Freezes up at 3/4 boot 90% time

Friend has the computer. He tried booting several days in a row and then one day fooled with maybe the F10 or F8 key and got into the system at startup and did something and it worked a couple of times - ie booted up.

I came over to his house and it was running and I installed WiFi and then downloaded some registry fixit from the net ie CCcleaner and Advanced PC Repair and then began a system defragment but stopped it about half way through. Then turned off his computer and ever since it has not booted past about 3/4 boot up and mouse freezes and control alternate delete does not work so must either use shutdown button or turn off and turn on the power to get it too reboot.

Computer freezes when I sign onto my accont


Hi,

To resolve this issue, shutdown the computer and Restart it, as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select, "Last Good Known Configuration" and hit "Enter" key. It should take care of the issue. If not, then boot the computer to "Safemode", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode" from the Advance boot menu. If it is booting to Safemode, then perform a system restore to previous date. If nothing happens, then you have to perfomr a full system restore.You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

Thanks and Regards,

F8 key does not access safe mode


You should be able to do so press f8 several times before the windows logo while booting ...

Or

Just shut down the laptop while windows logo appears while booting then power on the menu should show up

When i try to boot my laptop the percent hits 90 and freezes


boot into safe mode, (repeatedly press F8 at power on)
Then try a regular boot.
if that doesn;t clear the stuck driver, then you may need to look at the system restore option

in safe mode, you can reset the computer back to the last few days.
look in accessories\system tools\system restore

When i restart my computer no icon came out


try rebooting in "safe mode", by holding 'F8' as soon as you start your system, until the black screen with several boot options shows up. Select "safe mode with Networking". If you can boot it up and see your icons again, try a "system restore" to a time when it worked properly -maybe a few days ago?
To do a system restore:
"Start"
"Programs"
"accessories"
"System tools"
"System Restore"
"Restore my computer to an earlier time"

I hopes, please let me know.

Have a friend that can't boot his computer to windows xp


Before trying to use any of Dell-net's suggestions, we've got to get you into the bios.

It looks generally like this:

You should see a message displayed when you start the computer that says press "Del or F2 or F10" to enter setup.

Once we get here, we can proceed.
