Try booting in safe mode - Switch on as normal, while you pc is booting press the F8 key several times until several boot options appear, one being "Start in safe mode" select said option and wait, with luck, a windows shell will start up.

Click on Start - All programmes - Accessories - System Tools - System restore. (This is XP, Vista & Win7 will be slightly different)

And restore to a date before your problems arose.

If that doesn't work we're into re-installing an operating system, which will clear everything off your hard drive. So before you do that, down load and create the Ultimate Boot For Windows CD:-

http://www.ubcd4win.com/downloads.htm

This will boot up with a windows type shell with loads of diagnostic tools etc, but which may help you retrieve data from your HDD.

Finally, if you don't want to pay for an operating system like widows, try Ubuntu, its free :- http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download



Good luck.

Have emachines laptop power on black screen says error loading operating system hear hard drive running and f11 does not work


The window files are corrupt, or the hard drive has issues, since you don't have a windows 7 disc and you cannot access the recovery partition, the next step is to have the hardware tested for possible replacement.

How do i reset my emachine t5048 to factory setting without the windows boot disc?


Some computers will have a recovery partition you can recover from it will prompt you as the computer is booting. Emachines are very low end computers and don't typically have a recovery partition. If you didn't create the recovery disc you will need to order it from Gateway's website as they own emachine.You can order recovery media from https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=emachines

Free reboot program windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt. That's what I'm getting.


The registry is the file that connect all the other files of Windows together. If you don't have a backup for it then the only thing you can do is to reinstall Windows. If you need to recover some files before that then boot from a Linux Live-Cd and copy them to another external disk or memory stick.

Hello,
Borrow an installation Cd of your OS. Configur your computer to boot from CD.
Boot from CD, Choose (R) repair option. The recovery Console appears. Enter the number (1, 2 or other) that corresponds to the partition the system detected. If you see only one installation then you enter 1. You will then be asked to log in as administrator by supplying the password you entered whwn you installed.
When the C:\> prompt appears type
COPY [your_file_name] [SPACE BAR] C:\WINDOWS\system32\ [your_file_name]
After that Press [CTRL][ALT][DEL] to restart.

It should copy the missing file and you will be able to reboot.

Hope it helps

ASUS eeePC 900 Keeps rebooting at XP load screen.


You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

Computer crashed?


Ouch, sorry to hear that, your os is corrupt, could be one of many reasons including a virus, or just a corrupt HD. Get the OS disk that came with your computer and reboot, make sure to boot the DVD/CD not the HD, start the install process, you will eventually get to point where you can select to do a repair, choose that and see if it will recover, if it does you shouldnt lose anythig, but you will need to reload some drivers and an update.

If this computer came with XP Home, and you don't have a disc, then they would have put the restore files in a separate partition on the hard drive. Do you have the manual for the pc? It's possible to recover your system without losing everything. What happened when you used the recovery disks and XP Pro?
