Preferred Solution: Pavilion now an Omnibook (post moved)

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.)


I have a Pavilion laptop that was sent in to HP to replace the motherboard. Now the Pavilion thinks it is an Omnibook, so the original Application & Recovery CD's will not work.

Has anyone experienced this?
Is there a way to force the computer to accept the original software? Or do I now need Ominbook sotware & how do I know for which model?

BTW, HP would not make good on it, even though they admitted they installed the wrong motherboard while the laptop was still under warranty. Their reply was that "it happens" and then they wouldn't discuss it any further.

I also have always had a problem with this laptop. When I boot it up, the screen will blank out every few minutes. I use the function key & F12 to switch it from the LCD to an external monitor & back again. That brings my screen back up, but it sometimes happens every few seconds and is a real PITA. Does anyone have an idea on the cause of this problem?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I don't think that I would accept this answer from HP. At the very least they should send you the right recovery discs. Keep asking for a supervisor until you find someone who agrees that it is their job to help you!

I've dealt with viruses in the past. I've dealt with plenty of viruses.This one has stumped me.I've tried malwarebytes, hijackthis, combofix, superantispyware, trojanremover, and spysweeper.All these programs were disabled by the virus.====================================================malwarebytes installs okay, but after running a quick scan for about 5 seconds it exits, and then the files become corrupt and unmoveable/undeleteable, even after restart.hijackthis does about half of a scan then exits out.combofix gets to the point where all the green bars load, then it disappears and nothing else happens.superantispyware is not allowed to be installed because of restrictions.(even on the admin account in safemode)trojanremover found and repaired some things, but now only scans up to 47 percent and then closesspysweeper won't open but installs okay.======================================================I tried the usual cheap trick of changing the name of the program, but that didn't work.I've tried all these programs in regular mode and safe mode on multiple accounts, including freshly made accounts, including the administrator account.There is no evidence of malicious software such as Virus Removal 2009!! (or whatever)I have also tried disabling startup applications and services in msconfigReformatting is not a redily available option.Oh, and the internet is blocked, of course.Suggestions?ThanksEDIT:It looks like I have the same problem as this guy http://www.bleepingcompute...

Ok, it seems I did a bad thing by running combofix without supervision. The trouble is, it was recommended to run it by the guys at my local computer store, I guess my problem was that I didn't read all about it first before jumping in.
Combofix sure fixed that virus attack I was having, but now IE only runs about 1/3 of the time from when I launch it, mostly I just get a blank (white) screen instead.
Can anyone help me with this?!

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS unless a log is specifically requested.The trouble is, it was recommended to run it [Combofix] by the guys at my local computer storeGroan. I wish folks wouldn't do that. For the benefit of others reading this topic, ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert." It is NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system.

I just moved to a new case with a larger PSU (300 was old, 350 is new).

When I powered on the comp, I don't even get a POST. As far as I know, everything is plugged into the correct spot. I used to mobo manual for all the correct headers and I can see the power on LED illuminated. The HDD LED illuminates briefly too. The reset switch works, as well as the power switch (obviously). The CPU fan and Northbridge fan is turning. I did discharge the CMOS memory too using the jumper, but that didn't solve my problem. Any ideas? Could something have gone wrong when I moved all the components? Actually, obviously something did go wrong, but anybody have any ideas?

thx for any help

A:mobo wont POST after moved to a new case

Disconnect everything except the cpu, fans, memory, and video card with monitor and see if it will post. If not I would start by checking the standoffs to make sure one is not shorting the motherboard to ground. To do this you could even take the board loose and put it on a piece of cardboard to insulate it and see if it will post.

Ok I have been basically letting problems build up on my computer for awhile now without diagnosing anything because of how difficult the repair process seemed to be. So you can imagine the multitude of viruses, adware, and trojans that have built up.

Recently I tried playing Bioshock and the game crashed during the first loading screen after I invested 15 minutes into beating the first level without saving... Tried again and I crashed at the same spot. So I tried Left 4 Dead 2 and I crashed trying to connect to a game. Tried Fallout 3 and crashed shortly after the character creation menu... BTW, java games like plants vs zombies and Creeper World are working fine, its just those 60 dollar real games that won't work.

So I finally give in and go all out to fix all of my problems. I bought Spydoctor, ran it and cleaned out my hard drive, in fact I am running the file scanner right again with updated definitions, but its been an hour and its at 8%.... I updated my motherboards bios which finally allowed me to run chkdsk and defragment. Full scans of both completed, and now aside from the file scanner and a possibly slightly out of date windows update I've run all the diagnostics I can think of.

Everything else is working fine, but my games still aren't working last I checked. I am working on those last two diagnostics I mentioned, but what else can I do.

