Preferred Solution: Laptop doesn't even load bios anymore

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Laptop doesn't even load bios anymore

Does the laptop have integrated graphics?

If so remove the graphics card and see if you get the splash screen.

Odds are it has something to do with the new card.

My IE8 isn't working, I can browse normally but I can't load pages based on JavaScripts, someone suggested me to post here because it could be Malware, but I doubt that.

I tried to uninstall, delete leftovers, then reinstall Java, Flash, Shockwave for my IE, no dice.

Since today, my computer doesn't load the explorer anymore. I can still turn on Windows Task Manager though, but when I attempt to run explorer.exe, nothing happens.

Prior to this, there have been a variety of issues with my computer. The last successful time I was able to access the explorer, my background had changed to a message saying "WARNING, your computer is currently infected with spyware. All you can do with computer is stored forever..."

Thank you very much for all your help.

Hi, rickcsong!

Judging by this :

"WARNING, your computer is currently infected with spyware. All you can do with computer is stored forever..."

You're infected, no doubt. Spyware is very annoying, and sightly harmful. Please post here making a new thread and refer to this guide when posting, Thank you.

I've owned the sims 2 games ever since they've come out. I own all the expansions packs and they all play well on my new computer. But recently I've been having a problem with loading apartment life. I'll play the game for a couple of weeks then one day I'll try to turn the game on and it won't load. The first time this happened I ended up un installing all my games and then reinstalling them and I played again for weeks. Now it's happened again and I can't do what I did last time because a friend is borrowing my other disks. I click the icon the sims 2 launcher pops up I click play then the disk spins until it stops spinning and I do the process all over again never seeing the game load. What am I doing wrong please help.

Try the other options in this Q&A:

My computer has failed to start up, its power LED, case and processor fans, and the reset button don't work. Is this caused by a motherboard failure? -

http://www.pcbuyerbeware.co.uk/MotherboardProblems.htm#failed

Do the fans work properly?

If they do, also test the RAM with a utility such as Memtest86

Hi,

I encountered some problem with my netbook (Portege M800-10W) after updating BIOS.
The BIOS updating program seems to failed. Then my Netbook automatically restarted and now I can't start my PC anymore.
All the LEDs turns on, but the sreen remain black and after few minutes, the netbook beep 3 times (1 long, 2 short).

How can I restore the BIOS to the previous version (or factory version) ?

Thanks.

Adrien

A:Portege M800 doesn't startup anymore after updating BIOS

I think that error code means there is a Graphical/Video problem. The Mainboard or VGA Board may need replacing, or there may be a loose connection.

I would send the notebook to an ASP for repair.

Have you tried booting into safe mode yet?

When you turn the computer on repeatedly press the F8 key until a menu pops up with options. Towards the bottom there is an option that states "Disable automatic reboot on system failure" highlight this option and press enter, your computer should reboot and if it blue screens could you please post the exact error code you are getting?

Then I come back and when I go to turn on my laptop there is nothing. I tried hard reseting it but it didn't respond at all. The charging led doesn't even come on anymore. Can anybody please help me?

Hi,

I'm having a common issue I would say. Last time I used my laptop was this afternoon to watch a short clip on youtube, I turned it off right after and I remember it was at 17%, although I have the power button to shut down right away. A few hours ago, I decided to turn it and and surprised I noticed it didn't turn on. I tried to plug my A/C adapter to charge it a couple of minute but the lightning light didn't even show up. I've google'd around and found a way to hard reset it ( Remove the battery/adapter/ hold the power button 30 sec) no success still. I'm wondering if it's either the adapter or the battery is dead, as I don't have any spare of both right now is there a way to confirm it?

Thanks.

A:Laptop doesn't turn on/charge anymore

Hi

There's usually a small light on the power adaptor... is it on? If not, it's probably dead. Try another main lead.
If the light is on, remove the battery from the laptop and connect the power adaptor. Does the laptop turn on?
If not, try the reset again.

