Question about HP Smart Buy Notebook

HP Compaq 6710b is hanging up in the boot up.

HP Compaq 6710b starts the boot up and the Windows XP logo appears but hangs up for several minutes. Error message pops up and says that some unknown hardware or software problem has occured and suggests rebooting with last known working option. I reboot with that option (and others now) but it does the same thing. I looked for a reset button but no luck...I don't see an obvious button on the bottom or back. Any suggestions?

My laptop not getting started and if i try to boot from windows setup its getting hanged

Try running the Check Disk Utility. Hopefully your operating system is still there to run the check disk utility. I do see where you say you ran a format which might have wiped it out.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I have HP Compaq 6710b, Some days it got restarted and then never came through in OS (XP). After POST the screen got blank and nothing happened. I reinstalled my OS by using Repairing Options. Now when...

The hard disk got damaged and it's dying - the boot take longer because the boot sector was damaged and it had to be relocated.
Create a reinstall disk with the utility HP has installed in the laptop, buy a new hard disk and install it and then reinstall Windows with the disk you created.

My HP compaq nx6110 windows xp sp3 hangs at boot

Take a look at this post that deals with a HP nx6110 laptop with random freeze ups. If the described symptoms also happen on your laptop. If you do experience random freezeups or slow DVD you're facing the same FSB chip problem. All peripherals, USB ports included, are connected on the Front Side Bus. Poor soldering causes intermittent contact which in turn results in hanging, slow, or totally non bootable (stuck at HP logo) laptop. Hope this helps.

My computer hangs up just before the log in screen and windows logo. How do i fix it?


Ok, if you have a installation disc, insert it and boot from the disc. Once you get the option, try a start up repair.

If you cannot find a disc, try booting in "safe mode", once in windows, do a system recovery to the last known good settings.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards
