Can you give us a little more information, such as what version of windows do you have, and the make and model of the machine?

Thanks, OF

Most hp computers have a recovery partition and don't ship with any recovery discs. is there a way for you to borrow a XP home cd so that you can start the recovery console and run the system file checker utility?

The next option would be to do a repair install, again you would need the cd.

The final option would be to run the built in recovery program.

If you get the machine running here is the recovery disc info.

Check the other links that I gave you. your other option is to run system restore using the F10 key, and then to make your restore discs.

If you do this, do not use the advanced option


running the standard system restore can make it difficult to get to your files if you have any that you don't wish to lose.

FWIW, hp and compaq along with most computer manufacturers don't include recovery discs or the WinXP disk or Windows Vista disc. you must make your own set of restore discs.

Lets try this with the computer powered off, unplug. push and hold the power on switch for 30 seconds, and release. plug the computer back in, and start tapping the F10 key as soon as you see the HP logo on screen, as the machine starts, you should see the progress bar go from left to right, and come up to the first screen of system restore.

also, I know that this may sound stupid, Please make sure the keyboard and mouse are plugged in correctly, and that all pins are still in the connectors.

Let us know if this works.

it looks like you need the windows cd or the recovery discs from hp. any windows xp home disc should work to start the recovery console.

The recovery discs must be for the exact computer model. An example: Model A610n discs will not work with an A610fr computer. You should order a set of the discs from HP.
