    Desktop still goes through the restart process. Tapped the F8 key to reboot in safe mode and still the same thing occurs. It is still counting down til reboot begins again. Its like a merry-go-round. It keeps telling me windows was shut down unexpectedly. Counts down to reboot, atempts the reboot then loops again to the same screen. I'm pulling my hair out trying to fix this thing!

Okay provided the USB U created is bootable insert it first then restart and press the escape button. U should then come to a boot option screen if there is a + sign next to the hard drive option. expand it and choose the USB hard drive to boot from it ur files should start to load.

We have an HP Compaq DC5100 which is just for old XP games which won't work on our swanky laptops and as a Minecraft server. A windows update came through and restarted the PC without any prompting and...

no easy way :(
1 choice -
try to do system restore from repair console

2 choice -
reinstall windows over the old one.
this will require correct drivers & reinstall of all software.To avoid loss of documents - don't format & don't use same users names as last install or put in new hard drive and make old hard drive as secondary.

both choices you need to get into the bios to change the boot order so cd boot first to get into the windows cd if it is'nt set yet

Black screen with cursor and cd stuck in computer

POSSIBLY a virus.
First of all, straighten out a paperclip and poke it gently through the small hole in the DVD drive bezel, this will release the stuck CD and you can then try and repair the installation. I suspect that if you cannot access Windows, you might need to do a full reinstall.

Before doing so, try and remove the hard drive and hook it up to a desktop as a slave drive, recover the data you want to keep.

Now, replace the hard drive, and boot to the bios, (assume you have a SATA drive)

In the Bios change the SATA drive settings from AHCI to ATA. Save and reboot with your installation CD in the drive, re-install windows...

Hp nx6110, stays in a boot-up loop

Hi, If you are sure that it's not overheating, then it could be the hard drive.
A boot up loop is an indication that the boot up sector on the hard drive is corrupt and broken. The hard drive tries to find this boot sector to boot up your computer but it can't. It keeps trying to find it again and again and again and keeps looping. Hank
