If you cant load into any of them modes then you need to recover your computer back to its factory state, this will mean you will *lose all your data on the computer*.

If you have data then take it into a pc store or use a IDE/ATA to USB adapter to copy your data onto another computer.

But to begin the recovery on most hp's and compaqs you press F10 or F11(keep tapping till you get a beep from the pc).

When the recovery screen shows follow the on screen instructions to recover the computer

Hi, sounds to me that you are having a software problem. When you boot the laptop choose the Last know good configuration option to see if that will correct the problem.

Sir i have hp compaq cq40 laptop having win xp .it got effected by some virus . whenever i try to boot it it gives error in some blue screen nd stops processing without booting up windows


Try starting the laptop in SAFE MODE.

To do this turn it off and wait 20 seconds. Then press the power button to restart, and as it is starting up press F8 every second or so until you get a screen that offers options - one of these options is to start in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. Select this option and the laptop will start up Windows in SAFE MODE. The screen will display in low resolution (Large icons etc.)

From here you have the ability to run anti-virus software and diagnose problems. If you don't have anti-virus then try downloading MalwareBytes (google it) and run that - it is a free virus and malware detector.

If your machine will not start in safe mode you may have a hardware problem.

How do I get into safe mode on HP mini 1000? XP OS


To get into safe mode on any computer running Windows you press F8 before or right after the Windows splash screen comes up. You will have three options for safe mode:

Safe Mode: Only the absolutely necessary drivers load.

Safe Mode with Networking: Same as above plus the ability to use the internet/network access

Safe Mode with Command Prompt: Boots into safe mode with a Command Prompt for command line work.

Hope this helps.

Command promt not openin


Hi,

You may try rebooting your computer to Safe mode w/networking. Try your command prompt in safe mode with networking. Download and run the program on the link. This would fix the registry of your system.

You need to run the registry checker on this application as well. You will have the option to fix the corrupted registry..

If you can access the command prompt. Insert your windows XP or VISTa cd then on the command prompt. run this command

sfc /scannow

Restart your computer.

Kind regards,

Jeff

Safe mode


When you first start the machine, keep hitting the F8 key until it comes to a screen with the prompt to enter safe mode. There will be several other selections as well, but you will be able to enter safe mode at this point.

Windows XP fails to load and Computer will not start up.


Boot from startup floppy disks or CD-ROM, choose repair option during setup, and run Recovery Console. When you are logged on, you can run FIXMBR command to fix master boot record. This should solve your problem.
