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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am trying to install Windows 7 on a HP Z240 SFF workstation but when I boot from the Windows 7 USB media, it does not show the HDD even though it is connected.  it would be great if someone could help me out with this issue. Thanks in advance.

A:Unable to Install windows 7 on HP Z240 SFF Workstation

Hello matt_william,  If you are using a retail version of Windows 7 Operating System. You may have to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver while installing the OS. On the HDD partition windows, you will get LOAD DRIVER option, you have to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver.   Please find below link to download Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY NEED TO BE PERFORMED ON ANOTHER UNIT.   TO USE THE INTEL RAPID STORAGE TECHNOLOGY DRIVER DURING A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM INSTALLATION: 1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved). 2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Navigate to C:\SWSETUP\SP73487 and unzip "" to a USB key for a 64-bit installation. 4. Use the newly created driver installation media during operating system setup to install the drivers.  Once you copy the driver on another USB media, connect it with unit on which you are trying to install OS.  Click on Load Driver and navigate to USB and install the driver. Once the installation is complete, You will be able to access HDD and will be able to install OS.  I hope that answers your question.  I am an HP employee, the opinions expressed here are my personal opinions, not of HP. Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer ?Accept as Solution? if it solves your problem. ***Click on "Thumbs up" button to the left side of my post to acknowledge the post ***

Hello We are going to be purchasing a lot of HP Z Tower Workstations from our supplier in the future and I have been given one to QA in our environment nbsp We currently use HP BCU to make available and enable the TPM on our current HP systems We are using version of HPBCU Today Workstation HP TPM PPI Z240 I have downloaded version of the HPBCU to begin creating a configuration file for the new Z workstations nbsp The problem I have is that the TPM PPI physical presence settings are nowhere to be found in the UEFI BIOS firmware user interface What we want to do is suppress the prompt that would allow users to deny HP Z240 Workstation TPM PPI modifications This is was possible in previous incarnations of HPBCU on different models of workstation in the form of the following setting nbsp Embedded Security Activation Policy nbsp nbsp F to Boot nbsp nbsp Allow user to reject nbsp nbsp No prompts nbsp Unfortunately this is not in the file created using on the Z and as I said nothing appears in the user interface I have checked under Security gt TPM Embedded Security but the only options I see there are TPM Device and TPM State nbsp Is it possible to configure the physical presence settings on this model of workstation using HPBCU If not then I will need to reccommend an appropriate alternative make HP Z240 Workstation TPM PPI model where it is possible nbsp We deploy scripts that run HPBCU through configmgr SCCM and can't have this prompt annoying our users and potentially allowing them to deny the change nbsp We also can't have technicians HP Z240 Workstation TPM PPI visit every Z to configure this manually Our I T estate is fairly large at computers so automatic management is crucial to us nbsp Any help would be massively appreciated nbsp Many ThanksC Solved View Solution

Hi all, I got a Z240 SFF workstation with a 512G HP Z Turbo Drive G2 intalled on M.2 slot as a boot drive. I recently add a 1.2T Intel 750 PCIe SSD on PCIe slot 4 for additional storage. However after the Intel 750 SSD was intalled, the computer began to shutdown automaticly after couple of minutes running. The issue will be fixed after remove the Intel 750 SSD. The system is running 64bit Win10, with Samsung NVMe Driver. The Intel 750 SSD can also be read and write when installed and Intel Data Center Tool shows that the SSD is healthy. I think the auto shutdown issue is related to overheating on 750 SSD. I am wondering if the motherboard of Z240 SFF is compatible with Intel 750 SSD. Does anyone have Intel 750 PCIe SSD installed on their Z240 SFF or any other Z Workstation? Thanks! NOS_ATX

When running an SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence to install Windows 10 on a Z240, the network driver is working in Windows PE during the download and apply Windows image. I'm using Auto Apply Drivers step and after it's completed, the computer restarts into the Windows 10 OS, tries to set up the devices and then the task sequence fails because there is no network driver detected that it can use. I've tried to import multiple types of network drivers from both HP and Intel with no success. I've tried to specifically apply the Z240 driver package instead of using Auto Apply Drivers with no success. I've also tried to install a Windows 8.1 image instead and it still fails at the same point. I'm confused because it works fine in PE, but not after restarting and booting into the Windows OS. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

A customer brought this problem to me, and I've never really dealt with SCSI before. This is an HP Workstation, dual processor capable, SCSI workstation. 2 18 Gb RAID-0. THey were installing XP servie pack 2, and someone rebooted it right in the middle. So now its in a constant loop whenever it loads Windows. They need the information off the drives, and I've tried BertPE, ClusterKnoppix, and even ERDCommander 2005 to see if I can access the drives. None of them can do it. The hardware is fine, I just need a way to get the information off the RAID drives. Help anyone? I'm going to try to install XP on a IDE drive, and use it as the master drive, see if I can get the information that way. If anyone has any other ideas, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!

