Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

Laptop Startup Hello mate, firstly thanks for taking the time to respond to my problem about my laptop not booting up. It is appreciated. I tried following the instructions you gave me and it boots up in safe mode but when I try to run C:\Windows\System32\Restore\rstrui.exe it cannot be found. I checked it and the only file in the Restore folder is one called "MachineGuid" or something similar - I can't remember exactly. I have Vista installed on my machine, could that be a reason for it? If you have any more ideas, I would be very grateful for your help. Many Thanks Shieldsy

Hi dear

oh so sorry to hear that

this methode for windows Xp

and let try this

Microsoft Windows Vista users Tip: If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration. Additional information about this mode can be found on document CH000626
To get into the Windows Vista Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Choose Advanced Options for: Microsoft Windows Vista
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable low-resolution video (640x480)
Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
Directory Services Restore Mode
Debugging Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Disable Driver Signature Enforcment
Start Windows Normally
Description: Start Windows with only the core drivers and services. Use
when you cannot boot after installing a new device or driver.

ok

I would suspect the power supply or a power connection. The only other issue might be a motherboard, which is a bit more involved. Try another power supply if you have one around.

Hello there.

Nice to see more people trying out Linux :-)

From your description it sounds like the CD image you downloaded is not bootable. What i would do is scrap that CD and try the following, this is a guide that explains step by step how to take the downloaded .ISO file and burn it to CD, so that the computer can boot from it (known as a bootable CD).

Please click here for the information.

As Ubuntu has a partition program as part of the installer, you can use this to resize your Windows partition and install Ubuntu in the free partition left over.

This should get you setup in no time :)

Hope this helps.

First, disconnect the laptop from the ac adapter and take off the battery and the memory. Press the reset button on your laptop. Connect your ac adapter only and press the power button two or three time while everything else is disconnected. Then, re-install your memory and your battery. Connect the ac adapter to the laptop and to your power source. Now turn on your laptop and see if you get a display on your laptop screen. If you do, then you have reset everything and you are back to where you started. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

After installing windows security updates, i could not get windows vista to come up and i don't have a recovery disk from Acer for my Acer Aspire T180 PC Desktop.


I run into this all the time, thank you microsoft!
First, shut it down and take a break, make sure you power the computer completely down to a cold boot. Walk away for ten, fifteen minutes.
Then when you come back boot into your setup (bios) screen, to do this is different for each manufacturer, some require you to hit del, some F2, some F10... when you get there Change your boot order to anything other than what it currently is, and save it. Reboot. let windows try to start. if it does, great! If not, reboot and Go BACK to the setup screen and change your boot order BACK to what you NEED/WANT it to be and save again and reboot. This SHOULD take you back to a windows startup of either a repair or safe startup screen. DO NOT REPAIR! Boot normally. The updates lost a startup configuration that is written INTERNALLY to windows. Since you altered the hardware configuration by changing the boot sequence around, windows had to rewrite this and away you go. On a laptop it gets a bit more confusing as you have to do this without the battery in place or it will continually write the data to the hard drive under the laptops auto powerdown/save features that a desktop does not have. NOTE: if this does not work any other bios change other than clock/calander will force this dmi configuration change. but typically the boot sequence is the safest to alter, as you do not risk messing up critical setting with this one.

If this is new, I would suggest pulling your hard drive and letting the factory take care of it. It's a shame your having this type of issue with a new system.

Lets try something first though. Boot the laptop with your vista disc in it and hit any key when it tells you to. After windows loads, it should give you options, choose repair startup. This is of course if you performed this right. The computer is not going to give you a alot of time to choose when it says hit any key to boot from cd, so watch close. As soon as you see the Toshiba screen tap F12, this will bring up a one time boot order change menu, arrow down to the cd/dvd drive and select it by hitting enter, the computer will reboot and will try to boot from the cd. This is where you have to be watching for the hit any key message. If you get to the point where windows is loading files off the cd, there may be hope we can take care of this here. First try to repair the start....reboot and let the computer reboot without the disc....if it does not do it all again and this time choose to restore the computer to another time and pick a day or two before the problem. choose ok and let the laptop reboot and restore. See if it will reboot onits own, if it does, great.....if not get back to us.

Touch buttons dont work properly.


Your Laptop is "booting up", which is another way to say that it's starting up. When it is doing this, it has a regular starting procedure and it is loading the Operating System and then the Programs you have installed on your Laptop. After installing a large program, or some software that requires a quick update/scan of your laptop - like antivirus software, it can take a few minutes to finish starting up your laptop. When it has finished loading all of the software from its startup menu and updating certain software, then any buttons (like volume or CD eject buttons that you may have pressed while it was busy starting/booting up).... these actions will then begin to be recognized by the laptop. So, while your laptop was starting up, if you were trying to turn up the volume on a CD that was in your laptop, nothing happened, and then decided to try to pop the CD out, and nothing happened, when the laptop was finally ready to acknowledge the buttons that were pushed, they seemed to happen automatically.

Bottom Line: Give your laptop enough time to startup completely on its own. While your laptop is busy during startup, there will be a little light on your mouse pad area that looks like a round storage barrel facing upward. After all your normal startup software has finished booting up and antivirus software has finished their tasks, you should be good to go. For me, my laptop has a 60-GB hard drive and I use Yahoo-IM (that starts up when my laptop starts up), and I have McAfee antivirus (which searches for updates when my laptop starts up, my wireless connection software looks for available wireless routers to connect to (not just mine), Windows Vista searches and installs updates, Google + MySpace + Twitter search for their updates, etc..... the barrel icon mentioned above stops blinking and that tells me that my laptop is now ready. I just tested my laptop startup and it took 9 minutes for my laptop to finish booting up (I am using my desktop for this message). You might want to DEFRAGment your Hard Drive, which should help, but this may take a few hours to complete depending on the size of your hard drive. If you have an Antivirus Program, it likely has a Performance / Maintain Computer option which should also help.

My toshiba satellite p200-140 laptop will not start up. the power button lights up but nothing else happens. it was working fine last night


My laptop had a similar problem. I left my laptop running and some time later when I went back to my laptop, it would not startup. The power light seemed to be on but the laptop would not function. I tried several things like pressing on the power key for some time without any success and also tried all sorts of alternate buttons and sequences.

I resolved the problem by first disconnecting the power cord then by removing the battery for 5 minutes. I then re-installed the battery then connected the power adapter.

As soon as I turned the power button 'ON', the laptop booted up again.

Hope this works out for you.

Regards,
Rick
