Question about PC Desktops

I turned off my laptop by pressing the power button and now the laptop will not restart. It goes to a screen that says "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this." It has options (Safe Mode, Start windows normally...) But it always goes back to the same screen...

How to Restart my Computer?


if by restart you mean reboot you may unplug the computer from the wall. plug it back in and press the power button for reboot, or if its a laptop press the power button for 3 seconds until it shuts down then turn it back on, if you mean reinstall operating system you need to specify which operating system you are using and the version of it, for instance Windows 10 allows you to "Restart" computer to "like new" by turning off the computer, turn it back on pressing F8 and follow the instructions on the screen.

Hello, i broke the screen on my laptop wanting to switch it to my desktop monitor but for some reason it wont switch over. unfortunately since i cant see the screen i cant get into my startup menu any...


First, disconnect the laptop from the ac adapter and take off the battery and the memory. Press the reset button on your laptop. Connect your ac adapter only and press the power button two or three time while everything else is disconnected. Then, re-install your memory and your battery. Connect the ac adapter to the laptop and to your power source. Now turn on your laptop and see if you get a display on your laptop screen. If you do, then you have reset everything and you are back to where you started. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

    How do I reboot my acer laptop with my copy disk?


    When turning your laptop on, before Windows starts booting, a splash screen appears first (usually with the logo of the manufacturer). Look on the splash screen (usually at the bottom) for a key (usually F10 or F11), assigned for System Recovery CD/DVD with the laptop. or 1.Press the start button from the start menu depending on your operating system(win 2000,xp) 2.Press Ctrl+Alt+delete combination from the keyboard. 3.If you have a power button on your laptop keyboard,it could also be useful by pressing and hold it down for few seconds N.B: "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot or shutdown. Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up. Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot. Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately. Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually. A few seconds should do unless you have additional problems.

    All the Best!

    You can only do a system restore if you can boot into safe mode. If you do not have Dell rescue discs then you need to reinstall your OS and you would need an OS disc for that.

    Do you not have other options like pressing F5 or6 during boot?

    Lap top turns on, however Windows will not start. It keeps going the the "We apologize for the inconvenience,..." choose how you want to restart.


    Hi Lisa,
    Somehow you have activated the startup sequence request in the msconfig utility. Start up your laptop, press F8 till you come to the boot sequence options menu, select Safe Mode, hit ENTER wait, then when in safe mode, a warning wndow appears just informing you that you have started in Safe Mode ... bla bla bla... Click OK. Then press start button, go to Run.. and in the dialogue box type msconfig and hit ENTER. In the msconfig utility window check on the dot next to Normal Startup - Loda all device drivers & services. Click apply & Ok then Restart your unit. I think this should solve your problem.

    You probably have the "go to sleep" timeout set too low. Check out "Power Options" in the control panel.
