    Same issue. Windows will not boot up in any mode. I see the Microsoft logo then a blue screen that appears real fast and shuts down the computer then automatically tries to reboot again.

    The system starts booting. While I'm about to get the windows prompt the system hangs. The booting is halted there and I need to restart the system by switching off. So I have a problem while booting and this happens every alternate time.

I had that problem. I know what you could try. Before turning on your computer, unplug any USB devices plugged in. Turn on the computer and wait. If it gets passed the part where it didn't work it's fixed. Another thing you could try is this. (You must have at least two computers or a laptop) Get a floppy disc or if you have burning software use that. Make a bootable disc or in the case that you are using a floppy disc go into format and format as bootable disc. By the way, you must have the same OS as the other computer. When that is done put the disc into the suffering computer and go into where you find Safe Mode and boot from the CD. (or floppy) Now try doing whatever comes on-screen. Another thing is if you have a Norton antivirus (ect.) then put the CD in and boot from that. Hope it helps

Samsung dvd 616e driver is missing


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

My computer msi brand is automatically restarting and some problem are appear but i cant read becouse it is continusly restarting...i rem the time when im not in my mood and keep badtrip to my computer so...


You have two options to remedy the problem. You really need to access the computer in Safe Mode and view the System Logs to determine the offending piece of hardware or software or virus. But your real question is how to stop the reboot. Use the F8 Key during boot. Right after you turn the computer on, start hitting the F8 Key. The Windows Boot MEnu will appear. at this point you can do one of two things to try to fix the problem. You can enter the computer in Safe Mode which load Windows with only the minimal necessary hardware and software drivers.If you want to see the error message, choose option 8 which tells the computer not to automatically restart after an error. This will enable you to determine the error message on the screen and prevent the system from just going through an endless loop of starting, erroring-out and restarting..

F8 (during boot) Holding F8 when booting displays the Windows Boot Menu
SHIFT (during boot) Holding SHIFT down when booting forces Windows into Safe Mode

Let me know if I can be of any other assistance to you

Accidentally put my system on standby mode..using XP OS and DIY desktop.now i cannot get out of standby mode..check KB and mouse ok..any shortcut key or other ways i can start up and boot?even my two DVD...


I think you have to shut your computer down completely and reboot. This means that you will lose any work you didn't save before going in standby mode.
If your PC has a 'reset' button (usually located near the power button), press it. Your machine should reboot. If it doesn't or if you don't have one, you can try pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds. This should shut down your computer completely. Press the power button once more and it should boot normally, though you might get a warning saying Windows didn't shut down properly. If you get the choice, just choose to boot Windows normally. If pressing and holding the power button doesn't work, try looking for a power switch on the back of your machine. It should be near the power cable. Flip the switch, wait a few seconds and flip it again, then boot your computer as usual. You might get the same message which I mentioned above.

No good computer stuck no good i say


While the pc is powered on, load the windows cd into the cd rom and restart the pc by pressing the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys, when the pc reboots you should see a black screen with white letters asking you to press any key to boot from the cd.

Carefully following the options install Windows and then to repair the operating system. NOT the repair console option.

If you are not asked to do a repair then stop as this solution wont work and you will likely need to reinstall Windows.

At this point windows should repair any damage files and reboot. Following the reboot, do not press any key, instead wait for Windows to boot normally, you can remove the cd after Windows boots.

All of the icons from the screen disappeared!


try to reboot your computer into safe mode.

To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
Then click start
click run
type in msconfig
uncheck everything under the startup tab except your antivirus
and reboot
