You need to repair you OS. You can do it by booting up with your Windows CD.

then "set up windows xp"

press F8

then at the drive selection " where your windows xp is installed" Press "R"

don't worry it won't reformat your drive, its going to repair the damage it has.

Dell inspiron 5315 when trying to boot up it say power save how to fix


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell what file has been corrupted or missing you might be able to work your way through problem if you are unable to find a solution

restart back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time
click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option

hope this helps

Hi .. i want to login to administrator in safe


If it can't start in safe mode, you've got bigger issues. You'll probably have to do an OS rebuild. First, try starting from a Windows install disk and go into the repair console. From there, run chkdsk on the reported hard drives. Then try booting into safe mode again. If it still won't, you'll have to do an OS rebuild repair.

Hi my computer will only come on in safe mode wont go on internet and when i try to do anything it tells me im not authorised


You may have to resort to re-formatting your computer and restoring it to day one. You might have gotten a virus that hijacked your computer. One way to check is bootup in safe mode and try sustem restore. Also in the boot up page just after your bios boot, see if there is an option available to select called " Boot to last known working configuration"


Hope this helps

Laptop Startup


hi dear

oh so sorry to hear that

this methode for windows Xp

and let try this

Microsoft Windows Vista users Tip: If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration. Additional information about this mode can be found on document CH000626
To get into the Windows Vista Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Choose Advanced Options for: Microsoft Windows Vista
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable low-resolution video (640x480)
Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
Directory Services Restore Mode
Debugging Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Disable Driver Signature Enforcment
Start Windows Normally
Description: Start Windows with only the core drivers and services. Use
when you cannot boot after installing a new device or driver.

ok
