I have an HP Pavilion a4000. It just stopped working a couple days ago. Display just rolled up and quit. I've been through everything I know how to deal with. When you push the power button it


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

How can get inside again in the boot setup of a dell optiplex 170L?


Good Day,
That is quite an easy thing to do.
Immediately you turn on your PC, after displaying the brand (for some PC), the computer dispalys 'press F__ to enter boot setup'. If you can't get to read it, either press F2, F12, F10 or F1 continously after you turn on your system. Then you can make your corrections.
I hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya.

Dell inspiron 530 cd /dvd quit working


Windows Vista (if that's the operating system you're running) has a bad habit of not recognizing CD/DVD drives. The first thing to do is to confirm that your drive is still good. If you've got a bootable CD or DVD (i.e. Windows OS install disk) put it in your drive and reboot the computer and see if you see the text "Press and key to boot to cd...." appear. If you see this, then the drive is ok and it's some corrupt registry settings that need to be fixed. If you don't see that text appear and you're sure you have your boot order set properly so that the computer will try to boot the the CD/DVD drive before trying the hard drive, then it could be that the drive has actually stopped working.
Anyway, if you got the option to boot to the CD/DVD drive with the bootable disk in it, you'll need to follow these directions to get it working again. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;929461

Hi,
If the computer keeps rebooting when you first start it up it is quite possible that the hard drive is broken. It keeps looking for the start up boot sector, but it's broken so it keeps trying again..and again...and well you know.

Hello, my problem is when i turn my PC on there comes an error named : b0 error. I searched solution and for some people it works but not for me. Can you help me pleasee???


Hi Yimiden,


A solution to the problem is to insert the OS X install cd without pressing any key. When the install times out, OS X should boot from the harddisk. To make a partition active, do this:
  • Start Terminal.app
  • Enter:
sudo -s (enter your password)
fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (the disk number may be different on your installation, eg. rdisk1)
print (list all partitions)
flag 1 (sets partition 1 as bootable - might be a different number on your installation)
quit (answer y to save settings)
  • Now reboot the computer. You should now be able to boot without the install cd. .

When this solution does not work, try this:
Start the computer with the CD.
Wait until you can start the Terminal from the menu
Type this:
fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0 (or any other number if it is not the first disk)
Quit the Terminal
Quit the Installer
A dialog box apears
Click "Choose Startup Disk"
Choose your first disk
Click Reboot . . . . . .



Please give me a feed back if this is useful

Reboot


If you have a virus, especially more than one, you will have to do a fresh install. Yes, wipe everything off your computer, format the hard drive and start again.

Please remember to take some time and get everything off the computer that you need to keep. Everytime I do a fresh install I forget to store my emails and email addresses, some of which are quite important.

Place your windows cd in the cd drive and boot the cd, follow the prompts to do a complete fresh install.

Have you ever done a fresh install? If not, you may need someone with a little knowledge to take you through the process.
