Compter won't reoot

I was downloading the windows xp service pack 3 and suddenly, the computer shut down.
I try to reboot it, but I can't get it to do it either in regular mode or in safe mode. It always comes back to the same screen telling me that windows wasn't shut down properly and to restart it in regular mode or in safe mode. I have the averatec reboot cd but I woud like to save the datas I have on the hard drive before I lose everything.
Can someone help me recovering the datas?
Thank you

    I tried all 4 rebooting options, nothing works..

  • ziajo Dec 20, 2008

    No, all I have are the 3 averatec cd. I tried to restart with the first one but it warns you that you will lose all data so I got scared :)

  • ziajo Dec 20, 2008

    Ok, I'll see what I can do.

    Thanks for your help

Try booting with using the Last Known Good Configuration option.
See if you can get into windows that way.
Let me know if that doesn't work and we talk about salvaging you data.

    Very well, do you have the windows XP disc? If so, we can you a repair on your OS.

  • Dave Reisner Dec 20, 2008

    If your data is very valuable then I would borrow an xp disc from a friend or something. If that is not possible then the reboot CD might be the only option left. Sorry mate.

Laptop stuck at Preparing to Standby


Your Operating System is corrupted.
You need to repair it by performing a repair using your Opareating System (OS) installation CD.

If you are using Windows XP, another alternative would be to install/reinstall service pack 3.
This version fixes errors, but may fail to install if errors wont let it.
In that case you will have to perform a system repair using your OS installation CD.

Download an official copy of service pack 3 from the link below:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

I cant down load any games it opens an error blue screen and shuts down


Your Operating System has developed errors (corrupted).
This leads to the blue screen apearing when you try to perform some processes like downloading files, try to burn a CD/DVD.
You can solve this problem by reinstalling your service pack.
If you are using Windows XP, i recomend Service Pack 3, download from the link below:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

If this doesnt work, reinstall your Operating System. Remember to backup your data before OS installation.

Hello guys....i have Vista basic installed on my compaq C 740 TU laptop.....i wish to install windows Service Pack 3 on my machine.....but whenever i insert the XP cd and boot from it.....it fails to...


From what you're saying I get that you want to install Windows XP with Service Pack 3 on your computer. Are you wanting to replace Vista, or do you want a dual boot system? Do you have a Vista CD as well if you want a dual boot system? Did you receive any other disc's with the computer that may have a driver set on it?

Method 3: Use the System Restore and select a restore point prior to SP3

Start up problem


It appears that Service Pack 2 did not completely install. Try to boot into safe mode (F8 at startup). If you can, go to control panel, then add/remove programs. Scroll all the way down, select Windows XP Service Pack 2 and click "remove".

After it's removed, you will need to reboot, but the system should come up normally after that.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate :)
