the RTC coin cell battery inside can be bad. get a new one.
the what OS is here windows what?

screen is black, never shows, text even.?
blue screens w10 has over 100 blue screen errors ,not one shown by you, (photos of it)
fan inside dead silent.? that?
read page 2 yet? and page 4.

one blue screen is the windows recover screen
if F11 key does not recover the PC to day one,
then the HDD is bad, or much worse. (ask how to do like 10 tests to discover why non HDD failures. look like HDD failures are are not) its no toaster, its computer in fact.

in the same book page 10 shows the HP recovery process
steps, for this exact PC, and only works if the HDD is still ok.

Prestige 10 tablet wont read NTSC

It may just not be mounting the storage. Connect the HDD to the tablet. Go into settings > storage and look for a mount option for usb storage. Click that. Then if you have a file explorer program such as ESExplorer you can browse the usb storage.

I just bought an IBM Thinkpad r31 for my kids, that may have a connection problem, or it may be with the HDD or controller. It comes on intermittently, and when it boots, may only stay on for a few minutes...

It's the HDD, its spin-up time (the time it takes the motor on the platters to reach normal operating rpms)  is too great so the system can't decide if it's a hard or soft problem so it freezes.
Nothing more you can do, replace it.

Hello Guys 1010us pavilion dv5 model when I play games it shuts down. So yesterday while watching Youtube it shutted down again. And blue screen is appearing and it shows that there is a problem with HDD...

the power shuts down or did the PC BSOD?
Blue screens of Deathh(sic)
BSODs are crashes, turning off is the PC turning its own power off.
blue screens of *****.
no OS stated, my guess XP? that loves to crash OS.
the chkdsk way is ok, it finds simple problems, only !!!
it does not really test the hdd robustly, nor do a smart analysis.
the tests on hdd are best done with linux boot cd/dvd or usb thrumb drive, (after chkdsk)

chkdsk from a OS running can hard to do if it BSODs all the time.!

we can also use F11 recover mode and do cmd, prompt there
and try that, chkdsk.
or from install disks, of you unstated OS. run Chkdsk
but best is this. be sure to check SMART 05 and C6 numbers'

did you know as you type on this forum the severs here
actually check that S.M.A.R.T data page like 1 time every 10 min?
and when it sees that fail' it turns on a red light and tells the tech
to hot swap in a new drive.? (or emails him?)
the same technology works here, even W10 does this better.
it will tell you (in lame why) the HDD is going SOUTH.

if the PC can run for say 10 minutes and nOT BSOD crash
then run Crystal disk , (free)
as seen in the link above.

your PC has and F11 key, called recovery and has and advanced page. below is w10 , what OS do you run: we cant guess OS

It's the hard drive at fault. Take it out pop it in a pc, initialize and reformat put it back in.
If you want to try and save the recordings try pvr101disk.exe to mount it before the above.
