Reboot into Safe Mode. While rebooting keep tapping the F8 to go to Safe Mode. Once there select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter. If that doesnt work continue to select Safe Mode and press Enter. Once there you can do system restore to an earlier good date, run a scandisk, disk defrag, remove un needed programs, run anti-virus, run spyware

If still that doesnt work, reboot into Safe Mode again and select "Repair your computer" and press Enter.

let me know how it goes

Two to three hours is a long time! It sounds like your hard drive is getting ready to crash.

If your computer is running, click Start and, in the search box, type

eventvwr

and press enter. (If you have XP, click Start -> Run and type eventvwr).

Under Windows Logs, click System. On the right side, click Source. All the events will sort by source. Scan the list for any "disk" errors. If you are getting disk errors, your hard drive is crashing. You should either take your computer to a competent professional to get the hard drive imaged, or purchase a new hard drive and do the imaging.

SOURCE: very long start up it takes 2-3 hrs...

Hey pinas all you need to do is disable the startup by doing the following steps

start -> run-> msconfig ->startup->disable all->restart ->put a check on the dialogue box which says dont show me this message again after the restart.

Now it really important to scan your system for protected files which needs to be restored in their original form.
Insert windows xp disc in the drive
start ->run->sfc /scannow->enter
and it will do every thing on its own.

In the last scan your system with mcafee 8.5i antivirus enjoy.

The boot file is misplaced in your PC. to solve the problem boot it from an OS installation disk. then when you get the phase of installing there will be an option called "repair your computer". click on it and follow the instructions..(takes under 5 minutes) also use startup check to remove common errors..i can give you an accurate description if you post the correct OS i can give more accurate steps.

If you deleted all the system settings, it's hard to recovery it by no other resources. So reinstall is the only options most likely.
It depends your OS X system version to decide how to recover.
If it's below OS X 10.7, there might be a DVD disk came with your Mac computer, use that DVD disk to boot your machine to reinstall OS X. Otherwise, there should be a recovery volume could be used to boot.

To boot from DVD, take look at: "Troubleshooting Mac OS X installation from CD or DVD"<http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2956>.
Too boot from Recovery volume: OS X: About OS X Recovery <http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4718>
Here is a big picture of OS X recovery: http://www.apple.com/osx/recovery/

Or go to any Apple Store to get genus tech help.

Ref http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1533 to boot into different mode.

Format my note book


Hello, At first, you need to install OS. When Acer is starting up press F2, and you are in setup. Go to Boot tab, than make your first boot drive CD, by pressing F6 - for up, or F5 for down. Then put your CD with OS in drive and restart. When it says press any key to boot from CD, do it. After that OS setup will start, and then follow the instructions. I suggests you to split your HDD on 2 partition (C:/ and D:/), and then install OS on C:. When your OS has been installed go to http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx and download needed drivers for your notebook.
Sincerelly, Steve TM

Vista Home Edition Driver Problems


Hi Ajay.

It would be best if you take a back up of important files from your OS drive and make a clean installation of the OS again. There might be an issue of corrupt OS files.


Hope that solves it.

Booting


the following id taken from my own XP media centre laptop.

line 1 [boot loader]
line 2 timeout=30
line 3 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
line 4 [operating systems]
line 5 multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Media Center Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


ignore the "line 1,2,3 etc" I added them for clarity the formatting in this answer pane messes up the last line.

also before you get to edit the start up file make sure that the default operating system listed is the sae as line 5 starting from the "

hope this helps.

Reformatting problem


Do you mean that you are re-loading windows? if you are when it reboots after re-loading and it says boot/start with cd-rom support do not press enter again or anything else for that matter because if you do it will keep taking you through the whole process again. Once it has loaded and reboots do not press anything it will start windows( even though it gives you the option to start with cd-rom support - just ignore it), itself and take you to the welcome screen etc... once this happens you can take the disk out.

Start-up boot


What OS controls the bootloader? Is it linux or Windows? I had the same problem when i deleted ubuntu, the bootloader remains and i cannot boot windows. I then placed the windows CD and loaded recovery console. Im not sure of the command but I think it was "fixMBR" or something similar. Just type help for the commands.
