Preferred Solution: hp windows 7 laptop not starting with hard reset

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700(I5 Core) and i am trying to factory reset to the default settings again because of the stupid problems i am having on the tablet.
Here is the problem i am trying to get into the BIOS which is the 1 step on the Acer website but for some bizarre reason when it is completely off i press the Windows button and the power button to get in to the BIOS as it says on the Acer Website but it keeps going to the start menu/desktop now instead of going to the BIOS. :/
I have factory reset/hard reset on my Acer Iconia W700 a couple times and i never had this problem before, i gone in to the BIOS no problem!!!
Can someone help me please?? Thanks!!!

I used the media profile to download Windows 10 to a USB and everything worked fine but now there's another problem. My laptop was working after reinstalling Windows, but then I shut my laptop over and went away for ten minutes or so and I've came back to a black screen with no display at all. The white LED is on so my laptop is on. It has around 40% charge in it as of typing this. The screen is unresponsive. Please help again but thank you for helping me fix the first issue.

A:Re: I hard reset my laptop, error occurred and now my laptop...

Hi @kirsty_mcq17, Thanks for the update on your situation. I understand that you are now having issues with the display being blank and the system unresponsive. Have you tried doing a hard reset since the system stopped responding? If the system will not boot into Windows normally, let me know if you get any errors. You can also try using Safe mode. Once you are able to log back in, please make sure you download the latest HP drivers and Windows Updates. From what you described, it sounds like the system may have gone into sleep or hibernate mode. This document will take you through troubleshooting possible issues with those features. If you feel this post has answered your question, take a moment to click Accept as Solution. Thanks!

My laptop was running slow so I thought I would do a hard reset since I didn't have any important files on it. So I reset it and I got a blue screen error, then a listing screen with a popup box saying there was an error or my computer restarted and I should press OK to install. I found a solution online to get past the popup box, I don't remember what it was though, but now my laptop is stuck in a state of constant reboot. It goes like this:Blue HP Logo with loading circle,Black screen,Blue HP Logo,Installing and configuring Windows install screen that doesn't move past 64%,And then black screen. This process constantly repeats.Please help.

My laptop won't start.  I have read through this blog, and did a hard reset (twice) and it still won't start.  I've had this issue in the past and have been able to solve it with a hard reset, but not this time.   What else can I do? The battery still had some "juice" in it as recently as last week, as I was able to use it without power for a few hours with no problems.   Thanks.  

A:Laptop still won't turn on after hard reset

Hi there @PaulaEmde,Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that your notebook is not powering up. I am happy to help with this. When it is plugged in do you see a charging LED lit?When you try to power it on, is there any sound of the unit starting, like the fans spinning or the sound of the hard drive spinning up?Do you have another power adapter available that you can try?Have you tried a different electrical outlet?Do you have a direct power connection, or are you using a power bar, or UPS? For now give these a try, and let me know the results and the answers to my questions. Hopefully one of these will resolve the issue, but if not, the answers may help to localize the cause.Using and Testing the AC Power AdapterHP Notebook PCs - Computer does not start (Windows 8)Improving Battery Performance (Windows 8, 7, Vista)

Hi, As long as the previous installation of Windows 10 had activated Ok after the upgrade from 7, you can just create your own Windows 10 installation media and perform a clean installation as detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: At the activation screen, select 'I don't have a Product key' - Windows will activate automatically once the installation has completed. Regards, DP-K

I've tried the hard reset 3 tines, I've replaced the battery with a new one, and still my laptop will not turn on. The white led light starts out white while plugged in, then turns amber, then turns white after a few minutes and starts blinking. If I attempt to power on the laptop while it's plugged in, the led light turns off and does not turn back on until I take the battery out, put it back in and plug the ac adapter in again. Nothing turns on, no fans and no keyboard lights. The only sign of power is the led light. Help please!

