Computer not working correctly

Hi
I currently have an oldish HP Pavillion computer running windows '98. I have been loathe to change as I am due to relocate home in 6 months and will change my desktop then.
Last week when I went to boot up my computer it did so, but the screen appeared to be in "safe mode" although it didn't say safe mode anywhere on the screen.
My mouse now doesn't apear on the screen and where pages used to appear over the entire screen its only half the page appears.
When I start in safe mode the mouse works fine but I can't access the internet to try and find some help.
Please, I would love some possible answers and help!

Right click My Computer, left click Properties, left click Hardware, left click Device Manager. Left click Display adapters. Right click your adapter and left click Properties. This should give information as to whether the Display adapter is working properly. In Device Manager check other hardware that has a Question Mark"?" or Exclamation Mark"!". You may need to re-install some Drivers. Win 98 had Driver problems.

How do you put the computer in safe mode on a HP pavillion?


If I remember correctly, for Windows XP:

Click on 'Start' at the bottom left of your screen
Click on 'Run' - should be on the right side of the Start menu towards the bottom.
A box will appear at the bottom of the 'Start' menu. Enter "msconfig" (without quotation marks), and press the Return/Enter Key.

A new window will open with several tabs. Click on the BOOT.INI tab to open that, and click in the square box first on list by /SAFEBOOT. There are three variants of safe mode. For now, choose 'Minimal' (click in the circle by that word). Now move to bottom right of the MSCONFIG window and click on the 'OK' button. Now the window will close, but next time you Restart/Start your computer it will be in Safe Mode (font will different, and it will say 'Safe Mode' at the four corners of the screen).

Hi. Have just turned on my HP Pavillion m8000 and the screen and it does nothing. The screen is getting no signal and even though the computer is on, it isn't starting up as usual. Help!!! I've checked all...


hi

it could be that your power supply (from tower) is not working -- does the fan blow out air ?
if not replace the power supply. If the power supply is on but no video on screen showing , it could be your mainboard inside the tower, thats if no noise is coming from the tower.

what were the circumstances when you worked on he computer ? was it plugged in overnight while running or was the power cord attached to tower while plugged into wall ? if so, it mnay have experienced a power surge and blew the mainboard.. too much current going to tower could blow the power supply, causing the mainboard to have received excess current

go to this link and rewview some infromation about your PC issue(s)

Computer boots up but wireless keyboard and mouse not recognized. Hard wired wont work either. I have the Model 5187utf and the HP Pavillion m7050e computer.


Try the wireless keyboard/mouse on another computer, to verify that they are working correctly.

Try the "hard-wired" keyboard/mouse on another computer, to verify that they are working correctly.

If so, then it's your computer's motherboard that needs to be replaced (exact replacement or an upgrade).

Screen Problems


It sounds like you need to install a video driver. You'll want to go to www.hp.com, go to their support section, and download the driver for your particular PC. As long as you know the model number of your PC, you should be able to find it.

Keep in mind that Win98 driver support is harder to find lately - you may want to consider upgrading to a more recent and better-supported OS eventually.

How to restart hp pavillion 7965 desktop


Hi there. Try these steps:

1. On restart, press F8. This should bring you to a screen with various boot options.

2. Select "Last known good configuration". Windows then may load correctly.

3. If this doesn;t work, try the same thing. This time select "boot in Safe Mode". If Windows now loads in Safe Mode you should be able to restart and Windows may load correctly after this.

4. If these two both fail, you may have to repair Windows...

Hi, I can help you with this problem. I ran into the same one a while back. You need the most current and correct drivers for your video card. Can you tell me what kind of video card you have? Brand and model number.
