Question about HP Compaq d530 CMT PC Desktop
You mentioned that you are not even able to get the HP logo when you boot up. This might be a hardware problem.. to confirm it, I suggest, you try to go to the BIOS and see if it freezes or restarts from there. If it does, then it is definitely a hardware problem.
If it is an Operating System problem, you can try this.
If you have your Operating System CD handy, boot to it and start the Recovery Console. under recovery console choose which operating system you would like to repair, normally it's number 1. It might prompt you for a password but if you don't have any password for the admin, just press enter.
It will give you a command prompt where you can start to repair your operating system.
tyoe this command: CHKDSK /R
this might take a while as it will scan for any corrupted system file and will repair it. Once the repair is complete, it will reboot your computer and you should be able to use it again.
Thanks for using Fixya
