Do you have the install disks and product keys to reinstall?
If you are reinstalling Windows 2000 or newer, you can put the install cd into the drive and boot to the cd and follow the instructions on how to reformat and load a fresh copy of the os.

Be sure to have all data backed up, all drivers needed and all software and product keys ready to reload.

You dont need to crash your windows all you need to do is to reformat your hard disk and reload the operating system .

Since you have an HP, you can order a replacement set of "System Restore" disks from HP, for less than $20 -- much less than buying a "retail" copy of Windows. That set of CDs will have the correct drivers and the same "factory-installed" applications.

Trying to play a DVD and the computer says I dont have a DVD decoder. computer crashed a few months ago and that must have not got reloaded.


A DVD decoder is (usually) a separate program.

You can either reinstall it - it may be available on your restore disk or on the manufacturer's website - or, if that is not an option, you can try to restore the computer to an earlier date - on prior to the crash.

Computer crashes


This could be one of many different problems. When did this actually start? It could be a problem with the power supply, it could be a problem with the motherboard or cpu, there could be a problem with the actual operating system itself. This is the steps i would recomend
1) Format and Reload your os and drivers etc, if this doesnt work move to step 2
2) Change the power supply to a new one or a computer that works. Borrow one from someone so that you dont have to pay for it only to disconver it isnt the problem
3) Do the same with your expansion cards
4) Do the same with your cpu
5) Do the same with Motherboard
Somewhere down the line you will know what your problem is and that is the part you will have to replace

Computer crashed?


Ouch, sorry to hear that, your os is corrupt, could be one of many reasons including a virus, or just a corrupt HD. Get the OS disk that came with your computer and reboot, make sure to boot the DVD/CD not the HD, start the install process, you will eventually get to point where you can select to do a repair, choose that and see if it will recover, if it does you shouldnt lose anythig, but you will need to reload some drivers and an update.


Also read through the info in this link.

My two year old HP desktop crashed two weeks ago


Your best option at this point may be to just try to reload the OS from sratch. You will loose all of your data but at least your PC will work again. If you have the original HP OS disk or Windows Media Center disk just put it into your CD/DVD drive and turn your PC on. Then when prompted, press any key to boot of the CD. Follow the on screen prompts to reload.

If you don't have the discs, you may have a recovery partition on your hard drive. Try this website:
