You're going to have to restart the install with your recovery disk. It probably didn't properly finish writing to the hard disk and is failing due to a read error on the file it was working on at the time.

Try using the disc and restarting the entire process. :)

Hi, I updated the BIOS on Acer Aspire 5740G Laptop, Rebooted the system , System wont start, Black Screen NO DISPLAY, Please help ,me resolve the problem as i need my laptop Urgent to finish my assignment

It sounds like the BIOS may have failed, which is very difficult to fix unfortuately. If a corrupted BIOS will not allow you to boot at all, you will either have to have the BIOS chip removed and flashed manually, or replaced with a new BIOS chip.

There are other possibilities however.

Do you hear any system beeps at startup? If so, that generally indicates your BIOS is still functional, and one or more BIOS settings may have been corrupted. If this is the case try hooking the laptop up to an external monitor. If your BIOS flash changed the screen output settings it might be preventing it from displaying on the laptop LCD.

As far as getting your assignment, you can put the harf frive into a destop computer and retrieve your files that way for the time being.

To remove the hard drive:
***Unplug the Laptop and Remove the Battery*** It may appear to be off, but it's better to be safe than sorry. On the bottom of your laptop there is a panel in the shape of an 'L', which should have 5 screws. Unscrew all 5 screws and remove the panel. You will see your harddrive in a metal cage. Remove the necessary screws and remove the harddrive by sliding it out of it's connector, then lifting it out. You should now be able to plug your HD into any computer with SATA hookups (make the connections with the power off). Now you should be able to power up the computer and access your files.

Hope this is helpful!

The laptop wont take a charge and there is a constant bleebing sound coming from the power pack itself. So I cant turn the laptop on at all. Any ideas?

Your power supply may have died. You should probably have this looked at by a professional or just purchase a new power supply.

PC wont last more than 30 secs on. It shuts off and is not transmiting video. I have an nvidia 6200. Pentium 4. Tried new batt on BIOS, it made no difference. I had given up and didnt use it for a year....

Hi Good day!! OK based on your troubleshooting, maybe the problem is on the board, maybe your board is over heating, try to check your cpu temperature at your bios setup. but before that pull out your Hardisk because we were testing only the board.
42degree = normal temperature
60+ degree = not good
90degree = critical state
100degree = boiling point and it will shutdown.

Ep45-ud3l dead socket??

Just to make sure go back through and remove everything not needed as a startup boot. Just put one stick of ram and make sure it is seated, nothing extra...just video card if not integrated, mouse and keyboard. tap the key that gets you into the BIOS and make sure that the HDD has been "initialized" prior to trying the first time boot. If it is a new drive, there is a disc for initializing the drive. Good luck

Compaq C502US laptop wont start

take out the hard drive from the laptop completely. See if you can turn the laptop on and have it stay on. If it does then that new hard drive is defective. Also be sure the battery is not hooked up at all either. Try another known good working hard drive if you can as well.

Every time i turn on my laptop it turn back off

Is it plugged in to electric? Does it act diffrent when on only battery and when plugged into power adapter?

Have you tried "blowing out" and vacuuming all vents for airflow?

You may have a component that is overheating (a common symptom of electrical damage from dirty power, and/or lightning).

Laptop manufacturers recommend, for someone who understands the dangers of static electricity, that the main components be disconnected/re-connected.

We offer these suggestions, to help you, but cannot be held liable, to ANY degree, for accidents arising from your efforts.

I have a HP NC 6120 laptop.I have the batt in and the PS plugged in.All that happens is the Charge Light Blinks yellow 6 times then green 1 time,repeats.At the sametime the power light comes on for 6...

Remove the battery and then press the power button for 45 sec then refix the battery and check that the machine is turning on or not?
If the laptop is not working on AC alone then this is the issue with the converter which is there on the motherboard.

Startup problems

Have you considered it could be the battery has died. Have you tried external power? If the battery is OK then check the battery contacts to make sure they are clean. Has your power supply died and it won't power the laptop or charge the battery? It could be the motherboard but I'd put my money on it's power supply or battery. Without more details being supplied.
