If that is a desktop, it is probably cooling system failure.

  • check if cooling fan works properly
  • check if the heat sink is exactly in contact with the processor
  • clean the heat sink if it is likely to have some dirty
do tis and let me informed on what you managed to go about.

cheers...............

Easy Way --- Note that this doesn't always work.
When you are booting your system, press the F8 key during the start of the bootup sequence, meaning after it does the Power On Self Test.

Once you press the F8 key, you will be taken to a Menu. Select "Boot Using Last Known Good Configuration".

It will now attempt to load Windows XP using a past set of configuration files.

If that doesn't work, there is the next step....the hard way.

Hard Way
Boot your system with the Windows XP Install CD, let the system boot into the Setup. Once in the Setup, choose to run the Recovery Console.

You will now be presented with a screen similar to good old DOS.

First, we will recover the System Hive.

Now, type in the following commands with pressing Enter after each line.

md tmp
copy C:\windows\system32\config\system C:\windows\tmp\system.bak
delete C:\windows\system32\config\system
copy C:\windows\repair\system C:\windows\system32\config\system

Be very careful when you are typing in these commands, one wrong move, and you have, broken Windows XP.

Also, change the C in the commands to whatever your Windows XP drive letter is.

Attempt to boot the system, if it doesn't boot, get back into the Recovery Console and do the following commands.

md tmp
copy C:\windows\system32\config\software C:\windows\tmp\software.bak
delete C:\windows\system32\config\software
copy C:\windows\repair\software C:\windows\system32\config\software

I did a system recovery with the cds provided with the laptop for my compaq 2175 but when it restarts it gets stuck on the Windows XP screen and never gets past that point. How do I fix this?


You may have some malfunctioning hardware. When the computer boots up and you see the compaq screen, you should be able to perform hardware diagnostics by pressing one of the F keys. Look in the bottom right hand corner. My guess is going to be malfunctioning hard drive, especially since the computer is a bit "older" and age is rough on laptop hard drives.
I believe the key for diags is F9

Windows xp will not install


If you don't see the message on start up "Press any key to boot from cd" Then you need to change the boot order.

Start the PC and hit delete a number of times. This will take you into the bios screen. (Set up screen)

You will have a tab called "Boot Priority" or "Boot order". Make sure that CD/DVD drive has 1st priority. Save & exit & your done. Upon restart if you have a disc in the drive you will get the option to press any key to boot from CD/DVD. By default, most motherboards are set to boot from floppy & then Hard drive so in most cases you will need to enter setup & change the boot order.

Don't forget to rate me.

Won't boot past Windows XP main screen. Windows XP may have a corrupt file. How do I correct without full recovery?


Try starting in Safe Mode and check if you can start it? In case it starts in Safe Mode, you may do the system restore to the date it was working fine.

Freezing or shutoff on boot, setup or minutes into operation


Try this:

Boot the system with your Windows XP installation disk. When the boot options window appears select R for recovery console. Once you have logged into the DOS session type: fixmbr and hit the enter or return key and select "y" for yes you want to do this. Type: fixboot and hit the return key again, hit "y" for yes.

Wont load anything including bios


Sounds like your operating system has been damaged and no longer works. You will need to reinstall it.

If its xp then u will need to put the hard drive in another pc to back up any data. If its vista then all your old files will be stored in windows.old on the c drive as long as u dont format it during install.

Hope this helps?
