(to many programs running at the one time) scroll to the bottom of your screen toolbar right click select task manager applications & processes you will see what is running if you see something you dont need running select end now you might need to install more RAM
click start right click on my computer select properties you will see all imformation about your computer including installed ram and available ram
make sure the ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets

if you dontant to install more ram you could uninstall some unecessary programs
th ones accessing the computer at start up or

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode
click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work

Screen goes black after login


boot in safe mode or vga mode by holding f8 on startup. If you can see vga or safe mode the resoution is too high for the card or monitor. Once in via reduced mode uninstall your video driver and reboot. If it tries to add a driver make sure to set the resolution lower. If low resolution doesn't work then you may have a hardware problem.

Laptop won't start up


It sounds like your laptop is using it's external VGA adapter for its main display. Try holding down the Function (FN) on your keyboard located on the bottom left hand side and pressing F4 at the same time.

Restart and keep pressing f8. Select safe mode and see if you can login to safe mode. If that is not possible then keep pressing F10 key to start recovery tools. Just follow instructions on the screen in recovery tool to recover your Notebook back to factory settings.
If there is any important data on the notebook, then use data backup tool in REcovery utility.

Check the mounting screws on the cd burner,yes you have to remove the keyboard and speakers,and check the two visible mounting scews.....I rescently bought a used presario and discovered the yo-yo didn't mount the cd rom properly(no screws)...The screen you saw flashed is the BIOS,also check fitment of all plug in type accessories......
