Sometimes depending on how far it will boot and what version of windows it is. You can hit the F8 key as it is first starting up and get into safe mode. From there you can get into "My Computer" and right click on the "c" select the tools tab and do a defrag and schedule a disk check - check both boxes in disk check - one says "check for errors" the other one say "attempt to repair" This will fix it about 60% of the time!!! Good Luck!!!!

How do i change the boot order in bios on a clientpro 385 running xp?


Each retail manufacturer sets the BIOS screens up a bit different with different headers, but I can give you a generic "what to look for". Judging from your question, I am guessing that you already know how to access the BIOS setup screen in your computer. There will be a header which may be titled, "boot", "Boot Setup", etc. Sometimes under the old American Megatrends BIOS screens the boot order is found under the Storage Drives section, with other BIOS screens it may be different. I will use a Phoenix BIOS for an example. In general, here is what you do:
1. Restart the Computer and enter the BIOS Setup Utility; this is done by tapping a key repeatedly, usually the DELETE key (but not always).
3. Locate and Navigate to the Boot Order Options in BIOS
4. Make Changes to the Boot Order
5. Save Changes to the BIOS Setup Utility
6. Confirm Boot Order Changes and Exit BIOS
7. Start the Computer With the New Boot Order

I will use an example (I hope this website allows multiple pictures to upload, but here I go):
The first screen will look something like this, with a general posting of your components:
63649b72-4cb6-43bc-a443-d617d897cc2d.jpg


Tap your right arrow key to move this hilight over to the "Boot" header in the top, blue header bar (as below):
40b9c75e-09c2-4cc7-a7d2-568a69854882.jpg


Now you have to figure out how this manufacturer set it up; usually guidelines are in the right column to help you, but the general rule is that you hilight the hard drive and (somehow) move it up to the top for the first boot device. Sometimes you hilight "Hard Drive", then press "Enter" and it gives you more options for moving it to 1st boot device. Other times you may be able to directly move it from this screen (above) by pressing a different key. Just work with it and eventually you will figure it out. If you still have the original manual that came with the computer they may (or may not) give detailed instructions.
When you finally get it configured, be sure to save it. This is usually done by pressing F10 key, it will ask you if you want to save settings, press Yes and you are done. If you need additional help, I hang out with a bunch of other techs at the (free) compute help forum, www.suggest-a-fix.com This website is not set up for easy back n' forth communication. Hope this helps you.

I Have an HP pavilion slimline s3100n desktop pc and when i turn it on the blue light is lit but there is not power on the usb cables and i cant see anything on my computer screen but the fans are working...


Without additonal information, it is difficult to offer specific suggestions, but:

Are the video connections to the computer/computer card and the monitor tight?

Is the monitor turned on? Sorry - I had to ask.

Do you have access to another monitor? Does it work on your computer?

Do you have a video card on a computer which has its own, built-in video card? If so try switching where you attach the video cable. Once I had to physically remove the seperate card, attach to the built in output and all worked well.

If you have access to a working computer, you can go to:

for additional information.

Hello there:
If you cant get the computer to uninstall this in the safe mode or if you cant even get to the safe mode yo are going have to use your system restore disk if you have one and use it to repair the windows version that you have if you dont have the restore disk you can repair the current version using the disk that you have bu putting the disk in and restarting the computer
once it starts lt it start and press any key when it asked than after that enter the f-8 key and do not say repair let it go into the install of your operating syste than it will show you your windows versiion that you have and then it wil ask you if you want to repair this version of windows now say yes and follow the screen it will repair it and reinstall the corrupted file '(s) ok
best regards michael
