Question about Computers & Internet
I recenty tried to restore my advent T9400 PC back to it's original factory settings. I placed in the cd as usual and waited until the 'R' for recovery appeared. Halfway through the whole system froze and shut down. When I went to restart the computer to try again and the 'R' for recovery option appeared, I was advised by a friend to press control and backspace to get the settings to appear. I did this and think I chose option 6. Since this my PC when booted up will now go onto the black screen with the white writing, then gets as far as ''Verifying DMI pool data....Boot from CD: then it freezes at this point. I have tried this both with and without a CD in the DVD drive and get the same result. I cannot get past this point at all and no buttons will work. Please please help. Thank you sooooo much.
What operating system are you using? If its windows xp and you are using your factory restore discs, you might want to try using a normal windows xp disc and doing a fresh install. Another option is that your hard drive is bad or is going bad. I would download the ultimate boot cd and run seatools off the ubcd. Check your hard drive to see if its still ok.
