Hi,
I have a HP Pavillion running windows 7, It didn't come with Set-up/Recovery Discs.
On starting, it either goes to BSOD, File Checking or Memory Dumping Routines.
I've tried sorting it out myself but I'm :deadhorse:
Any asslstance to get this thing going again would be great.
Thanks,
True Mercury. :busy:

Hello True Mercury,

1. ) What is the model number of your HP Pavilion computer?

2. ) What was "new" just before this problem started (i.e. new hardware, software, malware, error messages)?

3. ) Start the computer and begin to repeatedly tap the F8 key. If successful, the Advanced Boot Options menu appears.

  • Arrow down to "Last Know Good Configuration....," press <Enter>, and reboot. If no success, continue below.
  • From the Advanced Boot Options menu, select Safe Mode.
  • If Safe Mode works, then perform a System Restore to before the problem started.
4. ) If no success with above, then run the built-in HP Diagnostics to test hardware.

  • Start the computer and immediately start tapping the F2 key to bring up HP Advanced System Diagnostics.
  • Test hard drive, then Memory. Please report any errors.

Regards,
Brooks

Hi Artrooks,
1) I'm running a HP Pavillion dv6
2) I've been installing and uninstalling a couple programs including a Flight Simulator Clone and also Teamviewer.

I'll be trying the suggestions you've sent and I'll be in contact later regarding the results.

Thanks,
True Mercury. :busy:

Well it seems to be sorted now.
I did a system restore to a date (about a month ago) and all looks good.
Thanks for the advice Artrooks :clapping: :thumbsup:
