Could it be the Boot (Sector) Virus? I was having the same problem, and a co-worker was able to remove the Boot Virus.

Sounds like it's either bad memory or else a heat issue.

Your windows might be corrupt. If you have a windows xp cd, boot to it.
Press R for Recovery Console. It will take you to a command prompt screen. Press 1 to select the C: drive. It will ask for Administrator password. If there is any, enter it. If there is none, just press enter.
Next type in "chkdsk c: /r" and then press enter. Leave it to run through the processes and when it completes, type EXIT and press enter.
Now boot to hard drive and see if it will boot up. If it still doesn't boot, get back to me!

Thanks and good luck,

How to go to Bios in Ideapad Z500

Usually one of the F keys will get you into the bios. Try F8, F10 or F12. Reboot the computer soon as it starts booting up keep tapping on the F8 key if its the right one the bios screen will appear, if its not it will just boot up in windows. Shut it down and try it again using the F10 key, etc, until you get the bios screen to come up.

bluescreen? try this one turn off your laptop for sometime, and open it and remove the new applications you install. you can repair the problem by repairing you o.s. but it will not take long the Bluescreen will return soon.

solution: back up your data make a clean format. but right after installing o.s. immediately install anti virus.

What does it mean if my hp dv6700 won't boot up and only shows a black screen the a black screen with white lines going down it after about 30 secs.

This means that your windows operation system is failing. as soon as the computer is rebooted, please try the key F12 on your keyboard (sometimes it's F8 or these keys with the ctrl). See if you have a menu and then press load through Safe Mode. If the windows still won't load, then your windows needs a reboot. If it loads with the Safe Mode, please send me a reply through this post, so that I can further guide you.

Compaq c310 laptop to be booted


To boot from the disc, you need to restart your computer. As soon you see the HP logo screen keep on tapping F12. You should select the option CD/DVD drive or CD drive. Make it sure that your XP cd is inserted.

Please be reminded that if you will reinstall your windows XP everything will be wiped out from your computer, your documents, picture and any other documents.

Keep me posted.
