I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

Hello - try a hard reset - firstRemove battery, AC adaptor connection and then hold down the Power button for 30 secs.then reconnect all - see if it boots. if that dont work - try to hit F8 after you power on, you may need to tap the key or hit the ESC key for a menu.then try booting into safemode.from there you can try to do a "Restore" - type restore in search box and run the MS system restore - select a date before your problem started.

I'm also seeing this issue . HP Pavilion g6-b50us, 4GB RAM, Windows 7.  On boot, I get a blank screen, amber F12, Caps Lock blinks every 5 seconds. Here are the steps I've tried so far:
 

Hard Reset: I've removed the battery, pressed the power button for 10, 30, 60 seconds, re-inserted the battery and rebooted. Fail, no change : blank screen, amber F12, Caps Lock blinks every 5 seconds.
I've removed the battery *and* the CMOS battery, pressed the power button for 10, 30, 60 seconds, reinstalled the batteries, and rebooted. Fail, no change.
I've swapped out known good RAM for the existing RAM, and have also rebooted with no RAM. Fail, no change.
I've swapped out RAM and tried all the above reset procedures. Fail, no change.
I've connected to an external VGA monitor in all the above scenarios. Fail, no change. VGA monitor appears to never be detected during boot attempts under Auto-detect or Analog connection.

The hard drive sat in a rubberized caddy, which appeared to be heat-fused in its location and was difficult to extract. The hard drive is readable, but does not appear to have suffered any thermal damage.
 
Is there any way to interrogate the BIOS, chipset, video, or components to determine a root cause and whether it's fixable or not?
 
Thanks for your help and suggestions.

I have a lot of older PC games that were bought during the XP era and was wondering if the only way to have them play properly is to upgrade to win7 pro or ultimate. I have gleaned that there is a partition thing one can do and dedicate an area on the HHD to XP but was warned if I am not an IT person that it is better to leave that alone and I am assuredly not an IT geek or whatever and to be honest I know enough to be dangerous, you know, the kind of person that needs a blow by blow in a nice and slow manner so it'll sink in. Picture in your mind and old Southerner that is on the brink of retirement(the 60's where real good to me if you get my meaning)

That being said I have also heard if you want to play games get a game player, but I have a lot of combat flight sims that I really like.

This HP Laptop has not been booting properly. After some investigation, I came up across the LED blink/beep problem codes and was hoping to utilize that page. The problem is, on my laptop, the Caps Lock LED light constantly flashes and does not stop, unlike on the problem code page where it says it should stop to give me an idea of what the problem is. Additionally, the LED light on the Wireless key is a solid red color. After multiple attempts, I cannot find anything about an infinite caps lock blinking and a solid red light. I've attempted the hard reset, where I take out the battery and the AC Adapter and hold the power button down for an extended period of time. I've also reseated the RAM sticks. I've also even taken out the CMOS battery and replaced that.  If possible, could it just be a failure system board/motheboard? I've been told that if I take out the RAM and try powering on the device, the device should beep at me since it doesn't recognize any RAM, but in my case, it doesn't beep. Any other ideas?

HP Pavilion 6355 has the following issues:

1) Computer will not shut down by holding in power button. It must be "unplugged from outlet."

2) When power cord plugged in the light sequence on the tower reads, from left to right, yellow, green.

3) A Thumping sound comes from speakers, not the typical Bios Beeps.

4) Monitor is blank, yellow light indicator on.

5) Cannot open CD Drive, even manually.

This computer belongs to a friend of mine whose daughter uses it for High School work. She was working on it one day, received an error message, no, no, writing it down would be to easy , so she shut down using start-shutdown, and left for school. When she came back and resumed her work she was met with the above scenario.

Any ideas as to the most expeditious way to get to root of issue.

Start the computer and press 'esc' key to get into bios, then choose Boot Options or Boot Menu, then choose the USB device (Few BIOS have an option to enable/disable Legacy boot options, hence you have to enable it before you could change the boot sequence.Please note that the USB device needs to be on top of boot device list.

