Computer wont install windows strange problems ensue.

Its with my hp pavilion slimline s7520n.
The OS was having problems so I decided to reinstall windows XP. It will boot from disk and install windows. after the file copy proses on disk is done it should reboot to finish the installation, but it doesn't continue the installation! I get weird colored blocks on the press any key to boot from CD... screen to.

    No. I have installed windows countless times before on computers. It is supposed to go the the gui install but doesn't. The computer was having problems before ware the screen would go blank if you tried to use IE. (strange i know.) I assumed the video was overheating or it was some driver related issue. But now i am thinking this is all related. The colored "DOS" squares i mentioned show up on random parts of the press any key screen.

Are you pressing any key to boot from the cd when you get that message??

after windows finishes copying all the installation files during the first stage (dos mode) of the os installation you get a reboot, after the reboot, you should get that message that says press any key to boot from the cd, DON'T PRESS ANY KEY (or you will start again), leave it cd in.. just don't press any key... hopefully the installation process will continue on it's own onto the next stage (graphical mode).

if the computer just goes back to the dos mode without you pressing anything the problem may actually be a real problem and it may require further troubleshooting..

see how that goes with the first suggestion and post back if needed.

good luck

Change HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n Video Card?


The on-board RadeonXpress 200M graphics is a dog. It offloads a lot of work to your cpu, and shares system memory which ties up the bus and detracts from the memory available to the OS.

The s7520 suffers from thermal problems due to it's size and poor ventilation. It also has a very limted power supply. Therefore, your choices are also limited. If you could score Radeon X600 or X1300 with 128MB for cheap somewhere it would be a worthwhile upgrade. It does need to be PCI (not PCI-E) and half-height (low profile).

Need to format the hard drive for HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n, but I don't have the recovery disk. Any ideas on how to do it?


If you own the computer and it is still in warrenty then i would call up HP and explain the situation and have them send you a recovery disk, if it is not in warrenty they may still do it but if it doesnt work your other option is to purchase one or to Pirate one which wouldnt be illegal if you used the product key that came with your computer.

I downloaded a copy of windows vista and it expired,im trying to reinstall my hp windows xp recovery cd and its asking me for a password,cant remember if i ever did set up a password for this pc.how can...


Hello,

At what point is it asking for a password? Has the computer formatted the hard drive yet? It sounds like you might be going in to Recovery Console instead of installing a fresh copy of Windows.

What you want to do is press Enter at the first screen, agree to the license, and then format your hard drive. After that, it will go through the installation without asking for a password. Remember - you'll lose all your data when you format.
