HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV6500 Reboot Loop

Jan 13, 2010

I have a client that brought me their HP Pavilion DV6500 laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium edition) that seems to have a severe issue.

When you attempt to power it up the lights above the keyboard all light up and you can hear the hard-drive spin up but then it reboots itself and begins a continuous reboot cycle. Nothing at all appears on the screen ever. The DVD/CD drive spins up momentarily (indicated by the yellow LED) but powers off when the laptop reboots itself (as one would expect).

The only way to stop the continuous rebooting is to press & hold the ESC key; this prevents the computer from rebooting, the lights stay on, but nothing appears on the screen and the DVD/CD drive will not read the recovery disc(s).

I have taken the following trouble-shooting steps:

1) Unplugged the unit from AC power & removed the battery. I was sure to hold in the power button for 30 seconds to ensure the capacitors were properly drained. This reset did not fix the issue.

2) I reseated the RAM and switched the RAM sticks (there are two of them) in trying to determine if it is a RAM issue; no affect with this attempt either.

3) Have attempted to boot into SAFE-MODE many times with no luck.

HP/Compaq :: Reboot Loop

Mar 4, 2009

I'm running Vista 64 and one of my recent windows updates, for the .NET framework, is not able to complete (I don't think it completely downloaded), but when I boot up it keeps trying to complete installation then reboots the computer when it can't, in an endless loop.

What can I do? Does Vista have a 'Safe Mode' or something where I can bypass the normal boot up and be able to get on there to grab my few unbacked-up files, then reinstall Vista? Any other kind of temporary fix? I've been seeing a few weird things for the last couple of weeks so I want to do a clean reinstall no matter what at this point, but I REALLY need to grab a few super important files first.

HP/Compaq :: Dropped My Dv6500 SE

Jun 19, 2009

Dropped my computer and now it wont boot up. Instead it just keeps turning on and off. The screen is also cracked. HP tells me that the hard drive or motherboard have been shifted with the impact and are not being detected properly causing the power cycling. They are offering to fix it for $400. I would like to attempt to make the repairs myself, if possible.

HP/Compaq :: DV6500/Recently Opened To Clean Fan Now Screen Says On Lid Closed

Jan 2, 2009

I cleaned my over-1-year old DV6563 laptop since the heat sink was filled with dust inside. Anyways, I got everything back together, but unfortunally the inverter lamp on my monitor went dead (I got a replacement off Ebay and the monitor works again).

However I have a slight issue. Every time I close down the laptop lid, the screen stays on (it doesn't turn off the screen). I even set windows to go into stand-by when the lid is closed and it does not turn off the screen or go into stand-by (unless I press Fn+Sleep).

I even installed Windows XP to see if it was a Vista issue...however the problem still exists. I do have the lastest Nvidia drivers too.

HP/Compaq :: Dm1Brightness Level Set To Max After Reboot On XP

Feb 22, 2010

I tried to install XP SP2 on dm1 (su4100 version), already up and running now.

The problem was about screen brightness, it seem that xp cannot remember the last brightness level. Every time I rebooted, the screen brightness always set to max level.

I have tried to change Intel chipset and vga driver, but still nothing.
all the Fn + key button worked, even for brightness setting.

Tried installing latest QuickPlay driver, it get worst (it doesnot match with function, in dv6700 Fn+F7,F8 for setting brightness, in dm1 Fn+F3,F4)

The other issue was "pop" noise when windows is starting, but I already solved with some registry trick (which was posted in this forum)

I owned notebook with XP before, and the screen brightness always followed power scheme, if I change the scheme the brightness level will set to the last it was.

So, anyone have any suggestion regarding my brightness issue ?

If some how I can't solved this issue, Is there any 3rd party software for managing power scheme like in vista for XP ?

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 F.26a Firmware Recycles Power With Every Reboot

May 13, 2010

I flashed to f.24 with no problems before HP yanked it. Just now I flashed to f.26a, and now I'm noticing that with every soft reboot the laptop recycles power - power light goes off and back on, even doing a ctrl-alt-del on a DOS prompt!

I'm not 100% certain it was this way with f.24 as I haven't had the need to boot to DOS until now (just whacked the stock HP OS). But I sure don't remember the computer recycles power with every Windows reboot.. Is this how HP is fixing the wakeup and/or black screen problems that I never had?

This can't be very good for those who have a spinning platter hard drive - I got one myself I got the 160SSD+250HDD.

HP Dv6500 OS/Software :: Flash BIOS From OS Other Than Vista

Jul 24, 2014

I have a HP dv6500 running Windows 7 for which I want to upgrade the pci-e mini wifi card to one of the intel cards available on Newegg, or perhaps a 4G card. However, I have read that the stock HP BIOS has a whitelist for wifi cards, and only select cards will work.
 
I have located a modified F5A bios that I am willing to try: [URL] .....
 
I have also heard that flashing a BIOS from Windows 7 will damage it, and the recommended solution is to reinstall Windows Vista. Is there some way around this? Could I perhaps use a PE CD?

Dell :: Inspiron 1150 Looping The Loop

Jan 23, 2009

My Inspiron 1150 was in normal use last week. Next day I switched it on and it came up with the start screen, Dell, Inspiron 1150, the bar at the bottom screen fills with white as usual and in the top right of the screen it shows F2 setup and F12 boot menu.