When I try to boot the PC it dies and starts over again. I can choose safe mode etc and go into the recovery console but still no success.

What can be the problem? Motherboard? RAM memories??

Is there a way to check for errors on the motherboard or RAM from the recovery console?

How to perform a Repair Installation of Windows? XP.

Two things are needed here, just a bit of old technology, an ink pen and a piece of paper to write down any special settings that might have to be changed back after the repair-installation is completed.

Please Note: Performing a "Repair Installation" in this manner should not delete any Personal Files, it should 'repair' the core of the installation but to be safe with your data you should follow the next two paragraphs.

You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or external hard drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable. and do the following:

Hi Ossita
If the boot order is set to optical drive first, the laptop looks at its internal optical drive. Since it seems like the internal optical drive is not usable(?) then you need to set the boot order to USB or external device ahead of the hard drive.

It no longers boots up, no beeps, no blinking LEDs, no sign of life!

Here's the details,
HP Pavilion p6218f from 2009 ( win 7 )
prod #: AU993AA-ABL

Recently, the computer was having trouble after using sleep mode. It would sleep, then turn off completely, but the power switch would not turn the computer on, I would have to unplug, re-plug to start it up again.

Three days ago, the above happened, but unplug-replug would not help. Now the computer will not turn on. No beeps, no fans, no lights.

When plugged in, there is a green light on the power supply ( kind of flickers when first plugged in ) and there is a green led lit up on the motherboard.
All peripherals are disconnected, including mouse, keyboard and monitor.

Here is what I have tried:
1. Replaced CMOS battery.
2. Looked into CMOS reset - unplugged, removed cmos battery, held down power button for 15 seconds.
3. Exchanged power cord for another one.
4. Shorted green wire and black wire on 24 pin connector, plugged in - power supply fan runs,
5. Checked 24 pin connector ( with green and black shorted ), got 3.3, 5, and 12 volts.
6. Checked yellow wire, and red wire on a 4 pin connector. got 12v and 5 v

I have a Pavilion DV 6700 that I am attempting to repair. The issue is when its powered on it goes straigh to "Press F1 to rsume, F10 to Setup. F1 does nothing, F10 doenst do much either. When I enter the BIOS to perform a HDD self check, it says the self test is disabled. When you first power the laptop on, the HDD light does come on for short time. I have tried resetting the BIOS, booting with a Vista disk (I believe this is the OS installed, however not 100% sure). When I boot with a Vista disk, recovery find no HDD. I tried with an XP disk, and got the same result. This is a SATA drive, however the connecters seem to be more vertical and not horizontal, meaning I cant plug the drive into one of my drive caddies to test the drive that way, or even to recover some data, if the drive is truly bad (or just the master boot sector).

I have read that the BIOS on this particular machine may not provide the self test and that the BIOS would need to be flashed, however I am not sure how to do this with the Windows EXE that HP provided, if I cant get it to boot

Has anyone seen anything like this before...? I have some a lot of HDD issues, but not one like this, at least not with this kind of SATA connection that isnt your "general" SATA connection.

Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks all!

    Hi! If the caps lock is blinking twice it mean the bios is corrupted You can try to rollback the bios, press and hold the windows key then press hold tas well the letter B, while holding those keys power up the pc If nothing happens, try to power on again but immidiately tap ESC repeatedly , startup menu will appear on the screen. If you dont have the start up menu, try to power on again then immidiately tap F2 or F10 In F2 there's an option BIOS management,  choose the option ROLLBACK IN F10,  set the bios into defaults by pressing f9 , then f10 again to save the changes and reboot the system.   Thanks!

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.

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.

    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.

I'll report this topic to appropriate helpers.
1. Please let us know what Windows version you have and if it's 32- or 64-bit.
2. Is the computer bootable in any mode?
Hold on there....