So I've searched and I've tested and now I'm about to turn my laptop into a frisbee and never buy a Samsung PC again In short I bought an ATIV whose previous owner had downgraded to Win I wanted to put Win on and I have a volume license as well as the OEM key so I burned the ISO actually different ones using every method I could find ImgBurn Rufus Iso Disc Win Download tool etc It became clear won't boot mode. USB install WinPE in UEFI Samsung alt? that the USB needed to be formatted FAT with GPT filesystem however in UEFI mode it shows the USB but won't allow me to select it - it just flashes If I set it back to CSM and UEFI I can make a USB boot but Samsung won't boot install USB in UEFI mode. WinPE alt? even if I use diskpart to clean the drive and convert to GPT it will fail to install because it detects I didn't boot in UEFI mode Here's the deal When I'd installed it earlier this week in CSM and MBR mode Samsung won't boot install USB in UEFI mode. WinPE alt? and then converted to UEFI it worked fine So I tested several recovery programs we Samsung won't boot install USB in UEFI mode. WinPE alt? use at work to make sure they'd restore it okay via bootable media Paragon Aomei Macrium Lazesoft - all boot media failed ONLY True Image DOES ACTUALLY BOOT in UEFI mode on my laptop The only thing I can figure is that the way WinPE or whatever it uses is set up on it agrees with my laptop So what I was wondering is if one of the geniuses here has any idea how I can modify the Acronis recovery media or create similar WinPE media that might actually boot on my laptop THanks for any help

Do you have Windows 8/8.1 64-bit installation media?

To Create a Bootable UEFI USB Flash Drive using Free Program "Rufus".
- Connect your USB flash drive.
- Click/tap on the browse icon and select your Windows 8/8.1 64-bit ISO image file.
- Under Partition scheme and target system type, select GPT partition scheme for UEFI Computer

Hello All,
I wasn't sure wther to post in the vista forum or the NT workstation forum but as the current OS I am using is Vista I will post in this.
I was wondering if it was possible to dual boot Windows NT 4.0 Workstation with Windows Vista (Windows Vista being the current OS, which is one of the problems as it blocks me running setup). I tried running setup in safe mode which it let me do, it then copied files needed to install to the hard drive, and when it restarted nothing came up and vista booted as normal.

Any Ideas, or is it not even possible and am I wasting my time LOL.

Thanks :)

A:Dual Booting Windows NT 4.0 Workstation...

Hello luke,

Not sure that would be worth the time or effort.

As the system is running Vista now probably isn't gonna run with NT4. Different hardware

requirements and not gonna find the drivers.

You can't run the install from within Windows. You would need to boot to the cd to run

the setup process. Depending on the disk that you have you will need the setup floppies

Also earlier version of windows will need to be installed first and then later version .

So IMO this would be a waste of time to even attempt. Not saying that it will even work.

Just my thoughts on it.

Steps so far: 1) I prepared a new machine using a clean install of Win7 RTM x64, installed all of our productivity apps, then ran sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown 2) On another machine, I created a WinPE ISO using the Win7 AIK and burned it to a DVD. Next step is to capture the image and upload it to a fileserver.  However, I can't even boot into the PE environment.  Every time I try, I get Status: 0xc000000f Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible. I've tried creating both x86 and x64 WinPE DVDs -- same result.  Tried several, in fact, to ensure it's not due to a burn error.  I am not doing any customizations to the ISO other than copying the appropriate version of imagex.exe to the root directory.

