    Did you simply copy the files with your backup method or did you Move them. If you moved them that could cause damage if they were system files and cause it not to bootup. In anycase atleast you have a backup.

    Do you have a restore CD or does it have a prompt when you start it before windows loads to enter restore mode?

Dell latitude 10 st2 e wont boot


Hi voyagerbooks,

Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30 sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    (6)Try turning on the computer.

    If the computer doesn't turn on then check if the computer gives any series of beeps or if there are any diagnostics LEDs shown on it.

    Thanks and Regards.

My laptop has power but wont boot...please help


hi,

Try to boot you computer to safemode, turn off computer then turn it back on then keep on tapping F8, then choose safemode, if youre able to boot to safemode, do system restore going back to the time that its properly working, click start > all programs > accesories> system tools > system restore then pick a date when you think that its properly working..

If its not able to boot to safemode, you will need to reinstall the operating system using the recovery disc that came with the computer.


Hope this will help... Please rate...

Acer loops booting


Hi,
The problem is caused by bad drivers not being able to load up, when you are in safe mode perform a system restore and take the computer back to a date before the problems arose, the computer should boot up fine once system restore is complete.


Good luck

Des appplication?


Hi
Try booting up the computer in safe mode and then check for the startup items, if you see any program in the startup list try to remove it, close all the applications and then shut down and reboot your computer. This will definetly remove the application thats either not installed properly or thats trying to create a problem in booting up your computer.

Getting power but wont boot up or anything


pull out everything in the computer except what's required to boot...so any pci cards or video cards (if you have onboard video). you can also try pulling out the ram (while unpowered AND unplugged) and then booting to hear beeps...if you pull the ram out and the computer doesnt make a sound, its probably a bad motherboard and needs to be replaced. if you hear beeps, try replacing the ram or disconnecting other parts...like harddrives, optical drives, modems and what not.

hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? friend try to do this things. first i suggest to change new ide or sata cable.if still persist.try the following:
Boot order: Traditionally, a computer is set to boot first from the floppy drive, and then from the main hard drive (Drive C). This means that the computer will check the floppy drive first for boot files. If there is no disk in the floppy drive, the computer will then go to the hard drive to look for boot files. That is why if you leave a non-bootable floppy disk in the drive and try to boot up, you'll get an error message such as "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart." or "Non-system disk or disk error." This can be changed to pretty much any order, including CD and DVD drives. It is useful when installing Windows on a new or just-formatted computer to set the computer to boot first from a CD-ROM drive, and then insert the Windows installation CD-ROM into that drive. This saves you from having to use boot floppies that might or might not come with the Windows CD-ROM. Good luck.

Computer wont boot up


Hi Steve;
What exactly happened? Where you able to use it before it shuts down and did not boot up anymore? Is your CPU power Led lighted? Did you check if your monitor was powered ON? did you check all the cables at the back of your CPU? try it on another wall jack, just to isolate the problem sir. let me know. :)
