    There is no command prompt for me to use, I don't have the CD, I've tried every combo of safe mode, last good configuration, and all the other ones it will let me select.

Basically all you can do is follow the on screen directions. if that does not work
If the Command Prompt is available, try the commands:

chkdsk /r

and then:

win

Try booting up and tapping F8 until boot option screen comes up.
Select Last Known Good Configuration and hit enter
See what happens

If you need to shut down then press and hold the ON button for a soft shutdown instead of pulling the plug

How do I make Dell 530s boot and load windows?


Are there any sets of audio 'beeps' that occur during startup? If you get anything other than a single beep during startup, it could indicate an error code for hardware failure detected during the POST phase of bootup.

If you have recovery or Windows installation CD's, try pressing F12, go to the bootup menu and try booting from the CD.

Look at the bootup menu and see if there is a hard drive as one of the options. If the hard drive is not there, or if you try to boot from the hard drive from that menu and you get error messages, that might indicate something wrong with the hard drive.

If you can boot from the CD, you may be able to use the Windows Recovery Manager to restore Windows on your hard drive, if the hard drive is working. There may also be a recovery partition on the drive that will allow you to recover Windows, but beware that files on the hard drive may be lost when you use the recovery partition.

If you have files on the hard drive you need to recover, you may be able to remove the hard drive, put it on an USB drive adapter, and use another PC to copy files off of the old drive, even if it cannot boot the old computer. After you have recovered your files, you can try the recovery partition or format the drive and use Windows install disks to restore Windows to the drive.

Downloaded windows 7 upgrade which hasd an expansion pack on it - computer booted and was uploading changes when computer froze adn now screenis black with blinking cursor on boot. I tried a boot recovery...


Turn the pc off and turn it back on again. As soon as you turn it on, press the f2, f8 or delete key to get the pc to go into the bios system. Try each key one time and if it does not stop the startup and open the bios system, turn the pc off and restart it again and try the next one. If you can get the pc to go into the bios system, you can retstore the pc back to the last known good configuration. Then save to CMOS and exit. Then restart the pc again and it should start normally. You can also buy a windows 7 disk and put it in the drive and restart the pc to get it to boot from the disk and restore it by reinstalling the operating system.

My computer froze and then turned off and won't come back on


You can try clearing the CMOS or resetting the BIOS settings to default first, then see if that helps. Then you can try repairing your operating system by booting from your Windows XP/Vista/7 disc.

Restore failed reason 0xa000000c.


this error is referring to a bad MBR (Master Boot Record)
which basically means that you will need to take steps to either recovery the master boot record or restore your computer using the the recovery disk.
Apparently acer has a partition specifically for recovery.
did you repartition your hard drive?

Try Booting and pressing ALT F10 and that may take you to a recovery console.

Computer will not boot up


need to reinstall windows it is corrupted

No signal input


this sounds like fried graphics card... the clue being the error message before it died,

Does the PC boot so that you can see the Bios Screen, (the very first info that displays) the BIOS screen does not use the windows drivers and would be unaffected if a driver failure occurs,

if this is the case then press f8 on boot to select SAFE mode so you can remove/replace the graphics drivers (in device manager)

if you cannot get bios or safe mode, then try reseating your graphics card first as it may have just worked it way out of its slot (due to expansion of card/slot as system heats/cools)

if this fails to work then a replacement of the graphics card is probably what is required.

Windows error


First, make sure there are no discs in any of the drives as this could disrupt the boot process. Prior to seeing the HP screen you should get a prompt as to press F10 to go into system setup. Once in system setup choose the option to go to system restore or system recovery. From there you should be able to restore your computer to a sytem restore point that was set up with a checkpoint at set intervals by Windows XP. If that is unsuccessful you may have to utilize your recovery discs.
Good Luck.
