My HP Pavilion Notebook 10 will not boot

Q: My HP Pavilion Notebook 10 will not boot

When I turn on my HP Pavilion 10 Notebook PC it goes to a blue screen that says Recovery at the top. The basics of the messages are PC could not start correctly, required device is not connected, error code 0xc0000185, needs recovery tools on installation media. I do not have installation media nor do I know how to get one. Could someone please help me with this.

Preferred Solution: My HP Pavilion Notebook 10 will not boot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,I have ongoing issues with my HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-P287SA, Windows 10.  Yesterday it would not boot, instead it flashed the caps-lock LED at me once which I beleive is a CPU issue. I did a hard reset on it (took the battery out ect.) and it booted and worked normally all day. This moring it again won't boot again but this time it beeps twice, waits a few seconds and then beeps twice again, five tinmes in total, and then it flashes the caps-lock LED twice, waits, and then twice again. It won't boot at all, even after a hard reset.  What does the beeping mean, what is the problem here?

Hi All:
 
Mr Bruce 1959 has suggested I re-post my problem here so here goes:
    A few weeks ago I started to download DVDShrink from what looked like a perfectly legitimate company site. After I clicked to download the program it began instead to install itself. At the same time all kinds of alarms went off - Comodo, Malwarebytes, etc. - and I quickly shut down.
    After booting up I ran a quick Mbam scan and it found 32 infected files which I deleted. I then ran a full Mbam scan and it found a bunch more. Later I also ran full Mbam and Avast scans but this time around neither came up with anything.
    For a few days everything ran OK but then Firefox began to freeze up whenever I brought up a web page with a Youtube video on it. Then other things started to freeze - Task Manager, etc. - and now it's reached the stage that the computer won't boot. The computer won't even start in Safe Mode. At best it just brings up my mouse pointer (which works) and the Windows Welcome screen but nothing more.
    Different Windows messages have appeared at times one of which said something to the effect that Windows was stopping to prevent further damage. There is a separate RECOVERY partition on the D drive for restoring the computer to factory settings but I can't access it.
 
Pressing the F keys on startup bring up the following screens while pressing the ESC key on startup brings up a menu listing all five of thes... Read more

My 4.5-year-old HP Pavilion P7-1074 desktop was down last week. Planed to get a replacement on Black Friday or Boxing Day. But I do need to run some programs inside the desktop's hard drve. So I attatched my desktop's hard dive to my HP Pavilion 15 Notebook's USB port with an Enclosure. The laptop could recognize the external hard drive as SYSTEM (F 62.2 MB free of 97.9 MB, OS (G1.11 TB free of 1.35 TB, and HP_RECOVERY (H 1.33 GB free of 11.0 GB. But I could not find out the programs I wanted to run. I went into the BIOS to set the Boot order to Boot from USB first, but I could not get the result I expected. The laptop always boots from its own hard drive. I tried all three USB ports, no one worked. Could somebody please help me?Thanks a lot!

When I push the power button, the screen remains blank & I get a LED light from the caps lock button that flashes three times, pause, three times, pause, three times.  I also get a audible sound of three beeps, pause, three beeps, pause, three beeps.  I have tried a "hard reset" & the other things suggested in the HP troubleshooting guide.  Usually after I turn the computer off after several times of dealing with the flashes & beeps, it will finally boot correctly.  I bought the notebook in 2014 & this is the first problem I have had with it.  Any help is much appreciated.

Hi I recently purchased this new Laptop and am having problems with it occasionally failing to boot into windows. I see on the HP Website that there is a BIOS update for this machine that apparently addresses the problem I am experiencing but I am confused because my current BIOS Version is not shown in the list of previous BIOS software versions and when I run the installed Support Assistant softtware on the machine there is no mention of a BIOS update. As an aside, I have done every recommended software updates using the Support Assistant, yet when I look at the available updates on the Web Site for my machine there a numerous others being shown.  Also, some updates are repeated as Rev A and Rev B, and I don't know what this means.  Furthermore, because there are updates for other software items, for different makes of hardware, I would have expected only those updates to appear in the Support Assistant that are relevant to my particular machine. I would appreciate any advice or comment on this situation before I proceed further. Mo

