Hi histojunkie,

If your system wont boot up properly, it might caused by a corrupted windows operating system files. There are ways on how to correct the problem, either you restore the system using the windows system restore or reinstall the whole operating system again. Here are additional steps that you may apply on how to perform a system restore. Please follow the steps below.

1. Turn the computer on or just restart the computer.

2. After switching on the computer, start tapping the F8 key. "Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu" will appears. If you're not able to do so try restarting the computer and try again.

3. Now select the "Safemode Option".

4. Ensure that you press the enter button to select it. Computer will then begin to start in safemode.

5. Now click [Start] point to [All programs] go to [Accessories Folder] then [System tools] and click "System Restore".

6. On the "Welcome system restore" page, click the "Restore my computer to an earlier time" option then click next.

7. On the "Select a Restore Point page", click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
--> A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.

When i turn on my computer it starts to boot up then goes to microsoft windows xp.the next screen is a blu one thats says avg install path :c:\program files\avg\avg2012


See if you can uninstall AVG by booting up into Safe Mode.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Uninstall AVG then reboot and see if you are ok. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus program.


If you still get the blue screen, Try running the Check Disk Utility.



To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. 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 when the options appear.

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

I have a emachine w3619, i let my son use it and he changed the login password and cant remember it. and i cant figure out how to get into my computor. how do i go about getting into my computor


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

How di get my computor out of safe mode


If you turn off your computer incorrectly - by just turning off the power switch or unplugging it, Windows senses and remembers this. Then, the next time you start your computer Windows loads in safe mode.

To prevent this, be sure to shut down your PC properly by clicking on Start, Turn off Computer, and Turn Off. The next time you start your computer Windows should load normally .

Gateway desktop xp starts then flashes blue screen for split seco


Sometimes they make the recovery disk with windows on it, but not the programs that start windows during the boot up phase. One of the three main files that boots into windows is corrputed or your Master Boot Record is missing. There are two options you can try without the OS disc so lets see if one of those will work: 1) boot up and press F8 to enter safe mode. Once in safe mode sometimes you can also get into window because just the minimum of the program is loaded. F8 Safe Mode>in windows>click start>accesories>system tools>system restore. It will allow you to restore your computer to a prior date before you have problems. 2)if that don;'t work then F8 safe mode and while in safe mode choose Last Known Configuration. Kinda works the same way as restoe but you don't have to be in windows to do it. If those don't work then get your hands on a windows xp disc, anyone's will do, don't have to be yours. Let me know how it goes.
Rate this solution. You can also find out about this at support.microsoft.com>help and support>type in Windows XP boot disk in the search engine.If those don't work let me know and we'll move on to phase II.

Cant log in window


This sounds like a spyware/virus issue to me.
Try and start the computer in safe mode.

Simply power off the computer, turn it back on and tap the "F9" button repeatedly, until a prompt comes up.

Once this prompt comes up select "start windows in safe mode"

This is assuming you're running Windows XP or newer.

On/Off problems


It sound as if there is a system file error. If you havent already, try booting up in safe mode (F8) on start up and when and if it allows you highlight 'Last known good configuration' and hit enter for a restart. If still nothing you need to insert your windows installation disc and hit enter when prompted. This will run a file installation, but not a format and when the files have installed you will have the choice to install windows or repair; select repair for system file installation.
