I let the HP asst. Install a bios update and the install is stuck at 40%. What can I do to get out of the update?


Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.

This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.


Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.


If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."


If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."

This will open the System Configuration Utility.


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."


In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.

A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.

Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.


If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.

Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally


hope this helps

I cant seem to get into safe mode on my comp


When you first turn the computer on Keep tapping F8 if that doesnt work Try F5.
If you can get into Windows then you can make the computer boot into Safe mode next time you start it up using MSConfig.
If you have XP you will need to Start > Run > msconfig.exe Windows Vista / 7, Start > (Type in the start search box under All Programs) msconfig, you will notice it come up and the top of the box > Click on it and when prompted by UAC click Continue / Yes.
Now that you are in MSConfig under the general tap select Diagnostic Startup, press apply then OK, you will not be prompted to restart the computer. Restart and it will put you into Safe Mode.

You can restore any of the removed items by repeating the above steps and replacing the checks for the designated applications.

For Windows Vista

Turn off the Terminate and Stay Resident programs MSCONFIG in VISTA
1. Click the Start icon.
2. In the Start Search text box located above the Start icon, type msconfig and then press Enter.
3. On the User Account Control window, click Continue. The System Configuration window displays.

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.

Hp doesn't start. Always open xp window saying gathering info Please wait while windows configures scan. Installed cd with no problem.


As soon as you start rebooting your computer, hit F8 over and over again until you get into a boot menu. Pick "Safe Mode."

It should boot. This is a temporary fix.

When you're in, click Start, then Run. Type in "msconfig" without the quotes. Hit Enter.

A new window pops up. Click on the Startup tab. Find a file called hpqtra08.exe and undo the checkbox. Hit Apply and OK. msconfig will ask you if you want to restart with the changes; you do.

Your computer should boot normally. When it does, msconfig will ask you if you want that menu to appear next time you boot; you do not.
