If its a 1 time thing then the laptop wasnt shut down correctly the last time you used it. you can pick safe mode , press enter , let it get to the desktop and goto start button and pick shutdown. when you start it up again it should be fine.

if it goes to this every time and gets stuck in a loop you might need to reload windows

Laptop goes to the launch program and normal start up but when you launch any one the screen comes on and stays blank ?


See if screen is okay when booting to cmos or to safe mode. Can be spyware causing this. Should not affect cmos screen and may not affect safe mode screen (hit F8 repeatedly when booting to bring up safe mode choices). Run Malwarebytes in safe mode.

My laptop turns on normal goes to window and then shuts down


The is something wrong with the booting of the computer. Does it pass the initial BIOS boot screen? Try pressing F8 once every second after pressing the power button and see if you can boot the computer in safe mode.

Can you boot in a Safe Mode with no problem? If you can try to use System Restore to return Laptop to previous state. Go Start----->All Programs------>Accessories----->System Tools-----> System Restore It's easy to use and it may return your system to time when it worked properly. Good Luck!

Dont remember pass word for my laptop


if its xp:

Turn it off

turn it back on

before it starts to boot, press f8 repeatedly until the boot selection screen comes up

when it does, choose safe mode(the regular one)

when that loads pick the administrator account

if and when the admin account loads you can remove the other account's passwords...

if you dont remember the administrator account you are screwed, although there are disks that can recover the password, but I still cant get my hands on any of them.....

if its vista:

try the same thing, see if it works

Dell 1200 Inspiron OS boot problem


Two things you should try to resolve this issue: -

  • Check that the FN button on the keyboard to switch from the Laptop monitor to external monitor has not been enabled - these are usually 3 state switches (Laptop screen ON, External screen ON, Both ON) it is really easy to accidentally hit this without realizing.
  • If this works there is no need to try the second option.
OR
  • Try booting to safe mode - as the laptop boots up and you see the Bios summary screen depress the F8 button and you should receive a screen containing several options.
  • Select the option to Boot to safe mode.
  • If the laptop boots up ok then login to XP, don't be alarmed at the change in screen resolution.
  • Right-click My Computer on the desktop and select Properties - Hardware - Device manager
  • In the tree-view containing the different hardware select Display Adapters you should see your graphics card in there
  • Right-click and select Scan for Hardware Changes if it is ok the close and reboot as normal
  • If there is a problem here it implies the driver is somehow corrupted and may need re-installing from the disk that came with the laptop.

Hard Drive Issues most likely, Try booting to your Bios Setup utility Page...
Hold the f2 key (or delete key)(some are also f12)Check to see if your HD shows up in there, then reboot and hold the F8 key to try and get to the SAFE MODE options screen... there ya can boot it into safe mode if able to get to it..
