My HP Compaq 6735s.I got it as a present from my


I hate Compaq since HP bought them out yrs ago. Anyways a few suggestions.
1 unplug it and take the battery out and wait say 5 minutes put it back in and all and turn on. Still nothing? Try leaving the battery out and just plug it in and turn on..... No? Put any disk in the drive and try both with battery and plugged in and without battery.

I've had this irritation with my Dell a few times. I turn it on and nothing but a blank screen. If you have anything plugged into it such as phone or other usb devices unplug them. they do sometimes interfere. The dvd/cd drive Did the same to me even when I first bought my unit but after a while of just leaving a disk in the drive it quit. I asked about that problem myself and it's nothing to worry about. If the problem does persist I would suggest running a few system scans updating drivers and scanning for spyware trojans malware virus' and so on. these can cause such problems

Hard


  1. Open the cover that is over your HDD
  2. Remove the Hard Drive from it's casing
  3. Now replace the HDD ensure everything is connected properly
  4. If possible, power up and listen for the HDD to spin, if it's making no noise or a very noticeable clicking noise it's time to purchase a new HDD
  5. If not power on anyway and see if you get the same error.
  6. Try a spare HDD instead, this would indicate if the HDD you have now has failed also
Let me know how you get on

Had to reinstall my operating system... now when I put a blank re-writable cd in the cd slot... after a few seconds the cd light turns off ( cd does not open up on screen either). If there is something on...


Your Autorun or Autoplay functions are either turned off or corrupted. Here is a Microsoft fix for the problem. It will scan your drives and make any needed corrections.

Autorun Fix

Best of luck.

Laptop won't boot CD with HDD installed.


If it hangs with the new hard drive installed and doesn't without it hooked up then definitely the new hard drive is bad. Return it and get another one.

New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD


Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.

Windows XP not starting after power outage


I have just in fact a few days ago came across a similar issue. As to whether or not your hdd needs to be replaced is uncertain. What I can tell you is it seems as though the MBR or master boot record has become corrupt or one of the reader arms inside the hdd has failed.
Refering to the corrupted theory, may be simply fixed by booting off of a win xp cd and reformatting your drive and reinstalling windows after the format.

HOWEVER

In my case even booting off of a xp cd did not resolve the issue, every time anything would attempt to read from the hdd the computer would reboot. I suspected hdd failure at first, but this was not the case. It turns out it was a virus that infected the ntfs.sys and the MBR and put a binary code into those 2 files to reboot the machine.

Luckily at work (IT industry) I have a norton ghost server and was successfull at reimageing the hdd, doing so erases the MBR and everything else for that matter and rewrites it. However in doing so I lost all data that was on the hdd to begin with.

If you are not very tech savvy I would probably recommend hdd replacement however since you do have a HP which was prebuilt with xp, you don't have a xp install cd and thus unable to reload windows. I recommend finding a friend that has the xp install cd or you will have to go to the store and buy XP.

Hi,
what you need to do, is go into the Bios. usually F2 at setup.
Or esc or delete. you have to press a few times at bootup.
Once in the bios screen, find the page where you can change the boot sequence. it,s probably set to boot from HDD( hard disk ) set it to boot from CD/DVD first then FDD Or HDD second.
when you save and exit, it will boot from the dvd drive, this will give you access, to use the cd drive first.
then re-install your operating system.
