Hi,

"Code Purple" on an Windows XP system: This Worked for me!:

Okay, I have read and read and read, on this site, and on others, trying to fix the "Code Purple" problem. Many of the answers ALMOST worked for me; but I, like many others, couldn't get to the H: drive to del the key file. At the C:\ prompt, I couldn't CD to H:\. So what I did was to give the DEL command from the C:\ prompt. See below for the 2 detailed procedures. The first is for those who have the Recovery Disk Set, the other is for those without the set. Good Luck!

Procedures for recovery from "Code Purple" on a Windows XP system:

Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITH a Recovery Disk Set:

1. Load the first system recovery disk into the CD-ROM drive
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q
8. Press Q to quit the Recovery Window (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

*I have found that there is no need to Select "Advanced Options" prior to pressing Alt + D.


Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITHOUT a Recovery Disk Set:

If the Recovery Partition on your hard drive is intact, this should work:

1. Turn on PC and repeatedly press F10 (pause for a second between key presses) until the Recovery Screen comes up
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

If that would not work, you need to contact HP.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I got a code purple trying to restore my computer to its factory settings and now when my computer tries to boot up normally I can't log in using my old password or username and the only way I hav


With the code purple error on the screen, press the shift+f10 to open the cmd prompt.
Whe the cmd prompt opens, type the following command without the quotes "notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd", then after the REM lines add the following code without the quotes "goto cleanup". Save the file and exit notepad and restart your computer by typing the following command without the quotes, "shutdown -r -t 0".
This will cause the checkdmi function in an HP computer to bypass the tattoo check.
Hope this helps

Code purple error after system recovery on windows xp how can i fix im a green hand but follow clear instructions very good


There is no way to fix a Code Purple error on an HP computer.

Basically what has happened is that there is a Hard Coded Information "Tattoo" on the motherboard that tells the computer what hardware should be on this machine.  The Hard Code and the hardware do not match.  It is kind of a known fault by HP.

But there is some good news.  No matter long your computer has been out of warranty, this problem IS covered.  The wrong hardware was put into your machine and no matter when this error occurs, HP will support it.

Call HP's tech support and when you speak to a Technical Agent, you let them know you got the Code Purple Error, and they should immediately escalate your call to their Hardware Specialists and set up a service repair where they send you a box and paid shipping label to ship your computer to one of their repair facilities where they will fix it and send it back to you at no cost.  Call 1-800-HP-INVENT.

I used to work for HP tech support and we would see a Code Purple case about once every few months, even on computers 3+ years old.

Configuration error code purple


1. Load the system recovery disk into CD-ROM
2. Press F10 repeatedly at boot screen to load the Recovery Menu
3. Press R for the recover console
4. Select "Advanced Options"
5. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt
6. type "cd h:\" to enter the root directory
7. type "dir /w" to view the directory in wide view
8. open the master.log file (or something along those lines), this should bring up a prompt asking you what program to open it with, you should only be able to select notepad.
9. open the file with notepad and when it appears select the File>Open
10. in the file name box type in "C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
11. once the file opens clear the contents and select save as then save the file as run.p_
12. close the notepad program
13. delete the original file by typing "del C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
14. reboot system

After a reboot the windows screen might flash a few times and take a little longer to load, be patient and you should be able to continue with the windows set-up without that damned code purple error message.
