Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls type "EXIT" less the quotes then ENTER. Ths is assuming that what you have described is a DOS Shell running inside WinME. If on the otherhand the computer has booted to DOS (although most unlikely), pls type "WIN" less the quotes then ENTER

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Rlaptop X551M got new build update of wins 10. it restarted goes to blu screen :( saying unable to start then repeats


Probably windows picked the wrong drivers, if it was microsofts download. Try to get to safe mode and type restore point in the search box. Select a date prior to the update. If it was a windows update there will be a restore point set.

No Power in Monitor


If you are a tech. Check the voltages going to the Logic Board, if one is missing (12 or 5v. Then that is most likely due a an IC failure on the power supply board. IC 901 Don't quote me on this, but I know it is less than $10. Sorry, I only have 1 left, the last one I did was in Aug2006 so memory is fuzzy. Kegtapper
