Having problems with your HP Compaq Evo n800c Notebook ?

Incomplete Boot-up of Compaq Evo N800c running Windows XP Professional.

\015 The unit developed this problem after it was shut down in Stand-by mode by closing the lid. Even with the lid closed, it kept repeatedly starting-up and shutting down. This continued even after the AC adapter was removed. Finally the laptop battery had to be removed to stop this repeated momentary starting-up and shutting-down of the unit, as holding down the \342\200\234Power button\342\200\235 (to force complete shut-down) was ineffective. The current behavior of the unit is summarized below.\015\012\015\012The unit typically starts-up on plugging-in the AC Adapter into the DC Power jack on the rear, WITHOUT even pressing the Power button, and typically shuts down in a FEW SECONDS, usually just on reaching the Compaq logo screen - which displays the Name(email), Contact(Phone no.), and F10=ROM-based Set-up.\015\012If while starting-up (as described in point 1 above), the Power button is repeatedly pressed, together with a few clicks of the F10 key, the unit SOMETIMES proceeds to the ROM-based \342\200\234Computer set-up\342\200\235 screen and remains \342\200\230ON\342\200\231 for at least FEW MINUTES, so I\342\200\231m able to go through most of the Menus of the ROM-based \342\200\234Computer set-up\342\200\235, and I\342\200\231m even able to make some changes in the settings. This included making changes in the settings under \342\200\234Boot Options\342\200\235 and \342\200\234Device Options\342\200\235, of the \342\200\234Advanced\342\200\235 menu, just to see what all was possible.\015\012From the ROM-based \342\200\234Computer set-up\342\200\235, it is also possible to run the HDD Self-Test Options, and the QUICK (2 minute) test usually completes successfully, but the Comprehensive (36 minute) test does not complete successfully, as the unit typically shuts down on reaching 20-30% completion.\015\012In case of Start-up with repeated pressing of the Power button, (as in point 2 above), but without any clicking of the F10 key, the unit SOMETIMES proceeds to a BLANK BLUE screen (with only the mouse cursor showing), and then shuts down within 3-4 minutes without reaching the Log-in screen.\015\012 \015\012Please advise urgently possible device failure and availability of any detailed component-level schematics for this laptop model. \015

I have an E-Machine desktop PC that is failing to boot. It is running on windows 2000. When it starts booting, it says that one of the files needed for booting is missing. It further tells me to run a setup disk to repair the missing file. The problem is that when I run a setup disk, just before it displays the window that prompts me either to press Enter for OS setup or R for repair, it is presenting with a blue screen. I tried to use other setup disks, no change. I also tried to scan the hard
