My HP usually turns on with the desktop window displayed.
The last time I turned on the computer, it opened in the "welcome" window with the "logon" owner icon. I click on the logon icon and the msg " loading personal settings" appears for a minute, then the msg "logging offf" appears and the "turnoff" button is displayed. If I restart, logoff, or power down and try again, the sequence repeats itself. I can start in safe mode but get the same actions.I am using WindowsXP home edition with service pact 2.

If your display not coming or beeping, then RAM issue. So you change ram solved you problem. But you are ask display come and that beeping come. I suggest you format windows and proper installed it. Because Installation time if installed without error ok, other wise HDD or RAM issue found. Then you change device and installed it windows and used it PC.
First of all, boot your system without the monitor connected to it and when you feel that it's booted upto logon screen (or if you haven't assign password it'll directly logon to the desktop, power on the speaker to make sure you can know it's done) connect the monitor. If this isn't successful, please turn off the system and remove the cmos battery, leave it outside for few minutes and again reinstall it. Boot again normally. Still having the same problem? then let's try another method.
Did you see the bios loading (black screen with white text during startup) when you power on the system? If so, press F8 several times while it is booting and select "Safe Mode" and restore your system to previous state. Do let me know if this isn't possible.
Thanks for using FixYa.
i had this same problem just 4 months ago. its caused by a virus and i think it was b'cuz of autorun.ini and so go to www.kaspersky.com, and download it and update it, and it'll find your virus. but also, u gotta re install windows and dont plug any hard drives in your computer until u've fixed the viruses on your computer. if u want to save your stuff, then right when u've booted your computer, hit F8 a bunch of times to go to safe mode and hopefully u'll be able to get on then back up your stuff to your hard drive. do you have your operating system disk? u mite need that or HP computers usually have a built in hard disk where it can reset windows for u. but do that and u may just be able to use windows once and when u shut down, thats usually your last time that u'll see it so dont shut down. try CTRL+SHIFT+ESC and that'll bring u to task manager but the virus u have probably has disabled that but try it anyways, and when or if it pops up, hit file>new, and type explorer.exe and your desktop will pop up.
is ur password displayed during startup (POST) or in windows ? if it is display during POST, remove the CMOS battery for while and back on. And if it is in windows, start the computer in safe mode (by pressing F8 key during startup) and change the logon password. hope it works.
VIA KM400A is the name of the motherboard chipset inside your computer.
I'm fully familure with that board.
1. on boot up hit delete or F2 key to enter the bios setup screen
2. once inside the bios setup screen , look for power management settings.
you'll know what to do at that point
You'll want to
1. turn power nanagement totaly off , which is not a good idea because windows considers
it a device in the system and loads a driver for it , so turning it totaly off MIGHT give windows
a heart attack.
Display Power Management Controled by Power Management = NA or NO
