  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, repeatedly press the F8 key. The Advanced Boot Options menu opens. If it doesn't the motherboard is most likely bad).
  3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press the ENTER key.
If that does not work, turn PC off, Do this again, but this time choose 'repair your computer' at the top.
If it still does not work, either your hard drive went bad or Windows is corrupt. Either way Windows must be re-installed.

I have a Dell Dimension 24000 that has been in storage for a year. I recently tried to boot it up so I could find a couple of files. It starts booting up; windows logo appears and shows things are loading...


try starting in safe mode.

when you power on the PC, start tapping the F8 key on your keyboard.

this will give you the option to start in safe mode and can possibly let you find out why you cannot start up.

if it does start this way, you should at least be able to retrieve the files you were looking for.

When we start up the computer It boots up to the point where the desktop appears briefly. Then the screen goes blank/dark and nothing else occurs. If shut down it will strat up and get to the desktop...


You may want to try boot into SAFE MODE.
Do this by pressing F8 repeatedly until you are offered boot options by windows.

select SAFE MODE and continue on. Note this may take longer to boot and is normal.
when it goes into windows it will ask you if you want to continue so click yes.

If you have recently installed any programs esp. toolbars then you should use the ad/remove programs to delete them.

Also if you have antivirus AND antispyware now would be an ideal moment to let them go to work.

Now try a reboot.

When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating.

Screen goes blank at start up


Its failing to go through the full boot process. Try pressing F8 on boot until the boot option screen comes up and then select safe mode. Follow this though until you are given the option of using system restore instead of safe mode. take that option by clicking on the NO button. Restore the machine to a date some time a few days previous to the fault developing.

If that fails then put in any OS disc and boot from it. select R at the first options screen, follow it through and then select the C drive option. Just hit enter when asked for admin password.

now type chkdsk /r (copy and paste this to be sure). let it run and then reboot and see what happens

Boot problem


Try runing the machine into safe mode.

Turn your computer off.

Wait 30 seconds.

Just before the Windows screen appears, press f8.

Select safe mode.

One the desktop is loaded up, restart the computer the normal way.

See if that fixes the problem.

Booting problem


Try putting the computer into safe mode by holding down on the F8 button and selecting safe mode during the boot process. Once you get to the safe mode screen and windows appears, restart the computer.

If that doesn't fix the problem you will have to restore Windows.
