Hp slimline s3000 goes immediately into sleep mode

Try booting into Safe Mode then go into the Control Panel and change the Power Options.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.Once safe mode is up click Start/Control Panel and look for Power Options.

Emachines T6524 won't reboot after automatic update. I get the windows screen when I turn it on, and everything seems fine, then the screen goes black and I get the no signal message.

You should try to boot in safe mode without the card removed..If this got on after an update it is possible (almost sure) it messed up with your graphic card driver and now it needs to be reinstalled > To do so ..try to boot in safe mode...To do that press the key indicated on screen for boot menu and choose safe mode ...usually it is f8 key or f12 ..depend on the model .If it seams not to be able to find the safe mode boot ..try to stop the computer by unplugging it ..This will force it to stop improper way ..and will show the screen for safe mode and other ways to boot-up .select the first safe mode ..and let it start ..This mode will not load any drivers and work just with the minimum needed for to start .Go to control panel ...remove programs ..and remove the graphic card driver from the list ..after that if you have the disk insert it and run the driver again in original ..If you do not have it look for it on the manufacturer's site ..and download it ..
If you need help with the driver ..let me know exact model of the computer ..and if it is not an on board card I need to know the exact model of the video card ..

Runnung windows XP SP2 - 2 or 3 minutes after booting up my computer goes to the ''blue screen of death'' and displays the following error code. stop: 0x000000F4 (0x0000003, 0x85D1F7B8, 0x85D1F92C,...

Unplug all the components plugged to the computer after 2-5 mins you can plug them back and then try to press F8 on start up, select Last known good configuration, and turn press enter. If it works fine, if not then turn off again and then press F8 on startup go to safe mode and then try to do system restore. ( start - all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore ) select a date before the day when the problem started. It will not effect yous saved files, and will help you to fix your problem.

Computer keeps returning to "safe mode" options screen

If you choose Start Normal and it boots into safe mode again then you should get professional help if you value any of the files on your computer and don't want to loose any data.

I'm not sure when it started, because my 17 year old son was the last person to use the computer. I have a 4-year old Dell PC and have been running Norton Go Back just about the whole time. Since late...

my advice is to uninstal Go back as sometimes it stops the boot process, but you may have a faulty drive, so first try starting in safe mode (Pressing F8 on boot up), select safe mode and if it boots into windows you know it's not a hardware problem, but a software one.

Start up

try starting the computer normally, this usually happens if you computers power was cut while booting up, its just a small harmless glitch.  As for the returning back to the prompt try running it with command prompt. when you get to the command prompt, type (chkdsk) and let it run this might also fix any other problems that you are not seeing.
