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 HP Pavillion that when I turn it on, all I get is a white screen on the monitor. I tried to boot with the original recovery discs and while the cd drive spins, the light just goes to yellow and nothing happens. I tried to boot up in safe mode with the same results.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I have an HP Pavillion zd7000 laptop that runs on Windows XP. When I turn it on it starts to boot and then gets hung up saying "windows is starting up" but it doesn't! I've tried booting it in safe mode and looking around for the answer. Right now I'm defraging it, hoping that helps. I don't have a restore CD or a Windows XP CD, unfortunately! Any thoughts?

I have an HP zv5000 and it started up with a message that says,
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."

So I did that with my original Setup disc, it started to load stuff on a blue screen and then the message at the bottom said that it was starting windows, but it gave me a black screen with about a dozen choices of what to do next.
I don't know which one to choose. The other alternative was to press 'enter' and partition the drive. I don't know whether to do the partitioning or not.
Is there a choice in the list that I can choose?

You don't want to partition...if you partition or format all of your data will be lost.

My 6 year old HP desktop will no longer boot. When I power it up I get fans spinning (very loudly) and the HDD and Optical drive LEDs flash briefly but there is nothing on the display at all. I don't get the HP logo or the XP starting screen, nothing.

I have checked for loose plugs. I have tried inserting a Windows XP disc in the Optical drive, nothing.

I suspect that the HDD may have got corrupted, or something similarly important has gone wheels up.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I think your hard drive is just about shot. I'd suggest that if anything you need and do not already have a copy of, personal things like pics etc.....not programs..... you get them backed up someplace if you have not.

You can test the hard drive using the manufacturer's utility. Do you know what make and model drive you have?
The computer's model you posted is not enough to get to the correct support into. The info on the back or underneath the machine on a label is what we need. There should be a slightly different model ID found there. Please post that.

There are more than 300 sub models in that M900 family. Is it a desktop or a notelbook?

I have an HP Pavilion Elite e9220f, I am running windows 7 premium edition.

I scanned for viruses with Norton, restarted, and it came up to a black screen with a blinking curser in the top left corner of the screen. All I can do is ctrl alt del and return to the same screen, I can get into bios and switch from my hardrive to boot from cd rom, but that is no help. My computer came preinstalled so I do not have a windows disk or anything to boot from. F8 F11 and nothing else work except F10 to bios.

Does ANYONE know anything i can do to boot up in anyway..

A:HP Pavillion elite e9220f won't boot

"I do not have a windows disk or anything to boot from"

You were supposed to make a set of recovery CDs yourself when you first got your HP computer. There is an HP Windows utility installed which allows you to do that, and the user guide points out that fact.

Without any system backup CDs, you can start recovery from the hard drive by repeatedly tapping F11 as soon as the HP splash-screen appears at boot time:

This morning when I attempted to start my HP Pavillion desktop, I pressed the power button as usual and here is what did and didn't happen:

1. The power button light did not come on (normally it glows blue).
2. The CPU fan did come on
3. There were some familiar clicks (perhaps the hard drive starting?) but then only the CPU fan appeared to be working.
4. Nothing appeared on the monitor.
5. No power to the keyboard (no caps lock or num lock LEDs)
6. CPU fan continued to operate.

I would appreciate any help you could give me.

I own a Hp Pavillion dv6700 laptop and recently it wouldn't turn on for more than a few seconds. I tried troubleshooting by removing the battery and turning it on just with the powersupply, no difference. Vice versa.

I purchased another charger to see if that would help. Despite trying different combinations with chargers, batter in/out, the computer still only turns on for a few seconds(nothing comes up on the screen) and then turns itself off.

Reading some other forums similiar to this problem has yielded no help.

Another thing - the port that I plug the power supply into it seems like the cord can move around a bit.

A:HP Pavillion 510n boot sequence problem

Well, I can only suggest these things first off.

1) Check the jumper settings on the CD-ROM drive (If it's IDE.)
2) Disconnect the Floppy drive from the motherboard, and see if that fixes the boot problem.
3) If all fails, try to flash an updated BIOS. It could be that the motherboard somehow doesn't support booting from the CD-ROM.

Some more info about the machine could help as well.

Start up repair loads then just a blue screen appears, as does the mouse which can be moved, nothing else, i cant ctrl-alt-delete, im forced to shutdown.

I own an HP pavillion running windows 7 and processor is an AMD Phenom 2.
The PC crashed today as I was browsing the web, it won't boot past the boot screen to access safe mode or whatever else.
I get a black screen with a cursor flashing rapidly in the top left corner.
I believe the HD might have crashed, I ran the diagnostic tool and it told me:

Testing: Boot path failed
Error code: BIOHD-4
Error:Unitialized/Corrupt boot structure detected.

