Re: replaced the screen and now it will not boot up
Well it startup in safe mode? You can get there by pressing F8 repeatedly just when Windows tries to boot. Or hold down the CTRL key sometimes works too. Then you can go into the Device Manager and disable the device that has a problem. Then reboot.

Your operating system is corrupted and will not boot up because there is file missing or corrupted. I suggest to run repair for your operating system. Depending on your operating system, just put the operating system CD install in the CDROM drive and run the repair mode. For Windows & and Windows Vista, repair mode is in the bottom left of the first screen when it loads the installer.
Put the Windows CD disk into the CD-drive.
Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and immediately look for a message like "press F12 to change boot order", or something like that. Tell the computer to first try to boot from the CD-drive. When it boots, the installation process will start.
Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
With this kind of problem, you must put in the Windows software disk and boot. Then select repair Windows from the list. This option will attempt to correct the problem. If you do not have the disc, boot into the repair / diagnostic mode from the boot screen. See if there is an option to create boot disks.
Has this just recently started happening? if so you could try a system restore to your latest stable operating point.. vista is sometimes known to crash after power settings are changed... you could also try reverting your power settings to their defaults( start / control panel / power )if this dose not work it sounds very much like a hardware problem. firstly i would take your power cord to a local repairer to have it tested to make sure it is putting out the correct voltage and mA.. if your transformer is ok you need to test if your problem is with your hardware or software on the pc.. I would install vista on a separate partition and see if you have the same problem. if your new install of vista works fine when plugged in you should back up your needed files format your hard drive and do a complete new install of vista. but if your new install of vista (on the separate partition)crashes in the same way your trusty old laptop will need repair or ebaying
sounds like a conflict problem, if new hardware installed, try removing it. if new software installed, boot in safe mode (press F8 while booting, and choose safe mode). or maybe a corrupted registry file, you will need to repair it or reinstall system.
It is a clear case of memory dumping. when ur computer is booting up keep pressing F8 and you will get option to start the windows in safe mode. start the window in safe mode and check if any drivers are melfunctioning and if possible just change the slot of your RAM. It works most of the time, atleast worked for my and a few of my friend's computer and try to keep the CPU from humid atmosphere.
put os in cd drive and boot up to install new copy .if system says ** os found you k**w you have hd problem you can try to fix or reinstall new copy anyway.remove hd and re seat it first.check mem .remove ,check connections and replace.go into bios and select default.save and exit.
see how you get on .
sounds like missing or conflicting software but try all the above first.If it is missing or conflicting software pretty easy to fix.let me k**w
you may need to boot from install cd, and then configure that drive with F2 prompt at log in screen. Of course, with IBM, there's always a chance of having some arcane approach, but you might get lucky.
