Hello all,

I recently picked up a hp-compaq model #nc6400 laptop from a guy. He said it started having a problems and he "formatted" the hard drive using disk sanitizer in BIOS. It had no OS on it when I got it, had NLTDR not found error. I'm attempting to install WinXP on the system. It copies all the files and restarts, and begins installing, only to BSOD during installation with a watchdog.sys error.

From what i've read, this is related to drivers. I've located the relevant drivers for this sytem, but what I don't know how to do is to get them onto the system, seeing as I can't even boot into safe mode. Is it possible to slipstream these into a bootable WinXP install disc?
Thanks to anyone who took the time to help me out!

Have you tried formatting with the Windows CD before you install, ie. deleting the partitions and creating a new one?

Good Morning, I just bought a hp/Compaq nc6400 running windows 7 professional. doesn't seem like a terrible machine but wondering what people think about the hp/Compaq nc6400 laptops. I bought this since someone stole my MacBook pro and needed a computer. I am more used to apple and actually enjoy using apple products but couldn't find a decentally priced one on craigslist in my area. windows 7 doesn't seem too bad but I left windows when vista arrived and generally avoided any form of windows after that and now I have a windows laptop again...

I just bought a refurbished Compaq NC6400 and since it had been on the shelf for over a month, the battery was fully discharged. I put the notebook on charge (almost 5hrs now) and the charging indicator is still in amber (charging). Is this normal? The battery pack is more than warm too.
ps. I've kept the notebook turned off while it's been charging.

My 1200 Athelon PC bit the dust on the hottest day this summer.
I assumed a heat problem and replaced the heat-sink and fan on the motherboard-didn't help.
I replaced the power supply a 350) with new one (a 450) didn't help.
PC is now at the repair shop-I am assuming the worst and expect a choice of a new PC with my old hard drives moved over or a new motherboard and chipsets.
What cost range should replacing the motherboard and chips be?

The existing PC has 3 1/2 and 5 1/4 (yea no comments) and a 20 gig HD plus a 120 gig added, a scanner and 2 printers.
I am hoping to salvage the info from both the hard drives. Maybe ghost the 20 and move the 120 to whatever system I end up with.
Any opinions would be appreciated.

A:Compaq Motherboard HELP PLEASE...

SkuZz, this is a bit difficult to explain, but:

That connector is 'laminated' to form flaps over each wire that goes into it. Take a pin and prize the flap up while pulling the wire out. You'll be doing this from the front end of the connector, the side that plugs into the M/B - right where you see the shiny ends of the wire sockets exposed. Try with it, you''ll see what I mean.
You can then re-insert the wires into holes in the connector that will corespond with pins on the M/B.

When I did figure it out, it was so simple...

It is an nforce board.
Runs 266 FSB
It will support Amd up to 2600+ with NO changes, just plug the new cpu in...
Update the chipset from Compacq, free download, latest is in Oct. of 03.

I put a 2400+ and a radeon 9600 Pro in and ran 10000 3d marks with it, no overheat, to ovewrclocking anything, so this board isn't a big mystery to me and I hope it helps out you guys...Do not fool with the jumpers and use the same Bios and you won't have any problems...

Well if it says "Unrecognized USB Device" then its plugged in right because otherwise XP wouldn't even see it.

If you haven't installed SP2, do so, that usually solves any USB related problems. Worked for me.

My Compaq x1002us (bought in Jan 04) has a defective motherboard.

I gathered as much from HP that I don't need a new processor (Intel Mobile Pentium 4-M processor - 1.40GHz; 400MHz front side bus, 1024KB Internal level-2 cache).

It costs over $500 to get a new OEM one from HP and I need to find another solution to this because by the time I pay someone to change it, I am looking at close to $700...ouch!!

If anyone else has encountered this problem or has figured out a nifty solution, I would sure appreciate it.

Thank you.

I would try another power supply first, they fail a lot more often then motherboards and the indicator LED isn't always a sure thing.

If you do need to replace the motherboard it needs to be the 100% identical replacement motherboard for a Compaq Presario SR123ONX or the connections and software will not work.

