Question about Archos Internet Media Tablet MP3 Player

1 Answer

Archos 5 constantly rebooting after reset. I keep seeing the welcome screen, "Archos, entertainment your way". I have booted it in the safe mode by holding down the volume + button after powering it on. Selected repair disk, format disk, but it continues to do the same thing. Also, tried the hard reset using a paper clip. Again the same thing. The device has been upgraded to the latest firmware just a couple of weeks ago.

    OMG!!!!
    JUST GOT IT TO WORK!!!!!!
    okay, so when you go to safe mode, go to repair disk, plug it into your computer, download the archos 5 media tablet software from archos.com (you may have to search for it on google a while) paste it onto your archos's icon on the desktop and then follow the on-screen instructions on your archos.

Why does my nextbook keep asking me if I want to put it in safe mode?


The device went into safe mode because the app that you downloaded was not a safe application. The device does this so that the application cannot cause more problems to your device. Even though the app was downloaded from the app store it was not deemed safe by your device. Here are some tips that will help you to get your device out of safe mode: -Ensure that if you have a case on your device that you take it off being that the case may be holding the volume button causing you to boot into safe mode -Try turning the device off then back on to get out of safe mode -Power off your device, then reboot by holding the power button + volume up key, then in the boot menu select reboot device -This is sometimes caused by the users accidentally tapping safe mode when cutting the device on so simply restart your device Most users have success by simply restarting the device in order to be able to get out of safe mode. Do your best to restart or reboot your device before you have to perform a hard reset to get the app off of your device to no longer go into safe mode In order to hard reset -Power off device -Hold down volume up + power -Release at the boot menu -Use the volume keys to highlight factory reset -Press the power button to select factory reset -After this the device will begin to reset itself -After it resets itself use the volume keys to highlight reboot device -press the power button to have your device rebooted in its factory settings

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the Windows OS is already messed up. You should be able to boot the computer to safe mode to troubleshoot the issue. In your case, it is not booting up to safe mode then the only way to use your computer again is to restore it from the factory default state. If you want to do that, just turn off the computer then press the ONE KEY button located beside the power button then follow the on screen instructions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Why does my dell inspiron 1501 freeze on the welcome screen?


Hi,

Try to go to Safe Mode by reseting the computer then tapping F8. If your able to acces safe mode follow these instructions:

1. Go to start then click on RUN
2. Type msconfig
3. go to services tab, click hide microsoft services then click disable all
4. reboot the computer and see it it will go to normal mode. It you will be able to boot to normal mode it only means that one of the isntalled software is preventing windows to load
5. if still cant boot you neet to reformat the system


Thanks for using Fixya.

How to open in safe mode


Turn on the PC - as soon as the BIOS screen dissapears keep tapping
F8 - this will bring up the boot menu and let you select "safe mode".
If you get to the Loading XP screen with the moving bar you pressed F8 too late, reset and try again.

Stuck on the ARCHOS Screen and it won't do any thing


A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

B) The Archos 705:
1- Connect the unit to its power source.
2- Start the unit in recovery mode: Press the TV button first then the power on/off and keep pressing TV button (do not release it)
3- The recovery mode will start (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the TV Button (it is all explained to move through the menu at the top of the Archos screen) (Do not press "Format" at any time)
5- Now that you are on "Repair" select it to validate your selection
6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" plug it with the USB cable to the computer
8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

C) Computer
1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

D) On the Archos 705:
1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
2- you are done! The Archos 5 or 7 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the power cable until the process is finished
4- When done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
5- Press on/off button to reboot

Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
Good luck!

Archos 5 frozen screen


I have found a solution for this issue, if you hold down the volume button and the power button for several seconds the Archos goes into a restore type mode. You then plug it into your computer and download the latest firmware update and cut and paste it onto the archos removable hard drive icon that appears in my computer. It will take a few minutes to update but then it will work perfectly.

PC notebook will only start in safe mode.


Hi,

Try doing a System Restore, once you have booted up in Safe Mode, to a time before you had the problem.

Hope this helps
