You didn't select safe mode using the up arrow key. Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot.

Dell dimension 3100 wont load to main screen


You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Hi, I have a toshiba equium A110-233, a little elderly I know ! All was working fine until I turned it on a couple of days ago and now only get the initial toshiba screen then nothing, not even the cursor...


Hi shirley_ann1,

This problem that you have with your PC is a NO BOOT issue. After getting the startup Toshiba logo it's not booting up to your Windows. This could be a hardware or software problem depending on the result of the diagnostics that I'll be walking you through below, but definitely this issue can still be fixed.

Here's how:

1. If this is a software issue you can determine it by booting up on safe mode. To go to safe mode:
  • Shutdown the computer then turn it back on
  • The moment you turn on you PC keep on tapping F8 button until Safe Mode menu shows.
  • Then select Safe Mode, press enter.
If you'll be able to boot up on Windows using Safe Mode then you just have to reload your operating system. You will use the recovery disc that goes with your machine when you purchase it.

2. If it's a hardware issue you will not be able to boot up even on Safe Mode or even go to BIOS when you keep on tapping F2 during startup. This means your harddrive is corrupted or defetive. It needs to be reimaged or replaced.

Hope this will help you resolve your concern.


Thank you for using Fixya.

Same problem!


I would boot the computer in safe mode and here is the instructions.
Learn how to start up in Safe Mode.
Products Affected Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.3, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.5
To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:
  1. Be sure the computer is shut down.
  2. Press the power button.
  3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before.
  4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
During startup in Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you will see "Safe Boot" on the login window, which appears even if you normally log in automatically.
During startup in Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.3.9, you will see "Safe Boot" on the Mac OS X startup screen.
To leave Safe Mode in any version of Mac OS X, restart the computer normally, without holding any keys during startup.


while your in safe mode see if you can uninstall the drive software and reinstall it

Will not open,then can't turn off


Try starting the PC in "safe mode (with network support) " by tapping the F8 key whilst it boots up and selecting safe mode from the menu. (Which bypasses your start-up items) If this boots up ok then the problem is a program that is starting up with windows, Check the start menu / programs / startup for any programs and remove them.
You can then downlaod a free program called "Spybot search and destroy" - run it, select "mode / advanced" - Tools - Startup and remove the offending item!
