My HP laptop just shut down while I was using it and now it shows the windows starting but then it goes to a black screen with nothing but a blinking underscore in the top left corner! I really need this laptop for school work.
What can I do? I also tried pressing F8 or F12, an stuff nothing worked except F2 and that only says startup check on the bottom, then goes to a page with system info.
Startup test run in test system tuneup hard disk test memory and test battery. Test error log and exit.
To determine if the HP Recovery Manager is operational, press the power switch to turn on the computer, and then repeatedly press f11 during the startup. If the Recovery Manager is operational, the computer will display a prompt to either (1) recover the operating system from files stored on the recovery partition, or (2) create a set of recovery discs which does not require the purchase of a replacement recovery disc.
If you need to purchase the disks, you will find all the information you want on this link:
