Preferred Solution: Won't boot correctly after installing updates.

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.)

When you tap F8 at boot do can you get to the screen that says "Repair your Computer"? If you an access that, you should be able to do a System Restore.

Startup repair from the dvd did not work.

I did use this registry defrag program. wonder if that did something to the registry?

Free Registry Defrag

I generally avoid registry cleaning programs because I don't trust them. thought id try it once to see what happened. not sure if this caused the startup issue or something with the windows updates I installed caused it. I did do several restore points. would that help me fix the issue?

I have been having this problem for a couple of months now. I currently have 25 Important and 5 Optional Windows Updates downloaded onto my computer, but when I restart/shut-down, the updates fail. It usually ends with the message "Windows update failure; reverting (or reconfiguring) changes" or something like that. Then I can log in and use my computer like normal.
 
I have been ignoring the issue since everything was working until recently. I have started to notice things are slower (Internet Explorer, Chrome) and updates for Avast and other programs seem to get stopped before they can begin. For example, Avast is now telling me I have no internet connection, even though I am watching youtube videos while I try to update Avast.
 
Please let me know how to get these updates to install properly. I hope that fixing them will also resolve some of my other issues.
 
Thanks

After installing a recent stack if updates, I reset my computer and allowed it to fully apply them. After resetting once more, the BIOS loads but not the OS, all I get is a black screen and mashing F8 yields the same result (that is, nothing)
This is confusing and worrying to me as there have been no other significant faults.
Specs:
Intel quad core processor at 2.67 GHz
8GB SD-RAM
ATI 5870 HD grhics card

What's causing this? Can it be fixed?
I don't have the install disk
Advanced boot is inaccessible, both F 5 and 8 yields no response.

A:PC won't boot after installing updates

Use the instructions below to get to the System Recovery Options.  In step 7b choose the System Restore option.  Choose a restore point prior to the downloads.  The instructions below include a download of a ISO image which can be used to create an installation disc.
 
 
A Windows 7 Repair Installation will require a installation disc.
 
If you do not have a Windows 7 installation disc you can download a free legal ISO image of Windows 7 SP1 at  Windows 7 Forums.  You will need to download the same version of Windows 7 that you have installed,  This image is hosted by the Digital River store which is an official distribution partner of Microsoft.  This is a genuine untouched image which is safe to download. 
 
 
Attention:  If you do have a Windows installation disc, skip Part A and go to Part B, Step 1b.
 
 
Part A, Steps 1a - 6a
 
The ISO image will need to be burned to a DVD in order to create a bootable installation disc.
 
1a)  To burn a ISO file to a DVD please download ImgBurn and install it.
 
2a)  Insert a blank DVD into your CD/DVD drive tray, and then close the tray.
 
3a)  Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.
 

 
4a)  Click on the Browse for a file icon:
 

 
5a)  Locate the ISO file you want to burn, and click on the Open button.
 
6a)  Click on the blue arrow to start burning the bootable DVD.
 

 
 
Please note:  In order to boot from this DVD you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.
 
 
Part B, Steps 1b - 10b
 
1b)  Place the installation disc in the tray of the CD/DVD drive, close the tray and restart the computer.
 
2b)  You will be prompted to press any key to start the installation, I find the space bar handy.
 
At this point the setup process will load files, this will take several minutes.
 
3b)  You will now need to choose the  Language, Time, currency format, and Keyboard or input method that you'd like to use.
 
After this is done click on Next.
 

 
4b)  Click on the Repair your computer link at the bottom-left of the Install Windows window.
 
This link will begin the Windows 7 System Recovery Options.
 

 
5b)  System Recovery Options will now search your hard drive(s) for any Windows 7 installations.  This will take several minutes.
 
No participation is required on your part at this time, wait till it has finished and the next window opens.
 

 
6b)  Choose the Windows 7 installation that you'd like to perform the Startup Repair on, then click on Next
 

 
7b)  Click on the Startup Repair link from list of recovery tools in System Recovery Options.
 

