Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

When turned on my computer boots only to the E and Windows logo and then to a black and white screen telling me that windows did not start successfully, with a list of choices as to safe or normal booting. None of the choices work, and it continues to repeat the process of trying to reboot followed by the black and white screen again. The Restore Disks I have will not work because the computer tells me my DVD/CD player is not a CD player and I should remove disk. I tried booting with F3 choices and the recovery with F8 . Nothing worked. Is there any hope? Thank You for any attention to this matter.

Recovery CDs can be flaky, so obtain a windows CD, and try a repair with that.

Repair XP

Repair Windows 7

Sometimes to boot off a CD, you need to set the BIOS to boot from cd first.

Good luck!

As much as I hate to say it, you have done almost all the trouble shooting you can. The only other thing is to see about getting an external CD ROM and trying those restore disks. If that doesn't work, then the only choices you would have is either buying a new windows CD or getting a new computer and possibly installing Linux on this one.

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

Computer displays black screen with blinking cursor


Its seems its not booting correctly. Just Insert Windows CD and fix the windows. Another solution is to press (I think) F1 or F11 or F12 (depending on the model) when booting the machine. It will take you to recovery mode. Use it to restore the boot section ONLY.

I have a Aspire 3680 Laptop/Notebook 80GB 14-WXGA Vista HomeBasic 9980286710 PC Notebook. The problem is that when you turn it on it only boots as far as the windows logo screen and then it goes black.


Press the start button then hold down F8 to go to a black screen with writing. Scroll to boot windows to last known good boot (maybe not exact words, but do last known good start) Click that option and windows should boot to the last good start of your computer.

Problem restarting, "press r"


  1. Start the laptop
  2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
  3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
  4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
  5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
It "should" now load normally, if not then..
  1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.
