Load Error! Press a key to reboot

I unintentionaly left my Libretto U105 in hibernate for a day or two. When I rebooted, I am getting the following message:

Load Error!
Press a key to reboot...

Is there a fix, other than reloading os?? I cannot even access the screen to select safe mode, so I can back up data. I also have norton go-back installed on this laptop, can this help?

Please HELP!!

Sincerly,

Todd

    Upon entering my recovery disk, I am warned that the hard drive will be re-written. Are there options, once I except to move forward, or is there no turning back?

If the computer after power on is checking the drives ie the CD and/or floppy to boot from then it is a software problem. You need to put in your recovery CD/disk and hope fully it will allow you to just fix the errors within the boot up files and not have to install os.

Your norton could help - try booting from that or the ones you produced by using Norton.

If you have to reload then do not format just save old - it should give you that option.

I have set up the hibernation settings for when you close the lid but now it wiont come out of it when the lid is opened


Hit the space bar or enter key to wake it up. Maybe you have to pres the Power Button to wake it up.

Read the manual to see how to wake it up.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals on the site and search them on hibernation.


Below is what your manual says to get out of hibernation you have to press the Power Button (very last paragraph at bottom).

Hibernate Mode Hibernate mode conserves power by copying system data to a reserved area on the hard drive and then completely turning off the computer. When the computer exits hibernate mode, it returns to the same operating state it was in before entering hibernate mode.
notice.gif NOTICE: You cannot remove devices or undock your computer while your computer is in hibernate mode. Your computer enters hibernate mode if the battery charge level becomes critically low.
To manually enter hibernate mode:

  • Press <Fn><F1>.

or

  • Click the Start button, click Turn off computer, press and hold <Shift>, and then click Hibernate.

or

  • Depending on how you set the power management options on the Advanced tab in the Power Options Properties window, use one of the following methods to enter hibernate mode:

    • Press the power button.

    • Close the display.

    • Press <Fn><Esc>.

note.gif NOTE: Some PC Cards may not operate correctly after the computer exits hibernate mode. Remove and reinsert the card, or simply restart (reboot) your computer. To exit hibernate mode, press the power button. The computer may take a short time to exit hibernate mode. You cannot make the computer exit hibernate mode by pressing a key or touching the touch pad or track stick. For more information on hibernate mode, see the documentation that came with your operating system.

Turn off hibernation. If its not resuming from hibernation without rebooting then is very possible it may stop loading even after a reboot.The fact that you have to reboot it to be released from hibernation could indicate a failing hard drive.

Hello,

You can enable hibernation in Windows XP by following the steps below.

3. Now you can hibernate your system by clicking on the Start button and then on the Turn Off Computer (or Turn Off ). You'll see three standard options, Standby, Turn Off And Restart.
Hold Shift key and you'll see the Standby button turns into Hibernate button. Click to hibernate (Still holding the Shift key).

3)Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
4)Click Start, and then click Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do drop-down list, click Hibernate.

To automatically put your computer into hibernation:

Got following error: Load Error! Press any key to reboot


This problem is indeed caused by a faulty MBR but there are solutions other than zero-filling the drive.
If you can get access to a RipLinux CD there is a little utility called Testdisk that will write a new MBR code to the first block of the drive. I just did this on a Sony PCG-K15 this morning (after cloning the drive just to be safe) that was giving the same error of "LOAD ERROR- Press any key to reboot" and it worked like a charm. The machine booted right up.
Hope this helps...
