Exclamation Help computer will no longer boot up

I recently installed defrag 2 - all was well and the program would do its thing while computer was idle. I decided to switch on the boot time defrag as well and on next boot up received error that boot time defrag could not be started.

I have been away for a week and on return switched on the comp and iobit boot time defrag cycled through the list of options - all looked ok, no errors and computer continued to boot up as normal. I lost my mouse due to batteries failing I assumed and changed them. Could not get mouse to get going so did a hard restart as by this stage lost keyboard as well.

Now, computer will not boot up at all. Before I take my machine to the doctor is there any steps I could take to get my machine booting up again. Power looks ok - though there is no signal going to monitor so computer not getting very far at all on boot up.

Help! :(

Are you unable to boot using the safe mode... (repeatedly press the f8 key while booting)?

You can use the system disc that came with your windows and boot from it... then repair your system using it.

Live long and prosper!

F8 no response - win7 disc no response though disk drive light flashes on when power up. It's like the keyboard/mouse are no longer read by comp. I will plug in an USB mouse/keyboard maybe? The setup I have has a wireless keyboard/mouse (Logitech). I'll post backů

Default Hi gigijord!

I bet your Bios is set-up to boot from the hard drive always. Please see this helpful article.

Sincerely,

I'm sure I've changed the bios previously to boot to hard drive before DVD (after installing win7).

I can't get to bios screen either just a big black nothing, not looking good at all.

Comp is at doctors I will post the diagnosis for posterity's sake.

Thanks for your replies.

Hi gigijord
Have you checked if the batteries in your mouse and keyboard are in working condition - how old are they?
Cheers

Hi gigijord
Ok then that possibility is out of the way
How about your power settings? Do you remember? Do you have a key on your keyboard that is called "wake up"?
How about the CMOS battery? Is that very old?
But you said you had sent it to the repair-man, right?
It will be interesting to hear what he/she says
Cheers

Ok computer all fixed - $275.

Good news is I didn't lose any data and windows installation is fine. What happened is computer over-heated and video card fan had stopped working all due to dust accumulation. New video card, power supply and clean up.

So, apologies to iobit for implying it was their program. It was a coincidence that the last thing the old computer attempted to do was defrag - it was primed and ready to blow at any moment.
