I am getting ready to pull my last few hairs with this problem….. :thumbsup:

I have a HP desktop running windows xp (p4 2.4, 512MB Ram, 80GB HD) and when I power on the computer, it freezes on the HP logo screen. I sometimes can get into the BIOS, however, most of the time I cant even do that.

I decided to open the case and reset the cmos battery, pull memory, ect. and I was able to get the computer back up and running Windows. The computer ran perfect until the next morning when I went to turn it on. The problem was back.

I repeated the steps that I did before and it worked again, however, the problem came back again.

This computer just went out of warranty a few weeks ago and Hp will not help.

If you can help, please respond to this post. I would greatly appreciate any help that you may have to offer.

If it seems to clear up, even for the moment, I would buy a new CMOS battery. Have you tried running with one stick of RAM to see if you may have one bad RAM ?

Have you installed a new video card or RAM recently?

ok heres some news on my issue.

I had no problem turning on and off the computer for a while and then i unplugged the pc for about an hour or so. When I plugged it back in it would not start up normally (freezes on logo screen of hp) Then I pulled out the cmos battery and reset it and it worked, just as before.

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING!!!!! PLEASE HELp
