Preferred Solution: Laptop has been stuck at this

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Laptop has been stuck at this

I was confused that Factory install was Vista , but Boot Logo shows XP as you stated later , so you are running XP now ?
 
Either way , that error code usually happens within XP and can be contributed to the hard drive or actually booting fully.
 
Have a look at this other similar post answered by Hamluis previously that fixed the same issue , if it doesnt Post Back.

Hello
My laptop is Dell Inspiron 14 N4050.
The problem is why it stucks in BIOS and cannot go to windows after I tried installing Windows 10 last time. That time the screen showed "there is not complete drivers inside". After that when I shut down forcefully and turn it on back the screen appeared in blue color and saying please call technician.
 
These happened after I send my laptop to a Computer shop for reformat. Then backed home I downloaded the new Windows 10 OS and after completed the laptop cannot be used. I think maybe the shop that I send my laptop do not put all the drivers. and the result my laptop cannot be upgraded and now cannot use anymore. many files located inside and I cannot take them back. so sad. please help me.

A:WHY MY LAPTOP STUCK

First thing to do is run an extended hard drive diagnostic - the root of all the problems could be a bad drive.
F12 at powerup.
This system doesn't have official support for anything newer than Windows 8 -- though some have reported 10 will install and run (the audio is the part where the drivers usually fail).

I proceded to clean it and put it back, but now when i use it it stays down instead of springing back up. It's not really causing a problem (isnt typing repetitive spaces or anything) its jus kind of annoying. How can I fix it?

My mom was updating her laptop and it told her to restart her computer to finish updating. She restarted it and a message came up saying "Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. Do not turn off computer." It froze and she restarted her laptop again. It went back to the same message and is stuck on it. Does anyone know of a way to fix this?

A:Laptop stuck

Try bringing up the Advanced Startup Options by tapping F8 as soon as the laptop is turned on.

Then highlight "Last known good configuration" and press <Enter>

Hopefully that will get you into Windows but it won't solve the update problem.
It could be caused by malware so please post on the malware forum as we aren't allowed to help with malware on the non-malware forums.

Hello I'm using a HP Pavilion dm4. My laptop's battery seems to be stuck, I usually remove it when I use the laptop at home where it'll be plugged into the socket. I inserted the battery back in one day and I can't seem to remove it now. The latch is all the way to the left when the laptop is upside down where the opening of the laptop is facing me. Is it supposed to be on the left or right? The latch seems stuck and I can't move it to the right.  helpp meeeecheers.

A:Laptop's Battery seems to be stuck

Hi Tycobb,    I found your post because I just had the exact same problem, with the same computer.  The latch for the battery should be all the way to the right when the battery is plugged in.  You'll know if it's in the right place because you'll see an image of a battery under the latch.  I honestly can't give you a technical answer on this, however, I was just messing around, and I got a hold of a membership card for a store....the same type of card you'd "key" a door with.  Anyway, try and pry out the top part of the battery outward.  Be very gentle and careful.  I was worried I would break it, but once I got a good grip, the battery just popped out and the spring-loaded latch went to its' correct place.  I only did this because I have a warranty, and I was willing to take a chance.  Maybe someone else will have a better idea, but this one worked for me. Good luck! Max

I got someone's old laptop with Win XP on it.  It has a lot of problems which I was going to ask for help in another thread, but now I have a new problem.
 
I ran a CHKDSK while in Windows, and it told me it couldn't complete in read only mode.  I set it to run the next time Windows starts.  Now it's in an endless cycle of scanning.  It will scan (which takes hours), reboot and scan again.  If I hit a button to skip the scan, it hangs and won't start Windows.  If I try to boot to Safe Mode, it hangs as well.
 
The last thing to load before it hangs while booting to Safe Mode is:
WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\aswRvrt.sys
 
I'm lost, I don't know what to do at this point.  Any suggestions?

Hi,
 
I'm struggling with this, hope you guys can help.
 
Sometimes when I go to Start -> Power -> Shut down, it displays the "Shutting down..." window, then the screen goes black, but the laptop won't turn off completely. That is, the WiFi, Bluetooth and Power (light bulb) indicators are still on (and the battery indicator too if plugged), and I have to force (power button long press) the laptop to shut down. I can also turn off the WiFi and Bluetooth devices using the keyboard at this stage (with FN button). And if I keep the laptop this way long enough (unplugged), my battery will be completely drained.
 
