Slow boot after installing the HP 4380

I have an HP L2000 laptop with Windows XP Pro. I just installed the 4380 and it installed OK and printed wireless just fine.

But now when I turn on the computer it takes forever to boot up. The desktop background pops up but the icons take forever, almonst like it's not going to boot up. There is a long lull and the HD light flickers and then runs and then the icons show up. But the hour glass runs for a long time.

Before the install of the 4380 the laptop booted fairly fast. also it seems like the computer runs slower.

Any suggestions before I attempt to call HP.

Thanks,

Richard

    This is happening to me too. Except this is a brand new 7280 all in one HP that I bought because my older by only 2 yrs HP printer was making my system that has a brand new mother board take what seems like forever - 3 minutes or so - to boot ... sitting at the screen that gives the option to press F8 but that doesn't work ... no keystrokes work ... it must be waited out ... i have found that if i disconnect the printer, it boots fine ... but shouldn't my boot be faster with a printer attached ??? ... a brand new properly installed printer??

I am running XP Pro and I have a HP F2280 and had the same problem of a slow startup, 90 secs before desktop icons appeared and before computer would connect to the net.

After reading some spurious half baked solutions on various forums I found the culprit(s).

The solution:

In Services disable hpqcxs08 and HPCUE Discovery Service, these will stop the slow boot up and as far as I can tell at the moment. They are listed under the Microsoft Corporation manufacturer column which threw me initially.

Only one of these might be the cause of the slow boot but the printer appears to be working fine with both disabled so I won't be enabling either unless I have to.

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.


I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/35/
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7

How to downgrade vista to winxp pro at Hp pavilion DV4-1204TU ?


Well, this may make you think twice:

I bought a presario from circuit city last year, and I paid $200 to downgrade to XP. Everything was fine until it crashed last week. IT went completely bizzerk. HP won't provide support, cause I changed it. Circuit City is out of business, not much help there.

Basically, I am completely #$%%@@.

I am now paying to get Vista put back in. :-(

How want to downgrade win vista to xp pro hp compaq v3000


If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.

How instile MS xp for notebook CP


If you have Vsta already loaded on your laptop and want to get rid of it, in favor of XP Pro, you must do a few things.
1 - determine if there are any files you need to keep, like documents (Word, etc.) or spreadsheets (Excel XLS, etc.) and like that.
2 - use a DVD-R or RW and write all the critical documents to the DVD so that you don't lose them in this process. Do a simple Copy from Windows Explorer.
3 - once all has been saved, the easiest way to accomplish what you want, is to boot the laptop using a legal Microsoft XP Pro CD or DVD, then follow the instructions to creating a bootable version of XP Pro on the lapop.
4 - you will need to decide if you want to have a dual-boot system or only an XP Pro system.
5 - if you want dual boot, follow the instructions; if XP Pro only, then follow those instructions. They should all reside on the XP Pro installation disk.

But remember that XP Pro is an older OS than Vista, so your installation media will only be able to get you so far. I would recommend following the instructions to creating an XP Pro bootable laptop only, and that means to then format the entire C drive, and then use the install media to create an XP Pro C Drive.

6 - go from there to an XP Pro laptop.
7 - as soon as the system is finished, and stable, rather than starting to install all the applications you want, like Office or other applcations, go to Microsoft's update site and update your XP Pro laptop to the newest versions of those things which will protect your system from outside problems. Update the protection applications from Microsoft first. Let the Update Site recommend, and choose from that list.

If you're going to install an anti-virus, like Norton AV, then start by installing the newest version of Norton AV or 360 or Internet Protection, etc. Then, go to the Symantec/Norton site, and update all those applications, too, especially the latest virus definitions or signatures.

Do it that way, to ensure your system is built slowly and with the most safety possible.

Be careful, and deliberate, and make sure you do not rush through this process, as it is extremely important to do it right, right from the start.

Good luck!

Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop Won't Boot Up


The laptop won’t POST after removing the memory? Sounds like the memory module (s) need to be reseated again. Removing memory will not reset the laptop. If you want to install a clean Windows XP load, you need to boot from the Windows CD and format the hard drive.
Fell free to contact me if you need futher assistance.
