Question about Intel Motherboard

2 Answers

I have an HP Pavillion a1250n which has a MS-7184 V1.0 that will not boot. When turned on the HP Invent logo screen appears with thw following at the bottom:(Esc=Boot Menu)(F1=Setup)(F10=System Rocovery)(F12=Boor from LAN). But nothing happens when one of these fuctions is selected. How ever if the Esc key is held down while power is turned on "Loaading Boot Menu...." appears but goes no further; and when F1 is held down durinf power up,"Entering Setup..." appears but goes no further. I tried booting with every thing disconnected and still nothing. HELP!

I have the exact same problem with the exact same motherboard. However, disconnecting everything, including the hard drive, all cables from the motherboard except the CPU fan, and pulling all cards still results in the HP boot screen freeze. It makes me think it might be the motherboard itself. Removing the CMOS battery and clearing the CMOS doesn't do anything either.

It sounds as though you might have a problem with BIOS.
You should remove your motherboard battery (little round silver disc) and if you can find (or Google motherboard model#) the CMOS reset jumper, you can remove the battery for 30 seconds and put it back in and reset the CMOS, then see if it boots. If it doesn't, you might need to flash the BIOS, which is not recommended unless you know what you are doing.

    Hi there , sounds more like a hard drive or DVD-RW drive has failed. This happens often and is pretty common to lockup on the 'post' screen. Disconnect the hard drive first and see if the blue HP logo post screen operates like normal and allows you to enter bios at that point. If it does, you found the problem!.

    1. Use the thumb screws on the side panel and slide back the case
    2. Locate the hard drive (depends on model where its located) and disconnect both IDE ribbon and power connect (molex) .
    3. Startup pc and press F1 to enter bios (this should work normally now)

    If you've gotten this far, just replace the drive, install your recovery set that you probably forgot to create while the computer 'was' working, or call HP for another set (should cost you about 40$). Another option is to install a clean copy of windows, but Id suggest having a tech do that for you. Drivers can be a pita (pain in the a**).

    have a good one!

    Further research reveals that the ms-7184 commonly has bad capacitors. I even see capacitor kits for sale on ebay for this motherboard. So the problem is most likely the motherboard.

Sounds like your processor might be heating up too fast. I would take the computer apart, clean it removing all dust from the fans, check to see if the fan is actually spinning and check to make there the silicon glue has not dried up. It could also be that your power supply isnt supplying enough power but if you haven't added any devices that wouldn't be the issue.

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings its an hp pavilion dv4000


  • Using the recovery partition
    • 1 Turn on your computer and insert your recovery disc. Press F10 during start-up to open the console. This opens up the HP recovery console.
    • 2 Click "Next" on the screen that appears.
    • 3 Choose whether you want a nondestructive recovery (one that keeps your files in place) or a destructive one (one that erases your disk and rebuilds your system to factory defaults). If most of your files aren't corrupted or are still usable, go with a nondestructive recovery. Otherwise, perform the destructive recovery.
    • 4 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear to restore your HP Pavillion.
  • Using recovery discs
    • 1 Turn on your computer. Press F1 at the first logo screen to enter the BIOS menu.
    • 2 Move to the Boot Options section of the BIOS menu. Look for the Boot Priority menu.
    • 3 Set the Boot Priority option to booting the CD-ROM first.
    • 4 Insert the first recovery disc into the HP laptop. Then press "Enter" on your keyboard to save your settings and exit. The computer will then reboot into the recovery console.
    • 5 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear, to restore your laptop.

    Unscrew your Laptop HardDrive bay and remove your harddisk first, then try to boot your system wthout the Harddisk inside. If it Boots past the HP Invent Logo Page, then your harddisk is the one that is faulty, if still doesnt, get another good, working RAM, apart from the one in your system, and use it to test your laptop...making sure that the harddisk is still not inside...then if it boots insert your Harddisk back with the new RAM, and restart your system.
    If in the first case it boots (i.e wihout the harddisk inside)...then it means your harddrive is faulty, just retrieve your file on it and get a new one.
    If in the second case it works (i.e with a new external RAM) then just change your RAM instead.
