When I boot I get as far as a screen that reads in part
press F11 to start recovery
This does not work. F11 takes m to a choice of boot or bios as does Ctrl + Alt+Del to restart. Also NTLDR is compressed. I have no discs to bypass and get me to the desktop.Can I do something in the bios or boot page.

    Just so you know, this problem happened when I used the e-machine recovery program.it appears to be stuck on the boot up process. It also reads boot from CD,which i have no software for. Removable is listed as my first boot device under the boot menu F10. i tried to change this to hard disk and it is not retained by pressing enter(accept).
    unfortunately I get nothing when i press F8.

Have you tried pressing F8 at boot time and booting in "safe mode". Then you can think of a solution.

While your system is still booting from start, keep hitting F11 to get past that point then proceed with the system recovery.

My dell notebook stoped working it shows only curser on the screen and there are some lines on the screen nothing wrong with the power supply


If it does boot to windows and only does not shows the icons..than you have to click right on the desktop and choose to show icons ..and will be ok ..If the screen you wrote about is just a start screen and it never started windows..than I think it is a windows fault and need to be reinstalled .Do that by entering the recovery partition and go with the total installation of the operation system ..
to do that choose the key indicated on screen and select the action ..
usually on start screen it is written to press F2 for the set-up and f12 for the boot menu and probably F11 for teh recovery ..if it is so ..just press f11 on start ..go to recovery ..choose complete recovery ..and will get it to the factory stage .
If the recovery do not work and you do have a disk for it ..insert the disk and boot from it ..try to boot to recovery with the disk on ..and see if ti works..if it dopes its ok ..if not ..restart . and press F12 to go to boot menu .and choose to boot from CD /DVD drive ..and hit enter .. this will force it to boot from disk and load the recovery .
same procedure with a boot-able disk with operation system, ..in case you do not have any recovery ..or just have recovery for drivers..and you will be forced to use a standard boot-able disk to load the operation system again
have a nice day ..and please rate my answer ..1

I want to reboot my entire system so it starts from scratch, how do I do this?


If your system does have a recovery partition (typically says press f11 for recovery during boot if you have one) Reboot the pc, press f11 during the asus screen. The system restore utility will guide you through the rest.

If your system does not have a recovery partition
Take your system restore or operating system disc, Put it in the cdrom, reboot the computer.

When your pc starts back up (during the asus logo screen) During this screen there is usually a key sequence you can press to pop up the alternate boot menu. Typically the key is esc, f8 or f10. If one of those is right it will bring up a second menu asking what to boot from, select your cdrom. The cd will boot and your system restore disc will guide you through the rest..

If pressing F11 ("system recovery") does nothing, then your disk-drive, which contains a "system recovery partition" is inaccessible,
i.e., your disk-drive has failed.

You'll need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, and use the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.

I don't have recovery disk and if i press f11 then


How far will windows get in the boot-up process before it stops loading? My thoughts on this would be using the F8 key when you first boot up your computer. After the inital screen comes up with your laptop information, press the F8 key. This should gice you the options for safe mode. Load windows in safe mode, then go into start - Programs - Accessorys - system tools - system restore and use that to restore your computer to a point in tha past that the machine worked correctly.

Machine won't boot to win xp


You have two choices:
1) Insert your e-machine system disk and boot from it. It should ask you if you want to install Windows or repair it. Choose R for repair. Then when you get the black screen with white writing, choose your windows installation (usually #1) and then press enter when prompted for a password. When you get the c: prompt, type chkdsk /r
This might fix it.
If not, then try the process again and don't choose "r" but continue through the screen when it asks you to accept the Microsoft agreement by pressing F8. Then on the next screen choose to repair the existing version of Windows. It will reinstall the system files and may actually fix your problem.

My computer lost all its memory and is claiming to need a system recovery cd where can i get it


System recovery can be accessed during initial boot up before the Windows screen comes up. In most cases you need to press F11 to begin system recovery. There should be a message that flashes across the top of the screen shortly after you turn on the computer that instructs you to press F11 for emergency recovery. Do it. If you do not see a message, try pressing the F11 key several times right after you start your computer, sometimes the message to enter recovery does not appear because the manufacturer places there logo page on the initial screen.

You need to do a recovery using the recovery console. There is an option during startup, if you are running XP or later, to press F11 for emergency recovery.

Press F11 and choose the option to recover and backup.

This will backup all files and programs currently installed on your computer.

After the recovery process finishes, you will have to go through the process of setting up your computer, like you did when you first bought it.

After you are all setup again, it is a good idea to create recovery disks under the 'Start' menu, 'Recovery' option.

Stuck on ibm splash screen.


If system does not start on your A21 you may need to reinstall the system. To perform a recovery or repair, do the following:

Make backup copies of your data files, if possible. Any files on drive C that are not backed up will be lost.
Do one of the following (for best results, use the F11 method):

If you are using the Product Recovery program for recovery purposes, turn off your computer for at least 5 seconds. Press and hold the F11 key while you restart the computer. When the Product Recovery program starts, release the F11 key.

Note: If pressing the F11 key does not start the Product Recovery program, then your recovery partition is corrupted, in this case you will need to use a Recovery Repair diskette.

If you are using the Product Recovery CD for recovery purposes, place the CD in the drive (if you have more than one Product Recovery CD, use Product Recovery CD 1). Then, restart the computer. The Product Recovery program starts.

Do one of the following:

If a menu is displayed giving you an opportunity to select an operating system, use the arrow keys to move to the appropriate operating system, press Enter, and then continue with the next step.

If an operating system menu is not displayed, continue with the next step.

From the Product Recovery program Main menu, make the appropriate selection (IBM Rapid Restore PC, Factory Contents, or System Utilities), and then press Enter.
Follow the instructions on the screen.

If your recovery partition is gone this company is offering a download of A21 restore disks for $19. You will need to download from them on a computer with cdrw, and then burn your recovery cd yourself.
