How do I fix blue screen in dell zino 400 desktop?


What was the last thing you installed on it? Go to safe mode and remove that instillation. Also I would suggest downloading three service programs and run them in safe mode as well
Superantispyware (free edition)
Malawarebytes (free edition
Advanced System care (free edition)

If you still get the issue then back up your data and then do a system restore.

We have a Gateway Laptop running on Vista. Turned it on this morning and got the "blue screen of death" that said it had a Fatal Error KnownDLL 000021a and a bunch of other numbers. We read that...


Just press and hold F8 on startup (before the Windows logo appears). You should get the screen with the title Advanced Boot Options and the following menu. (which I get on my Gateway NV5915h)

Choose Advanced Options for: Vista (Windows 7 on my Gateway NV5915h)
(Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)

Vista boots just Black screen with cursor even in safe mode


Yes, this is a known issue with Vista. You need to back-up your data, format your hard drive and re-install Vista from the beginning.
There is really no use trying to repair it: it is damaged.
After you re-install Vista, do not forget to install service packs from microsoft.com.

Start Normally (black screen with options)keeps re-loading itself


If you can't get into windows normally or into safe mode to try to restore the system back to a date when it worked properly then you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and start the system from scratch.

Toshiba satellite laptop comes on and stays at windows xp page


If Safe Mode doesnt work then you may have to do a "repair" of your O/S. Place your Windows XP CD into the CD-Rom drive, reboot and once you see the options if you want to Install or Repair - choose Repair. This option will make repair to your O/S and for safe mode.
Once repair is complete do a complete Anti-Virus and Spyware scan of your Hard Drive. If you can boot into Safe Mode to run the ani-virus much better.

Can't get to login window


Blue screens are normally critical errors. If you have loaded any new hardware to your computer lately or some software packages you will need to uninstall them.

Try starting windows in safe mode by pressing F8 continuoulsy until you hear a beep. This will start the computer in safe mode and everything will look big on the screen, ignore that for now. While you are in safe mode uninstall anything that you have loaded prior to this error. Be it software or hardware.

If you have not loaded anything recently then try restoring your computer to an earlier time when you know that it was working with now problems.

Once safe mode boots go to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that the computer was running okay. Once the restore has taken place the computer will reboot. If asked what mode you want to start in choose start windows normally.

Hopefully this will help you resolve your problem.

My computer will not reboot


this will either relate to a hard disk fault or a corrupt driver or registry file, if you cannot get into safe mode, or last known good configuration, you may have to run a windows repair using your XP cd

Black screen comes up "windows did not start successfully...." choose from safe mode, safe mode with networking etc Last known Configuration or Start Windows Normally. Computer then tries to...


You should opt Safe Mode:
  • On the black screen just navigate throug up and down arrow keys.
  • Goto Safe Mode and press enter.
  • It will boot your system in safe mode.
If the boot is success full:
  • try to remember any software or hardware you recently installed/change. Then remove/uninstall that software/hardware. Also remove some device driver like Video/Audio driver and make re-start. and try to normal boot. If success then install your audio/video.
If no success then I think its time to re-install your windows.
Please post your feed-back.
