When you start your colmputer hit the key that gets you into your comps bios, which is typically F1, or del, or F2 and make sure your cd/dvd drive is the 1st in priority in the boot order.

Only boot in safe mode


Safe mode allows the computer to open without loading drivers and start up items we use this for when we have a driver or hunting down a virus or removing a bad application or software install. Not sure what your looking for in your question. I assume that you want a regular normal boot. Keep reading the answers section for this topic there are other ways to get back to normal here............JohnReboot and select normal boot when the screen comes up. Or where the files and other software previously worked. This should get you out of save mode.

It just freezes up when you turn it on,what do you do?


Try booting in safe mode and see if it happens. To boot in safe mode shut the computer completely down...when you turn it on tap the F8 key multiple times and it should take you to an advance boot menu. Choose safe mode or safe mode with networking. If it boots fine that way, you may want to disable some items in your start up. You do this by clicking the start button--> click run--> type the letters msconfig (without spaces) under the startup tab, you may see a whole bunch of stuff check. Uncheck all uneeded software starting up. reboot the machine in regular mode and see if that helps. post back with your findings-

Hangs on startup


Try booting in safe mode then run a chkdisk scan to see if it shows errors. To boot in safe mode power the computer completely down...wait a few seconds...when you power it back up keep tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. If done correctly a black advanced boot screen will appear with a choice to boot in safe mode. If you are able to boot in safe mode, it's likely that your hdd isn't the problem. It has to do with something in your startup programs. To disable some unwanted startup items Click Start--> RUN-> in the box type msconfig then click on the tab that says startup and uncheck any unwanted items. Reboot the machine and see if it boots regular.

When turning the computer on the only thing that happens is a message on the screen saying.. rv515le 102-a771011-00 a12 ddr2 bios 450e/250m channel ab...?


Have you tried safe mode yet? Normally you just keep hitting the F8 key continuously while booting up. It gets you to a safe mode where you might be able to repair the problem using some software you have on your machine.

When I try to forward an e-mail and access my address book, the screen exits. The same thing is happening when I try to click on links on web pages.


Sounds like you could possibly have a virus. Try to boot in safe mode and click on a link in a webpage see what happens. If it works in safe mode check what is starting in msconfig and disable the non-windows apps then try normal mode this would indicate that there is a program causing this issue. You can also check file associations with URLs, open any folder>tools>folder Options>file types check that URL is set to open with IE.

When plugging things into tower everythin freezes


Check inside the port to see if the contacts are not bent, try another network cable.

Also, start the computer in Safe Mode with Networking then plug in the cable.

To start in Safe Mode with Networking
restart computer
tap F8 just after BIOS splash screen (before windows)
select 'Safe Mode with Networking" from the advanced startup menu using the arrow keys.
Things may look weird when windows starts, because it is starting with minimal drivers.

If it seems to OK in safe mode with networking, there is probably some startup item that causes the issue. See this article at capitaltechmd.com on how to troubleshoot startup items.

Good Luck, hope this helps

Start up


try starting the computer normally, this usually happens if you computers power was cut while booting up, its just a small harmless glitch.  As for the returning back to the prompt try running it with command prompt. when you get to the command prompt, type (chkdsk) and let it run this might also fix any other problems that you are not seeing.
