Philips laptop has fatal error message - system
Sorry about the problem.
I will try as much as possible to give you a detailed steps you can try.
And they are going to be two Options.
First options is this:
If you have a Windows Installations CD.
Insert it into your CDROM Drive, then when you put on your system,
Go into the system BIOS/Setup by pressing 'Del' key or any other key (e.g F10) required to enter setup, while the system is booting.
Now look for where you have Boot Sequence or Boot Order.
Select the CDROM to be the one where the system will boot from.
then follow the On-Screen instruction and select repair.
Next Option is if you don't have the Windows Installation CD.
Put on your Computer,
While it is booting, Keep tapping the F8 Key, and this will bring up the Menu where you will have to select the different options of booting.
First of all try out "Last Known Good Configuration".
If it doesn't work, then try booting into safe mode.
If it boots in Safe Mode, then click on start---> Accesories--->System tools---> then System restore. Then restore you system to an earlier time.
Now, If all that still doesn't work, then Select Safe mode Command prompt.
When you get to command prompt, type: chkdsk or chkdsk /p and press enter.
This will scan your system for errors and correct it.
If this does not work, type scanreg .
This will scan your systems registry for errors and fix it.
If Trying All these does not work, then Go back to Option 1.
Which means you will have to get a Windows Installation CD.
I am giving you all this trouble-shooting steps with the assumption that you are using Windows XP. (Because you did not specify your type of OS).
But In case you are using Windows Vista,
then under option 1, after inserting the CD, and booting from it,
just follow the on-screen instructions and select:
"Fix what is preventing my Windows to boot Properly" , under the options.
All these are the FULL trouble-shooting steps you will need to get your system working.
But if after trying all of them out it still does not work,
Then you will have to take them system to a good technician.
Kindly keep me posted and let me know how it goes.
Thank you for using FixYa.
