Question about Computers & Internet

Stuck in display

I've just purchased an open box HP Pavilion GX6 Media Center PC (m8330f) from Best Buy. It was a display model. I've got it all set up, but it about every 5 minutes, it runs "Resetting Experience", which wipes out any changes I've made, and brings back the little sale add pop-up. When it starts up, it runs A.R.C.H.I.E., which seems to be set as an Administrator. I can't take it off administrator, because I need it's password.
How can I take control of my possesed PC?

About the only thing you can do is reinstall windows. I bought a emachines t1100 demo model a long time ago and had the same problem. The only thing I could do was reinstall windows and go from there.

Hi .... I tried to plug in an external USB drive that had previoulsy been attached to my PVR. Runnign Win 7 Ultimate. Got message about an INITIO driver being installed and then the drive access light...

is the usb drive still attached? if so, unplug it from the pc and see if this fixes the boot issue. If so, you most likely have your bios set up to boot from usb first. You can either change this order or remove the usb drive every time you reboot.

Getting the error 0x4001100200001005 while performing the recovery

The HP site indicates that the error refers to the Disks that you are trying to use to recover the system.
If you have access to the recovery partition, then try the restore from there.
Normally, the restore has a media option and a hard disk option. The media option is dependent on the discs you ceated. If those disks are scratched, dirty or in any way not readable, you will get this error. Yoiu can retry the install and see if it resolv3es itself

Login freeze-up HP Pavilion Media Center m8530f PC

First of all, dont go with a name brand and you wont have to deal with the company BS. you can build (or have built) a better computer from someone like tigerdirectdotcom and save a couple hundred dollars. granted you will have to buy an operating system for it , but you will want a system disk to reinstall the next time it crashes. Remember.. it's not IF your computer will crash , it's WHEN. I would be happy to recommend some parts or at least a barebone starter box if you tell me what you want to use the computer reason for overkill..