Yesterday my laptop suddenly stopped responding. I followed the tutorial and removed the battery and tried booting up the laptop using the charger. It doesn't work. I can see the charger port going from white to orange and then blank in quick succession. Then I tried keeping the battery and the charger plugged in for a long time without turning on the laptop. The charger remains orange for more than an hour before turning white.   I tried running the laptop after couple of hours and it boots up fine. But on the other hand, charger starts to act up again cycling through nothing, orange and white. So when the battery charge falls below 15%, it goes through low battery and then showing a bit of charge then again warning.

Hello, I was hoping maybe somebody could help me with this laptop. The issue I'm having is most of the time when I walk away from it and leave it on, upon returning the screen is just black, the computer is running but there is no response on the keyboard or mouse, which requires a hard shutdown and a restart. It then says it was not shut down properly, I start it up, and it runs fine until the next time I walk away and it does this freeze thing. I also want to note that it does not always do this, sometimes it sleeps like it should, but the problem is increasing in frequency.

A:Laptop screen goes black, requiring hard reset

No I have had this before its the drivers, the video card is going out, anything? Nobody on this forum has seen a laptop that would keep running but freeze on a black screen after going idle?

Dear HP, My laptop will not turn on anymore. Nothing happens. I tried the hard reset, by unplugging everything. Also battery and power cord. pressed on/off button for 30 seconds. When I put in the power cord. The led next to it, is not burning. Dear HP, do you have a suggestion what I can do to fix this problem? With kind regards,Richard

A:Laptop wil not turn on anymore. Hard reset is not working

If the power jack LED is not on we can figure it may be the power supply. It might not be putting out power. Just about any electronics shop can test its power output. How old is the unit? Still under warranty?

A:Sony Vaio laptop not starting; hard disk not responding

Hello ffrustrated and welcome to Seven Forums. Sorry to hear you're having all these issues. Couple of questions for you. ( Well, actually, several questions. )

1. When you got your Vaio did you buy it new?
2. Did you create the Vaio recovery disks when you first got the computer?
3. How long ago was it that you went to Sony to get it fixed?
4. Did the repair facility give any warranty on the repairs?
5. What was wrong with it?
6. With the machine turned off, can you access the Vaio Care software by clicking the ASSIST button at the top of your keyboard?

Sorry for all the questions but it might help us figure out the best course of action to get your machine up and running again.

Hi all,

I would like to hard reset my Toshiba Satellite because none of my programs (Except Safari) can't connect to the internet.

The fact is that I bought this Toshiba under Windows Vista and I would like to keep Windows 7 (that I bought directly online)

So can I keep Windows 7? And how can I reset this PC properly?

Thanks for helping me!

A:Hard Reset a Toshiba Windows 7 and keep curent OS

As long as you have the key for Windows 7 you should be fine. You could do an upgrade installation on top of Windows 7. However I do not recomend this. You still need to know your Windows 7 Key to do this.

I would Reinstall Vista and then Reinstall Windows 7.

Hi and welcome

We are going to need a ton more info before we can be of much use to you.

First thing we want to do is look in event viewer. Next time you freeze type eventvwr in search. goto the windows log>application tab. You want to look for errors ( they have red "X" in the left hand column). when you find them and you will, use the built in snipping tool (type snipping in search) to make screenshot and upload it using the attadchment icon( shaped like a paperclip) on the reply form

I tried for hours to hard reset my tablet. Nothing worked. In desperation I Googled and came up with a closed thread on this site dealing with my problem. I can't add to it to say how much I appreciate the help. If I am posting in the wrong place, please forgive a newbie.

To hard reset, first power off, then hold down the vol down button. Press the power button and hold down until a recovery screen pops up. Follow the prompts. Works like a dream.

As it almost 1 day left before 7/8.1 users will able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free, would you hard reset your computer before you upgrade, or just let it be as it is before you upgrade?

A:Hard reset your 8.1 PC before you install the Windows 10 free upgrade

I did not do a new install when I loaded the 10240 release on my desktop. Doing a new install on a PC; especially if you have lots of programs and data loaded, is not a trivial task.
Doing a new install on a phone is one thing; on a PC, I have never done it. Haven't had any major problems but I'm not a power user.
I guess it's up to you.