A:Cant play games [moved from Gaming forum, see post#14]

Before anyone says anything

1) Yes my system is up to spec, its an old game and a computer capable of running new games im pretty sure.

2) Restarted almost a dozen times now for all the updates and diagnostics i've done so far.

3) No mods

4) I made a point of closing everything before each play test.

5) Direct X is up to date, DX11

6) Updated sound and video drivers about a month, maybe 2 months ago at most.

7) Fallout 3 is currently my main test game and I installed the patch for v1.7 and the stupid Microsoft Games for Windows program that the patch requires...

8) The fact that I get into the game and I have the same problem with other games should rule cd scratches out.

9) The first time I encountered the problem, it was with no patches on Fallout3 and I encountered the problem while the install was still fresh, meaning I didn't screw anything up since I installed the game. I already reinstalled it and immediately installed the patch and encountered the same problem.

BTW yes this is still a problem for all games, Fallout 3 is just the game I run into the problem the quickest on so I am using it as a test subject.

My laptop turns off when it is moved or the desk it is sitting on is joulted. This occurs when the laptop is plugged in with the battery in, when it is plugged in without the battery in and when it is running off the battery alone. After the laptop has turned off it will not turn on again unless it is shaken or pressed firmly between the touchpad and the spacebar. I assume this may indicate a loose connection in this area?  I'm very unsure where to go next with this but I am very scared to use my laptop through fear of it turning off and me loosing what I am working on. Any suggestions?

Hi everyone,
I own a HP pavilion a1240n
Mobo goldfish3
socket 775
Recently when I switched on PC the os would not boot up.
I checked PSU, the -5v was not working so I installed new one.
I am still having same issue, all fans are coming on.
Another point is that the led behind the power switch is not coming on.
I am sure there is issue with MOBO but is there a way of checking it without having to replace it, I presume I will have to replace OS if I have to get a new board.
I am based in Ireland so there will be time differance lag between answers

So I'm trying to fix my barber's laptop for a free haircut. The problem he's having is that when it would POST it would be very small on the screen and then the next screen would have certain characters misplaced or incorrect in the wording. Then it would start loading Windows XP and stop halfway with the screen going blank with weird lines flashing on the screen (like an old-fashioned movie). It would boot into Safe mode though. It's happened in the past as well and I fixed it by uninstalling the NVIDA display drivers and then reinstalling them, odd fix for the situation I know but it did work.

Anyways same thing happened, small splash screen then a weird POST till it would just not finish loading Windows. I got in with Safe Mode and backed up all the data and the registry. Then I uninstalled the NVIDA display drivers again and rebooted. Now I get nothing out of it. The backlights start up and all the LEDs and fans start up but the screen is totally blank and it doesn't try to shut itself off. Taping the on/off button makes it shutdown, no need to hold it. It's just doing nothing. Would resetting CMOS perhaps fix this? I've tried taking out the main battery and putting it back in, as well as all the sticks of RAM. No luck so far, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I got a laptop from a friend recently. Its an HP pavilion dv6500. They tripped over a USB cord and it fell on the ground and wouldn't turn on. They then took it to a local repair shop who told them they needed a new mobo. They put the new mobo in and still had the same problem. When you push the power button all the lights along the dash come on, and the fan and cdrom start up but no beeps and then it just like stalls out. the screen stays black, no ext video nothing, but the lights stay on. I have tested most of the components and all work, everything leads to the motherboard but that was replaced. any advice is greatly appreciated.

Have had this HP Pavilion smartouch 21 in storage as a spare for a couple years.  Now I need it and it won't come on.Power indicator lights. Drive seems to spin up.  Remove ram and it gives 4 beeps.  Nothing on screen totally dark.  Reseated video cable and hard drive.  No go.  Where next?

A:Pavilion smartouch 21 no post no boot out of box

@kirsplash, welcome to the forum. It is never a good idea to let any electronic device set unused for a long period of time.  I suggest checking to make certain that all of the components are seated properly.  Remove the video card and clean the contacts on the card and in the slot.  If the computer has any moisture inside these can be corroded.  Also, check the contacts on the memory.  Be extremely careful when cleaning the contacts.  Any ESD will damage them.

HI Gang,
I have a Pavilion zd7140us laptop. When I turn it on leds light up but that is it. No video. I tried an external monitor but still not video. I stripped down the laptop to motherboard, memory, cpu with fans. Still same issue. I inserted a post code card into the mini PCI slot. When powering up the cpu fans run and leds lite. I get the code on the post card "8180" nothing else. I have a second post code card that plugs into the printer port along with the USB port. I boot up with this card in and at first I get "--00". Then when I press the button on the card to view the next code it is "0100" with the "01" flashing. That is it.
I have already itried installing a used CPU (ebay).
Can any help me as to reading the code or where to go from here to troubleshoot the laptop?

