Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Can't boot past post screen

\015 Clevo D800P laptop, win xp pro, 3 hard drives, 2gb ram\015\012Just bought laptop, had it up and running, downloaded my games, set my favorites, everything was just fine. Shut it down and went to bed. Got up the next morning and started up the laptop and couldn't get past the ''Hit F2 to enter setup'' POST screen. Now it goes to second screen ''Hit CNTL+F to enter FastBuild utility'' and then it just goes back to the first screen and stays there. One time it went to ''Entering Setup'' but then just stopped. I have been writing to all sorts of help places and nobody will answer me, not even the Clevo site. I really would appreciate help on this problem, I like the computer. Thanks, Georgia\015

Answers :

Is this a brand new laptop? If so it appears windows has crashed and you will need to use the recovery CD/DVD. I would take it back if it's new as that should not have happened so quickly with a new computer. If it is used and you don't have a recovery disk then it gets a little more difficult.You will\015\012need to get a windows system disk or install disk and boot up with this\015\012in the laptop to load windows whatever into your hard drive and set\015\012your laptop up to run on the new drive. Here is Microsoft's tutorial\015\012on how to install and set up\015\012windows:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/winxp/default.mspx