 
For a future reference, there are several other diagnostic and recovery tools available in the Windows 7 System Recovery Options including System Restore, System Image Recovery, Windows Memory Diagnostic, and Command Prompt.
 
8b)  The Startup Repair tool will now search for problems in the system files.
 
If Startup Repair finds a problem with any system files the tool may suggest a solution which you will need to confirm, or may solve the problem automatically.
 

 
9b)  Startup Repair will now attempt to repair whatever problems it found with system files.  
 
Note:  If Startup Repair did not find any problems with system files you won't see this step.
 

 
Important: Your computer may or may not restart several times during this repair process.  This is normal, you should allow it to continue until you see the Restart your computer to complete the repairs window. 
 
10b)  Click on Finish, this will restart your computer.

A:PC Unable To Boot After Installing Windows Updates

Pay attention to the pattern of those beeping noises you're hearing when you power it up. Your motherboard is probably trying to tell you something. You'll have to go to the manufacturer's documentation to interpret the beeps.

You might also try resetting your BIOS/CMOS and/or checking/replacing the board's battery:

So the other day I installed Vista SP1 on my sister's laptop. It wen't through steps 1 and 2, then restarted. However, before it could get to step 3, it went to a black screen and with 251/60... flashing with others things. I tried restarting the computer and it said the computer couldn't boot. I tried the repair thing, but it didn't work. So I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled vista. The computer was fine. So I decided to run windows update. It downloaded everything and installed it, then restarted. But windows wouldn't boot again. I couldn't even enter safe mode. If I tried to select anything, it would just restart the computer and go to the same screen.

Did the vista updates screw up the computer? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Try running chkdsk on the hard drive you're installing Windows on, to see if it comes up with any erros. Could be a problem with the boot sector.

A:Windows Vista Ultimate will not boot up after installing updates

Markyajv,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

Was your gateway having any other issues before you updated it? Virus, infection of any type? Or was it just time to upgrade?

The reason that you might be getting that disc error is because that might be a recovery disc, not an installation disc.

Try inserting you vista install disc, make sure that you are booting from the DVD drive before the harddrive. Then, when you go to install, when you are looking to see what partion to install on, make sure that you erase, not format, erase the partion. This usually helps with installation errors.

Let us know,
Ben

A:Solved: Dual-booted Vista won't boot after installing updates

I was pretty sure there was no recovery from that mess that was created, so I went ahead and re-installed Vista. This time, I did a couple things differently. I didn't install any drivers (on the first go-through, I installed the chipset and video card drivers). Also, I went ahead and activated Windows this time (first time I didn't). Installing updates was successful this time. I installed a batch of about 41. Then, a couple more popped up, installed those. Finally, 1 more appeared and I installed that. After this, SP1 finally appeared in Windows Update. I tried installing it, and it went through all the motions. Downloaded and "installed" it in windows update, then it rebooted and did all of the configuring and installing with the 3 steps and everything. When it finally rebooted to Windows, a dialog box told me that the installation had failed. So, I downloaded the SP1 executable and tried installing it that way. Again, it went through all of the motions and seemed to be going fine, but it rebooted after Step 2 and upon reboot a black screen was displayed where it got stuck on this entry:

!! 0xc0000034 !! 30583/72488 (\registry\machine\schema\wcm://Microsoft...)Click to expand...

It just sits on this entry for hours before finally just displaying a black screen and I have to reboot. It then tells me Windows failed to start due to a hardware or software change, blah blah blah. I click Start Windows normally and it takes me to the same black screen where it eventually gets stuck on that same entry.

I've read several places online that Vista SP1 has difficulty installing on a dual-boot system, but they are all in reference to a Vista/Linux dual-boot. Does an XP/Vista dual-boot inevitably have the same issue?

Any ideas?

I have read many posts about problems due to the fact that after the installation of MS Updates the computer began to freeze, BSOD or just work slowly. The most usual cause is the fact that the updates are downloaded and installed at the same time. Many of these updates require restarting the computer. This fact causes conflicts and problems when the updates are not installed properly. Next week a large number of updates are expected, change your update settings to notify, only. Install manually, and one at a time. We rather you come to the forum giving help rather than seeking it.

