When you boot your pc, hit F8 several times. You should see a boot option list. Fyrst try the option last known good configuration. If that doesn't work. reboot and hit F8 to get the list again but this time try safe mode. After you hit enter to try safe mode hold down both <ctrl> keys for a couple of seconds. If it boots into safe mode, try a system restore. Go to Start>programs>accessories>systrm tools>system restore. Choose a date a few days back. If any of these work, go to your command prompy. Go start>run> and type cmd. Then type chkdsk /f There's a space between the k and the slash. It will tell you it can't run right now do you wan't it run the next time you start your system? Enter y. Exit the box, then reboot. If it reboots successfully, do a complete virus scan. If this fixes your problem please rate as fixed. If not, don't rate yet. Add a commrnt and let me know what happened and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.

(A)Can't login in as admin,guest only, tried safe mode no success (B)Recovery problem:error code 2


Try logging in as administrator in safe mode if you have not tried that already. Some of the newer spyware/malware has been disabling admin accounts and wiping out recovery points. I battled some spyware last week like that.
When you get into safe mode are you only getting in as a guest or are you able to get in as another user?
Let us know how it goes.

New laptop delivered yesterday,hp dv6000 it will let me get into the password window but after that nothing!


Hello Homecontrols,

Sometimes this issue occurs when there are many startup items.

However try the following steps if you are able to login into safemode:

Here are the steps to login into safemode:

1. Restart the computer. Keep tapping F8 key at the Compaq Logo repeatedly.
2. You should see a menu, choose Safe Mode from the Advanced options menu, and press Enter.
3. You should see Windows Entering into Safe Mode, with Safe Mode written on all four corners of the Screen.

After loging into safe mode perform the following steps:

1. Hold the windows key and press 'R' -> Type msconfig -> Click Ok
2. Click on Services tab, check the box next to "Hide all Micrsoft services" then clickon disable all.
3. After that click on Startup tab and click on disable all.
4. Click on apply and ok. Then restart the notebook into normal mode.

Let me know after trying the above steps.
