    Thanks for your help. But I think vista is broken or damaged because my sister just told me that when installing updates she clicked restart or cancel and then she shut it down, which I think messed up the whole system and now I have to restore it somehow. I'm trying to download a ISO image(using home PC)to a CD or a USB but I'm having a difficult time.
    Thanks tho.

That is the screen of death seems to be a problem with acers got one that has done the same and know of others,if it is over 3 years old you could try and fit a new drive or just dump it or sell it for spares.
If under 2 years old under euro law electronic equpment is covered for 2 years as it deemed it should last for that length of time without failing

My computer screen turns blue and restarts window vista


Hi jjlishus,

I see you mentioned that you are having issues with you computer going into a blue screen then it restarts.

You can try to boot into safe mode to see if Windows Vista will Load without having the bluescreen and if it will not shut down or restart, from Safe Mode, try and do a system restore to a data where the problem has not happened yet.

From there-on see if the issue will still happen or no

Getting into Safemode:
restart PC keep on tapping F8 on your Keyboard this will prompt you options, Look for Safemode then press enter this should bring up the safemode screen.

If during the loading of safemode and still happens are any error show up or it goes to a blue screen, you can try going into safemode with command prompt.
to get to safemode in command prompt just do the same as ging into safemode and select safemode in command prompt.

once in the command prompt
Type CHKDSK , then press enter it should check the system for 5 mins or so depending on your PC/Laptops speed.

if still the issue is the same reformatting or restoring your windows back to defaults may fix the issue.

I hope that this will help,

    Don,t do that insatead:
    Entering the BIOS Setup menu Entering the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful:

    Hi, I'm having Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and using operating system is Windows XP. From past one week it is restarting itself. While loading windows blue screen is coming and in fraction of seconds it is...


    Hi. All Dell Notebooks has this Image Restore in one of the partitions of the hard drive.

    You may restore factory settings of your computer but your files will be lost.

    Try to boot using safemode with networking first so you can save your files online.

    Turn your computer on and on the Dell logo, press Ctrl+F11 if system came with pre-loaded XP then follow the intructions.

    If system came with windows Vista, on Dell logo, press F8 and select Repair your computer and press Enter. Click Next and/or enter your password if asked. If not, follow the intructions until your system goes back to factory image.

    Hope it helps!

    When you first start your computer how do get it to read the disc first?


    You go into Boot Menu, and set the - first boot device to CDROM.
    The computer will then read what is in the optical drive, first.

    Computer off, press the Power On button. Watch closely for the blue dell logo.
    Looking at the bottom of the monitor screen when the blue Dell logo comes up, you will see - F2 = Setup.
    At the top right of the screen you will see F12 = Boot Menu.

    This screen goes by F-A-S-T!
    As SOON as you see the blue Dell logo press the F12 key.

    If you miss this small window of opportunity, just wait for Windows to fully load, then click on Start, Turn Off Computer, and Restart.

    If Windows is not loading, then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME. (Not shouting)
    This will restart your computer so you can try again.

    Upon entering Boot Menu you cannot use your mouse anymore, you have to use the keyboard.

    The Boot Device Menu has the devices listed, and each device has a number next to it.

    At the bottom of the menu, type the number that is next to CDROM, then press the Enter key.

    This is Dell Support, and the main page for the Dell Dimension 4700 Service Manual,

    Left-click on - Entering System Setup
