It may just be a default setting in the new BIOS. Enter the BIOS setup and check the SATA mode - I've seen this occur with the ACHI mode for example. Otherwise you could try Safe Mode and see if you can get into Windows at all. You can also press F8 while booting and select the option to Disable Automatic Reboot so that you can see the Error that is occuring for further diagnosis.

    Safe Mode can be accessed by pressing F8 while booting.

The text on my pc keeps going blue, how can I stop it?


Windows allows you to change the themes of your computer. This includes the wallpaper, the screensaver when your computer is idle, any noises it makes, and even the color of the toolbars and windows. Sometimes, however, when you restart your computer, the theme will revert back to the Windows default theme, which is called Aero. This can be because you have not disabled Aero, because your performance settings are using too much energy, or because your screen resolution is too high or low for the theme you are using.
Screen Resolution b> The higher your screen resolution, the sharper the images and text will appear. Sometimes, however, the of the wallpaper for the theme is not the same as the screen resolution. This can cause your theme to revert back to the default. To fix this, click the "Start" button. Then click "Control Panel." In the "Control Panel" window click "Adjust Screen Resolution" under "Appearance and Personalization." Select the resolution that is the same as your wallpaper. b> Performance Settings b> If your computer is running on high performance settings, your computer's energy will be used quickly and Windows may automatically change the screen saver to keep the energy from running to low. To change your performance settings, open the "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Then click "Change Battery Settings" under "Power Options" and select "Power Saver" or "Balance." b> Disable Aero b> Aero is the default theme setting for Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you try to change your theme and it reverts back to Aero, it is because Aero is still not disabled. To disable Aero, right-click on your desktop and click "Personalize." A window of all the themes on your computer will open. You will see "My Themes," which are any themes you have created, and "Aero Themes" under it. To disable Aero, click "Save Theme" under "My Themes" to make your current settings default, or select one of the themes under "My Themes." This will make that theme the default. b> Troubleshooter b> If you still cannot figure out why Windows changes the theme back to the default after restarting, you can use Windows's built-in troubleshooter. The troubleshooter will find the source of the problem and automatically fix it for you. To use the troubleshooter for your theme, open the "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Then click "Troubleshoot Common Problems." Under "Action Center," select "Appearance and Personalization." The troubleshooter will run. When you restart after it completes its action, your theme should stay the same. Hope this helps.

I've been at this all day and still have'nt gotten my laptop to reset to a factory default setting. Can you please guide me through this process, step by step. Thankyou.


You can always restore the computer to a point when it was working fine.
For a laptop when you say factory defaults we've two things
1)Factory defaults on the Bios - as soon as u turn on the laptop we press F8 key or DEL(depends on the brand of the laptop) to get to the BIOS and you've an option to revert to the factory defaults.
It is advisable not touch the BIOS if you are not sure about this firmware
2)The operating system (lik windows xp,vista & 7) there is nothing called factory defaults for this all we've is a installation of the Operating system itself. However we can revert or restore back to last know good configuration mode.


How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER

When i press power on; F2 set up and F12 boot options appear and nothing else happens and i dont know what to press next for ti to start up.


Are you trying to reinstall your OS? Or just trying to boot to normal mode?
If the first is your case, you have to choose booting with CD drive in order for your system to boot on your CD Installer.
However, if the second is your case, you don't need to press F2 and F12 after powering on. If you encounter this without your BIOS changed, try reverting it back to BOOT on HARD DRIVE. That is when you are in the BOOT OPTIONS, select HARD DRIVE and press ENTER.

Compaq Q60-615DX has reverted to earlier Windows xp edition.


I would take it back where you bought it.
If you are having multiple problems like this, and there is nothing of value on the hard drive, i would re install windows.
The appearance looks like a graphics driver problem, or maybe you need to right click on desktop / personalize and see if you are on windows classic theme

LAPTOP BLANK SCREEN


Hi,
Try booting the laptop up in safe mode.
To do this restart the laptop and hit F8 as it starts, choose safe mode and see if the laptop boots up. If it does select system restore and restore the system back to before you installed the update.
When the laptop restarts it should tell you if the restore was successful.


Good luck.

My cousin tried to download something and he thinks he got a virus that corrupted his system, because now his thinkpad t7250 will not boot, always reverting to the 'start windows normally/last working...


Sounds like windows is corrupted. You did not mention if you have tried, or are able to boot into safe mode. If you can then back up your data to some external storage as you will need to repair or do a clean install of the operating system from the disc. there may even be an option to restore factory settings. If your system boots to the bios screen then your hardware is O.K.
