Preasrio f557us wont boot past the XP screen

I powered down this laptop properly the other night. When I got up the next morning and tried to start it I wouldn't go past the XP loading screen. It gets to the XP loading screen, sits there for a couple of seconds, flashes a blue screen with a giant error message and then reboots and repeats the process until you shut it off. The error screen is up for less than a second, so it's impossible to read. I have tried reseating the ram. And checked the bios settings. But that didn't work. Any suggestions?

Ram was your best bet on a laptop. But you can load XP onto itself so it reloads without deleting any files. However, if it still may fail. If that happens a clean install is your next step.

SOURCE: BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.

Hold down keys 6, 7 and Y as it boots - press quite hard. Basically, the graphics card is running too hot, and has become unsettled in the motherboard. it resides underneath the above keys, so when you hold them down on bootup, it makes the connection better. I've been doing this for about 2 years, on a 5 year old x1000 I bought when I lived in Taiwan.

Sounds crazy - because it is...

SOURCE: Boot from CD does not work.

You should definately be given the choice to boot from cd, when you press F2 to get into the bios and go to boot options, what boot options do you have?

If you go into the bios you should have the choice to boot from ide (hard drive), cdrom, floppy disk, network (on some) and try other boot media.

Are you going into the boot option in the bios by pressing F2.

SOURCE: I have a compaq presario x1000 that wont let me

It is likely that the hard drive is bad or a memory issue. I would start by removing the hard drive and see if it goes past the compaq screen. If it does then you know what is wrong. If not message me and will walk you through the next step

You need an antivirus program to be installed after installing your operating system. Do it in safe mode. If problem persists let me know.

Cannot start up my laptop since in done an update


Try booting into "Last known good configuration" it is on the same screen as Safe Mode, if that does not work, you can try to run CHKDSK /r from the windows install CD, just choose "Repair" in the option, if this does not work I suggest removing that hard drive and slaving it into another computer to get your data off and then reload Windows onto it. It is missing a .dll

It sounds to me like your cable is loose to the lcd or the video card is not properly 100 percent seeded into the mother board. Prolly the cable in one way or the other, perhaps bad cable.
