Vista 64 does not start after the bios screen. Can not boot from the recovery cd or help

Last night a MS pushed a windows update and my pc restarted automatically.  But it does not actually restart.

The PC goes through the bios tests, passes and then crashes and does not start in Vista.

I can't start at all, including safe mode.

I can't the system recovery option in HP bios to load.  Can I only use my Vista64 system recovery bootable cd or actually start.

First of all, I thought it was a HARD drive problem, but tests of the bios disk hard that all spend, even the 2 hours 'SMART' test that he was running.




What happens when you try to boot from the recovery CD? You receive messages or error codes?

You can check if the boot in the BIOS settings priority is configured to boot to CD\DVD.

NOTE: Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

For more information, you can consult the following article:

BIOS: Frequently asked questions

If you still experience the problem, you may need to contact HP for assistance.

  • laptop past in an endless loop of starting after the recovery of the PC

    I have a laptop of DV2109NR who was riddled with viruses. It was suggested that to make a recovery of the PC hard disk. The first attempt was made without reformatting. After 10 hours, the recovery said that completing. After you click OK, the machine went to the screen of Microsoft XP, then a black screen, then the HP invent screen with options press ESC to change the order of starting, and F10 to access the configuration. This scenario keeps repeating. The computer ran for hours and nothing happened. I then did an other PC Recovery do a reformat of the HARD drive and I am still affected by the same systems. I went in the diagnoses and tested the HARD drive and got an error message 'test status #1-04 Fail', which I understand is a bad drive. The drive was working fine before the recovery of the PC.

    I also tried emergency boot CD disk, change the boot order, but nothing happens.

    Can someone me in the right direction / I hope I did it correctly guide as this is my first time posting. Thank you

    If the HDD was beginning of failure, probably the stress of 'charges from virus' and make the recovery pushed over the limit. A new hard drive should be relatively inexpensive and easy to replace. Hope you had a defined recovery disk.

    It's a 110 hp

    Hello Neil,.

    To clarify...

    You try to reinstall Windows on a HP 110-210 desktop PC, correct?

    What operating system is currently on it?

    For the Pavilion X 2, you say that the media authoring tool does not recognize your USB, correct?

    What brand and size is the drive?    It's a Sandisk drive by chance?

  • Computer does not start after the screen of the bios, Compaq Presario SR1023WM

    Ok. Trying to fix a friend's computer and seem to have met a strange barrier.

    Problem: The computer does not start after the bios screen.

    Details: When you turn on the computer, the compaq logo with intel inside is and has the < F1 Setup > and < F10 System Recovery > options listed as well.  And that's it as far as the computer becomes.  After that the computer just locked up, no work of buttons on the keyboard lights keyboard ect ect.  I tried the puree on the F1 key, as soon as I turn on the computer and I can handle so he can say * entering setup * but it freezes again after this point.  I already tried to eliminate the possible sources of the problem, removed all expansion cards, HDD and Dvd Rom module only disconnected, only memory (256 MB ddr 2700), power, vga and keyboard connected.  Ive also used the jumper on the motherboard to clear the cmos, hoping that would solve the problem without success.  I tried using a different memory stick and different memory as well...  Tried to use both a ps2 and a usb keyboard... Ive even tried pulling the rider for the protection of the bios password (even if she did not have a password on it, just try everything I can think of).

    The installed bios version is 3.1, and that's all that I know on the computer at this point, except that the website tells me to him. & LC = on & CC = US & DLC = in & Submit.y = 5 & Submit.x = 3 & lang = to & CC = US <-link to the Web page for the model #.

    I'm basically at a loss on this one, so if someone feels scroll line-by-line of their brains on this one, I'd be very happy.

    I have a pretty strong understanding of computer repair, so feel free to give me something to try.

    If you need more information out of me, let me know as well.

    Try to clear the CMOS again but this time remove CMOS battery and hold the power button on a few seconds. Replace the battery, then try to start back to the top.

    At the back of the pc is the condition of the PSU led green or flashing?

  • Vista OS does not load. I tried booting and the load screen bar continues to work without success. When you run the start he stops to c:\windows\system 32\cmd.exe that I don't want to lose my files so I have not reinstalled. Any suggestions?

    Vista OS does not load.  I tried booting and the load screen bar continues to work without success.  When you run the start he stops to c:\windows\system 32\cmd.exe that I don't want to lose my files so I have not reinstalled.  Any suggestions?

    Restore point:

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.



    If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do 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 it.

    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.


    Data recovery, if/before you reinstall:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.


    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.

    See you soon.

  • Windows does not start after the update...

    Hope someone can help with this,

    I just installed the update sp1 for my computer for Windows Vista Premium Home dir all installed with no problems, but when I restarted my pc, Windows wouldn't start. The only thing that is on display is a black screen with Windows Error Recovery on top, then he said "Windows does not start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. I tried to restart it in different ways, but nothing. Then he said: I have to insert my OS drive to try to fix, but that's not even start. Everyone knows about this problem? This has happened right after that I installed the update...

    Are you able to boot from your Vista DVD or recovery partion and run the Startup Repair tool?  If you do not have a Vista disc so make sure that your computer is configured to boot from the CD drive before booting from the hard drive.  Once you start with support for Vista select the "Repair your computer" option and first run "Startup Repair".  If that is not correct the problem then boot with Vista support and select the option "System Restore" and choose a date prior to the update install.
    Once you are able to boot normally again, then I suggest that you are looking for virus\malware.  SP1 was released in April 2008.  So if you install earlier means there may be other problems on your system.  If you have a backup of your current personal data then I recommend to do a clean restore to install\factory.  Then immediately install antivirus software, and then do all Windows updates before installing other software.

  • M127FW MFP: Computer does not start after the installation of the MFP M127FW

    My computer does not start on my hard drive after installation of my new printer MFP M127FW unless I have first of all disconnect the USB cable between the printer and then turn on the computer.  My BIOS is set to boot from my drive hard, not from a USB key, so that makes installing the drivers M127FW MFP and software do on my computer?  I guess it has something to do with the Smart Install feature.

    Two iMacs does not start after the 10.11.4 update.  Progress bar starts moving and then text appears on the black screen saying unexpected sigkill to launchd.  He then gets stuck in a loop trying to start.  Tried to reset the SMC and LANDAU.  Without success.  Started in recovery mode and ran disk utility.  Discs said OK.  Chose to reinstall OS X from the list of options in the recovery mode (assuming it would be 10.11.4).)  Installation is finished but still once does not start.  Reinstalled on 10.11.0 successfully from a USB key and downloaded the 10.11.4 combo updater.  Installation seems to work, but once again, the macs will not start.  Same 'unexpected launchd sigkill' error.  A mac is now back working properly with 10.11.3 the other will be shortly.  Is there a problem with the accession?  Our COMPUTER support use Munki to get updates from one day to the next.  Fortunately, we were able to stop it before the other 20 or if Mac had the same problem.

    More information: two bricks iMacs were late 2013 models.  A 21 "and a 27.  We have just updated a test iMac which was a late model 2012 using the 10.11.4 combo updater.

    Hi dhanushm,

    1. What happens after the Windows logo screen?
    2. You receive an error message?
    3. You have security software installed on the computer?
    4. Have you performed an installation clean Windows XP and even after that this problem exists?

    Method 1

    As the computer starts up fine in safe mode there is a possibility that some third-party programs installed on the computer is the origin of the problem.

    I suggest that you configure the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See section to learn more about how to clean boot.

    How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State
