Hiw do reset my Sylvania tab N77C when it stops at boot and It cant open the recovery mode


Right after you press the power on button begin pressing the F8 key. This will open a screen where you can select "Safe Mode", then hit the Enter key on your keyboard. Wait for Safe Mode to boot up (may take a minute or so). Then try opening Recovery mode or System Restore. Failing this, insert your Windows installation disk or Windows emergency repair/boot disk and follow instructions to access Recovery Mode.

"drive 1 wdc wd10eads 00m2B0 fail return" Add more to question pc powers up goes into widows 7 then the arrow stays on screen , for ever . And I can not boot from cd reports it can not find device ?


sounds like the Hard Disk is failing. try booting into safe mode by Pressing F8 Before the Windows 7 Splash Screen. The run diagnostics on the C Drive. Open Recovery by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type recovery, and then click Recovery.
You can use Recovery to restore the state of your computer's system to a previous point in time, or restore the contents of your hard disk from a backup. You can also reinstall Windows from a recovery image installed on your hard disk.

Cant get to f8 screen


LOL, most times those recovery CD's don't work. OK, I've never heard of hitting F8 to get to the System Recovery screen. Normally hitting F8 repeatedly after you hit the power button gets you into SAFE MODE or some other options for booting. I would remove the CD from the cd drive and turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately hit F8 until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option. Let it boot up. Safe mode will look different than normal windows. The icons will be bigger and the screen darker, but that's normal. Once safe mode is up click Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Run System Restore and select a restore point (date and time) before you started having a problem. Don't worry, system restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

System Recovery DELETES EVERYTHING and sets your computer back to when it was first purchased. If you must run System Recovery F8 is not the key you should be pressing.

I found the info below by putting "Alienware PC Systems M7700 System Recovery" in a google search. Sounds like you bought yourself a piece of trash.
25. System Restore And Recovery Is Not For Wimps The system restore process for the Alienware Aurora M7700 is definitely not for beginners. For one thing, the process doesn't fire off automatically as promised (at least that's what we read on the label affixed to the recovery CD included with the unit). Instead, system restore involves a complete Windows XP Home reinstall "from scratch." Likewise, the drivers don't reside on the Master CD as described in the documentation. Rather, they're located on the Utility CD. During the driver installation phase, it's irritating to get no progress report on individual drivers, perhaps by way of a simple progress bar. Also irksome, the system reboots automatically after the installation of each individual driver. Finally, those who want to succeed at restoring the M7700 back to full operability better know what a disk partition is and understand that the RAID driver must be installed from a diskette.

When I turn my computer on it displays a message stating that windows couldn't start successfully and to choose how I want it to start. Then restarts in 30 seconds and it does this process over and over.


Try this turn off the PC with the power button. Then power it on start tapping the F8 key repeatedly while the PC is powering on this should bring up a screen with a bunch of start options like this

Choose the Last Know Good Configuration from the list.
This may fix the problem, not a for sure thing. Sometimes works sometimes doesn't. This is only one option to try.

Please rate, and write testimonial if you feel the need to, if this was helpful.
Good Luck

The laptop loads up, lets me sign in, then goes blank, no icons


Try booting to the safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can log in via the safe mode. If you can't, try booting to your Windows CD, go to recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
If you still can't log in, try running diags see if the hard drive lists a failure.
if no hardware failure found, there and none of those solutions work, then re-installing windows will likely be the final resolution

How do you switch off you laptop? Try this press and hold on the power button for about 5 seconds. So it won't boot to windows? When you turn on the laptop and you see the dell logo keep tapping on F8 then try booting in safe mode, if fails do F8 again then last known good configuration, if fails do F8 then startup repair, if fails do F8 then system restore, if all fails reinstall os. but before all these steps try to test hdd first. make sure laptop is off. press and hold on the Fn key then press power button. Run the PSA test and once it finish it will show you some errors code like 0142 -0146 means hdd needs to be replaced.

Windows will not boot on acer 5315 notebook


As the unit will not boot at, i am afraid you are going to have to do a recovery which will also wipe any data on the notebook.
To run a recovery make sure it is powered off then power on, as soon as you power on you must tap the left Alt + F10 keys together at the same time, now timing is important and can take several attempts before you enter the recovery manager. Keep tapping the keys at approx every half a second or so and wait for a message at the bottom of the screen which will state " Windows is loading files" then you can stop tapping. A new screen may appear after that which will state " edit windows boot options: for windows setup or it may say acer e-recovery" if this screen appears then simply press the enter key, you will then enter the Acer e-recovery manager which will then ask you "How would you like to restore?" select the first option for a factory default reset, hope this helps.
