My Hp Pavilion won't start up when I turn it on!

I have a HP Pavilion that has windows xp but when i turn it on it says starting windows but it doesn't have the little lights flashing and sometimes it says "Windows loading files" but then it just goes back to the starting windows again?

Re: My Hp Pavilion won't start up when I turn it on!

Jason,

 

If you are lucky, the service manual may be detailed enough to help you figure out how to open up the case and get to the webcam wires.  Some computers have good services manuals, others, not-so-much.

 

Start at 

Support and Drivers

Enter your information, Click on manuals and see if you can find a Service manual for your product.

 

The other place to look is on YouTube.  These webcams are so prone to loose bits that there are lots of videos out there on "how to fix" the little beasts.  The trick is to find someone who has made a video of YOUR box.

 

Ciip on webcams work pretty well, fold up like small travel mice, and are reliable.  When you can't stand it any longer, get one.  Smiling.  Logitech makes an awesome webcam and the mid-to-high end HP is good, too - I have one.  There are other good ones out there, too.

 

 

For the Pavilion, there's a blink code doc - don't know if there's any help in it...

Troubleshooting LED Blink Codes or Beep Codes During Startup or Boot

 

Good Luck!
