Question about PC Laptops

Pavillion laptop is not booting.

HP Pavillion zv5242qv The notebook tries to boot, but does not respond to F10 command showing on the screen. Screen remains blank, as if in sleep mode. You can hear the drive trying to start up, but nothing happens. Checked power source, that is okey. This is after three year, minor usage of the pavillion. Not good. I have heard or found simular problems all over the internet, including HP claiming it was third party parts problem back in 2004. I'm thinking it may be the memory module under the keyboard? or bios?

Try to boot the notebook with F8 Key. (Safe Mode)

Also try to go into the BIOS setting and change there --> Power and Boot Priority.

For BIOS try: ESC, DEL or F2 keys.

WHAT KEY DO YOU HIT ON BOOT UO TO REACH BIOS


normally on any PC it's F2 or DEL, some others do use random F-keys. try pressing TAB on boot up to show the post messages, then it should tell you on-screen what key it uses.

Hope this helps :)

Booting problem with my hp pavillion dv6000


it seems there is a problem with detection of hard disk drive.

as soon as you turn on the laptop press F1 key to enter the BIOS and check there to see if the hard drive is detected or not. If F1 doesnt take you into BIOS try F2.

Turn off the Notebook remve all the peripherials, Remove battery and disconnect AC Adapter and then press and hold down power button for thirty seconds.
After 30 Seconds connect Battery and Power supply as soon as you tun on the Notebook keep on hitting F10 Notebook will show BIOS then F9 Notebook will show Load Set-up Default than Hit yes and Hit F10 again it will show save Exit and chnages now that show Fix the Problem
If not than use Philip Screw Driver take out optical drive and put it back in Reinstall CD/DVD Drive drivers using Device Manager .

My HP Pavillion laptop turns on but the screen doesn't show.


You could be expierencing a problem with your monitor screen. try this.... connect another monitor screen to the VGA port of your laptop. Now try booting up. Look for and push Fn + the key that turns on a secondary display. if the monitor screen comes on. you need
another laptop monitor. At least you can use your laptop with the second monitor for now.

HP Pavillion ZV5405 with Black/White vertical lines through screen


Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.