Hi Guys I have a new Dell Latitude E that I bought a few months ago and after upgrading Windows Startup Sound 7 SSD installing Samsung hangs/glitches after the Windows 7 Startup Sound hangs/glitches after installing Samsung SSD hard drive I have noticed that the windows startup sound now hangs glitches when I boot my machine Here are the specs th Gen Ghz Intel Core i MQ gb PC - DDR Ram gb Samsung EVO mSATA SSD tb Samsung Spin Point Seagate Momentus SATA HDD AMD Radeon HD M Dedicated Graphics Intel Integrated Graphics RealTek High Definition Audio Windows PRO x Bit Using the original gb Seagate HDD and the operating system drivers that came preinstalled with my machine when I purchased it back in june everything worked fine In fact I left the original HDD completely intact when I installed the SSD and have tested my hardware by putting the original drive back in to see if the startup chime was now hanging glitching on it but it still works just fine But as soon as I put my SSD and tb HDD back into the machine I get the glitch again I used the OEM reinstallation CD to install my copy of Windows PRO x Bit but I don't have the original driver disk and downloaded all drivers directly from the Dell support website in order to get it all up and running I did grab both the Intel and AMD graphics drivers directly from their websites to get the most recent copy but other than that I would assume I used the same drivers that came pre-installed on my machine Although I noticed that the newer graphics drivers dropped my gaming and windows aero points down by on the Windows Experience Index Would the decreased startup time from the SSD cause this Can I pull the driver out from my old drive and move it over to the SSD I searched around and the best alternative I've seen is to disable the startup chime Which I guess isn't the worst thing I could do but I'd rather just figure out how to resolve the issue instead My bets would be that it is a driver issue but I have tried re-installing a few different realtek drivers and no luck so far Anyone else had this problem with the Dell Latitude E or any other Windows machine for that matter Any help comments or signs pointing me in the right direction is much appreciated Thanks in advance -Kevin

A:Windows 7 Startup Sound hangs/glitches after installing Samsung SSD

First thing to do is go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound (RealTek) to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This may put the sound in a different point in the startup or even on a different shared IRQ and fix the problem.

I have SSD and do not have the sound problem on startup so its not because of the SSD.

That almost reminds me of a hard drive problem.

Before testing that, try booting from your Windows DVD or repair disc and try a startup repair.

If that doesn't work, download one of these tools and test your drive: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Hi, I have been trying to track down a problem where WinPE was locking my domain user account out while imaging a PC over the network. I found that my account gets locked out when the time/date is incorrect on the WinPE machine (when I am connected
to a network share).
Is there a way of automatically setting or doing a time sync with the time server when WinPE first boots? I would also like to be able to do this without providing any domain credentials.

It's also worth noting that we use the
same boot image for locations in different time zones.
Also, if someone could explain why this locks my account out then I would be really happy... :)

Yeah Buddy!

A:Set time and date in WinPE automatically (WinPE 3 and 4)

Actually.. try this
net time /DOMAIN:<YourDomain.TheWhole.Thing> /SET /Y
This has the advantage of hitting the local/near server so it 'should' set it to the correct local time.

My PC hangs most (but not all) times when I start it up. The desktop icons usually all load, but the screen freezes and I cannot run any programmes. I can move the cursor and when I hover it over the shortcut toolbar at the foot of the screen if turns into an eggtimer and stays like that. The only way out is to turn off the PC (hit the button on the box) and turn it on again. Eventually it works OK but I reckon one day it will freeze for good.

Do I need to resinstall Windows or is there another solution?

My Dell Dimension E510 running Windows XP Media Center Edition will hang up periodically when booting up. It will get to screen where the Windows logo appears but doesn't get to the password screen. (I don't have a password set but I just hit enter). Sometimes it will get to that point and then proceed to load the desktop. Lately the desktop has been very sluggish when I click on an icon. It may take the program almost a minute or so to load. I am using McAfee as my virus protection program. I just ran MalwareBytes and did a quick scan. It didn't find anything. The startup problem has been ongoing for months and I just live with since I leave my computer up and running most of the time.

My Z620 workstation may work for hours without any issues but occasionally it restarts or shut off on its own.It's unpredictable when it may happen. Sometimes it takes few hours until it freaks out and other day it works just fine. I have latest firmware 3.88 and Windows 10 OS. I have installed fresh OS instalation and it doesnt make any difference. All drivers are up to date and it's standard Z620 model. I don't know how to claim it to HP since it's very difficult to fault trace... I still have one month warranty left but beacuse of intermittent nature of this problem I may have problem to claim it. Any help appreciated. I'm located in Belgium.

