Compaq Evo N1020v - Booting Problems

Threaded View
Just finished building one working Compaq Evo N1020v laptop from two
'scrapped' machines and everything is working Ok apart from the fact that it
will not boot into Windows of any variety (Win98SE/XP Pro and Vista RC2)
with the AC Power connected.

It will boot in battery mode Ok (fortunately it still holds about 30-45
minute charge) and everything works as it should when I connect the AC power
after Windows has booted.

Anyone any suggestions as to what is causing this?

Try updating your BIOS.

Thanks for your reply and indirectly your suggestion did help. I checked the
BIOS and it is up to date, but having gone in to check the version I played
around with a few of the settings and disabling the Intel Speed Stepping
appears to have fixed the problem and when I turn it back on the problem

What are the implications of disabling Speed Stepping permanently? I'm not
at all that familiar with Intel as all my computer builds in the past have
been desktops with AMD processors.
