I have a HP Pavillion G71150 with Windows 7 that is freezing at startup. Laptop never gets to Windows sign on screen.
Was able to get to command prompt and attempt to run in Safe Mode but nothing happened.
Was also able to select "chkdsk" but could not perform a restart. No option available to do this.
Tried the hard boot and selecting Safe Mode and Start Windows Normally but still set at blank screen.
Removed batter and attempted to startup. Same thing occurred.
Also removed power cord from laptop but nothing occurred.
@shieldskh Here are a few steps that should help us identify and resolve the issue:
Step 1: Run hardware diagnostic tests
Make sure the issue is not hardware related by performing diagnostic tests.
In Windows, search for and open the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics for Windows app.
If the app is not installed on your computer, download the latest version from the HP Hardware Diagnostics website.
On the main menu, click System Tests.
Click the System Fast Test tab.
Click Run once.
While the test is running, the time remaining and test result for each component displays on the screen.
If a component fails a test, write down the failure ID (24-digit code) and contact HP Customer Support. The information is also available in the Test Logs on the main menu.
If no system component failed, continue with these steps.
On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostic app, click System Test, and then click System Extensive Test. The Extensive Test might take several hours to complete.
If an issue is not found, continue to the next step.
