Laptop startup problem

Vista laptop refuses to start on reboot - says there is an error and when I ran repair, memory check and attempted to take back to last check point, no joy. I upgraded realplayer yesterday and have not rebooted since - otherwise no real changes to explain it. Any ideas very gratefully received.

    Thanks for the suggestion - but I had fixed it going the F8 - Safe Mode reboot route - that enabled me to restore to a point when the system had been OK. Made sure I did a new back up as soon as I could though, just in case - and will increase the frequency of my regular backups to "daily" from now on!

How can i reboot my acer laptop


Press Start(ORB at bottom left for vista/w7) and if you're on windows 7/vista, there should be a list button on the bottom right side of the start menu saying "Shutdown"(windows 7) and "Sleep"(Vista), click the list and click Reboot.

On XP you need to click the Shutdown button and before you click shutdown instead click Reboot(Green button If i recall correctly).

How to fix BOOTMGR is missing" Error While Trying to Boot Windows Vista


If your Windows Vista computer has encountered the dreaded “BOOTMGR is missing” error, you aren’t alone. If the problem isn’t hardware related you can fix it with relative ease as long as you have a Windows Vista DVD handy.
If you don’t have one, you can create a Windows Vista repair disk using our guide

Boot off the Windows Vista DVD and then click Next at the first prompt

You should see a link in the lower left-hand side for “Repair your computer

The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory. If there’s more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again

Click the first link for “Startup Repair

Alternatively you could have chosen the Command Prompt option instead, and use the following command to fix the boot options only:
bootrec /fixboot

At this point you should be able to reboot your computer, remove the DVD and everything should be working. If not, then head over to our forums and ask your question there.

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.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875; Recovery Error 10-fc12-045d HELP!!


no it is not fried. you just need to find a vista disk and use that instead of the recovery disks. Once you reinstall Vista you should be able to go online for the Toshiba drivers. Make sure you have the windows Vista Key which should be located under the laptop. the vista software install will ask for it.

Computer will not boot up. I have tried to boot up in safe mode, normal, safe mode with prompt command...nothing works, just goes back to the normal start up screen and keeps doing the normal start up over...


It looks like you're encountering an endless reboot? Here's what to do to find the actual error message.

  1. Turn on the computer, and press F8 after the POST screen but before Windows attempts to start to access the advanced startup options.
  2. Select "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" and press Enter.
You should now get a blue screen with an error message and error codes. Please write these codes down and report back.
