When you turn the computer on instead of hitting F8 to get into safe mode hit F11 to begin recovery from the recovery partition. (as soon as the computer begins to boot up)

If your monitor only works in safe mode, try to reinstall your video card driver while in safe mode.

Hope this helps.

\windows\system32\kdcom.dll Missing or corrupt Kernel debugger


Try tapping F8 at bootup to enter safe mode, read your manual to see if you have a recovery partition on your HDD. You didn't post the model so I have no clue.

If you can enter safe mode you need to try system restore, not last good know configuration.

If you see last know config on your screen, then you should also see safe mode.

So you need to run in safe mode, and run system restore, or run the recovery mode if you have a recovery partition on the HDD.

If none of these work, then you only have three options, go to Avira.com, download the rescue disk, burn it to a CD and run it in DOS, this is before windows boots. Now if malware corrupted the DLL, Avira will kill it, but there is a chance it can't clean it and will destroy the files,DLL, and windows won't boot. So now you have to do below.

The other option is you need to download windows, what ever version you have, if you have win 7 home 32bit, then you have to download it, and burn it to a DVD. Then try a repair, if a repair does not work then you need to reinstall windows, and then install all the drivers like, (chipset, video, sound, lan, wifi)

This option, you can contact Acer and see if they have a recovery disk for you.

Good luck.

Operating system not found.


Now, this is a real embarassing fact of Sony computers. The error can occur even in out of box peice. Reset BIOS to default values, check if the computer is booting to Windows in safe mode and restore if yes. You can acess the safe mode by pressing the F8 key. If the issue persists, perform a system recovery using the recovery partition. You can acess the recovery partition by pressing the F10 key at startup. Selcet the Restore C drive option top recovery computer to its factory settings. If you want to backup and important data from the hard disk, use the rescue data feature option from the VAIO Care recovery partition. I could provide you with a more precise and direct article link if provided with the exact operating system and model # information.

How can I access the recovery partition on the hard drive? (note: F8 does not work and 0 does not work, but the partition exists)


I've found that the way to access the recovery partition on Toshiba's changes very frequently between different models and different years. If you have a partition the best solution would be to boot into Windows and create recovery discs with Toshiba's recovery utility, so if for some reason in the future something happens you have the discs. I believe you can use that same utility within Windows to restore your computer. If for some reason you can't log into normal mode, you can try doing this in safe mode. If Windows doesn't seem to work at all, I will need the model number and I will try to do a little research. Hope this helps!

My sony vaio laptop is always hang 5 to 7 mins. but mouse pointer is still moving. all application im working are stuck a few minutes. what are the possible solution for this problem. i do reformat but...


Please backup the data by logging in to Safe Mode, please restart and start pressing F8 key to select Safe Mode then re-install the Windows 7 Operating System using the Recovery Disc or recovery Partition of the Hard Drive. The Recovery Partition can be accessed by restarting the computer and try pressing F10 Key. The Windows XP Operating System is displaying an error because it does not have SATA Driver to detect the Hard Drive. As Windows 7 has it, you can re-install it from recovery partition.

Key note book vaio cr failed to start because some recent hardware or software change might have screwed it up, any way to solve ? Without a windows installation disc?


Hi kevin_yomama,

This issue may occur due to any Software or Hardware changes in the Computer. Restoring the Computer to an earlier date when the Computer was working correctly should fix the issue. However, it is required to restore the Computer in the Safe Mode.

Please restart the Computer, press and hold the F8 key to access the Safe Mode. Once you are there in Safe Mode, please click All Programs, Accessores, System Tools and System Restore. This will open the System Restore window, there, please select a date when the Computer was working correctly. Performing the System Restore to an earlier date should fix the issue.

If the issue still perists even after performing the System Restore in the Computer, you will need to perform the System Recovery in the Computer. Your Computer is shipped with a recovery partition which is present in the hidden part of the Hard Drive. You can use the Recovery Partition to re-install the Operating System in the Computer. Performing the System Recovery using the Recovery Partition will erase all the User Data in the Computer.

To access the Recovery Partition, please restart the Computer, press and hold the F10 Key. This will boot the Computer to an Edit Boot Options screen, please press the Enter Key there. This will launch the VAIO Recovery Center. Please select the "Restore C: Drive" option at the VAIO Recovery Center to perform the System Recovery. Performing the System Recovery will re-install the pre-installed Operating System, Drivers and Applications to restore the Computer to the factory settings.

Good Luck!

Please let me know if you have any further questions or require any further assistance.

Thank you for using FixYa.

If the computer is brand new, you can try exchanging the notebook with a new one.

How to get to recovery partition when booting up HP Pavillion MX


The same problem happened to me today on my hp Pavillion a1600n.
Try pressing the F10 key as the computer is powering on. This may allow the computer to access the recovery partition on the hard disk. If you get that far, then you can restore the user partition from the recovery partition. If it is like the a1600n, then you can do a restore of all the content and either leave your own data files intact, or, have it reformat the user partition and then you WILL have to restore all the data files. In either case, you will likely need to reinstall any applications that were added AFTER you got the PC. (Or, in my case, some apps were still kinda working...).

If F10 does not work, you may be able to create a PC Recovery Tools CD from a different hp XP machine, and boot that CD. During part of that boot up process you may get the opportunity to run the Recovery program.

Hope that helps!
