Won't boot even after restore

The screen would get stuck at the blue backround with windows logo. Tried safe mode and still stuck there. Then I did a system restore with the recovery disks. Still at the same problem. Please help!

Try saving your computer files in a separate hard disc then reformat your pc. After reformating your pc intall an updated antivirus program, transfer your files from the separate hard disc into your pc then clean your system.
Thanks! i hope i've been a help to your problem.

Looks like you did as much as you could. Only thing left would be to do a fresh install. Let me know how you make out.

Hi Leonard Fazio,
Have you tried going into Safe mode and the settings, control , uninstall programs - select show updates and then remove last update.

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ss/safe-mode-windows-7.htm
another way is to select system restore while in safe mode and restore to an earlier version depends on what o/s you have. Search for it in control panel or settings. While in Safe mode.

Restart the computer and Tap F8 to boot to safe mode. Once you see the options, then use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode and hit enter. Once you are inside safe mode, then do the system restore from there.

Click on start > programs > accessories > system tools > system restore

Select a restoration point and launch it.

If you can't go to safe mode, please drop me a line and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Why won't my compaq presario 1250 load windows?


1 - You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


2 - 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 only you initiate.

If you can see the windows logo and get into the bios then it is not the graphics card.

Most likely cause is the os itself, just after post press F8 repeatetly until you have the boot mode page open and choose safe mode, in safe mode do a system restore, goto start bar, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore, and start from a resent restore point. This can can take a while, so be patient and let the computer restore itself until you have the windows screen up.

If the restore dosent work, goto safe mode again, right click on my computer goto properties and enter device manager, in there under display adapters click on the plus sign and uninstall the graphics card, reboot. hope this helps post back if need farther help.

Start your computer in safe mode (press F8 before you get the Windows splash screen). I usually suggest pressing F8 continuously as soon as you see anything on the screen.
Once you get the white menu up that allows you to enter safe mode, let the computer boot into safe mode and do a system restore back to when you know the system worked.
That should solve the problem.

Hello,
Have you tried to boot in Safe mode? Well if not then press F8 as the PC starts and select safe mode. If it works, then select the 'system restore' option which will appear and restore the system to as far back as it worked very well. Your files will be intact. Well if safe mode those not work, then since you cannot change your boot order to boot from CD/DVD, then you would have to take out your hard drive and connect it to another PC and follow this tip of mine: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3766678-booting_bootable_windows_cd_dvd_fresh

All the best.

Won't boot - brief blue screen


Press F8 while booting but before it goes into SAFE mode select "Temporarily disable restart." Now you should be able to read the Blue Screen. If this doesn't work it's likely you have the GenericFX virus and you'll need to repair the operating system.

Gateway desktop xp starts then flashes blue screen for split seco


Sometimes they make the recovery disk with windows on it, but not the programs that start windows during the boot up phase. One of the three main files that boots into windows is corrputed or your Master Boot Record is missing. There are two options you can try without the OS disc so lets see if one of those will work: 1) boot up and press F8 to enter safe mode. Once in safe mode sometimes you can also get into window because just the minimum of the program is loaded. F8 Safe Mode>in windows>click start>accesories>system tools>system restore. It will allow you to restore your computer to a prior date before you have problems. 2)if that don;'t work then F8 safe mode and while in safe mode choose Last Known Configuration. Kinda works the same way as restoe but you don't have to be in windows to do it. If those don't work then get your hands on a windows xp disc, anyone's will do, don't have to be yours. Let me know how it goes.
Rate this solution. You can also find out about this at support.microsoft.com>help and support>type in Windows XP boot disk in the search engine.If those don't work let me know and we'll move on to phase II.
