Question about HP Media Center m1180n PC Desktop

1 Answer

At startup, computer goes to windows logo then to blue HP logo, then it resets itself and goes to Safe Mode menu. This process repeats itself and computer will not boot up to desktop. HP online tech said the following, but he lost me when he told me to change the jumper settings from 1-2 to 2-3 for fifteen seconds... Alfred B : Well this seems to be an issue with the CMOS battery. We may have to flush the bios settings and that will resolve the issue.

Windows xp logo will start to load then......


To solve this will require more information from you. The Blue screen is Windows way of telling you that it has a driver issue with a basic component, usually your video card. Did you recently make any hardware changes? If so please let me know what was changed.

When windows first boots, you can repeatedly press the F8 key until you see a menu giving you choices of windows booting. You need to select Safe Mode. Safe mode should allow you to at least boot without a blue screen. The blue screen could also be cause by a virus or other software.

Microsoft has a description of Safe mode here;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222
but here is a quick snippet
To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
