Try Safe Mode then Last Known Configuration, but, that's just a shot in the dark because after you reboot then the last boot is your Last Known Configuration..the next step is to try Revovery Console. You put your Windows CD in and let it run for a few minutes. Eventually you will come to a screen that ask to setup or repair. Press R for recovery console. This will bring you to a DOS command prompt. At the command prompt type fixboot or fixmbr if fixboot does not work the first time. What has happened is your Master Boot Record which loads Windows is corrupt so the fixboot/fixmbr fixes the Master Boot Record. If that does not work then you'll have to reload the operating system. Have you made a backup of your docs, favorites, email lately? as a install will wipe it out...however if it gets to that point then let me know and maybe we can at least save some of the data.
Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.

    Did you read my solution at all? Wiping your hard drive clean is a last resort and anyone who tells you to do that first is not giving you good advice..

it is recommended to this service at least
once every 8 months, it wipes all your hard
drive from data, programs, bugs, errors and viruses
this will 100% solve your problem guaranteed.

for xp/ insert the installation disk
to be cleared you don’t need a specific disk made to your computer

cd will do this the same apply to vista. So buy, borrow or download any OEM
not pirate version of the original operating system that is specified in your
Windows sticker. The oem cds can be found on ebay they should cost less
Than $10 or £10 do not buy the license version because your already have
The license underneath the laptop. “coa” is the sticker with the serial number
Which will be asked for in the middle of the installation.

restart the computer and a message will
come up asking to press any key to boot
from cd. once you do that "i mean you press a key"
then a blue screen will load then asks you
to press Enter to install xp.

1. press enter
2. select the partion and press enter
3. select continue "it warns you to delete files"
4. select format "quick"
5. now let it do the rest and follow instructions
6. when the installation is finished you'll notice
its like new again, some computers will need
drivers which you can get from manufacturer
website. download and install them.

that's it but for a detailed information click here
for vista here’s how click here

Dell freezes up after reformat.


i recommend loading in safe mode and uninstalling your graphics drivers and installing the drivers from support.dell.com the reason i say this is because the graphics drivers windows wants to use via windows update occasionally will call erratic system behavior. you can also load in safe mode and go to start>accessories>administrative tools> event viewer. or simply press the windows key and the r key at the same time and type eventvwr and press enter. once there go through the logs and look for red X's or exclamations (can't remember which off hand) and see if you can find out what happens when it crashes.

My pc will not log into ebay - fine on everything else


Sounds like a virus issue.
First, you will need to disable all viruses from loading at startup:1. Turn on your laptop.2. As soon as you see anything on the screen, Tap the F8 key once per second3. Select safe mode and hit ENTER4. Once you log into Windows, go to start -> run -> type: msconfig -> hit enter5. Select "services" tab -> check "hide all microsoft services" -> then "disable all"6. Select "startup" tab -> "disable all"7. Click OK and Restart
After loading Windows normally, download and run Hitman Pro 3.51. Download: Hitman Pro2. Scan using quick scan.3. Setup page: select "No, I only want to perform a one-time scan ..."4. If it finds anything, select free cleanup.
Once your computer is clean. Restore msconfig to normal:1. go to start -> run -> type: msconfig -> hit enter2. In the General Tab -> select "Normal Startup"3. Press Ok and Restart

Gateway Gt5412 virus has taken over my administrator rights what can i do


The first thing you need to do is restart your computer and directly after the BIOS screen loads press F8 until you get a Windows menu. In this menu, navigate to "Safe Mode with Networking" and press Enter. It'll take a couple of minutes to load the drivers and present you with the log in screen. Go ahead and log in, and open a web browser and download Malware Bytes from: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol;1.
After it is done downloading, install it and let it update the virus definitions. When this is done, run the program (You don't need to start the trial) and run a full scan. Any infected files will be listed and the program will let you remove them. After the files are removed, Malware Bytes will probably ask you to restart your computer. Go ahead and do so and let it boot normally. Log in and see if the virus is gone. If not, reboot into safe mode, start up Malware Bytes again and do another scan.
I hope this helps!

It's time to reinstall the operating system--you have had a virus destroy the boot/load sector, thus the lag.

The problem has been a series of smaller problems which progressively resulted in a lock or freeze. The few times it does not freeze, a screen flashes on selling a Spyware protection. I think my husband...


Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 
  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.
If that doesn't work, than reinstall windows.
If you need further assistance, let me know.
Avast is the best free antivirus there is. google it, install it, and enjoy your computer again.Another option is to reinstall windows. If you have the cd that came with the computer than put it in the cd rom and restart your computer and follow onscreen instructions.
