XP wont load/Computer wont start

Q: XP wont load/Computer wont start

Nothing will load on my Compaq Presario 700 notebook. It wont even turn on in safe mode.
When I go to turn it on it sounds like the hard drive attempts to spin. I don't hear the fans, but all the lights come on. The battery is fairly new and everything is plugged in properly.
All this began when I was running Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and it locked up forcing me to shut down.
Any ideas?

None of my internet browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, mozilla or the new one that comes with Windows 10 will open or load. Also when I click on my Windows start button it does nothing as well as the dialogue next to it that says I'm Cortana ask me anything. I have run Malwarebytes anti-malware and it has identified 0 threats. I have adware antivirus but it won't run. Any help would be appreciated thank you!

A:Computer wont boot, wont boot in safe mode, wont load repair centre

Hello there,
It seems like you did not perform a clean installation of Windows and that's why your system is acting up. 
Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive. 
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.
4. Accept the Windows license agreement.
5. On the “Which type of installation do you want” page go ahead and choose the “Custom” option.
6. Select Drive options (advanced) on the “Where do you want to install Windows” page.
7.  Select the partition that you want to change, choose the formatting option you want to perform and then follow the instructions.
When allocating space choosing the default MB size for your drive is typically the best for most users since you want to take full advantage of all your disk... Read more

A:Computer Wont Load up frozen start up screen RAM problem

Hi sorry you seem to have a poor impression of techs lets hope we can help you and possibly change that, 2 things come to mind,the slot is bad ie damaged in some way or the ram is,when you tested the ram in the slot did you try only 1 stick, try 1 of the others in it if it works ok then it is the ram that is the problem,if not then it is the slot,you can run with 1 less stick of ram,also check that the ram all matches as this would throw up a similar problem

When I start up my pc, I get a screen that says, "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully, a recent hardware or software change may have caused this, ….etc."
Then I am offered with a bunch of options to either:

1) Start in Safe Mode
2) Safe Mode with Networking
3) Safe Mode with Command Prompt
4) Start Windows Normally
5) Last Known Good Configuration

None of them work, the safe mode ones, show a bunch of lines of code as per normal when starting up safe mode, then it freezes and stops and eventually goes back to the screen mentioned above. Same for 4 and 5, windows blue loading bar screen comes up, then the screen turns black and nothing. After a few mins my computer restarts again and goes back to the screen mentioned above.

Yesturday my vista was working great, and on the screen as i went to shut it down said "updating files do not shut down computer 3/3 100%" but it stayed like that for 4 hours, so i turn it off manualy once i turned it back on the next day it asked me for my password i put it in and as it was loading it was vey slow and would take 5-6 minutes for programs to load up.

Also when i go to click on like my internet it dont work, not even my games work, they try to load then freeze. So i did a scan on it and its still having this problem. After i got frustrated i went to shut it down again and it says "logging off" but stays like that for hours, so i have to manualy turn it off. Now with internet issue, it works in safe mode with connection, but not in my normal screen. WHY IS THIS DOING THIS?

So I turn my computer off one day only to find it wont start the next day. I open the case up and see the led is on. I flip the switch on the power supply off then on and quickly press the power button. My computer starts but the following time I shut down the computer it again wont start and now the led is blinking. I've never had any issues like this before, any help would be appreciated.

I don't routinely use many usb devices, only my mouse and keyboard and every now and then my ipod. I figure the issue is likely either the power supply or the motherboard. The ps is almost two years old while the motherboard is only about three months old.

A:Computer wont start, power supply wont start, blinking led

It sounds to me like your PSU is the problem, get a hold of another and plug it to your computer and see if that will make it start, if it doesn't it might be BOTH your motherboard and PSU. A bad PSU will burn a motherboard.

my computer wont boot and still it wont display.
i already changed a video card and stil it wont.
it have no beep at all and it will not display.

what should i do?

A:guys my computer wont start and wont have a display

does it beep any. if not this will indicate more major problems. (unless you dont have beep speaker installed) a mother board is programed with a set of beep to play if there is a problem like such as three beeps if the ram is not working, 1 long beep if the vid card is not working etc etc. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOUR BEEPs WILL BE. if you are not getting these then you need to find out why. see if you have a speaker inside your case. if you do and all of your fans spin but still no action from you pc then you may have a larger problem such as mother board or processor.

