That Blue Screen of Death you cite is a registry hive file error.

Since you state you don't have any HP discs, you have only two things you can do.

(a) This is the less involved way to go and preferable because it's destructive. Attempt to start your PC in Safe Mode. That is, when you reboot and see the HP logo, start hitting the F8 key to bring up the Windows Startup menu. Select Safe Mode. When you get to the Login screen, login with the Administrator account, and I hope you remember the Administrator password when you do this if you set one up. Assuming you make it to the desktop, go to Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore. Run the wizard to revert your system back to a time before the problem started. Don't be afraid to go back farther than you need to because your data files will not be affected. The only things that will be affected are program installations, registry changes and driver changes. Let the wizard do it's thing and follow the prompts and you should be fine. If this doesn't work...

(b) For this one, you're going to need to move files. For that, you'll need a Windows CD. If you have an extra one around so you can boot to the Recovery Console, you'll be fine. Assuming you find one, then just follow the steps on this page --> Recovering HIVE Files. That will get Windows back to functional status, but you will have to reinstall your programs because even though they're there, you're recovering to a pristine version of that registry file that doesn't include any non-Windows software, so Windows can't use it.

Good luck, and post back with how it goes.

    Ack, on my previous post, In (a), I meant "less destructive".

    Whenever you start in Safe Mode, it displays the drivers it is loading, so don't worry. Do you get to the login page?

Switch On your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'

A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next

Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

My pc doesn't startup up

I had this problem too but I then downloaded the most recent BIOS driver from the HP web site and that seems to be working. At least it now starts and boots correctly but I still have the problem that it tends to hangs up after a short while.

Cannot sign on

Restart your computer, when you see the HP logo, press the F8 button and keep pressing it until you get a black screen menu with several options. Try to start the computer selecting the "use last known good configuration" option. If it doesn't work, try the "Safe mode" Option and once you're in try a System restore (Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System restore).

Could be a fan, either processor or graphic processor heating up. Then again it could be the motherboard. Try exchanging memory. If it still does it, make sure the fans are spinning. If it continues, i'm pretty sure you have a motherboard issue.

Screen is complete blackout when I turn on my hp compaq c6000

You either have a screen that has gone and needs to be replaced or a cheaper fix and usually a more likely one is that the inverter in the screen has gone out. The inverter is quite cheap, around $34.00. Try it
