The error you are receiving is indicating that the Windows Operating System settings cannot be located on your hard drive to complete the loading of Windows. There are several possible causes, starting with a hardware failure of the hard drive. Others could involve a corruption of the registry due to unknown causes.

The first thing to try is the F8 menu during boot (Start tapping F8 when you see the Gateway Splash Screen) and try to boot to the SAFE MODE. If that fails, boot to F8 again and select the Last Known Good option on the menu.

If that fails to boot to windows, then recovering the OS doesn't look to optimistic. Other options are bootcfg /rebuild to check and see if the boot.ini file is corrupted

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291980/en-us

and if that fails I suggest running diagnostics on the hard drive.

A longer shot at recovering the OS is what is known as a HIVE copy in the recovery console. This is essentially a system restore done manually in the recovery console, and is the last ditch effort before reinstalling Windows. Steps for Hive copy are at the bottom of this post:

Compaq pressario start up problem


you need to do a scan disc in tools for the hard drive. it need to be set to auto fix and it will then say it will start on next startup. shut down and restart and just leave it to do its stuff. it should fix it. failing that you need a system monitor system installed like winfix that can detect windows faults and fix them.

APROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER


While you may not be using a Windows 2000 computer, the error/cause is probably similar: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256841
Try to manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
  1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
  2. When Setup starts again, press F7 when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant.

A blue screen appears when i turn on my computer.... sayin "a problem has been detected and windows has beed shut down to prevent damage to your computer."


A blue screen or Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, is generally caused by a corrupt driver or a bad software installation.
First, you need to determine the STOP code that is on that screen.
  • Start in safe mode, press F8 repeatably as the computer starts up,
  • check Disable automatic restart on system failure (This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.)

OK, now the BSOD will stay there so you can determine what caused your problem. Report back the stop code and any information about a driver that caused the problem so we can be of further help.
If this answers your question, I would appreciate 4 thumbs

When i try start u my pc i get this error ''a problem had detected and windows had been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.'' Technical information: *** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203,...


Hi it looks like you have something preventing windows from starting up

Try the following

1) Remove all peripherals you may have attached i.e. printers, fax machines etc etc

2) if it still fails then remove the 3 pin lead from the back of the Tower/PC and press and hold in the power button for 20 seconds (yes i know there is no power going to it)

If all else fails then im afraid your looking at a system restore

Can not start normaly and can not start in safe mode


On your Latitude D600, press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware. If no errors are detected, then you have a problem with your operating system software boot files. For more info go to this Microsoft website:

No boot up


Solution :
  • Run chkdsk /r or chkdsk /f to detect and resolve any file system structural damage.
  • After you use the Chkdsk tool to repair the corrupted NTFS volume, rename %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Ntfs.old to Ntfs.sys, and then shut down and restart the computer.
  • Try disabling any virus scanning programs, backup programs, or disk defragmenter tools that constantly monitor your computer.
  • Run any system diagnostics that are supplied by your computer manufacturer, especially a HDD check.
