Question about HP Pavilion 8860 (P2941A) PC Desktop

2 Answers

RESTARTING COMPUTER(AMIGOS) My computer keeps restarting on its own, before restarting it gives me error reports, so I tried using the non destructive system recovery in my computer to fix the problem, it didn?t work, in the middle if the recovery my computer restarted itself. After that I tried using the full system recovery using back up CDs, in the middle of the recovery it stopped, and then my monitor turned blue with a message telling me that? A PROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL IF THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU?VE SEEN THIS STOP ERROR SCREEN, RESTART YOUR COMPUTER. IF SCREEN APPEARS AGAIN FOLLW THIS STEPS. STEPS NO.1 BLAH BLAH STEPS NO.2 BLAH BLAH STOP:0X00000000A(0X00000047,0X00000002,0X00000000,0X80427934) That is the exact message except for the blah blah part. After that message my computer did not respond to anything, so I turned it off, then I tried the full system recovery again and the same thing happened. I tried turning it on without entering the system recovery page, but it goes straight to it, I cant enter my desktop(maybe because I was not able to finish the full system recovery, obviously) I did not install any new hardware or software in my pc, I had some problems with my memory before and I have a bit of a virus problem, I hope that narrows down the possible solutions, I don?t want to rush into buying a new memory because I honestly don?t know what the problem is. I would appreciate any advice you can give me. THANK YOU

I have seen this problem solved by reseating all the memory, video, and add in cards. and all the drive cables. Just unplug everything and plug them back in.

Hi powee;
have you recently installed some device driver?

This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. At the resulting Windows 2000 Advanced Options menu, choose the Last Known Good Configuration option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time.

here is the link;

hope it resolves your problem

My PC keeps restarting when playing this game


Computer randomly restarts is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the system and sometime it sends different errors, upon restarting nothing happens.


-- First of all disable the auto-restart option from your control panel settings
-- Remove any recently installed maliciously software/add-on or any other application or toolbar.
-- Try to cool down your PC as the overheating due to overuse of computer may result in system freezing and sudden restarting.
-- Update your BIOS.
-- Update the drivers
-- Make it sure the error is not caused by the deficient power supply. You may try to change the power supply.
-- Conduct the registry clean up scan for quick fix of the problem.

-- Remove flashy games and/or untrusted antiviruses/antispywares. Conduct the security scan through the most powerful scanners only.



If you have already been experiencing the computer automatic restart and shutdown problem then use PC optimization tool like Reginout to fix such kind of issues instantly.

Netbook turns on blue screen appears but doesn't give enough time to read what it says and then restarts continuously


Hi there!
You can follow this simple steps so that you can determine the exact blue screen error that you are getting.
Start the computer and keep pressing the F8 key. It will lead you to Windows Advanced Option Menu (see picture):

highlight Disable automatic restart on system failure and press the enter key. It will restart the computer and will stop on the blue screen error instead of restarting your computer.
Hope this helps.

I have an e machine model t3265 it keeps just restarting i pressed the f11 button when i turn it on does nothing but keep restarting trying to get back to factory default help me please thank you also i...


Sorry to hear you're computer is acting up.

Turn the computer off.
When you turn the computer on tap the F8 key(at the top of the keyboard) once every second.
If you get the Advanced options screen choose Last known good configuration by using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

If the computer continues to reboot then do the F8 thing again but this time choose Do not reboot on system error(don't remember exact wording). If you're getting a blue screen, what is the STOP error code shown on the screen?

Firefox reports that it has a problem and crashed.


If you will take to my advice.

You might have to uninstall firefox and delete all files and folders that works with it.

Restart your system and redownload the firefox explorer. Get its latest update.

Cheers.

Toshiba satellite laptop keeps restarting


Is the fan working? It might be overheating.
Or one of the drivers is corrupt, and crashing the computer. The only way to solve that is by remotely (by means of starting from CD with a mobile OS).

My computer is restarting


Did you mean STOP ERROR: ( 0x0000007b ) ?

1. I need to know the model number of the computer.
2. I need to know the operating system you're attempting to install on said computer.


xxxx doesn't tell me anything , looks like a memory error but you'll need to give me the exact error number or error code.

How can i restart my entire computer all over


If you made the recovery disc's when you first purchased the pc, use them.

If it has a recovery partition on the hard drive all you need to do is hit what ever key it says on the screen when booting up (turning on) sometimes its F11,to start the recovery back to its initial purchased state,

then follow any directions it gives,it may ask if you want a destructive recovery,or not ,distructive means the hard drive will be formatted and ever thing that's on it will be wiped of,
non destructive will only re install the operating system and drivers, and should keep all your programs.

good luck
