according to the specs (http://h10010.www1.h...7167.html?dnr=1) it doesnt look like that PC has wireless capabilities

You can check this link for solutions, but overall if u want wireless capabilities, you will need a wireless adapter.

heres some fixes taken from that link

1) Get PCI wireless adapter which you will insert in an empty PCI slot inside your computer.

2). Buy a USB wireless adapter, which you plug in a USB port.
However, if my memory serves me right, that particular HP pavillion is 5 or 6 years old, and it does support USB 2.0, just USB 1.1

Anyone have a solution for those annoying bluescreen errors? Keep having to do system restore

Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown


Windows can check online for a solution to the problem the next time you go online


Of course Windows never does check for a solution

Problem Event Name: Bluescreen

blue screens can be fixed with going into safe mode then restarting the computer

No it can't. It depends on what the problem is. It can be anything from hardware failure to conflicting drivers.

I didn't write down the code (I will if it happens again) but it said "Interrupt Exception Not Handled".

What I did write down was:

Files that help describe the problem:



"C:\Windows\Minidump\020613-51807-01.dmp"

"C:\Windows\Temp\WER-64771-0.sysdata.xml"

There isn't anything I can tell from the files that descibe the problem, Windu. Between now and the next time you can write down a bluescreen code, you can further investigate by trying some of these common methods:

*Run a memtest
*Run chkdisk

Memtest checks your Random Access Memory to see if it is failing. If your RAM is failing, you can replace it easily and for very cheap.
Download and burn the iso to a blank CD-R or DVD-R, and then place it in your CD/DVD-Rom drive and boot from the disc. You may need to alter your boot priority, which can be done by going into BIOS by rapidly hitting the F11 or F12 key when the computer first turns on (sometimes varies based upon motherboard and firmware). http://www.memtest86.com/

Chkdisk check your hard drive for bad sectors and will let you know if your HDD is failing. This is generally more challenging to replace than RAM, but not much harder. It isn't too expensive to replace, the only trouble is the time it may take to backup your important data from the failing hard drive. See here: https://www.microsof...k.mspx?mfr=true


Goodluck.

This would only be the case if a virus resided within the /tmp dir and it was cleared out by rebooting, OR, when in safe mode, msconfig is set to a diagnostic startup so only important drivers and services are loading.

No it can't. It depends on what the problem is. It can be anything from hardware failure to conflicting drivers.


Marc Maron is correct. Bluescreens are arguably one of the most unforgiving errors in the history of tech. It varies from drivers, hardware, HDD full on space (literally got a bluescreen from this once)....

That is good then. Perhaps you may want to consider downloading Driver Genius and letting it scan your hardware for new driver updates. I have found that this third party software has found driver updates for certain components of my computer when the Windows updater could not. It may be worth a shot: http://download.cnet...4-10238646.html

If you are constantly doing a system restore, what you may want to consider if you can't diagnose the problem, is to backup all of your important data and then completely format your drive. Then, install a completely clean version of Windows and put your files back on. I'm happy to try and get you a free Windows key from my colleague if you need one.

The check came back fine. Problem now is the computer keeps trying to do one at every startup. Blue screen comes up immediately but closes too fast for me to jot down info.

Try to go into safemode, go to start -> msconfig

Select "Diagnostic Startup"

Reboot.

If you are still getting the chkdisk, go to start -> type in cmd

If it returns that your C partition is dirty, type in

And hit enter. Then, reboot.


Hopefully one of the two helps you out.

Edit: Try the msconfig regardless (if you can get into windows without safemode, you can access msconfig there too), it may help disable something unwarranted that is causing bluescreens.
Also, now that it is more than likely not hardware, give that Driver Genius a go.

Since it is likely not hardware (still could be), hopefully we can narrow down an outdated driver.
