Hp Pavillion 5000 notebook

My hp laptop is having a bad day, we use this for business. It comes on and goes to the different type modes, I have tried safe mode all the way down to select last known working one and neither of them work, it rolls to another screen and shows the windows xp logo and gets caught in a "loop" reverting back to the mode screen again. Help.. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Two things possibly, first, the cmos battery is flat causing cycling reboots, or you need to press and hold the power button while its booting up to turn it off to bring it out of restart

    you need to access the motherboard by removing all the underside panels, then look for a large watch type battery

Bad day, huh? Here area couple of quick and easy things to try that may fix your problem. Then again, they may not,but it never hurts to try!

1) Take out your laptop battery.
2) Remove your AC power cord, that's the wall power, removeit.
3) Now hold down your poser button for at least 30 seconds.

That will drain any static electricity that has builtup on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of ablack screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power andhit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up. Reinsertyour battery.

If that doesn't resolve the situation try step 2

Step 2 Bad memory Your memory (RAM) may need to be removed, andthen put back in (reseated). The videoshares the system's memory, and will not function if there is a problem.
1) Reseatmodule(s).
2) Swapmodule, preferably with known good.

Hope this helps the situation and makes your day go better!
