Its seems its not booting correctly. Just Insert Windows CD and fix the windows. Another solution is to press (I think) F1 or F11 or F12 (depending on the model) when booting the machine. It will take you to recovery mode. Use it to restore the boot section ONLY.

Black screen problem


it appears there is a high level of data corruption on your computer's hard drive sadly you must reinstall the windows OS however i do recommend using Ubuntu to access your files while in live cd mode by clicking try ubuntu or use mini-XP (a mini version of windows xp) and use an external drive or mega.nz (mega.nz for free can store your files up to fiffty gigabytes)

BATTERY LIGHT ORANGE-LAPTOP TURNS ON AND VAIO LOGO COMES UP BUT THEN SCREEN GOES BLACK AND WHITE CURSOR FLASHES ON TOP LEFT OF SCREEN


It could possibly mean a faulty hard drive. But before we conclude, try to boot to safemode through advanced boot options. How to get there? tap on F8 as soon as your computer turns on. If you get the advanced boot option, then good. Try to choose the option that says Last known good configuration first. If it does not work, try it again but this time choose safemode. If all else fails then you might need to do a full re-installation of the operating system. If still trying to do a re-installation does not detect the hard drive, then you will need to have it replaced.

Hi if you are getting nothing at all from the lcd screen (black screen with no cursor or icons) there are two possible causes 1st is the LCD itself it starting to worn out or sometime it is just the simple wire connecting the LCD to the mainboard to get the display that needs to be replaced.
If your getting a black screen with blinking cursor and you can still see the hp logo at startup you just need to update the video card driver of your laptop.
Have the HP check first the hardware side of your system so that they can replace the broken parts. thanks

Sounds like a software error. When the screen has been blaxk for a minute or two try hitting control+alt+del and use the task manager to start the process explorer.exe if so then there is a registry or windows error and needs to be repaired.

My Dell Vostro 1500 does not turn on right now. Basically, it freezes after the Dell logo. Only plain black screen. And it stuck there forever. Anybody help please? Thanks!

What happens it you press F8 or F12 when you turn on the computer do you get any different screen options.

Also to clarify is the screen staying on the Dell logo or is it going to a black screen.

Another thing to check does the computer still seen like it is booting up properly.

Computer displays black screen


Hi all you need to do is insert the windows CD and whilst booting up it will give you an option to recover windows files only if the cd recognizes a damaged OS, If not then you will have to go through the console which is a more technical method.

Try starting in SAFE mode by pressing F8 when the logo disappears. If u can get in safe mode goto DEVICE MANAGER and remove the display adapter and then restart the computer.
