When I try to boot up windows Vista I get black screen


Looks like its an infection to me.
When you get to the black screen and you are able to move the mouse, try this:
Press Ctr+Alt+Del, a message will pop up.
Select Task Manager
A Task Manager window appears.
Click on File and choose New task (run)
Type: explorer.exe
Press the enter key.
You should be able to see your desktop again.

Once there, use a combination of antivirus, spyware, troyan horses solution of your preference to get rid of it.

2) if you reinstall windows xp but display no any hard disk appear that means the HD damaged, you need replace a new HD then do again
3) update some devices driver maybe needed, check from control panel--system--device manager, any triangle yellow mark, you can search from website acording the device model name, download and update them.

Cant boot


In your bios you should be able to change your settings for the hdd. Make sure everything in bios matches your hdd & then save changes & reboot. Hopefully that will allow you to enter windows.

I have a Toshiba A105 Laptop, Screen goes blank after windows....


Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.

Screen Wiggles, CPU Shuts Self Off, Powers Up Very Slowly


Hmm... Any errors on the screen?

Could be a power supply. Fluctuations in that can cause power drops, which would be visible in the video card, and if severe enough, cause the PC to shut off. There are 4 screws and one 1 wire holding those in. It would take about 10 minutes to replace and probably cost you $40-$50 in parts.

To have Geeks do it: Probably $100.

boot in safe mode and log on to ur system with administrator account. Might be ur user profile is corrupted. Locate and delete the profile after taking backup of your Documents and Desktop. Restart the sytem and logon with the same user name and password and it will create a new profile again.
