If the System restore, does not work, you may have your pc set to safeboot or safe mode. This would be the reasopn why your ethernet card controller is not working as non of the required graphics or pci drivers will load in safe mode. Check by Start>run, then type 'msconfig' and look at the 'General Tab' and make sure normal or selective boot up radio button is ticked and not the diagnostic start up. Also go to 'Boot.INI' tab and make sure 'Safeboot' is not ticked. Click apply and restart pc.

With most computers there is a black screen with a countdown timer that will select the last known configuration unless you choose something else. This is part of the Bios, I believe. When booting the computer you should see a countdown timer with one of a couple of options for booting. Choose a normal boot and see if that works. If you do not see this countdown timer screen when powering up then you may have to make changes to your Bios (select F8 when booting to get to the Bios menu) so that there is a delay before booting to OS. Just a thought. I agree with the other solution that it is likely the ethernet card does not work because those drivers are not NORMALLY loaded in Safe Mode.

Please remove the pci ethernet controller and restart the pc. If you are using windows xp go to safe mode by pressing f8 and do the following start -> programmer -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore. once the restore starts choose a date you fell your pc worked well and continue. Thats all your sytem restores to that date and try reistalling the pci ethernet cord with suitable drivers. give me feed back

My 531S hangs at the dell splash screen with one short beep before loading windows vista


I would start the computer in safe mode. To do this, keep tapping on the F8 key as you start the computer. Do this as soon as you see anything on the screen. If you get the windows splash screen, you've waited too long. Once you get the white menu on a black screen, choose safe mode and let it start. The next time you do a restart, it should work. If it doesn't, then in safe mode do a system restore back to the time it worked.

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 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 if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work
if you need more help with this or if I have misunderstood the problem post a reply
hope this helps you

Hi,

If this happened after installing IE8, I would suggest you try and start the computer in safe mode and then uninstall. Go to C:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst and double click on spuninst.exe (picture of a computer). This will revert the system back to the previous version of Internet Explorer.

Restart the pc and see if it loads back into windows OK

If this does not fix the issue, go back into safe mode, click on start, run, msconfig. Click on system restore and follow the instructions. This will take you back to a previous point in time so make sure you choose a time when the pc was working.

If you are unable to get into safe mode or the above still does not work, then there may be a corruption in Windows. You would need to think about repairing windows or recovering windows back to the way it was when you bought it with your recovery discs or a Windows XP CD

Hope that helps

My sister's computer starts up and quits. do you think she has a virus


Hi,
if the computer starts and then shuts down, the problem could be a virus or a bad harddrive.
Power off the system and then restart , tap the F8 key couple of times as soon as the computer starts . Select safe mode with networking,check if the computer is able to start in safe mode or not . If the computer is not starting in safe mode aswell. its time to reformat the computer . Install windows on it again

Thanks

Amilo pro v3515 - problem with the screen


Hi,

You friend could be right and you may need to disassemble the laptop screen to check on the inverter cable.

But there is one more thing i would check on first before coming to that conclusion.

There is a slight possibility that it could be the display/video driver that are corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode by restarting the computer and repeatedly press the F8 key as it starts. This should bring up a sub menu with safe mode at the top. Use the cursor keys to highlight safe mode and press enter.
You will see white boot information scroll up the screen, be patient and wait for it to load up.
Click on your account and you will see a message about system restore. You don't want to use system restore so click on yes to work in safe mode.

Right click on My Computer/Computer and click on manage from the list. Then select Device Manager.

Look in the list for display adapters and click on the + or > next to to expand the list. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and it should load up the operating system and reinstall the drivers for the display.

If it won't start/display in safe mode then your friend has hit the nail on the head and it's a faulty inverter or loose inverter cable.


Good luck.