I've had my Toshiba Qosmio x505-Q8102 Laptop for 3 years now and yesterday the hard disk failed due to a vicous virus and unfortunately I've lost the windows 7 recovery disc, but I've managed to discover a backup recovery option involving pushing the F12 key on startup and resetting the laptop to its original factory settings I thought this solved all my problems and everything was fine but, the lid accidentaly got closed today and the screen went black when I finally opened it, but it would not respond to anything. So I shut down my Toshiba laptop and now I've gotten the error again  "A hard disk problem is preventing Windows from starting" I could try to restore it back to its factory settings, but that wouldn't solve the problem entirely it still will black screen at the windows login screen and I would have to restore it once again to its factory settings.

A:Windows Detected a Hard Disk Problem after factory reset?

 I'm afraid it doesn't sound good for that hard drive.  You could run Speccy which you can download from here and look at the SMART data for your drive.    After running it click File -> Publish snapshot... Copy and paste the link it gives you into your next post.  
 For more information about the drive, you could download hard drive diagnostics form the Seagate or Western Digital web site and run them.  I've used Seatools from Seagate a good bit.
 If you have to replace that drive, you'll probably lose the recovery partition, so be prepared for that.  Your user guide should have info on how to create the recovery discs if you haven't already done that.
Good luck.

I'm having a problem with my laptop not starting. What led up to this problem was when I downloaded a widows automatic update and then my computer got incredibly slow. I then set up the computer from factory default which involved losing all my info ect, it worked for a few days then it got slow again , so I figure I should try it again . This time however the computer would not reformat or Anything and so I tried to start it up normally ANd now it just restarts at the widows logo with the black background . Any help would be appreciated . The laptop is only a year old

We apologize for the inconvenience but windows didn't start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
Then it gives you the options to start in safe mode or last known good configuration etc.
I click on safe mode, last known good configuration, and start windows normally and by clicking any one of them it just comes back around to this screen and then gives the option to press F11 to emergency recovery but by pressing this will it lose all data on the computer? TIA

So I'm trying to factory reset my laptop to no avail. I am trying to do it through windows PC settings but the app will not open and instead, it gives me an error. I have uploaded the screenshot with the error. I'm unsure if its malware or something but I really want to reset everything.

My internet has been super slow and we already had a tech guy come in from my ISP which they found something but are unsure if its what's causing my incredibly slow speed. I'd rather just try and figure out if its something in my computer (I've tried running a few things that takes a long time to download but they had not detected anything).

I have this laptop I haven't used in a while but I forgot the administrator account password and I have no installation disc or RW disc. I've tried dozens of tutorials but none of them are working out! I can't activate the built in admin account because you need to run command prompt as administrator to do that, which isn't possible as I don't know the password. I've tried doing a system repair but you need an installation disc for that. Again, I have no RW discs or anything that I can use for that. Please help!

After earlier post I reinstalled WIN2000 Pro on backup old desktop, without first deleting incorrectly operating Win98.
Now Win2000 always restarts in Setup mode, requiring reentering Code Key.

What to do?

A:win2000 keeps starting in RESET mode

Boot to the windows 2000 CD and run the installation again.
Watch the screens.
When it asks which partition to install to,read the instructions to delete
Delete all the windows partitions on that drive.
If you have any storage partitions on there,don't delete them,or you will lose
your data.
If there are no storage partitions,delete all of them.
Then select the unallocated space for installation.
Continue the installation.
You should end up with 1 partition with windows 2000 and 98 will be gone.

