System won't boot

My machine froze up and started making a horrible whining sound. I unplugged it, and tried to restart and all I get is the screen showing a big "e" in black and white and "boot " and BIOS " written on the screen. what do I do?

My aspire T671 won't boot passed the acer splash


restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work
hope this helps you

Turn the pc off and turn it back on again. As soon as you turn it on, press the f2, f8 or delete key to get the pc to go into the bios system. Try each key one time and if it does not stop the startup and open the bios system, turn the pc off and restart it again and try the next one. If you can get the pc to go into the bios system, you can retstore the pc back to the last known good configuration. Then save to CMOS and exit. Then restart the pc again and it should start normally. You can also buy a windows 7 disk and put it in the drive and restart the pc to get it to boot from the disk and restore it by reinstalling the operating system.

hi there,
well this won't sound good but you are most likely suffering from a hardware failure. It sounds like your video card. this can overheat once and just get worse from there(runs for but 20 minutes or so then dead). so you would have to replace that to fix the first issue.
ok so since you have done a reinstall to a drive that had a kernel(version of windows) that is still present and newer thru updates. the recovery is a missmatch in files.
so you have now made it hard to get to your data unless you have another hard drive(then just do a fresh install to new drive and view old drive for data). as you will need to have a new boot record on the operating systems drive (or clean the old drives boot record with fixmbr this would require much more explanation)

hope this helps

sounds like your windows installation took a hit, try booting from the windows cd into the repair console and do a chkdsk /F /R; a fixboot and an fixmbr command. if ths doesn't work, try the repair option. You can also try to boot from a hirens boot disk and try the tools that come with that.

Your startup got corrupted. If you have an emergency boot floppy, you should be able to get to DOS. This may not work unless Floppy is in your Boot order. If your lucky, you have a cd/dvd in the boot order. Try to put your original XP or Vista disks in and see if you can boot. You can then see files.

Blue Screen


Usually when you get a blue screen an error shows up on the page. This error can assist in solving the problem! The error is something like STOP 0x00000000 You might need to try it one more time to get the stop error! Write down any error messages or filenames of the screen! cause sometimes stop errors are caused by faulty programs! Search support.microsoft.com for the meaning of the stop error or post back information to this post so that i can see what could be the problem! Another question, Do you have sp2 installed? regards, babb
