HP TouchSmart 520PC freezes on blue HP startup screen

This problem first occured today. Upon powering up the computer it froze on the blue HP screen. The screen says "Press escape to go to system manager" or something along those lines.

 

Pressing escape does nothing.

 

The first time this happened I powered it down, unplugged everything and left it for 20-30 minutes.

 

When I powered it back on, everything worked normal and it went to my password screen.

 

Now, it is doing the same thing and powering down and letting it sit has no affect.

 

I have not installed anything recently or had any updates.

 

The computer is two years old with Windows 7 and intel Core i3.

 

Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: HP TouchSmart 520PC freezes on blue HP startup screen

Hello, I am having this same problem - however, letting the computer be powered down does nothing to rectify the problem. It remains stuck at the HP logo screen with no response to the ESC key.

 

Model is QU167AA@ABA (Touchsmart 520-1020)

 

I see no light activity at all on keyboard either (ie, no F10,etc key illicits a response).

 

thanks in advance!

Hi JuiceDidit,

 

I understand you computer is just sitting on the HP logo screen and will not boot up.

Here is a document on how to recover you system. Please remove all unnecessary USB devices before starting this.
