Check the power supply. You can do this by opening up the case and hitting the power button. If the fan on the back of the power supply and the fans internal in the unit all turn of then it is not a power supply issue and is a motherboard issue. This seems to be a power supply problem and will be around 100 dollars if you fix it yourself

Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

Bootmgr missing on hp pavilion slimline s5503w


This document pertains to HP and Compaq desktop PCs that came with Windows 7.The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:BOOTMGR is missingPress CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart the PCIf you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:
  1. Open HP System Recovery:caution.pngCAUTION:Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.
    • Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.
    • If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.
  2. Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.
  3. If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.
  4. At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.
  5. Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd
  6. If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".
  7. To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit
  8. At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.
  9. The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.
If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.

Screen blacks out after startup


well the problem could be caused by either memory card or display/ graphic card. Since most notebooks have shared memory for the graphic card, I would suggest to clean/ replace the memory card. If it has two cards, take off one of them, if it remains the same, place with the other one.

Start up problem


Techguru2009: The startup fails to load because you have too many programs trying to start at the same time when you log on. To fix this problem you are going to sacrifice what programs you want to start up when you log on. first I asume you are using windows operating system. click the start button, click on run, type msconfig, press enter. Click on Startup tab. Uncheck the box for programs you do not want to start when you log on. Careful not to disable windows startup programs. Hope this helps.

Slow initial Start up ????


Your computer is trying to load a lot of programs on startup. Click Start --> Run, type msconfig. A window will appear, and on the Startup tab uncheck all startup programs and reboot. Then go back to msconfig and check the programs that you need.
