Wont boot up

When I installed a game on my computer and rebooted it, it would turn on but the blue led power button doesnt turn on and the screen doesnt come on. Took it to get looked at and they ripped me off by saying it was the power supply and threw my old one out. Is it the motherboard??

How do I solve a problem with starting up windows in my hp pavilion g6? Whenever I start windows a blue screen appears and the computer restarts.


Sounds like your hard drive has either failed, come disconnected, or someone performed a full format of the drive which wiped out the partitions or the boot sector of the drive. Worst case you will need to replace drive and purchase reinstall disk from hp. Best case you will only need to purchase reinstall disk from hp. If you do need a new drive, I recommend purchasing it from hp directly, as it will already be prepared with hps proprietary boot configuration files which must be present for hardware to be recognized by system bios.

My toshiba at200 table 10.1 wont turn on


1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, like the toshiba boot up screen or something like that. Or is it completely blank (black color) always.

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). This is important to confirm.

3. Also, when you press power button, do you see the LED lights on laptop blinking or solid green (which ones are in blinking/solid) and do hear any sound ? Or do you feel that your laptop doesnt even try to boot.

4. Can you hear any Beeps when you try to turn on the computer. If yes, what is the sequence of those beeps.

Continued......
If you answers are -
1.
blank
2.

what hardware have you replaced? do you hear a beeping sound? try removing everything (HDD, DVD/CD/FLOPPY/)except the proc,video card and mem on the motherboard and try to boot. check if it will give you bios. if it still the same, do an isolation test. the main reason why its not responding is your computer doesnt complete POST. POST is one of the process the computer do to test all the hardware that is connected on the motherboard, if one fails and POST doesnt complete, you wont see the BIOS startup screen. Theres a lot of possible fault on this concern. since theres a lot of things connected on the motherboard

hi there!

first of all check the power plug, then turn it on as usual and see if there is any sign of activity(Hardddisk LED, CD-ROM LED)

If there is not, the hardware is broken and u should start worrying.

In that case, take it to nyour hardware retaileer or sell it marked 'Broke!'
on ebay


else

first check in BIOS
(press F1 or Del button when booting, before the windows screen)
- if the CD/DVD-drive is set as first boot device, if not so, change it to 1st, 2nd should be the harddisk.
Then insert original CD of the Windows version u are using, now boot from CD and DO NOT INSTALL Windows but quit the Program by repeatedly pressing F3. Now you should be able to access your harddisk as before.

IF that does not work, take out the CD, reboot without it.
Lucky this time?
Any error messages u see, write down and conme back to fixya to let me help u...

C U soon?

Black screen after turn on


That "Blue Screen" is also known as "Blue screen of Death".

The problem is due driver compatibilty or unstablity.

Try to boot your system to "Safe Boot" by pressing F8 during startup.
Select "Last know good Configuration that works"
Check if it can take you to desktop.
Unstalled the wi-fi driver and reboot.

If the above procedure fails, again
Try to boot your system to "Safe Boot" by pressing F8 during startup.
Select "Safe boot"
Check if it can take you to desktop.
Unstalled the wi-fi driver and reboot.

Now create a restore point  and download the lastest version of your WI-Fi driver and installed.

This should work fine.

Otherwise Backup all your important data from your hard drive (mainly opearting system file installed drive usually C:\) and go for a new Installation.

My zen's screen wont turn on


i'm assuming you pushed the reset button at the bottom already. does it seem like it is booting (does the hard drive spin, the head move?) if nothings moves or spins i'm assuming you have a defective logic board. there is a creative zen repair guide that shows you how to do that, the part is on ebay.

Try inserting the Mac OSX installation DVD and while booting hold down the alt button. Then select the DVD to boot from it and try to use repair options and disk utility to check the installatio/harddrive.
