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

HOw do i reset my computer to where its practiclly new?


Restoring an HP computer to factory settings requires that you do a system recovery.
There are two types of recovery for HP computers: destructive and non-destructive.

Destructive recovery will reformat your hard drive, destroying all data and reinstalling the operating system and additional software according to the factory configuration.

Non-destructive, or "system," recovery will repair your Windows installation, replacing any damaged or missing system files and restoring the registry to the factory setting.

Non-destructive recovery is the best option if you are unable to back up your user data before running system recovery.Restoring with CDs


Back up all crucial user files if you are able to do so.
If your computer will not burn CDs, use flash drives of 4GB or higher to store your data.

Alternatively, you can use your network to transfer files.
You can then back up your data to CDs at your leisure.

Detach peripheral devices such as removable media drives, USB drives and your printer before recovering.

Also remove any additional hard drives by disconnecting the cable from the back of the computer.
Leave your monitor, mouse and keyboard attached to the computer.

Shut down your computer.
Place the first recovery CD in the CD drive.

If your recovery files are written on a partition, you may be able to select system recovery from the splash screen and your computer starts.
Select the recovery option you would like to use.
To perform a destructive recovery, click the "Advanced" menu option.

Select "Destructive Recovery" and click "Next."
To perform a non-destructive, or system, recovery, click "Next" from the opening screen.
Watch the computer while it is recovering to the factory settings.
Watch for any errors, as the computer will wait indefinitely for a response from you, slowing down recovery time.

Also, you may need to insert additional recovery CDs as the recovery program requests them. Restoring With Recovery Manager

Click the Windows "Start" menu, type "Recovery" in the Search field and press "Enter."
Click "Advanced Options," choose "System Recovery" and select "Next."
If you are prompted to use Microsoft's recovery program, select "No."
Choose the option to back up your files, if you haven't done it already.
Once that is complete, choose "Next" to begin reformatting the drive and returning the system to factory settings. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-and/How-do-I-RESTORE-my-system-to-the-original-factory-settings/td-p/50113

Sir my pc has automatically restart and does not worked proprely they can give the fatal error plzz helpp me


Are you getting a Blue Screen error and can't read it because the computer keeps restarting?

If So, turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Scroll down past safe mode and you will see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. The next time you boot up you will be able to see the error message.

If it is a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) error message, you might need a system disc.

Restored my computer when it went to restart it it kept starting ond shutting off and never got to the windows symbol tryed to press f8 to df8o another restore nothing happens when i press


Either your OS has system errors or in the most obvious scenario, your memory modules have a number of problems. You could start by removing and cleaning your memory modules then placing them back one at a time (restarting) until you get to the one that is malfunctioning. Otherwise you might want to do a fresh re-installation of your OS using a non-defective media

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?

My PC won't start? every time i start it the fan just spins fast and loud and nothing happens, the screen doesn't show. this happened when i took the PC apart. it a Compaq presario sr1610nx


Initially test the monitor in another pc, if display available use the monitor in Compaq presario sr1610nx. Load to BIOS by restarting and tapping F1, if the display available, the computer is ok. restart and tap F8, if the advanced boot option screen comes up, the software is ok.
Restart the computer and tap F10 and proceed with a destructive recovery to reload the operating system on the computer

I have a problem with my del optplex gx260 is keep on restarting, why?


If the computer is restarting continously at the windows loading screen then you have a windows issue of which your computer is "Blue Screening" and restarting. In this case you arent really seeing the blue screen as windows restarts immediately as the error occurs. My advice to you is to press F8 before the windows loading screen and choose to "not restart automatically on error" that is not entirely what it says but its to that regard. If that doesnt work try pressing the "Pause Break button continously until the blue screen appears, read the error and google it to find out what is causing the error and go from there. Please feel free to get back to me on this if my information doesnt help or i need to explain further.

My computer keeps restarting


do you see an error message at some point?
describe in which part specifically your computer restart?
what were you doing last before the computer started acting up on you?

it may be a driver problem:
have you tried to restart in safe mode?.. after the post sequence press f8 and start the computer in safemode. there are other options you may want to try from the advance startup menu that comes up when pressing f8. if you are able to start the computer in safemode your problem most likely is with a driver.

did you install new hardware?
try uninstalling the new hardware and restart the computer to see if that solves the problem

you may have a problem with some configuration files or booting files...
try to restart your computer with a windows 98 boot disk. first download the disk from http://www.bootdisk.com/ and make a floppy disk as directed. then get into the cmos/bios of your computer and make sure your first booting device is your floppy drive, then put your newly made win 98 boot disk in the floppy drive and restart your computer. at the prompt type c: then enter then type win

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
