When you boot up, and see the Acer logo, hit ALT+F10 to begin the recovery process. The files you need are stored on a hidden partition on your hard drive. Once the process starts, just follow the prompts, but make sure that you have your files backed up first.

If not, have a PC tech remove the drive and backup your files using an external drive reader before you wipe it and start over.

Configuring updates screen


Try booting up in Safe Mode and see what happens.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it boots up ok, then do a restart into your normal windows mode.


Try running the check disk utility.



To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

My dell inspiron 2200 wont start up..Well it starts up but then it sais "Windows start up has failed." and it gives me options to start up in safe mode with command promt and safe mode with networking...


Boot your PC with the windows OS disk and choose to repair your computer when asked. Run the chkdsk program in DOS on the recover mode to correct disk errors.
On completion, restart your computer normally and check it it works.

If it does not work, you may need to format your pc & reinstall windows again.

When i turn on my laptop it goes to start windows normally or last known good configuration but when i select one it goes right back to start windows normally page again


Insert your OS system disk or recovery disk. reboot computer, boot from DVD, start installation of software, do not repair from the first prompt when asked, click install, once windows searches for previous version of windows click repair. This will reinstall the system folders and straighten out any registry problems. once complete you are done.

Lap top computer


Sounds to me like a windows problem or maybe a driver error. if it boots up in safe mode and it dont boot up in regular mode, one of the drivers that dont have to load in safe mode keeps crashing it. check all startup programs and disable as many as you can
