Won't Boot Up, Alternates between Windows screen and TMobile screen

Hi,

I've had the TMobile Dash for several weeks. Today it will not boot up when I turn it on. It just alternates between the TMobile screen and the Windows screen.

I tried one of the posted suggestions - to press a certain two keys at once when powering it on, etc., but that didn't help.

Thanks for your suggestions

Master repoot the phone. You will loose all data, but you can recover the phone.

1. PRESS AND HOLD BOTH SOFT KEYS.
2. WHILE HOLDING DOWN SOFT KEYS, PRESS AND RELEASE THE POWER BUTTON, WAIT 3-5 SEC. (PHONE SHOULD POWER ITSELF ON BY DOING THIS)
3. RELEASE THE TWO KEYS SOFT KEYS.
4. WHEN SCREEN ON DASH LOOKS LIKE IT'S IN DOS FORMAT, PRESS SEND (GREEN ANSWER KEY)

Found this here. Seems to work, and you won't lose your data!

"Clear the Internet Cache. Follow the steps given below and it will fix problem.

1) Remove the SIM card from Dash and then start the phone.

2) Open up Internet Explorer and go to Menu -- > Tools --> Settings --> Memory

3) Clear all three items. If the Cache size is large (1MB or more), it will take long time to clear it so please wait.

4) Turn off the phone and put back SIM card.

5) Turn on the phone and it will start just fine.

Computer won't boot stuck in Error RecoveryScreen won't go any further


You should be able to do a clean install of Windows. Just insert the installation disc and press any key when indicated. Optical drive needs to be the first boot option. Go into BIOS and change it is not.
As for disc, you have to use the same Windows version as indicated on the MS Product Key sticker, because of the serial number.

Haveing problems with hp notebook 1100 boot mgr missing error while initializing NIC


Hi There,
I'm having trouble understanding what you mean by this - are you attempting to boot from LAN? Are you able to boot into windows at all?
What it sounds like is that your computer is either missing a boot manager, or you've assigned (in the bios) LAN boot as the priority boot device.
If that's the case, you can change the boot device priority back to internal hard disk in your BIOS (pressing F2 or F10 at startup splash screen)
If you're missing a boot manager for a windows installation, you can insert your windows installation disk and select "repair an existing installation" to repair your boot manager

My hp dv5215us laptop monitor broke several months ago. I've been using the computer with an external monitor plugged in to the vga port, but I turned it on today and the external monitor isn't...


Hardware failure of the motherboard - most likely something went wrong with the northbridge.
The repair will cost way more than it's worth, this laptop is effectively dead, time for a new one

Windows wont start up when computer is turned on, at the bottom of the screen, it just says press f for set up or tab for bios memo, then the screen will be blank with just a cursor blinking


If you are interested in solving the problem more easily and quickly. I think you can try this computer boot up suite, a boot CD and several other data rescue tools that help get your PC going even if Windows won't start or computer won't boot up at all.

My computer won't turn on, it just has a blinking dash on the left hand side I've tried turning it off and on multiple times and nothing will work I have an assigment due at the end of this week...


while the computer is turning on push the escape key and try selecting the harddrive
if it doesn't start to boot into windows then your boot record is probably corrupt you can try fixing it by running chkdsk /r on your OEM reinstall disc that came with the computer, seeing as you have a netbook you will need a external cd rom

When my wow pad boots up it goes thru the infotec screen to a lite blue screen it cannot find E:/ to restore or anything it just stays on the blue screen.


Hi, maybe you can take a try of this rescue program called BootSuite. I came across similar blue screen situaiton on my HP laptop (win 7) and it helped me get rid of it and rescued my data back. It is an awesome toolkit that includes a boot CD and several other data rescue tools that help get your PC going even if Windows won't start or computer won't boot up at all. Good luck.

Dash stuck on opening TMobile screen


The Windows Mobile installation may be corrupted.
The only way to fix that problem is by re-installing the windows software on the phone.
You can get the software for the T-mobile dash at the following link: http://www.t-mobile.com/wmupgrade/
Be warned that if you use this method most of the data on the phone will be lost, like text messages and etc. Your contacts should be fine as the are stored on the SIM Card and if you have been syncing your contacts with your PC then they should get loaded when you do the up
