If computer starts up all the way in safe mode, you have a better chance of salvaging this system.
If not, the hard drive may be crashed (physical damage, scraping oxide from the platters).
Worst case, you would have to replace hard drive and re-install windows and everything else.
Best case, a repair function can be done from a winXP CD that will replace windows files without erasing anything else.

If there is precious data on the hard drive, a data recovery may be in order.
I can provide a reliable and reasonable source for this service if needed.

I have a emachine w3619, i let my son use it and he changed the login password and cant remember it. and i cant figure out how to get into my computor. how do i go about getting into my computor


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

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 the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Laptop turns on then freezes


Shut it off, pull the battery out. Unplug all devices that you might have plugged into the laptop (anything USB, cards, etc).
With the battery OUT, and the power cord unplugged, hold down the power-on button for about 20-30 seconds. Reinstall the battery and/or power cord and then boot the machine into safe mode (hit "f8" white booting on windows operating systems to get into the safe mode menu). Try booting safe mode NO networking (top choice). Still locks up?
Possible issues are
1) Bad or failing HD
2) Failing RAM
3) Virus or drive issues.

Booting into safe mode should allow you to run a virus scan, then clean and defrag the HD and check for resource conflicts or "flags" for issues (control panel, administrative tools, browse until you find "Event Viewer" and click each icon in the drop down field on the left and read the "errors" in red on the right).

We'll need your OS and laptop model number as well as things like wireless devices or anything custom you've done or have installed.

Hi, I have booted the desk top with a Magicjack, from then on the monitor is not displaying any image. Would appreciate if you can give approprate solution


I assume you have windows XP. press F8 before your computer loads windows, and you should enter safe mode, and choose VGA MODE. that should launch your computer in the basic 640x480x60 resolution. If you cannot see this, then you may have a hardware issue on your video card

My computer wont start up


First try pressing F2 at start up to see if you can get to setup. Also pressing F12 may get you a boot menu. If cd is already set as first boot you may get a chance to boot from a Windows cd. The idea here is to get to a minimal Windows configuration like setup or safe mode (F8) to see if this is a hardware or operating system fault. Two common issues with eMachines are power supply problems where repetitive reboots can actually fry the motherboard or if the PC has a few years use the CMOS battery. Steve Medley

Lost my start menu


I am assuming you have windows xp. If not, the solution will be different.

you have to repair explorer.exe.

try this first.
1. Push the button to turn computer on. Wait for one second, then tap F8 repeatedly. Choose safe mode. Click administrator. If it gives you the prompt with 'yes' and 'no' buttons. Click no. Restore the computer and choose a date when the computer was working.

If you get nothing in safe mode, you have to look for your windows xp cd.
and follow the instructions here to repair windows.
I have to warn you that repairing windows may work or may make your windows inaccessible. This is the best option you have though. As a last resort, you need to reinstall windows.
To make the repair work optimally, make sure you use the reinstallation cd for windows xp WITH SERVICE PACK 2. If your xp disc doesn't say service pack 2 on it, you can look for one that does or just use what you have.

When I switch my windows XP Home Edition on instead of the usual gradual build up to Desk Top & icon programmes etc. I get the usual large black screen but instead of the windows motif appearing I get...


The results you are seeing are actually from the monitor itself. It's telling you the vertical and horizontal sync frequencies to help you troubleshoot your lack of display.

You'd usually see this happen when someone has set the resolution too high, and the monitor just can't handle it.

Power up, and keep tapping F8 until you get a Windows boot menu. Choose "safe mode", let it boot to windows. Go to display properties, and then settings. The slider for the resolution will now be right down. (left-most). Click it once, so that the apply button becomes valid. Hit apply and let it restart.

You should now boot to Windows normally, but with a very low resolution. Go back to display settings and bump it up one step at a time, using the apply button. (which will revert back one step if you don't hit "yes" within 20 seconds).

That way, you can find a resolution that looks right, but isn't too high for your screen.

Desk top won't display-hibernation mode


Hi,

Based on your post of failure to boot due to hibernation, you can try removing the battery and AC adapter connection for an hour or so. Thereafter, insert battery back and charge but don't power up. Allow the laptop to charge for a couple of hours. Try powering up/booting. Press F8 to start in Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode disable Hibernation.

If the laptop still fails to power up, then it may be entirely another problem.

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.
