Code purple is a hp and compaq term meaning the machine has detected an error in hardware(adding card etc) the mb's are tatooed and usually the machine is sent back to be re tatooed.sometimes installing the microsorft version of the software, after a format (no restore disk) will stop this from happening.

Images distorted purple what is the cause and how can resolve this

Is the lens clean? only clean with a lens pen or a very soft cloth. (one you would use to clean glasses) Purple also could mean lots of chromatic aberration that only can occur when the lens is not correct in place. Did anything happen with the camera? like falling or bending in a pocket?

I got a code purple trying to restore my computer to its factory settings and now when my computer tries to boot up normally I can't log in using my old password or username and the only way I hav

With the code purple error on the screen, press the shift+f10 to open the cmd prompt.
Whe the cmd prompt opens, type the following command without the quotes "notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd", then after the REM lines add the following code without the quotes "goto cleanup". Save the file and exit notepad and restart your computer by typing the following command without the quotes, "shutdown -r -t 0".
This will cause the checkdmi function in an HP computer to bypass the tattoo check.
Hope this helps

Fuel code 17 on a 1990 Jaguar XJ6 - what does it mean?

That code 17 is for the throttle position sensor located on the bottom of the throttle body. This code is caused 99% of the time caused by a bad sensor. Here's how to test it. Go to the sensor connector and make sure you have 5 volts on pin 2 pink/purple and a ground on pin 1 black/yellow. Then go to pin 3 green/yellow and you should read about .80 volts and it should increase to about 4.90 volts. Make sure the signal does not drop out.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed

Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.
