It could be any number of things, sounds like its possibly a virus so a reformat would be needed, but it also sounds like the hard drive could be dead, boot into the bios and go to the tab labeled diagnostics and select first the short scan then the extended if either fail HP will replace it if its in warranty if not they are about 60 bucks online in most places (sometimes even less!!!) i have seen over a hundred of these in the past year, take my advice :)

My Presario CQ60 is stuck in recovery manager mode. I keeps going to startup repair.


Problems starting up a PC can be tricky to fix, since Windows hasn't had a chance to load its arsenal of troubleshooting tools. Some people simply give up and reinstall Windows.

Startup Repair can prevent a time-consuming reinstallation by diagnosing and repairing problems that prevent Windows from starting.

Startup Repair is designed to start automatically if Windows detects a startup problem. For more information about using Startup Repair, and what to do if it doesn't start automatically


here is my solution... when you boot your window when you're middle in dos loading press F8 and select boot in safe mode... then when you are in windows click start --> all programs ---> accessories---> sytem tools ---> system restore... hope you back up your windows.... try to restore your window in earlier time...


HOPE IT HELPS AND GOD BLESS

My dell insprion 1520 wont go past boot screen it stars then goes to a black screen that says start up repair or start windows normally but when i click star up repair nothing happens then i pick start...


Place your windows cd/dvd in the tray and boot to the cd. When asked if you want to install windows, there will be a repair option further down towards teh bottom, or you will be asked to click R like before. The repair only works if the cd is in the tray.

MY COMPUTER IS SO SO SLOW IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING WHY IS THIS? IM NOT EXAGERATING IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING


Delete any start-up programs you don't want or use, this will help make it faster at boot-up. Go to Start Button > Programs > Start Up then delete unused programs.

You can also run disk defragmenter. Which will speed up the process of looking up files, making your computer faster. To access Start Button > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter.

There are other ways to make your computer faster like running anti-virus, spyware/adware programs, registry cleaners, and even re-installing Windows. If you still have problems take it to local computer service shop, not a "big box" store like a geek squad (they think everything is a virus).

I hope I helped your computer be faster. If you have questions please contact me on my profile. Good luck!

Where do I start? HP dv4000 is the worst laptop


I feel your pain....actuall am tired of rebuilding them, I feel you are lucky in one sense....your still manages to start. Try this for your wireless problems. May be short term but you never know.

Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Advent 4211c will not turn on atall it says windows boot manager...windows failed to start and i do not have a windows installatin disk. how can i sort this problem out if atall .this is the only thing...


This is a boot config problem.

The fix will require that you have the Windows XP cd. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend in order to fix this. Once you have the cd, navigate to the following link for step by step instructons.

Laptop takes forever to boot


you either have to many programmes on start up, or you more than likely have a trojan or virus, you probably get pop ups when on the net.

to clear unwanted programmes from the startup download and install free CCleaner and click the tools menu and then startup list, you can then remove, although this doesn't uninstal the programme, just stop it starting aoutomatically
