Remove the battery. Keep pressed power button 30 seconds. Reinsert the battery. Try again. If not let it start like this - black screen. And press ONE TIME FN and F5 until the screen comes back again. OR FN and F9.
Step 1: Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive. Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working. All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.
Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated. An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated. A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode. Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button. Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds. Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen. Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod. Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it. Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons. Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen. Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it. Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again.
Follow the following solutions, this should fix up your trouble 1. Turn yourmonitor on. It should be on for at least 20 minutes before you continue. 2.Press the"Auto/Select" button on the front of your computer's monitor. Thescreen will be wavy while the adjustment happens. When the screen stops beingwavy, the faded colors should no longer be visible. Follow steps 1 and 2 if you do not have a disk for the monitor.
Isolate the issue by accessing safe mode, keep on tapping F8 button while system is starting and then choose safe mode on the advance boot option that will be listed on the screen. You may need to use the UP or DOWN arrow keys to scroll on the list and then press Enter button to select. Check if the system is still freezing inside safe mode, you may see that the desktop background goes black but don't worry this is normal since safe mode disables some running software on the background.
If system stops freezing while inside safe mode it means that youre having a software issue, perform system restore by clicking
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore
You should choose the date before the problem occured on the list of dates and click next to revert back the system to its previous state before the issue occured. Just follow the step by step procedure that will pop up on the screen then upon clicking the last button (Finish), Restart the computer.
If system didnt stop freezing while inside safe mode it means that you need to check the hardware components of system.
check if the system bottom part was hot to touch - if it is your having a system fan or heat sink problem that triggers the system to turn itself off automatically. This mechanism of your machine was made intentionally to make sure that the end user wont have any accidental issues.
You may need to contact the system manufacturer (if system was still under warranty) to have the system fan/heat sink replaced. If warranty was already expired you need to go to local computer service center to have this fix.
Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.
When it's rebooting, on the first blue screen press 02468 on the remote. This will force a software update. If you have trouble getting it enter at the right time or you just want to make sure, just keep pressing 02468 until it goes to the update. It won't hurt any thing. Hope this helps.
Don't disconnect it just because the screen freezes. This can happen if the battery is depleted too far, because the load is too great for charging AND running the device simultaneously. Leave it connected for 20 minutes or so, to see if the screen returns to normal appearance. If not, then you will be needing a new battery. Be sure to charge the new one BEFORE it is fully depleted. They are not NiCd batteries, so there is no need to fear ?memory effect". With NiMh and Lithium batteries, those days are gone, thank God!
Windows service pack 2 is a huge update and takes a long time to complete, I will suggest walking away from your computer and having lunch, go to sleep, watch a movie, etc... while the update finishes. If you have already done this with the same result? I would look for a Windows XP SP2 disk (XP with service pack 2 integrated) and try that. Otherwise Microsoft sent out many disks containing the SP2 update itself on a disk, and you could try the SP2 update from one of those (if you can find one) after your clean install. Good luck.
I am happy to say my problem seems to have been solved. I found 3 possible solutions during my search - may need to try all of them to see if it works.
1) Reset by pressing the button under the faceplate. (Did not work for me).
2) Master reset - switch off the unit and press on the right bottom corner of the LCD and switch it on. Release the power button when it powers on, while pressing on the R lower corner. This is supposed to erase all prior data. I could not master reset my unit, for whatever reason.
3) Software update: http://www8.garmin.com/support/collectio...
If you are a windows user you will want software version 2.4.1 as of
April 3 2007. This worked for me.
It could be a corrupt bios, which can be deleted with the removal of the bios battery or by the 'JBAT1' terminal to pins 2-3 then back to 1-2.
The bios is probably set to halt on all errors and thats why it only goes so far.
If there is no action at all; then there is a power failure to the motherboard or the processor has failed.
Depending on your notebook age is whether it's economical to repair.
