HP 550 will not get to the log in stage


This is a known issue with Vista. Microsoft has not documented a solution but SP2 for Vista addresses this issue.

You can try running chkdisk from the repair console (insert Vista installation DVD and select repair).

If you have backup CDs or DVDs, try to restore your system.
I nothing helps, you will have to manually back-up your data and reinstall Windows.

To back-up your data you might want to remove the hard disk and connectit to another working PC as a secondary hard disk. Then simply boot up,copy your data and plug the hard disk back in.

You can download theVista SP2 from here. Also download and install SP1 before installing SP2.

Thank you.

Hp 550 laptop; frozen screen then when re started blank screen


1. Can you get to any screen in the BIOS?
If so, your screen is ok. This may sound silly, but, power OFF and remove & re-seat the memory modules. Video uses some of that.

=== OR ===
2. Connect a monitor to the VGA connector on the back and use the laptop that way and so you can further debug the system

No audio device installed.


It's unlikly that HP will relesae he needed Vista drivers for your sound device.
That has been a problem with Vista since day 1.
If you want your sound back, you should go back to XP.
Windows Vista use a new software architecture, and hardware devices must comply with it, in order to be used by the new OS.
Sorry

HOW TO INSTALL XP IN VISTA OS OF LAPTOP HP PAVILIION


Hi there.
The only way you can install XP on a Vista machine is to install "virtual XP" onto Vista using Virtual PC 2007.
Here is a site that will take you through the procedure step-by-step and gives links to download Virtual PC and install it onto the machine.
Please be aware that some drivers may not work whilst using XP when you have it installed.

Shared HP 6122 printer with double side print


The original CD shipped with your HP6122 likely was produced prior to Vista. If you used the original CD to install the HP6122 driver on your new laptop, you likely do not have the latest version of the Vista driver. If this is the case, go to the HP website and install the Vista driver that matches with your laptop op system http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=83028&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=88749

Perferences in XP look different than in Vista, but you should be able to find the 2-sided peference for your laptop driver by going to the Control Panel > Printers > and selecting peferences using the HP6122 icon. In some versions the 2-side preference is in the "advanced" tab. Using the "advanced" tab will likely have check boxes rather than a full setting screen as in XP, but both work the same. You should see all the 2-side features present with radio buttons to select your preference. Likewise, when printing in Vista, you can select settings different than default preferences, in which case you can change the defaults for a single document print. Again, this will look different than in XP, but you should find the 2 side feature available either as a feature tab or in the "advanced" tab.

Cant see desktop screen


Try this if your problem sounds the same or similar:

I purchased the HP-Compaq C765TU Presario, serial # CND81233B5, from Octagon Computers. My notebook came with only "Freedos" because I was going to Dual-boot Windows XP Professional & Linux, but I found out that my notebook is only “Vista Compatible,” because I could not find the drivers for the sound card & Atheros wireless adapter & the Linux I used, Ubuntu does not have all the drivers needed, so I uninstalled, & I added the only Windows Vista OS that I could get here at Octagon Computers in Tacloban City, Leyte, Philippines, “Windows Vista Starter!” (I’m an American married to a beautiful Filipino woman 1 year younger than me, & we are living in the Philippines. I’m, also, Retired USAF.) I went to the HP-Compaq site & downloaded all the new drivers and essential update for my notebook to make sure my notebook was as it should be by HP-Compaq standards. All is well, but only for a little while!

The first problem that I encountered was that after I would Logon, the Welcome screen would do its processing then go to a blank desktop with the cursor - no icons, no taskbar, nothing, so I used “control, alt, delete” to bring up the tasks page & started Task Manager. I found that the “Explorer.exe” was not listed, so I ran a “New Task” from the file menu, & my whole desktop came up. The notebook runs fine after this is done, but I had to do it all the time.

So, I found & bought a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate on the Internet & was forced to do a clean install because it was a full version (not an upgrade), which formatted my Hard-drive, but I had backed up all my files ahead of time, so as to not lose all my important data. I went back to HP-Compaq site & downloaded all the new drivers and essential update to make sure my notebook was as it should be by HP-Compaq standards. After doing this New Install, my notebook worked perfectly! However, the same problem has come back as I had with Windows Vista starter.

I have always used Anti-virus, and I run “System Mechanic Professional 8” because it has all the tools needed to seek & destroy viruses, spybots, etc…, & recover/repair data.

I have never had this problem with Windows XP Professional, but this laptop is designed for Vista, and I didn't know that before I bought it. I'm still looking for a permanent FIX. There must be a way to fix this problem permanently!
