Preferred Solution: Pavilion g7 Won't Boot from DVD/CD

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.)

The question is a little different than the title. What are you trying to configure in the graphics?

HP Pavilion 6355 has the following issues:

1) Computer will not shut down by holding in power button. It must be "unplugged from outlet."

2) When power cord plugged in the light sequence on the tower reads, from left to right, yellow, green.

3) A Thumping sound comes from speakers, not the typical Bios Beeps.

4) Monitor is blank, yellow light indicator on.

5) Cannot open CD Drive, even manually.

This computer belongs to a friend of mine whose daughter uses it for High School work. She was working on it one day, received an error message, no, no, writing it down would be to easy , so she shut down using start-shutdown, and left for school. When she came back and resumed her work she was met with the above scenario.

Any ideas as to the most expeditious way to get to root of issue.

Hi I have a HP Pavilion laptop with AMD processor and Windows Vista. I want to reinstall Windows Vista but I can not get it to boot from CD. I went to the BIOS and changed the order so that the CD-ROM drive boots first, but it still didnt work. I upgraded the BIOS but it still didnt work. Any ideas? I want to format the hard disk and reinstall a clean Windows Vista copy. My laptop does not have a floppy.
The CD ROM does work!

My HP won't boot properly. I have checked the harddisk and done a new windows installation on the HDD. So the HDD and windows are ok.

When I try to boot the PC it dies and starts over again. I can choose safe mode etc and go into the recovery console but still no success.

What can be the problem? Motherboard? RAM memories??

Is there a way to check for errors on the motherboard or RAM from the recovery console?

Welcome to TSF....

How to perform a Repair Installation of Windows? XP.

Two things are needed here, just a bit of old technology, an ink pen and a piece of paper to write down any special settings that might have to be changed back after the repair-installation is completed.

Please Note: Performing a "Repair Installation" in this manner should not delete any Personal Files, it should 'repair' the core of the installation but to be safe with your data you should follow the next two paragraphs.

You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or external hard drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable. and do the following:


The details that follow require an above-average understanding of the technical topics involved. If you do not understand the Registry material presented here, either find a technically knowledgeable friend or do not attempt to repair your system Registry yourself. Improper changes in the System Registry can render all data on your hard disk inaccessible. :

Here is a link to a registry backup program that is absolutely fantastic it is called ERUNT and you would use this to backup the registry after running the repair-install procedure successfully.

(Remember to always keep a backup of two things: Your registry, and your data. You will never be sorry. ]

(The Windows? XP CD WILL be required for this procedure.)
( Recovery discs are NOT recommended with this procedure.)

A good set of instructions for doing a Repair-Installation are found on the following page and print out the pages of the site for reference further instructions on Slipstreaming Windows XP Home or Pro with any of the service packs are provided also other additional links that might be needed.

Please read the whole page on this web site to familiarize yourself with the procedure and all of the Warnings
The following links are provided for reference incase they are needed.

How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if Internet Explorer 7 is installed. ]

(How to Perform a Windows XP Repair Install with IE6 Installed. ]

Just be attentive and follow all of the on-screen prompts.

Just let it do its when you finally are at the Windows Desktop, power down the computer and re-enter the BIOS and change the Boot Configuration Order back to its original configuration.

I hope that this cures your woes.

Post back with the results, and if there are any other queries/concerns.

Hello, I have 2 notebooks. HP Pavilion DV6-3060EZ which i used and old HP Compaq nx5000. Both have same problem. They won't boot up, but I will talk just about DV6. My battery died and I can't start notebook just with ac adapter. So yesterday I bought new battery. And there is same problem.  When I press power button (with only battery plugged in, only ac-adapter, or both), led diods starts blinking, fan starts cooling and within 1 second it will shut down. I've read some articles on forum, i tried almost everything. I tried to disconnect ac adapter, battery, than 30 seconds hold power button and connect it back but it didn't work too.  But, three-times happens, that when I tried to turn it on, it worked well, I was at Windows on my desktop. But after 5 minutes it shuts down. Thanks for any advice,czDAWID

I have the following problem with my HP Pavilion m7570n. When I turn the system on if gives the following message: File is missing or corrupt
\windows\system32\config\system. Is there any way to fix this problem without using the HP restore from the partition? If I do have to do the restore from the partition, will I lose the photographs and emails on the computer? Thanks for any assistance?