I have a Compaq Presario Dual Cores T2310,1.5gb and I just reinstall the Windows Vista OS and after installing everything smoothly,I restart the laptop but the booting screen with the word :Compaq" got stuck for 7-9mins after that it loads up as per normal to the desktop.

I have tried to press F2,F10,F11(recovery) but everytime it will get stuck at the booting screen with the word "Compaq" for 7=9mins then loads up as per normal to the desktop.

This is very strange ,can someone help to give a solution.

I have a -monitor desktop setup running Windows as a host OS I use one monitor VMWare mode up hangs screen full in VMs guest Workstation exclusively to run VMWare Workstation When VMWare first loads up at host PC boot I click quot Enter full screen mode quot button which expands it to the VMWare Workstation hangs up guest VMs in full screen mode size of that monitor I then usually load several guest OS's into it My host OS is set up to VMWare Workstation hangs up guest VMs in full screen mode show a password protected screensaver after minutes and then turn off the screen after minutes of inactivity So what I've been noticing and yes this is repeatable is that sometimes when I wake the screen amp log in to my host computer in the morning most of the guest VMs don't seem to respond and show just a back screen Note that it doesn't happen all the time and is somewhat sporadic Here's a quick animated GIF screengrab to show what happens afterwards As you can see only the first VM seems to respond to clicks the rest appear dead Note that if I try to send Ctrl Alt Del keyboard sequence to any of those quot hung up quot guest VMs nothing happens The only way to recover from this bug is to force-quit the VMWare Workstation itself or reboot the host PC which are both analogous to me flipping the power switch on all guest VMs with data being lost in them which is very annoying So I'm curious if anyone knows a way to recover from this bug w o force-quitting the VMs PS I obviously posted this question on VMWare forums but to be honest I don't have much faith in them I tried it before and I never get responses from them From my experience VMWare has a very bad customer support Or I should say they're quot too big quot for a single user like me PS I also checked online and there was an update v build- to VMWare that I installed which unfortunately didn't fix anything

A:HDD no Longer Booting-Hangs for over 2 hours-Stuck on Starting Windows

May I ask why you are using XP to attempt repairing Win7?

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals, Boot into Repair console on second screen of Win7 installation DVD or Repair CD, accept any offered Repair. System Repair Disc - Create
Repair CD - System Repair Disk

If it doesn't start Win7, boot back in, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times to see if it will start. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

If this fails, make sure Win7 partition or it's 100mb System Reserved boot partition are marked Active, then run the Repairs again: Partition - Mark as Active

All commands and fixes are automated in Win7 Startup Repair but you can run Disk Check separately from the Recovery Tools list Command Line if you want.

If not, you can copy out your files using DVD/CD using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then wipe the HD to clean reinstall following these tips to get a perfect install based on hundreds done here: re-install windows 7

My P70 beeps 3 times when booting from my 40A50230US workstation dock unless it's in hybrid mode or I leave the lid up. I normally run my p70 in discrete mode but I'm wondering if my dock or system board is failing. Initially I didn't have this issue but I was out of the office for six weeks and when I returned updated the firmware on the dock. There were also several bios changes during that time period. There are 3 options in bios thinkpad lcd, display port, display on dock. It doesn't matter which I choose same problem. Also if I choose 512 or 256 same issue. If I leave the lid up I don't get the beeps in discrete mode. In hybrid mode it seems to work fine. Any ideas? Thanks.

I have Windows 8.1 installed on an external hard drive. actually you would on an internal drive (WinToUSB - Install and Run Windows on a USB Drive)
and I want to use it with my main PC without booting entirely from it... which is where VMWare comes into play.
So, want to boot from external drive containing Windows 8.1 using VMWare
Anyone know how?

A:Booting from external hard drive in VMWare Workstation?

Hi there
AFAIK the only way to boot Windows from an external HDD is to either use a Windows to Go system (Enterprise) or create a bootable Linux system (these boot from external devices) and run a VM from the Linux.

I've done this many times on an external USB connected via a SATA==>USB connector on a laptop. I use an old Laptop HDD -- works fine. If you have a SATA==>USB3 connector even better or an external USB even better.

Here's a link about this I made a while ago.

How to make Portable Windows system (any version)

This system will run TOTALLY from am external HDD even if there's NO internal HDD in the HOST computer. Other solutions like attaching Virtual HDD's are OK but this then NEEDS the initial boot from an internal HDD to mount the VHD. My method runs 100% from the external HDD.

