HP pavilion 2000 won't boot up

Q: HP pavilion 2000 won't boot up

I'm trying to get to the welcome screen to enter my password to actually use my computer.However it's stuck on the loading screen. I've tried everything online, hard reset, restore, and diagnostic testing. I cannot restore because my computer isn't connected to the Internet to create a restore point.The diagnostics say everything passed. Everything. I ran testsome on the Hard Drive for 3 days straight. So if the diagnostics can't find anything I don't know why it won't load.Btw this happened out of the blue while watching Netflix on my laptop while HDMI connected to a TV.I know about the system resetc but I'm trying to think of a way to still backup my files before deleting themy. Any advice on how to save my pc?

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.)

Dear members,

Recently I have replaced OS ME by OS 2000 because the PC went slower and slower. No trouble but the monitor HP Pavilion MX70 is only working at 16 colours and a very low resolution. Checking the system, it appears that only a basic driver was accepted. Searching the net for suitable HP drivers learned that for MX70 only drivers exist for OS95; OS98 (accepted by OSME) and OSXP but for OS2k. The OSXP driver was not accepted by the system.
Therefore I'm looking for a monitor driver suited for Pavilion MX70 in combination with OS2k. Who can help me ?

Thanks in advance and of course Merry Chrismas & Happy New Year

I have an HP Pavilion 2000 299WM notebook. I switched out the RAM sticks (from 1GB to 2GB) and put everything back together and now my laptop will not start. Correction: it starts - the lights on the keyboard light up, but there is no display and no noise from my fan that starts with booting. Everything is plugged in to the mobo the correct way and all the parts are new or close to new and work. Why is there no display?

There is no DVD drive as it took a leave of absence 8 months ago, and the battery and HDD were just replaced. HDD is running Linux and Windows, but that does not affect my display. I hooked up an external monitor and still no display.

Note that the loud popping noise comes out after I shut down my PC MANUALLY, instead of loud popping noise comes out and automatically shut down. Lately when I shut down my PC I always heard a loud popping noise at the end of the shut down.I mean this noise exists since I bought this notebook years ago, but it's getting louder and louder. The reason I decided to post here is funny though: last night when I shut down my PC and ready to go to bed (the PC is beside my bed) and when I lie down on my bed suddenly the loud popping noise comes out and I'm like OH and jumped up from the bed. It is really annoying, frustrating and embarrassing because it's 3am... Sorry for the bad English though since it's not my native language

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.

What is your goal? Do you want help fixing your current installation of Windows 2000, or do you want to reinstall everything on your computer?

If you don't have a CD with Windows 2000 on, you cannot reinstall Windows 2000. A boot disk only helps facilitate the installation of an operating system.

Hi Folks,
I'm not super techy, but I have read a ton of webpages on how to (possibly) fix my desktop computer.

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

Does all this seem like the like power supply is okay?? Should I look up which pins should have which voltages?

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.

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.

Welcome to TSF....

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:

The details that follow require an above-average understanding of the technical topics involved.

Hi: Normally, you can tap the ESC key at the beginning of the HP splash screen to get a menu of options. From that list, select the F10 boot options menu. If that doesn't work, then see if you can get into the BIOS using the method described at the link below. Watch the video.  All brand PC's with W8.1 have this feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZcYbxOcPV0 If that doesn't work, unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions to offer.

I've been running an HP Pavilion 9680c w/ Win98 SE. Everything was working fine until a few days ago...Now when I turn on the computer the following happens....

1. The Blue 'HP' Welcome screen appears
2. The Bios Boot-up Screen Appears, letting me know that my hard-drive, dvd drive, cd-rw drives (i.e. primary master, secondary master, secondary slave) have been detected. During this time, my hard-drive and disc drives all light up and are turning.
3. The bootup process stops there. WHere it should say something like 'Starting Up Windows', there is nothing. Instead the bootup process seems to just stand still.

I am able to enter the BIOS setup screen during bootup by pressing F1. I've tried replacing the hard-drive but this did not solve the problem. I also tried using recovery disks, the Windows 98 OS setup disk, and a Norton Utilities' Recovery disk, all of which have not had any effect. I was wondering if there is anything else (motherboard jumpers, etc.) that somebody thinks might work.

Thanks!

    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!

I have an HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook that will not boot. It was left unplugged for several months because I don't use it very much. I am getting ready for a vacation and usually take it along but when I plugged it in to update the OS it started downloading and installing updates then shut down and now goes into a loop. Tries to boot, gets as far as loading the desktop then black screen and then starts reboot again.
 
It has the original bios version F.34. everything there looks good. Ran HD self test from bios then memory test. Everything checks out ok. Factory OS was Vista but is now running 7 Ultimate 64bit.
 
If I try to boot in safe mode with networking I get a BSOD. Safe mode will boot. Safe mode with command prompt will boot.
 
Any suggestions?

If you are able to see the Safe Mode options you are in the Advanced Boot Options.  One of the options there is Repair Your Computer.  Run this and see if it can resolve this issue.
 
What is the make and model of this computer?
