MSI problems When I need to re-boot my pc it takes approximately 6 tries before it boots up. When I run certain programs on my pc that require a re-boot it shuts down ok but, it won't boot up. I only get a black screen and then it attempts to boot again. It will continue doing this for approximately 6 times before it fully loads.

My computer: icannot start my computer: message cannot update registry and cumputer must shut downand to address this matter we need tocontact the manufacturer.

Sounds like your registry may be corrupt. Might have been caused by a virus. Try booting up in safe mode. If you can do that, try running an antivirus program. If it does not boot up then, you may have a more serious problem which requires a windows repair. If it does not boot in safe mode, try booting up off your Windows install disk and follow repair instructions from there.

I have an E-Machine desktop PC that is failing to boot. It is running on windows 2000. When it starts booting, it says that one of the files needed for booting is missing. It further tells me to run a...

Windows 2000mag-glass_10x10.gif boot disks allow you to by-pass damaged Windows 2000 operating system files to get your computer up and running in a solid, stable configuration. You simply tell the computer to access the Windows 2000 codes necessary for start-up from your floppy disk drive rather than the hard drive. Creating the set of four boot disks is specific to this version of the operating system
  1. Step 1 Insert the Windows 2000 Professional CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Insert a formatted, blank diskette into the floppy disk drive. Have three additional formatted, blank diskettes standing by.
  2. Step 2 Click "Start" at the bottom left corner of your computer screen to open the start-up menu. This lists the start-up actions available for Windows 2000. Select "Run." The program then asks you to designate the drive, program, folder or file you want to open by either typing the destination or clicking "Browse," to select the destination from the Windows 2000 directory.
  3. Step 3 Click the "Browse" button at the bottom of the pop-up window. The PC's hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif directory window appears.
  4. Step 4 Browse the computer's hard drive directory and select the CD-ROM drive to designate it as the destination you want to open. Click "OK" to open the CD-Rom drive. The folders and files saved on the Windows 2000 CD now appear in the directory format.
  5. Step 5 Select the "Bootdisk" folder. A directory of files appears.
  6. Step 6 Double-click the program file "Makeboot.exe," then click "OK" to launch the Windows 2000 boot disk maker program. The program checks that you have a formatted diskette in the floppy disk drive and then begins to make the boot disk.
  7. Step 7 Watch your screen as the process of making the boot disk progresses. The boot disk for Windows 2000 requires four diskettes. The program cues you to remove the first diskette and insert the second, and so on until all four diskettes are created and the boot disk making process is finished.

'Error code 5 cannot boot from disc' message when trying to clean install windows 7 on 'Time' computer system about 6/7 years old. 2 gig memory, 1250 Athlon processor - MSI board New hard drive

What MSI board in particular? At any rate, it would run like molasses through a carbon filter; get some newer hardware from the trash or re-use programs or by sacrificing money to the Windows 7, Videocards and Systems sellers.

More detail in when the error popped up might be handy too; if you got the message before the Win7 DVD was booted, it's because you didn't go into the BIOS and tell it to boot from the DVD instead of your blank HD. That is great that you can change that, but to save some money and time you might buy a carbon filter and some molasses....

The computer stops loading and waits for approximately 2 minutes before continuing to boot. When we removed the hp Printer usb Plug and the computer boots fine. Please help. Thank you, Althea Mason

The symptom you described happens because your printer is capable of reading memory cards.

When you turn on your pc with the USB cable connected, your pc is checking the memory card slots in your printer to see if any of them contain a valid operating system that can be used to boot the pc.

Once your pc determines the memory slots do not contain a bootable operating system, it then continues the boot process and loads the operating system from your hard drive.

When you disconnect the USB cable, the memory card slot are not present and the pc boots normally. I've run into this exact same situation at work with certain models of HP printers.

My best recommendation is to check the BIOS in your pc to see if it is possible to disable the option that allows your pc to boot from USB devices.

When you first turn on your pc, the screen will display a message informing you of which key to press to enter the setup program. This is where you want to check to see if the USB boot option can be turned off.
Note: Not all pc manufacturers provide an option to disable booting from USB devices.

If you can't disable the USB boot option, check to boot order to make sure the internal hard drive is listed before any USB devices.

I have to say though, setting the boot order so the internal hard drive appears before any USB devices does not always solve the problem even though it should.
