Unless you are familiar with computer hardware you should take your PC to a technician. I think your processor is probly getting too hot. Your computer will shut. itself off if the processor over heats. Try opening up your case and blowing out all the dust you can with air duster. You may need to replace your processor, video card, ram or motherboard. All of those can cause the problem you are having

HI,THAT IS A USUAL ISSUE RELATED TO THE ELECTROMAGNET WHICH IS ENGAGED ON "P or N" position.Charge your battery overnight,try your handbrakes,if they work fine,just leave the car in whenever you stop and put your handbrake on.This won discharge then the battery unless there is a unrelated electrical fault in the system.

Hp laptop has blinking red square above touch pad, comp. won't allow for reboot or restoring to factory conditions


If you do an illegal shut down which is power off by holding down the power switch for 8 seconds. The HP computer will then boot with the scandisk program, which will restore your hdd to perfection. Windows XP or later now use 'system restore' to rearrange registry from a previous calender date that the computer used to work perfectly.

My HP Pavilion PC will not start. The on button indicates it is on but it is not. Monitor says "no signal". The power supply failed a few years ago and it was replaced. Do you think this is what happened...


I do not know exactly what is going on with your computer, but if the light by the power button comes on and stays on then you can try pulling the ram out of it and then put it back in. A few years ago i had a compaq computer and all of a sudden it would not come on but the light by the power button was on. I thought the computer was shot but i contacted a tech and he told me to pull the ram out and put it back in. I did this and the computer came back to life and worked fine. Good luck. I hope this works for you.

My computer will not start.


No way to tell for sure, but the "messed up image with stripes" suggests a video component. Unfortunately most laptop components are not replaceable, which means you probably need a new laptop. Save your hard drive, the data on it is still there and you will be able to either copy the files you need or just connect it to your next computer.

HP Pavilion A6130N setup error


Did you buy the computer new? It should have come with recovery disks, also called operations disks. I have had to do this with my hp pavilion lap top a few time over the past few years so that it would run faster. If the recovery disks aren't in there, call the company. They are always supposed to be included. I've always had good luck with hp, you might even go to hp's website. It's really good as well.
