Problems Booting up

Long Story...Yesterday my computer was working fine. This morning when I tried to turn it on it went to a black screen with different options such as safe, last working , continue running, etc. I tried all and NOTHING worked, everytime it would flash a blue screen and then go back to the black screen. I got out my repair CD and tried to reset everything, but even that isn't working. I've tried to "set up Windows XP now" and that didn't work I then tried to "repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console" but I can't get through the first couple of steps due to lack of password or not knowing which option to pick. PLEASE HELP! I already know I'm going to loose all my documents on my computer, but is there some way to fix it without paying megga bucks to do so???

Your computer motherboard has fried thanks to the brilliant powers-that-be in HP. The P4 chip is too strong and the batteries die often and the the thing heats like a ceramic heater. Thanks to them alot of people are finding themselves with a 1800.00+ piece of ****. BTW they will not replace it and stated that the time frame for a Class Action lawsuit is overwith and expired. Good Luck on yours.
Very bitterly yours,

Compaq Presario SR1000 won't boot up completely :(


Hi Thanks for your question
I would suggest to enter "safe mode" and then do system restore again. To do this you need to follow these steps.
1.Turn your PC on and press F8 on start up. This should take you to the screen asking what you want to do. 2. Choose safe mode from the list and press enter. 3. Once safe mode loads you should be asked if you want to restore your system to previous state. Just press no to run system restore and follow steps (you already know how to do this)
Shutting your computer down without closing operation system properly may cause start up issues like this one.
I hope this helps you. Good luck

Screen is black


Most likely you will need to do a re-set. Just slide the power switch to the left for 8 seconds. It should then re-boot. It this doesn't work, you've got more serious problems.

Hanns g JC199D will not turn on, comp is on, try to turn monitor


no signal indicates a couple things... i suspect your computer isn't even booting up. reboot the computer while tapping the F8 key.... you should see writing on the screen... boot to safe mode. after it sucessfully boots up... reboot again... should be fine.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.

Trouble with my new acer aspire desktop computer


Slow boot problems on any computers are due to 2 reasons :
(1) Hardware reasons and
(2)Software reasons

(TRY THE SOLUTION MENTIONED FOR SOFTWARE FIRST, IF THAT DOES NOT HELP, ONLY THEN TRY THE HARDWARE SOLUTION)

HARDWARE REASONS> if your system has less RAM (memory) then it can cause slow boot up issues,
SOLUTION FOR HARDWARE > I recommend you to check the amount of memory on your system., to check the memory on your system , click on start , then "right click" on "my computer " icon and select properties.. on the screen you will the the amount of RAM installed. I recommend 1 GB of RAM on a computer.

SOFTWARE REASONS> These can be a problem with the windows XP operating system.
SOLUTION FOR SOFTWARE> perform the steps as mentioned in the following links :