SCK1 Sorry to hear your HP DV6 has crashed.  I have one myself and they are really good laptops. There is nowhere you can download a Win7 image that will work on your laptop because it uses an HP OEM version of Windows, and that can not be downloaded.  Instead, you have to order it from HP, and it is included in something known as HP Recovery Media. HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.Unfortunately, HP no longer stocks recovery media for a lot of the DV6, so they might not carry the media you need. If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you should check are: http://www.computersurgeons.com/ and http://www.restoredisks.com/ Please NOTE that the HP Recovery Function erases the ENTIRE content of the hard drive, so if there are any files or folders you want to retain, you need to copy those off to USB stick or external drive before you run the Recovery function.Good Luck

Hi, It is great to upgrade system to Windows 10, but in the same time, series of issues occur, like the USB device issue. After upgrading the system to Windows 10, you find that your USB device cannot connect to your PC. You may need to plug your external devices like MP3, pen drive, printer, etc. to your computer through the USB ports. So it is very inconvenient that the USB ports don?t work properly. Solutions below may help you fix the USB port issue. Since your USB device works properly before you upgrade the system, the problem most probably is not caused by the USB device. But you can also plug the USB device to another computer. If it unfortunately doesn?t work, you can consider replacing the device. Following are the solutions to figure out the problem. Solution 1: Check if the problem is caused by power supply issue 1. Unplug the power supply and charger plug from your PC.2. Restart your PC. Connect your USB device to the PC again. Then you can plug the power supply.Solution 2:The Power Management would also be the cause of the USB problems. Windows is set to shut down your USB controller to save power by default, sometimes it won?t be able to power it back up. So try following steps to prevent Windows from ?managing? power to your USB controller or the devices.1. Open Device Manager.2. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers branch.3. Double-click the USB Root Hub device, and click the Power Management tab. (if there?... Read more

wow that is pretty hot... does it always run that hot, or does it only run that hot when he's gaming, or watching a movie? could just be a demanding laptop, but then again you could take it to a PC specialist (comp usa or local computer shop) and get the powersupply checked out. dang if it's melting the tip thats pretty hot... My dad's apple powerbook gets up to 75 degrees celcius when he's just surfing the web and stuff, so hot you have to take it off your legs if you don't want to burn yourself. so get it checked out, might just be a demanding laptop.

I'm having a Pavilion  HP DM4 i5 ,  with 6 GB RAM installed. Is it possible to upgrade the RAM to 16 GB - which RAM-Modules do I need then? On the official documents the maximum RAM is 8 GB, but at the time, the documents were made, no 8GB-Modules were available. Does the BIOS support 8GB Modules? The notebook has two slots, so my hope is, if I replace the built in 2x4GB with 2x8GB, I'll have 16 GB of RAM. For what I need this? Running different virtual machines at one time for working. :-) Thanks for your help!

Welcome
You dmps are showing code 116, and that can be a problem as small as a driver, but can be hardware, such as memory or worse
atikmpag.sys
You can update the driver.
If it is anything else it is most likely hardware related. Since it is new, you may want to exercise the Warranty. I know from past experience, too many changes will void the warranty.

Hi!I am using HP Pavilion 15 Notebok PC (F6C42PA#ACJ). It came with Win 8.1 preinstalled on a 1 TB HDD. I have upgraded the OS to win 10 and now want to upgrade my HDD to a SSD. I was wondering if Transcend TS256GSSD370S and Samsung Evo 850 is compatible with my laptop. Also how to enable AHCI mode? I don't see any such option in BIOS.Thank you.

Got this new laptop for Christmas.  It came with only 1 stick of 8GB Ram.  Went to BB and got a pair of 8GB DDR3 1600 PC3-12800 PNY.  Now my laptop overheats and locks up.  The only difference is the old memory stick was a DDR3L, the new memory is only DDR3. This memory should work, why is it not?

A:HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab292nr

There's the problem. No it should not work. I am surprised it boots and runs. The laptop is designed for low-voltage memory and you really should not use anything else on a 6th gen Intel Core processor. Did you ask the geniuses (oops wrong store) at BB what your laptop needed or pick it out yourself? Can you take it back and get DDR3L? Pretty sure BB stocks it. The Manual: Two SODIMM slots - NON customer accessible / upgradeable DDR3L-1600 Dual Channel Support Supports up to 16 GB of system RAM in the following con?gurations: Memory module (DDR3L-1600): 8-GB 693374-005 Did you pay more than $70.44 for what you have? https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-1600MHz-PC3-12800-KVR16LS11/dp/B00CQ35HBQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=U...

