Power supply unit computer
A power supply unit (PSU) converts main AC to low-voltage regulated DC power for the internal components of a computer. Modern personal computers universally use a switched mode power supply. Some power supplies have a manual selector for input voltage, while others automatically adapt to the supply voltage.

IT doesnt matter. If the Video Card is built into the Motherboard and has failed; you can get NEW Card that can plug into an Expansion Port on *********** board

Make sure your motherboard is compatible with the NEW video card. For example, PCI Express video cards won't work with motherboards designed only for AGP or PCI video cards, and vice versa. Tigerdirect.com has a good selection. Call their Customer Service Tech; they have great prices, sales and knowlegable Customre Service Tech to Check if it is the right Type of Card. Its probably PCI but check anyway.

Simply shut down unplug and open the computer side panel and go to the back of the Machine. If there is a separate Card (it will be obvious as it has a VGA port) Remove it and just install your new card in its place and plug in your Monitor to the new VGA port. If not then just POP OUT A FREE SLOT in the back of your Computer next to the Plug In Port so the VGA port that the monitor plugs into stick out the back and plug in your Monitor.

Close , plug in and INSTALL THE SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH THE VIDEO CARD. Set all settings to DEFAULT or be creative :)

Cheers !

Recovering the system without using Windows
  1. Disconnect all peripherals and internal non preinstalled devices from the PC, except the monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
  2. Turn on the computer.
  3. When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears. The progress indicator that first appears does not indicate that a recovery is taking place. The progress indicator represents the time before the recovery process is started.
  4. When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.
  5. To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.
  6. After the System Recovery is complete, and the computer starts successfully, update the computer software as follows:

The reason the cd recovery did not work is that it was made for some other HP model.
On the unit you are trying to recover, reboot the computer and press F10 . several times. You should see a recovery menu. Select the type of recovery that will format and recover the unit to OEM defaults.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The first thing you should do is buy a can of compressed air (most electronic shops sell it for under $10) and completely blow out the inside of your computer and fans. Then check to make sure all of your fans are working. Unfortunatley the life expectency of computer fans is a lot shorter than the components they are cooling.

sounds like your cd rom is not reading your cd.try cleaning your cd rom

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Feb 28, 2009

The simples answer may be  to go back to the restore function for the date right before you installed IMESH, what ever that is. 

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Feb 12, 2009

It sounds like IRQ or IRQL on your Blue screen of ***** (BSOD). You can open the event viewer and try and track down the issue but it is usually a driver that is causing a fault or crossing over an interrupt.
I would suggest you get online with Microsoft and chat with them. First verify what system you are running (latest currently is version 1709) and they can help you resolve the issue with an update but don't let them wipe your system or suggest a clean install because you'll lose all your applications and they do not care if you can't find your Windows 2003 orrice disk with serial number. Try uninstalling specific drivers, especially your video drivers and reinstalling them from scratch.

no PC state, make HP model, LT or Desktop.
no OS stated windows, what XP>? XP loves to hate CDs
it is INFAMOUS for that... and worse if upgraded the drive.
id bet this,
1: running sticking XP, and XP is a dead product at MS. and HP.
2: someone installed MS disks to it and lost the HP driver.
The HP drivers must be installed, for the cam to work
one USB driver and the correct camera driver to match you unstated OD.
The DVD drive needs this.
XP SP3, service pack 3 adds more drives.
then needs the (if XP ) patch to the registry called filter hack for XP DVD)

why even post lacking full model of HP and OS it runs
click start, click control panel click system.
bingo the OS name and version is there, if 64bit that too matters big time.
