If you have your original operating system dvd/disc to hand then put this in the DVD drive, then turn off the PC, turn it back on, see if the DVD boots up, if not, restart and when the pc starts up next time press DEL or Backspace when you turn it back on when you see white dots and bottom of screen with black background, this should get you into the boot menu (if it's not DEL) it maybe F8, F10, or F12 sorry im not sure for your computer but should be one of these(some computers even use F1-F2, your looking for the boot menu. You then need to select the DVD drive to be first in order to boot, save then it will boot up from the disc and attempt a system repair and check your system files are all ok, this may take some time so u leave the PC while it's doing this, if successful it will autmatically boot back up or hopefully give you a error message to tell you whats up.

SOURCE: boot up with no operating system

When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.

If the bios does not recognize tthe hard drive, replace hard drive.

SOURCE: acer aspire 5050 will not boot up, says no

Sadly, you can't just download a system restore disk.
Some computers these days have a secret system restore partition, I read that you need to press ALT+F10 to access it, but I can't confirm if that is correct. Try pressing that combination just before you usually get the message.
If the laptop is still under warranty, you probably want to contact Acer.
I decided to check the Acer website (http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/webpage.cfm?siteid=7293&areaid=7&website=AcerPanAm.com/us) and it appears you can buy a new recovery CD, so I guess there may not be a free solution..

you could try going to the boot menu, and choosing 'last known good', but that is probably not going to work.

you should be able to run a repair off the CD....

the file is a kernel, a neccessary file used by Windows. It may have gotten corrupted or deleted.. possibly by a virus or bad hard drive sector.

get a disc, and run repair, if that doesn't fix it, you may need to re-install a fresh copy of windows, which will over-write all your data. you may be able to boot to that upgrade CD and that may have a repair option...

good luck.

My vaio turns on but wont boot up model is a vgnnr17g


Hello,

Try booting it up to safe mode. Just keep tapping F8 to go to the options where you can select safe mode. After that, use your keyboard to select safe mode. If it goes to safe mode, restore it to a date when your computer was still working fine.

To do the system restore, do the following:

Start or pearl button (click) > Accessories > system tools > system restore .

If you can't boot via F8, then use the Operating System's Disc that came with your computer when you bought it. Turn on your computer with the disc inside it. Follow the onscreen instructions and do a repair in the operating system.

I hope this helps.

My computer is unable to boot in any of the options, what do i do?


Booting problems with your laptop occur when the computer gets infected by a virus or when there are underlying hardware problems.You can use several troubleshooting techniques before taking the laptop to a service center for repair.

1. Turn on the laptop without pressing the power button too long, to prevent it from turning on and then turning off. Also make sure that the laptop has enough battery power to boot up.

2. Unplug any external drives connected to the computer. These include flash drives, external hard drives or any CD or DVD in the optical drive. Listen closely as you boot the computer. If the laptop is emitting ticking sounds and refuses to boot up at all, the hard drive or another internal component may be damaged. Consider bringing your laptop to a service center.

3. Turn on your computer and boot to "Safe Mode" or "Last known good configuration" if the computer powers on but displays an error before it boots the operating system. If this is the case, the laptop may be infected with a virus.

4. Use the "System Restore" feature in Windows to restore the operating system to an earlier time. Note, however, that this will not work for those whose computers have the "System Restore" feature disabled. Click "Start," "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools," and then "System Restore." When the dialog box appears, click on the box for "Restore my computer to an earlier time," and then "Next." Select the restore point that you want and follow further instructions.

5. Resolve a "blue screen" problem. This error screen appears before booting, and is caused by several factors such as virus infection or hardware failure. Read the error message to determine what factor caused the problem. The error message should include troubleshooting tips.

6. Consider repairing the operating system if the computer does not boot at all. This procedure will repair the operating system without erasing your data and settings. Access the Resource list for instructions on how to repair Windows.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

I was just on my ibm t43 and it froze so i manually turned it off now it wont turn back on. it acts like it is going to then it pops up a screen that say an problem has been detected


Hello, Meagan.

Sounds like an operating system problem.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If you can't access System Restore by Safe Mode, try Offline System Restore:
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

Sony vgn-fz430e won't boot. Power and battery led turn on, hdd flashes, then nothing


The operating system is probably corrupted. If there is a file system and the OSID file is intact, it will try to boot up, but fail and end up not doing anything at all.
Hopefully you have a backup of your files:
You should reinstall the operating system. If the computer came with a restore disk (which it probably did), locate that and boot your computer from it. If it didn't, try booting up with system restore. I don't know how to do that on your computer because it varies from computer to computer.
