Okay, so a friend came and asked me about her computer and I don't have any idea about what it is. The computer is a HP Pavilion dv2000 with Vista.
She told me that her screen had turned a bunch of red, green blocks and such all over randomly and then she powered off. Then it started up, going to where it loads, then nothing. Now it doesn't turn on at all: the lights are on, there are no beeps, no sound at all coming from it. The LCD for the wireless is set to red, too.
The AC adapter, when plugged in, does make the light go on.

Re: Computer wont boot. LCD are on. No sounds at all.
Yup. Please try to remove the battery and use ac power. Please try to turn it on and see if it is still the same. It is safe to put the battery back in even if the laptop is on. Hope this works. Thanks.

Sounds like you need a windows vista operating system disc. The recovery discs set your system back to factory settings like when you first brought it home from the store. But to me, the system is bloated with all the software and trial junk that you don't need. If you can get your hands on a Vista Operating System Disc, then do a clean install from it. Just make sure your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) sticker is readable so that you can activate the vista once you've got it loaded. If you can't get your hands on a system disc, take it to a computer repair shop, I would think you could find one that will load the operating system for $60 or less.
Oh--now I understand. You are using the restore disks for your computer. It sounds like you did the correct thing, but try this: Do the whole thing over. After the last disk is finished and it wants you to restart the computer, remove the disk from the drive and see if it boots OK. It almost sounds like you were told to reboot the computer and when it started it asked you to press any key to boot from the CD and you did. Don't do that--just let it go on its own. Let us know what happens.
Hook a spare monitor to the computer to insure there is no problem, if everything checks out okay,the problem is in the Samsung screen display and is not cost effective to repair, far cheaper to buy new. But if both screens show the same problem, it is a video graphics card issue in the computer, one further thing if the video cord is detachable from both ends, sub another cord.
systems32 is part of operating system. and your computer is corrupted. Only solution is to reformat your computer by installing fresh operating system. Don't worry, you can borrow from any of your friend his EXTERNAL CDROM or DVD DRIVE to reformat your computer.
No sync could mean the computer is generating signal at a frequency that cannot be supported by the monitor. As soon as Windows starts to boot, press F8 to display the boot menu. One of the choices will be VGA mode. Select it, boot into Windows, then set your resolution/refresh low. Reboot into normal Windows mode. If you now get display, then set the resolution/frequency to your liking (as long as supported by your monitor).
(1) Mmake sure both cables running from it are plugged in. Turn off your computer and unplug it first or you could blow your monitor or something else.) (2) Push the button on the front or side of the monitor if it has one. (Different monitors work differently). (3) Does it make any kind of electric sound when you turn it on? (4) Can you hear your computer boot up? (5) Does it work on a friend's computer? If it works there then ask your question again explaining that. (6) Are all of the dials set properly? Helps if you have a manual. (7) If it still won't work it's probably "kaput." (8) If it does work on your friend's computer could be your graphics driver or graphics card.
what your describing is a hard disk failure the computer cant or wont read the hard disk to boot the machine, so it shuts down. Sounds like the hard disk died from a bad virus. and the computer wont run. Best I can do for you is either format the Hard disk and reinstall the operating system or buy a new hard disk. Cheers

You my friend have a bad backlight. Inside thes LCD monitors there a little tiny flourecnet lights that help the LCD project the images so that you can see what is being displayed. Sounds like your backlight has gone bad. These can be repaired, but can be costly! These things happen often times, 90% of the time I am replacing the backlights to various monitors. Sorry, but I am certain it is your backlight!
