Can not boot up computer


possible your hard drive

A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.


In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.


It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.



Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.


If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."

Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system


From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".


If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.


Reset the hard drive.


This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.


If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.

This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.


Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.

Repeat Step 2 if necessary.


If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.


hope this helps

Harddrive not connected


Hi
Your Operating System may have crashed,or damage on the hard drive.
Try disconnecting your machine completely from power.
Disconnect the hard disk and then connect it after a few minutes.
Power on your machine.
Solved?
Remove the hard disk and enslave[connect it as a secondary drive i.e remove the ROM drive and connect it] on another machine with a good operating system.Start this machine, and the 'damaged' drive will be repaired before loading the operating system.After 'repair' completes,remove the drive and fix it on your machine.
Still not solved?
You may have no other option but to format[install operating system again] your drive.If it a partition,well and good,most of your files will be recovered if not some may be lost.

Hope it helps!
Good luck.

Yes expert ntldr missing


It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.

I have hp mini 110 installed with window7. during start BOOTMGR MISSING message comes followed with ctrl+alt+del to restart, pl help me


Good day.
This error message is a result of a couple of possible problems, corrupted operating system (need to reinstall or repair operating system), unbootable media (trying to boot from an unbootable hard disk or cd drive or USB device), defective hard disk or improperly installed hard disk (check cables).
Good Day.

My Compaq Presario SR5601UK running Windows Vista Home Premium locked up today. When trying to reboot it it now freezes on the moving bar that shows on the screen prior to the windows logo and log in...


The error code BI0HD-4 is a hard disk error. You need to delete all partitions on your hard disk and create new ones and format them
This will solve the problem.

Good luck and have a great day!

XP crash, can I recover my files without reboot/loss of data?


If this just happed, nothing was deleted or installed, I would try to run Spinrite before you go down the path of a rebuild. it maybe possible to restore this file with Spinrite. I have done this before. Spinrite is pricey but can be used on other PC's for drive maintenance.

Trying to put a recovery disk on my pc for the acer aspire one. problem is my pc is not taking this disk i have tryed rebooting from the cd but nothing can anyone help please


Is the system running MS Vista? I had this problem with a PC the other day. What I ended up doing was using an XP disk to format the HDD, then before I rebooted I ejected the XP disk and insterted the recovery disk. When the system rebooted, THEN it booted from the recovery disk.

My computer will not reboot


this will either relate to a hard disk fault or a corrupt driver or registry file, if you cannot get into safe mode, or last known good configuration, you may have to run a windows repair using your XP cd
