Question about Computers & Internet

I have a HP 2415 PDA and the touch screen does not work. I did a soft boot and it didn't change anything. I then did a hard boot and that didn't fix the problem either. After the hard boot, the PDA needs to be set up by touching the screen which doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Nope, the touch screen could be physically damaged. Some work on acoustic surface wave technology, some use resistive sensors,
there are many different types of systems, I have no experience with your particular model.

It could also be a software/driver problem or a catch 22 operating
system bug. Your best bet is to phone the manufacture and ask him how to run system diagnostics, is available.

My hp pc wont turn on whats wrong with it? Do i need to get a new pc or can it be fixed? There is an error code when i run the boot menu " biohd-5"


Pressing F11 (see User Guide) when booting may lead you to recovery options, but I would backup data first... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=4007138

The hard drive, motherboard, or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore or Reload on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer. Good luck.

While your system is still booting from start, keep hitting F11 to get past that point then proceed with the system recovery.

Hi,
This might be an issue with the Hard drive or the operating system installed on the hard drive.
Try to access BIOS screen tapping on F10 on restart.
If you are able to access Bios try to run the Short smart self test on the Hard drive.
To run the test follow the steps as follows:
on the main window you will see 1 st drive 2nd drive 3rd drive 4th drive.
besides these drive letters you will find your Hard drive listed.
Highlight that and press enter.
on the next screen highlight Smart support and press enter.
on the next screen select Short smart self test and run the test.
If it gives an error code that means the hard drive has gone bad.
2)If not then come back on the main page by clicking on ESC button till you come back to the main page.then Press F5 select yes to load set up defaults and press enter.Press F10 once to save configuration changes and press enter.
It will boot to windows.
3)Still if you face the same issue then you need to perform the recovery using the recovery cds.
4)If you don't have the recovery cds then you can contact HP support and order the cds and perform the recovery.
This should resolve your issue.
Thanks.

its basically telling you that your master hard drive with O/S installation cannot be found in the booting system...Check if your master HD is not corrupted and see if your O/S still exist or maybe wiped out..

Your startup got corrupted. If you have an emergency boot floppy, you should be able to get to DOS. This may not work unless Floppy is in your Boot order. If your lucky, you have a cd/dvd in the boot order. Try to put your original XP or Vista disks in and see if you can boot. You can then see files.

I have an HP DV 2000 (DV 2415 NR) which I bought last year. Last night for the first time I turned it on but nothing appeared on the screen. It was pitch blue. Would you please help me...


HI, First thing you want to do is to start the PC and while its booting press F8 two or three times.
If you've done it properly a screen with couple of option will appear. Choose the LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.

The PC will then try to start Windows.
If it doesn't work try the same thing but this time choose the START WINDOWS IN SAFE MODE option.

If it still doesn't work you will have to reinstall your OS.

Hope it helps
Please let me know if you need anything
cheers