A:updates not configured correctly and comp keeps restarting by itself.

nightmare with vista is this,, wait till you actually get to desktop, when you get there go to windows updates..control panel, see updates you will get big list of failed updates, u can either get rid of them all and start over or

double click desktop clock to sync pc with internet.....look at big list of updates (usually all are ticked) untick them all then tick just 1 smallest you can see and try install that one, if works (usually does) as you got 1 installed others should be easier, suggest you do them all manaully, takes time but no grief then

Hi All,
I need to buy a new hard disk today and install Xp. Been a while since I've done that but I remember last time it asked me what sort of file system I wanted - FAT 32 etc etc - not really sure about that, any advice please? Also - do I need to format the disk first or will that get done as part of the install procedure??
Should I fully install all my cards - (network, firewire etc) before the install?
Thanks for any advice or links you may have.
twcookies

A:Installing Xp Correctly

First thing you're going to want to do is get windows installed, I always choose fat32 mainly because that's the way my disk is.

If this is a brand new hard disk, it will already be clean of everything and all you have to do is install windows on it, You can format it through the installation program but its not needed

If you can before you install, burn as many programs drivers etc onto a disk to ensure that you can have everything without having to connect to the internet, that's if you can

upon installing windows you're going ot want to activate the firewall, and avoid doing any internet activity until windows is fully upgraded and all your drivers from your motherboard, cd drives or whatever you have is installed

once everything is updated and installed then you can proceed to use the internet again, and use it wisely to get whatever you need.. AVG, A firewall, Etc..

I wouldn't recommned you check e-mail or anything utnil you have an AV going, a spyware/malware program going, a firewall up, Etc... only then I would do things like that

Hiya,
 
     It seems that every time that I boot up this laptop, it tries to configures updates that Windows Updater has installed. However, they always fail to configure, resulting in a 15-20 minute wait before getting to my login screen. Honestly, it gets annoying. I've tried doing multiple actions to resolve the problem: updating in a clean boot, attempting to delete the pending.xml files (there are about 292 of them!), running SFCHost, and I really do not want to System Restore this laptop. I couldn't even delete the pending.xml files due to administrative rights I could not surpass. I don't know anything else to attempt to fix the problem. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance!

When I turn my HP LaserJet CP1215 on, on a fresh install of Win 8 Preview the Printer Driver loading icon appears on the taskbar and the green shade goes across as if it's installing correctly. Looking in Control Panel/Printers and devices shows the printer installed and the properties shows the device is working correctly.

However when I try to print in any application no printer is shown, and trying to add a printer runs through the search and finds nothing.

What am I doing wrong? The printer works fine in win 7, any pointers or experiences would be much appreciated.

Hi Everybody,

I've been building computers and repairing computers for quite a while now, and today I came up with a problem that I have not experienced before.
It's really frustrating so I'm counting on fellow forum members to help me out on this situation.

Situation: Client asked to have the computer reformatted. Everything was working fine, but he had windows 7, and his computer wasn't handling it too well.

Steps:
I booted CD-Rom with Windows XP SP3. Good
Deleted Partition of the Old OS. Good
Installed Windows OS onto the new partition. Good
Computer Reboots itself after 100%. Good
After the Reboot, The Computer stays on "Boot from CD:" Bad
Usually, You'd wait that off, and it will continue on to windows.

I think i just figured out what i did wrong. Im going to go try it ott.

I am downgrading from win 10 to win 7 on this laptop and everything has been fine until I started installing drivers, almost every driver I install doesn't seem to install correctly... this has never happened before to me i'm just baffled! After install, the driver doesn't update like it usually does so it still shows in device manager that it isn't installed. I don't know what to do, I know they are the correct drivers since I used the detection tool from HP.

A:Drivers not installing correctly

Hello Lonegeek mate just a little something I do when stuck like that is to download the drivers to a stick and then onto the machine you want them on. You need access to another machine of course to access the machines support site but thats a quick way.

