When I am trying to boot, it just freezes with the Windows sign and dosen't do anything. I can see the cursor, and the fan are running. It will boot in Safe Mode but won't restore to an earlier time? I am Navy in Iraq and do not have the option of a repair store. Thanks

It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!
If the system will not complete boot, try the F8 boot menu and select safe mode and see if the system will boot to windows.
If the system boots to windows, you could have software issues or a startup item causing the system to hang at boot, try turning off the startup group items in MSCONFIG (Start, run, MSCONFIG) and see if the system will boot in normal mode.
If that is not help, hold the Fn Key while pressing the power buttong this should start PSA diagnostics on the system, see if any hardware fails
Either you have an operating system problem or memory issue.
First, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when powering on). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date. Follow the process.
If still a problem, disconnect all cables. Remove the battery. Be certain to dispel static electricity by touching metal. Remove the memory cover. Try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test). Replace the cover and battery and boot.
instead of Safe Mode, have you tried Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu?
If that doesn't work you may have corrupted windows system files. You can rule out the hardware by downloading and burning a CD with a Linux Live system on it. That will boot into a Linux desktop without installing anything on your hard disk or overwriting your files. If that boots OK then you know that your windows system files are damaged and you may need to reload windows.
It may be caused by overheating. Overheating is the main problem with HP portables. Use a fan to cool down the computer and check how long it last working. If blowing air with a fan "Appears to fix the problem" stop using the computer and get maintenance service for it. The processor area needs to be cleaned.
First of all provide detail when does the cursor freezes after booting to the desktop or before and if after are you able to use it after booting to the desktop?
Try to boot in safe mode and check if it works fine then problem is either with your hardware or one of the third party applications or start up items assuming Microsoft and Computer first and second party
When you said your cursor freeze, does the computer still respond or the whole computer froze. If the computer froze, then it could be anything from, memory, hard drive, cpu, or mainboard. Does the keyboard works, if just the cursor freeze, try using a usb mouse.