Hi!

Could anyone possibly help? This problem has been driving me crazy lately.
In the last few days, suddenly the CD drive on my Sony Vaio laptop only recognises certain CDs. It seems to play DVDs fine, but most of the CDs I've tried aren't even recognised when they worked fine a few days ago.
None of them are scratched & I wiped them all, but it still doesn't recognise them.
They seem to work fine on my CD player but not my laptop.

Thanks so much to anyone who can help me. Regards, Rachel.

Hi,
 
Laptop is a Samsung R510 running Vista.
 
When it is switched on, it gets stuck on the Samsung BIOS load screen. The F2 (Setup) and F4 (Recovery) buttons don't work unless they are pressed straight away. But when they are pressed it says 'Please Wait', but nothing happens.
 
I have changed the CMOS battery, but it hasn't helped.
 

 
I have also taken the hard drive out and turned it on, still the same.  Each RAM stick has been tried on its own, and it is still the same.
 
Can anyone help?

Hello
My pc used to lag sometimes when I incert my external hard drive , I suspected that it could be problem with windows or the laptop hard drive itself
So I wrote down this code in the command prompt to check for drive errors and bad sector ( not the C , I tested D: )
Chkdsk/ /r /f D: /x , where /X means force dismount if necessary
After 8h+ I wake up and check it out it was in stage 4 working but then this error happened and stopped ( check the link )

Since then the laptop keep restarting and doesn't recognize the hard drive anymore
I suspect that it could be because system error cased it to force dismount but then since it crashed it didnt do it properly ,
So what I can do now ? My laptop doesn't recognize my hard drive at all but I have a Bootable usb and it sees it with the correct size

Sounds like the drive is failing or has failed.  Power on, press f12 several times until a boot menu appears and enter the Dell diagnostics.  Run an extended test on the drive -- if you receive an error such as 2000-0142, etc., the drive has failed.  If you need help selecting a replacement drive, we'll need to know the system model information (i.e., Inspiron 5730, N5110, etc.).

First of all hello, I'm new here.

I'm having trouble with my optical drive. When I load a disc into it, it will spin for minutes, but nothing happens. I cannot open audio cds, data cds/dvds nor can I burn any discs whatsoever.

Taken out of a dxdiag report: TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633L ATA Device. Drivers are up-to-date.
Any ideas?
 

A:My laptop's DVD drive doesn't read nor write discs anymore.

If the drivers are up to date then i would have to say that more than likely the drive has had it and will have to be replaced.

Hi everyone, this is my first time posting here.
 
Panasonic CF-W8 laptop, 3 years old, never had any previous issues. It was fine when I left the house today, but when I came back a few hours later, the screen was black and had text I didn't understand. I rebooted, and it said that Hal.dll was missing.
 
So I looked online to see how to fix it, but when I rebooted again, the screen simply turned black and stayed black after the initial boot-up. When I check the BIOS, it says "Hard Disk Empty." I tried using the Windows recovery CD, but it says that there's no hard disk.
 
Does this mean that the hard disk failed? If so, what are the options to get my data? Before shelling out the big bucks for data recovery services, I'd like to see if there's anything else I can do.
 
Thank you in advance for any help!

A:Windows wouldn't load, now BIOS doesn't see HDD

It may be that the hard disk has failed.
Please try these free, bootable hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
 
If it's a UEFI system (mostly for WIn8 and later systems), you may have to disable SecureBoot and enable CSM/legacy in order to boot form the disks.
 
To see if you can recover your data, try slaving it to another computer to copy the data off of it.
If that doesn't work, then we can try data recovery tools before suggesting a data recovery service.

