Question about Computers & Internet

I can't get access to my computer's welcome screen. I think it has something to do with the hard drive. I can't get past the black screen with codes. It says NTLDR missing. What can I do? What does it mean?

Try pressing F8 after you turn on the system, I suggest tapping it because each system has a window to recognize the keystroke. This should bring you to OS selection, choose last known good configuration, and if that doesnt work choose safemode and update, reinstall any missing file reported.

I have a dell 1735 studio laptop. When I turn it on I have only a black screen. I'am able to do a diagnostic and I am getting an error code 2000-0146, but I can't get past the black screen.


Hello here is some info about your dell:

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/p/19342733/19736103.aspx#19736103

Error 0146 indicates a failed/failing hard drive or bad drive sector.
Basically, this means your hard drive will need to be replaced.

Here is the home page:

A computer repair shop can help you with recover your data if is not damaged by the bad sectors.

I recomend to change the system to windows 7 (32bit) because the support for vista is out by this year.

Good luck

My toshiba tablet won't let me go past the welcome screen


If this is under warranty take it back. If it isn't power the unit on with just the battery powering the unit. When you see the Windows splash screen drop the battery out after the screen goes black put the battery back in and press the power button. This should bring up the on screen menu telling you it failed to start or shut down correctly. Select, Boot in Safe Mode and see if the system will power on. If that fails you need to do a system restore. To access system restore options power the unit on and press and hold the F10 key, this will bring up the restore Windows options. From that menu select to restore your operating system. If that fails you will have to do a complete restore to factory default settings. If that fails you will have to replace the hard drive.

If you are getting format errors on the hard drive, the most likely failure point is the HDD itself. If you have tried a known good hard drive, then next item I'd suspect would be the system RAM

If you have access to a second computer you can try installing the hard drive on it as a slave and then do a full virus scan. After this completes and hopefully removes all the virus's you might be able to put the drive back into the original computer and do a windows repair from the windows XP CD. If not then you would need to transfer the data off the old drive and reinstall windows from Scratch. I would recommend doing it that way if possible as it gives a better chance of not being reinfected by something on the drive.

If you are unable to access your welcome screen, and it is giving you a hard drive related error, it may be possible either your operating system is corrupt or your hard drive has failed. If you have already tried your recovery disc, your hard drive itself may be at fault.

First, verify that there are no discs in any drives, such as floppy or CD and then try to turn your computer on. If you cannot get to your welcome screen and you get an error about your hard drive, try using your recovery discs. If that doesn't work, you most likely have a faulty piece of hardware in your system, most likely your hard drive.