A:HP Pavilion won't boot

Try this first -

If that does not work then do a repair XP install (not the HP restore)

I am pretty sure the HP restore partition will wipe everything out and put it back to factory fresh.

I need to reinstall Windows XP on my laptop. I have an external DVD and the recovery Disk. I already changed the boot order to boot from CD. But I am still unable to boot from CD. The external is working fine and the CD is O.K

A:HP Pavilion does not boot from CD

Hi Ossita
If the boot order is set to optical drive first, the laptop looks at its internal optical drive. Since it seems like the internal optical drive is not usable(?) then you need to set the boot order to USB or external device ahead of the hard drive.

My computer will not boot. The power supply light in the back turns on.  Fans turn on.  CD-ROM functions.  No USB power and no LED light on the front.  It does not come on at all when the computer turns on.  When I turn on the power, I hear nothing but the fans, the screen is blank and keyboard and mouse have no lights.  I have tested the monitor, keyboard and mouse and they are functioning.  I think it could be the BIOS or either a motherboard problem.  I need some help to narrow down the problem.

A:hp pavilion boot usb

1. Check if the USB device is really bootable, you can do that by checking the files on the root location or by trying to boot another computer using it.2. Start the computer and press 'esc' key to get into bios, then choose Boot Options or Boot Menu, then choose the USB device (Few BIOS have an option to enable/disable Legacy boot options, hence you have to enable it before you could change the boot sequence.Please note that the USB device needs to be on top of boot device list.

I can't figure out how to get into the bios of my HP Pavilion 500-314. When I boot the pc there is no screen that indicates what key I press to boot into bios, it just automatically goes into the HP loading screen.

A:How to boot up into the BIOS of HP Pavilion 500-314

Hi: Normally, you can tap the ESC key at the beginning of the HP splash screen to get a menu of options. From that list, select the F10 boot options menu. If that doesn't work, then see if you can get into the BIOS using the method described at the link below. Watch the video.  All brand PC's with W8.1 have this feature. If that doesn't work, unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions to offer.

I've got an older HP Pavilion 501n that I need to install XP Pro onto... It's currently running XP home, but I need to set it up onto a domain.

The machine won't boot to the CD... I've tried both XP and Debian install CD's, but neither work (so it's not the media).

If I let the machine boot to XP Home then try to run the XP Pro setup, it tells me it cannot continue becuase the existing version of Windows (XP Home) is newer than the one I'm trying to install.

My preference is to format the drive and start from scratch, but I can't do this if I can't boot to the CD.

Please advise,

I have an HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook that will not boot. It was left unplugged for several months because I don't use it very much. I am getting ready for a vacation and usually take it along but when I plugged it in to update the OS it started downloading and installing updates then shut down and now goes into a loop. Tries to boot, gets as far as loading the desktop then black screen and then starts reboot again.
It has the original bios version F.34. everything there looks good. Ran HD self test from bios then memory test. Everything checks out ok. Factory OS was Vista but is now running 7 Ultimate 64bit.
If I try to boot in safe mode with networking I get a BSOD. Safe mode will boot. Safe mode with command prompt will boot.
Any suggestions?

If you are able to see the Safe Mode options you are in the Advanced Boot Options.  One of the options there is Repair Your Computer.  Run this and see if it can resolve this issue.

