Be sure you have no cd's, dvd's, thumb drives or floppys in the drives.Turn off all peripherals. If the problem persists then "disk error" says it all. A new hard drive may be in order. Especially if the machine is a couple years old.

D610 loop on boot


Hi phatheadrowl,

I see you have a boot issue with your Dell Laptop.

As soon as you see the Black screen before the Dell Logo keep on Tapping f8 then a list will show up select Last known good configuration First, if this does not work follow the below proceeds.

since it is rebooting on its own, we can go an boot into safe mode, to do that once the system is rebooting and you se the dell Logo on the screen keep on tapping F8 a list will show up and we need to select "Safe Mode" , once in Safe Mode it will be windows but all drivers are disable on that point and the video will be different so do not worry, once we are in Safe Mode click on Start, then click on Accessories, click on system tools, then look for system restore then perform a restore on the system to a date when it was working fine or not rebooting on its own on the issue.

And if you have a Windows disc that came with your Dell you run the Recovery Environment and do a Fixboot but if you do not have the Windows Disc Fixboot will not work without a Disc.

I hope this helps.

If you have the Disc please send me a message so I can provide you detail on how to perform Fixboot / fixmbr

When i turn my laptop on it just says configerating 3 of 3 and 0% then shuts down and resrarting can you help and i do not have a backup disc


Hi there,
It sounds like you have a corrupted update, try tapping the F8 button as the computer is booting, select to enter safe mode from that menu then once the machine has booted, run system restore from the accesories folder and restore to the last date you know the machine to be working (maybe even earlier if you dont install software frequently. Once this has completed the machine should reboot into normal windows. Presuming it does, I would recommend you then run windows update to try install the required updates.
Hope this helps

Windows will not boot and wont go onto system recovery trying to restore to factory settings


For windows XP:



Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

...to reboot your computer. I am really sorry, but that means that your windows wont start because root folder is corrupted/damaged. On HP machines usually f10 is restore button. If not that one try f8.Reboot your computer and start tapping f10 till you see restore options. Then have your choice.Good luck!

Need to reset dell inspiron e1505 laptop how do i do that


Hi, shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application(PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.

To access the same recovery within windows.Type c:\dell\utilities\dsr\ and run Boot_DSR.exe. Then click YES and the system will reboot into the PC Restore without having to press any keys.

But if your HDD has already been reformatted and the recovery partition for has been deleted, your only option is to reinstall windows from a Microsoft Windows XP installation disc.

After booting up samsung NC10 error message saying windows could not start because following file missing/corrupt \windows\system\vgaoem.fon


OK, try, Boot Up in SAFE MODE, press F8 At Boot up, quickly, select, Boot to safe Mode desktop, with networking... simply copy vgaoem.fon file from xp disc or from net, paste file into windows system folder, done.
OR You could simply perform a system restore back to another time BEFORE you had a problem, again start up in Safe mode, F8. but this time when the choice is given to choose safe mode desktop or system restore, choose system restore, when a calendar like thing is displayed choose a time PRIOR to this problem happening, follow instructions and before you know it your PC will be back.

I have a IBM thinkpad T40, while working on it, the laptop shut down and started to reboot. but only got to a point where it said could not find operating system.after a couple of times tring to reboot it,...


Whilst booting up have tried tapping the F8 key to get into the safe mode menu and either select the last known good configuration option or the safe mode option to load the operating system to then try and determine the cause. Should this suggestion not work a safe option to recovering your data is to buy a USB hard disc drive docking station, whip out your hdd, slot it into the docking station and retrieve your files using another PC. Repairing the operating system using the XP disc on boot up sometimes works but also trashes your personal data if it's on the C drive and it reloads the o/s.

Shuts self off during start up


Sounds like there could be a major problem with the hard drive.

Have you got an XP or Vista cd? NOT a restore cd.
