Usually when this happens it is due to the thermal monitor in the cpu telling the system it is overheating. This can be caused by a weak or worn out cpu heatsink/fan. I would recommend replacing the heatsink/fan assembly with a new one making sure to use a good quality thermal grease between the heatsink & cpu. Reassemble and see if that fixes the problem. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Hi :) Did you remove the drivers for the old video card before you installed the new card? and if not you need to make sure if you have onboard video that it is shut off in the Bios and plus the F3 button just after post and pick VGA MODE before going in to windows.

Booting issues...Connected to RAM?


Most likely cause is that your new RAM is not compatible with your system. Check the user manual to determine the type and size of RAM that you can use in this machine.

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

Wireless Connection Problem


The wireless card didn't get a IP address from the router when it booted up.
Right click on the wireless icon and then click on Repair.
This will force the wireless card to get a new IP address from the wireless router.

Sudden power shut down/will not power up


Try these steps :


1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
Note : Please see that there are no external devices or cables connected to the Notebook.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If the Notebook doesnot start fine, we may have to need a Desktop monitor to check whether the issue is with the LCD, Graphic Card or the Motherboard itself.

Connect a Desktop Monitor to the VGA Port of the Notebook and press FN + F4 key to get the display on the Desktop monitor after the power button is pressed.

If you get the display on the Desktop monitor, the issue is with the LCD of the Notebook.

If there is no display either on the LCD or the Desktop monitor connected, the issue can be either with the Graphic Card or with the Motherboard itself.

Confirm if the Notebook is in warranty or not.

There are some known issues with few HP Pavilioin Notebooks installed with AMD Processors.

Try the link below and contact HP Chat Support if the Notebook is purchased in US to get it repaired for free :

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277&dlc=en

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c01300427#c01300427_

You can get the Notebook repaired for free if it listed among these numbers and is purchased from US.

Hope this helps...

HP Media Center Desktop w/XP


Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?
