1 Answer

HP TOWER Hello, I have an hp pavilion tower and everytime I turn it on, it turns on and then says windows/system32/config/windows it says to insert the original cd to repair and press r at the first screen to start repairing. I tried doing that and I used some other websites that explained other tips, but nothing works. Please write back when you can. Thanks

Why is my hp pavilion a1220n product number ED904AA-ABA?


Try removing the 512 MB memory to see if it does work with the 1GB stick only.

It's not the power supply that does have a problem. It has something with your memory stick.

Dell HP Pavilion screen scrambled


Either your monitor died or your video card/chip died. Test your tower with a different monitor or test your monitor with a different tower.

Hp pavilion f1340.uk will not turn on at all, just the green light flickers at the rear of the tower?


Could be a number of things wrong with this tower.

-If the computer stays at a black screen with a white cursor, it means it's missing system files and the operating system cannot start up. A reinstall is needed.

-If your computer won't power on, it could be either the power supply or motherboard, or sometimes, both.

-Also, check to see if the RAM is properly inserted into the proper slots.

Hope this was helpful.

Sounds like you may have bad RAM. Try removing all of the RAM modules on your motherboard and put only one in the first slot. Start the computer and see if it works.
