The BOOT.INI file may be corrupt. Boot to a command prompt and rename original file c:\ren boot.ini boot.tmp. Now type edit. and insert the following script.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

Save as boot.ini. Alt key gives you the menu options

You can also create the file elsewhere and copy to c:\ Remember to rename original.
Note! This is a single partition standard from factory configuration.

    Remove all USB attached devices like drives. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC, open case, and remove all RAM. Test one DIMM at time, one slot at a time. Re-install Windows. Clean install works best, but all data will be lost. Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

Your PC is stuck in safe mode startup

I would suggest using the Windows Disk, if you have one, go through normal windows installation. At the point of installation just after pressing F8 it will detect windows exists and offer you a repair option press R to repair

I have a p5gcmx problem, displays black after installing the window7 os


ASUS P5GC-MX - O/S Compatibility - Link
Windows Vista
Windows XP
Windows 2000

Options you can try.
1. Can you boot the OS Win 7 in "Safe-Mode"?
If you can boot your system into safe-mode, then your monitor cannot handle a "higher graphic resolution" which will result a black screen. You can try using a better montor with resolution "1280x720".

Hope it helps, & Good luck.

HP Pavilion dv62020sa comes black screen how can i solved ?


HI there,

To understand this much better,could you please elaborate:

When it shows black screen,While booting up,after showing the Windows logo?

Which is the operating system?

However i will assume your operating system as windows 7.

I would suggest you to try the following steps:


Step 1:Disconnect all the external devices (printers, scanner, USB(universal serial bus) drives, etc...)Except mouse and the keyboard and then boot up.

If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time until you discover the piece of hardware causing the issue. Then get any updated drivers\software for the device.

Step 2: Boot the computer in safe mode. To do this, follow the steps below:

Access the Advanced boot options menu by turning on your computer and pressing the F8 key continuously before Windows starts. On the advanced boot options menu select Safe Mode.

Advanced startup options (including safe mode)

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Advanced-startup-options-including-safe-mode


Enable clean boot in safe mode


Step 3: Put the computer in clean boot, to figure out if any third party software is hindering the process

Enable clean boot, see step 1 in the link below:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

If everything works fine after a clean boot, you can infer that some third party services are causing the problem.

Proceed with the remaining steps to pin-point out the third party service.

Note: After you figure out the problem causing program, you may have to update or install a higher version of the program, if you seldom use that software you can consider uninstalling

Important: - Remember to put the computer back to normal startup follow step 7 in the link.

Advent black screen


Hi,

This sounds like a bad video driver update.

Restart the machine and repeatedly tap the F8 key. When you see the advanced boot menu appear choose safe mode.

You will see white text on screen that will stop on a system 32 driver, wait a minute and let it boot through.

Next, go do device manager and uninstall the display drivers or roll back the driver to a previous one.
Reboot the machine and it should boot into windows normally. You may have to reinstall the display drivers if they don't reinstall themselves.


Please post back if you need anymore help or advice.



Good luck.

Hi, My laptop Dell Inspiron 6000 have a blue screen every time it boots up. Can't load Windows (XP Home) the error message is: *** STOP 0x00190203, 0x86D63828, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000) Anyone can help?


there must have been a problem with the drivers you have just installed, or there is a corrupt windows file on your system, you should try reinstalling the system without reformating it with the use of a Bootable Windows XP Home Disk, you should make your CD/DVD Drive to boot from your system by configuring your bios on your boot priority.

When you are on the WIndows XP setup screen press enter, accept the license agreement, and it will check if you have existing windows partiotion, press R to repair the Partition, wait for it to finish, then your system comes back to normal.

Or another way is to boot into Safe Mode, in order to check if there are driver conflicts or corrupted files on your Windows system. Press F8 to go a menu where you can select to boot from Safe Mode.

Hello: I have a computer running Windows XP Media Edition SP2. Several weeks ago, I started experiencing boot up problems with my computer. It stops booting in normal mode. It will boot in safe mode. When...


It looks like you installed the wrong drivers for your motherboard.  It can cause a Blue Screen Of Death.  Also how many hard-drives do you have in that computer?  IDE?  Are the jumpers set to CS?  I find that CS causes problems.  If you have 2 devices on a ribbon cable make one master w non ATA   and the second device as slave.  Also the boot.ini could be confused.  Is the boot.ini on the wrong hard-drive   Did you accidentally put 2 operating systems on the same computer?  lots of things could have caused this.

Computer starts then goes to black screen and system recovery wont work error code 257'


Hi,
The display drivers maybe corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Dell Support website


Regards.
