My system wont boot.. @ once..need many try to make it boot...

I have the slimline s7520n. my problem is.. system doesnt boot when u press the power at one time.. you will need to keep trying to make it boot... and when finally boot. and your on the windows.. after few minutes or hour.. it will shutdown.. and wont boot on again... im suspecting that theres something wrong with either the system or the video.. can you give me answer or idea.. which will be the problem.. i tried a lot of work on this one.. i re install the windows thinking maybe virus did this..after new window... still do the same... ( the lights(power) is on, system seems running i can hear, hard drive works fine (i tried to the other system) the led lights responds with orange/green color. )

Hey there jolen 323. The issue may be related to your power supply failing, however that would be a pain to replace, so lets consider that video idea. If iyou have a video card, remove it and connect your monitor to the onboard video. If this is effective, replace your video card. Next check your motherboard capacitor to ensure you have not popped any. Normally they are flat on top. When they begin to peak or somtimes burst, there is your problem and may also be related to power supply issues, or poor memory configuration. Also ensure your ram is in good condition and the proper type for your board. If using more than 1 stick, try removing the one furthest from the CPU, and give a test start. the only thing left is to replace Power supply if you are confident in the board. Good Luck!

I had the same problem with my computer. The power supply went and was only putting power out to the drives and nothing to the motherboard. I put in a newer and larger power supply and it works alot better.

The computer hangs all the time and will not boot about 40% of the time.

If you have the operating systems disk boot to the disk like you are going to reload operating system ( OS disk example Window XP or Vista Disk) Run though the steps on screen till you get to the point where it asks if you want to load a fresh copy of OS, this will be past the point where you press F8 to continue. Do not load fresh copy of OS. There should be an option to repare you OS. This will fix the OS with out loosing any of you files and stuff on the PC.

Computer wont install windows strange problems ensue.

are you pressing any key to boot from the cd when you get that message??

after windows finishes copying all the installation files during the first stage (dos mode) of the os installation you get a reboot, after the reboot, you should get that message that says press any key to boot from the cd, DON'T PRESS ANY KEY (or you will start again), leave it cd in.. just don't press any key... hopefully the installation process will continue on it's own onto the next stage (graphical mode).

if the computer just goes back to the dos mode without you pressing anything the problem may actually be a real problem and it may require further troubleshooting..

see how that goes with the first suggestion and post back if needed.

good luck

Change HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n Video Card?

The on-board RadeonXpress 200M graphics is a dog. It offloads a lot of work to your cpu, and shares system memory which ties up the bus and detracts from the memory available to the OS.

The s7520 suffers from thermal problems due to it's size and poor ventilation. It also has a very limted power supply. Therefore, your choices are also limited. If you could score Radeon X600 or X1300 with 128MB for cheap somewhere it would be a worthwhile upgrade. It does need to be PCI (not PCI-E) and half-height (low profile).

Need to format the hard drive for HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n, but I don't have the recovery disk. Any ideas on how to do it?

If you own the computer and it is still in warrenty then i would call up HP and explain the situation and have them send you a recovery disk, if it is not in warrenty they may still do it but if it doesnt work your other option is to purchase one or to Pirate one which wouldnt be illegal if you used the product key that came with your computer.