I say sometimes because this seems to just happen randomly. I could shut down my laptop at some point and it will turn off just fine, but a few hours later when I shut it down again it will get stuck.
 
I googled and tried everything I could come up with but nothing seems to work. I tried 1) taking the laptop apart, disconnecting and reconnecting literally everything I could see, 2) cleaning my laptop, 3) resetting Windows and BIOS to factory settings, 4) replacing my SSD and installing Windows from scratch, and 5) formatting my HDD. Googling for solutions I mostly found people suggesting disabling Fast Boot so obviously I did that too.
 
The only change I made before this started happening (at least that's what I remember) was disabling hibernation (cmd admin -> powercfg -h off), so this may be related, but I'm not sure. This seems hardw... Read more

When a laptop is starts, you usually would usually see something like the following:
1) "Windows is loading files..."
2) "Starting Windows"
3) "Screen where you log into your computer"
4) "Computer Desktop"

However, what I saw when I started the computer was the following:
1) "Windows is loading files..."
2) "Starting Windows"
3) "Light grey screen where I can see and move only the mouse cursor"
and an intermittent low volume cricket noise (for lack of better words)
4) no change from 3)

Someone gave me a free refurbished version of ASUS U50F-RBBAG05 because it gave the above problem.
So, despite being a noob (but not a noob noob) at fixing computers, I tried to make a clean install of Windows 7.
However, the laptop decided that it didn't want to install the software--(clicked on install button and waited 3 hours).
The laptop just stayed at 0% progress.

So, I was like, "Okay, so let's TRY to restore this thing back to factory settings via Recovery Partition."
Although I waited on the Light grey screen for about 30-60 minutes, I finally got to the screen that I needed.
Alas, although the laptop did "start" the recovery process, it ended up the same--0% progress and did not budge

I know that the Windows 7 installation disc was not the problem--I had 3 other installation discs (all legit).
Since the laptop decided to not move from 0%, I figured that getting the ASUS res... Read more

A:Laptop stuck at startup?

A "cricket noise" and Windows failing to load during startup is a good indication the hard drive may be dying.

They don't last forever, and they tend to have a shorter life in a laptop than in a desktop.

I was originally seeking help in the Vista forum but managed to find out the machine's OS is actually Windows 7, here's the original message with some updates:
Machine isn't mine, we borrowed it from our uncle for my sister to use.
After a couple weeks it stopped working out of the blue, she tells me she was using it one night and it had little battery left and it ended up running out and the machine shut down and she went to sleep, next morning it wouldn't boot.
I imagine the problem is the battery, I used Hiren's BootCD to test it a bit and everything seems fine, I ran a bunch of tests with Mini Windows XP and only thing that seems out of place is the fact that it won't detect a battery when using one of the apps it has that deals with the battery, the laptop does work without being plug in though so I don't know if that's really it.
I tried recovery mode on startup but that doesn't work either, it just goes back to bootlooping.
It's a Compaq.

On the Vista forum someone told me to try Startup Repair with a Vista disc since Vista is the original OS of the machine, obviously it didn't work since it has Windows 7 installed now.
Should I try the same with a Windows 7 disc for starters?

Any help would be appreciated.

Boot into Win7, download, install, update and run full scans with your AV, Malwarebytes
and SUPERAntiSpyware.

If prob persists run a few Startup Repairs with reboots, report back results.

Then if you can remain booted work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 especially establishing a Clean Boot, checking logs for repeat errors, tapping the System resources given, testing hardware - you'll have it resolved if you complete them all since if nothing else works it shows how to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is much superior to the bloated corrupt Acer preinstall which smothers Win7.

If you lose ability to boot, work through these other steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

I have Windows Vista on my computer. In the boot menu there were three options on which OS I could use. I could either choose Earlier Versions of Windows, Windows Vista or Windows XP Professional setup. In advanced system settings I set Windows Vista as my default OS and then checked the box so that it would wait 0 seconds before booting up. Now it is automatically booting up to Windows XP setup. It starts windows but then stops and I get a message that a .sys file could not be found. It makes me restart my computer and then it automatically enters into the same setup. I can't get out of this loop. I tried putting in a recovery disc and having it boot from my CD drive. Nothing is working. How can I get my computer to boot with Windows Vista instead of the bad setup file? I don't care about losing the information on the drive. I just want to be able to use my computer. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Unfortunately I have a work laptop I have to use. I'm running Win7 to write this but I had a few BSODs and it's put me off. Anyway, I can't find the original install files to blank everything and start again (rosettaStone language pack discs & excel)

I've already upgraded the HDD. RAM is 2GB, CPU is dual ~2gb. Win7 experience is 2.2. I've also used TuneUp to check nothing I don't need is running on startup. I've defragged including the pagefile.

