System doesn't boot

My system has been acting irratic, it sometimes goes to the HP Invent screen but doesn't do anything else, sometimes it goes to Window screen but then reboot by itself. Sometime I am able to get into the OS and it works fine, but then it gives me a bluescreen and exits and then doesn't start. I have opened the case and reseat all the cards and RAM, and I have already recovered the system once before and it didn't solve the problem. Anyother ideas...

Make sure you've updated the system BIOS on this computer. Goto HP website look up the computer, look for updates...download the BIOS update...resolves intermitten crashing. Since updating the BIOS I haven't had any more crashes or lock ups.

Sounds to me that you have a RAM problem. From another computer do a google search for memtest86. You will be led to a download of memtest86. Actually download it here: http://www.memtest86.com/memtest86-3.4a.iso.zip extract the .iso file to a location on that computer. There read this: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/burnisofile.htm follow the instruction to create your memtest86 CD.

Boot from the CD and test the RAM in your computer. If it fails the test you will need to replace some RAM. You might have more than one RAM card in your computer. You can isolate your problem by testing with one card at a time. Also make sure to test in different slots and to retest a failing card in another slot to determine if the problem is with your motherboard.

I have an HP Pavillion a1250n which has a MS-7184 V1.0 that will not boot. When turned on the HP Invent logo screen appears with thw following at the bottom:(Esc=Boot Menu)(F1=Setup)(F10=System...


It sounds as though you might have a problem with BIOS.
You should remove your motherboard battery (little round silver disc) and if you can find (or Google motherboard model#) the CMOS reset jumper, you can remove the battery for 30 seconds and put it back in and reset the CMOS, then see if it boots. If it doesn't, you might need to flash the BIOS, which is not recommended unless you know what you are doing.

Hp mini screen is blank


Hello imlapd. If you don't even see words on the screen when you first turn it on (the BIOS puts things on the screen before it boots to Windows), then there are 2 possible causes. First, the video output or something else on the motherboard is bad. Second, the LCD display (the laptop screen) has failed. The cost to fix either one of these will be close to what the laptop cost brand new if not more. The good news is, if your HP Mini is less than a year old or you got an extended warranty, HP will fix it for free. You just have to call their customer service.

When I restart (and sometimes when i use start)my computer freezes at HP invent. Then I have to turn it off by pressing the ON button for 5 or more seconds. Wait a few seconds and press the ON button again...


Try this, it may work for you. What I’m going to suggest is entering the DOS environment and making necessary changes to get your pc up and running.

- Reboot> At reboot watch for DOS screen option “enter setup” via a F button option. You have to watch closely because on some pc’s this option goes by quick, so be ready to act. Once in the DOS environment navigate to “boot options” choose safe mode . Save changes and exit. When your os is up go immediately to system restore: Click Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date before your issue arose.>click next/continue and wait for system to restore. Reboot, and enter DOS environment once more and go to boot options and choose “Normal boot”>save changes and exit and you should be done. I hope this helped or at least gave you some ideas for further investigation.
