Most likely the correct video driver is not installed since you have reformatted your hard drive.

You should Google the model and find out what type of video card is in the computer then find the driver and install it to gain access to higher resolutions. At least assuming you had them prior to your formatting the hard drive.

SOURCE: Monitor not coming on - Packard Bell Easynote R4650

It's a dreadful way to start a day - you press the power button on your computer and nothing happens. Do not fear because all may not be lost! Follow these simple steps to determine why your computer won't turn on.

Note: It is very important to troubleshoot any issue beginning with the most likely and easily testable problem so be sure to follow these steps in order.
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours or more depending on why the computer won't turn on
Here's How:

As silly as it may sound, the number one reason why a computer won't turn on is because it wasn't turned on! Before starting a sometimes time consuming troubleshooting process, make sure you've turned on every power switch and power button associated with your computer:
Power button/switch on the front of the computer's case.
Power button/switch on the front and/or back of the monitor.
Power switch on the power supply on the back of the computer.
Power switch on the power strip or surge protector (if you have one).

Verify that the power supply voltage switch is correctly set. If the input voltage for the power supply does not match the correct setting for your country, your computer may not power on.

Check for loose computer and monitor power cable connections. A loose or unplugged power cable is one of the top reasons why a computer doesn't turn on.

Perform a "lamp test" to verify power is being provided. Your computer isn't going to turn on if it's not getting power so you need to make sure that the power source is working properly.

A damaged power supply could be preventing the computer from being properly powered.

Do a quick test of the power supply by holding your hand behind the power supply fan located at the rear of the case. If the power supply is working, you should feel air from within the case blowing against your hand. If not, you may need to replace the power supply.

Tip: Is the power light on the front of the computer's case on? If you've turned the power switch on but the light is off, this is another good indication that the power supply is the cause of this issue.

Over time, internal components and the cables that connect them can wiggle loose which can often times result in a computer unable to power on. Try reseating the following and then try to power on the computer again:
Reseat the internal cables
Reseat the memory modules
Reseat the video card
Reseat other expansion cards

Reseating the CPU may also be necessary but should only be attempted if the reseating of all other components is not successful. This is due to the fact that this process is a little more involved and can run a small risk of damage to the CPU. This isn't a big concern if you're careful, so don't worry!

Check for causes of electrical shorts in the computer case. This is often the cause of the problem when the computer powers on for a second or two but then powers off completely.

Most monitors have a small light next to the power button that can change between various colors. If the screen is blank, this light is your main source of information about the monitor.

If this light is not on at all, double-check the power switch and connections (Steps 1, 2 and 3) and also make sure the monitor cable is securely plugged in to the video card port on the back of the computer case. If the light is still off, replace the monitor. If it comes back on, try starting your computer again - a loose or unplugged monitor cable may have been the issue all along.

An amber or yellow power light simply means that the monitor is not receiving any information from the computer. In and of itself, this doesn't tell us much.

On the other hand, if the light is amber or yellow, the computer power light is on, and the hard drive is active (making familiar sounds and the hard drive activity light on the computer case is blinking), the computer is probably starting normally but the video card is not sending information to the monitor. Replace the video card.

Beep codes (see Step 11) usually sound when a video card has malfunctioned but this is not always the case.

Is your computer making a beeping sound? Sometimes a computer will turn on just enough to play a series of beeps from the speakers.

These beep codes play in particular sequences and represent a specific problem that your computer is having. Troubleshoot the beep code to figure out what it's saying and then service the computer as necessary.

SOURCE: recovery help needed for packard bell laptop

So you are using two different XP discs with two different activation codes? That may cause problems. Anyway you are probably already formated with NTFS. So it sounds like you are trying to re-install XP? Go in set-up and choose the CD/DVD ROM drive as the first boot device then start up with the XP disc in the drive. Use the disc for the original XP that was on the computer. This may get you to a point where you can re-install.

Sounds like the hard drive ies and you lost your restore partition. You will probably need a new drive and hopefully you already have a restore cd.

As you can see, the screen isn't full, its kinda half, mom pressed something and i don't know how to fix it, please help.


The issue here is the "Format" or "Ratio" of the screen. Currently, it is set to Standard Format or a 4:3 ratio. It may also be set to 480i or 480P scan rate.

You should change it to Wide Screen or 16:9 ratio. Additionally, you will want to display High Definition images by selecting a scan rate of either 720P, 1080i or 1080P - depending on which choices are offered by the TV. Typically the remote will offer a choice of Format. It is possible that the source device (cable TV, DirecTV, Tivo, etc. has a command to cause this too. In any case, the TV, and other source appliances must be set to Wide Screen / 16:9 and 720P or higher to veiw full screen, HD images.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have a dv9008nr HP laptop. Thought I had a virus but when I re-formatted my video resolution went back to 1440x900. I thought the problem was fixed. As I started my widows updates the screen turned off...


Download a nice Linux distro like Ubuntu, and put it on a flash drive or DVD, then boot from that and see if it runs normally. If so your hardware is OK (HPs run Linux just fine).

Be careful with Linux, it's a '"cancer" according to Steve Ballmer. You might not go back to Windows.

How can I format my inspiro 1525 laptop


1. Backup all your documents and files that you like to use after format.
2. Insert your windows bootable cd and enable/turn first booting from cd-rom from BIOS setup (usually when you press del or F2 on computer starting).
3. After restart computer asks to press any key to boot from windows cd.
4. Then you get blue screen with lot of funny text you can read all that if you like or press next then choose format drive c: NTFS and follow instructions.
5. After installation you get nice clean desktop without these annoying icons. First thing you may like to do is install all missing drivers. If you dont have original drivers cd then you can download them from dell support site you may backup network drivers to usb memorystick before format if you dont have original drivers cd.

6. Have fun :)

Incorrect format, reformat player


i've had that same problem, i called the tech number and they emailed me some program to download. It fixes the problem but the problem doesn't go away. It still happens and i have to hook up the USB and use the program to fix it. Which can be a pain in the ass, all in all, this product is not worth it. I shouldn't have to "repair" something every time i want to use it. And it turns out mp3 players only have a 15 day return policy at Walmart. Which would have been nice to know since on day 16 it crapped the bed. *sigh* lesson learned.
