Windows is severely corrupted, beyond repair. You will have to reinstall it using the recovery disk that came with it when you bought it.

this sounds like a hardware or driver issue
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue



test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) Sata make sure they have dust free secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust


if you remove the graphics card to clean the socket replace it

restart the computer the found new hardware wizard should activate


or you might try


Restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press usually the Delete or F2 to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

My emachine laptop has a virus. When you turn it on it goes to black screen with the option to start recovery mangement or start windows.When pressing either,it goes to black screen for a little bit then...


You may have files that you want to keep that you saved on your hard drive, but if you haven't backed them up then you will have to lose them because the only thing you can do to fix this is use the factory recovery disk which will wipe your hard drive clean.Just put the disc into the disc tray and you should get an option to start the recovery disc when you turn on the computer, it will tell you to press a key to start it which might be f3 or something different, I'm am not sure what key but when you have done that you should be able to start the recovery and wipe the hard drive clean and it should solve your problem

My laptop start but it doesnot reach windw after that black screen


It sounds as if you have a boot error in your start up sequence. Maybe caused by a hard drive error or corrupt file.
When the system is booting up press function key F8
Hope fully it will give you the option from there to load in safe mode. If it does, windows can repair itself. If not, you may need a boot disk to start up your system and then attempt to repair the errors.
Hope this helps.

Do not start up, black screen


Hello,

I'll asume something for this one it might help. Make sure your laptop is completely turned off [No fans turn, screen black, no hard drive light]. When you then press the power button, immediately keep pressing the F8 button on your keyboard. It should then actually display two options after a while :

*Delete restore/resume point and start windows
*Resume restore/resume point

Select 'Delete restore point' and the unit should boot up fine again.

I had a unit that was basically turbo-booting into windows, but the restore point was corrupt and it always seemed it had a 'blank screen' problem.

You can also try to access the BIOS by pressing F2 as soon as the unit starts up to see if you can actually access the BIOS.

If that all doesn't help I suggest reseating RAM.

Computer shows invalid system disc,wont let me do anything else


This might be simple.
Assuming your son didn't make any internal changes to your computer. The problem may be that he changed your boot sequence to boot to floppy or CD instead of the Hard Drive.
Do the following:

As your computer is starting you will briefly have the option to hit F8 (I think F8 Might be another) for "start up menu or options".
This will take you to a screen of text where following the on screen text areas and moving the curser with the keyboard arrows and enter or escape check your boot sequence (the order of where your computer is to look for start up information)

It should read as follows:
#1 HDD1 (this text may vary)
#2 CDROM drive
#3 FLOPPY (if you have one) or other removable drive

If your son changed this and forgot to it back your computer may be trying to get start up information from a CD or Floppy instead of your hard drive.

Once you've changed this (assuming you needed to change it) following the instructions use the key to "save changes and exit"
Your computer should now boot up correctly.

Let me know if this helps

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

This is either an operating system failure or hard drive failure. Start by reloading a fresh operating system (Vista) with your recovery or operating system disc. If you have any problems during or after the install, then it's the hard drive and will need to be replaced.
