Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

I have installed Windoows 7 on my Dell OptiPlex GX620 but the audio drivers is not installed


I would try these two steps. 1. Open Internet Explorer and go to google and search for "Download VLC Player". Look for the site www.videolan.org/vlc and click it to go download vlc. VLC is a powerful open source media player that plays things the normal windows media player cannot handle. It's completely safe and it's faster to install and operates smoothly. It also copies down all the audio drives and codec that it needs. I have seen times that once it is installed, windows media player audio starts working properly too. I step one does not give you sound try step two. 2.Click Start and right above it you will notice a search box where you should type in "create a restore point". Click Create a Restore Point and follow it to create yourself a fail safe method of restoring you computer back to this point of just before you tried fixing the audio drivers. Give the restore point a name such as "I created this". Don't worry about a date and time, the system will automatically attach date and time. Once you've created a restore point open Internet Explorer and go to google and search for "Dell Support". Look for drivers and downloads and select the option to Choose from a List of Products. Your product will be Desktop/Dell Optiplex GX620. Once you've entered everything correctly you will see the drivers for the GX620. I looked and there are no Windows 7 Drivers loaded so that tell me that the Audio Driver for your previous operating system before you loaded windows 7 might be compatible. Select your previous operating system and then download and install the Audio Driver. If you have problems you can click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. When system restore opens up if the restore point that you created is not shown look for Selecting Additional Restore Points so that you can find the one you created. Select it and sit back and be patient while windows restores your system. *** You only need to restore if your system is going crazy on you.

When i start my pc, it starts well but a page appers telling me to start windows normally. when i click on that then windows starts loading bt after 2 sec the systems gets restarted.


1.You have to do a diagnostics test on your hard drive to check if the there are any bad sectors developed on the hard drive!

2. If your system restart, when you just click your mouse, your system files are probably corrupted and your may have to reinstall the system ie. provided your hard drive has no errors.

Here is an option you can try.
Can you boot your system to "safemode"? & Use the "Dos Prompt" to do a "Check Disk" on your System. ie Run -> "CHKDSK /f/r" (without quotes)

Hope it helps.

My Toshiba laptop satellite running windows xp isn't booting at all,it stops and gives me a message that windows didnt start successfully a recent change in s/w or h/w might have coursed this.


Hi friend, As you have mentioned that the laptop is not booting up, in that case what i would recommend is that as soon as you turn on the system press the key "F8" to get into the Advanced Boot Options menu.
In that menu select the option "Last Known good Configuration" and wait if it works or not.
Otherwise,
In the same menu select the option " Safe Mode" If it boots up into the windows try the following steps to restore the system to previous date
1) Click on Start 2) Goto All Programs 3) Select Accesories > System tools> System Restore 4) In the new window select the option "Restore the system to previous date" 5) Select Next and you will see some restore points created. 6) Select the latest restore point that is a week before 7) Click Next 8) System Restore will start 9) Follow the instructions and restart the system in normal mode that is without pressing F8 this time.

go to advanced option by tapping f8 while starting the computer, go to disabled automatic restart, now this time onwards if it crash again it will tell u the err , then u can talk abt the resolution. by the time u can do a system restore.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.

Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.
