When you get to the normal/safe mode screen, select enable VGA. This will boot your computer using the standard 640 x 480 default. Once you are in windows, then you can go into the display properties and change it to a resolution that is compatible with your screen and computer.

Thanks and pelase take a moment to rate as fixya.

Hp pavilion dv4000, all the programs were erased including the browser please help me.


Try the system restore option. If you cant access it in Windows then try it in safe mode.
Reboot the PC.While in the boot mode hold down f8 key. This will give a menu with "Safe mode" option. Choose safe mode, hit enter let it load. While in safe mode go to system restore and then chose a date prior to the problem.

Hp pavilion freezes at startup


Will it start in SAFE mode? Reboot and press F8 before Windows loads. This will give a small menu about different SAFE modes and Normal mode. Select SAFE mode and allow system to start. If the system starts fine then you have corrupted drivers and/or a virus which is corrupting your drivers. Download AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe and run these. Now goto START, Run and type SFC/scannow and have your original disks handy because any corrupted drivers will have to be replaced. Now try to reboot into NORMAL mode. If OK you're done. If not OK or even in SAFE mode all you see is the cursor then the laptop needs to go to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com

Got a HP DV2000 boot then freezes


Hi,
It seems that the problem is with the display chipset ( assuming its with Nvidia chipset model).
If you are not a technical person, take out the mother board and do a reflow of the chipset with a blower or else take it to a qualified service person or authorised service center.

My HP Notebook first showed a black screen and then after a hard shutdown and restart it only shows a black screen with colored lines. It seems that it is starting up even though I can't see the screen.


Try this,Start in VGA mode.Once started,update your video drivers

To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
Safe Boot options loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  • Safe Mode (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows.
  • Safe Mode with Networking (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Network): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows together with the drivers that you must have to load networking.
  • Safe Mode with Command Prompt (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal(AlternateShell)): This option is the same as Safe mode, except that Cmd.exe starts instead of Windows Explorer.
  • Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display.

Windows won't start


the reason it does this is because a program was interrupted before it finnished or a incorrect driver was installed.start up in safe mode to repair the problem.if you know of a new driver youve just installed either roll back to previous driver or delete it.
if unsure use check disk.when done restart.pc

Desk top won't display-hibernation mode


Hi,

Based on your post of failure to boot due to hibernation, you can try removing the battery and AC adapter connection for an hour or so. Thereafter, insert battery back and charge but don't power up. Allow the laptop to charge for a couple of hours. Try powering up/booting. Press F8 to start in Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode disable Hibernation.

If the laptop still fails to power up, then it may be entirely another problem.

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.
