Hi,

A number of possibilities:
1. the files needed to run Windows are either corrupt or missing;
2. driver error particularly with the video card;
3. virus infection;
4. hardware fault.

A temporary remedy is try to boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 even before the Windows logo appears. On powerup, keep pressing F8 after the BIOS/CMOS display (POST).

Thereafter pls post back if Windows will boot in Safe Mode and we can work out other ways to restore Windows to normal operation.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    i. Recovery CDs that came with the e-Machine; and/or
    ii. an OEM version of what Windows you are running.

Tip

Fixing 'Out of range', 'Format not supported' message


When the video card signal exceeds the frequency allowed for the monitor, the following error message may occur:
Sync out of Range, Out of range, Format not supported
SOLUTION (FROM HP):
To avoid the message, lower the resolution or vertical frequency of the video card.
Reboot the system and use the VGA mode to force the video card driver to lower its resolution. Follow these steps.
1. Shut down and restart the system.
For consumer systems such as HP Pavilion desktop PCs, push the Power button once.
For commercial systems such as HP business desktop PCs, hold down the Power button for five seconds.
2. Immediately after seeing the HP/Compaq logo screen, press F8 at system startup to initiate the bootup menu.
3. Scroll down to highlight Enable VGA Mode , and press ENTER .
4. After Microsoft Windows completes its bootup process, access the Display Properties and select a desired resolution, which is compatible to the connected monitor. Reboot

POS X Evo TP1 A1N screen appears to be off, but power is on


first of all check your monitor. it would be the best if you can plug some other monitor just to check... if your monitor is OK then probably you VGA is bad and you`ll have to change it.

Disable safe mode


Which operating system and do you have Norton antivirus ???
Turn Off Safe Mode

You rebooted your PC at least 10 times now, and still it refuses to start in anything other than Safe Mode.
Your many attempts to perform a system restore have yet to be victorious. It just will not boot up normally.
According to Microsoft, if you have Norton Antivirus 2001 installed on your computer, it is the root of the problem. Microsoft suggests you disable it.

Restart your computer. Let it load completely in Safe Mode.
Press "Run" on your Start menu.
Once you see the Open box, enter into the provided text box: misconfig.
Then press "Enter" or Select "OK."
Select on the new dialog box that has appeared "Selective Startup."
Select "NAVAP.VxD" on the Static VxD tab.
Remove the check in the check box you now see.
Select "OK."
Remove the check in the check box next to Norton Auto Protect.
Select "OK."
Reboot your system and it will be in Normal Mode.
Turn Off Safe Mode in Windows XP
The purpose of booting your computer in safe mode is to resolve issues.
Only your basic, most dire drivers and programs will run to block viruses and surreptitious software from executing on your system.
But once the issue is resolved, you need to get back to the standard Windows mode. In order to turn off safe mode in Windows XP, you must go through the same steps that you took to turn it on.

Reboot your Windows system.
Press the "F8" key several times as soon as you see the first Windows XP logo appear on your screen as the computer is booting.
This will bring up a black screen that displays the "Windows Advanced Options Menu."
Press the down arrow button on your keyboard to scroll down the list.
Select "Start Windows Normally" and then hit "Enter."
Allow the system to boot.
Enter your Windows XP user password (if you set one) and log in as usual.

Help i have a dell inspiron 530s and all of a sudden my keyboard and mouse do not work on when the logo of windows comes on in start up nor the mouse or keyboard work but my keyboard works on f2 and f8...


Try restoring your system bios to factory default and this may fix your problem. If not- post again with results and we'll go from there.

Entering System Setup

Turn on your computer.

When the blue DELL logo is displayed watch for the F2 prompt to appear (black screen / white text).

Once this F2 prompt appears, immdiately press F2 .

The F2 prompt indicates that the keyboard has initialized and is detected. This prompt can appear very quickly. Watch for it to display as the screen powers up, and then press F2. If you press F2 before you are prompted, this keystroke will be lost. There is a small window of time to do this before Windows starts.
If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again to enter setup. At setup check your bios version. It may need to be flashed (upgraded). Select load factory defaults to see if that will resolve your PCI issues.

Pc has power but no response


Connect the video monitor to another working system to see if your monitor is the cause for your dilema.

If the computer logo appears when you first boot up, but it blanks out after the windows logo, then it would be an issue with your installation of windows and may be in need of a reload.

But again, if the monitor is completely black, I would test out the monitor on another machine.

Good Luck

Unable to restore computers original factory settings with Dells suggestion of control f11 when computer starts up


If you have already used the cd's to install the os, this will not work. there is another option which you can try.

