Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1830NX PC Desktop

1 Answer

Shutting down incorrectly

My computer froze for a couple of minutes last night, and I was impatient and just went for the power button. The thing is, I have not managed to turn it back on since then. It gives me some safety options when I try switch it on to login, but those just give me a blank screen. What is a man to do?

Hit F8 while booting up then start the computer using the last known good configuration. If this helps please rate me if not let me know so I can help. mysleuth

I copied this from WinXP Help and Support you should be able to restore your system.

To start the computer using the last known good configuration

  1. Print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut down your computer in step 2.
  2. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then, in the drop-down list, click Shut down.
  3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
  4. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  5. Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
  6. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.

  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function

Last night I cut my computer off and it froze on the shutting down screen so I held down the power button and it cut off. Now when I cut it on the light on the monitor is orange. It's Gateway 817GM. Help?


1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Toshiba Tecra M10 hanging when windows is shutting down after an update


Are you sure you are not too fast or impatient for it. Sometimes after doing updates it might take awhile to get past the Windows is shutting down...

Give it some time and see what happens. If after 15 minutes it is still there, press and hold the Power Button until it shuts off then Reboot. Try shutting down again and see if it hangs.

My icons have disapeaerd since i deleted form ctrl alt delete.


if you press ctrl alt delete, sometimes the computer will reset itself. You might need to wait for a few minutes until the computer does its thing.

if the computer is not moving or you are getting impatient(I am usually impatient). I would usually press and hold the power button of the computer so it shuts down for me. Then I would press the power again so the computer will turn back on.

PLEASE BE WARNED - if you were doing something before this, you will lose your work, and there is a slight chance that the computer might not start back. If it does not start back usually it is a virus or a hardware problem.

No picture on monitor 997M


One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.
