Will not start up normally (freezes )

I can not start up computer, it freezes.  When I turn the computer off and then on again it prompts me to startup normally,  start at last known working settings,  start in safe mode,  start in safe mode with networking...
It will only start in safe mode with networking and my screen is shrunken!
    I have restored computer to a previous date,  several times!
    I have done the BIOS setup.
                 HELP My computer freezes on start-up. I unplug the computer and then re-plug and try again. After 1 or 2 attempts it starts up. Lately, I have to do it 3 or 4 times. I have done the "destructive recovery" program, which puts the PC back to the original state. However, the same problem persists.

Change boot cd rom bios300


Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot its operating system directly from the installed hard disk drive.
There are some cases where you may want to boot from a different device, such as loading from the floppy drive to install a new operating system.
In order to change the boot order on the IBM computer you need to access the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) menu.

Close any applications that are still running.
Turn off the IBM 300PI computer and then turn it back on again.
Tap the "F1" key when the "Configuration/Setup Utility" prompt appears at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the down arrow key four times to highlight the "Start Options" entry.


Press the Enter key.
Highlight the "Startup Sequence" entry and then press Enter again.

Scroll down and highlight "First Startup Device."
Press Enter. Scroll through the list of available boot order devices.
Highlight the device you want to use, such as "CD Drive" or "Floppy Drive," and press Enter.

Press the "Escape" key twice.
Highlight "Save Settings" and then tap Enter.
Power off the IBM computer and then power it back on.

Computer freezes up after loading personal settings . C.annot find start up module pops up. Acrobat reader pops up with folders on screen. If all these pop up and I close them then loading continues and...


It seems the acrobat application is creating these problems. Please use the system configuration utility to remove this application from startup.

Click on Start >Run (If you have Windows 7 then type msconfig in search)and then type msconfig. In the msconfig window, under the startup tab, look for any entry which says Adobe and uncheck it. Click on Apply and OK and restart the system. This should do the trick.

Philips mt1800 displays problems with startup


You can't fix that anymore, your windows copy is now "corrupted or impotent".
If it won;t work on safe mode, probably your system files are at a bad condition.
Recovery disc might get you to startup again, but if ever there is a virus it will just happen again.
I advise you to reformat if you don't have anymore files to save.
If ever there is, well... maybe get a linux live CD so you can browse through your hard disk again.
Hope I helped, cheers.

The problem has been a series of smaller problems which progressively resulted in a lock or freeze. The few times it does not freeze, a screen flashes on selling a Spyware protection. I think my husband...


Try starting your computer in safe mode and do a virus scan once in safe mode. While in safe mode Windows only loads the basic devices to run your computer and usually viruses are not loaded untill windows starts in regular mode. Don't panic once you are in safe mode and your screen looks all grainy, this is normal. 
  1. Restart your computer and press F8 as soon as you turn it on.
  2. Click the "safe mode with networking" option
  3. Update your antivirus
  4. Do a full system scan
  5. Restart your computer and hope for the best.
If that doesn't work, than reinstall windows.
If you need further assistance, let me know.
Avast is the best free antivirus there is. google it, install it, and enjoy your computer again.Another option is to reinstall windows. If you have the cd that came with the computer than put it in the cd rom and restart your computer and follow onscreen instructions.

Computer will not start past safe mode screen


In safe mode, hit start button -run, and type "msconfig" in the box , hit enter.
the system configuration utility opens.
select startup tab at the top
when the startup screen opens, UNcheck all the boxes, press APPLY, then OK
the computer will prompt you to restart, when it restarts it will give you a message saying you have use the system configuration utility to change the way windows starts, this is normal. Check the box that say dont show this again and click OK.
doing this will keep the programs set to start when windows starts from starting untill you start them manually. If one of them is causing the freeze, this will make the system accessible.
Keep in mind, you may want to turn some of them back on after you get the computer going and when you do , turn them on one at a time and restart the computer after each change. this way you can identify which program is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. please repost if you have more questions
