My acer laptop keeps rebooting giving me a blue error screen. Don't have disk that came with it what can i do?


If you receive the Blue Screen, that means the Laptop is having a trouble with
  • Operating System/ Sub System failure
  • Software Device/Application Failure
  • RAM
  • Hard Drive
You have to include the BSOD message. Please do it next time so that I can give a more appropriate answer.
If the blue screen doesn't remain, here is what you have to do to Disable the Automatic Restarting.
  • When the system boots you have to go to the Operating System Menu.
  • Most PCs and LAPs has the Default key "F8" or "F11". Check the keys and hit until you are directed to an Operating System Choice menu.
  • Select "Disable Automatic Restart on a System Failure" and Hit Enter.
Include the BSOD message in the Next Comment

Operating system not found


Hi there. The thing that caused the shutdown is a software conflict. Go to the windows advanced option by pressing F8 key when you see the Dell Screen upon restart of the computer. Choose "Disable automatic Restart in system error" and press enter. That should fix your problem.

I reciently installed a bigger HD and now I get the"blue screen from hell"!! How can I get it to boot on the new HD?,Ray


did you format the hard drive first?
typically you need to format the hard drive using the NTFS file system before you install your operating system.

does your bios recognize the hard drive?
make sure your bios detects the hard drive.

can you boot your computer in Safe Mode? If so, do that and use your error log to find the specific cause of the blue screen,

lastly post the blue screen error message on here to get a better answer.

T 43 says "operating system not found"


Sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Boot up with a Windows CD and select repair at the setup menu. It should dump you to a command line. Type "chkdsk /f" without the quotes and it will check the hard drive for errors. When it's done, reboot normally and it should get you into windows. If it doesn't, replace the hard drive and install windows on the new HDD.

How do I reinstall the operating system on a dell inspiron 6000?


Using Dell PC Restore by Symantec
NOTE: Dell PC Restore is available only on computers purchased in certain regions.
Use Dell PC Restore by Symantec only as the last method to restore your operating system. PC Restore
restores your hard drive to the operating state it was in when you purchased the computer. Any programs or
files added since you received your computer—including data files—are permanently deleted from the hard
drive. Data files include documents, spreadsheets, e-mail messages, digital photos, music files, and so on.
If possible, back up all data before using PC Restore.
NOTICE: Using PC Restore permanently deletes all data on the hard drive and removes any applications or drivers
installed after you received your computer. If possible, back up the data before using PC Restore.
To use PC Restore:
1 Turn on the computer.
During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.
2 Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish restarting, and then restart the
computer again.
NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.
3 On the next screen that appears, click Restore.
4 On the next screen, click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.
5 When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.
NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.

Lenovo X60 Laptop blue screen error wont boot up


Try to go into safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as you turn on the laptop.

If you get into safe mode then go into system restore and choose a date when the laptop was working properly. Let it rollback to that date and reboot the computer and let it go and see if it goes back into windows.

If you get a blue screen even when trying to go into windows then the operating system is corrupted and you'll need to do a factory restore on the laptop, meaning the hard drive would have to be wiped out and the operating system put back onto the hard drive.

Blue screen c000021a fatal system error


usually blue screen comes from unstable video memory or windows system or HD.
you may try
1) reinstall windows
2) change another HD to install windows
3) change new ram memory or change memories slot between one and another
if not fixed, to be sure your video memory damage which is insualted on board(separated with RAM), only the hardware repair can be fixed.