By the by some systems specs would help mate

I went on abc.com to watch tv series episodes but whenever i click on the player to view the episode, it says "Flash 8 is required to view these full-length episodes. You can download Flash 8 here." So i click on the link and download flash, and it says successful download everytime but when i go back to the player, the same message about having to download flash appears.

I thought maybe it would be a problem with IE, so i tried it on mozilla firefox and this time ti asked me to download Move Media Player, so i did that.. but again the same message appears about having to download Move Media Player again. is this a problem with the website or my computer? can you try it on your computer to see if the abc player works? heres the link http://abc.go.com/player/

I can't view anything because I'm outside the US (and I doubt that the player would work on dialup!).

If the message you are getting refers to the Adobe Flash plugin it is odd, because the latest version is 9,0.124,0

My PC was working correctly this morning and then when I came home from work and turned it on the machine doesnt load past the bios splash screen. Sometimes the one screen pops on after that says some info with the drives, ram etc but it turns black quickly with a little white line that flashes on or off in the top left like a command prompt but I cant type in anything. CTRL ALT DELETE does nothing (makes it go completely black). If I go into bios it sees all my drives correctly and the priority 1 is set to my SDD which has windows 7 on it. Theres no disc in the cd drive or usb sticks, etc. I even unplugged the cd disk drive and main HDD so theres only 1 boot possibility and I get the same result...

I just bought a 250 gig SATA drive and I have never installed one onto a machine. I looked at my mobo manual and correctly put in the corrections. When I try to run Windows XP Pro, it shows that I have 131069 MB of unpartitioned space. Now, I'm not math wiz, but 131069 does not seem nearly enough for it to be 250 gigs.

Also in the bios, it shows my drive being in the "IDE Channel 2 Master".

Am I doing something wrong?

you need to install your SATA drivers. When installing windows you should press F6 to install Raid/SCSI drivers. this is when you should install your drivers. i have the same problem, i have two 160gb SATA drives, but i never installed the drivers so at the moment i have only got about 260gb instead of 320gb...

But i do not have any options in the control panel to access the Bluetooth devices to see their contents All I can do is go to the devices and printers Blluetooth Drivers not installing correctly? and select the Bluetooth device and then it opens up its properties I also noticed that the Bluetooth module is shown as Generic Bluetooth Radio I have the drivers CD that came with the computer and also the manufacturers website to download any driver i need but there is no driver that i can see for my laptop Does anyone have a solution for me or am i missing something here Thanks Ben

Hi Ben,

I am by no means a BT expert, but what options do you get if you right click the Generic Bluetooth Radio in Devices and Printers. Your screen shot shows a headset properties page.

I have tried multiple times to install Java 7.

Hello I am hoping someone can provide some assistance in getting rid of this BSOD problem Here is what happened I was using two driver update programs One called Driver Booster by Iobit and the other called Slimdrivers I updated various drivers including Nvidia which I had previously uninstalled but it kept popping up so I just let it go The next thing I know after that is installed and there were no more drivers left to install I ran Windows Update and it also wanted to installed Nvidia again NVidia other updates and BSOD installing updates after driver I didn't have much choice in the matter before I knew it it was installing and I had to restart my computer When the computer turned on again I used it for a little while then it started to overheat something terrible The computer was so hot I thought it was going to start on fire Almost as soon as it started overheating I got the BSOD and within a second it restarted or shut down I can't remember which The fan was running at top speed but that still wasn't enough I could have cooked an egg on the backside of this thing So the next day I started the computer up again and I uninstalled Nvidia completely using Iobit's Uninstaller to remove all traces of it in my computer But the other problem I have now is that it still runs dangerously hot within a few hours I've uploaded the BSOD after installing NVidia updates and other driver updates zip file as per the instructions There must be some kind of conflict going on Any help is greatly appreciated

A:BSOD after installing NVidia updates and other driver updates

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup program before you upload another zip.

