Start the computer and when the computers splash screen shows (dell) etc. tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see the multiple startup choices. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" and select it, you will see the operating system listed as the target operating system, click that (hit enter) start in safe mode. When it boots do you see the screen with no problem? if so then the resolution may be wrong on the normal start up. On the dektop in a clear area free of icons, right click and scroll down to properties, click on settings, then move the resolution slider to either 800 X600 or 1028 X 768. click on yes to change the settings, restart the computer by hitting start > Turn off computer > restart. Reboot it normal mode (just let it boot as you would normally) If you can see the screen, you are all set, if not there is another issue to deal with.

Cant access bios to change boot order to reuinstall windows 7


Boot the computer and watch the screen. It will tell you what key to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it won't work and you will have to restart.

It also shows you which key to hit to change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order. But you have to hit the key when the message appears on the screen or it won't work and you'll have to reboot. This is a temporary 1 time change for the current boot cycle. When you change it in the Bios or System Setup it's a permanent change.

My screen will just be black after when it should go to the blue login screen. how do i fix it?


In the BIOS setup under Video choose the built-in adapter and no Dock video. Save and Exit BIOS setup. The system reboots. If it does again doesn't give you the blue login screen, press and hold the power button to shut it down. Restart it again and immediately after the Dell screen press and hold Function & hit the function key with the display on it. I think it believes you want your primary video to go to an external monitor. This should correct it if that is the cause of your boot-up blankness.

How to install new microsoft XP operating system


This worked for me:
http://www.buildeasypc.com/sw/windows_xp.htm
I have to ad, that if putting the cd in to your computer and restarting it doesn't give you an option to install the windows xp, you should go to bios by pressing "del" key on your keyboard just after you reboot and altering the boot priority from bios. (it's different in some computers, so i can't give you the details, but you can browse around for the boot device priority setting, and if you are afraid that you have changed something that you didn't want to you can always just reboot without saving)

My laptop screen is blue with horizantal lines. After I installed a graphics card driver everything went fine, but the next day the laptop's display started acting weird. So I turned off the laptop and...


The OS-loading screen is a stong indicator that thee is nothing wrog with your hardware, but it is a driver issue. You need to press F8 as your computer starts up and enter SAFE-MODE.
Windows 7
Using the F8 Method:
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap the F8 key on your keyboard repeatedly until you are presented with the Windows 7 Advanced Boot Options screen as shown in the image below.


    windows-7-f8.jpg
    Figure 11. Windows 7 Advanced Boot Options screen
  3. Using the arrow keys, select the Safe Mode option you want.
  4. Then press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Windows 7 Safe Mode.
  5. When Windows starts you will be at a typical logon screen. Logon to your computer and Windows 7 will enter Safe mode.
  6. Do whatever tasks you require, and when you are done, reboot to go back into normal mode.
In safe-mode remove & delete the drivers you installed. If you can, revert to your old driver set.

The notebook tries to boot upon power up but simply shows the Windows XP screen scrolling by and does nothing else . .


The windows on your computer is cleary corrupt and no longer able to start up.

one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore discs or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation


insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

let me know if you have any questions or if you need anything else.
Thanks,
Ekse

System reboots


Blue screen usually means memory problem or critical hardware conflict. You could have a damaged memory module, or dust might be on the way of the memory.
