I have a dell thinkpad that asked to update windows the other day. I accepted it, but ever since, my laptop won't turn on at all. It says it can't initialize and goes to a black screen. Any troubleshooting tips?

If you turn the computer on and press the F8 key do you get a menu that starts with Safe Mode? Select Last Known Good Configuration, it should set you back to before you updated Windows.

Video controller code 28


Sometimes windows update install all the controllers by itself. Update your windows at control panel/security and../windows update. If the problem isn't fixed go to dell web page, and search the controllers by model.

I suggest use GomPlayer or VLC player. Accept all the video codecs.

Yes! it could be, is the window 7 a upgrade disc? the reason I ask it will detect the previous version and install, but if the hard drive has been completely formatted it won't install on empty hardware. If that is not the issue go into bios and reset to factory default it might make the difference.

I have ibm Thinkpad R52 notebook computer, when i instealed window 7 after that sound device is not working.


Go to this page:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58931.html
When it loads up click on where it says audio near the top of the page and it will bring you down to the audio driver section.
In that section it shows you that anything more then windows XP and you need to run windows update to get that sound driver installed. Vista drivers will run on Windows 7. Windows 7 was made from the Windows vista source code which is why the drivers will work.
Click on Start and then All Programs, you'll see where it says windows update. Go ahead and click on it and then click on check for updates. It may ask you to enable updates. If it does then click on the button that says Turn on Automatic Updates. Windows will find the driver and it will install it for you.

First 2 of your problems are due to the fact that your laptop enters hibernation (or hybrid sleep in windows 7) and windows cannot restore your last saved state. The 3rd problem indicates you have windows problems (bad/not updated drivers, filesystem corruption, application issues). I would suggest you to reinstall windows.
