What does the blue screen say? Normally, there is a STOP ERROR or something like that. You might also look for any text in ALL_CAPITAL_LETTERS_WITH_AN_UNDERSCORE_BETWEEN_WORDS -- like that. Follow up with that information and you're much more likely to get a good solution.

How to skip logo and long boot sequence


That is booting directly into XP. The Windows XP logo that you stare at for a few minutes is actually hiding a whole lot of back end system checks. Without the logo you would be looking at a blank screen. There is a difference in load time, but it's about 2 seconds.

Emachines 180 desktop reinstalling windows xp


Your trying to reinstall Windows XP from cd on your emahcine computer and from what I understand part of the way through the installation of XP you recieve a blue screen? Am I correct?
If so then their can be a couple of things wrong here.
One your cd drive is not reading the cd correctly try cleaning the lense on your cd drive or change the drive and use a different drive. Second your Windows XP cd is bad, screatched or smudged. Try cleaning your cd or make a copy of it on a friends machine and use the new one. If you tried all of these and you are still getting the blue screen repost for more help.

Thanks

My screen goes black after startup


Try a different monitor, I am sure this sounds overly simplistic to you but, I have seen in my customers have just that, a bad monitor.

If another monitor does the same thing, then you should try another video card. If the video in on the motherboard, there should be a AGP, PCI-e, or an empty PCI slot to put a video card in.

I have a Gateway 3520 laptop. I formatted the hard drive and installed XP on the drive. After powering on the laptop. You see Windows XP logo and when the hard drive tries to boot I see a blue screen...


Do this:
Start the computer in safe mode.
If it starts OK, then click on Start and Run and then type in msconfig.
In the next window go to the startup tab (upper right of the window).
When the tab opens, at the lower right, click on disable all.
Now restart the computer normally.
If you had a bad motherboard, it would not start in safe mode.
One of the items that showed up in the startup tab is causing the problem. You can run msconfig when running normally and enable the things one by one until you find the one causing the problem.
Oh--BTW--after running msconfig, when you start Windows, you will get a message saying the the utility had been run. You have to click the little box at the lower left of the window, or it will throw you right back into the configuration.

Gateway desktop xp starts then flashes blue screen for split seco


Sometimes they make the recovery disk with windows on it, but not the programs that start windows during the boot up phase. One of the three main files that boots into windows is corrputed or your Master Boot Record is missing. There are two options you can try without the OS disc so lets see if one of those will work: 1) boot up and press F8 to enter safe mode. Once in safe mode sometimes you can also get into window because just the minimum of the program is loaded. F8 Safe Mode>in windows>click start>accesories>system tools>system restore. It will allow you to restore your computer to a prior date before you have problems. 2)if that don;'t work then F8 safe mode and while in safe mode choose Last Known Configuration. Kinda works the same way as restoe but you don't have to be in windows to do it. If those don't work then get your hands on a windows xp disc, anyone's will do, don't have to be yours. Let me know how it goes.
Rate this solution. You can also find out about this at support.microsoft.com>help and support>type in Windows XP boot disk in the search engine.If those don't work let me know and we'll move on to phase II.

Can not find restore disk


Did this problem just happen out of the blue? Were you using it and suddenly the PC just up and went belly-up? If so, it sounds like you may have bigger problems than merely a Windows problem. If you don't even see the eMachines logo at bootup before the Windows logo, then something more serious, like a motherboard issue, is your problem. Post back with more specifics, but if you don't see anything at all at booting, like any text or logo or anything, then at the very least the integrated ATI video isn't working. The solution then is either get it fixed with a new motherboard or buy a new one. As this particular model is >1 year old, it won't be under warranty, hence more expensive than it's worth.

On the other hand, did you make any hardware changes that you didn't mention? If so, post back with details.

Windows Installation Lock-up


I would re-do the re-install. It didn't finish .. It isn't complete. It is always a good idea to have nothing and I mean NOTHING attached to your computer when doing an install/re-install except monitor, keyboard and mouse. Was the GeForce in it originally (not that it really matters)

Windows not loading


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Whenever Microsoft Windows XP is installed on a system, the OS is binded to the motherboard, specifically to the chipsets. I am assuming that when you replaced the motherboard, the OS was not reinstalled and it was still binded to the original Dell Dimension board, most likely an Intel 925X Express chipset. When the OS started to load, it could not find the original 925X chipset and instead finds itself confronted with Biostar VIA P4M900/VT8237A chipsets which is an unknown, hence the BSOD.

You could try:
  • boot from CD drive with an XP installer and use the second repair option;
  • boot into Safe Mode (F8) and try to uninstall the Intel devices entries (except the CPU) and allow the system to auto detect (if it will) the new hardware;
  • backup your files and perform a fresh/clean install on the new motherboard.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
