I have a problem with a driver @ PC startup.. Sometimes my PC boots properly and sometimes : "After ..booting the monitor doesn't display the desktop.. instead it looses display..the green LED turns Orange'
i repair my installation using the 2000 fast repair.. it repairs some
driver that loads @ d startup and then i am able to boot into 2000...problem gets solved...
problem occured with Windows XP also but since there was no option to
fast repair the boot ..XP always started the entire setup again...
repeated setups also do not solve the problem....so i tried to test
using windows 2000 professional...
I have come to know that somhow .... a boot fie gets corrupted .. (!!!) so that i have to fix it at every boot.... why it is happening?

since after fixing install it works fine........2. RAM is not
faulty....ihave tested it...3. I have a P3 800Mhz 256MB RAM 82810E

For starters the support for XP has been ended by Microsoft so no more updates it is now classified as a vulnerable operating system. Please upgrade to Windows 7 or better, if you are looking to troubleshoot when the computer is booting up tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu click on Startup in Safe mode, this will continue to boot the machine, enter your username and password then goto control panel, add remove programs and uninstall any software that you think could be causing this issue, reboot back this time without the F8 key and see if changes made have any effect on the operating system. Otherwise you can google you problem
Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 at startup until the boot menu appears. Then select "safe mode with networking". If it boots into safe mode then see if your missing some drivers in device manager. If you are then download and install them. Next run some anti-virus and anti-malware programs to make sure your system is clean.
Boot Manager is missing
If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error:
BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information
More Info MS KB 919529
More Info MS KB 927391
Check points for fixing missing boot-manager:
Check that your boot device is configured properly
Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".
Boot Manager is compressed
If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error:
BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
OR maybe try this first.
Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager:
Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".
If the above doesn't solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press "Load Drivers" (Instead of "Next") and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect "Compress this Drive" and choose Apply to sub-folders and files.
If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:
compact /U C:\bootmgr
compact /U C:\ntldr
If you for some strange reason have lost your Vista DVD, then you can also use a Windows 2000 / XP install CD and enter the recovery console instead and execute the following commands:
attrib -c c:\bootmgr
attrib -c c:\ntldr
Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
immediately run a diagnostics for the hdd alone power on laptop then keep tapping F12 then run the diagnostics. if no errors found then. try this. power on laptop then keep tapping on F8 to boot options then select last known good configuration. if same problem then boot in F8 then safe mode if still the same problem. use now the OS disc to do startup repair. Boot F12 then select DVD drive in booting make sure the OS media is already on the driver. then just select repair computer then make startup repair. if all fails this might end up reinstalling OS as clean installation.
All you have to do is to access the BIOS then set the option of first boot device as CD then the second boot device as HDD or hard disk. When you turn on your HP you should see the option to go to the BIOS Setup sometimes its F2 or F12 or Del Depending on the type of motherboard you have on your laptop. Once you set it to boot from CD , when you startup your computer you should see press any key to boot from CD just press any key and it will boot. After the installation change back the first boot device.
If you have any other questions do message me back.
Boot the system with your Windows XP installation disk. When the boot options window appears select R for recovery console. Once you have logged into the DOS session type: fixmbr and hit the enter or return key and select "y" for yes you want to do this. Type: fixboot and hit the return key again, hit "y" for yes.
you need to press f9 while its loading then go to command prompt, you want to then type in command bootrec.exe then bootrec/fixboot and ten bootrec/fixmbr ....sometimes its just bootup and other times it will be drivers or dhll files causeing your computer to not want to boot, if you have vista you can press the f9 at startup and go throught the recovery wizard there are plenty of options there, i tend to have the same problems, but sometimes if i have something hooked into my usb ports it causes the boot up problem, so i unhook everything and reboot and it works. if you need any more information you can message me at firstname.lastname@example.org i have a ton more options you can do if this one i just gave you doesnt work.
