What kind of PC is it?
Laptop/ Desktop
Company that manufactured?
If it has a windows Product code ( a microsoft sticker with a serial #) then you can just borrow a copy of windows and use your serial number for instalation

Depends on the version of windows you are using

On startup, an error is displayed that 510-splash screen corrupt" i can not even start windows or boot from cd until screen is visible. i have want to restore / fix the problem with or without cd. i...


You can fix this by popping in your windows disc and booting.You could repair the whole installation which would take 45 mins, or use the recovery console to fix the files within a few mins.



Repairing through recovery console:

> Boot form cd
> Enter recovery console
> Enter your password for windows
> Type and enter copy F:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ assuming f is your cd drive letter
> Type and enter copy F:\i386\ntldr c:\
> Type and enter fixmbr, yes to agree
> Type and agree to fixboot
> Type exit to get out of the console and exit the installation and reboot. The above should fix files needed to boot.

I have a toshiba satelite laptop a blue screen appears after i try to log in or log into a safe mode or try to repair its vista


You need to boot from a vista disk. or download the vista recovery disk from microsoft and see if it will repair it. something has corrupt the system files. use the repair from the vista cd not the start up repair from the vista boot screen. if it says it cant find a problem then use the system restore points to restore to a time when it worked. you can acces these from the vista cd after it tries to do start u prepair without having to log into vista.

Inactive logon initialization failure...how do I fix it? tried saf mode, booting fron backup eexternal hard drive. window : Logon Process Initialization failure


I am not so sure which Version of Microsoft windows operating system is installed on your computer, but I would assume myself as Windows Vista, since this is a known issue with Windows Vista, (if my assumption is wrong, let me know so that I can help you better).

This happens when .man (.manifest) file in the windows is corrupted or infected by virus. In most cases, after installing multiple antiviruses on a system or after a virus scan.

First of, you need to try with the windows vista recovery disk. I hope you still have one or if you don't have one, download the Windows Vista Recovery ISO from here (click here) [let me know if you have problem]. After the download is completed, burn it on a dvd. If you would burn the DVD or the CD on a Windows Vista or win 7 system, simply right click the ISO file and select "Burn Disc Image" or etc... That'll create the bootable disk automatically, or if you are burning the Disk on Windows XP, you'll can do it with Nero or Roxio or ISO burner, etc.. Once everything is ready, pop in the Disk in the CD/DVD drive and select the First options from CD-Rom in the Bios Settings or simply boot up and keep tapping the F8 and select "Restore...." or "Repair...." etc.. If restore doesn't fix or is not accessible, you can try the "Repair.. and so on. I hope you know how to do all these, if you have problem, please don't forget to let me know with all your system's details, otherwise it's not possible to give you specific detailed instructions.

There's another options, this is only to recover your files and you'll need to reinstall the windows (I don't recommend installing over the current installed o.s. but a new install after the partition is formated). You can use Windows Live Cd (Xp or Vista or 7, if the current install o.s. is xp, then use XP Live Cd and so on..), there are numbers of torrents seeding on the net, if you need one, i'll help you download after I am confirmed. You have to use the Live Cd to boot your system as you boot up the windows normally, but in reality it, the o.s. is installed on the Cd and at least you'll be able to access the files on your computer so that you can transfer them to other computer. The features and functionality of the Live Cd may have few restrictions, but definitely, to restore or to save your files, this is the best option.

Another Live Cd, not exactly windows, but Ubuntu Live Cd, I hope you heard about Linux, there are many download iso files available online, I'll help you get them (Linux/Ubuntu is a freeware) if you need.

All these are the options you can do for now. Please note that if you have critical and important data on your computer, you must restore no matter what, else you may loose, Recovery softwares are not 100%, so please be careful. This is not a simple task, but now it's a must to do to get your system worked....:-)
Let me know when you are done or if you have problem doing all these, but please with more details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have the dreaded ''blue screen of death'' but can use my safe mode for networking. help????


What operating system are you running?

Most blue screens are caused by a hardware issue. If your happy to do so, strip your PC down to the bare basics. Remove all RAM apart from one module, and PCI cards except graphics and remove mouse and keyboard.

If it now boots up OK, you know one of the things have disconnected was causing the problem! Plug each one in one by one. Also, you can try Fixing the master boot record, or booting from your Windows CD and using the repair functions

Safemode continues to reload - no options work.


If you boot to a Windows installation disk and choose the Repair Option and press "R" for it, you may be able to fix your current installation without losing anything.

if you contact e-machines they will send you a restore cd,last i knew they were about $10.00.

Presario SR1123WM won't restore to factory


If Compaq doesn't have one no one else will either.
  Have you tried the recover clean up utility? Available as a download (link below)  
My guess is that if it will not restore something is wrong with the hard drive. Have you contacted HP to ask them what it means? 
Another option is to buy and install windows and download the drivers from Compaq/HP.Same link
