I am getting a blue scree error on my IBM Thinkpad R51 that says unmountable_Boot_Volume. It will not let me run on save mode...it brings me back to the blue scree error message. I have windows xp


Unmountable boot volume = The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.
To fix that do the following:
1.Put the CD first in the boot order and boot from the XP install disk.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.Select your partition - it should be C
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER. 
6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer. 
This takes a bit longer, but the system should boot back into Windows.

When I start my Inspiron 9300 the Dell symbol appears andI get a dark scree with a short line near the top left of the screen. Help I tried removing the battery and restarting.


This is the dos screen before start up. Normally your motherboard and cpu go through a quick self test and then your hard drive and os start up. What is happening with yours is it is not passing its self test. What you should do is remove and re-seat the memory cards and hard drive in your computer and then try and start it up. If this does not work it means either *********** board or your cpu have failed.

Screen turns off


Please get the RAM checked for the system, as the multicolor lines normally appear when the RAM goes faulty and starts heating up faster than normal.

It also affects the RAM being able to pull the data from the system.

I sometimes get a blank screen while i'm using the computer or when i'm watching a dvd? why is the problem?


you may have screen saver active with no background selected, so when it goes to screen saver it only show blank scree. next time screen goes blank touch a key, if screen comes back, it is your screen saver, go to control panel find personalize and go to screen saver, make changes.

My hp pavilion tx1000 laptop display got off( not displaying any thing


Two possibilities, your backlight is loose and needs checking or even replacement, or the cable connecting your screen is loose or mulfunctional. The first case if the most likely and common case. Considering how narrowly your screen connects with the rest of the computer and how on many occassions people 'just looove' to swing that screen around, it comes as no surprise that after a while it would start acting up. If you're into dismantling and reassembling computers, well, try and access the cables connecting your scree, check them and make sure they are okay, next, check your backlight and all its connections just to make sure everything is seated okay [all the above will require that you open a few things here and there] Good luck

Sounds like you may have a bug, you could try re-ionstalling everything fresh, it may need a driver update. Check the funtcion keys. Sometimes you can turn up the screen contrast by holding the function key and hiiting the function key that looks like a white and black sun, Black is for darkewer, white is for brighter.

Also, ost laptops when on battery power, will auto dim to save battery power.
