Try checking out to see if maybe you have a bad memory inside first. then if thats not the problem im gonna have to figure your hard drive might be going bad because of corrupt files and fragments.

    This was the problem a month ago - exact same thing. A clean install of XP was done and everything worked great. She did say a popup came up, while at a website, saying "the site has a virus, click here to place virus in the vault, etc". She unknowingly clicked on that option. when she went to start the machine the next time she got the startup option screen.
    With a clean install of XP do you think it's a corrupt file?

    IT SOUNDS LIKE THE ANTI VIRUS MALWARE. THEY ARE PRETTY SNEAKY MASKING THEMSELVES AS IT COMES FROM MICROSOFT. LOOK WHAT I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE WHEN THIS KIND OF STUFF HAPPENS IS COPY ANY IMPORTANT PICS TO A THUMB DRIVE OR DISK OR AND TEXT DOCUMENT. BUT SAVE NO PROGRAMS, AND DO A COMPLETE FULL FORMAT OF THE PC OR LAPTOP. BUT IF ITS A NEWER LAPTOP OR DESKTOP THEN YOU WILL HAVE A SYSTEM RECOVERY PARTITION INSTALLED ON IT AND DURING 1ST BOOT SCREEN YOU CAN CLICK ON THE KEY THAT TAKES YOU TO SYSTEM RECOVERY AND IT WILL BE SET BACK TO FACTORY DEFAULTS JUST LIKE YOU 1ST BROUGHT IT HOME FROM FACTORY OR STORE

Hp pavilion dv9000 takes a long time to get past the bios screen. It won't boot of dvd either??


Check BIOS boot options and assign local hard drive as first for faster boot. This is also where you set CD\DVD as first to boot from disc. Look for F Key press on start up. It will be shown on screen. These can vary.

Many HP machines also have a boot menu option during boot. Again an F key and may vary.

It wont boot, goes to black screen with whit blinking dash


Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.

Catostrophic failure while watching mp4 video. short buzz noise then black screen, no video now, won't boot. just fan noise. stuck in hibernate?


That buzz noise is concerning... was it out of your speakers or did it sound like something else?
I would unplug everything from the lapotp, including the battery, let it sit for a few minutes then try to boot it up again (after plugging in the battery). If still no luck, unfortunately you will need to take it somewhere to get it looked at (or call Gateway if it's under warranty).
