Hi-Grade laptop tries to boot but fails and retries then doesnt do anything.

Windows Vista Basic, Intel Celeron M Inside. basically i press the power button, the power, battery, and charging lights turn green (accept the charging light which is orange.) i hear the fans booting up, but no images are being processed to my screen its all black. like no sort of image not a black screen just as if it was turned off. then the power light goes off for around 2-3 seconds and then it comes back on (fully lit to green, just as it did when i started it up) then repeats this process for around 3 minutes until it just stopes and the lights stay on (green,green,orange). help? :/

SOURCE: Dell Latitude C510/610 wont turn on

I have more of a suspicion of the CPU fan than the hard drive, right now. If a hard drive goes bad, the system will wake up, go through it's POST (Power On Self Test), and then tell you there's an issue with the hard drive. If the CPU fan goes bad, the system turns on, sees an RPM of 0 on the fan, then turns back off. That hypothesis also fits in with the slowness you were seeing. If a CPU starts to overheat (because the fan isn't running well), it will start to throttle the clock speed down in an attempt to produce less heat.
Unfortunately, it sounds like your laptop may be in need of a professional repair facility.

SOURCE: Fails to boot

You might try a Hirens Boot CD, un-zip the files, create a bootable cd from the .ISO file and boot your troubled system, select virus scan on boot.

SOURCE: hp pavillion dv9000 won't boot. tries to start,

There is a Limited Enhancement Program that includes this model. If you are in the US call 1-800-474-6836. If you are outside US check the website and search for the Limited warranty enhancement Program.
This is normally a video chipset issue that is embedded in your MB. If your notebook is part of the program, hp will shoulder the repair cost for the MB replacement.

Please vote, Thanks!

SOURCE: My eee pc 4G surf won't turn on. It started

Most likely, either the power jack inside the machine (jack itself or solder joints) or the plug on the power cord was damaged; obviously the plug is only a few dollars to replace, the jack also only a few dollars, but much more labor intensive. My experience tells me it's probably the power jack. If you have any way to externally charge your battery and, using it, find the machine operational, that pins it down pretty well. When the external supply is used, the internal battery is supposed to be switched out of the load circuit and into charging mode.

Im using compaq laptop, installed with Vista Basic. when i turn it on it loads, but after that it remains blank, I am certain that it is not LCD problem. What can I do?

If you just recently installed Windows Vista Basic and all you get is a black screen with a white cursor that is blinking, then the operating system did not install properly.
Go ahead and reinstall the operating system using a Windows Vista Basic CD and let the installation go through all the way.
If the problem persists, I would recommend finding a boot CD that has mini XP and run check disk.
If you have more than 4KB in bad sectors, then your hard drive is failing and isn't able to write the Files properly to the hard drive from the Windows Vista Basic CD.
Also, check the memory using a tool called Memtest. If you have bad memory, that would also be the reason why an installation can't be done properly.

Hope this was helpful.

I deleted too much stuff off my 1g emachine desktop and now it wont even start windows says its missing the boot manager. how can i fix it without a backup disk

Hi ,
Unfortunaly , you can't . You need the install disc . You can retreive existing data by extracting the hdd from your desktop and connect it to a healthy computer . Format the HDD afterwards , put it back into the desktop and launch install disc .

JVC Digital Still Function 32X

I'd try using a different cable to connect to the PC. The one you are using could be faulty. It does happen sometimes.
