Since you don't have the backup software to boot from, look at this information on the Microsoft website concerning FDISK/MBR.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/69013
If you have any Anti-virus installation CD you might boot from that to see if it contains a FDISK or similar repair application.
Be careful with FDISK, as it is capable of deleting the drive partitions, leaving you no choice but to re-install Vista using an installation disk.
If you are successful, I strongly recommend that you check your system's accessories for the making of backup disks. Vista should have a utility built in to make the disks, and the disks will sure prove handy in the future.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Hi poemmaker2, mostly hardware and software changes find your Operating System disc to also update your windows installation like what you are having now. So definitely you must have an operating disc so that whenever there are updates of your unit and getting errors like a tremendous virus attack on your computer, it will surely avoid or lessen problems.

*Please drop me a comment if you have problems. I will surely assist you. You can count on me.

My daughters acer one will not upload. She unpluged and closed when it was updating 118 updates, well thats what she told me. Now it goes to a screen with Safe Mode, Safe Mode w/ Networking, Safe Mode w/...


There is a simple solution for you, just move to safe mode and then run in safe mode. After same mode chose option of Restore and after restarting once again run in safe mode then restart and start with normal windows.

Your issues has been resolved.

Good Luck --- Thanks

Toshiba stuck on start-up screen.


The windows files have been corrupted, I was hoping you might get into safe mode to try a system restore but your system will not allow it. If you can find your recovery disc a clean install is the best way to go. Try www.toshiba.com contact customer support about a replacement recovery disc.

Hold F8 while booting to go into safe mode, or last known good configuration. Then, preform the update from there, and that should fix your problem.

My hp mini 1000 wont boot up. when i turn it on it goes right to a screen that asks how i want to start up windows ( safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts, and start windows...


hi blinkgirl556

was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.

hope this helps
contact me for any updates

Unit wont start, gray screen then goes to a screen with options on how to start unit and then goes blank


Answer:To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.
