Question about HP Pavilion 520N PC Desktop
My HP Pavilion keeps restarting over and over, it will not let me start up on any safe mode. It will not let me reboot, I can't even start up from the last good settings. It just repeats over and over and keeps starting up. I can't access anything. I just want to reboot it to its old factory systems to be able to use it again. Any tips???
This is going to sound ridiculously obvious, but have you tried
shutting off the power or unplugging it just when it begins to
restart? That's worked for me when I had a similar problem with a
different brand of computer. It sounds like a software problem, not a
hardware problem. Rebooting usually solves things, unless your machine won't turn off -- in which case you have to turn it off by cutting the power. Assuming that you have your CPU plugged into a power
strip, if your HP won't turn off when you hit the power button on the
CPU, turn the power switch on the power strip to OFF and unplug the
Wait 10 minutes. Make sure the power strip switch is in the OFF position, then plug the power strip back in and turn on the power strip. Then turn on your computer. If you're using Windows, you should get a message on your screen that says Windows shut down abnormally and that scan disk is running to check your drive. Then Windows will either give you a choice of start-up in regular or safe mode, or else it will simply come up normally on its own. And then you should be able to check whatever settings you were interested in changing.
If this doesn't work, shut off the power switch and unplug the computer, and then call your tech guy: you have a bigger problem than rebootting Windows can solve. Good luck!
