Unable to boot up

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.

My go clever quantum 1010N does not get past the boot up loading screen. you turn the power on it goes to a white screen that says loading and goes no further, why?


Booting into safe mode usually indicates a problem with the machine. When powering it on, keep punching F8 for the "Safe Mode" boot option window and try choosing "Last good Configuration". You might try Restoring it back to before this started. Click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and then System Restore.

Do you see the cursor blinking in the black screen?
Try booting to safe mode. Restart your computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode and hit enter. Once you are inside safe mode, install RadarSync and scan your computer with it then update the outdated drivers.

My hp mini 1000 wont boot up. when i turn it on it goes right to a screen that asks how i want to start up windows ( safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts, and start windows...


hi blinkgirl556

was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.

hope this helps
contact me for any updates

As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.
