Try to do a clean reinstall of windows

if that does not work than when the comp starts up (after the BIOS tests) press F8 (or F5, i dont remember with one is for XP(i presume this is the OS ! if not ..do the same anyway !)) and try selecting VGA mode - the problem might be do to video drivers, or Safe mode ... log in as Administrator, and try to check if the hard drive is ok, if the computers drivers are installed ...etc ...

try these fore now and give more details if is still not loading. ....

Computer turns on and after its done showing loading bar a blue screen appears . the computer then restarts with a black screen showing start windows normal, or startup repair. i chose startup repair


Try running the Check Disk Utiltiy.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

My compaq will start up saying loading files..then it starts to look like its loading up by showing the green bar moving across the screen...then after that nothing but a blank screen...the lights are...


before windows starts press f8 a couple of times to get into safemode.
if windows doesn't load then you probably have to reinstall windows.
If windows does start, try going into msconfig. Go to Start - Run then type in msconfig. click on the startup tab & try to remove some of the start up programs to see if thats the problem.

Trying to reformat my PC but can't get into BIOS set up.


Hey,

Seems the screen is slow to start up, right after pressing the power button, keep tapping on f1 or f10 untill the bios screen or something else comes up. that will definitely get you into the bios and dont mind if the computer starts to beep, slow down a little and keep tapping.

Thanks,
Ekse

Acer aspire 3000 dropped on floor. Random startup events


theres a good chance that the hard drive platletes and parking head have been damaged, although this is not a huge problem to replace, as long as your screen is working ok, then it is worth replacing. you can access it on the underside of the casing, in the largest compartment, remove all screws and the hard drive will be held in with more screws.
