You need to have a CD/DVD of the version of windows you are running. Set the laptop to boot from that media. Once the computer is loading files from the media, look for a quick prompt to hit a key (I can't remember which key it is, F2 maybe) to reapir your computer. Again you must have the media inserted in the drive to repair the OS.

Some how you have entered the bios.(either by hitting F1, F2, F12, for the delete key while in boot) simply restart your computer and everything will be fine. 3_31_2014_4_39_12_am.png

Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell what file has been corrupted or missing you might be able to work your way through problem if you are unable to find a solution

restart back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time
click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option

hope this helps

I turned off my computer all of a sudden before it saved settings.the next time i turned on my computer, all icons were not there and windows installer is not working. micro soft office is also not...


Maybe you can try this.....IF you have Windows 7 Operating System...AND If you have previously made an "External Start-up /Repair Disk" for your PC....While the PC is running, insert it into your external CD-ROM disk drive, then shut down/restart your PC. I have had to use this external Startup/Repair Disk several times with my Windows 7 system when it had problems...or the PC just would not boot up....and it corrected my Win7 operating system start-up system / software problems successfully. Hope fully your PC Bios "setup" is setup to go look at the external drive during startup mode to see if their is a "boot" disk in there. Your PC Manual should tell you how to change the PC Bios system Setup so that when you start it up, the PC will look at the external CD-ROM drive for the presence of a boot-up start program like the Windows External Start/Repair disk.

Hope this helps. Gary
This Startup/Repair Disk is created by the PC User after early operatation the PC operating system... based on instruction manual from the PC maker. If you have Windows 7 and did NOT make this external startup/repair CD-ROM disk...I recommend you do that ASAP...and try it out.

Ghost disc will not boot, not recognized as valid windows copy


If it's a Norton disk, call Norton, it should be bootable. If it's a disk you burned, it may not be a bootable system disk. Make sure your computer is set to boot from CD/DVD drive in the bios (setup) Press F2(usually, sometimes it's delete) while booting, go into setup, and make sure under boot devices/sequence that your disk drive is first in the boot sequence. Try the disk on another machine to see if it's the disk, or the machine. If it's the disk, Call Norton (if it's theirs) or have someone make another one for you.
