My hp tx 1200 will not boot. I started having problems with it freezing. Now it will go to the HP insignia and I try to go to safe mode, sometimes it will let me other times it won't. I just tried to open it, and hit f8, it said the windows file were loading, then went to the microsoft logo, but then froze. I don't know what to do. A friend of mine was able to get a boot disk, and said when he tried to test the memory, it would get to 77% and then shut down. I've had it just over 18 months and have always had problems with the vista.

    For clarification: my hp 1200 is a tablet PC. Noticed the problem after I tried to install a stowaway keyboard for my PDA. It did not download correctly to the PDA, so I just took it off the PDA, but my laptop crashed soon after. I don't know if I messed up some of the drivers or what? Thanks for any help.

Boot to a Windows Operating System CD ROM and do a clean installation (You'll be prompted to choose a partition before the format screen appears, make sure to choose "NTFS Normal" and not "NTFS Quick" when prompted to format). This will wipe the harddrive and get rid of any problems you may have, since you can't even boot to "Safe Mode", cause if you can I would suggest running a full virus scan with up to date definitions in Safe Mode to see if any viruses are causing your PC's problems and possibly fix them.
Good luck.

Hi,

Initially, I suspect a hardware fault. Perhaps you can try to open the casing, remove the memory and clean the little gold tips with the use of a pencil eraser. Should there be any add-on card, you might as well clean them likewise. In some instances, similar problems were resolved by doing a reset on the CMOS/BIOS by temporarily moving the appropriate jumper to the opposite pair and back. Alternately, the same effect could be achieved by simply removing the back-up/memory battery for a couple of minutes.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    I mistook the title of your as your unit being a desktop. In your particular unit, the memories are often at the bottom and are covered by a squarish panel/lid. Other than the add-on cards, the cleaning would still hold true.

    if the system is getting frozen then it may be due to a bad OS or a bad hard disk with bad sectors.

    i think the OS has crashed

    so have a XP boot disk and reinstall the operating system

    if the re installation of XP does not solve your problem then it can be due to some bad sector in your hard disk.

Hp compaq nx6110 hangin when booting and difficult to recognise the hard drive


Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 at startup until the boot menu appears. Then select "safe mode with networking". If it boots into safe mode then see if your missing some drivers in device manager. If you are then download and install them. Next run some anti-virus and anti-malware programs to make sure your system is clean.

My laptop freezes at hp screen with F10 to enter ROM Setup, so I hit F10, and after about 3 minutes a black screen appears with a blue screen saying drivelock multibay password in it. Sometimes it just...


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after just after you switch On until you get Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Hp pavilion freezes at startup


Will it start in SAFE mode? Reboot and press F8 before Windows loads. This will give a small menu about different SAFE modes and Normal mode. Select SAFE mode and allow system to start. If the system starts fine then you have corrupted drivers and/or a virus which is corrupting your drivers. Download AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe and run these. Now goto START, Run and type SFC/scannow and have your original disks handy because any corrupted drivers will have to be replaced. Now try to reboot into NORMAL mode. If OK you're done. If not OK or even in SAFE mode all you see is the cursor then the laptop needs to go to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com

Got a HP DV2000 boot then freezes


Hi,
It seems that the problem is with the display chipset ( assuming its with Nvidia chipset model).
If you are not a technical person, take out the mother board and do a reflow of the chipset with a blower or else take it to a qualified service person or authorised service center.

Safe mode


Hi there, Try tapping F8 on boot to access the boot menu select "start windows normal". if it will not let you boot in to safemode with cmd promt and run "chkdsk /f" to check for bad sectors and repair othere HD issues. Also try "Last known Configuration" as a last ditch effort before moving on to System restore. IF system restore options fail to work let me know and we can do a system restore and restore your system to an earlier time through the cmd prompt. Good luck and i hope this helps

Desktop problem


Sounds like there is a program trying to run that is locking up your computer. what was the last program you installed?

If you know, when booting up, press F8 and go into safe mode. Uninstall that program. then reboot normally.

If this does not work, you may have a virus.

Lets start with this first though.
