Maybe an HardDisk issue, find the model of your HardDisk then download the diagnostic tools from the manufacturer internet site to test it.

Windows 8 error code 0xc000000e


Hi I have this error code 0xc000000e windows 8, You get three options,
1. Enter to retry
2. Press F8 for start up settings
3. press F9 for to use a different operation system.
First two options do nothing, F9 will restart computer, and the I can boot from the boot disk. I have tried to rebuild the startup files, from the disk nothing is working. I can't get into the Safe mode. Guess only option is save all files to a back up HDD, I even tried to restore to a past date.

Unable to restore


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell what file has been corrupted or missing you might be able to work your way through problem if you are unable to find a solution

restart back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time
click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option

hope this helps you

How do I adjust the screen brightness?


Hi,

Press and hold fn button on your keyboard, then press F7 to decrease brightness and F8 to increase brightness. That is Fn + F7 or F8.

If F7 or F8 doesn't work try F6 or F9.

Or you can just start from F1 to F9. One of these buttons certainly would work.

Regards.

It wont boot


A Windows file is corrupt.

The 900HD comes with a bootable disc when bought as new. This is the only way you can restore the unit.

To check if F9 is working, go into BIOS by pressing F2 at start up and turn off boot booster and try again.

With a usb dvd drive, you can use a windows install disc and go into the recovery console and do chkdsk /r to see if that will sort things

To invalidate your warranty, you could remove the hard drive and slave it to another pc and run chkdsk /r on it to see if that works. If you don't know how to do this, take it to a repair shop.

is your hard drive full it sounds like it ok reboot your pc hold the delete button and you will be in the bios find your boot sequence and make your cd rom the first then hard drive second and 3rd and 4th what ever you want then put in you cd save and quit your bios and it will ask you if you want to boot off the cd you say yes if this does not work hold the f8,f9,f10 till you see a screen that says you can boot in safe mod do that and if your hard drive is full try deleteing some larg files or do a disk clean up right click your hard drive click go to the bottom of the list and look for tools and do a disk clean up i hope this helps

Hp 9695c wont boot only ht HP banner shows but wont go to the initialization


Press and hold down Shift key, when you hear the beep, until system boots.
If you dont time it right you will get a keyboard error, dont worry, just press F1 key and immediately hold your Shift key again.
Your system should boot into basic mode, then you need to check your system for virus or last software that may have been installed.