Laptop was lagging badly n task manager stopped responding so I had to manually shut down. When I tried to restart got the "your pc has encountered an error and needs to restart" and now am stuck there. samsung np270e5j
Tried pressing f4 at startup to go into recovery but all I get is "please wait" then black screen. Looked on couple other support sites and all said to use recovery disks.. I don't have them and was told by support when I first got my laptop that I don't need them because of the recovery drive... Ugh
Went into bios to see if could boot to recovery drive but not an option. Please help. Don't have access to another computer so using my iPhone and kindle to try n get help. Thanks so much for any assistance x

A:Samsung won't boot, then hangs when trying to access recovery

Try F7 or Esc. If you do a reset all the personal data and programs you installed will be erased.
Edit: Try the following and do a System Restore, not Reset.
Hold the Power Button for 5 seconds or until the computer completely shuts off.
Press the Power Button to turn the computer on.
As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
Repeat this process 2 or 3 times until you see the Preparing Automatic Repair screen.
Let the computer boot to the Automatic Repair screen.
Click Advanced Options, and then select Troubleshoot.

i was resetting windows 10 home as i "was selling said laptop" and it hung at 17% and proceeded to stay there for around 7 hours. i restarted the machine and its now stuck at the Samsung logo. i can get into the BIOS but im not a tech. is there a setting i may access to set me on my way or is my motherboard most likely dead or dying?
i downloaded iso of win 10 from the windows site to usb flash and dvd but par for course, its not reading from either media.

any help at all is greatly appreciated.

Hey all, I recently bought a Samsung ATIV 500T Tablet PC. I got it all updated via Windows Update (the only updates in the list now are Silverlight-related).

Recently, I noticed that if I close the lid (third-party that uses the built-in Samsung magnet) without having shut the screen off before, the system tends to hang about 9/10 times. The only way to recover from this appears to be to hold the Power button until it shuts off and then restart the system.

I have let it go a couple of times and the next time I boot, it tells me that there was a dump created. I have attached the diagnostic tool zip. I have tried disabling the wireless device through the OS but not through Device Manager but the issue still occurs. Any ideas?

2 of the 3 memory dumpsdumps seem to reference igddim32.sys. This appears to be related to your intel graphics driver. The timestamp for this driver is Jan 04 13:22:04 2013. Please update your driver from the Intel website.

Hello. I am currently working on getting a fresh installation of Windows 7 on our HP Z240's in order to create our standard business image. I was able to install Windows 7 Enterprise but am having one issue. Whenever the workstation goes into sleep mode it will do a hard shutdown. I've installed the latest drivers found here for the chipset, graphics, NIC and sound. The issue still occurs. I've done the same on three different workstations and have experienced the same issue between all three. The OEM Windows 7 installation has no issues on the same exact workstation. Can anyone assist me with this? Thank you!

I have a Samsung laptop Model NP P C Just a few weeks ago I began to have issues with my power supply or charger on my laptop it suddenly stopped working without warning and wouldn't charge my laptop's battery anymore at that time I had chargers one for my desk and one for my bag so I had no issue and continued to use my second charger as I normally did unfortunately a couple days later I could no longer boot my laptop off of my battery I also was getting strange Samsung Battery Booting Not Laptop From percentages when the computer was plugged in and charging sometimes it would drop from to then jump to and stay there please note as it said it was charged at I still couldn't run my computer off straight battery power I continued to use my laptop without the battery plugged in And it worked normally for about a week until I stupidly decided to try my battery again to see if it'd work and it did most of the time I then continued to use my laptop with the battery until last week my second power supply failed Samsung Laptop Not Booting From Battery and likewise completely with my battery I then figured it was a failure of the battery as my laptop is years old and ordered a new battery and Samsung Laptop Not Booting From Battery charger I got the new charger and battery just days ago and it has worked fine until today I was running a game on my battery and out of the blue it shut off and I could no longer boot my computer off of battery power Luckily I can still use my laptop off of AC power and when plugged in the battery still says it's fully charged and functioning properly but when I try to boot straight from battery absolutely nothing happens not a flash Samsung Laptop Not Booting From Battery of power Like its shorted out or a tick or any other sign any power is being sent anywhere I know as a fact it's not my new battery causing this issue because I now have had and both don't work the second battery has a light on it and it states its fully charged and the only other option is something related to my motherboard So basically i'm asking if i should continue to use my laptop but only off of AC power with no battery installed as I think something related to the charging circuit is causing the power supply failure or if I should stop using my laptop all together and pull out salvageable components before something major fails on my motherboard and kills said components or a complete motherboard replacement my computer is only years old and worth when I first purchased it so its a fairly high spec one Please note I am very comfortable with computers and I have a fairly extensive background I just would like a second opinion on what should be done

