Before booting XP , Press F8 and go to safe mode. then try to uninstall the latest drivers you have installed. or the latest system modification you've done. If it didn't work. try system recovery.

GoodLuck

My computor wont shut off like it should?


Wthout some more info it's hard to say, but if, when you turn it of, you see the phrases "Preparing to hibernate" or "going to sleep" or basically anything other than "Shutting down" then the correct option to shutdown needs to be selected. On windows XP, click the start logo, select "shutdown" then select "Turn off computer". if you are using Vista, in the start menu, click the arrow next to the power icon then click "Shutdown" with windows 7 just click "shutdown" in the start menu.
If you are trying to turn off your machine using the power button on the machine or on the keyboard, the machine will hybernate by default. To change this, go to "control panel" select power options and edit the current power plan. Look for the setting "change what the power buttons do" or something like that! change it to "turn the computer off"
Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire One loops on start up screen. All it does is show the acer logo, then shows the ''windows was shut down improperly'' screen with all those options and then goes to the windows xp start up...


Try tapping F8 when the acer window shows, when it shows the muliboot option, scroll down to "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter. If it does not boot normally, you will have to get an external dvd drive and boot off the drive with a windows installation disc to perform a repair.

Hi,
You should be able to restore the system from the recovery partition on that model laptop.
Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application (PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.


Regards.

Wont load passed windows xp screen


Try holding down the "F-8" key when the emachines logo appears, see if you get a prompt for "safe mode". If you can get the system up and running in safe mode, shut it back down from the start menu. That should rewrite the boot sector and may clear the problem.

Whenever my computer starts up and shows the Windows XP logo it shuts down and shows me while starting up that windows wasn't started up rite. Than after a week it COMPLETELY messes up. I've tried a FULL...


It is one of 2 things....

1. It is overheating. Overheating will cause the computer to randomly shut down. You can usually decifer if it is overheating by trying to put the computer back on after it shuts down. For example , start it up...let it shut down...then try to put it back on again...if it doesn't come on at all, or if it shuts down even quicker then the previous time, you are most likely looking at an overheating issue. To remedy that you want to open up the case, clean out all of the dust with a compressed air can (be very careful not to tip the can, it will spray liquid), and verify that all of the system fans are running.

2. Could be any type of hardware failure - from the power supply to the hard drive. If you have completly ruled out the overheating issue, I would just take it to a shop to get diagnosed.

You should try starting in safe mode. Shut down the computer completely - switch of - wait a minute and then switch on...

To get into the Windows XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the Windows Advanced Options Menu . Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Once you are in safe mode you shold be able to investigate the problem.

Let me know how you get on.
