First unplug your machine and plug it back in and turn it on while its booting up you should see a message to press the F2 key to enter the BIOS. press that key, you will only have a couple of seconds to press it. Look for an option called First Boot Device, Boot Sequence, or something similar; press the arrow keys on your keyboard to select this field and then press Enter (You may have to select Advanced Options or another submenu to find it.) In the resulting screen, select CDROM/DVD and then press the Esc key until you return to the main BIOS screen. Follow the onscreen instructions to save your new settings and exit BIOS setup. Insert the installation disc (you need an installation disc of the operating system, if you dont have one you can find one on amazon, but if you needed to buy one you should consider upgrading to windows 7(more like vista) or Windows 8 (not really like vista)) once the disc is inserted restart the computer and follow the on-screen instructions

SOURCE: windows xp stuck in restart loop

Needle in the tower? Wow! Who told you that? Geek Squad.

OK in all seriousness this is what I want you to do.

Press F8 as the computer boots up.

Choose "Safe Mode with Command Prompt"

Let me know if you're able to get that far and then we'll proceed from there.

SOURCE: HP dv8000 w/vista keeps restarting and the monitor is blackl

Try to boot into vista's safe mode, this can usually be done by pressing F8 after POST, but before you see the vista loading screen.

Once in safe mode go to:

Start > Control Panel > System

on the left you will see " Advanced System Settings " Click that

a new window will pop up with your system properties, click the " settings " button near " startup and recovery "

Make sure the little check-mark near " restart automaticly " is NOT check, then apply, and OK out of all screeens and reboot the system. If the problem persist, you may need to insert the Vista disk into your system, and do a recovery, or restore.

CANNOT GET PAST BLUE SCREEN


Have you tried to cold start the machine, remove all media, CDs, DVDs, USBs, etc., unplug, remove battery, plug in , Try to boot normally. If that fails, unplug, plug in, reboot and try your F key to Boot menu or system restore/recovery. Does the HDD spin-up? Led blink? DVD/CD rom drive led blink? Do you have a repair disk? Does your laptop have a few miles on it? Could be a bad HDD? Remove and test, replace if necessary. Try to reseat the HDD and the memory mods First.

HI our Indesit IDE 750 dishwasher gets stuck on the first cycle and the timer doesn't count down. Switching it off and restarting drains the water, but it gets stuck at the same point in the cycle


This sounds like a heating element issue, If the water doesn't get warm it just keeps trying to heat but won't advance past this point until it has reached a set temperature. You dishwasher may or may not be fitted with a thermal overload that may have tripped, Unplug the dishwasher, Remove the lower kick panel and look for a small circular metal sensor with 2 or 3 wires on it attached to the basepan of the dishwasher, Check to see if it has a red button in the middle and if it's there push it then re-assemble and try again, otherwise it's a visit from the serviceman unfortunately.

I can not get past the blue screen unmountable_ boot_ volume even in safe mode.


You Dell Latitude cannot detect the hard disk.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

My computer was a blue screen, what is the solution?


Blue screen or blue screen of death (BSOD) is common with windows family of operating system and it happens to stop any damage to your system when OS fails. If it happened once, nothing to worry about but if its happening again and again, you need to check for any recently installed hardware or software, it maybe incompatible. If this is not the case then maybe you need an upgrade.

Hi there, about two/three weeks ago I was on my laptop and noticed that it required a reboot. I rebooted the laptop and it came back to a black screen with blinking LED codes. I looked it up and the code...


Well the computer seem to have been working before the reboot, before buying anything try to clean out all the dust particles from the heat sinker of the CPU, take off the CPU and take off all the old thermal paste with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol. Apply new thermal paste *Very Important* if you run the computer without thermal paste you could burn out your CPU and or cause motherboard damage. Put computer back together, reset the BIOS, and restart. Hope this helps, Best of luck.

Make sure that the input on your monitor is on the correct selection.
Is this a dual monitor setup? If so unplug one of the monitors and restart the Mac.

My laptop that has window xp just keep on rebooting and it just stuck on safe mode and dosnt want to go anywhere but reboot every time


It sounds like you have automatically reboot on error turned on which is Windows defualt. (dumb idea Microsoft). When you get the black and white screen that gives you several options to start your computer, one will be to turn off automatic restart.

Your computer will boot and you will get an blue error screen. That error will help you determine what is broken.

An alternative is to try last known good configuration, but I've never had much luck with that option.

My F11 key wont work it wont go to recover system. I been having problems with my ip address


To use PC Restore:

1. Turn on the Computer. During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>. If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the Computer finish restarting, and then restart the Computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.

3. On the next screen that appears, click Restore.

4. On the next screen, click Confirm. The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.

5. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the Computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the Computer. Click Finish and let the Computer completely reboot.

6. When prompted, click Yes.

The Computer restarts. Because the Computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the Computer was turned on.

7. Click Next. The System Restore screen appears and the Computer restarts.

8. After the Computer restarts, click OK.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rebooting the device usually helps with this.
Any time it's 'stuck', you can do a soft reset (reboot) by holding the power/hold button up in the 'on' position while pressing the center-round button for a few seconds.
If it defaults to off, it should restart normally by using the power-on switch.
