Problem accessing windows xp home edition

My HP Pavillion a620n had a system crash and I used the backup disk to repair it. Now when it gets to the windows XP screen it says my computer has a configuration problem and will not work until it is fixed.Checked all the connections inside the machine and they are fine so it must be in the bios that the problem lies. The problem is I do not know what the original bios had. Checked it but did not know what to change of if I should change anything . Need the information for the Main, Advance, Boot, etc to make sure these are what they should be at. Thanks for any help.

Recovering from malware attack


See the linked document on how to perform a repair install of Windows XP if you have not already done this.

Can you boot into Safe Mode or do you get the same hang issue when trying this?

As you can attach the problem XP boot drive as a secondary drive in another computer, I would recommend that you either backup all the user documents and data from that slave drive or that you make a backup image of the slave drive using any of the available backup tools such as Easeus Todo Backup or Paragon free tools

My computer crashed and i need to install windows xp home edition but don;t have the disc what can i do


You should have a system recovery disk. If you don't, then you will need a XP Home disk. As long as you have the XP installation code (usually placed on a sticker on the outside of your comptuer), you can use any XP Home disk. It's the product code that is really needed. Go borrow a CD from a friend and use your software code that is on your computer.

My windows xp home edition has crashed and i have no recovery cd


Find a friend with either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM disk,
or with an 'OEM' ("original equipment manufacturer") equivalent.

Use that disk, plus the 25-character product-key on the label on the side of your computer,
to reinstall Windows, or first to try to "repair" your installed copy of Windows.

Or, if you have a "brand-name" computer (Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, eMachines)
telephone the manufacturer, and order a replacement "System Restore" set of CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

Windows xp home edition reinstall


If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c


Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.
