90B fan error


Start your notebook and start tapping the F2 key. In the diagnostic screen perform the hard disk diagnostic. If the diagnostic reports a hard disk smart test fail, then your hard disk is failing and must be replaced. That is the only way you will be able to return your notebook to useable condition.
If hard disk is ok I suggest you goto HP support Forums at

this occurs mostly due to static charges. perform the following:

2. Remove the battery from the notebook.

If you have the CD's that came with your notebook, there should be a recovery disk. Insert that disk and see if it solves the problem. If not, than I suggest you reinstall Windows and start from scratch.

Mac notebook


The most likely cause is a bad hard drive or a corrupted file. Start up the computer in safe mode. (Hold down the shift key while starting) that will force the macbook to run extended tests on the startup drive. If it finds any errors it may be able to correct them. If that fails use the startup disk that came with your laptop and start from it (hold down the C key during start up) that will allow you to use disc utility to try repairing your hard drive.
If the macbook fails to boot to the DVD or into safe mode. Try reseating the RAM chips. Hope some of that helps.

This sounds like the hard drive is failing. At this point you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.
