It has crashed , and i need to do a system restart, all i get is a command prompt, can you help me ?


Try to restore your machine first to an earlier time by doing system restore on safe mode if you cant log in to the normal windows.

1. After restart keep pressing F8 or keep tapping F8 until Advance Boot Menu appear
2. Use arrow key to navigate then choose Safe Mode
3. Click Start button then choose All Programs
4. Click Accessories then choose System Tools
5. Click System Restore then follow the intruction on the window.

Your computer will automatically restart when system restore is finish

If this doesnt work then you need a Windows CD to reinstall you Windows again.


Hope This ill be helpful. Than you for using Fixya.

How to repair hard drive


<span>Instructions</span> Things You'll Need: <ul> <li> <span>Operating software installation or build CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Boot-up disc</span> </li> <li> <span>System restore CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Backup tape</span> </li></ul> <ol> <li> Look for tell-tale signs that your computer is about to crash or fail. Extreme slowness, repeated blue screen and noise or clicking are sometimes signs that your computer hard drive is about to crash. When you hear the sound of clicking, scraping or grinding, immediately turn off or shut down your computer. Doing so will prevent any loss of data.<br /> </li> <li> Power down and then power up. Sometimes, hard drive crashes can be easily recovered by doing a power shutdown of the computer. Then, after waiting for a couple of minutes, power it back up again. The initial hard drive crash may not be too serious, but if it happens often, start performing a full system backup, if you haven't been doing so, to be able to recover your data should the inevitable happen.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); PC cable or component connection </span> Ensure that your hard drive and other internal components are seated properly. If Steps 1 and 2 do not work, you may need to open your computer's CPU to check on some of the drive connections. Sometimes connections get dislodged, especially if you move your computer box often. The symptom will manifest as if the hard drive has crashed, giving you a "disk error" when you try to boot up your computer. First, turn off your computer and unplug it. Then remove the case of your computer box. Press on each connector to connect it properly. Put the cover back again, plug the computer and power it back up.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-800X800.jpg'); }); Boot from CD drive with a boot disc </span> Insert your boot disc and try to boot up your computer using the disc. Once you are able to do so, you can reinstall your operating system. After installing your software, proceed to perform data recovery using your ghost CD or backup.<br /> </li> <li> Use an emergency repair disc to get your computer to work again. Then restore from the last known good configuration.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your operating system using the installation or system restore CD that came with your computer when you first purchased it. It will take you through a series of steps that include formatting your hard drive, which will then erase your data. Do this as a last resort.<br /> </li> <li> Recover your data by using a restore and recovery software or using your most recent backup after you have reinstalled the operating system in the previous step.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your applications that did not come with your computer when you bought it. Some examples would be Adobe Photoshop, anti-virus software and movie-making software.<br /> </li></ol> jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); <span>Tips & Warnings</span> <ul> <li> Call technical support if you are unsure of what to do. They can walk you through the important steps. You can also take your computer to a PC technician who, for a fee, will do a system restore and data recovery for you.</li> <li> Make it a habit, even if your computer is healthy, to do a complete backup so your important data will not be lost.</li> <li> Never attempt to open your computer without first powering it off to avoid being electrocuted.</li> <li> Do not open your hard drive case; the components are so sensitive that even a single speck of dust may erase your data.</li></ul>

Thinking ahead for a computer crash keep your driver disk handy


Keep your restore disks safe so then can't be scratched. If restore CDs didn't come with your computer or you cant find them, Save yourself a headache and go to the computer vendors website under support and download all the drivers for your system. Your sanity in the event of a computer crash will thank you.

Oh yeah Back up your data...

Use system restore to a restore point before your computer crashed. AVG is one of the best antivirus programs out there. I even recommend it.

If your are using Vista, insert the DVD and boot from the CD/DVD. When you get to the install page select the repair your computer option.
From the options select System Restore.

On a personal tip:

I am currently using BitDefender Tolal Security and I am recommending this one also.
If you have formatted your harddrive, then you are SOL!!!

Okay my sony laptop windows vista crashed . it turns on but then it goes to a blue screen , i can get it to safe mode & i tryed disabling stuff but it like wont restart either , it goes from a blue screen...


Boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key on startup, once you're in safe mode, run the system restore tool (usually in start -> program files -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore) to a few days earlier and restore. After that, install an Anti-virus application, such as AVG Anti-Virus, and scan your computer to remove the problems.

Hope this help!

My nec did not come with restore Discs, but it has crashed, now i have no OS. What can I do?


Borrow discs from someone else or contact the maufacturer.Some systems have a computer restore built in.You can try continuously hitting the "F11" key when you first turn it on to see if it has the restore partition.
