First things first. Do you have your Windows disk?


If so follow these steps:

1. Insert Windows installation disk.
2. Restart computer and "press any key to boot from CD" when the text appears in the top left.
3. Windows will load all its basic files in order to function, don't worry, at this point nothing is being erased :)
4. It will ask you what you want to do. The options will be 1. Install windows 2. Repair windows using the recovery console 3. exit without installing.

5. Choose install windows, Don't freak! It wont do anything bad. It will now search for existing copies of windows and ask if you want to install a fresh copy or attempt to repair an existing windows installation. That's what you want, attempt to repair the existing windows installation (pressing "R" does this if I remember correctly) It will then begin to copy over all new fresh windows files replacing your old ones but leaving YOUR data(files) intact. After it finishes it will ask you to reboot or wait 15 seconds to reboot. either way works. When it starts up again it will say again "press any key to boot from CD" DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING AT HIS POINT!!! Just let the computer start up as normal.. if this does not work.. let me know and we will find out if the hard drive is bad.. lets hope its not :) It could be something as simple as writing a new MBR or Boot. Either way we'll get to the bottom of it one step at a time! Good Luck!

It might be PSU issue. I would recommend to consult a hardware technician... Also use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix windows registry errors. Sometimes PC failure errors occurs due to errors in windows files.

Computer wont start up...


It means it cannot find it's operating system or windows to start. When a PC boots it checks for boot devices, usually the floppy, then cdrom, then hard drive, if there is a disk in the floppy or if your pc is set to boot from cdrom and there is a disc in it - it will say OS not found.
The second possible cause is something has happened to windows - either the hard drive has failed or windows has lost it's startup files. If the drive appears to be normal and chatters slightly on startup ( a light clicking noise) then possibly running the original windows install disc and reinstallin windows should fix the problem, on 98 or ME you can re-install, on 2000 or XP try the recover/repair option first.

Windows wont boot up when I turn on my Toshiba


You need an antivirus program to be installed after installing your operating system. Do it in safe mode. If problem persists let me know.

Don't have acces to system


Assuming this is Windows XP. Press F8 before the Windows XP logo appears during boot. Try either "Safe Mode" or "Last Known Good Configuration". Safe Mode will bypass loading certain parts of Windows, while the other will fall back to the configuration from the last successful boot.

If you are not using Windows XP, please clarify.
