At startup fan running full speed and computor will not boot up

This may be a board issue with this machine. We know the power supply works fan is turning. If your hearing any beeps then maybe the memory chip went bad. You can test that by removing parts one at a time then power on and off replacing parts until it works then you will know which parts are bad if any. You can also make sure the fan area is free of debris critical for any computer. So more than likely since I have a pile of computers in my shop that power up but do not run means "Possible Board Issue" not to say for you this may not be true. Now if you can see the BIOS appear that offers the option to press deleted button to boot to BIOS or you have any kind of text boot we know that the board is good. Your last ditch effort will be to start all over with a recovery disc if you have a lit BIOS appear on your screen. There you can tell if the hard disc has failed. If no BIOS and just a turning fan try for the parts removal one at a time issue if this or the BIOS is showing hopefully so you can recovery the PC otherwise you may end up purchasing a new board or a new computer. The cheapest way to go of course is up to you, I would go with a bare bones and use what parts I had off the old machine if they are good high end parts. If you do not have a recovery disc for your computer you can purchase one at hp.com. I hope that this gives you some idea on what to try and look for......John

Hp pavilion will not start need help to figure out

Ah boy, so many things could be wrong, but usually, it's something simple, but tricky, like this problem. My guess is that it still could be the power supply- it depends on how they check it. If they just measure the voltages, that can be misleading. Depending on the type of power supply, a supply line can, under the load of being hooked up, drop just enough to not function good enough. The solution to this problem is to replace it with a known, good one. If the problem's still there, then it's either your motherboard or a component that's shorting out the line. If you try a different power supply, and it's still not coming up, disconnect the CD, DVD, and any accessories to try to isolate the problem. If only the motherboard is left, you will have to have someone troubleshoot it, or replace it. A used computer store might let you try another power supply on it for free, in the hopes of selling you one, and then you would at least know the problem is with the motherboard, and they might be able to check that out for a resonable price.

Issue with trying to play mpeg2's on my computer.

I think the problem is either software related, or is the disk itself. Firstly make sure you have all the proper mpeg-2 decoders. I'd assume you do, but looking for an update for whichever software you use to watch the dvd may help. You should also troubleshoot the software by trying an alternative program and seeing if that helps. (if you use VLC, try cyberlink, etc.) Secondly, there is a chance the actual distortion lies on the disk itself. You could narrow this down by trying the disk on a dvd player and the dvd rom, paying close attention to where the problems arise. If the dvd player and dvd rom both have trouble with the same section (or if the dvd player freezes in the same place the dvd rom starts to flake) the problem may be the disk. In either case, I highly doubt your computer itself has hany flaws in it. It is either software, or the disk itself.

Removing virtual drive

It depends what program you used to add it in the first place. Open the software and look for settings, or just uninstall it.

G mean zero , the service tag does not just say "G" sorry. easy peasy lemon squeezy HP.com complex URL no? go there tell them your model # or better the service tag code ! . then magically HP puts you on YOUR service support page and all manuals and all driver before your eyes. amazing no? NO told at all or of a laptop or desktop or what./? you posted ANON so I can't just read other posts by you to learn what PC this is , no I can not. there are over 100 PC called G series, and vast years. some PCs by them G1 to 7 are generations, like HP Pavilion g6-1029tx Notebook. if you can find the service tag the product ID # is what matters most this code includes (real model, version , options and country sold) see this, older PCs by them had this. see that , all matters but do not post SN/ or service codes in public. mine: procuct code (nnnnnnABA#) https://www.pcdied.com/TAG-jive/tag-elite8540w.JPG I will guess it is 17" laptop, here is the mess just that 1 sized once you see this you know that G series means not MUCH> https://search.brave.com/images?q=hp+G+series++pavilion++17%22+G&source=web

The airplane mode button is stuck on orange although my computer say's airplane mode off

old PCs do that, for many reasons. but no PC told at all just HP. 40 years of PCs ,10000 + models nobody can guess ever. but I do have the answer, in pure generic form. did you buy the PC like that used and bad Wifi. ?
  1. the wifi card is missing, as was super common 10+ years ago.
  2. someone put in the wrong card, not from HP list
  3. HP blacklists (bios blocks) none HP cards (wifi)
  4. the card needs a driver to work if not it is dead or 1/2 dead.
  5. the PC needs 1 more driver to make the wifi buttons all work , all buttons related, if not they are dead or act odd.
  6. The OS is infected, no OS told at all, not one clue nor if upgraded the OS, and not vast drivers are wrong or missing, (classic)
Im sure this this is not the free w10 upgrade, if it was that too kills drivers dead, for sure HP told you this unstated PC will not run W10 and has zero support from HP, on w10 AS YOUR SUPPORT PAGE WILL DISCLOSE TO YOU AT HP.COM

How reinstall bios on a HP dv9000

bad news now your bricked it just like miillions did google bios update bricked my PC and cry. why are you here and not at HP.com only they can recover bios. they changed the rules now 10 time. so only they know this, and are pain to deal with. UEFI is the enemy here, new rule and regressive as can be. in fact all new PCs can not be regressed, and some old now they even delete the 20 version of bios there, to force that. not saying they did that to your PC, but keep that in your head on all HP PC. the last bios upgrade stated, no going back. the Cntrl_+B might work , the flashback bios trick\ in your manual if you read it.

I have windows vista and keep getting a message that my password expires soon. I forgot the password. Is there a way to get it. Thanks

are you locked out of VISTA desktop, not told?????? yes that is a vista option, but not by default ever. we can not see your screen to see the truth. there are 7 layers (or more) on any modern PC, even fingerprint reader. learn to post a photo of any screen you see , that fails. even use cell phone to do that and magic happens , truth. no PC told at all, 4 decades of them back to compaq HP days. vista means jan 2007 made PC if came new like that. yes one can set VISTA (any windows) to expire soon. but that is not the default ever. if someone did that to you the answer is simple. control panel + users change it. or read this, https://www.top-password.com/blog/turn-off-password-expiration-in-windows-8-7-vista-xp/
