I cant open my computer.


You're going to need to be a bit more specific than that. There are too many reasons a computer won't boot properly and it is the way it won't boot that tells people what the problem is.

If you'd computer doesn't turn on at all even if u push the power button, no sound no video no nothing, Kaput, then reassure your power is properly plugged in. Take the power cord and shove it in. Grrrrrrrr it takes a bit of force. If that doesn't work , check the power supply. Are the volts correct? In usa, that volt meter at the back should read 110 volts. If u live anywhere else, its 220 volts. If that's correct then check if the power switch is one in the power supply. Is the power cables inside connecting to the motherboard good? Is the power supply good? If everything a fine, u probably have a dead motherboard.

Miracles happen and u see something, but no video pops open. U either have a bad monitor or a bad graphics card. The vga/dvi/HDMI cables may jot be properly inserted. Is the monitor even on powered correctly?

Hurray u got it to boot but then u get blue screen. Or u get the the windows icon, but then restarts. It must be past the motherboard screen like dell Asus gigabyte etc, try reinstalling windows. If it doesn't work, u probs y have a dead hard drive.

After trying to jumpstart or reset my bios on my Toshiba L455D... now when I turn it on there is only a blank screen but it still turns on. ANY suggestions are very very welcome. Thank you so much


If it sounds like it booted up all the way except the screen is blank try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My toshiba tablet won't let me go past the welcome screen


If this is under warranty take it back. If it isn't power the unit on with just the battery powering the unit. When you see the Windows splash screen drop the battery out after the screen goes black put the battery back in and press the power button. This should bring up the on screen menu telling you it failed to start or shut down correctly. Select, Boot in Safe Mode and see if the system will power on. If that fails you need to do a system restore. To access system restore options power the unit on and press and hold the F10 key, this will bring up the restore Windows options. From that menu select to restore your operating system. If that fails you will have to do a complete restore to factory default settings. If that fails you will have to replace the hard drive.

Windows will not load stuck on welcom screen any help with this? Please and thank you


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
If you are having this kind of problem, follow the steps below:
1)Turn off the computer completely.
2)Unplug the charger from the laptop and remove the battery.
3)Press and hold down the power button for 5-10secs. (this will drain the remaining static charges inside the computer)
4)put in back the battery and plug the charger back.
5)Try now to turn on the computer and see if you will be able to pass the Windows Welcome screen.
6)If still no go, turn off the computer again.
7)Try to boot into safemode. (Turn on computer and once you press the power button, keep on tapping on F8.. You should see a screen that has Windows Advanced Boot Options. It has different options like safemode, safemode with networking, etc.)
8)Using the arrow keys, select Safemode. You should be able to login into Windows in Safemode. You might notice that the resolution is different. Don't panic, that's normal.
9)Once you are in safemode, access the System Configuration Utility tool. Open the link to know how to access it. http://vlaurie.com/computers2/Articles/msconfig.htm
10)Once you have accessed msconfig, click on the startup tab>then click on Disable all>click on apply.
11)Click on the Services tab>put a check on the box that says, Hide Microsoft services>Click disable all>click on apply and OK.
12)it will now prompt you with a restart. Restart the computer. and it will now boot back to normal mode.
13)You should be able now to access Windows. If it is successful, there are just some startup items or services that are having conflicts while Windows is trying to load up.
If you are not able to access safemode either, pretty much you have a bad hard drive or Windows could be corrupted. Try first reinstalling Windows on you computer.
Hope this could be a big help.

My Acer P196hqv moniter is always offset by about 50mm when I start my computer, and I have to use the moniter controls to correct it. Very frustrating!


this is because the boot up screen and the welcome screen comprises of many differences they differ in resolution ,colour depth etc so if once the moniter is set for welcome screen it may be irregular for boot window

My Dell optiplex 170L keeps turining off and then


Possible that it's caused by a faulty hardware or a computer virus on your computer. For us to isolate the issue we must start troubleshooting with the hardware

1. Remove all the connection at the back of your computer
2. Power cycle your computer tower by pressing the power button for 15 seconds
3. Plug the power cord back in and monitor cable at the back of your computer tower (if it turned on, meaning that one of the device plugged at the back of your computer is the one's causing the problem, for you to pin point the problem, try plugging it one-by-one and turn on the computer each time you plug a device)
4. If it keeps on doing that, open up your computer tower (be careful to unplug the power cord and power cycle it to avoid static electricity)
5. Reseat the video card, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
6. Reseat the IDE/Sata cable of your hard drive and try to make sure it's properly plugged in, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
7. Reseat the memory, turn on the computer and test it again if the same thing
8. If you have 2 memory chip inserted in your computer tower memory slot, remove the other one and turn on the computer, do the same thing to other memory and each slot
9. If all else fails, restart the computer and keep on pressing F8 before the window welcome screen comes up - to go to advanced boot options
10. Boot to Safemode
11. If you are able to boot to Safemode
12. Login as administrator
13. Click start
14. run
15. type msconfig then press enter
16. click on startup tab and click on disable all button at the bottom part
17. Restart the computer and let it start normally
18. if the same thing happen, boot to safemode again
19. Login to administrator again
20. Right click my computer
21. Click on properties
22. Click on Advanced Tab
23. Click on settings button under Startup and Failure
24. Uncheck the Automatically restart under System failure
25. Restart the computer in normal mode
26. Tell us if you see any blue screen error, if so, post the error here

if all else fail, your operating system needed to be reinstalled and you should have the cd for the operating system if it's XP or Vista or Windows 7.

When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen


Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer

When i start my computer it doesn't open windows, well it basically does all the booting up and up until it has to say "welcome" it then presents a black screen with the message: input signal out of range....


The video driver isn't set up correctly for the computer. You need to boot into safe mode - after powering on the computer, press the F8 key. You will be shown a menu. Choose Safe Mode with networking. The computer will boot using a very basic video driver. Right click on the screen and select properties. Click on the advance tab. Click on Driver => Advanced => Update driver. Once the driver has been updated. Go back to the drivers tab and click on mode. Select one of the modes. Close everything and restart your conmputer normally.
