  • Firefox crashes at the start even in safe mode

    Firefox crashes and makes internet Explorer and also chromium at startup. Chrome works however after reintallation, but may break after a reboot.
    It was produced after an update of the anti-virus (avast and avg) both demanded a restart of the computer.
    I turned off the antivirus and reinstalled the browser (latest version), but it still crashes.

    I think I solved the problem!

    It seems to be the new version of "protection avg: zen ', it is to play with all web browsers, is not search for viruses, closes the network connection and not to repair...
    So I removed it and everything seems to work normally...

    Should have known that avg was problem since all the headaches began after its update.

    Thanks for all the help!

  • Satellite L300 will not start even in safe mode


    Whenever I turn on my laptop, it shows me two options: start windows normally or perform a system repair.
    I tried both of these options, but I can't seem to access the page where I have to enter my password to access my desktop, I tried a number of things by pressing F8 during startup, including startup repair up to and restore to the previous point, but nothing happened.

    I have the vista operating system and it seems to freeze immediately after loading (the long rectangular bar with the Green thing from left to right, saying Microsoft Corp. below). It freezes... the page is all black and my cursor is there, I can move the cursor, but nothing is there to click on. HDD/ODD lights do not Flash indicating that the laptop is not all 'work '.

    In addition, it took me to a page where he was "collection of data for the crashdump"... don't know what this means but yes and it also took me to a page where it says 'one of your disks should be checked for consistency. He also posted a message saying that the registry file failure does not load. Systemreboot/System32/config/system

    I start it in safe mode and it shows a bunch of files and says please wait.
    After my computer goes on a blank page (all black) but I can see and move my cursor and it is bigger than usual so I guess he's about to go to safe mode, but just, he remains on the screen and does nothing else.
    He was about 35 minutes and it's still at this screen, that nothing has changed.

    Thanks for your help :)


    Try to recover the device by using the drive HARD recovery option.
    I hope you didn t change anything on the HARD drive recovery partition.
    HARD drive recovery allows you to reinstall the operating system without the use of all disks!

    Turn on the device, press F8, choose repair my computer and choose the option to drive HARD recovery.
    Usually, it would begin the new installation of the OS. But note; HARD drive recovery option would be to format the whole HARD drive, which means that you will lose all files stored on the HARD drive.

  • Acer Aspire laptop bluescreened, will not start even in safe mode, running vista

    My roommates son asked me to help him to be on the internet, which I did, ran unusually slow in doing so, I noticed it when I checked, I found that the notebook had three solutions of different software protection, antivirus, Norton, McAffrey and AVG 2011 version for free. Also I noticed he had some solutions that provided a diagnosis, list of problems found and wanted to pay for the product before they would allow acccess to the fix. I uninstalled Norton and the McAffrey and improved the AVG free version of 2012. I also uninstalled the pesky diagnosis/buy me for the correction and the toolbar software. I installed ccleaner from piriform as well. The laptop seems to run a little faster, but the next morning he projected blue and when I tried to start it in safe mode it not loaded so far and then frozen, always in the same spot something AVGi and then it crashes, it will not load the rest of the necessary drivers. I tried to boot to the last known good as well. I even tried to downgrade to Windows xp home edition sp3 and when I do it it says there is no hard drive detected, and do I have to make sure that it works correctly.  I am at a loss, my sons friends bought the laptop (Acer Aspire 5315) for $50.00 and did not get a recovery disk so that the option does not exist or the other. What can I do to solve this problem. I'm sure that for some reason, it has to do with the BIOS and I went to the Acer site (from my laptop) and downloaded something to repair the bios on a flash drive, but me is not good because I can not start on either flash player. I am at a loss here and have no idea how to solve this problem. I am practically self-taught and I am a beginner when it comes to repairing the problems. This one is right behind me, someone has an idea what is my problem?

    I even tried to downgrade to Windows xp home edition sp3 and when I do it it says there is no hard drive detected, and do I have to make sure that it works correctly.

