PC not booting!

Hi, my PC will not boot. Can get in Bios setup and system start mode (F5) but as soon as I try starting up in safe mode or any other it just sits there! I have tried starting up with boot disk but that too does not work. Any ideas?

How to turn off safety mode


Hi,

Don't want to be offensive but that's called Safe Mode.

If you are able to load your OS in normal mode then you need to access "System Management Utility".

Press Win+R -> type "msconfig" in run box then click ok, in the new window go to boot option at the top and select safe boot.

In case you cannot load the OS in the normal mode then you need tap either F8 or F5 (function keys) repeatedly once you get the bios screen on the start up.

How to start in safe mode?


While the computer is initially booting up, press F8 (repeatedly if necessary), you should be presented with a selection screen to boot into safe mode (various levels such as with or without networking) or to boot normally. The F8 key only works while the computer is going through the BIOS startup procedure.

Operating system not found


1.Try restarting the computer in safe mode, keep tapping the F8 key as soon as you restart the computer and then from the advance boot options select the safe mode option to boot the computer to safe mode.
2. If the computer boots to safe mode perform a system restore.
3. If issue persists, reset the BIOS to defaults and then try again.
4. Verify if the hard is detected and listed in the BIOS setup. (press F2 at startup to enter BIOS).
5. If hard drive is detected and listed with its capacity such as 300/5oo GB, then, perform system recovery using the F10 recovery partition.
6. Restart the computer and start tapping the F10 key immediately to enter the system recovery partition, then, select the Rescue data option to backup the data from computer if any available or select the restore C drive option to perform system recovery and restore computer to factory settings.
You can also perform a memory diagnostics before performing the recovery.

If the hard drive is not listed in BIOS with its capacity, contact Sony service team to get the hard drive replaced.
If the computer is brand new, you can try exchanging the notebook with a new one.

Hi, Suddenly my lap top got powered off and when i am trying to log in it was asking to choose in which mode it has to go.. like safe mode or windows to start normally.. etc..when i am trying to boot os...


This is cause by deletion or correption of System files (In most cases VIRUSES), Try to reinstall Operating System from authorised service centre or you can do it (Risky)

You can format and reinstall OS(xp,vista,win 7,linux) .
Restart computer when booting goes on press F5 Or DEL key to goto bios setup menu change boot order to first cd drive then hdd
PressF10 and press Y and enter.
computer will restart
Insert Xp cd.
Press enter to boot from cd
Follow the instructions
Then your problem will solve.

Dell optiplex 760 won't go into safe mode


It sounds as though your PF keys are disabled by the BIOS settings. Try this:
Upon cold start or reboot get to the BIOS setup. You may have to press F2 or delete, or whatever key the first POST messages instruct you to use. Different BIOS manufacturers use different keys, and you have to be quick to interrupt the boot process using the correct key. If you fail to determine what key it is, reboot once again, until you see/read what key does the job.
Next, once you're into the setup screens, look for a section where you can set/deny access to the F8, F9, F10 etc keys during the boot process.
Make sure you ENABLE them, following the instructions on what keys to use to set/reset these choices. Make sure you SAVE AND EXIT.
On the next reboot, upon the disappearance of all POST messages, make sure you press the F8 key repeatedly until you see your OS boot options menu, among which you'll find Safe Mode.
Good luck!

Setup to boot from CD


Hi there.
To change the boot order to the CD drive you will need to access the bios, to do this you will need to restart the pc and hit either Esc or Del as the pc starts up, once in the bios change the boot order to the CD drive as the first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and boot from the CD drive.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

System freezes on boot up


hi there,

did your system to press F1 to continue. not try to go on BIOS setup. on booting process press F2 or Delete tab. and then click on safe mode if the booting will continue to run. come up a confirmation if you continue in safe mode click yes. and then work on that system for a couple of minutes, and then restart you pc.

you have too many start up programs. that why it will freeze during start up.

On my screen, I have "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt" Windown/System32/Config/System. You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup...


Try to boot in safe mode by pressing F8 while the system is booting.

Once in safe mode, use system restore to restore your computer state to an earlier date when this problem was not present.

Thanks

Computer Lock Down


Force your computer to start in Safe Mode. To do that, hold down the F5 key when you start up and keep holding it until you see that your PC has booted to Safe Mode. (Another way to do this is to hold down the F8 key during boot time until you’re presented with the Windows Startup Menu and then choose Safe Mode from the list of options presented there.

When you’re in Safe Mode Windows skips the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files and loads a minimal set of drivers that lets your PC function at a basic level. Then do a systme restore while on safe mode......

Hope that helps..........