Manual Reinstallation

Manual reinstallation can be the most time consuming and difficult method of those available. You will reinstall the operating system directly from the CD or DVD, install the drivers, configure the OS, install critical and recommended updates, install your applications and, if available, restore backed up data files. Time to Complete: 120+ Minutes.

1. Remove non-essential peripherals
like:
  • Scanner
  • Printer
  • Modem or Network cables
  • Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)
  • USB flash drive or other external Hard Drive
  • Any other external devices (e.g., USB-attached devices)
  • Remove the computer from the docking station, if you are using one.

  • Check to ensure that all your installation media is available. You will need the following:
  • The Dell™ Reinstallation CD for Microsoft® Windows® XP, or
  • The Dell™ Reinstallation DVD for Windows® Vista,

    • The Dell Resource CD/DVD,
    Reinstall the operating system from the OS Setup Disk.
    Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart your computer.
    and watch for the Dell logo to appear.
    When the Dell logo appears, press the <F12> key to load the Boot Menu. If the menu does not appear, restart the system and tap <F12> several times at the Dell logo screen.
    When the Boot Menu appears, highlight the CD/DVD drive (listed as "CDROM", "CD/DVD" or "CD/DVD/CD-RW") entry from the list and press <Enter>.
    If the message Press any key to boot from the CD... appears, press a key to continue booting to the CD.
    In the Windows XP Setup screen press <Enter> to set up Windows XP.
    In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, read the license agreement, and then press <Page Down> to scroll through the agreement.
    Press <F8> to accept the terms and conditions specified in the license agreement
    Highlight the largest partition and press <Enter>.
    If you are prompted to format the partition, use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Format the partition using the NTFS file system (Quick). Press <Enter> or <F>, if applicable, to format the partition. In cases where the drive must be checked for errors, select the Format the partition using the NTFS file system option.
    Setup will format the drive, if necessary, then copy the files needed for installation. This process can take several minutes. Once done, Windows will restart the computer to continue Setup from the hard drive.
    Note:
    Do not press any keys if the message Press any key to boot from the CD appears. The amount of time it takes to complete the above process varies,
    depending on the speed and size of the computer. (it may happen if the computer restarts during the process, just wait and watch)
    After the computer restarts, Setup continues with a graphical user interface (GUI) in the classic Windows theme. In this stage, you are asked to input information to personalize your installation. Your screen may blink several times during this process, which is normal. The information to input, and the order it is provided, is shown below:
    Click Next on the Regional and Language Options window.
    In the Personalize Your Software screen, type your name in the Name: field and your organization's name in the Organization: field, if applicable, and click Next.
    In the Computer Name screen, type the computer name in the Computer Name: field if you want to change it from the name provided. For Windows XP Professional Edition users, type a password in the Administrator Password: field and then type the same password in the Confirm Password: field.
    Click Next.
    Note:
    If the Modem Dialing Information screen appears follow the instructions below, otherwise continue on:
    In the Modem Dialing Information screen, click to select the correct country/region for the What Country/Region are you in now? box.
    Type your area code in the What area code (or city code) are you in now? box and the number in the If you dial a number to reach an outside line, what is it? box, if applicable.
    Click to select one of the items below for The phone system at this location uses: box:
    Tone dialing if your phone service uses tone dialing.
    Pulse dialing if your phone service uses pulse dialing.

    Click Next.
    In the Date and Time Settings screen, verify that the correct Date, Time, and Time Zone appear, and click Next.
    In the Networking Settings screen, click to select Typical, and click Next. If available, click Skip to skip the networking setup section. For Windows XP Professional users, click to select No, this computer is not on a network..., and click Next.
    Setup will finalize the installation and should complete within 30 minutes of this point. Once complete, the computer will restart.
    Note:
    If you see the message Press any key to boot from the CD when the computer restarts, do not press any keys on the keyboard.
    After the computer reboots, the newly installed operating system will attempt to configure itself for your detected devices, however many of your device drivers are not yet installed. Use the following to finish the configuration and prepare the computer for driver installation:
    If the Display Settings message appears, click OK.
    If a Monitor Settings message appears, click OK.
    In the Welcome to Microsoft Windows window, click Next.
    In the registration screen, click to select No, not at this time and click Next. You will be prompted to register your computer again later.
    In the Do you want to set up Internet access now? window, click to select No, not at this time and click Next.
    In the Who will use this computer? window, type the user name of your choice in the Your name: text box. Type the name of any additional Users that will be using the computer in the additional text boxes provided.
    Click Next to continue.
    Click Finish.

    Windows XP now starts for the first time and is ready for driver installation.

    First make sure all cables are tight and secured, and try pressing the Auto Button on your Syncmaster? It's for auto configuration.
