While we wait for more details you may try this:

1 Power off the computer
2 Power it on and press F8 repeatedly while it is booting
3 You will see a list of boot options; choose "last known good configuration" and press enter.
4 It should then boot normally... if it does,
5 Do a system restore (if your version of windows supports that) to an earlier date when your computer worked perfectly.

If that doesn't solve it, restart the process and when you get to number 3, choose "safe mode"
4. After a successful boot, disable all the startup programs that you can do without there. To do this, use regedit or msconfig depending on your windows version. Be careful when using regedit.
5 Reboot and see. Hope these help.

Meanwhile, it would help a lot to post more details.

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

I have a toshiba protege 7100 series and it won't boot past the windows screen


Try hitting F8 during startup and choose last known good configuration.
Or you could try starting in safe mode and doing a system restore.
Have you made any changes to the system prior to this problem, as sometimes installing programs/drivers can cause similar issues. If so you will need to remove or configure the program causing the conflict. You can do this in safe mode.

Motherboard won't boot past cmos


you are pretty much right it may be a corrupt bios, however before we come to a conclusion try isolating both Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm 80gig ide hard drive and optical drive only and then see if it at least goes past the bios screen, if yes then the bios is ok and just needs to be resetted to defaults. dont expect it to load windows even if it goes past bios check as hard disk which helps to boot to windows would be removed. also in case if you are using 2 ram slots try connecting only 1 ram chip in 1 slot and then see if it goes past the bios test screen. do reply with results. Good luck.

Not able to boot press F12 lauch startup repair (30 second) I have to wait keyboard not responding then windows is loading files and start bipping error


first, recover your files. You will need to use something like this data recovery program.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/290956907592436?sk=info

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

See if this works otherwise you will have to reload the Operating System in your system.
Switch
ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

1. Open the Start Menu.

A) Click on All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Restore.


2. Open the Control Panel (All Items View).

A) Click on the Recovery icon.
B) Click on the Open System Restore button.


A 'System Restore' window will appear. Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time'


A) Click on the Next button


Now you will find a window with Dates, Description and Type,

Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start. Click on the Finish button and windows will take a reboot.

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.
