Question about Computers & Internet

Installation problems I bought a brand new HP laptop for my son. On the initial start up the installation was apparently interuppted. Now I don't know whether my boy knocked anything or not but the machine is no coming with the message " The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation. However, when you do this the same message appears. I think it has part loaded but stopped. Is there something that I can do to reverse this process and start again or does the laptop need replacing? HELP!!! His xmas has been ruined and the company I bought from are obviously closed!! Many thanks

I presume you are installing from the CD? Can you select to not boot from CD, and get to a DOS prompt, and then format C: drive? You need to delete the failed installation and start again.

HP COMPAQ 6510b RUNS SOOO SLOW


My recommendation: Install XP.
Well, not that there actually something wrong, but it initially came with XP or Vista. It depends. HP puts it a XP. Check your MS Product key sticker.


It is a simply determination that the laptop just does not have a enough resources to run Win 7 effectively. How do I know, I am using an HP 2.3GHz with XP. I tried Win 7 awhile back and immediately removed it. If fact, I do clean install of XP at least once a year. I do test more software than most.


Here is my Slow Windows Machine! default fix.
  • Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE).
  • Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.


Oh yea, in your case disable AREO, and u

When you replace the motherboard/CPU you most likely need to re-install Windows on your hard disk with the HP recovery CD.
If you have a Windows installation CD you can use this to re-install Windows.
Boot up with your Windows installation CD to install the operating system on your hard disk, you will also need the product installation code, this is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop.

I'm repairing laptops for eight years and this problem has something to do either with the HDD or your RAM. If you have two modules of RAM try either of the two if it will pose the same problem. If not definitely the culprit is your HDD. It doesn't matter if it is brand new that it will work perfectly. They are transported and we don't know how they were handled.

I have an HP Photosmart C6180. When I bought it - window 7 had not come out. I bought a new computer about 6 months ago w/Windows 7. I have gone to the HP website to download the driver for Window 7. ...


I would suggest you download the Windows 7 driver and software update available on the following page:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4062&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=1153494

This should update your software to work with your new operating system.


I hope this is helpful. If so, please take a moment and leave me a positive rating.

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.


I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7
