Try booting into "safe mode". by taping the f8 key while it is booting. If it runs ok there it may just be a video driver, as this is what it sounds like. If you have the same problem in safe mode, you have either a virus or spyware program that's in one or more files. If that's the case go back to sae mose, and run a good virus cleaner and spyware sweeper, Avg makes a free version, and Spyware search and destroy , and run that also. Try the video driver first, it may be a combination of both, that's one of the problems of doing a blind repair like this, we sometimes have to try a few things before nailing the correct problem. But it is more than likelly one of those two, good luck

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge


Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

My laptop freezes after start up. I start the computer and it runs normal until right after log in. I have roughly 30 seconds to 1 minute after logging in before the fan turns on and the laptop starts...


when was the last time your computer worked fine? run system restore and choose a restore point prior to when the issue started. if no restore point is available, open run and enter 'msconfig', go to startup and disable unecessary startup programs. also open the prefetch folder and delete its contents. then restart your system. if it's still slow, i suggest you backup your files and reinstall windows. make sure that you operate the laptop on a flat surface to avoid any ventilation blockage. hope it'll help. good day. =)'

Toshiba Satellite P305 shut down and won't start


Sounds to me simply like an overheating issue within the machine, try setting it near a fan and/or open the back compartment doors (with the machine OFF and battery packed removed) for an hour or so and then re-attach the compartment doors and try to power on the machine. Overheating within the system can seem nonexistent outside the machine but be stinging hot deep in the compartments. Simple answer, LET IT COOL OFF, could be hours, a day, or a week before it starts up again but don't panic yet. I had a laptop in the past that did numerous times.

My dell Crashes within minutes of turning it on!


This could be a multitude of things, but the first thing that comes to mind is an overheating problem.

To rule out other things, remove and reseat the RAM, HDD, CD/HDD drive, Battery, Wi-Fi/BlueTooth mini adapters, etc.

Also, for further clarification, is there any error indicated on the screen prior to the machine turning off?

Thanks,
Rob

LCD screen looks like bad TV reception


if the display returns to normal when you press the bezel at on end means there is a bad connection to the inverter behind the bezel itself or the inverter is ready to give up the ghost.
you can attempt to dismantlethe laptop and remone the lid or in some cases just unscrew the bezel and remove the plastic cover, the inverter is at the bottom of the display you can't miss it

hope this helps

Battery Problem?


HI,
Compaqs rely on a decent battery.
You could try removing the battery and see if it boots at all.
If it does,nt this will answer your question.

Suggest e-bay for a replacement, the chinese sellers offer great items for replacement, usually cheaper than U/K sellers. shipped and received within 10-14 Days.

Well start a bit slower then.
go into the bios at startup F2, and navigate around does it freeze there. if no then
start windows in safe mode F8 when windows logo shows.

If its not freezing then turn off the startup programs.
Start/run/msconfig and then uncheck load startup items
and start normally, click the dont show me this again /ok

If its freezing you may have a hardware issue.
if you have 2 sticks of memory remove on and or /reseat them
boot the dell diagnostics cd and check the cpu and memory.

Compaq Presario V2000 keeps freezing up


It could be something as simple as a corrupt graphics driver. If you have currently run a Windows update for hardware, there is a chance that a generic Windows driver has been installed and is not working correctly. Go to your task bar, as there is normally a graphics programme running enabling you to set the external monitor etc. If it's there and you have lost all the usual tabs for changing different properties, then the driver will need to be downloaded from your notebook manufacturer. If all in that looks ok then click Start>Run then type 'dxdiag' and hit enter and let windows do a diagnostic test on sound and video. If it's an intermitent problem, this is normally down to overheating, so check the vents around your fan and gently give them a hoover out. Failing all; keep an eye on your processor temperature, you can download allsorts of different free programmes that will run in your taskbar.
