Laptop won't start up

I dropped my laptop and it worked afterwards but when I turned it off and tried to restart it, it wouldn't boot up. It gets as far as the manufacturers screen, beeps and then tries again. I can get in to bios but can't get any further.

The hard drive is ok as I've taken it out and put it in another laptop and it works.

Any ideas on what to do would be appreciated.

Samsung q430 stuck splash screen

Unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to reboot. If that doesn't work, unplug open Memory Bay, reseat Memory Mods. Open the HDD bay, reseat the HDD. You may have jarred something loose. One can only hope you didn't damage the HDD.

How far does it get in booting. Do you see the Windows screen with the side scrolling bar before it reboots. During the boot process, start hitting the F8 key once a second until it drops you into a menu where you can select to start in Windows with safe mode. If you cant get that far, hit the DEL key a few times a soon as you boot the computer to try to go into your BIOS. If you can get into either of these, I may be able to help you.

Samsung v5 wont start up

Setup? Why is it even going into a Setup? Did you try to reinstall windows and somehow cancelled or the system crashed in the middle of it? Maybe you mean start up? Let's assume it won't get past Start up. Turn off the laptop and turn it on again then immediately start hitting the F8 Key until you see a screen that will allow you to boot into SAFE MODE. When you see that screen scroll down and you should see an option that says something like Cancel or Stop Automatic Restart On Boot. Take that option and that will allow you to see why the machine keeps restarting. Afterwards turn it off again and repeat the steps previously defined to get to SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot into windows. Windows will look bigger and darker in Safe Mode, that's normal. Now click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Run System Restore and restore it to a day and time before you started having this problem. System Restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures or videos, so it's safe. However, System Recovery destroys all data, docs, music, pictures and videos and sets your system back to the point where you first purchased it. Depending on your operating system you might have a different way to get to System Restore, but it's on your system. If the restore points are damaged and will not let you get to a previous date and time then you will need a system disc to get into the recovery console and type the following command: chkdsk /r Check disk will run well over an hour and you will see the percentage toggle from high to low but that is normal. Let it run until it finishes then reboot.

It seems there is no booting as the memory is not responding or the hard disc is not booting up. Please check on the back up CMOS button cell battery on the back side of the laptop. replace if the voltage is low.
Also remove and reset the memory, if not you need to take consensus to know if this can be the hard disc, memory or the motherboard.

When you get it to boot, run CHKDSK/F or Scandisk straight away to try and fix any errors before you find you are unable to get to your files anymore.
Make a backup of your data before it is too late!

Windows will not start

Have a tech look it over, it could be a more serious issue that requires reloading Windows from scratch.

Hp pavillion zt1170 - not booting

You have lost your operating system and/ or you hard drive went bad. Try reformatting your hard drive and them reinstalling your operating system. If it reinstalls, try booting up your computer. Turn it off afterwards, wait a bit, then try booting it up again. If it still boots up, then you are good to go. But if it doesn't boot up, or it doesn't boot up after you restart your computer, then your hard drive is bad, and it needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
