HP Media Center Desktop w/XP

Bought computer a year ago January from Best Buy and everything worked fine. Starting a few months ago, when I turn computer on it just "beeps" and won't connect to Windows. If I turn it off and turn it on again, it connects just fine. I took the computer to Geek Squad but they said despite many trys they never got it to beep so they said I'd have to send it to HP for diagnostic check.

Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?

honestly your best option is to erase Windows and reinstall it. if youre running Windows xp that tells me its an older pc. that means you have a lot of years of buildup. do you still have the sticker with your xp license somewhere on your computer? it looks like the sample im providing you. if you still have the sticker all you need is the cd that matches it. not too hard to find. let me know if you have the sticker and we'll go from their.

If it has an onboard video card then reload the video driver.

If it has a PCI-e / AGP video card then download latest drivers and re-install driver, Dont forget to un-install original driver first.

Power Supply for HP Media Center m1270 PC


Are you sure it's the power supply?

Most modern power supply units are of the ATX type. Brand should not matter. Your PC used a 300 watt power supply when new. You can purchase a power supply with more output (watts) if you like, but not less. You will have to purchase from a computer specialty store most likely - take the dead one in and compare it side by side with the new one before buying.

Screen is fading left to right. text starts black and turns to brown


Might be that your monitor is starting to go bad. Try another known good working monitor on the computer. If it works properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the 2nd monitor doesn't work properly then its a problem with your video card.

If your original monitor is the culprit then it could be bad caps on the main board but regardless you could possibly take it back to Best Buy and get it replaced since it should at least still be under the manufacturers warranty.

Windows XP Media Center stopped working


Seems like a virus or spyware on the computer:
Uninstall any existing security program like norton or mcafee by using their removal tools from http://pcsafety.us/
from the same site download and run AVG antivirus free, Super Antispyware - update and perform a complete scan on all the drives.

If these dont work you need to run combofix but that may crash your pc so keep it as a last resort.

You can take it to geek squad but they wond do all this they will simply format your harddrive and you lose all your data.

Hope this helped!

Hp pavilion m7330n motherboard issue


The system in question requires motherboard model ms-7184 and can be found on ebay for less than $100.  If your repair guy used a different motherboard you will get the issues described and need to reinstall the OS.  It is impracticle to put any more than $200 in most desktop computers more than 2 years old, your repair guy should have advised you of this straight off.  Find a new person to take your equipment.
