I have an HP ProBook 6540b Laptop. When I boot up, it goes into system recovery, then shows a message that the system could not be recovered. I reboot, and it boot into windows. When I log on, I have a black background, and I get 2 error messages. 1 - "HP Power Assistant could not be started properly. A problem might have occured during installation. Please run the HP Power Assistant Installer." If I try to access the HP Power Installer throught the control panel, it doesn't open. 2 - HP Wireless Assistant - Wireless information unavailable, the application will now close.

SOURCE: Windows startup error

If it is Windows Vista and it happened after a Windows Update, you might have the problem as described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article KB946084. No matter what you do (any F8 option such as Safe Mode or Command Prompt, or trying to boot from a Vista CD) you end up at the Blue Screen of Death.

Something is corrupted on the hard drive (not a hardware error) and now Vista has a fit if it sees the drive, even as a secondary or external drive (it goes to the BSOD with STOP: 0x0000C1F5).

The only solution so far is to erase the Vista partition and re-install Vista. You can take the drive and connect it to another computer running XP (using an external drive enclosure for example) to get the data off of it. Then do a format on the partition. Now reinstall the drive and you can load Vista. If you have no Vista disk but there was a Recovery Partition, this will now work.

SOURCE: ScanJet 5300c didn't work

Most likely the destination folder for the scanning is a shared folder with limited rights. As the administrator, reset the permissions for that folder or redirect the software to a common folder with read/write/creation etc... access.

Also, make sure you are using the HP provided drivers and not those from Microsoft.

SOURCE: windows Error Recovery - ''an unexpected I/O error occured''

This seems to be serious problem. Please share the exact error message. If there are any external devices connected to the system please remove and then try to boot the system again.
Also post the brand and model of your laptop so that we can be more specific in terms of the steps.

Thank you

When i switch on my hp probook 4420s it cannot load the operating system but keeps restarting

Try going to bios by pressing del while starting. Check the boot sequence if your HDD is on the list and selected as primary. You can also try HP recovery by pressing F11 key as soon as you power on the laptop.

Brand new Hp probook 6540b blank black screen after battery dying fan also works over time any ideas to fix?

I have had this. Unplug the laptop, take the battery out and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

HP told me this was caused my "excessive charge on the mainboard"

The above process drains the charge
