I start the laptop and I get the black screen with the Dell logo on it. There is a progress bar at the bottom that moves across to the right as the boot up progresses. In the bottom right corner, it shows the option of hitting F2 for Set Up or F12 for Boot Menu. I can access both of these menus. It then progresses to a screen with the Windows logo with the words "Resuming Windows" underneath. Once that completes, I get a black screen!
I was told that I should boot up the laptop in safe mode by hitting F8.....
My Inspiron N5050 no longer boots up, not even in safe mode or "last known good configuration." Decided to reinstall the Operating System, but need to know whether I have 32 bit or 64 bit.Have all the originbal documentation, including system specifications, but cannot tell whether my laptop is 32 bit or 64 bit.How to determine if you can't boot up the system?
I was trying to boot in safe mode so i went into boot options checked safe boot and minimal. Then when I restarted, it just kept restarting over and over again. I can't get to safe mode. I can get to the setup and boot manager. I tried running diagnostics and there were no errors.
Vista Home Premium, didn't have a disc so ordered one from Dell. Upon startup it ask me to put a disc in to repair.
Will this work, my understanding you needed a Vista disc, and this computer does not seem to have a partition with Vista on it, for the repair. I wondering if this will work? I tried diagnostics everything seems fine, but it loops to safe mode.
I have Dell N4010 laptop with 4GB ram (1333 Mhz, 2X2) purchased in Jan 2011. Recently I bought transcend 4GB 1333 and have removed existing 2GB ram and replaced with 4GB to increase the physical memory to 6GB. I can see that the ram has been detected and the total is showing up in Bios. After this, the system does not boot, it just keep restarting.
I tried to start with safemode, however the files load but at the end, I receive a blue screen with error like '...Bad pool header...'.
The screen does work in "safe mode", so the screen is functioning. It might be something with the graphics settings (I use a separate screen on this computer often). Step-by-step procedure to run in safe mode to check out the problem?
I entered Safe Mode in my Envy TS 15 running windows 8.1 to fix some issues with my Norton software and now I can't figure out how to exit back to normal mode. Internet is shut off in safe mode (even though I selected safe mode with networking) so I can run any of Support resolutions. How to do this?

I have an HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook PC. The other day, it crashed and gave a blue screen error. Since then, it wont start. Ive tried starting it normally and in safe mode, neither work. This is the information given in the blue screen.:
*** win32k.sys - Address FFFFF9600006CCA3 base at FFFFF96000000000, Datestamp 53c5df64
When it first crashed, I was playing a game, then the screen got all pixelated, then the blue screen. The computer has had overheating problems because the fan doesn't work 100%. It would shut off often from overheating, but I cleaned the vents out thoroughly, and it hasn't overheated since then. Since the computer wont start, I cant get to the crash dump files.
I purchased my daughter an Aspire One 725-0687 last Christmas. She only used it a couple months and it has sat around for the past 5 months with no use at all. She went to use it today and couldn't remember her password. I tried several but continue to get the same response... "Your PC is offline. Please sign in with the last password used on this PC". For some reason, it's not connecting to wifi, I have removed the battery, I have attempted "safe mode" with Alt f5, f8 and even f10 and I get nothing except back to the sign in screen. I tried ALT, CTRL, DLT and it does nothing.
I am trying to find a solution to repair a Vista (Home?) installation on an Aspire 5920. The laptop blue screens with a Stop error code 00000F4 when booted in either Normal and Safe Mode. This problem started after installing a program although it may also have a malware/virus problem. The inbuilt Startup Repair and System Restore both fail.
I have the Acer Recovery disks but the Acer eRecovery website suggests that all personal data will be lost if they are used. Is it possible to repair the OS installation from the recovery disks instead of reinstalling it?
I have a Inspiron 14R for about a year and half now. This computer has done this since day one for some reason:
When I put the 14R in SLEEP mode, the computer remains in sleep mode for about 2-3 hours, then the computer shuts itself off, or goes into hibernation mode on it's own. The computer has Windows 7 Premiuim.
I have the power saving modes all set too SLEEP, and none in hibernation in any of the selections. I cannot for the life of me why this computer does this. I have a Lenovo I bought about a year later using Windows 7 Premium with all the same settings in the POWER section, and while in sleep mode, it STAYS in SLEEP mode, no matter the length of time in that mode. Any setting I need to turn off, and where to find it?
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 running Windows 7. I try to turn on my computer, it goes through the Dell logo screen and then instantly reboots. I have pushed F2, F12, F8 and Ctrl+F11 keys during the Dell logo screen, but none of these do anything; all that happens is a black screen with a blinking white cursor in the upper left corner comes up for a couple seconds and then my computer restarts. I have the OS disc for reinstallation, but because of the computer not going past the black screen with the white blinking cursor in the upper left corner, I cannot reinstall Windows because it will not restart correctly.
I have an Ideapad Y510P with 24G SSD and Windows 8.1. I uninstalled the Express cache by a mistake. So I want to re-install it. Unfortunately, the install program told me that I need to reboot the system even I tried to reboot or shut down the system several time.
I recently got my Inspiron 15R SE, but the problem is that my touchpad mouse pointer speed gets reset after every reboot. I updated and triend reinstalling it but no change. It is Elan touchpad but named as dell touchpad.
I have a dell Inspiron 15r 3537 i7 model with windows 8. I bought it 4 months ago. I was playing a game on it and it suddenly hanged. I waited for 5-10 minutes and tried to close the game but it wasn't closing and it was hung. I waited for atleast 15 minutes and I had no choice so I switched it off from the power button thinking that it will turn on normally. But when I switched it on it showed the dell logo and then it said
Checking media Checking media [fail] Checking media [fail]
No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine.
I have a Dell Inspiron 14x 5423 that will reboot/restart but will not shut down, sleep, or hibernate. The screen shows shutting down, the screen and the hard drive turns off, but the power light and fan stay on until the battery dies in the laptop. I hold the power button and everything shuts off. When booting, I do not get the windows improperly shut down error the I normally get when I just hold the power button to shut off the computer so I suspect the operating system is shut down! I have tried updating bios to A13, video drivers, Chipset drivers, and Windows 8.1, The laptop passes all diagnostics.I even tried admin command prompt and "shutdown /s /f /h 0" command with no different results. Changed all settings in Control Panel to enable sleep and/or hibernate. I downloaded KB hot-fix which says it is for Windows 7 as another test.
I have an Inspiron N5110, service tag 84J4GR1. Last month, just after the warranty expired, the hard drive failed a test and I ordered a replacement Seagate drive. I followed the instructions to replace the old one but when the computer is powered up, a message comes up "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected boot device and press a key" I have entered the Bios screen and changed the boot up order so that the hard drive is first. I have also run the Diagnostics facility which say that all device working including replacement hard drive. How to get the machine to boot up?
long time PC user and I am trying to find out, with no success so far what would be safe temperatures for the cpu i7-3632QM and for the GPU HD7730. I am a bit fanatical about taking care of my PC's so this info is important to me.
