HP compaq nx9110 BIOS battery/hd not detected

Hi,

I have replaced my motherboard in a HP compaq nx9110, the laptop switchs on but no light shows for the hard drive and nothing appears on the screen, previously the hard drive worked perfectly.

I was thinking that maybe i should reset the bios by removing the battery, but i am a bit worried about removing it as it seems to be attached by very thin wires.

Does anyone have any tips on how i can do this safely, with distroying anything, or any ideas on what else may be causing my hard drive to not be recognised?

greatly appreciated

    I've been given a non working nx9110. Wasn't powering up and now is but same, no HDD activity an no display. CD spins up and battery charges even, touchpad on/off works as does the wifi.



    I have dismantled and checked all connections and was considering desoldering the CMOS battery myself.

Hi there , if the main battery is removed the cmos battery will go flat , if its a small pcb mounted 1 you can short the contacts for a short time , if the cdrom is working it mains the 5volt supply is ok and you should be able to hear the hard drive spin up unless there is damage to the pins on the hdd or the adaptor or hdd is mounted wrong .

The CMOS battery is the RTC battery. (Real Time Clock Battery)

If memory serves it is under the Keyboard.

Same area as this NX7300,

When I turn the laptop on it powers up but there is a black screen. It's a compaq nx9110


Shut it down. Take the battery out. Unplug it. Leave the battery out then turn the computer back on. If you still have a black screen there is a hardware problem. If you have an external monitor connect it to the laptop and switch to show on external monitor. If you can see externaly then problem is cable or screen problem. If you can't see external picture then problem is most likely a chip on the motherboard. Video chip problem common on hp and compaq laptops.

When you pull the battery it will set your cmos back to factory
defaults.

Do one thing first, Your CMOS holds a lot of important information so before you go messing around with the batteryWRITE DOWN YOUR SETTINGS.

There are a few different ways to reset the cmos, here's a few:

1. there are many default common passwords,
such as:

At boot-up note the BIOS provider (Award, AMI, Phoenix, IBM, etc.)

For Award BIOS' try these backdoor passwords:

AWARD_SW

HLT
SER
SKY_FOX
BIOSTAR
ALFAROME
Lkwpeter
j256
AWARD?SW
LKWPETER
syxz
ALLy
589589
589721
awkward
CONCAT
d8on
CONDO
j64
szyx

For AMI BIOS' try these backdoor passwords:

AMI
BIOS
PASSWORD

Laptop won't charge up - I replaced the battery and the Charger


It probably needs to have the d/c jack on the motherboard replaced. Not tough to do, but would suggest you having a techie do it for you. I do it all the time for $60us + parts.

Lost bios password


if you are refering to bios password then you have to locate the cmos battery and remove for 5 minutes or so,or clear cmos memory terminal on the motherboard by shorting it, but location of these is tricky, normally around the hard drive bay.
