Hello Tracey, your boot files are damage, either by bad system files or bad clusters on the hard drive, the best solution that I can offer are the following. The freezing is caused by either two things, bad memory module and/or a bad hard drive boot sector.
Try replacing your memory modules with new ones, to replace the modules, open your PC side panels, the memory modules are those flat sticks being held by snaps on the side, push the snaps off to release the modules. bring them to a PC shop for replacement. Replace the modules back. Get help from a friend if you do not know how.
IF the above mention does not solve the problem, then you have a bad hard drive. You need the CD installer of Windows, and a high capacity flash drive for backup. So open your PC side panels. (ask a friend if you do not know how.)

  1. Manually remove the hard drive on your PC, and install it on a good known PC, if you are using Windows, then the good known PC should be the same version of Windows, and as the good PC boots up, it detects the bad hard drive and fixes it automatically, run scan disk to be sure, and after the fixes made then back up your important documents, return your hard drive to the original PC. Then back up your files.
  2. IF you have unimportant documents on your fallen hard drive, simply reformat and install a fresh copy of Windows. If you are a VISTA fan, the files are automatically backup on Windows.old folder.
Thats it keep me posted

System restart has been paused/pressf8 advance startup nothing happens


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell what file has been corrupted or missing you might be able to work your way through problem if you are unable to find a solution

restart back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time
click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option

hope this helps you

Most of the services on my vista have been disabled and i am unable to start them again . this happened after my laptop hanged and i had to start it by the last best known settings option .


You must have logged into safe mode before running last known good configuration, that is the reason why it has loaded safe mode settings when you chose last known good configuration.


You can be trying to do a system restore (start - type system restore - right click on system restore and click on run as administrator) and choose a restore point when you know your computer was working fine (before 2 or 3 days) and this should take care of your problem.

Won't boot up


hi there mike, have you tried using safe mode? once you gain access to windows safe mode try to perform system restore. click start then all programs then accessories then system tools then system restore. select a date that you could remeber that the computer is working fine. that should solved the issue. Now, if same error happened after choosing safe mode. then i recommend to use the recovery disk that came with the system for you to be able to use your computer again. thanks!

How do i use a emachine restore disk on a compaq


You could try booting into safe mode and restoring your computer to a time before the update was installed. Was the update KB977165? If memory serves, this update may crash your system when you are infected. Read more here:
http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=7377&tag=nl.e539

Try tapping F8 when you turn on your computer, select "Last known good configuration" and see if it will load the OS that way. If so, you will want to run some scans. I recommend Malwarebyte's Anti-malware to start:
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol

And then run an ESET Online scan
http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

If last known good configuration doesn't work, try F8 boot again, selecting "Safe Mode", and go into system restore to restore your computer to a point before the update was installed.
in XP it is START>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

Did this resolve your issue? If so, please rate it. ty.

Hi my computer will only come on in safe mode wont go on internet and when i try to do anything it tells me im not authorised


You may have to resort to re-formatting your computer and restoring it to day one. You might have gotten a virus that hijacked your computer. One way to check is bootup in safe mode and try sustem restore. Also in the boot up page just after your bios boot, see if there is an option available to select called " Boot to last known working configuration"


Hope this helps

Emachine loop again


Try first of all 'Last good configuration'
If still no go consider what it is you have done latly in termso of installing new software or a new hardware device.
Remove the most recent.
Finally in Safe Mode go to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and reset the machine to a time before the problem started.

Emachine trouble


There are several causes that are common.
The first,especially with e-machines, is they do not like service pack 2 updates.
If you have a standard winxp cd you can boot from that and choose repair console once the cd starts to load win xp files.

First, I would attempt to load windows by as it boots, press F8 to go into options, select first LAST KNOWN GOOD Configuration

If that doesn't work then select SAFE MODE.
If you can get in in the SAFE MODE, select ADMINISTRATOR
no password and try and undo changes that were made.

Laptop won't comeback on


Try safe mode.

On safe mode return the computer to an earlier date configuration.

At some point will ask if you want to do that. And say yes.

Make sure that if for some some reasons it asks you to restore the computer to factory settings, you should say no. I hope you can do this.

dot.gif How to load last known good configuration. Question: How to load last known good configuration.
Additional information: The "Last Known Good Configuration" option was first introduced in Microsoft Windows 2000 and is available in all later versions of Windows including Windows XP. This feature enables a user to load the last working version of Microsoft Windows. This is a great step to try when trying to fix issues with a computer not being able to load into Windows.
Note: Users able to open normal Windows XP mode and who wish to restore their version of Windows to an date before the last known good configuration may also wish to consider doing a system recovery in Windows. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000589.
Answer: To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key. Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP safe mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the safe mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option: Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows. Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything? No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.
