Which OS are you using? Windows xp, vista, or windows 7?
You can try this:
turn off and turn it back on
as soon as you turn it on, keep pressing F8, you will see another screen which gives you options, choose option says Last known good configuration to see if it takes you all the way to your desktop. Let me know.

Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from hp.com or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.

Sorry to tell you that the best way is to reinstall your operating vista (windows vista) as you can see it is already corrupted. So you better send your computer to the nearest computer shop for proper installation of operating system.

Hi,

Blue screens causes your system not to boot properly. It could be a corrupted video driver, system registry or could be a problem with a hardware component of' your system. Windows update causes also blue screens and incompatible application installed in the system as well.

You may try to boot your computer to following option.

Last known good configuration
Safe mode with networking.

1. Restart the system. At the moment you are turning on your system. After pressing the power button.. Keep on tapping F8 key (on/off) until you have the message "Advanced boot option"

2. Select the 1st option: Last known good configuration.. Press Enter until you have your login screen. If it doesn't work you may try the second option which is the "safe mode with networking".

If the two option won't work, you may need to try repairing the operating system or reinstall windows.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Hung, rebooted,shows purple screen on vista desktop


can you give additional information? the purple screen could also be the dreade BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. do get to see any error message or stop code? can you try to boot using LAST KNOW GOOD CONFIGURATION? by pressing F8 when your computer starts and in the advance boot menu select LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.
normally vista will repair itself when you restart it. was vista able to repair the OS?
Blue screen can be caused by several factors it could be both hardware and software. for software it could be caused by any new software/program installed or updates installed. for hardware it could be from your hard drive to memory depending on the error message. but at this point we shall presume it to be caused by a software and could have corrupted your vista file or hive of our vista.
first option is if you can still go tosafe mode try to do a system restore click start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a highlighted date on the calendar to the left when your computer works well and restore your computer to that date
if you are still having problem get your vista cd ready we may need to fix some files in your computer
boot to cd with your vista inside your cd rom drive. let your windows load up and when you get to see the window welcome setup screen choose repair then type chkdsk /r
still lots to be done but for now let us assume one of the fixes is within this reply

maybe the driver you installing for your graphic card is not compatible with Vista....try to look and download the right driver for your graphic card on the manufacturers website...

Blue Screen of Death.........


Vista is not market friendly yet, don't know if it ever will. U should be able to goto the program manufacturer website and get a vista version, sometimes like Norton, they don't have a vista version until later and then want U to buy the new program. Rule of thumb, use windows programs for a windows os.