Entering either of these does nothing and the whole thing goes round in an endless loop hence the title of the thread.

I have checked as far as I dare inside, checking the memory firmly inserted, battery is fine and the HDD looks OK though I don't have the gadget to check it like the old ones with 2 lines of pins.

Someone said it might be the CMOS battery but since the on-line manual doesn't show where it is, I can't replace it (even if that is the possible cause).

Lenovo Z510 P/Y/Z Series :: Black Screen Loop

Oct 31, 2014

i have a new Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 (i5 Full HD with Nvidia Graphic Card). I bought it on 7th October 2014 and everything was fine under Windows 8.1 N Pro x64. But today when i started my notebook, i had a black screen for a few seconds and then it stuck in a reboot loop.
 
1. i press the power button
2. black screen for a few seconds
3. reboot and back to step 2.
 
i tried already the lenovo button, but this results in the same problem as above. I also tried to boot into bios by pressing every F1...F12 key and also Fn+F1...F12 key. And last but not least i tried to boot from Disk (Windows 7 Home Premium 32 and 64-bit, Windows 8 x64, Windows 8.1 N Pro x64 and Debian latest stable) but it didn't work, too.

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 Stuck In Boot Loop

Sep 30, 2013

Recently I purchased a u410 and it has been running great for a few weeks but this morning instead of waking up from hibernation like normal it seems to be stuck in a loop of displaying the lenovo logo then a blank screen with a few seconds on each. This has been running continuously for hours while I try to run down battery in an attempt to reset. I have no bios access during the loop and it will not boot to any usb media. I am now wondering what I should do since it already has data migrated from my old machine and don't exactly want to start over. Is there anything that can be done other than returning it or sending it to lenovo support?

Dell XPS 17 :: Stuck In Startup Repair Loop After Windows Critical Update

Mar 18, 2012

I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop that seems to be stuck in the Startup Repair Loop, and I have tried everything to get out of the startup repair mode, but nothing seems to be working. I have tried F8, Safe Mode, System Restore (to two different dates), and the command prompt, but everything happened to no avail. I even did the Diagnostics test (long version), and that came up with nothing. I purchased the laptop back in October of 2010, and it has Windows 7. The laptop went into this Startup repair loop about a day after it did a Windows "Critical" update. One of the programs that the update tried to install onto my computer was Google Chrome (which it, according to the laptop, failed to install properly). It makes me wonder if the update uninstalled a driver, or turned a driver bad.

Two errors that I repeatedly get are "Corruptfile" and "Autofailover". I truly hope that this is something that can be fixed, and I hope that I will not have to restore my laptop back to it's factory settings.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Infinite Repair Loop - Updated Bluetooth Driver

Feb 10, 2013

Due to an update for the Bluetooth driver, my Laptop Inspiron N5010 has gone into a Repair Option Loop. Primary suggestion is to deal with the RegBack folder, something I haven't tried just yet. I can't see (through Linux Live DVDs or Win 7 Installation DVD) the Document Folder. There's is a User Folder and a UserName Folder but no Document Folder. There's a Desktop Folder but the files that used to be there are no longer there. I'm not sure if I really lost them or they're hidden by the system. I thought of removing the Hard Drive and connecting it to another PC to see if the Documents are still there but for this Inspiron, you need an Engineering Degree to remove the HD.

Before someone suggest it, there is no way to get into Safe Mode. The only option is using the Win 7 Home Premium Ed, go to repair option (which fails) and try the System Restore option. All ten Restoration Points failed.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Will Not Reboot Even In Safe Mode

Oct 30, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 320gb hard drive that I purchased in August 2013. It has been a great computer until last night.

I shut it down and later rebooted it.

It seemed normal until the wallpaper ( a photo of mine ) appeared as normal. The date and time was showing along with signal strength and battery strength.

None of my short cuts appeared and none of the keys on the key board work - at all.

I tried rebooting and hitting F8 to go to safe mode - nothing.

I tried a memory stick and a SD card but computer will not recognize anything. I would go back to all factory defaults and lose my files if I could get access.

When I tried, it went into setup quick enough, decpomressed the files, and installed everything.

On the first re-boot, however, it got to the bista status bar, and continuously rebooted.

I thought maybe it was a 64 bit thing, but then used a 32 bit vista disk, and the same thing happened.

Dell Latitude E6510 :: Spontaneous Shutdown And Reboot?

Sep 8, 2010

I've had my E6510 for about 2 months and I am having trouble with a spontaneous shutdown and reboot. There are no errors in the shutdown and the system reboots automatically within a few seconds of shutdown. I'm also experiencing trouble with system freezes. This latter problem may be fixed by an updated bios (as mentioned in another thread), but the shutdown and reboot is about to drive me crazy.

There is no rhyme or reason for it. I had it shutdown once when I pulled out a flashdrive one time, but the other times this was not an issue. Today I was typing an email message when it simply shutdown and rebooted.

It does not seem to be getting hot, but I need to check the LCD as mentioned in another thread.

I should mention this is 64-bit with 8MB RAM, running Windows 7.

Dell Latitude D630 :: Moved The 2MB Chip To The MB Under The Keyboard And Now It Won't Reboot?

I guess I can't update the BIOS if it won't boot.
