Acer L100 comp wont start past the windows loading screen

I was starting my computer as normal the other day and it said that it had a disk check to do so i let it. then after it getting to the final process of the disk check i got fed up with the slow speed at which it was finishing so i just simply turned it off, and ever since when I turn it on it takes me to the "sorry windows suffered an error" screen and gives me the option of starting the comp in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good config., and starting windows normally. Now i have tried all 5 of windows so called solutions and all of them do the exact same thing, they bring me to the windows loading screen and then after it loads it reboots and starts all of this crap over again. any help will be much appreciated.

Shutdown possibly damaged the boot sector on hard drive, get service agent to ghost your files onto another disk, and repair boot sector and then put your files back

Open My Computer, and then select the local disk you want to check.
On the File menu, click Properties.
On the Tools tab, under Error-checking, click Check Now.
Under Check disk options, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box.

If I were you I would reformat your PC. In short words reformatting you Delete everything from the pc, the reinstall the OS(Operating System). Once the process is done, your PC is alot faster, and fresh. What happens to most people's PC it gets bogged down, and you go along time without cleaning it it will crash, just like a car.

There are hidden folders within the OS such as the prefetch where files are kept to help you boot problems faster, but the prefetch gets bigger each day, and isn't really needed.

To clean the prefetch you would go to Start>Run>type "prefetch" without quotes, once it opens the folder delete ALL files in it, a shortcut is to click any fil inside the prefetch, and press "ctrl+A" that will select all the files and now simply press Delete, and confirm Yes.

Something else to help maximize your system is to do a "disk clean up" access that by going to start>all programs>accessories>system tools

I hope this helped you maintain a better system in the future, if I were you I would go ahead and do the reformat then use the tips I just gave you to keep your system in shape.

Also another top make sure you keep your system clean of threats,(malware,spyware,adware,etc...) I would recommend Norton or Mcfee, I go with and, another one I like is its up to you which you choose.

Good Luck!

Acer L100 will only start in safemode when I press the F8 key, switches off if I try normal mode

Check your documentation; that may be a safeguard because there is a problem or corruption in Windows, so it auto-starts in safe mode so that you can troubleshoot. I am just guessing. Safe mode loads only the bare essential drivers to get Windows running, all peripherals are blocked because one of them is crashing Windows. I am just guessing, so check your manual that came with the computer. What you can do is a system restore to an earlier date; hopefully that will take care of it.

When i turn on the computer it goes to the windows loading screen and wont go past that, ive reset it, unplugged it , and it wont go past that screen The computer is a acer E2200 desktop and it runs on...

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode? You can do this by pressing/tapping the 'F8' key after the bios screen (Acer Screen) comes up. If it does you boot correctly then, you can try to restore the system to an earlier date using System Restore. That's located in the start menu/windows orb at All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore

I have a cpu with windows xp and it wont go past the splashscreen

Please try the following:
  • Click the start button
  • Right-click "My Computer" and select "Explore"
  • Right-click the disk (your primary hard disk, most probably should be the "C" drive) and select "Properties"
  • In the properties dialog click the tab "Tools"
  • Click "check now"
  • The "checking disk" dialog appears, check both options and click start
  • You will probably see a message that chkdsk wants exclusive access to the disk and therefore wants to begin first thing after you restart your computer. Accept by clicking ok.
  • Restart your computer
When your computer restarts you will see chkdsk advancing through several different stages of verification, examining your hard disk. If it detects no errors, Windows will continue to start to your normal desktop. If there are errors, chkdsk presents a report with what it has done and waits for your confirmation.
2. If the above doesn't solve your problem, repair the windows xp by doing as is given on the page at (please see instructions under section "Windows Installation CD - Repair Current Installation:")

Restore factory settings

what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step