Backstory (skip if you need)
I'm fixing someones laptop, It was slow and taking 30 minutes to startup, i did the usually virus scan and restarted, then it was stuck in an auto repair loop. I used a windows 8 Install CD from microscoft. None of the options in it would work, install (key doesnt match) reset (missing partition), image recovery (cant find an image), restore (no restore point), etc.
Used command prompt, did stuff like bootrec, bcdedit, diskpart, and chkdsk. After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows. I reset/reinstalled the OS completely. Fixed, restarted, running smooth. Owner said it was working great for a day, then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop.
It's stuck in a preair loop, I can't even boot from the 8 CD! Have it configured in the bios, it shows the the blue windows logo then the screen goes black for 3 minutes and a blue screen flashes for 1 second saying  "Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart. Collecting some info (0% complete) search online for error: 0x000021a"
The weird thing is, Windows 7 disks boot fine, but it's "not compatible". And if I physically remove the HDD, it will boot into the windows 8 CD. So I put the HDD back in (while still at the command prompt) and it wont take my commands in related to the C: . I get a "System cannot find the drive specified"

A:Windows wont load, Boot CD wont load, Automatic Repair Loop

I got a windows 8.1 disk made and it allowed me yo boot from the CD, but it's SLOOOOW, it takes minutes to load reset or w.e (none of them still work), or open the command prompt.
I ran chkdsk /f /r /x but it didnt help. chkdsk /r ends with:
"A disk read error occurredcc0000185
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream."
Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
Next I tried bootrec.
/fixmbr - succesful
/fixboot - succesfull
/rebuildBCD - Total identified Windows installations: 0
/scanOS - Total identified Windows installations: 0
Next bcdedit
Nothing worked "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."
Next sfc /scannow
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."
"Windows resources protection didnt find integrity violations"
BCDBoot c:\WindowsFailure when attempting to copy boot files
Next diskpart - but I forgot what I did before that may have worked. All i can remember is I had to select a disk or volume, and do something with it.

Tried this last week with a 333fsb pc chips board. Didnt work figured the board was broke, bought a new one for my friend cuz i felt so bad we couldnt get his computer to boot. Its the biostar m7ncd (not pro) it has up to a 400fsb ( Anyway here is what we are using.

1gb stick of 333 2700 DDR ram (house brand) also tried swapping it with my old stick of 512 ddr ram that I got at best buy still didnt work.

geforce ti 4800se (albatron)
samsung 100gb hard drive
mitsumi 54x cd burner
biostar m7ncd
athlon xp 2700+ with volcano 8 heatsink/fan

tested all of those parts minus the processor in my motherboard and they all worked fine.

loaded windows xp professional sp1 on his hard drive in MY computer hoping it would boot on his... no such luck. It says "safe mode, safe mode with networking, last known good config, start windows normally" after any of those are selected it takes a second then it goes back to the geforce card bios screen (restarts)

I set the FSB to 166 and the bios shows it now as a 2700+ and the ram it says is ddr 333 which it is, however it only displays it as one gig of ram if I disable quick boot, then it either says its 2gigs or half a gig. Every once in a blue moon on a start I get a cmos checksum error however the ram works in my m7vig biostar but it runs as 266 ddr ram cuz of the 266fsb max on that board.

A:Disc Wont Load On Start Up

For booting the Windows CD, it may be that you need to change bios settings in order to get a boot. Shut your system down and power on, during POST (Power On Self Test - this is the bit before the Windows splash screen), press F2 lots, and the setup menu should load. If not, try the Delete key, then some other combination of mashing the function keys to get the right one.

How your Bios is laid out, depends on your motherboard, but the aim is to enable CD Boot, (usually simbolised with a tick against it), and prioritise it above Hard Drive. This will be on the main screen, or in a seperate boot menu, the commands for editing selections appear along the bottom.
I was looking around for something similar to your error and found;EN-US;328874

It seems whilst this is not exactly your situation it may be worth following

I occasionally have the same problem with my laptop but never at the same time. Which leads me to believe it is not likely my router. Would that be correct?

