Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an hp dm3-1130us laptop with Win 7. I haven't had problems with it until today. I have it set to sleep when I close the screen which I did, but when I opened it and it turned back on it only showed a black screen. I restarted and now it won't go past the Windows logo boot screen. It just restarts again after several seconds to the two option boot screen "start windows normally" or use windows repair. Windows repair only shows a mouse and the background screen for repair with no words. I also can't get to the f8 screen, as my computer requires the "Fn" key in conjunction with f keys, and it doesn't seem to be responding. I also don't have a boot disk or a cdrom drive. Did I just lose every one of my final projects for class? Several are due the day after tomorrow!

See chapter 5, Also read the part about setting or disabling the processor sleep mode, Disable it. IF it boots normally
Go to Start. In the search box type "Device Manager" (without the quotes) - and then press Enter; this will open up the Device Manager. Double click on 'Universal Serial Bus controllers.' Now you will see a list of 'USB Root Hub'. Right-click the top one of these and select 'Properties'. Click on the Power Management tab, un-tick where it says 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' and click 'OK'. Now repeat this action on the other 'USB Root Hub' items in the list. when they are all done you can close the Device Manager, and your USB mouse and keyboard will now be able to re-awake your computer

SOURCE: Laptop screen comes on after several startups

Hi there.
The laptop is suffering from major issues with the bios.
Seeing as the laptop is only 6 months old i would recommend that you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty, providing the fault is not user fault (by what you explain its hardware) they will fix the issue or replace the laptop at no cost to yourself. Standard warranty is 12 months.
I don't want to tell you to start messing about with it as doing so will void the warranty.
While you are still able to use it back up all of your data before you send it in.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

SOURCE: Set my Toshiba Satellite Laptop PSA60U-01W015 to it Factory Sett?

some of these systems have the factory restore option on post boot before the OS kicks in. From a cold boot look for the hit DEL or Fx key and do that - you may have to boot a few times to catch it, and possibly hold the defined key down in anticipation of the option to appear on what looks like a DOS screen. You may need the recovery discs that came wit the system if the image is not in a hidden partition of your drive. Good luck.

SOURCE: Toggle Between Laptop and Monitor

Fn + F5 toggles the display output, the trick here to wait each time you hit this combination because it goes through several options. Hit it once and it may want to go to just the external, then both the laptop screen and the external. etc. Now Fn + F6 turns the backlight bulb off on the internal monitor to save energy. Now I am giving up the link to your service manual, it is in PDF format so you can make a copy for yourself and keep on the laptop, print it or save it to a flash so you can reference it later. I believe if you take the keyboard off and disconnect the video lead on the left side where the display plugs into the motherboard, then when you power the laptop back up it will default to the external cord and you can use the laptop without any switching. That is what I am doing with an Aspire 5920 that I am rebuilding. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
Just copy and paste the link below to you internet address bar and hit enter.

I cant enter sleep mode on my acer aspire one zg5. How do i fix?


Your settings in power mode have changed. Open up display and go to the screen saver tab (win 7) you will see the power savings option at the bottom. Go into that and change what the buttons do. You will have 3 situations to change. What happens when i close the lid, power button and sleep mode. Chances are you gave everything set to do nothing

My monitor is black stand by mode is locked can't see to change the resolution


By default, Windows 7 is configured to go in sleep mode whenever you close the lid on your laptop. While this is generally preferred by most users to preserve the laptop's battery life, it might be useful to disable this process. Many laptops provide the ability to connect an external display. In this case, closing the lid would also prevent any signal going to the external display. If you would like to stop Windows from shutting off your monitor when you close the lid, access the Windows Power Options component and disable this feature.
So try this, t

I just bought a new Inspiron laptop, as well as a Kensington USB docking station and a Dell WM311 wireless mouse. I can't get the mouse to work at all, and can't get the docking station to work properly...


Closing the lid of most laptops sends a signal to put the machine in hibernate or sleep mode. You can either leave the lid open or change the power savings settings. In Win 7, this is in the Control Panel but can also be reached from the advanced power savings settings from the Screen Saver. Click on the desktop (anywhere without an icon or running program) and select Personalize. Click on the Screen Saver and then Change Power Settings. Then Change Plan Settings (look for the line Advanced Plan Settings and the section marked Power Button and Lid).

I don't know enough to help you with the mouse problem. I'd check the batteries for the mouse first. Then ask Dell.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Black screen


If the screen is breaking up into multiple screens, the video resolution isn't set correctly. Change the video properties back to the native resolution.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen. Click on Properties at the bottom. Now click on the Settings tab.
The Screen Resolution slider should be all the way to the right, close to -> More.
The Colors should be set to the highest setting.

When you close the lid, you may have your laptop set to Sleep Mode, check that. You may also have your screen saver set to Blank, and no screen saver has been chosen.

(1.Screen Saver: Right-click on empty area of desktop>Properties>Screen Saver.

2.Sleep Mode: Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>Power Buttons>When I press the sleep button on my computer>Then choose what you want it to do)

If none of this helps, I suggest you have a problem that HP needs to repair. Since you bought this dv9700t last July, would I be correct in assuming it's still under warranty?

Laptop HP Compaq nx9420 Screen goes Blank


From the Symptom you described, it seems like the thin video cable's connector is loose and is barely connected to the video adapter on the motherboard. You won't be able to tell until you remove the Keyboard and/or the Palmrest to check it. Also, there is a slim possibility that the Laptop has knocked something loose and is going into sleep mode. Normally, a Laptop user can configure it to go into Sleep mode or 'Hibernate'. These settings can be found in the Control Panel under 'Power Settings'. http://www.Computer-Repair-Today.com
