SInce you don't indicate which Operating System you're using, I'll make a wild guess that it's Vista. If it is, starting with the computer off:

1. Press the power button an immediately start tapping the F8 key.
2. When a screen appears with some starstup options, scroll to Safe Mode using the arrow keys and press the Enter key.
3. Be patient while the computer gets to the Desktop. The display will be oversized and a little fuzzy. That's normal.
4. In Safe Mode, go to the Start Menu and navigate to System Restore. Restore the computer to an erlier time when it was working.

If you cannot get to safe mode, then you likely have a hard drive failure or motherboard or other Windows system corruption and would need to re-install Windows from a Vista disc. You will likely lose any data you had.

Test your PSU or replace it

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle and fail to boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

hope this helps

Aspire 5475 freezes on startup


It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!

Computer won't allow me to log on :(


Hi Samantha, I am not sure what operating system you have but if it is windows 7 or windows 8, try rebooting and pressing the F8 function key as it just starts booting up. This should bring up the advanced boot options. You can then select Startup repair. Hopefully this will fix your issue.

Toshiba laptop restarting


The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.


This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.


You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.


Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.


Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.


Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.


Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.


Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.


Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.


Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.


Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.


Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.


Hope this helps

HP laptops are well known for motherboard issues, and will usually involve a replacement board, at this point have it checked before a decision is made.
