Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

ASUS mod x200a will not boot to windows, goes to automatic repair option and freezes there. f8 and f12 same result. I tapped f9 which produced a please wait screen then froze.

I got the Aptios Utility setup via "delete' button. Otherwise it just goes to auto repair and freezes there no matter which "f" button it chosen.

System won't boot up window XP


HI Joe. It's likely you have a virus. Or could be just a corrupted section of the hard drive. The F8 is what gets you to the black screen with the differnt boot options. F2 or Del button gets you in the the BIOS or start up instrutions for the PC. F 12 will get you boot device options. The F12 or F2 needs to be pressed before it ever gets to try starting windows. So when you first power on, immediately start tapping the F12 about once a second. This should bring up a menu of which items/ device, to start from. [If you get a stuck key message just clear it and continue tapping F12 or start over] I would suggest you use the windos CD and choose the CD device to boot from, then it will recognize the CD drive. You could follow the CD start up options to peform a repair of windows. If you do a repair, then you should also perform a virus scan immediately after. If after all that, you still have issues, then it's likely the hard drive itself is bad or going bad and you should look at replaceing it. Good luck.

Repair your computer is missing from the F8 reboot option, how do i do a factory restore with this option missing


If you can boot into Windows, click on start and then open your control panel. Then click on recovery. Then click on advance recovery and select return computer to factory conditions. Answer any question and the system should reboot. Answer a few more questions and then it should go on autopilot and reset your system back to factory conditions. This should take one or two hours. It is best to check on it to make sure everything is going fine. If your resetting a lappy, make sure you have the AC adapter plugged up. You do not want this process interrupted.

If you can not boot into Windows then try Advanced boot options. When you press the power button, start tapping the F8 key. You will see the advance boot menu. Select repair your computer. Select your language and then enter your user name and password. The click on Dell factory Image Restore and next. Answer the question and it should start the recovery back to factory settings.

If all else fails try recovery from the recovery partition

When you press the power button start tapping the F12 key for your puter and the BIOS menu will open. Select recovery from the menu, answer the question and the recovery should begin. Depending on your puter this will take one to two hours.

Your BIOS menu should look something like this. Yours might be different. I am posting this to give you an idea of what it looks like.

ESC = BIOS menu

F1 = System Info

F2 = System Diagnostic

F9 = Boot Device options

F10 = BIOS Setup

F11 = System recovery

Dell latitude d600 i hit f1 then nothing else happens the d600 just stays on window loading up page i can only get into safe mode nothing else what do i do


Hi,

If the problem lies on Windows this can be repaired. First, If you are using Windows 7 or Vista, we can try to launch startup repair from the advance boot options menu. You can access this through tapping F8 right after you turn the computer on. Tap F8 until you get to the advance boot options menu. Choose "Repair your Computer" and this should guide you on how to do the startup repair.

If you are using Windows XP, we need to try to boot to safe mode and see if you can boot the Operating System from there. To do this, it's the same drill, tap F8 repeatedly on your keyboard once you turn the computer on until you get to advance boot options menu. Choose safe mode and press enter. This should load the operating system to safe mode. If you are able to boot from here then that means one of your "drivers" has failed the OS to boot normally. If all of these fails, We can try to repair the Operating System by booting using your Restore CD or your Operating System CD from the CD-ROM drive. Reboot the computer and press F12 (or whatever it is that makes you choose to boot to CD) while seeing the pc manufacturer's logo, this should give you the options to boot to CD-ROM. It will give you a quick prompt of "press any key to boot to cd..". Make sure you press the space bar during this time to initiate the boot from CD-ROM.
For Windows XP, Once the Windows Setup loads, Choose "Recovery Console" to repair your computer. Just choose the installation you would like to repair (normally it's number 1) then it will ask you for the administrator password. By default, the password is blank, but if you set a password for admin then use that password.
Once you get to the prompt, Type this command. "CHKDSK /R" (without the quotes). It will initiate the repair for your OS. This might take an hour or so. Just wait for it to finish and it will automatically reboot your computer. Let the computer computer reboot normally. You should be able to get to your normal windows screen back.

For Windows 7 and Vista, do the F8 and choose Repair your Computer, Choose the installation you want to repair then choose command prompt. Type CHKDSK /R and that shoudl initiate the repair for your OS. Most of the time, the "startup repair" should do the fix for Vista and 7, but just in case it fails, do this step.

BTW, these repairs are designed to repair the OS without you losing the data you have on the pc.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.

How do I install Windows 7 etc on new Asus 5X DC


get the windows 7 cd, put it in the DVD drive, watch for boot options when the computer starts something like "press F9" for boot options. Its typically (F9-F10 or F12) select boot from CD Follow the prompts. If you cannot locate the boot options. Go into System Setup at boot and change the BIOS Boot order, To CD first then hard disk.

I have a dell D820 which will not switch on today, sometimes it gets to the windows XP page sometimes the initial dell page. Other times nothing at all. All worked well last night


immediately run a diagnostics for the hdd alone power on laptop then keep tapping F12 then run the diagnostics. if no errors found then.
try this. power on laptop then keep tapping on F8 to boot options then select last known good configuration. if same problem then boot in F8 then safe mode if still the same problem. use now the OS disc to do startup repair. Boot F12 then select DVD drive in booting make sure the OS media is already on the driver. then just select repair computer then make startup repair. if all fails this might end up reinstalling OS as clean installation.

Computer won't boot


I assume, you have windows Vista, on your computer. If the startup and repair is not repairing the system. The operating system has crashed.
If you have the windows VISTA dvd , there is a possiblity to run startup and repair from the dvd to fix the problem.
But before you do the same, just run the diagnostics on your harddrive.
1. restart your computer
2. Tap on the F12 a couple of times when u see the DELL logo
3. Select HDD diagnostics

Post back the results

Thanks

Bootup problems


AS you boot up, try tapping the F8 key until you get a window giving you the option of multiple types of boots. Use the safe mode boot.
Then do a system roll back found in your system tools.