You can run a chkdsk in Windows too > My Computer > right click on the drive > Properties > Tools > Check now - then follow the points in my pic.
You then reboot and it will start a chkdsk (in DOS).

A:Cannot Complete Installing Updates, or Check for New Updates HELP

Hello dlolley and welcome to Seven Forums.

According to the Advanced SystemCare diagnose report you provided there seems to be a problem with something called Tuneup 2012 or Tuneup Utilities. I'm not sure if this is a different product from Advanced SystemCare that generated your report or if Tuneup 2012 is a part of Advanced SystemCare. In any case, these tuneup utilities can cause major damage to operating system files, the registry, etc. I would suggest uninstalling them. Windows 7 isn't like XP which required constant tweaking to work right.

Then I would run a full anti-virus scan with your installed anti-malware suite. No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it. So after running that scan I would follow up with some additional scans using these free tools. Don't forget to update the data bases before running the scans.:

Malwarebytes

ESET Online Scanner

Windows Defender Offline

If the scans come back clean you could try rolling back your computer to a date/time prior to the update problems using system restore. I would also run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

System Restore

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

When you're finished with the above you can try installing the updates again. Do not use the automatic update setting. Use the setting called Never Check For Updates (Not Recommended). That will be in Step 3 of this tutorial:

Windows Update Settings - Change

When you manually check for updates install them just a few at a time (maybe 3 - 5 at a time.) Keep track of the KB numbers. After installing the first group, restart the computer. If no problems are noted install the next group and restart. If problems do occur you'll know which group to uninstall. Install the updates from that group one at a time and reboot after each one. They'll either all install OK or you'll know which specific update is at fault. Leave that update for last. Continue installing the remaining groups rebooting after each group is installed. This is a much slower process but usually results in a clean install (providing the tuneup utilities you've used haven't caused additional issues.)

The newest release of this driver is version 15.40.10.64.4300. After installing, my computer restarts and everything is fine. My problem occurs after a couple of days (I think it is caused when I switch power plans or unplug laptop) the power saving technology in the Intel graphics control panel is turned on even though I have the setting disabled. This setting is very annoying because on a white background the brightness is normal, but when on a darker background the brightness gradually decreases. Also when looking in Intel graphics control panel it says I have driver version 20.19.15.4300. Even though I have installed the newest update.

Side note I have the windows power option turned off for adaptive brightness

Turn the computer off and disconnect it from the power
Take off the side of the case and touch the bare metal chassis to discharge static.
Remove Ram from their slots

Plug in the RAM [one stick at a time].
Also try different slots.
Ensure it is seated correctly.

While you are doing that..
Reseat Video card.
Check Hard drive and Motherboard connections [IDE]
Take them off and reseat them.

I am running Windows XP Professional, and after installing new RAM recently I encountered a problem. I found out it was because I had the wrong memory module for my motherboard. Now I have the correct memory module installed, but XP won't boot. I get through the BIOS screen, and then I get a screen that asks if I want to load the OS in Safe Mode, Last Known Good Settings, or Load Windows Normally. None of the options work - any one I choose gives me a blank screen with a white bar on the bottom, or sometimes just a blank screen. I disconnected all peripherals and left just the monitor and keyboard attached. I've heard that I can try to reboot the OS from a CD, but I don't want to do that unless I have to. I also don't want to mess with the BIOS too much as that seems to be OK. What should I do next?
 

A:XP won't boot correctly

do a repair
set the comp. to boot from cd first in the bios
pop in the xp cd and reboot
choose install
ignore the first repair option and continue with install
when windows finds the previous installation
then choose repair
you will have to reload sp1 and any ms updates and probably your video drivers

"Some updates were unable to be installed..."

This problem "came out of no where" and there has been no suspicious activity prior to it starting other than an IE7 redirect rootkit that NeonFx helped me remove (if I recall correctly an infection of agp440)...

Stumped, stumped and stumped...

