If this doesn't work try to mount your hard disk on another computer.
Restart the computer and after Bios loads up and press F8.
Then select Safe Mode and press Enter.
Run a virus scan, assuming that you have an Antivirus program installed.

It saids start up fails messing an wont repair it self


See if you can access the advanced boot options menu, power it up and keep pressing the F8 key to bring up the screen. If you can, select the option for Last Good Known Configuration. If this doesn't work, power down and this time (hit F8 again) try to select the Safe Mode. Safe Mode boot the system with minimal drivers. If you still can't access Window via Safe Mode then you will have to re-install Window with your recovery disc.

Dell wont open windows in start safe mode


You need to run the check disk utility. You have corrupt or missing boot or system files.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Imedia system32 error


okay this is a confusing post/question. you can always start a machine from bio regardless of what operating system you're running. if you're attempting to boot from the disc, tap f12 @ boot until you get a one time boot menu and choose the dvd/cd drive. that should load the setup file. the windows disc does not load setup onto the hard drive. if you're running xp when you have the option hit 'r' to repair the computer, when you get into command prompt type sfc /scannow. this will search and fix all system files. you can also try chkdsk c: /r this will fix any errors in the file structure. good luck

My windows xp wont boot up programm starts but then a black screen come up and nothing


Unfortunately that means either your windows installation is corrupt and needs to be reinstalled or the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced. If you do not have a windows xp disc you will need a technician to do this as you will not be able to without the disc. If you do have a disc however follow these steps.

First insert the windows XP disc into the drive
Then when the machine says press any key to boot from CD press enter
Wait for the windows setup to load completely
Then highlight the windows XP partition it should be labeled windows XP
Then hit R on the keyboard
This will start a repair installation of windows

If the windows disc cannot find the hard drive or the repair does not completely unfortunately it means that the hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.

Boot pc problem 2


Yes you have to delete the partitions making one large drive and then format it in NTFS as XP is more secure in this file system and utilizes the space better.

You can solve this by going into the bios setup & changing the boot order. Make the dvd/cd drive 1st in boot line then hdd. This should allow you to boot up from the windows xp disc. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.