A:Compaq Presario SR1000 motherboard upgrade

If you want to upgrade, along with a new motherboard, you will need new memory, CPU, CPU cooler and power supply at a minimum. Basically you are building a brand new computer. As cases are relatively inexpensive I would also go with a better case that has more cooling as it will be needed for a "gaming" system. Factory PC cases are not usually designed with the cooling needed for a gaming PC. Also consider Compaq Presario computers (and cases) are the "low end" or "inexpensive" line from HP.

I'm repairing a Compaq 6000 with the N1996 motherboard. It has a two pin jack for the power supply fan which also affects the CPU fan. The pwr supply is bad and I placed all the components in another tower. I read some threads of others who experienced the same problem. Did anyone resolve this issue? I read a thread from Dcrewchief--it stated that you should adapt from the two pin to a four pin straight out the power supply. I did not quite understand what was meant by this; so, if anyone has a good answer please let me know.

I have a very old Compaq Presario (model 6LPXE1 from the 6000T series). It has a Compaq 07E8h motherboard with an Intel P4 2.26GHz currently installed. I would like to upgrade to an Intel Pentium 4 3.0E Prescott 3.0GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket 478 89W Single-Core Processor - OEM. How can I determine if this CPU is compatible with my motherboard?

I am attaching some system specs from ASTRA32, but the demo version report is truncated. Let me know if any other information would be useful.

A:What socket 478 processors are compatible with my Compaq 07e8h motherboard?

I think that the Intel 845G chipset supported at most a 533MHz FSB, not 800MHz like that CPU you're thinking of buying. I'm not sure but the chances that it'll work on your motherboard are slim.

Hi, Need help in putting jumpers on Motherboard #120694 it's a Compaq presario 5340 Desktop tower, All jumpers are missing. A pic of the motherboard would be great. I would really appreciate the help, Thanks.

A:Jumper setting for Compaq Presario 5340 Motherboard

That machine was sold in 1999. Compaq used mainly Asus and some Lite-On boards. Examine the board and see if there is a manufacturers name on the board. Although the board would be manufacturer proprietary what Compaq did in those days was usually use a standard board, and change the BIOS.

If you can find a manufacturer name and model on the board you may be able to backtrack and find the equivilent retail board that they used before modification.

With all the parts you are looking at changing,you would probably
be better off buying a new computer case and building from
If you change the motherboard and cpu,you won't be able
to use the oem operating system that came with your computer.
Buying a case can keep you from having to deal with the
proprietary connections in the compaq.
You should be able to use the drives from the compaq.
That way you can use whatever motherboard fits your new case.

Well you should be able to access the CMOS Bios by using either the delete, F1 or F2 keys (sometimes f10). Then under the Bios you should see the Boot Sequence and be able to change it from there. But either way, you should be able to get past the Compaq splash screen. Try setting your boot sequence and see if that helps.

Try a power drain.
1. Unplug power cord
2. Hold power button in for 60 seconds or more then let go
3. Plug in power cord
4. turn on the power and try to boot to setup (BIOS)

If it enters the BIOS then you should be able to just press F5 to reset to defaults and then F10 to save and exit. The PC should work now.

However, if after the power drain you still can not get in the BIOS than there is a MAJOR problem which would require some type of repair.

A:How can I bring the cost of this rig to under $600

I've just added everything to my shopping cart, including the Hyper 212 which was only $5 more at Newegg. It looks to be a total cost of $620 for everything listed. I did notice one thing, AMD recommends a 500W PSU with the HD 7850, the list has a 450W PSU chosen. Other than the 250GB drive, everything else looks good to me. I personally wouldn't spend $60 on a 250GB HDD. For $25 more you could have 4 times the capacity. I know you are looking to save a buck or two but sometimes shortcuts have too high a cost.

If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Who is selling the key? A user or a business? I wouldn't buy from a user and I'd be very careful of a business.

i leave my computer on 24/7. It has a 400 Watt power supply and i have 1 17" LCD LG flatron monitor which i physically turn off during the night. I was wondering what exactly it would cost each month on my power bill. It cost 6 cents per killowatt per hour.

