Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv6208nr Notebook ?

HP Pavillion dv9000 will not boot up in normal mode, only safe.

\015 So I come downstairs to my computer a couple weeks ago and try to boot it up. After putting my password in, it goes black and the cursor stays at the middle of the screen. I can move the cursor around but nothing comes up. I can open it in the Safe Mode(s) and can connect to the internet but my sound card, video card, usb, etc... doesn't work. My original course of action was to put everything irreplaceable on an external and reload my OS but...this can not happen without the USB working in safe mode... Any ideas?\015

Have you tried an XP repair?
\015\012Then you can save your data .

\015\012When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
\015\012If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
\015\012Thanks, Joe
This happened to me with my compaq F700...after an automatic update the screen was changed to a resolution the monitor could not handle...thus the black screen...but if you booted in safe mode, you would have a screen because safe mode uses a lower resolution. While in safe mode, try changing your registry setting to allow for a lower resolution on your main start up and see if that clears the problems.
