Re: cpu will not boot even in safe mode

Make sure you have'nt left a floppy disc in the drive when booting up. If you havent press F2 or DEL on startup and enter the bios. In advanced bios settings ensure that the HDD is set at first boot device, if not select by means of either + or - keys or up and down arrows on number pad. Press Esc when done and save settings and exit to re boot system.

My desktop will not boot says to insert disk to start install I don't have the disk

Your reinstall partition might be damaged! Try going into bios and just have the hard drive to boot as #1. If The partition is damaged you will have to get a windows install disk. Call the company and let them know and they "might" send you a disk. Have all your info, serial #, windows key, hopefully you registered your computer and they will have your info!

Think Point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All these solutions sound nice. The problem is that even in "Safe Mode with Networking" I cant access anything on the computer that includes the start menu. So I cant install...

One way:
* remove the disk-drive from your computer
* install a different disk-drive (any old, 4GB or larger, disk-drive will work)
* install Windows onto that disk
* install anti-virus software onto that disk
* reconnect the previous disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive
* launch the anti-virus software, targetting that "slave" disk-drive
* shutdown
* disconnect the different disk-drive
* boot from the original disk-drive, now that it is virus-free

PC does not boots / does not start

Since your system reboots even if you stay in the Bios setup the problem with your system might be because of heating up of the proceesor, which might be caused if the fan CPU fan is rotating slowly or is not rotating at all. If the fan is rotating slowly change the cpu fan and try to reinstall XP

Can't factory restore dell inspiron 531 (windows xp).

You might want to try going into setup and setting your boot drive options to DVD drive as your 1st, HD as 2nd and Floppy as 3rd. Put your windows disk in the DVD before boot and run the program from DVD.

Your Windows simply isn't booting. It may give additional information, flashing it on the screen just before it does.

Try to start in Safe Mode by hitting F8 just as it says "Starting Windows". If you can boot in safe mode, you may be able to further diagnose the problem. If you get into safe mode, go to Start: Control Panels: System: Device Manager. See if any devices have error symbols next to them.

At this point, though, you may just want to save some time and try to boot off your Windows installation disks and reinstall Windows.

DO NOT USE A "SYSTEM RESTORE" disk -- that will wipe out your hard drive so it looks just like it did from the factory -- a working copy of Windows, but all your pictures, documents and everything else will be gone for good.
