Computer wont go past a blue error screen

My computer wont startup. when i turn it on it goes to a black page called windows error recovery. When i try to launch the startu repair there are no operating systems listed. It saids that if there are no operating systems listed to load drivers from your hard disk. But whatever i load does no show up.When i try to start windows normally, it goes to a blue screen that saids the disk may be corrupted or the power was turned off suddenly. The last thing i did on my computer was use Facebook then turned it off normally through the taskbar.

    hard drive has died? Ive had the laptop for no more than a month. Im on vacation in America so i cant get my warranty from Australia for another 4 months.



    Ive heard that acer laptops with more than 2gigs of RAM can have this problem. IT cant be anything like that?

  • brendonlv15 Dec 19, 2008

    ah no worries, my dad set up this website and just told me to type my problem. It turns out that with a bit more web surfing, i could use the Alt+F10 button at the startup screen to restore the laptop to default factory settings. I lost my C drive but luckily ive always keep my important files on an external harddrive.

    Thankyou for the quick replies though, im sure if i had a desktop comp, u would be able to sort me out :)

Your hard drive may have quit(died). No good solution other than replace the hard drive. Do you have a restore disk for you computer, to use after replacign the HD?

How do I correct the problem code C 0000001 on Windows 8 operating system


Solve Error Code 0xc0000001 in Winodws 8 Team Windows 8



Windows 8 Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) or Error Code: 0xc0000001 sometime occurs without any specific issue. You can't be sure what actually caused it. Be it a system issue or some driver problem, you may end up seeing this screen when you restart your computer.



To solve this blue screen error in windows 8, turn off your computer and when you power it up again, immediately press SHIFT + F8 key you will be resented with following screen:



Click on "See advanced repair options" and from the next screen, choose "Troubleshoot":



On the next screen, choose "Advanced Options"



In Advanced Options, choose "Windows Startup Settings"



There you will find a button "Restart". Click on this button and allow the wizard to complete all the steps. Note that it will repair your computer without making any changes to it. Once the process is completed, your computer will automatically restart and you should be able to boot windows now.



Still facing same error?

If you have followed all the above mentioned steps but got no luck in booting up your windows then probably your cause of the error is more solid and cannot be restored with mere settings reset. But don't worry, it can still be solved using windows recovery options. For this you should have a recovery/installation disc or USB Flash Drive.

Dell inspiron one touch screen stuck in diagnostic mode


HI,
You were correct in pressing ctrl+f11 but perhaps you did not press at the correct time. If in following these first two steps you do not get the recovery console, it may not have been installed on your computer.

1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, clickRestore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlightRestore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
Thanks.

Hp pavilion slimline s3600t desktop pc - Wont boot up, flashes to blue screen after hp blue screen and restarts. no option for safe mode either


A Blue Screen is more time than not indicative of a driver issue or some hardware issue. First of all when it boots to the screen that shows Safe Mode and the other options, scroll down and see if there is an option to Stop or Disable Automatic Restart on Boot. This will stop the screen from restarting itself when the blue screen appears and give you a chance to read and see what the error is. Afterwards it is ok to run Startup Repair. Startup Repair does not delete any of your personal files. Let startup repair run and then see if it boots. Once again, startup repair does not delete any of your music, documents, pictures, videos or programs. System Restore does not delete any of you documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. System Recovery WILL DELETE all of your music, pictures, videos, documents & any programs you've added since you brought the computer home from the store. System Recovery sets your computer back to the very first time you turned it on after you purchased it. I would run the startup repair, if that does not fix your problem, see if you can run a System Restore. A lot of time the Restore Points are damaged or missing when this happens, but give it a try and restore to a point before you started having the blue screen issue. If all fails you're going to need a system disc so that you can get into the Recovery Console so that you can enter a dos command in the little black box that opens up with white letters. You want to type: chkdsk /r
Let it run. It will run well over an hour and you will notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, but that's ok. Let it run to completion then try rebooting. If this doesn't work, you're going to need to take it to a repair shop or reload the operating system yourself.

My emachine laptop has a virus. When you turn it on it goes to black screen with the option to start recovery mangement or start windows.When pressing either,it goes to black screen for a little bit then...


You may have files that you want to keep that you saved on your hard drive, but if you haven't backed them up then you will have to lose them because the only thing you can do to fix this is use the factory recovery disk which will wipe your hard drive clean.Just put the disc into the disc tray and you should get an option to start the recovery disc when you turn on the computer, it will tell you to press a key to start it which might be f3 or something different, I'm am not sure what key but when you have done that you should be able to start the recovery and wipe the hard drive clean and it should solve your problem

When I turn on the computer it wont go past the startup page


The answer to your last question is many manufactures have chosen to put a recovery partition on the HD. Many PCs offer the ability to burn a CD from the recovery partition.

The issue with it not booting up could be many things. Could be a corrupt HD, could be a bad HD.
Press F8 while booting and see if you can choose "last known good configuration" or try safe mode.

Without a recovery CD you may run out of options, but if you can obtain a copy of XP and boot with it (not to install) You can choose an option to go into "Recovery Console" There you can run a chkdsk command and that can solve corrupted HD issues. Rebooting after the chkdsk is complete will sometimes let you back into normal windows.

G'luck

Get the blue screen


If your Dell was built after 6/04, you have a recovery partition. Press Ctrl+F11 on startup to restore the system to the way it was when delivered.
