Preferred Solution: pc dont load past windows sign blue screen crash+cant boot from cd

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Okay, so here's the deal. I had Windows Service Pack 2. Everything was just lovely, then I decided to FINALLY upgrade to Service Pack 3 because some high end Adobe products I was installing suggested it for better compatibility. Aiesh, so I took the plunge and tried to upgrade to Windows Service Pack 3. I was smart because of all the horror stories though and did a full backup up all my data including system state, etc. I set a system restore point, the whole nine yards. I upgraded with no problems but when the computer restarted it do so, got past POST, and the windows boot or load screen popped up with the loading bar. . . but windows never loaded!

A:Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

Hi sirdanceal0t,
I had a similar problem when Windows XP SP3 was released it was only designed for Intel processors, so if you have a AMD processor it will cause your system not to load, if you are running a AMD processor if i were you try and get back to the System Restore Point or if that fails reimage your pc and just before installing SP3 looks for the patch/fix for your processor model, then install SP3 and it should all be fine.

On the other hand if you have a Intel processor i woulldn't know what to advise.

We are using Windows XP Pro, no service paks, and it won't boot up past the blue windows welcome screen before you even get to log on as a user. It is almost like it gets caught there and won't go any further. We have tried reseating the RAM chip, checked the mother board for possible problems, and pulled all the USB devices. We tried using the windows boot disk to repair the OS, that only initiated a reboot and back to the above mentioned issue. We tried booting in safe mode...it still wouldn't get past that point. We tried "last known good configuration", still the same result.

She is an older computer, but she has always been our most reliable system and she does things our other computer won't do...we would really hate to lose her. Any help would be very much appreciated!

A:Won't Boot Up Past The Blue Windows Welcome Screen

Cristy, Do the following.

Your CMOS may be corrupt. Go into the BIOS setup screen and copy down all the settings as you want them. with the power off, open the unit and move the CMOS erase jumper to the clear position for however long the instruction book say to leave it there. Move the jumper back to the normal position and turn the unit on. The PC should report something like CMOS error -- defaults loaded and the real-time clock will be reset. Go into the BIOS setup and re-enter your desired values. Let us know what happens.

Thank you Jitaa

I was getting what I thought was the google redirect virus. I ran a malware scan but it did not find anything. I had this problem once before and we had used combofix. I ran combofix and after it scanned, all of my icons were gone. I rebooted and now I can not get past the blue windows startup screen. I can not boot into safe mode either. I read several posts but got conflicting information on whether or not to run the recovery console. Also, I read that this could just be a missing registry file. I can not access info on the computer for more information. I do know that it is a WIndows XP Pro operating system.

ALSO - I have tried to boot from my XP disc but it does not show me the C:windows XP Professional with a repair option. It shows C:partition1 [NTFS]

I have an hp pavillion ze5185 laptop and when I turned it on yesterday, it started booting up and just paused at that blue Windows XP screen (just before Windows plays it's dandy startup music). It wasn't frozen - I could move the mouse arrow around and everything - but no keyboard keys would register, not even my favorite Ctrl-Alt-Del. Left it for hours and it still didn't get past that screen. Turned off and on multiple times, tried loading default setup values, starting in safe mode, and it still wouldn't get past that screen.

This may be connected to the problem, who knows: recently a blue screen of death has been popping up whenever I was using the laptop and then the computer would restart itself. The blue screen said something like, "It's ok if this screen pops up once but if it happens more often then do something about it." My brother said it was an overheating problem.

When I try to open the DVD drive at this blue screen, it'll open for me! Wonder if that makes a difference...

I can enter PhoenixBIOS if I press F2 before it gets to that stupid Windows screen. Let me know if you helpful computer geniuses need any more information! Please help!

If you had "real" Vista, you could use System Restore straight from the DVD but you might need an XP CD to sort this one. First, though, tap the Function 8 key when you reboot and select from the Advanced Boot Options "Disable automatic restart on system failure". Post back some of the detail on the blue screen and someone will help.

Hello!

My mother's Toshiba laptop is less than a year old, and has been acting up lately. She doesn't download anything on it apart from windows updates, but she does have it set up to use a proxy server (through a legitimate service) so that she can watch her beloved BBC here in the U.S., which is mainly all she does on the computer.

