Re: booting

You need to, either, turn it off at the power button when it starts to reboot so as to do a hard shut down, or if that doesn't work,  when it is booting up, press F8 continually until you enter safe mode and then select 'last Known Good configuration', press enter for a reboot and it should be ok.

I cannot boot up my Microsoft Windows 7 due to a corrupt ntfs.sys file. I can access command prompt through computer or cd. Please help!

As you are able to access command prompt, you can run the "System File Checker" tool to repair/ replace the corrupted ntfs.sys file. To do this, follow the instructions below:
1.Restart your system and tap F8 key repeatedly until you see Advanced Boot Options menu on your screen. If you miss reaching the screen in the first attempt, repeat this step until you reach the screen.
2.On the Advanced Boot Options screen, select "Safe Mode with command prompt"
3.In the command prompt window, type "SFC /scannow" (without quotes).
Note: There is a space between C and / in the command above.

This will scan all your protected system files and replace the corrupted files with a cached copy stored in your system.
Important: Please do not close the command prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. After the process is completed, the scan results will be displayed on your screen.

To know more about System File Checker, you can refer to the following Microsoft support page:

Hope this will help you.

NTLDR missing on XP desktop

NTLDR is the boot loader for windows XP. This is the part the kick starts the entire process of XP loading. It is located at C:\NTLDR One of the easier ways to fix this is Either boot in to the recover console from a Windows XP disc, or download Hiren Boot CD, burn it to a disc. Insert the CD into your Dell and reboot the computer. Note you may need to enter BIOS and enable boot to CD/DVD. Once at the Hiren menu, select Boot Mini XP. Once the Mini XP loads you can copy NTLDR loader from the mini xp to your C:\ drive. Then remove the disc and reboot the computer.

How to instal in pc

Hi, you haven't said for what operating system, but for XP. First you will need to change your primary boot device to CD Rom, to do this boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during initial boot fase, save changes after boot device has been selected, insert windows CD into drive and reboot. Select boot from CD, which appears during initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed, once finished you will need to delete operating system and repartition hard drive, then format hard drive. Once this completes PC will reboot, ignor boot from CD and allow PC to boot normally and it will start to install XP.

XP Keeps Rebooting at Startup

Most likely it is your hard drive. There is a boot sector on the hard drive and when xp starts it looks for that boot sector. If that boot sector is damaged xp can't find it so xp reboots again...and again...and... Try a different hard drive and see what happens.

You need to disable themes. This can be done by booting up in safe mode (pressing F8 on boot and selecting safe mode) Then while in safe mode go to start(then)control panel(then)administrative tools(then)services and then find "themes" right click it and select properties then you will see an option that says "startup type" click it and select disabled. It should remove all themes the next time you boot up normally

Will not boot to XP

these are some following procedure
do it carefully

XP Repair install Please read carefully and make sure you followed the warning links before initiating the Repair Install. You can print a text version for reference. repair.txt
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact. If you get files not found during the copying stage.
