Question about Operating Systems

1 Answer

Windows won't load. It keeps going to the page where you have to decide either to load in Safe Mode or to to last configuration or to load it normally.  When I hit any option it reboots and goes through  the process all over again and lands back on that page without loading. The DVD drives don't work so I can't go into the windows on a disc.   Any suggestions?

My hp pavilion a820n computer will turn on but won't start up

As the computer is starting up keep hitting F8 until you come to the boot options screen. Once in the boot options select "Last Known Good Configuration" and see if it will start. If it still will not start then try and see if the computer will boot in safe mode (Do the F8 thing again until you reach the boot options screen again and click on "Safe Mode").
If it will not load into safe mode then you may need a Windows O/S Reinstall.

When starting my laptop it gets to the 'Installing Windows Updates' screen then just reboots. I've tried safe mode and 'last known good configuration but it doesn't work.

On startup (previous to the windows screen loading) press F8, from this list presented use the arrow keys to select "last known good configuration" and hit enter.

Can you reload last known good configuration? Tap F8 as the computer boots up to pull up safe mode, etc options. If that doesn't work, you're SOL. The fact you cannot even boot up safe mode pretty much means you're hosed. If you have files on that hard drive, I would recommend pulling the hard drive out and getting the data off w/ a hard drive adapter. Once all files saved, I would wipe the drive and reinstall the operating system. Sorry. Situations like that ****.

My asus computer has just crashed, it wont open the vista it says windows could not start, a recent modification could be the cause of this problem, how do i get it started

press f8 key at early boot and choose "safe mode". if that boots, "last known good configuration" should get rid of bad added driver, if that won't work go to help and support in safe mode and pick an earlier restore point for when it did work.

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.
