HP Pavilion p6-2069sc: computer hangs during the HP splash screen


I plug an ASUS GeForce GTX STRIX 750Ti to use in my Pavilion P6 - 2069sc, but when I start the computer after installing my GPU, the screen hangs on the blue HP startup screen.

When I try to hit the ESC key to enter the BIOS or any other keys it comes just a beep of the machine.

It is a long beep every 20 seconds or so from the computer.

When I use the integrated graphics card, everything works as they should.

I already upgraded to 550W 300W POWER supply

Because your computer has been manufacturer Sept 2011, there Legacy BIOS.  The latest vBIOS UEFI was initiated at the HP units at end of 2012.  That said, either you stay with a Legacy BIOS GPU card, or choose a dual hybrid card BIOS.  The GTX 660, or GTX 670, all of which are two high-end of the legacy card would be far superior to the GTX 750Ti.   All the current hype is looking for a lower quality card, the 750Ti, based on the more low power and some GTX offering a BIOS hybrid via Select manufacturer. The Asus could not be hybrids, as you can testify.

http://www.hwcompare.com/17306/GeForce-GTX-750-TI-vs-GeForce-GTX-670/ 550W PSU


Based on your existing new POWER Pack, (hopefully a quality unit), 660 GTX would be good.  In my humble OPINION, an EVGA GTX 660 is better based on your power supply of the system. Please call EVGA for re - check a Legacy BIOS.

PS I have a EVGA GTX 660 and 670 in my BIOS Legacy of <>towers.  I tried an ASUS, but he did not have an ASUS motherboard. Strange, but ASUS check the fault has his own card. Cost me $50 return shipping cost, so Please check with any manufcacturer.

    Hi there @ldgie25.

    That the Forums are with you!  I understand that, after a few updates, your computer does not start correctly and freezes on the HP logo.   I'm happy to help you with this.

    Since it was started once, but then had a blue error screen, I suggest using the computers HP - use Microsoft System Restore (Windows, 10, 8).   Follow the instructions in the section «restore your computer when Windows is unable to boot normally»  See if it will start normally after the restoration. If yes then you probably want to prevent the offending update to install again.

  • Computer hangs during the transfer of 16 jpeg files.

    Recently, I replaced my Toshiba Satellite M40 PATA hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP SP3.  Subsequently, I find transfer more than 16 jpeg files (approx. 1 MB each) at the same time causes the computer freezes.  I have to shut down the computer and restart and sometimes the computer is 'always' Hung/frozen after restarting Windows (mouse move no keys, ctrl + alt + delete work does produce no action) which necessitated my stop down and restart the computer again.

    This problem occurs during various methods of transfer-to transfer pictures from my card SD using the scanner and camera or Nikon transfer software, trying to copy and paste pictures from the SD in an empty folder, and the problem occurs even when I try to spend more than 16 images from a folder in another.  I tried to transfer images from a folder with the computer in safe mode and the problem occurs when I try to transfer a little more than 16 images at once.  (my SD card, has about 60 images on that.)  There is no error message or any other message - the computer simply crashes.

    I did not have this problem before reinstalling XP.  There seems to be no limit to the size of the transfer that I could perform. I can't wait to find out how I can remedy this problem.  I am familiar with writing code, check the registry, etc, but I'm good enough following the simple procedures.  Thank you for your help.

    Hi, I recently got a computer and I just realized that whenever I turn it on after a long period of time (eteindre turn off during the night, turn it on morning) my computer freezes at windows startup screen. Sometimes a blue error screen appears and after reading it, I would say that a material is not installed correctly.

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.


    Restore point:


    Do Safe Mode system restore, if it is impossible to do in Normal Mode.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.


    Read the above for a very good graph shows how backward more than 5 days in the System Restore Points by checking the correct box.



    If the system or Mode restore safe work not and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.


