attysecy August 18, 2013 at 18:53:14 Specs: Windows Vista 32-bit
I'm working on a HP pavilon laptop that is running Windows Vista 32-bit. It will not boot up OR if it does we get this error: the file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum. I'm not sure what this means. I've been reading all day on help forums and nothing has really helped. The problem is it WILL NOT bootup so I cannot get to safe mode at all. No blinking cursor, etc. I have tried F2 & ran that memory & hard disk diagnosis & nothing seems to be amiss. On the error log I really didn't see any errors. There were several listed as 602 but am not sure if that's an error. I do not have the windows xp repair or start up disk. I've unplugged it, removed the battery which by the way is dead anyway so we run on direct plug in. We have not added anything new to the pc as memory or programs. Any ideas to help would be really welcomed or if I missed anything. Maybe it's just dead.
I don't think it's the monitor since it does display every once in awhile, "the file corrupt message". Not on every boot up but once in awhile I can get that message. Would that be the monitor/screen issue? This is laptop.