As you can imagine XP has got bogged down. I'm running TuneUpUtils and this has definitely improved things a lot but it's such a shock to go back to compared to fairly fresh install of Win7.

It turns out that this laptop isn't actually compatible with win7 and Dell offer NO drivers for it. All the drivers are from intel and microsoft. I guess I shouldn't risk it any more with this laptop on Win7.

I guess what I want to understand is why a reinstall every year or so has to be the only way with everything... just to hard to go the other way...

So I decided to restart my laptop, and when it started to restart the computer screen went black and the laptop shut down and when I turned it on, it would just get stuck on the hp logo turning on and off. What can I do to Fix it?

A:Laptop stuck on hp logo

Hi @Littletigger35 Welcome to the HP Support forum. Happy New Year ! This is happening because the computer cannot successfully and fully load Windows. This may be hardware problem or software problem. Did you perform some change recently ,something new these days, last hours before the issue started ? Perform hard restart/forced reset. More info and how to here >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01684768/    Please, perform some basic hardware checks 1. Please, shutdown the computer using the power button2. Power it on.2.1 As soon as you press the power-on button, immediately begin hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).This should open a HP Startup Menu which may look similar to this one 3. Choose F2 to open System Diagnostics. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform System Test >> Quick test.This will check major hardware componets for issue (do it just in case) . Here is more info >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259#AbT1 If there are no system checks/no quick tests, perform HDD and RAM check. Let me know the test results. If the tests pass without issues, continue. If not, please, let me know 4. Repeat steps 1-2 above but when HP Startup menu opens, please choose F11 for System Recovery options.The computer should boot from it's recovery partition to open you various recovery options. Note, that F11 option will only work if the recovery partition is there (not deleted... Read more

I'll go ahead and mention that this might be on the wrong forum as this machine might have had another OS installed but I could find out that this had Vista from the factory (which version of Vista I couldn't find out) so I guess this is my best bet.
Machine isn't mine, we borrowed it from our uncle for my sister to use, computer illiterate as she is she can't even tell me which OS it was using (likely W8 but I never touched it either and asking my uncle about it wouldn't feel right).
After a couple weeks it stopped working out of the blue, she tells me she was using it one night and it had little battery left and it ended up running out and the machine shut down and she went to sleep, next morning it wouldn't boot.
I imagine the problem is the battery, I used Hiren's BootCD to test it a bit and everything seems fine, I ran a bunch of tests with Mini Windows XP and only thing that seems out of place is the fact that it won't detect a battery when using one of the apps it has that deals with the battery, the laptop does work without being plug in though so I don't know if that's really it.
I tried recovery mode on startup but that doesn't work either, it just goes back to bootlooping.
It's a Compaq.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try running Startup Repair: Startup Repair: frequently asked questions

Do you have a Vista install DVD you can use to attempt repairs? If not, post here and ask Peter (Ex_Brit) to send you the link to the versions of Vista you need, 32 or 64. Include your E-mail address mucked up, like abc at xyz DOT com then edit your post and remove it as soon as you receive the link.

The ISO Peter provides has both SP1 and SP2 applied.

Using that, follow the directions in the link I provided.

Dell Inspiron 1525 - Windows Vista

Yesterday I tried to turn off my laptop, but it got stuck in the "logging off" process.
I turned off manually and turned it on again, but when it starts it says Resuming windows,
and goes back to the logging off stage...
Please advice.
Thanks!
 

A:Laptop stuck in logging off - Please help

That problem was addressed at this forum and the poster did get a fix. Worth a try I suppose.

Hi All, I looked in this forum for a solution to this exact problem others had but couldn't find any.  As with others, my CD went in, somehow got stuck all the way inside, and can't be extracted.  The drive opens, empty.  I checked for a screw on the bottom (based on an answer I saw) but didn't see any.  Any other suggestions for this model?  It's a ProtectSmart -- I didn't see any product number. Thanks ahead for your help  Julie

I see 4 video drivers two are nVidia and two are Intel. Which of the four drivers is installed?

Since there are a few models with different letters after n550jk, it would help if you posted the exact model and not just the broad model name.
