HP pavilion ze4600 XP operating system safe mode etc. will not load CD restore does not work either? help

When I turn this on the "windows did not start successfully" page comes up and starting normally looks like it is going to load XP BUT when it goes to load the hard drive clicks and a brief shot of a blue screen appears and then goes blank nothing! Safe mode just starts showing a bunch of partition lines and then when it stops it goes blank again, this happens on all the safe modes. I have an "Operating System CD" and a"Driver Recovery CD" and they do absolutely nothing when I put them in the CD and start the computer, the CD is running I can hear it but nothing comes up on the screen. Does anyone know what is the mater here?? Thanks John

I am using HP pavilion with Windows xp OS installed on. When i turn the power on, a black screen saying "sorry for the inconvenience, but windows did not started succesfully, -safe mode, safe mode...


You need to find your "Operating System CD" sometimes they give you this sort of stuff with your computer but if not, find one from somewhere. Put the CD in when the computer starts and you will see a message saying "Press any key to boot CD" or something similar, boot the CD and press install Windows XP - when you have pressed F8 to agree to Terms and Conditions, it will give you an option to overwrite your current system or Repair. Click repair and it will start installing stuff. DONT WORRY - its not deleting your information its just fixing your computer. When the installation has finished, you will be sorted! - Make sure its a Microsoft windows XP CD though, otherwise you cannot repair your system.

Hope this helps.

How to Reset HP Pavilion Password on Notebook Computer


kathli.jpg

Pavilion BIOS password reset is commonly needed. Today, we talk about HP Pavilion Windows password reset solutions. Our Windows OS users can set up administrator account and encrypt it with password to enter the OS. This actually prevents unauthorized users from operating on your system. While, if we Pavilion PC users forget the encrypted password and can't login Windows, now what to do for HP Pavilion password reset?


Firstly, if there are not important files on our HP Pavilion notebook, we can reinstall system by deleting all data and cleaning system. Most of us may hope opt for other ways to bypass the Pavilion login password.


Secondly, please think that is there still another account for us to enter Pavilion PC. In Windows XP, Vista, there is HP Pavilion default administrator which has blank password. For Windows 7, the built-in administrator account is disable defaulted. Only if we set it as enable, the account can be used at the moment.
Take HP Pavilion Windows XP password reset from Safe Mode as example:
a. Press "F8" when Pavilion laptop starts.
b. At the "Advanced Boot Options" windows, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and Enter, then PC enters Safe Mode.
c. Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Note that if we have set this HP Pavilion administrator password, we need to input the password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
d. Start - Control Panel - User Accounts.
e. Select the locked account and reset password for the locked account.
f. Restart Pavilion laptop and login with the account newly password reset.


Thirdly, the least troublesome solution on Pavilion password recovery is to opt for password reset program tool. With the program and a CD/DVD/USB disk, we can easily remove the password for locked computer. Take Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
Step1. Burn .iso file to a CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive on an accessible PC;
Step2. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive;
Step3. Recover forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.

Certainly that the 3 ways can make sure we reset Pavilion password finally. The Windows Password Recovery Corporation can be used for Windows 7, XP, Vista, and Windows Server 2003, 2008 domain password, etc.

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

Pavilion ze4600 will not start


The blue screen that you see is what they call "the blue screen of death". The error that you have is Unmountable Boot Volume. This is caused by the operating system not being to load due to hard drive errors. This happens due to the computer being shutdown improperly or hard drive problem. I suggest that you contact the manufacturer of the computer so they can try and restore the computer without formatting or changing the hard drive.

HP Pavillion dv 5000


have you recently loaded any new hardware or software to the system.  if so... this may be the source of the problem.  you would want to load in safe mode and remove whatever you changed.  that would then fix the problem.  i wouldn't jump to the conclusion that your operating system is corrupt just yet.  it sounds as though it is doing exactly what it should when it comes upon a conflict in the system.
