Your hard drive has died or the had disk controller has failed.
Go into the BIOS and see if it has detected the hard disk.

You can also test the hard disk in another laptop or connect the hard drive to a USB drive adapter and plug it into the USB of a working computer. If the hard drive is OK the computer will see it as an external drive and you can see and open the files on the hard disk.

    If the hard drive has failed, you can purchase a new hard drive, insert it into the laptop and install Windows on the new hard drive and you will have a working computer.

Hp dv9208nr with vist sp2, system keeps rebooting, screen stays blank, cant even get to bios


hi,

When the files in your system are corrupted, your HP laptop would reboot automatically. When the files which are required to run the Operating System like fonts under Windows FONTS directory are been smashed then your system's Operating System will force your HP Laptops to restart continuously. Thus in such a situation you would have to change the name FONTS in the Windows directory.

Cant activate windows xp home edition


Hi

Try and see what the BSOD says , when it suddenly reboots. Press F8 until it gives you a menu , go to advanced options or something similar highlight don't reboot or restart automatically.

Can you start your PC in safe mode. Try a crack although I wouldn't recommend it.

Blue window of death


There are two things to consider:
1) Your hard disk might be destroyed or have reached its lifespan.

2) Your operating system was corrupted.

Try changing your existing hard disk with another one. If it reboots and starts the operating system installed on it then it is presumed that the other one is destroyed.

Reboot to its factory settings


do you mean reload the operating system ?
if yes and if you didn't delete the recovery partition in your harddrive, you can press alt+f10 during boot, it will guide you to the reload operating system.
