Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.

SOURCE: xp wont boot up, gives option of safe mode, safe mode with config, restore last work etc but none of these work? Any ideas

Hello,

Will it allow you to enter the safe mode? If so, and you can choose help and then restore you can back up to a date before this problem began. It sounds as if the MBR (master boot record) is contaminated.

If you made a set of restore discs when you got the computer, now is the time to use them. If you are lucky enough to have an original Windows disc, you can place that in the CD/DVD and go to the point where it asks if you want a complete install or repair an earlier on. Repair should do it, although it may still ask if you want to repair the MBR.

There are other options too, one of which is using the D: partition on your hard drive which contains restore, to restore your computer to the same state in which you bought it. However, this will lose all your data, and you will only have the programs like when it was brand new. Let me know if none of these work.

Emachines t5274 vertical blue lines during startup/XP.


It looks like you've got two issues. If you tried a different monitor and it too have vertical blue lines your video card might be bad, but hold that thought. I'm thinking you need to reload the operating system because you can't boot all the way up which is the second issue.

Have you tried to boot up in Safe Mode and do a System Restore? Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. When it boots, if it boots successfully things will look different in Safe Mode. The screen will be darker and icons bigger, but that's normal. If you get into the desktop successfully, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. If the system tells you that you have no restore points, then you will have to either Reload the Operating System or do a System Recovery. By the way, System Restore does not lose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, or programs unless the program was installed after the restore date. System Recovery LOSES EVERYTHING, it sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

My laptop wont go on to the desktop. It keeps telling something about launch start up repair but that aint working


There might be errors in the Windows Opeating System. This might have been caused by the recent hardware and software changes done to the PC. Try booting the computer into "Safe Mode", to do this, turn the pc on and while the computer starts up or right after you press the on button start tapping the "F8" key on your keyboard repeatedly until you see the "Windows Advanced Boot Options". From there select "Safe Mode" then press enter. If the computer boots into Safe Mode, you can try running a "System Restore" to restore the computer back to a date when it was working fine. Safe Mode can be accessed from Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Follow the on screen instructions.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

Problem


If you can boot to safe mode, try doing a restore.

When you turn on the system, just past the POST (before windows loads), hit the F8 key to get the menu between normal boot and safe mode.

When prompted, select SAFE MODE. Don't select safe mode with command prompt, or with networking. Just SAFE MODE.

Use the arrow keys to select SAFE MODE. If you need to log in, do so and proceed to launch windows.

Windows should launch in Safe mode. If it does, proceed to click on START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, SYSTEM TOOLS, SYSTEM RESTORE.

Select RESTORE MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER TIME. Click on NEXT. If you can, select a BOLD date preferably before your issue. Click NEXT. System will load some files, reboot and reload.

If you can't get to safe mode, there may be other problems holding your system up. Did you load anything prior to the messages?
