Question about HP Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My HP Computer is giving me many problems. I got it from a retnal store and is was in brand new condition, when it first got the computer there were no problems. Then a few months ago it started acting up. Now it is quite messed up and i would like to know how to fix it, without spending tons of money in the process. One of the problems, is when ever i first log on to my account after turning on the computer, it would say the computer is not connected to a windows service. Also the computer has restarted itself quite a few times while the computer was in use, without giving a reason why. Also When i use the internet it starts off good, then gets terribly slow and then doesn't load ata ll really, all in a matter of minutes. Also when using the internet the computer will kick me off the internet without giving reason. Oh and also my computer as froze and stalled many times while using any application, even applications that are suppose to fix many problems on my computer, therefore not allowing them to work. These are just some of the computer problems that i've been having, so now i am hoping that i can get some much needed help here.

VIRUS!!! sounds like many and or malware/spyware. the best thing that you can do is to find a way to back up all your important information on either cd/dvd and format. Then make sure you have an up to date antivirus program. The System Mechanic Professional programs are awesome. Comes with everything that you need.

Download malwarebytes on another computer and burn the installer to cd. start up your computer and insert the cd. install malwarebytes from the cd and update. remove the cd, reboot and go into safe mode. run malwarebytes and allow it to remove whatever it finds. from your description and just to be on the safe side I would run it twice. reboot into regular mode and your computer should be running much better. run malwarebytes at least once a week, in regular mode is fine unless the computer is really bad again, in which case run in safe mode.

I have 4 brand new HP Compact 8200 Elite Convertible Mini Towers. 2 are giving me the error message 511 CPU Fan not Detected. On both computers the fans are running, so I am assuming they are not running...

If the option exists to turn off speed control on the fans and allow them to run on maximum I would try that first. Additionally if these are brand new warranted I would exercise the HP on-site warranty if this is available, usually Business machines from HP have on site repair.

You will have to get a factory restore disk and if you already have one place in the DVD or CD tray and start the computer follow the on screen instructions to restore the computer back to its original condition. Some PC's have a separate restore partition on the C:\ drive you can go to my computer and tick to open go to C:\ and see if there is a partition for this. It should say recovery or restore. If you do not have this option you may order one from the factory or go to their web site and download a copy of the original software. NOTE: people when you buy a computer and have this option to download restore disk by all means do so right away. Also store you factory disks where you will find them if ever needed.

Hello, I just bought a HP Pavilion P6000 series. It was a display model. After getting home I noticed I cant log into the main hard drive with admin rights with out a password. The store set a passcode...

Hi, I would contact the store and ask them what they set their password to. Without a restore or windows disk you won't be able to reset it to factory condition or reformat and reinstall windows. They should be able to give you the password and from there you can get in and change the password etc.
Thank you,

I am experiencing screen tremble. I added a new monitor and the same condition exists. I own a Compaq Presario SR1620NX. I also relocated the the tower to another location and the problen still exists. Do...

You already did the troubleshooting. You ruled out the monitor. You ruled out interference. I would say a faulty onboard VGA connection. I would go to a computer store without a restocking fee and buy a cheap PCI Express video card. Install card and load the new drivers and see if this solves the problem.

SATA cables are not brand specific and can be purchased at any computer store or on eBay where you save a lot of money and have endless selection. Measure the length you would need and buy the proper length cables. You want to check the length of the power cables too.

Power Supply for HP Media Center m1270 PC

Are you sure it's the power supply?

Most modern power supply units are of the ATX type. Brand should not matter. Your PC used a 300 watt power supply when new. You can purchase a power supply with more output (watts) if you like, but not less. You will have to purchase from a computer specialty store most likely - take the dead one in and compare it side by side with the new one before buying.

I just got a new computer and is al pugged in ,but my moniter is not working right. Its all brand new, computer, monitor and speakers. help please

This sounds like more of a problem with the computer then with the monitor. The monitor is just responding the the signal.
What I have seen in the past, when I see the power save mode/blue/orage, is that the computer is having motherboard problems.
Since this is a brand new system, I suggest you call the place you got it from, and find out how soon they are going to be either giving you a new one, or how soon a tech is going to be on-site to fix the one you have.

If you got it through a retail store, call them first, but odds are, they will tell you to contact HP. But something worth checking. Depending on the store is how they handle return/replacement policy.
If you do have to call HP, have the computer information handy, they base everything on that (with Dell's, it the Service Tag, I don't know what HP uses).

1/2 of 1% of new computers are DOA, so this is not something completely unusual.
That's why they have warranties.
And with that said, the warranty will cover everything, except your time on the phone with them.

How do I get HP to give me a new Pavilion SlimLine s3300z?

With the level of problems that you are describing, you should have taken the machine back to the point of purchas and demanded a replacement. I would start there. The selling store is your first point of reference. They want to keep good customers. This is clearly a problem machine and should be replaced. The store should be able to guide you through the process. Speak with a manager and have documentation to support the efforts that you have done to resolve this outside of the store.
Keep us posted.
