Code purple error on hp 1410n - HP PC Desktops


Answers :

"Code Purple" on an Windows XP system: This Worked for me!:

Okay, I have read and read and read, on this site, and on others, trying to fix the "Code Purple" problem. Many of the answers ALMOST worked for me; but I, like many others, couldn't get to the H: drive to del the key file. At the C:\\ prompt, I couldn't CD to H:\\. So what I did was to give the DEL command from the C:\\ prompt. See below for the 2 detailed procedures. The first is for those who have the Recovery Disk Set, the other is for those without the set. Good Luck!

Procedures for recovery from "Code Purple" on a Windows XP system:

Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITH a Recovery Disk Set:

1. Load the first system recovery disk into the CD-ROM drive
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\\minint\\system32> prompt, type "del h:\\hp\\bin\\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q
8. Press Q to quit the Recovery Window (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

*I have found that there is no need to Select "Advanced Options" prior to pressing Alt + D.


Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITHOUT a Recovery Disk Set:

If the Recovery Partition on your hard drive is intact, this should work:

1. Turn on PC and repeatedly press F10 (pause for a second between key presses) until the Recovery Screen comes up
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\\minint\\system32> prompt, type "del h:\\hp\\bin\\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

Under windows XP:
\012- Get into C:\\hp\\bin\\CheckConfig\\cfgchk.bat
\012- Rename the file "run.py" to "run.p_" or just delete it. (That's the \012file that verify the hardware configuration for the OEM version)
\012- Then reboot!

\012Under windows vista:
\012- Get into C:\\hp\\bin\\CheckDMI folder
\012- Rename the file "CheckDMI.cmd" to "CheckDMI"
\012 or
\012- Edit the file and change the "0" (zero) value (there is only one in \012the whole file) for "1" value...which means that the hardware \012configuration respect the terms of the OEM contract.
\012- Then reboot!