It suddenly started freezing/sticking on the blue welcome screen with the spinning circle when she tries to boot. (Sometimes it acts like it's doing something, sometimes it freezes. I left it for upwards of half on hour to see if it would finally get to the desktop, but it didn't.) I've tried starting it in safe mode with and without networking, to no avail. At one point, through logging in/waiting/closing the laptop/opening it again and such, I was able to "change user" and login, which did get me to the desktop. However, I wasn't able to do anything before it froze completely. Ctrl/Alt/Delete didn't help.

I'm hesitant to try anything else without asking someone who knows a thing or two! (I thought of re-formatting the hd, but unfortunately don't have a windows 7 disk.)

Any help would be very much appreciated! She's going through BBC withdrawals, and I'm at a loss. Thank you!!

Pretty soon startup was very slow going from the Dell screen to the lock screen to the password screen to the windows welcome screen but windows would eventually load. Now the startup only goes to the welcome screen. That little circle of dots starts spinning and keeps on spinning but Windows never loads. Did I erase some registry files when I cleaned it? I got on Microsoft's live chat support who said they could fix it for 99 bucks but I don't have a dollar much less 99. Does anybody know how I could fix this for free myself?

I also wanted to know how load Dos from win 8.1 and how to boot win 8.1 in safe mode.

Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks y'all!

Hi Breedlove, Welcome to Eight forums.

Found a link for you. Step By Step How to Solve Windows 8.1 and 8 Black Screen Issue upon boot | Virtualization blog

In short, you have to go to Safe mode and disable the graphic card and monitors and then reboot. If this resolves, fine. Else, update the drivers for your graphic card.

I have owned my Toshiba Laptop for 4 years and have had no problems with it.
I loaded Keperksy virus programme from PC user disc and the next time I turned my lapptop on it loaded and came up to a logon screen for windows xp. I have never had this screen come up before in the 4 years that I have owned it. I have tried escape, enter, all the passwords that I use and noting has worked.I have tried all the usernames and even the previous persons username and all I can get is the desktop screen with no icons on it, if you know what I mean.
I downloaded boot discs and can load to the A: prompt, I can change this to C: and even Windows but the only command that seems to work is Dir.
Can someone advise me as to how to get my PC back to normal.
I have tried to boot using F8 in safemode but when it loads it goes to the logon screen. It loads Windows for about 10 seconds and then logs out.
I have no original discs for using to reload windows xp.
It is the Kaspersky programme that has altered something.
I cannot get into my PC setup to type regedit at the run command.
Thanks in advance
 

A:Windows XP won't Load past Logon screen

I have a friend with exactly the same problem oldtoyboy - so I'll watch this thread with great interest!

I searched the forum and found this thread... but as Safe Mode does exactly what you're describing, I'm in a similar situation.

I feel it is a virus as it has occurred to two identical computers my friend is running on her home network... too coincidental and as her answer to "do you have antivirus?" was "I think so..." I'm not sure as to her level of protection before I came into the picture.

I think we'll need a virus boot disk (I think PC-Cillin used to do one years back)

Before anyone asks I'm not sure of the system specs of the computer in question. I bought it cheap off of a friend and he's doesn't remember the specs and I can't get into it to check them.

When I start up the computer it loads with a new loadup screen (did not happen till after the problems started). The screen says Asus Motherboard A8N-SLI Deluxe. It then goes to a screen that shows PCI device listing . . . I'm not sure what it all is for. At the bottom it says "A disk read error has occurred" "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. Occasionally it skips this screen and instead goes to the windows 7 Splash screen, but regardless of which it goes to I can't do anything else except restart the computer.

When I press F8, F10 or F11 it goes to either RAID Utility or Setup Utility and then I can't get any further with it without restarting and the aforementioned problems continue.

I'm fairly certain it's a virus, my computer was showing signs of a virus in the days leading up to this problem but as Malwarebytes failed to show any problems with the computer when I scanned it I ignored the problems. I'm also aware that all I may be able to do is wipe the harddrive, and I'm fine with that. I just want to be able to use it again, though if it can be fixed without resorting to this I would appreciate it.

