Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000T Notebook
Not able to boot up. Using F8 to get into safe mode. Scroll to safe mode and hit enter. Goes through the steps but keeps repeating the same procedure and going right back to safe mode. Did download new Norton Anti Virus software before the issue happened. Any suggestions?
Try this, get a boot able CD copy of RIPLINUX 6.2 nonX. Go into your Compact bios and select CDROM as the first boot device. Open cd dvd player and install 6.2 Power down and then power up to 6.2 Install GRUB and select HARD DRIVE Partition #2 from the menu and wait.
Now here is what will happen. GRUB will load and execute drive partition #2 which contains the original factory install for your Compact V5000T. Warning!!!! You will lose any customized programs that where added after you bought your computer (goes back to factory default operating system) by reformatting #1 partition. There are utilities that can retrive the contents of a formatted partition, but this is beyond the limits of this topic. Use Google to search for those utilities. They are sometimes free.
