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.

After installing a modem driver in my Dell Optiplex360 XP, it detect the modem and when i try to access the modem through device manager or uninstall from control panel the system hault. and a message like...


Did you download the driver from the DELL site?
If you use your resource CD, it will detect the hardware in your system correctly.

Start the system in safe mode (F8 at startup
Go to Device Manager (Control panel, device manager)
Remove the modem from the list
Now insert the resource CD and after it loads, it will pout check marks next to each item that is found in your system
Select the modem and install the driver.

If you do not have the resource cd
Boot to safe mode
Start the device manager
Remove the modem
Install the driver from the dell website
Reboot

If these do not work, the modem may be at fault.
If it is the modem that came with the machine, it could be going bad.
If it is new or different modem, it probably is incompatible with your system.

Cd player not recognizedinsafemode but there it sits in devicemgr


I think the vnetbios.vxd error is because the PC once seen a network connection (LAN) which is no longer present. The only way I ever cleared this was to put the LAN card back (Once seen - NEVER forgotten - It seems). This however is not causing your CD problem! Try this and get back: -
  1. With PC off disconnect the CD from IDE.
  2. Re-boot and interrupt start up to go to BIOS settings.
  3. Ensure that your hard drive is the ONLY IDE device present and that it first device on first IDE and MASTER.
  4. Re-boot and allow 98se to start normally.
  5. Go to "Device Manager".
  6. If there is still a CD device present - delete it. If not - continue.
  7. Shut down the PC.
  8. Re-connect the CD and re-boot.
  9. Interrupt again and go to BIOS settings.
  10. Ensure that you have Hard drive as First device (Master on first IDE) and CD drive as second (Slave on first IDE).
  11. Re-boot and allow 98se to start normally.
  12. Try the devices now in "Explorer".
Best of luck! Ian.

For no apparent reason my laptop will not now work. I turn it on and it goes through the setup system, it gives a message that it was not shut down properly, I click on start in safe mode and nothing...


First run disganostics on the system and see if you get a failure code. (Fn +Power Button on Dells) of from the F12 menu, or Boot to Resource CD. If those pass, boot to a windows XP CD, press R to enter Recovery Console, and run the COMMAND CHKDSK /R then see if the system will boot to windows. If that fails, you'll like need to reinstall Windows

Windows failed to start.


You're getting that error message because the boot files on your hard drive (the required inaccessible device) are corrupted.

When first booting, press F8 repeatedly. Will the computer let you go into safe mode? If not, without the installation cd, you're kinda between a rock and a hard place. However, you can download a (free) vista recovery disk (repair only) from the people at easyBCD:
http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/EBCD/Recovering+the+Vista+Bootloader+from+the+DVD

Just follow the directions to do a start up repair.
If that works, by all means, make yourself a recovery cd before doing anything else.

Windows 2000 pro can't safe mode exit


The system is corrupted, that is the reason why it starts only in safe mode.
Easiest way to proceed is reinstalling Windows 2000 pro as an update installation.
To do this start a Windows installation from Windows (not from dos booting with disk inside).
Do not do new installation, do upgrade installation, it will preserve all your data, and most of your software and settings.
Do a backup of all your data first.

Computer Lock Down


Force your computer to start in Safe Mode. To do that, hold down the F5 key when you start up and keep holding it until you see that your PC has booted to Safe Mode. (Another way to do this is to hold down the F8 key during boot time until you’re presented with the Windows Startup Menu and then choose Safe Mode from the list of options presented there.

When you’re in Safe Mode Windows skips the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files and loads a minimal set of drivers that lets your PC function at a basic level. Then do a systme restore while on safe mode......

Hope that helps..........
