    Does it flicker on and off? That could be a loose video cable inside the laptop. Please explain better.

Update windows. I know it sounds dumb, but with the limited information you've given us, its as good as your going to get. I have an inspiron 1100 that flickers when the PC turns on because i have never put anything newer than XP by itself on here. Anyways post again if the issue persists.

How do I get my HP computer to boot into windows when I turn it on


mine can boot to 7 things, not just the first hard disk.
usb mem, sd, hdd0,1,CD, and more..
no computer stated by you of th 10,000 models. 1984 to now.
what windows, 14 versions exist.
XP? what?
when you turn the PC the booting is a serial process. (ends at windows login screen)
first it runs BIOS< ROM,
the BIOS ROM, runs POST, (self tests and Plug and PLay)
then BIOS jumps to the first thing in the list (boot order)
and boots to the HDD #0 (default ) F9 key I can change that.' on the fly...
so first is what:?
  1. if a laptop get that bad main battery out first, now
  2. use AC power pack only, NOW. lap or desk top.
  3. does the PCs fan run? (my desk top has 4) if not, power is bad.
  4. does the CD eject? (button) if not power is bad.
  5. does the screen ever show text? like Hit ESC to enter SETUP?> as it did every day since new?
  6. if yes, good, no bad. (bad CCFL lamps>)?
  7. yes, then see if ESC works, F10 , F1 info page work in BIOS.
  8. yes, good, see , now you can boot to 7 things if want.
  9. but if the HDD is bad, you cant boot to that. if its bad.
  10. we run HDD test no as shown on the HP page on topic.
  11. then we try (2006 and newer) the F11 magic recover method.

if the PC is older than 2010, it can in fact have bad CCFL lamps
even PC that are desk tops , the eternal monitor same.

the flash light test. pre 2010 PCs

I have a Dell desktop and lap top. On some things I can get audio on both. On others I can get vedio but no audio. You tube items seems to be one of the things I have trouble with. I can always get...


You must update the flash player and the media player (the codecs are obsolete) on both laptop and desktop.

For the flash go here  http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

 For the media player here http://www.videolan.org/vlc/   codecs already in.

Desk top screen keeps flashing wont start up


THE IDEA OF THE SCREEN FLASHING COULD BE EITHER A WINDOWS PROBLEM OR A VIRUS,THE BEST WOULD BE TO GET A HOLD OF A WINDOWS INSTALLATION CD AND JUST UPGRADE THE CURRENT SOFTWARE THAT YOU ARE RUNNING ON THE PC.
