Question about HP Pavilion dv8235nr Notebook
DV8235NR. 160GB Hitachi hard drive. XP media Edition 2005 system. SATA drive. In BIOS the disk checking confirms good hard drive and S.M.A.R.T enable. Set the laptop to start up with MC 2005 disk in CD ROM. After post goes to CD. WINDOWS IS CONFIGURING YOUR SYSTEM. After that it sometimes loads windows and then freezes, sometimes it goes to the recovery screen and stops, sometimes it freezes at the configuring system One time it loaded windows and went to restart but BSOD appears quickly before it restarted.I've tried enabling SATA and disabling SATA in the BIOS (BIOS is F23)I put a pony drive in the USB and configured bios to start that first.I get the windows did not start screen choose SAFE. WHen I run SAFE I get a quick BSOD and then it restarts. The BSOD is too quick to read the problem. I think It is some sort of hardware problem, but the BIOS is so limited in what can be disconnected. Any thoughts?
Start the computer and press the f8 key as if to start in sage mode, but select the "Disable system reboot on error" (not sure of the exact wording on that). Then when the BSOD hits it will stay there so you can get the error number and message.
Alot of times these are memory errors so I would also suggest that you download a program called memtest 86. It is a small ISO file that will create a bootable cd to test the memory. You can get it from:
Hope this helps
