My laptop is a hand-me-down from about 2004. it has been slow for awhile, but worked fine. today i went to open it and it shut down. it then turned back on and shows a blue screen that says "Your computer has encountered a problem and shut off to prevent further damage". it only shows up for a second and then shuts off. after it shuts off, it turns back on and does it all over again. what do i do?

While the computer is booting up you should be able to hit F8 repeatedly and be offered the option to boot into safe mode. This will allow you to access your files.

Since the computer is already slow, I would back up these files to a thumb drive and just reformat using restore disks if you have any. If you don't let me know and we can explore further.

Turn ON computer and press [F8] key.
On the menu, select "Start computer in last known good configuration" (or similar wording).
It should start normally.

I can't close my page with the red bottom on the top left hand side today to open another page. Would you please help me. Thank you.


Try a reboot, that should correct that problem.
If you are unable to shut it down from the menu bar, press and hold the power button until it turns off. When it reboots, it will ask if you want to open all the programs you were running when you shut it down. I usually do not open them, because never sure which one caused the problem.

Have the starter solenoid checked. With a continuity tester check if the positive terminal on the solenoid receives a signal when the switch is turned. If it doesn't then the switch is at fault.

Sounds as if dimmer slider/switch is going to ground on this model the headlight switch should have a dimmer thumbwheel, if it is all the way up and then you feel the indent and that should turn the inside domelamp on, if it does not the switch is bad. also check your vanity mirror covers, sometimes the little pins that shot off the light when you close the mirror covers stick open and run your battery down over night or in a few hours. Charge battery and then check these lights first, depress white pins to shut off.

I bought HP Pavilion dv5 6 months ago and fan not working


Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.
