Question about Computers & Internet
Well, I just want to comment something about it. I got the same problem and I am following the treads over the Internet and found a lot of complains to HP and few ideas; and for those whose guarantee is finished by this date, like mine, we got trouble and no real solution.
I reset hardware, and it didn't work at all. So, it seems it's just a little push for the HP Bios to work properly because the problem resists. I replaced the memory module and the same symptom. I didn't flash the Bios and didn't use the Recovery Software as those steps were mentioned not to work for this issue.
When the mini boot, I tested the Hard Drive with the utility from HP BIOS and it passed, also the Ram did. I tested them with third party software and passed, both mounted in this mini. Everything pointed out that replacing the Hard Drive would work. I installed a new 250 Gb Toshiba HD and at first boot a "clack" noise came from the HD maybe in the middle of the POST and it passed and the message that "select other boot device, bla bla.." appear. Good, but at the second try, the same problem came out: HP mini hangs on the HP logo screen. Please, any ideas will help this community. Do this new drive is bad too?
I feel some overheating, (I don't know what Atom temperature should be), by the dissipator and guess it would freezes the POST routine, or simply the BIOS is malfunctioning. I noticed that when the mini was turned off for a long time, it boots without problems even with the original hard disk and it loaded and worked fine in windows 7. Besides, I could start a Disk Clone process in order to get the same original installed software from HP. But this failed, too. Norton Ghost report "an internal inconsistency error". I guessed this was because of the bad sectors the original HD would have. After this step. I got acces to both disks using Partition Magic and other tools, even though, I partitioned the new HD. I just found a partiton table error in original disk and was fixed by Partition Magic. Everithing, as I said, looked great to remove the original HD an install the new one. But you already know.
Again, any help will be appreciated. Thanks for reading.
