Question about Computers & Internet
I have downloaded from HP RAM/ROM update installed it and then the computer was switched off accidentally and when I switched it back on it died on me...
OK, Tap F8 when the computer is starting up.
When you see a menu, choose "Last Known Good Configuration".
That may undo what you did.
If not, hit "Delete" when the computer is starting up to get into BIOS.
Look for "Halt On" and choose "No Errors".
Save and restart.
If still nothing, get into your BIOS again.
Look for "External Cache" and "Disable".
Restart and see if you can start up windows.
If you can, get into BIOS again and "Enable External Cache" as this will effect your system's performance.
If you still can't get into windows try Safe Mode by tapping F8 again.
Do a "Scan Disk" by clicking on computer, right clicking your C: drive and look under tools. If necessary, do a "Disk Defrag" after.
The second last step is a "System Recovery" which you should look up how to do for your computer, as HP is different from other computers etc.
The last step? Reinstall operating system.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone. or
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
