It won't boot up

My laptop turns on and shows a screen that asks if I would like to start it in safe mode or normal. I have picked every option it gives me but the screen turns black and won't start up.

    Try pulling any discs out of the disc drive then shut down the computer. Then pull out the battery and unplug the laptop. Let it sit for a few min then try booting it up again. It may just need a few moments to refresh from a hard shut down. Let me know what happens.

My dell inspiron 1454 keeps looping on the boot up screen, then just goes back to the windows has filed to start screen..


Hi Charlotte,

The video doesn't show what you describe. The video shows that Windows is loading. Try booting in safe mode. Here's how:

Power up the machine. When the Dell logo appears, start tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears amd choose "Windows Safe Mode." Once windows starts, backup your data just in case. Then try to determine what it was you did last that may have caused the problem. Then try to start normally.

Hope this helps

Hello, I own a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ230e laptop and it won't boot up. It froze this morning and I had to initiate a hard reboot. Since then I have been given the option to boot up in Safe mode or Normal...


First of all, get your WinXP CD handy, then go to Start>Run and type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. That'll replace any missing or corrupt system files.

My laptop wont come on a screen keeps coming up asking to repair or start windows normally i have tried both without success


When was the last time you were able to use your computer?
Did you installed any software recently in your computer?
Try pressing F8 on startup and use the Last Known Good Configuration. May be that will help.

hi blinkgirl556

was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.

hope this helps

When I boot up my laptop, it asks me 4 options. Start windows normally, safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, and safe mode with network support. It doesn't matter which one I pick, but when the laptop...


To start your computer normally you must choose either of that options but the only thing you must choose is the start windows normally so that all the settings from the previous working settings will be applied in your windows start up.

When it asks you to start windows in normal, there is also an option for Safe Mode. Select safe mode and boot. Once you have booted in safe mode, you can reboot and let it boot normally (it will not ask now).
