Check all your connections on the back of the computer and monitor. Usually this is due to a VGA cable being loose or a monitor going out (bad solder)
please post further news here.

@i bought in 2007 the e macines windows vista home premium, and i get an error code that claims i have a registry error, how can i fix this

You didn't give us much information, but I would start the computer in safe mode, if possible (hit F8 when the computer is starting up--keep tapping on it until you get the screen that lets you choose safe mode.)
Once the computer is running, do a system restore back a few days or so to when it was running OK.
Other suggestion, rather than safe mode on startup--choose "repair my computer."

EMACHINE MODEL el1200 When logging on Password gets user profile cannot be loaded


You can resolve the issue by restoring the computer to a previous date, to do so,

restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode" from the Advance boot menu. Once you are on the computer Desktop, click Start menu> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Restore and select a previous date.

Once restore is completed, restart the computer, it shold take care of the issue.

I have a netbook. the product name is aspire one and the manifacturer os Acer. when i turn the laptop on it turns on but then it stays in a black screen. what do i do? im working on a paper that i have to...

Keep tapping F8 once u press teh power button to turn on your computer.
No select safemode with networking.
Once you get the desktop, save your paper which u were working on to a flash drive or to your email.
Since you didnt specify the OS, i wont be able to give u a details info on doing system restore.
Anyways the next step is system restore to a date on which the computer was working fine.
If that doesnt help, try tapping Alt+F10 instead of the F8 key to start system recovery to reset the computer back to the factory settings, however u will lose all your datas which u put in.

If u can tell me the OS, i can tell u how to start system restore.

Keep me posted on the status of the issue.

The Gigabyte liquid cooling system's pump in my 3-year old pc from ABS is starting to make noises, there's no coolant flowing through the hoses, and the radiator fan on the outside of the chassis isn't...

without the CORRECT fluid, or an additive for the lubrication of the pump in "UV Additive" water- Not From TAP or Sink- you will wear-out the pump FAST. the fan isn't spinning because it was "Most Likely" never cleaned properly- using a can of 'compressed air' and blown off lightly from the FRONT of the fan to keep from getting any dust, fuzz, hair or webbing in between the fan blade center hub and the inner electonics/bearings. You MUST read ALL paperwork that comes with "High-End PC Modification equip. before use. You also MUST do exactly as the instructions state- Flush & Clean fluids throughout Entire system- hoses, pump, reservoir, and radiator- at least once a year. I have 3 water-cooled systems and the oldest one is from '05 and it doesn't make a bit of noise- I have a very quiet 120mm fan connected to the radiator, and the other two are 80mm fans and are 3 and 2-1/2 yrs. old. A tablespoon of "WaterWetter" (Automotive- high performance racing applications) to the average system will do the trick. Try this with your 'Noisy' pump now, but add about a 1/4 cup to the FILTERED WATER and run it for a few days. Also, the Scythe fan is THE MOST QUIET, but a few $'s more- worth it all of the way, too. Lasts as long as you keep up on cleaning and reg. maint. of your PC. e-mail me anytime, as I can help you with anything having to do with advice of all areas in PC structure, modding, components, building, sftwr, etc....

Laptop keeps restarting

  1. See if you can start in Safe Mode (hit F8 before Windows loads - best way is to keep tapping F8 after you power it on. You should get a menu with "start in Safe Mode" as an option.
  2. Once booted in safe mode go to Control Panel, System, Advanced, ;Startup and recovery'.
  3. Click the Settings button and remove the tick from the "Automatically Restart" box.
  4. Click all the OK's to get back to Control Panel.
  5. Reboot as normal and the system should display an error code. Post that error code here and we can have a look at it.

Computer keeps restarting itself

If you are running XP, try starting in the Safe Mode. To access this, at AC power on, start tapping the F8 key; this should bring up a short text menu that gives you the Safe Mode option. If F8 doesn't work, try F5.
If you can get your desktop, open the Start menu, then All programs, then Accessories, then System Tools, then System restore.
If you have had your Restore feature turned on (it is by default) you chouls be offered the chance to restore your system to an earlier date. These will be shown on a calendar in bold if there are earlier backups available 
Choose a date a couple of days before your fuse blew. This restore routine does not lose any work of yours, but essentially checks and replaces corrupt system files and your settings before the roof fell in.

Computer keeps crashing on startup

I am not sure what OS you have. But what I would do is download a registry repair program on your other computer. Then force your problem computer to go into safe mode. Once in there download the registry repair program and run it at least 2 times. From the problems you are talking about sounds like a serious windows registry problem. Best way to force into safe mode is either hit F8 or F2 as soon as the bios screen comes up. When in there download your registry repair. Once you have it up and running. Run defrag hard drive and also use the scandisk feature to make sure there are no errors. This should get you up and running again. If not contact me and i will further instruct you.
