you must hold down the F10 key( for system recovery) when you turn on computer. hold down as computer starts up,hopefully it will then repair itself and boot up. If not,start up computer holding down F12 for advanced diagnostics and run some test!! Good luck

SOURCE: Computer will not get past the BIOS screen

it sounds like a problem regarding the POST process (power on self test) which is the first thing your computer does when booting up when testing the components that make up your system to make sure it has what it needs to start booting. which in your case could mean you may have a hardware problem. do you know what jumper on the motherboard you were trying with?

Try to reset your cmos by removing the cmos battery, waiting a few minutes, reinstall the battery and try to restart?

if possible post what system you have to get more details on how to reset your motherboard:

Wow. It's very hard to find it seems.

If you have a Recovery CD, it really, REALLY, should be located on there somewhere (search for .pdf or .doc files on the cd when it's in your drive).

Otherwise, you might have to register for free with these guys to get support.

have you tried the Fn + F6 key combo? you can then use the cyberlink youcam software that is on the programs menu - i think you might have to register the software whne you first set it up.

By pressing DEL can you enter the BIOS setup screen? If so, can you see the hard drive designated? It is usually in the initial screen where it lists all recognized peripherals, including your DVD drive and (hopefully) your hard drive.

Hi, i have an advent t9408 thay i bought off a friend with now hdd or ram so iv added 2 gb ram and a spare hdd i had, now it will not boot at all not even to the bios option screen, i managed to get it to...


First read articles on "ESD".

Look for any warnings or post messages during boot sequence

1. Verify the RAM are the correct modules for your computer.
2. If the RAM is correct then remove 1 stick of RAM
3. Check the jumper settings on the HDD to verify Master, Slave, or Cable Select.
4. Remove the hard drive and verify the system will post.
5. Reinstall the HDD and boot to Bios and verify all devces are detected.
6. You might reset the Bios with the J2,3 to the J1,2 jumper.on the mother board.

We lost the password to our Vista machine. Have downloaded crack programs, but can't get the machine to boot from the disks so that we can crack the password


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)

hop this helps

When logging into windows vista, screen says locked. Once I type password in the desk top appears briefly and then goes back to login screen


Boot up your PC then when the bios screen disappears press F8 (to give you menu options like safe mode) one of these options is a vista repair option.....choose that and your pc should boot into windows properly....I believe this is a corrupt winlogon.exe....

Advent 4211-b problem with built in webcam not working


Go to the device manager. You will see a section called Imaging devices. Click on the plus sign. if any device is listed uninstall it and then restart your computer. The drivers will get installed automatically or you need to use the driver CD to reinstall the same. Once installed use any software like Cyberlink Youcam or any other software provided to you by your vendor. make sure the input device selected is the required webcam.

ADVENT KC550P Lap Top scren


the pc is standing at command prompt, which means it is unable to find the boot.ini file required to boot into windows

When you say you pressed F8 did you keep pressing it until you got a menu saying Safe Mode,last known good configuration, start in VGA mode etc, if so use last known good configuration and let it reboot.

If still nothing then you will need the windows cd to perform a system repair.