Hi, the day before the problem started, my AVG picked up a virus alert. I simply clicked "heal". Next time i turned on my computer (windows vista service pack 1), i typed in my password in the login screen and it said "welcome". That apparently never changed However, safe mode does allow me to log in to my profile. I suspect the boot sector of the hard disk is damaged. Can anyone help..? Thank you.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C850 - 1GL laptop with windows 8.1 and every time i try to load windows i get to the login screen and the laptop crashes. I cannot enter a password to access my account, restart or anything. I have to turn the laptop off with the power button.
I managed to access the bios and used a windows 8 disk, but i can't use any of the options for example automatic repair, refresh and system restore. I get a message saying the drive where windows is installed is locked. unlock the drive and try again.
I try to use the reset pc option but I get a message saying unable to reset your pc, a required drive partition is missing.
Has anyone got any ideas?

Yesterday all seemed to be working fine. I was using my custom built PC to study. One of my subject was to learn about Adobe Flash so i needed to download flash professional.
I downloaded this and the Adobe Creative Cloud, used it for a while whilst studying, then turned off my PC.

Today i loaded PC and found it will not load past windows login screen. I enter my username and password, t says welcome, thinks about it for about 30 seconds, then i just get a black screen. My mouse pointer is on the screen and i can move it around the screen, but there is nothing to click on - its simply not displaying anything at all.
To try fix i have done this:
I CAN load in safe mode. Everything seems normal when in safe mode.
In safe mode i have deleted the adobe products that i downloaded.
I have tried windows repair, it did somethings, but then it booted W7 again and same thing happened.
In safe mode I have tried to re-install drivers from motherboard (ASUS Z97-pro)... seemed like some worked and some didnt... suppose because its in safe mode drivers are limited - same with graphics card drivers (Radeon R9280)...

I cant work out WTF is going on! and its driving me nuts!

Can anyone recommend my next steps?

Hi all,
I've been having big trouble with my computer and have been unable to fix it. About a week ago my desktop computer began doing this. Everything loads as normal to begin with and I get to the windows load screen, but then the screen blacks out, and then reappears with a pixelated version of the dotted loading circle and no windows icon above it, just a black screen.

I have gone through advice elsewhere and done a system restore - to no effect. I have disconnected all my devices during startup (flashdrive, mouse, keyboard) to no effect. I have also tried downloading the windows 'MediaCreationTool' (recommended by microsoft for this though I don't know why), installing it onto a flashdrive and loading the computer with the flashdrive inserted - no effect. I finally got to the stage where I've cleared the computer files and attempted to go through the windows re-install but it froze before the install and is now back to the same loading screen as before when I turn it on. I can access can access the BIOS menu when I hit delete as the computer loads and could access the repair screen when I hit tab, but it now wont load for some reason (after about 20 tries).

This started after a Windows 10 update tried to install itself a few times (for some reason it had asked to install the update 3 times and I let it do it each time) but this should not be an issue now I have reset my computer back to its original settings.

Hi,

First, I am not what you'd call technically literate....

I have an emachine m6809 laptop. Earlier today the machine seemed to freeze up and I ended up shutting it off by pressing the power button. I left it off for a number of hours. Now I can't get past the blue Windows XP screen that is divided in half where you click to enter and begin work. All the keys are frozen. The only way to turn the machine off is using the power button. I can't seem to get past that.

Any ideas?

Hi, When I start my computer, after logging in the blue screen appears and says "please wait whilst we load your settings". This is as far as it gets, I can only use the computer in Safe Mode. I have done a system restore, but that didn't help. The system has been running slow and I have run Malaware and Spybot and followed the advice given. Before logging off yesterday, Microsoft Security Systems informed me that I had over 100 problems and I ignored it as I was running late and switched the computer off, thinking I'd "clean" it today.

Anyone know what the problem might be and how to get rid of it? Thanks very much for any advice.

I can boot ok in safe mode and the odd time can boot normally but for the most part I can't get back in.

I was online last night and got some weird popups from my virus scanner that said scripts were blocked so I clicked ok and went to do an online virus scan. When I got to trend micro and clicked the link I got an error that said the exe file was not a compatible win32 file. I knew something must be up as I had used it several times before. I revolted and my computer kept looping. I got in through safe mode and did a sys restore and rebooted. Everything seemed ok so I did the virus scan and it found 5 threats so I fixed those and it required a reboot and since that I can't get back in unless I am in safe mode.

I also ran chkdsk and let it fixed an error there but I am again stuck at the blue welcome screen.

I am running win xp home edition
Computer is a toshiba satellite P20 laptop

Any idea how to fix this issue? Does it sound software or hardware related?
