Question about PC Desktops
I have a HP Pavilion (don't know the type at this moment) that I bought 3 years ago. I tried to boot my computer a week ago. At first I can hear the fan, then the fan will decrease its sound so you can barely hear it, but it's still running. The monitor will say that my computer didn't start properly and give me the option to start in regular mode or safe mode etc.... (I have picked them all). Then the fan will kick on and sound normal again, then my monitor goes to sleep, then I will get the Windows XP screen and then it starts all over again in circles. It doesn't really boot 100%.
I have unplugged and plugged and unplugged...... and nothing seems to work. Could it be my hard drive is shot? It's looking for Windows and can't find the software to fully boot?
If your monitor goes to sleep, how do you know it got to window xp screen ?
Sound like your stuck in a loop (bad boot sector). You might have to reinstall windows again.
