Desktop will not boot. (hp pavilion p7-1000c)

purchased refurbished desktop. It will not boot up.  error: no boot disk has been detected or disk has failed.

Is the hard disk recognized in the BIOS and are you able to perform hard disk diagnostics.  Perhaps you should speak to wherever you purchased the computer.  Were you supplied with recovery disks?

  • HP m9300t desktop will not boot

    Hoping someone can help me out here.  I think my motherboard is shot but would appreciate some second opinions.  My HP m9300t desktop will not boot past the initial "HP Invent" blue splash screen.  On this screen, I have the options to enter Setup, Boot Menu, Recovery, or Diagnostics.  Normally, this screen will display for a few seconds then the PC will start to boot into Windows but that's not happening anymore.  Instead, it just hangs on the "HP Invent" screen.  If I attempt to enter Boot Menu, Recovery, or Diagnostics, nothing happens.  If I attempt to enter Setup, it will display a message saying "entering Setup" but the computer just hangs there and never does enter Setup.  I hear my fans spinning, I *think* I hear at least one of the hard drives spin up (I have two in the system), the blu-ray drive activity light blinks as it normally does when I turn the system on, but again, system will not boot past the HP splash screen.  I have tried booting from the Windows cd (no luck) as well as attempted to boot with all peripherals disconnected except keyboard and mouse and again, no luck.  I have noticed that the past two days the system has behaved somewhat erratically, locking up two times requiring a reboot but I just chalked that up to general Windows instability and/or my installing of some new beta software for a HDHomeRun cablecard tuner I just installed.  Looking back though, maybe those were some warning signs that my motherboard was on the brink of dying.  In any case, what I am thinking now is that the motherboard needs to be replaced but before I go out and buy a new one, I wanted to get other people's opinions in case I am overlooking something.  Thanks for any help that you can offer.

    Marty, welcome to the forum.
    Since the computer is over 3 years old, I believe that you have a failed power supply unit (PSU).  Here is a guide to help you troubleshoot the problem.

  • HP Pavilion 500 (desktop) will not boot after updating driver's.

    Working on my mothers CPU but I cant seem to get past this screen now
    This was after I had downloaded and installed drivers from this site. I cant seem to figure out why it is not going in to windows xp. Any ideas? It also was giving me a fan error which was easy to fix but cant seem to figure this out.

  • Windows 8 and Canvio Desk 3TB: System will not boot when external hdd is connected
    just recently upgraded to Win Pro on my HP PAVILION A6109N.  I also bought a toshiba canvio desk 3TB.  What I notice is that if I reboot my pc with the extermnal HDD connected, my system will not boot.
    I have check my BIOS boot settings and the order of the boot.
    I have tried disabling USB Legacy Support in the BIOS
    I have reformatted the external HDD
    but still my desktop will not boot if the external HDD is connected....If I disconnect the external HDD...the system will boot up ....
    I am at a loss....*** scratching my head ***

    Update:  The only solution for me was to format the drive as ext3 and plug it into one of my Asus RT-N66U USB ports, as most routers don’t yet recognize 3TB drives as NTFS.  It’s not much help to people who don’t have a router with this capability, and it also slows transfer rates to ~12MB/s.
    Given the short length of the cable, your only other options are to have the 3TB Canvio sitting right next to you so you can unplug from a front USB port before each boot, or place it towards the rear of your desk and crawl under the desk to disconnect it from your PC prior to each boot. 
    It's a pity because Toshiba produce great internal HDD's, but my experience when it comes to external drives is they're simply junk.  I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing.

  • My Mac will not boot up!!!

    Hi! My iMac 10.7.5 desktop will not boot up, I just get a white screen after the apple logo.
    It will only start in safe mode. Will not go into recovery mode either. I just get a white screen.
    I have tried:
      Removing all cables and trying to start in recovery mode.
      Resetting the PRAM
    I have not been able to do the "repair disk" because it is not available in safe mode, and cannot open recovery mode! 
    CAN ANYBODY HELP ME PLEASE??????? I don't know what to do now. Thanks

    Also depends on what you mean, what the red lights inside are showing, whether it is bad system drive, video card, SMC, whether you can get into Mountain Lion Recovery or not. And whether you hear the chime, it powers on or not.
    Unplug everything. No power or USB connected.
    Remove all the drives and see if you get the "?" on startup.
    If you had made a clone of your system and have that 'sittin on shelf' now is the time to use it.
    Hit power button for 10 seconds. Wait a minute. Reconnect bare basics (power, video, kb/mouse)

