My HP Pavilion is stuck on the blue screen


While your system is still booting from start, keep hitting F11 to get past that point then proceed with the system recovery.

Unplug your monitor , key board, Mouse and open the Case of your system. New clean everything inside with a vacuum clear or some thing like that. Clean even the RAM. open the RAM from RAM bank and clean it with the help of pencil eraser. Now put back every thing in its own Place. Now your computer should boot up unless there is some Hardware Failure.
IF it boot you then I'll suggest you to go to HP site and download the Latest update for your Chipset Driver. If you are not sure about which Chipset is there in your board then you can Auto detect it in HP site. Hope Things will go well for you.
Good Luck.

Just turned on computer,not doing anything after load user page.cannot get in to try putting back to earlier setting.Do not have any disc as everything is pre-loaded


Does your keyboard lock up and the mouse pointer freeze when you try to type your password?

If so, restart the computer and try just leaving it at the user login page for an hour or so without touching ANY buttons, or the mouse keys and not even trying to type your name or password.

After an hour or two try to login as usual.

Read about a similar problem long time ago and apparently that solved it, don't know why. Don't really think this will help much, it's just a shot in the dark, but it won't hurt to try it if nothing else works.

Good luck and post back if it helps or just repost your question and hopefully someone else will come up with a better answer.

I think you really need to boot from a boot disk (windows xp - vista - 7) for your operating system - and attempt a repair from there. Your computers have different motherboards and parts.. windows installed drivers for them are not close enough.

I have had success in xp by doing this: before removing drive from old computer - you go into device manager and remove everything - drives, video card, mother board last and leave keyboard and mouse .. so you can shut it down .. then install into new machine and it finds most everything and then you install your drivers there.

Good luck,

when you turn your screen on does it turn on. if yes then it is a VGA card problem...if you remove the VGA card and use the onboard one, the problem will be the same because their can't be two VGA on one computer and if their is, the onboard VGA is bad and thats why you have another VGA card replacing it, and if that one goes bad also, then you need to buy a new one.

Frozen cursor


do you have a wired or wireless mouse?
Have you tried attaching a different mouse to your computer?
What is the brand name of your mouse?

Try booting your computer in Safe Mode. To do this, after turning on the computer, press F8 button several times. You will see a screen that will ask you to boot normally, boot in Safe Mode or boot in Safe Mode with Network Connections. Select Safe Mode.

See if your mouse works then.

Check back with me for further help, if needed. There are additional things you could try.

Black Screen on Startup.


Did you try " Last known good configuration at start up. If after boot you press the F8 key where you said you went into safe mode, did you try to load the good known config. It sounds like you have a corrupted registry.

Blank screen when computer is turned on


When you get the Dell splash screen press the F2 key to get into setup. Use the arrow keys to go down to Drive Configuration and press enter. Go down to Primary Master Drive and press enter. Is the Hard Drive listed there? If not, that is your problem. Press Escape then use arrows to go down to Memory Information and press Enter. Is all of your Memory listed? If not, that could be the problem. Press "esc" to get out of setup. If the Computer does not freeze while in setup I would suspect the Hard Drive is bad. Is the Pointer responding to Mouse movement or does it lock up? In your situation I would first try to Boot from the Windows CD. Write back and I can explain how to do this. If that does not work I would begin to test Hardware. Do you hear any Beeps when the unit is turned on? If you can, E-mail back with more Info.

It will boot up to the windows screen and freezes. There is no mouse control.


WIN XP ONLY!

Upon booting, beofre Windows Logo, press F5 key to get computer to boot into SAFE MODE/Administrator. See if you have mouse control under this mode. If yes, then there's a good chance that the mouse is OK .

once in SAFE MODE and are able to regain mouse, the chances are good that you can just restart the computer and everything will return to "normal".

Suggestion #1: reboot computer to NORMAL after having sucessful SAFE MODE mouse test.

Suggestion #2: see if you have a recovery point (system restore) before the mouse issue came about.
