Xp wont boot up

I have a hp laptop. I was in the middle of defraging my hard drive and the computer froze. I hard booted the computer and now it wont bring up the windows screen. I can hit f12 and then hit f8 sometimes I can access the boot options I have tried to boot up in safe mode and in another mode but it wouldn't work. I am just tring to access my files so I don't lose them. It would be a good thing. Any ideas?

You need to try to do an inline repair of windows. Please refer to this web address http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315341/ As long as your hard drive is ok this should get you back into windows with your data intact

Toshiba qosmio f45 av411 laptop wont boot from windows xp disc trying to reformat the hard drive.


Providing the computer posts (shows an image when powered up), Enter the CMOS/BIOS by tapping the DELETE (DEL) key. Therein, make sure the optical drive (CD/DVD Drive) is set to boot before the hard drive (HDD). Look for something like boot order, etc.

I was surfing the internet and the laptop froze. So, I held the power button to shut it off and restart it. When I restarted it didn't boot all the way. It was does the opening screen, and then goes black....


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or you might try
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

once you have your computer running

try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to recover bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

hope this helps good luck

I have an HP zd7000 laptop that wont boot up - was doing a defrag before it went down. Here a clicking sound for part Conexant AMC20493 Just want to get info off of hard drive


I've found that for data recovery of a nonformatted hard drive, It helps to try Puppy Linux. (I prefer version 4.1.2) Burn the .iso image from their website using an iso burning program, and place it into your PC first thing during bootup. Once booted, you should be able to transfer all your files to an external hard drive, or series of DVDs,

I must have done this about a dozen times for people.

Hard Drive won't boot Windows


yes.. because the booting information and booting files are sored only in active primary partition of a hard drive. i.e primary drive. if you remove the primary it wont recognize the OS with out booting information. you should need to reinstall OS.

Laptop startup problem


There are several possibilities here. Hardware like the hard disk drive or operating system problems and hopefully that's all it is. I'm assuming all are running XP with all the upgrades. The F8 key while booting XP will give you the option of starting in the SAFE MODE. In this environment open your web browser and go to TOOLS, INTERNET OPTIONS, DELETE. Ignore all warnings and delete all files and delete all cookies. Reboot.
On reboot see if XP will boot normally. If not reboot ad enter the safe mode again. Either way go to 'start' 'all programs' 'accessories' 'defrag' and run 'defrag'. reboot and hope all is well. If you are able to get through these processes and there are still problems along the way it would seem that there is either a hard drive problem or a corruption of the XP operating system. Your computer willl need expert hands on advice.

Windows xp keeps failing


check the bios and see what the boot order is for the boot devices. Hard disk 0 should be listed after the cdrom drive. this problem you are having might occur if the hard drive is down the list in the boot order, and not checked as being a valid boot device.
