So, the problem is due to a hardware/software configuration or failure. I know, very broad. But, one of the purposes of the Blue Screen (of death) is to communicate the failure (code). To really troubleshoot this, you need to make a note of the content of the blue screen text, specifically the file/component of the failure and the error code.

Can you elaborate on your computer? What operating system is it running?

First, try to start into Safe Mode using the F8 method. For details on how to do that, try checking out the following, which is one of many tutorials.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial61.html
If you get into safe mode, the failure is occuring in accessory systems/drivers not loaded in safe mode (networking, video, etc).

If your system doesn't come up then, still try to get into the F8 menu, and if there is an option to 'disable automatic restart on system failure' and then try to start.

Then, get any info you can and do searches on google on the file/component and error code. Bound to be alot of info, so have patience.

If you need more help, please post an update and any info you were able to get.

How do I reboot my pc


You know where the on/off switch is. Look below it on the main case there should be a reboot button. This will shut down the computer hard but should go to the screen that asks if you want to start the computer normally. Just hit enter on your key board. If it starts normally without errors then you are fine. If you have errors or goes Blue Screen of Death then repeat as I've recommended but don't select start normally. Select to start from an earlier saved time where there are no errors. Go to a time where your computer started normally that you remember. Getting to this point could be much more complicated. Incidentally, how did you blog here if you are having problems?

When i try to reboot my dell inspiron 1501 to factory settings after i press F8 and click "repair computer" it just starts normally and goes to my desktop.


Hi,

To restore your Dell computer to it's original factory settings, here's how:

To use PC Restore:
  1. Turn on the computer.

During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top of the screen.

  1. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press .

If you do not press in time, let the computer finish starting, and then restart the computer again.
notice.gif NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.

  1. On the next screen that appears, click Restore.

  2. On the next screen, click Confirm.

The restore process takes approximately 6-10 minutes to complete.

  1. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the computer.

note.gif NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer completely reboot.
  1. When prompted, click Yes.

The computer restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer was turned on.

  1. Click Next.

The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
After the computer restarts, click OK.

Thanks and have a good one.

Blue screen error


The most frustrating blue screen computer errors are basically caused by some physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of PC components, or hardware running beyond its limits, device driver conflicts etc.
If you see the blue screen and halts occur in boot process, and also notice some specific error message appear on your screen, this indicates a serious issues most probably due to inappropriate device driver or firmware .Blue screen is really an annoying issue and creates a lot of trouble to the end user.
Follow these steps to fix a Blue Screen in Safe Mode
Once booting start, select "Safe Mode" from the boot menu.
Scan your hard drive by running your antivirus software . If the program locates an infection, move it to your vault or follow the on-screen instructions. After program completion, if a virus was removed, attempt to reboot your computer and see if this clears up the problem. If not, restart your computer in safe mode.
Restore your computer to a previous point. Click on the "Start" button. Select "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and finally "System Restore". Choose a restore point on or before the last day your computer worked without error. Finally Reboot your computer to see if it loads correctly.

Having problems rebooting from recovery disk


Hi,

The laptop should have a hidden recovery partition on it to return it back to factory settings.
Make sure the laptop is switched off and then press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear.

If there is no recovery partition then to get it to boot from the CD/DVD drive repeatedly press the F12 key as you start the laptop up.


If you need anymore help please post back.



Regards.

Laptop switches off without warning


Take a look at the event viewer (Start -> Run -> type "eventvwr" and hit OK) and see if there are any STOP errors right before or right after the reboot time. The machine is probably set to automatically restart after a blue screen STOP error (aka "Blue Screen of Death", or BSOD), but that's making it reboot too quickly for you to see the actual error. Post a new problem with the STOP error code and we can help you out further!
