If it keeps going into setup, check that the date and time is correct, if not correct it and go to standard cmos settings menu and see if your hard disk drive is recognised, if so exit and save settings and reboot. If sends into set up again, check date and time again and if incorrect again, then the cmos battery is flat and needs replacing, if time and date is ok, then look in standard cmos settings again and look for a line reading 'Halt on all Errors', dissable this and next time it boots it should boot to the part where it gives a clue as to the fault.

    Oh dear, if the hard disk is recognised in the bios, and the cmos settings are correct, then either the first 64KB of memory used by the bios on the motherboard to find the c:\ boot.ini file is corrupt, which is unrepairable, or you will need your XP Cd to prepare yourself for a re install.

    This shouldn't lose you any files as it will install over the current copy of windows and replace any damaged registry and boot files, as when it comes to install it will see you already have windows installed and ask if you want to repair.

Dell optiplex 760 won't go into safe mode


It sounds as though your PF keys are disabled by the BIOS settings. Try this:
Upon cold start or reboot get to the BIOS setup. You may have to press F2 or delete, or whatever key the first POST messages instruct you to use. Different BIOS manufacturers use different keys, and you have to be quick to interrupt the boot process using the correct key. If you fail to determine what key it is, reboot once again, until you see/read what key does the job.
Next, once you're into the setup screens, look for a section where you can set/deny access to the F8, F9, F10 etc keys during the boot process.
Make sure you ENABLE them, following the instructions on what keys to use to set/reset these choices. Make sure you SAVE AND EXIT.
On the next reboot, upon the disappearance of all POST messages, make sure you press the F8 key repeatedly until you see your OS boot options menu, among which you'll find Safe Mode.
Good luck!

When you turn on your laptop do you see the P.O.S.T screen or it just remains blank? and also while booting up do you get any beep sound?
Try to boot your computer in Safe Mode by Tapping F2 (or Del in few laptops) key after pushing Power Button.
let me know what happens.

Windows vista on Accer aspire 5315 reboots over and over


Try starting in safe mode (press f8 on start up) once in safe mode use system restore to restore your operating system to a earlier point.
For XP
Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
For Vista
Start - all programs - maintenance - backup and restore center

My Acer Aspire 3000 has a blank screen


When you get in setup check the time and date and see if correct, if not; correct it and save settings and exit, then it should reboot. If the time is correct and date then you will have to reboot the system and keep pressing F8 while its booting, this will take you into safe mode, you need then to choose last known good cofiguration and hit enter, hopefully you should now get into windows.

When you turn on the pc keep pressing F8 until it boots into safe mode. when in safe mode look in the list for 'Last Known Good Configuration' and select the line with the up/down arrows on keyboard and press enter. the pc should then reboot back into windows, if not and you still get the flashing cursor, then there is a boot.ini file fault where the sysstem cannot find the c:\ volume to start windows, and you will need to borrow a copy of windows to do a system repair.
