On that model,there are a few things that can cause your problem.None are simple and the most common is the GPU (video chip) has lost contact due to over heating.
The cost of repairing it, if you could find someone willing ,Would be way more than one that old is worth.

Troubleshooting - Power

No Power
Make sure that the words "Nintendo GameCube" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
Make sure the Nintendo GameCube has good ventilation. For best results, make sure that the system rests on an open, flat surface. Avoid operating the Nintendo GameCube while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space.
Check the vents on the sides of the Nintendo GameCube for a build-up of dust. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vaccum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC adaptor (see below).
Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Nintendo GameCube (the port is labeled DC 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet.
Press the power button on the Nintendo GameCube and check to see that the red power light on the top of the Nintendo GameCube illuminates.
If this fails, try resetting the AC adapter.
Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, memory cards, and all controllers), hookup cables, and the AC adapter from the outlet and Nintendo GameCube.
Let the system rest for about 45 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that the cords on the controllers, AC adaptor, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables (or RF Switch) are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
After the 45 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and wall outlet. Press the power button to see if the system works.

If the system works, turn the power off and plug ONE accessory into your system, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you put a particular accessory in (GameDisc, controller, Memory Card), there may be something defective with that accessory.
If the power does not come on, a repair will be necessary. Because it is not possible to determine which item (Control Deck or A/C Adapter) needs repair, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
If the power is continually shutting off after aprox. 30 minutes, listen to hear if the fan is working while the system is powered on. If the fan is not running, the problem will continue (Nintendo GameCube is avoiding overheating) and the system will need repair.

Power Light Flashes
If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair.
Power Light Shuts Off
If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.

The issue might be with the hard drive. I recommend you to test the hard drive.
If the hard drive test fails, then it is confirmed that the issue is with the hard drive of your notebook.

SOURCE: Acer aspire one, won't wake up from sleep mode, screen blank

I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.

How do i turn the wifi on my compaq nc8000 after installing the wireless card


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

My laptop sounds like it's running but the screen is black and the green power light and the blue wifi light is on. If I disconnect the battery it sounds light it's off but the green and blue...


If the screen is black but it's making all the right sounds that you'd normally get when the computer was working, then you can, in all likelihood, connect the NC8000 to an external monitor, do a cold start, and work off an external monitor for now. And you have also isolated the problem to be "up top" (the screen area)

If it just turns on but outputs nothing to the LCD or the external monitor, then it's probably trouble. I'd remove the memory and reseat them. If that doesn't make a difference, then you'll have isolated the problem to be "down below" (the motherboard, in all likelihood).

Hope that makes sense...

Compaq nc8000 won't start please i wont to know the problem on the mother board after swicth on it will go off after 4 second and it wil not even show anything on the screen and the fan too will go off.


It could very likely be the motherboard causing the problem, in which case you're best off just getting a new computer rather than replacing or repairing the board, but it could also be a power issue.

Try turning the computer on with the battery installed and the AC adapter disconnected, and then try it with the AC adapter connected and the battery removed -- does it show the same symptoms both times?

My nc8000 shuts down after few seconds and starts after power plugged in or battery inserted


Hi Turecki, It's a moderately easy fix for this common issue with HP/Compaq Laptops. Simply go to ebay, purchase an "inverter" board built for a NC8000 laptop can range from $10-$50 just purchase one with a minimum 6 month warranty. Its about a 0.5 inch by 15 inches. Unscrew all of the tiny phillips screws located and hidden behind black rubber covers on the LCD screen. Pop off the plastic LCD cover and replace the inverter board located at the bottom of the LCD (plug & play). Put it all back together and voila...problem fixed.

Have fun and practice some repair skills.
