When i start my pc, it starts well but a page appers telling me to start windows normally. when i click on that then windows starts loading bt after 2 sec the systems gets restarted.

1.You have to do a diagnostics test on your hard drive to check if the there are any bad sectors developed on the hard drive!

2. If your system restart, when you just click your mouse, your system files are probably corrupted and your may have to reinstall the system ie. provided your hard drive has no errors.

Here is an option you can try.
Can you boot your system to "safemode"? & Use the "Dos Prompt" to do a "Check Disk" on your System. ie Run -> "CHKDSK /f/r" (without quotes)

Hope it helps.

I changed my os from windows xp to windows 7...and i am using amd sempron (tm) processor 3400+ 1.80ghz..and 40 g hard disk..then the windows start up wont start normally. pls help!

Try hitting F8 just after your bios splash screen, before it would show the windows logo.
Select, boot in safe mode with networking.
Once you are in windows 7 safe mode, you can install any required drivers. This might prevent it from hanging on the next normal boot.

You can type in the run dialog CMD. This will open a command terminal. Type "SFC /scannow" without the quotes. This will tell windows to verify it's files. Let it complete, then reboot normally. Hopefully the problem will be resolved!

I had my laptop fixed 6 months ago and i was told i no longer have safe mode. I recently made a mistake and set my computer to start in safe mode. Now i can't get it back to normal mode. The screen says...

who ever fixed your laptop must has done some thing that has led you to this's just not possible that you wont have Safe Mode, it's one of the inbuilt safety system of Windows F8 to get into the option to go to Safe Mode or.....Normal mode of operation.....
You need to press F8 before the Windows screen appears...after you switch ON your laptop.

My asus computer has just crashed, it wont open the vista it says windows could not start, a recent modification could be the cause of this problem, how do i get it started

press f8 key at early boot and choose "safe mode". if that boots, "last known good configuration" should get rid of bad added driver, if that won't work go to help and support in safe mode and pick an earlier restore point for when it did work.

OS not starting properly

Your hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced. The whole thing about the network adapter is because your computer didn't see the hard drive's boot sector and tried to do a network boot, which you aren't set up for. So you got your error. When you turned that off in the BIOS, you get a partial boot of the hard drive but it reboots because it is bad. You can *try* just re-installing the operating system, but chances are it will stop midway or even get all the way through before rebooting again.

Computer can't load Windows.

use the up and down arrow keys to select the correct option and press enter.

Also what other keyboard have you tried, if USB you need to ensure all usb options are enabled in the bios it enable usb keyboard, enable usb mouse etc so as it will allow the usb keyboard to work and it will take a minute or two for the usb keyboard to work.

You can try and insert the xp disc and do a repair install which should fix the issue - it will get rid of any windows updates which is not an issue and it should get it working again.

If you have any encrypted data you wont be able to access that but other then that it should be fine.

Problem related to bios setup

it doesn't matter. if you are running 32 bit operating ssytem. you can get majority of the hardware drivers.
however, if the operating sytem is 64-bit, you can't run it on a 32-bit machine. that is what determine by the BIOS.
since you have install the sytem and it seems running fine. I would just leave it alone.

Sounds like your windows installation has become corrupted. Do a repair install. Let me know if you need instructions, you'll need a windows installation cd.