Hello and thanks in advance for your help. I have an Acer Inspire laptop running Windows XP. A few months ago it suddenly stopped connecting to my home wireless network, while all of the other computers in the house connect to the network without a problem. The network still shows up in the list of available networks; when I click on it to connect, it looks like it's trying to connect but it never actually does. My dad thinks that using my laptop at an airport wifi hotspot may have something to do with the issue (the problem started right after I returned from a business trip...).

Any suggestions?

Hey guys! I'm new here and have a really serious problem in my friend's computer!
My friend told me that he opened some king of game (.exe file probably) played it for a while then his computer suddenly restarted itself. However, the problem is that since then his computer doesn't seem to load the Windows startup screen and instead it loads the BIOS setup screen directly after turning the computer on. (It doesn't seem to even try to load the Windows Boot.ini file).
It just shows the motherboard splash screen with a message "Loading Setup..." and then enters the BIOS setup in few seconds.

Do you know anything about this problem? Please help!

Thanks in advance!

maybe the CMOS battery is dead and it is trying to get you to set the date?

Hi allMy laptop turns on and the hp logo comes on but then windows doesn't boot up. I've done a hard reset with no luck and I ran the F2 menu Diagnostic, it came back showing a fail on the hard drive short DST check. Failure is number is Q4Q1X3-7T8880-XD7WLK-6OUC03Thanks!!

A:Laptop boots up but windows doesn't load

Hi @Lauren80, welcome to the HP Forums!  I see you have determined the hard drive is no longer functional. As this is not something I can help you to simply fix, I can suggest you replace the hard drive to resolve the issue.  I'd recommend calling in to speak with a phone agent as they can look up your product and may be able to help you to setup an replacement.  What you can do, is use the following link to create yourself a case number, then call and it may help speed up the call process:Step 1. Open link: www.hp.com/contacthp/Step 2. Enter Product number or select to auto detectStep 3. Scroll down to "Still need help? Complete the form to select your contact options"Step 4. Scroll down and click on: HP contact options - click on Get phone numberCase number and phone number appear.I hope this helps.

The screen does not load at all and jumps straight into "Boot Menu" and "App Menu". I am not shure if it has anything to do with it, but it says in the Diagnostic Splash that the BIOS and the Video are shadowed.

A:Why doesn't Windows 10 load at all on my Lenovo laptop

According to Lenovo's Windows 10 Upgrade website, the IdeaPad U410 is not supported (it doesn't appear in the supported models list here):https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/do...As you can see, the S410 is supported but the U410 isn't listed.If you scroll up to the top of the page (or press the 'Home' key) you'll see this:"Date: Oct 02, 2015""Lenovo supported systems list for Windows 10 Upgrade.If your system is not listed, it hasn?t been tested for Windows 10 upgrade and is not supported"That may account for your problem.With laptops especially, you are supposed to check the manufacturer's website before you upgrade it to Windows 10.message edited by phil22

You can troubleshoot Sleep and Hibernate by setting them to 1 and 2 minutes in Power Options. Use Balanced Plan. Then work through these Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums.

If this is still the factory preinstalled WIn7 then that is a corrupt install which causes many of these problems, which is why most tech enthusiasts will not run it but choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware

