System failure message

My daughter's computer was running well, When she turned it off. When she started it up again she received a message system failure, immediately backup files, then a ticking noise started and the screen went blank and she has not been able to get back into the computer again. She has tried pushing F10 but it does no good, she cannot get back into the recovery mode. Any suggestions? Is this a hard drive failure? Thanks

    Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, it is too late to save the hard drive. So will have to buy a new one for her. We may be able to save some info using your suggestion though. Thanks again..

Yes, the ticking sound is the platelettes or the head trying to park, you may be lucky, if you press F8 on start up and try to get into safe mode, if so select 'last known good configuration' and press enter and if you get runnong back up important documents to cd. You may have to replace the hard drive if no luck with the boot up, but you may be able to rescue some files if when you replace the hard disk use your faulty one as a slsve drive and see if you can copy over your needed documents, good luck

How can get inside again in the boot setup of a dell optiplex 170L?


Good Day,
That is quite an easy thing to do.
Immediately you turn on your PC, after displaying the brand (for some PC), the computer dispalys 'press F__ to enter boot setup'. If you can't get to read it, either press F2, F12, F10 or F1 continously after you turn on your system. Then you can make your corrections.
I hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya.

When you turn on your computer press F8 for the startup options and choose Safe Mode. When the computer enters Safe Mode run another system scan and then restart. If you are unable to enter your account again, try to do a System Restore (Start\All Programs\Accessories\System) to a date before the infection happened and then do another full system scan.

When i start computer first i see bios. and after bios computer says that it has system failur


If you receive the message "Error loading operating system" and before Windows was running normally, you can try to reinstall your OS with the repair option (if you can't access your hard drive then it's hdd failure). If your message appears before boot media is accessed, I would recommend you to reset BIOS settings by following the steps below:44a6f3c.jpg
