You can try to run the recovery if it came with it but it doesn't sound yet like any kind of hardware failure (But it may also be the beginning of one)

How do you put the computer in safe mode on a HP pavillion?


If I remember correctly, for Windows XP:

Click on 'Start' at the bottom left of your screen
Click on 'Run' - should be on the right side of the Start menu towards the bottom.
A box will appear at the bottom of the 'Start' menu. Enter "msconfig" (without quotation marks), and press the Return/Enter Key.

A new window will open with several tabs. Click on the BOOT.INI tab to open that, and click in the square box first on list by /SAFEBOOT. There are three variants of safe mode. For now, choose 'Minimal' (click in the circle by that word). Now move to bottom right of the MSCONFIG window and click on the 'OK' button. Now the window will close, but next time you Restart/Start your computer it will be in Safe Mode (font will different, and it will say 'Safe Mode' at the four corners of the screen).

I am not able to get the the start menu black screen ?


Your windows operating system is currupted. Try press f8 after posting screen if that works, and go into safe mode and go from there on. If your operating system doesn't prompt safe mode screen or anything after that... then your windows is corrupted and needs repair or restore. With some Hp computer, restore/repair option is in a hidden partition and you can recover this method at the hp logo via a F fuction key prompting to press for recover/setup/repair. Follow instruction and it should help you out. If there isn't that option, then your kind of out of luck, and a full windows installation is required.

Where is the system battery on the hp pavillion 533c


Without the mother model/type it's impossible to tell you where the Bios Battery is located. But there's not much difficulty, generally only two types of alignments, as shown below, horizontally on the motherboard and vertically : a74f1de.jpg
Vertical,

Horizontal.

For some reason when I print from the HP Pavillion dv2000, my printer feeds a blank page through for each page I am printing.


Appears to be a relatively common problem for different reasons--sometimes system, sometimes printer. Things to check--page length settings, try reducing the printout size, margins. What's the printer and what size paper? Thanks

Hp pavillion m9080n cannot read flopy disk


Floppy disk drives (and disks) are not that reliable and usually fail, especially on older computers. A test would be to try a different floppy, also try formatting a different floppy. Can you read the problem floppy from a different computer?
