Symptoms seem to indicate either corrupted or missing driver files (probably other corrupted files on hard drive as well).

You can boot into Safe Mode, then run Command Prompt, and type the following to try to correct corruption on the hard drive:
chkdsk c: /r

You will get a message telling you the drive is in use, and would you like to run on next restart. Type "Y" and hit enter, then restart the computer. Depending on the size of your hard drive, this could take hours to run, but be patient.

If this does not resolve your problem, the next thing to try is (in Command Prompt again) "sfc /scannow". You will need your installation disks as this program does a full System File Check and will ask for your installer CD/DVD to replace any missing or corrupt System files it finds.

I hope this helps...

SOURCE: freezing in 'safe mode'

Have you tried accessing the bios to set boot order? It may be trying to load from the hdd before the optical/usb drive.

During the flash screen, press F2 (though it can vary by maker) and change your boot order to load the USB drive first.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Hello! I've got a LG LW40 Express Laptop. Whenever

First, if you can run hard disk drive diagnostics, because many times a windows failure is based on the Hard Drive failing. If the Hard drive checks out, since you cannot access the Windows enviroment, you'll likely be re-installing Windows and loading drivers again. I hope your data is already backed up, otherwise it may be gone

Hp g8ooo turn on for two seconds then goes of


Check charger power supply, are you getting voltage? Otherwise, I'd try to boot into "safe" mode probably f8. Try a Disk check. If problem continues, even in the safe mode I'd go to install disk and try a repair (without loss of data) option. Hopefully you have backed up just in case. If you have backed up and still have problems you may want to do a "fresh" install, but that entails reinstallation of all software. Not fun. Good luck. I find tomshardware.com quite helpful.

My pc won't start not even in safe mode


you might as well turn off your laptop and remove the batteries and cable into it. And then, press and hold the power button for 8 secs. This will reset your power and operating system settings on your laptop. Then , reinsert the cables and battery into it. Turn on the laptop, and if you still cannot start even in safe mode, consult your PC provider so that they will help you back up the files and repair your laptop....

My Dell Inspiron 6000 (which I think I bought in


Have you tried this:
1. After removing the battery
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10 sec.
3. Put back the battery
4. Turn it on

if this doesnt work, there could be a problem with your operating system. Try accessing safe mode if you can login .TAP F8 continously on the dell logo screen, and it will open advance boot options. (Just select safe mode) If safe mode boots properly try running system restore to restore it back to the previous date where your computer is still booting to windows. Hope this helps

I have IBM LAPTOP thinkpad T43 SERIES. it was working tiil yesteraday. Suddenly it turns switch off. I thought its the problem with AC adapter. I bought a new one. It shows it turn it on but its switch...


It's not necessarily hardware related, can you boot into Bios? If you can try to boot info safe mode, that's F8 for most PCs. I would suspect something with your motherboard drivers, then again it could just be your battery. Not all laptops will operate with the battery out, there is some kind of failsafe to prevent overheating in some, because without a battery the power supply can be fried sometimes.

Hope this helps