If that doesn't help then work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Using a working computer:If you wish to use a LIVE CD ...
Download the Linux version of your choice (usually an .ISO image file).
There are many options to use for a LIVE CD. I suggest that you try one of the following:
Puppy Linux (smallest download file size at 128 MB)Linux Mint 12 Lisa (versions for a CD, and larger versions that need to be burned to a DVD disk)[*]Burn the .ISO image to CD: If you do not already have a suitable burning program for writing .ISO images to disc ...Download and install ImgBurn.Ensure that you UN-check the box agreeing to install the Ask toolbar during the installation.Place a new (blank) CD disc in the drive tray.Choose Write image file to disc.
Under Source, click on the Browse button: Navigate to and select the .ISO file that you wish to burn.Place a check-mark in the box beside Verify.Click [*]When the CD has been burned and verified as successful, it will be bootable.[/list][*]OR ... if you wish to use a LIVE flashdrive ...Go to UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads and at the top of the page, click on Download (for Windows) to download the application.Follow the instructions further down the page under the heading Installation & Screenshots.Run the application to download and install the Linux version of choice to your flashdrive.
I suggest that you try one of the following:
Puppy Linux (smallest download file size at 128 MB)Linux Mint 12 Lisa (download file size depends on version)[/list][/list] Boot the problematic machine from the LIVE CD or flashdrive.(You may have to configure the Boot Menu or BIOS Setup Menu to boot first from the optical/CD drive or the flashdrive, which ever you are using.)Choose to run the Linux operating system from the CD or flashdrive without making any changes to your computer.
Do NOT install Linux on your hard drive.When the Linux operating system loads ...
You will be able to navigate to all the files on your HDD.You can backup your files by copying them to a flashdrive or an external hard drive.Before using the internet (if you choose to use Puppy, for example) you may have to:
Configure/set up the internet connectionDownload a favourite browser

To do this open a window showing what you want to copy. Open another window showing the location that you wish to copy to .... and move the windows so that you can conveniently see both at the same time.Now, simply drag the items you wish to copy from one window into the other.

A:XP won't load up anymore.

Hello priest_jimbo, to TSF!

You have the answer to your problem shown in the screenshot...."The Volume is Dirty."
This means that the HDD is bad; it might be recoverable, but it will mean completely wiping the Drive with a Wiping utility such as DBAN, and re-installing the O/S from scratch.
This in itself presents other issues:
You will need your original Windows? Installation Disc and Product Key;considering the fact that you are still using Windows? XP and Microsoft? no longer support XP; it might be time for you to seriously consider upgrading the unit completely.
It's probably more than 4 years old and ready for the scrap heap.
Even if you were successful re-installing XP you would not be able to update any of the security and system updates because of the cessation of support.
If the HDD is too far gone and re-installation of the O/S is unsuccessful; then, its time for a new replacement Drive.
Taking into account the cost of a new HDD for your laptop, and a new Windows? O/S; such as, Windows 7? or Windows 8.1?, it would more than likely work out to be cheaper to buy a brand new laptop, that would already have an O/S pre-installed.
Prices of laptops today are very good, because manufacturers and retailers are all competing for business; hence, prices are very good.
Now is the time to consider your options.
Post back with your thoughts and any queries you may have.

Kind Regards,

Suddenly my c.d.'s do not load anymore. Not in Windows Media, nor in my PCDJ, etc. When I restart the individual programs the c.d. loads, but only once. (after which I have to restart again if I want to hear a new c.d.

Only my Real Player works partly. It also does not automatically reload new c.d.'s but if I manually delete the playlist and then press Play again it works. But this is not normal I reckon...

Can somebody tell me what the matter can be? (It's not as simple as to click automatic playing via computer - c.d. ROM device etc.)

A:c.d.'s do not load anymore....

Hi paulvangelder

. . . and Welcome to the Tech Support Forums.

Several things to check:
(You've already taken a good first step: you already checked on the "Autorun" setting for your drive)
1) If you can, borrow another CD (or DVD) drive (an external is a quick troubleshooter for this sort of thing). If everything suddenly works just fine with a different drive, it's possible that the drive had become faulty. (Could be something as simple as the lens needing cleaning, or the unit could be failing).
2) If the problem just recently started (and trying a different CD-drive doesn't help), try a System Restore, using a restore point from when the CDs were playing OK.
3) If neither of these work - make sure it's not malware corrupting system files (scan in both Safe Mode and Normal, and use as thorough settings as possible. If you find an infection, try the 5-Step Security Checklist here at TSF http://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=15968)
4) If the system scans clean, try uninstalling Windows Media Player.
5) Run a Registry Cleaner (I recommend CCleaner http://www.download.com/CCleaner/300...ml?tag=lst-0-1)
6) Disable any "Download Manager" software you might have, and download a fresh copy of Windows Media Player (you can do this in Windows Update -- which is a good idea anyway, since you should also check for Security Updates while you're there).
7) Install Windows Media Player & test to see if it plays CDs OK now. Then test your other players.

