Windows 7 won't bootup, has error recovery. it loads files then nothing. screen is black.


Had that problem a few times myself.
Only way I could fix was to restore back to factory condition.
As you boot, watch bottom of screen closely.
depending on system, Should need to press F2, F10, possibly F12, might even be Del.
Most likely you didn't get restore disk, or have made one.
If you do, insert disk before boot up. System should boot to DvD.
Don't forget once restored to update.
Hope this helps
Don

Laptop running slow or unable to download from the internet


If you are experiencing slow computer response or are unable to download from the internet (especially anti-virus software), you are most likely infected with mal-ware (malicious software). This can occur by landing on nefarious websites and clicking on an area that secretly installs some code on your computer. Here's a generic correction you might want to try to regain control of your computer and send those mal-ware programs to the etherworld.

First, you'll need to go to an uninfected computer and go to www.downloads.com (This is a C-Net sponsored site and should be safe to download from). In the search on the site, type in MalwareBytes. This is an excellent free program that does a wonderful job of getting rid of most of the mal-ware out there. Download the program onto a USB drive or burn it to a CD.

Now, you'll want to boot up the infected computer into safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly when starting the computer until you are presented with a boot menu). When you get the boot menu, select Safe Mode with Networking. Once in Safe Mode, you'll want to install the malwarebytes program you just downloaded. Install and run the software (allowing it to update if it can). The software will detect and remove most of your problems (especially if it was able to update). Be sure to have the software delete all infections once it is done.

Now, reboot the computer normally and run a full scan with MalwareBytes again (if it was unable to update because malware was blocking it, update it first). Remove all infections (if any) again and reboot.

You'll probably notice a dramatic difference in the performance of your PC once you've accomplished this task. If you found the program useful, consider purchasing it (I'm not affiliated with the program in anyway, I've just found it quite useful and would like to see it continue to be supported).

There are other good programs out there as well, just be careful as there are several scams that claim to be anti-virus and anti-spyware programs that only cost you and install malware themselves.

One of the drivers or programs that is set to launch during boot is corrupted. You will have to find out which and uninstall / upgrade it.
Boot in Safe Mode, click Start, Click Run and type msconfig and hit enter - the startup management window will launch. Click on the Startup tab and untick all the programs in there. Now reboot. If you get the same error then the problem is with a driver - uninstall them all then download the latest versions from the Acer Support site and install them one by one. If the problem is fixed then one of the programs is corrupted - open msconfig / Startup again and tick one program at a time with reboot until the problem returns: uninstal that program.

Having a problem with dimension 3000 destop. I turn on the computer and it will proceed to the XP loading screen then the picture will go black and won't return. Using AOC 23inch monitor.


A critical file needed for the launch of XP is missing. To see it can be recovered try to boot in Safe Mode. If you can the reinstall all the drivers and check every program for errors - launch them and see how they behave. If you can't boot in Safe Mode the the only thing left is to reinstall.

A program that is set to launch at boot is corrupted and crashes Windows.
Since troubleshooting the boot programs is a complicated job, you should go the sure way: reinstall Windows. Once that is done reload the programs one at a time.

If you can boot to safe mode, try doing a restore.

When you turn on the system, just past the POST (before windows loads), hit the F8 key to get the menu between normal boot and safe mode.

When prompted, select SAFE MODE. Don't select safe mode with command prompt, or with networking. Just SAFE MODE.

Use the arrow keys to select SAFE MODE. If you need to log in, do so and proceed to launch windows.

Windows should launch in Safe mode. If it does, proceed to click on START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, SYSTEM TOOLS, SYSTEM RESTORE.

Select RESTORE MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER TIME. Click on NEXT. If you can, select a BOLD date preferably before your issue. Click NEXT. System will load some files, reboot and reload.

If you can't get to safe mode, there may be other problems holding your system up. Did you load anything prior to the messages?
