The answer to your last question is many manufactures have chosen to put a recovery partition on the HD. Many PCs offer the ability to burn a CD from the recovery partition.

The issue with it not booting up could be many things. Could be a corrupt HD, could be a bad HD.
Press F8 while booting and see if you can choose "last known good configuration" or try safe mode.

Without a recovery CD you may run out of options, but if you can obtain a copy of XP and boot with it (not to install) You can choose an option to go into "Recovery Console" There you can run a chkdsk command and that can solve corrupted HD issues. Rebooting after the chkdsk is complete will sometimes let you back into normal windows.

Black screen on startup for macbook bro


It may be a problem with your light behind the screen or the driver's that produce the energy to light it up. Sounds like a hardware problem to me.

Video Problem


That seems to be the monitor running a test. It might do that if it isn't receiving a signal from the computer. Make sure the cable is plugged into the tower and the monitor.

The graphics card could be bad, or the motherboard or power supply. Has it ever worked before? What changes were made? Was there lightning in the area or a power failure?

Turn the computer off and unplug it, and the monitor. Wait a few minutes, then plug everything in and restart. Hopefully it isn't a permanent hardware failure.

A test to narrow down the cause would be to use a different monitor or computer to see where the problem lies.

My acer desktop computer screen is black, the power says it is on but no pic, keeps cutting off, tried to back up and restore, cut off, says problem with windows and it shut off as well, HELP!


  • When the computer will not boot up, it sound like it is booting as the CPU fan is running and the lights are on. It also finds the CD ROM but it won't boot from a CD either.
  • Sometimes when you have a computer black screen on startup and the power switch light will be green and then turns to orange or amber. Everything is running.
  • Everything seems to be running but you can't see anything on the screen, not even a flashing cursor. Your black screen in Windows has occurred before the Windows logo screen:
  • 1- adapter or video card
  • 2-RAM
  • 3-and Black screen on startup with an amber flashing light
  • Not enough power getting to the motherboard.
  • A dead power supply.
  • A bent pin or shorted out USB port causing a problem.

Laptop wont turn on properly


A vital component that windows requires to run is corrupted. To fix it, you need the OS disc

In Windows Vista, there is usually a second partion on the harddrive that you can load by pressing F8 (or F10 depending on your system) and selecting the repair your computer option (depending on your manufacturer, you might need to input a password, after that choose the repair your computer option or solve startup problems

In Windows XP load the disc and open the recovery manager.
