There is a possibility that the RAM or another component connected to your motherboard is going defective on you.

you may use boot to "last know good configuration" try to reboot the computer once again, then while it is initiating, start pressing "F2" until a menu appear, now select "last know good configuration"

this method may depend on what is the type of your motherboard, but usually it is F2 or F5
if this did not work, you may try to remove your RAM, clean the contact with a pencil eraser, then put it back in.

should you have other questions, just let me know.

Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

Hi! I have a HP Pavillion Media Center Tower... about 2007. It went to a blue screen last night and when I woke up, said to restart. I just beeps at me now. Can you help?


Hello there and welcome to fixya
Sorry it took so long getting back with you i have been real busy
OK on the blue screen can you please tell me what operating system you are working with ok plus any thing that it t is saying, a lot of times the blue screen of death as it is called has a series of numbers that you can learn a lot about
What you could first try is this boot in safe mode then see if any error codes come up if so write them down and tell me about it so i can assist you there
now if you also can boot into the safe mode by pressing the f7 key right as the computer starts up then select the safe mode and see if it will boot if so go to the restore function and restore it to a time just before this happned like 3 days before it happned ok and see if it will boot up for you the right way if not then you probably have hardware or a soft ware failure
Now if u just want to bag it all you can totally restoring the computer back to the original condition when it was purchased
This is done by once the computer is turned on you can press the f11 key and the system restore will come up then select the recovery that you would wish to perform normally i will go with the system restore ok then follow the instrucktions ok"
Now on the beeps that u have mentioned please provide me with how many beeps this may be a video error or a error with stuff inside of the computer that may need attention like fans getting dirty and overheating the system or cables and connections needing resetting or even the cmos battery will give a beep when it is ending its life cycle (on some models) ok
SO please keep me posted on how this goes so i can continue to help you in the best way that i can ok?
Best regards MIke

HP had blue screen and said it would shut down. Problem is that it does turn off, so that it can be re-booted. Have tried to shut off PC, but continues to come on and not start.


Hold the power button in for 10 to 15 seconds for hard shut down if that doesn't work unplug power for about 5 minutes then plug power back in and see what happens

Hp screen wont start up i just get the blue hp screen f10 = start up esc= boot menu f11=system recovery f9 = dignoses when i pree these buttonms nothing happens tried unplugging everything and still...


If pressing F11 ("system recovery") does nothing, then your disk-drive, which contains a "system recovery partition" is inaccessible,
i.e., your disk-drive has failed.

You'll need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, and use the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.

Blue Screen


Use the following steps to replace the missing files when Windows cannot start.

  1. Turn the computer on and place the first recovery disc into the top drive.
  2. After inserting the disc, turn the computer off, wait about ten seconds, and turn the computer on again.
  3. If an HP Recovery screen displays "Press any key to continue...", press the spacebar.
  4. To continue, read the warning screen and click OK.
  5. Click Advanced Options at the top of the screen.
  6. Click Selective Recovery.
  7. Read the Select Files to Restore window that appears.
  8. Type the name of the file. For example, if the error message is MNYUTIL.DLL is linked to missing export MFC42.DLL, type MFC*.DLL.
  9. Click OK. If there is more than one recovery disc, it may be necessary to insert another disc when prompted.
  10. When therecovery process has finished copying files, remove the disc andrestart the computer. If problems, persist it may be necessary toperform a system restore or a non-destructive recovery.

Keyboard not functioning properly - ple'se ple'se help


First, we must find out if either its your keyboard that's busted or it has something to do with windows. If you can get hold of another keyboard, shut off the computer, switch keyboard, then power up the computer then see what happens. If it still does the same thing, try to do a system restore, click start>All Programs>Accessories folder>System Tools> then click system restore. Click next on the first system restore page> then choose a BOLD date that you're sure that the keyboard is still working fine. Click next, then click next again. Just just let go, the computer will automatically restart. At the end of the system restoration process a pop up will appear when you get to the desktop screen. Just click next. Test your keyboard. If it still does not work. Back your data then reinstall windows. You can also do PC restore if your computer has the capability to do PC Restore by restaring computer, on the dell logo screen(this screen appeaRS A FEW SECONDS AFTER TURNING ON THE COMPUTER)hold down CTRL key on KBoard while tapping F11. just follow the instructions given by the Symantec program.