Hi all.
My Samsung Notebook 300e has decided to stop booting.
I have tried to start it with the Samsung recovery solution 5 But it just goes to a please wait screen and nothing happens.
If I select any form of safe mode, it will load the files and then go to a black screen with some writing along the top - Windows Version Build: 7601 SP1 Safe Mode. And the cursor appears, but nothing else will load.
I have tried restarting dozens of times with every different option. Any ideas?

A:Laptop not booting - Win7 OA - Samsung Notebook

I think my first step would be to check out the hard drive using either diagnostics built into the bios or a bootable CD with something like Seatools for DOS. If the drive is on it's way out all other attempts to boot or repair are ultimately futile and it's time to get started on file recovery.

My name is Peter, and I'm IT Administrator at Junior High School. One month ago I installed Windows 10 Education on all computers. Everything was fine until today. Today users changed his passwords. Now, when user try to login to the PC, system hangs at "Applying User Settings". The only solution (not the best) is to remove user profile from workstation, but after next password change, problem returns. Active Directory looks fine, Previously installed Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 has worked without this issue. Maybe some one knows the solution or perhaps steps to diagnose it.

Thanks for help

Best Regards,

P.S. Windows version is 10586.29, Active Directory is based on Windows Server 2012.

Until a recent update to FRST  I've been able to use it in windows PE rather than the built in windows recovery environment.
I boot PE via PXE and clean the system without having to boot to recovery.
Is there anyone in the development team that can steer me towards what FRST is using to determine when it's running in recovery mode so that I can fix my PE for it to work again?

A:FRST using Windows PE (WinPE)

Is there a particular reason you don't use FRST in normal mode? The FRST in RE/PE has a very limited log without Addition.txt and it is meant to be able to boot to Windows and run a full log. For recent infections and functions the log in RE/PE will not get updated unless a malware create boot issues.
Anyway, please download and run try the latest FRST (dated today) and tell me how it went.

I'm not clear on this, can you boot into Safe Mode?
By tapping the F8 key immediately after pressing the power button you will open the Advanced Boot Options where you can choose the Safe Mode.  Another option there is Last Known Good Configuration, if you can get to the Advanced Boot Options click on that option.

Hello and welcome to TSG. Right section, by the way.

Restart and tap Function 8 until the Advanced Boot menu comes up. That includes "Disable automatic restart on system failure" so highlight that one and post back some of the detail form the Stop Error message on the blue screen. What we need is the numeric code 0x0000?? and any WORDS_IN_CAPS_JOINED_UP by underscores.

Hi Everyone,
My computer used to boot to desktop in 45 secs, but last week I had to do a repair reinstall.
It now takes well over 2 mins. I ran Bootvis which shows avtivity for 20 secs. then the screen "windows is starting up " but then there is no activity until about 100 secs, when the CPU comes back to life and In another 25 secs. it is up and running. It seem to be waiting or looking for something, but what?
Please help as it seems to be affecting the speed as well.

Hello geniuses, help me please.

Recently, I bought a new RAM and a new HDD. When I boot my desktop, it hangs in the process of installing the Windows from the CD-ROM. It was the reason why I bought the new HDD and RAM in the first place. I thought the old HDD was faulty. Anyone, can give me ideas on how to solve this?

Do you get any error messages, or does it simply hang? How far into the installation process did it get to? Where did you purchase the CD from?

i want to make a recovery partition but i would like to know, can i use WinRE to start the recovery process. i have made a backup/recovery image using the windows 7 backup/restore program (which is in the control panel) but you either need to launch it from the control panel, or a bootable dvd. the question i am asking is, am i able to use WinRE to start the recovery process and then use the backup image made using the windows 7 recovery program?

also the way i would like to set up my hard drive is

partition 1 = WinRE (big enough for WinRE)

partition 2 = Windows (approx 240 gb)

partition 3 = uTorrent (approx 240 gb)

partition 4 = Recovery Image (approx 20gb)


partition 1 = WinRE (big enough for WinRE and Recovery Image, about 20gb)

partition 2 = Windows (approx 240gb)

partition 3 = uTorrent (approx 240gb)

it is a 500gb drive, but the sizes are just ruff guesses atm, but you get the general idea.

