Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

How can you fix a computer that might be infected with a floppy disk and shutting down the computer when you start it?

I have a HP PC Desktop computer that keeps on shutting down on me everytime I turn it on. One day it was working as usual and I wanted to record myself with my old Panasonic Handheld Camcorder. When we bought this camcorder, it was back in 1998. It has a mini VHS tape in it to record stuff. And it has a a wire that you can connect to the computer that you can record yourself with the camcorder and see yourself on the computer. And the camcorder had a floppy disk that can show a tutorial of how to do this particular thing. I had put it in the computer and I didn't had time to do all this steps. So I turned off the for next time to us it. Few days later I turned on the computer and it keeps on turning off on me. And it's been doing this for several months now. And we don't have internet cable ether. We usually us the computer for storing pictures on it. So, it can't be a virus. I am stumped on this. And I tried everything. The only thing I can think of that it might be that floppy disk. Does anyone have this problem? How can I fix this problem???

Considering the age of your PC the power supply in your PC may be faulty, usually due to dried out electrolytic capacitors. The power supply should be replaced or repaired.

Capture the message that is displayed on the BSOD. There will be a bunch of numbers that will tell you what is wrong. I would open the side and re-seat the RAM and do a general cleaning of the fans.
Good luck!

There are many things to be considered by having a problem with your boot up.

Install windows 95 from floppy


Microsoft Windows 95 employs the use of a bootable floppy disk to begin the installation of the Windows 95 operating system or to troubleshoot problems with the system. Microsoft Windows 95 uses the MS-DOS system to boot the computer first and then loads the Windows 95 operating system onto the machine. Windows 95 Boot Disks may be created in one of two ways: The Startup disk may be created from within Windows or a boot disk may be created from a free downloaded boot disk image. After the boot disk is created the disk may be used to boot the computer and install or troubleshoot Windows 95.

Click "Start" and then click "Settings" in Windows 95. Click the "Control Panel" option. Click "Add and Remove Programs." Click "Startup Disk" and then click "Create." Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive. Click "OK." The operating system will create the Windows 95 boot disk. Click "OK" when the disk is finished. Create the Windows 95 Boot Disk using Downloaded Boot Disk Image Open a Web browser and navigate to the boot disk image site (See "Below"). http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm Download the Windows 95 boot disk image and save the .EXE file to the desktop. Click the .EXE file to unzip the enclosed files. The formatting application will start. Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive and click "OK." The Windows 95 boot image will be created on the blank floppy disk. Use the Windows 95 Boot Disk Insert the Windows 95 boot up disk into the computer's floppy disk drive. Power the computer down by clicking "Start" and then clicking "Shutdown." Power on the computer with the Windows 95 boot disk in the floppy disk drive. The computer will boot up into MS-DOS to enable installation or troubleshooting of Windows 95.

HP had blue screen and said it would shut down. Problem is that it does turn off, so that it can be re-booted. Have tried to shut off PC, but continues to come on and not start.


Hold the power button in for 10 to 15 seconds for hard shut down if that doesn't work unplug power for about 5 minutes then plug power back in and see what happens

My computer will not start up it tell me to insert a system disk. what is a system disk


Your computer cannot boot up because it cannot find a boot up program from any of your boot devices.
This fault could be caused by a faulty hard disk or you have a non-boot floppy disk in the floppy drive. In this case remove the floppy disk and boot up your computer again.
If the hard disk is faulty, replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive, plus the computer's device drivers and your programs to get the computer operating again.

Problem with disk drive A:


First, you should try to keep the floppy drive. If you can find one, I highly recommend getting the floppy drive cleaner diskette. They're hard to find now, but it's worth it if you want to continue to use your floppy drives. If cleaning it doesn't resolve the issue, next item to try is replacement of the floppy drive. You can borrow a floppy drive from someone, plug it in and test to side if it fixes the problem, if not, then it's either a motherboard issue (which I doubt) or a software/windows XP problem (more likely of the two). In which case I would recommend reinstalling windows XP to see if it fixes the problem before shopping for a new motherboard or a new computer.

Good luck
