Question about HP Computers & Internet
My computer just recently had a change. I would stop. The hard drive light would go off. The computer and everything would be froze. All the fans are working. All the diagnostic things seem to be ok except for the Windows Startup Repair service, it says it cannot repair what is wrong. Then, after I usually get the Windows Startup Repair to do its thing, the computer will load windows and I can use it again. For a while. No telling when it will stop. I have gone through the computer and cleaned it up and watched it running with the cover off. Seems like everything is working, all the fans, nothing getting too hot.
I have reimaged my computer five or six times to original factory settings to remedy this. This last time is the most solid I have had. However, before I go for the hard drive, is it the hard drive. Or, is it the power supply possibly?
Go with a known good working hard drive, its the easiest thing to replace and instead of reimaging it, install windows from scratch and then load the drivers for whatever it doesnt find and then see how it runs, if the lockups stop happeneing then load the apps that you want and everything should be okay.
