I have had this myselfe on a dell laptop

It is the screen inverter or the screen tube

The screen uses very high voltage to light a very small but powerfull little flourescent tube
it is either the inverter that powers the tube or the tube itself

When my one failed i had a spare computer monitor at the time and managed to hook it up with no problem, backed up my files, and ordered a new inverter of ebay for about £30 unfortunatly it was not the inverter but the tube so i had to buy a new screen around £70 -£100 changing it was a bit fiddly but no big deal , hope that helps

or you could simply use a monitor if you can

Just before it tries to start windows, go to safe mode, press F8 and select safe mode, you may need an external keyboard. That will enable you to restore the faulty/damaged files.

My asus notebook PC will not do anything but load up to asus logo screen and the cursor! What do I do??


It's likely that the disk-drive has failed, and Windows cannot be read from the disk-drive to "boot" the computer.
Take the computer (and power-adapter, if it is a laptop) to a qualified computer-repair place.

I hope that you have been making good "backup" file-sets.

Hello there... Thank you for listening. Power turn on and the asus logo freeze on the monitor. No access to bios at all. I can not boot from cd any hard drive. Please help me


Try pressing control (ctrl) alt & delete keys on your keyboard when you get the screen that shows asus logo. Press all three keys at the same time. Do it two or three times fast in a row and tell me if it makes your computer turn off and restart again? You can answer my question by going to the problem you posted on fixya and click on the comment or reply link in blue.

if you can control the netbook by hitting those three keys then its possible to put the pc in safe mode with keyboard commands. If your using win xp - press and hold F8 or f2 right when you start up your computer. Sometimes you have to try this two or three times in a row to get it to respond on go into bios. On win xp - it takes three failed attempts in a row to automatically go to safe mode on a computer. if you pause inbetween start ups, it wont count them as together.

Some computers need the delete key pressed during start up to go into the bios system.

If your computer is still within warranty, you have an option to request for a recovery cd from Asus which you can use to reinstall your OS. The only thing is, if you use the cd it will wipe out everything on your computer as it will do a clean installation of your OS. Just make sure you have a back up of your files before you use the recovery cd

When you turn the computer on, do you see the HP logo?

If you don't, keep the computer on and try holding the computer screen under an overhead light at an angle. If you see a faint image of anything on your monitor, then the lights in your screen went bad. A new screen can range $100-$200 on eBay, and can be changed out easily with a small Phillips screw driver.

If you can see the HP logo, it's a driver problem. If this is the case, start the computer in Safe Mode by performing the following steps.

1. Make sure the computer is turned off.
2. Wait for the HP logo disappears and start pressing "F8" repeatedly.
3. A menu will appear. Select "Safe Mode" and let it boot up to the desktop.
4. Once at the desktop, hold down the "Windows Logo" key on the keyboard and press "r". A dialog will pop up.
5. Type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotation marks and click ok.
6. Click the "+" next to "Display adapters".
7. Right-click each entry under "Display adapters" and select "Uninstall" Click OK on the box to confirm. Don't worry, Windows will reinstall it after a reboot.
8. Once all entries are removed from "Display adapters", the category will disappear from Device Manager. Reboot the computer and start it normally.
9. Your screen will probably still be big and blurry. Log into Windows and adjust your resolution to fit your screen. If you select the wrong resolution, and your screen goes black or does not fit, DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING or you will be going back to step 1. The computer will revert back to the old setting after 15 seconds.
10. Once you figure out the right resolution setting, reboot one more time to make sure that the settings took effect, and you can use your computer once again. :)
