This might be due to windows getting corrupt or due to virus on the computer. It can also be due to some software causing startup trouble.

Restart the computer and right after tap F8 key continuously.
You will see advanced boot menu
Use up/down key on keyboard and select Last Known Good Configuration and hit enter
It should boot you up.

If that does not work, do the above procedure and instead of Last known select safe mode from the list.
Run antivirus scan and check if it removes virus.

If that does not help, reinstall windows.

Windows boot manager says windows failed to start, why?


This is caused by a corrupted boot file, maybe it has been turned off or had a power failure when shutting down.

Can not boot up computer


possible your hard drive

A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.


In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.


It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.



Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.


If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."

Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system


From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".


If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.


Reset the hard drive.


This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.


If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.

This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.


Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.

Repeat Step 2 if necessary.


If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.


hope this helps

Want to wipe hard drive on dell dimension 8250


You don't need a recovery cd (or any other cd) to wipe the hard drive. Boot to a command prompt and type "format c:"

Reinstalling your operating system is the only time you need a recovery cd. If you have no way to reinstall your operating system, don't wipe the hard drive.

After fdisk and format of hdd install of os freezes after 2min. when it says windos is starting, tried differant versions of windows does the same thing!!!! Please help!!!!!!


PXE media failure means the system is trying to boot via Network card not your hard drive. When you performed fdisk then formatted the disk, you might have not selected an active or logical partitioning to support the OS. Run the PSA diagnostics by holding the Fn button before turning on your computer. If it gives you an error, it means your HDD has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If it freezes during the the loading of files during the installation, it means that your RAMs are bad because the windows loader dumps all the information to the RAM chips. If it does hang during the installation of files, two points of failure are to be looked upon, the RAMs and the HDD. I recommend you reset the BIOS to the factory settings as to reset the boot priority so it does boot to HDD first, not to any of the bootable drives available on your computer.

Toshiba laptop


Does your laptop manage to boot up to windows and then freeze or does it freeze before it starts to boot up?

If it freezes before bootup, it sounds like a bad motherboard and/or processor.

Please respond...
