What error message is on the blue screen?

It is possible with a windows disk to do a repair on the operating system without losing your data and programs. However if the hard drive is crashed (physically damaged), the repair mentioned above won't save it.

Some HP's have a built-in restore of windows, accessed by a function key, but beware, it may erase the hard drive before the re-install of windows.

HP Pavillion DV2000 (dv2415)laptop w AMD Turion64X2, running Windows Vista. The problem appears to be a power up issue where, when the laptop is initially turned on, all the various lighted buttons around...


We can troubleshoot the Overheat issue but first we need to turn it on. Perform following steps and check if you can see the diplay on screen.

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If the Notebook power up and shows you display, then proceed with further steps (or you can connect a desktop monitor to check if its displaying. Press Fn+F4 to toggle the display on external monitor)

The notebook may overheat and make noise or stop working due to the following conditions:
1. Due to incorrect power supply from the AC adapter.
2. If the Fans/Heat Sink are not working properly.
3. If the power management and BIOS settings are messed up in the Notebook.
4. Finally due to other components on the system board.

To resolve this problem with overheating, perform following steps.

I check your Laptop and see that your Laptop product number is "GA534UA#ABA" with Windows® Vista Home Premium pre-installed, if you are using the same, process with following steps.

Step 1: Reset the BIOS to factory defaults:
1. Click Start, Turn Off Computer, Restart.
2. When the HP logo appears, press F10 to enter BIOS Setup.
3. Press F9 when you are in BIOS Utility to load the BIOS to default. Click YES. Then press F10 to Save & Exit.

Step 2:Re-install Power Management in Vista
1. Press Windows key + R
2. Type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
3. Click the plus (+) sign next to System Devices.
4. Right-click the ACPI Fixed Features button and select Uninstall.
5. Restart the system.
On restarting the system, Windows will automatically detect and install Power Management on the computer.

Step 3: Installing an update for BIOS:
Caution: Install this BIOS only if you are using pre-installed operating system with above mentioned Product number.

WinFlash for HP Notebook System BIOS (for Notebooks with AMD Processors):

In case there is no display, remove and reseat the Hard Disk and RAM and check for the issue. If display comes up after removing and reseating the RAM and HDD, then you need to follow the above steps again.

Service Manual to remove reseat HDD and RAM:

Memory Module Page: 127 of 310
NOTE: If you have more than one memory module, you should test them individually to determine if one or both of them are faulty. Insert each module separately, then turn on the notebook to determine if the inserted module is working. Once you have determined which memory module is faulty, you can replace the faulty module and reseat the working module.

Have you gotten any help yet? Check to see if it's a bad driver (or incompatible driver). The prob you're having is common with a new driver that isn't compatible with your system.

Hi,

After installing (MS IE 7 or MS IE 8) browser on the computer that is connected to the HP product,This issue occurs on some HP products. The MS IE 7 or 8 browsers might be incompatible with HP Director

(A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.
