I have a problem is that I forgot in my lap top hp compaq nx7300 the password to quit the BIOS
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password.
This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.
Anyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. It should look something like this : http://pctechnotes.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/remove-battery.jpg
Some computers have this part standing upright. Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it.
Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it back in.
Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

The noise is coming from one of the fans in your computer. This most commonly happens with the CPU/GPU fan. If you are a DIY-er, then you can take apart the casing, and blow some compressed air into the exposed fan. This should clear out any dust or debris lodged in the case. If you aren't comfortable doing it by yourself, I recommend visiting a computer store or a friend that's good with a small screwdriver, and have them do this for you.

When pushed the on button i got lights and fans
if I understood correctly, you are trying to power on your laptop and nothing happens.
assuming that it worked before, try the follow:
1. try to turn it on with the power cord connected- if it works it means that your battery is dead
2. take out the battery and try to power it on with only the power cord
3. put back the battery and see if it works

Compaq presario v3000 laptop..doesnt recongize the hard drive
I beleive that you are trying to install retail versions of XP which will not be able to detect the Hard Drive in the Notebook as it is a SATA drive and Windows XP will not be having the drivers for SATA Hard Drives by default.
In this situation, I recommend you to check and disable the SATA Native support option available in the BIOS.
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab using the Arrow keys and select the option as Disabled next to SATA Native Support.
Press the F10 key again to save the settings done and exit BIOS.
Now, you should be able to use the Windows XP disk and install Windows XP Operating System in your Notebook without any issues.
By disabling the SATA Native Feature, the Hard Drive of the Notebook will be detected as a IDE Drive because of which we will be able to install XP without any issues.
Donot Re-Enable this feature in the BIOS again as the Operating System may not boot. Let the option next to SATA Native Support be Disabled.
Hope this helps...

I can't able to download file or view file from internet.as long as i start it my laptop automatically shutdowns.plz guide.
Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.
