This is ALSO a common problem for people who don't shut down their computers properly - they get away with it 99 out of a 100 times - and then this problem.

Diagnosis: It sounds like the Boot Sector is damaged (if the Computer Hums and Lights up but nothing else happens) and the cure for this is a BootFix (using DOS) or a reinstall (but selecting Repair instead of Install).

This will be done under Warranty so don't mess with it.

Take it back to the store you bought it from, it will still be under warranty. If you do anything to your computer you will void the warranty and thereby be responsible for the cost of any repairs which might have otherwise been covered by the Warranty.

HP Pavillion m7750n has already had the hard drive replaced almost two years ago. The computer will be four in January. It stopped working about five months ago and I finally decided I had enough time to...

Either the disk is faulty or the the boot block is corrupted. If you have the operating system CD, you can try to reload it. Doing so will wipe out anything you have on the drive. If it reloads, you will be back in business. It the disk is faulty, the OS will not load.

You may want to take this computer into the Big Box store and have it evaluated before youtry to do this repair.

Thanks for your interest in

Ps2 slimline parental control code

try this
  1. Bring up the screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
  2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
  3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
  4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings
