    My stupid computer sais: " Media test failure, check cable, exiting broadcam PXE ROM, No bootable deivce -- insert boot disk and press any key." I hit Ctrl+Alt+Dlt, and it restarts, when i hit f2, to take it to the boot settings, there is like practically nothing to do, and the just keeps repeating itself.

    When you boot your computer it checks a series of things like memory, etc. If it has any problems it will give you beep sounds or some lights will turn on, like where you have the usb sign etc. Can you notice anything like that happening? Also does it do nothing whatsoever, or at least the normal first black screen with the power on self test info it still shows?

What is the f2,f8, r f12 want work? only the Ctrl+ Alt+ del that wroks


F2 usually takes you to the BIOS setup screen, you need to hit the keys as soon as you power up.

F12 selects on a Dell instant boot menu to select booting from CD-ROM, USB, etc rather than the BIOS options.

F8 goes to safe mode start up for windows, this must be done before the windows logo comes up (ie when it is a black screen).

Control - Alt -Delete Keys together can be used any time, after windows boots as it tells it to re-boot the computer, back to start up.

Tip

Having Ctrl+Alt+Delete Code in your Login Screen (Great for Secure PC)


Open the Advanced User Accounts panel by typing in netplwiz into the start menu search box, and hitting enter. Then click the Advanced tab.

Just check the box, and the next time you login, you'll see the screen saying "Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE".

NOTE: IF YOU PRESS SOMETHING INCORRECTLY, IT MAKES A SOUND (A BIG ONE)!

Boots up but screen is blank unless ctrl+alt+delete before windows splash screen.


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

Model is Satellite A135-S4727. Boots up in safe mode, but black screen when I try to do anything from there. I removed the battery and went to ac. Screen when booting works and I see the that it is...


when it goes to the black screen give it a few seconds after the mouse shows up. Ctrl+Alt+Del and select task manager, then select the process tab. click on explorer, then right click on it and select end process from the pop up menu. once it has disappeared go back to the first tab programs. click new task, type explorer and hit enter. see where it gets you from there. if that doesnt help please recover your computer per manufacture instructions.

Hi, i want to set up cd drive on first boot. How do i can access to setup?


If I don't know what computer you have It makes helping you more difficult.

Here are some options for different computers:

  • Turn on the computer, immediately hit the F2 button. - Most computers with Phoenix BIOS.
  • Turn on the computer, during POST hit the Delete button - Most computers with AMI BIOS
  • Turn on the computer, hit Ctrl+Alt+F3, Ctrl+Alt+Ins, or Fn+F1 - Older Lenovo.
  • Turn on the computer, immediately hit the F10 button. - Some Dell computers.
  • Turn on the computer, hit Fn+Esc or Fn+F1. Older Dell laptops.
If you tell me exactly what you have, I'll tell you exactly what to do ;)

Gateway/vista black screen with no ctrl+alt+del but a nice cursor


Try this, before it boots up and just after in posts press F8, it should bring up a page where you can choose your boot option, choose "Safe Mode", if the computer does boot to safe mode there are a few steps you can do to remedy this.

First goto my computer, c:drive/windows and scroll down to a folder called prefetch open the folder, highlight everything in that folder by left clicking once on one of the icons and holding control(ctrl) then pressing A once everything is highlighted hold down the shift key and press delete, everything should now be gone, exit out of all the windows do a disk clean up, my computer right click on c:drive (your main drive) and click on disk cleanup tick all boxes and then click ok to start deleting the temp files. once finished reboot mechines and leave it to boot up. if you still are having problems or it wont boot up into safe mode post back. cheers.

When I turn computer on the windows boot manager screen comes up. It says windows is having problems communicating with a device on the computer. It says this error could be caused by a removable storage...


Sometimes when you use ram sticks on some older computers they do not handle taking teh ram stick out of the USB port without first closing out teh device OR if you have the RAM stick in while you are booting the machine... it will select the ram stick as the boot device and appear there is no oprerating system present.

In you case when you go to the boot menu.. be sure the boot menu is set to select the hard drive as the primary boot device. If it is not then you can make the change at teh bott up screen.

My Satellite A40/A45 Series won't boot up.


If NTLDR is missing, you will need to do one of two things:

1) follow this link and follow instructions to create a NTLDR boot disc and get back up and running

or

2) boot to Windows CD and repair Windows installation

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
