Q: HP Pavilion won't boot - no video

Hello:

I am hoping to get an HP Pavilion 540N computer working for a friend. I have no software, recovery disks etc. and the computer won't boot. I see that the harddrive light flickers initially; but, that is it. There is no attempt to access the cd drive or floppy drive. The monitor displays nothing at all. The monitor is good since I hooked it to another computer and it worked fine. The computer had Windows XP loaded. Any suggestions as to where to start? Thank you in advance.

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.)

5 May 2017 I purchased HP Pavilion 360 with Core i3-7100U CPU Processor & 500GB HDD.  But when I watch video online on youtube and news channel, I find video quality is very very poor. Not clear, no HD & sharf video. Even some pictures appear very dull. I am very very frustrated because of that. This is a costly Laptop. Imagine if you can not enjoy a sharp or HD Video in today's life how you may feel. Even some high resolution PICS are not as sharp as it appears on other Laptop. I am very dissatisfied beause of this. I do not know what to do about this. Totaly unhappy. Thanks & RegardsPraamod

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.

I have installed a different vid card and that doesnt seem to solve it either....changed the ram and still no joy!
I think the board itself is dead but just want to know if anyone else had any idea's to try?
I do get a series of beep codes at times when trying to boot it up
3 beeps then a space then 3 more
also the power switch doesnt shut the system down at all unless u hold it in and when u release it it starts up again

thanks in advance for any ideas

Hi grybeard22!

Here are the closest related beep codes that you have stated.
You stated only a 3-3. If its constantly beeping 3 times with a pause. I would go with the 3-3-3-3.

3-3-1-1
A0h
Set time of day
Troubleshoot the motherboard.

3-3-1-3
A2h
Check key lock
Unlock the key lock, if it is locked.
Investigate possible problem with the key lock switch, if it is either unlocked already or not present on your system case.
Troubleshoot the motherboard.

3-3-3-1
A8h
Erase F2 prompt
Troubleshoot the video card.
Troubleshoot the motherboard.

3-3-3-3
Aah
Scan for F2 key stroke
Troubleshoot the motherboard.

Double check the beep codes if by chance its one of these codes. It looks like a bad system board.

Any other questions post back in this thread!
Good luck!

I have a HP Pavilion XT983 with a AMD processor. Recently the video stop working(black screen on monitor), I try a new monitor and it still will not work and I hooked another computer to the HP monitor and the computer work so I know I narrowed it down to the video card or the motherboard. So I bought a PCI video card from Wal-Mart put it in the HP computer and hook the monitor up the PCI video card and still no video just a black screen. So next I thought it could be the motherboard so I bought a new motherboard off of ebay the buyer said it worked so I put the AMD processor out of my old computer into the motherboard I bought off of ebay and hook everything back up, still no video. The motherboard I bought off of ebay had a AGP slot so next I bought a AGP video card off ebay , put the AGP card in the motherboard I bought off of ebay and still no video. I donít know what else to do, so I am open for suggestion I really want to get this computer working so if anyone can help me please write me back.

Hello,

I am looking for suggestions for video cards for an HP 501n Pavilion PC. It has an on-board video card now that uses up to 11 mb of the installed RAM. I would like to upgrade to at least a 16mb card. I don't do much gaming but I have run across some applications that are requiring more video memory. I tried unsuccessfully to upgrade to a 16mb ATI Expert 128 card several months ago and it just did not seem to work. It would recognize the card but then it would not continue to use it correctly and the display was horrible. From my research at that time, I should be able to install and use another video card (HP says so and I have seen threads about it) but I would like to know if anyone has any recommendations that they have gotten to work in situations similar to mine? Thanks.

System has:
256 MB RAM
Win XP Home OS

I was curious if you guys could update the driver for "HP Pavilion 15-au030wm" because 4454 is outdated and doesn't support new games that are a bit intensive. I'm asking this because Intel's driver, 4542 causes IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL blue screens of death occasionally, I'm using the beta driver before that version hoping it resolves that blue screen of death. Thnaks for your help, I just would like a more updated video driver. -Kevin P.

A:Video Driver for HP Pavilion 15-au030wm

This is not a direct line to the HP software engineers responsible for writing drivers. Your laptop is pretty new so there is a chance HP will post new drivers for the Intel 520 video at some point but there is usually a couple month lag between when Intel releases new drivers and HP makes a new driver based on that Intel upgrade.  I would stay away from Beta Intel drivers. You are always best off using the latest posted HP driver. The Intel 520 video is not going to handle anything very "intensive" and drivers are perhaps not the problem here.

