SOURCE: Black screen comes up "windows

You should opt Safe Mode:

  • On the black screen just navigate throug up and down arrow keys.
  • Goto Safe Mode and press enter.
  • It will boot your system in safe mode.
If the boot is success full:
  • try to remember any software or hardware you recently installed/change. Then remove/uninstall that software/hardware. Also remove some device driver like Video/Audio driver and make re-start. and try to normal boot. If success then install your audio/video.
If no success then I think its time to re-install your windows.
Please post your feed-back.

SOURCE: Computer will not start past safe mode screen

In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions

spywaregard 2008 is malware, a parasite if you will

the last 1/2 of this article will run down a list of files you need to delte to get rid of this nasty little bugger. You can also download various tools to remove it, but it is dependent on your comfort level. if you are comfortable searching for files and changing a couple of registry keys, then by all means, manually is the way to go. If not, you will not have a hard time finding a tool to get rid of this

Try to completely turn off the computer by pressing and holding the power button for at least 4 seconds. Disconnect it from the mains, wait for a few minutes and the connect and try to power on. If this alone helps, you might be right that it is not properly being awaken from sleep mode. If so, check your settings in Windows and perhaps look for the newest drivers here. See to it that you have the latest Windows updates as well. If you are using Vista, this is a common problem prior to Service Pack 1, so you would want to download and install SP1, if this is the case.

If you don't succeed with the first solution, you might have a more severe problem.
Depending of the configuration of your machine, you might have an internal graphic solution or as an add-on card. Connect the monitor to the appropriate connector on your computer. Make sure that you only use EITHER the digital OR the analog cable, and not both at the same time.

Good luck, and let me know if the above is helpful or not so that I might research some more.

Toshiba stuck on start-up screen.

The windows files have been corrupted, I was hoping you might get into safe mode to try a system restore but your system will not allow it. If you can find your recovery disc a clean install is the best way to go. Try contact customer support about a replacement recovery disc.

2 nights ago i had a windows update show up for when i was closing my computer so i let it run and the next morning my motherboard is giving me issues now, everything on the computer works fine now except...

It sound like windows did an update taht had something to do with your motherboard. You can view your updates by going to your "control panel" and selecting your Windows Update (icon). Right click on it and open. Click on "view update history" at the upper left part of the window, then see if any of the listed updates involved your motherbaord. If so, click on "installed updates troubleshoot..." at the top of your screen. This will show all recent updates. You can click on and uninstall the update you think is causing the problem. You can always get it back by running check for updates and reinstalling. Another option would be to do a "system restore" back to before the problem exixted.
Shut down your system normally and restart by pressing powre button on your tower. A screen will come up where you can arrow up to "start in safe mode". Once your screen has come up, it will take a couple minutes, A window will pop up about safe mode. Scroll down in window to "what is safe mode" and click on it. Another window will pop up with, scroll down to it, "start safe mode". Click on that. This will take a couple minutes. Another window will pop up about the system restore where it will ask you to start safe mode with their recommended time. There will be an option box "next". Click on that and a window will come up whrere you should be able to scroll to your update. Click on that and it will restoe to that time. You will lose any other updates done prior to that so when finished, run check updates again but, don't allow the one taht created your problem.

Blue screen states updating windows on #9 out of 10 wont move just stuck there

You can try to force a shutdown, then reboot the machine and go into safe mode. If it boots in safe mode, let it stabilize for a few then reboot normally, If it acts up on you, try to run system restore and back the computer up a few days before the updates occured.

Starting up loop that never ends.

Try booting in safe mode (F8 just before the Windows screen) and do a virus check.

This morning i got a update for windows.. well!! i updated it and then a error screen came on.. i tried to reboot the note book but its stuck in windows boot manager screen.. my lap top wont shut down.....

Boot into safe mode then go to system restore and restore it to before the update or go to control panel and uninstall the update.

To boot into safe mode:
Right after bios loads up and before windows starts loading start hitting the F8 key
Choose safe mode with or without networking doesn't matter

Laptop stuck on screen "Windows is resuming"

First determine if windows is really hung.

Restart the laptop and keep pressing the F8 function key. You will get a menu. Try the safe mode option by selecting it with arrow keys and pressing enter. Click on Yes when it asks the question.

If Windows runs okay in safe mode, reboot and try starting normally without pressing any keys). If again it won't start, then go back to safe mode and when asked the Yes/No question, reply with a No and it will ask you to do a system restore. Just select a recent restore point say one or 2 days ago or the most recent and select restore. It will take some time and reboot the system. Now everything should be hopefully okay.