There's no point messing with discs, recovery mode, memory, etc., it's clearly a hard drive problem. The bottle must have hit in just the right place. Try opening the underside & inspect the HDD connection, it's possible it was just knocked loose. If not, the HDD was damaged & will need to be replaced. Hopefully you have all your important files backed up."message saying PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable"Just wanted to explain this error message. The laptop is going thru the boot order. No HDD is being detected so it's attempting to boot off a network drive. No network drive is being detected so it's telling you to check the cable. I highly doubt there's a cable to check.message edited by riider

CDs, generally speaking, are not bootable.  You probably mean DVD media instead.  What type of "external cd" device are you using and how is it connected to the notebook? What kind of media are you using and what is on the media? What do you mean by the following statement? "delete all legacy boot key"

I did a hard reset on it (took the battery out ect.) and it booted and worked normally all day. This moring it again won't boot again but this time it beeps twice, waits a few seconds and then beeps twice again, five tinmes in total, and then it flashes the caps-lock LED twice, waits, and then twice again. It won't boot at all, even after a hard reset.  What does the beeping mean, what is the problem here?

I'm trying to boot my computer from a DVD, but I can't get to the boot menu or anything. The computer displays the HP logo and a message on the bottom saying to press ESC for startup menu. I try that, and nothing works. When the computer turns on, it has Windows 10 trying to recover itself, but this just leads to a blank screen. I also tried to press F10, but that didn't work either. What can I do to boot to the CD/DVD drive instead?

My laptop will not boot.  Screen stays blank.  All lights are on. Num lock and CAP-lock blink twice.  I have removed the battery, memory, HD and all accessorys.  same error.

A:HP Pavilion dv7-3067nr will not boot

    Hi! If the caps lock is blinking twice it mean the bios is corrupted You can try to rollback the bios, press and hold the windows key then press hold tas well the letter B, while holding those keys power up the pc If nothing happens, try to power on again but immidiately tap ESC repeatedly , startup menu will appear on the screen. If you dont have the start up menu, try to power on again then immidiately tap F2 or F10 In F2 there's an option BIOS management,  choose the option ROLLBACK IN F10,  set the bios into defaults by pressing f9 , then f10 again to save the changes and reboot the system.   Thanks!

I have a laptop I picked up as a spare from a friend. It turns out everything is okay but her hard drive and since I'm too cheap to buy a hard drive I'm trying to use a spare 200gb 3.5" IDE drive I have through USB. When I begin booting into Windows however, it bluescreens and requires a restart. It gives me a stop message (0x0000007B) which I found out means it is have trouble booting from the drive.

The laptop is an HP Pavilion zv6000 and the hard drive is a Western Digital (If that makes a difference)

What do I need to do to boot windows from this device? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Since yesterday, i have been unable to access my pc with a constant loop of the HP logo with a spinning spiral loading constantly or "preparing automatic repair" and sometimes being eventually lead to an error message saying something like "your PC ran into a problem" and that it needs to restart.
anyone have any idea of how i could fix this?
by the way my PC has no disk drive.
i would be very grateful if i could have some feedback.

A:HP Pavilion wont boot, cant access anything PLEASE HELP!

The very first step you should do is to confirm whether the issue is caused be hardware or software reason. I would recommend running the built in diagnostic test as the first stepp.
1. Press Esc during power on to interrupt booting and display "Startup" menu.
2. Press F2 or select Diagnostic from menu to execute a diagnostic test. Some newer HP models may have separate testing routines to test HDD, RAM etc. Make sure to run all of them. Also make sure to run the "Extended/Full" version of HDD test.
Let us know the result with next reply.

Does anyone know if it is possible to change the bios boot preferences to a USB device in a HP Pavilion desktop pc? (Bios 3.14)

At first glance there appears to be no option to change the preferences to boot from a USB device; but since I'm a novice and my computer is totally new and up to date, surely it's possible to boot from a USB device, is it?!

The bios only has the option to boot from a cd/dvd drive or a hard drive. There are other options but they are disabled, such as a floppy drive.

I'd be really grateful for any help.

Error code = 0x2" I have reinstalled Bios and ran a battery health check and it does not fix the problem.

Sounds like it maybe a bad battery. It sounds like its surging and has fried the adapter now as well. How old is the system? Do you have SP1? That might cause a problem, its unlikely but it could be.

