I need instructions about how to get the computer to boot from a CD/DVD, so I can test a Backup Recover DVD that I just created. I use Esc and the function-key to reach the Startup Boot Menu, but which option will allow boot from DVD?Error messages, if any: NONEAny changes made to your system before the issue occurred: NONE
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.)
Does HP have any remote control app which canbe used to control volume etc.. for HP Pavilion 27-a010
If you are talking about using your phone as a remote control, then there are several apps for Android or Apple products that allow you to do this. Just search the app stores for PC and remote... you'll need to install the app on your phone and software on your PC from the app manufacturer's web site. I think Google has a remote desktop app if youhave android.Read other 1 answers

Hello. My new (1) month old computer has no power. It's a tower but has a power supply on the cord like a laptop.90W 19.5V.My multimeter says it is only putting out 16 volts.Computer does nothing. Would a 3.5 volt drop in this power cause this?HP support only open 9-5 M-F and it's Sat night.Seems like such a small power supply for even the little tower this is.Can I get this under warranty?Thanks for your time.RobertRead other answers
I am wishing to upgrade the hard drive in my new Envy AIO since it came with only a 5400rpm drive to a hybrid 7200rpm. I have read from previous posts that it is difficult due to the location of the drive sitting behind the curved monitor and to access it you have to remove it. I also have watched a video on someone doing this but they didn't mention how they were able to over come the strong adhesive that attaches the bevel to the monitor without breaking the screen. Is there a documented way to remove the bevel without force? This seems to be a poor engineering design for hard drive replacement or upgrades as well as memory grades where you have to go a step furhter and remove the motherboard since the RAm is located on the back side with no access. I am a computer engineer and very hardware savy and am very concerned about opening up the system to upgrade the hard drive. Any suggestions for removing the bevel safely would be greatly appreciated.Read other answers
I opened up my case but there doesnt seem to be a place to install a new GPU. I have integrated graphics, but they're not exactly great. Was wondering if I'm just missing something or if I truly just can't upgrade.
Hi: I agree with you. I took a look at the motherboard illustration, and I do not see any kind of expansion slots available for add on graphics, or any other PCIe card. The only upgrades that can be done appear to be to increase the memory if you don't already have 2 x 8 GB installed.Read other 1 answers

HP Pavilion 6355 has the following issues:

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.

My HP won't boot properly. I have checked the harddisk and done a new windows installation on the HDD. So the HDD and windows are ok.
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:
REGISTRY WARNING :
The details that follow require an above-average understanding of the technical topics involved. If you do not understand the Registry material presented here, either find a technically knowledgeable friend or do not attempt to repair your system Registry yourself.

I need to reinstall Windows XP on my laptop. I have an external DVD and the recovery Disk. I already changed the boot order to boot from CD. But I am still unable to boot from CD. The external is working fine and the CD is O.K
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.
Hi I have a HP Pavilion laptop with AMD processor and Windows Vista. I want to reinstall Windows Vista but I can not get it to boot from CD.

Hi, my PC HP Pavilion Slimline S3620la does not boot from usb. I can not choose the USB option in the setup (does not appear). The USB device does not appears in the boot option post bios (pressing ESC) too. I need boot from USB. Please Help me Thanks
1. Check if the USB device is really bootable, you can do that by checking the files on the root location or by trying to boot another computer using it.2. 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.Read other 2 answers

I have the following problem with my HP Pavilion m7570n. When I turn the system on if gives the following message: File is missing or corrupt
\windows\system32\config\system. Is there any way to fix this problem without using the HP restore from the partition? If I do have to do the restore from the partition, will I lose the photographs and emails on the computer? Thanks for any assistance?
Try this first -
If that does not work then do a repair XP install (not the HP restore)
I am pretty sure the HP restore partition will wipe everything out and put it back to factory fresh.
My computer will not boot. The power supply light in the back turns on. Fans turn on. CD-ROM functions. No USB power and no LED light on the front. It does not come on at all when the computer turns on. When I turn on the power, I hear nothing but the fans, the screen is blank and keyboard and mouse have no lights. I have tested the monitor, keyboard and mouse and they are functioning. I think it could be the BIOS or either a motherboard problem. I need some help to narrow down the problem.

Hello! So, when I boot up my computer, it won't display anything. Instead, it makes a whirring fan sound that gradually gets more intense (though, strangely enough, when not hooked up to the monitor the whirring stays at a consistent volume). I removed the cover and turned it on and both fans (the one over the heat sink and the one that blows out the back) are both spinning. I recently had someone clean the dust out of it and he removed the fan from the heatsink, but when he was putting it back on the screws on all four corners wouldn't fit in at the same time, so only two are screwed in. Could that be something...? And the light for the power button doesn't light up either...Any help is appreciated!Read other answers
