Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a HP G60-120 that only sporadically responds when I press the power button to boot up. The first time out of the box it happened, and I spent 2 hours on the phone with HP only to be told to remove battery and power cord, hold power button down for 2 minutes, replace everything and try again. It worked that time but it continues to be a problem, and that fix does not always work. All the trouble it was to set up on my wireless network, I really don't want to exchange for fear of having to go through THAT drama again...any ideas?

This is a brand new computer? If it is HP needs to make arrangements to repair or replace. This should not happen with a new computer. Something is defective. This is their problem not yours.

Officejet pro 8500a premium power light on but touch screen is off and will not respond and the power button will not respond either


hi, Mr Justin Becker
i think its a power supply problem, first you should try another dc adaptor, if your printer works fine with the new one, you have to replace it or take it for repair.
if it is a DC Adaptor problem it cost about: US $29.74

Unplug both the set and box from power for a while--either may have caused a glitch---power both back with everything already connected and see if the reboot that will happen helps or not--a lot of times the box causes this by confusing the set it is connected to.

My hp 2100 presario laptop in not booting


Startup problems
If the notebook doesn’t respond when you turn it on
• Connect the AC adapter.
• Reset the notebook by inserting the tip of a paper clip into the reset button on the
bottom of the notebook. Then press the power button to turn it on.
• If the notebook still doesn’t respond, remove the battery and AC adapter, remove
any PC cards, and undock the notebook if docked. Then plug in the AC adapter
again, and reset the notebook using the reset button.
If the notebook won’t boot from battery power
• Make sure the battery is properly inserted and fully charged. Check the battery
charge by removing it and pressing the pad on the side of the battery. The lights
show the charge level.
• If available, try another battery.
If the notebook won’t boot from the floppy disk drive
• Make sure the floppy disk drive is selected as the boot device.
• If you’re using a USB floppy drive, use the BIOS Setup utility to make sure
Legacy USB Support is enabled. If your notebook also has a built-in floppy
drive, use the BIOS Setup utility Boot menu to make sure the USB floppy drive
is the first device under Removable Drive.
If the notebook stops responding after booting
Check whether you are connected to a TCP/IP network with no DHCP server. This
can cause a long delay at startup because DHCP is enabled. Contact your network
administrator to determine the proper TCP/IP configuration

***IF THE NOTEBOOK HAS POWER BUT WONT BOOT INTO OPERATING SYSTEM-
Press F2 when you start it to enter BIOS to check your BOOT ORDER to make sure your HD is listed first on the list.
If it is not listed remove it and reinsert it and then try again.. GREAT LUCK!! Please Rate Me, K? Thanks- Lucky4lynn2

Try restarting into safe mode and using another computer (if one is available) to download Display Drivers for your laptop. These drivers should be available from the HP website free of charge. Copy these drivers to the CD or floppy (depending on which your laptop uses) and if you could boot up in safe mode, install the new drivers and restart the computer. To restart your computer in safe mode, the computer should say a F key (F1-F12) to press during the post to enter safe mode, or you could hold the power button down while windows is first booting to interrupt the boot, and the next time you power on the computer it should ask you if you want to start up in safe mode 'because Windows could not start normally'. If this does not work please respond again! Thank you.
