Sure..the text is fine..select the safe mode option at the top..if that does not work, then you are looking at a system restore or hard drive format..hope the data is backed up

My laptop turns on but when i enter my pc password it does not do anything it says strating up but it does not start up


First thing to try, start up in safe mode. When power on, keep tapping F8 key till text screen menu comes up. Choose Safe Mode.
You will see bunch of text on screen then it will take a while before asking you to log in. (2-3 mins?)
When logged in, do a system restore.
Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore..
Choose to restore, choose a recent bold date when you know it worked, click Ok (or continue, forgot what it says there..) Let it do it's thing.
This will reverse any recent change that may have caused the problem.

If will not start again, then repost for more help.

My emachine wont boot it gos to salect safe mode our normal and wen u click one it shuts down and gos back to the select screen again


Bad news. Probably your hard drive has crapped out.
If you plan to replace the drive get a Seagate brand. They cost a little more than the Western Digital, but they last alot longer.

Restart your computer and keep pressing F8 and choose safe mode from the menu
once you enter safe mode,click on start->settings->control panel->system and then device manager
and under display adaptors,disable your display card and then restart it again and see if it works

Inspiron 1520-before finishes loading desktop screen goes black..


if it works fine in safe mode you should try a system restore . most of the time a problem that gos away in safe mode is driver related . IE software don't think you have a hard ware issue. you can call dell if you do not have the disk . 1-866-751-6079 call this number it's dell's Spanish tech support number but this is the fastest way to reach a real person at dell . just ask them to speak English and they will.

Displays work fine until After Windows splash screen appears...then unit goes dark on both LCD and External display... Tried fn F5 combination with no success.. Any suggestions??


I suspect a display driver problem - try safe mode. After powering on, start tapping on the F8 key about once a second. You should end up with a bunch of white text on a black background. Options will include "Safe Mode" and "Last Known Good Configuration......". You could try the latter as sometimes that's enough to get you to a desktop. If not then power off/power on and try safe mode. If this gets you to a desktop then it is likely a driver issue and further work will be needed to to get you fixed up. Please post back with your experiences.

Windows Won't start


Hey,

You can fix this problem by installing windows again from the windows installation cd or from the recovery media that came with the computer.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,

My computer wont start up


First try pressing F2 at start up to see if you can get to setup. Also pressing F12 may get you a boot menu. If cd is already set as first boot you may get a chance to boot from a Windows cd. The idea here is to get to a minimal Windows configuration like setup or safe mode (F8) to see if this is a hardware or operating system fault. Two common issues with eMachines are power supply problems where repetitive reboots can actually fry the motherboard or if the PC has a few years use the CMOS battery. Steve Medley

Try starting in the Safe Mode; you can access a short menu using either F5 or F8 during the first few seconds after power on. That will load very little of Windows and you can troubleshoot from there.
You might first try booting again and recording the last lines of text as this may also be a clue to the problem.
