Ok i accidentally shut my hp pavilion xt963 off the wrong way. KNow when i turn on my computer it comes up to a blue screen. I used to have a disk that could fix it whenever i shut it off wrong, but that disk broke. Does anyone know where i can get another disk that can fix that problem.

Strange story.

Presumably HP is the best place to get such a disk. But I really wonder what kind of disk it was.

The only blue screen I can imagine that comes up after an irregular shutdown is the automatic scandisk screen in Windows 95/98/ME, but that normally does its job (scanning the disk, and repairing errors) without needing any disk.

So tell more. And include your OS.

I had the same model,and i never had a disc except the ones i used to back up my pics and such. If you can get to the system recovery program, it will give you the option to do a system restore from there.
