First, check to see that the RAM modules are functioning properly. It could be that they are faulty. Secondly, check the grounding and power connections and verify they are connected securely. Next, do a full system scan using your anti-virus program, or use this free online scanner:

If the issue still persists, it could be a mechanical failure of the power switch, or a motherboard issue, for which servicing is required.

My computer is saying that the system is not fully installed and all I want to do is to resite it to its factory settings


Which operating system ?????.....
The HP Recovery Partition that comes pre-installed on most new HPs is like built-in insurance if your system becomes unstable or fails.
If the problem is severe enough, you may not be able to start the HP Desktop Recovery Manager from Windows but you can start it manually by following the steps below.

Disconnect all peripheral devices and power on the computer.
Press the F11 key after the computer first powers on to start the HP Recovery Manager.

Follow the on-screen instructions to back up recoverable files on the hard drive to an external drive or media.
Continue following the instructions to recover the hard drive to its original factory condition.
Click "Finish" when the recovery is complete.
Reconnect devices and reboot the computer.
Reinstall software and update Windows and HP to current settings.

HP Pavilion Recovery Partition
Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.
Using the recovery partition allows you to bypass the hassle of keeping track of recovery discs, which could be damaged in storage, rendering them useless when you need them.

Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."
The Recovery Manger program will open on your screen, and you can begin the recovery process.
Access Recovery Manager Within Windows
Click the "Start" icon or "Start" button in the lower left corner of your Windows home screen.

Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

HP Pavilion dv9700 laptop, Wireless stops working at random.


HP's normally use the Atheros wifi card which recently has had many problems such as what you describe here. Try a different wifi card to see if this solves the problem. If you don't have a wifi card take it to a local repair shop to see if they have one they can try for you.

Laptop is not able to open windows. mine is HP pavilion dv4000 p/n is EP360 UA#ABA- dv4320us


If the laptop boots up press F10 when F10 is displayed on the lower left of display and ensure that the hard drive is selected for first boot. If Windows still doesn,t boot then put the system restore cd/Windows cd in and boot from that.  If the display has nothing make sure that the brightness is not turned down or connect an external monitor. At this point repost to get more info.
