SOURCE: HP 550 Note book will not start

  1. Take out your battery and the power button for about 60secs.
  2. Start the laptop using the Adapter [without the battery]
  3. Lighten up your laptop...remove any external device attached [printer,scanner,pen drives etc.].
  4. It could also be a RAM problem,try changing the RAM if you have two start with one and exchange them.
After that when the system starts you can do the system restore START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES--SYSTEM TOOLS--SYSTEM RESTORE to restore it back to an earlier date when laptop was ok. THEN LATER ON PUT THE BATTERY BACK IN.
  • Try restarting after an hour gap.
  • If this doesn't solve your problem call the company people.Their might be a Video Card problem or any other internal hardware problem.

SOURCE: compaq 6735s notebook pc goes to HP screen, but wont boot

Hi,

First you need to determine how many blinks you are getting when you try to power on the laptop.
Check the blinking codes below and reason behind that for HP Compaq laptops

Blinking battery power LED Battery Insufficient charge on the battery
Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - CPU CPU not functional
Blink: 2 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS corruption failure
Blink: 3 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Memory Module error not functional
Blink: 4 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Graphics Graphics controller not functional
Blink: 5 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - System board General system board failure
Blink: 6 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS authentication failure

Plz get back so I can suggest you the steps to resolve the issue.

Scandisk. Check HDD for SMART problems. chkdsk. Remove old unused programs. Check MSCONFIG for startup items. Use Ccleaner to clean up your computer. Use Malwarebytes Antimalware for malware removal. Defrag your HDD. You can use Auslogics Disk Defrag Screen Saver. Post results please

S3842 uk FREEZES ON BOOT every time have to switch off. on 3rd or 4th attempt works fine. any new software that requires reboot - it does this without a problem. started 2 months ago with original Vista...


Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from hp.com or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.

I have a 1999 Grand Caravan with start up problems


if you dont already I would highly recommend pluging it in a night if it has a block heater it helps to keep the block warmer and this will keep most moister from regular use from freezing in the electrical connections under the hood also try using a fuel anti freeze if there is the slightest bit of moister in the lines it will cause a rough start and it takes 35seconds of above idle running for the vehicles fuel injection programing to reset it self and run smoothly,also have the battery checked it could just have a weak moment until the alternator kicks in to recharge it from the start-up so I would recommend having the battery check cold so it hasn't had the boost from the alternator yet.hope this helps.

Sony NWZ-436F freezes when creating library


Old post I know, but i had a similar problem...
I think it has to do with the file types you upload - had the same issue, and through trial and error I finally noticed one album I uploading was an m4a format. When I would upload several files stepwise, making sure that the player starts after each upload, everything would be fine until I tried the m4a files - it would freeze on the creating library startup screen. This was for the same model as billybraga. Annoying.

Our v2000 takes several attempts to turn on - once on works fine


This could be a hard drive problem. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it in another laptop. Also try taking the battery out and then connect it only with the power cord connected. If you have the same problem it is most likely a hard drive problem. I would recommend that you back up the data and get a new hard drive.

My phone keeps freezing and restarting


it will end up costing you about 15 dollars but take it to a repair shop for the provider you use and they should be able to save all your info and flash a new version of the software onto your phone but it won't be free, that's the only way to fix that without buying a new phone.

My phone keeps freezing and restarting


Try pulling out your memory card if you have one. i had the same problem and come to find out my memory card must have come loose from dropping the phone. It's working fine ever since I took i out and put it back in. Good Luck.
