Most likey a Windows fill of some sort is corrupted. The best solution would be to just reformat the computer and lose all data.

Alternatively you could use a Linux Live CD to boot from the CD-ROM and access the hard-drive to perhaps save any documents. If you don't know how to do this yourself I'd recommend carrying it to a facility that is fluent in computer support. Try a local college's IT Department.

Dell inspiron one touch screen stuck in diagnostic mode


HI,
You were correct in pressing ctrl+f11 but perhaps you did not press at the correct time. If in following these first two steps you do not get the recovery console, it may not have been installed on your computer.

1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, clickRestore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlightRestore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
Thanks.

Compaq dx2000 mt freezes on startup


Boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot and...
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Why won't my compaq presario 1250 load windows?


1 - You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


2 - Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Hi there! Try this out... Turn off the computer. Turn it on then start pressing f8 it should direct you over a screen selection with safe mode as part of the selection. Select safe mode it should load up now if it doesn't re do the first process we did now this time on the selection select the one that says disable automatic restart then once you have selected that it will show you what's causing the computer to restart.



Hope this helps!

Your OS is corrupted.
Turn on the computer and start tapping F8.
That will get u in to the advanced boot options.
Try last known good configuration.
If that doesn't help, try getting in to safe mode.
While that loads it will ask whether u want to start system restore.
Start system restore and restore the computer back to a previous date when the computer was working fine.
If that also doesn't work, u will have to reinstall the operating system.

Endless chkdsk /r loop


Sounds like you have a seriously corrupt hard drive. I am afraid the only way to fix this is to replace the hard drive.

Good Luck!

My xps i don't come on when you boot up the CD light comes on for a second and then all I get is a black screen


When you boot up hold down the F8 button on your keyboard until you see start up options then click on start up repair
  • Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that might prevent Windows from starting. Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer has preinstalled recovery options, it might also be stored on your computer's hard disk. For more information, see Startup Repair: frequently asked questions and What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista? If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
  • Change restart settings in safe mode. If your computer is stuck in a loop where Windows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. For more information, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).
  • Reinstall. If no other options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean) installation of Windows will permanently delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies. For more information, see Installing and reinstalling Windows‌.

It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Toshiba laptop when desktop is loading screen flashes and starts over again every 10 seconds


If this happens consistently, there is probably a Blue Screen occurring that is too fast for your eye to see.

Immediately after the Toshiba splash goes away, start pressing F8 until the startup options menu shows. Choose Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should allow you to see the error. then re-post with all details including the error code numbers. Then you can get help for the underlying problem.
