My boot devices are disabled


Hi

Normally for Pcs and laptops the booting devices can be found in the CMOS/BIOS settings, when you start up the pc/laptop you normally press esc f1 f2 etc, this allows the user to enter into the CMOS/BIOS setting.

Under the Boot tab you will see all the devices you boot from they will be enable/on or disabled/off check them to see which devices are on and off.

The last tab has a load default option if you select it and exit and save these changes it will automatically enable all the default devices in order.

Your pc/laptop should boot up normally now

Cheers

My computer screen went completely white. I have a Dell flatscreen monitor


This issue occurs due to various reasons. However, in this case it might be due to corrupt BIOS settings. To resolve this issue I recommend you to visit the following website to download and install the BIOS Update:

===Installation Instructions ===

1. Download the BIOS update. (from Dell website)
2. Double-click the BIOS update icon, and then click NEXT.
3. Accept the license terms, and then click NEXT.
4. If an Overwrite Protection message appears, click YES TO ALL.
5. Click OK at the Windows Based BIOS Update window.
6. Click YES at the next Windows Based BIOS Update window, and then wait for the update to complete.
7. At the Windows Based BIOS Update window, click YES to restart your PC.
8. If you see the following message during the restart of your PC, continue with the remaining steps; otherwise you are done with the update.

Default BIOS settings have been loaded due to BIOS update or checksum issue.
Press to enter Setup. Otherwise, allow the PC to continue.

9. Press and hold F1 for a few seconds to open the BIOS Setup.
10. Press F5 for a few seconds, choose YES, and then press Enter to load the BIOS defaults. (Use the arrow keys to choose YES, if necessary.)
11. Press F10 for a few seconds, choose YES, and then press Enter to exit the BIOS Setup and save your changes. (Use the arrow keys to choose YES, if necessary.)
12. Press Enter to confirm the save.
13. If you see a System Settings Change message prompting you to restart your PC, click YES to restart the PC again.

Also use a sytem utility software RegInOut -- a System Utilities program that includes several features which allows the PC users to speedup their computer performance. It improves system performance by removing junk files and fixing registry errors. Its additional feature of
Internet Optimizer enhance users web browsing experience.

My Compaq sr1800nx desktop boots to a black screen with white text with the options of F1 setup or F2 continue instead of the normal boot up. If I select F2 it will continue and boot up normally.


Sounds like you have to open task manager. probably threw ctrl+del keys together. then once the task manager is open you have the option of typing explorer.exe

once the windows desktop apears go to start then run and type chkdsk c: /R this will recover bad files that are possibly missing from the boot volume. the issue happens when software tries to alter the master boot record where windows load's the operating files off of the main drive root partition. hope this helps you.
Good Luck

Right off the bat when I power up my HP Intel Pentum 4 3.2 mhz processor (with Hyper Threading and XP OS SP3 and the LCD monitor and an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 with up to 128MB shared...


Reboot the machine and when you see the HP flash screen, tap the key that gets you into the setup or BIOS screen. This could be F2 or the escape key, just watch for it. Once you get into the BIOS pages, go to the last page and look for the text "Reset Default Settings" or something to that effect. Click to reset defaults and answer yes if it asks if you are sure, then tap on the F10 key and click yes to exit and reboot. Restart Windows normally.....if there is still a problem, reboot and tap the F8 key when you see the HP screen. Choose "Safe Mode with Networking", this will load safe mode and minimal settings and drivers but will give you internet access to get help for resetting safe mode through the control panel.

My computer won't start up or get passed the boot up stage


If its the screen I am thinking, it may be because it cannot detect the Hard Driive, so no windows files to load.

- Reboot
- Enter the BIOS menu (usually F1, but think F2 on Dell;s)
- Click on the summary page, under IDE or HD can you see a label with a size e.g. HD1 800000 or does it say none - you can also see other devices from the suammry such as CD ROM ..etc Can you see all thse correctly?
- If not seeing the Hard drive you will need to remove the PC cover and check the IDE/SATA connectors are firmly in, in your harddrive and the other end to the mother board (could of come loose). If they are, there are still more things that can be don - but let us know if this is what you are experiencing first.

Monitor keeps hibernating, can't make it stop, pixel issue.


Hey,

I think this is more of a problem on your computer instead of the monitor, ofcourse you could try another monitor and see if the same happens. I suspect your computer goes into standby or hibernation on its own, and it does work fine if you reset the computer right?

if you go into power management again, disable or turn off hibernation completely, its on one of the pages.
Make sure its not set to standby, and also disable your screen saver.

Right click on desktop - properties - then screensaver. turn it to none.

Also you could look into the computer bios and make sure its not set to standby or hibernation from there. thats unlikely but you could check.

how to get into bios.. depends on the computer, right when you turn it on, on one of the corners of the screen you will get a message, press button to enter setup or bios. press that to enter bios when its presented.

look around the bios and poweroptions.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Computer loading/splash screen pixilated and distorted


if you can, hook the computer up to a different monitor and see if it does the same thing. It sounds like it is an issue with your monitor initalizing but the reboot can complicate things. Also if you have a cd that came with the computer you might want to put it in and see if you can re-install your video drivers. One last thing is to check and see if the reboot might have changed some of the settings on the monitor itself. See if you can reset to factory default or an auto adjust. It depends on the kind of monitor as to wich option you can do

The PC has been set to use an invalid display resolution,

to rectify this boot PC into safe mode, right click on the desktop (not on an icon) select properties
select the tab for settings, and choose the display resolution 640x480,

then reboot pc into normal mode, then using the same process above , select a more appropriate resolution for your display (remembering to also turn up the colour setting to at least 32 bit)

Can't get pass the background screen when pc load


The sequence is:
a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed,
b) the screen will go black,
c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off,
e) wait a few seconds,
f) then turn the machine back on.
g) The bios splash screen is displayed,
h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others.
g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine.
g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.

PC or monitor, signal problems


your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.
