Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Periodically my HP PAVILION a465c WILL BEGIN TO "RACE" MUCH AS A CAR WOULD IF YOU STEPPED ON THE GAS PEDEL IN A CAR IN NUTRAL. WHEN THIS HAPPENS, WHAT EVER PROGRAM BEING USED FREEZES MOMENTARILY. WHEN THE RACING STOPS (15 SECONDS OR SO..) PROGRAM RESUMES.

Check your processor when this happens. If you see it is steadily at 53% usage and above check your processes (control alt delete). It could one of them is malfunctioning or in a loop. In my case it was a process called agent.exe. It was a macrovision update service named ISUSPM. I opened msconfig and disabled it. My PC is running like new. It was also causing my processor to overheat.

How do I change native resolution on HP Pavilion a1120n when the choices in the display window don't match the recommended setting for my monitor?


If you cannot change the screen resolution then most likely the wrong video driver was installed.
Check the make and model of the graphics card and install the driver.

Hp pavilion a465c desktop which will not boot


Make sure the power supply switch on the back is set to 115v, its normally a red switch but could be black.

Once you do that see if you can turn on the computer and get video.

If not then with the computer turned off, take out the memory sticks and reseat them one at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the computer to see if you get video. If you still don't get video then try taking out the CPU and reseating it back into its socket properly. At the same time make sure there is no dust or dirt on the cpu or in the socket.

Try again and see if you get video. If you don't get any video this time then disconnect everything and only have power going to the motherboard. If you do this and you still don't have video then the motheboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Yellow light blinking next to blue on/off light


The "tin can" symbol below the yellow light signifies a hard disk. The yellow light is a hard disk activity indicator, it is nothing to worry about. It is just tell you that the computer is accessing the hard drive.
