If the laptop was up and running as the power fail happened, it probably zapped the XP OS,and possibly created a bad sector on the hard drive. You could try reloading the laptop with XP. If it finds a bad sector during installation it should mark and ignore it.

Hp freeze in Windows Start


Try these steps:
1) Turn off your laptop
2) Pull the Battery out
3) Turn the laptop on
4) If it does the same thing, put the Battery back in and reboot it

Doing this may reset the Bios and get your PC booting back into Windows. Please let me know if this helps!

Media test failure message. Reboot and Select proper boot device


A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.


In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.


It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.



Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.


If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."

Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system


From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".


If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.


Reset the hard drive.


This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.


If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.

This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.


Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.

Repeat Step 2 if necessary.


If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.


hope this helps

Battery went flat and laptop turned off pluged laptop charger in laptop was unable to bootup properly and then keeps rebooting and rebooting.


Try and go into safe mode and select system restore. To get into safe mode press F8 before as the computer begins to boot. When you get to safe mode press start and then select program files and select accerioes, under that heading select system tools and click on system restore. Follow instructions and select 2 days or the lastest restore point in order to restore system back to it's original state.

If you cannot reboot at all to safe mode, you will require to restore the system or reinstall windows using you xp, vista or recovery disks for laptop. Good Luck!

Can't boot up laptop


If your Usb port works, then the mobo is working, so possible graphics problem. Try booting up in safe mode(normally pressing F8) on boot up then highlight 'start windows in safe mode', to see if Windows will load with only minimal drivers, if so restart again, pressing F8 again, but this time highlight 'start windows with last known good configuration' Doing any of these 2 things can be done in any order, either last known good config first or safe mode.
