HP TouchSmart PC - colored stripes only

When PC is started, the touchscreen displays colored lines that continue to move. The PC doesnt boot up. The screen does react to touch (the colors change and move). System sounds are heard. This isnt the first time its happened. Before I would just keep fitting cntrl alt delete, esc, and other keys and the recover screen adventually appears and the computer works fine. I ran diagnostics and nothing is found. This happens when the computer is shut down but not if its been sleeping. Please help. Thank you in advance.

    we sent ours to HP while it was under warranty, they shipped it back to us saying there was nothing wrong. I tried leaving it unplugged for a while (6 days), nothing worked. HP said they flashed the HD and that was it, we got it back working. the problem was still there. about a month later it happened again.

I have HP LaserJet Enterprise 700 color MFP M775dn ptinter and i forgot the username and password to access the setting through the web, any way to reset it please ?

You will need to perform a partial clean. Turn off the printer. Turn it on and watch to boot up on screen closely. When the black line appears under the HP logo, touch the HP logo. Display will go to a black and blue display. Use the arrows on screen to scroll down to administration, select partial clean and press ok, and then press back arrow until continue appears on screen. Press ok and unit will restart. You will lose most of your settings this way but you have no other choice.

Hp 20-f230 bios battery replacement

Remove the case and it is usually a CR2032 button battery. You will see it on the motherboard with a small clip. Having said that, your is not a straight forward desktop, but a Apple type clone. There is a picture of the motherboard here and I don't see anything that looks like a CMOS battery. You can contact HP Support direct.

Moving emails to folders on touchscreen hp

Actually, the emails are not moved. The label associated changes. So, if you create a folder, the name of the folder becomes the label you have to assign to the message.

HI I have a h/p touchscreen pc it froze today and it was un plugged now we try to start it up and it is trying but there is nothing on the monitor and the computer is just racing and nothing at all...

start the computer and then immediately start tapping F10, if getting a display, the issue is related to software in the touchscreen. press F5 > enter, F10 > enter and check for functionality. If not getting any display the graphics card may require replacement else the motherboard.
