i hav a dell laptop, and i ned ns's help. i turned my omputer on this morning, and verything loads except the start bar on the bottom of the screen. so, i turned my computer off, and pressed start windows normally. again, the start bar did not come up. so when my computer was starting up again, i pressed reboot, and now everytime it gets to start windows normally it goes right back to the screen that comes up when you turn on the computer. does reboot mode like stay until you turn it off or something? and if so how do u turn it off. idk somone please help me!
its prolly comin back as unexpected shutdown in which case it saves whatever you were doing and brings it right back when you turn it back on
as for the star bar, make sure that you didnt minimize it all the way to the bottom or move it by accident to one of the other 3 sides of the screen...i hope you could follow that cuz it was kinda confusing
your probly going to have to restart it in safemode and figure out the bug. when your turning the computer on and the screen is black and it displays the computer stats and stuff press escape or something like that during that time and select safe mode
no you didnt. all you said was to close existing applications which would be using RAM, the amount of ram being used has no affect to what the problem he is experiencing. He said to run explorer which will control the start menu and basically the whole operating system. completly different thing.
yeah, your computer may not be executing explorer.exe when you start up your computer. if that doesnt work, your best bet is put your xp cd inside and boot it from the cd and reformat/reinstall windows. also try safemode.
just put all the songs and shit on your ipod. once you have re-formatted and re-installed, put ipod to computer and transfer from ipod to computer you can get a program to do it or you can do it manually.
as the computer boots up repeatedly hit F8...a boot menu will come up and select "Last known good configuration" and press enter. If that doesnt boot properly do the same F8 thing and select "Safe Mode" and boot that way. See if it comes up to a usable page and then reboot from there
reformat, how old is your laptop? you could bring it to a tech but most are lazy and will reformat it anyways, so save some cash and just reformat it, yes you will lose all your ipod songs etc but is that really a concern cause its rather painless to redownload them, which btw is probally how you manged to mess up your comp in the first place. ironic?
if you have the xp cd, boot from cd, there should be an option to fix windows, can't remember exactly what its called or what you do it, but it is possible. you said its returning an error box saying a file has been corrupted or whatever, so this method should be able to work, it will however erase all the windows updates and security patches. it basically goes through and restores any windows files that are different to the ones on the cd. if you can do that you'll still have all your music and programmes etc on there