    If you tried to install Windows XP, and it says that? Do you have any installation CD? I don't want to say this, but maybe the hard drive went kaput. Maybe a little rare, but it can happen and so he bought the laptop for $50, which I am sure he did not a store. You hear a clicking sound from the hard drive? Have you checked for the hard drive in the BIOS?

    First of all, make sure your own system.

    go to safe mode with networking and run following or whatever it is you have to go quickly f8 safe mode when you turn on your pc! or and the TWO RECOMMENDED!

    After that prepare your computer to clean boot, by typing msconfig in Start menu and then pressing on enter then disable all startup items and any of the services of windows, then restart in normal mode see if it makes a difference? If he did go back and see that one is at the origin of the problem and enable those that you really need!

  • MacBook does not start (even in safe mode)

    Hi, I have a MacBook pro that won't start. When I turn it on, I hear the ring of priming, but then the screen stays black. I tried all possible troubleshooting recommendation, that I could find on the internet, but nothing makes a difference. None of the startup option keys (start in safe mode, mode disk target, selection of the boot drive, etc.) anything. I can reset the PRAM, but nothing else has even made a difference. All I see is a black screen

    Last night, I tried to install another OS in a dual-boot configuration, so I was messing around with partitions on my hard drive. I thought that the worst case scenario, I could always reinstall the OS. Can really break the complete formatting of the hard drive boot sequence? I thought that a hardware failure would prevent me from booting from a USB stick recovery.

    The computer is a MacBook Pro 15 "start 2013I think.

    Thanks for your time

    Command-R works.

  • Cannot open the boot even in safe mode.

    Used Windows Start, I can not even start in safe mode, happening all of a sudden just start, keep getting the blue screen of death says are of course hard drive attached / pilot State failure, I managed to install and run Linux Abuntu no probs to allfrom the drive.and Cd which took end hard drive worked well made all the verification of the mem diognostics ect just it.

    If the system or Mode restore safe work not and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

  • Tecra A4 won't start even in safe mode

    Today I close my Tecra morning, put it in my bag to take to work, that it works but does not use it at all, and tonight when I tried to start it again, it does not start.

    I get to the screen that says:

    We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

    If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically closed down to protect your files and folders, select last good known Configuration to return to the most recent settings that worked.

    If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button has been activated, or if you are not sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows normally.

    Safe mode
    Safe mode with networking
    Safe with command prompt

    Last good Configuration known (your most recent settings that worked)

    Start Windows normally

    Use top and down arrow keys to move the selection of your choice.

    None of the above options, works they come back just the same screen and I have no other options.

    I also tried to put my Toshiba Tecra A4 product Recovery DVD-ROM and when I first did it is scope loudly for a minute without doing anything, and when I tried the above again, it comes back to the same screen as before.

    Most of my files is saved, but there are some that are not, and I don't want to lose them.

    Can someone give me some ideas to solve this problem?

    Thank you

    Hmmm. very strange

    I think you should try to format the whole HARD drive with an original CD of Microsoft Windows XP.
    Delete all partitions and reinstall the operating system.

    If you want to save the files on the HARD drive, then I recommend to remove the portable computer HARD drive and plug it into the second computer via external USB HDD controller.

    After that backup files put the laptop HARD drive, access to the BIOS, set the default BIOS settings and save the settings.

    Then use the Xp CD to format drive HARD and new installation.


    Hi, I have Windows XP Home Edition. My PC was working fine last night that running slow exemely.  Tried to launch today, but he gave me the following message is displayed:

    "A problem has been detected and window has been closed to prevent damage to your computer.

    Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defrag, backup utility.  Check your hard drive recording, search for updated drivers.  Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

    If you need to use Safe Mode, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

    Technical information:

    STOP: 0 X 00000024 (0 X 00190203, 0 X 00000000, 0X81B4EDE8, 0XC0000102). »
