Need to know how to start recovery cant get past the windows boot manager error software or hardware change might be the cause


Usually of you're getting that kind of message it means that you might have install a software or hardware that cause the problem for your pc. There are different steps to solve your problem

1. You need to put your computer to safe mode so that you can go to the windows start up screen.
To do that just follow this steps:
> you need to restart your computer first, after you see the boot up screen you need to press on the
F5 button on your keyboard
> this will let you choose to boot on safemode, safemode with networking, safemode with
> you need to choose safemode only, then click on enter
2. Once you have the windows start up screen you need to do the following
> Click on Start
> Click All Programs
> Click Accessories
> Choose System Tools
> choose System Restore
3. Then you need to choose a certain date prior to the last installation you have made
> automatically your computer will restore the configuration for this date
> it will restart and you just need to wait for it

4. If this will not work, I suggest for you to better have your Windows Operating Sytem (example:
XP, Vista) to be installed because your OS might have encountered an error\

Hope this will help resolve your issue. Have a Great day. ^_^

My laptop comes on and all I can get is the Vista screen and the message 'installing 3 of 3 updates 0% complete. Please don't shutdown your computer'. I can't get a menu or anything. What can I do to get...

Your computer has downloaded and installed a few updates. You need to allow the laptop to complete this sequence of events. Once completed your computer will boot just like normal. If you do shutdown the computer before the installation is complete you may have to download and install the same updates again. This is perfectly not take your computer to a repair shop!

Please wait message

The easiest solution is to unplug the AC adapter and pull the battery. This will shut off the laptop.
Once it is off let it sit about 10-20 seconds then put the battery back in and plug in the AC adapter.
You should now be able to press the power on button and it should boot up. It may give you a screen saying the last time it shutdown it was not good. Just pick to boot with last known good configuration and you will be fine.

Laptop goes off

If a computer shuts itself down suddenly after 10-15 minutes it's usually down to oveheating. clean the filters and ensure that there is good airflow around the computer when you use it. you can keep an eye on temperature and control your fans with this program

you might need to buy a laptop cooler like this

which sits underneath it and blows cool air in
