Pavilion Slimline s5-1540: computer keeps "blackout."

My computer has been "blackout."  By that I mean the screen will go black on the screen, but I don't think it's the monitor that is the problem.  All the busy lights turned on (the modem U-Verse, the monitor and the computer itself) and when the monitor comes back I'm in the same place I was when it came out.   This lasts only a second or two, but it worries me.  Do you have suggestions as to how I can know what is the problem and why it happens?  The computer was purchased March 29, 2013.  What is the monitor?

Hi Professor, I did the Malwarebytes scan, I checked that the driver was updated for this and I do not use of Norton Internet security, I have Vipre.  I did all this before I contacted HP because I have nothing to pinpoint the cause of these black found outs.  I also contacted Acer support and chatted with a nice France Mr on the causes and he almost asked me the same questions.  After all that I did and that was suggested by everyone I contacted, I have no answer.  Perhaps the monitor is just exhausting and is not a good fit with the computer more because the computer is not that old (we bought the monitor in 2009 and the computer in 2013).  I assume that there is only one solution, an expensive however.  My birthday is coming up so maybe I can get a new monitor then.

Thank you all for your help,

  • HP pavilion slimline s3632me graphic card problem

    It's my computer: & lang = to & cc = us & conte...

    my graphics card has a fan that is not working, and I don't get any signal on my monitor after 20 minutes of start... so I decided to get a new graphics card which is better.

    so I want to know what is the max graphics card that I can put in this computer and should I go for the same type (AC express graphics card) or get any type that can work with the computer?

    Here are the specifications of your HP Pavilion Slimline s3632me desktop computer and its card mother M2N61-AR (Acacia). Based on the specifications, this model has a power of 160 watts, a graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS PCIe x 16 HDMI and DVI - I outputs and integrated nVidia GeForce 6150SE graphics with a VGA output. Note that the discreet graphics card and the built-in graphics card is not usable at the same time.

    You need to replace the graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS PCIe x 16 with a x 16 low profile PCIe graphics card (the card must have a power system recommend assessment of 160 watts or less). All purchased card that has a higher recommended system power supply requirement will require the purchase of a new power supply, follow the recommendations in cards.

    I'm becoming exasperated by the regular failures reported during the monthly HP Support Assistant Tune up or analyses of health on my HP Pavilion Slimline desktop computer.     The display disappears usually before I do a screen grab.     But today, I got the following:

    So why the analysis of health is failing?      I don't know if all relevant diagnostic report is placed on my computer.     If they are produced, so I don't know where to find them.

    Or do I have a version of corrupt/out-of-day of the Support Assistant software?

    Or y at - it an explanation?

    I would be grateful for any light.     Thank you.

    Brian, welcome to the forum.

    I can't give you a good explanation for the problems you are having.  It is probably a bug in the software.  I had very similar problems when using Windows Update.  Do not install the updates without apparent reason.

    Here is the Official Site for HPSA.  I have suggrest by downloading and installing the latest version.  You must uninstall the current version before you start.  I'd be happy to hear the result.

  • HP Pavilion Slimline computer Office S5610F - drivers Windows XP

    Hello HP Forum,

    My father recently bought a HP Pavilion Slimline S5610F desktop, refurbished and wants that I format and install Windows XP. I was wondering if this is possible? In the past, I have sought answers from this forum and have always made to answers and help I've gotten. I know that it is already harder to find drivers with my Compaq a few years ago, so I can only imagine that XP drivers are still harder to find now.

    Thank you in advance to help you with this matter.


    Hi, Stéphane:

    Sorry, none of these drivers were working. I took a bet on them being identical to that of a PC HP Pro 3125 which had the same chipset.

    Try the driver for chipset southbridge AMD from AMD (first listed file).

    The image you posted will take awhile to get through.

    In the meantime, you can try the audio drivers / Realtek network on the Realtek site:


    Accept the agreement. Download and install the file 6th on the list (first in green).

    Network: Try the 4th on the list.


  • HP Pavilion Slimline s3505f: HP Pavilion Slimline s3505f & COMPAQ Presario CQ5110F

    I learned a lot from browsing these forums already, for that I thank you.
    It seemed like the perfect place for my questions.
    Due to the limits of my technical knowledge and the age of the components in question, I'm having a hard time finding Info for comparison for the task I have in mind.
    Essentially what I would do, is make the best targeted computer audio I can with what I have on the spot.

    Ideally, I would like to be able to use 2 monitors and use the second HD as slave for just load and run samples and VSTi, while programs are on the other hard drive.
    Okay, so I have two desktop computers, each with a bit of a problem...

    * COMPAQ Presario CQ5110F (2008ish)
    Processor AMD Athlon X 2 7550 Dual Core 2.5 GHz = Socket: AM2 +.
    Card mother = Narra5 M2N68 - THE Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 Socket: AM2 +.

