Does any other monitor work? if not than the video card may be bad. or the settings in the bios may be altered. first try this...unplug the tower, open the case and remove the bios/real time clock (RTC) button cell battery, press the power button to dissipate any voltage that is stored. Re-install the battery, plug tower in and power up. If anything was changed in bios everything would go back to default settings and you would have to enter set up to update date/time etc.

POS X Evo TP1 A1N screen appears to be off, but power is on


first of all check your monitor. it would be the best if you can plug some other monitor just to check... if your monitor is OK then probably you VGA is bad and you`ll have to change it.

Getting detecting array message


And what else? If the system just hangs at detecting it's expecting to find an array of hard drives attached to the system. Do you have an array that it can boot to? Does it load the OS finally? Was it working before? Did you make changes to the bios ro the array controller bios?

You need to be more clear than that. You say detecting an array? What kind of array? When does it say that? Do you mean you have an array of hard drives installed? If so, then so what?

COMPUTER WON'T START


Make sure you do not have a floppy disk in the floppy drive, if there is one. Also, remove any CDs or DVDs in those drives, and remove any USB jump/flash/thumb drives from those sockets too.
Then try again.

Desktop turns on but won't continue after password screen


So I'm assuming that this computer's OS is Windows Vista (since it's a new computer) correct?

With the computer off, Turn it back on and Press F8 a couple times right after bios screen.
You will be launching your computer into the "Safe Mode" , when the list appears.
  • So Select Safe Mode with the arrow keys, and Press -ENTER-
  • Once it boots up, and after you see the Desktop...
  1. Open Start menu and begin typing (in the little search-box at the bottom): cmd
  2. You should See a list appear right above with the results: You should see cmd.exe
  3. Right-click on cmd.exe and select "Run as Administrator"
  • You should see a black command prompt appear.
  • In here you're going to type the Following Command (without quotes.): "chkdsk /F"
  • so that is: chkdsk then ONE space and then /F
If chkdsk asks you if you want to check the drive next time Windows Vista boots or dismount the drive choose to check the drive next time Windows Vista boots. Never choose to dismount the drive. That option should only be used by a professional.

So reboot the computer, and let it boot up normally. It should show a chkdsk diagnostic screen, DON'T press any keys on the screen, as in doing so will skip the checking.
So let it do it's thing, it may take a little while, but not too long After it is done, It should reboot your computer again. So let it boot up normally again, Now try logging on Normally as you usually would.

Tell me if this helps or not. I'll be here to assist you further if you have any troubles.

Thank you for Reading.

Computer will not boot.


Form the info you provided, you have a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) disk array. RAID 0 (striped disks) distributes data across several disks in a way that gives improved speed and full capacity, but all data on all disks will be lost if any one disk fails. Apparently Diagnostics has determined that “Drive 2” is defective. You will have to replace the defective hard drive and reload the Windows operating system.

If you can get in setup after pressing F2 check on the advanced chip tab,video and make sure 8mb buffer is selected. save and exit.

F-2 is for setup utility
F-10 is for network boot.

if it stll won't boot up correctly press F8 when booting up and select vga support then maybe get in to the os that way and adjust video display settings after.