To, I installed Windows 10 on my hp Pavilion g6 Windows 8 laptop last night however I came downstairs this morning to find that it is now stuck in the hp logo boot up screen. It is just the logo on the screen with no boot up circle or anything. I tried to reset the laptop and do a system recovery. However every time I try, it fails to even start the recovery process. I also tried booting it up in safe mode but that has the same issue. Please help.

Reseat the memory module(s) to troubleshoot the memory modules:Put one module in the soDIMM slot closest to the middle of the notebook and then try booting up. Try them one at a time to see which one has failed. If your notebook has only one memory module, then it has probably failed.

I'm trying to install Win 7 from a (know good working) USB flashdrive. The desktop is a USB Pavilion Slimline PC 400-314 with WIN 10 already on it. I've attempted to go into the Boot Menu (using Esc) to access the Boot Menu but I don't see the USB in there (see attached).

Also tried going into BIOS & have made USB Hdd the first but still no luck (see attached). It just boots normally into Win 10. Once in Win10, it see's the USB drive. I tried both the front & rear USB ports. I know the drive is good because because I just installed/booted from it yesterday on another machine.

I've also made sure all USB ports are enabled unless there is some setting preventing a boot from USB?

Any assistance appreciated. Thanks.

A:Unable to boot from USB Pavilion Slimline PC 400-314

As most newer computers do, you have a UEFI Bios. Restart the computer and press F10 to Boot into Setup (Bios) and look for Secure Boot If it is enabled using your arrow and Enter key Disable it or change it to Setup Mode.
Now at the Boot tab, scroll down to Legacy Boot Sources select it and press F10 to accept. With the USB Flash drive in, Under Hard Drive Group, you USB Flash drive should now be listed. or just USB Hard Drive, Select it and Move it to First Boot Device. Save and Exit.
Or, if you cannot make changes in the Bios, Create a Bootable UEFI USB Flash drive with your Windows ISO using Rufus in my signature.

A:HP Pavilion ze4900 doesn't boot up

Try this sequence of steps

Remove any attached devices (usb etc)
Remove both the Battery and the Power Adaptor
Hold down the ON button on the laptop for 30 secs (this will disperse all internal voltage)
Put the Power Adaptor in only (ie leave the battery out)
Try turning on

If it works
Turn it off, and put the Battery back in
Turn it back on

We recently changed out the keyboard and the ac jack. The battery is being recharged with the yellow light on! There is not any power whatsoever! It won&#8217;t even try to come on! Any suggestions, we thought about doing a CMOS reset! We have already done the whole, take the battery out and reset thing! Any help will be greatly appreciated. By the way, the last time we used this computer it worked, but that was like two years ago! It just had problems with the power jack. Maybe we did something taking it apart? My husband was very careful. We just don&#8217;t want to spend a ton getting it fixed. Also, how do you tell if the motherboard is bad? Thanks, Misty

My 4.5-year-old HP Pavilion P7-1074 desktop was down last week. Planed to get a replacement on Black Friday or Boxing Day. But I do need to run some programs inside the desktop's hard drve. So I attatched my desktop's hard dive to my HP Pavilion 15 Notebook's USB port with an Enclosure. The laptop could recognize the external hard drive as SYSTEM (F 62.2 MB free of 97.9 MB, OS (G1.11 TB free of 1.35 TB, and HP_RECOVERY (H 1.33 GB free of 11.0 GB. But I could not find out the programs I wanted to run. I went into the BIOS to set the Boot order to Boot from USB first, but I could not get the result I expected. The laptop always boots from its own hard drive. I tried all three USB ports, no one worked. Could somebody please help me?Thanks a lot!

