    The pc comes on but after windows xp logo,it goes blank

    Same problem on my Gateway 500 XL PC Desktop. I went into Safe Mode, changed resolution to 800x600 (highest 32-bit), and found virtual memory to be 768 MB (recommended minimum 766 MB). Upon subsequent startup in normal mode, the Windows XP screen appears for about 15 seconds with the blue bar scrolling, then the screen goes dark. After about 10 more seconds, the screen goes into power saver mode, the screen goes completely off, and the light goes orange.

    Update from yesterday: Model is actually 700, not 500. I did not quite understand solution #1's comment about checking RAM. I thought it meant to check how much virtual memory. Today I decided it may mean to clean the memory cards and slots, so I did that. Still no improvement. Note that the computer works OK in Safe Mode.

I cannot boot up my Microsoft Windows 7 due to a corrupt ntfs.sys file. I can access command prompt through computer or cd. Please help!


As you are able to access command prompt, you can run the "System File Checker" tool to repair/ replace the corrupted ntfs.sys file. To do this, follow the instructions below:
1.Restart your system and tap F8 key repeatedly until you see Advanced Boot Options menu on your screen. If you miss reaching the screen in the first attempt, repeat this step until you reach the screen.
2.On the Advanced Boot Options screen, select "Safe Mode with command prompt"
3.In the command prompt window, type "SFC /scannow" (without quotes).
Note: There is a space between C and / in the command above.

This will scan all your protected system files and replace the corrupted files with a cached copy stored in your system.
Important: Please do not close the command prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. After the process is completed, the scan results will be displayed on your screen.

To know more about System File Checker, you can refer to the following Microsoft support page:

Hope this will help you.

Tip

When Windows XP won't start (primary fix)


Symptoms: When you start your computer, you get the black screen with a menu that tells you to start in safe mode, normal mode, etc. When you make a choice, you end up in the same place.

Solution: If you have Windows XP, you'll need an installation disk. Doesn't matter if it's yours or not. You just need a Windows XP disk. Any flavor. Put it in the CD drive and start your computer. Be sure the computer boots from the CD.
You will see the Windows installation message and the first question you will be asked is if you wish to repair Windows or install it. Choose "r" for repair. You will now be presented with a black screen that asks you which version of Windows do you wish to repair. Choose the one that is probably the first on the list--it should just say Windows. It may appear like this: C:\Windows.
You may get a second screen asking for the password. This is the password for the Administrator account. If there is not a password on this account, just hit "enter."
When you get to the C:\> prompt, type CHKDSK /P and let it run. It will most likely find errors and fix them. Once it's finished, Windows should start normally.
If it doesn't, you'll need to check out my link that addresses the "secondary fix."

Screen stays black after boot up


Use Recovery Console:

When a Windows XP boot problem is severe, you'll need to usea more drastic approach. The Windows XP CD is bootable and will provide youwith access to a tool called Recovery Console.

To boot from the Windows XP CD, insert it into the CD-ROMdrive on the problem system and press [Ctrl][Alt][Delete] to reboot thecomputer. Once the system begins booting from the CD, simply follow the promptsthat will allow the loading of the basic files needed to run Setup. When yousee the Welcome To Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.

You'll then see a Recovery Console menu. It displays the foldercontaining the operating system's files and prompts you to choose the operatingsystem you want to log on to. Just press the menu number on the keyboard, andyou'll be prompted to enter the Administrator's password. You'll then findyourself at the main Recovery Console prompt.

Use system utility software like RegInOut after restarting windows.

Reboot into Safe Mode by repeatingly tapping on F8 while in process of rebooting and then select "last known good configuration". If that fails reboot again to safe mode and select safe mode with command prompt and in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f /r " <enter>

If that doesnt work do place your Windows CD into the Cd-Rom, reboot and select option "Repair"