I had this problem just yesterday and found the solution (i dont know if its the same cause for the problem in all reports but its the same symptoms as mine for sure, i have XP tou)

here is a closed thread about it that didnt reach a solution, i hope mine works for most ppl that had this problem (i hated it lol)

Anyway the thing is i downloaded FileAssassin in someone else's laptop and tried to kill the only process in my task bar that I didnt recognize (after looking for it it, before erasing it, it was one of nod32's dll) earler in the week my nod32 installation froze mid way tru, I didnt mind it but when i noticed earlier today that i had ekrn in my taskbar i tried uninstalling it but i couldnt (before i thought it didnt install so i didnt bother again with nod because i was busy), thats when i downloaded FileAssassin.

FileAssassin couldnt kill it by normal means so instead i set it with FA to erase it upon reboot/reset, all the esset files that i couldnt delete normally, i think it amounted to 4dlls in my C Esset folder and my C Windows Prefetch folder

they all had EKRN in the file name so they were easy to spot using windows's search function.

I have a windows 7 notebook that won't load into windows or load safe mode successfully its ends with a black screen and hangs forever. System restore wont even fix it. What command can I use to troubleshoot this other than reinstalling windows. Thanks

A:windows 7 wont start up or load safe mode successfully

If you have an install disk and can access Setup (possibly tapping F2 as you switch on) to change the Boot order to CD/DVD before the HDD, then insert the disk - Save and Exit, it will then reboot up with it and you will be prompted to press any key to boot from CD/DVD.

Select the Repair option and then Startup Repair in the Recovery Environment.

It will give you the option to select a restore point which you can opt for or pass on that and let it complete the Startup Repair.

If it reports that it was unable to repair, then you could give the restore point a try.

Not sure which forum to post this in as not sure what the problem is.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro running Windows 7 SP1. It shut down due to Windows updates and when it booted up again it just hung on the Windows icon but wouldn't load. Eventually it asked if I wanted to run a repair which I did but it said it couldn't repair it.
Using F8 I found that I could boot into safe mode, and safe mode with Networking.
I ran the System Scan which said that Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
I tried to do a restore to a previous point but it said I didn't have any points to restore to.
I then ran a CHKDSK which came back saying volume is clean but just hung for hours. I eventually forced a shutdown but now it wont load at all even in safe mode. When I try to load it, it just hangs whilst loading windows files.

What do I try next? Help.
(I also have no external drives or devices attached)

As with many 'proprietary' built computers, you don't get a DVD of Windows ... which makes it near impossible to recover from disasters such as you are experiencing ... instead, you were expected to make your own 'recovery' disks. Your manual would/does tell you how.

If you don't have a set of recovery disks, then I can only advise contacting Toshiba, or, maybe install Linux.

my sisters computer is infested with viruses so i downloaded malwarebytes and mse and updated them, i changed her computer setting to safe mode and rebooted and was planning on trying to rid some of the viruses. now the computer lists all the drivers it's loading and freezes after it gets to drivers\CLASSPNP.sys
it sat there for about 10 minutes so i restarted it and it gave me the option to start windows normally, or in safe mode. if i choose the latter, i get the same problem as above. if i choose to start it normally, it lists all the drivers like before, gets to classpnp.sys, then goes to a black screen saying the computer is loading in safe mode with minmal services. then it goes to a black screen and just sits there. All i did really was change from normal startup to safe mode now i cant load windows or something. Anyone have an idea?

Lets start from the beginning..this is the kids pc and it wouldn'r boot W2K stating something was missing (I can't remember what this was as I started trying to get this machine going over a month ago)...long story..erased the HD and was going to reload W2K. Would boot up far enough to say it couldnt read drive A. Went into BIOS and changed it to boot to CD only....starts to load and shuts down - then it won't power off.----> Sometimes it will power off to reboot and sometimes not. Once I actually got it to start booting windows to have it stop 1/3 of the way in. So I thought HD...they had a crappy 6.8 gb in there anyway. Replaced HD today added memory and I am still having the same problems. I am thinking power supply, motherboard or processor. Where do I start without feeding excessive money into this project and pulling all my hair out?

