Hello,

Will it allow you to enter the safe mode? If so, and you can choose help and then restore you can back up to a date before this problem began. It sounds as if the MBR (master boot record) is contaminated.

If you made a set of restore discs when you got the computer, now is the time to use them. If you are lucky enough to have an original Windows disc, you can place that in the CD/DVD and go to the point where it asks if you want a complete install or repair an earlier on. Repair should do it, although it may still ask if you want to repair the MBR.

There are other options too, one of which is using the D: partition on your hard drive which contains restore, to restore your computer to the same state in which you bought it. However, this will lose all your data, and you will only have the programs like when it was brand new. Let me know if none of these work.

    Hi Stahama,



    Copying the XP system off another computer to a disc and using that will not work.

    However, if you have XP on another computer, you can make a boot up disc as follows:

    Put a formatted CD in your drive.

    Go to http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

    Download xpquick.exe onto the CD. Close it out and transfer it to your laptop. You may have to enter set up to change Boot from CD as your first choice. Usually you can hold down F3 when you turn the computer on to enter set up.

    This CD should give you a bare minimum set up as in safe. Choose system restore and pick a bold date before you had these problems.



    If this does not work, write me back.



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Hi again,



    Try turning it off, then booting with the CD in. If that doesn't work, hold F2 down while booting and enter set up. Go to

    Boot up priority and select CD or DVD as the first. Then exit and save changes. It should begin to boot with the CD, but if it doesn't try another cold boot. If you cant boot, or get into setu, let me know.



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    By the way, if holding down the key results in the stuck key notice, try repeatedly tapping the key with your finger.



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    A password, hmmmm? Try just hitting enter. Do you have a password you normally use to boot up with? If so, use that. Most of the time hitting enter will do it.



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    If it will allow you, continue. I'm waiting for your reply.



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Okay, now that we know tapping works, shut down, restart, and tap the F8 key until it enters safe mode. Then choose system restore, and pick a date a day or so before this started.



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Go to safe......

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    lol, choose last known good configuration.

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Yep, I said go with last known good configuration...did you get that?

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Yes, hit enter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Arggggh.....choose advanced if you haven't alread hit enter.....lol

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Ok....didn't get my reply to you quickly enough.....turn off....reboot, tapping F8, and let me go back and read what happened, BRB

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    After it says choose operating system, choose safe mode

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Did you give up???



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Okay, hit "last kown good config". When it asks you which operating system with Windows highlighted, choose safe mode....

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Did you get my last comment about safe mode?

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Press F8.....

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Yep, yep, yep.......

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Stahama,



    Try one more time, and get to where it says Directory Services Restore Mode. K?



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Well, this is a tough problem. Right now, you have two choices and the first will wipe out all your date and give you a fresh operating system. You'll have to reload any programs you have.



    !) Buying a new operating system disk. Of course that is the most expensive route.



    2) The other is going to Spotmau.com and downloading their repair disk. I own it. I have used it to boot machines with damaged MBR's, you name it.



    I'm sorry this is the best I have to offer you at the moment, but if you can wait a day or two I will network with my cohorts and see if we can ccome up with another choice.



    Sirwriter

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Hey, maybe safemode with command....

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Amanda,



    It was fun!. If you can wait a short while, I'm certain I can come up with something. I'll just reply to this thread, ok? Don't lose heart,



    Dan

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    lol. ok, baring.....

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    lol. ok, baring.....

  • Dan Todd May 13, 2009

    Sorry, Amanda....



    I really want to see you get it up and running...remeber when I suggested putting that program on the CD and trying? You said you tried while holding your finger down. If you didn't try with the CD in without touching, you might try that. Otherwise, look for me tomorrow am, ok? Take very good care Amanda, and thanks for your patience!



    Dan

  • Dan Todd May 19, 2009

    Hey there Amanda!



    Ok, let's see. Correct me if I'm wrong, but here are the following we've tried so far, correct?



    Windows Advanced Options Menu:
    Please select an option:

    Safe Mode

    Safe Mode with Command Prompt

    Last Know Good Config
    Directory Services Restore Mode

    Start Windows Normally

    Return to OS Choices Menu



    Have I missed anything?



    Dan

    If I haven't, try booting again and tapping F2 this time to get into set up....


    Comment

  • Dan Todd May 19, 2009

    Amanda,



    What we want to try is safemode with command prompt...

    Dan

  • Dan Todd May 19, 2009

    Amanda,



    That looks like a real find if it does only half of what it says it will. Please keep me updated!

Brought a advent 7113 2nd hand and it was working great but i was updating the windows programs/ however the computer stut down during and now its struck on a loop on the startup. giving options safe...


First try to boot with last know good setting if this doesn't work boot into safe mode and choose a system restore point and then retry you update again. Always be sure your laptop is plugged in when installing or doing updates, since if the battery dies in the middle of an installation or update your stuck like this.

STOP: 0x0000000024 that is the error message I am receiving and can't seem to get past the screen that gives you the option to start in safe mode


if this happens when starting to boot to Windows, try last known-good config. When system is restarting, tap F8 a couple of times to get to the Advanced Options menu where Safe Mode is also listed. Select Last Known-Good Configuration if available and press Enter. If this does not work, try selecting Safe Mode. If you can get to Safe Mode, you can try System Restore to a previous restore point available when your system is working properly. If none of the things work, try Windows repair or reinstall. Make sure to try to backup data if you can before doing any reinstall or repair.

Unable to load desktop ASUS 1005HA XP SP3


Hi

It seems you are stuck in a windows loading loop

Please do the following

1) Go into safe mode (swith the pc on and keep pressing F8 repeatedly until you have a menu presented to you, from the menu choose safe mode)

2) Once loaded click on Start>Programs>Accessories> System Tools> System restore

And restore your computer back to a point before the update was done



if it still loops when using safe mode through the method shown above then unfortunaltey you will have to reformat the PC

Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

Cant boot,get window saying restore last good known config etc


If you are asking how to re-install Windows XP, you must boot from the cd to do that. Either change your bios settings to boot from the cd first or immediately after the POST screen press F12, then choose boot from cd and when directed, press any key to boot from the cd.

If you're asking why your pc isn't booting there are many reasons it might not boot - virus, driver problems, hardware failure. Need more information if that's your question.

Zd8000 wont boot up


try to get into SAFE mode... tap F8 repeatedly when you first power on. You should get a safe mode boot menu, select last known good profile and press enter.

If this does not work reboot go into SAFE mode and select Safe Mode from menu and see if it will boot up.

You may get a pop up to use system restore, say yes, select restore to an earlier date (or similar) then use the calander to select a restore date that is PRIOR to the problem starting.

If this does not work boot to safe mode again and say NO (cancel) to use system restore and see if you can get to the desktop
