Sounds like hard drive failure. If you have anything on the drive you cannot live without, leave it alone till you either install a new drive or can install it to another PC, then you can try to copy your data. The more you try to fix it the more likely it is you will lose data.
If you don't care about the data, try re-installing Windows using System Recovery. (Press F10 key repeatedly during startup)

Thats the problem, the computer was shut down improperly and lost all the pertinent info it needs to re boot. Next time the computer freezes up use Ctrl+Alt+Del to shut down. Insert your windows disk and restart your computer, thats your boot disk, you can either repair your windows or install a fresh windows. Good Luck.

Plz check if you can get the bios screen. If yes then while booting press F8 key so that you can enter safe mode.if you can log in through safe mode then do a system restore to earlier date.If you cant log in through safe mode then you have to reinstall or repair your operating system

Shut down hp pavillion desk top


This is an XP machine, which is no longer supported. I recommend backing up your personal data asap, and plan on moving to a newer machine and Operating Sysytem. If the machine won't boot, and you have important files on it, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the hard drive, and copy any important files to another machine. Good luck.

My hp pavillion computer shuts down same time nearly every day.


This is probably due to having a scheduled task that shuts down your computer. Check your scheduled tasks, and delete the restart entry.

I was typing a word document and the computer froze. I rebooted. When it came back on it has a black screene with options to log in in 3 different safe modes. Help!!!!!!!!!


You should also have an option to start Windows normally - if not power down and restart the machine. This screen has shown up because Windows thinks something has gone wrong.
Something might have gone wrong but it is worth a simple restart first.
Please let me know how it goes.

New Computer with Vista shuts down by itself when not in use


To get to the Event Viewer, click the start button and in the search box at the bottom, type

eventvwr

and press Enter. Click Windows Logs and check the Application and System logs for any errors that occur when the computer shuts down.

If your computer was fine before the RAM upgrade, take the RAM back out and leave it alone for a while to see if it shuts down.

Also, change your screensaver.

Computer won't boot with chime-ing


If it beeps in a pattern (example 2 long 3 short) then I would need to know the pattern. With that pattern I could try to determine when the faulty component is.
