You have a System file problem
Go to C:\ right click go to properties tools "error check" click to open then tick little box to fix errors and reboot .
Windows on reboot will scan disk and fix any errors.
If this does not fix it reinstall windows in "Repair Mode"
Boot from Win CD after drivers etc are loaded will ask you what you want to do Press the R key to Install in repair mode. you will not lose any files doing so

My Dell Latitude D820 has many problems.... The biggest one is that I came home from work to turn it on, and the screen is black... When it turns on, it is completely white. I am so upset! I just got this...

Screen issue:
It sounds like either the lcd screen or video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the external monitor displays ok that proves your video card is ok and your lcd screen is the problem. If the external monitor displays the black or white screen like your lcd screen then your video card inside the computer is bad. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Laptop hot:

Some laptops and the ac adapter get very hot. If the laptop is not shutting down, then it is not overheating, so don't worry about it. You can buy a laptop cooling pad that has fans on it and it plugs into one of the usb ports on the laptop. The laptop sits on it to keep cooler.

Your battery is probably dead so that is why you can only power it up using the ac adapter power cord. Once the power cord is removed, the laptop will turn off. Batteries only have a useful life, and after that, they have to be replaced.

My computer monitor just has a window open that says ( D-SUB out of range 53.6khz/85hz) how can I fix this ?

1. Turn off your computer (you can do this by holding down the power button).
2. Making sure the monitor cable is plugged into the computer, turn the computer back on.
3. If there is something other than the error message on screen, begin tapping the F8 key on the keyboard as soon as the computer turns on. 3b. If nothing (other than the error) is shown on the screen after restarting, you must obtain another monitor and follow these steps from the beginning on that screen.
4. After less than a minute, you should get a menu like this

5. Select "Safe Mode" 7. Once at the Windows desktop, right click on the background, and select properties.

8. Select the "Settings" tab, and move the resolution slider all the way to the left.

9. Restart normally, and once in regular Windows, repeat steps 7 and 8, selecting the resolution of your choice.

Kindly try to disconnect the monitor from the computer and check it by connecting to power source only to see if it runs the self test, If it shows you the No input signal on the screen that means the monitor is working fine.

Try connect your monitor to some other box and try if it works the same way or as a normal pc boot. If it works well with other box, the issue is with the BIOS. Get the BIOS flashed with the latest version of flash program for the Bios chipset which your board is using. If the monitor shows the same symptom on a different box too.. you may need to get your monitor repaired. Good Luck

When you start up your computer - on most computers if you press the delete button you will enter the bios - from there find the screen that will put your system to sleep when you power down your computer - this will power down your monitor as well.

plz resit the ram,if problem is not solved then try by removing the cable from the monitor to cpu and check is there is any message or white screen in the monitor,if you get any thing then your monitor is ok,otherwise your monitor needs repairing.
If you get message in the monitor or the color changes then your motherboard display adapter needs to be repaired

Hello, find the BIOS Beep Codes at and try to find your problem. It is not a software or Monitor problem. It could be RAM or Video Card failure
