    Car you start up in safe mode? (Pressing F7 while booting) If you can then there is a software conflict in your windows start up files.

    Not easy to fix but it can be fixed.

Samsung v5 wont start up

Setup? Why is it even going into a Setup? Did you try to reinstall windows and somehow cancelled or the system crashed in the middle of it? Maybe you mean start up? Let's assume it won't get past Start up. Turn off the laptop and turn it on again then immediately start hitting the F8 Key until you see a screen that will allow you to boot into SAFE MODE. When you see that screen scroll down and you should see an option that says something like Cancel or Stop Automatic Restart On Boot. Take that option and that will allow you to see why the machine keeps restarting. Afterwards turn it off again and repeat the steps previously defined to get to SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot into windows. Windows will look bigger and darker in Safe Mode, that's normal. Now click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Run System Restore and restore it to a day and time before you started having this problem. System Restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures or videos, so it's safe. However, System Recovery destroys all data, docs, music, pictures and videos and sets your system back to the point where you first purchased it. Depending on your operating system you might have a different way to get to System Restore, but it's on your system. If the restore points are damaged and will not let you get to a previous date and time then you will need a system disc to get into the recovery console and type the following command: chkdsk /r Check disk will run well over an hour and you will see the percentage toggle from high to low but that is normal. Let it run until it finishes then reboot.

I can not turn on my Sony Vaio laptop. when I press the on botton it shows vaio and windows xp as if its starting then it keeps on doing same procedure without turning on to windows xp for use! Thanx.

use a windows setup disc and check for problems on your installation, it sounds as if a driver update is causing the laptop to crash , hence why windows is not starting. Have you tried entering safe mode? Are you able to start windows this way?

Laptop powers on, but windows doesnt load

Boot PC from Windows XP installation CD you will be ask to instal fresh copy or repair existing installation - go for "fresh copy" software will analyze you PC and try to find your previous copy of Win XP you will be ask again to repair copy of your existing Windows Xp now go for "Repair" option so installation software restore all Windows files and will keep all your settings*.
This solution is only temporary because IE 7 and 8 will no longer work after restoring - backup all your data and instal fresh copy of Win XP after all and always keep Your Backup up to date!!

After crshing my computer I sent it to be fixed. however when I got it back the copmuter no longer recognized it was a hp pavilion 1610n. Then the computer crashed again I tried to run the recovery discs...

You have to call the company that did the repair or HP, what they forgot to do is put the asset tag back in. which tells the cd what kind of computer you have

Wont boot up

It sounds like your windows is crashing on boot. This can be caused my many different things. First thing to try is a windows operating disk. Put the CD/DVD in your drive then try turning it on. If you still have the recovery or system disk that came with the laptop this will work as well. Hope this helps.

Tried to install update and computer crashed

A few ways to try and eliminate.
Upon startup F8 for safe mode: Last Know Configuraton

Hit F8 for safe mode. Go into accessories>system tools>system restore
Doesn't work then: need Windows CD setup. Let it run and hit R for Recovery Console. At the DOS prompt type FIXMBR or FIXBOOT.
