    Put a bootable CD in the CD drive and see if you can boot the laptop.
    or, remove the hard drive and place it in an external USB enclosure. Plug that into the USB of a working computer and see if you can access the HD. If not the HD is bad. If you can you may have to reinstall your OS. Note: if you can get a copy of Live Linux from Ubuntu you can boot the Live Linux and see if you can access the HD. If you can not the HD maybe bad. There is always a chance the controller is bad on the Mother board.Here is a link to Ubuntu Linux
    http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download
    if you boot that from your CD you have the option to run Ubuntu from the CD. You can then try and access the HD.

A educated guess here (model is a rather old Sony) this set will blank or shut the tubes off if loss of vertical or horizontal deflection---the slight line at top suggests vertical

What I have done to confirm this is either use a scope and check for deflection or turn blue screen up slowly(blue is less likely to burn the tube screen) and see if just a line.

The set blanks the tubes to prevent a line being burnt instantly at normal brightness (all concentrated into a line) on the face of the tube.

If you are technical and have a volt meter you may be able to locate online a free copy of the service manual to check voltages etc.

I attempted to upgrade the RAM on my HP Pavilion zv5000. (the one under the keyboard) when I tried to turn it on, there is just a blank screen. Any idea what the problem is? The laptop was installed...


According to the link below you can do the upgrade. If is not working, make sure you have the memory seated correctly, then mix and match the memory and switch slots to find the problem memory. It may be incompatible with either the motherboard or the other memory sticks, or just a bad stick.

Vertical white lines appear on screen and music will play, beeping and a "chopper" noise have also occured. Replaced motherboard in Dec 08.


To isolate the issue.please connect the notebook to external monitor with the help of VGA port.(Blue PORT) on the notebook.if it good with out any lines.you need to fix the LCD screen of the Notebook.

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
