 I would check to make sure that your fans are working. All of them, especially the CPU Fan. If this fan is not working and your chip heats up, it will shut the system down.  Open up the case and check this also make sure no wires are blocking the fans keeping them from working properly.

HP Pavilion a6602f suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason.


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Debdeb_64.

The power supply could be ok, this little green light that you see on the rear of the tower case is likely to be the Ethernet/Network connection.


Possible reasons for failure are as follows:
It could be a loose connection at the 24Pin or Processor 4Pin power connector.
A damaged power supply, is possible.
A faulty power on switch.
A dead mainboard.
A loose connection.

I have published a few guides that should help you in this regard, they are entitled:
How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!
How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
and most importantly My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Do contact a computer technician to test components if need be.

Take care!

I have a a emachine model T5254 desktop it had windows vista on it but was not working so i tried to install windows xp but it shut down after 4 minutes of installing then i tried putting windows xp dark...


Your computer overheated, it needs a service/clean. With the vacuum cleaner. See my guide to get it working again, it is entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Install more fans, it needs cooler air to get into the chassis.

Take care!

My touchsmart iq770 wont run windows vista unless im in safe mode and i have lines through my screen


Go to support.hp.com and look up your computer.
Download and install the Vista drivers.
If you don't see Vista drivers the computer won't run Vista. Go back to XP.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

I have an hp pavilion a1410y. the computers harddrive doesnot do anything but make noise so i installed two other harddrives out of other computers one of the harddrives has xp professional and the other...


The reason it wont boot from your other hard drive is because windows is expecting some different hardware on *********** bored, gets stumped and falls down.

On your computer there should be a license sticker. This will be rectangular with a green pattern on it. It will have your product key for what ever version of XP you are licensed for. You can place the drive which matches your version in your computer. Then, in order to get that install running on the new board, you will need an OEM copy of the appropriate windows disk. you may have received one with your HP, or talk to your geek friends who may have one.

to repair the load, boot off the cd. You will come to a window where you can press R (dont press R) for recovery console, F3 to quit, and Enter to continue. Then you will see a license. Press F8 to accept it. Then you will see a thingy that says "serching for previous versions of microsoft windows". Then it will show you the partions on the drive. select the OS one, usually marked "C". And there should be an option to press R for repair. Now you can press R. It will ask you for a product key. That is the one on the license on the side of the computer, also known as a COA (Certificate of Authenticicty). It will ask you for some other things too, like user names etc. Then you get to go hunt for drivers on the HP website. Lots of fun.

Hp pavilion a1200y with windows xp home


Hmm,
It seems that you might either have a problem with your hard drive or you might have a huge Trojan that is not allowing you too sign on. If you cannot go to your desktop, you might have to get a new computer, if your finally able, try scanning it with a anti-virus.


Hope this helps,

spywaregard 2008 is malware, a parasite if you will

the last 1/2 of this article will run down a list of files you need to delte to get rid of this nasty little bugger. You can also download various tools to remove it, but it is dependent on your comfort level. if you are comfortable searching for files and changing a couple of registry keys, then by all means, manually is the way to go. If not, you will not have a hard time finding a tool to get rid of this

I have lost sound on my xp home edition windows for no apparent reason. Any chance of help. Thanks


If you have lost sound on the PC there could be several reasons:
1. if you use speakers the speakers could have either become unplugged, the souns could be turned down or muted.
2. The sound card could have gone bad.
3. You could have downloaded a Microsoft update that corrupted your sound.

Do the following:
1. Check you speaker cables to make sure they are plugged in correclty if you use speakers
2. Check the sound icon by your system clock in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. If it has a red X then this is where the issue is, if not then click it and make sure it is 'Off' mute.
3. Click start right click 'My computer' and go to device manager on theproperties tab. Make sure the driver for your speakers does not show a yellow or red indicator.

If you still have an issue then go to: startr, accessories, system tools, system restore and restore the pc to a checkpoint before the date you lost your speakers/sound.
