Try running it in safemode and if you have recently added any new hardware or software that may be causing your problem uninstall it while you are in safemode.

As the computer boots press F8 to enter safe mode. If this is successful then everything on the screen will look big, ignore that for now. uninstall anything that may be causing the problem. If you have not loaded anything lately, then while in safe mode restore your computer to an earlier date when you know that everything was working okay.

You can do this by going to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Then choose a date when you know that things were okay and press restore. You computer will restore to the date you selected and it will reboot. If asked to whether you want to start windows normally after the boot then select that option.

I hope this helps

Hi, sounds to me that you are having a software problem. When you boot the laptop choose the Last know good configuration option to see if that will correct the problem.

Laptop wont even attempt to load windows??


With this kind of problem, you must put in the Windows software disk and boot. Then select repair Windows from the list. This option will attempt to correct the problem.
If you do not have the disc, boot into the repair / diagnostic mode from the boot screen. See if there is an option to create boot disks.

When you boot up your computer, press the F8 key until you get some choices such as Safe Mode and Command Prompt. There will be an option for Last Known Good Configuration. Select this and hopefully it will restore your computer settings to the way it was before this happened.

You will need to buy or borrow a windows setup cd and then repair the installation with the windows setup. That should solve the problem.

If you don't own windows you can buy a copy of the version you want to use from
