I have a Toshiba G15 laptop that crashed during system recovey ghosting. Now it will do nothing but black screen and flashing hyphen. Any clues on how to get this up and running So I can do system...


Hello, go into your BIOS, make sure the hard drive is selected to boot from. Then, look for a setting for factory reset, make sure it is also enabled. Then shut the computer off for 2 minutes. Now hold the zero button down and press Start, windows should load and then you should see the factory restore/reset window warning you that all data will be lost. Click YES, select Recovery of Factory Default, then follow the prompts to get windows installed. Hope this helps.

Second solution:

Restart windows if the Factory reset does not work. Before you see the BIOS or windows logo, press several times on F8 till you see a black screen with a few lines of information. Click Last Known Good Config and then Enter.

Last Solution:

Restart Windows, press F8 several times before you see any writing or logos, once you see the black screen with a few white lines of information, press Repair my windows. If you get the windows could not fix this problem, select try another method, it should take you to another screen, select US, then user name, put in password if you have one, then select Restore.

Good luck

Canon Power Shot SD 400 Digital Elph - image not on screen


On most canon elph cameras you can either go through the menu and reset back to factory default and this might solve the black or white screen. If that does not work you should be able to hold the menu button down for several seconds until a reset prompt pops up. You will then click on yes for reset and this should completely reset the camera and the screen should be back to normal.

Kodak easyshare DX 7630 screen black in take a picture mode but is fine in review etc


Hey Wistra,
You could try resetting your camera to the factory settings by choosing the reset to default setting in the menu. If this doesn't work the sensor on the camera is most likely broken, and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If the camera was purchased less than a year ago the repair would most likely be covered under manufacturers’ warranty. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
