It seems like your harddrive has given up the ghost or thrown out the operating system.Power up the machine and enter the bios (Press either Del,F1,F2 to enter) once in bios check the system can see the harddrive,9 If bios can,t recognise the harddrive then it,s dead, If it can then the next step is boot options and make sure it it booting from the harddisk.
If It is then see if there is a recovery progrom in the bios that will enable a system restore,If not then change the boot option to start with a Cdrom and put in the recovery disk that was supplied with the Pc.

When going through the process with the cd you will soon find out if the harddrive is corrupt or Dead.

When using the cd if the system

How to reset your computer to factory settings when it's showing black screen


You cannot. The black screen indicates that the computer has not booted up or that there is something wrong with the video circuits/screen. Black screen not uncommon when you have motherboard failure.

How do you repair a hp521n error


It depends on what kinda error it has..If it is a boot failure is best to see what is saying on screen and select the correct configuration if it is the case..or reinstall the operation system ..If it does not start to show the devices and just has a black screen the issue is physical ..and you have to see whats wrong ..If it is the cpu ..the fan will start but nothing on screen and no action at all not even a beep ..if it is the ram memory it will beep ..and restart in loop ..or freeze with devices on screen but not intelligible ..Ifg it is a hard disk failure will boot up until loading windows but never show windows screen ..and report a issued hard disk ..(in this case may be the bios settings or a unplugged cable on hard disk )
Also when the video card is to blame it may beep in sequence or long ..and showing nothing on screen ..and in this case try to on board video card if it has one ..but after you remove the other one ..
If it is just a classic case of windows failure..and it tries to load it but in error after ..cause it is missing a file or incorrect boot sequence ..just reinstall the operation system or use the recovery partition or disk to do that ..
Let me know more and I will advice after that in case..!

My hp2133 is showing a black screen when ever i am turning it on now ............the screen to totally black and it shows nothing .


The screen is not getting power, the failure of the flexible cord to the lcd screen can also be a possibility. Also the power supply section could have failed thereby faulting the screen.
Hence you will need to check on all these sections of the mother board to confirm the issue.
Get help if technically not experienced.

While the computer is switched on it shows the command insert any harddrive in a black colored screen sometimes and sometimes if it starts it shows a caution "Windows detected a hard disk...


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this will help
