I have a toshiba A305-S6905 with- VISTA!! - sorry. New computer was working fine, now when i try to power it up i will get the toshiba screen and hthen it just goes blank. Tried f2 f8 and f12 along with C...

If this is new, I would suggest pulling your hard drive and letting the factory take care of it. It's a shame your having this type of issue with a new system.

Lets try something first though. Boot the laptop with your vista disc in it and hit any key when it tells you to. After windows loads, it should give you options, choose repair startup. This is of course if you performed this right. The computer is not going to give you a alot of time to choose when it says hit any key to boot from cd, so watch close. As soon as you see the Toshiba screen tap F12, this will bring up a one time boot order change menu, arrow down to the cd/dvd drive and select it by hitting enter, the computer will reboot and will try to boot from the cd. This is where you have to be watching for the hit any key message. If you get to the point where windows is loading files off the cd, there may be hope we can take care of this here. First try to repair the start....reboot and let the computer reboot without the disc....if it does not do it all again and this time choose to restore the computer to another time and pick a day or two before the problem. choose ok and let the laptop reboot and restore. See if it will reboot onits own, if it does, great.....if not get back to us.

Trying to do a factory restall of Dell demnension 2400

typically you don't need to press ctrl at all -- usually f11 does the trick -- or going into accessories and system tools and looking for factory restore or something similar, the program has different names depending on the manufacturer. System Restore will only bring it back to a previous date...

Acerpowerfh keeps turning on and off rebooting why?

it does sound like a boot virus problem. you need to boot into system restore. to boot from the restore partition you need to switch on your pc and repeatedly press either F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Alt+F11. you do this until you see the system restore starts. you will be able to fix windows, or you can do a desturctive restore and restore your pc back to factory settings, but you'll loose your photos and anything saved on the hard drive.

I want to restore the factory settings on my fujitsu siemens amilo Li2727 laptop. i cant find any options to allow me to do this. please help.

You may restore it to its original settings by opening the configuration menu. Usually, this can be accessed by booting your computer while pressing F2 or delete, depending on your computer's model. It will bring you to the configurations menu. Look for the "restore to default setting", highlight using your arrow keys and press Enter, press Esc and go to the exit menu using the tab or arrow key, select save settings and exit. Reboot your computer.

My comp is missing the startup files and i am missing bigfix programs how do i get the setup cds or dvds for the emachine i have now?

If system restore does not fix your computer, then you have hardware problems (overheating, faulty memory or CPU, or some other component). Start by looking at those possibilities.

To restore to origionalfactory settings

Are you getting registration errors or are you getting registry errors . If you are getting registration errors then you can call up the microsoft activation helpline and they would guide you through the registration process. if you are talking about registry errors then its something about the hard drive being faulty. so try to do a format reinstall. If you need more detailed help. write back. Thanks Ashish.