Hi!I've been looking to upgrade my RAM for my PC notebook HP Pavilion dv6-3040ep. Currently it has 2x (taken from passmark.com) Ram Type: DDR3,Maximum Clock Speed (MHz): 667 (JEDEC),Maximum Transfer Speed (MHz):  DDR3-1333,Maximum Bandwidth (MB/s): PC3-10600,Memory Capacity (MB): 2048Manufacture Name: Samsung  I found using eu.crucial.com http://eu.crucial.com/ProductDisplay?displayCompatibleLogo=1&urlRequestType=Base&catalogId=10152&pro... but from the prices i saw on other sites, quite expensive overrall, for ex https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-1600MHz-PC3-12800-KVR16LS11/dp/B00CQ35GYEwhich is almost 10? less, but if the overrall quality is better, I don't mind buying the more expensive one. From what I've learned, it can only have 2x 4gb RAM to be maxed out.So, I woud like to ask if both are equally fine, if they will be compatible with my PC. Just want to make sure before I purchase, and what better place than here to ask? Also, Is there any other care that you think I should have before and after the switch? Any advices are welcome! Best regards,Paulo

Hello there...

I'm needing help diagnosing a non-working HP Pavilion ZE1000
I received it from a friend after it failed. None of the laptop leds would turn on, and there were no POST beeps of any kind. The HDD and CD unit would turn -the floppy won't, but it might be a BIOS setting-, but the screen won't show anything at all.

After double-checking the obvious (LCD disabled, brightness setting, power supply output, etc.) I checked internet and found that the DC jack is a common problem with these laptops. Sure enough, on this one it was a little loose, but even after fixing it all the symptoms stay the same. I have tried re-setting all the connectors and looking for any obvious damage on the mobo (there's none).

The weird thing is that if I leave the laptop "on" (Fan & HDD turning), after a while the CPU and the VIA chipset get warm. Should I just assume that the BIOS is fried, or are these symptoms of a defunct mobo?

Is there any guru around that has dealt with this problem before?

Thanks for your help,

JR
 

A:Help diagnosing HP Pavilion notebook

Can you try an external monitor? Disconnecting all extra hardware (drives) and replacing the memory are some things to try.

Nothing weird about CPU and chipset getting warm - BIOS is exactly that (Basic) and does not bother with power savings and such.

Hi All:
    A few weeks ago I started to download DVDShrink from what looked like a perfectly legitimate company site. After I clicked to download the program it began to install itself. At the same time all kinds of alarms went off - Comodo, Malwarebytes, etc. - and I quickly shut down.
    After booting up I ran a quick Mbam scan and it found 32 infected files which I deleted. I then ran a full Mbam scan and it found a bunch more. Later I also ran full Mbam and Avast scans but this time around neither came up with anything. I also used ERUNT to replace the Registry with a clean copy made earlier.
    For a few days everything ran OK but then Firefox began to freeze up whenever I brought up a page with a Youtube video on it. Then other things started to freeze - Task Manager, etc. - and now it's reached the stage that the computer won't boot up properly at all. Almost everything is frozen. The computer won't even start in Safe Mode. At best it just brings up my mouse pointer (which is working) and my desktop wallpaper but nothing more.
    Different Windows messages have appeared at times one of which said something to the effect that Windows was stopping to prevent further damage. There is a separate RESTORE section on the drive for restoring the computer to factory settings but I can't access it. Since I can't get into the computer to do anything at all I'm wondering if there's any way of being able to get the com... Read more

I have been using my HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-p174na for casual use (a couple of times a week, nothing strenuous at all) since I purchased it a year and a half ago. Yesterday I completed a spreadsheet and checked/sent some emails and then turned it off and put it on charge overnight.This morning I unplugged it and put it away. Then on getting it out to use again this evening I cannot get it to start. I have checked a lot of support pages and searches for the problem and have tried all solutions I have come across (hard resets, attempting turn on with and without battery and/or AV power cord). Nothing seems to work. There are no flashing lights or noises coming from the notebook at all. There also seems to be no damage to any of the cables or power equipment. Please advise what course of action I should now take.
