Preasrio f557us wont boot past the XP screen


Ram was your best bet on a laptop. But you can load XP onto itself so it reloads without deleting any files. However, if it still may fail. If that happens a clean install is your next step.

Can't reboot starts out li9ke noremal trhen a very quick blue screen and i have to restart the boot process all over againj


I came across this kind of situaiton on my HP laptop (win 7) and ended up with eliminating it with a boot program called BuitSuite and it helped entered my Windows and resolved the program. It seems that there is a system file missing which lead to error loading error when you boot. Hope it will also help in your case, best regards.

HP had blue screen and said it would shut down. Problem is that it does turn off, so that it can be re-booted. Have tried to shut off PC, but continues to come on and not start.


Hold the power button in for 10 to 15 seconds for hard shut down if that doesn't work unplug power for about 5 minutes then plug power back in and see what happens

My laptop won't boot! What should I do?


No power? Blue Screen Of Death? Blinking cursor? Black screen?
Need more info.
For anything other than a BSOD or error message:
Try unplugging from power, remove the battery, hold the power button 30 seconds. Then reinstall battery, plug in, and turn on.
If you are getting something like 'NTLDR not found' or 'Boot Sector not found', Hard disk blah blah blah etc. you might need a new hard drive or to repair errors on your existing one.
For BSOD, try starting in safe mode. If that fails, try using a bootable antivirus disk to remove any viruses or other junk and reboot.
Reply back with more info or results!

Lenovo X60 Laptop blue screen error wont boot up


Try to go into safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you turn on the laptop.

If you get into safe mode then go into system restore and choose a date when the laptop was working properly. Let it rollback to that date and reboot the computer and let it go and see if it goes back into windows.

If you get a blue screen even when trying to go into windows then the operating system is corrupted and you'll need to do a factory restore on the laptop, meaning the hard drive would have to be wiped out and the operating system put back onto the hard drive.

Turns itself off in 15 seconds and then turns itself back on


Most likely problems are overheating or software/hardware error. Most computers are set to reboot in case of an error (blue screen of death). Try booting from a bootable CD and let it sit. If it stays on it means something is wrong with your hardware or software

Windows xp starts twice and on second boot wont load user settings


Does it just sit at a blue screen? Is there only one user profile on this system? It could be a bad user profile in which case you can try logging on as administrator (if that isn't the user account issue). Try taking it into safe mode or last good known boot and see how far you get. If you recently installed something software or hardware then it could be related to the installation.
