Try that:
The goal is deleting/erasing, "killing" your hard disk.
once "dead " put your installation windows cd and reinstall windows.
This process is an advanced cleaning for your hard drive.
If it doesn't work, change your hard drive because it will be probably, really dead,.

HP 510 laptop respond to boot but was unable to display of


take an ordinary CRT monitor screen (desktop type) and plug the 9 pin VGA into the notebook, of course plug the power cord of the CRT screen into AC outlet). Allow the system to boot up into normal sequence mode. You should get an output view on the CRT and If that's the case, then we can safely assume your notebook screen is not functioning and therefore the laptop screen has to be replaced. If the CRT output is not showing anything , then we can say that the LCD (from laptop) inverter may have to be replaced.

disconnect the CRT monitor
also, try this : place the CD recovery into CDROM bay and reboot the notebook system. While it reboots it willa sk you if you wish to boot from CD, press enter and let th sequence get to the install OS . Say yes and select the REPAIR System and allow this to take its course . Perhaps you have a corrupted OS . You may have to repeat this until the system can boot normally.

kind regards

Try using a different monitor or use that monitor on a different computer to see if the monitor is bad. It shouldn't have anything to do with your CMOS battery. I'd check to make sure the monitor itself is good before I go tearing my computer apart. Let me know how it goes and maybe we can get it figured out.

Toolbar will not show up after the laptop starts, no desktop icons, nothing, I can not even load anything on there. It'll start and you can log in, but thats as far as it will go.

Try booting up in safe mode, press F8, & see if you can boot to safe mode desktop.. If you can at least you can troubleshoot from there. Perhaps even a system restore could be performed if it boots in safe mode.

Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like an infection. Your best bet is to start it and keep pressing F8 for safe mode. Once in there do a restore point. If that fails im sorry to say it may be a complete reinstall with a disk...Hope this helps....

  4. Log on as an administrator or with an account that has administrator credentials.
  5. At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.
  6. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to a functional state.
