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

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.

Hi when i satrt up my hp compaq mini 110 it wont load past the bios. it comes up with the options for F9: change boot device order, F10:BIOS setup options, F12: Network boot. if i leave it to laod past...


Check to see if any media is in you CD DRIVE, or any other drive because if BIOS is booting from the CD or other media first, it never gets to your hard drive thus never boots windows. If clear, Press F9 and enter into your BIOS setup. You will have to make sure your boot sequence/order is in order to boot first from the hard drive. If all is in order try F8 hitting it repeatedly until safe mode options appear. If this doesn't work post a reply and we'll go from there.

Dell optiplex 760 won't go into safe mode


It sounds as though your PF keys are disabled by the BIOS settings. Try this:
Upon cold start or reboot get to the BIOS setup. You may have to press F2 or delete, or whatever key the first POST messages instruct you to use. Different BIOS manufacturers use different keys, and you have to be quick to interrupt the boot process using the correct key. If you fail to determine what key it is, reboot once again, until you see/read what key does the job.
Next, once you're into the setup screens, look for a section where you can set/deny access to the F8, F9, F10 etc keys during the boot process.
Make sure you ENABLE them, following the instructions on what keys to use to set/reset these choices. Make sure you SAVE AND EXIT.
On the next reboot, upon the disappearance of all POST messages, make sure you press the F8 key repeatedly until you see your OS boot options menu, among which you'll find Safe Mode.
Good luck!

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.
