Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

How to avoid formatting your PC ?


Sometimes your Windows crashes or has corrupt system files & will not boot into windows. At this point, you may need to format PC or laptop (assuming you have tried all other options such as going into safe mode etc)

However if you don't have enough time or the CDs needed therefore no need to panic. I'll just tell you something having 80%+ chances to work.
You'll need another good working PC. Remove your affected Hard Disk, put it in another PC or plug it using an USB external casing.
Now, power on the PC. On booting the PC having the correct system will detect System errors etc... & recover,restore system files. If it doesn't correct the errors go to 'my computer/select the HDD/ properties/tools & check your HDD errors!
It'll be more than 80% chance that it works! I have tried it on many PCs & believe me it really helps.
Please send me your vote & feedback if you find it helpful.

Hp promo dx 5150 won't turn on


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Laptop is not able to open windows. mine is HP pavilion dv4000 p/n is EP360 UA#ABA- dv4320us


If the laptop boots up press F10 when F10 is displayed on the lower left of display and ensure that the hard drive is selected for first boot. If Windows still doesn,t boot then put the system restore cd/Windows cd in and boot from that.  If the display has nothing make sure that the brightness is not turned down or connect an external monitor. At this point repost to get more info.
