I had to use the recovery console on the xp disk to run "fixmbr" to fix my corrupted master boot record. the mbr is the file that tells the computer where the rest of the instructions are. without the mbr, it doesn't know where to go for the next instruction, which would be from your operating system.

there is another option which fixes faulty bootup instructions.

hope that helps.

Ok so u need a passowrd to accsess the bios, not good if u dont have the password , just a quick note you dont have a floppy or cd inserted ? that can cause this problem , the laptop may have been bumbed alittle to hard and damaged the hard drive , can also be caused from not shutting the laptop down properly , you may need to reinstall xp , you can also try removing the hard drive and putting it back in nice and secure , the hard drive slot will be located at the bottom of the laptop or on the side,

    recovery disk you will need to fix , the password for the bios you may need , so you can set boot from cd rom first, but u said you can press ctrl alt delete and it takes you to boot sequence so you will need to select cd rom first , if ur gonna reinstall xp , if you have recovery cd or xp cd, you should be ok to reinstall xp without bios password, if you dont have a xp cd or recovery cd , your gonna need to get one

My lap top makes a snap nose and then truns off is it just the batterie or is could it be more just want to know if it's worth fixing it's a Hp pavilion n5350


It could jmust be the battery. When it happens, is your battery low? Does it happen if you have the lap top plugged in and not on battery power? If so, then it's not the battery.

If it is locked on the bios screen that may mean that your hardrive is completely toast..

try loading the hardrive in a compatible computer and see if it can be accessed at all..

Forgot my password 2 enter the computer


Restart system and hold down the F11 key till you hear a beep. This takes you to system restore but remember to backup your files.

Good luck.

N5350 will not power up with power adapter


Are you certain the panel didn't simply give out? Try attaching an external monitor via the rgb/vga connector. If everything id running, then thst is the likely culprit.

HP Pavilion A6130N setup error


Did you buy the computer new? It should have come with recovery disks, also called operations disks. I have had to do this with my hp pavilion lap top a few time over the past few years so that it would run faster. If the recovery disks aren't in there, call the company. They are always supposed to be included. I've always had good luck with hp, you might even go to hp's website. It's really good as well.