    Hard = 320 GB SATA 7200 RPM drive
    CD/DVD Player = DVD +/-R / RW 16 X SuperMulti SATA drive

    Power = 300w
    Case = Mid size 38cmHx17cmWx43cmL ATX

    * HP Pavilion Slimline s3505f (2008ish)
    Processor = Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 2.6 GHz Socket type: 775
    Card mother = type of Irvine w/GeForce 7100/nForce 630i CHIPSET Socket: 775
    Memory RAM = 3 GB PC2-6400 MB/s supports up to 4GB (2GB DDR2 DIMM)

    Specific details: The Pavilion Slimline currently does not start any type of display, so I'm leaning towards a Mobo problem, but have not spent anytime understand? The Presario was a 'noise' the other day according to my wife, but doesn't have a car, I'm leaning towards a rattle HD or a fan?

    I'm uncomfortable, disassembly, cleaning and reassembly of components.
    I also agree with doing a clean OS install if it is meant to be of value, (where are these records?)
    I would use Interface Audio USB Steinberg CI1 MixCraft 6 as my program main recording/editing.

    Band in a box will also use.

  • HP Pavilion Slimline s5304y strange behavior and stops randomly

    To start, here is my card:

    HP Pavilion Slimline s5304y

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit SP1 Build 7601

    AMD Athlon II X processor 2 215

    4 GB of RAM, blah blah blah

    Here are the symptoms:

    -Win7 starts to act strangely, when the keys are depressed they'll keep recording (like that, but forever)

    -Then it will attempt to force the closure but I keep open Word 2007, which will block the closure and I gives me the option to cancel or to force stop word.

    -J' I usually Cancel to see what it does, sometimes it continues to operate normally, sometimes, attempts to stop become more frequent until it ask no more, and Word cannot veto the shutdown request.

    -When I look at the Event Viewer system, he says he is told what USER (me) has launched the stop, as if it were normal.

    -A little more digging in the event viewer application section says that before stopping, "HP Support Assistant Service" had a "PowerEvent handled successfully by the service" with EventRecordID of 10883.

    -Meet system Event ID 109


    EventRecordID 45150


    "The process C:\Windows\System32\winlogon.exe (USER) has launched the power off computer USER for the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account for the following reason: no title for this reason could be found.

    Reason code: 0x500ff

    Type of closure: power off

    EventID: 1074

    [Qualification] 32768

    There is no indication that something went WRONG minidump, no discharges of any sort, sfc/scannow ran own just like chkdsk, memtest, tester of windows 7 and all other diagnostic tools.

    He did it before, but very rarely, so I thought nothing of it (which happened in the spans of the months apart) but now happened several times a day.

    Recent software additions:

    Installing the software and drivers Lexmark Prospect Pro205

    -Updated Nvidia graphics drivers Geforce 6150SE nForce 430 to and it's Helper service ver 295,73

    What I did to try to rectify the situation:

    -Scanned with each virus/malware free scan in existence - deleted an infected file from Java Java/CVE-2011-3544. O operate. And another unrelated to the advertising program.

    -Updated HP Assistant and Advisor

    -Updated several times with various updates for windows 7

    -Clean the case thought it was overheating, but nope - clean as a whistle, normal running time

    -Good fans checked

    -Extract from food - looked good, constant voltage

    I haven't checked the power extension cables. I heard there is a problem with shorting out on the 24-pin extensions, but I didn't have an extension of 24 pins on the power cables.

    I've heard others have had problems with HP stopping randomly with a strange behavior, so I wanted to see what you guys have to say.

    Could this be problems of power with my house? The wiring is old... Or more likely is a short circuit in the cable/PSU?

    How can I easily repair/test of this theory?

    -All right, so the system restore has nothing but destroy some files, because I couldn't not correctly backup the drive between the random stops.

    However, I found the solution to my problem, that you won't believe.

    Short answer: I replaced the stock HP keyboard (model KU-0841) who seems to have been short.

    The long answer:

    -When the computer kept shutting down even in safe mode after a destructive recovery, I started watching again material.

    -Noticed my typing would sometimes record, sometimes just go crazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy (like this).

    -Then comes the keyboard no longer works. Thus, while the veto stops with WORD 2007 and using the keyboard on the screen in Win7, I thought it was a terrible virus - it wasn't.

    -When I unplugged the USB keyboard it's a strange electric 'bzz' sound, like what you hear when static is unloaded. It turns out that the USB port has been be short-circuited by the keyboard.

    On the keyboard and the USB plug was going well, so I don't know who is to blame again, however - if someone is having the same weird problems with events of the power of the nucleus and 1074 with 0x500ff errors-try to check your hardware.

    After replacing the keyboard, everything works perfectly.

    HP does not provide more recent than Win7 for your PC drivers, so there is no updated HP driver to fix the problem.

    John, no, the HD 4650 requires too much power for your power supply unit (PSU).  It does not say in the specifications of the computer, but I think that the power supply is 180W to 220W.  The 4650 requires a minimum of 400 w to work properly.  In addition, the computer requires a low profile video card.
