First think You should Do is Look at the Fans and Heatsink Blades... They Could Be Clogged.... Or a Dust/Hair Ball can be stick in the fan chamber... Use Forced Air To Blow Out .. (make sure you're not blowing it further into the laptop though)
You Might need to remove the underside of the case to access these parts... Also Take the Memory out and reseat it back in place... Pull the hard drive and Reseat that as well...... after all that... reattempt a boot.....
if still messed up... try booting into Safe mode by pressing F8 upon boot and choose the first choice to boot in Safe Mode.
there you can run checkdisk and/or troubleshoot further..

Installing windows vista and it freezes during expanding files, sometimes get as far as 72% and then stops


I have vista on a laptop and it is the worst os that windows ever made. So I'm assuming you got this for free and that is why you are installing it. One problem I noticed continually with vista is that it is such a processor hog that it would shut my laptop off every time it was running any program that required a lot of loading files. So maybe this initial installation...especially if this is a laptop, is the processor is going extra slow because of heat.
O don't know your physical location...but to rule out heat based freezing of vista, try to do the install after the computer has been sitting completely off for a night. The best thing would be to take it outside or in the garage if it is below 40F or so and do the installation in the coldest weather possible.
If the installation still freezes and you are certain it isn't related to an overheated processor, try reformatting the harddrive ( assuming you are doing a clean install) and start the vista install from the boot up off the dvd

I have a dell involve laptop while i was trying to set back to factory specks i got locked out and it wont let me access any thing with out my administrator password and i don't no it what can i do to save...


No laptop is trashed when a password is lost. It just takes a little time to find out how to get into the system. I'll assume it is running XP Home that was originally installed on it from the specs I saw when researching. I'll also assume the password is not the one necessary to get into the BIOS CMOS setup- that one can normally be cleared by removing the CMOS battery and letting it set for a few hours or longer so the information is lost. The OS password can be cleared by making a bootable disk for that purpose. I have a Unix CD program that I made from information I downloaded from the Internet. You can do the same if you have access to a CD burner on another computer, say a friend's or one at work. I can get you the program's name if that's the route you want to take.

How do I return my msi wind u180 to factory settings


Use the recovery partition on your MSI laptop to recover its original factory settings. Recovering your MSI laptop to its original factory settings will resolve problems with instability that you may be experiencing as a result of missing system files that were accidentally deleted. Recovering your MSI laptop to its original factory settings will also completely remove any viruses on your computer's hard drive that you were unable to remove with anti-virus software. Fortunately, you can wipe all of the information off your laptop's hard drive and start with a clean slate.


Instructions
  • 1
Turn on or restart your laptop. Press "F3" repeatedly when the MSI logo appears on the screen during the boot process to be redirected to the "Windows Boot Manager."
  • 2
Highlight "Windows Setup [EMS Enabled]" using the arrow keys on the keyboard. Press "Enter" to access the recovery partition on the hard drive of the MSI laptop. The "System Recovery Option" dialog box will appear on the screen. Click "MSI Recovery Manager." Click "OK" when a message appears on the screen notifying you that your computer will be restored to its original factory settings.
  • 3
Click "OK" when a message appears notifying you that the hard drive will be formatted to begin the recovery process. A dialog box with a status bar will appear to indicate how much time is left in the recovery process. Depending on the size of your hard drive as well as how much personal data needs to be erased, the recovery process could take up to 45 minutes.
  • 4
Click "OK" when a dialog box appears on the screen indicating that the recovery process is complete. Your laptop will automatically restart and boot up to the Windows setup screen, where you can begin personalizing the settings for your Windows operating system.

Reset factory settings for toshiba S241-504


Back up all of you data to an external drive before you begin the process
If you make a mistake during the process, your laptop may not be able to turn on or load the
operating system, so copy valuable information to media where you can retrieve it, even if your laptop malfunctions.

Turn on your system and wait for it to finish loading Windows and start-up programs.
You can tell when the operating system has loaded, and start-up programs have been initiated, by the HDD (hard disk drive) light.
It should have came with discs. Put one in and reboot the laptop
Insert the system disk when the hard disk light stops blinking, signaling that the processor has finished accessing the hard disk, and that the system is idle. Shut down your laptop after you insert the disc.
You do not have to wait for the computer to access data from the disc.

Turn on the laptop again. Keep pressing the "C" key continuously as the system boots. This will enable the laptop to boot from the disk. Once the disk is accessed, the laptop will show

the message "Loading Files;" begin the factory reset process by always selecting the default option that pops up.

You can also use the "F12" key to boot from the disk.
Highlight the CD/DVD option and press "Enter" to begin the restore process.

Follow the on-screen instructions until the process finishes

Restoring a Toshiba laptop back to factory settings may take 30 to 45 minutes.

Unless you terminate a process by pressing "Cancel," your laptop will be rolled back to factory defaults, when the operating system installs completely.

hope this helps

These drives are too complicated and they die like crazy.
It sounds like it's fairly new so you shouldn't have problems with RMA.
You are lucky you didn't have any valuable data on it...

Sounds like you may have a virus. It could be a memory issue. If you know a tech have them try also try recovery console/fixmbr/fixboot. This will write a new master boot record which does get corrupt and keeps the OS from booting up. At the same time have them do a REPAIR of your operating system. If all else fails REINSTALL.....
