PXE means Pre Boot Execution. It means that the system is trying to boot from network. To solve this, you need to enter bios. You can do this by pressing F2 during startup. Find the section where you can change boot device order and set the first boot device to HDD or CD. save your settings, hopefully your problem will be solved

My laptop turns on then freezes how do i fix this?


The music you have on your computer should have no bearing on your start up problem, this is more likely to be caused by a different area of the system such as a recently installed device or program.

Have your tried starting your computer in Safe Mode - press the F8 function key during the initial boot display and before Windows starts to load.

Further recovery actions will depend on which version of Windows you have installed (XP, Vista or 7).

If you can get into System Restore then you should try restoring the system settings back to a time before this problem started if possible.

If you can't use System Restore but can start in Safe Mode, then download a copy of CCleaner and use this to perform some house-keeping clean-up to get rid of temporary files, clean up registry entries etc as this may help.

If you can't start in Safe Mode then you will need to have access to your Windows installation media (CD or DVD depending on which version of Windows). For Vista and 7 you can try performing a Startup Repair - for XP you may have to do a Repair Install.

My hp laptop dosn't move in configuring 3 of 3 - 0%complete,and then it just switch of and on,and comes back to configuring 3 of 3 k 0% complete


Vista Update Stage 3 Stall……

You see Installing Updates Stage 3 of 3... 0% in Vista after you start or restart your computer and it never goes past 0%. Rebooting the computer doesn't change it. It still boots to Installing Windows updates 3 of 3 and never goes past that 0% mark. Sometimes Windows will even reboot in some cases. I have found that this often happens after Windows updates. I have no idea why, but this seems to be a fairly common occurrence. The last one I repaired was caused by a Service pack 1 installation.

Here's what I have done to fix the 3 of 3 error.

You will be doing a System Restore from the Vista f8 startup

Since the computer your working on is probably stuck on this screen the first step will be a hard shut down.

Hold the power button down until the computer shuts down.

Restart the computer.

Tap the f8 key about once or twice per second to get the Safe mode screen to come up.

In Windows Vista there is a new choice when the safe mode selection comes up. "Repair Your Computer"

Highlight the "Repair Your Computer" choice.

Windows will act like it is going t boot up.

You will see a System Recovery Options window.

It will ask you to choose your language.

Click Next

Select your user and put in your password. (leave blank if you don't have a password)

You should now have choices and the one you want is "System Restore"

Follow through the prompts with the Vista System Restore program.

Remember you should pick a restore point that is 1 or 2 points back.

Once you have completed the system restore process you will be asked to restart your computer. Go ahead and restart the computer. It should start correctly at this point. If you don't have a restore point available you may not be able to repair this error. I have not tried to repair one of these without a restore point yet.

Hp pavillion dv4000 laptop freezes while loading windows and wont finish loading it.. what do i need to do?


I have looked all around and no one has tried the fix that I have just tried. If your laptop freezes until it's moved slightly or you have to apply pressure around the touchpad / memory area it is neither those parts that are causing the problem. The real problem lies beneath. The problem is the southbridge intel chip. I fix Xbox 360's so I know a lot about cold solder points and it seams that HP placed the chip in an unstable area. The southbridge chip over time gets cooked under the plastic and sooner or later has cold solder joints which means it can constantly connect and disconnect its cold solder point. Every time it disconnects your laptop freezes because the flow has just stoped. The answer is to do two things. First you must find some sort of heat obsorbing pad, I had a thermal pad around which I used to fix an Xbox so I used that. I opened the laptop to the point that I could see the chip (make sure you know what your doing when opening your laptop!!!!). Then I just placed the thermal pad on top of it and closed the laptop. The other thing you should do which I can't since I do not have it, but you should use a heat gun in order to reflow the solder between the southbridge chip and the motherboard. The pads may not work entirely because they can sometimes only apply pressure and wont fully recconect the cold solder points below the chip. My laptop is working fine right now with only a couple freeze ups since it is in my lap and I have just applied the fix not to long ago but it would never work in this position before and leads me to the conclusion that it must be the chip. I did not use the heatgun method but if and when I do buy a heatgun I will definitely do so to prevent the very few freezes I still recieve. I hope this helps.

SONY VAIO notebook freezes on xp splash screen every 2-4 mos.


first, ensure your system restore is turned on and make a restore point right now!...assuming you have run a thorough disk check and de-frag. then, trust the system restore. I have used it with success 100% of the 20 or so times I have used it. Next, start using the "Hibernate" power down mode. I have found this to work wonders with third-party driver problems. It seems that once a good startup happens, then freeze it (and continue to get a good startup) with hibernate from then on. Last, check about every month for the quantity of restore points that have taken place automatically by Windows. Sometimes, depending on the size of the hard drive, too many points can begin to encroach on your free space that you want for virtual memory or data. So for example, I see 15 restore points in the last month, I will dlete them all by cancelling system restore. Then I use "clean disk" scandisk and defrag. Then I turn restore back on.