Hey guys I not Help! Windows correctly! will boot have what seems to be a Help! Windows will not boot correctly! serious problem with my computer Well to start off with I'm on another computer right now as we speak Also my computer that I need help with is a Windows XP with Service Pack installed On my computer that I normally use I began experiencing weird things happening last week I noticed that pop-ups would pop up after every few minutes and that when I would search something on Google- the links would re-direct to random websites I've had this same problem two times already in the past but managed to get rid of the malware that was causing it- from another tech support crew Its weird that this is happening again because I dont remember ever visiting a site that contained malware or anything I never did ANYTHING like that Why the heck would I randomly get a virus Unless someone else in this household used my computer and got on stupid sites with it grrrr So last night I went to GeekstoGo com I began to follow their procedure of maleware-removal before i created my topic I downloaded and ran TFC which is their first option- as you can see Until it stopped and asked for a reboot So I continued with the reboot and thats where my problem began After I tried rebooting Windows stopped and told me quot We're sorry but we could not restart correctly quot or whatever the message was So I tried again it did the same thing THEN I tried re-booting in SAFE MODE and it did the same thing I tried again same thing I just wont reboot at all I dont know what the deal is I then tried using the Windows Recovery Console I ran the scans but that didnt help The scans told me that it could find nothing wrong I thought about actually RUNNING the recovery console which apparently gets rid of installed programs and what-not but I decided to leave that alone since I'm not THAT much of a computer wiz And besides what if I ran it and it got rid of all my stuff but if I were to try and reboot again it STILL wouldnt work I dont know I'm just trying to be cautious because I have sooooo much on my computer My pictures my music some artwork and things that I've written and created that I would never be able to get back I know it isnt good to hold materials high but this stuff is precious to me I hope you guys can help But then again I dont know how much you'll be able to help considering I'm not really able to do anything on that computer NOTE I created this topic on their GeeksToGo forum but the guy who tried helping me well I couldnt understand what the hell he was trying to tell me to do because he lacked punctuation commas etc It confused the hell out of me and I'm already annoyed and stressed about this so I decided I might as well come to you guys Who have helped me in the past You'd think if someone were to give me professional help he she could AT LEAST use good grammar and punctuation

A:Help! Windows will not boot correctly!

BUMP! Its been a while.

I would also like to say, if I didnt before, that I do not have a Windows XP CD. My friend, who is computer-smart, gave me steps on how to use the XP Repair thing. Where you boot the computer from your CD drive and click "Repair an already existing Windows XP installation." He said that should work very well, and wont lose my data and files!! Unfortunately, I dont have a damned CD. BUT! I do have the serial and all that jazz on the side of my computer.

A:Dell PC will not boot up correctly

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.Type: chkdsk /rIt's important to have a space before the "/".To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Hello. I'm running Windows 8.1 on my Surface Pro 2. I have this problem every now and then: I turn on my computer, and I'm greeted with the Start screen. Everything seems normal until I try to go online. All my wireless connections, WiFi, Bluetooth, are not available. My desktop background is black with "Windows 8.1 Pro" on the bottom right hand corner. I open Control Panel and it's empty. The option to turn on Bluetooth and wifi is also empty. When I go to settings, there is no Bluetooth toggle. Anything to do with the system like Control Panel, device Manager, Manage networks is all empty. The folders are there, but when I click on them, they are empty. This happens every once in a while, but it freaks me out. I have to restart my computer, and that seems to take care of the problem. Does anyone know how to not make this happen anymore?

A:Windows 8.1 will not boot up correctly

Sounds like a memory issue, if system files and folders disappear like that. It shouldn't say Windows 8.1 pro, because that would indicate that Windows isn't activated. If all your WiFi settings disappear when getting online, that's either memory, or a virus. Do an Antivirus scan, and check to see if Windows is activated.

How long have you had the Surface Pro 2? If its under warranty you may want to use it and get it repaired.

When I boot my computer, the monitor just stays black, then the pc beeps once and a wierd voice says something through the speakers which i cant understand for the likes of me (its too fast and static-y).

