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.

I cannot access my lap top because someone changed my password


Hi bojo773...
Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F1,F2 or F8" as the laptop computer starts.(Depending on your computer)
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

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.

Lap top wont boot up past the windows screen


This generally indicates that a sector in the hard drive has failed, and the hard drive will need to be replaced. With a bad sector the drive reads to the point of the bad sector and past the bad sector, but can't put the info together, so it tries to boot, but can't. Unfortunately, your only option is replacing the hard drive.
