Windows wont boot up

PC was given to me with complaint of no boot. Sure enough, turn it on and it goes to promt for safe mode, start normally, etc. The problem is no matter what you choose, it then freezes. I removed HDD, placed in alternate computer & reformatted & loaded XP-SP2 fresh then re-installed into the original pc. Still have same problem. I then tried booting from the CD dirve w/XP-SP2 CD, after it gives the 2nd msg of if you want automated recovery (which I do NOT choose) it just freezes. HELP !!! Thanx

Re: Windows wont boot up

Base on my experience, there must be a problem with the other components of that pc. one by one try to replace the video card, then memory, and also the cd or dvd rom drive, isolate it one by one by doing so, you can pin point what causes the problem.

The computer starts but nothing appears on the screen with the processor's fan turning normally and the keyboard does not indicate(leds). it goes off normally when it is switched off

Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 repeatedly until the boot screen comes up. Select "Safe Mode with Networking" or "Safe Mode". Use device manager to see if you are missing any drivers. You probably are so install them and reboot.

I turn on my hp pavilion zd7020us the hp page boots up then goes to safe mode or normal mode page then goes to a very quick blue screen and turns off and starts the whole process over again any ideas

So many computer face this blue screen fetal errors on windows.

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.

Cd player not recognizedinsafemode but there it sits in devicemgr

I think the vnetbios.vxd error is because the PC once seen a network connection (LAN) which is no longer present. The only way I ever cleared this was to put the LAN card back (Once seen - NEVER forgotten - It seems). This however is not causing your CD problem! Try this and get back: -
  1. With PC off disconnect the CD from IDE.
  2. Re-boot and interrupt start up to go to BIOS settings.
  3. Ensure that your hard drive is the ONLY IDE device present and that it first device on first IDE and MASTER.
  4. Re-boot and allow 98se to start normally.
  5. Go to "Device Manager".
  6. If there is still a CD device present - delete it. If not - continue.
  7. Shut down the PC.
  8. Re-connect the CD and re-boot.
  9. Interrupt again and go to BIOS settings.
  10. Ensure that you have Hard drive as First device (Master on first IDE) and CD drive as second (Slave on first IDE).
  11. Re-boot and allow 98se to start normally.
  12. Try the devices now in "Explorer".
Best of luck! Ian.

Try booting into safe mode. If it's a driver problem, safe mode will allow you to start Windows with only the bare minimum of hardware and drivers being engaged. To get to safe mode, press the F8 button on your keyboard during the Windows boot process until it takes you to a screen to let you select Normal, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, etc. I would suggest not using anything other than just Safe Mode. From there, uninstall any software or new drivers that you recently installed. Alternatively, you can use the System Restore feature to rollback to a previous restore point.

Try runing the machine into safe mode.

Turn your computer off.

Wait 30 seconds.

Just before the Windows screen appears, press f8.

Select safe mode.

One the desktop is loaded up, restart the computer the normal way.

See if that fixes the problem.
