Question about Computers & Internet
I have an HP Media Center desktop (m470n) running XP Media Center 2004 edition. It would hang at the XP screen at regular boot up but would boot up into safe mode. I created the restore CD's and did a full restore (reformatting the hard drive). It finishes the restore but it hangs at the XP screen again saying please wait. I can still move the mouse and I've let it run for 24 hours now but still no change. It doesn't go into setup mode. What can I do?
If yours is an original hp it should have a rescue or diagnostics partition that you should be able to access by pressing f10 in here you will find a diagnostics tool that will help isolate if you have a bad cd rom or memory. If all tests come out good then you need to get a hold of another cd; maybe your's is scratched.
