Other ways to boot in safe mode HP dv6 W7.-finland_orb_small.png

Terve Xhimi, tervetuloa Seiska Foorumille.

Vanhemmissa HP'n Pavilion dv-sarjan läppäreissä esiintyy silloin tällöin kuvalemasi kaltainen buuttiongelma, kun joko akku tai emolevy alkaa olla käyttötaipaleensa loppusuoralla. Kone ei saa aloitettua ns. POST vaihetta (Power On Self Test, käynnistyksen itsetestaus). Ongelman ilmestyminen juuri nyt voi olla ihan puhdas sattuma, sillä ei välttämättä ole mitään tekemistä asentamasi Boujou softan kanssa.

Kokeile tätä resetoidaksesi kone:
  • Sammuta kone
  • Irroita akku ja virtajohto
  • Pidä koneen virtakytkintä alaspainettuna noin 30 sekuntia
  • Odota 15-20 minuuttia, liitä sitten virtajohto mutta ei akkua
  • Käynnistä kone
  • Jos kone käynnistyy, sulje se uudestaan ja laita akku paikalleen ennen uudelleen käynnistystä

Jos kone ei edelleenkään käynnisty, tule takaisin niin kokeillaan jotain muuta.

Toivotaan että onnistuu!

Hello Xhimi, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Older HP Pavilion dv series laptops can have this kind of boot problems sometimes when either the battery or motherboard is coming closer its life cycle. The laptop simply can't start the POST (Power On Self Test) and can therefore not boot. That your issue occurred first time just after you installed a new application and got a blue screen can be a pure coincidence.

You could try this to completely reset your laptop:
  • Turn the laptop off
  • Disconnect the power cord, remove the battery
  • Press and hold down the power switch of the laptop at least 30 seconds
  • Wait 15 to 20 minutes, plug the power cord back. Do not insert the battery yet
  • Turn the laptop on
  • If it boots normally now, turn it off again when Windows has booted normally, replace the battery before turning it on again

If your laptop does not boot after this procedure, come back and we'll try something else.

Good luck!

Kari

Hi.
I try and this option but nothing happen.
I see this "safe mode":
I put in the USB with w7 to boot from USB.
I push tthe buton to power on and i press F8 on startup.
I get safe mode but with window "install windows 7" option.
Nothing,the options is to install window clean,fresh... and more.
I don't want to install new window again.
I want to have the old window with my files,doc,pic,and more, i haven't problem the programs.
Anyway, i want to thnx all people here for your help.
i believe i will find some solution.
All the best.

First, I have to apologize Xhimi that I forgot you are not a Finn although you show Finnish flag under you avatar, so using Finnish language in my previous post was a mistake. Just after posting I remembered who you are, that we've had this discussion earlier

Sorry. No more Finnish to you

Then back to your issue. If your computer does not boot past that blinking hyphen on black screen it means POST can not run, which makes computer unable to boot. I still think this could be your issue, and if it was my laptop, I would repeat the resetting procedure once more.

Next thing is to check the connectors of hard disk(s). The HD's are located on the bottom of your laptop, under a lid attached with 4 screws. Open the lid, disconnect and reconnect HD's.

If everything else fails, but as you mentioned you can boot from your installation USB, you can do a repair install. It keeps all your installed applications and personal files. Repair Install

Please, do not have to ask forgiveness.
I really enjoy that you remember.
♥♥♥Many thanks for your support and solutions to tell.
But I missed it all, as made clean install, that I lost patience and got bored.
Can "I had saved all the files with the doc doing refresh install.
But this idea came after I had reached the middle of installation.
♥♥♥However, many thanks for your help and everyone here at SEVEN FORUMS.
