If you haven't fixed this problem yet; try to start the system in Safe Mode by tapping on F8 when it's booting up. When asked to start in safe mode or normal, select Safe Mode.

Your graphics are going to be bad when you do that, but if that works let me know. then you'll have to go and change some settings

Power Button wont do anything


First check your num lock key on key bord if it is on off when you press num lick key then your dispaly is working fine means you need to change screen resolution.
For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.then go to display property and change screen resolution to 1024*768 or 800 *600.
Also when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or 'del" key to enter in bios then load optimal defaults also check your harddisk is detected .Disable your satat option in bios .then save settings then check.
I f you not able to enter in bios then Refix your ram.If still face problem you need to reset bios .
For that you have to open laptop cover in back then pull cmos cell from mother bord for 5 minutes then refix it then check.

Cannot start up my laptop since in done an update


Try booting into "Last known good configuration" it is on the same screen as Safe Mode, if that does not work, you can try to run CHKDSK /r from the windows install CD, just choose "Repair" in the option, if this does not work I suggest removing that hard drive and slaving it into another computer to get your data off and then reload Windows onto it. It is missing a .dll
