    My dad's HP pavilion 7935 wouldn't start this morning and gave me a bunch of beeps, after not finding anything on the HP website I called their customer service # and was told it was a memory problem. after removing the 2 128MB sticks I replaced them with 2 64MB sticks (just temporary till I get to the store).
    This gave a new & improved error beep (another mem prob) so I removed one stick. the beeps stopped but now it gets stuck in a loop b/w the HP invent (blue startup screen) and the Windows XP loading screen. I AM REALLY CONFUSED NOW!!!! please, please, please, someone know what to do

    HP Pavilion 7935
    1.3 GHz AMD Athlon
    256MB reduced to 64MB
    :confused: :( :confused:

    I checked the beep codes on the HP website.
    I am no longer getting the beeps (aside from the normal single beep) the problem is the computer getting stuck in the loop.

    turn off the auto reboot so that it comes up with the reason for it happening

    The OS wont load, when i turn the computer on, I get the blue HP startup screen, then it goes the loading windows xp screen. it then resets and goes back to the blue HP screen.
    I have tried booting in safe mode, step by step mode, even last known good configuration, but the same thing happens no matter what.

    reset the cmos look in your manual to see where the jumpers are or remove the cmos battery for 10 min and then go into the bios and reset it to default

    That got it.
    Thank You for your help, Dai.
    I may have to do this again when I replace the memory, but now I know, and knowing is half the battle.

    This website RULES!!!!!