So I have this problem and it happens once in a while maybe once a month One of my hard drives stops working it's like it gets deattached For example today I noticed that my download is limited to kB s what ever I tried to download Then I noticed that when I try to access the hard drive it's very slow Then I tried restarting starting with Weird dissapearing Windows drives hard and problem my computer but that didn't work And it never does Even unplugging Weird problem with Windows starting and hard drives dissapearing it from power didn't work That works sometimes I had to unplug my sata Weird problem with Windows starting and hard drives dissapearing cable from the motherboard and plug it in another slot That Weird problem with Windows starting and hard drives dissapearing works But the next time it happens it will happen in this sata slot But last few days whenever I restart my computer even when I don't have that problem with my hard drive I notice that it hangs on the post screen several more seconds and then it hangs on Windows logo screen forever I then have to unplug it from power and restart it again and it works then I checked all my hard drives with HD sentinel and couple more applications and no problems there I've changed several sata cables all new and the problem persists Any idea what could cause this issue

A:Weird problem with Windows starting and hard drives dissapearing

First thoughts
Is the OS on the primary partition, W7 hates being in second place.
If your specs are correct is there a 32/64 bit conflict.
Could be your RAM have you run Memtest (X8 passes)

And Marjan if this is the same comp that youve requested help for in the BSOD forum
run this tool, copy/paste the output

NO FURTHER HELP can be provided until you do so

I had a problem starting Windows after adding a new external backup hard drive - the computer froze at boot. I could boot into Windows with external hard drive disconnected. After getting into Windows, I could add the external hard drive which would show up in My computer and I could access it But this was not accceptable to me. I finally called Dell Support. She then guided me to the download section for my computer and selected the BIOS file and I made sure the external hard drive was connected,. We download the file, and flashed the BIOS in my computer. After rebooting, I could then boot into Windows with the external hard drive connected. The BIOS was now recognizing the external hard dive before the starting windows.

A:Solution to starting Windows with external hard drive connected

This can happen with any USB drive that has also been formatted to be bootable, by boot code remaining even after the installation files are removed.

If you have a USB flash or external drive that blocks the OS from booting, move the data off to wipe the drive with Diskpart Clean Command which clears the boot sector and partition table of all code, then repartition as a data drive in Disk Mgmt.

Just an update to my situation. I got the laptop working for a few days and everything was back to normal (including all the keys working). However, it suddenly shut off like the power had pulled. It now doesn't boot. The power lights will come on for about 2 seconds then the laptop shuts down to nothing again.

Is it worth paying the £52 just to get it diagnosed by Acer?

I've tried disk defragging and disk cleanup, as well as using CCleaner, as these were things I've seen recommended for similar problems.

Big mistake.

When I turn it on the Dell boot screen loads, but when it should be loading Windows there's just a blank black screen. I can still access the setup and boot menus. I was wondering if i could use these to start it in safe mode or to instruct a system restore.

Lee72 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Next time, repeatedly press F2 and when the diagnostics menu comes on screen, select the option to test the hard drive. Sounds like the drive might be failing. IF it passes those diagnostics, then the problem is more likely that the boot files have become corrupted. To help with that, we would need to know the version of the OS running on the PC (i.e., Win7, Win8x, or Win10).We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

A:acer laptop factory reset windows vista

Please post the model number of your computer. From your spec I assume it is still an Acer but we need the number in order to be sure we give you the correct reset procedure. I trust you realise you will lose everything of your own and be back to the as bought condition.Very often slowness is due to malware. I would recommend you first run these three free programs in the order given, rather than going straight for reset:AdwCleaner: Download button near top - not anything else on the page).Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) Download button near top - not anything else on the page).Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.MalwareBytes: Download button top right - not anything else on the page)Install and Run the program but before doing its Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds. If any of them find anything, please copy/paste the logs on here because even if the symptoms are cured you are likely to still have things lurking around that require further cleaning.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

My nephew arrived with his laptop that will not start up, it gets a blue screen with an error message saying that there is a missing file in the startup. All I want to do is set it back to factory conditions. It is a Monza T100 and I tried emailing Advent with no help forthcoming. I know it is generally a matter of pressing a number of keys together but so far it has evaded me. Any help would be well received

A:Reset Windows 8 Advent laptop to factory conditions

On Windows 7 tapping the F8 key during boot-up was popular with Advents - not sure about Win 8.I assume you have no Windows disk or restore disk. You might be able to get the latter from Advent.Keep watching for other ideas.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Basically, every time I try to reset/restore/refresh, the end result is a black screen with a mouse cursor. Logging in works fine, though it didn't before I ran some virus, malware, and adware scans. I just can't seem to get any of the clean slate features to work. Any idea what might cause this?

