Question about Computers & Internet

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

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.

My hp 2100 presario laptop in not booting


Startup problems
If the notebook doesn’t respond when you turn it on
• Connect the AC adapter.
• Reset the notebook by inserting the tip of a paper clip into the reset button on the
bottom of the notebook. Then press the power button to turn it on.
• If the notebook still doesn’t respond, remove the battery and AC adapter, remove
any PC cards, and undock the notebook if docked. Then plug in the AC adapter
again, and reset the notebook using the reset button.
If the notebook won’t boot from battery power
• Make sure the battery is properly inserted and fully charged. Check the battery
charge by removing it and pressing the pad on the side of the battery. The lights
show the charge level.
• If available, try another battery.
If the notebook won’t boot from the floppy disk drive
• Make sure the floppy disk drive is selected as the boot device.
• If you’re using a USB floppy drive, use the BIOS Setup utility to make sure
Legacy USB Support is enabled. If your notebook also has a built-in floppy
drive, use the BIOS Setup utility Boot menu to make sure the USB floppy drive
is the first device under Removable Drive.
If the notebook stops responding after booting
Check whether you are connected to a TCP/IP network with no DHCP server. This
can cause a long delay at startup because DHCP is enabled. Contact your network
administrator to determine the proper TCP/IP configuration

***IF THE NOTEBOOK HAS POWER BUT WONT BOOT INTO OPERATING SYSTEM-
Press F2 when you start it to enter BIOS to check your BOOT ORDER to make sure your HD is listed first on the list.
If it is not listed remove it and reinsert it and then try again.. GREAT LUCK!! Please Rate Me, K? Thanks- Lucky4lynn2

Windows freezes after startup


Its better to backup your data - booting from Ultimate Boot CD and backup to an external hard drive.
Try to do regular format or low level format to know the status of the hard disk

Does not boot properly


Try running the diagnostics (Hold the Fn Key and press the power button or boot to the resource CD) See if the hard drive indicates and failure. If HDD fails, replace it. If it passes, then see if you can boot to safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can access windows there. If it does boot to safe mode, try MSCONFIG and edit the startup group and see if the system will boot normally in normal mode.
Other possible issues, fan failure causing overheating, or a clogged heat sink (Use compressed air to blow dust out of air intakes and exhaust) Virus and spyware

Laptop Won't startup Vostro 1500


See if you can run the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics. To run the PSA+ Diagnostics on this system, perform one of the following actions:

1) Hold down the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.

2) Turn on the system, press <F12> at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select “Diagnostics” from the boot menu.

3) Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message “Diagnostic boot selected” displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.

According to Dell specs, there is no error code listed that you described, (Flashing Caps LED). Also try reseating the memory modules, (you might want to try this first).



Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience.
Thank You.

Hi, It appears that the your computer taking some time to login to windows. I suggest that when the computer finally booted successfully into Windows, you need to disable all the startup items under the system configuration.

Just type in "msconfig" under the "Run" screen and hit the enter key or click OK. Please click on the Startup tab then click on "Disable All" then hit "Apply" and "OK". You need to restart the computer to so that the settings will be updated.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks

Laptop will not respond..please help.


It is new and under warranty. Anything you do inside this laptop will void the warranty. Take it back to where you got it, and get it repaired under warranty.
