSTALL THE BATTERY!
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST), a ? 162 System Options
not set? message appears.
7. Shut down the computer, then disconnect AC power again.
8. Replace the real-time clock battery.
9. Install the battery pack(s).
10. Reconnect the AC power.
11. Start the computer.
12.It should work....
