Try booting the computer up in recovery mode... (need your installation cd, if you have one) from recovery mode you can run "chkdsk /p" to search for a damaged section on your hard drive that is keeping you from booting up. If you have damaged sections of your hardrive it could cause some data to have been damaged and not replaceable so hopefully you have backups...
Alternative could be reinstallation to fix the problem...
Good luck.

I have Acer Iconia B1 it has put itself in safe mode I've tried everything but cant acess wifi my settings show I have a strong signal and connected but the WiFi ?? symbol is not blue, what can I do


Hi,

I'm afraid you can't access wireless Internet while in safe mode.
Try pressing Alt and F10 when turning on your computer and choosing safe mode with networking instead of safe mode.

How to get out of sleep mode?


You turned the laptop on and off and it still is asleep?

When you turned it off did the power go completely off? If not remove the power cord to make it go off.

Try booting up into safe mode and see if it goes to sleep.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity so you can view the manual later) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Check your Power Options in the Control Panel to set your Sleep Mode and Hibernation up higher or set it to NEVER. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Power Option (it might be under System and Performance).


Below is a link to your user manual. You want to go to Pages 77 and 78 where it talks about changing the Power Plan. You want to select Change Advanced Settings as it talks about on pages 78 and you will be allowed to change the hibernate and sleep settings.

My gateway desktop model gt5026e shuts down/reboots automatically. i cleaned the cooling fans and made sure they were working properly but it still reboots at random,


To isolate the issue, try to boot to the BIOS screen by tapping on F2 on boot. If it goes to the BIOS and does not restart, you have good hardware components. If the issue is still eminent in the BIOS, then you have a problem with your processor. You need to have it replaced.
If it is not hardware, we need to further isolate. Boot to Safe Mode by tapping on F8 on boot. Choose either safe mode or safe mode with networking.
No issues on safe mode: then the problem is with the advanced software. Try to remember when the issue started. Restore your computer setting to previous date before the issue started. (start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore). Once you have booted to normal mode, do not forget to update your security software and scan your system.
If there are issues with safe mode: There is bigger problem with your OS. Try system restore as well. Hopefully this fixes the issue. If it does not, you need to reformat your system.
Good Luck!

I have a dell inspiron lap top with window's vista. There is a problem with it. Even when I turn it on with safe mode it goes to the log in screen, then says welcome, and then it goes to a black screen...


Usually what happens with my Dell Inspiron desktop, even on safe mode it goes to the logon screen. I have never experienced that with my Dell Inspiron 1318. When you log in and it shows you the black screen, try pressing the function buttons. Try F8 or F12. You should be able to start the computer in Safe Mode. If possible, enter Safe Mode with Networking so that you are able to search the web. If you don't mind me asking, why is it that you need safe mode? Is it a virus?

Network ethernet prolem


Access the BIOS and see if the ethernet device is enabled (do this only if the ethernet device is built in on the board). If its a card, its more than likely dmaged. Replace the card.

GATEWAY 310


I wonder if that is a computer virus.

Try putting the computer into safe mode by shutting the computer down, wait 30 seconds, turn if back on.

At the beginning of the boot press and hold down the f8 button. Use the up and down arrow keys to select safe mode and press enter.

After windows finishes starting up in safe mode, restart your computer the normal way.

If the login screen still appears that way and you can get into safe mode, I can tell you how to go into the control panel and change the login screen to the other mode. That should work then.
