    I have a similar problem. While playing an online game, I got a screen that said "Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to protect your computer ". Could it also be the hard drive?

This is most likely going to be a failed hard drive. Since it won't load the system, by general rule, If the hard drive won't format, or if you have any issues during or after the set up of a new operating system, then the hard drive is shot, and needs replaced. Replace the drive and you should be just fine.

My VAIO Computer Freezes When Turned On


A few internal diagnostic tools get run before the OS loads and im thinking that perhaps the Master boot record (the place the computer looks for the OS to load) is damaged, so yes a reinstall may possibly fix that, but perhaps the HDD is getting on (you did mention age) and the platters and the read write head within the hard drive are probably near then end of their life so.
  • Reinstall the Operating System and see if that takes away the issue or
  • If the problems still occurs i recommend buying a brand new hard drive.
Im positive one of these is the reason for the freezing and long boot.

When you turn on the lap top it says operating system not found. I put recovery disk 1/3 in and it loads windows files. Then a screen pops up and says windows recovery center or repair windows. For more...


Hello,

Do not press on F8. What you need to do is to do a start up repair. Select the option to repair the operating system. Then it will load some files. JUst wait for it to complete the loading process or the repair. It will tell if the repair is successful or not. If it doesn't fix the problem, then, you need to install the operating system to your computer. But, remember that operating system re-installation will return your computer to scratch. It will erase everything including the files and programs that you have added in your computer. But, if you don't have anything to lose then do the operating system reisntallation.

Whever i pen my game it shows black screen and say not responding.i need a solution to this problem


Google your game and OS, so if you have COD4 and windows 7 , search for "COD4 windows 7 not loading" or something like that.
One thing that worked for me was to create a new user on the computer, call it games, run all of your games from this user.
Right click on the games .EXE file and run as administrator.
Is the game you are using supportd by your OS?

I have an older model hp laptop. Recently while trying to work in Windows Live, I belive that I removed Windows XP. I cannot find the CD-ROM to re-load this. Can you help? Thank you Debbie


If you have uninstalled your operating system you have to have the cd to reinstall. newer laptops come with built in restore but i am not sure how did u uninstall it if you were just playing with windows live because windows live is just a part of msn or hot mail program for like email or chatting. Make sure it was not really the operating system that you uninstalled and the way to know is if the computer starts up but there are some errors it means it is just a drivers, program or system issue but can be fixed. If it comes with black screen and it says can not find operating system or something along those lines that means no OS. Hope this helps. In any case you need the cd and you can call the manufacturer and ask for replacement.

Windows doesnt load up stays on this black screen


Most probably it is the problem with your hard drive's MBR (master boot record).

First try booting the system from bootable CD or DVD, if that succeeds that will be the sign that everything is ok with your machine but you have problem with your OS (operating system).

Try reformating the hard disk and resintalling Windows or doing system recovery from CDs provided from your vendor.

To get bootable CD with OS, easiest thing to do is to get one of the linux distributions that can be loaded from the CD.
Smallest and simplest is SLAX.

http://www.slax.org/get_slax.php

Burn it on CD and try booting your computer.


Good luck,

Start-up boot


What OS controls the bootloader? Is it linux or Windows? I had the same problem when i deleted ubuntu, the bootloader remains and i cannot boot windows. I then placed the windows CD and loaded recovery console. Im not sure of the command but I think it was "fixMBR" or something similar. Just type help for the commands.

OS Wont load


You need to reinstall operative system, either using recovery disk, or using a generic windows setup disk.
If the computer does not read recovery disk, then it is probably scratched or faulty.
System reinstall is usually done at any computer repair shop for a not too expensive fee.
When hard disk is damaged you often also hear a typical clicking noise, and system stop shortly after post.

Toshiba satellite with windows xp will only show black sreen and wont let windows xp repair


Your description of the symptom shows that your operating system installation has been corrupted. Fastest and easiest way to resolve the Issue using the "Recovery and application disk" (it comes with laptop) to perform full system recovery. I would like to remind you full system recovery will erase everything saved on Hard drive. You can check possible option on http://support.toshiba.com

If you dont have recovery and application disk you get one. You can call Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777

Please post if you need further assitance

Good Luck