Generally, Media Players can get pretty territorial about whose player gets to be the default player for different file types. You'll have to check in the Help files for your favorite one, and then follow it's instructions to set it as the default player for the media you want it to play.

See if that helps

STATS
-Vista Home Basic, on a laptop
-Verizon USB AirCard (Model USB 720)

After about 3 hours of turmoil I was able to find all the services that needed do to be turned on to get ICS to work through my USB Air Card.

I've been toggling ICS on/off between my Air Card and my wi-fi, depending on the physical location I am at. I have been successfully doing this for almost 9 months.

Last month I could no longer enable ICS on the Air Card. Soon after that the wi-fi properties show that ICS is permanently enabled, however I'm still not able to use my VoIP device through the wi-fi now either.
When enabling ICS for the Air Card I get the following message:Cannot enable shared access.
Error 1003: Cannot complete this function.
I'm using my laptop for business. It's really important, to me, that I get this resolved. Does anyone have any ideas?

A:ICS doesn't turn on anymore...

I think I found a possible answer...well, I know it did work for me. Don't know if it'd work for everyone.
After about 45 minutes of having a tech look at my computer he finally washed his hands of the issue and told me to install Service Pack 1.


Everything is all better now!! ICS toggles off/on between the Verizon AirCard and the wi-fi!!

Go install SP-1 and hopefully that fixes your problems!!

Here is my problem. I used my computer one morning, all was fine when I left for work...screen saver came on and all. When I got home, I moved the mouse around to try and disable the screen saver, nothing happened. Not the first time I've had that problem, so I turned the computer off, and when I turned it on again, and everytime since, I get a series of 6-8 beeps...then nothing. Nothing pops up on the monitor even though the computer is on. I've tried opening up the pc and making sure all the connections are tight, to which in my knowledge they are.

Does anyone know what my problem could be? Do I need to take it to a repair shop or what? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Just for future reference, Combofix should only be used under the direct supervision of one of Malware Removal Team members. Using this tool incorrectly can result in more problems than what you started out with.

Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there are any driver problems?

Hi I really don't understand why my laptop is acting this way, but it's been like this for about a week now. My usb doesn't autoplay every time I plug my usb into my laptop. There's nothing wrong with the usb though, since I've plugged it into many other computers to test it out and it still autoplays just fine. I tried right-clicking the drive in My Computer, but there is not autoplay option there, nor is there one when I try to change my autoplay options. I was wondering if there's a solution?

Additional information: Windows Vista Home Premium, Sony Vaio CR510E

I think this has to do with my messing around with the startup programs in msconfig. Darn it.

--EDIT- actually, I just checked on another PC and it's not autoplaying either.
 

A:USB doesn't autoplay anymore

There was some mention of a Windows update to disable autoplay on Secrity Now podcast but I don't remember the details. The purpose of disabling autoplay is so that its not so ridiculously easy to infect a computer with a virus that takes advantage of autoplay as soon as its connected.

I've had the same thing happen on many of my systems but to use Clickfree backup transformers, autoplay must be enabled so there's a little utility with that software that enables it again. Same thing happens when I install a multimedia program with a photo downloader utility that monitors for new USB devices.

If Vista is the same as 7 you can try going into Control Panel and look in the Autoplay utility. You have to have the device attached to your system that you want to change the settings fro so it will show up in the Autoplay--devices section (hopefully). You also might be able to right click on the device itself and choose the AutoPlay... item if its there.

A few deatails quickly: I have an AMD Athlon 800 MHz PC, 512 Mb Ram, Soundblaster, N-Videa G Force 2, modem, Saitek X35 joystick and use Windows 98.

