Sounds like your O/S is corrupt. Can you get to setup? Make sure your hard drive is in the correct boot order.

Laptop gets stuck welcome screen when


It sounds to me like a file is corrupt and there is a number of reasons for that. If you press F8 just before it tries to boot, you will have access to a menu. Try running safe mode to see where the issue is.

To run Toshiba Recovery:
Choose the Repair Menu in the Windows boot menu (Press and hold F8 at the Toshiba SplashScreen.
Or
Hold the Zero key during Power Up.
If that doesn't work, you may need to order a Recovery Disc from Toshiba.

Acer laptop stuck on Windows boot manager


1. Restart the Acer Aspire netbook by pressing the "power" button on the netbook's keyboard or by pressing the "CTRL," "ALT" and "DEL" keys at the same time.
2. During startup, hold down the "F8" function key immediately when you see the "Acer" splash screen and the option for entering "Setup."

3. Keep pressing the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" menu appears.
If you receive a "keyboard error," restart the Acer Aspire and repeat step 2.

4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Safe Mode" selection on the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.
The arrow keys are located on the right-hand side of the Acer Aspire keyboard.

5. Press the "Enter" key to execute the "Safe Mode" selection.
The Windows operating system will now start in "Safe Mode" and you can perform a system restore or make needed changes to get your Acer Aspire to boot normally again.

Setup is starting services


Hi,

First try to check if you can log to your computer via Safe Mode, if you can then there is a few possible things happened to your computer:
1. Corrupted software installation that is messing up with your startup services.
2. Hardware problem (memory or bad sector in the hard disk)
3. Or Operating system or malware.

Anyway for the step to test if you can log in via Safe mode try the steps below:
Reference: Safemode
Open Safe Mode with the F8 key

All Windows versions can be booted into Safe Mode by this method. Note that it is somewhat tricky to time this procedure and it may take several attempts.

1. Turn on or restart your computer.
2. Hold down the F8 key before the Windows logo appears. If the computer makes a complaining noise, tap the F8 key repeatedly instead of holding it down.
3. If a Windows logo or "Windows starting" appears, wait until Windows loads. Then restart the computer and try pressing F8 again.
4. Once you are successful, a menu will appear with a number of boot options. Use an arrow key to navigate to "Safe Mode" and press the Enter key.

Trying to get to Safe Mode by using the F8 key can be frustrating and there is another way that uses the System Configuration Utility (msconfig).


Best Regards,

Ideapad Z560 neither accessing BIOS setup or is starting normally


Your bios seems corrupted. You will probably need to reflash from a thumb drive which is bootable. The F2 should get you to booting screen to access the thumb drive to boot from to flash the bios.

HELP. my laptop will not go past the stating up of toshiba. have tried the f12 and f8 and it just says loading but nothing happens


Have you tried a "Cold-Start" ? unplug laptop, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10secs or so. Replace battery, plug in laptop, re boot. Does it get to the pre-boot stage? does it show the options BOOT MENU, SETUP, BIOS or similar options?

My compaq nc6000 did not start up. The proplem happen when I shut down for 4 days. anyone help!


Leaving a computer switched off for any length of time shouldn't matter. I have had laptops that have not been powered up for 5 years and they power up without a problem once the battery has charged and the BIOS backup cell is replaced.

I would suggest that if you were to press F8 when it is booting up, just at the point when the BIOS menu closes and choose Safe Mode,. Get it to boot from there and it may recover itself. If it doesn't do the same action but choose Recover as an option and follow the prompts.
I hope that helps.

My computer starts to boot then once it is completed the a message comes up saying there is an error and then a blue screen comes up and reboots itself. THis continues and does not stop


When starting up, press the F8 key to catch the Boot Menu. Select the option to disable automatic restart on system failure. Boot and when it fails the Blue Screen will remain for you. Look near the top and see what file has been identified as the failure i.e. NV4_disp.dll. (Google the file name to see what program or hardware the failed file is associated with) Press and Hold the power button to shut down. Turn the computer back on and press the F8 key again to catch the Boot menu, and select Safe mode. If allowed into Safe Mode, try to go into Device Manager and either disable the failing device, or remove the associated program. If this doesn't work you can try to do a system restore to a date before this error started to appear. If you post back the file causing the blue screen, I can instruct you further.
