It sounds like your hard drive is crashing. You should run diagnostics. You can find out what manufacture makes your hardrive by looking at the label. It appears to me that the harddrive is accessible through a door on the bottom of the laptop underneath where your right palm would sit if you were typing. There are harddrive diagnostics listed by manufacturer at the URL below. http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 If the harddrive test fails you should replace the harddrive. Andy TechSack.com

Configuring updates screen


Try booting up in Safe Mode and see what happens.

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 option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it boots up ok, then do a restart into your normal windows mode.


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.

When I turn on my emachines t3265 desktop computer, it freezes at the logo, and does not proceed to Windows so I can log on. What is the likely problem, and how can I fix it?


Turn it on.
Hit the ESCAPE (or TAB) key to replace that colourful logo with the technical details of the computer's POST (Power On Self Test) messages. Look for any messages, such as "unable to boot from disk drive" or "disk-drive not detected". Also, remove any CD/DVD media from the CD/DVD drive. Also, remove any 3.5-inch diskette, and disconnect any USB memory-sticks BEFORE you turn it on.

When I turn my mini on, I get to the Windows welcome screen and it stops there. Is there anything I can do?


Try booting the laptop up in safe mode. Upon booting up press the F8 key until it opens up an option for safe mode. If you then do get the laptop to load up to windows go into the My Computer and right click on the hard drice icon and go down to properties. You will then click on the Tools tab and then run the Check Disk option. It will ask you to reboot the laptop so it can run the check disk. Hopefully this will fix the issue. If for some reason it doesnt go back into safe mode and scan your laptop for any possible infections with your anti virus.

Best of luck...
Have a Happy and Safe Holiday Season..

Gateway/vista black screen with no ctrl+alt+del but a nice cursor


Try this, before it boots up and just after in posts press F8, it should bring up a page where you can choose your boot option, choose "Safe Mode", if the computer does boot to safe mode there are a few steps you can do to remedy this.

First goto my computer, c:drive/windows and scroll down to a folder called prefetch open the folder, highlight everything in that folder by left clicking once on one of the icons and holding control(ctrl) then pressing A once everything is highlighted hold down the shift key and press delete, everything should now be gone, exit out of all the windows do a disk clean up, my computer right click on c:drive (your main drive) and click on disk cleanup tick all boxes and then click ok to start deleting the temp files. once finished reboot mechines and leave it to boot up. if you still are having problems or it wont boot up into safe mode post back. cheers.

My Dell Optiplex 17OL Computer wont start up


First try to log it on a safe mode. Just reset it once or twice. When screen list safe mode, safe mode with networking,.... Lask known configuration. Scroll to safe mode and click. Wait till your desktop appears. Then restart. If this doesn't work check the hardware connections of your desktop PC most importantly the RAM and HDD. If this doesn't work again reinstall your windows XP operating System Installer.
