Well then... I would start it in safe mode and do system restore, unless you want to continuously operate in safe mode...

SOURCE: safe mode

Hi there, Try tapping F8 on boot to access the boot menu select "start windows normal". if it will not let you boot in to safemode with cmd promt and run "chkdsk /f" to check for bad sectors and repair othere HD issues. Also try "Last known Configuration" as a last ditch effort before moving on to System restore. IF system restore options fail to work let me know and we can do a system restore and restore your system to an earlier time through the cmd prompt. Good luck and i hope this helps

SOURCE: acer aspire one stuck on windows safe mode restart

If you have the option of going to a command prompt (on the choose how to start "text" screen), do it, and type at the C:> fdisk /mbr then press the ENTER key. This may fix things. Also, try removing the battery when the computer is off, wait about a minute, then replace it and start computer. This actually helps sometimes.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5315-2713 Windows XP Boot fails, Safe

If the BIOS does not detect the hard drive, the computer won't boot up because the Windows operating system is on the hard disk.
Try re-seating the hard drive to make sure it makes proper connection, when you boot up again and the hard drive is not detected then most likely the hard drive has failed.
To get the Acer operating again, replace the hard drive, install Windows and the Acer device drivers plus your programs.

You can download the drivers from the Acer WEB site using a different computer and then install them on your notebook. Make sure you select the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

I have a Toshiba satellite L755-s5153 when I turn it on it says "windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. to fix the problem:" but I don't have the original disk...


Starting Windows 7 in Safe Mode is an excellent next step when starting Windows normally is not possible. Safe Mode only starts the most important Windows 7 processes so, depending on the problem you're having, you might be able to troubleshoot or even fix the problem from here.
To begin entering Windows 7 Safe Mode, turn on or restart your PC.
Just before the Windows 7 splash screen shown above appears, press the F8 key to enterAdvanced Boot Options.

Next you can restore your system from a previous known working date from your restore function. If you are using Windows 7 you may follow these step to restore.

1. Start
2. Go to "All Programs"
3. Select "Accessories"
4. Select "System Tools"
5. Select "System Restore"

Do hope this helps.

Have a Dell inspiron 1525 after adding google and some extensions laptop shut down after the restart almost all of my Windows Services wont work or my firewall says it is off but wont let you turn on


Sounds like something got hosed up. i would recommend doing system restore to previous date when this was working fine. you will have to reload software that was installed after the restore date but this should not be hard. Click on start, all programs(programs for vista and windows 7) choose accessories, system tools and restore. chose restore computer to earlier date and proceed. If you cant do it in regular mode reboot pc and on reboot keep on tapping key F8 to go to safe mode and do same steps to do restore. Hope this helps.

Pc keeps loading and restarting again, it wont go past windows xp


I keep coming back to this, thinking about it, leaving and coming back to this. I have seen this before and the only thing that I could do to fix the issue was to do a Windows Repair using the original CD. The problem with this is it looks a little deciving and could be complicated. Put the CD in, accept the ULA and when it gives you the option to repair, hit R. Go through the prompts a little further. It will look like it is reinstalling Windows completely, but it is actually reloading just the system files that usually become curupt. When the system comes back up, it might look a little different, but all of your programs and files will still be there.
