Question about HP Pavilion a705w PC Desktop

HP pavillion a708 uk

I've switched on my pc and it comes up with the screen that the power may have been lost, turned off I want to turn on in safe mode, safe mode with network, as normal, last known , etc, etc to chose one and then click on it.....I've tried every single one and the pc goes through its usual whiring but then keeps going back to this page.

I've tried F10 to recover, but all I get is a blank blue screen with a cursor - nothing else.
I've powered off and on, wiggled the cables, all the usual stuff. Any ideas?

    Thanks but have tried this...and all the other options...keeps just going through the motions but then returning me to that same screen.

  • ruthgreen196 Feb 13, 2009

    Thanks I've done all of that - still keeps coming back to the same page. Goes through the motions as if windows is about to open and then straight back to the same page.

    I've taken the side off of the tower and gently hoovered out to see if it could be dust - the fan was running really fast and set up menu said that the temp of the tower was 33 degrees - too hot maybe?

    ok so there is a problem if it keeps going back to this screen. try useing teh last known good config. and see if that works. if not then start in safe mode go to start>right click my computer>and look at the reports and logs and read the last few that have a red alert and let me know what is said

  • Jason Suprenant Feb 13, 2009

    no if it was to hot the pc would completely shut down. there is a error somwhere. well d oyou have system restore cd that came with your pc? if so that your last option is to restore it but you will loose all your stuff pictures, folders,doc's ect. you can get your stuff off this by removingthe hard drive and puting it in another pc and go to my computer and look for the drive you just added. be carfull not to have any esd (static ) cus it could reuin your pc ans hard drive. then once you took out all the stuff you had onto the other pc thenput the hard drive back in and do the restore.

My HP Pavillion laptop turns on but the screen doesn't show.

You could be expierencing a problem with your monitor screen. try this.... connect another monitor screen to the VGA port of your laptop. Now try booting up. Look for and push Fn + the key that turns on a secondary display. if the monitor screen comes on. you need
another laptop monitor. At least you can use your laptop with the second monitor for now.