I use the USB ports for my joystick and my Palm Pilot cradle which allows me to back up the data from my handheld to the PC. About a month ago neither device was recognised for some reason. Under Settings it tells me that the devices work properly. What's going on? I've not installed any new hardware, only a couple of games.

Also, I don't know if this is related but my computer sometimes reboots for no apparent reason. Sometimes Windows won't even load but says 'Windows Protection Error...'

A:Windows 7 won't load anymore

I am not familar with old technology like Linux, but Windows 7 will configure the boot menu correctly when installed last and if drives other than OS's are unplugged in case one is wrongly marked active.

When Win7 has its boot sidetracked, it is normally recoverable by booting into the Win7 installer Repair console and running Startup Repair repeatedly, in case there are multiple issues. All former command fixes are automated there.

Lately, every time I try to print a scan from my deskjet 4300C, I get an error msg that I need to restart Windows (98) and start again. I had been able to ignore that sometimes and just try to print again & it worked. Now nothing seems to do any good. I tried sending the scan to my HP Laserjet IIP+ (good "old reliable"). That worked.

I have both printers hooked up to a switch box, so maybe I'll try switching the cables around, but why the inconsistency, I wonder?

it worked fine

the only thing I did was play Starcraft, oh, and I also played Batman, but Batman Arkham Asylum played good, had nothing to do with Starcraft. When I played Starcraft, I selected "disable desltop composition"... so I played the game, and noticed after playing, I wasn't on Aero anymore

So I tried enabling it, doesn't works
I rebooted, nothing

I did no hardware or software upgrade
I just played Starcraft

It was working fine today

A:Aero doesn't works anymore

Try a different brand of media. If that does not work, it is likely a hardware issue. There are different lenses for different functions and one laser can go bad while the others still work. What software are you using to write to disks? It can also be a problem with the burning program.

Hello,

My CPU heatsink fan doesn't automatically speed up like it used to when the CPU usage stays high for a long period of time.

The stupid decision from my side that I believe might have lead to this problem is this: I wanted to remove dust from the insides of my computer, and since I didn't have a can of air, I used a vaccum cleaner with a hose instead, to suck up all the dust. I put the hose near the heatsink fan blades, making the fan spin crazy fast in hope of getting out the dust.

Is this a unique case of sheer dusting foolishness? Or is this common, and therefore a solution readily available?

I didn't put my specs since I think they're not needed, but I can post them if necessary.

Thanks for your help!
 

A:CPU fan doesn't automatically speed up anymore.

Welcome to TechSpot

I thought it's recommended to prevent the fan from spinning when vacuuming, so that the high speed doesn't cause damage to the fan bearings.

Have you checked that the fan is still plugged in correctly?

But then I reformatted the XP hard drive and now it won't start Windows 7 anymore. I've tried using the DVD to check the install, or reinstall onto the old XP drive, but it tells me there is no System Partition. Now I see this and think maybe I formatted the hard drive wrong. So I use MaxBlaster (it's a Maxtor hard drive) to fix that and remake the XP drive as a System Partition, but still the same thing. Any suggestions?

A:Windows 7 doesn't love me anymore

To confirm: there are two separate drives, correct? Not two partitions on the same drive? (this is important)

The boot files necessary to boot both operating systems were on the XP drive. When you reformatted the XP drive, all these boot files went away. Now, no operating system can boot (there is no boot sector).

This can usually be fixed fairly simply:

Just boot off your install disk, and choose "Repair your computer" in the bottom left of the first install window (don't click "Install now", look in the bottom left corner of that window for "Repair your computer"). The repair utilities will scan your computer for installations of Windows 7. It should find your installation and say something to the effect of: "A Windows installation has been recovered. Please reboot to fully recover this installation....blah blah" Allow it to reboot. Boot off the install disk again, "Repair your computer" again, and this time, your Windows 7 should show up in the list. Click next. Choose "Startup Repair" at the top of the list. The repair utilities will scan for problems and fix what is necessary to be able to boot. Reboot again. You should now be able to boot. If not, simply do the "Startup Repair" one more time (it sometimes takes two tries to fix everything), and it should almost surely be correct now.

