System restore fails

My son cracked his notebook LCD display. We ordered a replacement LCD and the install was fairly straight forward. When we rebooted, the display is working with a clean crisp display, but now it will not boot up. Fails sending us to the windows repair. We tried doing a windows repair and even a system restore several times, but it fails. Any ideas? I miss the days when you paid for an operating system and they actually give you a CD to do a complete reinstall if needed. This is ridiculous. I hate Microsoft any more! Thanks for any help!

Internally cracked LCD display


If the screen is cracked, it will branch out like a spider's web with black margins showing. The whole LCD display will need to be replaced, go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to screen and check price listings.

My 5 year old Dell Inspiron 710m screen is cracked. My son hit it with a remote and it has black fuzzy stuff throughout it that is spreading. What can I do?


So sorry about the cracked screen. But the solution to cracked screens is replacement.
But pending the time it can be replaced, if you have a desktop monitor, you can connect it to it.
If not, a flat screen TV could do the job of display, using the monitor display cable.

Hope that helped?
Success.

My girl stepped on the notebook when it is running, then it fails to power up, what can I do now?


It is likely the lcd display has cracked or dislocated. Try connecting a normal vga monitor to the monitor port and select the external monitor from the keyboard using the F4 key or whatever function key has the display symbol.

If the LCD is the problem you should be able to run from the external display.

It is then a matter of replacing the lcd display or continuing to use the external display. A new lcd will set you back about $200 to replace.

How do we restore the system. We do not have a CD.


If you still have the recovery partition in place then it is quite straight forward.Press ALT+F10 at the post screen. The post screen is the first screen you see when you turn your notebook on, i.e the screen that says "Acer". Once you press the right key combination it will boot to the recovery partition & allow you to start the process. If nothing happens, you need to order the recovery cd.

Operating system not found


Ouch, this is not what you like to see.

This is often caused by two things:
  1. A virus
  2. A bad disk drive
Since you cannot get into the computer your left with checking the disk drive. Disk drive manufactures have diagnostic programs you can download. On another computer, download Seagate disk tools from their web site. Burn a CD and boot your laptop with it. Run diagnostics.

If it says you don't have a Seagate disk, it will tell you the brand. Go to that brands web site, repeat above.

If you have a bad disk, then you need to replace it. On laptops it is fairly straight forward but you also need to restore your system. If you don't have restore disks, you'll have to buy them from the laptop manufacture.

this is an extremely common LCD failure. Unfortunately, due to the design of laptop LCD panels, the best solution would be to replace the entire panel (usually they run between $70 - $130 on ebay depending on size, aspect ratio, etc) Its a fairly straight-forward job, but if you are not comfortable with electronics disassembly take it to a reputable repair shop to have the work done (DO NOT pay more than $50 for the labor for this repair)

My son crack the LCD glass on his 204T SyncMaster


The glass of the panel is glued or welded to the LCD wafer below, it cannot be replaced separately. Since the panel is the most expensive part of an LCD monitor, its probably the cheapest option to just get a new monitor - spare part ordering and extensive manual work required for the change simply outweighs the remaining value of the monitor.

Your best option is buy a junk one off ebay and replace LCD. LCD replacement is very straight forward, just remove the screws, pry the case apart and the rest will be easy. Use the one you buy off ebay and practice getting it apart.

Acer Laptop TM240 , display has green tinge....


This is one of two things.

The first is that the color settings in the advanced section of your display properties has been altered.

The second and unfortunately the more likely is that your lcd screens back light or cfl (compact fluorescent lamp) has began to fail, usually due to age.

If this is the case you can either replace the entire lcd panel or just the cfl. Changing the lcd panel is fairly straight forward, but changing the cfl while it is the cheaper option it is a much more technical job to complete.
