Question about HP Pavilion a1120n (PX759AA) PC Desktop

Computer failure - HP a1120n - Wont enter safe mode, wont restore

On start up screen, I try to enter safe mode, no luck, it just brings me to a screen that asks for boot media CD...which I don't have.

Try F10, for full system recovery. It enters the recovery screen ok, and seems to load/save particular data, but after <3 minutes, the computer restarts and once again brings me to the screen where it asks me to enter boot CD.

Try to start from last known good configuration...ha, no...READ ABOVE!

It seems that I have lost everything. All of my work that I have done through college, all of my drafting programs, Pro-E, Matlab, etc. All of my music, over 12 gigs of MP3's, awesome!

I just want this thing working again, so I can rebuild my life from, all over again.

What are my options besides throwing it out of my 3nd floor window?

If you can from another computer download Ultimate boot cd or Hiren's boot cd.  There are tools on the cd that can help you recover data or diagnose any hard drive problems or system problems.

I ONLY GET A BLUE SCREEN ON HP LAPTOP HOW DO I FIX IT


Hi,
Basically Your computer crashed. First of all try to get into safe mode by pressing the F-8 Key before your computer has a chance to windows has a chance to boot.

It should bring up the windows advanced menu options. Use the arrow keys to select safe mode and hit enter.

*Just do a system restore in safe mode and pick a date to restore back before you started getting the blue screen

If the above options dont work or you are not able to boot safe mode then you will have to reinstall windows

Thanks..

I did a system restore and the power got shut off now it comes on and stays on but wont show anything on the screen


Try shutting off the computer then enter safe mode by tapping the F8 key untill the system boots. Select " Safe Mode" from the list and run system restore again while in safe mode. If you're lucky the system will restore as it should.

Good luck

Start you're computer on safe mode an run you're antivirus

Using the F8 Method:

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap the F8 key on your keyboard repeatedly until you are presented with the Windows 7 Advanced Boot Options screen as shown in the image below.

  3. Using the arrow keys, select the Safe Mode option you want.
  4. Then press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Windows 7 Safe Mode.
  5. When Windows starts you will be at a typical logon screen. Logon to your computer and Windows 7 will enter Safe mode.
  6. Do whatever tasks you require, and when you are done, reboot to go back into normal mode.

I deleted files on my hp mini and then used system recovery to try and fix it now windows wont start


Try coming up in safe mode and selecting last known good configuration. Get safe mode by powering up laptop and pushing F2 on top row of keys. It can be fussy to get it to come up. Try it again if it doesn't come up the first time.

My laptop wont go on to the desktop. It keeps telling something about launch start up repair but that aint working


There might be errors in the Windows Opeating System. This might have been caused by the recent hardware and software changes done to the PC. Try booting the computer into "Safe Mode", to do this, turn the pc on and while the computer starts up or right after you press the on button start tapping the "F8" key on your keyboard repeatedly until you see the "Windows Advanced Boot Options". From there select "Safe Mode" then press enter. If the computer boots into Safe Mode, you can try running a "System Restore" to restore the computer back to a date when it was working fine. Safe Mode can be accessed from Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Follow the on screen instructions.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

My pc wont even load up. it just gets stuck on the first HP screen with press f9 or f10. it just freezes up, and i dont know what to do. ive tried pressing both of the keys but none work.


try to start it in safe mode, then you can run system restore back to see if this fixes it. when computer loads up and shows the first screen, then push f-8 before it fully loads, this will take you to the safe mode screen, choose safe mode, then when loaded run system restore back to where the problem was ok. if this does not work then I would restore windows from the backup cd. if using safe mode when rebooting, it will change back to normal.
