Can you boot into safe mode?
To do this press F8 (repeatedly) straight after the bios screens during the first part of the boot process. If you see the windows logo you have missed it and you will need to start again.

Depending on your opperating system you will get different options.

Did you recently install new software or drivers or hardware that may have caused this problem?
If so try the option "Last Known Good Configuration"

If that doesn't work reboot again and choose "safe mode"
Let us know if safe mode works and normal mode does not.


Let us know what happens and how far it gets through the boot process.
The more information the better.

How to get off safe mode


Step 1
Getting out of Safe Mode may be both easy and complicated at the same time. The primary consideration is the reason why the machine is booting into this status. If it was user initiated, the easiest way is to click on the 'Start' button and select the 'Turn Off Computer' option.
Step 2
This will bring up the window with the 'Standby', 'Turn Off', and 'Restart' options. Choose either 'Restart' or 'Turn Off'. Upon rebooting or powering up of the machine, the Operating System should automatically load into Normal Mode. Take note that some users are misled into believing that the system is in Safe Mode primarily due to the incorrect setting of the video. If the system is in Safe Mode, it should be stated at the corners of the screen.
Step 3
If the system keeps on rebooting on Safe Mode, this is a possible indication of a problem in loading startup components. Reboot the machine.
Step 4
During the reboot process, press the 'F8' key to display the boot-up options. In this window, select the 'Last Known Good Configuration' option. The Operating System will attempt to locate the last settings that successfully loaded the Operating System.
Step 5
If still unsuccessful, allow the machine to boot into Safe Mode. Click on the 'Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' option.
Step 6
Click on the 'Performance and Maintenance' category and click on the 'System' icon. This should open the System Properties window.
Step 7
Click on the 'Hardware' tab and click on the 'Device Manager' button. Check for any exclamation or question mark beside any entry. Reload the corresponding device driver for the erroneous component. Repeat Step 2; this should boot the system in Normal Mode.
Step 8
If the computer system entered Safe Mode via the System Configuration utility, then it can only boot in Normal Mode using the same tool. Click on the 'Start' button and choose 'All Programs'. Click on the 'System Tools' category and select the 'System Information' option.
Step 9
From the new window, click on the 'Tools' Menu and select 'System Configuration Utility'. Under the 'General' tab, select the 'Normal Startup' option.
Step 10
Click on the 'OK' button and restart the machine as described in Step 2. This will load the system in Normal Mode.

How to remove Multiboot Option in Windows


If under various circumstances you had to install a second Windows OS on the same system, you should have already met the dual boot option. It will pop up before booting the system permitting the user to select which OS will boot.

Boot.ini, the house of the dual boot option Boot.ini is a system file found in the system root. Because it has a major importance for the booting process.so we have to edit this boot.ini file to remove multiboot popups.

How to edit Boot.ini

1.Go to Start Click on Run
2.Type msconfig.

Once the system configuration window pops up, you will notice that Boot.ini has its own tab. Select that tab and where you see "timeout," set it to a lower or higher value. Remove/Add Operating Systems in the dual boot menuThis is the main issue.

Step 1:Right click on My Computer icon and select Properties.

Step 2:From the properties window go to Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings.

Here, you can both edit the timeout value and modify the Boot.ini file by clicking Edit. If you remove the second operating system from Boot.ini, the dual boot option won't appear before booting.

Gateway zx4800 MBR is corrupt..error code = 0 x 57...too, need to know correct boot sequence


Windows installation CDs and DVDs have a number of system repair and recovery tools included that can get almost any computer back on its feet after a bad crash or faulty operating system installation. One very common problem that comes up when installing a second operating system is a corrupted Master Boot Record, or MBR. Windows System Recovery has tools that can fix a corrupted MBR, but if you don't have an installation CD or CD drive to put it in, you're going to need to copy the recovery materials to another medium, like a USB drive. If your MBR is corrupted, you probably don't have access to your Windows installation, so you'll have to follow most of these steps on another computer.
b> Insert the USB drive into another computer and run a command prompt window by typing "cmd" into the search box of the "Start" menu and hitting "Enter." Enter "mkdir X:\boot," and "mkdir X:\boot\sources" where X is the drive letter of your USB drive. Type "cd" and press the "Tab" key once, then hit "Enter." Enter "xcopy /H boot.sdi X:\boot," "xcopy /H Winre.wim X:\sources\boot.wim," "xcopy /H c:\windows\boot\dvd\pcat\bcd X:\boot," "xcopy /H c:\windows\boot\dvd\pcat\en-US\bootfix.bin X:\boot," and "xcopy /H c:\windows\boot\pcat\bootmgr X:\" to copy the necessary files to the USB drive. Enter "attrib -r -s -h /s X:\*" Enter "diskpart" to run the DiskPart program, then enter "list disk." The window lists the drives connected to your computer. Find your USB drive in the list and enter "select disk X", where X is the letter of your USB drive. Enter "list partition" to see the partitions on the drive and then "select partition X," where X is the number of the partition listed. Insert the USB drive into your computer and turn the computer on. Allow it to boot from the USB drive. You may have to set your USB drive as a primary boot drive in the computer's BIOS first. Enter your computer's BIOS (by tapping Delete or F2 during bootup, on most computers), then put your USB drive at the top of the "Startup" list. Go to the "Startup Repair" option in the "System Recovery Options" window. The "Startup Repair" process should correct your Master Boot Record and allow Windows to boot normally again. You will probably lose access to any other operating systems installed on your computer, though, since this recovery option is only designed to get Windows working again.
Hope this helps.
