Question about Computers & Internet

3 Answers

The newer laptop we have is locking up for some odd reason, with a blue screen - then shutdown/auto-reboot to a Windows Error Recovery black screen to choose Safe Mode - etc, etc, the System Restore that was set to over a month ago does not even restore the computer to operating normally. Going online - a bunch of other Gateway owners are having the same issue.... is this a well timed - "We're unhappy with Acer's benefit package" conspiracy, or is there a logical explanation? Please help before I turn this hunk of plastic into a Walmart employee enema............. Thank you.

If it is still under warranty, I would not attempt anything, just take it back, if not, let me know and I will see what you can try.

good luck

Pc keep rebooting at windows screen when turned on


Did you install any hardware or windows updates? The reason its restarting is its getting a blue screen error but its setup to restart on error so its happening so fast you dont get to see the error..... Try hitting F8 right after the boot screen to get some windows options and try to enter into safemode.... If you can odds are its related to a windows update or something newly installed

Hp Presario 2000 will not get to windows sign in


Do you see an error message on the screen or, does it blue screen with an error message? When you boot up press F6 just as the PC drops out of BIOS mode. Select "Last Known Good Configuration". If that doesn't fix it, look up the error code on the blue screen with Google. Most blue screens are fixable. Some require a complete rebuild of your hard drive.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

Igxprd32 error


To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Blue screen


Hi, you have two options.
1. use the recovery disc to reinstall. This will erase all the data.
2. try BootSuite, burn a boot CD to enter your black screen windows and rescue data first of all and fix the error yourself.

It is your choice. Best regards.

For solving blue screen error


HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Description
Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
Solution
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)