BUT

im able to HEAR everything being booted up perfectly. I can hear the XP welcome music and hear the beginning services being started up. When i press the button to turn it off (since its still all black) i hear the shut down music.

WHAT HAPPENED!! please help. i need my comp more than ever right now.

is there any way i can reset all the mobo settings on the mobo itself? help!
 

A:plz HELP pc wont boot correctly

Unplug the system and wait a few hours (30 mins)... While you wait check the monitor connections to see if any pins are bent. See if the power you connect to is faulty. Check all connects and don't do it in dim room.

If everything checks out okay try to turn it back on again. If you can reset the Monitor back to factory.

When you boot-up the system right after press F8 a few times then put the system in SAFE MODE. See if you can get into that and something should show up.

What were you doing prior when this was happening?

Hello

Recently my computer has stopped booting up correctly. When I turn it on, the boot screen comes up fine. Then the Windows XP logo. Then the screen goes blank. After about 30 seconds of a blank screen, the cursor will show up. However, nothing else shows up, like the login screen. After about two minutes, the background of the login screen will show up, but not the login screen itself. It just hangs at this point.

I have tried doing a system restore to a restore point from earlier this week, however, it still hangs at the background of the login screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Windows will not boot correctly

That's not strange in XP that's why backup programs are very important, XP's System Restore isn't enough.. You might have installed too many programs/applications. A virus may also cause such problems.

I would recommend using a LiveCD now to backup all of your important files somewhere in the disk and reinstall WinXP to have a fresher system.

You don't want to solve it the hard way unless you really want to be an expert.

A:Laptop does not boot correctly

Power it down as far as it will go.
Then hold the power button down for 10 seconds.
Boot up and see if you can enter the bios setup.
Check the power options in the bios and make sure the
power button is not set to standby.
May be that the windows power settings didn't take and holding
the power button for 10 seconds should put the computer in
a complete shutdown so the next time it boots it will reread the registry.
Checking the bios won't hurt though.

OK, since it let me in windows i downloaded the biostar flashing utility and cleared the cmos and installed the latest mb firmware. Then when i restarted i was able to boot to the cd-rom and put in c:/fixmbr and c:/fixboot . Now the computer still gets a disk boot error unless the windows xp CD is in the drive. When I leave the CD in the drive and do not hit any key to boot to CD, then the computer boots to xp correctly. But if i take the CD out then i get the disk boot error.

Hello,

So when I came back from class today, my computer was off and so I turned it on. It never got passed what seems to be the BIOS screen (I don't actually know what it is, but that's what I think it is).

I have a Predator G Series G5900, with no modifications.

Attached is the photo of the screen I have when I turn on the computer.

What I have tried:
- Unplug every USB device and take off the power supply. Hold the power button for 30 seconds. Reboot.
Thanks in advance,
Christian

Windows 8.1/Linux Mint
 
Hi
I’ll try and explain as briefly & simply as possible.
My boot order is ODD/USB/HD, boot speed normal & Secure boot disabled
but when i try to boot a disk you can hear the drive activate, start to spin slowly
and then full speed by this time Windows has already loaded on the desktop.
I tried and tried but without success.
But then a curious thing happened!!
While I was still in Windows and the disk was still in the drive but not
running I went to my PC Settings navigated to the UEFI screen and entered
the BIOS/UEFI. I checked all the settings again and it is as above and when I
click to exit the disk bursts into life and boots into ‘Linux’ in this case.
 
Any help or advice appreciated
 
Cheers

A:Boot sequence not working correctly

Look in UEFI for a setting called Legacy or CSM boot. Not many disks can boot with UEFI enabled even with SecureBoot disabled.
 
What is the make and model of the computer. Most modern computers can access a boot menu at startup that will let you pick the boot device.

A:Didn't correctly set up dual boot of 7 and xp

Boot the Windows 7 install DVD and run Startup Repair up to 3 times. That should fix it: See here: Startup Repair

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River.
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.

The COA sticker on your computer will tell you what version of Windows 7 you have, but it's most likely Home Premium, but it may be 32 or 64 bit.
