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.

You may have to reformat the drive and install the operating system again. Back up all data you want to save and put it on a DVD or flash Drive first. Do a Clean installation to avoid a carryover of damaged files, code, and any malware.
Hi, HP Pavilion not available reset button. A hard or forced reset erases all information in the computer's memory which may restore functionality. Resetting your computer forces the system to clear and reestablish the software connections between the BIOS and the hardware.
Performing a hard or forced reset might fix the following conditions:- Windows stops responding. Computer stops before Windows loads - no boot, blinking cursor on a black display, and errors relating to OS not found or a missing drive. Display suddenly goes blank and stays blank. Software freezes. Keyboard stops responding. The computer does not return from sleep or suspend mode.
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.
You are likely having problems with your RAM. Change your RAM. If problems persist after changing RAM, you likely have some malicious codes running that is eating up your system resources and denying resources to vital programs.
Kindly check what are the latest installation you installed from your system or you can reboot your computer then press F8 to start the safe mode operation of your system then reinstall the latest software or driver utility software you install in your system that made your system work abnormal.
are you installed the some kind of software before freeze?, i mean, when you use it, you install the another application. if you do, then perhaps that application caused the problem. if not, then the problem is in the hardware driver. freeze problem mostly caused by unstable driver or software. make sure driver or software that you are installed into your operating system is stable or compatible.
