Have you tried checking if u got a floppy or cd inside?
If no, you should check the boot order, in setup.

But like 3 month's ago, a friend bought a laptop, and happened the same.
The problem was the bios.
So i went to bios setup and reset it to default.. Should work.

When a system is overclocked or some of the timings/options are set wrong this will happen. It may not apply to your situation but its worth a shot since thats most likely the case. You will find the default option in BIOS "EXIT" menu


Thanks,
Best Regards

Boot menu


Your computer's BIOS, or basic input/output system, regulates several important system functions before your operating system loads.
The BIOS can even tell your operating system which device it should load from, whether the computer's hard drive or a USB stick.
You can control this and other options from the BIOS boot menu.
If you own an Acer Aspire One netbook and want to access the boot menu, you can do so by entering the computer's BIOS.

Turn off your Acer Aspire One netbook.
Turn it back on.

Press "F2" when you see the Acer logo appear as the computer boots up.
This will open the computer's BIOS menu.

Press the arrow keys to highlight the Boot option.
Press the down arrow key to highlight specific boot settings to change.


also
Windows operating systems support a variety of boot options on the Windows Advanced Options Menu that allow you boot your computer based on your need.

They support boot options such as Safe Mode, which is generally best for troubleshooting and virus removals; or the Safe Mode with Networking, which allows to use an Internet connection while troubleshooting system problems.
Within seconds, you can access the boot menu and select the option that works well for the task you want to accomplish.

Shut down all currently running programs and restart your computer.
Press "F8" repeatedly before the Windows icon shows up on your screen.
This will bring you to the "Windows Advance Options Menu."

Scroll down and select the boot option you want.
Press "Enter."You can select from "Safe Mode" "Safe Mode with Networking" or your regular booting option.
Choose the boot option based on your need.
For troubleshooting, it is advisable to select "Safe Mode" because only a certain amount of drivers and resources run allowing you to resolve issues.

Shut your computer all the way down. As soon as you turn it on, start hitting F8 about 3-4 times, that will take you to an advanced options menu. Select "Last known good configuration" and that should work

The computer shuts down on its own, stay on for about 5 mins. I made everything is plugged in.


Restart the computer in safe mode (Press F8 key when you restart computer and see the dell log untill you see the Advanced boot options, choose safe mode using your up and down arrow key and hit enter).

you system will load the basic windows drivers and will not connect to internet.
Please keep your system on and work with it for some time and test it. Even in this mode if your computer restarts then its definitely due to heat, else its due to application errors or driver errors

My computer will not boot up keeps closing down


check how often it shuts down and if it shuts down when you start a particular application then start your computer and go to BIOS and leave it on there ( for example if your comp shuts down every 3 mins in normal mode then leave the comp on for 15 mins in bios to determine if it is a hardware or software issue then check in sfae mode the event log or error reporting if any hardware is causing the issue, update the drivers or try with new user or reinstall OS as last option.

Insert smart card into reader problem


I think its looking for a boot command from the card reader. Which means pressing the DEL or F10 or F2 key repeatedly while booting to get into your bios to change your boot order.

If it wont let you, try booting while pressing the F8 key, with luck it may bring up windows boot options, choose the safe mode. When up, Click on Start - all programmes - accessories - system tools - system restore - choose a date prior to problems. (This is for XP, Vista and Win7 slightly different)

Boot from your windows disk, and choose the repair option.

Or download, UBCD4Win , the ultimate boot cd for windows, This will load a windows shell system with loads of diagnotic and repair tools.

You could download and run Ubuntu without installing, that will give you access to any data files.

If none of this works, the only recourse is to re-install windows. But in
doing this, you will be re-formatting the hard drive which will remove all data on the drive.

If you don't have a copy of windows, you do have Ubuntu. I use it nearly all the time now, even though I have a dual boot system.

It is constantly on the loading circle on vista and take ages to load any programs and wont let me shut down


When the laptop boot up press F8 and F5 several times to come onto a boot menu, choose to boot in Safe Mode.
If it still slow then it's a hardware problem (HDD, RAM, Micropro...).
Usually it's the hard drive, to be know you can try to boot from a usb flash disk with linux for example or another HDD of course, you will have to enter the bios to change the boot sequence.
If not Windows has some trouble (virus, file missing...etc.), put vista cd and use his tool to fix it ( backup everything before because you might LOOSE all your data). If it's a virus...Mmmh...long process to clean it ...but if you have time try as many free antispyware,antivirus, trojan remover, worm remover... as you can. One after another preferably.
Good luck and don't forget to rate.
cheers

UNMOUNTABLE______BOOT_____VOLUME ***Stop: 0 X


It could be a problem with the harddrive and memories ,if you enter the DELL bios setup page when the computer starts up does it have an option to test the hard drive if so test it.
Also if you have two memory sticks then try with only one and vice versa.

Try booting with another boot CD like the ultimate boot CD it has some hard drive testing tools too.

Good Luck

My Compaq Presario 700 CM2130 failed to boot one day out of the blue. It just gave me an error message saying Operating System Not Found. I put in the disk for Windows XP and after a few minutes of loading...


When you get to the BIOS window, do you get a message saying that is going to shut down in some period of time of does it just shut down?

Here is my best guess and solution. I believe you've got a worm virus. If you have nothing that you want on this hard drive, and you've got a full install Windows XP disk, I'd do a full install with a complete format, not a quick format, FAT32, if you can, NTFS, if you can't and reinstall Windows XP.
