    ok so I did the system restore back to factory specs. It is working fine now. It has windows vista 32 home pre edition. It has 2g ram amd 64 x2 3200. I am hoping its going to continue to work properly.

Sounds like a video issue. What OS is on the machine? Try updating the video card drivers. If the OS is Windows 2000 or older, update your version of DirectX as well.
If that doesnt work, check system resources. Low memory, and low hard drive space can be a cause.
If all else fails, replace the mouse. Mice are very inexpensive now. Keep us posted.

Disk boot failure


Sounds like a hard disk drive problem. If you can open up the case then remove the cables to the hard disk, and re-connect them again firmly. you can also use different hdd port on the board.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Hp s3120n Freezes up wont start


If you are running Vista, it probable is your operating system.
Vista has alot of problems with loosing things like dirves,printers,the mouse and even itself at times.
The best thing to try is a full format and recovery and then after about 4 hours of this then spend another 6 hours getting all the updates for it. Then you can reinstall your stuff.
Or you can upgrade it to Win 7 next month and have a whole new set of problems.

I have a s3100n hp slim line pavillion and thru hp tech support was advised to do a system recovery. when i tryed to reboot my system some programs were missing and they hp said that i need the recovery...


You must go into the BIOS on boot up and choose to boot from CD-Rom instead of the hard drive. When you first turn on your machine and the HP comes up push F10 key to get into the BIOS. Look for boot priorities and put the CD/DVD Rom in the first boot position (directions on how to move these item up/down are at the bottom of the page)

Then your disks will be useful. Put one in and reboot. It should read you disc and follow instructions from there.

Hope this helps you, good luck

Hp a305w Pavilion No Mouse or Keyboard at first bootup


i would reset your keyboard and mouse settings to default then shut down pc.. unplug components and wait for 3o secs and then try again.. if the problem persists, you may just have some loose connections especially if your pc is older..make sure there is enough slack for your mouse and keyboard wire to move around.. i know sometimes we can ruin them if we have then stretched to far out.. hope this helps.. d
