SOURCE: 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.

My acer desktop computer screen is black, the power says it is on but no pic, keeps cutting off, tried to back up and restore, cut off, says problem with windows and it shut off as well, HELP!


  • When the computer will not boot up, it sound like it is booting as the CPU fan is running and the lights are on. It also finds the CD ROM but it won't boot from a CD either.
  • Sometimes when you have a computer black screen on startup and the power switch light will be green and then turns to orange or amber. Everything is running.
  • Everything seems to be running but you can't see anything on the screen, not even a flashing cursor. Your black screen in Windows has occurred before the Windows logo screen:
  • 1- adapter or video card
  • 2-RAM
  • 3-and Black screen on startup with an amber flashing light
  • Not enough power getting to the motherboard.
  • A dead power supply.
  • A bent pin or shorted out USB port causing a problem.

I have this problem. My computer ACER ASPIRE ONE cant log in and i dont know what i have to do. The problem says: Check cable conection..! PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device -- insert...


It may be a problem with the hard disk drive. To check, try to boot to the BIOS. Turn the computer on and tap on F10 before the Acer splash screen. Once you are in the BIOS, check if there is any hard disk drive being detected by the computer. Look for any SATA device that will have a storage capacity. If it does not show such, then you have to replace the hard disk drive of your computer. Unfortunately, the data goes together with this device. It will be very expensive to retrieve it from a damaged hard disk.
If in case the hard drive is seen, then it is just an OS problem. The MBR is corrupted. To fix this issue you need to boot from the installation CD.
For XP: boot to the WinRC.
Tap on F12 on before the splash screen. You will have an option to boot from the CD. Load the WinXP CD and choose onboard or usb cd rom drive.
On the setup screen choose R to repair. The follow the prompts until you get a black screen.
On this black screen, type fixmbr then press on return. That should do it.
If it does not work, then you just need to have your Hard disk replaced.

If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

Computer


Get the discs that came with your computer and boot off them. When your computer is on the dell screen when you first turn it on it will say something like "hit f3 for boot menu". You need to hit the button it specifies and select your cd drive. It will say press any key to boot from cd, and as you may have already guessed you want to hit any key. Then when a windows screen comes on you need to hit r and follow the onscreen instructions from there.

heres some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Change the boot order so its CD ROM, optionally FLoppy drive here if your laptop has one of those, then Hard drive.

save and exit the bios, use the above link to get info on how to work the bios.

Test and see if the computer starts up normally, if not then you need to use the windows installation cd to install windows into the computer again.

if you get any errors or problems on installing windows let me know.
