My ps4 slim keeps booting into safe mode and making the ejecting disc sound, does anyone know a fix?

It was working fine this morning, now when i try and turn it on it doesn't do anything. I have to insert a disc to power it on and once it finally boots up, it boots up into a safe mode loop. I've tried to rebuild the database, and updating the software through lan cable and usb and it still doesn't help.

Power comes on but shut back off

Is it a PS4? Have you tried to boot it into safe mode? You can boot the Ps4 into safe mode by holding the power button for 8 seconds.

If you can give me a little more info... is the light on the console slowly blinking?

My ps4 is ejecting disks and will only start to safe mode.

Try starting up your computer in the safe mode and then do a system restor to a much earlier time. Ha s worked for me.

My vaio turns on but wont boot up model is a vgnnr17g


Try booting it up to safe mode. Just keep tapping F8 to go to the options where you can select safe mode. After that, use your keyboard to select safe mode. If it goes to safe mode, restore it to a date when your computer was still working fine.

To do the system restore, do the following:

Start or pearl button (click) > Accessories > system tools > system restore .

If you can't boot via F8, then use the Operating System's Disc that came with your computer when you bought it. Turn on your computer with the disc inside it. Follow the onscreen instructions and do a repair in the operating system.

I hope this helps.

Acer aspire laptop recovery disc not working

I have never had any success with recovery discs and I don't know anyone who has. A recovery disc should not erase the hard drive but should repair the original software if it becomes too damaged to operate.

I am not an expert but if Windows thinks the software is compromised it provides you with the option of starting in safe mode and I think that is the only time it is possible to access safe mode. Windows has to be almost working in order to offer a safe mode option.

You didn't say how old the laptop is but I expect it is well out of warranty as Windows 7 is now considered old and outdated. I personally would not buy a new computer unless it was supplied with the official systems disc or was very, very cheap.

There is a lot of things computer boffins can do to recover and repair Windows but you would find their services much more expensive than a Windows 7 disc. Formatting the drive and reloading everything is by far the best option for ordinary folk - if your problem is solely a saftware problem and not hardware related.

If you have to save money why not try the Linux operating system that is completely free...

My ps3 works and runs just fine, except it doesnt read blurays/games.. when i put a game in it waits about 15 seconds then makes a loud noise kind of like a click sound and similar to the sound it makes...

Well it sounds like the laser in your PS3 went out. I would get the model number, and the size of the HD and check around your town. Most towns have somewhere where you can take them to be tested and fixed. If not, then you will have to send your system off to Sony for repair.

Grey Screen Apple Start up issue

It appears there may be a possible startup item or issue with your firmware, which may be causing this issue, so I am going to provide some procedures in order to help you resolve this gray screen issue. But first, let me help you remove that disc first:

font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} font.f2 {font: 14.0px Myriad Pro} Procedure #1 - Ejecting CD from drive
Here are some steps I recommend you try to resolve the issue with the disc not ejecting properly

• Reboot your Mac
• Hold down your Mouse button(s) prior to the Apple Chime
• Keep holding the mouse button down while your Mac boots up
• The disc should eject before you reach your Desktop
• When it does, simply release your mouse buttons.
If this does not help resolve ejecting the disc in your Macbook's drive, you are going to have to take more of a command-line approach:

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} -EJECTING DISC USING TERMINAL-

From your Desktop:
•Click anywhere on a blank space on your desktop. Now you should see Finder listed near the Apple menu icon.

• From the Finder menu, click on Go, then Utilities from the
drop-down menu. This will take you to your Utilities folder.

• Locate and open the Terminal utility
• At prompt, type: drutil eject

• Now
press the Return key on your keyboard

(NOTE: If you have a CD/DVD drive with a tray, type: drutil tray open press the Return key on your keyboard )en
• This command line should eject the disc from the drive, unless there are mechanical issues with the drive within your Macbook.
At this point the disc should be ejected from your Macbook. If this is the case, then I will now need to direct you back to Safe Boot mode, but with a little twist, from what you may have tried when you last when to Safe Mode:

I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't remove a possible folder(s) that may be affecting your Mac's start up function.

Try these steps:
• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while.
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)
• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment the only difference is certain start up items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

Post back to me, if these particular Safeboot procedure does not help. Thanks!

Gateway desktop xp starts then flashes blue screen for split seco

Sometimes they make the recovery disk with windows on it, but not the programs that start windows during the boot up phase. One of the three main files that boots into windows is corrputed or your Master Boot Record is missing. There are two options you can try without the OS disc so lets see if one of those will work: 1) boot up and press F8 to enter safe mode. Once in safe mode sometimes you can also get into window because just the minimum of the program is loaded. F8 Safe Mode>in windows>click start>accesories>system tools>system restore. It will allow you to restore your computer to a prior date before you have problems. 2)if that don;'t work then F8 safe mode and while in safe mode choose Last Known Configuration. Kinda works the same way as restoe but you don't have to be in windows to do it. If those don't work then get your hands on a windows xp disc, anyone's will do, don't have to be yours. Let me know how it goes.
Rate this solution. You can also find out about this at>help and support>type in Windows XP boot disk in the search engine.If those don't work let me know and we'll move on to phase II.

Toshiba M115-3094 start up problems

Okay it sounds like you need to reinstall windows. However, doing so will erase everything on your hard drive. So we need to get that data off your hard drive. You can do this either by purchasing an internal hard drive to usb cable and hooking it up to another computer or by booting with a bootable linux distro, connecting a flash drive and copying the info over that way. Once you have the data safe, you can try booting from your XP disc and try the repair option; this will remove the windows files and leave your data in tact but you should really back it up first.

Also you may want to run a chkdsk on the drive; that may help solve the problem.