    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

  • The computer hangs during the communication via a serial port

    I developed a code in LabVIEW 2011 to connect with the XY stage. It's actually two steps mounted perpendicularly. The installer of the system is that a (made by the same manufacturer as the stadium) gamepad is connected to the USB port on the computer if a USB to Serial converter. A step is daisy chanied to the controller and the other stage Garland at the first stage.

    To our application had to continually check the status and position of the steps X and Y. Because the joystick also returns responses when a request is sent to all devices, I need to send applications individually; for example. one request per order per device, making it a total of 4 orders. It takes care of the error returned by the controller. The problem, however, is that after a while the freezing of the program or the computer stops and restarts. It is located about 13 minutes (on average) after the start of the program. It also happens even when no command is sent to the devices. I put 50 ms delay before each send two commands (position and status) by device. Basically, the application waits for 50ms before sending two commands for X stage and the receipt of the response and when everything is done with X stage, he expects another 50 ms to do the same for step Y. Should this procedure goes on until the application is stopped. But as I said, there is a problem. Now, I guess the problem is that serial port buffer overflows. He chose to increase the delay time, but if it works to solve the problem, then I have no choice!

    I would appreciate any thoughts and comments!

    After a lot of time to experiment, I am convinced that the issue was with adapter Profilic.

  • When install Vista Home Premium computer hangs on the language selection screen. No visible cursor, the keyboard and the mouse does not.

    Hi, when I try to install vista that Home Premium 32 bits on the computer of my son, through the installation of loading files with the gray bar at the bottom, then goes to the screen language selection, at this stage, I can not select anything using the keyboard or the mouse. There is no cursor visible. Keyboard and mouse both work fine in the bios and on other machines. Have used other keyboards and mice on the machine in question, but that makes no difference. Tried another copy of vista, no difference. Tested on Windows 7 install and everything works fine!

    Very confused, thinking that it must be a driver problem, but how about him? Any help is appreciated!

  • Satellite Pro L300-1FN does not start - hang at the BIOS splash screen

    My Satellite Pro L300-1FN refuses to start. When turned on the laptop displays the home screen toshiba/insyde H20 BIOS and the message "press F2 go to the Setup utility, F12 to go to the start menu" and flashes the light access to the hard drive, but don't try to continue loading. I left the bios at the start screen, but it doesn't do anything for long hours on a power supply or is running the battery flat while on battery.

    Is there a way to re - put the BIOS on this unit? If it's a desktop unit I would remove the CMOS battery to force a reset of the BIOS but that's impossible on a laptop. The hard drive is fine because I have it plugged into another system to remove valuable data.


    What happens if you press F2 when starting the laptop to the top?
    You can access the BIOS?
    If so, access the BIOS and set its default value. I think you need to press F9 or F10 to get default parameters, but this will be mentioned at the bottom of the page of the BIOS.

    I was recently on my computer and running windows 7 with happiness and problem free, until I downloaded a file from the internet.

When I click on 'Yes', the message will disappear, but the computer hangs at the screen has gone even a light, tinted gray, with all of the programs that are still running in the background. It freezes for about 2 minutes and then decides to return to normal, free for me to return to work and navigation.

Confused, I ran over and over again, but with very little success, and the problem continued to appear. I tried to launch a clean boot, but that doesn't help more. Can someone help me please? Thanks :)

  • Pavilion h8 - 1070t: blocked on the HP splash screen, computer beep

    I just installed a PSU Corsair CX600 and an EVGA GeForce gt 740.

    When I start my PC, is rest on the start screen and beeps once, every ten seconds. After 3 beeps (30 seconds) my PC beeps again followed three quick beeps and the monitor stops receiving signal from the computer (I do not see the HP splash screen, no signal).

    What could be the problem?

    I think that your problem is that the video card is not compatible with your BIOS.  EVGA 700 series cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS.  I suggest you to contact EVGA Tech Support (1-888-880-3842) to see if they have a VBIOS update that will allow the card to work with your computer.  If they do not have an update that they can email it to you.  Tell them that someone of the HP Forums suggested that you call.
