System recovery windows xp tablet edition

So i guess my laptop crashed.. i dont know how or why.. I cant run on safe mode, it says that windows xp cannot run in safe mode. i never made any back up disks and the only cd-rom i have is the gateway system recovery cd. which has been a pain in the... anyhow the only thing i CAN do is format the whole thing, which has been okay up until i got to the part where it asks for my windows product code. i have the code.. but i cant type it in on the laptop keyboard or on the digital keypad ( the one on the screen for the stylus) sooooo i cant get any further on it. the caps lock, shift, control ect work but it wont let me type in the code. i cant even press the back or next keys... i miss my laptop..:( can anyone help?

If your laptop contains a free USB port, you can try using a USB keyboard instead of the one on yor laptop. Another way to get around the problem is to use the ASCII codes instead of typing. Press and hold down the "Alt" key and type "65" in your numeric keypad, this will bring up the letter "A", now release "Alt". Again press and hold down "Alt" key and type the "66" for "B" and so on.... But the second method works only if your numeric keypad is functional. all the best Deepu

Go to Start->All Programs-> Accessories -> Accesibility -> On-screen keyboard You can use this with the help of mouse. It works same as keyboard until you get laptop repaired.

Cant activate windows xp home edition


Hi

Try and see what the BSOD says , when it suddenly reboots. Press F8 until it gives you a menu , go to advanced options or something similar highlight don't reboot or restart automatically.

Can you start your PC in safe mode. Try a crack although I wouldn't recommend it.

Only stats in safe mode if i start normal get to the windows xp splash page then it crashes


Start up in safe mode. Pull all files off that you do not want to lose. If you have your recovery disk, start up in safe mode and use the recovery disk to bring your operating system back up and running.

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c


Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.

??Windows won't start on Acer Laprtop Travelmat 290 running WIndows XP (1 & 2) It keeps saying start windows in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good...


give the "last known good configuration" a go if you have not already ,or the safe mode ,
if that is no good
when the pc try's to boot up it should show a key ,such as (F11) that needs to be hit to enter the recovery stage ,what ever it is do it and follow the prompts,this should recover the laptop to its delivered state ,when it finishes you can restore your backups.
however if the drive does not have a recovery partition you will not be able to do it.
So:

it may be that the hard drive is ok but the operating system files have been corrupted in some way,

as you have no windows disc you will need to obtain one to either recover the operating system or re install windows, and you may have to go to the Acer website afterwards for some drivers when you have finished.

good luck
