Acer aspire x3812 power button


Check your hard drive, run a diagnostic. You may be able to boot into safe mode. Turn on the system and keep hitting the F8 key immediately. If that doesn't do it then try to reinstall the operating system. You may have a currupted Boot.ini or load manager. Lastly if you recently installed any device or program uninstall it. Good Luck

Dell studio one goes to advanced menu


Try booting with only the basic hardware - remove all printers etc -
If you are having a hardware issue -and it is a sudden thing you have hardware issues.

Remove all but one memory stick and see if it boots - if now - remove the one memory stick and place the other one in. If you know you're way around - go to boot the machine and as it starts - hit the delete key and keep hitting it until it goes into the DOS mode. Check the date that is set there. If it isn't that days date set it to that day. Keep settings and continue the boot.

Says missing file root>\system32\hal.dll


Sometimes we look for the difficult when the solution is right in front of you.

I got the error message after flashing my AMD64 BIOS. Tried rebooting, then a repair, and the problem wouldn't go away. But, if I set the boot sequence up for CDROM first, then HDD, and let the bootup go WITHOUT hitting any key to boot from the CD, Windows would start.

Tried the randall's solution. No luck. Tried copying Hal.dll to system32 still no luck.

Then by accident, I hit F8 during the initial boot. I selected my master 1 and got through.

Went into setup and found that my HDD boot sequence had my slave as the first boot device. End of probelm.

So, here is what was going on. I had upgraded to a larger hard drive, and kept the original as a slave. (Just to have access to files that I might have forgotten about. While I had erased the files on D, I didn't remove the system files. So, when I tried to boot, it was the system on D drive that would try to boot but all the necessary files needed to boot that disk had been removed.



But, randall's solution link is a good one to know. It helped me solve a similiar probelm on another computer where I had two operation systems to choose from, but only one installed.

Shuts down on boot up


hi sir,

Does it just shuts down or it reboots?
If it shuts down this type of problems can be resolved by scanning the computer for a virus or
using the Windows Repair Disks. During boot if you can hit F8 and use safemode with command and prompt.

1 Type CHKDSK/F then hit enter
2 Press Y then hit Enter then reboot to see if this works.

If it reboots while booting up then.

Other things that might be preventing the computer to boot up most likely is the memory.
Take out the memory put it on a different slot or try a new memory.
Also make sure that the power supply fans are not dirty this prevents the computer to bootup.

Dell Optiplex GX270 will not boot from disk


Does it show

boot from cdrom?
did you answer (Y)
then hit spacebar?
have the bios set to boot from cdrom/first boot device cd-rom?
If any of these settings are not applyed you will not restore xp on your computer

go into bios and conferm settings

first boot device if set as floppy or hard drive change to cdrom
on some systems you can hit the (f12) key to bring up a boot window and select the cdrom and boot from there then it will ask the normal questions

Computer has a virus. Want to format drive and reintall windows but when I try to read cd off of desktop the pointer becomes busy and sort of freezes any operation.


If you plan to reformat the hdd, just boot the unit off the cd. you may have to go into the BIOS setup and change the boot order so that it accesses the cdrom first. In most HP systems you can access the BIOS setup by hitting f10 key during the boot stage.

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
