Sometimes they make the recovery disk with windows on it, but not the programs that start windows during the boot up phase. One of the three main files that boots into windows is corrputed or your Master Boot Record is missing. There are two options you can try without the OS disc so lets see if one of those will work: 1) boot up and press F8 to enter safe mode. Once in safe mode sometimes you can also get into window because just the minimum of the program is loaded. F8 Safe Mode>in windows>click start>accesories>system tools>system restore. It will allow you to restore your computer to a prior date before you have problems. 2)if that don;'t work then F8 safe mode and while in safe mode choose Last Known Configuration. Kinda works the same way as restoe but you don't have to be in windows to do it. If those don't work then get your hands on a windows xp disc, anyone's will do, don't have to be yours. Let me know how it goes.
Rate this solution. You can also find out about this at support.microsoft.com>help and support>type in Windows XP boot disk in the search engine.If those don't work let me know and we'll move on to phase II.

That indicates a hardware problem. From your description I would check the cpu or suspect it as being the problem. It can be a ram problem as well.

Hello,
If you are sure that you have tried with a working monitor, then it means that even though you can see the fan working, the PC is not actually booting. Now try changing the memory with a working one. If the problem persists, try replacing your video card with a working one. You should be okay.

If not, then you would have to go further to check your processor and then the main board if necessary. All the best.

You may have to try reloading windows. It sounds like a software problem.

How do i restart Gateway e1 vision amd fully clearing everything from the login and f8 and f11 will not work


The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key and repeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen then choose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again.
That should prompt the restore feature for gateway.
with a "Restore from factory default" option. This loads the system partition (C:) from the recovery partition (hidden). It does wipe every thing out on the C: drive to be like it was when new.
If that doesn't work the only way to do it is to boot into windows and run the eRecovery program

My screen keeps flashing" diagnosing your PC" why


There is a problem with your windows 8 PC's installation, which has stopped it from booting correctly; hence why it starts in 'startup repair', and tries to diagnose your PC. Hold the F8 key while booting your computer to go into the startup menu for Windows; click Advanced startup options; and select Restore my PC; which will reinstall windows.
This may or may not work for your machine, you may have to hold F2, F10, or the Escape key to go into the UEFI setup and go into startup options from there.

Restore factory settings


Try to get into the BIOS using either F2 , F1 , F8 , or F10 when it starts to load .
Once there , check it's boot sequence to make sure the hard drive was not removed from the load list . If it was , change it to be the first boot device , save , and then restart .

Cannot get past the infotmic logo.How can I get past this?


hard reboot and use F8 key until unit starts in safe mode this will allow you the options to review some start up issues and also may need to hard reboot and use either F10 or F12 key depending on your PC/Laptop brand and be sure your are booting from the HardDrive.... if you have a "repair disk" that came with your unit you can put it in the CD/DVD drive and then do a hard reboot and do F10 to boot from CD-ROM this will allow you to run a repair disk on the unit to see if your missing any files or programs etc. Good Luck .

You need to launch the Last know good configuration to get this fixed.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Step 6: your PC will boot to the windows.

Acer M1640 Won't boot


Press F8 during boot and see if it can go into Safe Mode. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

Notebook Gateway 7330GZ won't boot


Hm...That sounds like either the motherboard is dying/dead or a device is (such as the hard drive). I would suggest removing one piece at a time and see if you can get past that screen. The most annoying would be if it is the DVD drive since it's probably the most difficult device to remove from the laptop. (If memory serves it involves removing a certain screw from the bottom and then getting under the keyboard so you can push it out).

Do you have a second stick of RAM installed? Mine died a while ago and caused real heck with my 7330GZ.
