Unfortunately, power outages affect computers dramatically. You can never tell what or if something is going to be damaged. I have never heard of sound cards being damaged, but it is a possibility. Is your pc still under warranty?

Try restarting into safe mode and using another computer (if one is available) to download Display Drivers for your laptop. These drivers should be available from the HP website free of charge. Copy these drivers to the CD or floppy (depending on which your laptop uses) and if you could boot up in safe mode, install the new drivers and restart the computer. To restart your computer in safe mode, the computer should say a F key (F1-F12) to press during the post to enter safe mode, or you could hold the power button down while windows is first booting to interrupt the boot, and the next time you power on the computer it should ask you if you want to start up in safe mode 'because Windows could not start normally'. If this does not work please respond again! Thank you.

Computer Wont Turn Back On


Can you hear if your if your hard drive is spinning??

Try placing the XP disk in, booting from the disk and go through the process as though you were going to install xp WITHOUT installing. If your hard drive is not dead it will show you that you have a windows installation already there. If it is there then it will be asking you where to install XP. You may have to be quick getting the disk in since it seems like you laptop turns right back off so it may take you 2 tries. 1 to get the tray open and 1 to boot it up.

If the cd doesn't boot up, be sure you have your cd selected as the first boot option in your bios.

Hope this helps!!

Try booting to safemode. and delete it from there.

To boot to safemode, restart your computer and tap F8 once your computer starts booting up again. on windows advanced options menu select safe mode then hit enter. hit enter again if it asks you for the operating system.

If you still can't delete the file try to download MoveonBoot here.

Just install the program. once it's installed right click on the file you wish to delete and select the option to delete on next boot.

Cant set up video driver


The message you are getting is the literal answer to your problem. Here i s the easy way to set it up:
1. Restart your PC and Press F8 before the windows logo comes out
2. Pressing F8 will allows you to boot from safemode but you will also have the option to go to some selections/ options
3. Select Enable VGA and hit enter
4. allow your PC to boot in windows and after booting install your downloaded driver.

If after installation your OS asks for restart restart your PC.

Keep me posted.

Hope this Helps.
