I got a code purple trying to restore my computer to its factory settings and now when my computer tries to boot up normally I can't log in using my old password or username and the only way I hav


With the code purple error on the screen, press the shift+f10 to open the cmd prompt.
Whe the cmd prompt opens, type the following command without the quotes "notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd", then after the REM lines add the following code without the quotes "goto cleanup". Save the file and exit notepad and restart your computer by typing the following command without the quotes, "shutdown -r -t 0".
This will cause the checkdmi function in an HP computer to bypass the tattoo check.
Hope this helps

configuration error code purple


1. Load the system recovery disk into CD-ROM
2. Press F10 repeatedly at boot screen to load the Recovery Menu
3. Press R for the recover console
4. Select "Advanced Options"
5. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt
6. type "cd h:\" to enter the root directory
7. type "dir /w" to view the directory in wide view
8. open the master.log file (or something along those lines), this should bring up a prompt asking you what program to open it with, you should only be able to select notepad.
9. open the file with notepad and when it appears select the File>Open
10. in the file name box type in "C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
11. once the file opens clear the contents and select save as then save the file as run.p_
12. close the notepad program
13. delete the original file by typing "del C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
14. reboot system

After a reboot the windows screen might flash a few times and take a little longer to load, be patient and you should be able to continue with the windows set-up without that damned code purple error message.
