Your boot up file is damaged. On that same screen it should give you an option to use the last know good configuration. use that one and it should solve your problem.

My lap top freezes every time I try to log in


In order to help you I need you to answer a couple questions first.
1. Which Operating System are you running? (Window or OS X) 2. Before this started happening did you install anything new or click on something, by mistake, that you may not have known what it was?

If it is windows, try going in to safe mode. You can do this by pressing F8 at the top of the keyboard multiple time when the computer turns on, keep pushing F8 till you get a menu in which you see the option for safe mode. If you are able to load that then windows is ok, it is something installed (incompatible software or malware). Once in safe mode go to the start button, either search for system restore or go to programs-> accessories ->system tools ->system restore and try to restore to a time before this problem began to happen.
Hope this helps.

Lap top wont work at all says hard drive problem detected and in safe mode. safe mode comes uo in all 4 corners of screen


Hello,

You mentioned it boot in safe mode, if it's showing the taskbar where the start button is, then do the system restore. Click start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore. Select the previous date that the laptop was working fine the laptop will restart by itself once done. If this process does not resolve the issue, do system recovery (reformat) using the recovery disc that came with the laptop.

goodluck.

I have a dell inspiron lap top with window's vista. There is a problem with it. Even when I turn it on with safe mode it goes to the log in screen, then says welcome, and then it goes to a black screen...


Usually what happens with my Dell Inspiron desktop, even on safe mode it goes to the logon screen. I have never experienced that with my Dell Inspiron 1318. When you log in and it shows you the black screen, try pressing the function buttons. Try F8 or F12. You should be able to start the computer in Safe Mode. If possible, enter Safe Mode with Networking so that you are able to search the web. If you don't mind me asking, why is it that you need safe mode? Is it a virus?

Safe mode has a limited access only. Meaning, you cannont change settings from control panel or some application unless you are log in to Windows as Administrator and not in Safe mode.

Windows did not start succesfully


Start in safe mode to see if it is capable of starting without the drivers - if so, click start > accessoties > tools, and follow prompts to restore to an earlier time (when the pc worked).

ADVENT KC550P Lap Top scren


the pc is standing at command prompt, which means it is unable to find the boot.ini file required to boot into windows

When you say you pressed F8 did you keep pressing it until you got a menu saying Safe Mode,last known good configuration, start in VGA mode etc, if so use last known good configuration and let it reboot.

If still nothing then you will need the windows cd to perform a system repair.

My HP laptop, Operating system windows XP, not working in normal mode


Your operating system may be corrupt, if you DO NOT have anything important on it order your recovery disks through the manufacture, and restore it, or there could be a hardware problem bring it into Best Buy so they can run some tests on it...

I don`t have any picture on screen when i start my laptop. Is there only white screen,bud i`am listen from speakers windows is booted normaly...


try to boot in safe mode.
  1. Press F8 again and again while making switch on you lap till you get the boot option screen
  2. Then select Safe mode

  • If your windows starts and you can see on the screen, that means your display driver is missing, install driver for VGA and reboot in normal mode.
  • If even in safe mode you can't see any pic on the screen it means there is some problem in your display LCD and its time to take a tour to service centre

Thanks
