My HP 8020N is beeping with some blue instructions, it crashes and beebs then repeat the same thing when trying to rebooth


You are experiencing what we affectionately call "The Blue Screen of De##h", which is causing the PC to crash and reboot in a never-ending cycle. There are a few things that you can try to fix the situation. The first, and easiest, is to press the F8 key during bootup and try to go to SAFE MODE. If you can do that, then you can go to SYSTEM PROPERTIES under COMPUTER, select the SYSTEM PTOTECTION tab, and click on SYSTEM RESTORE. This will allow you to roll the computer back to a previous configuration, since it is likely that the crash could be caused by a corrupted or failed update. If you cannot get to SAFE MODE during bootup, you options get more limited. Most PCs today do not come with a Windows Installation disk, so using that and booting in the REPAIR area is not likely an option. This leaves you with either reinstalling using the recovery disk set (if you have one) or with the recovery partition. The downside of these options is that they overwrite ALL information in the disk, meaning all of your personal files will be gone. What you CAN do if you have access to another desktop PC is to shut down you computer, remove the hard disk, and install it as a second drive on the other desktop. It won't boot to the disk, so it can't crash. But you will be able to see the file structure on that disk and can recover personal files to a USB stick or other external media before replacing the disk in your system and using the recovery method(s) described above.

I my computor is completely crashed out i cant get email only games help


On-line games are the cause of many crashes. They are fraught with malware. You may have a virus, malware, adware, a browser hijacker, or pups (potentially unwanted programs).



A. If your computer will boot and you can operate it ok...

Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



B. If your computer won\'t boot, or can\'t operate properly after boot...

Tap F8 when you are booting, select "Safe Mode With Networking". Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.



C. If this process finds malware, to keep stuff like that from coming back, I recommend you get the paid version of Malwarebytes.

Cannot get computer to boot, loops foxconn logo refuses to boot. Tried reinstalling windows 7, crashes. tried from usb flash drive and dvd. The drive lets me install windows and works from another comp....


When this happens, it is either a driver issue, or the Hard Drive is bad. You need to try to bootup in safe mode, F8 at boot time. select, boot to safe mode desktop, IF it boots to this, i think, you may need to install the most up-to-date Video driver, in fact, you should, obtain and have at hand ALL drivers for your MB, and add on's/ This way you can install, in a s situation such as this. Store on a USB drive, and install them off this. Now if you cannot, access F8 or the PC, you need to get into the BIOS, set to boot from DVD, Boot from the Windows, install DVD, now perform a FULL FORMAT, and then try an install, if this doesn't work, either your install disc is corrupt, or the hard Drive is, i would suspect, first the Install DVD and then the HDD, you need to swap out a HDD to check. It may also be a piece of hardware attached too, again swapping out is the only way to track down a problem

Hi my computer will only come on in safe mode wont go on internet and when i try to do anything it tells me im not authorised


You may have to resort to re-formatting your computer and restoring it to day one. You might have gotten a virus that hijacked your computer. One way to check is bootup in safe mode and try sustem restore. Also in the boot up page just after your bios boot, see if there is an option available to select called " Boot to last known working configuration"


Hope this helps

Gateway 675 fan problem


Check the BIOS in the laptop. The CPU fan and unit fan is controlled by temp. U can set it for a lower temp. The Bios is accessed when U boot up... F2 usually, There should be a 5 to 15 second screen telling u what to press to get there.

Good luck
