SOURCE: LAPTOP WONT BOOT/START

To go through the recovery program I think you tap the F11 button as you start up. Press the power button and keep tapping F11 until the recovery program starts. I have restored my easynote L4 back to factory settings twice with this utility.

However, I get the impression you have already done this and you are experiencing what's known as the Blue Screen Of Death BSOD. Don't let this term frighten you, it doesn't mean the laptop is fried. My laptop only came with 250mb of ram, so I upgraded and installed another stick in the spare port. Had you installed any more ram yourself? As postmanfw says...need to know what was happening before you tried to restore back to factory settings.

SOURCE: Laptop won't boot (display problems)

If the diagnostics displays on the LCD screen but you get no display when Windows starts to load, it sounds like you have a video software driver problem. Try tapping the F8 key when you power on your laptop and boot in Safe mode. If it works in safe mode then you need to check you driver. You can also try connecting the laptop to an eternal monitor and see what happens.

SOURCE: Asus Eee pc 900 can't boot (blank screen)

Just had the same thing happen, and I thought it was the motherboard. Then a tech friend removed the battery and held the power button down. Then he replaced the battery, and it booted up fine! Good luck...

SOURCE: Windows XP will not boot

That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk and an external cd unit.

Computer beeps


If you try to power on your computer and nothing happens but a bunch of beeps there is something you can do. The beeps actually mean something. To make sure you can hear the beeps check in the bios options. If there is an option for a silent boot you won't hear any beeps. If you hear one beep every time your computer starts then you don't have to worry about this.

If you want to check this setting refer to my other tip on how to enter bios and change boot settings.

If you try to boot your computer and nothing shows up on your monitor do these steps first.
1-Check all your cables in the back of the computer.
2-check your power source and power cord to the monitor
3-try another monitor if possible
4-If on a power bar try to turn off the power bar and reset the breaker

If you try to boot your computer and nothing happens and you hear beeps look at this website. The beeps you hear are actually telling you what is wrong. Look at the website by clocking on the link below and click on the computer beep codes link. If you want to scroll down past the link it will show you bios codes to enter the bios in your computer

This may have happened after an update where a driver was updated that microsoft recommended but was the wrong driver   turn off automatically download and install updates   choose your updates wisely   now to fix that driver either try to roll back the driver   if you can figure out which one it was  even if you have to go to safe mode to do it    or try system restore  to locate system restore choose start/help and support  search for system restore

Acer Travelmate beeps 4 times & wont boot


Sounds like a RAM problem. Best bet is to purchase a stick of RAM from a store that will let you try it and return it if the problem is not solved. The beeping is a BIOS error code that signifies that something is wrong with your hardware.

If you have 2 sticks of RAM installed try removing one of them and then if the beep code happens again try to swap them out.

Fixed Disk Parameter Error - System Halted


Sounds like bad disk, although 3 beeps sometimes relates to a memory problem on some motherboard bios's. Click Start>run then type'chkdsk' and then Enter, this will run a damage segment diagnosis and repair, if capable.
