Probably, reinstall windows and it will be ok. But, you may need the DVD from the manufacturer to boot from in order to reinstall a fresh copy of windows.

    Not necessarily gone, but practically, I would say that if you have valuable data you might want to have the data retrieved by a local computer shop. If you haven't been backing up your data regularly using windows backup or equivalent, then practically, the data may be lost, because you cannot boot within a few minutes, it's more like 1 hour, and it doesn't function correctly. There are ways to get the data off, but for most people their most valuable data is stored on cloud or Internet sites that have more reliable servers than a personal computer or laptop. Good luck on revamping your laptop's operating system.

Notebook not loading up keep getting blue screen. Cant get on to reset factory settings


I'm guessing it is running windows, have you tried pressing F8 when notebook starts loading windows.
If the problem started after installing any driver or application then select the option for "Last known good configuration".
Or select the option for safe mode, if it boots fine on safe mode means could be a problem
with any driver.

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

STUCK ON START PAGE,CAN'T GET TO DESKTOP


Most likely a Windows software problem. Could be virus caused. Try restarting the laptop and immediately start tapping the f8 key until you see a screen with several boot options.Use the arrow key to select "boot using last known good configuration". If that works, you're done. If not, try restarting the laptop and immediately start tapping the f8 key until you see a screen with several boot options. This time select "boot in safe mode". The laptop screen will look different but will still allow you to run your laptop. Click on the "Start" button, then "Help and Support" and then "Undo changes to your system using system restore". Click on "Restore" and then select a date shown in BOLD when your laptop was running fine. Have the laptop restore to that date. After restarting, you should have full functionality. If this doesn't work, you may have a failing harddrive. Try reinstalling Windows. If it fails during loading, your harddrive is most like failing and should be replaced. If reloading solves the problem, you had corrupt software probably caused by a virus attack.

My aspire1 has blank screen with just the pointer on .the pointer wont move and i cant get onto screen


Your laptop may need defragmenting. It is possible for everything to lock up if the hard drive is too badly fragmented.

Try starting up in safe mode. Press F8 shortly after switching on then select start in safe mode.

The defragmenter is in the START MENU / PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / SYSTEM TOOLS.

Select defragment.

It may take a few minutes to a few hours.

It is necessary to regularly defragment (two or three times a week), many people aren't aware that the operating system will definately slow down or crash if you dont.

Hope this helps.

1. Please press and hold on F8 key immediately after power on then select Safe Mode. If you are able to go to the desktop, please go to Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. Please select a date when your laptop was working properly. This will the software changes beyond that date but will not delete your personal data. Your laptop will restart and give the message that the restoration was completed. Please connect the ac adapter so that the process will not be interrupted. If this does not work like if you are not able to
2.Do the system recovery but with this option, you will lose everything and your computer will be restored to the out of the box state. For you to do this, you will need to use the recovery disk that came with your laptop. Please load the disk 1 then turn your laptop off. Please press on the power button to turn it back on then immediately press and hold on the F12 key. Select CD/DVD from the boot options. Windows will be loading files then select Recovery Wizard. Select the Default Software after that then select the Recover to the Out of the Box State. After the first disk, you will be prompted to load the second disk. Please connect the ac adapter since the entire process will take around an hour.
Hope this works. Thank you.
