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,

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?

Starts to begin resuming windows and loads about 1/3 of the bar and stops (locks up) pushing F8 does nothing.


I have two solutions for you.

(1) Start your PC and as soon as you start start pressing F8 again and again. You will see a menu. From the menu select "Boot in safe mode" Select that and try to enter the Windows an uninstall any driver or software that you have installed just recently, This software or driver may be your problem.
(2)Insert the CD/DVD and boot from it and start repairing your Windows.

Good Luck!

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.

Emachince t3604 with vista wont boot just a blank screen tried to get bios screen safe mode etc. but nothing shows on the monitor. n e advice?


Make sure --- turn power off, leave off for 30 seconds. Power up again, holding the F2 key down. This WILL take your eMachines into Setup (BIOS). If it doesn't then your keyboard is most likely defective. If it does get you to setup, press F10 and Enter. Reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del and this time hold the F8 key down ... just hold it down till something happens, choose Start in Safe Mode with Network Support. Again if F8 doesn't work probly says Keyboard is bad. This is for whatever Operating System you are using.

ADVENT KC550P Lap Top scren


the pc is standing at command prompt, which means it is unable to find the boot.ini file required to boot into windows

When you say you pressed F8 did you keep pressing it until you got a menu saying Safe Mode,last known good configuration, start in VGA mode etc, if so use last known good configuration and let it reboot.

If still nothing then you will need the windows cd to perform a system repair.
