Hi tracy_laster,

Whats happening is when the the computer boots, first stage goes thru CMOS, second stage loads drivers and starts to look for the operating system. And if it does not find the operating system, then it re-cycles.

Here are some possibilities:

1) Go into your BIOS and set CMOS setting to default. Save settings and reboot. See if this makes a difference. If not, move on to next step.

2) Memory Module - If you have more than one memory module, take one out and reboot the pc., Do this one by one until you discover the culprit. If there is no bad memory module, then move on the the next step.

3) Make sure the cable ribbon or harness is properly inserted on both ends of the cable (one end to the hard drive and one end to the mother board). If you dont find any problem, then next step is important.

4) At this point, your hard drive may be going bad or gone bad. You can try to reformat and install everthing back. But if you dont have the installation or recovery cd then you will need furhter help with data recovery.

Hope these steps help and good luck.

Keyboard jumps up to line just typed


Sounds like you have a sticky up arrow key,or you have a virus on your comp.Try booting in safemode by turning on your computer and tapping the F8 key while booting,then choose safemode.Once you are in Windows,open the program you are using and try your text document again.If it works correctly,you may have a virus.While you are in Safemode,run your virus scanner,then reboot your computer to see if the problem is solved.If it does not fix it,try running System Restore back to before the problem started.Good luck :)

Click on your new user name, type password and hit start, control, add/remove usets and delete old account. Vua La!

Need to know what key is for safemode. computer is not coming on and is stuck in set up is starting services.


Tapping F8 during the initial boot will get you to the menu to choose Safemode, Last know good Config., etc. All Windows OSes are the same in this respect.

If you are stuck in a setup loop, this probably will not work for you. Windows generally would have to have been completely installed before this would work...

My laptop has power but wont boot...please help


hi,

Try to boot you computer to safemode, turn off computer then turn it back on then keep on tapping F8, then choose safemode, if youre able to boot to safemode, do system restore going back to the time that its properly working, click start > all programs > accesories> system tools > system restore then pick a date when you think that its properly working..

If its not able to boot to safemode, you will need to reinstall the operating system using the recovery disc that came with the computer.


Hope this will help... Please rate...
