Hi there. My name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem.

Can you boot into windows via safe mode?? If you can then great, you can enter safe mode by constantly pressing F8 before windows boots then selecting safe mode. Once in safe mode, you can take off any important data. If this is sucessful then all you have to do is format your computer by reloading windows once your data has been taken off.

If this doesnt allow you into safe mode, then dont worry, you can take out your hard drive and put it into another computer if you have one or know someone who has one, set the jumper of the hard drive to 'slave' and take off all your data like that.

If you have 2 partitions on your computer, for example if you have your hard drive divided into 2 parts, then even better as you can save all your data to the secondry partition and only format the c partition (the partition where windows is saved) normally c.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

My hp pc wont turn on whats wrong with it? Do i need to get a new pc or can it be fixed? There is an error code when i run the boot menu " biohd-5"


Pressing F11 (see User Guide) when booting may lead you to recovery options, but I would backup data first... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=4007138

The hard drive, motherboard, or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore or Reload on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer. Good luck.

Cant get past blue hp invent screen


Sounds like you have corrupt or missing boot or system files. First try these steps.
1) Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Take the Safe Mode option and see if you machine boots into safe mode. If it does safe mode look different, but that is normal, the icons are bigger and the screen is darker. Once in safe mode click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Once you are in system restore see if you can roll your system back to a date and time before you had the boot up problem. Don't worry, System Restore does not remove any of your documents, music, pics, videos or data. System Recovery removes everything and sets your computer back to when you first purchased it. Once the restore is complete reboot and see if your problem is solved. If not proceed to step 2.

2) You'll need a repair disc or system disc to get around it. If you have one insert it in the cd drive and boot from it. Get to the recovery screen where you can type in the black widow with the white writing the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or more so be patient. You will even see it going from high to low percentage of completion, but that's normal. When it finishes reboot and see if you're ok. If not you'll have to reinstall the operating system. Try doing a repair install whereas it looks to see if there is an already existing operating system on the computer and repairs it without losing any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos etc. If you do a new install it will lose everything.

WONT BOOT UP, I GET A MESSGE TO START NORAML OR SAFE MODE, EITHER WAY IT GOES 2 A BLUE SCREEN - DO I HAVE 2 REPLACE THE HD?


Since you do get the prompt for normal or safe mode, it means that the system can at least read the boot sector of the drive. It sounds like the data on the drive is corrupted, rather than the drive being bad. There are restore utilities available that could possibly make the drive readable again, thereby fixing the problem without losing your saved files. If you replace the hard drive, not only will you lose any saved files, but then you must also get another copy of the operating system, or buy the restore disks from HP to re-install your system on the new drive. If you do have the system restore disk(s) I would suggest using the repair console first to see if you can restore the system before doing a fresh install.

Feel free to ask questions here.

The computer starts then shuts down.


Try booting up the computer pressing whatever key the Dell needs to boot into BIOS (F10, Delete key, F1...pay attention to the screen) and leave the computer on for about 15min. See if it cuts off then. If it does its more than likely your power supply. If it doesn't then its not hardware related.

Blue screen


Are you getting a splash screen at start-up? If so, go into BIOS and set the CDROM as first boot device. Insert Windows disc into CDROM drive and restart. If it boots from the CD you should have the option to repair or re-install the operating system. If you re-install, you will lose all data on the hard drive. Sometimes taking the coin battery out before you do this can help.
