Re: HP nx6110 (PT604ET) Laptop - Spares/Repair

I spoke to my HP dealer whom I buy servers from, and an even easier fix is
to take the keyboard/case and using some thick rubber/pastic to place it on
top of the Intel chip - with the pressure of the keyboard on the plastic,
forces the connection on the Intel chip to be made. You may get a slight
bulge on the keyboard, but heard few people have managed to get the laptop
working for a few years.

Hi all,

Up on eBay with just over 2.5 days to go is my HP nx6110 laptop, for
spares or repair. It's developed a fault common to this model where it
won't detect the hard drive and hangs after POST, refusing to boot from
hard drive or CD.

Anyone who can re-seat surface mount chips can fix this, according to many
threads on HP's support forums.
