Afre? It could be bios issue not recognizing the harddrive correctly therefore writing bad data to it and the data becomes corrupted and unreadable. Updating the bios could fix that...

Could be faulty memory, could be faulty cable plugging the harddrive into the controller. I personally just found a faulty SATA cable in my pc, its been replaced and no probs since.

Could be faulty power supply. I hope this was some help.

Cant flash bios a1410n


Try simple first. When booting, AND BEFORE the XP logo, press f8 repeatedly until you see the boot options menu. If you miss it, you will see the xp loading logo, if so, restart and try again. From the boot menu, try the "boot with last known good configuration" option. If that doesn't fix it, re-boot, f8, and try the "safe mode" option. If it boots with any of these methods, do a full shut down and re-start again normally.
If that doesn't get it to boot normally, I would do the following. (I would, but you should only try this if you have a good understanding of windows and needed programs installing, ram replacement, hard drive repair/replacement and internal computer wiring)
Now, if your computer worked fine, then suddenly started this loop, I dont think it a bios problem. I expect you might have a hardware problem. Did you change any hardware very recently? Sometimes that stops windows from loading. Or, you could try changing the ram and retry, could be bad ram. But I think it is a hard drive issue. I think you will have to reload windows and/or replace the hard drive.
To safeguard your info, you should replace the main hard drive with another drive, load windows fully on it, then add the original drive back in as a slave/secondary drive, and retreive your personal info and files from it. Your needed programs will have to be re-installed on the newer windows drive. When you get all your files copied over (use copy and paste, not cut and paste), you can format the old drive and use it as storage, or just format and keep for the next time, or sell it. I would also run a "drive fitness program" to test it for bad sectors.
Or, if you dont need anything from your windows, you could format and install from the xp install cd. If it loads and runs, the drive is probably ok (I would still test it for bad sectors), or, if it cant load because of errors, the drive is probably bad. Retry with a new drive.

My computer starts, but it is soo slow. and when the deskyop does load up, i cant click on anything. and hwne i can it doesnt actually do anything. i want to restore faxctory settings but i have no discs


You have something hogging your PC resources and or a virus.

To start. Start the PC but before it starts to load windows press the F8 key to get the pre-boot menu. Select Safe Mode and it will boot into windows with only the core functions running.

Go to control panel add/remove programs and remove all uneccessary programs. You should also try and keep 10% of your hard drive space free.

Go to run and type in msconfig then press enter
Go to startup tab and untick all unneccesary items.

Go back to Run and type chkdsk/f
This will force a full check disk and fix after restarting.

Once you can boot into windows even if it is still slow, ensure you have a good antivirus. You can get a avast home for free from www.avast.com
Install this and run a full system scan.

Then download Spybot Search and Destroy from www.download.com and install, select immunize and then, update and do a full scan which could take a while if you have loads of files.

Then do windows updates.

After most things, right click on My Computer and properties, then system tools and then deframent, run a degragment on C drive and then all other hard drives.

The whole process is probably going to take you around 2 days withthe scanning and defragmenting.

Alternatively if you have backups of your data, you can format your drive do a clean re-install of Windows Operating System.

System recovery not working


If you have windows xp, here is what you can do>>
This is called a "system recovery" (destructive)
I do not have the disk either. My windows XP, was already loaded on my computer, when I bought it. These instructions, will clean everything off of your hard drive, so you must back up anything that you want to save. I have done this three times, and I got these instructions, from a computer tech. When starting your computer, tap the F-10 key. click on next-yes-and follow the instructions, that come up on your screen. When you are finished, your computer, will look just like it did, when you first bought it. Do these steps, in order, when finished.
1. set up windows firewall
2. windows update (click express)
3. install your anti-virus program (update)
4. install anti-spyware (update)
5. Install service pack 2...Good Luck..
All your drivers etc. will reload on your computer, without a disk. All this information is stored on a hidden partition .. Good Luck

Lost everything on my laptop as soon as i open it


I dont think you lost everything. Do you see any green power lights and do you hear the normal hard drive and fan sounds when booting up ? If you do and still wont boot up to Windows then reboot and keep tapping on F8 to safe mode and select "last known good configuration". You can also perform system restore.

If you dont hear anything at all, no power and you dont see any green power lights then you may have to plug into another known good power outlet. check that your power connections (including the power adaptor) are secured and if on a strip power off and on. If that doesnt work, try another power adaptor. If those doesnt work
remove the laptop battery and just plug in the adapter.

If youre concern about your personal files you can always take out the hard drive, piggyback it to another hard drive on a known good PC and retrieve the files.

Computer restarts on own and thats all it does.


This is almost always a failed hard drive, however, it can sometimes be a corrupt operating system. Start by trying to reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive won't format, or if you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Gigabyte GA 8GP NXP DUO


Hi, A couple of possibilities/things to try: 1. After reset & remove battery, go to the CMOS/BIOS setup and load default configurations; 2. "...loading windows ... screen goes black..." are you installing a fresh clean Windows or are you using an image/recovery of your old Windows. If it's an image/recovery, it is possible and very likely that the OS is no longer recognizing the motherboard as the old motherboard because of the BIOS update. Perhaps you should try a clean fresh install. 3. try booting in to a simple bootable diskette/CD of FreeDos or Dos 6.2 or variants, just to check if the motherboard will finish POST and BOOT. Post back that we can figure out other possibilities or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help to you. Good luck and kind regards.