I googled error BIOHD-4 and found that the drive might not be dead after all, some people seem to have recovered from this error.
I did try all options from the boot screen to no avail, F8,F9,F10,F11 so on.
What shall I do next?
I have to admit I was browsing unsafe websites when the problem occured, could a virus be doing it? There was no warning, it just happened.

Thanks a lot


A:[SOLVED] HP pavillion error code BIOHD-4 ,won't boot

Well, if you have the repair disk (If you have another PC handy, you can make one off of that) then you can recreate your MBR and whole boot deal.

Just pop the Repair CD in and boot from it. Then open the command prompt and type in:

Bootrec /fixboor
Bootrec /fixmbr

See if you still can't boot. Report back and tell us what happens. Good luck.

Try resetting the BIOS to default settings and check any other external devices that are connected that might interfere with the computer during hardware discovery. If nothing helps, remove the CMOS battery for a couple of minutes and see if it will correct the problem.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

See if you can boot it without the battery.

If that doesn't work unplug the battery and power cable.

Then press and hold the power button for 45 seconds.

Replug in the power and battery to see if it will boot.

A:Need Help with HP Pavillion

Solved the problem myself. Opened the tower and changed the port that the SATA drive cable connected to. At least after doing that and restarting the computer I was able to get into BIOS. Showed no hard drive as being recognized. Went to HP's site and found that Seatgate had a problem with some of the hard drives (500, 700, etc.) After calling a technician with HP it was decided that the hard drive had failed (no indication of it failing-it just stopped!!!)

HP is sending a new hard drive and a recovery disk (the recovery partition was on the hard drive that failed. No cost. There was still 50 days left on the warranty.

I guess we were LUCKY!

Thanks for looking at my computer problem.

Trying to help my daughter out, She has a laptop HP Pavillion DV6 that will only boot in the safemode. She called HP and of course she is 60 days out of warranty. Any suggestions? She's try to restore it to a point about a week ago but the same thing keeps happening, just boots in safemode.

Thanks for any and all suggestions,

Hi sonbon,

Does the computer give out an error when your daughter tries to boot the computer to windows normally? Go to the safe mode menu again and this time, choose "Boot the computer to last known good configurations". See if this helps out at all. I would also recommend performing an In-Place Upgrade(Windows Repair) on the computer. You will definitely need your Windows 7 CD in order to perform this process. When was the last the computer was able to work successfully?

Hi. I bought this laptop used from someone online. I know it is old. It uses the FS1 socket, and has an A4 processor. So I can't expect too much. But it just locks up on me aall the time. As soon as I try to open anything, it just locks up. The day I got it, I was able to open Google Chrome and watch some Youtube videos. The next day, nothing. I think the HDD is screwed, and I would like to replace it with an SSD. My problem is, it will not detect my SSD. What can I do to get my SSD installed in this thing, so that hopefully I can use it for some basic things on the go?

I have what is probably a classic problem, of having a Laptop which
has had the Power Plug line yanked severely.... pulling out the center pin
and destroying the female jack. It would seem that replacing said jack would be a simple task.... IF you could gain access.

How do you open the case up?? I have an HP Pavillion xt178.
I have removed the HD, battery, access panels and all visible screws.
I've lifted the labels in the center of the bottom, looking for hidden screws and found none. Something still has a firm attachment to the center and I can see what looks to be a stand off, located in the center, but have no clue as to where to access it. I've trolled through the HP website, but can not find much more than rec.s to send it in for repair.

How and where does one gain the secret key??

my lap top freezes when i turn it on. the only thing i get is a black screen with hp invent in the middle. i put a disc in with windows xp home edition on it to try to swipe the computer but when i turn it on i cant even get to boot from disc. any ideas?

A:HP Pavillion ze4400

That unit is old enough to have begun some problems with the hard drive... or heat from dust, dirt, fiber...

Clean out thoroughly with canned air and denatured alcohol.

Can you put the drive in an external USB enclosure to see if you can access the data on another computer? If so, look for the SMART test results.

HP has used in that model Hitachi, Samsung, Western Digital, and Seagate... so it would be helpful to know more about the hard drive installed.

Luckily hard drives are very low cost nowadays... so I would look for another at Frys, NewEgg, Directron, CDW, Zipzoomfly, or other supplier and see if you can install windows to it... If you need help, let us know.

But there have been a lot of system board failure reports... due to excess heat.

What is the age of that laptop and components.?

was wondering if anyone could help me please, i installed windows 7 onto my laptop a while ago and as i don't use my CD-ROM very much i've only recently realised it no longer works, i've had a look under device management and 'coprocessor' has a yellow triangle by it and ! mark ?

I'm really useless when it comes to technology but was wondering if anyone could help me in finding out how to fix this problem please?

i've tried to update driver software but that does not work, and states windows could not find driver software for your device

and underneath properties it states;

"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

There is no driver selected for the device information set or element."

thanks again for any help really appreciate it

Post the full model # of your laptop - should be a sticker on the bottom that has the full model #.

