Default Re: Cannot restart my HP computer with HP original Recovery Disks

I carefully read both referrals. I could not find anything in there that
would solve my problem, since it says to do this or that once a certain
message appears. I get no message and the screen remains black. But the
monitor is plugged into computer and power supply.

I have done that now for 10 minutes. Started up again, no results to report.
I will let it run through the night, I think.

I have done these things before and NEVER had any problems for myself or for
friends, where I helped them.

FWIW, I believe sgopus seems to be on the right track.

But just to be sure...

You stated, "Inserting the HP recovery disks again does not do anything
either." Were you booting off the hard drive or the CD? Are you able to
access the BIOS? (And if you are unable to access the BIOS, again I
agree this sounds like a video problem.)

I tried the monitor now on a different desktop (also HP) and it immediately
comes up with Windows 7.
So - we can rule out monitor for sure.

Default Re: Cannot restart my HP computer with HP original Recovery Disks

I tried both, because HP support said to try again use their original System
Restore disks.
It does not work.
Staring the computer from the hard disk also does not work.

The monitor is fine. Just put it on a another computer and it comes right
up. (also HP but with Windows 7)

I cannot access the BIOS since nothing comes up on the screen.

Default Re: Cannot restart my HP computer with HP original Recovery Disks

1. The disks are the supplied disks from HP called System Recovery.
2. It did a total format and went through all normal operations, never got
stuck. It just does not start up the computer anymore.
3. Before I did have a C:\ drive and a D:\drive restore partition.
4. I wanted to restore the computer to factory condition before I would give
it away. So I used the HP official System Recovery disks.
5. It did initially restore Windows XP (the HP version) since the screen
showed Windows XP. But after it asks to reboot, it brought up nothing.
6. I tried rebooting without disk, with CTL and Backspace, with holding down
F11, F10, ESC, Delete. Nothing helped to show anything on screen

You didn't read carefully enough, in the first article under the section
"Recovering During Startup" and in the second article under "Starting A
Recovery" they state:
<quote>
Turn on the computer.
Just after the first screen appears (the logo screen), press the F10 key
repeatedly until a recovery menu appears.

Looking at the second article I find in it:
<quote>
If your computer stops responding after using the recovery program, do the
following:
NOTE: If the computer appears to have stopped responding after restarting from
a recovery, please wait, it may take several hours or longer to complete the
initial Windows XP setup process, especially if a recovery was run from a
recovery disc set sent by HP. A Standard recovery may also take longer,
depending on how many files are stored in user accounts (like in My Documents ).