Does this solve your problem?

If not, tell me exactly what you did and what happened when you did it, and I will do my best to correct the problem.

I recently bought a new graphics card for my computer, and since then I've updated windows and installed it's drivers.
The problem I have had since buying the video card, is that no USB headset's now work with my computer.

I've tried updating my audio drivers (which doesn't give me any sound at all). To uninstalling and reinstalling drivers for both the headset and the audio itself.
So far nothing has worked, I have full speaker functionality, but no headsets will work, nor will the microphone on my webcam anymore either.
Is there perhaps more I can do?

I have system spec's in my profile, but if there is anything else I should post please let me know.
Thanks!

A:USB headset doesn't work anymore

If your USB ports are working. I would try the easy fix first.

Check your device manager and make sure the headset and driver is loaded and functioning.

In the start search box type "sound" (no quotes) and select sound. Your headset should show up as a device. It should be selected as default. For some apps you have to change this default back and forth because the code in the app is not written for a head set. I'll post a clip of my sound panel but it does not show a headset. I have none on this machine. But if yours is loaded correctly you will have it.

Hi everyone,

my almost new Portege Z30 doesn't start anymore. There is only one white light flashing - the one for DC/battery - but other than that: nothing happens :(

What can I do?
Thanks for your help and support.

A:Portege Z30- A-1FL doesn't power up anymore

Sorry to hear that?

Portege Z30 is very nice, good looking Ultrabook and as far as I know the notebook?s battery isn?t removable. Therefore the common workaround like removing the battery and pressing/holding the power button 30 sec long isn?t possible.

Anyway, I guess that notebook?s hardware started to malfunction and the fault localization will not be very easy. Usually the notebook engineer would use a special test and diagnostic software in order to find out what could be exactly wrong.

From my point the issue could be related to memory problem or motherboard malfunction and I guess both parts should be checked for possible issues.

Hi,

today I couldn't boot my vista beta anymore.
I get the message:

File: \Windows\System32\Drivers\PxHlpa64.sys

Info: The image hash cannot be found in the system catalogs. ...

Yesterday I installed DivX, which doesn't seem to be compatible with vista.
Probably that caused the problem. I tried to repair the boot files using
the Vista DVD, but it doesn't work.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks.

A:Vista Doesn't Boot Anymore

Hi nri, welcome to BC.You have a driver sig isssue, see the quote from MS below on the fix:Setting the boot configuration. A boot configuration setting is available in the Windows Vista Beta2 release that disables the enforcement of kernel mode signatures to be persisted across boot sessions. Windows Vista includes a command-line tool, BCDedit, which can be used to set the option in Windows Vista Beta2 to disable signature checks. To use BCDedit, the user must be a member of the Administrators group on the system and run the command from an elevated command prompt. An elevated command prompt can be launched by creating a desktop shortcut to cmd.exe, and then using right-click and Run as administrator. The following shows an example of running BDCedit at the command prompt:// Disable enforcement no signing checksBcdedit.exe set nointegritychecks ON // Enable enforcement signing checks applyBcdedit.exe set nointegritychecks OFF // Disabling integrity check on an alternate OS // specified by a GUID for the system IDBcdedit.exe set {4518fd64-05f1-11da-b13e-00306e386aee} nointegritychecks ON These Directions will get you into Windows without having to run the Vista CD recovery Disk.How to Disable Signature Enforcement:Using the F8 option. An F8 Advanced Boot Option introduced with Windows Vista Disable Driver Signature Enforcement is available to disable the kernel-signing enforcement only for the current boot session. This setting does not persist across boot sessions
