What you have done is put a BIOS password on your system, all you have to do is enter the password you typed after you hit F10 the first time when the system boots up. if the password does not work try hitting the caps lock key and entering the password again.

You need to check in the BIOS to see if the hard drive is being detected. Other than that, do you have like a flash disk or a media card attached to it when booting up?

How to get into the bios settings


Compaq Evo N1000C Notebook?

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F10 key.

If you hear beeps ignore them.
They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it.

The F10 key is supposed to be pressed when the Compaq logo comes up.
Problem is the window of opportunity to enter BIOS Setup, goes by
F-A-S-T!

The above circumvents the problem, and gets you into BIOS Setup

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Now I have one of my own................why are you going into BIOS Setup?

How can I change boot sequence in Compaq Evo N410c?


You need to access your BIOS configuration. 1. To do this, shutdown your computer and boot it by pressing the power button. 2. You need to hit F10 when the computer first powers up in order to get into BIOS (Note that the key is usually different for different computers. If F10 doesnt work, try F2, F12, Delete or F9. 3. Once in the BIOS, you should find the boot sequence option.
Hope this helps!

The best way is to double click the windows wireless symbol by the clock and click preferences on the left. Open the Networks tab and the first option is a check box to use windows for wireless, check the box and click apply. Once again double click the wireless symbol and select your network.

Unlock Bios Compac evo


On most PCs you can open the BIOS by hitting while the computer is booting: Del, F10, F2, Alt+Enter, F1. These are the most common but if they don't work just hit keep hitting your different "F" keys each time you boot one of them should open the BIOS. If the BIOS is password protected you'll need to either remove the BIOS/CMOS battery or short out the reset jumper on the motherboard.

I cannot enable the wireless connection on the compaq Evo n1000c


For the built-in wireless on this model (EVO N1000C) the key combination to enable/disable wireless is Fn + F2. If pressing the Fn and F2 keys together does not enable the wireless, it may be disabled in the BIOS.

If you need to check this, here are the instructions to enter the BIOS:
Turn off the computer. Power it on and immediately start tapping the F10 key about once per second until you see the BIOS screen.

Bios menu


Most Compaq units use the F10 key to enter the BIOS shut off your notebook if it is in hibernation though you may have to shut it down fully by pressing on the stand by power button and pulling at the power notch they should be located at both sides near the hinges of the screen if this does not work remove batteries this will surely bring your notebook to shut down. replace batteries then press power then press the F10 as soon as the Compaq logo comes out. Hope this works some Compaq models nee to be realy shut down before the F10 could be accessed
