Problem with my HP Mini 110 PC Notebook

Few days ago my HP Mini started to run slow, after I restarted it, a screen saying " Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert Boot media in selected Boot device and press a key". I pressed F10 and went to "Boot Device Priority" But nothing appears. I also opened the computer and reconnected the hard drive, but nothing happens. Please Help!!!

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your operating system and computer Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter Change the first boot device to your hard drive.
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:

IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?


IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.



The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ There is a connection problem such as a bad cable
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty. Although it would be very rare for the sata lead to be faulty. Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty Computers need power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hope this helps.

Your best bet is to just take it back to the store and get a new laptop

HP Netbook mini 110, Bought new battery but it will not reboot properly after installed


sounds like it is powered up if it is continually restarting. Does it work with the AC power adapter plugged in? At any rate the constant restart is indicative of a failing power supply (not meaning the battery but the power converter that is inside notebook). After the BIOS the PC goes to the hard drive for the boot cycle at which point there is an increase in power demand which can cause a weak power supply (not the battery) to shutdown and restart, hence the restarting cycle. How do you tell him to fix the problem?? well that depends but I don't believe that there is a conversational repair at this point.

Have HP mini notebook. everytime im on the


Sounds like spyware / malware i would use an online scanner like Eset or a program like Malwarebytes.

also to stop the computer from restarting open the command prompt window (start menu, click run, type cmd, click ok...) type "shutdown.exe /a" without the "" and there is a space between exe and /a this will abort the shutdown.
