Code purple is because an O.S other than a genuine HP has been installed and as it is HP it would have to be HP as it is designed especially to run HP computers only, For example if you try to install an O.S from a Compaq even though Hp and Compaq have merged it is written for Compaq computers not HP and vice/versa. Re-Install your original HP O.S and this should sort out the code purple error. I hope this helps.

I got a code purple trying to restore my computer to its factory settings and now when my computer tries to boot up normally I can't log in using my old password or username and the only way I hav


With the code purple error on the screen, press the shift+f10 to open the cmd prompt.
Whe the cmd prompt opens, type the following command without the quotes "notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd", then after the REM lines add the following code without the quotes "goto cleanup". Save the file and exit notepad and restart your computer by typing the following command without the quotes, "shutdown -r -t 0".
This will cause the checkdmi function in an HP computer to bypass the tattoo check.
Hope this helps

Code purple error after system recovery on windows xp how can i fix im a green hand but follow clear instructions very good


There is no way to fix a Code Purple error on an HP computer.

Basically what has happened is that there is a Hard Coded Information "Tattoo" on the motherboard that tells the computer what hardware should be on this machine.  The Hard Code and the hardware do not match.  It is kind of a known fault by HP.

But there is some good news.  No matter long your computer has been out of warranty, this problem IS covered.  The wrong hardware was put into your machine and no matter when this error occurs, HP will support it.

Call HP's tech support and when you speak to a Technical Agent, you let them know you got the Code Purple Error, and they should immediately escalate your call to their Hardware Specialists and set up a service repair where they send you a box and paid shipping label to ship your computer to one of their repair facilities where they will fix it and send it back to you at no cost.  Call 1-800-HP-INVENT.

I used to work for HP tech support and we would see a Code Purple case about once every few months, even on computers 3+ years old.

Code purple


long story of why

but to fix it.......

take you hard drive out of your computer and install it into some one else's computer ussing the CD/DVD cable( or use an IDE/SATA to USB adapter).

When you have your drive in their computer Search for the file run.py. rename the file run.p_. Take the drive bake to yours and reinstall. Reboot big sigh....
