Hi try hitting F8 when system is booting up, you can select safe mode or last know good configuration. Check also if you installed a new hardware/software on the system. Last option will be reinstalling a new windows. Hope this will help. Cheers

When my computer start i see the bios info on the screen then the screen gets black


This can be caused by a newly added device or your Video card driver especially if you have done a recent update: try booting your (windows based) computer in 'SAFE MODE' (e.g. Hit F8 while the computer is booting up) and fix Video configuration to something safe first (e.g. VGA 800 X 600.

Hope it helps.

I reboot and The black windows screen works and then a blue screen turns on and just stays there. It says" Microsoft Windows XP


try booting into safe mode:

start up your system and tap on the F8 key.

This may allow you to get into windows and see what the problem is.

click Start-> Run -> type MSCONFIG

in the system configuration window you can disable all startup items and services, restart the PC and see if it works normally.

Then you can turn on a few at a time to find out if something is gumming up your system.

The desktop will not boot up. It's got power and sounds okay but


If you are able to get windows up you can restore it in a earlier time when it was working perfectly, this is if you have the 'restore point' on your pc. Other option if to use 'Last know good configuration'

The Last Known Good Configuration feature is a recovery option that you can use to start your computer by using the most recent settings that worked. The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores registry information and driver settings that were in effect the last time the computer started successfully.

To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.c697747.gif

Black screen on emachine c2881


3 things. If you hit the windows button does the taskbar show on the bottom? Also, right click in the middle of the desktop and click on "Personalize" (Vista) to change the screen saver and see if that fixes your problem. Assuming you can see the "Start" button, do the following: Right click on Start, click Properties, click on the Taskbar tab and make sure the box is checked next to "keep taskbar on top of all windows"

There might be a bios setting that you have too set for the recovery mode. If you can get into the BIOS then check to see if there's a setting for recovery. You can also try at boot up (before the Windows error) to hit Ctrl-F10.

Reboot into Safe Mode by repeatingly tapping on F8 while in process of rebooting and then select "last known good configuration". If that fails reboot again to safe mode and select safe mode with command prompt and in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f /r " <enter>

If that doesnt work do place your Windows CD into the Cd-Rom, reboot and select option "Repair"
