    Can you describe what happens when you try to boot?

    Do you get any blue screen with white writing, if so what does it say?

    Which version of windows are you running?

Try to check first if your hard drive is working. Just follow the steps.

  1. Load BIOS Utility by pressing any of the following keys upon booting or as soon as you have turn on your computer. (keys may varry depending on the brand or type of computer you are using but the following are the most common (del, f1,f2,f10) Just try any of the following.
  2. Under advanced option please check you hard drive settings. A numeric value should be displayed on the list or in some cases if you see AUTO in this option it means the BIOS automatically detects the hard drive. Just place your cursor on this option and press enter. The BIOS should react and will display the type of hard drive installed.
  3. If BIOS utility was unable to detect the hard drive and you still have a blue screen everytime you boot you will need to reinstall the operating system or run your recovery disk .

What's your problem? wont boot


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

My laptop has power but wont boot...please help


hi,

Try to boot you computer to safemode, turn off computer then turn it back on then keep on tapping F8, then choose safemode, if youre able to boot to safemode, do system restore going back to the time that its properly working, click start > all programs > accesories> system tools > system restore then pick a date when you think that its properly working..

If its not able to boot to safemode, you will need to reinstall the operating system using the recovery disc that came with the computer.


Hope this will help... Please rate...

My hp media centerm7250n computer wont boot up from the recovery dvd sounds as if the hard drive is spinning


Disconnect the "data" and "power" cables from the disk-drive.
Boot from the Recovery DVD, just to prove that your computer can boot. Of course, you may get an error-message, when no disk-drive is detected, but you will have proved that your computer can boot properly.

Connect a different disk-drive, and boot again from the Recovery DVD, to confirm that it will boot, when some "other" disk-drive is detected.

Replaced hard drive now computer wont boot


If you have a restore CD/DVD that came with your Toshiba, you may have to use it to reformat your hard drive and do a fresh installation. You may have a bad sector or cluster and the boot file is located on it. Try this and check the bios for the setting of your hard disk too. Try starting the system on safe mode by pressing F8 at boot time.
