Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
My Satellite A60-1591ST shut down abruptly and wouldn't boot back up. It would start - to the point that the Toshiba logo showed - then shut back down. The next day it started and ran much of the day. Then at night, it did the same thing again. The next morning it started up, but I have been reluctant to us it. Does this sound like a hardware problem? Should I try reloading the OS?
Have you installed any new hardware or loaded any new software lately? If not you might have some corrupt files. Reboot the laptop in safe mode. Just hit F8 a few times. It should give you a menu. Arrow to safe mode and hit enter. After it finishes booting to safe mode, do a system restore. Click Start>click Start>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a date before a couple of days before you noticed anything happening. Restore will take a few minutes. When it's restored and booted, I want you to do one more thing. Click on start>run>type in cmd and hit ok. This will take you to your command prompt. Type chkdsk /f It will tell you it can't run it right now do wan't to run it the next time you start up? say yes. Close the window. Restart the computer and the check disk program will run and fix your errors.
If this has fixed your problem please rate it as fixed. If nit, just add a comment add I'll be happy to help you out more. Thanks.
