Question about HP Computers & Internet

Computer will not open apps

I have a HP 2000 Notebook PC. After powering on and entering the windows password the start screen appears. When clicking on an app it will start flashing and will not open the app I have managed to get into the control panel and then the action center. Ran a quick scan and it showed all problems fixed. I have restarted the computer and it goes through the same thing. I am my wits end. What do I do next?

SOURCE: HP Pavillion dv6000 Vista notebook crashes when entering sleep mode

This is a common problem with HP Pavilion laptops, including mine. Check and make sure there are no non-OS programs running that are trying to control power settings (like a power monitor program running in the system/task tray) and then turning of hibernation in the POWER SETTINGS and then for all "WHEN I CLOSE LID" and "WHEN I PUSH THE SLEEP BUTTON" and "WHEN I PUSH THE POWER BUTTON" select DO NOTHING, then APPLY. Then SAVE SCHEME AS and choose any new name. This will disable all sleep modes forever, but at least you can get on with normal use.

If you are geeky, try going into the BIOS and DISABLING anything marked WAKE ON, and disabling anything having to do with automatic power features, and then try hibernating and so forth normally through the OS again. Sometimes this works if there are conflicting settings in the BIOS also trying to increase power efficiency.

Good luck...

SOURCE: blank screen instaed of desktop

This should help.

I purchased the HP-Compaq C765TU Presario, serial # CND81233B5, from Octagon Computers. My notebook came with only "Freedos" because I was going to Dual-boot Windows XP Professional & Linux, but I found out that my notebook is only “Vista Compatible,” because I could not find the drivers for the sound card & Atheros wireless adapter & the Linux I used, Ubuntu does not have all the drivers needed, so I uninstalled, & I added the only Windows Vista OS that I could get here at Octagon Computers in Tacloban City, Leyte, Philippines, “Windows Vista Starter!” (I’m an American married to a beautiful Filipino woman 1 year younger than me, & we are living in the Philippines. I’m, also, Retired USAF.) I went to the HP-Compaq site & downloaded all the new drivers and essential update for my notebook to make sure my notebook was as it should be by HP-Compaq standards. All is well, but only for a little while!

The first problem that I encountered was that after I would Logon, the Welcome screen would do its processing then go to a blank desktop with the cursor - no icons, no taskbar, nothing, so I used “control, alt, delete” to bring up the tasks page & started Task Manager. I found that the “Explorer.exe” was not listed, so I ran a “New Task” from the file menu, & my whole desktop came up. The notebook runs fine after this is done, but I had to do it all the time.

So, I found & bought a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate on the Internet & was forced to do a clean install because it was a full version (not an upgrade), which formatted my Hard-drive, but I had backed up all my files ahead of time, so as to not lose all my important data. I went back to HP-Compaq site & downloaded all the new drivers and essential update to make sure my notebook was as it should be by HP-Compaq standards. After doing this New Install, my notebook worked perfectly! However, the same problem has come back as I had with Windows Vista starter.

I have always used Anti-virus, and I run “System Mechanic Professional 8” because it has all the tools needed to seek & destroy viruses, spybots, etc…, & recover/repair data.

I have never had this problem with Windows XP Professional, but this laptop is designed for Vista, and I didn't know that before I bought it. I'm still looking for a permanent FIX. There must be a way to fix this problem permanently!

SOURCE: control panel does not show bluetooth icon. Why?

Run services.msc (which is the service management tool)
You should see a Bluetooth Support Service, set this to start and then have it automatically start with windows as well.

Bluetooth control panel application: bthprops.cpl


Bluetooth listed in my actual control panel.

However you may need to reinstall BT again and check for the properties of it.

Please check the steps and let me know if it works.

SOURCE: sony vaio ns series notebook windows failed to

The issue may appear due to several reasons such as Windows Update or any recent hardware or software changes in the computer.

1. Please reset the BIOS to default values.
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C96925

2. Try booting the computer to Windows in safe mode by pressing the F8 key at startup.
3. If the issue persists, please check if the hard drive is listed with its volume (size) eg: 500GB in the BIOS main menu. Press F2 key at startup to enter BIOS.
4. If the hard drive is listed, perform a system recovery using the recovery console/partition by pressing the F10 key at startup.
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1013184
5. If issue persists, please use the recovery discs or contact the sony service team to get the computer repaired.
The issue may be related to the operating system files. Getting the recovery partition re-imaged will be the best possible resolution.

Please tell me master password key for power-on password of hp compaq nc6220.i have already tried to remove bios battery but i can not remove my power-on password


You would have to perform this in the BIOS ( Basic Input/Output System) Here are the steps:

1. Restart your computer. 2. Enter the BIOS by pressing the designated key (usually F1, F2, or Delete key).You will be able to enter the BIOS by pressing any of those keys..(this is the black screen that appears before your window starts up) 3. Inside BIOS, navigate the "menu" option by using the "arrow keys" 4. Search for "user password,system password, or power-on password" as it may vary depending to your system. It should show you "enabled or Active" and you have an option to "disable it" 5. Make the "disable password" press enter. 6. Click the "Save Changes" or "Save Changes and Exit" option in the system and it should not ask you for a password the next time you turn your computer on.
---for your reference, the command help is shown at the bottom of the BIOS screen which will guide you which keys to use while navigating inside it.

You have set a password for your BIOS. Try all passwords you would have for something and if that doesn't work, try entering "Compaq".
