Hp pavilion a1017c will not boot totally stops at the blue screen
We have unplugged the power, unplugged all the cables and redid them. We rebooted twice - still get stuck at that screen then it goes to a black screen and the cursor becomes a dash at the top left hand of the screen. We are going to get a new monitor cable now hoping that will do the trick, but I do not think it will.... any suggestions?

A blue screen often called Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, indicates that something is wrong with the computer. Usually it is a driver that is not correct or corrupt.
You need to specifically identify that the BSOD message is. If the system reboots before you can read it, boot the system while hitting F8 many times per second until you see a black and white screen with a number of options. Towards the bottom will be one regarding automatic restart on error. Uncheck that option. Now the BSOD will stay on the screen and you can post the stop code here to get help.
I hope this helps. I do this for fun & feedback not $$$
The most likely problem in this situation is that the inverter is burned out. Do you hear sound? If your computer boots and there is sound, it is definitely the inverter board. You might want to try to replace the inverter board. I think it's about $15 on ebay. If you are tech-savvy you can take the computer apart. The inverter is usually located below the LCD screen. for more info on replacing the inverter click here http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-board-hp-pavilion-dv9000-laptop/
yes, i would definately try removing the memory modules and blow some forced air into the connectors as well as using alcohol on a q-tip to clean the module contacts before inserting them back into the board. If it still does not properly boot, try removing one module making sure the remaining module is seated into the #1 slot, and reboot. If it does not boot, remove and replace with the other one, leaving that one out, reboot. If, at that time, it boots, you now know which module, if any, are bad.
Try rebooting the start up disc the laptop came with,then go to hp's web site using a friends computer to get the disc you need.Or if its still under warranty return it to the stroe you got it from.By mail or some other means of transportation.
Thats a surge thats happening. The comutper will restart for data prevention purposes.
What i suggest you do is vist the HP Support website and select Drivers and Downloads. Input your model number and download the latest BIOS update. install the BIOS update and this should resolve the blue screen issue.
this is a system32 driver issue with windows i believe. i had this same problem when i plugged in a PCI Sata Adapter it screwed a driver all up and windows was stuck rebooting over and over. the only way i could think to fix it was to format the HDD and reinstall windows from scratch
try to log in safe mode when the laptop is booting by pressing F8 key, you will see many option select boot in safe mode, if you can boot in safe mode then reboot normally. if the problem remains then you have to repair or reinstall your operating system.