Everything was fine, shut down the computer etc. Today I went to turn it on and windows will not even load. The start-up screens come up and it says there was a power-failure could not start properly perhaps due to software/hardware changes. However it wont even start in safe mode, none of the options work the computer just reboots itself and goes back to the same screen.

It got to the stage where it needs to restart so it done that started the configarations and once it reached 100% it restarted.

Since then what happens is when i press power on the samsung logo comes on the screen then the black screen with the windows picture then the bsod comes up for around half a second and it restarts. then it constantly does this.

The whole cycle only takes a few seconds.

Ive tried booting in safe mode but this isnt working so I downloaded kav rescue on another computer and saved it on a flash drive, But it wont boot off this either.

Today I noticed that I could not open my start menu with neither the windows button, ctrl + esc, or a click of the mouse. I've also had a problem the last couple of days saving/opening files in one of the programs I used to make music. I tried to go into safe mode to do system restore, but the safe mode didn't boot. It scrolled all the system files on the screen but then just stopped and nothing happened.

So, I tried the other option (forget what it's called) that lets you perform various other system restoration tasks. I brought up the system restore screen from there, but got an error that said something about corrupt files so it could not perform the restore. I checked again, and all my restore points had been deleted.

Lastly, when I click computer, all the drives are blank with no names beside them, only the icons. I can still click them and they seem to be functioning normally, so I don't know if there is a relation to this. I don't know if some registry files were deleted or if there is some other problem. I didn't notice the start menu/safe mode/blank icon issues until I just recently installed the latest windows update.

Sorry if this seemed a little long winded, but I would appreciate help from anyone.

While playing very visually demanding games (Battlefield 1942, Medal Of Honor) I would keep gettin those dreaded blue screen of death thingies. I would get one of 3 errors. One said, "IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_TO_OR_LESS_THAN" another said, "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" although im not quite sure about the NONPAGED part, i know it said non something. And the other one I think I only got once and cant remember exactly what it was, it had something to do with IRQ.

Now on all of them it said it was shutting down my pc to avoid hardware damage. Which it did, I had about 3 seconds to read the screen before my pc shut down.

A:My roomates computer wont load URL's

Hello Bug,

Sorry to hear about your Roomy's troubles. Several things she should do first just out of principle. Update definitions and run a complete virus scan. If any viral activity is found, post the name of the virus and the location of any uncleanable files. Download, update and run SpyBot Search and Destroy from the link in my sig. Be sure to close out all browser windows before doing the scan. You can also run adaware too as it sometimes will find things that SpyBot S&D won't. Once you've done all that, reboot the computer. Download Hijack This and post a HJT log for us to look at.

Edit: We may not find the problem by doing this, but at least we've eliminated a bunch of things from the list. So, lets give it a try!

Hey Everyone.

My dads computer has just stopped working for some reason. I can normally figure out why it doesnt work, but this time I cant..

So this is what i've done.

I've started up my dads computer, it goes to the black screen with "Safe mode" "Safe mode with networking" etc etc. I clicked the bottom one (Load micrsoft xp normally blah blah blah)

It gets to the start up screen, then it just restarts itself. I thought, huh. Lets try Last Known Config, but it restarts itself like I stated earlier. I then tried booting it in safe mode, and safe mode command prompt. It still doesnt work, but what I did notice, a blue screen with some writing pops up just before it restarts, but you can read it because it restarts after like a less than a second.
My dads computer is a Windows XP pro by the way.
Thanks everyone who helps me.

I use an HP a720n and lately I've been having some problems.

A few days ago it started to make the noise that it makes when shutting down (maybe the hard drive stops spinning). It would do that several times and basicly freeze up. The mouse will still move but programs can't be opened.
Now it won't even boot up. An error message appears that says file windows/system32/config/system can't be loaded.

I run 2 250 gig Western Digital Hardrives and do a lot of video editing, but the external drives have there own power supply. A few months ago I installed an extra 512 stick of Kingston Ram, and it ran fine for months before it started recently acting up.