  • HP Pavilion Elite m9258 will not boot up. Won't recognise USB ports -mouse keys etc

    HP Pavilion Elite M9258
    70 percent of the time will not boot up.
    Computet light is on. DVD drive will open and shut. Fans sound slightly quieter when this happens.
    The monitor comes on but the light goes to  orange. When I press any of the monitor buttons, it flashes a message for a few seconds telling me it is in sleep mode and invites me to move the mouse or press a key to continue
    The problem is that the USB ports are not recognised by the computer at this point. The infra red mouse light flashes briefly when the computer is switched on then goes and remains off. The keyboard is also unresponsive.
    The sole fix that  I can find is to repeatedly turn the computer off and on again. After 70 -100 attempts ( over 4 to 6 hours) it suddenly boots up normally. The problem began a year ago and is increasing in duration and severity.

The computer freezes then the keyboard and mouse will not respond and the only thing I can do is shut it down and even then I have to hold the pwer button about 10 sec before it shuts off! I have unplugged all external devices like you told avro500 to do and I did finally get it started but the computer still freezes and it is doing it more often as time goes by! I even paid HP support the $100 dollars (or around that amount) to fix it but it keep happening even after they worked on it but it was after the 7 days or what ever their policy is! They downloaded some security suites and ran their scans! They left Advanced system care, ccleaner and superantispyware on my computer and I was just wondering if they could be conflicting with my paid norton internet security? I have become very flustrated because first off I paid a lot of money for this computer and it's not even 2 years old yet and I also have paid HP a lot of money to fix it and all the guy from India could say to me was "I have been working on this computer and it hasn't froze up so the problem must be fixed!" Well it's not!! and I don't know enough to fix it myself so thats why I paid you a hundred dollars to do it for me! haha thanks for any help!

  • HP Pavilion a1467c will not boot

    Every time I try to start my Pavilion a1467c desktop the start button lights up, but the HDD light comes on yellow for about 30 seconds and then goes out. The display comes on with a blue screen with vertical white lines. The OS is Windows XP.  I suspect the power supply, but the fan on the power supplie runs. I am looking for advise from someone with more experience.

    OK. Let me answer my own question. Other than the blue screen with vertical white lines, the PC was acting like I have seen other PCs act on prior occasions. Upon starting up the computer, all goes well except it will not boot up and the HDD activity light goes out. Most of the time was related to a bad memory card. I opened up the case on the desktop, removed the three memory cards, cleaned the contacts on the memory cards, and reseated them in the slots. I then closed the case, plugged the power cord back in, pushed the start button, and the PC booted up like normal. I have rebooted it several times while updating drivers. It has been running for the past two days without a glitch. Simple fix.

  • Windows xp will not boot up after installation of desktop software 4.3.

    windows xp will not boot up after installation of desktop software 4.3.  Where do I start to get my p.c. going again ???

    I get the message that a recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
    The computer does not boot up in safe mode or last known good configuration.
    I'm glad you think the software has nothing to do with it, but perhaps you can also explain why this problem started as soon as I downloaded the desktop software and tried to restart the computer.

  • HP Pavilion Slimline s3707c PC will not boot up all the way

    HP Pavilion Slimline s3707c PC will not boot up all the way; gives the following message:
    Entering Setup
    <F10=setup>                          <F11=System Recovery
    <Esc=Boot Menu>                 <F9=Diagnostics>
    Tried to install recovery disc; did not respond.
    [Personal Information Removed]

    Hi wjackson95,
    When you get to the screen mentioned below, can you press the F11 key to enter the Recovery system that is on the hard drive? Alternatively, if you can press F10, you can go into the BIOS and change your boot order to put your disc drive before the hard drive so that the PC boots to your Recovery discs. NOTE: You may have to press F10 or F11 multiple times to get it at the right time.
    You might consider opening your PC to see if it has dust buildup. If your PC has overheated, it can cause it to not boot. It can also cause heat damage to the interal parts.