Further Details:
Motherboard: 441534-001
Processor: AMD
GPU: nvidia geforce 7600
OS: Win 7 -64 bit
Ram: 4GB
Should i change my motherboard now or do u think there would be any other minor problems that can be looked upon.....pls help

A:Hp Pavilion dv9000 wont boot

Changing the motherboard on a laptop is not really an option. Cost wise it will probably be about the same as buying a new laptop.
I have had laptops labelled dead by repair shops when all that needed doing was to re seat some connector. Link to video on how to take the laptop apart
Fair warning: it's going to take MUCH longer than the 15 min of the video to dismantle it and putting the thing back together is tedious and delicate work

To start, I am reading through the tutorial by BRINK regarding this "How to....". I printed the related topics so I have it in front of me and also reading the replies from other members. Well after reading about 25 pages of the 191, I am starting my own thread. Am I out of line here? If so, advise me and I'll join the mentioned thread and mark this one as resolved. If it's ok to proceed with this thread, I'll respond with the issues I at hand.

If you want to run XP, simplify the process and virtualize it. XP runs perfectly in a virtual machine, and your system is more than capable of doing so.

Dear HP community, i am am currently having an issue with my computer of 5 years. I have been rejecting the Windows 10 update for as long as I could but ultimately it did a self update and shortly after updating, I was unable to even start up my computer as I kept getting stuck at the loading page with two errors "error with FAT32 hard drive" and "error with NTFS hard drive". To which, the subsequent message would be "we are attempting to resolve this issue by restarting your computer" and I would be stuck in the infinite loop where my computer cannot start upi would appreciate any and all forms of help as this is highly frustrating, given that my school term has started and I am suddenly without a computer. Please help! Thank you. RegardsYi Xiang

Hi I burned two ISO files(Memtest86+ & latest DBAN 2.2.8 CD bootable ISO software ) onto two different blank CD-Rs on two different ocassions by using the in-built Windows burner in my system, also used Cyberlink ISO file burner/Mount as Virtual drive.Tried booting from CD by following Step 1 to 4 given in this MS link . After that clicked Select a USB Device, then boot from Internal DVD/CD Drive, then OK. It took some time to process & after that I got this screen:   When I entered BIOS Setup clicking F10 and there on Boot Device options, I got this screen:  I'm not able to understand why I can't boot from any CD. Could anyone please help me out. Thanks  very much in advance Visruth

Hi Visruth, Thanks a lot for your kind response! My laptop shipped with FreeDOS, and in the beginning even I had this issue, but for me it turned out that the USB was not bootable.  For me the best software to make a bootable disk is - Its free and open source, and its really light. Have you tried booting via the DVD on other PCs. Because if other DVD/CD are working on your laptop, there might be an issue with the DVD that you are using. Have a great day ahead! Regards,Brahmnoor

Connect a  different USB  keyboard to one of the PC usb 2.0 ports at the rear of the PC instead of the current keyboard. Disconnect the hard disk from the sata port and then press the power button. What happens?  The issue you are having could have been just coincidental to the time that you happened to upgrade to Windows 10. Your PC is a 2012  model and your Pegatron motherboard may have just ceased to function.  Unfortunately, It does happen.

 I can not boot the the system in to safe mode. Esc, F1, F2, F8 all boot normal .  Control Panel -> Admin Tools-> Ssyetm Configuration will not let me se Safe Mode! Any ideas? Thasnk in advance, Paul

A:Cant Boot Hp Pavilion Desktop in Safe Mode

Getting into Safe Mode sometimes is tricky.  Depending on the Windows version, sometimes it won't show you a chance before it is too late.  What I tell people - as soon as the computer starts to start, start tapping F8.  Do not hold or only tap once but tapping about every 1/2 second on F8 until Windows gives you a choice to pick safe mode, normal start, previous good configuration ETC.  Then pick just safe mode by scrolling thru the coices until that is highlighted.  The hit enter. If you get the Windows is starting screen, it is too late. You missed the chance.  Plan on starting over.

SherialT Welcome. Sounds like you have a very frustrating problem. Seems like the computer is trying to boot from an outside source. First thing you should try is to shutdown your computer.Press and hold the "Windows" key and the "B" key, and then press and hold the Power button.After 1-3 seconds, release the buttons. Your computer should beep several times and then start a BIOS Update. Let your computer go through the process of updating (just a few minutes) and your computer should start up. If this doesn't solve your problem, come on back. I have a couple more ideas if this doesn't work. Jendyruth
