Hi my hp omnibook Xe 3 is showing this after I reboot and I can't get access to anything what can I do ?thanks

What version of Windows is that?

Shut down the computer, turn back on, at the BIO screen press F8 to enter the safe mode and recovery screen. From there you can access a restore point. Chose a restore point closes to the last know time the computer was functioning properly.

Let me know if that helps.

My acer 5536 will not let me access my control pannel can you help?

When did this start? Maybe you have a virus or infection that is causing.

Have you tried booting in safe mode and see if you can access the contol panel?

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If you can access the Control Panel in safe mode you definitely have a virus or infection. Reboot the computer again as if you are going into safe mode, but this time select the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity). When it boots up open your internet browser and download and install MalwareBytes then run a Quick Scan.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

See if you can roll your system back to before you started having this problem.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having this problem. System Restore does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore date you selected).

If you have Windows 7 just click Start and type in System Restore in the search box above the start and look up to see the results and click System Restore.

I got a laptop of a friend and i want to rebbot it because they never gave me the user name password or a disk..How can i reboot it to the factory setting?

HP laptop don't come with recovery CD's they have a hidden recovery partition on them.
To access the partition turn on the computer. When the initial blue HP screen appears Press the "F10" key. A Recovery menu will appear. Click on "NEXT" and then click on "YES" Your system will now go through the product recovery.

Good luck