A:How much will it cost a month


Power to run HD: 400 Watts

Energy = Power * Time
Energy = 400W * 744 (31 days)
Energy = 0.4kW * 744
Energy = 297.6kWh

Cost = 297.6 * 6cents
Cost = 1786cents / $17.86 approx


Power to run screen: 40 Watts

Energy = Power * Time
Energy = 40W * 434 (31 days with screen off for 9hrs while you sleep)
Energy = 0.04kW * 434
Energy = 17.36kWh

Cost = 17.36 * 6cents
Cost = 104cents / $1.04 approx


Total Cost per month(approx) = Cost of Running Screen + Cost of Running HD
Total Cost per month(approx) = $1.04 + $17.86
Total Cost per month(approx) = $18.90

Hope that helped?

They would most certainly do the job; but it'll be pricey. At least $2,000+ from what you've stated so far(more probably). Also, it maybe was just me, but I had a bad experience with the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium. Probably an isolated incident but at least one other person had the exact same problem where IRQ's were messed up and hogged up to 50% of the CPU.

Just a heads up.

I was thinking of adding memory, but then I thought I'd wait a while because I need to conserve el dinero. However I'm a little worried that the cost of memory will go back up to a dollar or more a meg like it was a while ago. Any thoughts as to the future cost of memory?

A:cost of memory

There have been some supply and demand fluctuations, but the trend has been generally down. Very old types of RAM and super state-of-the-art stuff can be a little pricey, but standard stuff isn’t going back to a buck a Mb.

My Win XP has got corrupted, plus there might be some undetected virus/spyware on my system, so the best plan is to completely wipe and reformat my hard drive and reinstall XP.
Problem is I haven't a clue how to do it, and the local computer shop say they'll do it for ?40 (64 dollars).
Does that price sound right to you?

Just looked on the MS site. The cost of an upgrade has now increased to:-

Windows 8 now costs ?99.99

Windows 8 Pro now costs ?189.99

Glad I bought mine earlier.

A:cost of Win 8 upgrade

I paid $69.95 Australian for mine in a store. But underneath the $69.95 price sticker, I found THIS. I had a fair
idea that we'd be paying through our noses for it here, and it seems that I wasn't wrong.

So I'm very pleased that I took advantage of the lower price. Paying $400 for it is out of the question at present.

Okay, I have fixed all of my software/hardware/user problems. When I started all this, with a REAL copy of XP Home SP2 that I bought from newegg...., I called MS and they were kind enough to re activate my OEM key. Well, it seems I have worn out my welcome with them. Hey, I have to give it to them, all but one drive and the case are new. much will it cost for a new key since I had a real version of XP in the first place? Will they make me buy it all over again? Cheapest I can find right now is $78. I'm hoping they will reactivate for like $10. Am I asking too much from the greedy?

Please let me know!

A:Xp Whats It Cost?

Call Microsoft they should re-activate it for free they have for me several times, all they are looking for is a good reason from you.

This is not advertising!  Just FYI.
I just know what it is like not to have a lot of available money to spend.  A these days even young school kids are expected to have computers... not easily afforadable for all families.  I just happened to discover this article and it is FYI not, an advert.  I mean, even, the article itself is not advertising but, rather just informing.  That's my goal, also, just to make people aware.

I was just wondering what you guys think is a good price range for a nice gaming rig. I probably plan on using newegg to get the parts. But I just need an idea on how much money is really needed for a good gaming comp.

A:how much should it cost for good gaming pc?

To make a Very Powerfull reliable computer it'll cost you about 2000 or more..
but if you want a good Mid range PC which will also run all your games with great frame rates its gna cost you abotu 1600 to 1700

but if ur talking hardcore like 7800 GTX sli amd 4200+ and stuff that'll cost u about 2800 or more

From what I've seen around here it'll run you anywhere between $45-$95 per hour. Not too bad if you ask me. Things might be cheaper or higher depending on where you live though.

I see many threads where people wish there was this or that additional function in Windows I suspect that those same people do not realize the implications of cost additional an The function of such an undertaking For one it would add additional bulk and errors to the operating system But then it also adds significant cost I The cost of an additional function do not The cost of an additional function know the cost structure of Microsoft but from my experience of developing and managing operating systems I recall that each line of code cost In that the cost of the people that write the actual code is only The rest is management architecture planning and business management publication integration release maintenance etc etc A development group walks a fine line between the list of desirable function the cost the doability and the time constraints I assume the windows developers do the best job they can but they are not free to do everything they might like to do Maybe that is a thought to keep in mind next The cost of an additional function time someone asks for this or that function
