Turn off system, remove the small 3 volt battery on the motherboard for about an hour and then re-insert and reboot.

- or -

Remove the CMOS jumper for 5 minutes and re-insert then reboot.

This should clear it up and let you get past that dreaded HP INVENT Blue screen. :-)

If the handset is locked, frozen, or unresponsive, you can perform a master reset it using the hardware keys instead of the menu. A master reset restores the original factory settings and may erase all downloaded content, including ringtones, images, programs, and contacts stored in the internal memory. It does not erase data stored on the SIM card or memory card (if available). To perform a master reset using hardware keys, follow these steps:

1. If the device is responding at all, back up your data before proceeding.

Note: The device must be turned on to synchronize or transfer files.

2. Turn off the device.

Note: If the device is unresponsive and does not turn off, remove and then reinsert the battery.

3. Press and hold the Home key and the Power key for at least 25 seconds, even if the Startup screen appears.

4. Release the keys when you see a black screen with a warning sign.

5. Press the Home key and the Power key again.

6. When the Android system recovery utility appears, use the trackball to scroll to and select Wipe data/factory reset.

7. Once the device finished the data wipe, select reboot system now.

My hp pavilion a1110n is frozen on the blue screen and it won't reboot. I've tried to use the command keys but it does not respond.

To solve a frozen screen error, please run a bootable windows XP and repair "c/windows" on the hard drive. Follow the instructions carefully and let the system restart and proceed. Use the key written on the XP CD. After repairing, please an Anti virus (Kaspersky 7 or 2010).
Good Luck!

Screen is frozen, just blue background with Windows xp logo,

Is the screen frozen BEFORE or AFTER the screensaver activates? If it's after then try doing a scandisk and defrag of the hard drive to clear up errors. Also make sure to go into MY COMPUTER, right click the C: drive and in PROPERTIES runa clean up to delete the temp files that may be corrupted.

Frozen blue screen

Hold down the power button for around 13 seconds and it will power down. Alternativly there is a small hole on the bottom of the unit where the connectors are for the USB cable, insert a coctail stick or paper clip into the hole and the unit will factory reset. I would suggest downloading the user manual from the Archos web site where these items are listed. I have had one for a week and no matter what I do or how many times I update the device it still is not stable, good luck