  • Pavilion tx 1000 will not boot up

    I was using my pavilion tx 1000 a few months ago and the screen suddenly started to fade to full white and this happened. My notebook will not boot up after powering on. The lights come on except for the wifi and mute button indicators. The fan starts and then stops after a few seconds. The screen remains blank. I took it to a family friend who changed my motherboard and it's been working for about a few weeks. The screen faded again like the first time two weeks ago but I left the computer alone and tried to turn it on again and it magically worked. Just today I tried to turn it on after what seemed to be normal use without any problems and the same boot up problems occurred. Does anyone have a solution or at least an explanation? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    I had a similar problem.  I finally got my HP tx 1220us to  boot at power up and also start automatically after reboot. All without replacing the motherboard.  It's been nearly two days now and the computer has been booting up without a problem. 
    I do not know what cleared up the problem.  I did try all of the solutions offered on the net such as:
    1. Removing the Norton Antivirus
    2. checking connection for ram, hard drive etc.
    3. Stopped the sleep/hibernation mode.
    Nothing worked.  HP suggested that I replace the motherboard at cost of $399. I could not accept this simple and easy solution, not yet.  Not until, someone could tell me which part of the motherboard was bad or at least get me the error codes from POST.
    I found out that one can buy for under $9, a simple display unit, which would tell you the POST error code and what the error was in the POST operations. However, this unit works only if you have a PCI slot or USB and Parallel printer port.  The Tx1220 does not have the PCI slot or the parallel printer port. Technically, one can buy a parallel to USB adapter for under $20. 
    I checked with Geek Squad.  They wanted $70 to run tests on the motherboard.  So I decided to do something else for a change.
    I took the following steps:
    First, I restored the Operating System as soon as I got the notebook to boot up.  The computer started booting up at first try and even restarted after Windows restarted the computer.
    Second, I also replaced the Norton Internet Security 60-day subscription installed automatically by HP by default to plain Symantec antivirus.
    (Note- Windows does not do a clean uninstall of NOrton Internet Security or the Antivirus program.  You will need the Norton removal tool from Symantec to do a better job.)
    Also, I later removed the symantec antivirus program and replaced with the free AVG program.
    Third, I disabled CLCApssvc.  (I believe this program controls the webcam- not sure what else it does.  You will see this program listed in the error message -windows event viewer). 
    Fourth, I also changed the screen resolution to low/medium settings,
    Fifth, I stopped the sleep and hibernation mode in the power settings. 
    I do not know what or which of the above actions actually cleared up the problem.  It is a mystery.
    I strongly believe that this is not a hardware problem rather a software problem.  Something happens in between after POST completes its process and the OS takes over.  I might be wrong but, either SAV or CLcapsvcs leave behind a conflicting set of instructions, which stops the boot up process to Windows.

  • My HP Pavilion zv6000 will not boot/recovery

    My HP Pavilion zv6000 will not boot/recovery need help

    Disconnect the AC Adapter and Battery from the unit. Hold the Power button down for about 15 seconds. Then without the battery being connected, plug in only the AC Adapter on the unit and check if this powers on the unit. You can also try to reseat the RAM on the unit. You can find the removal procedures on the Service and Maintance guide on for your model notebook. In case the notebook does not work after these steps, it could possibly be a hardware issue on the unit.

  • HP Pavilion 15-n268sa will not boot after windows update (windows 8.1)

    After a series of windows update (windows 8.1) my HP Pavilion 15-n268sa will not boot up, no fan noises, no lights no nothing. 
    I have tried a "hard reset" a number of times with no success. 
    When the battery is present the white LED flashes 3 times when the power button is pressed. 
    Please please help. 

    Hello Cuffy,
    Welcome to the HP Forums!
    I understand you notebook will not boot after a series of Windows updates.
    Can you tell me if you are able to access the HP Recovery Manager by repeatedly tapping the F11 key while the notebook turns on? If you can access this, try doing a system restore to before you installed the updates. If not I would suggest you go through this document: Computer Does Not Start and the LEDs Blink or the Computer Beeps.
    If it's the Caps Lock light that is blinking this document will tell you exactly what the error is (spoiler: 3 beeps is a memory failure). This could also explain the failed updates. The updates are stored in the RAM before being applied to the operating system.
    You can try reseating the RAM, or using only 1 of the RAM cards, as you have 2x4GB cards. If it still doesn't work with 1 card, try the other card to confirm it has failed.
    You can replace defective cards via HP Phone Support if covered under warranty or at the HP Part Store if not covered. You can contact HP Technical Support at 1-800-474-6836 in North America. For all other regions click here.
