It sounds like you need to rebuild your boot sector or possibly have damage to your NTLDR. Please read this brief article in the
Microsoft Knowledge Base.

I recently corrected a similar issue on my wife's ASUS SLI board.
I started the system and opened the System File Checker.
This is done through START.....RUN....type cmd...click OK then
type sfc/scannow. Hit Enter on your keyboard and insert your
operating system cd.

Also go back to RUN and type compmgmt.msc and click OK. Select DEVICE MANAGER and click DISPLAY ADAPTER. When the name of the adapter comes up double click it and then click
DRIVER then click UPDATE DRIVER. After update restart machine.

I need to reboot my laptop but i don't know how


Reboot essentially means restarting the computer. This is two types
1. Warm Reboot: where you go to start on windows task bar and choose shut down but when prompted choose restart. This way computer shuts down momentarily and restarts!
2. Cold Reboot: By this means you choose to shut down and again when prompted choose shut down! This makes computer off completely until restart by pressing power button.
Booting is computer Lingo for above procedures!

On my everex impact pc window was updated , while windows was starting and now i receive the following error message when booting up "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered error. windows...


If I undrestand this correctly, this was a windows update? In some caese after a windows update, a restart is required and during shutdown and restart it configures that update. If the computer is shut down, "unexpectedly" or shut down before update is finished, then the update won't complete. If this is what happened, shut down computer by pressing power button on front of tower. Start system back up using on/off button. When screen comes up with options to start mormally or..., arrow up to "start in safe mode". Wait a couple of minutes and a window will come up "what is safe mode". Scroll down in that window until you see "what is safe mode", highlighted in different color, and click on that. It will take a couple of minutes, and another window will come up where you can scroll down to "start safe mode", click on this. This will take a couple of minutes and a window will come up with a suggested restart time and you will see a box "next". Click on the box. You should see the update in the list of things that come up. Click on the process just prior to the update and click "start or next". This will take a little time and will restart your system. When it comes up, let it think until you see a message "system restore complete", click on ok. Now you can click on start, find control panel and click on to open. In your list find "windows udate". Right click on and open. At the top left of screen you will see "check for updates" and click on that. It should recommend the update you just removed. If it it "important" check box, and install. Restart when update is finished and give it the time to do it's configurations.
If I misunderstood your problem you can let me know at "add a comment" or try reposting. Make sure you clarify between a "windows update" or a "windows upgrade".

Hi i have just got a new Pavilion DV7 only a few weeks old on boot/start up it starts then goes off several times before it starts to load windows the fan starts and the lights come on then goes off...


Run CHKDSK/F to check for errors. There may be an error on the hard drive.
Closing the lid when closing down, puts it in sleep mode and it will restart much easier but the error should be removed.

C-tree(r) error #7716 and shuting down


Hello,

This is not a windows error.
It looks like some 3rd party application that is using the C-Tree programming language.
Most likely it will be your logitech product.

In order to solve this please start windows in safe mode pressing F8 at the computer start.
As soon as your logged in go to Start-Run.
There you have to type MSCONFIG.

Another window opens, go to the startup tab and uncheck some items to get a clean boot.

If you have some logitech product installed in that menu try unchecking it.

If you need further assistance please don't hesitate and contact me.

Hope it helped.

Gateway laptop problem has been detected and Windows keep shuting down to prevent damage to computer. What shall I do? Norton has currently been added.


start your computer in safe mode.

Click start, run, type 'msconfig' in the box without the commas and click 'OK'

a system configuration utility window pops open. Click on the tab at the top in the middle that says 'boot.ini' and put a mark by safeboot. Drop down and click apply, move left and click close. Restart the computer, you will come up in safemode. If you dont get the same problem, is probably norton, norton wont start in safemode unless its the corporate edition.

to get back to regular mode, click start again, click on run, type msconfig and click ok. The system configuration utility window pops back open. Click the boot.ini tab and unmark safeboot. Drop down and click apply, move left and click close. Restart the computer. It will come back up in regular mode.

a work around if it is norton would be to remove norton and try AVG antivirus, is free

it problem persists, then it wasnt norton. Norton needs quite a bit of memory to run. If you dont have at least 512 mb in your system (more if your video card uses part of it), then you going to have problems.
