Re: Windows start problem
If you had read all the literature that microsoft sent you with Beta 7 you'd have known not to install it on a hard drive with an operating system already on it. Take the hard drive out and make it a slave drive and get some friend to put it in his system and save all your files to his hard drive, format it and re-install Windows.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This will have been very likely caused by a recent Windows software update (but it can also be indicative of a hard disk problem). It would help if you indicated which version of windows you are running.
1. Starting Your Computer in SAFE MODE.
If you know how to get to a "safe mode " selection page then go there, select safe mode and start the computer in safe mode. Then once in safe model run a windows "system restore". Don't select the most recent restore point but one that goes back 4 or 5 days prior top when the no start issue occurred.
Then run system restore in safe mode and when finished the computer will restart. Leave it alone for a while and you should get normal windows loading and a message eventually that the system restore has been completed. You may notice at that stage that it is still actively loading software so wait until it has finished and is idle. Then check that you can open your programs normally. If you cannot, and find nothing will open, go back to system restore and select a different restore date than the one you just used and rerun the system restore. You may need to go back to safe mode to do this.
2. Once fixed, and to prevent this problem recurring, go to the windows update page and change the parameters from automatically downloading and updating your system to the requirement for the updates to be downloaded but they cannot be installed without you specifically allowing the install. If you do not do this the system update that caused the problem in the first place will be automatically downloaded and installed again and you will end up with the same problem or worse.
Be very selective with the windows updates you allow to be installed in future since you have had this problem and I would suggest you only allow an update that is nominated as essential but first check exactly what it is as you may not really need it.
Microsoft has been and still is causing many thousands people to have problems with their computers loading windows as a result of some of their software updates and clearly the software people do not know what the implications are for the types of software updates/system amendments they do that cover many different types of computers. They could not even get Windows 10 right when it was released and had to make some significant changes after release due to many problems that arose with W 10.
Hope this helps with whatever version of Windows you are running. If not let me know. If you can get your computer running in safe mode it is a good sign and you can usually recover from there by using the tools available.
Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.Click the Start button , click the arrow next to the Shut Down button , and then click Restart.
Do one of the following:
If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to start tapping F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.
Restoring Windows XP operating system can be performed in DOS mode if XP's system restore tool cannot be accessed because of booting issues or when the XP recovery CDs are unavailable. There are two steps to this procedure: first, the XP system restore tool must be accessed using the DOS menu and second, the actual XP system restore is performed.
Start the computer and press the F8 key when the manufacturer's logo appears but before the Windows XP logo appears. Scroll through the menu options using the down arrow key. Select "Safe mode with a Command prompt" and hit the Enter key. Type in the administrator ID and password. Hit "Enter." Type in this code in the command prompt box to access the XP system restore tool: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe. Hit "Enter." The XP system restore tool will open. b> How to Restore Windows XP b> Click "Restore my Computer to an Earlier Time" when the XP system restore tool starts. Click "Next." Choose a restore point before your operating system began to malfunction. Click "Next" and "OK." Click "Next" to begin the XP restoration process. Do not turn off the computer or attempt to stop the system restore tool, as this may damage the hard drive. The system restore tool will automatically restart the computer when it has finished restoring the operating system. Hope this helps.
Basically some causes of blue screen is the RAM check the RAM remove first maybe it is clogged by the dust. Remove the dust of the memory stick and insert it back to you computer. Usually of you have this problem again you need a recovery disk. Load a windows CD to your CD drive you need to boot and repair the windows.
Try booting the thing in Safe Mode. Upon startup (after the Acer logo goes) press F8 several times. You will be offered a menu select Safe Mode (at the very top of the list). If the system reaches the desktop, you can repair your Windows. For the three fixes below you will need to go Start Menu>Run... 1) Write: fixmbr, and press ENTER. 2) Write: fixboot, and press ENTER. 3) Write: chkdsk, and press ENTER. (The later will take several minutes, but you can read what stage it is doing).
Sounds like it might be a hard drive problem. First, you may want to try a reinstall of the operating system (booting just from the CD), or also attempt a diagnostic (F12 at Dell Logo). If the first does not work, or if the drive fails diagnostics, you will need to replace it
I presume that your logo screen reads 'windows xp'. If so, there might be a problem with one of your startup drivers. Try to boot the computer in safe mode and uninstall any recently installed hardware or software and try to boot it up. It may be a virus also. So update your antivirus and run a complete scan. To boot in safe mode, hold F8 key when you're switching on your computer. you should see a screen which would give you the boot up options. Select "Safe mode with networking". This option lets you browse the internet from safe mode in case you need to.
