Hi.
This is a problem with HP/Compaq wherew the motherboard "freezes".

Here's a way that might just "thaw" it out.

First, disconnect EVERYTHING from the computer EXCEPT for the keyboard and mouse and screen.

Unplug the computer.

Next, while unplugged, press and hold the power button for at LEAST 45 seconds.
This allows the bios to reset to an available state.

Then release the power button and then plug the computer in.

Boot up.

The computer should now boot normally.

This is known as a "soft reset".

Hopefully this works for you, as it has worked well for many others.

I hope I helped you out, and good luck !

Fix blue invent screen


Hi
Whilst the computer is starting, press the "F8" to et a menu up and then using the "up" / "down" keys navigate to "Use latest settings that worked" (or words to that effect) and press "Enter".
This should make the computer revert to the settings from an earlier time which worked. You shouldn't lose any data files using this, ut if a software update or driver change caused this then you may lose the update.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

All I get is the hp invent black screen. computer


Try flipping it over, unscrewing the back panels and pop them off. Take out 1 stick of memory if there is 2, or take all memory out. Then try to turn it on. It will either do nothing but turn on and beep, or it will turn on but show nothing on the screen. Then shut it off and put the memory back in. Sometimes this kind of reset gets past that bios screen. Otherwise your memory may be bad. The other culprit can be the battery. Try removing the battery and starting it with it plugged into the wall. Let me know if this fixes your issue.

your case is common in most hp desktop i believe the bios of your hp has certain problems so what i'll recommend to you is to update the bios of your mainboard you can search it on th einternet or if you can't surf properly repair the operating system by flashing in your bootable disk then restart and boot up the disk and proceed to the setup then repair the os

hope it helped you!:]
