Bad RAM usually causes the computer to crash during the process. An orderly failure to complete the installation usually means a bad hard drive.

If you have a restore partition on the drive it should come up when you press F11 during the boot. If this is not possible the a clean install should work. I have found that the drive needs to be wiped clean before the install. I use a program called "Kill-Disk", however there are others available. Each time Windows starts an install it creates several other partitions and this clears them. Also as mentioned by another is to check your RAM modules.
Good Luck

I wish I could tell you exactly how I did it, but I can't. I pushed the function buttons (F5, F8, F12, F anything) over and over and over...and over... again after pushing the power button until I accidentally wound up on a page that gave me the option to do a factory reset. For me, this wasn't a problem, because I wanted the laptop clean to sell anyway. I did the reset and the computer started right up.

Your issue is related to data corruption of some kind. During a windows install this can be caused by one or more of the following. Failing hard drive, bad RAM, faulty cd drive of badly scratched windows install disk. If you attempted to do a factory restore on the laptop and are getting that message I would say its probably either a failing hard drive or a faulty RAM module.

    as far as how to solve the issue goes, you really need to find out what component is faulty in the laptop and replace it. then reinstall windows.

Hello,

I understand that notebooks boots into safemode, but when you are trying to reinstall the OS it is freezing, let me assist you in this regard.

As the notebook is frezing while installing the OS, first we need to check the Harddrive.

In DV6000 notebooks, there will be option to do Harddrive selft test.

1 Restart the notebook
2. At HP logo screen keep pressing the F10 key to open BIOS.
3. In the BIOS you can find the Diagnose Tab. (Select it)
4. Under that click on harddrive self test.

If the test pass, you need another set of recovery disks to Restore notebook to factory settings.

If the test fails, then you need to replace the harddrive.

If the notebook is under warranty, then you will get new harddrive from HP.

SOURCE: HP Pavilion dv6810us does not start...

since the system got dropped off, different components would have been affected. From the information that you have provided, the LCD and motherboard appears to be two of the affected components. Since it is difficult to determine all the components that may have been affected by the accident, I would suggest contacting HP for support and ask if there is a repair center where you can take your computer for thorough testing. If you have an HP diagnostics utility, connect an external monitor to your computer and run the diagnostics. Note any error codes of beep codes which can help isolate the situation.

When you reinstall xp you will not have to reformat the drive. Just reinstall the operating system. As long as you are in safe mode back up what you need to then reinstall xp.

First of all the best thing to try to do before trying anything else is to try for some more time to remember the pattern again to get it working again. If not just go through the below mentioned points which might help you to resolve this problem for now.
-> Try giving 5 times with wrong pattern once you do that you will get the notification message saying that you have tried more than 5 times with wrong pattern wait for 30 seconds. When you say OK you will see a new option showing up in the bottom of your screen which says "Forgot pattern". Just select that and give in your registered Gmail account details with the MID tablet and there you go, your tablet will be unlocked again.
-> The next thing which you can try is to reset your MID tablet completely when your tab starts up just long press the Home button + Volume up button which will go into the reset mode and follow the onscreen instruction.
-> If none of the above helped then you need to completely remove your Android OS which is there in your MID tablet and install back again the Android OS version.

Hook a external keyboard to the laptop, if okay! unless you have pressed something that locked it down, the laptop keyboard will need to be changed. But if both have same problem you may have a virus, device driver issue. If mouse pad works try a system restore before this occured.

Won't turn on


You may have hard drive issues or corrupted window files, remove hardware and reseat it back in position, sometimes this will correct the problem, next sub out the memory one at a time, causes a lot of strange symptoms. If none of these works, use the recovery disc "if you made one" The final option is a computer store to resolve the issues.

The screen just keeps saying that windows didnt start succesfully and it gives me 5 options to start none of which works please help??


Welcome to Fixya!!!
If all the the options in the Advance option wont work. 1.Removed your battery, ac adapter and drain you power button for 5 to 10 seconds. 2. Used only ac adapter and turn on the laptop keep on tapping f8 3. Tried any option again. first choice would be last known good configuration. then try safemode 4.If you are successful in going to safemode, try to do system restore. If it fails to load all oftions, and you dont have any important files -Try to reboot pc and hit f3 to reset the computer to factory setting. it will open a prompt to do a complete restore. If f3 does not work- the recovery partition is already corrupted. -You need to call MSI tech support to get a recovery disc from MSI -You need to resinstall the Operating System.

If you have your computer Recovery disk, place the disk in the drive and restart the computer. It sounds like your OS is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.

My windows explorer keep restarting again and again and never resolves the problem


there are 2 things I suggest for you to try for now!

1. if the problem recently started try to use system restore to go back to the configuration you have in a day before the problem started.

2. you may be dealing with a virus. I suggest to update your antivirus and malware programs and run complete scans.

try those 2 and post back

Can't unlock Samsung Hue?


samsung hue r500 and having problem when accidentally or curiously selected nam2.. after it powers off then on again by itself, it brings u to a little window (initial programming needed) and the enter code (password). as you will notice none of your 4 digit passwords will work, default wont work, u have to push the back or end call button to get away from the enter code window. enter ##626# and hit send button. it will bring u to option to select nam1 or nam2, select nam1.. go to next screen, enter in the sdc code which is 000000, (6 zeros), enter or next screen, make sure that mid is same as ur cell number, go to next screen, it will show ur number again, next screen, will be sid and nid numbers... they are what they should be, go next screen, then i think there is option to be done, view, edit choose done, next screen then it will program by itself. powering on then off, bringing u back to same screen with the same window of initial programming needed, just go to enter code, and enter the last 4 of your cell number, and it will let u through,.. just remember to go back in to your phone options menu and change the nam setting in there back to nam1 also. then it will power off and on again. program should be complete... you can always also dial *228 and option 2 to reprogram your phone again to make sure.

Toshiba M115-3094 start up problems


Okay it sounds like you need to reinstall windows. However, doing so will erase everything on your hard drive. So we need to get that data off your hard drive. You can do this either by purchasing an internal hard drive to usb cable and hooking it up to another computer or by booting with a bootable linux distro, connecting a flash drive and copying the info over that way. Once you have the data safe, you can try booting from your XP disc and try the repair option; this will remove the windows files and leave your data in tact but you should really back it up first.

Also you may want to run a chkdsk on the drive; that may help solve the problem.