I can't get the laptop to boot past the glowing window logo that says "Starting Windows". It doesn't freeze it just hangs there forever. I tried booting into safe mode and it hangs at windows\system32\drivers\atipcie.sys and then restarts.

I don't need to save anything on the computer so easiest way to get it up and running will work. I don't have any discs to restore.

Thank you in advance.

Ugh. 3 Problems 1 Week.

First, a performance error, then BSODs now this?!

Anyway, the problem: While starting windows, the Starting Windows screen was stuck. Then tons of beeps. No order, just constant beeps. No key was stuck. I thought it was ram, so I took out and put back the ram, making sure it's auctually tight in the socket.

I'm starting to think the problems are connected somehow. Maybe failing ram?

Hi pelichjohn,
I would suggest you to run the Dell Diagnostics to check the hardware functionality. Power off the computer -> restart the computer, press 'F12' key on the Dell logo -> Select ?Diagnostics? from the boot menu.

So my father's laptop has been working without problems for 3 years now up until now.

It will no go beyond the "starting windows" loading screen and when I try to boot it in safe mode it will hang on loading "classpnp.sys".

After maybe a 100 reboots it started and it worked for a while only to crash again showing a bsod (of which I have a picture) which I hope will help some.

I have already tried multiple fixes from the internet by looking up things like "safe mode freezes on classpnp.sys" but none of them have worked.

startup repair says there is nothing it can repair.

I will try to add a bsod dump if I can get it to boot again.

Your thoughts are very much appreciated. Many thanks!

So I recently went to change my laptop from windows 8 down to 7. To do this I just had my installation disc, ran setup, and let it do its thing, resetting itself applying updates etc.
When I came back a few hours later it was stuck on Starting Windows with the logo not even pulsing. Restarting doesn't help, safe mode gets stuck at disk.sys and no matter what key I press I can't enter the BIOS.
I'm unable to launch my installation disc or a USB booter.

I can't find a solution I can even try anywhere! Can anyone help?

Try clicking on the Drive Options (Advanced) to delete all partitions, as fundamental to reinstalling any Windows OS as booting the installer.

I notice when you try UEFI mode there are no UEFI devices listed to boot. Try it again and this time put in the DVD or flash stick formatted only with Option One of UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows.

Either way you must delete all partitions using the Drive Options pictured in Steps 7/8 of Clean Install Windows 7 during install to begin, then either create new partitions if you have a scheme in mind (e.g. OS on one, Data on another) or create and format one large OS.

Thanks in advance and hoping for your advice.

A:Winxp Installation On Toshiba A105 Laptop Freezes On "setup Is Starting Windows"

Are you reloading from the Toshiba supplied recovery CD/DVD's? If so, the most likely cause is a scratched or dirty CD/DVD.

If it's a regular Windows installation CD, then it's likely to be either the scratched or dirty CD/DVD or a hardware compatibility that isn't covered in the standard XP installation media.

From my research your laptop has a 60 gB IDE hard drive - so the SCSI/Mass Storage driver won't be likely to help your issue here (often the Mass Storage device on laptops is actually the SD Card reader)

Have you tested the hard drive (with a bootable diagnostic available for free from most hard drive manufacturers)? That could be causing these issues also.

But then it started a oobe(out-of-the-box), and it didn't get past installing office 2010, so I presses ALT+F4 and came on the desktop, but a box popped up asking me to restart my pc with running oobe or something else. I picked the other thing and if I restart my pc now it gets stuck on "setup starting services" and a little box appears saying: the configuration couldn't been made and it's asking me to restart my pc, but it doesn't change anything. Any help is appreciated
