Please restart your computer and keep tapping F8 key, you should see a screen which while give you options to choose like normal mode, safe mode etc. In that screen please use your up and down arrow key to choose last known good configuration and hit enter.


This should take your computer back to the previous settings when your computer is working fine.

Note: if you have allready tried to go to safe and were able to go to safe mode then do not choose this method.

If you can go to safe mode use system restore (steps vary from windows version to version). Restore you computer's settings to a previous setting (Steps for XP - Start - Programs (or all programs) accessores - system tools and click on system restore and follow the onscreen instructions to restore your computer settings to a day or 2 previous to installig the new software.

Note: this system restore does not destroy your data (your pictures and files) but you will loose the new softwares installed between today and the day you choose.

I have a gateway nv5470u,it picked up virurs and went blank,,it would not come on,then one day i hit the turn on button,it come on a blank screen with a white line uptop to the lleft...


That means that the hard drive is not detected properly on the computer.
Start the computer and keep tapping F2.
You will get a setup utility.
Press F9 and hit ENTER.
Press F10 and hit ENTER.
Now restart the computer.
If u still have the blinking cursor on that black screen, u need to check your hard drive.
If u are gettng some other error in windows or just a black screen, try doing recovery.
Recovery will wipe off all your datas in the computer.
For doing it, keep tapping Alt+F10 as soon as u turn on the computer.
If u are succesful, it will give a message that windows is loading files.
Just follow the prompts.

Keep me posted on the status of the issue.
If that helps, dont forget to rate me.

I have a netbook. the product name is aspire one and the manifacturer os Acer. when i turn the laptop on it turns on but then it stays in a black screen. what do i do? im working on a paper that i have to...


Keep tapping F8 once u press teh power button to turn on your computer.
No select safemode with networking.
Once you get the desktop, save your paper which u were working on to a flash drive or to your email.
Since you didnt specify the OS, i wont be able to give u a details info on doing system restore.
Anyways the next step is system restore to a date on which the computer was working fine.
If that doesnt help, try tapping Alt+F10 instead of the F8 key to start system recovery to reset the computer back to the factory settings, however u will lose all your datas which u put in.

If u can tell me the OS, i can tell u how to start system restore.

Keep me posted on the status of the issue.

What you need to do is restart your computer. Your computer will run its system checks and then it will go to a black screen with a blue banner on top saying dell. (the banner is only about a half an inch wide) Quickly hold Ctrl and press F9. your computer will go to a different screen and will give you and option to restore you computer. click this option and follow the steps.
NOTE once factory reset you will lose all information and settings so save everything you want to keep on seperate disks. hope this helps.

Hi,
Re-boot, keep tapping F8 while booting,

Or, reboot, tapping F8, choose safe mode this time,
let it boot up, system restore once booted.
choose date before updates,
Then find update problems
Install one update at a time, to find the problem one,
Trouble-shoot the update problem when you find it.
