Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

2 Answers

My hp dv 1000 notebook will not boot up.

It boots as far as windows & goes to start up page with all text.
Start up normally,safe mode etc. that page.
I've click them all at different times & I get to blue screen indicating there's a problem. At that point & the whole process starts to repeat itself.
P.S.
A new harddrive was installed 2 months ago.
Any help would be appreciated.

I service PCs, years ago for pay, now for friends. I have had so much trouble with HP recovery disks and consequently, HP hardware, I refuse to touch them any more.
I suggest you check the integrity of the installation disks on a working computer and then try reinstalling everything. The last HP I serviced necessitated THREE 8 disk sets to get ONE 8 disk set of uncorrupted disks. One of the sets the original, two others straight from HP.

It could be that the hard drive drivers may be incorrect, if it started when you got the new hard drive its probably that. So update the driver or reinstall the drivers again,

or

try reinstalling Windows from scratch. (note- this may cause you to lose data).

If you are using XP then as the computer boots press F2 or F1 or DEL which ever key you need to get into the bios and set the boot options to CDrom as first priorty. Then place your XP disk into the drive and reboot. When asked if you want to boot with cd support say yes, then when the XP disk opens choose to repair your version of windows. It sounds like you may have some corrupt files. If you are using Vista, have you had any problems with updates?

Let me know how you get on or if you need further help

Black screen says multi(0) disk(0) rdisk(0) partition(2)\WINDOWS\system32


So far I see no problem. For some reason. you chose to boot Windows in safe mode. During that boot mode, the screen goes black and starts displaying lines of text detailling all the drivers it is loading. At the end of the process Windows will run in safe mode.
Try rebooting normally or rebooting to the last good configuration that worked.
If there are problems please be more specific.

How do i get my computer to run in normal mode again? and how do I get rid of the google chrome because this problem didn't start until i downloaded it into my computer.


Once Safe Mode comes up, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) that is before you downloaded and installed Google Chrome.

I seriously doubt that Google Chrome is your problem. Chrome is among the top tier as far as browsers go.

I think you've got a windows system file or boot file issue.

How do you get out of Oceania change background w7?? My desktop is frozen on a cartoon image.


Sounds like you've got an infection. You probably need to scan the computer. Have you tried booting up in safe mode and see if it freezes?

Turn the computer off, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different than normal windows, the screen will be darker and the icons will be bigger, this is normal.

If it does not freeze then turn it off and hit the power button to turn it on again and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see Safe Mode. This time scroll down until you see SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. Select Safe Mode With Networking. This will give you internet connectivity. Download and Install MalwareBytes and run a QUICK SCAN.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

How do you put windows into safe mode?


Power on or Restart your computer, keep tapping F8 on the keyboard while it boots up. After few seconds, you'll be taken to the "Advanced Boot Options" with "Safe Mode" in the lists. Use the Up-Down arrow keys to highlight the "Safe Mode" and press enter on the keyboard to confirm the selected boot options. Black Screen with white texts will be displayed on the display, wait for few seconds until you see the windows logon Screen. You'll also see a confirmation message box asking you to confirm to boot into Safe Mode, click "yes" or "Ok" and proceed forward. There now you are in the Safe Mode.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Remove printer drivers


You can check your laptop further by booting it from Safe Mode. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, try to tap continuously F8 function key on your keyboard immediately when you start your computer. It will lead you to an Advanced Menu from where you can choose the option "Safe Mode" and hit enter to boot your computer to safe mode. Now try to check the display driver in the device manager (Control Panel >System > Hardware >Device Manager) If it is not there, try to reduce the screen resolution and reboot your computer to the normal mode. If you are still getting the blank screen in Normal mode, try to boot computer back in Safe Mode and try to restore your computer to earlier time when it was working fine for you. To do so click on Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the "On this list, click a restore point" list, and then click Next. Now confirm the restoration and click on Next to complete the restoration and follow the wizard.
Cheers!

My acer travelmate will not come on it starts up then says the windows did not shut down properly it then goes to start windows normally then nothing else happens is there anything i can do to sort this...


Sounds like a corrupted Hard Disk. The Hard Disk can get errors on the Drive over time... there is a utility in MS to fix this, but you are not getting that far.
If it does ask to Run a Disk Check... let it do so...
If it does not... you need to go to Safe Mode and Run it Manually.
Get to SAFE MODE: Pressing F5 after the System Info Screen appears but before you see Windows Booting. SELECT SAFE MODE in the Text Screen.
Once there... goto My Computer | Right Click C:\ Drive | Left Click Properties | Tools Tab | Click Error Checking... check both boxes. It may want to schedule it.. do so and Reboot.

Choose safe mode. If you can't even get into that then you have a serious problem. You'll have to boot with a CD and repair the installation of Windows.

Cant acess safe mode in windows xp, just cycles startup screens


Here are some steps to use MSCONFIG to force your computer into SAFE MODE
  1. Click on Start and then Run.
  2. In the text box in the Run window, type msconfig and click OK. This will open the System Configuration Utility program.
    Note: Do not make changes in the System Configuration Utility other than those outlined here to avoid causing serious system issues. This utility controls a number of startup activities other than those involved with Safe Mode.
  3. Click on the BOOT.INI tab located at the top of the System Configuration Utility window.
  4. Check the checkbox next to /SAFEBOOT and click OK.
  5. You will then be prompted to either Restart, which will restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, which will close the window and allow you to restart the PC manually.
  6. After the restart, the PC will automatically boot into Windows XP Safe Mode.
    Note: Windows XP will continue to boot into Safe Mode until the System Configuration Utility is configured to again boot normally.
  7. When your work in Safe Mode is complete, click on Start and then Run. Type msconfig in the text box and click OK.
    This will again open the System Configuration Utility program.
  8. Choose the Normal Startup radio button and click OK.
  9. You will then be prompted to either Restart, which will restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, which will close the window and allow you to restart the PC manually.
  10. After the restart, the PC will boot into Windows XP normally and will continue to do so.
