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

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.

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!

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.

My spouses laptop which had not been used in months, on plugging it into my router/ modem was working fine, updated Norton , still worked okay then windows updates came down 112 plus 5 optional updates were installed, after doing a restart I found the mouse would not work and One note kept popping up and the notebook kept freezing up. I finally tried to resyore to an earlier date, no difference, then I tried a refresh but that failed with an error message, no idea what it said it flashed on and off so fast I did not have a chance to read it. Now I am doing a recovery using the HP recovery discs, it just prompted me to insert disc 2, on the instruction sheet sent with the discs it says to press F9 but it seems that did not work so tried F 11 and that worked. I have never been able to set him up with his own Microsoft account password, it always rejects it or changes mine, phone Microsoft many time about this but no help.If anyone can let me know what is going on with this laptop let me know, I cannot use it without the mouse although my spouse can, but it should work. Inserted disc 2 and pressed enter but a long list of messages appeared about no bootable device, so now I am really stuck. please help, it was windows 8and the updates were windows 8.1.

Hi,I'm afraid that there is only one supported processor for the laptop. The E-350 one. I have got a DM1 maintenance and service guide and according to this there no other processors except the E-350..

My laptop was working perfect last night. I opened it this morning and the screen was black and the power button was flashing. Thinking it was dead I plugged it in and the power button turned off. Now the laptop won't turn on at all.The light shows its charging orange when plugged in. When I take the battery out the charging light turns white. I've tried the hard reset, removing the battery, everything the forums have said.The laptop is only 5 months old, but there are no HP sellers near by to help correct the issue.

Trying to find out if the HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab247cl has an internal battery and what it would mean if and when the battery fails.  Or if it is a replacable battery without sending it in to replace. Thank You

A:HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab247cl

crabman198 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!All laptops have internal CMOS batteries as they are needed to retain the CMOS settings when the laptop is shut down. This is the link to the Maintenance and Service manual for your PC: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04642845 On page 54, it shows the steps for accessing and removing the battery. If you remove the battery, that will reset the CMOS settings -- but you can easily change them once the battery is replaced and you restart the laptop.Good Luck

When I use my shift key to access secondary symbols, it does not use the standardized ones but the blue ones instead.  For example, shirt + 2 gives me quotations rather than the at sign.   Please help!

It's a good sign when you don't even understand the "Choose Board" selections. My 3.5-year-old HP Pavilion g6 shuts down without warning. The Support Center has been WAY less than helpful. Hoping someone can help. THANK YOU.

I am running xp pro ....... which I love. Problem is Quick Play on the keyboard has stopped working for whatever reason. All the buttons seem frozen - they are lit but do nothing? When the computer is off, quick play does not launch either.
Any suggestions please!
