System will not load, keeps restarting ,will not go into safe mode

My compaq presario will not load windows xp. I have tried to rstart it in safe mode but it will only begin to go into safe then restarts at the screen where you have safe mode, safe mode with networking,safe mode with comand prompt or start windows . I can't think of what is the cause of the problem. My brother was on the computer wen it froze,then rebooted its own a he said. I can't figure out the cause except maybe he has some how corrupted my verision of windows. Anyone have a clue whats going on?

It may be cycling, when the system reboots, press and hold the power button, to completely switch off, then turn back on as normal

Why won't my compaq presario 1250 load windows?


1 - You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


2 - Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

My Comoaq presario SR5605F has a black screen with the cursor intact. It happened right after I did a system restore. Can u give me a solution ?


AS YOU ON THE SYSTEM AND EVEN BEFORE WINDOWS STARTS KEEP PRESSING THE F8 KEY CONTINUEOUSLY. A MENU WILL APPEAR. SELECT SAFE MODE AND ENTER. WINDOWS WILL LOAD IN SAFE MODE. THIS WILL SOLVE SOME OF YOUR PROBLEMS. NOW RESTART THE SYSTEM IN NORMAL MODE.

IF THIS DOES NOT WORK SELECT "LOAD WINDOWS WITH LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION " AND THEN RESTART. THIS WILL SURELY SORT OUT YOUR PROBLEM.


PLS REPLY OR COMMENT. THANKS

Laptop keeps restarting


  1. See if you can start in Safe Mode (hit F8 before Windows loads - best way is to keep tapping F8 after you power it on. You should get a menu with "start in Safe Mode" as an option.
  2. Once booted in safe mode go to Control Panel, System, Advanced, ;Startup and recovery'.
  3. Click the Settings button and remove the tick from the "Automatically Restart" box.
  4. Click all the OK's to get back to Control Panel.
  5. Reboot as normal and the system should display an error code. Post that error code here and we can have a look at it.

Windows xp will not load on my computer....


It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

Start Normally (black screen with options)keeps re-loading itself


If you can't get into windows normally or into safe mode to try to restore the system back to a date when it worked properly then you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and start the system from scratch.

MY COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000 WILL NOT OPEN WINDOWS XP.


Does your desktop comeup and give any time before it shutdowns, say 1 minute or something like that,
You can log into safe mode and do system restore by pressing F8 once you power on the computer, but you need to keep on pressing till you see the safe mode option.

Hp compaq presario v3000 is not loding the OS, show an error


  • as you boot the computer, start tapping the F8 keys
  • From the boot menu, select Safe Mode
If this seems to work, you can try restoring the computer to an earlier point from Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
If Safe Mode also fails to load, you would have to check your disk for errors or you may have to install XP all over again.
Please get back, if you need any further help.

what you are describing is the blue screen of death, meaning theres a hardware or software problem, try to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore, if that doesn't work use your XP cd, let it load the drivers and the ask it to fix the existing XP installation, anything that you have saved in my documents should be safe and the problem should be solved. If the blue screen reappears then you have a hardware problem
