SOURCE: no cd rom and forgot log in admin password for hp compaq tc4400

Without CD's, if the Original Windows XP that came with the computer is the one installed, you can completely format and reinstall the Operating System with all the default software that came with the computer suing the System Recovery Option built in to the hard drive on the recovery partition.

Right after you power your computer on, start tapping the F11 button. After the Compaq splash screen disappears, the computer should take you to the System Recovery screen where you can choose to completely Recover your computer back to system defaults. I tried to condense the steps listed on HP's website so they wouldn't be asdf confusing. Here's the link for all the recovery options:

Go to the section named: Reinstall the operating system using the advanced recovery options

Here's the basic Recovery Steps without disks:
Plug in AC Adapter
Power on your computer
Right after you turn the computer on, repeatedly tap the F11 button
After the Compaq screen disappears, the System Recovery Screen should appear shortly after. Stop tapping F11 when you see this screen
Choose to do a System Recover and click next
Check if next screen has "Advanced Options" to choose from near the top.
If it doesn't, click next, and hopefully the next screen will have "Advanced Options"
Click Advanced Options then choose Destructive Recovery
This will do a FULL FORMAT of the computer and reinstall the Operating System and default software that came with the computer. (Note: this will wipe out all data you have saved on your computer)
Click Next with Destructive Recovery selected.
Reboot the computer when the computer prompts you to reboot
Process may take approx. an hour I believe. DO NOT shut off the computer while the process is running.

Hope this helped, read up about it on HP's website from the link I provided and post back and let us know if this worked for you.

SOURCE: Dell Vostro will not boot up

During startup, just before the Windows splash screen appears, you should be able to hit the F8 key for a list of startup options. It looks from your post as if you know how to do this.

One of those choices should be to disable automatic restart on system failure. (or words very similar to that.) Use this choice to get into safe mode if you can, or into regualar windows.

Once there, go to the system restore feature and restore to a date when everything worked.

This error message is a message pointing to a piece of software (as opposed to hardware, as so many of these messages are).

The next best fix is to reinstall the OS from the ground up. this may be a major hassle, depending on the data you have on that hard drive.

Good luck

boot system into safe mode. locate the icon for my computer. right click and go to properties. locate the computer name tab and select it. find the radio button for "change" and click it. rename the computer to something considerably shorter then what you have. the system cannot boot and complete the logon process if the computer name is longer than 200 "bytes"

I installed network driver of hp compaq dx7380 mt but it not instal

Try uninstalling the driver, then go to new hardware and let the computer detect it. when it asks for the driver, choose browse and type in the location and name of the driver file. Easiest to save it to your desktop. Then it should install properly.
