    Have you recently added any new hardware or software? If Windows is your operating system, can you boot into safe mode? (To enter safe mode: at the beginning of the bootup process, tap the F8 key until you see a boot menu, choose safe mode).

I need to reset the bios as it gets to the black screen and the flashin cursor in top left but then just freezes after that and doesn't do anything. Please help


You need to run the Check Disk Utility. You've got a missing or corrupt boot or system file.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Boot mngr is missing


do you have the set up installation disk


Restart your computer with the Operating system Setup disk in the CDROM drive.

If you are prompted to press a key to start the computer from CDROM, do so quickly. Otherwise it may try to boot from the hard drive.


After a few minutes, you'll see a prompt to press the R key to start the Recovery Console. When Recovery Console starts, it will prompt you to enter a number corresponding to the Windows XP installation that you need to repair. In most cases, you'll enter "1" (which will be the only choice). If you press ENTER without typing a number, Recovery Console will quit and restart your computer.


Enter your Administrator password. If you don't enter the correct password, you cannot continue. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type fixmbr and then verify that you want to proceed. Your damaged MBR will be replaced with a shiny new one, and you should then be able to boot your system normally. In some cases, you may need to repair the boot sector in addition to the MBR. If your system still doesn't boot properly, repeat the steps above, but issue the fixboot command instead.


Hope this helps

Robert, re Literati Start up went fine until the intital restart. in other words, we charged it, then successfullly got on our home wifi network, did an intial literati 'update' or download I believe...


hello

in that case your having third party software that hangs your computer, try to start and hold F8 and start with safe mode, and remove the last software you installed, before that problem occur. or if you attached new hardware remove it.

probably there was a third party software that make you computer freeze on start up.


thank you

I have hp dv9700, after improper shutdown kept rebooting


What happened is that you interrupted the disk write on 'saving settings'. Very BAD. You may be able to start in safe mode, by pressing F8 while windows is starting, then selecting options to attempt to repair. The alternative, is to boot from the windows CD and select 'repair'.

Board prob


You need to find out what was replaced by repairer as it sounds as if the processor is shutting down due to overheating, so check for air circulation problems, or the motherboard is failing.
