Hi,
Try choosing the SAFE MODE, this will fix some problems and if the widows screen appears at safe mode is good then restart the laptop, this will automatically go to normal mode... if so then the problem is fixed.
Post me back If this doesn't work... good luck.

It's Rommel.

I forgot my password


Forgetting your User password is both annoying and easily fixable.
Turn laptop on and repeatedly hit F8 till a black screen with white writing appears with multiple options for you to select.
Highlight "Safe mode with command prompt" after a few minutes another screen will appear with the following.

C:/ Yourcomputersname/Your user name>
type "net user" press enter
type "net user Your user account name * "
(( Your User Name should appear under neath the "net user" command.
Type "net user Your user name *
It will ask you to enter a password, enter any password you like. Note the cursor will not move to show it recognised a key press this is for security purposes so please dont make a mistake.
It will ask you to re enter the same password
Re enter password then press enter
COMMAND COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY should appear.

Reboot laptop and sign in with original User Name and new password you typed in above.

My hp mini 1000 wont boot up. when i turn it on it goes right to a screen that asks how i want to start up windows ( safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts, and start windows...


hi blinkgirl556

was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.

hope this helps
contact me for any updates

Depends when it asks for P/W is in the black n white screen or logon to windows.

Boot into safe mode and negotiate to passwords in control panel, remove password.(If in windows logon P/W)

If its at boot up in bios then its a complete dismantle of the laptop to remove the cmos battery for 1 hour.

Laptop boots then shuts and continously does it


Hi,
you really need a recovery CD, or windows operating system.
try removing any external devices ( Printers/scanners/ USB devices et,c ) And start the computer up with bare minimum devices attached/connected. it may be one of the external devices causing your problem.
