Compaq presario 5000 not booting up right.

When the comp is turned on it goes right to a screen that says to select 1 normal 2 logged 3 safe mode 4 step by step and says that windows has detected a registry/configuration error use SCANREG to correct this error but it won't allow you to do anything except select safe mode and then it gives a screen with the words safe mode in the 4 corners but nothing else.

Does the Compaq logo appear when you try to start the computer? Try pressing F10 several times after turning on the power. This should start the "recovery console", which will give you some options for restoring Windows. If the recovery console doesn't start up, there is a good possibility that your hard drive or power supply module may be defective. In that case, you will probably need professional assistance to diagnose the problem.

How do you unlock your computer if you forgot the password?


Do you have created the password reset disk ?
If you do, you can sign into safe mode and recover the password.
If you don’t have the windows password recovery disk. you have to take use of the third part utility, you can download it from http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com and the website will show how to recover windows password.

For that you need to fix error on harddrive.
For that You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set frist boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

When you boot up start pressing F8 and you should get a Windows startup page with more options. If you do select Safe Mode
When windows has loaded, goto MSConfig and select Diagnostic Startup. Ok and reboot

Provide more description regarding your issue. Is there any error message when you try to boot without safe mode? Does the computer just boot to safe mode without asking you anything? Andy
