Your computer is stuck on the manufacturer's "splash screen" and not starting up normally. This is often because of memory problems. Unplug the computer, take off the side panel, and make sure the memory modules are firmly seated in their sockets. You can download a manual from HP here that gives details on how to open the case, where the parts are and how to install the memory.

Your computer may also have corrupted CMOS data. CMOS is a kind of memory on the motherboard that stores information the board needs to start up correctly. You can try clearing this memory and see if the system will start. This page at HP explains how to do that.

If neither of these suggested fixes get the computer to finish starting up, the motherboard itself may have failed. A computer service shop could check it out and tell you what more needs to be done.

Hope this gets you running again, and thanks for using Fixya!

Ever since I bought the HP DVD1270i DVD writer, I am getting a blue screen hardware warning when I shut down Windows 7. Does any one know if it is a firmware issue?

It is windows 7 issue. Windows 7 is having the same problem like windows vista. They are actually the same operating system, but Microsoft rename to windows 7. Try taking the burner out and to see if it loads up.

Computer will not boot

If your HP isn't too old you can use the built in recovery to restore your computer to factory condition. Please keep in mind if you run this you will lose all of your information on the computer and it will be as it was when you bought it

Restart the computer and press F10. This should load the HP recovery software. Follow the onscreen prompts.

Hope this helps.
