Need to run HP PC System Recovery on Pavillion a775c. Files corrupted - fixing this older computer for a friend. No virus protection. Only one user account (the administrator). Cannot start any program...


One way but its drastic, you could replace the Hard Drive. It makes me think that it might be the hard drive because windows cannot boot from the drive. Its pretty easy to replace a hard drive, then run the system recovery disc.

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 computer is slow. I have a Compac Presario PC. I think I have some viruses. What can I do?


You can do all or one of the following: 1. De fragment the hard drive. 2. Upgrade the RAM. 3. Do a factory restore - this will totally remove the virus, but you need to backup all your important files before performing. 4. The least recommendation - remove or uninstall unnecessary programs.

My pc checking hardware every time i open it (hp compac 530sff)


Enter your System Setup/System Options/BIOS Setup (How ever termed, it should flash on the screen quickly when showing the HP Logo)

Search for "Perform Quick Boot" and using the instructions on the bottom of the screen make sure this is set to "Quick Boot" (sometimes label fast boot etc.)

This sounds like the most possible cause of your issue. The machine is somehow set to do a Full/Diagnostic Boot.

This can happen if the backup battery has died and your machine has been unplugged for awhile. It is also possible for the machine to lose these settings on random occurrences, but very uncommon.

If the following has helped, consider purchasing a new BIOS battery.

I believe these machines use standard flat-cell batterys, this will be apparent simply by opening the case and looking for something resembling a quarter.

Let us know
Good luck

Compac recovery console


If you had a recovery disk given to you when you bought the pc, then used this to enter the recovery console. I pressume that you want to do a repair, in that you want to restore it to factory conditions?

Simply go into the bios and change the primary boot device to CDROM instead of hard disk. To enter bios, press "DEL" a few times when you first turn the pc on. The default is DEL but i have seen some systems with F2, (it will say what button you need to press to enter setup, look closely on the screen).

If you did not get a recovery disk, then there will be a recovery partition on your hard drive that you can normally access using an "F" button on the keyboard, usually F10,F12, etc (it should flash up briefly when you turn the pc on).

I hope this is of some help to you. Feel free to IM me if you need to ask more questions.

Restarting while formatting


Hi, try to check your pc's cmos setup on boot sequence, you would be needing to set the sequence to boot the system on CD drive first then your hardrive; then disable boot virus protection - this will make your OS installation with no interruption. Then save your cmos changes. you have to put your operating system program installer on your cd drive then watch the message to boot from your cd drive. hope this helps.

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.
