Hi there. Bought a stellite pro sp6000 off ebay recently. all seemed to be running fine, clean XP install....great. the problem I hit was when, after disconnecting from the net at home (ethernet connection), now it will not turn on. the green power led comes on, but thats all, nothing on screen, no beeps, no power to dvd drive (wont even eject). If its any help, the last update to install was an optional update to .net framework 3. as far as i know, that was the last update i needed.
Please help!!! Thanks.
Hi, regarding your problem, kindly removed your batter and use only the power adapter to AC.
If is the same, your mainboard may be damage or it has a problem. You better bring it to one of the supplier or business patner of HP who provide for warranty claim

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.
It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.
I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.

I have encountered the same problem with a repair to XP PRO Setup - repair due to a virus, where I didn't want to reinstall from scratch because of the programs that were already installed on C drive. The quickest way to circumvent is to hit Cancel (ensure you have a USB or PS2 mouse - wireless will freeze) repeatedly when provided with this prompt. You will receive other error messages prompting for other things later the process. With hitting Cancel at all of these prompts, Win XP Pro installed fine, and I was able to re-install the latest drivers for the motherboard and video card after Windows XP booted up.
Well once you did a clean install over all of Dell drivers etc etc. You wiped out the restore artion that was on the computer. You have to go to Dells website and under the support tab look for the Nic card that you have inside the computer.
Well, I'm amazed a C640 runs Vista at all.
There's no reason to buy a new hard drive, except for the novenlty of having one loaded with Vista on a C640.
It's a great laptop, and runs Windows XP PRo perfectly well.
If you have one od the Dell XP install disks, just boot from it, and whenever it finds the vista install, hit excape, then at the next screen hit "D" to delete the partition, then choose "quick format", and load the Operation system.
If you need an install disk,let me know.