May need to check for a BIOS update - I remember some laptops needing BIOS updates that fixed fan issues....I just can't remember if they were HP G6's or not.

Hope this is the right spot to post this! I have an HP pavillion notebook. The harddrive crashes due to a power surge in Italy. I had the recovery cds, but then found out my cd dvd player was inoperable as well. The computer place could not fix it. SO I brought it back to america. Now I cannot find my recovery cds!!! I wanted to put in the new hard drive and replace the cd dvd player, and recover my system. Now what can I do? Hp says they no longer have these recovery cds. Is my computer useless. I just bought it 2 yrs ago but it was refurbished. I spent quite a bit of money on it..about 1400 or so and do not want to have to throw it away and buy a new one.
Thanks for your help!!!!!!

At first the computer wouldn't boot and went to the recovery options screen instead, I tried the restore option but it shut down half way through.  Now when I switch it on I just get the hp logo for a few seconds and then it restarts.  It will not boot from usb either.

Hello, my neighbour has a HP Pavillion g6 running Windows 8 and lately these days the computer has been crashing/rebooting and there appears some message with links to dump files. I have saved the .dmp file to a flash drive and attached it here.

I'm sorry but I cannot use the SF Diagnostic Tool because the computer is not with me at the moment and won't be with me for atleast 2 days, she's gonna be back with it somewhere at Thursday and I promised I'll ask for a solution on the net till then.

So if someone knowledgable from here can review the file and figure out what could be causing the problems that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

A:Crashing on a HP Pavillion g6

The lone memory dump blames NDProxy.SYS - a windows driver associated with networking. As such, it's possible that any network/Internet aware program can be causing this. Due to the info from the memory dumps, there is a possibility of a hardware problem, and a possibility that it may be with a USB device (but these are just guesses based on the data in the raw stack text - which may not even be signficant).

Please run Driver Verifier to attempt to force a BSOD with the offending driver's name. Please use this procedure: Driver Verifier Settings Let it BSOD 2 or 3 times, then generate the reports from the SF Diagnostic Tool and upload it with your next post.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

You could attempt it as it can't hurt, but I would be very surprised if it worked as the Dell CD will be set up to run with Dell hardware.

If after you install Windows it won't boot properly try booting into Safe Mode.

Anyone here have any HP notebook or let alone any notebook at all that when you go to put it to sleep if hangs for a while then goes to sleep but comes back out? any known fixes?

A:HP Pavillion DV4 problems

I have an HP Notebook!

Are you running Vista on it? I have never had it come back out of sleep..but I did have it hang when going into sleep..

I now have Windows 7 on it and I really want to say that it was Vista that was making it hang when I would put it to sleep..Because when I put it to sleep under Windows 7 it does it in about 4 seconds, and when I resume it comes on in 4 seconds.. VERY FAST..

Have you always had this issue when first you got your PC?

The first thing I would try is to check Device Manger and check you network make make sure they are not set to "wake the computer"To do that click on the Start button, and search for Device Manger
Look for you network adapters, Under the network adapters and right-click on the adapter.(If you have more than one adapter repeat steps 2 and 3)
Select Properties and find the tab Power Management and make sure that the check-box for "Allow device to wake Computer" is UNCHECKED
Hope this Helps..and Happy Holidays..

A friend of mine phoned me tonight to tell me her old HP Pavillion had begun to struggle to power up over the last few days.

A big fat zero occured when she tried to turn the pc on over the weekend - it did power up after a couple of attempts. Gradually the number of attempts have increased until tonight when any number of button pushing would kick that monkey into life.

She has checked the power cable is fitting tight and the pc has not been removed.

Any suggestions?

Hi, I am using my HP pav laptop for more than 3 years. I do not have the exact model number in my mind. I will post it after wards. The problem is my laptop was overheating then suddenly it switched off. I closed my laptop and waited for it to cool down.After 3-4 hours I tried to start the laptop again, it switched on and then it went blank. Since, then it did not switch on.Below given is the total info: - 1. The red blinking light on the keyboard works blinks once when I press the power button.2. The LED light beside the charger is working fine.3. I tried doing a hard reset but it did not work. Can you please help me as to what should be done now?

 [email protected]_val, Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on your HP Pavilion g6 Notebook and overheating and shutting down. Here is a link to overheating, as this might be the cause of the shutting down. If the Notebook has dust on the fans it could be overheating.  If that does not help at the end of this document it shows you to do a Hardware Test.  The final thing you should try is to restore the BIOS to factory defaults. F10 at the starting of the Notebook. Hope this helps. Please get back to me how this goes. If you wish to say Thanks for my efforts to help, click the Thumbs up to give me a Kudos.  Thanks.
