Media center m370n keeps rebooting in loop wont start says KERNEL32.DLL was not found


Sounds like you have a boot error on the hard drive. Time to get out your rescue discs and reload Windows. When reloaded run CHKDSK/F to clear any errors. If you can run CHKDSK/F before having to format your hard drive, that may save you a lot of time.

My hp media centerm7250n computer wont boot up from the recovery dvd sounds as if the hard drive is spinning


Disconnect the "data" and "power" cables from the disk-drive.
Boot from the Recovery DVD, just to prove that your computer can boot. Of course, you may get an error-message, when no disk-drive is detected, but you will have proved that your computer can boot properly.

Connect a different disk-drive, and boot again from the Recovery DVD, to confirm that it will boot, when some "other" disk-drive is detected.

Wont boot, not even from CD, won't open setup or boot options


At first you insert your system disc on your cd/dvd rom driver and restart your computer. Now press F2 or DEL until you get your BIOS option. Now go to advance option then boot option in that. Now change your first boot option to CD/DVD ROM DRIVE and save that change by pressing F10. Now restart your computer and continue your installation. Thank you.

I have windows xp media center. I go to control


I would try booting in to safe mode see what happens
  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.
If it works in safe mode you may have a permissions issue or infection of some type.
Run a virus scan.

Remove any devices connected to your computer.

Online computer TV boots my system


Try a Windows system restore. Go to the start menu then to the help and support center, from there click on "restore my pc to an earlier date" windows update automatically creates backups before it installs so there shouldbe one just before your last update.

Boot up failure


Hi! Have you a bootable cd/dvd with your operating system on it? if using Windows then make sure the o/s is in a drive turn p.c. off then boot up, hopefully you'll be prompted to run from cd by pressing any key! then windows will load files ask you for location and keyboard preferences then re-install/upgrade possibly or repair! try repair?
Good luck!

The computer I need help with is my HP Media Center PC m7367c / Serial # MXK552071W / Windows xp media center 2005. When starting my computer, it locks up at the blue hp screen and never boots up.


your hard drive may be dead, try unpluggin the hard drive and plug it back in. Hopefully your motherboard will detect the hard drive, if this doesn't work, most likely your hard drive is dead
