Problem restarting, "press r"

I don't know what happened but when I turned on my computer it says on a black screen there is a problem and I need to press r to repair. I tried pressing r at every time I could but nothing happened. When I inserted the computer's CD nothing happened either.

    I tried both and they did not work. For "Safe Mode," it started to load but then the same message came up- "Windows cannot start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system You can attempt to repair the file by using the CD" When I do "Last known good configuration," the same thing happens-all I get is that message.
    Thanks

    OK, I would do that but whatever I do, whether it be rebooting it, starting it in safe mode or last good configuration, it brings me back to the "press r" prompt. So, I cant do anything without getting the prompt, and can only get to the Windows Boot Options screen.
    Thanks

  1. Start the laptop
  2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
  3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
  4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
  5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
It "should" now load normally, if not then..
  1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.

    Do you understand any Dos commands?



    Lets play in Windows Dos =)

    Put your Windows Cd in and boot it. when it asks what you want to do select R for recovery console. It will drop you to a cursor in Windows Dos (I am assuming that is where you were getting to before by presing R)



    Type this exactly pressing enter after each line.

    cd system32\config

    ren system system.old
    copy c:\windows\repair\system
    Hit the reset button and try to boot normally

    If you have your Windows CD, pop that into the drive and boot from it. You will get to a section of theinstall that asks the same thing. Select R there and it will load it off the cd instead of your HDD.

My daughters desk top computer will boot up when I press f1 and then it shuts down and brings me back to a black screen and tells me to hit f1 and reboots. When the windows does come up I dont have time to...


Remove the battery from the motherboard and check that it has 3volts or above. if not then replace it. That will cure your pressing F1 to continue all the time. As for the restarts then you will need to turn off Automatically restart in the control panel,system section. To do this you will need to boot into safe mode. Tap the F8 while booting until you get a black screen with white type on it. Its first option is to boot into safe mode. hit enter on this screen and windows will start with no drivers loaded. the screen will appear very large. navigate to the control panel as mentioned above and untick "automatically restart". Ok that and reboot normally. now you will most probably get a blue screen of death. note the first stop code. it will appear something like 0x000000??. Its the last two digits that are the clue to why this is happening. Google the stop code and you will now know why this is happening and do something to stop the problem.

Compaq Presario SR1000 won't boot up completely :(


Hi Thanks for your question
I would suggest to enter "safe mode" and then do system restore again. To do this you need to follow these steps.
1.Turn your PC on and press F8 on start up. This should take you to the screen asking what you want to do. 2. Choose safe mode from the list and press enter. 3. Once safe mode loads you should be asked if you want to restore your system to previous state. Just press no to run system restore and follow steps (you already know how to do this)
Shutting your computer down without closing operation system properly may cause start up issues like this one.
I hope this helps you. Good luck

Hi. Try these simple steps: Restart your computer and press F8 when you see the Dell Screen. In the advanced Windows Option, choose Last Know-Good Configuration and press Enter. If nothing happens and you didn't boot to windows, you may need to reset the system back to factory image.

To do that, Do the first 2 steps if you're using Vista. If you're using Windows XP, on the Dell logo, Press Ctrl+F11 to boot from the recovery partition. Follow the instructions to recover system back to factory image.

Hope it helps!