I have posted on another site for help but I am getting slow answers and I want to get more or better feed back.

My computer crashed last night and failed a physical memory dump. It will no longer load appropriately, in that it takes 15 minutes to load safe mode or regular. It has a click then beep in a very consistent pattern. it is not rapid but consistent, this only occurs when trying to boot the computer. When I do get the computer to load in safe mode or regular it no longer shows my files, images, applications, and documents. Instead, it shows an NPR-User with basic factory style programs such as CTest. However, when I go into the start menu and click computer the hard drive shows the exact amount of free space as when i was using my computer before the crash. WIth advice from the other site I have created an ubuntu cd and selected the Try It option. It can not recover any files as it only shows the NPR-User and Ctest files. I am a college student, I dont do anything ridiculous with my laptop, I need it for school, and I need help.

Hi and welcome to TSF,

You have no backups at all?

You can try unhide it may be able to recover the files if hidden link below:
Unhide.exe - A introduction as to what this program does

Backup immediately if files are recovered.

If you go to the driver update pages for your toshiba on their website it may have an update for your hdd firmware.

Some seagate drives have suffered from this and update is all that is required to eliminate only known it on dell studio's tho.

You have checked the second hdd to see if any important data is on there?

The only menu i can seem to access is the system setup screen if i press ctrl alt del then tap the f2 button.
I also cant find my windows disk (i bought my comp brand new about 5 years ago but i dont think it came with a disk)

I read that replacing the battery in side the pc could fix it, is this true?

I have a LG R500 running windows Vista home premium it was also the originally installed OS and came pre installed on the system and has never been re-installed.
I belive it is 32 bit and is almost 3 years old and is running the factory power supply LG 90 W.
Im not sure about the CPU, Video card, or the motherboard.

What is going on is when I turn the computer on the microsoft Corp loading screen comes on then the blue screen of death (or at least that what I think it is) flashes for a split second to fast to read it then I go straight to Windows Error Recovery screen. If you try to start it up normally again the same error occurs. I have launched the startup repair and it tells me Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. So I have tried everything in the system recovery options except for the command prompt becasue I am unfamiliar with it. This error occurs in safe mode as well. I have not tried any of the other options except safe mode as I am unsure of them.

Hi all,

For a while in our house we were using only US Cellular Broadband connect, which is essentially a mobile 3G USB adapter. We uninstalled this from all the computers when we recently got Charter cable internet which is being broadcasted wirelessly with a Netgear cg3000d-rg. I know that the US Cellular broadband turns off wifi connectivity, but we made sure to uninstall all the drivers and software. We have 2 comps running XP and one Macbook, all able to connect to the new router. One Acer Aspire One is the holdout. It connected wirelessly fine before, but now will not work. It says it's "connected" and assigns an IP, but no matter what browser it will not load any webpages.

Hello everyone! I have a fairly big problem, or atleast I believe it is? I recently bought a used Gateway Computer. (It runs on windows vista service pack 2 & no disk came with it.) Everything was great for a week or so, until I started to watch netflix & received an error saying I need to uninstall Microsoft Silverlight & try to watch another movie so it could prompt reinstallation. I done as it suggested, but when the computer went to restart it wouldn't load past the windows screen. I shut it down & when it restarted I pressed F8 & went into safe mode w/networking. After some research I attempted system restore (starting at the last point before the update & ending with the last restore point I had available) but it didn't help at all...I then tried the "repair your computer" option from the F8 menu, but it loaded up to a blank square (instead of user profile) that said other user. I've tried all the users on the computer, but get the same error "the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I had to remove the battery to get the computer to shut off, I had no other option. I started the computer in safe mode again & attempted the Gateway Recovery, but it restarted & took me back to the blank square page...The computer isn't apart of a domain, so I'm pretty much completely lost...Please someone, anyone help!

Do you notice if the screen flashes a quick blue before it restarts?If it does, go back to the Safe Mode menu and select instead Disable automatic restart on system failure. The computer will try then to boot normally. If booting should fail and 'bluescreen', the PC will display it instead of rebooting. If possible, take a picture of it and insert it into your next reply. Otherwise, type in what it says.

