Question about Dell Dimension 2300 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Will not boot up

I get a screen that asks for safe boot, normal, etc & I have selected each & it comes back to this screen. It all began when the NEC dvd recorder/player showed a code 12 & I went to the Microsoft site & they mentioned a debug procedure through the boot.ini. This created this last issue. So now I can't boot up & dont know what to do about the dvd

My acer t180 won't start up in normal mode i have just intalled the new norton onto it i have 1gb of ram but it starts in safemode....do i need more ram.....?


1. You may have to go into "safe mode" 1st and then start you pc in normal mode.
2. if you have a virus you may not be able to recover with the Norton anti virus.
3. There is a free software that you can try called "Ccleaner" this may restore you to the boot screen. A google search will find the site.
4. You may have to "format" the drive and reinstall your Operating System.
I hope this helps.

Safe mode


Get windows 7, or downgrade to xp. lol kidding. During the start up, i beleve its either f11 or f12 press them it should bring you to a boot screen. follow option. or you can use the compaqs built in recovery system. reinstall your system. vista has a option to save its old files for transfer.

do you have a wired or wireless mouse?
Have you tried attaching a different mouse to your computer?
What is the brand name of your mouse?

Try booting your computer in Safe Mode. To do this, after turning on the computer, press F8 button several times. You will see a screen that will ask you to boot normally, boot in Safe Mode or boot in Safe Mode with Network Connections. Select Safe Mode.

See if your mouse works then.

Check back with me for further help, if needed. There are additional things you could try.

How to start in safe mode


Windows XP and Vista

Using the F8 Method:
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Advanced Options menu.
  3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
  4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
  5. Do whatever tasks you require and when you are done reboot to boot back into normal mode.

You should opt Safe Mode:
  • On the black screen just navigate throug up and down arrow keys.
  • Goto Safe Mode and press enter.
  • It will boot your system in safe mode.
If the boot is success full:
  • try to remember any software or hardware you recently installed/change. Then remove/uninstall that software/hardware. Also remove some device driver like Video/Audio driver and make re-start. and try to normal boot. If success then install your audio/video.
If no success then I think its time to re-install your windows.
Please post your feed-back.
