Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
It sounds like it's probably the power supply. Computers require more power to boot up than they do to keep running, so if it's fine once it gets going, the power supply may just be dying. If you have a multimeter and know what you're doing, you can test the power supply connectors to see if any of them (especially the ones leading to the motherboard) are not giving the proper voltages.
What you kight want to do is take your computer back to the store that you bought it from. If you still have the warranty, then they should be able to send it to a repair company and you will have it back in at lease 2 weeks.
You problem is caused by the computer wanting to boot up from the CD drive.
When the computer starts up, immediatly start pressing F-8 (or what ever will take you into the Bios sometimes F-2) this will take you into the Bios of the computer.
Once you are into the Bios, this is where you will change how the computer boots up.
Right now it is booting up from the CD , so you will want to change it to boot up from the Hard drive,then click keep changes. Shut down, and restart back up again, you should be ok then
Hope this helps
i think that you need to go ahead and boot the computer by a help of operating system cd ,and once it boots up try to repair it .it will give you an option for the same ,
if you get any problem u can get back to me and i will assist you on the same ,
Do you want to try and see if a 'Linux LiveCD' boots? This is the way I test if the computer works. You burn this CD to a disk, and then boot off of it when you're computer starts. I will not modify anything on your computer as long as you go to 'Try Ubuntu with out installing'
Don't worry, I'm not trying to get you to install anything, just see if it boots into the 'live environment' (means you are running it off of the cd) If this works, that means that it is only your windows installation is messed up, and a reinstallation of windows should work fine with a Windows install CD NOT the recovery cd.
is it a new graphic card? Sometimes that happens when the graphic card gets overheated and fries up some chips. and sometimes those lines appear when the graphic card has fault in Direct Draw. Try setting your BIOS settings to default. if it doesn't work, i recommend you to take the graphic card to the nearest hardware tech ;)
If the the laptop is failing to boot very early in the4 boot sequence, then this usually points to a failure somewhere on the motherboard. There are a few test you can run to try.
1) Try downloading the following Diagnostic program and running it on your computer. The download makes a bootable CD, and you can try running a bunch of diagnostics on your computer with out having to boot into Windows. You can test memory, the hard drive, and other things.
2) Try replacing the memory. Sometimes bad memory can cause a device not to boot.
3) If neither of the above suggestions work, then I'm afraid you will need a new motherboard.
