Internet would not work and then whole system froze. Powered off my holding start up button. Now everytime I try to cut it on it is stuck on black compaq screen. Have tried pressing esc, f1 and f8, nothing happens. Have flicked red button on the back several times, still nothing. Just saved several dox and do not want to do a master reset. What can I do to fix this?!

Not too much.It seems you had a corrupt HD do to a virus or other issues.depends on your OS you can try to get some "boot files" in order to try to boot back your PC. After that if you cant do it you will need to re-install your OS.

Worked one day and froze up and cut off the next day

You may have to reset it. With the device turned off, press and hold the volume down button, and then briefly press the power button. - Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the volume down button. - Press volume down to select clear storage, and then press power. - Press volume up to start the factory reset.

Screen froze

It could be a couple of things. Did you try the ALT F4 combo? Also have you tried to press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Otherwise you could wait for the power to run out then start it. I believe wither F10 or F2 will bring you to your setting screen. Select reset to default settings. In doing this you won't loose any information. That might help. Otherwise it sounds like a hard-drive problem.

I had same problem with mine found out to do a hard reset. Make sure power is turned off. Then while holding volume down button hold power button at same time until you get factory reset screen. Use Volume up/down button to navigate and use power button to select option. You will lose everything as it is a factory reset, but know way around this, that I am aware of. Hope this Helps and Good Luck.

Try updating your system the manual way:

recovery menu 'safe mode'.

Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.

It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Perform 6, "system update."

If this doesn't work, when your system froze and you powered it down, you may have corrupted your Hard Drive (Hard Disk). You will need to replace it.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..

You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

When you hit F2 it takes you to the BIOS menu, and that's where you should go and while in there go to Boot, and using arrow keys select the one that says IDE WDC and move it with F6 to position 1. Then press F10 and select Yes. Restart and it should work. Post back if still having trouble.

My iPod froze, and says it is recovery mode.

try a reset

To reset your iPod:
  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
  • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
  • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep

Is it still in recovery mode?
