This is an operating system error, and you will need an operating system disc. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system, but most likely the hard drive has failed and will need replacing.

My go clever quantum 1010N does not get past the boot up loading screen. you turn the power on it goes to a white screen that says loading and goes no further, why?


Booting into safe mode usually indicates a problem with the machine. When powering it on, keep punching F8 for the "Safe Mode" boot option window and try choosing "Last good Configuration". You might try Restoring it back to before this started. Click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and then System Restore.

Emachines T6524 won't reboot after automatic update. I get the windows screen when I turn it on, and everything seems fine, then the screen goes black and I get the no signal message.


You should try to boot in safe mode without the card removed..If this got on after an update it is possible (almost sure) it messed up with your graphic card driver and now it needs to be reinstalled > To do so ..try to boot in safe mode...To do that press the key indicated on screen for boot menu and choose safe mode ...usually it is f8 key or f12 ..depend on the model .If it seams not to be able to find the safe mode boot ..try to stop the computer by unplugging it ..This will force it to stop improper way ..and will show the screen for safe mode and other ways to boot-up .select the first safe mode ..and let it start ..This mode will not load any drivers and work just with the minimum needed for to start .Go to control panel ...remove programs ..and remove the graphic card driver from the list ..after that if you have the disk insert it and run the driver again in original ..If you do not have it look for it on the manufacturer's site ..and download it ..
If you need help with the driver ..let me know exact model of the computer ..and if it is not an on board card I need to know the exact model of the video card ..

I was updating my avg when my granddaughter touched a button on the computer. She knew she did but does not know which one. Anyhow, the screen went blank. The mouse appears and I can move around but it...


There are a couple ways to fix this , 1. When you turn on the computer as it's booting up start pressing the "F8" button on your keyboard , your pc should load up to a black screen with several options in white text to choose from , try "boot using last known good configuration" , if that is unsuccesfull repeat the previous steps & this time choose "boot safe mode". If you can at least get it to boot into Safe Mode you can undo / repair the changes that occured .

2. If you can't even boot Safe Mode , you can try booting your pc using the operating system installation disc / recovery disc that came with your pc . Once loaded you can select to repair your current installation . Then sit back & wait till it's done , it will reboot & you should be presented with your login screen .

Blue screen was appearing while booting the system


This is a driver issue, try this. Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

When i turn my computer on a blue screen appears saying.... windows has not been succesfully stared up due to unmounable boot volume it then says ive to delete some hardrive/ software or something and to...


You need to backup ASAP. I use a knoppix boot cd with an external hard drive to do this. Boot CD and copy as much as you need, if not everything from your hdd to your external. remember to look closely at drives since the will not have drive letter like dos. Once you've backed everything up, restore the OS. Most dells have a restore cd. if you dont have that, you have to use a regulaar windows cd to reinstall windows. the dell one is easier since you get all the drivers and extra software.next install good anti-virus and update definitions. then copy everything you need back from external hdd. remove extra startup stuff and enjoy the fast new system while it lasts.

It starts with the lenovo screen and then goes to the Windows XP screen but it goes back to the Lenovo screen. What can I do so I wont have to restore my system again?

Try booting up again, if the problem is the same then it a startup file that need repairing so goto safe mode, command prompt type bootcfg etc and try repairting it that way, us e the help command to point you in the right direction.

Computer wont start up fully


Your boot menu for Windows is corrupt. Try to boot from the windows installation disc and make sure to key any key when told to boot off the disc. Once the windows files load, you will have a choice of what to do next. If you have XP, choose the repair option and you will be faced with a black DOS screen...after the blinking cursor type

FIXBOOT hit enter
Try to boot the computer without the disc in it. If it does not boot, then boot off disc again and this time type:

FIXMBR hit yes and enter

Try once again to boot without the disc.

Also try to boot into safe mode by tapping F8 when you see the Compaq name come up during starting. If you can get to the multiple boot up option screen, scroll to "Safe mode with networking" and choose that. If it boots then you can go to the start button > accessories > system tools > system restore > choose a restore point back a day or two and follow the prompts.

If you have Vista, boot off the disc and choose start up repair. If that doesn't work, boot again and choose restore computer to an earlier time. Again choose a restore point back a few days. Good luck ParrotHead PC Repair

I can not get my Acer Aspire 5920 to load after turning on.


Try to see if it will boot in safe mode, by pressing F8 while the laptop boots up. If it allows you to boot in safe mode, try to do a system restore when you know that laptop was working with no problems. You can do this by clicking on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date and time when you know that the laptop was working with no problems. If this does not work or you cannot boot in safe mode (be aware that everything will look big in safe mode and when the computer reboots if asked how you want to start windows, choose start windows normally), try doing a recovery. This will restore your computer to the factory default settings when you purchased it. You can do this by booting the computer, when the acer screen appears hold down the ALT key and continuously press F10, this will open the recovery manager and you can restore it from there.

I hope this helps

Volume control


Try to boot into Safe Mode (windows 7: press F8 on boot, or Win10: start: type msconfig, enter, then boot tab: [x] Safe boot, press enter). It will be more successful more often in Safe Mode, but whether you can get into Safe Mode or not, click Start, type System Restore, press enter. (You may have to go to System Properties: System Protection tab, then System Restore.) When you restore to a previous restore point, you may find the weirdness to go away. If your problems are due to malware having been installed, you may have to choose restore points further and further back in your restore point history until you get back to before the malware, then the badness goes away. System Restore does not affect your data, only the Windows files.