I want to upgrade the video of my HP Pavilion a6257c Desktop so that it will support an HDMI connection and streaming video to my hi def home theater monitor. The unit has an integrated video processor (Intel 950) but the product specifications indicate that the motherboard (P5LP-LE (Leonite2) a/k/a ASUS P5LP-LE) will support a PCI Express x16 graphics card.     I do not need a super upgrade video card for gaming- only for streaming video and HDMI connection but I am confused as to what expansion card to get and what elements need to be considered (e.g. I understand power supply is an issue but the product specifications for both the computer and the motherboard do not give that information.    Sooooooo your advice is solicited on the following: What video cards would you suggest that will fulfill my objectives?What considerations I need to satisfy before purchasing?Any issues I will have to address to complete the upgrade (e.g. Do I have to disable the integrated card, if so how?Is there any other advice you think I need to know?  Your time in considering and responding to my issue is greatly appreciated. George Ellis

I have a a350n HP Pavilion (OEM until last month) I upgraded the video card to (If I can remember correctly) an nVidia 5500 card. I was experiencing random reboots, so I went out and replaced the power supply from a 250W to a 430W. It still kept rebooting. I returned the nVidia card and now have an ATI Radeon 9550; same problem, keeps rebooting. I updated to the lastest Intel Chipset and upgraded to the lastest and only update for the BIOS. I turned off the automatic restart option in Windows so I now get the blue screen of death. When the computer restarts and I send the error report MS cannot determine the dirrect cause of the problem but recomends it may be a driver issue. The big problem now is I downgraded to an old PCI video card to make sure it is not the 256mg Video card. Same issues. Anyone know, does it sound like I need a new motherboard? I cannot think of anything else but I would hate to replace the board and find out its not the problem, 'cause I have to order it from HP.

A:Video card for HP Pavilion a1110n

alexmolinavr6 welcome to the Seven Forums.

The reason you can't enable Aero is due to the age of the onboard graphics (Intel 845G) is that it physically doesn't have the necessary hardware support for Aero. Now for the full specs on that HP of yours,

HP Pavilion a1110n Desktop PC Product Specifications HP Pavilion a1110n Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

and the motherboard in it,

Motherboard Specifications, P4GV-LA (Guppy) HP Pavilion a1110n Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

It only has PCI slots which severely limits what can go in it. Personally I wold live without Aero for now until you get a new computer that is fully Windows 7 compatible, but if you have to have Aero I wouldn't go for anything more or less than one of these (more costs to much and less doesn't have the support),

So, I have an HP Pavilion g7-1075dx Notebook with Windows 7. I'm an avid gamer and wish to play the newest games. However, there's one problem thats keeping me from doing so. Alot of the newer games require newer video/graphics cards. This particular laptop has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250. The newest games seem to require ATI Radeon HD 4850 and above. This is the only thing thats keeping me from playing games like Starcraft II on the highest settings OR in the case of Star Wars: The Old Republic, it almost keeps me from playing the game, period, due to the graphics being too much for my current card to handle, causing massive lag. I was hoping I could change the video card. Upgrade. However, i've heard that with most laptops or notebooks you can't upgrade anything other than the RAM. I'm hoping anyone on here can help me out and tell me if it is possible to get a new video card for my laptop. We don't have a desktop computer so this laptop is my only hope for a long time to play newer PC games.

I have HP Pavilion M9515Y bought "off the shelf" with integrated graphics. Seems the cooling doesn't work now. After the system is up for about 20 minutes, I can hear the fans start to surge, then the monitor shuts off.

I'm hoping a semi-cheap video add in card with roughly the same or a bit better performance would bypass the issue. The only card I've added to the system is an SIIG USB 3.0 card

I have an old CRT monitor that I share between 2 PCs using a kvma switch. So if the card has an SVGA connector that would be even better.

I have tried to install both a GeForce2 MX 400 and a GeForce FX 5200 PCI card in my HP Pavilion 8755c. Onboard video has been disabled. I get memory dump blue screens and/or intermittent restarting. I am also unable to boot into safe mode. I have heard that the motherboard just can't handle it. Is this true? Any suggestions?

Also, is HP memory proprietary. I have tried to add more RAM fitting the specs, but the system appears to reject this too.

A:HP Pavilion 8755c & GeForce Video Problems

Probably not the motherboard, but rather, the power supply. HP and other manufacturers use weak, cheap power supplies in their systems that are barely enough to run the system they come with....everything you put in the computer needs power, and video cards take a lot of power...the power supply in your system is probably too weak to power everything at once. The only solution to this would be to get a better power supply, but chances are, you won't be able to find one that will fit in the HP case, since they use very small power supplies...

With the memory, I've never heard of HP using proprietary memory, are you sure you got the right kind? If it has PC100 memory in there already, make sure you get PC100, if it has PC133, then get PC133. Also, try booting it with just the new stick, it could also be the power supply again, not having enough power for both sticks.

Hi everyone, We recently were given a Pavilion h8-1260t and got all excited and ran out and bought a Geforce 970... found out through a bunch of reading that we can't use it because we can't update our BIOS. So... because it comes up in so many places, I figured I'd "go to the source" and ask here: What's the "best" video card we can actually run? We have installed a 500W PSU. Not sure if I'm providing enough details, so please let me know. Thanks,Andrew

My cousin formatted her computer and has broght it to me because her colors are messed up. The computer is a HP Pavilion Model 6346, she no longer has the restore disks that came with the unit and has formatted the uniot and re-installed win 98. It seems to working just fine, I am using it right now. The only problem is the video, it only gives you a choice of 2 or 16 colors. I know it is on-board video and I need the driver but under system properties it is showing that the standard pci driver is loaded. I cannot find which display adapter she has. My comp is a HP and I have sis adapter, I opened the unit and looked inside but cannot find any info. please help!!!

Hi, Look here  or here at HP Partsurfer for video cards that are used in the newer Slimline models with a 220 watt power supply.  These cards were manufactured specially for HP Slimline PCs with 220 watt power supplies. The HD 7450 wombat looks pretty good.
