Find the reset button on the bottom of the laptop and push it with a paper clip that is straightened out.
this should bring back. if this does not work, find your system restore disk to restore and if the restore has repair setup use that so you don't lose your data

Restart laptop and it fails to boot up


Have you tried hitting "esc" key repeatedly once you start the computer? This or the F11 key should take you to the black screen that lets you select to reboot in safe mode etc.
If it does, toggle down to the start in safe mode, let it boot up, then shut down. After shutting down, I have been able to reboot computer into normal mode.
Hope this helps.

Hi, My Samsung R580 I3 JBB2-US keeps on shutting down. If I close the lid when I re-open it shuts down & I have to restart or it freezes and I have to force restart. Sometimes when I boot up it...


Hi,
You can try go to Start - Control Panel - Power Options and check what you want computer do when you close the lid of your laptop. Fix that and restart laptop to apply the setting.
If the boot up not complete and restart by itself, in my opinon, there is something wrong on the start up process, could be hardware malfuctions, could be a software not compatible. Try check the start up process to see.(use Start- Run: msconfig)
If this happen often, you should call the Samsung customer services to find out. Laptop i3 should still under warranty.

Hope this will help.
Thanks for reading

Shut your computer all the way down. As soon as you turn it on, start hitting F8 about 3-4 times, that will take you to an advanced options menu. Select "Last known good configuration" and that should work

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 doesn't come out of hybernation


Turn the PC on, when it is booting up, keep hitting "F8" until windows boot options come up, choose "Safe Mode" and then once it boots into safe mode fully, go to the start menu and choose shut down. After it shuts down, turn it back on and it should go back into normal mode. From now on, don't use Hibernate, its buggy and has been since XP.

My computer restarts continuously


From another computer, download Glary Utilities and save the installation on a flash drive. Boot your system into safe mode by pressing F8 before you see the Windows Starting screen (while still seeing black), use arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode". Once it's booted into Safe Mode, install Glary Utilities and do the one button fix. That may solve the problem. I suspect you have a virus. Alternatively, once in Safe Mode, do a system restore (Clicking: Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore), and pick a date to restore to the is before the date the problem appeared. Get a good AV program like AVG (free.grisoft.com)
