The C0000221 error indicates a problem with the Windows File system.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314474

This can often be caused by a failing hard drive. If your system has built in diagnostics (F12 at boot on many systems) you may be able to run a diagnostic there.

My aleinware desktop comes up with a black screen asking for a boot device and it wont go any further


According to the issue you've got, the following tips may be available to you.1.An efficiency troubleshooting step on hardware is to start your computer with the minimum hardware necessary to run the operating system. If your computer starts successfully it proves that one of the removed hardware devices was the cause of the STOP message. Otherwise move to the next solution.
2.Boot your computer in Safe Mode by pressing F8 at startup. Then go to My Computer and right-click on Disk C to select Properties from the dropdown menu. From the Tools tab, perform an error check and disk cleaning. 3.If the about two solutions doesn't work, the last one I can suggest to you is to create a bootable disk. It is the most quick and effective way for you to solve the problem. You just need to download a software can be used to burn your CD/usb into a bootable one and then boot your computer from it. Run the software to fix the issue after that. There are few free software for you to use, so if you want to take this solution money is indispensable. Windows Boot Genius owns a better cost/performance among such kinds of software I've used. It may be a good choice for you if you have money to pay.
By the way,reinstall your operating system can also help you out if nothing important stores in it.

My monitor says out of range


You have set the resolution or refresh rate of your display adapter to a value which is too high than what is supported by your monitor.
In order to fix this, you have to do the following:
1. Reboot your computer & press F8 to boot into Safe Mode.
2. Once in Safe Mode, open Device Manager.
3. Remove the display adapter device driver form Device Manager.
4. Reboot your computer again. Windows will boot up normally & will detect the display adapter. It will prompt you for the device driver for the display adapter.
5. Use the CD that came with your display adapter to install the device driver. Once done, your problem is fixed.

Can't get Vista to restart


Start windows, befor Ram loads hit F8 / F9 / F11 so u can acces to Boot Menu
then Hit Safe Mode it will loads windows but with restricted opcions then go to Start menu --> execut or Go
and then type CHKDSK and reboot
if it doesnt work ull have to restore your system
ull have to boot on safe mode and do this it will work 100/100

1.
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
2.
In the System Properties dialog box, on the System Restore tab, use the slider to increase the allocated disk space, and then click OK.
If you're using more than one drive on your system, follow these steps:
1.
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
2.
Click the drive you want to monitor, and then click Settings.
3.
In the Settings dialog box, shown in Figure 1, use the slider to increase the disk space, and then click OK twice.
sysrest1.gif
Figure 1
Notice that the disk space allocated to System Restore cannot exceed 12%. If you need more space, you can run the Disk Cleanup utility to reclaim space. To open Disk Cleanup:
• Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.
arrow_px_up.gifTop of page Before You Try System RestoreSystemRestore should only be used after trying less comprehensive methods oftroubleshooting. System Restore changes many files and registryentries, and in some cases might replace more files than you wantrestored. So when I first run into a computer problem, I reboot mycomputer. I'm still amazed at how often a problem is solved by usingthis simple technique. Or, if your computer won't start in normal mode,reboot your computer, press F8 during the boot process, use the arrowkeys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
Other troubleshooting techniques that often work are listed below.
Run problem applications in Compatibility Mode if system instability occurs after installing a particular application. To run the Program Compatibility Wizard:
• Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Program Compatibility Wizard.
Use Add or Remove Programsto uninstall a problem application if the system instability hasoccurred immediately after a new application has been installed andrunning the program in Compatibility Mode hasn't helped. AlthoughSystem Restore will remove the application if you choose to apply it,it is better to remove the offending application from Control Panel. Toopen Add or Remove Programs:
1.
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
2.
Click the program you want to remove, and then click Change/Remove.
If the system's instability has occurred immediately after a new device driver is installed, use the Device Driver Rollback feature instead of System Restore. To roll back to an earlier driver:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.
3.
In the Device Manager dialog box, double-click the hardware that uses the driver in question.
4.
In the device Properties dialog box, on the Driver tab, click Roll Back Driver.
See Charlie Russel's columns, Device Driver Rollback Beats BSOD and Finding Compatible Device Drivers for Windows XP, and Paul McFedries' column, Troubleshoot Device Driver Problems, for more information about device drivers.
Work through the Windows XP troubleshooters in the Help and Support Center. To open a troubleshooter:
1.
Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
2.
Under Pick a Help topic, click Fixing a Problem.
3.
Under Troubleshooting problems in the right pane, click List of troubleshooters, and then start a troubleshooter by clicking the name in the left column of the table.
If,after trying these options the computer is still unstable, opt forSystem Restore. You'll want to save this option for last because thechanges made to your computer are more comprehensive than if you simplyuninstall a program or rollback a device driver.
Use System RestoreAfteryou've decided to use System Restore to revert your system to aprevious state, start the System Restore Wizard and follow the prompts.To use the System Restore Wizard, make sure you're logged on as anadministrator, and then follow these steps:
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.