Hey, guys!
I have a problem with my HP Pavilion dv2025nr laptop. It is almost year and a half old and recently I noticed that it wouldn't boot up at all. It has done that before, intermittently, but it would finally boot after 3-4 resets from the power switch, like it needed to get warmed up. After last night, now it seems totally dead. And I take good care of it.

The boot looks like this:
The screen is totally black, fans are on, HDD seems to be on(?), all the indicators on top are on, no beeps occur, HDD indicator blinks 3 times(5-6 times if media present in the DVD drive), DVD-drive spins up (if disc inside).

Here's what I've tried so far:
- connecting to external monitor - no success
- battery check - tried to boot with or without it. no change.
- power supply - strange, but computer turns on by itself when I plug in the charger. I think that's not normal.
- HDD check - HDD works fine, I was able to back it up.
- DVD-drive check - read/write indicator blinks the same way and at the same time with the HDD indicator. If a disc is inserted, the blinks are five or six.

An interesting fact is that the computer behaves the same way with the RAM modules and HDD taken out of it(!!). That freaked me out! Indicators blink he same way, no beeps or noises. Nothing.
I've no idea what the problem is.

I highly appreciate your help and concern!
Thank you!

The motherboard/CPU is probably bad. It may be time to take it in for repair

I've got another head scratcher I need a little assistance with. I have this HP pavilion a1000 in my shop. At first the computer wouldn't even turn on. I replaced the psu on it with one i know is good first and that made the fans come on but not the power led light. There was no video or beeps at this point. Next I tried to reset the bios. This computer has 2 jumpers? Is that normal? Anyway I moved both jumpers over to reset the bios and I also removed the cmos battery. Started the computer once, unplugged it to turn it off because the power button would not turn it off. Moved the jumpers back and replaced the cmos battery. Turned the machine back on and it had signs that it wanted to live. I got a memory error beep code which was one short beep followed by one long beep. I replaced the memory it had with memory i know is good and that took care of the beeps. Not only did that stop the beeping but now i have a power led and the cd drive is functional and I can turn off the computer by the power button. However, I still have no post or video at all. I thought the on board video may be bad. So i substituted a video card in that i know is good, but it did not change the video issue. I need a little help. What do I need to try next? Is is salvageable?
The motherboard looks clean, no flaws on it, a little dust here and there but i blew that off with canned air.
I would try a cpu swap but i dont have one to substitute. Is there another way to test the cpu?

A:HP Pavilion a1000 doesnt post

The fact that you had to change the PSU tells me there may have been a major problem. If the memory is bad and he video may be bad, I would suggest that a power problem has fried the whole system. The only way around is to test every component. if you do not have a spare CPU do you have a spare mobo that the CPU will fit into?

Hey Everybody.

I have an HP OMNIBOOK 4150B. I installed Win XP pro and it ran great. Fixed a bunch of things actually. I lost some minor functionality but that wasn't a big deal. The problem was that when I booted up the computer without it being plugged in(AC), it would freeze up after 30 seconds or so. So basically my laptop became a very portable desktop.

I reinstalled the recovery CD (win 98) and it solved the problem. However, I would really like to run XP with my OMNIBOOK....there must be a way to do it.

I was just wondering if anyone else was experiencing this problem or if anyone knew how to fix it.

Anyone know where to get all the drivers?

Hello! I still have my Omnibook XE3 GC, and i am currently using it for my retro games! I would also like to use it  for some simple MS Office tasks, by dual booting WinXp(Currently using Win98SE). So i thought that an upgrade is needed to make my old dinosaur a bit faster! I already got my self two 256mb dimms of ram, and i want to also upgrade my CPU. It currently has a Pentium III 850Mhz. Does anyone know if the board is going to support any faster Pentium III's?They are pretty cheap. I found a tualatin PIII 1.067Ghz on ebay for about 3Euros.Thanks in advance!

A:Omnibook XE3 Upgrade?

The Manuals for that classic machine were long ago retired here. 512 megs of RAM is going to be light on XP. I do seem to recall that the XE3/Pavilion N5400 could accept up to a PIII Mobile up to about 1.3 ghz.

I'm working on an old HP omnibook xe2 that had been stored for a couple years. CMOS battery was dead, so no operating system. Have changed battery. Laptop will power up and checks drives, but will not boot from either floppy or CD-rom drive. Tried to access BIOS setup menu-computer says"entering setup" then stalls. Where do I go from here?

