motherboard crash

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey everyone long time no see, i need a bit of help. what are the chances that a computer motehrboard may crash? for some reason i saw an HP 6610n stay on the hp logo for atleast 15-20 seconds and then it goes to a blue screen. when i tried to load windows vista from a disc it still blue screens on me and it's not the hard drive from what i see because i disconnected the harddrive and the computer still takes 15-20 seconds to get off the hp logo bios page. is there anything i can do to fix that for do i have to call HP so i can get the motherboard fixed. because this computer got me mad.

try a coms reset first of all then go into the bios and disable the ful screen logo at boot.
reboot and watch what the POST screen says that may give some clues as to whats happening.

while your in the bios you may want to check everthing is in order. correct hard drives are selected etc
also make sure when booting from a disk that the disk drive is the first in the boot order in the bios.

If it clears the POST ok it likely its not the motherboard i`d start looking at a fix boot. follow my post here to se if you can rectife the issue that way. although it may be diferant for vista as i never had to do it yet.

knowing my luck i`ll find out in ten min
