Recovering during startup Use the following steps to perform a recovery from the hard drive :

  1. Backup files from the My Documents folder and from other folders you may have created.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Just after the first screen appears (the logo screen), press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears.
  5. Select one of the following procedures, depending on which recovery type you want to perform:
    • To perform a standard system recovery, click Next , and then click Yes .
    • To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced , (select Destructive Recovery ) and then click Next . CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer .
  6. Read and respond to each window and screen that appears.
  7. After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup. NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over several hours, depending on the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (for example, My Documents and the Desktop).
  8. Before using your computer, update and protect your computer. For more information, refer to Things To Do After Performing a System Recovery in Windows XP .
  9. Reinstall applications that you added after purchasing the PC, and any files you need from backup.

My 48 inch television keeps turning off by itself is there a reset? I have to keep unplugging it.

There is no such external reset button to this TV. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.
As far the set do not switch On; you can't enter its service mode. If the set switches ON for a while; say 2 seconds or so, and then switches Off by itself, the main board is faulty.

I have a monitor that keeps flashing colours and can't turn off. Many threads tell me to reset it to factory settings, but how do you do that if you can't even get the menu to come up?

Try holding the menu button in for 10-15 seconds. Try pushing both power and menu buttons together.

It may be toast.

Take care!

My HP2159m monitor has changed its display, now showing a negative print on all pictures and its color background is now black with white printing. Some headlines, such as Google News, are all in yellow....

jskalko, Have you proved that your pc is not the problem by connecting a "known-good" monitor to it?? Will your 2159m unit work same way when connected to a "known-good" pc??? Do some "test" swapping first! Have you verified connector gold pins are not damaged on monitor cable?? 12fixlouie

Usually if the auto adjust is flickering intermittently you can attempt to reset the internal values to the factory settings. To do so: press the menu key on your monitor then choose factory reset. Press the menu button again then select all settings.