I have an older HP OmniBook 2000CT with Windows 98 build 4.10.1998 with a Pentium I 133Mhz MMX processor and 32 Mb of RAM. When I insert a CD into the swappable Toshiba XM-2402B CD-ROM drive ("HP F1347A 10x CD-ROM Drive Module") nothing happens. The drive has power and reads the disk, and displays a list of files in windows explorer/my computer and I can browse through the folders. However, when I try to open/run a file, i cant. It either says "handle invalid" or a like message. If you have any idea of how to fix this or where to get a new drive, please tell me.

I'm Upagainstthewal (one L). Huge problem. I'm locked out of my HP Omnibook 6000 by a BIOS Password that I didn't even set. I have no clue on what it is or how to retrieve it? Is there a bypass or master password for this. I know that the provider is Phoenix. Can anyone lend a hand in assisting me with this issue?

Hi there,

Google 'CMOS password reset' take your pick. Have used one of these in the past, can't remember which, find one that suits. Often resets to no password...

hi from SA

PS failing that I have heard that taking the bios battery out for a few hours can reset to no password. either way double check whilst googling... plenty of similar events... good luck

I have an Hp Omnibook XE2 with only 5 GB of HDD and 64 Mb of RAM, Win 98 SE operating system. On my desktop I use Win XP Pro, and would like to move on to Win XP on my notebook too, preferably without buying a new notebook.

I intend to install maximum RAM (512 Mb) and a Hitachi Travelstar 7K60 HDD. Can anyone advise me if it is worth the effort to upgrade. I would only use Ms Office 2003 applications.

A:Upgrading Hp Omnibook XE2

I've run XP on sub 1Ghz computers before and although it is more stable, it will take a big preformance hit. Just before you dig into it, consider the cost. You can buy a new laptop from Wally World for under $500 when they are overstocked.

First off, are they enabled in the BIOS?

That's a pretty old machine, HP may not offer XP drivers for it. Perhaps you'd be better off running the version of Windows it came with.

I have a HP omnibook Xe2 laptop, yes it is old but it still has some kick to it. I originally replaced the fan because it became too noisy and made a pulsating sound after the laptop had been on enough time for the fan to kick on for a cooling cycle. I now have replaced the fan 3 times. In the beginning, the replacement fans work great, then they begin to make the same pulsating loud vibrating noise. The power cord of the fan is not a variable, it is out of the way. Any help would be great...

I had thought that maybe there is an electrical/power problem with the cord supplying the fan with power. Maybe there is too much power being sent to the fan and is frying the fan making it sound all loud and pulsate. But who knows...

What fans are you using? Are they the correct voltage? Are they good fans, i.e. ball bearing?

I have an HP OmniBook XE3 that has a BIOS password issue.

Windows Xp Home
Intel Celeron 1.2 GHz
256MB Ram

I wanted to go into my BIOS to disable my notebooks CD rom. I hit the F2 key and when it loads it asks for a password. I have tried to call the guy I bought it from to see if he knows what the password was and he tells me that he forgot what it was.

Does anyone know how to reset the bios password for an HP OmniBook Laptop? I have tried to enter a few of the &#8220;backdoor&#8221; password for the Phoenix BIOS. I have not found any useful information on what I can do to fix this issue and that is why I came here.

Anyone have any ideas?

The following concerns an HP Omnibook XE3 GF Notebook, running Windows
XP Pro.

Occasionally the screen blanks (completely black) as though the
machine were in standby mode. This may happen soon after booting or
after several hour's use. It may happen more than once on one day, or
maybe it doesn't happen for a couple of weeks.

After power-switch off, or hardware-reset, to shut down the machine,
the standby button re-boots it, but the display is _not_ restored.

However, the display _can_ be restored by: power-switch off, unplug
the power cord, remove the battery, wait a couple of minutes, replace
battery and power cord, press standby button to re-boot.

Having removed/replaced the battery, following a screen blank, Windows
insists on performing a consistency check on the FAT32 hard drive, at
next boot. The last time this happened two errors were found:

Windows will now check the disk.
Volume Serial Number is 2C77-3ED5
\WINDOWS\Prefetch\LOGONUI.EXE-0AF22957.pf first allocation unit is
not valid. The entry will be truncated.
\WINDOWS\Prefetch\NTOSBOOT-B00DFAAD.pf first allocation unit is
not valid. The entry will be truncated.
Convert lost chains to files (Y/N)? Yes
336 KB in 2 recovered files.
Windows has made corrections to the file system.

If the screen did not blank, removing/replacing the battery doesn't
cause Windows to perform the hard drive check, at next boot.

I should be grateful for advice as to

why the screen blanks,
