Just blank i want setup windows


Do you have Windows installation dvd? Or was your laptop shipped with a Windows preinstalled? If so try to reboot your Notebook and keep pressing Alt and F10, there should be an option for a factory restore. On my laptop they changed the bootloader so i can press F5 and select there a full system restore (not regular system restore point), try that as well. But if nothing shows up then there might be a hardware problem.

Remove printer drivers


You can check your laptop further by booting it from Safe Mode. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, try to tap continuously F8 function key on your keyboard immediately when you start your computer. It will lead you to an Advanced Menu from where you can choose the option "Safe Mode" and hit enter to boot your computer to safe mode. Now try to check the display driver in the device manager (Control Panel >System > Hardware >Device Manager) If it is not there, try to reduce the screen resolution and reboot your computer to the normal mode. If you are still getting the blank screen in Normal mode, try to boot computer back in Safe Mode and try to restore your computer to earlier time when it was working fine for you. To do so click on Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the "On this list, click a restore point" list, and then click Next. Now confirm the restoration and click on Next to complete the restoration and follow the wizard.
Cheers!

I own an acer travelmate 290, and getting no display on monitor.


First check to see if your PC has a built in factory restore, or system recovery, usually available using CTRL & F12, F10, etc. Check your manual, if you don't then, OK try this, Startup PC, press F8 at instant of turn on... choose Safe Mode. when you are asked if you want safe desktop or system restore choose restore, when you get to the restore menu, choose a date BEFORE you had problems there may only be one or two to choose from. just follow the instructions and you should be back to working with all that behind you. If that doesn't work, boot up on your Windows DVD and do a "Repair Install", If thats doesn't work do a format and a reinstall.

Need to restore to factory default but my lappy gives me a blank black screen with a blinking underscore on the top left of the screen.


There might be one step you could try to restore the system to factory specifications. When you turn the laptop on, and you see the Acer splash screen, press the Alt-F10 keys together at the same time, and this should hopefully bring the Acer eRecovery system up, provided that your computer has the built-in recovery partition. If it asks for a password, try using the default of "000000". If that doesn't work, then a password has been entered into the system, and there is no way to reset it, however there is a way to find out what the password is, however it does require the use of the Ubuntu Operating System (which is free to download, here)

Blank screen on acer aspire 5570z laptop


Hi Grneyes0725,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Could you please reboot Laptop in Safe mode.

Tapping F8 Key during Bootup. Select the option safe mode with networking.

Do the Error checking for each Hard Disk partition. Hope it fix the problem.

And if the problem is recent and date is known, its better to make a system restore.

1. Log on to Windows as Administrator.

2. Click Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> click on System Restore. System Restore starts.

3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.

4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system checkpoint in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next. A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.

5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer (normal mode now).

6. Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page appears.

7. Click OK.

Best of Luck & Regards
ELLIN