Is there any way to fix this? I did not get windows disks or anything like that when I bought the computer, I did create recovery disks, but have since lost one of them, so they aren't much help.

It's going to be difficlt without the XP CD, as that has the Recovery Console that we need in order to get your computer past the logo screen and into the OS.

Hiya all,
My problem is that I rebooted my computer and it now wont start up. I did not change anything and the reason I rebooted was because of a network issue unrelated to the computer.

So here is some details.
gigabyte mobo (dual bios) ga81pe775 pro
4 x 512mb ddr400 ram
sata and ata hdds (4 in total)
pentium 4 3ghz processor
I removed all of the ram and inserted one stick in slot one to make sure it was not the issue.Retry loading and it does the same thing.

It loads up and freezes when it gets to the memory test. I tried each of the sticks of ram individually but no problem.All display the bios menu and then it stops.
Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions or theories of what might be happening?
Thanks for your time.

Not this computer, obviously. My mothers computer will not start past the second screen (saying Core-cell). Her computer runs on windows xp. This happened after I was removing files from the C drive, specifically multiple game files and placing them onto my flash drive. During this a pop-up came up with something about an important windows file being deleted, I was already finished so I cared too little about this ever so important message. I ignored it and continued to transfer the files onto my computer. Well needless to say, when my mom found her computer, it was already off, so when she attempted to start it it stopped after the second screen. I thought no big deal, ill just get out my handy windows xp- drivers and utilities (to repair it). And to my dismay nothing occurred. Nothing at all, restarted it multiple times (manually of course) with nothing but the same blue screen staring into the abysmal "Core-Cell." Not all is lost right? It is after all, just a repair disk! So I attempt to install vista, don't ask me why I thought a disk would work after the first one failed so miserably. Regardless, the same result. I attempted other things, furiously mashing the f8 key and for some apparent reason decided the f12 key had not been particularly good to me lately, so I mashed that too. With my limited knowledge, I even tried to enter the BIOS, knowing fully that if I managed to get into it, I would not know what to do from there. So all in all, I looked ... Read more

Its always a good idea to post all hardware specs, this way we have
a better understanding of your system. The specs also include the
power supply wattage and brand.

Did you install the cpu cooler as per instructions? Is the cooler the

Those push pins can be tricky. What I do is turn the pins until there

Push them in until you hear a click. Then turn it to the full close

well yesterday the same problem occured so I opened the box and took out the Graphics card rubbed it with the rubber and slotted it back in. I now try to turn on my computer and not only does the screen still not pick up any signals it is now beeping it starts with 1short beep then 1 long beep, reocurring. ive made sure that the graphics card was insterted properly.

I tried all four of them. And nothing happend. It will just continue to restart.

What do I need to do? Should I take my computer back to the store and refund my money? Or am I ****** out of $200??

Thanks for reading!

Ok so my computer stopped loading my user profile so i had to log into safe mode to try to fix it, but ended up restarting my computer and now my OS wont start and all i can do is diagnostics, BIOS and boot devices, i have an option for recovery but it doesn't work, when i select system recovery the screen goes blank, and i left it for 3 hrs like that to no avail. I have an HP Pavilion dv11730- us and Vista SP2 Home Premium.
Thanks in advance

Hi -

You need to boot up the system with your HP Vista recovery DVD. If you did not burn one, you can obtain replacements from HP for about $30 -

Hi and welcome. Unplug any external devices besides the keyboard, mouse and monitor, and try to restart.

If that doesn't work, you might try another power supply.

When I put my computer on a black screen comes up saying windows has no successfully done something .... ect I get things to do like. Start windows normal, safe mode, with network, with command prompt, start windows last working point ect ... Whenever I select one of them it restarts flashes a very quick blue screen of death and restarts to return to the screen so i'm stuck in a circle.

I tried hitting R to repair to OS when I put the disc in and it was examining the HDD for about 4 minuites is that to long? I restarted it ... because I wasnt to sure if that is how long it takes and I was worried about loosing data. Sorry for the really bad explaination, any ideas?
