It seems to me that you have two ways to go. Either you let it install in safe mode and try to see what is wrong. The most usual problem is in the synchronization of the CPU and other dependent sections of the computer. The other way and the one I would do to save time, I would re-install the windows system disk. Ninety nine out of every hundred times, whatever was wrong will be fixed, because the re-installing system will check it and re-install it. Thank you very much. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)

Why won't my sylvania netbook which runs WINDOWS CE..but it NEVER gets to the desktop page...what wrong?


I'm not familiar with Windows CE, but I have had similar problems with Windows 7 on laptops.

Try keeping the F8 key depressed when starting it up. The F8 key should allow you to start in 'safe mode'. I would imagine that the F8 'safe mode' is also to be found in Windows CE.

Keep pressing that F8 key as it powers up and hopefully it will present you with a screen that gives you a choice of 'safe mode' or network prompt. Choose 'safe mode'.

If your computer then starts in safe mode (it's just a minimum amount of drivers loaded to start the operating system) .. restart it again and see if it starts normally. You may have to 'play' and keep restarting it and pressing F8 ..

You can also change the boot up sequence as the computer starts. This is usually done by pressing the 'delete' key -or escape or f12 key (it varies from computer to computer)..

.. to take you to the bios settings. Change the boot order..if the dvd drive/usb is the first boot up device change it to hard drive as the first boot up device .. and see what happens.

It's almost as if the computer gets stuck in an endless cycle of 'trying to boot up' which is probably due to software conflict, for whatever reason.. some driver may not be loading to allow it to boot up correctly.

  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode). Or, you could also try uninstalling last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Re-install Windows.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

After loading the laptop, the screen goes black showing only a white mouse cursor that you are able to move. Even tried loading in safe modes but the page still doesn't load.


Please restart the computer in safe mode and check if that is loading. If safe mode loads well, then run system restore (Steps depend on the windows version you have) and restore your computer to a earlier date (say 1 or 2 days earlier) when you know that your computer was working fine.

If you cannot login to safe mode then we might have to do a manual registry restore
Please use the link to know more about it. If you are going to use the step, please keep a printout handy of the instructions.

For Vista & Windows 7
Boot from OS DVD and run startup repair.

Can`t get windows to start i was installing system mechanic 8 it ran some tests up pops a banner saying windows won`t restart. i can`t get it to reboot


Shut it down forcibly.

Restart and boot into safe mode by repeatedly pressing F8

Once in safe mode use the system restore option to go back to a time when it ran OK.

It should then restart and you should be OK.

If you cannot do a system restore then do the F8 type restart again but choose last known good configuration and try that way.

Hope this is of use.

Computer boot up


There is either a problem with the graphics driver not starting properly or the boot.ini file of the operating system is corrupt. First thing to try is press F8 on boot up and this will take you into safe mode, if prompted for a password just press 'enter' When in safe mode highlight the line 'Last known good configuration' and press enter for a reboot, if all boots ok then it should be right. If still no screen, press F8 again on next boot up and this time select boot windows in safe mode and if it boots ok, there maybe a graphics fault or a driver error for something that starts on boot up, as in safe mode only the minimal drivers start (hence safe mode). If you get into safe mode first, right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then go down the hardware list to graphics adapter,and click on '+' sign to your adapter, right click on line and select uninstall. Restart the pc then it will be automatically installed again and the drivers loaded. If you are still unable to boot then it is a process of ilimination to find what is causing the problem, but it will more than likely after trying the above be a windows system file error and require you to use your XP disc for a system repair.
