It's not booting to the OS I take it. THen you need to do a recovery it you have one. First try F8 key when you turn laptop on try safe mode see if that boots. If it does restart F8 again try last know see if that one work that would be your last start up backup if that works you should be ok. If not then go to setup do boot from CD install your Windows CD restart your laptop and try doing a windows repair if that does not work then you will have to do a complete reinstall.
Good luck

SOURCE: I have an Hp Compaq nc8230 laptop. Everytime I try to turn it on, it starts up, gets as far as the windows loading screen, and then starts all over again. Is there any way to fix this?

This can be a fault of ram memory ...and and this case just open the ram compartment and remove them and place them back one by one (in case they are more than one ) ..and try to boot up ..and see which one cases the fault ..It may be just out of place and after replacing to work ..
It also can be a missing file in the operation system ..and to make it boot-able again you have to reinstall the system into computer using either the recovery tool available ..(disk or partition ) ..or using a boot-able disk with the operation system ..
you can also try ...(if you have a boot-able disk ) just to repair..and when the command will be asked ..just select the 1 for the hdd0 and the command fixboot ..This will rewrite the boot sector and will make it work ..o r..if you think you can not manage and be sure you eliminate the issues..just reinstall it clean and format the C drive during the procedure..
If it says anything about the hard disk when it stops from booting maybe a case of bios settings ..and in thios case the actually fault is the lack of the raid or the ahci driver..and you will need to go into Bios settings by pressing F2 on start ..and in there select optimal factory setting s..and engage them (f7 probably ) and after that save settings with F10 and enter..
This should get it to the factory settings and make the hard disk functional by being read in the ide compatible mode..and there for not need the raid driver..
If this is not working you can get to the advanced settings in the hard disk 0 ..and under its options ...disable the ahci mode and select ide compatible or ..sata as ide..and save with F10 ...This also should solve the issue if the problem is the related with the hard disk recognition ..
In sort ...first check ram memory and hard disk physically ..than try to see if the bios settings of the bus is compatible (disable ahci function ) ..than as a last resort reinstall the operation system if it seam to be corrupted ..
Good luck ..!

My laptop is zoomed out way to far and i cant even read the words or anything. how do i fix this?

Hi georginabale...
Try to adjust your screen resolution and see if that helps
Click Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Themes>Change the Screen Resolution.
When the window opens try using the slider in one direction and then the other to see if that solves your problem.
Note: give it a minute to get to the resolution after you have clicked on it.

My hp dv 1000 notebook will not boot up.

It could be that the hard drive drivers may be incorrect, if it started when you got the new hard drive its probably that. So update the driver or reinstall the drivers again,


try reinstalling Windows from scratch. (note- this may cause you to lose data).

Start windows in safe mode, if you have antivirus installes run it from safe mode, if it does into stand by in safe mode, you may have other issues but it sounds like a virus to me so far.

HP laptop desktop screen seems to be zoomed in . all icons and wallpaper seem to appear quite large .

There is an opion under conrol panel, accessibility options to zoom or enlarge fonts etc. for visually impaired people.. But also I guess there might be a hot key you have hit by accident, that zooms the desk top. What model of HP? Also right mouse click the desktop, click properties & check the 'appearance' settings.. There is an option for large icons & fonts. Maybe the HP hotkeys hook into that Windows option. Rgds,
