Question about HP KQ495AA Pavilion A6500F Desktop PC

1 Answer

I have an hp a6500f that just stopped working. it makes it to the blue screen where it has the option to choose f9, f10, f11, and escape. i don't have any recovery disks. at first it wouldn't do anything when i pressed one of the f keys. then i changed the ASAT cable(flat red cable) that comes from the hard drive and connects to the Motherboard from #1 to #3 (not really sure what that does) but it finally let some of the fkeys work, but not the f11 key. everything lights up and fans work. any asisstance ou can provide it would be appreciated

My computer keeps showing HP screen and f10,f11,f9 and wont let me do anything


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
hope this helps

Hp screen wont start up i just get the blue hp screen f10 = start up esc= boot menu f11=system recovery f9 = dignoses when i pree these buttonms nothing happens tried unplugging everything and still...


If pressing F11 ("system recovery") does nothing, then your disk-drive, which contains a "system recovery partition" is inaccessible,
i.e., your disk-drive has failed.

You'll need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, and use the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.

I have a HP Touchsmart IQ500 that is a little over a year old. It was working fine and I went out one day to come back and start it up to find it was only a blue screen with a few options.I found someone...


Hi,
This might be an issue with the Hard drive or the operating system installed on the hard drive.
Try to access BIOS screen tapping on F10 on restart.
If you are able to access Bios try to run the Short smart self test on the Hard drive.
To run the test follow the steps as follows:
on the main window you will see 1 st drive 2nd drive 3rd drive 4th drive.
besides these drive letters you will find your Hard drive listed.
Highlight that and press enter.
on the next screen highlight Smart support and press enter.
on the next screen select Short smart self test and run the test.
If it gives an error code that means the hard drive has gone bad.
2)If not then come back on the main page by clicking on ESC button till you come back to the main page.then Press F5 select yes to load set up defaults and press enter.Press F10 once to save configuration changes and press enter.
It will boot to windows.
3)Still if you face the same issue then you need to perform the recovery using the recovery cds.
4)If you don't have the recovery cds then you can contact HP support and order the cds and perform the recovery.
This should resolve your issue.
Thanks.

Freezing upon boot


restart and tap F8 key, if loads to repair your computer/Advanced boot option, select safe mode using the down arrow key and log in to your account, create a backup of all the data on a removable storage device.
Insert System disk and run a system recovery to the original fcty setting, if backup done, restore from the removable storage device.
