HP DV7-1260US

i have an HP DV7-1260US, purchased from best Buy - the GUI will not appear after booting up . i have gone into BIOS setup to arrange boot sequence . Still no GUI aftre booting up : just a sign in showing Microsoft at bottomn of screen.

I do not wish to receover and rest to factory settings (ie: format drive) as it may not solve the issue.

any ideas


lack of GUI

Re: HP DV7-1260US



Here is something you can check.


Start the notebook and let Windows fully load.  Hold down the Windows Key and press R.  Into the Run Box type msconfig and hit enter.  On the System Configuration window, click the Boot tab - if there is a tick in the box next to No GUI boot, click the box to remove it and then click Apply and Ok.  Restart the notebook to apply the change.
