My hp pavilion dv7-4285dx has lost everything, os and all. How can I get it to read the recovery disc I ordered from HP?


What makes you think you've lost everything? Unless you specifically instructed your computer to Format the hard drive, I would doubt very seriously that you have lost everything. Everything might still be there, but a virus has hidden it to make you think you've lost everything. Oh, one more way to lose everything is to interrupt a System Recovery before it completes, or interrupt an Fresh Install of Windows before it completes.

A lot of times the System will think you've lost everything because somehow a setting the bios was changed either by you or some virus and it has set the hard drive where it is not detectable. Turn your computer off then watch the screen to see which key you have to hit to get into the BIOS or SETUP or System Setup.

Once you are in the BIOS scroll through it looking for AHCI that will be associated with disk drives or disk controllers. If it is Enabled, Disable it and Boot your machine. If it is Disabled, Enable it and Boot your machine. In other words just change the settings for AHCI.

Do that and report back.

I have an HP Pavilion a6647c desktop computer, running Windows Vista. Only 1.5 years old (bought 3/2009). when we try to turn computer on, IF we get to Windows logon window, it will freeze right...


Hi There,

Your problem has likely only 3 sources.

1. Corrupt Boot Files in Vista
2. Virus
3. Hard Drive locking up.

PLease boot into Safe Mode, download Malwarebytes Free Edition malware remover, stay in Safe Mode and run it there.

If no viruses are found for you to remove, you nedd a Vista Program Disc. Boot from the Disc and use Repair.

If no luck there, return to Safe Mode and use Sytem Restoego back to the earielst point in time in the past when you remember you puter running correctly.

Failing in all these, you likely need a new hard drive and start fresh.

Remember,

DON"T SHOOT THE MESSENGER!

Regards,

Selk

My daughter has an hp laptop and she updated quick time and when she rebooted the screen is black. nothing is working cant even get to safe mode


Probably what happened is a virus got in during the download.
The easiest way to fix it is to boot from a virus free system disk and clean your hard drive from a programme like Norton Anti Virus. I don't think Microsoft Essentials will do it, please correct me if I'm wrong.

My compaq evo nc620c laptop wont boot up, only goes to the "compaq" log screen from where I can go into F10 rom based setup or F12 network boot only.


Without having seen it, it sounds like a hard drive problem. Could be dead, could be the boot info has been destroyed (virus?).

ROM setup should be able to tell you more about the hard drive, and whether Setup can see it.

My HP Laptop suddenly started showing vertical stripes around once a week and could use it anymore until I turned it off. on rebooting, I would hear a couple of loud beeps but the PC will not boot....


There are a couple thing youcould have been looking at. number one a virus(trojan) got into you machine.

Number two you mother board is starting to go.

Number three your video card located on the mother board is gouing bad.

Number four you hard drive is getting weak

The fan on a laptop always runs to keep the machine cool. Smaller spaces get hotter faster.

I think based on your decription it was a virus, make sure you protected. Back up all ou info just incase it is the hard frive is startig to fail.

Hi there, it sound like a computer virus or trogan virus; it is a malicious program. You need to use an Anti-Virus or Anti-trogan program to get rid of it.

It could also be software problem like a corrupted file in your Operating System.

You should first format your hard drive and try it first and see what happens.
By formatting your hard drive, and re installing your Operating System, should correct the problem.

If not use the Anti-virus or Anti trogan program.

Laptop boots slow


Hi,

A couple of reasons why any PC will boot slowly:
1. slow processor, low memory, slow hard drive;
2. too many programs starting up. Pls try goto Start, Run, in next small window, type "msconfig" less the quotes, OK. In next window, click on the "Startup" tab, un-check everything (except perhaps your anti-virus or anything else you think is important). Click on buttons, Apply and then OK. If for some reason you would like to return some programs back, you can always go back and check them.
3. it would also be of great help to check for any possible virus or malwares (download , install and run Ad-Aware).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
