If your os is Vista try this.Use your vista restore disk.Put it in your cd-dvd player and run it .When it ask you what do you want it to do select start up repair.Repair will run,then your system will reboot.If this doesn't work i would check your lcd inverter or lcd panel.

My laptop won't start... please


Not sure but it sounds like the hard drive is causing the problem. Lap tops are set up so that any problems with them they shut down, and a bad hard drive will shut you down the way you are describing. The only test i know for this is to remove the hard drive and see if you can get the computer to at least boot. If you can with no hard drive then it usually means the drive has failed. Not sure if this will help, but hope it helps.

Satellite M45-S351 locks up won't shut down. First thing, may lap top would not shut down so we had to use the power button, then after some time 2-3 the unit decided not to boot up. we copyed the hard...


I think it is a prob with the mother board.........no need t change RAM or hard drive........they dont cause this type of prob. Ur mother board is not accepting the shutdown command.
Try the following command in command prompt:

shutdown /s /f

My lap top says that my hard drive is going to fail


You should back up your files regularly and be prepared to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive etc. when the hard drive eventually fails.

Lap top wont boot up past the windows screen


This generally indicates that a sector in the hard drive has failed, and the hard drive will need to be replaced. With a bad sector the drive reads to the point of the bad sector and past the bad sector, but can't put the info together, so it tries to boot, but can't. Unfortunately, your only option is replacing the hard drive.
