Why does my HP Pavillion dv6000 go into hibernation each time I boot? 

by on November 9, 2010

Q: My HP Pavillion dv6000 with Windows XP Media Center and HP QuickPlay has a bootup problem. After QuickPlay loads and I select the Windows icon, Windows goes into hibernation. I have rebooted several times and tried different keys to bypass that but nothing works. Even used the ‘restore disk’ (F11) function twice and still same issue. Occasionally I am able to get past it by pressing keys but nothing that works consistently. When it does go into Windows okay, I am able to update to SP3, load software etc. and even ‘restart’ but it I shutdown and bootup later it keeps going into the hibernation loop.

 
 

How come my HP Pavillion dv500 will not shutdown normally? 

by on October 19, 2010

Q: My HP Pavillion dv500 won’t shutdown, go on standby, restart, sleep, or hibernate. If I try to put it on sleep, it does everything that it’s supposed to do, and then just stays on my desktop background.

It won’t shutdown unless I hold the power button for about 5 seconds. My system runs on Windows XP. Any help please?

I really don’t want to do a System Restore.
