My HP TX1005au Boots errantly

My HP TX1005au started to have boot up problems recently. In the begining, it won't boot once in a while. now it does not boot until i keep on pressing f10 & f9 buttons during the start up. Once it boots up everything is fine but its refusal to boot is annoying. I changed batteries, re-seated the hard hardisk, tried replacing the bios battery. flashed the bios, re-seated the RAM too.

I regretted buying this laptop the very next day due to its terrible display. Now, i regret it ever more. and the this happened like one month after the warranty ran out.

Please help. should i get a new hard disk?

I just purchased a Hp notebook dv2214us from an auction but everything was wiped clean off the hard drive due to California Law. I completed a self test off the Bios and everything passed. I just recently...

did you go into the bios and change the boot order to boot to the cd rom first? Then it should boot to the disc. Otherwise you may want to use any xp/vista disc do the install dont insert a cd key then once windows boots up then put the disc in and try a recovery.

I have a program which has jammed up my computer. Once windows boots up, the cursor freezes. When I boot up in safe mode, I can use the cursor, but can not uninstall a program in safe mode--help!

If you are using Microsoft OS then after booting :-
Start > Run > MSCONFIG
Untich the program which is causing the program. Apply and OK.
Restart your machine once.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction

Laptop boots up fine but will get a black screen after about 5 minutes of use and won't reboot normal after that for awhile

I fixed a similar problem by doing the following. With your computer on and plugged in, remove the battery. Then press the power button to do a cold boot. Once it's off unplug it and wait about a miniute then plug it back in and restart it w/o the battery in it. Once it is re-booted reinstall the battery. Hope this helps.

My HP ProBook 4510s will only get to the Windows Logo screen and will never start up. It keeps going and going. Please help!

When the system boots, press "F8" and get the OS boot options. Select 'Safe Mode' and boot your system.
Search for any errors once it is booted up in safe mode and reboot your PC.
Please come back and vote for me if this turns to be helpful for you. Thnx

Windows xp will not boot on my hp mini 110.Keeps flashing to start up screen

Try selecting Last Known Good Configuration, or Safe Mode, and use System Restore option to go back to a date where the system booted correctly.

If neither of these options work, then you need to try to get into Recovery Console:
  1. Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive and restart your computer. If you are prompted, select any options required to start (boot) from the CD.
  2. If you are prompted to Boot from CD, you need to change your Boot menu Order in BIOS or Setup to boot from CD before it boots from Hard Disk.
  3. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair or recover option by pressing R.
  4. Type 1 to select C:\Windows
  5. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. (usually blank, so just hit the Enter button on your keyboard.
  6. Type chkdsk /r (space between k and /) and press Enter.
  7. The process may seem to take a while and freeze at times, but it's working. Just allow it to finish on it's own. Once done, you can type exit, and press Enter. Remove the CD before the system starts up again.

Unmountable boot volume hp pavilion ze4400

Recommend entering Windows XP CD, and entering R once the CD Boots up, and enters installation mode.

This will bring you into the Admin panel, enter password, and than enter chkdsk c: -f Once this is completed eject CD, and than restart XP.

My pc doesn't startup up

I had this problem too but I then downloaded the most recent BIOS driver from the HP web site and that seems to be working. At least it now starts and boots correctly but I still have the problem that it tends to hangs up after a short while.

Factory settings

If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.

If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)

Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!