The hard disk light flashes around four or five times, and the DVD drive clicks once (as it always does when I boot up normally), but there's absolutely no activity afterwards. The problem started when the notebook suddenly froze during use a few days ago, and since then i've been able to boot up windows in safe mode only once (the computer froze about five minutes later), and from then on, the notebook's been dead after booting up. How 2 fix?

Have you added any new hardware lately? Any new changes to your computer?

See if you can boot into safe mode by tapping the F8 key before the Windows loading screen. From there you will be presented with a list of options to start in safe mode. From here you have a couple options.

1) you can try the last known good configuration

If that does not work you can try to boot into safe mode

2) START> RUN and type in sfc /SCANNOW

If that does not work try a system restore.

3) Once in safe mode you can use the following steps to perform a system restore:


This will restore your computer to a previous stable state.

Hope this helps

Unfortunately my PC got a virus which corrupted (amongst others) my wininet.dll file. My virus software quarantined all the infected files, but wininet.dll is needed to run explorer.exe. I have tried to recover a previous copy of wininet.dll but it is corrupt and now every time I try to turn on my PC (even in safe mode with command prompt, it crashes when it tries to load up this file). I have lost my boot disk and have no way of deleting the wininet.dll file (which would at least let windows run). Any ideas on how to I can delete the corrupt file please?

I have had Ubuntu on my laptop for a while now, and I was trying to set up a dual-boot with xp. My partition layout was such: An ext3 boot partition, a 40gb NTFS partition set aside for xp, a 160gb ext3 home partition for linux, and an ext3 partition that linux runs from. Upon putting in a known working xp boot disc, the screen hangs (without ever displaying anything except a blinking cursor) on boot until I eject the cd, whereupon it promptly loads grub. Thinking this to be a grub/xp clash, I rashly deleted the ext3 boot partition and formatted it for windows, but the problem persists (though now grub gets an error 17 while trying to load). Any ideas on how I can get both of these OSs working? Thanks.

Hello,I went through the steps for malware removal with one of the pros who review the HiJack This logs. Upon completion, I noticed my PC hangs on the black screen when I start or restart. This had not happened prior to the infection. Perhaps a registry issue caused by the malware? It takes several attempts either hitting the reset button or the power button to get it to fully boot up.

Try doing a System Restore, if this doesn't work there are a couple of things we can do.Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

Uninstall them and see if it works again.

Then we'll take it from there.

Q: Z240

Hi Team, We are trying to install win7 on Z240 but due to some issue the SSD does not gets detected we have also tried installing Win7 via CD/USB but still no luck can someone help me regarding this issue.


If secure boot is enabled in BIOS, try disabling it and enable legacy boot.Also in case you are using NVME SSD, then you may need to inject the corresponding driver

Bios ver. N51 1.27 Does anyone know where the option is to turn on Num Lock for the HP Z240? I have looked throguh the service manual and there was no listing for turning on num lock like other models.Example: the  z210 Bios does offer this.  z240  Note: I am not interested in setting the forInitialKeyboardIndicators option in the Windows registy.    I'm looking for an option  similar to was is shown here.

I need to upgrade from a Z220 to a Z240 using the same drives and o/s and software.  Will those drives run on the 240 without crashing?  If not, what drivers would I have to supply to use a program like Acronis Snap Deploy (set to restore to different hardware)?

Hi,I would like to know the MTBF of Z240 workstations.In one site I found MTBF as 2 million hours with SSD. Is it correct?

Have a new Z240 Workstation with a Samsung 950 Pro 256GB M.2 nVMe SSD.Windows 10 will install to the SSD from USB no problem but the machine fails to find the OS post install.The Samsung 950 Pro SSD does not show up in the UEFI section of the BIOS, but it does show up under Legacy devices.Secure Boot is not enabled. If I add a SATA HDD,  Windows Boot Manager gets installed on the SATA device and the machine will then boot Windows 10 from SSD. How do I get the machine to boot from SSD without having to have a SATA HDD installed? I've updated the BIOS from 01.11 to 01.21 with no change in the above.
