If you have the original restore disk, you could try and fix it. But if you have an actual copy, you can go to install it but when it propts you click repair. It should go into a dos mode, and then type fixboot, (this is for if the computer comes to the boot logo and then crashes and shows boot logo again, or if it comes to the blue screen of death) and hit enter. also if prompted, you could try last known good configuration.
These are some methods of fixing your computer without erasing all data!

Computer will not turn on. green light blinking


Try replacing the power supply, a blinking green light usually means the power supply is missing an output voltage. If you do that and you still get a blinking green light then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Do you know where I can find a recovery disc for an HP 873n Media Center PC? I called hp and they don't have one.


Hi,
You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.

I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.

If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run, simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup and Recovery Manager. With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.

For a full system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select "Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)

Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.

Good luck.

Major HP crash


i think you got the wrong disks man, nothing to do with the motherboard.

a clean installation

it is recommended to this service at least
once every 8 months, it wipes all your hard
drive from data, programs, bugs, errors and viruses
this will 100% solve your problem guaranteed.

for xp, insert the xp installation disk
restart the computer and a message will
come up asking to press any key to boot
from cd. once you do that "i mean you press a key"
then a blue screen will load then asks you
to press Enter to install xp.

1. press enter
2. select the partion and press enter
3. select continue "it warns you to delete files"
4. select format "quick"
5. now let it do the rest and follow instructions
6. when the installation is finished you'll notice
its like new again, some computers will need
drivers which you can get from manufacturer
website. download and install them.

that's it but for a detailed information click here
