Question about Medion md40298 Notebook
When i turn the laptop on it goes straight to the b/w screen for starting up in safe mode, and which ever option i take the laptop goes to a black screen with a bar across the bottom(i think this is the window when vista is supposed to kick in, its a rectangle with 4 or 5 green stripes going along from left to right) as if it is trying to start up but never does.
any help would be much appreciated tia john
When you press F8 repeatedly, you should be given the option of starting up in Safe Mode. And you would want to go to the first option, no networking or any other choices, just go to the basic Safe Mode. Then you should be given the option of going to the last working restore point or continue in Safe Mode, and you should choose the last working restore point.
If you still cannot start in Safe Mode, are there any beep codes you get before it stops and locks?
Also, if you cannot boot up in Safe MOde, have you tried to boot up with a system restore cd? When you bought your laptop, you should be given a Vistas Reinstall cd with your laptop, so if you would find it and get that out, or if you made a restore cd, use the cd to start your laptop. Then try to check for errors and fix the damage.
If the disk is functioning slower than usual after the restore, defrag your laptop.
Give those a try, and if it still doesn't boot up, let me know what error messages you receive. Thanks

1. Reboot your computer.
2. Press F8 repeatedly on the very first screen you'll see after turning the system on.
3. Select "Repair Your Computer"
4. Hit Next on the keyboard layout
5. Select your account name and enter password
6. On the Recovery Options, select Startup Repair
If that doesn't resolve the issue:
Repeat steps 1-5 above. Then select System Restore instead. Restore the system back to a date where you think it was working fine.
