Your case is common in most hp desktop i believe the bios of your hp has certain problems so what i'll recommend to you is to update the bios of your mainboard you can search it on th einternet or if you can't surf properly repair the operating system by flashing in your bootable disk then restart and boot up the disk and proceed to the setup then repair the os

hope it helped you!:]

WHERE CAN I FIND THE BUILD DATE AND SPECS


check for a date on the battery, or remove the cover where the memory is and there should be a date sticker on the memory. Hard drives are also dated. All those help with warranty questions.

For Specs Google the model and specifications.

How to reseat hard drive from dell inspirion laptop?


Ambiguous question but I will attempt to help.

If you are wanting to restore the computer to factory build, then the OS disc will be required, or you can roll back with 'System Restore' How to restore Windows XP to previous state

If the hard drive is not showing in the BIOS then a replacement hard drive can be purchased for a few pounds.

Hello! I recently bought a samsung portable


The software is telling you one thing and the Webmaster another. I would trust what the software error is saying to you. I can't even register my Samsung Tab 3 on their site, it asked me to enter the purchase date which I did, 11/16/13. When I tried submitting the form, I got an error telling me the Tab 3 was manufactured 11/30/13, making my purchase date incorrect. Really??!!! My Best Buy receipt didn't lie and I was there at the store that very day, and had purchased the Tab 3.

Resumin windows... for troubleshooting and advanced startup options for windows.. Press F8. I've tried but it did not do anything. It appears as the screen is frozen.


Either you did not shutdown the computer properly or the hard drive failed. When you press F8, it should give you an option to boot to "Safe Mode". Boot to "Safe Mode" and it should load up to the account login page and your desktop:

- If it does load, attempt a system restore by going to Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore, then select a previous time/date to go back to.

- If it doesn't load, then the hard drive has very likely crashed, which would mean you will need to replace the hard drive.

- One more thing you can try is performing a factory recovery. The downside to this is that you need an external CD/DVD-ROM drive and the Operating System discs. This will allow you to restore the computer to factory settings, so it will erase everything you have on the hard drive and reload a clean OS and appear just like the first day you purchased it. This will rule out any software issues.
