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!

System wont restore to factory settings


I assume your System Restore, in System Properties, System Protection isn't enabled/on. Use this procedure to turn on: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Turn-System-Restore-on-or-off for future use. Also you may want to do a Disk Clean to free-up disk space for future System Restore space, if necessary. Use CCLEANER freeware at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This freeware program has some very useful tools, Look at TOOLS, STARTUP, to disable ALL unnessary startup programs to speedup starts and running of your machine.

When i turn on the computer it goes to the windows loading screen and wont go past that, ive reset it, unplugged it , and it wont go past that screen The computer is a acer E2200 desktop and it runs on...


Have you tried booting into Safe Mode? You can do this by pressing/tapping the 'F8' key after the bios screen (Acer Screen) comes up. If it does you boot correctly then, you can try to restore the system to an earlier date using System Restore. That's located in the start menu/windows orb at All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore

I just turned my computer back on and it says disk boot error and wont get past that. Ant help would be great!


Your Windows installation on your computer has become corrupted, you may want to try to recover your personal information, a technician will be able to do this. It might be possible to repair windows by way of the windows disk. However it mostly comes down to formatting the hard drive using file system NTFS and reinstalling your Windows operating system.
All the best, thumbs up!

For this you dont need to buy another computer.

2. In safeboot.
Go to control pannel and choose option Show windows updates. else they may also be visible by default.

4. after you find the system is turned up completely.
close the opened window without touching anything.
5. give the system a complete shutdown.
6. reboot.
7. System may say " System has recovered after a serious error"


Still if it does not works.

1.insert the OS disk.
2. choose to follow wizard seriously reading each step.
3. It will ask you ro repair your OS.
Choose this option.
4. let the system recover (The process is slow; may take 30 mins or more)

How do I reboot it? Compaq 5716 runs very slow Can't download anything paid for interent and the computer just freezes. I want to do a system restore where there is nothing on the computer like brand new.


There are different ways on how to reboot a computer. If your laptop is not operational like it's frozen or crashed with the mouse frozen, try the simple steps below:

1. The custom way to reboot your computer is to press and hold the power button until it shuts off. Then press the power again if you want to turn it back on.

2. If your computer is functional and you just want to reboot/restart it, click on Start then click on Turn Off and select Restart. It will restart your computer.

3. If you can't click on the Start button but your mouse is still functional, you can simply press the Ctrl + Alt + Del button on your keyboard to bring up the Task Manager. Then on the Task Manager window, click on Shutdown tab, then choose Restart.

4. If your computer wont turn off no matter what you do, like holding the power button and the steps above, try to unplug the power cable for few minutes then plug it back in. Try to turn on the computer again.

System Restore

Click on START > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

When you do System Restore, this feature will restore your computer's settings back to its normal or functional condition. You can just choose an earlier date where it was working fine. The good thing about system restore is it wont delete your recent saved files and data.

If you really want a clean hard drive/system like what you said (brand new), reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows Operating System is what you need. You need your Windows installation CD to do it. Click on the links below on how to reinstall your Windows Operating System.

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.

Sony Vaio PCV-RS710G wont start up


one of the files in the system32 directory in the windows folder is corrupt, the files in the system32 folder contains vital files for the boot procedure, try to start the machine in "safe mode" by pressing F8 after the sony boot screen, if it allows you into the operating system you will need to choose "system Restore" take the time back to at least a week before your problems started DO NOT CREATE A RESTORE POINT

can you boot in safe mode?
press F8 when the windows in starting up when you see the option then see if you can do a system restore to a few days before the problem started. if it works run your antivirus to see if your were infected.
system restore can be found under start/programs/accessories/system tools.
