Re: boot problem

This being the case use the system restore CD and restore from it. When the laptop boots off the CD try using the repair function and run chkdisk /r this will cleanup the system files and restore missing or damaged files. If this does not fix the problem you will need to use the same disk and restore the operating system.

Screen will noot come on

Try booting into safe mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you start your computer until the boot menu comes up. Then select "safe mode with networking".

If you can get a "safe mode" windows screen to load up then you just need to reinstall your graphics card driver.

My mini notebook will not boot up past the windows logo, what can i do to boot it up ?

After the Power On Self Test (POST) and before Windows starts you need to hit F8. If you do it right you will get a menue that allows you to boot to Safe Mode. Before choosing Safe Mode, try the Last Known Good Configuration.

My computer is stuck in safemode. it load in asfe mode even if i put normal mode on?

Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems. -

When i turn it my eee pc on it pops up to where it says windows and thats as far as it will but it will only load up in safe mode

Try restarting your notebook and hit the "f8" key after you see the first screen come up. Keep hitting the F8 key until you see a menu that says "start in safe mode" start in safe mode with networking......
Start in last known good configuration....Start windows normally.

Try using Start in last known good configuration.

Hopefully, that will solve the problem that is hanging up your windows from starting.

Dell will not come on has a grey screen and can

Attempt to boot the machine into Safe-Mode.

Continuously hitting F8 while booting will get you to the Boot Option Menu.

If you can successfully boot into Safe mode, this may be enough to put things back together.

Attempt Safe-Mode and if successful try a normal boot.

Start from there and let us know the results.

Safe mode set up in sony laotop

When powering up from a cold start press F8 as if tapping on a piano. You may get a boot from what screen first, in this case press Escape and then F8 immediately thereafter. You should then see a Safe Mode Selection boot screen. Options include, Last Known good configuration. Often this is a good choice. Sometimes you are presented with a selection of Restore Points to choose from as well. These all depend on the Bios you have and what version of that bios is installed.

Do the F8 tap tap until you get the Safe Mode boot screen. When you do choose Safe Mode, you are then asked what OS to boot, usually this is only the version of XP or Vista you have onboard. In any case take that and press Enter again.

Don't dismay should you not get the F8 key press right the first time, there is a certain knack to it.
