Restoring Windows XP operating system can be performed in DOS mode if XP's system restore tool cannot be accessed because of booting issues or when the XP recovery CDs are unavailable. There are two steps to this procedure: first, the XP system restore tool must be accessed using the DOS menu and second, the actual XP system restore is performed.
Start the computer and press the F8 key when the manufacturer's logo appears but before the Windows XP logo appears. Scroll through the menu options using the down arrow key. Select "Safe mode with a Command prompt" and hit the Enter key. Type in the administrator ID and password. Hit "Enter." Type in this code in the command prompt box to access the XP system restore tool: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe. Hit "Enter." The XP system restore tool will open. b> How to Restore Windows XP b> Click "Restore my Computer to an Earlier Time" when the XP system restore tool starts. Click "Next." Choose a restore point before your operating system began to malfunction. Click "Next" and "OK." Click "Next" to begin the XP restoration process. Do not turn off the computer or attempt to stop the system restore tool, as this may damage the hard drive. The system restore tool will automatically restart the computer when it has finished restoring the operating system. Hope this helps.
Hi, at startup try pressing f8, this should give you a menu, select 'start windows with last good configuration', this should restore windows to the state before it started rebooting randomly. Failing that...try starting in 'safemode with command prompt' and then do a 'system restore'- press f8 again at start up and then follow the instructions below. this should restore your system to a previous state when the computer wasn't doing random things.
Restart your computer, and then press and hold F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in safe mode with a Command prompt.
Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode with a Command prompt option.
If you are prompted to select an operating system, use the arrow keys to select the appropriate operating system for your computer, and then press ENTER.
Log on as an administrator or with an account that has administrator credentials.
At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER.
Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to a functional state.
I hope that this helps you to sort out the problem. Toni
your computer is infected by virus, you can repair it by system restore, boot your computer to save mode by pressing f8 continously on system start up, select safe mode after it is start you will be prompt by notice on what you want to do select the option for system restore then select for a previous date for restoring.
You can try to boot it in safe mode and then restore windows 7 i have mention the steps given below
Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the Start button , click the arrow next to the Shut Down button , and then click Restart.
Do one of the following:
If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.
Log on to your computer with a user account that has administrator rights
Open System Restore by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type System Restore, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore.? If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
Start by logging on as the Administrator so you can check the Task Manager and find out what Application or Process is monopolizing the system.
If the system is still unresponsive boot into Safe Mode. (Press F8 before the Windows startup screen appears.) If everything is fine in Safe Mode type MSCONFIG at the Command Prompt and start disabling features until you find the culprit.
Last resort, buy or borrow an external USB CD/DVD drive and use it to reinstall Windows.
Important: Reinstalling will ERASE the hard drive.
Assuming that this is an NTFS drive, you can try starting in safe mode with a DOS prompt. Then use the dos utility to uncompress the target drive.
Another way that is probably more appropriate is to slave the drive into a working PC. This way you can see what is on the drive and copy it to the working PC before you have to FDISK the drive and reinstall the OS (Operating System).
Restart and keep pressing F8 key. Select safe mode option. IF it will boot into safe mode ok then go to start->all programs->Accessories->system tools->system restore. REstore computer back to previous date.
If this will not be possible.Restart and keep pressing F8 key and select safe mode with command prompt. In command prompt window type in "chkdsk /r " this will run checkdisk and restore missing files.
