It sounds like a driver is causing the problem or a new software install, turn the PC on and when you hear the beep press the F8 key, you should get a start menu, select safe mode, if this gets you in use system restore to take it back to a date it worked.

Had a power failure in my area, my dell desktop was on at time. When I turned it back on I got blue screen which I know is not good. Decided to install new/bigger harddrive since I need to install windows...


Hi, you need to change your primary boot device, try pressing the F1 key during bootup, this will take you to the BIOS screen, from here you can change your primary boot device from HD to CD, save your changes, reboot, selecting boot from CD when it appears during bootup.
Hope this helps

Screen goes to blue and has aqua lines. Then i must reboot. Just updated the drivers yesterday. the machine is running on win xp


Probably put the wrong drivers in. While the PC is booting , press F8 key to enter safe mode, and set the screen resolution to a basic 800x600 for starts, and then see if you can delete the driver. On the next bootup, the OS will then look for the driver, and you can use the original version.

Can't start Windows, Blue Screen gets in the way.


can you press the function key that takes Windows to diagnostic mode - usually F8. You have to press this key very quickly after you power on.

This might help you understand where it is failing.
Hopefully you have a recovery CD with which to boot and test the hard drive for corruption.
You will need to setup the BIOS bootup sequence to go to CD first.

I am having a problem with my compaq laptop,. when i turn it one its makes a clicking sound goes to start windows 2000 and then goes to a blue screen?


You will probably have to reinstall windows 2000. The problem is a corrupted file. Before you reinstall try rebooting pressing f8 at starting screen and then scroll to boot with last known good configuration. If this doesnt work then reinstall w2k with service pack 4 or upgrade to win xp service pack 3

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.


If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes
