I don't have a Internet connection at the computer site also if windows won't open how can I open my browser to get on the Internet?
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 8 months ago.

You stated that you were able to get into "Safe Mode". That means that Windows is opened.

Please, follow the instructions below:

- Plug the computer into the modem or router with a networking cable.
- Turn the computer off
- Turn the computer on
- Start pressing the F8 key on the top of the keyboard
- At the Boot menu, choose Safe Mode with Networking
- Hit the Enter key three times

When you do that are you able to access the Internet?

I was wrong when I said I could get into save mode I can only get to the windows error recovery screen when I enter any of the 4 modes it tries to start but returns to the error recovery screen again.

Thank you for the clarification. May I ask for the brand and model name of your computer?

Vista home premium
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 7 months ago.

Thank you for your patience. Do you have the model name of the Averatec computer? There are several different models that match what the description that you gave.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Model no. Averatec all ln one/A2 part no.: D1133AH1E-1 factory no. 2 (05/2009)
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 7 months ago.

Thank you for the update. I have found that model. You can perform a factory restore, which will erase everything on the Hard Drive and Reset it to the same state it was when you first purchased the computer. After the restore is complete, your files will be gone, but Windows will work. To be totally clear, if you do the reset, it will erase your files on the hard drive. After it is complete, it will be in the same state as it was when you first purchased it.

In order to run the restore, do the following:

- Turn the computer off and on.

- Start tapping the key responsible for Recovery. The key will either be the F4 or the F5 key. (If that doesn't work, try F12).
- From there, you can choose to do a factory restore/reset.

- Once that is complete, the computer will reboot and you will be all set.

I look forward to hearing your feedback concerning whether or not your problem is fixed.

I hope to hear back that all is working. If this is so, please do not forget to rate my help on the top of this page (choose the number of stars and click the Submit button). If it is not, please respond below.

I will be standing by,
Jason
