I tried rebooting my Phillips X57 laptop. However the battery died on me halfway through. Now when i turn it on, the windows boot manager comes up. It says: 'Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. File: \windows\system32\winload.exe Status: 0xc000000f Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt. You can contact me by emailing: daniel40k@hotmail.com Thanks, Dan

Note The computer must be configured to start from a CD or from a DVD. For
information about how to configure the computer to start from a CD or from a
DVD, see the information that came with the computer.
2. Restart the computer. To do this, click Start, click the arrow next to
the Lock button, and then click Restart.

This usually means that you enter bios setup by whatever key or keys
(sometimes there is more than one key that will do it for your model--go to
pc manufacturer site) and configure CD to be first in the boot order.

See for ref:

Note If you cannot restart the computer by using this method, use the power
button to turn off the computer. Then, turn the computer back on.

3. Set your language preference, and then click Next.

Note In most cases, the startup repair process starts automatically, and you
do not have the option to select it in the System Recovery Options menu.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click the operating system
that you want to repair, and then click Next.

6. In the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair to start the
repair process.

7. When the repair process is complete, click Finish.

Best bet would be to do a file restore for the OS. Here is a quick link that will guide you through the process.

El1358g-51w loaded drivers so far and then stopped error message read i had to restart and it would load and did not


You will have to reboot into safe mode to remove those drivers from the device manager and then reboot and allow windows to find the drivers it wants and not the drivers you think are the right ones because sometimes a flaky driver will stop windows cold and lock it into a loop forever.
If you do not know how to boot into safe mode, when you turn on your computer, the moment you see anything on your monitor start rapidly pressing the F8 key until you get a boot screen that has a choice of booting into safe mode, then follow the directions and when you finally get into windows go to the device manager, (in most windows will either be accessible from the control panel or from the control panel then clicking on system>then hardware tab>then device manager button.
Good luck!

I have lost my instruction booklet and it has been almost 1.5 years since I have used the notebook. I cannot get it to turn off. It keeps saying Windows is Shuting Down; however, it is still on. Can...


Hi There,

Simply hold down the power button until the notebook shuts down. Then, restart the notebook and it may just boot up normally. If you're taken to a screen with options that include Startup Repair or Start Windows Normaly, try Normaly first. If it won't start, use Startup Repair the next time around.

When you leave a notebook off that long, Windows may have tried to install dozens of updates. You will need to patiently update Windows completely.

After installing windows security updates, i could not get windows vista to come up and i don't have a recovery disk from Acer for my Acer Aspire T180 PC Desktop.


I run into this all the time, thank you microsoft!
First, shut it down and take a break, make sure you power the computer completely down to a cold boot. Walk away for ten, fifteen minutes.
Then when you come back boot into your setup (bios) screen, to do this is different for each manufacturer, some require you to hit del, some F2, some F10... when you get there Change your boot order to anything other than what it currently is, and save it. Reboot. let windows try to start. if it does, great! If not, reboot and Go BACK to the setup screen and change your boot order BACK to what you NEED/WANT it to be and save again and reboot. This SHOULD take you back to a windows startup of either a repair or safe startup screen. DO NOT REPAIR! Boot normally. The updates lost a startup configuration that is written INTERNALLY to windows. Since you altered the hardware configuration by changing the boot sequence around, windows had to rewrite this and away you go. On a laptop it gets a bit more confusing as you have to do this without the battery in place or it will continually write the data to the hard drive under the laptops auto powerdown/save features that a desktop does not have. NOTE: if this does not work any other bios change other than clock/calander will force this dmi configuration change. but typically the boot sequence is the safest to alter, as you do not risk messing up critical setting with this one.

when you turn on your computer at the boot screen press F8, this should get you into safe mode. and if you cannot. or it's still rebooting on you then i would find a recovery disk or boot disk. and check for viruses in your master boot sector. this may be recovered by using a windows recovery disk. (after dealing with the virus). you may even need to do a full reinstallation but a recovery should do. Also i've seen reboot problems occure with hardware problems, such as a blown capasitor on you motherboard. if recovery or even full reinstall fails i'd have you hardware checked for problems. I've found a forum that may supply a little insite to this prob. http://www.techexams.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12121
I hope this helps.

Laptop screen died


Try pressing F8 at boot up see if the safe mode menu comes in. If it does boot into safe mode and once in windows change the screen properties i.e uninstall as when you reboot in normal mode the windows will recognize the monitor and install drivers for it. If you cannot see the sub menu after pressing F8 then there is possibly a power supply to the monitor problem or the monitor is faulty. You can get reconditioned units for this laptop will try eBay first. Check out the prices then decide to proceed or replace.

Thanks J
