You may have files that you want to keep that you saved on your hard drive, but if you haven't backed them up then you will have to lose them because the only thing you can do to fix this is use the factory recovery disk which will wipe your hard drive clean.Just put the disc into the disc tray and you should get an option to start the recovery disc when you turn on the computer, it will tell you to press a key to start it which might be f3 or something different, I'm am not sure what key but when you have done that you should be able to start the recovery and wipe the hard drive clean and it should solve your problem

if safe mode and last known=good configuration both failed, you may at least try to perform an OS repair using the Windows CD. if it still fails, you will need to reinstall the OS or use the recovery option. you may try to boot to a bootable CD to a command prompt to at least copy your files to an external storage option or take out your hard drive and connect it to another computer to try to backup your data

Hp pavillion ze 4300-won't start up.


There are a few ways you can get the files off of this to a transfer to a new PC.
  1. Download Hiren's Boot CD and use the mini XP menu to see the files and copy them to another attached drive. On this website use the HTTP link to download the zip file.
  2. Remove the hard drive and attach it to the new PC. The new PC will see the drive and you will be able to copy the files.
  3. Boot to safe mode. Log in as Administrator and copy the files to an external device.
  • As for fixing the Windows OS, use your recovery CD's after you get the data off.

You can repair windows without deleting your files. Your files will still be intact. To do this, ff. these steps:
  • Insert your WinXP disc.
  • A message will appear saying "Press any key to boot from cd", you can press Enter key.
  • Windows will start. Wait 'til the Terms of Agreement shows Press F8 to agree.
  • There will be options to install WinXP or to use Recovery Console. In this time choose Install WinXP.
  • It will now search for your previous WinXP installation.
  • This section now let you choose whether to Install a fresh copy of WinXP OR to REPAIR your windows.
  • Choose REPAIR so that your files stored in your harddisk will not be deleted.
  • Wait 'til it finishes the installation.
*Drop a comment when done. Feel free to ask me. I will gladly assist you.

Press F8 during system startup repeatedly and see if a menu comes. If it comes then you will find a option named Safe Mode. Select it and press enter twice.
Let me know if you can start your pc in safe mode or not

Blue screen


A blue screen means operating system error. Your operating system will have to be either repaired or reinstalled using your recovery disc or operating system disc. A blue screen can also occur with a hard drive failure/crash. It's about 50/50 between system error and hard drive failure. If you have any issues or problems during or after the repair/reload of the operating system, then it's the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
