When your computer starts up and asks which mode you would like to start in instead of selecting safe mode select "restore" to restore to a previous version of windows. If your computer does not display this try clicking hotkeys (varies by keyboard) DELETE or F8 etc to pull up the options menu. If you have your windows CD you can insert this into your CD drive and start your computer, it will give you the option to restore it to an earlier state.

Hello,

You mentioned it boot in safe mode, if it's showing the taskbar where the start button is, then do the system restore. Click start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore. Select the previous date that the laptop was working fine the laptop will restart by itself once done. If this process does not resolve the issue, do system recovery (reformat) using the recovery disc that came with the laptop.

goodluck.

Hi my acer lap top is in safe mode and wont start if i buy a fix it cd will this work thanks alicia


Since you can boot in safe mode, teh you should try using the SYSTEM RESTORE to take it back to the day the problem started, try that first.
For example of XP: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/systemrestore.mspx

Compact lap top.turns on dos screen comes on cant start in any modes,if left alone windows ex sign comes on but 5 sec later goes back to dos......try to install ex again with ex cd,it loads all programs...


If the hard drive does not spin up and the drive light doesn't illuminate during power-up, check the following:

* Make sure the hard drive power connector and ribbon cable are connected.
* Swap the hard drive.

Check the Bios settings and see if the hard drive is recognized as an boot device.

I had similar problem in my office once and i had to change the hard disc out.It always indicates an failed hard disc.

A hard disc which has failed can be identified physically by noise when you shake it slightly..

On my lap top i receive message-"error loading operating system"


Trying booting into safe mode by pressing F8 while the computer is booting up.
Choose safe mode with the arrow keys and see if it boots that way.

You almost certainly have a virus. If you can't even get into safe mode the easiest way to fix it is remove the hard drive and back up any files on it with a different computer, then re-install Windows on the original drive.

You can try booting from your Windows XP installation disk and using the recovery console there to repair your installation. That's not too hard and I would say works 30% of the time.

Lap top wont boot up past the windows screen


This generally indicates that a sector in the hard drive has failed, and the hard drive will need to be replaced. With a bad sector the drive reads to the point of the bad sector and past the bad sector, but can't put the info together, so it tries to boot, but can't. Unfortunately, your only option is replacing the hard drive.
