After installing software on my neighbor's computer, I rebooted to make sure everything would come up. It stopped at the HP screen and didn't go any further. The options were to ESC, etc. No matter what I chose, it didn't respond.
I took it to my house and it runs fine. I went back over to the neighbor's house and used my power cord, my keyboard and mouse...still the HP screen. I plugged the power cord into the socket instead of their power strip...still the same HP screen and no response.

Re: HP Pavilion freezes on HP screen
So the only variables I see here are the monitor and/or graphics card. Maybe his computer has the drivers for your monitor and card and his doesn't. If either of you is using Win 95, 98,ME,NT this kind of thing could happen. They were also short on drivers. It kind of sounds like the software you installed changed something in the registry or configuration files. I've had this happen. Does his unit have a restore point? Might try that. I might think of more things later.

The HP Recovery Partition that comes pre-installed on most

manually by following the steps below.

start the HP Recovery Manager.

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.
There may be a setting in the Recovery setting to tell the computer to reboot while errors happen. You can check whether the fans are working so the processor and everything is cool enough and whether the memory is working fine. There are some tools to test the memory or you can replace them and see. You may also perform a virus scan just in case.
Check to see if you nieghbor is not playing tricks on you. This sounds rel fishy that your computer reboots when connected to this guys router. Some one is loading something as soon as it is connected. Try loading it with you wireless acount instead of the nieghbors. Also make sure you have your current antvirus and firewalls loaded. But also check to see if Conflicker is an issue, this is a new virus that uses other computers as robots causing them to reboot and install software and make them do all kinds of illgal activites and this one writes to the bios.
Hope this information give you some idea please rate accordenly thanks.
if you would please try this power down the computer and reboot and press the del key as it starts up this should bring you into the bios screen now go down and ensure that the plug and play is enabled now go to the perephial section and look for the usb and make sue that it is enabled save and exit and reboot once you reboot see if the computer recognises the usb devices you are installing best regards mike
