None of the keys work on hp logo screen F10, f11. f9. esc system won't boot from hard drive or cd


Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

I have a HP pavilion m7480 that Im having problems with. It started with it not booting, just having a black screen. I took out the ram, blew it off, reinserted it and it booted up, windows started, but...


i looks like you are working with the wrong part the problem here seems to be the hard drive and not the ram.
i believe the hard drive is damaged and needs replacement if you can move the hdd and connect it to another computer as slave would see it it is working or not

Having it turned off restart it and keep pressing the F8 key. A repair screen should appear if the hard drive is any good. If not your hard drive has failed

If a person wanted an HP Pavilion 8860 PC, could that be done?


Just got rid of one I had sitting around. You certainly cant get them direct from HP anymore. They're kind of hard to come by, although if you keep an eye on Ebay you may just see one or two surface every now and again,

HP pavilion a400n PC not booting....


1. Did you you run the Win 7 simulation prior to upgrading to Win 7? 2. How much RAM does your PC have? I just checked your specifications http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&lang=en&cc=us&product=391284&dlc=en&docname=c00057188
Your computer takes a max of 1GB RAM and the minimum required for Windows 7 is 2 GB. This PC is not fit for Win 7. Sorry.

My HP a705w is stuck on the blue logo screen.


1)unplug all the peripherals from the computer,press the power button and hold it,then connect the peripherals.
2)open the tower and try to reseat the ram and the memomy slot.
3)try to go to BIOS screen,if it gets stuck while going to bios,shut down the computer,disconnect the sata cable of the harddrive,try to boot the computer to bios without the hard drive connected,if it goes to bios properly with the harddrive cable disconnected,that means hard drive has gone bad.motherboard is alrite.
