Laptop stuck

Q: Laptop stuck

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?

Preferred Solution: Laptop stuck

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.)

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
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 would check and make sure that the lock is not enabled on the E-Dock.  If you look at the bottom of the right hand side near the rear is a switch.  If you haven't tried already make sure that the switch is not set to the locked setting and then check to see if you are able to eject the notebook.

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.

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

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.

I would try the startup repair. Startup Repair does the bios see your hdd, by bootloop do you mean that it shows starting windows then reboots.

So i decided to do a clean install of vista which worked out pretty well until i updated again.

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:

I was able to go online and download the Windows 10 upgrade and used my purchased legitimate license key to activate my the upgrade.  While doing the installation there was some HP software that was still on the HD. I thought it would be good to have some extra security protocols, so I also installed the WinMagic Securedoc Bootloader v1.2.12 and registered the HP Drive Encryption  with password and Security Questions for secondary access. The Windows 10 was activated and all looked great. But when I restarted the laptop I put in my password for windows and then it goes to this HP Drive Encryption Screen comes up. I put in the password and it's accepted - and then the screen goes blank...not off..just blank with a flashing cursor that doesbn't react to inputs. I tried leaving it on for a day or so, and still nothing.  There's nothing I can change in BIOS Setup that works so far.I've also tried downloading Reimage on USB and re-setting the boot sequence but no good.

A:Used Laptop HP HDD upgraded to Win 10 Pro with key now stuck...

Sorry ... I missed the part about you having a Win10 license.  I thought you were trying to activate 10 using the HP OEM license and that was causing problems. I don't use the HP encryption apps -- as personally, having recently finished a career in InfoSec, I find the whole emphasis on encryption of PCs to be laughable -- but my guess is that you're basically out of luck. If it were my drive, I would WIPE the drive of all its contents and then install Win10 afresh.  A good product for doing that is DBan:  http://tiptopsecurity.com/how-to-securely-wipe-your-hard-drive-with-dban-erase-your-data-for-good/ Once your drive is clean, then just install Win10 on it. That said, with any luck, one of the HP EXPERTS will probably come along and tell you how to bypass their encryption. Good Luck

I have a sony laptop that will get stuck in hibernation. Hitting the power button does nothing. If I hold down the power button it will start fine. Removing the battery and pluging it back in also works. Also the fan stays on when in Hibernation. It almost seems as though the laptop never goes into hibernation all the way. This results in a battery drain.

I've tried the following to resolve the issue
1. Checked power settings, they seem to be normal.
2. Took battery out and held the power button for 30 seconds.
3. Left battery out for several mins.
4. Same thing happens when plugged in with AC adapter without battery

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...

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.

Hi all

I just run NAV 2004 on my laptop and got a some viruses cleaned off and also run Spybot as it was running sluggishly. Standard stuff I do it all the time. It is now stuck in a loop where just as soon as you hear the windows startup jingle it logs of and says saving your settings then the jingle then log off and so on and so forth.

Same happens when booting to last known good configuration and safe mode. On a couple of scandisks it repaired about 20 files which I think were in the prefetch folder.

When I run the XP recovery console it asks for the administrator password then it just leaves me at the command prompt - is it not meant to do something then?

Help me guys!!! :-(

Please help...my HP Pavillion Entertainment PC dv7-3173nr working on Windows 10 has all of a sudden developed these blue and sometimes multi-colored horizontal and vertical lines running through the screen and then it reboots. Sometimes it will work properly for a few minutes before doing this. it also gets hot at the bottom fairly quickly. What do you think this is and how can I fix it?

I inserted a software CD for a wireles HP printer using the CD/DVD tray and when I opened the tray to take the CD out the CD did not come out and is stuck inside my computer.  The tray opens and closes normally but the CD is stuck inside.  How did I get the CD out of my computer?

A:CD stuck inside my laptop

that depends on what kind of notebook you have, a model number and serial number whould be helpfull, alot of the new drives are held in by 1 screw which is on the bottom of the notebook. if you slide the drive out maybe you can get the disk.sherwin1986 wrote:I inserted a software CD for a wireles HP printer using the CD/DVD tray and when I opened the tray to take the CD out the CD did not come out and is stuck inside my computer.  The tray opens and closes normally but the CD is stuck inside.  How did I get the CD out of my computer?

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
