Stuck at windows screen and Can't read from drive

When my laptop loads it is stuck at the Windows XP screen and the bar at the bottom like it is trying to load but doesn't go anywhere. When I try loading from my cd drive it says there is a error reading the disc, and a couple days ago I lost the sound on my laptop. Does anyone know the problem or what I can try
Thanks

Sounds like a Bad motherboard and its failing all over the place. It most likely needs to be replaced.

Allthough, if the CD Drive is malfunctioning, it may be causing WINXP to frees on boot.

Try this before chunking in dumpster.

Remove the CD Drive all together and then boot and see if it works.

If it does, then its a bad CD drive, get a new one or just remove it and dont use it. Try finding a good one on ebay or something.

let me know.

Good Luck

I did a system recovery with the cds provided with the laptop for my compaq 2175 but when it restarts it gets stuck on the Windows XP screen and never gets past that point. How do I fix this?


You may have some malfunctioning hardware. When the computer boots up and you see the compaq screen, you should be able to perform hardware diagnostics by pressing one of the F keys. Look in the bottom right hand corner. My guess is going to be malfunctioning hard drive, especially since the computer is a bit "older" and age is rough on laptop hard drives.
I believe the key for diags is F9

Boots to progress bar before loading windows


It seems that windows tries to check your Hard Disk for errors before loading the system files to memory. Do you hear some sounds from your hard disk? If you can successfully get to windows, open my computer => right click on drive C => Click on Properties => Click on TOOLS Tab and click CHECK NOW button.

Check the next 2 options and answer YES when windows ask you to schedule a thorough scan during next boot.

Regards!

I installed Windows XP at my desktop and it loads very slowly. It just stuck at the black screen with the blue progress bar flashing for about 3-4 minutes.


Just wait for it. Its normal if the flashing light doesn't transfer to another box then it is actually not working.

If that is before welcome screen and stay for about 8-10 minutes it is not working.

Common fault. Harddrive improper priming, cd disc scratches(damage surface unavail to read by the reader), faulty cdrom or second grade quality. Fault in hardware. Aged drive.

Chkdsk gets stuck for windows XP on restarting


Try running these two free programs, Diskcheckup and SmartDefrag. (Just copy the addresses here and paste into your address bar.)

Diskcheckup reads your hard drives and tells you if there are errors, or it reads "OK" in a wide variety of categories. http://www.passmark.com/products/diskcheckup.htm

Once that is done, download and run SmartDefrag. This program, also free, will constantly defrag your system while you are working, but will not interfere with what you are doing. It will also mark any bad areas on your drives to be avoided by the system.
